  1. After a much needed break to attend to family matters (including an 800-mile move), I'm back in the tower. In time, I'll be releasing schedules for some of the airports that have come out in the past few months (I see FT and ND have been busy!). It feels good to be back. πŸ™‚

  2. Update v1.04 Changes (retro only option): Based on user feedback, increased numbers of Concorde flights to be generated for KJFK, LFPG and YMML. This ensures that not just more Concorde flights are generated to see this iconic aircraft more often, but also that the Concorde is included in schedules with lower traffic volumes for these airports. Status on EGLL implementation: The 11 PMs I requested are not nearly reached and no request has been received in the last 29 days. From this I conclude that there is

  3. Hi guys, Try this one that i crated and the problem is solved: https://mega.nz/file/kTgyUKaA#xb6ALu1Or5SVFta4N_s3UT_0YAptuwVqwmcdXBuSu7k It goes into SimObjects\Airplanes\feelThere PIC E170\sharedtexture for the 170/190 and for the 175/195 in SimObjects\Airplanes\feelThere PIC E175\sharedtexture. There is still the problem that the taxi lights illuminate the cockpit, but that is due to the fact that the model (MDL) is for prepar3d v4 and it should be fixed for v5. Regards, Ricky

  4. With turning off WiFi being the solution for some people, is FeelThere looking into the possibility that the new FeelThere website/server might be the culprit for some of these crashes?

  6. Hey controllers, I was doing some flying around with my flight sim and noticed KSFO was running unusual operations on Christmas day. The weather was rather yucky (wind/rain) and KSFO was operating under their Southeast Plan (click here for more information) which they use less than 5% of the time. As a result, I decided to dust off my schedule making software and quickly put together a custom schedule that covers the duration of the unusual operations. Unfortunately, the volumes are low due to the pandemic and also because under these conditions the airport has limited bandwidth capabilit

  7. I like doing these things. Still workin on it, hope to get all the AP done today. May even include the DCP(?) and the CCP(?), while not as complicated AP there are some slightly funky things going in the code. Roman

The AP master and VNAV are even more complicated! <!-- VS Press, Param = 5 --> (L:XP850_HW_IF, number) 5 == if{ 1 (>L:BUFFER_BTN_FMC,number) 0 (>C:carenado:AutoPilotAltitudeEnabled) (A:AUTOPILOT MASTER,BOOL) 0 != (C:carenado:AutoPilotAltitudeEnabled) 0 == and if{ 1 (>L:ASD_BTN_850XP_VS,number) (A:Autopilot Nav1 Lock,bool) (>L:NAV,bool) (A:Autopilot Heading Lock,bool) (>L:HDG,bool)

In the 850xp this L:Var has 3 values : 0 = Batt 2, 1 = Normal, 2 = Batt 1 Using 2 buttons, the left click can be : #=L:ASD_SWITCH_ISOLATE_850XP=Inc,2 then the right click can be : #=L:ASD_SWITCH_ISOLATE_850XP=Dec,0 Save a button! πŸ‘ πŸ˜ƒ Just make 1 button cyclic : #=L:ASD_SWITCH_ISOLATE_850XP=Cyc,2 Ref - Pg. 43 FSUIPC for Advanced Users.pdf Hope this helps, Roman

  12. If you read or write the whole value you are getting and setting 8 lights. To get notified of a single bit change, like the 08 (2^3) bit, use event.offsetmask(0X0D0C, 8, "UB", "function name") To SET one bit (or more) use ipc.setbitsUB. There are also functions to clear a bit (or more): ipc.clearbitsUB, and to change/toggle one or more bits: ipc.togglebitsUB. All these would be more efficient than reading/writing the complete value and using the Logic library functions for these basic things. It really is worth your while browsing the Lua Library document so you can se

  13. 0x0D0C is a 16 bit word if you want to get all the lights. 2 function examples below, "getTaxiLights1" is run by the timer, "getTaxiLights2" is run on first load & anytime there is a change at offset 0x0D0C. The last is the preferable method. function getTaxiLights1(time) tL = ipc.readUW(0x0D0C) tL = logic.And(tL, 8) -- Taxi lights are on bit 3, therefore the mask is 8 if tL == 8 then -- Taxi Lights are on else -- Taxi Lights are off end end function getTaxiLights2(offset, value) value = logic.And(value, 8) -- Taxi lights are on bit 3, therefore the mask is 8 if value ==

  19. So it took me like a whole evening of piecing together multiple forum posts, and combing through manuals to figure out how to get this working perfectly. I don't have the Bravo throttle quadrant ... yet... but I've included some instructions that should apply when I do. Here we go... 1) Go to SimMarket and BUY FSUIPC7. The free version won't help you. You need to buy it. There is a missing (by design) menu option from the free version so this is a must. Here's a link for the google challenged 😜 simMarket: JOHN DOWSON - FSUIPC7 FOR MSFS 2) You will get an email with your key and

