  1. When without loading LINDA could FSUIPC - load LINDA MSFS-default profile when [LuaFiles] 1=ipcReady 2=LINDA or is that LINDA stuff (that LINDA.lua comes from a Linda installation I guess)
  2. What would be appreciated would be - FSUIPC option to start windowed and not minimize to the Toolbar, so to see plainly the loading - Right shift keys like MSFS, RAlt, RCtrl etc - more than often my LINDA Run1=KILL,k:\FSUIPC7\linda.exe won't start Linda - one (1) instance of FSUIPC be allowed without an error message & confirm box when EXE.xml is defined, just kill the one in memory and refresh with a new one.
  3. A CTD with beta release v7.1.0a, afraid to use it again, (using 7.1.0 now), booted me back to a 'auto computer repair'. Prob because I was trying the new updates and beta, had double FSUIPC.exe entries that I killed in taskmanager, and then, boom when restarting. A stuck FSUIPC not unloading after exit has happened several times 'instance FSUIPC already there' where I think to have stopped FSUIPC or, FSUIPC SHOULD stop with MSFS xml and doesn't, and then restart but discover 2 instances in Taskmanager (and FSUIPC not working) and have to kill both with a bad result now trying beta a. BTW the help says version 7.0.8
  4. I'll try to return this button box, it's not fit to be sold as a 'flightsim' add-on.
  5. Bought a buttonbox from DSD has 5 encoders that are 1. really slow, 2. give a very sort pulse. Read about Rotaries.lua and tried to implement but doing something wrong. What I did: renamed Rotaries.lua to RotariesDSD.lua which shows up in fsuipc.ini [LuaFiles] In fsuipc.log about DSD box says: Vendor=04D8, Product=8A3D (Version 0.1) changed in RotariesDSD.lua: Vendor = "GoFlight" Product = "RP48" to Vendor = "04D8" Product = "8A3D" (and tried Product="8A3D (Version 0.1)", no difference, nothing) Rotaries = { 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8} to Rotaries = { 8,9,10,11,12,13,14,15,24,25} ; 5 rotaries per fsuipc inquiry and assigned FS control: rotary H, 24/25 to AP Alt Var Inc/Dec then what? nothing different, what am I missing? I read my MPC-Combo rotaries do a slow/fast pulse, this DSD box apparently does not, but that is where Rotaries.lua is for?
  6. I'd guess you have to make a zzzwhatever.lua in the \modules dir that you trigger with your assign button and in the dropdown "lua zzzwhatever" in the lua the ipc.control(zzzzzzzzzzzzz, 0) <> "zzzzzzzzzzzzz" you find in the "The 2016 List of FSX and P3D Controls.pdf" f.i.: NEW VIEW 65825 VIEW CAMERA TOP DOWN 67156 ^^^ chk of these are the correct ones in the zzzwhatever.lua: ipc.control(65825, 0) -- new view (prob a copy of the active view) ipc.control(67156, 0) -- top down (change to topdown) or you prob do not need a parameter ipc.control(65825) -- new view (prob a copy of the active view) ipc.control(67156) -- top down (change to topdown) this is from the top of my head 2cts
  7. by the way, would it even be possible to 'unload'/kill/disable a (one like this) Lua? for instance when ThrottleManager.LUA is auto started in [auto] is it ever possible to 'unload'/kill/disable this lua from within the running sim (as in: reload button definition, will unload any an edited ini with deleted [auto], would then (re-)start pristine fsuipc4.ini) a ‘lua extension menu’ of some sorts might even/also come to mind (as in x-plane sometimes) where one can enable/kill/disable x-plane ‘extensions’, but in this case running lua’s so to manage ill-behaved or peculiar add-on prog’s (on the fly, not having to restart sim) ? thx
