  1. The issue is that your XP machine is probably starting up before the Win7 machine and the path while it is set has not been initialised. To do that you need to open MyComputer and open the assigned path and then closing it. You will then find it works okay. This is the reason I asked that UNC paths be allowed because you need to do it everytime you restart the machines. John Veldthuis
  2. I know it is not available at present but surely it can be added quite easily? I mean it did work under 8.6 by manually entering the UNC path but doesn't seem to under 9
  3. It works now, Thanks. Still have the same problem I have had since I brought it in that it keeps locking up (the actual hardware) usually when moving the course selector but on some of the other number selectors as well. NIce hardware but these lockups really annoy me as it requires power down of the unit and restart of FSX to get it going.
  4. Thats what I thought. This is my first time with lua scripts and I can't seem to find how to assign it to a key at the moment. :???:
  5. Thanks for this but can't seem to get it to work. Have the MCP Pro by itself and the displays all just have dashes through them. None of the switches work. Thought it may be FSLabs addon for the MCP for the Queen getting in the way but I removed it and no luck. My MCP is working because putting it in FS Compat mode FSUIPC sees all the button presses. Any ideas?
  6. Can we please have UNC connections allowed for the paths to various things. I run FSC on an XP machine remotely and run FSX on my I7 Win Ultimate machine. I know that you can use mapped drives to access it but it is a pain because I already have so many drives on the XP machine almost all the letters are used up. Also if the other machine has not booted up first the mapping does not work and you have to open it first. UNC mapping makes all these issues go away. I can then map FS10Path to \\MACHINE1\FSPlans\ instead of z:\MSPlans saving me a drive letter and all the hassles that go with it. I was doing it manually under 8.6 but the new V9 does not seem to like it at all and refuses and says to enter the path in options. John Veldthuis
  7. I actually pointed this bug out quite a long time ago and was given the information that it was not really an issue because you could change it by hand. I would have thought this very easily correctable issue should have been fixed by now.
  8. You will be unable to use the range after the detent at the bottom as there is no readings from there. After this there is just a switch. What I have done is to map each switch to the decrease function (cant remeber exact name at present) so as it is held there the reverse thrust comes on and builds up. I have mapped the release to set the throttle to zero for that engine. Not truly how reverse thrust is suppose to work but works well. Only way to get true reverse is the way you have done it but then extremely hard to get idle.
  9. Thanks, That certainly fixed things up for me and have full range of flaps selectable again. Much appreciated.

The extremely strange thing about this is that it was working 100% and the only changes have been to update to the latest version each time. I may try going back a few versions to see if this fixes it. ----LATER I went back and installed 4.318 and tested again the flaps and it went through the full range. Tried 4.322 and tried that but it would only get to flaps 25. No flaps 30. Went back to 4.318 and full range back. Tried 4.316 and again it gave the full range of flaps. I did notice that with 4.316 and 4.318 that the flaps 1 comes on between the position where the flaps 1 comes on in the later versions. Something must have changed between 4.318 and 4.322 that has caused this issue.
  11. I also note that if I do not use the calibration then it works fine as well giving all the selections but it is the wrong way to what I want the lever to do. If I send it to calibration then it misses the flaps 25 again.
  12. Okay I did the test flaps and got the following output. ********* LUA: "TestFlaps" Log [from FSUIPC version 4.327] ********* 581494 System time = 14:27:11, FSX time = 08:22:55 (21:22Z) 581494 LUA:

settings from Up, 1, 5, 10, 20, 25, and 30. However the log looks like it only did 6 steps.
  13. It looks like the reason for the lowest increment being less than the others was to get the rest spotted more centrally in their "zones", matching FS's values more consistently. It seems, however, that this 'correction' is lowering the top value enough to defeat PMDG's code. Please try http://fsuipc.simflight.com/beta/FSUIPC4327.zip and let me know. I've adjusted only the top-end, so if it is the top value i use 16383 instead of whatever the relevant number of increments provide. Regards Pete Tried it and I now get flaps 30 but it will not select flaps 25. Goes straight from flaps 20 to flaps 30 missing flaps 25 alotogeather.
  14. [quote name="Pete Dowson Monitor 0BDC as U16 for the flaps control' date=' 0BE0 and 0BE4 for left and right flaps indicators, also U16. If you set this to display in the FS window and in the Normal log you can see them in real time and also the Log will contain the SimConnect reads and writes. 0BDC goes to 16384 here when FSUIPC sends its top value. I've not idea why that doesn't work for PMDG. Maybe I need to stretch the values over a bit more. The fact that my first increment is less than the computed value disturbs me a bit. I wonder if that's a new thing. I'll trace it here, see why. Regards Pete[/quote] Have done that. When I pull the lever down I see a jump of 2731 for a split second on 0BDC and then it goes back to zero. As I continue to pull down I get the 2731 again. Results are: 0BDC 0BE0 0BE4 0 0 0 Shows flaps up 2731 0 0 Shows flaps 1 5461 12411 12411 Shows flaps 5 8192 13653 13653 Shows flaps 10 10924 14894 13894 Shows flaps 20 13653 15638 15638 Shows flaps 25 Thats all I get. I tried to attach the logfile as well but it said the extension log is not allowed. I tried txt as well and same result. Will try and PM it.
  15. And what are they? Are you calibrating the detentes in FSUIPC, or just letting the positions take care of themselves? 6 increments at 5460 gives a range of 32760, which is so near the maximum of 32767 that I can't see how it could fail to reach. I can try it here on the FSX default 747. [LATER] Okay. it works okay here with the default 747. The 7 values I get are -16383, -11052, -5592, -132, 5328, 10788 and 16254. Not sure why the first increment is 5331, but the rest are 5460 (well the last is 5466, but close enough). But nevertheless, they all work. Regards Pete I am letting the positions handle themselves and has worked in the past okay. I get exactly the same figures as you do -16383 which should be UP -11052 which should be Flaps 1 -5592 which should be Flaps 5 -132 which should be Flaps 10 5328 which should be Flaps 20 10788 which should be Flaps 25 16254 which should be Flaps 30 However the PMDG only gets to flaps 25. It has always got to flaps 30 up until about 4 weeks ago when I last few it. After the layoff it no longer gets there. I did try a default 747 from FSX and it sees all the detents okay and gets to flaps 30. Not sure what is happening as there has been no change at all to my PMDG setup. Is there an offset I can view to see what FSX is seeing for the flaps?
