  1. Hello Pete, if I use the Traffic Zapper in P3D v2, it crashes (CTD) P3D, faulting module FSUIPC4.dll. This is 100% reproduceable and occurs only if I "zapp" onto an airplane. If I do not aim at an airplane (hearing just the zap sound, but no plane is zapped away), the sim does not crash. Any idea to solve this? Many thanks, Guenter p.s. FSUIPC version 4.931 on P3D v2.2 with Hotfix
  2. The Cessna (as mostly all other advanced addons) do not work with (all) standard FSX functions. With the freeware LINDA you have access to all A2A 172 functons (same for all other A2A planes and many, many addons)
  3. That would be a good idea ... will try something and look how it works in "daily" use. Andys point is also valid of course...
  4. Hello Pete, Majestic Dash 8 has implemented a fix assignment that steering tiller is at the same axis as ailerons. However I find this really practical and tried it with NGX etc (meaning bigger planes with separate tillers) and I'm happy with it, because in that way, I could "simulate" the use of a separate tiller in a way instead of using rudder pedals. Now, as I have ailerons and steering tiller via FSUIPC at one axis, is there any possibility to disable ailerons as long as the aircraft is on ground? many thanks, Guenter
  5. oh, yes... copy and paste error from myself! sorry!!!!! :oops:
  6. Hello, here is a LUA script: -- Assignments valid for P40 and Spitfire -- rounds the integer function round(num) num = tonumber(num) if num == nil then return 0 end if num >= 0 then return math.floor(num+.5) else return math.ceil(num-.5) end end function round2 (num, idp) num = tonumber(num) if num == nil then return 0 end local mult = 10^(idp or 0) return math.floor(num * mult + 0.5) / mult end acftname = ipc.readSTR("3D00", 35) ------------------------------------------------------------- Spitfire elseif string.find(acftname,"Spitfire",0,true) then var = round(((ipcPARAM+16384)/32768*10)/2) --ipc.display(var) --ipc.sleep(50) ipc.writeLvar("L:Eng1_RadiatorLeverPos", var) ------------------------------------------------------------- P40 elseif string.find(acftname,"P-40",0,true) then var = (ipcPARAM+16384)/32768*100 --ipc.display(var) --ipc.sleep(50) ipc.writeLvar("L:Eng1_RadiatorLeverPos", var) end Copy that code, insert it into Notepad (Editor) - NOT Word etc.! Save it into your Modules folder, name it as you like, e.g. Radiator.LUA Simply open FSUIPC and choose "send to FSX axis" and select "lua Radiator" that's it! EDIT: as you can see, that code is valid for P40 and Spitfire
  7. Hello Pete, I have Flight1's Soundstream (a tool to keep FSX sound active, even FSX window lost focus) My problem is, that I have some addons, where soundstream does definitely crash FSX. Best example is A2A's B17G Of course I asked Flight1 support and the addon dev's, but each says the other one have to fix it. Now, what I want to do is - when one of these addon planes is loaded - to disable (kill) soundstream. Problem is, I do not find it as task in task manager or anywhere else. My question is now: If soundstream.dll is started with dll.xml is there any way to kill that from inside FSX? many thanks, Guenter
  8. Yes, of course, but please ask questions in the LINDA forum as I just answer things there to keep things less complicated ;)
  9. Could I point you to LINDA the LINDA module for the NGX contains every VC switch of the NGX overhead, ready to be assigned via a menu to your hardware ...
  10. hmmm .. too bad. seems I have to live with it. yes, that would be my next thought, I will try that then. Many thanks as always! greetings, Günter
  11. Hello Pete, I have this issue a long time now, but never cared about. Now, that I want to run some more programs, I bring this up, hopefully we find a solution. I'm on 4.90 of course and have Win8 Pro with full Admin rights etc. These are my lines in FSUIPC4.ini: [Programs] Run1=CLOSE,F:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Games\Microsoft Flight Simulator X\Modules\AISmooth.exe Run2=CLOSE,F:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Games\Microsoft Flight Simulator X\Modules\Linda.exe And that is the error I get every time: 468 FSUIPC couldn't run: "F:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Games\Microsoft Flight Simulator X\Modules\AISmooth.exe" [Error=193] 468 FSUIPC couldn't run: "F:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Games\Microsoft Flight Simulator X\Modules\Linda.exe" [Error=193] I have also tried it with and without quotation marks. Both programs run, if I copy the path's above into "Run" ... Other programs like Run3=CLOSE,D:\Aerosoft\Launcher\aeroSOFTLauncher.exe do work ... I tried of course also compatibility modes ... Many, many month ago this was all working, can't unfortunately say what has changed or if it's simply a WIN8 thing ... Any ideas? many thanks, Günter
