  1. Past hour
  2. Roman, Thank you for your reply, and for fixing my issue. It is clear to me now, of course. I am using the Milviz C310; your advice on testing with stock aircraft FIRST is noted.
  3. For the first part - It looks like you may have a syntax error that FSUIPC doesn't catch, you are using a "repeat" modifier in the second half of the compound code. None of my compounds have this. Perhaps having this negates the original "CR" in the first part of the compound code. 45=CR(-3,29)R3,2,C65879,0 -{HEADING_BUG_INC}- 46=CR(-3,29)R3,8,C65880,0 -{HEADING_BUG_DEC}- 47=CR(+3,29)R3,2,C65663,0 -{VOR1_OBI_INC}- 48=CR(+3,29)R3,8,C65662,0 -{VOR1_OBI_DEC}- Maybe (?) this will work - 45=CR(-3,29)3,2,C65879,0 -{HEADING_BUG_INC}- 46=CR(-3,29)3,8,C65880,0 -{HEADING_BUG_DEC}- 47=CR(+3,29)3,2,C65663,0 -{VOR1_OBI_INC}- 48=CR(+3,29)3,8,C65662,0 -{VOR1_OBI_DEC}- For the second part - I see that you are using profiles and that particular profile is for the 310, perhaps the Milviz C310? I do not have that model from them so cannot test. I can bet apples to oranges that they are not using standard FS type coding, rather using L:Vars instead. (many designers do use L:Vars, specially for heading) My advice? Try your compound code with something stock and non-complex such as the 172 or Baron. If it works for the 172 / Baron then further investigation will need to be done, possibly using a lua file will need to be done to interface with it. Roman
  4. Today
  5. I've been using FSUIPC for some time, but have not delved into the advanced functions beyond separate profiles for aircraft, etc. I'd like to have two sets of functions for certain joystick buttons. I've read the 'COMPOUND BUTTON CONDITIONS' text in the advanced manual, and also perused some threads here on the topic but I"m doing something wrong! I am using a Gladiator MKII stick, and to start I would like to same buttons to move the heading bug left, right and the OBS needle left, right depending on whether or not another button is pressed. The modifier button is #29 on my joystick, identified by FSUIPC with the number '3' (see first screenshot). I want to use buttons 2 and 8 for my actions. Only the VOR OBS INCR and DEC is defined in the 'Options and Settings' dialog box (see screenshots 2, 3). Everything else is in the .INI file; here are the relevant lines: 45=CR(-3,29)R3,2,C65879,0 -{HEADING_BUG_INC}- 46=CR(-3,29)R3,8,C65880,0 -{HEADING_BUG_DEC}- 47=CR(+3,29)R3,2,C65663,0 -{VOR1_OBI_INC}- 48=CR(+3,29)R3,8,C65662,0 -{VOR1_OBI_DEC}- The OBS needle moves left and right, regardless of the position of the modifier button. The Heading bug does not move, at all. Could anyone please help me clean this up and close my knowledge gap? Thanks in advance...
  6. Mornin' John. I've tried two test flights out of EGLL with both a default aircraft and the PMDG737. Using FSUIPC5 v5.1.5.0 both were successful with no crashes and RC4 running. Hope that helps you narrow the problem. Total Ai were in excess of 260.
  7. Have you tried departing IAH at the same time? I can reproduce the crash when either lining up on 27L at EGLL or just as the wheels leave the ground. I will try my test with 5.15.

  10. Guys I keep trying but some aircrafts will do it some wont and they are similar, for example I been able to set it up on the 737PMDG however on the 777 wont stay, the stick goes up then down again, what can I do, any videos about this?
  11. There seemed to be an issue with the airplanes.txt file, so i have reuploaded it and seems to be ok now. Please redownload again from dropbox Also to avoid any confusion, i have added a note to the original post to indicate on which date the latest version has been updated
  12. Yesterday
  13. 5.15 works! I had 318 ai (AIGAIM, UTL and MAIW) in the bubble on final to IAH and it didn't CTD. Boom!
  14. Can the - TripleUse.lua - script written by Pete Dowson be adapted to count (e.g.) 10 button presses within a given interval to give an option . In the script you can set interval time ... and the script 'counts ?' the button presses , can this be used with a rotary to count the clicks(presses), when if 10 clicks within the given interval time it can then call a different function ? This is another idea I've got to enable Rotary auto speed step that I posted about previously. Thanks for your thoughts and advice on this...
  15. Thank You for your help sir It worked as soon as I used SINT instead of UNIT. I am now trying to read altitude from the simulator. It says the offset has two parts, 0574 and 0570. now if I want to read the height do I make two independent events and read them?
  16. Use the wheel-up and wheel-down values. In a lua script like so: ipc.control(EVT_OH_PRESS_FLT_ALT_KNOB, MOUSE_FLAG_WHEEL_UP) Emile van Gerwen.

    Callsign Information Tool for Tower!3D Pro

    very nicely done!
  18. Especially with custom schedules it can happen that unknown or changed callsigns are used. If you want to look up a callsign while playing, you will often not find it in official databases. With the Callsign Information Tool you can upload the provided airlines file and search for callsigns quickly and easily while playing. Callsign Information Tool (Website) (Please note that this website is not optimized for mobile devices.)
  19. Reporting back... Completed two evening flights DEN-SLC-DEN and no CTD. Not sure I'm completely out of the woods yet, but tomorrow I'll try DEN-IAH, two big AI hubs.
  20. Last week
  21. ok thanks both, let me try it thanks.

    Loading stops at 9% on MP

    Hello, I've never seemed to have this problem until yesterday. However, My brother and I were loading up just another MP session (I was hosting) but this time I got stuck at 9% and he loaded in just fine. I didn't think much of it so I kept trying but had no luck. Some troubleshooting things I've done so far. Restarted both machines Reinstalled the whole game Ensured we had the same schedules and files installed (I installed everything for both of us anyway) After doing these with no luck I decided to bring it here to the forums. Thanks for any help you can give. *PS: it said the game.log file was too big so I put it in a dropbox* https://www.dropbox.com/s/zbyvs0u3sm4av8y/game.log?dl=0
  25. Could someone help me understand how it is possible to assign my left mouse button to a joystick trigger. Being able to do this will be very helpful when flying VR mode. Thank you, Raj
  26. I will give it a go this evening and report back. I also have an old version of 5.1.0 and will fire it up if 5.15 fails with traffic at 100%.
