  1. Pete, sorry to bother with this, but before I spend a grand for a secondcomputer I need to know.........using FSX and fswide, will all my hardwarethat would connect to the USB ports and hubs on the client computer run over fswide,or do I need to have the USB hardware on the primary computer.

    Lua Kill question

    Thank you Pete, that was a big help. Don
  3. I was intrigued by one of your post pete about using LUA for playing sound. I have a hardware piece made of 15 mom switches. Each switch when presse will play a announcement when pressed. Each switch has its own LUA and the Buttons are selected in FSUIP. They all work fine - sort of. (im not a programmer) but have created a script to run a sound file in a loop and will run in conjuction with a timer, and works fine. However, If I wanted to play a different announcment, I cannot stop the current sound from playing. I choose a seperate button and selected LUAKILLALL, but it does nothing- except kill the timer, but not the sound file. I'm quite confused about the luakillall, luakill (running lua script). Like I said, all the sounds will play (once) but if I select a different button, while one sound is playing, it will play the sound over the top of the running sound. Pete, I have looked over the LUA documentation and tried many variations, but not being a programmer, I'm sure I'm missing something. Any help would be most appreciated. (I know how often you chastise people for not putting enough effort in and I have spent will over a week on this one problem without success) Thank you, and we all are so appreciative of your availability in helping us with our cockpit builds. Don Each buttons Lua is just simple : ref sound.play("safety") This is the script I use for the timer and loop. ref = sound.playloop("safety") lastTimeProcessed = os.clock() function IsTimeToProcess(currentTime) span = currentTime - lastTimeProcessed if span >=30 then lastTimeProcessed = currentTime return true end return false end while true do if IsTimeToProcess(os.clock()) then sound.stop(ref) end end
  4. I just wanted to get back to you and say thanks. That did it. Thank you for replying so quickly. Don
  5. Open cockpits io cards in and outputs are correct. The Sioc script is below. When Ifly fsx is loaded, and I cause a failure in the ifly failures menu, the sixpack, nor caution lighs activate. Fsuip says it's connected. Looking at the script, and comparing it with a list of offsets in the PDF file, I cannot find an offset for 9400, 9420. Are these valid offsets. I'm using the latest (paid) fsuip. I am lost at this point as why the hardware wont connect.
