  1. I will try the delay settings when I get home from work. Also I noticed that on the FS PC, it indicated WideServer clients connected: 265. This cannot be correct? I think I have some problems somewhere. I only have 1 machine connected to my FS computer. I do not know if this problem is why radar contact is not recognizing my key presses on the flight sim pc to the remote pc which is running radar contact. I am posting also in the radar contact forum for help. For example, when I press 2 on the FS pc that is the initial command to contact clearance. I do not get a response from Radar contact on the remote machine. I hope this is a better explanation. Thanks.
  2. on remote computer. I am using the Actionkeys=yes parameter in my wideclient.ini. I had a working setup. Do I need to include any other parameters to make this work. I understand that I use the FS PC to enter Radar Contact commands. The remote PC should acknowledge those key presses. It is not working. How do I make it work? That is the question. I included my wideclient.ini file above. Am I missing any parameters in my wideclient.ini file that would cause this problem?
  3. I am using Radar Contact on a remote PC. Windows XP Professional for the FS computer and Windows 2000 Pro for the remote machine running radar contact.

  4. Pete, Would you please e-mail (jerelh@bellsouth.net) me the previously released official version of FSUIPC prior to 3.44? I think it was FSUIPC 3.41. I am doing some troubleshooting. Many thanks and Happy New Year.
  5. Pete, I apologize if I offended you. It just seems as though AS wants to pass the buck that it is your software. Both programs AS and yours are great packages but it is frustrating for the end user when these crashes occur and no one has any clues as to what the cause is. I am researching that error message I posted from my event viewer. I believe I can get more information using the /AUXSOURCE= flag. I think my Remote Registry Service is turned off. I will enable that service and let the sim sit at an airport and hopefully, this will give me a more detailed description of what is occuring when the FS shuts down on the ground or in the air. On a separate note, I have been reading over the FSUIPC and WIDEFS documentation and I have a couple questions: *Using the parameter TitleBarUpdate you indicate that if this is set to YES other programs and add-ons may not run correctly. Do you have a known list of apps that require a NO to this parameter? *I have seen posts revolving around the issue of using DXT3 textures and having "render to texture" enabled in FS. The posts indicate that using this combination with FSUIPC/WideFS can cause crashes. Is their any truth to this claim? I received the following from Damian at Activesky but I cannot find it anywhere in the FSUIPC & WideFS documentation. "FSUIPC requires render to texture off as documented. Not sure why anyone would release an add-on incompatible with FSUIPC?" Damian Clark HiFi Simulation Software Developer of ActiveSky http://www.hifisim.com Thank you.
  6. I am a professional Test Engineer for Delta Air Lines. I understand the Software Development Life Cycle. I am blaming no one, but a problem exists with communication between two computers per the event viewer. There is a defect!!! Whether AS or you want to admit it. This is a reproducable bug and it abhors me to know you are so obtuse about the dilemna considering I am a registered user of both FSUIPC and WIDEFS. Obviously, problems exist with your code because you come out with new versions every so often and AS develops new builds. Users are reporting problems. So take notes and do not be so offended!!! Thank you!
  7. I am running the FS 9.1 update. I had two of these today. I am currently sitting at an airport. I leave the computer on all the time. I have AS running now. I am at MMOX. Last night at about 2:25am according to the event log I received the same two messages. I was asleep at the time. AS was the only program running through WideFS at the time. When I fly Radar Contact uses Wide FS connection with AS. I flew today at about 5:15 pm and received the second FS shutdownno error messages. Same error messages in event log at 2:25am when not flying (sitting on the tarmac) and 5:55pm in flight. In flight this has happened before but in different places. I checked to make sure I do not have duplicate AFCAD's, and the usual problems where these CTD's occur per other threads in forum. Furthermore, another user replied to my post in the avsim AS forum: I'm experiencing a similar problem although I am not sure if they are related. My FS9.1 crashes to the desktop unexpectedly with no error message whatsoever. It doesn't happen too frequently but enough to be quite troublesome when I'm halfway through a flight. I actually have no idea what would cause the problem but I noticed the following in the WideClient log. I have posted this on Pete's FSUIPC forum as well as here. I hope we can work something out. ********* WideClient.DLL Log Class=FS98MAIN ********* Date (dmy): 13/12/04, Time 09:42:17.828: Client name is SHUTTLE 94 Attempting to connect now 750 New Client Application: "AS2004" (Id=3180) 1062 Connection made okay! 30703 New Client Application: "FSRealTime" (Id=3020) 3334375 Error on client post-Connection Select() Software caused connection abort 3334453 Ready to try connection again 3334453 Attempting to connect now 3335391 Error on client pre-Connection Select() Connection refused 3335391 Ready to try connection again 3335406 Attempting to connect now 3364922 Reception maximum achieved: 22 frames/sec, 1111 bytes/sec 3364922 Reception average achieved whilst connected: 7 frames/sec, 297 bytes/sec 3364922 Max receive buffer = 711, Max send depth = 2 3364922 ********* Log file closed (Buffers: MaxUsed 4, Alloc 41350 Freed 41350 Refused 0) ********* I am seeing the same behavior on my setup. FROM AS SUPPORT Hi All, Could be WideFS. Hope this helps, Jim ActiveSky Support
  8. Flight simulator shuts down unexpectedly when flying. I receive the error messages below from the event log. Any ideas? Has the issue with using Wide FS and ActiveSky been fixed in build 163? I notice Pete Dowson and Activesky are working very closely now. The description for Event ID ( 0 ) in Source ( ) cannot be found.
