Doug,

Not sure if you're confusing people here, but I'm the developer of SimSync/TrafficSync so I'll reply to your last post, Fred is someone who has been testing it since I released it.

In terms of the visuals lining up, SimSync doesn't do anything to 'adjust' the camera view that is being used by each IG. It sounds as if you have been using some functionality in WideView that creates/adjusts cameras on the clients so that the images are aligned. Is that correct?

There are other approaches to addressing the camera alignment issue; there are payware solutions that make it relatively more user friendly (such as FlyElise), but I think it is also possible to sort this using the ViewGroups in Prepar3d. With these (and they can be edited and previewed on the fly), you can create a custom view for each IG and align them as you choose, including addressing the bezel issue.

In simple terms if you imagine the complete view outside the cockpit as being a sphere centred on the pilot, ViewGroups allow you to define what specific subsection of that sphere you want to P3D to render for each IG independently. You can adjust the size of the view, the X, Y and Z coordinates and the Pitch, Bank and Heading of the view. It might take some trial and error to get things going, but it should be possible to do it just using the ViewGroups functionality in P3D.

In terms of the crashes with TrafficSync, if you would like to persevere, could you edit the TrafficSyncClient.ini file and set the Log option to Log=Normal, and then try again. This should create some log files in the %programdata%/SimSync directory. If so could you give that a go and post them here that would give me a start in figuring out what the issue might be.

Could you also confirm what Port settings you are using for TrafficSync, and the Prepar3d version you are using both for the Server and the IG's.

Regards

Simon.

Yes sir, correct.

>>...ViewGroups in Prepar3d...<<
I've not heard of this, will look at it.

>>Could you also confirm what Port settings you are using for TrafficSync, and the Prepar3d version you are using both for the Server and the IG's.<<
I'm using 23332 for all (6) cmptrs both Sim & Traffic. P3Dv4.5 on all. If I need to set a Port in P3D I wouldn't know how.

Before tackling the Traffic issue I'll look further into ViewGroups and see if there's alignment hope. I wish I had the room for projectors.

Major tkx Simon!

Doug,

You need to use a different Port for TrafficSync. Could you set the Port for TrafficSync to 2 higher than the one you are using for SimSync, and see if that stops the crashes.

Simon.

Hi Simon,

Yep, that did it I set Xfic to 23334. Both SimSync & Traffic Sync auto-starts with no issues.

With high hopes I'll look at " ViewGroups" tomorrow. Is this a feature within P3D? Unfamiliar with this one.

Doug,

It's a feature built into P3D. I found this video that explains quite a lot of the info that I think would help you. It takes a little while to get going but he does cover the detail that I think you need.

In this case he has all his displays connected to a single PC so sets up multiple views on one PC. With multiple IG's, the principle is the same, you just set up a ViewGroup on each PC with a single View in the Viewgroup.

Doug....If you are still having problems setting up "ViewGroups" there is one more consideration you might try...

You can try using just TrafficSync with WideView.  That is, launch WideView as you normally would and then launch TrafficSync.  Do not launch WideTraffic (and be sure that the associated WT app is not launched).  TrafficSync will then position your AI traffic accordingly and you will gain the benefit of a much smoother AI experience.  This should work independent of whether or not you are using ViewGroups.