  8. here's your problem Looking for the current user's Application Data path: ... found as "C:\Users\rick office\AppData\Roaming" Now finding \Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v3\Prepar3D.CFG for all users, including this one Looking in "C:\Users\All Users\AppData\Roaming" ... No Prepar3D.CFG there .. .. Looking in "C:\Users\rick%20office\AppData\Roaming" ... No Prepar3D.CFG there Cannot edit the DLL.XML file to activate FSUIPC. manually, it cannot find the directory your "Prepar3D.CFG for all users" is in which is weird because on my WIn7 computer the approriate DLL.XML is in the USER directory P3D3 uses 2 DLL.XML find the directory your Prepar3D.cfg is in ("c:\Users\<USER>\AppData\Roaming\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v3" on my Win7 OS)) create or edit the DLL.XML in that directory contents should be <?xml version="1.0" encoding="Windows-1252"?> <SimBase.Document Type="Launch" version="1,0"> <Descr>Launch</Descr> <Filename>dll.xml</Filename> <Disabled>False</Disabled> <Launch.ManualLoad>False</Launch.ManualLoad> <Launch.Addon> <Name>FSUIPC 4</Name> <Disabled>False</Disabled> <Path>Modules\FSUIPC4.dll</Path> </Launch.Addon> </SimBase.Document> attached DLL.XML with only fsuipc reference DLL_XML.ZIP
  9. OhOh good news, found the culprit When testing/cleaning up the fsuipc4.ini I noticed I had ‘forgotten’ about this ThrottleManager.LUA (sorry about that) so, disabled in [AUTO] et voilá, 4 Throttle levers that’s the good news the bad news is, I really really (really) like that ThrottleManager.LUA it does ‘toggle switch and throttle lever switches to reverse thrust’ (I edited the Lua options within, so it doesnt do anything automatic and shows onscreen its status) so f.i. because of Warthog HOTAS switch layout; I land pmdg737 at idle, toggle (EAC and RDR/ALTM) switches underneath HOTAS throttle levers, Fsuipc_window on screen tells me throttles 1 & 2 are in reverse now, so apply reverse thrust, at 60, idle, toggle 2 switches, taxi that’s a great little LUA it appears to be programmed for 4 material throttle levers unfortunately, when I look at the ThrottleManager.LUA I have no idea where even to start to make it compliant with fsuipc Map Any chance you can have a look at the ThrottleManager.LUA? (You should try it anyway, it’s great) Perhaps you know of a working version Lua that does same? Thanks already attached, my custom ThrottleManager.LUA and again, sorry I missed this before ThrottleManagerLUA.zip
  10. I do all normal stuff 2 throttle default no problems whatsoever (baron, king air) I am an experienced fsuipc user, used to program compound buttons, use LINDA now, lots easier attached fsuipc4.ini it's really weird FSUIPC4.ZIP
  11. problem throttle mapping 1,2 throttle > 3,4 engine somehow my 4 engine mapping does not work reinstalled fsxse after long time DCS A10 installed P3D 3.23 (335 does weird) FSUIPC seems to work fine overall (default, PMDG) want a 4 engine in p3d, copy 747 and Constellation to P3D checkbox Map 1->12, Map2->34 exclude Throttlen_SET tested On and OFF (what is this?) in sim no luck will NOT throttle 3 or 4 ? in fsuipc.ini I see added [JoystickCalibration] .. MapThr12to34=Yes MapThr12to123=Yes Warthog HOTAS (drivers installed) / Windows7 x64 / Prepar3D 3.23 / installed latest FSUIPC 4.955c (registered) what am I missing?
  12. I reinstalled FSX SE recently after having flown DCS only for a while. I remember I liked assigning joystick letters to keep track of assignments ("Joy Letters") I tried [JoyNames] AutoAssignLetters=Yes and No according to “When first loaded, and each time the FSUIPC Options dialogue is used, FSUIPC4 scans the Windows registry and makes a list of the names and "GUIDs" lodged there for each of those connected joysticks which it refers to numerically” BUT this section is EMPTY: .. [WideServer] WideFSenabled=No AdvertiseService=1 Port=8002 Port2=9002 [JoyNames] AutoAssignLetters=Yes [Axes] PollInterval=10 RangeRepeatRate=10 0=0X,256,D,45,0,0,0 -{ DIRECT: Aileron/SlewSide }- 1=0Y,256,D,46,0,0,0 -{ DIRECT: Elev/SlewAhead }- 2=0S,256,D,23,0,0,0 -{ DIRECT: Flaps }- 3=1Z,256,D,10,0,0,0 -{ DIRECT: Throttle2 }- .. etc ? In an old backup FSUIPC.INI I did find this section populated with my Saitek devices. I have now attached Thrustmaster HOTAS. How do I get FSUIPC to register my devices? edit: BTW apart from not mentioning the joysticks everything works ok win7x64 FSX-SE latest fsuipc 4.955
  13. mine gives the ### Failed to obtain SIM1 Frictions access: no frictions facilities available! error but works fine
  14. mine does Saitek seems to have a problem with USB IQ address conflicts, try pulling other USB equipment My Logitech 350 keyboard I have to disconnect before connecting my Saitek and can than reconnect after Saitek, or there might be those Saitek disconnect/reconnect errors 2cts
