Updated Modules

Recommended Posts

Pete Dowson    155

Note that mostly this Announcement will contain only the changed modules. You will almost always need the main release installed first. For those please also check 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 3.999z9b Install FSUIPC 3.999z9b for FS9 and before
-- For changes see the History document in the full install update.

FSUIPC version 3.999z9b only, for those with 3.999z1 or later already installed FSUIPC 3.999z9b
-- Fixes an ancient and obscure bug which nevertheless can crash FS on loading with certain INI file arrangements.
-- The z9b update merely enables Registrations purchased after the end of 2015 to work. The new registration period now applies till the end of 2025.


PFC driver version 2.41 for FS9 and earlier PFC 2.41
(ZIP includes documentation)


FOR FSX, FSX-SE and Prepar3D

Install complete FSUIPC version 4.971 Install FSUIPC4.971 for FSX, FSX-SE and Prepar3D versions 2.5, 3.0 - 3.4 (32-bit only: all versions to date of release)
Changes since 4.96 are now included in the History document in the FSUIPC Documents folder.  For 4.971 additional data from Active Sky is now available in offsets, are are details about the nearest ground and sirborne AI aircraft.


FOR Prepar3D 4 (64-bit)

Install complete FSUIPC version 5.121a Install FSUIPC5.121a
This is the 64-bit equivalent to 4.971 above, but it remains an ongoing development. Please see the History document installed for you in the FSUIPC Documents folder for details of the changes since the very first release, 5.10, two months ago plus, for the changes since 5.11 document within the ZIP itself.
IMPORTANT: The 5.121 update fixed cursor and Window size bugs introduced in 5.2. 5.121a is identical except it is built with a previous version of the SimConnect LIB as the latest appears to have a compatibility problem (reported to L-M).
