Build Version # when you first started experiencing this issue:
In VR, the logbook still pops up very briefly but visibly and then auto-returns to the plane. From there, a flight time is being logged and entered into the logbook until user returns to the main menu.
Whether the logbook popup was avoided or not, the brief period of time after the logbook popup and completing shutdown should not lead to a new logbook entry with (usually) zero minutes.
It’s kind of like how they removed the “Press any key to continue” screen. Some users reported that when the sim was having connectivity issues this screen would reappear. Using the equivalent of an AutoIT script to press a key for us isn’t really addressing the problem.
In light of the empty log book entries, I would rather have the logbook appear, and I’ll manually hit the Main Menu button.
Honestly, for a major title, the menus are super messed up. The UI has weird code names that look like file names on the world map screen. Options don’t stick. Like when I try to make weather adjustments or time adjustments pre flight, it just loads whatever the hell it wants when I click fly now, often resetting it to default settings. Sometimes, I just want to give up with this sim.
That’s what I’m seeing as well. In VR my viewpoint shifts to the center of the plane, the logbook screen flashes, then it resets my view back to the default viewpoint for the aircraft. Very disorienting; I don’t get sick in VR, but this one “feature” nearly did me in.
I don’t understand why a programmer decided that the option to disable the log screen decided that autoclicking the button is better than adding an IF THEN to the end of flight code. All it has to do when it detects the flight is ending is to figure out whether the option is checked and if it is, DONT RUN THE CODE THAT BRINGS UP THE WINDOW
Confirm. Logbook is broken when choosing the Option with this weird name for preventing the Popup Logbook Window to show up before the Plane is really shut down. Oh Boy. Did you ever test this Options before going to public?
My logbook stopped registering takeoffs when I started using an external ATC program and stopped using the internal flight planner. Now the sim only records takeoffs. There must be a connection with using the internal flight planner and logbook takeoffs.
I don’t follow the logbook since it doesn’t properly track flights and I lost all of my hours back with SU3 and the server issues. Now I use Volanta and let that track all my flights and hours.
I find the thought process behind this difficult to understand. A large portion of the community want the log book to not pop up when you shut down the battery, and/or avionics, and the solution was to still allow it to pop up, but run the “Continue” code so we just don’t see it.
Its disappointing that someone signed off on that, if I’m honest. The zeroed log entry being created has been around for ages, so they must have known it would do this.
In addition to what you mention, @hobanagerik, in VR the window does pop up briefly then close on its own and then resets the viewpoint to the center of the A/C. It’s very disorienting because it happens in less than a second.
