  1. Looks like the documentation needs a minor update as it does refer to 'page 2 of 6', etc, where it should be 'screen 2 of 11' (or maybe just 'screen 2'). The documentation for FSUIPC4 will not be updated, but I'll check and update this for FSUIPC5. Thanks for pointing this out. John
  2. I have added a new control to toggle the auto-save facility on/off. Using this, you should be able to write a lua script to turn auto-save off/on when required, for example on gear down/up, or on altitude. The new dll for this has been posted in this topic: John

  4. You do not provide much information - how are you activating your flaps? Which aircraft? Can you try activating logging for Events (non axis controls) and Button and key operations and post the log file generated when you have your problem, together with your .ini file. If you are not using a default aircraft, you my also want to try with one as well. Thanks, John
  5. Hi Bob, please try the following: FSUIPC5.zip Unzip this and you'll find an FSUIPC5.dll that you should use to replace your current one (in your Modules folder). You will see an additional control has been added called 'Auto-save' toggle. This only has an effect when the auto-save feature is activated, and will allow you to toggle this facility on and off. It is initially on (i.e. auto-save functioning). Let me know if you have any issues. Cheers, John
  6. You install WideClient on the client PC, which can have no affect whatsoever on your main PC where FSUIPC is installed. You should then re-run the FSUIPC installer on your main PC to register your WideFS license. This should update your licence file (.key) and may install a new dll, but should not affect your settings (in the .ini file) in any way. And as Pete says, you should post your FSUIPC5.log and .ini files (and maybe your .Joyscan.csv file) if/when you are having problems. Cheers, John
  7. Btw, you didn't mention which sim or FSUIPC version you are using. I'll add a new control to toggle auto-save on/off but this will be for FSUIPC5 only - FSUIPC4 is closed for future development. I'll post a new dll in this thread when ready, within a few days hopefully. Cheers, John
  8. You cannot create an lvar - they are provided by the aircraft guages. You can use the provided control (or lua script) to list available lvars for the loaded aircraft (see the user guide). Why do you want to use an lvar anyway? If using in a lua script, use a global variable. You can also pass variables between scripts (see ). John
  9. SPAD.next works well with FSUIPC. I haven't used SPAD, but that should also be ok. e.g. see here: https://www.spadnext.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=209 Cheers, John
  10. To add to what Pete has said, for the above please see the section in the User Guide User profiles for all control settings. John
  11. It accepts a memory address, with the size as the second parameter (also offset size). You should define it to be the type you are actually reading. You should also maybe check-out Paul Henty's client dll for .net / c#, as this provides a higher level abstraction that many folks find easier to use (although its for c#). See https://forum.simflight.com/forum/167-fsuipc-client-dll-for-net/ Regards, John
  12. Hi Dani, as the value is a 4 byte integer, try defining int flaps; and if (!FSUIPC_Read(0x0BDC, 4, &flaps, &dwResult)... ... printf("Flaps = %d\n", flaps); John P.S. For flaps position, you probably want offsets 0BE0 and 0BE4.
  13. Hi Bob, currently its not possible to activate/deactivate auto-save on a control/event. This has also been requested before, either as a straightforward control (on/off) or to allow automatic enable/disable depending on the aircraft altitude, to basically allow automatic disable on take-off/landing and enable thereafter. I will look into this for a future release. Regards, John
  14. If you are going to try unplugging and uninstalling both your Razer and HOTAS Warthog devices, apply the following .reg file after you have uninstalled to make sure all registry entries are removed: Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 [-HKCU\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\MediaProperties\PrivateProperties\DirectInput\VID_044F&PID_0404] [-HKCU\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\MediaProperties\PrivateProperties\Joystick\OEM\VID_044F&PID_0404] [-HKCU\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\MediaProperties\PrivateProperties\DirectInput\VID_044F&PID_0402] [-HKCU\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\MediaProperties\PrivateProperties\Joystick\OEM\VID_044F&PID_0402] [-HKCU\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\MediaProperties\PrivateProperties\DirectInput\VID_1532&PID_022B] [-HKCU\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\MediaProperties\PrivateProperties\Joystick\OEM\VID_1532&PID_022B] (as before, save into a file with .reg extension and run as administrator.). When you connect your drivers and reboot, let windows install default drivers but do not install any specific drivers or software for these devices for the time being. Remove your FSUIPC5.ini file (no need for JoyLetters and the moment, we can activate that once your problem is resolved), fire up P3D and then send us the .ini, .log and .Joyscan.csv files again please. Thanks, John
