#417029 Updated modules

Posted by Pete Dowson on 18 October 2010 - 11:14 PM

Note that mostly this Announcement will contain only the changed modules. You will almost always need the main release installed first. For those please go to http://www.schiratti.com/dowson

The FS modules here, when supplied without Installer, need copying into the FS modules folder once extracted.

Please note the format here. The links for all the updates are listed first. For interim releases only, notes about changes are listed separately, below.

Install complete FSUIPC version 3.999z8 Install FSUIPC 3.999z8 for FS9 and before

-- For changes see the History document in the full install update.

FSUIPC version 3.999z9a only, for those with 3.999z1 or later already installed FSUIPC 3.999z9a

-- Fixes an ancient and obscure bug which nevertheless can crash FS on loading with certain INI file arrangements.

 

 

Install complete FSUIPC version 4.937 Install FSUIPC4937 for FSX and Prepar3D versions 1.4 and 2.0-2.4

FSUIPC version 4.937b, for those with at least 4.937 already installed FSUIPC 4.937b

-- Deletes orphaned profile entries from INI

-- Keeps axis assignments for new profiles if so requested

-- Fixes error in Lua mouse.wheel function.

-- Provides OOMcheck=Quiet option (no audible VAS warning)

-- Single byte offset 3124 gives P3D EXE version number, 10-14, 20-24.

 

WideFS version 6.999m WideFS 6.999m
Full release including documentation.
-- signature removed

-- See WideClient changes below.

 

WideClient 6.999m WideClient 6.999m
-- signature removed
-- 6.996 adds a colour facility to ipc.display.
-- Wideclient 6.997 with "event.textmenu" support in Lua (FSX only)
-- WideClient 6.998b supports text menus with more than 400 characters using FSUIPC 4.909 or later.
-- WideClient 6.999 fixes an odd bug when applications connect with bad Atom names.

-- WideClient 6.999b fixes a problem with Radar Contact options when generating APL plans from PM's CDU.
-- WideClient 6.999i supports extra Lua functions: see FSUIPC4 History

-- Wideclient 6.999j adds event.offsetmask.

-- The ButtonScreen now sends no button change for positions without a label or with a single space as a label.

-- Plan generation from the PM CDU "Route.bin" file deals with the latest format containing 'degree' signs.
 

PFC driver version 2.41 for FS9 and earlier PFC 2.41
PFCFSX driver version 4.41 for FSX, ESP and P3D PFCFSX 4.41
-- signatures removed

-- signature removed
-- 1.33 fix for AP APR mode not setting Glideslope option

-- 1.34 fix for macro name matching and proper macro file selection on aircraft change

-- 1.35 fix for a silly bug introduced in 1.34 which could significantly slow FS down!

-- 1.36 eliminates a 1-2 second pause when AutoSave options are in use

-- 1.37 added support for separate macros for positions on multiway switches

-- 1.38 and 1.39 only added clearer logging, especially for macro file selection

#451010 New FSUIPC4 registrations for 2013 need version 4.859n or later!

#472989 Airbus & FSUIPC.ini settings for AutoSave

Posted by Pete Dowson on Today, 09:40 AM

In the manual I read: 

Up to 32 “AlsoManage” lines can be given, numbered 1 to 32.

 

but I did not know that only 8 of these lines are supported, yes I think it would be great if this can be expanded.

 

Oops. It IS 32! I was looking at an old printed version of the manuals -- I am too mean to keep printing new editions! Sorry. It used to be 8 -- it was changed in version 4.80, a couple of years ago!

 

So, assuming you aren't using a pretty old version (check that first please), something else is wrong.

 

I notice here:

 

AlsoManage8=PMDG\PMDG 777X\PanelState\*.FLT.0.rte
 
(for examples), that although there are spaces in the complete pathname, it still works without the " ". So maybe you don't need those " " around lines 9 and 10 after all. Can you try without? (Sorry I'm hypothesising in these matters -- all this code is so old (as am I) that I can't recall it all, and delving into it sometimes takes longer than simply trying things).

#472987 Airbus & FSUIPC.ini settings for AutoSave

Posted by Pete Dowson on Today, 09:24 AM

The AlsoManage 9 and 10 is not working, everything else is working.

Any idea why?

 

As most certainly documented, there are only 8 AlsoManage entries supported. Up till now that's always been plenty. I could see if that's easy to extend and if so, do so.

 

One more question was it the line "Next2" for I did not find this in the manual.

 

 
"Next=" just keeps track of where, in your cycle of 10 saves, the next one to be replaced goes. You can see line 1= has the latest time, line 2 the earliest, so it is next to be removed and re-used.

