FSUIPC 4.959n / FSX Crash on Launch

Recommended Posts

Just updated to 959n on FSX SP2, and I'm receiving a crash on launch after I've been prompted to trust the module. FSX is writing the signature to the fsx.cfg, and FSUIPC is starting. Here are the error info and FSUIPC4.LOG:

Problem signature:

That is as far as the log goes. Pete, hopefully that may give you some clues. FWIW I had the same problems with 4.959e on FSX, but it runs OK in P3D. I'm going to upgrade the P3D version and see what happens.

Cheers!

Two more data points for you - works fine on P3D 3.4.18, and when I roll back FSX to 4.959 it also starts up. I didn't clear out anything so I don't believe it's related to data / weather / logbooks files. In the FSX log, it looks like the next log entry after the CONTROLS time memory location is this:

      172 --- SIM1 Frictions access gained and basic values patched

I assume that init code is all single-threaded and executed sequentially, so perhaps there's a bug in patching the friction values?

Cheers!

What was your previous version, please? The change in n from m was extremely minor, just in a test for P3D on the Traffic Limiter.

It runs fine here on FSX-SE.

There's no change at all for FSX or FSX-SE hooking in any versions since the last FSX-SE update. I'll see where that crash offset places it.

I went from 4.959 to 4.959n. I tried 4.959e a few days ago and got a similar crash but I didn't record the crash data at the time. I suspect (but can't prove) that whatever is causing this got introduced between 4.959 and 4.959e.

Cheers!

Maybe. I've found an error in the routine which does "PatchSIM1friction" when you've added this to the INI file. There's a loop copying friction values across into SIM1 which finishes when the offset value in the source list is set at 0xFFFF.. Unfortunately the table ends with a DWORD 0xFFFFFFFF, so it doesn't match.  The loop will continue too long and if it accesses anything not accessible you get the access error.

It looks like this silly error has been there every since the built-in frictions patch was added. The difference since the 4.959e version is that some small changes in variable types were made to stop hosts of warnings appearing when we compiled with VS15 (to try to solve the Win10 problems with P3D).

You should find that if you remove the "PatchSIM1Friction=Yes" parameter from the INI it will work. Please let me know if it doesn't. Meanwhile I'll fix this error in any case.

I have some other things to sort out first, but if I post up a version 4.959p later today, or more likely tomorrow morning, could you try it for me please (with that parameter back in) and let me know?

Changed that FSUIPC4.INI option to No and things started up just fine! I'll let you know tomorrow on the new version when it's released.

Thanks!

Thanks, Daveo - I'm currently dragging an MD-11 across the pond so I won't be able to test until later tonight. I'll give it a quick whirl when I land before the sun comes up on the other side of the ocean.

Thank you Pete for your usual amazing turnaround!

Good.

I won't release 4.959p generally, as I'm close to releasing a full build 4.960, probably Monday or Tuesday. Please just replace it then.  Won't be any difference unless something else crops up over the weekend, but I hope to do the few documentation updates before then.

Pete
