  1. Hi Pete, by chance, did you find a way to set the fps limit in FSX via FSUIPC? Thanks in advance Fulvio
  2. Hi Pete, I'm using a registered version of FSUIPC. is there: - a way to set FSX FPS limit via a FSUIPC key press setting (like traffic density) or - an offset available in FSUPC to set via an external program (I've browed the list but didn't find it) Thanks in advance Fulvio
  3. Hi Pete, as always, thank you very much for your efforts. I've just installed v. 4.217 and it seems to work well. Just a dumb question, just to be sure: The "Allow changes to FSX on weather" must be checked for both visibility graduating and wind smoothing, right? Thanks Regards Fulvio
  4. Hi Pete, I'm currently running FSUIPC 4.20. I was hoping that SP2 would carry some good news (for you and us) about weather interpolation among stations and wind smoothing, but it doesn't seem so. What is the current state of the art? Thanks in advance Regards Fulvio
  5. Pete, I've redone the whole test several times, and now the graduated option seems to be working as expected. Maybe I was messing up something with the settings and I didn't realize it. So far so good... Thanks again Fulvio
  6. Hi Pete, with reference to your notes: >>> How do you stand the aircraft "still" in the air, without pausing? If you pause I think the weather engine pauses, at least to some extent, too. As I wrote in the heading of each test, I was in slew mode, I was NOT pausing. In my FSX setting, the joysticks are disabled when in slew mode, so the aircraft doesn't move, unless I use F4, F1 (vertical motion) , or arrows (horizontal motion) ------------------------ >>> Not arrived yet. I'll look tomorrow. I've sent the zip files again, just in case ------------------------ >>>You set the maximum upper visibility to 10 miles!!??? This is topsy-turvy. The visibilty will have to decrease! I don't think I programmed for thatbut maybe it will work. I've never tried anything so strange! Sorry, there was a typo in my post. Really the setting in FSUIPC for graduated was 10000 (100 miles) and the test was actually done with the right setting ------------------------- >>> Ah, good. So it worked -- heavy decrease to the 10 sm you set!? The actual setting was 100 miles (see above) ------------------------- >>>That's because you set 10 miles, not 100. 100 miles in 1/100ths of a mile would be 10000, not 1000. The actual setting was 100 miles so the visibility should have been set to 100 miles. Please, have a look at the screen shots ------------------------- Regards Fulvio
  7. Hi Pete, I'm back after a couple of tests. ----------------------------- GRADUATED VISIBILITY TEST Aircraft in slew mode. No horizontal motion no weather in FSX With the aircraft standing still in the air, the test was repeated at 3000, 10000, 25000 and 40000 ft, (see the screenshots I sent to your account) I started with no weather, and no FSUIPC visibility setting, then I checked "graduated visibility (0,25000,1000)", cleared all weather and clicked OK. I took two screenshots, before and after the visibility change. I expected to have no impact at 25000 and 40000 ft, but instead I got a heavy visibility decrease Oddly enough, the graduated visibility set at altitudes >25000 ft should be 100 miles, but it seems less than the fixed visibility (60 miles) set in the next test ------------------------------ FIXED VISIBILITY TEST Aircraft in slew mode. No horizontal motion no weather in FSX With the aircraft standing still in the air, the test was repeated at 3000, 10000,25000 and 40000 ft, (see the screenshots I sent to your account) I started with no weather, and no FSUIPC visibility setting, then I checked "fixed visibility(6000,2000,2000,1000)", cleared all weather and clicked OK. I took two screenshots, before and after the visibility change. In this case there was a visibility reduction, the same for each of the four altitudes. (OK) ------------------------------ From the performance poit of view, the graduated option seems to be quite heavy, at least on my system, but I think it depends on FSUIPC constantly changing the weather, as you explained. If you need some more info, please let me know. Thanks Regards Fulvio
  8. Hi Pete, I'm going to try it. I'll let know as soon as soon as I have some results Thanks in advance Regards Fulvio
  9. Hi Pete, I've tried your new FSUIPC beta (4.163) and these are my findings: Now I can set a general visibility limit but, oddly enough, I see periodical white "flashes" in the sky (I see them at the top of the video, more evident when I fly without panel). Then I've tried the graduated visibility. On climbing from the top of the surface layer, I thought the visibility would gradually diminish, to reach 100 miles at 25000 ft. Instead, while you climb (no horizontal motion, vertical slew mode) you go through many "visibility borders". The effect is like climbing out of a low visibility layer, when you see the white layer below you, then, suddenly, you are again in another low visibility layer, then you climb out, and so on. Thanks for any suggestion Kind regards Fulvio
  10. Hi Pete, just to be clear, I'm definitely not a fan of weather themes or manually setting the weather in FS, I have done it just for test purposes. I always use downloded weather, and agree with you that is quicker, and generally better. What I'd really like to do is setting a general limit to the visibility in FSX, like I did in FS9, because I feel the standard visibility limit of FSX is way too high (from my experience, even on the clearest days, you cannot see more than 40-50 miles away). Take you time to see the logs, no need to rush. Again, thank you for your very professional support, many other authors should learn from you. Ciao Fulvio
  11. Hi Pete, thanks a lot for your prompt reply. I'm doing some testing and will send you the logs, and my comments. Regards Fuvio
  12. Hi Pete, I've recently bought and registered FSUPIC 4.16, to use the extra features I know there are some issues with FSX visibility setting via FSUIPC, as you clearly state in the manual, but mine seems not to work at all. I've tried both with downloaded FSX weather and with custom set weather, but nothing works, neither the graduated visibility, nor the fixed visibility limit, (used one at a time or together) Of course, I have my "allow changes to FS own weather" box checked. Do you have any idea? Thanks in advance W/XP SP2, FSX SP1, ATI XT800 XT Fulvio
  13. Really, I had downloaded the new version (4.12) but not installed it yet. With the new version, all seems to be fixed. Thanks a lot
  14. Hi Pete, I've noticed that, with FSUIPC 4.11 installed, FSX option of "saving a flight and having as the default flight " is not working. Disabling FSUIPC (renaming fsuipc.dll with another extension) solves the problem. I seem to remember that the same error already occurred last year with one of the last FSUIPC versions for FS9. Could you please have a look? Thanks in advance Fulvio