#472863 Rudder & Steering Tiller problem

Posted by VHRAK on 19 October 2014 - 09:46 AM

Being an old senior citizen and new to FSUIPC I have a small problem and have spent many hours trying to come up with a solution and thought " lets ask the experts"

The only aircraft I fly is the Sim-Avionics B777 in FSX......There are 2 controllers FDS FC1 which controls the toe brakes. They work fine. The other FDS FC1 controls the Elevators, Ailerons, Rudder and steering Tiller. Everything works except the Rudder & Steering Tiller. All the controls are assigned via FSUIPC. Herewith my fsuipc4 ini file for your perusal.

#472535 Prepar3d V2 - scenery issues

Posted by von on 11 October 2014 - 10:02 AM

With so many versions of P3D is is hard to understand where your program "installer"  is installing your software properly and supported / working properly.

 

I wonder how many pilots still have old versions of P3D installed?

Because you are spending a lot of time fixing your software for "all" previous versions of P3D.

 

I am current at P3D V 2.4

 

Actually, my specific question:

 

Does your current product installer setup file install your software automatically to P3D v2.4?

#472030 FSC can't recognize important pathes (solved)

Posted by VolkerHeine on 23 September 2014 - 05:28 AM

Hi Morton,

 

The ONLY, however indeed serious, problem is that FSCommander won't show up the 'Z' drive to the FSX server path in the saving dialogue, which makes it impossible to save any flightplans. 

 

 

I'm sure you understand the following text.
If it is an error of the FlightSim Commander, then it would be a big problem.

 

Regards,

Volker

Posted by BD-FSPS on 14 September 2014 - 10:13 AM

Your FSX frame settings never changes. It is consider the upper limit for frames.

 

You will have to READ the product's manual and understand how the application works.

#471701 Toper 3 not working

and also I would like to know what was fixed just out of curiosity. =)

 

UI was re-built from the ground up. Using template from earlier versions/projects seemed to fail on some machines, for reasons that are not known to me. 
I will be issuing an official update soon.

#471547 LUA COM library

Posted by Pete Dowson on 09 September 2014 - 12:35 PM

Ok, I did some testing with updated code:

handle = com.open("COM3",9600,0) --COM 3 opened, 9600bps, no handshake
while 1 do
com.write(handle, "a")
ipc.sleep(500)
com.write(handle, "g")

ipc.display("overhead driver ok")

end

which does something... the message appears, the script runs, the Receiving LED on Arduino blinks quickly, but the arduino is not receiving what it is expecting to (the "a" should turn on a LED, the "g" should switch the LED off - which works from any Serial terminal app, so the arduino code is correct). Is here any way how to log the outcoming traffic from LUA?

 

 

 

I always debug serial port (COMn) problems using the free debugging tool "PortMon" from http://technet.micro...b/sysinternals/

#471415 Who can help me

Posted by Paul Henty on 05 September 2014 - 09:02 AM

Hi Gerrit,

 

From what you wrote in post #9 above, you seem to be following the correct procedure.

 

The steps are written in the document called "installing and registering FSUIPC4.pdf". This is found in the Zip file containing the FSUIPC installer.

 

The procedure is the same for registering FSUIPC, except you just choose the WideFS radio button.

 

You say that the key disappears from the screen when you press ok. Normally, a message appears under the key input area. It will either say "Thank you. Registered okay", or tell you that the key is invalid.  With invalid keys it blanks out the key input fields. With a successful registration the key stays. 

 

Are you getting a message underneath the key saying the key is invalid?

 

The only way I could get the key to disappear without a message appearing underneath was pressing the [clear] button.

#471160 Can't create sessions on multiplayer?

Posted by scoobflight on 27 August 2014 - 07:37 PM

you always have to prearrange a session as you need to have the IP addresses of the participants.

 

post on this forum and ask for folks to contact you.  arrange a time via PMing each other and sharing IP addresses.

#470984 MyTraffic X installation not working - checklist

Posted by NMaggio on 22 August 2014 - 01:29 PM

This program is not for the faint of heart or the novice simmer. As you pointed out, the program is robust. Berkhard had much to deal with in developing MTX due to the complexities of FSX and scheduling airlines for the entire country. Since I mostly fly from JFK, trying to schedule airlines to an already packed ramp is virtually impossible. If installed properly, there are plenty of AI aircraft to complete the reality.

 

Thanks,

#470878 Idea's for Heathrow or Gatwick Airport Tower

Posted by mc16v on 19 August 2014 - 03:56 PM

I have Gatwick and Heathrow (self build) and dont have problems at Gatwick with the single runway operation, it can be a little tight at times so you have got to be on the ball getting the departures rolling as soon as the preceeding arrival clears the runway. - another opportunity where an actual simulated highspeed taxiway would be beneficial...
