  1. Ok Pete, understood. Thanks a lot for going through this together.
  2. Pete, thanks again. Could you tell me one or two dll's that get updated to 61637 by Acceleration, so I can do a final check?
  3. I concluded normally a 1.5hr flight with no adverse findings. I checked all the files in root directory one-by-one; all are 61472, except the exe (which was 61637, and now is swapped with the sp2). I don't know of course what other files (besides the exe) are updated by Acceleration to a newer version (newer than sp2). It still beats me how this exe version was found in my installation. It is there for quite some time now, without any visible or persistent problems ! And what is more strange, is that FSUIPC (at least at the latest version) would reveal such problem in other users also, but I see nobody else reporting anything, so I guess this case was one in a million !!! Anyhow, it seems settled. flight_FSUIPC4log.txt
  4. I copied the sp2 exe in the installation folder. Fired up ok and closed. The new thing I see in FSUIPC log is the lines regarding the G3D fix which I think that were not recorded in the past. I'll try a sort flight and report back. sp2_FSUIPC4.txt
  5. Thanks for putting up with this. I just extracted (not installed) the sp2 installer. In there, there is ROOT_fsx.exe, which I suppose that if renamed can be put in its proper place. The strange thing is that the exe in the sp2 installer has a timestamp "12/12/2007 20:30", while the Acc one is "9/26/2007 16:09", meaning that sp2 is later than Acc ?!?!?!?! Anyhow, I will try tomorrow to rename the existing exe and place in the extracted from the sp2 installer (if you do not think that there is anything wrong with such a trial). Of course I will report back.
  6. This is driving me crazy. Acceleration is only available in cd, so there is no way to install it by accident with a download. I cannot figure out what can be possibly wrong. Even if I have installed Acc without realizing it ( :cry:), all the other files should have been version 61637, which they are not (they are all 61472) !!! I suppose that reinstalling sp2, will overwrite a lot of critical files, that due to addons or mods, have been altered. So, this leaves me with two questions: Is there any way to extract the exe file from the sp2 update installer? If I live with this error in FSUIPC, will the rest of its functions (and the friction lua plugin) operate as they should? Thanks for helping out with this.
  7. I remembered that I had noticed way back this issue with fsx.exe version number in my installation. Never had any problems, but I posted a question in fsdeveloper (http://www.fsdeveloper.com/forum/threads/fsx-version.84549/) from which I did not receive any helpful info.
  8. From FSUIPC4Install.log: INSTALLATION FOR FSX: SetupPath="C:\Program Files\Microsoft Games\Microsoft Flight Simulator X\" Checking version of the FSX.EXE: ...Version 10.0.61637.0 (Need at least 10.0.60905.0) I've looked my FSX.exe properties and it is: Product version: 10.0.61637.0 (FSX-Xpack.20070926-1421) Size: 2.61 MB Date modified: 9/26/2007 16:09 If this is Acceleration, this is totally unexplicable. I have the Deluxe version installed, updated to SP2 via the downloadable updates. Never installed Acceleration. Most of the other files in install directory have properties with "Product version; 10.0.61472.0 (fsx-sp2.20071210-2023). Note (regarding previous note) I just mentioned it, because normally there are no such records in FSUIPC4.log, when I just load a flight and then close (no take off). So, this was a "question" if something was ubnormally triggered by the new FSUIPC.dll. But, is probably better to leave this aside for the moment, since it seems that we have a major mystery in our hands, regarding the core issue here.
  9. Here is the new log file. I just loaded a flight and then closed the sim. Note (unrelated to the issue discussed): The log file is full of records related to a lua plugin, which should not be there since the aircraft did not take off. G_Pete_FSUIPC4.txt
  10. I could not paste for some reason, so I attach it in a txt file. Pete_FSUIPC4log.txt
  11. Pete, I think the sim1.dll in my system is the original one. I have forwarded by email as requested. Thanks for helping out.
  12. FSX sp2. Previous fsuipc version was 4.928. As far as I remember I dont use a hacked sim1. I use the relevant lua plugin. I will check again and report back.
  13. I just installed today 4.929 and then 4.929c. In FSUIPC4.log, gets logged 2652 ### Failed to obtain SIM1 Frictions access: no frictions facilities available! Haven't touched anything else. What this can be?
  14. The vertical speed at touch down is best captured using offset 31A0. Offset 030C (and 02C8 also) seem to contain the vertical speed displayed on the VSI, which has a time lag (as in RL). Try to experiment by capturing all offsets at touchdown moment, and you will see the differences. They can be substantial (with a firm landing and/or steeper glidepaths), or smaller (with a greaser and/or shallow landings).
