  1. Thomas and Pete, Thank you very much for your help with this. That change, when made with P3D not running has made the difference. After sending my last comment I realized that the other dialogue boxes would of course show properly as they would not be affected by the FSUIPC.ini file, so this change should work. Again, thanks for taking the time to help me. Rick
  2. Hi Thomas, First, I am not convinced that this setting is the cause as all other dialogue windows display properly in the center of my central screen when I click on them in the add-on menu. It is just FSUIPC. However I did open the FSUIPC6.ini file and make the changes, saved and tried but the same results. When I opened the .ini file again the changes were not saved. I have attempted to save a number of times in notes but no luck. I am totally mystified. Rick
  3. Hi Thomas, Thanks for the suggestion, but there was no change. The screen remained black though switching to windowed mode allowed me to use the escape key to bring back the sim. It didn't when in full screen mode. Rick
  4. I have a registered copy of FSUIPC 6.08 and am using the latest update for P3D v5. I also use a PFC C2 Professional Console and MFG Crosswind pedals. P3D loads fine and all controls for the rudder, except toe brakes, throttles and yoke perform well. However the toe brakes are not working and so I click on FSUIPC add-on on the P3D menu bar to set brakes. When I do the screen goes black. The sim continues to function in that I can still hear the engine etc but the FSUIPC screen does not show on the black screen. I also have P3D v4.5 HF2 and this also happens in that version. Last week there were occasions when I could get the setup FSUIPC screen to show and then try to set axis but they would no take. I have settings from before and thus my FSUIPC6.ini file includes those but it did not display on the screen when it did appear last week. This happens with P3D planes and A2A 172 Trainer in both sims. Thank you for any help. Rick FSUIPC6.log FSUIPC6.ini
  5. Pete, Thank you. I had not scrolled down the page to see The Additional Free Software. Regards Rick
  6. Hello John, I am running both P3Dv4.5 and v5. I downloaded and installed a paid version of FSUIPC 6 installing it for both P3D versions using a default install. I use a Precision Flight Controls C2 Professional console. It has always worked with FSUIPC 5 in P3Dv4.5 but is no longer recognized for axis assignment in FSUIPC. Have I missed installing something? Thanks. Rick
  7. John and Pete, Thanks for the the upgraded program. Rick
  8. Pete, Ack, and thanks for the advice. Rick
  9. Pete, Thank you for the very quick response. I currently have a mixture of profiles. In some cases I have an aircraft specific profile (MilViz Beaver) and in other cases aircraft type (Single engine prop). I am using a PFC C2 Professional console with several different throttle quadrants and I now understand that if I set up aircraft type profiles (single engine prop / single engine turboprop etc) that FSUIPC will automatically keep axis assignments and calibrations for each throttle quadrant eliminating the need for me to re-calibrate using the PFC calibration program each time I change the throttle quadrant on the console. That being the case I want to set up only aircraft type profiles and assign aircraft to them and thus eliminate aircraft profiles. Having thought about it again, I may be best off deleting my whole INI file and starting from scratch with a clean one to avoid any "legacy" issues if I don't delete fully some profiles. What do you advise as the safest option for a non programmer like me? If starting over do I just delete the whole FSUIPC5.INI from the Modules folder and run P3D to regenerate it again without the profiles? Thanks again. Rick
  10. I have a Registered copy of the latest version of FSUIPC. I have just converted my INI file from "use profiles =Yes" to "use profiles = files". If I want to delete a profile do I need to delete if from both the INI file and the sub folder or just one? Thanks for your help. Rick
  11. John, Great, thank you. I am beginning to understand FSUIPC5 a little better now, bit by bit.
  12. I recently re-installed my flight sim and OS. After installing FSUIPC I then wanted to make it easier to deal with Win 10 updates that have a tendency in the past to change the number assignments ( top of page 21 in the manual) and thus I changed {JoyNames} to AutoAssign letters. So my FSUIPC5.ini file now looks like this below with both number and letter assignments. Is this the way it should look or should I delete the number assignments and just leave the letter assignments? [JoyNames] AutoAssignLetters=Yes 0=PFC Cirrus II Pro 0.GUID={0E566030-DA0A-11E8-8007-444553540000} 1=MFG Crosswind V2 1.GUID={0E568740-DA0A-11E8-8008-444553540000} 2=Logitech G13 Joystick 2.GUID={8A513DA0-FCAA-11E8-8003-444553540000} A=PFC Cirrus II Pro A.GUID={0E566030-DA0A-11E8-8007-444553540000} B=MFG Crosswind V2 B.GUID={0E568740-DA0A-11E8-8008-444553540000} C=Logitech G13 Joystick C.GUID={8A513DA0-FCAA-11E8-8003-444553540000}
  13. Pete, Bought FSUIPC5 from SIMMARKET 2107-06-04 and have only downloaded subsequently from this support forum. I trust that these are both authorized. if not please advise. Rick
  14. Pete, Upgraded to P3D4.4 as indicated in my initial post. The manual I referenced I printed from the last download when I was using P3Dv4.3 I believe, and I obviously didn't key on the date of the latest v5.15 download manual included therein. I probably had the thought in mind that there would be very minimal changes in the manual with a minor change in the P3D4 versions vice a new P3Dv5. Rick
  15. Pete, The manual I am using is "FSUIPC5: Application interfacing module for Lockheed-Martin's Prepar3D version 4" dated 1st June 2017. Version 5.102 of FSUIPC.dll. The reference is top of page 23 titled "PFC equipment controlled by PFCP3D.DLL" and the comment is on the first line. Is there a more updated copy that I should download? Thanks again for helping those of us who are strictly computer users and who understand little of the programming or terminology behind the magical workings. I fear that there are many like myself.We get great enjoyment from our simulators and I appreciate the software that you have created. Rick
