  1. You need the AllowShutDown in each Wideclient.ini and, if you want FS also to shut down, in WideServer.ini too. The Server maintains the command in the ShutDown offset for 10 seconds, or something like that, to give time to each of the others to see it, before it too closes. This works consistently here -- mixture of XP and 98SE PCs, TCP/IP. Pete
  2. Yeah. The control names are none too good in many cases. All FSUIPC does is read the FS assigned names from the CONTROLS.DLL, so it gets what MS called them internally. It's the only was FSUIPC can get the correct list for each version of FS without me building in losts of extra data. Regards, Pete

  4. Of course, they can program it how they like. Maybe they didn't like the way the FS A/P controlled vertical modes, but were happy with the horizontal control. You'd have to ask the authors. Regards, Pete

  6. Please use the FSUIPC weather logging (see Technical page) to help figure out what is happening. Maybe also enable IPC write logging. If you need me to check it, zip the appropriate log and send it as an attachment. Try to keep it short, please. Pete

  8. All FS controls and then some can be assigned to buttons or keystrokes in FSUIPC's Buttons and Keys pages. The Taxi light switch is "Toggle Taxi Lights". Pete

  10. Probably just not reading the documentation well enough? . Sorry, but I couldn't resistyou'll see it explains that this cannot work, in fact never did work, if you have Windows options set to show windows whilst moving them. I think XP defaults this on, for example. Regards, Pete

  12. If they do not use the Microsoft Autopilot for these things then there will be no "offset". The A/P variables will likely be maintained internally to their A/P gauge. Regards, Pete

  14. FSMeteo and Radar Contact V3 -- yes. FSNavigator, and panel components -- no. The latter are not separate programs but only modules of FS and cannot run except inside FS. There are separate instrument sets, such as Project Magenta (payware) and FreeFD (freeware) which you could investigate. There are links on the Schiratti site. Regards, Pete

  16. Sorry, I really know nothing about Squawkbox or VATSIM. Possibly SB is assuming it is talking to FS2000 or even FS98? The Multiplayer protocol changed between some FS versions. If no one else here can help I would suggest you might get better help with the Squawkbox folks. Do they have a forum or support site? Regards. Pete

  18. Interesting idea. Thanks. I'll bear it in mind. Best, Pete

  20. In the drop-down for either Keys or Buttons -- the controls are called "Autocoord Off", "On, "Set" and "Toggle". Auto rudder was always called AUTO COORDINATION internally in FS and the control names they assigned reflect that. Pete

  22. Using local or global weather -- i.e. where is your weather source? Also I would need to see your FSUIPC.INI file (from the FS Modules folder). You can also enable "weather logging" in FSUIPC's Technical page -- it will produce a file called FSUIPC.LOG which may also be useful, but take care as it can get very large. Always Zip anything you send unless very small. Thanks, Pete

  24. Yes. In fact I got this working okay just before I went on holiday, but didn't have time to make a release with it included. I'll try to get an interim update out soon, before I plough back into FS9 work. Regards, Pete
