#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.

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

Install complete FSUIPC version 4.939n Install_FSUIPC4.939n for FSX, FSX-SE and Prepar3D versions 1.4 and 2.0-2.5

-- Supports PMDG 737NGX data  mapping from update SP1d

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

#450631 FS Commander won't let me load flightplans?

Posted by JerryJet on 03 January 2013 - 12:42 PM

So it can save flightplans in those formats, but can't then reload those very same flightplans unless they exist in FSC's format? And I paid $40 for this??? Can I just say how stupid that is?

Flightsim Commander is released as shareware letting you evaluate the program to see if it suits your needs. You can also read the exhaustive manual which explains how and why FSC saves flightplans. Numerous different planes/companies can be chosen when saving, but one is always checked and can never be unchecked. I'll let you figure out what that means.

#479793 MyTraffic X installation not working - checklist

Posted by Burkhard on 04 May 2015 - 07:10 AM

Please try the Communicator attached here, just is programmed for excessive size of scenery.cfg - never had assumed FSX to work with more than 200 addons, and you have 800 :)

#479633 Collecting items for a patch to MyTraffic 6.0

Posted by Der Flieger on 01 May 2015 - 07:30 PM

I think the 707s have been withdrawn since 2007 actually. So for quite a while now... ;)

The problem in Joburg is, that I only get the Kulula and Comair flights (Kulula is indeed a subsidiary of Comair) and many other airlines like SA Airlink, 1time, etc when putting my slider above 50%. When I have my traffic set to 50% I just have the SAA aircraft and a few foreign widebodies displayed.

Mango aircraft are never displayed, not even at 100%...even though the repaints are in the 737 folder. And just as a sidenote, 1time also has been closed for several years now...I think they ended operations in 2012.

As you can see the SA skies are a bit outdated in Mytraffic. Please have a look at a random day and time on flightstats where you can see the typical traffic for Joburg: http://www.flightsta...tusByAirport.do

Thanks! :)

#479240 FSX FIBER ACCELERATOR doesn't run on FSX-SE update

Posted by BD-FSPS on 24 April 2015 - 10:43 AM

Naturally yes ... Expect it in the next days. (To get the update - allowing the app to check for it - run Fiber alone, not along FSX Steam as it will produce an error that way).


(Most webstores notify their customers for any update however. You can get the full installer from there to be sure).


EDIT: We managed to compile the code very fast this time, so the update is online already. Just follow the above procedure to get it or follow this link directly:

#479219 Possible to transfer settings?

Posted by Gypsy Baron on 23 April 2015 - 10:43 PM

I used to have a dual-boot Win7/XpPro setup and did the 'copy ini files' with no problems. As I recall, I jsut made sure the letter assignments for my controllers matched in FSUIPC4 between the two OS's. I always use the 'assign letters' for controllers so that any renumbering of the devices by Windows doesn't negate my many, many hours of 'customizations' ( My current INI file is 5595 lines long! )

#478726 FSX SDK installs but no simconnect.dll exists

Posted by flying-w on 14 April 2015 - 02:48 PM

Hello Ray,

The SDK is only part of the equation.  It does not install the SimConnect client (.dll) in its own right, but once you have the SDK you will have access to an MSI installer from which you can install the client.  When you installed FSX, that would have deployed the SimConnect client also, and after removing it so to was the client removed (or at least in some part to make it unusable). 


The STB user guide has reasonable coverage of all of this, starting on page 83. 


I wish Microsoft had made SimConnect redistributable, would have saved a world of pain.

#478354 Towards MyTraffic3D V2 and support for Prepar3D V2

Posted by DylanM on 09 April 2015 - 06:37 PM

Different ways to install to begin with, and poor performance - the same situation I get ,ore than twice the frames under FSX SP2 than P3D V2.5.


MyTraffic 5 has been withdrawn from sales now :)

Great to hear it's really close...! I really need to give my new rig a workout this weekend [hint, hint] :mrgreen:


As for performance issues, wonder what's so fundamentally different now in the traffic system between FSX and P3D? Something LM have changed, or is it the rendering? I'm still planning on using the freeware Traffic Optimizer to help with performance...

#478003 Wishes for new airports/ major changes

Posted by Burkhard on 30 March 2015 - 08:20 PM

Well, I use fourth party because yiu are first, I'm second, and the third party always is Microsoft resp. Lockheed Martin. So anybodyelse is an additional party.


For the moment I recommend to edit MyCommercialRoutes.dat with Notepad, and exchange OTBD by OTHH, then save and compile.

#477781 Manage Prepar3D.cfg

Posted by macca22au on 23 March 2015 - 12:22 PM

Ian P, you sound as stern as your picture looks, however...............MyTraffic3D5.4 worked well in P3Dv2.1-4,  it is in v2.5 that the compatibility errors arose because LM shifted two essential files to new locations.  


Many computer savvy simmers have worked out how to re-designate the Paths.


Many not so savvy users have read that Burkhardt has MyTraffic 6, which resolves these path issues. out with the testers at the Release Candidate stage.


Impatient as I am, the Release to Market shoiuld not be too far distant.  So I wait, but one thing I have noted with Burkhardt, he makes changes quickly as new base programme changes arrive..We should be very grateful for his energy.

#477710 Towards MyTraffic3D V2 and support for Prepar3D V2

Posted by CDreier on 20 March 2015 - 06:37 PM

I have been lurking, watching this topic.  Indeed, P3D 2.5 (professional) needs realistic traffic.  I'm watching... and waiting!

#477325 Please lua help needed

Posted by sxa1376 on 08 March 2015 - 12:06 AM

Dear guys,


This request is for everyone that it can helps. I need to create a simple lua file.

My intention is because I am building a custom a320 fcu (autopilot) I need a lua file to check if autopilot is engaged and if so also the auto rudder

to be engaged as well and if the autopilot disengages the auto rudder also to be disengaged. The autopilot master consists of two switches : master one (for captain) and master two for (co-pilot).

In normal flight either one or the other are switched on. It depends of which one (captain or copilot is flying the aircraft) and then for ils landings both autopilots are on.

The thing is that when any or both autopilots are on the auto rudder must be on and when autopilots are off then the auto rudder must be off . Bellow are the three buttons from fsuipc.cfg

file that they are needed.


Auto pilot master switches :










15=PA,17,C2998,32      (Autopilot captain engager offset)
16=PA,14,C2998,33      (Autopilot copilot engager offset)







90=PG,11,C65951,0      (Auto rudder offset)







I would be very grateful guys if anyone from you do this for me because to be honest I tried to read the documents and to do it by my self but I can not understand nothing about lua files.

Many thanks in advance.

#476615 Uninstallation

Posted by colep on 13 February 2015 - 09:56 PM

Ok this is getting very frustrating now  :mad:  So, my CFG is correct (as above but with 9), the Communicator changed the CFG and disabled P3D's default traffic.  The scenery is loaded from inside P3D (I also checked to make sure the Scenery folder was inside P3D's scenery folder which it is), traffic is at 100%, the MyTraffic folder is inside the main P3D folder and still not one aircraft in the game.  Am I missing something here?  What's so frustrating is that it worked fine until I had to reinstall P3D, now it hasn't worked since but everything is the same...

#476117 Feature Request: Weather

Posted by VolkerHeine on 02 February 2015 - 11:10 AM

Hello Joachim,

ASN weather Probably not. I'm not very happy to implement multiple weather data.

For technical reasons there will be no interval-controlled weather download in the feature.





P.S. Wir können uns über das Für und Wider gerne austauschen.

Einfach per e-mail kontaktieren.
