Hello, 
This beta update worked when I first launched P3Dv45 with the default scenario.
Then I closed the simukator and relaunched it with AS4, Rex SF3D and tried to load another plane (Dash8) at some addon airport. 
The whole scene loaded but Ezca had crashed, here's a screenshot I took : 

That Ezca window stayed at the same state when the scenery loaded...
Dunno what to do next...

Do you reboot the PC between each test or flight or aircraft change?

Are all your add-ons and aircraft already fully supported in P4Dv4.5?

Mine are not and could crash the Sim at any time. Bad for testing .

I just done a full uninstall reinstall of Ezdok but same problem arises again.
I've updated P3D client only from v4.4 to v4.5, all addons used were updated to be compatible with v4.5.
The weird thing is that Ezdok worked, but only at the very first launch..

I updated Client initially, and later Content and Scenery to P3Dv4.5, all OK (no crash).

My Active sky, for example, is only for P3Dv4.4.
Where did you get Active Sky for P3Dv4.5 ?

Just wondering:
Which Dash8 are you using with ezdokv3 beta for P3Dv4.5 that has already been updated  for P3Dv4.5?


Do you reboot the PC between each test or flight or aircraft change?

You will find an Open Beta of ASP4 https://hifisimtech.com/downloads/" rel="nofollow - here, download version 7035 .

I'm unable to use my "Cooly Hat" for looking arround. And i cannot use "S" or "A" to change outside views. The first point is the most important. Any solution for this?

An open beta is for testing ... Active Sky has not released a version for P3Dv4.5 yet.

My hat switch is working.
I do not use the "S" or "A".

The problem is:
When you are testing a Beta (ezdok) with another Beta (Active Sky or an aircraft that has not been updated yet for P3Dv4.5) which is causing a crash?

In my case, I will not test with a product not already approved for P3Dv4.5 by the developer.

I have Active Sky and FSGRW (Flight Sim Global Real Weather) for P3Dv4.4.
So, I will go without a weather program while testing P3Dv4.5 until one of them is finally approved for P3Dv4.5.

Same with payware aircraft.

Did you set up your joystick (throttle) in the Joystick Configuration menu? Also, is the coolie hat set up correctly in P3D to pan? For the cycle view issue, are the Internal EZCA Cycles set up for S, A, Shift+S and Shift+A in the Map of Assignments? Have you run the Config Tool?

Ok, I don't get it...
Uninstalled Ezdo v3, then P3d Client 4.5, then reinstalled Client 4.5 (rebooting between each action). 
Shaders and prepar3dcfg deleted and default scenarion loaded to check if anything was wrong : all was fine...
So I installed Ezdok with the flight1 wrapper and upgraded it to Beta .62. I loaded then the default scenario and : 
https://tof.cx/image/0jcrR" rel="nofollow">
Ezdok was working (remember beta .62 and P3D v4.5 !! ), maybe not fully but it didn't crash ...
Then, I installed the .65 version and baam : same as before :
https://tof.cx/image/0j2vU" rel="nofollow">

All those steps were tested without any wheather addons or whatsoever...

I'm lost now ...

Can you confirm that Prepar3d.exe and EZCA.exe are set to Run as Administrator in Properties/Compatibility and that the C:\Program Files\EZCA3 folder is given an exception in your virus scanner? What happens if you disable EZCA in your exe.xml and start EZCA.exe after P3D has loaded?

I'm back to P3D v4.4 and maybe will try again when Ezca will get out of beta : lost too much time trying to get it work.

Guys, 
The base .53 version in the store of Flight1 only !
The next 62..63..65 versions - exists as updater only.
Anyway before install updater,  you must install base .53 version.  
Also you can roll back in any time to previous version. 
Just run updater with desired EZ version.

I just purchased last night via Flight1 after updating to P3d V4.5. Ensured clean install. My ezdok refuses to launch with P3D.

If I manually start the program, eventually comes on but hangs for message "Connecting with simconnect..." after 10 mins or so then crashes. 

There is an entry for ezdok in exe.xml and appears to be correct.

Any ideas on a fix or workaround? Or should I have purchased chaseplane instead??

In my first post at the top of this topic I mentioned what I did:

Win7-64
P3Dv4.5 (Client update), OK
Installed EZdok V3 Pro using F1 Purchase Agent , OK
Installed the EZdok V3 0165 update , OK

JJ, ensure EZCA.exe and config.exe (in the Program Files\EZCA3 folder) are set to Run As Administrator in Properties/Compatibility tab. Same for Prepar3D.exe. Also, ensure there is an exception in your virus scanner for the EZCA3 folder. Finally, when you launch P3D, does the EZCA Launcher appear on the taskbar? Are there any EZCA entries showing in Task Manager after P3D runs? Also, there are 4 simconnect versions that should be installed (unless your OS is set to Japanese or Russian) in the Prepar3D v4\redist\Interface ESPv1, FSX-RTM, FSX-SP1 and FSX-SP2-XPACK subfolders. Just drill down, find and run the SimConnect.msi files. Also, reboot before testing.

