    P3D 4.5 FSUIPC 5.152 and WideFS 6.999z1

    Hi Pete, many thanks for your reply. I'm currently using non registered FSUIPC 5 with P3D 4.5 but I'm having trouble configuring the MCJ Q400's AFCS panel on Saitek Multi Panel (MP) and SPAD.neXt. So I want to give a try to Mouse Macro feature of FSUIPC that are available only in registered version. The target is to map the macro to keyboard key and then add a keyboard event to the MP button using SPAD.neXt. I hope this will work. Thanks again, Alessandro

    Good points Sounds like initial contact is the main requirement on when it should happen. I guess the main part of your scenario I am struggling with is why the ATC would even move them. It would seem that this could get messy if other pilots called in similarly. I've most often heard something like ATC say "Lima is current, advise when you get Lima" and the pilot indicates they'll "get Lima" and responds back when they do. But the ATC has either not moved them or gone ahead and given taxi instructions. Unless the change in the ATIS is significant (i.e., runway change), is it really even necessary to hold things up? To be honest, I've heard the mismatched ATIS scenario more on arrival/approach. In this case, the pilot continues to proceed inbound and gets the specified ATIS. I'll listen to some more clearance/ground to make sure I'm not talking out of my you know what.

    Often enough it is not done. But I have also heard otherwise. Especially after ATIS changed recently. Here, for example, a Delta Connection pilot announces with his taxi request that he has X-Ray, and it's a pretty new (post-KS) audio. And I found this in section 2-9-2, letter c, in FAA Order JO 7110.65: And directed at pilots the FAA's Aeronautical Information Manual states in chapter 4, section 4-2-3, number 3:

    Actually, I believe the ATIS is provided as part of the startup process with clearance/delivery and prior to any actually plane movement. This could potentially cause a delay if the pilot doesn't have the current ATIS but, again, it would be before pushback or taxi has taken place.

    I like both of those!
  11. Thanks Pete, will do. I definitely saw those entries in the Events drop-down for exits. Hopefully we’ll get a solution.

    Please LOCK this topic, no more replies required
  13. Then best to just pass on the information i specifically supplied above back to him! The name of the SimConnet variable to register in Simconnect is the string "..." at the end of each of the 8 lines. I read it as a % Pete

    Tower 2011 - Erratic loading

    This issue has been resolved today Main-PC confirmed as Hard Drive failure (£105 to replace) Profiles swapped and cloned So both laptops are identical again Contract sent to third party, to permit laptops to be swapped, which was confirmed very quickly The software was running without any issues on Laptop-Two This laptop has now been renamed as Main-PC

