  1. Except now it is running over and over again. I'm know this is probably a dumb question and I'm sorry for asking, but how do I get that function to stop running. I've got it looking at a global variable, but it runs over and over anyways. function vlc() checkiftrue=1 math.randomseed(os.time()) math.random(); math.random(); math.random() randomNumber = math.random(1,3) print(randomNumber) if randomNumber==1 then os.execute [[""C:\\Program Files\\VideoLan\\VLC\\vlc.exe" "https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_g2qU2pSzTY" "https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OAUUrM87jg8" "--fullscreen" "--no-qt-fs-controller" "--qt-start-minimized" "--qt-fullscreen-screennumber=2" "--no-video-title-show" "vlc://quit""]] elseif randomNumber==2 then os.execute [[""C:\\Program Files\\VideoLan\\VLC\\vlc.exe" "https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_g2qU2pSzTY" "https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xFnTXoKeWIE" "--fullscreen" "--no-qt-fs-controller" "--qt-start-minimized" "--qt-fullscreen-screennumber=2" "--no-video-title-show" "vlc://quit""]] elseif randomNumber==3 then os.execute [[""C:\\Program Files\\VideoLan\\VLC\\vlc.exe" "https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_g2qU2pSzTY" "https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sTm1I5lBDrA" "--fullscreen" "--no-qt-fs-controller" "--qt-start-minimized" "--qt-fullscreen-screennumber=2" "--no-video-title-show" "vlc://quit""]] end return end function checkPushback() if checkiftrue==0 then event.control(66483,"vlc") return end end checkiftrue=0 checkPushback()
  2. Success! Thank you for your help! function vlc() checkiftrue=1 os.execute [[""C:\\Program Files\\VideoLan\\VLC\\vlc.exe" "https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_g2qU2pSzTY" "--fullscreen" "--no-qt-fs-controller" "--qt-start-minimized" "--qt-fullscreen-screennumber=2" "vlc://quit""]] end function checkPushback() if checkiftrue==0 then event.control(66483,"vlc") end end checkiftrue=0 checkPushback()
  3. I use Self-Loading Cargo and I am trying to figure out if I can get FSUIPC to open a video (Aer Lingus Safety Announcement) using VLC media player when I start to push back from the gate. Any help would be appreciated. I have seen how to run a program when FSUIPC starts up, but not how to start a program when a condition is true. Also, I'm not sure what Self Loading Cargo uses to determine the beginning of the taxi phase.