  12. LINDA gives you many hundred functions to assign for the NGX ...
  13. I don't know if you have also a german OS, but there it is "kritischer Abbruch". Roughly translated as "critical break" ...(?) EDIT: AH, my answer doesn't make sense. You need of course the name of the WAV: windows forground.wav But I have WIN8 (and you not, because I know you hate it :mrgreen: ), don't know if the names of the files are the same...
  14. I think I can't help you there ... such timers are the worst scenario you could have. Just try and error, but there are some addons with such timing sequences where I ahve to give up also ... But you can of course send such a timing signal also, e.g. L:EX500_LocalTime = 10000 or whatever. I still wonder why paul still haven't discovered the LINDA LUA hunting abilities ... :rolleyes: Live could be so easy ...
  15. Just to be sure: You have tried it with "GAUGE_ANUM_MASTER_CAUTION" ... set it to zero or 1...? That's always a bit odd to give tips when I ahve no access to the addon itself. Such timings could be a real pity. I can only highly suggest LINDA to gather the LUA variables. With LINDA you have a list of all variables in the GUI, could click and test each single variable. And you have with the LINDA console a kind of live monitor to see what happens if you press a switch in the planes VC.
  16. Tom, as I see how you try to trap LUA variables with the log file: please try LINDA!!!! Just for hunting LUA variables it is a lot lot easier. You can immediately try out LUA variables from the LINDA GUI with parameters you want!
  17. Ah, that is why I said I'm no programer! The obvious does not catch my eye ... ipc.display("PARAM TEST START") ipc.sleep(2000) if ipcPARAM == 1 then ipc.display("PARAM 1") ipc.sleep(2000) elseif ipcPARAM == 2 then ipc.display("PARAM 2") ipc.sleep(2000) end ipc.display("PARAM TEST END") ipc.sleep(2000) [/CODE] this is working. LUA is [b]CASE SENSITIVE![/b] The correct command is [b]ipcPARAM[/b], not ipcparam. Same if you have Variables: [b]Var [/b]ist the same as [b]var[/b] :razz:
  18. For both of you, LINDA should be the solution hopefully. Please visit the LINDA forum on AVSIM for further information. If you have questions, then ask there, please.
  19. Thanks Pete for your searching here. Unfortunately I have not much time this and the next days. But I have decided already to reinstall the complete thing, anything else would not be a good solution. Just have to find time for it; but I'll report back! Why you have so much problems with WIN8 I do not know. The hidden shut down is rubbish, yes. But your low frame rates I can't confirm. FS is not running better or smoother, but in no case it's running one frame bader. The rest of the system is running a bit better. My conclusion for WIN8 (maybe someone reads this): If you are happy with WIN7, stay there. The difference, especially for FSX is not that much. If you have a bit fun of trying out new things, then try it. There are still a few things I do not like on WIN8 (shut down, no start menue button, no desktop gagets [yes, I have used them; yes, I found Rainmeter now]). But there are also many features I like so much now that I wouldn't go back (FileHistory, Metro screen for fast information, explorer additions, fast boot and shutdown) Hope, I get my issue solved after a reinstall (but will take a few weeks) And I hope Pete is making his peace finally with win8 :mrgreen:
  20. Hello Pete, I installed it clean. But as I siaid I have experimented a bit and there was also a hybernation issue (which I had also in WIN7) where I have played much with (without solving it). Therefore I made some registry changings. Maybe this screwed it up. First not as I do it for many years now by editing the stanrdard.xml and remove all entries for the joysticks (fastest way to unassign them all) But yes I have tried this also by unchecking them in the FS menue. What I finally wonder about: If the error happens, means the controllers have stopped working in FS and do not show up in FS and FSUIPC menues. Even when I do not stop FS, but just change to the device and printers window to look at the controllers properties they do show up and work there!? I will follow the link above and search around a bit, but I think, the cleanest solution would be a complete reinstall of the OS. I thought that would be necessary in only 66 days ...
  21. DirectInput8Create failed, return = 80040154 [/CODE] no, with this log, I found this post from you: http://forum.simflight.com/topic/70834-io-cards/#entry438543 will try to update directX now, but I think this will be up to date ...
