  1. Thanks a lot, works like a charm 🙂
  2. No luck here, either, trying to use RUNIF. Thanks, Hans
  3. Same here. But I will try a few more attempts later. The cmd in windows shell works great. (For your information, I have the DVD version of FS2020. I pre-ordered the MS version but all download attempts failed. MS was kind enough to grant me a refund and hence I bought the disk version. Now anxiously waiting for PMDG to release the 737). (Yes, I know, not relevant to this subject, I just couldn't resist). Hans
  4. Thanks a lot, Pete, I will give it a go later this afternoon and keep you posted on the result. Hans
  5. Thanks John, yes of course it should be the other way around, I agree 100% with you, but I came to think about this because I start up FS2020 multiple times per day (as I do P3D). After I started up FS2020 I am being woken up by the fact that my throttles aren't working (they are assigned in fsuipc) and that I, for the umpiest time, forgot to run FSUIPC7 first :). Would it be possible to make FSUIPC stay resident after shutting down FS2020 then?
  6. Hi Pete and John, Wondering if it would be possible to fire up FS2020 from within FSUIPC7? I guess that most probably a RUNIF would accomplish that but then one would have to know the location of the fs2020 executable file. So far I wasn't able to find it. So I am thinking about a possibility to add a feature in FSUIPC that will start FS2020 by, for example, hitting a button.Just wondering 🙂 Thanks, Hans
  7. Thanks Pete. I overlooked the obvious, you were right, the throttle controller in P3D was not deactivated <shameful blush> Best, Hans
  8. Hi Pete/John, After I installed the latest build of PMDG's 737 NGXu (July 4, 2020 version) I ran into a throttle problem using these 737s under P3Dv5HF2. No way I can get the throttles to work correctly, no matter how much effort I put in calibrating them in the correct way. (See attachments). The weird thing is, that I don't run into these problems with the same 737 NGXu version in P3Dv4.5HF2. My joystick is a Thrustmaster T-Flight HOTAS, operating system is Windows 10 x64 latest version. Also I am running the latest versions of FSUIPC 6.0. Can you give me a hint please what I might be overlooking or might be doing wrong? If you need more information, please let me know and I will happily send you all info needed. Thanks, Hans van Wijhe
  9. John, I had both a copy of fsuipc5.ini and fsuipc6.ini in the modules folder of P3Dv5. As I "updated" fsuipc5.ini rather than fsuipc6.ini, in which still runif asp4 was included, I was just editing the wrong fsuipc.ini file. Yes, stupid of me I know. When I finally found this out I then edited the fsuipc6.ini file to spawn ASP3D instead of the previous AS version and then all went fine. I hope I made myself clearer now. Stay safe, Hans
  10. My apologies. All is working fine. I forgot to delete the fsuipc5.ini file from the Modules folder of P3D5HF1. Hans
  11. When I use "RunIf1=CLOSE,D:\ASP3D\ASP3D.exe" in fsuipc5.ini for P3Dv4.5HF3 all goes well, upon firing up P3Dv4 ASP3D is launched, but when I use the same "RunIf1=CLOSE,D:\ASP3D\ASP3D.exe" in fsuipc6.ini for P3Dv5HF1 this command is skipped but all following RunIf's are being launched. Both fsuipc5/6.ini in P3Dv4 en P3Dv5 have an identical content. The log file states that FSUIPC couldn't run: "D:\AS_P3Dv4\AS_P3Dv4.exe" [Error=2] Do you have any idea what might be going wrong and how to resolve this? Thanks and stay safe, Hans van Wijhe
  12. Pete, All works now as it should. Thank you so much for your help. I was totally focused on the "Throttle Set" option as that worked perfectly with all previous versions of PMDG's aircraft. Thanks a gain. I owe you one Hans van Wijhe
  13. You are describing three ways to assign axis controls in the user guide. I tried the first two ways you described. Sorry for having been unclear. OK, at least I now could calibrate a minimum, idle and maximum zone. It looks as if it is working as I hoped it would now. Have to run, though, will try more later today. Thanks, Pete Hans
  14. Pete, I did read the Axis Assignment part in the user's guide carefully, but still I cannot get the Thrustmaster to do both forward and reverse thrust on its throttle. I tried options numbers 1 and 2 as per the manual, the joystick now can be calibrated, but as said, no success in getting it to do both forward and reverse thrust. It's either one of these two. I assigned the joystick to Axis Throttle, also tried Axis Throttle1 Set, and 2 set, same result. either only forward or reverse, not both on the same axis. I simply can't get both on the same axis. ANy idea what I might have been missing? Thanks, Hans
  15. I will try to MAP my throttle later today, but actually I don't mind controlling both aircraft throttles with just the one Thrustmaster throttle. Or do I misunderstand you here now? Anyway, I will try the MAP option. I am not sure what you mean by where I assign my throttle to. In FSUIPC I indeed did set it to Throttle Set (see picture in my initial note) and so far, through the years, this have been working fine as both forward and reverse thrust with just one axis on the Thrustmaster Hotas. Thanks for all your help, Pete.