Mine does the same thing, but re-opens and closes several times until p3d scenario screen, at that moment it stays open and works just fine. Don't know what triggers with the initial open close open close issue really.

I uninstalled then installed everything again... .53 install then updated 62..63..65.

Strangley without doiing anything different, EZCA starts, restarts, closes, restarts closes several times then when the scenario opens again. Then I have to manually start EZCA once the plane and scenario have loaded just to get cameras. AS16 is grayed out too!

Are you starting with the default F22 at KVPS Rwy 19? When you launch P3D and it opens the scenario window, is EZCA showing in Task Manager?:



And, did you follow the steps in my previous reply? Further, in EZCA under File/For Advanced Users do you see this:

Hi Randy,

Yes & Yes to both. I have noticed when loading P3D v4.5 without Active sky and ASCA, EZCA does attempt to load several times. as previously then it runs no problems when I manual load again in the scenario. Is this something to consider when loading P3D?

Regards, 
JJ


Posted By: RRVyper
Date Posted: April-14-2019 at 11:05am
JJ, I think you should open a support ticket. You can do so at the bottom of this page:

http://ezdok-camera.com/troubleshooting" rel="nofollow - http://ezdok-camera.com/troubleshooting

I am still on P3D v4.4 but for me, when I start P3D, the EZCA Launcher pops into the taskbar and then goes away, but only once. If you are running full screen, try setting window mode in P3D, shut down and try again. Also, double-check the exe.xml file. Another option is to disable any other entries (Disabled=True) so that only EZCA is launched via exe.xml. You can also set Manual Load to True and it will prompt you to run any enabled programs in there. There's not much more I can think of, other than what I previously mentioned. Ermm

Randy

Edit: I must have been thinking of FSX as P3D v4 Full Screen is actually a borderless window so will not make any difference.

Ok,
You got Ezdok installed now.
That is good.

Can you post a short video of what you are seeing?
Then I will try the same in P3Dv4.5.

Hi Mike,

I wish I had done that too! At least I'd have cameras in chase plane. I own both Ezca 2 and 3 and nothing works for P3d v4.5. Start up with EZCA .65 seems sporadic. I've tried all day to replicate what I saw yesterday only for EZCA to sit showing Connecting with simconnect... message for ages! I am going to request a refund from flight1 and go down the chase plane route I guess too!

Be aware that HiFi Sim just released a new ActiveSky version explicitly for P3Dv4.5 compatibility, version 7044 (Beta).  https://hifisimtech.com/downloads/#ASP4" rel="nofollow - https://hifisimtech.com/downloads/#ASP4

Anyway, EZCA is still unable to recognize ActiveSky.

Hi!
An update is required only if ActiveSky is modified along with a DLL that provides weather data. Tonight there will be a fresh build 3.0.1.66 compatible with AS B7044.

Also in the evening there will be a release version of EZCA 2.8 compatible with P3D 4.5 and the latest AS B7044.

How do users know when that happens? How to verify? Which dll is it (as an example)?

I see v3.0.1.66 is not out yet :-(. Yesterday I did a complete flight with 3.0.1.65, P3D 4.5, AS 7044 and the FSLabs A320 and clearly Ezdok picked up the turbulence from P3D, not from AS. I had a continuous light (and unrealistic) shaking through all the flight, although the weather conditions were very good. Decreasing the turbulence parameters in AS did not change anything...

hello,

I just updated to P3d4.5 and installed the EZupdate from this thread, flawlessly

active zoom with middle mouse appears not to be working correctly

if I quit and restart, it works initially, then it stops again

If I am understanding correctly, it works perfectly, then stops working - even for the same camera view - is that what you are saying? I can't remember if Active Zoom is camera-dependent or not (I'm not at my sim computer). What about Emulate MM Button?

Active Zoom works until I take any action in EZDok (panning, switching camera, etc), thence I have to restart it

Emulate MM button is set on "hold", I did not touch anything after upgrading to the Beta for p3d4.5

Could there be a conflict with your mouse software? Is it a gaming mouse? I expect you ran the Config tool? Can you zoom by holding the space bar (assuming that’s the key you have assigned) and scrolling the wheel? Unfortunately, I can’t try to duplicate this until Thursday. Also, confirm you are not disabling controllers in P3D.

yes, I ran the config tool, on every update

it's a RAT7 MMO Saitek, I had never experienced the issue so far, yet

now that you mention it, since p3d4.4 update, also the space bar zooming function stopped to work (yet I confirm the MMB worked as expected, on 4.4)

nevermind about the space zoom & wheel scroll function: the control had been disabled - not by me - in p3d mouse controls menu (?!)...now working

another hint, maybe:
when I press the MMB, on the EZ interface "keyboard is blocked" appear (so it's activated), yet the wheel scrolling does not produce any zoom

In your mouse software do you have anything assigned to the MM button or scroll wheel? What if you uninstall the mouse software and just use the default MS driver?

