  1. Past hour
  2. Hey Daniel, Good stuff on modding out the files. What's the chances you can get us some line information to make the tower callouts more realistic? Main 2 things i would LOVE to see........ 1. Wind on arrivals -- Current -- Delta 123, runway 25L cleared to land Desired -- Delta 123, wind is 6 at 5 knots, rwy 25L , cleared to land --Calm wind -- Game doesn't have wind calm for wind (velocity < 3 knots) -- Delta 123, wind is calm, rwy 25L, cleared to land 2. Tower ID -- it's one of the most important things the developers left out for authenticity -- Planes should know what airport is calling them and what position they are being called from Current -- Delta 123, rwy 25L, cleared to land Desired -- Delta 123, Los Angeles Tower, wind is calm, rwy 25L, cleared to land. Much appreciated for taking a look and giving some feedback on these. Joe ATControl --YoutTube
  3. Today
  4. Great, thanks. Get well soon :-) Peter
  5. Thanks. I don't yet have a registered version of FSUIPC for FS9, but I have tested this in FSX and it works well. :)
  6. Hello. I was forced to change my old email address (fsnet.co.uk) and use another. I have changed my registered email address for this forum and Simmarket. However my FSUIPC key file and hence log files and the FSUIPC display still show the old email address. I am thinking that I should be getting a new key file with the new email address from somewhere, but I am unable to find any information about this. How do I update my registered email address?

  7. Save and load plans

    Hi Frans, please read here first: http://forum.simflight.com/topic/60271-important-everyone-please-read/ btw. What's FSPC? Volker
  8. vb.net detect value changes

    Yes sir, it seems so.
  9. vb.net detect value changes

    The only way is to monitor all the possible offsets and see which one changes. There's no way I know of to get the addresses of offsets that change during a period of time. Paul
  10. I sniped the modules folder and attached it. There is nothing in documents folder. I'll clear my cache and install without registering.
  11. vb.net detect value changes

    I will ask another question. Lets say we want to check pilots' actions during their flights and seatbelt sign is one of the check items. But the problem with the seatbelt offsets is many different aircraft have different offsets for seatbelt usage. For example, standart seatbelt offset is 341D, pmdg ngx 738 offset is 649F, pmdg 777 ofset is 647B, pmdg 747 offset is 6C2B. And probably other addons are using different offset values also. Is there any way to detect which offset is activated when some switch is turned on or off?
  12. Okay, thanks. now I can see the problem I should be able to fix it quickly, but I am no able to work properly at present having come down with some sort of really bad cold or 'flu'. Nevertheless, hopefully I'll be able to sort it out some time over the weekend. Pete
  13. Can we combine the schedules all at once or no ?
  14. Reflections

    Since I mentioned a graphic-related question, I'll add another one and include my system specs as well...all aircraft have a momentary rapid deceleration when landing or taking off on KLGA runway 4 passing taxiway E almost coming to a stop. It's like they hit an invisible wall for a second. In addition to Vic's response, I'd like to hear from anyone else seeing this. Intel Core (TM) i5-7600K CPU @ 3.8 GHz RAM - 32 GB Nvidia GeForce 1080Ti card with 11 G Asus ROG PG278QR 27" monitor @ 2560 x 1440 - 144Hz Mike
  15. Thanks for your reply. Before I used version 4.679 with FSX-SE. Peter
  16. Reflections

    Vic, the graphic option Reflections implies that with that option turned off, you're not going to see reflections but they are still visible in the water from a lot of the buildings surrounding LGA. Also, the next version of T3DPro would do well to include brief explanations of ALL options. It would simplify the process and be quicker that hunting down explanations from various other sources when you're configuring the game. Mike
  17. Save and load plans

