    hi,

    thanks for your work Wagnard.

    Downloaded, unpatch in admin mode, update with dragging and repactch on admin several times, still no motion in ED (and no values in tuning center).

    Is the plugin still working on dec, 28 ?

    Hi - I can offer some help here. Yes, the current plugin works very well.
    From your posting I assume you have had a plugin working for motion before?

    Try the following;

    when you have unpatched a plugin and before re-patching the new one - run ED for a few mins and fly your ship about in all axis then close ED.

    Update your plugin using 'plugin updater'. Then re-patch it in 'game manager'.

    Start game engine and ED. Make sure the indicators show blue in game manager and game engine to show all is patched ok and running your ED profile in both. Use tuning centre to check/adjust if req'd.

    Alternatively (and the way I always update an existing patch for ED) is to just change the data in the XML file on your pc to the same data as in the updated XML file posted by mr Wagnard (I just cut and paste it in). Gets the motion up and running again in minutes (and keeps all your previous other settings intact).

    thanks to Kev B and Wagnard;

    Found my problem, my simtools version was definitively too old.
    Just uninstall simtools completely, reinstall last (2.5.1) and repatch like normal procedure, motion works instantly.

    Thanks for support here :)

    Nice one @Wagnard . Just turned pc on after a busy day at work to find ED update required (sheesh!!). Just downloading update now and will update the xml again. Thanks for the quick turnaround.
