  1. Hi Pete, You helped me tremendously with what to me was a new concept of using Profiles that include, for example, all Boeing 737-800s in FSX. I was seting them all up for each livery which meant a lot of unecessary lines. My comment is this: Thank you, Mr. Dowson. You have contributed so much to the Flight Sim community and I did not properly thank you. So, I am posting to the forum to do just that. Thank you, Pete, you are the Wizard of Oz to all of us. Thank you, Tim Sherwood
  2. O.K. All's well that ends well. Actually, I was going to read your last post again and I wanted to actually read through that fsuipc.ini file. I'm ashamed to say I have never looked very closely at any of those .ini files. But, I did have a peek at inside the module from within FSX and it looks very interesting. It appears as though I could very easily include another B738 livery just by using the "Based On.." functiion. Anyway, thanks again for all your help, Pete. Tim
  3. Oh, Pete, "Dang me, they ought to take a rope and hang me." (A song) I checked the .ini file and guess what? It said: ShortAircraftNameOk=Yes So, I changed it to: ShortAircraftNameOk=substring And guess what, Pete? (You know "what" don't you) It worked without the extra profile lines I added. I can't imagine how that line got changed to Yes instead of substring, though. I never touched it. Is it possible when I installed FSUIPC 4.81 that 4.81 changed it? Anyway, you're right again. It works now. Thanks again, Pete. Next time I fly my Level-D 767 to London, I'll have to stop by and take you to lunch. Thanks, Tim
  4. Hi Pete, Yes. I really like the .ini file you sent me. Wow! I wish I could lose as much weight as my old .ini file did! I am so glad to see that can be done because it will be so much easier to maintain than the mess I had. I didn't think it possible to just reference the aircraft model and not each livery, though. I have FSUIPC 4.81 installed and every aircraft in the fsuipc.ini file you sent me worked great...except for the Level-D 767-300ER. But 4.81 set up the Delta 767 for me with the button assignments that I had used. Using that as the pattern I changed the lines in your .ini file but only where the Level-D 767 is concerned. Those changed lines look like this: [Profile.B767-300ER] 1=B767-300ER 2=Level D Simulations B767-300ER - United Airlines 3=Level D Simulations B767-300ER - Delta Air Lines 4=Level D Simulations B767-300ER - British Airways 5=Level D Simulations B767-300ER - Varig DXT3 6=Level D Simulations B767-300ER - Continental Airlines 7=Level D Simulations B767-300ER - US Airways 8=Level D Simulations B767-300ER - United Parcel Service 9=Level D Simulations B767-300ER - Alaska Airlines 10=Level D Simulations B767-300ER - North American Airlines 11=Level D Simulations B767-300ER - Executive Jet [buttons.B767-300ER] 0=P0,7,C65595,0 1=R0,10,C65602,0 2=P0,6,C65752,0 3=P0,11,C65909,0 4=P0,9,C65853,0 5=P0,8,C65589,0 6=P0,1,C65570,0 7=P0,4,C65759,0 8=P0,5,C65758,0 9=R0,2,C65607,0 10=R0,3,C65615,0 11=U0,11,C65584,0 12=U0,8,C65584,0 13=U0,9,C65584,0 I left the first line alone but added the rest of the profiles. It works perfectly now and leaves the .ini file you modified Lean and Mean. :razz: Thank you so much for your help and for the learning experience. Tim
  5. Hi Pete, I am truly sorry I didn't refer to this thread. I don't use these forums as often as I used to and have forgotten some little courtesies. As I have told you before, Pete, I have a great respect and appreciation for your excellent work with FSUIPC. I really do appreciate all your help, Pete. As I've said before, Flight Simulator (any version) would not be of much interest to me without the tremendous improvement in the sim experience made possible by your invaluable contribution with all versions of FSUIPC. In my opinion, you have contributed more than Microsoft. Tim
  6. I'll have that for you later this afternoon, Pete. I need to reinstall FSX in order to do it the way it was. That won't take long with Acronis, however. Thanks, Tim
  7. Hi Pete, Thanks for the quick reply. Here's what I did with the info I read in the FAQ: I recovered an Acronis Image that never had FSX on it and reinstalled FSX. After intalling the SP1 and SP2 I installed FSUIPC 4.80 and everything worked fine. Until I copied just the Button and Key assignments from my old FSUIPC.ini file. Of course that changed the size of the ini file and things stopped working again. I went back into the ini file and deleted all the Button and Key assignments and, after one complaint, FSX started and ran just fine. I tried pasting the assignments back into the ini file and FSX went back to crashing everytime. I have not tried recreating all those assignments with FSUIPC whild FSX is running. I don't know if that would work or not; I will try that, later. Other than the lack of support for FSUIPC prior to version 4.80, is there any other reason I should continue trying to get FSUIPC 4.80 to work? Thanks, Tim
  8. I am currently running FSX on Windows 7 x64. I have been using FSUIPC 4.7c with no problems. I have tried to install the new FSUIPC 4.80 and, after doing so, FSX tells me there is a problem with the third party program (FSUIPC4). I tried removing the old module first and then installing 4.80 but nothing works. Is there something I am not understanding, here? I would appreciate any help you can give me. Thanks, Tim
  9. Thanks, Paul. I will try the semi-colon. I didn't think of putting the comments on the same line. I appreciate the help.
  10. Hi Pete, I've been away for a couple of years taking a sabatical from FS. I'm back to using FS9 and have been relearning how to set up Key Presses in FSUIPC v. 3.98 and I would like to know if there is a way to document the fsuipc.ini file. I want to make comments to myself so I will be able to see at a glance what a particular Key Press does. I tried the usual means, 2 forward slashes, apostrophe, semi-colon. When I come back to the file after restarting FS9, I see the following preceeding my comments: !1= Is that the way to do it? Or, is that an error message? Or is it not possible to add REM lines to the fsuipc.ini file? Thanks, Tim
