  1. Hi, There is an easy solution, which I use since the beginning: When I download the ZIP file, I save it as FSUIPC_xxx.zip (with xxx being the version). By that I always know, which version I am installing and I can step back if there is a problem with the latest release (which did not happen as the tool is perfect). So this can be solved easily. Rgds Reinhard
  2. John, Thanks - no hurry and prepare for the future 😉 Rgds Reinhard
  3. Dear Pete, Dear John, Is there any chance to get in a future release of FSUIPC access to these Simconnect functions: SimConnect_DockView SimConnect_UndockView The reason: If you want to move views (e.g. panel pop-ups) to different screens dynamically in a multi-monitor environment, they must be unlocked. While you can save such views in P3D 4.5 on the main monitor as undocked window, this doesn't work for example on already undocked windows on a secondary monitors. There these panel views are always docked - even if you save the scenario as undocked. Loading them dock these views always. Manually I can unlock them and then move them with your ext.position function in LUA. But for unlocking them I have no function. Best regards Reinhard
  4. Hi, Thanks for sharing the LUA. Now I know, where you are coming from. You are using the relatively old FSX NumPad Control Utility from Al Klayton, which can be found here: https://simviation.com/1/browse-Utilities-65-5?mark=49328#49328 This is a set of LUA files, which provide the possibility to enter values for the radios via the NumPad. But checking the ZIP file I found, that there is also an ADF routine included to set the ADF. Why aren't you using this routine? Has your aircraft two ADFs (ADF1 and ADF2)? Be aware, that these modules typically will work with standard airplanes. If you use a specific add-on aircraft with an own implementation of the radios, these scripts will not work. And in the standard ADF implementation of FSX there was only one ADF implemented. ADF1 and ADF2 has been added later, as far as I remenber. If you want to adopt these routines, you should check the routine"NpCkeyData.lua". There the actual numbers are transferred to the respective radios via ipc.control calls. So I assume, you have to learn LUA programming to extend the functionality of these modules 😉 Or you contact Al Klayton, if he is still around in the flight simulator scene. Another option is to buy some hardware add-on (Saitek radio panel or similar). You will see, that this makes more fun and realism than typing the numbers via the keypad. Rgds Reinhard
  5. Hi, If you could share the file "NpCsetOBS.lua" here, there is a good chance to modify it in a way that you can use it. Rgds Reinhard
  6. Hi, Thomas answered already perfectly - the screenshot showed the misunderstanding clear. For the OBS: In that case you are triggering a LUA routine "NpCsetOBS.lua". That's a complete different way to trigger an action. You could also experiment with the Inc and Dec commands to check, if the ADF is reacting. If this is an commercial add-on plane, it's not always guaranteed, that they use the standard simulator functionality in their gauges. Rgds Reinhard
  7. Hi, You did not mention, which simulator you are using. In P3D V4 you have thre controls for ADF Card: 65882 ADF_CARD_DEC 65881 ADF_CARD_INC 66039 ADF_CARD_SET Which parameter did you use for ADF_CARD_SET? Please show a screenshot, how you did configure your key. RGDS Reinhard
  8. Hi, There is a double-quote missing in your command: handle, error= ext.run("C:\\SIOC.exe", "EXT_KILL"). Rgds Reinhard
  9. Hi, Please check the section about compund button conditions in the advanced user manual. There you should find the information you are looking for. Rgds Reinhard
  10. Jason, Here in text form: Offset 0BC0 WORD Elevator trim control input: –16383 to +16383 Offset 0BC2 WORD Elevator trim indicator (follows input) Rgds Reinhard
  11. Hi, I did additional tests with different InitDelay parameter values in the INI file to check, if the behaviour is changing. But this made no difference at all. Then I eliminated the call to vpilot, which is the entry before the errors occur. But the errors still occured. Rgds Reinhard
  12. Hi, I read your post in the E-Jet forum. Now I understand your request. Let's hope they improve anyhow the FDE of the plane, which is not very realistic at the moment, with the planned service pack. Rgds Reinhard
  13. Hi, What should trigger this action? airspeed, time, weather, taste of the beer you are drinking? Maybe you can specify your need a little bit more excactly. LUA functions can extend and retract flaps by one notch using for example the ipc.controls for: 65758 FLAPS_INCR 65759 FLAPS_DECR Rgds Reinhard
  14. Hi, One interesting observation: Scotfleiger gets different warnings compared to me. I also do not get exactly the same warnings all the time, but they are often quite similar. So it's maybe timing dependent. When you load the plane, Aerosoft runs some scripts for initializing the panel state to the user-configured preference (cold & dark, ready to fly, etc.). Also the Navigraph database is loaded etc. And they use simconnect too. Maybe there is something blocking your reading and you just have to wait a little bit before running your initialization. Just a guess without knowing the details. I enclose my INI and log files for your reference including also two logs from the A320, my flight file and the A320 FSUIPC profile. Rgds Reinhard A320_Logs.zip
  15. Hi Pete, As it has no side effect, it's low priority. All connections I need are working. So no urgent issue (but maybe interesting to know, where these strange messages are coming from). For the connection of my hardware to the A320 I only use Lvars and standard FSUIPC offsets, if the A320 uses them. So I make no direct use of SimConnect functionalities. Suppressing the messages is also a solution 😉 Rgds Reinhard
