  1. Thanks Peter, I'll have to incorporate this into my system. I have widefs I think or will purchase if I haven't. I'll post back how I get on. Graham
  2. Hi. Is it possible to re-direct sim connect windows from the main sim screen to another screen such as the lower eicas on my sim avionics driven hardware setup? It would be great if we could not have them floating in the sky. I'm talking about screens from programs such as PROATCX and GSX. Even a payware solution would be ok. My sim version is P3Dv4 Thanks Graham

    Morbid but valid question

    Thanks Pete.......and sorry for asking.
  4. Peter, The world has recently lost such an amazing genius. Im talking of course about Stephen Hawking. It struck me what would happen if we lost our own flightsim genious or you became too ill to continue with fsuipc. Is there anything in place for such an event. Sorry to ask this 8-( Graham
  5. When you refer to menus working now, are you including simconnect menus eg proatcx also? Thanks Graham
  6. Yes you are correct Peter. I'm glad they recognised this pause as a bug and working on it. Not knowing the internals of software I thought the pause could have been caused by the drawing of text and menus. I'd like to have the menus displayed elsewhere just like yourself also as it does spoil the immersion of Flight. I'm sure we'll get there Peter. Thanks Graham
  7. Thanks Peter, I hope this happens soon also. I'm finding version 4.1 extra annoying as it pauses my sim several seconds before displaying the text from Proatcx. I'll keep my eye on your forum for any progress. Thanks Graham
  8. Hi, I believe it is possible to direct simconnect messages such as ones generated by proatcx to a client pc using wideclient. I'm having difficulty finding how to do this. Im using the latest FSUIPC and WIDECLIENT versions together with p3dv4.1 Can anyone help Thanks Graham
  9. Thanks Peter, Ive just set the weather to 310@10 using sim avionics own server function. Shift Z revealed 310@10 as did the ND. Theres nothing wrong in my opinion with my weather generation or ILS positions in my scenery. The only thing wrong seems to be the lack of interest in the flight director which seems to go dead at about 800Ft AGL. I seem to be reaching the end of options but to just suffer this until someone else reports a problem.For now Ive reported this back to the Sim Avionics forum. I just posted here to see if anyone could suggest something to look for. Thanks Graham
  10. Guys, I have chosen this forum to air my problem as I understand it to be visited by some of the more seasoned simmers who inderstand the internal workings of FSX. I am using SimAvionics software to drive my JetMax 737NG. A very impressive peice of software. Unfortuately I am experiencing problems autolanding whenever a crosswind is present even just a few knots is enough. The aircraft follows the ils perfectly until about 800ft agl. Then the ils moves off to one side and the Flight Director seems to do nothing to correct it. If I hand fly the approach, following the ILS, I can hit the runway dead center every time so we are not looking at localiser position problems or scenery issues. As I say its only when a crosswind component is present. If left to autoland the aircraft lands at the side of the runway the wind is coming from. Its almost as if its being steered against the crosswind at too steep and angle. So let me tell you what Ive tried. Ive used fsx own live weather function as well as ASN and now ASN16. Ive even set up my own weather conditions within Sim Avionics software suite. All having the same effect on my aircraft. I have deleted FSUIPC.ini and generated a new one and made sure FSUIPC is not altering the weather in any way. I have been on SimAvionics forum where Mark the develeoper has helped as much as possible. He believes FSX is reporting the weather incorrectly. Here is how Mark explained what he thinks is happening :- The reported winds coming from FS are wrong. The A/P can only fly the aircraft based on data it receives, and it's receiving invalid data from FS. I think this is why you're the only one seeing this. I would focus on your FS installation. Check for any addon modules or programs. Disable as much as possible in your dll.xml and exe.xml Install the latest FSUIPC... Ensure FSUIPC is just using the default weather settings. After loading your initial flight, Clear ALL FS Weather, then Load the "Fair Weather" scheme in FS... (Incase something has been saved in your default flight.) Initially, has anyone else had a problem like this. Im not quite sure where to start looking as Ive never delved into any of the dll.xml or exe.xml and to be honest Im not sure what they are or how to check them. Can anyone help Graham
  11. Here lies the answer but haven't tried it myself yet. http://forum.avsim.net/topic/462711-problem-with-landing-lights-ai-aircraft/ Graham
  12. Pete, Did you find out what was causing this anomally. I used to have this problem then it went away and now its back again but I haven't done anything to cause it :( Graham
  13. Hi Peter, Hope you are well. Im sitting in the uk on holiday from working in Saudi so my installation and documentation of fsuipc are not with me. Ive just purchased a goflight advanced throttle with 737 handles. After reading various forums I'm assured that setting up the throttles and especially the flap lever is best done within fsuipc. One of the problems with the throttle assembly of a 737 NG is the ifly NG needs 9 detents but goflight supply a detent fixture of only 6 which seems really strange. Anyway I can make a new detent strip but perhaps the goflight software may not accommodate 9 detents so fsuipc may be the way to go. if anyone has information on the best way to go about this please do tell. I will however be reading the fsuipc docs too ;-) many thanks Graham Sumner
  14. Peter, I know you are away on holiday. Ive just installed the iFly latest update to use Activesky Next weather radar. This in turn updated my FSUIPC to the latest version. I use lua scripts that are automatically loaded by FSUIPC that read iFly offsets and give me lit LEDS on my goflight panels. Im sorry to say that after the update, no lights are working as if the LUA scripts arent working anymore. I think another gentleman FSUIPC user is also having problems with his throttles and also using LUA. Maybe this points to a change in FSUIPC regarding LUA. Ive reverted to 4.929 and the lights function normally again but Im not sure what impact this will have on the functionality of ASN weather radar. Enjoy your holiday Graham
  15. Avsim forums are down it seems as I was at first going to uninstall LINDA taking advice from there. I first took the tick out of Enable mcp combo in Linda ( even though it wasn't running ) and this changed the message to linda is loaded and ready. So there is "a way back " if I need to, Ive just renamed the linda.lua file in the modules folder to Linda.bak preventing whatever was loading it from doing so. Its done the trick it would seem Graham