For me, the active zoom is always ON, whether I enable it in EZCA or not. More specifically, wheel press hold zoom is always ON whether I select Simple mode or not. You could try backing up your standard.xml file, deleting it, disabling EZCA via the exe.xml file and starting P3D. It will rebuild with default assignments/axes. Mouse look should work (SPACE bar), with mousewheel zoom. Then, shutdown P3D, wait until the P3D process ends, re-enable EZCA in the exe.xml file, run the Config Tool and then launch P3D. If Active Zoom works, just re-do your keyboard/joystick assignments. Note that Active Zoom is only available for the VC.

Randy

Edit: Btw, I am now using P3D v4.5 with EZCA v3.0.1.66

Randy 

the Cyborg RAT7 has its default assignments: the wheel movement scrolls, and the press toggles the mouse movement function, from movement to scrolling

I've deactivated the Mad Catz software, with no changes (the same software never had any issues on my second P3d - 4.4 in this case -, installed on the same system, on another OS -win7: there, having NOT installed the 3.01.65, everything works fine)

I've installed the 3.0166 beta, with no changes

is it advisable to try to revert to a previous EZ software release ?

Is the scroll wheel also your MM button? I have to keep it pressed while also scrolling the wheel in order to zoom. It sounds like you are using a latched function (press once holds the button down, press again to release the button?). Are you moving the mouse to scroll or just spinning the wheel?

Does the Debug window register the MM button:

Might be worth a try. It's strange it works OK on your other machine.

Not only does Version 3 (which I downloaded through Flight1) not install I now cannot install my version 2? I've tried numerous times and get a variety of errors from floating points to incompatibly notice. Original version worked great with P3D version 3 but now nothing works with p#d version 4.5

I feel like a frustrated beta tester which I did not pay to be.

Which OS? What virus program are you using? Are you on P3Dv4.5 Hotfix 1? Uninstall v3 using Apps & Features (or Programs & Features depending on OS) and delete the C:\Program Files\EZCA3 folder. Download EZCA v3:
http://flight1.100megabyte.com/EZdokProV3.exe" rel="nofollow - http://flight1.100megabyte.com/EZdokProV3.exe
Right-click the file, select Properties and put a checkmark in the Unblock box beside Security.
Open the exe.xml file located in the folder %APPDATA%\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v4 using notepad or your favorite text editor and paste into the post which answers my previous questions.

Is there also an updated version for the EZCA v2 and not only for the new v3? I don't need the new v3 features and happy with the version I have right now.

I am having also an issue with EZDOK not starting with P3Dv4.5 on a vainilla install.  Installed the one in the Flight1 Purchase agent version 3.0.1.53 and after starting the sim an incompatibility  message appeared with link to the forum where I downloaded and installed version 3.0.1.62, but when starting the sim EZCA didn't appear, came back to the Forum and installed version 3.01068 but that didn't get it to work either. Can someone explain how to get EZCA to work and why isn't there a full installer for v4.5.

Thank you and regards

Joaquin

If you use EZDOK 3 latest version with Aerosoft Airbus Prof and ASP4, you will get horrible banking and jerking and up and down unless you turn off the DHM enable the taxi option in effects and the most important, turn off all your winds especially turbulence in ASP4. It appears EZDOK cannot handle the ASP4 winds especially turbulence.

Erratic movement in the AS A3xx is caused by low frame rates and is well documented on their forum. Also, both AS and FSL use 'invisible' spoilers in their flight model so you need to turn down the Spoilers slider in the effects module. Finally, due to the way AS models ground shaking, you must apply the 'Taxi Speed Fix' in the effects studio. I'm not seeing any problems with turbulence, but admit I don't fly in it much.

Its basically this.  Very poor programming job and very sloppy code. EZCA has always been this with terrible customer service and developers that only care about their latest whizbang instead of cleaning up their code and making it work better with the sim. It has always been that way for many years. It will probably never get better. And we the ones that pay the money for this nonsense are the ones that suffer with it.  We keep hoping it will get better, but I seriously doubt it ever will. Thats why I own both chase plane and EZDOK.  EZDOK has great special effects but poor compatibility and terrible problems with Simconnect. Chase plane has poor effects but is reliable and loads every time. Even across a network.  Maybe someday a decent developer will create the balance of both worlds. Im not holding my breath.

Are you using a multi-PC network setup with P3D/Simconnect, ActiveSky and Ezdok?

Do you have both ChasePlane and Ezdok installed at the same time and using both now?

Ok, your networked setup : P3D/Simconnect, ActiveSky and Ezdok and PROATCX.

I did not ask if Ezdok was networked.

Do you think your custom multi PC flight sim'ed network is causing problems?

Hi, I realized today that in the EZCA main window AS-16 is not highlighted, and also on the effect studio panel, no reference to AS16. It was there before, what could it be? (AS16 for P3D v4.5 on separate computer, it connects regularly to the sim). Thanks.

Yes, sorry, I found out soon after writing the post. I had installed the latest AS beta (7180 if I remember correctly) and of course it needs an EZCA update in order to be seen.

I suspected as much. I believe you can reinstall the full v7070 from HiFi. Or wait a few days until Marniftarr updates EZCA.