    Reasons are not necessary to be given. The biggest factor, though, is still the weather. So, the easiest thing to produce delays is closing virtual routes or stopping releases to a certain region (like the American east coast from North Carolina to Florida due to a severe hurricane or something). Which leads me to another two possible features: METARs In short: weather reports that the Tower (or virtual tower supervisor) has to react to, like performing a runway change etc., and influences the spacing of inbound and outbound flights from a certain point. INFORMATIONs When virtual pilots call Ground, they should provide which ATIS they have ("Ground, Jetblue 1415 ready for taxi at DA with information K"). If ATIS has moved on or the pilot didn't include ATIS information into his call, Ground has to tell them ("Jetblue 1415, information is L, taxi right onto A, hold short of J"). This might be something to produce a delay, so that the pilots can listen to ATIS again and punch it into the computer ("Ground, Jetblue 1415 is not ready", followed by "Ground, Jetblue 1415 ready for departure") - and only then they can be handed over to the Tower.
  16. Hello fellow simmers, I encountered the following problem today. Everything was working fine in my system two days ago. I have written a Lua script that was working fine. Now all of a sudden today after starting P3D, when I select FSUIPC Add-on from the menu the P3D window just shows black until I press the ESC key. I have no idea why that happens. I am not aware of any change in my system. The only thing I noted today when starting the PC, somehow P3D was already running and told me that the display resolution is wrong and whether I want to change. I said no. Maybe that was an error. But with the screen resolutions settings in Windows 10 and in P3D everything seems fine. I have: P3D 4.5.12.30293 Sim connect 4.5.0.0 FSUIPC5, Version 5.151 Windows 10 Any advice would be appreciated. Thank you Detlef
  17. Pete, It's probably best if you read the dialogue between me and Steve regarding this problem. I'm just passing on what he said. https://www.pollypotsoftware.org.uk/vanillaforums/discussion/1230/exit-lights-wont-illuminate#latest
  18. That can't be correct, as FSUIPC uses only SimConnect for those, as for almost everything else! { 0x3367, 1, 0, F32V, DOORS, WR | WROK | BITS, szPc, "EXIT OPEN:0" }, { 0x3367, 0, 1, F32V, DOORS, WR | WROK | BITS, szPc, "EXIT OPEN:1" }, { 0x3367, 0, 2, F32V, DOORS, WR | WROK | BITS, szPc, "EXIT OPEN:2" }, { 0x3367, 0, 3, F32V, DOORS, WR | WROK | BITS, szPc, "EXIT OPEN:3" }, { 0x3367, 0, 4, F32V, DOORS, WR | WROK | BITS, szPc, "EXIT OPEN:4" }, { 0x3367, 0, 5, F32V, DOORS, WR | WROK | BITS, szPc, "EXIT OPEN:5" }, { 0x3367, 0, 6, F32V, DOORS, WR | WROK | BITS, szPc, "EXIT OPEN:6" }, { 0x3367, 0, 7, F32V, DOORS, WR | WROK | BITS, szPc, "EXIT OPEN:7" }, Note that FSUIPC reads the door states as 32-bit floats. those give the % of opening. It changes the bits in 3367 based on this value. It sounds to me more like an error in their Simconnect access code. And why does he use IP sockets to interface, which needs a Lua plug-in? Wouldn't it have been a lot simpler for them to use the published FSUIPC interface? Pete
  19. Thanks John and Pete. The reason for the access into FSUIPC is to read 3367 for the status of exits. Apparently SimConnect reads them once and not again so they’re not available via the usual means in GIT. Hence the access to FSUIPC5. I’ll install the pack tomorrow and hopefully it will fix the problem. Thanks!
  20. FSUIPC only uses sockets for WideServer links to WideClient. I see John has pointed you to a Lua sockets solution, originally posted by another user, to solve the absence of a 64 bit sockets module. The socket number to be used will be set in the Lua plug-in you will presumably need to use. Seems very strange to me that a GoFlight module needs IP sockets to get information. Pete
  21. You need to download an install the lua socket module. There is a FAQ entry on this.
  22. Hi John, GIT is to allow communication between GoFlight hardware and P3D but also accessing FSUIPC. I have narrowed the problem down to a port number that is trying to be accessed but being denied. I am talking to the GIT author but wondered if you had any ideas about this error in the fsuipc log:- 50703 LUA.1: beginning "D:\P3Dv4\Modules\gitlua.lua" 50703 *** LUA Error: D:\P3Dv4\Modules\gitlua.lua:5: module 'socket' not found: no field package.preload['socket']socket no file 'D:\P3Dv4\modules\socket.lua' no file 'D:\P3Dv4\modules\socket\init.lua' no file 'D:\P3Dv4\modules\lua\socket.lua' no file 'D:\P3Dv4\modules\lua\socket\init.lua' no file 'C:\Program Files (x86)\Lua\5.1\lua\socket.luac' no file 'D:\P3Dv4\modules\lua\socket.dll' no file 'D:\P3Dv4\modules\lua\loadall.dll' It can't find the socket. Any suggestions?
  23. Hi Ray. It won't be the firewall - this doesn't come into play when you are running programs on the same machine (with a local ip address). I don't know GIT - what is it using to talk to FSUIPC? Pete may know more, but you should probably try GIT forums or support.
  24. An update. That IP address relates to 'local host'. I've now changed it to the IP address of the PC. But access still fails because of a port number in FSUIPC5 not being accessible. Is 8385 the correct one?
  25. Hi chaps. Frustrating problem trying to get GoFlight Interface Tool (GIT) to read an offset in FSUIPC5 for the status of the exits so when I flick a switch to open an exit the LED for the T8 comes on. It’s the only way of getting the led to work apparently. The GIT log records all actions but it’s this one that has me beat... 14:20:49 FSUIPC: Connection Failed: No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it. 127.0.0.1:8385 I’ve disabled the firewall but still no joy. All this is one the same PC. There was no entry for GIT in the list of approved programs in the firewall so I added it with private access. Still no joy. One program is trying to read another all on the same machine but the firewall is blocking access. Any ideas how to fix it?

    😂😂 That's a thing???
  27. thank you so much in fact I have the list of XLM variables, but I don't know how to use them with fsuipc, in particular the output variables that are currently the most important, could you please explain in detail how can I use them with FSUIPC? which cards i can use for the outputs, (I have output cards of the ULTIMARC PLACLED64) can I use those? if you can help me step by step I would be really grateful

    No, not at all. Use FSUIPC as it stands or registered. WideFS is a separate add-on to spread the FSUIPC interface for applications to other PC's in your home network. if you want to do that then you need to register WideFS -- but even that doesn't actually need a registered FSUIPC, only an installed FSUIPC. You register FSUIPC only to use it's user facilities, not its interface for application programs. Pete