  20. Below is a brief example of how to do what John has suggest above. Note however that this example uses the files ask_for_num() and get_asked_num() which are attached below. These are versions of the files ask_for_data() and get_asked_data() but don't work for letter characters, and as a result there is less delay in detecting an input since each time called get_asked_num() does not require establishing events for all the lowercase and uppercase letters. Using ask_for_data() and get_asked_data() would also work of course. Script get_asked_num() goes in the same folder as FSUIPC7.ini. Note

  21. That's it! Thank you very much Roman for this brilliant idea! I have flashed the Bodnar cards with two different .bin# files and did the test again. Great! Unplugging the devices is not a good idea - but due to cirstumstances I cannot avoid it in any case. Anyway, I got deeper insight in this topic now.

  22. Currently it is working...I went through every option for the microphone and enabled it. Then I turned off the WiFi and ran the program "As Administrator" as normal and it is working. Now I just checked after enabling the WiFi and it is not working. I did an update some time in Dec, I played on my flight 12/21 and it worked. After installing EGLL, it didn't work. I tried at the time of my original reply to this post and the WiFi was on. So it has something to do w/ the speech and WiFi but I have not put the two together to figure out why.

  25. Sure. It is what it is as I based the script on an existing script and I didn't modify the timer interval. You can just set it to your time-out value, not decrease the timer and cancel both timers and exit the script when the timer function is called, as indicated by Pete's comment: This is already implemented on the event.key() function for the return/enter key.

  26. No, as that will be for xbox one and 360 controllers ONLY, as they do not support DirectInput (very well...). DirectInput can support up to 128 buttons anyway, and I will also look into supporting more buttons (at least to 64, hopefully to 128) via UI assignments at some point for DirectInput devices. Unfortunately, I am spending at least 80% of my time at the moment covering support, which leaves me hardly any time for fixing bugs, let alone adding/improving current functionality. Hopefully this will change at some point..... John

  30. Until the next version of Tower is ready to go, it seems that there are a ton of international airports being created which is great news! Just keep in mind that there are some great airports just below the United States. Doesn't seem like FT has any airports in South America. It would be nice to see a change towards that region as well as to see some of those liveries too! Just a thought. Edit: If the individual could explain why my post is considered funny or laughable when it's a simple request like all others. I would like to know why.

  34. Happy New year to you to Feelthere, been enjoying your Embrear aircraft since version 1 for FS9 and FSX many years ago, currently really enjoying the emb175, the last update a couple of months ago was a great improvement. Looking forward to what Feelthere brings to 2021. All the best to you and everyone that supports you.

  35. @spokes2112 Please see the original HidDemo.lua that is included in the lua examples zip (in your documents folder). The ones you are looking at are the modified ones for which I made this mod, to exclude duplicate notifications, as you say. John

  36. Ah, sorry. You mean in the attached/modified version. I changed this in the modified version as a user didn't want both the original and virtual buttons triggering in the UI, so I changed this to disable update of the 1st 32 buttons. John

  37. Morrispe, Using the HIDDemo as is for both devices will never work. It is a demo to prove that 256 buttons can be programmed to ONE joystick. By using the same lua for both the ALPHA & the BRAVO, they will write to the same address space reserved for virtual joysticks. (0x3344 thru 0x3363. The first joystick slot 0x3340, Joy #64, was not used in this lua ) Attached are 2 luas : 1 for the ALPHA, 1 for the BRAVO. ALPHA buttons greater than 32 will be on joystick #64 with 32 additional buttons provided. (0x3340) BRAVO buttons greater than 32 will be on joystick #65 with 32 additi

  42. If you'd like to use Stream Deck buttons to trigger FSUIPC functionality, you can use FSUIPC's native "virtual joystick", without the need for vJoy (which can create issues for certain games and devices), from this plugin: https://github.com/IslandJohn/StreamDeckFSUIPC. If there's interest, I can add triggering of offsets and controls directly, but I didn't see a need to move the UI for those things from FSUIPC.

  45. It may be worth activating SimConnect logging anyway as this may show some errors when it stops responding. You can also determine the number of SimConnect connections used when this occurs, which would confirm or otherwise if this was the issue. It may be that with P3Dv4 there are less re-connects done by any SimConnect clients. ...and have a Happy Christmas! John

  47. @QantasFan-QF476 Although the 74Y is a valid plane model now, it didn't exist in RT when YMML was released and is not included in ymml_airplanes.txt. Theoretically, since KIAD was the last airport released it should have the most up to date airplanes file (and contain the 74Y). As a result, the easiest thing to do is copy kiad_airlines.txt over to your YMML folder. Rename your ymml_airplanes.txt to something like ymml_airplanes_original.txt and then rename kiad_airplanes.txt to ymml_airplanes.txt.
