  1. This sounds like maybe the USB port powering down...check in Device Manager and make sure all your USB HID devices and hubs do not have "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power" enabled. This option gets turned back on regularly without asking me when Windows updates on my machines.
  2. Seeing the same thing here. Works for a while, then MSFS becomes unresponsive to inputs via FSUIPC. I bring up the FSUIPC axis assignments window, which shows the axis inputs still moving, but the sim isn't getting them. In the log, there are hundreds of TransmitClientEvent failed! messages. Edit: This was using the default C208 Caravan.
  3. John/Pete; I've looked and cannot find any mechanism to allow programmatic control of FSUIPC's auto-save feature. If it already exists, would you please point me to it? If not, it'd be nice to have the ability to send an FSUIPC control to stop/start autosaves as set up in the FSUIPC menu. There are times, like on approach, for example, where it'd be nice to be able to have a LUA script disable auto-saves (e.g. below 5000' AGL) to prevent the auto-save stutter. Cheers Bob Scott
  4. Hi Pete/John; I've been trying to get OpusFSI to run using the FSUIPC Run= facility, and I kept getting an error=2 when I tried to run it with a command line parameter per the documentation. The advanced user doc says: "If the program needs command-line parameters these can be included by enclosing the whole value in quotes, so that the space(s) needed don't cause problems." It appears that guidance is in error...if the space and command line param are placed inside the quotes, it appears to be trying to use the parameter as part of the file name. If I use: Run1=READY,KILL
  5. Thanks Pete. I've been experimenting with it, and it's behaving rather unpredictably...with an airliner cruising at FL320, 310 KIAS and 492 KTAS, I write a 32-bit value of 300 to 0x0558, and the airspeed tape jumps...up(?) If I read IAS from offset 02BC soon after the write, I see values approximately 30 KIAS higher than written. I'm refining a utility that I use for repositioning the aircraft to skip ahead on a flight plan, and just moving the jet often results in a temporary but severe over/underspeed condition at the new location due to the difference primarily with winds, but a
  6. In the Initial Position set facility, offset 0558 is used to set the "airspeed". Is that TAS or IAS? Regards Bob Scott
  7. OK Pete, thanks. Turns out I had an (unintended) aircraft-specific button assignment that was masking/overriding the zapper's global button assignment...I must have bumped the wrong button at some point when I was programming one of the other buttons a few weeks ago. Cheers Bob Scott
  8. Hi Pete; I'm using P3D v4.3 and FSUIPC 5.132 -- seems that the traffic zapper has stopped working. I am using a joystick button programmed for the control. Cheers Bob Scott
  9. I just did a flight in the PMDG 747 in P3Dv4.2 with FSUIPC 5.123e installed, and the FSUIPC option did appear in the P3D Add On drop down menu, but selecting it did nothing. FSUIPC was still working in the background, though, as my flight controls and several remote apps that work via WideFS continued to operate. My Lua scripts stopped operating at that point, however. Oddly, one of the applications that uses the position freeze feature by setting a value in offset 3541 did freeze the acft position, which remained frozen indefinitely until I recoded the program to explicitly write a 0 to th
  10. Understood...and I wasn't asking you to go backwards. I was more interested in whether or not there would be some advantage in capabilities to offset what sounds like increased risk (to stability) if using 5.123d over 5.122a for the time being. Cheers Bob Scott
  11. Fabrizio--you should run PMDG Operations Center, as PMDG released an update for the 747 in P3D v4.2 that deals with the CTD issue at startup. Regards Bob Scott
  12. Hi Pete; Welcome back to the maelstrom. ;-) After reading your commentary below the 5.123d download link, I have to ask if there's any good reason to move from 5.122a to 5.123d in P3D v4.2 given that there seems to be some uncertainty about whether the Simconnect issue with 5.123c is actually fixed (or fully understood). Cheers Bob Scott
