FORUM Forums Software CLS2SIM Software Frequently loosing connection to X-Plane Reply To: Frequently loosing connection to X-Plane


It is primarily a problem of X-Plane.
OK, maybe the check if the remote terminal is still responding can be solved differently, but it is X-Plane that is misbehaving in my eyes.

X-Plane’s problem is that the main thread seems to be so busy from time to time that it processes requests only extremely delayed.
It should leave the work to the worker threads and handle the request que itself.

And the extreme reaction time is always the case when there is a lot to do, e.g. when ortho data has to be reloaded, and I already had this problem in XP11.
XP12 is more resource hungry, so this error is more noticeable.

If a thread in X-Plane had so much free resources that it would immediately answer a request whether everything is still OK, there would not be these aborts.
And this answer to the “still alive?” requests must be given even if you are in the config menus.

Therefore the delay of e.g. 30 seconds is a workaround, which gives X-Plane time to get back to you.
