  1. I apologise for my lack of knowledge with this type of stuff, and so if anyone can point me in the right direction, that'd be great. I am currently having the problem with FSUIPC and this DLL that, whenever opening the simulator, or the simulator crashing, it also affects my application - for example, during startup of the simulator, I am unable to move the application window around, like it's "hanging" waiting for the simulator. Is there a way to fix this? Do I need to run the "connection" in a seperate thread?
  2. Hello Will, I apologise for the late response - haven't been simming that much lately. This fix worked for me! Thank you very much!
  3. It has been working fine for months now, but yesterday, it started having the problem where my Saitek X55 throttle quadrant buttons and axes just aren't seen by FSUIPC. I've tried connecting the USB in another USB port, but that doesn't seem to fix the problem. In my Saitek drivers, it recognises the buttons, and in my Prepar3D options, it recognises them as well. I've tried renaming my FSUIPC4.ini to FSUIPC4.ini.bkp to let it create a new ini, but I'm still having the same issue. This is my FSUIPC4.ini atm: [General] UpdatedByVersion=4938a History=NMQ0JLP5PX0Q9YQYDWPAF InitDelayDevicesToo=No NewInterceptTextMenu=No UseSystemTime=No UseMidMouseBtn=Yes MouseWheelMove=No MouseWheelTrim=No MouseWheelTrimSpeed=1 JoystickTimeout=20 PollGFTQ6=Yes BlankDisplays=No FixControlAccel=No FixMachSpeedBug=No DeleteVehiclesForAES=Yes AutoScanDevices=Yes VisibilityOptions=No OneCloudLayer=No CloudTurbulence=No CloudIcing=No GenerateCirrus=No SuppressCloudTurbulence=No MaxIce=-4 MinIce=-4 UpperWindGusts=No SuppressWindTurbulence=No SuppressWindVariance=No WindTurbulence=No TurbulenceRate=1.0,5.0 TurbulenceDivisor=20,20,40,40 SuppressAllGusts=No MaxSurfaceWind=0 WindLimitLevel=200 WindDiscardLevel=400 WindAjustAltitude=No WindAjustAltitudeBy=2000 SmoothBySimTime=No WindSmoothing=No WindSmoothness=2 WindSmoothAirborneOnly=Yes PressureSmoothness=0 TemperatureSmoothness=0 DisconnTrimForAP=No ZeroElevForAPAlt=No ThrottleSyncAll=No WhiteMessages=No ShowPMcontrols=No SpoilerIncrement=512 MagicBattery=No RudderSpikeRemoval=No ElevatorSpikeRemoval=No AileronSpikeRemoval=No ReversedElevatorTrim=No ClockSync=No ClockSyncMins=5 ClearWeatherDynamics=No OwnWeatherChanges=No TimeForSelect=4 LoadFlightMenu=No LoadPlanMenu=No PauseAfterCrash=No BrakeReleaseThreshold=75 SaveDataWithFlights=No ZapSound=firework ShortAircraftNameOk=Substring UseProfiles=Yes EnableMouseLook=No DelayedMouseLookZoom=No AxesWrongRange=No TCASid=Flight TCASrange=40 AxisCalibration=No DirectAxesToCalibs=No ShowMultilineWindow=Yes SuppressSingleline=No SuppressMultilineFS=No AxisIntercepts=No DontResetAxes=No InitDelay=0 GetNearestAirports=No OOMcheck=Yes WeatherReadFactor=2 WeatherRewriteSeconds=1 CustomWeatherModify=No SimConnectStallTime=1 InitialStallTime=10 NormalStallTime=1 LuaRerunDelay=66 Console=No FSVersionUsed="Lockheed Martin® Prepar3D® v2",2.4.11570.0 SimConnectUsed= [JoyNames] AutoAssignLetters=No 0=Saitek Pro Flight X-55 Rhino Stick 0.GUID={8E11F2C0-9446-11E4-8001-444553540000} 1=Saitek Pro Flight X-55 Rhino Throttle 1.GUID={8E11F2C0-9446-11E4-8002-444553540000} [Axes] PollInterval=10 RangeRepeatRate=10 [Buttons] PollInterval=25 ButtonRepeat=20,10 [LuaFiles] 1=BBSA330 2=rdvacarsng [AutoSave] Next=1 Interval=60 Files=10 SaveOnGround=No AutoSaveEnabled=No [GPSout] GPSoutEnabled=No [GPSout2] GPSoutEnabled=No [WideServer] WideFSenabled=Yes [Sounds] Path=G:\Prepar3D\Sound\ Device1=Primary Sound Driver Device2=SPDIF Interface (2- FiiO USB DAC-E07K) Device3=Digital Audio (S/PDIF) (High Definition Audio Device) Device4=Speakers (High Definition Audio Device)
  4. Thanks Paul! I was able to figure it out, and succesfully was able to get the correct taxi light value I need. If anyone else needs it, the LUA script is quite easy: while 1 do taxi = ipc.readLvar("L:AB_TAXI_LT") if taxi == nil then break end ipc.writeUB(0x66C9,taxi) ipc.sleep(100); end
  5. Hello Paul, Thanks you very much for the info. I think I'll go with writing to offsets to keep consistency across my application. I'll see what I can get done and have a chat with Pete if necessary for the offsets.
  6. Hello Paul, How would you recommend I read the values in my application from the LUA script that gets the LVars? I believe there is no offset available to just read whatever LUA outputs, right?
  7. Hello Paul, Thanks for the information. I guess I will have to look up what Aerosoft can offer me in terms of SDK. Other aircraft, probably will just have to make exceptions for it. In terms of my declaration for the 030C offset... private readonly Offset<int> _landingRate = new Offset<int>(0x030C); I am pretty sure that's alright. Thanks for the information on the landing rate, that can explain the strange behaviour. I will probably indeed have to make my own logic. I might post it here if I can make it work!
  8. I am currently using Paul Henty's .NET client DLL. I have multiple users reporting two main issues with the data: - Taxi lights on Aerosoft's AXE. Probably because of the 3-state taxi light switch, when the taxi light is in the TO position, it is still registered "on" (which is true technically, but not really useful if you are trying to figure out if the nose light is on). - Landing rate. This seems to be quite inconsistent, and sometimes even over the top with landing rates above 1000 fpm. If you have any info on either of these, if they are known, if they're are fixable, that would be awesome. Thanks! :)
  9. Hi Paul, Sorry for the late reply. Thanks for the information! I will look into it further. Edit: also, it seems like Makerwys is not supplied with FSUIPC (at least, not when I installed it). Is this correct, and if so, am I allowed to package it with my application?
  10. Thanks for the information! I would like to run the MakeRunways utility, problem for me is personally: I am working on ACARS software for a VA, and so this is a distributed program... So I would have to ask my users to run the utility before they run the ACARS software.
  11. I've read through the docs, and I see there is a ground type offset - but it's not exactly what I need. Is there a way to specifically check if a plane is on a taxiway or if he is on a runway?
