  1. No Weather Radar EJets P3Dv4

    Alex, I’m not sure if you are speaking on behalf of the company, I asked if FeelThere was aware of HiFi SIM ActiveSky weather radar integration API which using simple coding will add a weather radar into any aircraft with a little work. Looking forward to a reply from FeelThere. Robert
  2. No Weather Radar EJets P3Dv4

    Hi fellas, Thanks for making one of my favorite commuter jets available for P3Dv4, I've really been missing her. I understand that work was done primarily to allow for installation into the latest sim, was the weather radar dropped due to technical issues? I do know that HiFi's ActiveSky does have an API SDK that allows for integration of their weather onto the horizontal display within the EJets VC while ActiveSky is running. PMDG uses their API to provide realistic weather. Just wondering if you knew about it? Robert
  3. EMB v2 for P3D4

    Someone did a VC upgrade, do a search for EJets VC Upgrade. I hope that FeelThere is working on completely new EJets package using the SDK for Prepar3D v4.
  4. No, nothing recognizes them, and it may have very well been that way all along. I have notes on mostly everything for the sim regarding FSUIPC, I do not have any notes for the CH throttle. There's always a workaround with FSUIPC so I am not too worried. You've done a great job Pete. Robert
  5. Depressing below the detent the lever axis does not present itself as a button within the sim. The CH throttle quadrant's 6 levers only register as axis, the switches on the front face of the CH throttle quadrant has 6 switches and they are the only ones that register as buttons. You are right about the Saitek throttle and that is why I got confused as I used to own Saitek hardware. That answers my question. Thanks for your reply. Robert
  6. Pete, When I pull the CH Throttle Quadrant lever "x-axis" into the detent (idle) and continue down to where the throttle lever rests below the detent the FSUIPC "Buttons and Switches" does not register it as a button. The actual buttons and switches on the face of the throttle quadrant do register on the "Buttons and Switches" tab. I have since found that I can assign reverse axis using the "Joystick Calibration" tab but I was wondering if I was mistaken in thinking the lever when resting below the detent used to be recognized as a button where one would assign it using "Select for FS control" then assigning the commands of Throttle Decr and Throttle Cut in the 2 dropdown menu's below. I've been busy reinstalling my addons and hardware into v4.1 and I might be completely off here. Using FSUIPC 5.121b, CH Throttle Quadrant (without CH Manager Control) calibrated in Windows 10 only. Controls, axis and calibration are disabled in Prepar3D v4.1. Thank you, Robert
  7. Simmarket if you want the licensed (paid) version.
  8. Thanks Pete. In all the years of using FSUIPC and WideFS back in the days of FS9 this is the first time I had encountered any issue. I'd like to thank you for all your hard work and diligence in keeping your product working through all the changes that have taken place over the many years. If and when you release FSUIPC5 I will be happy to once again support you and your endeavors. Thanks again for making flight simulation such a wonderful pastime for me. Sincerely, Robert **EDIT** Apparently the crashes are being experienced with the new PMDG 747, the user indicated that he does not have FSUIPC installed. I think it has more to do now with the P3D HF3 update.
  9. Hi Pete, FSUIPC 4.961 Prepar3D v3.4.22.19868 I have had an incredibly smooth running system, hardly ever a crash. The issue started this evening after updating the FSLabs A320 so it could run on Prepar3D HF3. I experienced the same startup issue with a black screen, verifying that Prepar3D was running in task manager. (Using 11% CPU resources). I deleted the FSUIPC4.DLL and ran Prepar3D as admin and the sim started up, I then ran FSUIPC v4.961 install routine and the FSUIPC4.DLL is back in the modules folder and Prepar3D successfully started. I have verified that there aren't any FSUIPC entries in the Win10 event viewer. Hope this provides a little help. Regards, Robert
  10. Updated E-Jets V3 In The Future?

    Put me down for both, please do update VC textures though. The aircraft were a dream to fly. Rob
  11. Mouse view for FSUIPC?

    Hi Pete, You have come through once again! I was having a terrible time after I lost the POV/Hat view and "mouse look" after updating Prepar3D to v3.4, that is until FSUIPC came to the rescue. Using the search option I was able to find the following information: I was able to assign the POV/Hat View in the Axis assignments tab in FSUIPC Axis Assignment->Send to FS as normal axis->Pan View (in dropdown menu) Mouse + spacebar to pan has also been enabled by selecting "Mouse Look" in the Miscellaneous tab of FSUIPC options Since using FSUIPC for years I have unchecked controllers in the P3D controls menu, the simple view commands have always worked until now. Thanks again for your great application, it has made my FS experience so wonderful. Cheers, Rob
  12. Learned something new today Pete, long time user of FSUIPC registered version... Thanks again as always. Robert
  13. You bet! http://www.prepar3d.com/news/2015/09/113061/
  14. Pete's Cockpit

    Hi Pete, I am thoroughly impressed with the 737 cockpit you have built and the guys did an outstanding job of handling her. What a treat to watch, thanks very much. Robert Vancouver, BC
  15. I managed to make the Airbus X throttle reverse using FSUIPC. All the axis have been removed from the FSX Controls and are set using FSUIPC. This can be set as a single axis throttle or multiple throttle's, your choice. Once in the FSUIPC UI press Rescan and move your throttle axis, you should see the IN/OUT values change from -16384 to 16384. As I have 2 types of Airbus Addons I have selected "Profile Specific" and named it Aerosoft Airbus A32X. Remember to set "Type of action required" to "Send direct to FSUIPC calibration" selecting "Throttle" as your action. For multiple throttles you will select Throttle_1 etc. Next I have set the range number for this action as #1 and placed a check-mark in the UP/Down boxes and pressed the From/To buttons at each end of the axis accordingly. For "Control sent when range entered" I placed a check-mark and selected "Axis Throttle Set" and placed the corresponding "Parameter" #65675 below it. Okay that part is done, now for the reversers. Next I set the second range number for the reversers by pressing the up arrow where the number 1 that was set above has now changed to a #2 and I placed a check-mark beside the Down box. Again pressing the From/To buttons starting at the lower end of the axis pressing "From" ending partway up and pressing "To." You will only have to change the value slightly as you can see from the image below, your choice. Next for "Control sent when range entered" I placed a check-mark and selected "Throttle Decr" and placed the corresponding "Parameter" 65602, placed a check-mark in :Control to repeat whilst in range" and then a third check-mark and "Control sent when range entered" with the command "Throttle Cut" with the "Parameter" 65604. Now you can simply press OK and return to the sim to see that you now have a reverser on your Aerosoft Airbus X or you may select the "Joystick Calibration Tab" and place a check-mark beside "Profile Specific" which will use the title you gave it on the Axis Assignment tab. I am looking into how to make the assignments for all the Aerosoft Airbus models without having to access the FSUIPC UI each time you change to another Aerosoft Airbus. It will be handy if one flies both the Aerosoft and Blackbox addons.