  15. the changelog of the latest DLL shows 'move' eyepoint this is for non trackir somewhat farfetched perhaps but any chance you could look into 'moving' eyepoint of TrachIR - this would involve a dynamic eyepoint specifically up/down - for landing also left/right - for looking at instruments or perhaps a EZDok version where different eyepoints (views) could be defined & switched to (EZDok gave me a lot of problems, perhaps you can do better) thx
  16. sorry, mixed up, mouseview and 'mouse as yoke' got the mousewheel working on my Logitech wireless (after plugging in a logitech wired concurrently, that took a while!) so that's half the battle, but not Toglle because I use TrackIR, would want to use mouseview Toggle when my TrackIR is put in 'Pause' (so I can fixate the VC view to certain instruments, f.i.) .. & with the mouseWheel, the nearest 'button' .. I thought, well never mind :cool: anyway, I just realized, I can use the new mouseview toggle control added to the button code, on my MCP Combo, where I freeze my TrackIR i'll test that tonight, thx
  17. mouselook with no Controller(s) enabled? using v4.803 / saw the 'mouseview' options mouseview works in principle, with the regular FSX keys & controllers Enabled but I have Unchecked my "Enable Controller(s)" assigns Shift-O key to 'mouse look toggle' or 'mouselook toggle', or same to a button and the cross appears / the rightbutton menu is checked but no MouseView what am I missing?
  18. FSX SP2 win64 pmdg NGX fsuipc 4.743 anyone cares to duplicate? assigned FSuipc flaps, pmdg NGX 737-800 profile, to a Saitek Throttle Quadrant lever then, first time ever, figured I wanted to try FSuipc "Dt" detents tested on Default B738, 9 flap positions, 8 detents & works, copy these to a new profile "NGX" detents work for: UP.1.(not2/5). goes crazy at flaps position 2 & 5 .. (I monitor the VC Flap Lever) (perhaps have something to do with pmdg NGX slats programming (those move at 2&5?) anyway anyone cares to confirm there's a problem here, perhaps its my setup my flap detents: .. [JoystickCalibration.NGX] ..

  19. really clever idea, Im gonna try EDIT: tested: this is a Great Mod (some problems with hanging REV (I suspect dirty switches perhaps?), but sort of 'cleaning themselves' now that I use these buttons more) the 'automatic toggle back to forward throttle' is quite an experience
  20. well, i tried so i'm not the brightest in programming file rudderslew.lua attached in dropdown to Z-axis ::loop:: ground=ipc.readUW(0x366) if ground == 0 ipc.control(65869) -- AXIS_SLEW_HEADING_SET 65869 else ipc.control(65764) -- AXIS_RUDDER_SET 65764 ipc.control(65869) -- AXIS_SLEW_HEADING_SET 65869 end sleep( 2000 ) goto loop rr, no rudder? so how wrong am i here?
  21. tried with a "space after that" i figured, perhaps this works in the [axis], but alas tried rudderslew.lua " if ipc.readUW(0366)= 1 -- //ground=1 ipc.control(65764) -- AXIS_RUDDER_SET 65764 ipc.control(65869) -- AXIS_SLEW_HEADING_SET 65869 else ipc.control(65869) -- AXIS_SLEW_HEADING_SET 65869 end " and assigned to axis (lua rudderslew) but nothing not sure which ipc.readUW(or other) to use N.B also, weird sideeffect, but perhaps superflues this lua rudderslew.lua seems to trigger FSX at load to say 'detected a problem' 'third party software .. ' 'FSUIPC4.DLL v4.726' 'do you want to run this software' etc when i xchg back to 'FSUIPC4.DLL v4.703', no such error thx, mt EDIT: found a pointer in USER CONTRIB, ill be allright (ground=ipc.readUW(0x366))
  22. PFE Pro Emulator, as I can remember when in cruise, has an option to 'request' ATIS of the destination airport and sends this to the kneeboard (with a 'ding') so there's a way from inside FSX (dont ask me, no idea)
  23. i need help with Lua because 3=RudderSlew 3.1=W0366=1,C65764 ;65764 AXIS_RUDDER_SET 3.2=W0366=1,C65869 ;65869 AXIS_SLEW_HEADING_SET 3.3=W0366=0,C65869 ;65869 AXIS_SLEW_HEADING_SET oops :rolleyes: (or variations of above) doesnt work (dont even show in the dropdown) a pointer for howto lua would be appreciated (rusty here, long time ago)
