Hi folks. Not sure if this is the proper place to be posting SSU help questions. If not, please pardon me and point me to the appropriate thread. I am using SSU 4.2 in orbiter 2010 p-1 D3D9 client. OMS2 burn in OPS 105 and 2 OMS plane change burns in OPS 202 go off without a hitch. When I am closing in on the ISS and try to execute OPS 202 rendezvous burn, the OMS engines will not light off. OMS are of course on (ARM/Press) and EXEC at -15 seconds as usual. What am I missing here? Thanks.
Weird. Did you go back to MM201 after each burn? This is required to "reset" MM202 for another burn so it doesn't get hung up on the previous burn data.

Hi DaveS, thanks for the reply. I did reset MM202 by going back to MM201 then back, just as I had done between the 2 plane change burns. This is what has me puzzled. I have checked and re-checked all switch positions (ADI Attitude to INRTL, Dap to Auto/Pri/ etc.)

I think I figured out the problem. Perhaps a corrupt save file? After ISS synchronization was complete, I created a "Save file" 10 orbits from intercept. I created another "Save file" 5 orbits from intercept. And another at 1 orbit from intercept. It was this "Save file" 1 orbit from intercept that seemed to be the culprit. I loaded the "Save file" that was 5 orbits from intercept and tried to execute a 202 OMS test burn and they lit off just fine. I then reloaded this "5 orbits Save file", time accelerated to 20 km from rendezvous, set up the burn and this time the OMS worked as usual. I wonder if using "Quicksave" would have made a difference :shrug: Thanks again!

I just wanted check in here, how are things progressing on the code front? I'm ready for whatever you'll send my way.

Back at the JSON animation data for the VC for some days now, but only slow progress, I only work on it from midnight to 1 AM right now....

Anything preliminary you can share? Like one panel at the time?