    L.S. I spent hours and hours on many days working on flight plans and storing but the structure to save or retrieve files I do not succeed. I have read the instructions carefully but do not get out. If I was succesfulle on a day, later I't das not work. On 23-11-2017 made a plan from Amsterdam to Paris that I wanted to continue a day later. The file stored in a location where P3D can also find it. on 24-11-2017 the file could not be found by FSPC while the explorer indicated that it existed and also P3D wanted to load it. And FSPC referred to that path (it was not a readable plan) The entire menu structure of SAVE / LOAD and LOAD is unclear. Although I bought this program, I consider returning to Plan-Gv3 Unless someone can explain to me how it should be done. Many thanks in advance Windows 10 Prepar3D v4 Frans Jeijsman
  18. Frustrated by in game advertising

    Hartleecub: Note in the other thread on SP3 that people are seeing that their latest updated install is SP2 after SP3 is completed, Vic is saying to ignore until they can ferret out the little bug(ger).
  19. Gameplay Reference Cards

    I see that this post doesn't look to be updated since August. Is there a new version of the Call Signs chart floating around out there anywhere? It looks like the link is dead. Also, is there a good site with info on some of the details of the best way to play the game? I bought it on Steam but there don't appear to be many Guides posted. Thanks to the author of these cards! That looks like a fair amount of work! Much appreciated!
  20. Weird throttle calibration problem

    excellent, thanks for info. Glad it could be sorted out ! A plane needing that full range and a Sync user, probably a rare combination :-). I'll post some instructions in the FSLabs forum after the new versions are out. Thanks and keep up the great work ! Mike
  21. The above is very strange. It says the folder was created okay, but then none of the files can be installed! That makes no sense. Access cannot be denied to a folder the same program just created! I've never seen anything quite so strange. Can you tell me exactly what files are there, in the P3D Modules folder? And in the subfolder FSUIPC Documents? (The Modules folder is E:\P3Dv4\Modules) BTW, when did you download 5.122. The package was replaced once because of a corrupted upload. Just in case you could try downloading it again. Please be sure to clear your cache first (F5 I think). And try installing first without registering, so we can see if all the files are correctly installed. Pete
  22. Thanks for the report Bullrot. Fixed and uploaded new version, then saw you'd already worked it out :-) After getting sidetracked and playing the game for a few hours, thought I'd better make a new reply here because most people will never notice that the original post has been updated :-) Daniel
  23. Hi Pete. I have been reading the forums and haven't found a problem like this. I have paid for FSUIPC5. I have P3Dv4.1 installed and have been playing it. I install the downloaded exe file as administrator. I enter my registration info and Key exactly as show on my order confirmation. A box pops up that says registration accepted then offers a flickable box to confirm. I do that and both boxes immediately disappear. When I go to P3D and select the FUSIPC add on its says I'm not registered. It says I need to do the registration at install. I have gone to my modules folder and there is lots in there. I will copy and paste every thing below. I have repeated this process about a dozen times. I use to be a P3Dv3 user with FSUIPC4. Could that be causing some kind of conflict?

  24. FS2004 Freeze Altitude

    Try saving this in the FS Modules folder as a file called "freezeAlt.lua" althi = ipc.readSD(0x574) altlo = ipc.readUD(0x570) while 1 do ipc.sleep(10) -- 10 mSecs = 100 times per sec ipc.writeUD(0x570,altlo) ipc.writeSD(0x574,althi) end Then, run FS. Go to FSUIPC options and assign a button or keypress to "Lua freezealt", and another to "Luakill freezealt". Use the first keypress or button to freeze the altitude, and the other to release it. Testing here I get an altitude variation of only 1-2 feet. That's with P3Dv4, so your results may differ. (I don't even have FS2004 any more). You can try reducing the number 10 in the sleep line to make it set the altitude more often -- see what suits you and your setup. Please note that I normally do NOT write plug-ins for users. I'd prefer they did their own research, so that they learn more and can do more things subsequently. I supply many examples and documentation in the FSUIPC Dcouments folder, and Lua has an excellentreference and tutorials on their website. Pete
