  1. Okay, hope one of these is what you need. FSUIPC6.log FSUIPC6.ini FSUIPC6_prev.log
  2. Okay John, here are the files. I tried it both with keyboard numbers and numpad keys. Jerry FSUIPC6.4.log FSUIPC6.ini
  3. I have been having a problem with the ATC menu in P3Dv4.5 as well as the GSX menu. The number keys would not work in making selections in the menus. I could only make a selection with the mouse. I requested help on several different forums but no one had an answer. Today I did a complete re-install of P3D and started adding items one at a time and starting P3D and checking atc each time. As soon as I enable FSUIPC6 on startup and start a flight the menu problem begins. I began having this same problem a couple of months ago when I was using FSUIPC5 but didn't realize FSUIPC was the issue
  4. I flew with my throttle quadrant for the first time yesterday and it worked pretty well. I don't have the trim wheels working yet and have some finishing touches left to do. I'm wondering if LM is planning on doing something similar with scenery rendering as FS2020 in their next version? Maybe I should stick with 4.5 and wait for that.

  5. What are your system specs Pete? I'm running a Gigabyte 1080 GTX with 3 Samsung 46” HDTVs for front view. I had planned to get the RTX 3080 and move my 1080 to the 2nd computer for side views but you know what happened there; maybe someday this year. I was getting 50+ fps at Flightbeam KDEN but yesterday they dropped down to 6. Not sure what happened, maybe an Ulitmate Traffic overload. I also have TrueEarth GB but haven't had much time to try it. I've been converting my B747 cockpit to a B737 and building a 737 throttle quadrant using a 3D printer which has taken a lot longer time than
  6. I'm debating whether to switch to P3Dv5 or wait until Prosim737 will work with FS2020. From reading recent reviews FS2020 still has a lot of bugs and it would require updating my 50+ add-on airports which would be really expensive. I built a B737-800 home cockpit in my garage and I run 2 copies of P3Dv4.5, the 2nd one for side views so moving to P3Dv5 or FS2020 would be twice the price. I'm disappointed that Lockheed Martin doesn't offer an upgrade discount. Would you tell me why P3Dv5 is vastly superior to v4? Should I switch or wait for FS2020 to get all the bugs out?
  7. Hi there Pete, its been far too long!

    Anyway, im still running FSUIPC4 on my pc, linked it all together with FSDT / ADE 9X! Anyway, the point is everything has worked wonderfully for nearly 10 years or so, but for some reason to day, its just stopped working and an error a cured! can you assist? cheers buddy, keep up the good work.

    Cheers

  8. I'm using P3Dv4.5 and I'm wondering if there is an advantage to switching to Fsuipc6. What extras would it give me? Jerry
  9. Thanks for your reply Pete. I've never worked with FSUIPC user offsets or Lua plug-ins. Maybe if I could find a turorial on how to do this, otherwise I'll have to depend on OC or Prosim for a solution. Jerry
  10. Are their fsuipc variables for controlling the displays on the B737 FLT and LAND ALT displays on the Overhead Panel. I built a B737-800 Overhead Panel using Open Cockpits displays and encoders and I'm trying to get them to work in Prosim737. The script I downloaded from Open Cockpits for Prosim737 has a separate variable for each 7 segment display but in Prosim737 there is only one variable entry for all five segments in FLT ALT and LAND ALT. If I try entering the lowest segment display variable Prosim locks up. The encoders are changing the values as shown in the IOCPConsole but they are
  11. Pete Simon in the Prosim Forum told me to run the simconnect msi setup files in the redist folder within P3D. I tried that but it didn't help. Then I deleted the DLL.XML file and re-ran the FSUIPC installer. That fixed the problem. Not sure if I needed to do both those things but FSUIPC is now showing in the Addons Folder and Prosim737 is connecting to P3d. Thanks so much for your help. Jerry
  12. There are only 4 files in the Modules folder: FSUIPC4 Install, FSUIPC4.DLL, FSUIPC4.key, SimConnectP3D3.dll and the documents folder. Is that all that should be there. I looked at the log file and it says it found everything and installed ok. Jerry
  13. I started having trouble with Prosim737 not connecting to P3Dv3. After some searching I discovered FSUIPCv4 was not listed in the Add-ons menu in P3D. I checked my P3Dv3 Modules folder and FSUIPC4 and all its files seemed to be there. I reinstalled it just to be sure but when I restarted P3D there is the same problem. Then I deleted the files from the folder and ran fsuipc install as administrator. Then I started P3Dv3 as administrator but its still not listed in the Add-ons menu. Jerry
  14. Before I started using Project Magenta software I flew the PMDG 747. There was a setting in that program that would allow the flight to automatically pause at the top of descent in the flight plan. I was wondering if it would be possible to program that into FSUIPC. Or maybe even choose a waypoint to pause the flight at. If I was making a long haul flight I would take off and climb to cruise altitude, then go to bed and when I woke up I would finish my flight. I don't have the patience to sit for the hours it takes to cross the ocean and at my age I would much rather spend the time sleepin
