  1. Hey Paul thanks for your prompt replies. It helped to understand what's going on. The MobiFlight users were definitely affected by some of these little glitches. First tests with the updated version look really promising and I hope to be able to release a new more stable version soon. Thanks again!
  2. Thanks for you answer! i used to actually send the EventIDs as write only (because there is no need to read these Offsets ever) but I removed it when I noticed the behavior in the new version as described earlier and I tried it without it. I must have not rebuilt properly because I was under the impression that the behavior was still the same without write-only. Today i tested again and now the Event is triggered once but I have to write 0s to the offset before trying to send the EventID again. Otherwise the lib would not notice that I am trying to set the Offset again with the same values (e.g. multiple increments of the COM1 freq). There must be some kind of check in the lib now that checks if the offset has really changed since the last time or maybe FSUIPC used to reset the FSControl Offset after writing to it and that got synced back to your Offset value in the past - because it was definitely working with v2 of the library. Anyways, It looks like that for my purpose the SendControlToFS() is the better way to go for now so I will use it instead. Is there a way to have a look at the source for your library? Being able to look at the code would help to understand how and why things work the way they work. Have a great day! Sebastian
  3. Hi, I am the developer of MobiFlight and I was using the 2.0 version of your library so far. We actually had some issues with missing writes and reads and I believe that is something that you also addressed in your 3.x version (at least the change log mentions something that pretty much sounds like the problem I was having...) I am migrating to the 3.x version now and I observed a strange behavior when using EventIDs/FSControls. With 2.0 Version I was using the following code and the logic that was explained in the FSUIPC documentation (cache is pretty much just a wrapper for your library that manages creating the required offsets and the respective reading and writing udpates): cache.setOffset(ParamOffset, Param); cache.setOffset(BaseOffset, EventId); cache.Write(); So I am setting the offset for param, I am setting EventID at the offset for the EventID/FSControls. Write then simply triggers FSUIPCConnection.process(). In version 2, I was able to do this and the effect was as expected. Every time I set the offset the Event will be triggered in the flight sim. Example: Increase COM1 freq, you call the method once with the right EventID and Param and the COM1 freq will be increased once accordingly. Call the method various times, the COM1 freq will be increased multiple times. In version 3 however, If i set these offsets once, it seems that they are continuously executed on every FSUIPCConnection.process(). It looks like if the offsets are written every time. When I write to other FSUIPC Offsets that don't deal with the EventIDs/FSControls, I don't I changed my code to call the newly added method FSUIPCConnection.SendControlToFS and it seems to be working just fine now again, but I would still like to understand what has changed in regard to writing offsets to make sure I don't miss to change other parts of my logic too. Thanks Sebastian
