HELP NEEDED WITH "PAUSE ON TASK SWITCH" PLEASE!
« on: May 24, 2018, 08:22:27 PM »
Hello friends! I need help with an oddity in P3D V4.2 Please. I have a 4 monitors setup. Windows 7-64-pro, FSUIPC 4.1. The issues I'm having that despite having the "Pause on task switch" option unchecked in P3d, the sim still pauses every-time I click on anything external - even the desktop, with both the sim windowed or full screen. then continues once I click back anywhere on the sim. I even went into the P3d.Cfg and nixed the "pause on lost focus" line, still no joy. Any ideas guys? I would really appreciate any suggestions. Thank you so much.
Marco. :idiot:

Are you sure it is still pausing, or is the sound just muting.  Under the sound options ensure mute on lost focus isn't what is happening.

Trev, you're the best!! lol. So a little history as this may help other fellow simmers. it turns out as some of you already know that windows itself has that feature (pause on task switch) built right into the OS. So if that happens to be turned on, it matters not if you turn that feature off in the sim  - because windows will over-ride it. So the key combination to turn it off/on in windows is F3+P.   So once I did that, the sim stopped pausing on lost focus, but the sound was still muted however. That is when I did what Trevor suggested, which fixed the whole thing. Wa-bang! Works like a charm now.
Thank you.
Cheers. marco.  :idiot:
