  1. Is there a way to get the ground elevation for a given latitude/longitude position. I need to get the current ground elevation (representing the scenery) at a given position, which is NOT my own aircraft's position and NOT the position of another AI aircraft. I know how to do it with FSX and P3d/simConnect, but need a similar function for FS9. Any hint how I can do it (if possible)?
  2. hi all I want to integrate external switches and buttons to FSX Steam to control an FSLABS A320 add-on. Therefore I bought and installed FSUIPC4.x to assign key strokes to certain FSX controls. Unfortunately the "Mouse Macro" feature seams not to work for the FSX steam edition (there is no "green pop-up confirmation" after recording the action). Any idea what is wrong with my setup? Any ideas or guidance how to solve my challenge?
  3. I have installed FSUIPC onto a W10 machine and added the following to the FSUIPC4.ini file: [Monitor] Display=4 Monitor0=0,024C,4,0 on XP it correctly displays the VAS, but on W10, the value is zero:
  4. Good afternoon, I’ve been slowly working on assigning overhead switches to switches on my throttle quads. As I don’t have LINDA, I’ve been using the List Var command. When I do this for both the Dornier 228 or B1900 by Carenado, I run into issues. I’m copying the command from the log created and placing it in a macro file. I then go back into FSX and FSUIPC. In this case, I’m using the Dornier and attempting to work one of the battery switches. This is what I have in the macro file: 1=L:ASD_DO228_SWITCH_BATT_1_METALIC=Toggle I use FSUIPC to tie the above macro command, but back in the sim the switch does not move. I have used this process with other aircraft and have had no issues. Has any else had issues with Carenado planes? Cheers, Colin Gray
  5. Hi, Suddenly I cannot change the AP settings for altitude and VS. What can possibly be wrong? I have also reinstalled it twice but with no change... All ideas are welcome Lars
  6. Rudder problems

    Members 0 13 posts LocationMontreal Canada Hy every one, I have problems with the rudder. When i am on the ground and check every things before flying, every thing is ok. The rudder is working perfectly. But as soon i am in the airs in a Airbus 321, the rudder stop responding completely. For the others airplanes like Boeing 737, Beachcraft Baron, Cessna 172 SP and the Havilland Beaver, the rudder move just a little bit to the left or to the right. I have look in the joysticks calibration but every thing seem normal. I have uncheck automatic rudder, but it has not not changed. I have tried to use the keyboard but it does not help.I also desinstall and reinstall FSX. But still have the problems. I don't know what to do. Some boday can help me? Jacques
  7. Hi everyone, I need some help with a problem with Super Traffic Board. I installed the progroamm without any problems. When I started the FSX and STB3, I saw that the default traffic (Pacifica, Orbit, World Travel,...) is visibel at the timetable (have a look at the picture down). Iam using WOAI. Does anybody know to fix this problem? Much greetings for answers! Martin
  8. I just bought a $400.00 thrustmaster HOTAS Warthog joystick and throttle. I thought I had made a correct purchase, but it seems that I actually bought a couple of paper weights. I spent money on FSUIPC, and Addit Pro. I have a $20.00 joystick that I can just hook via USB and it just works... Hotas stuff plugged in, Windows sees and calibrates them both, but as soon as I open FSX, nothing is displayed in the controllers box. If anyone knows about how to get this bleeping thing working in FSX, or am I going to have to buy another yoke and throttle quadrant for FSX? Sorry for the rant, but I have been trying for 2 weeks to get this to work.... EllisDee ain"t free...
  9. I have just discovered I bought the wrong version of the FSUIP software. I have the one for P3DV4, and I need one for FSX se. Is there a way to "swap" my key purchase? Ellis Dee ain't free....
  10. FSUIPC version 4972 Hi, I am trying to write to a local variable in CaptainSim's C130 in fsx using a Lua file. There's a switch in the VC that I want to automate. The FSUIPC log shows an error for this action: ipc.writeLVar("L:pRpm1ButtonPos",dummy) To make sure the variable exists I added a ReadLvar to the code. C130.lua 109 function rpmLow() 110 state=ipc.readLvar("L:pRpm1ButtonPos") 111 ipc.display("RPM: "..state,1) 112 dummy=1 113 ipc.writeLVar("L:pRpm1ButtonPos",dummy) 114 end 141 event.button("D", 5, 1, "rpmLow") The read works, the result 1 or 0 is showing in the display window according to the position of the switch in the virtual cockpit. Log: I don't understand what the "nil value' means here. How can I fix this? Thanks.
  11. I have been away from flight sim for a few months and seem to have lost the magic of route creation. I am using FSC 9.6 rev 7 on a win 10 machine using FSX-SE, Airac 1701, and have both High Alt and Low Alt selected on the flight plan box and trying to work out where my 'logic' is wrong with creating a airway route...eg: YBBN SMOKA Y177 CS YBCS. The route between Brisbane(YBBN) and Cairns (CS - Intersection) has an airway (Y177) that connects the two though many intersections etc. When I input the flight route mentioned earlier, and select OK, it always removes the Y177 airway. However, when I use the High Alt Plan button at the top of the page, it creates a high alt plan using several airways (it chose not to use Y177) so the feature works perfectly, just me not doing it correctly. I used to be able to do this before ok, so, I have omitted some configuration or some other dumb error on my part. And I have RTFM to the best of my understanding..... Any comments Umberto would be appreciated. Geoff
  12. now that the Qualitywings 787 is out i am doing some flying in it and i noticed that my program is not recognizing the 787 as an aircraft... 'offset Dim aircraftType As Offset(Of String) = New FSUIPC.Offset(Of String)("AircraftType", &H3500, 24) ' and under a timer Try FSUIPCConnection.Process("AircraftType") lblAircraft.Text = aircraftType.Value Catch ex As Exception MessageBox.Show(ex.Message, AppTitle, MessageBoxButtons.OK, MessageBoxIcon.Error) End Try http://prntscr.com/gxet22
  13. Embraer 175/195 Ejets V2 - weather radar issues

    I know this has been asked before, but i've been through everything I've found on this forum and others to no avail! I'm using Win7 Ultimate and FSX:SE. I have the full version of the EJets V2 purchased from Just Flight (not the neutered steam DLC version). I have the latest version of FSUIPC for FSX installed, although it is unregistered. The weather radar just doesn't work. I've made sure it's enabled in the config tool. MFD is set to Map mode. Weather scheme is set to 'Stormy Weather', so there should definitely be something for it to pick up! I've tried turning it on in both the 2D cockpit first and the VC. Nothing. Not even the test pattern! I've checked my FSX.cfg and the gauge is definitely listed in the Trusted section. Any ideas anyone? As far as I can see, it should be working!
  14. Me and my team are trying to install FSUIPC4 to work with FSX, but every time we try to Run FSUIPC4 (attached screenshot), FSX crashes. We have a German version of FSX, could this be causing the crash? Do we need to be running an English version of FSX? Any help is greatly appreciated!! :)
  15. Hello guys, is there anyone who uses FSUIPC4 SDK on LAZARUS platform? Lazarus is FREE Pascal IDE (it is GNU), looking nice, easy to develop, but trying to port FSUIPC4 SDK, I have encountered several points which keep me off using it with [microchip_HW <=> Lazarus <=> FSUIPC4 <=> FSX] I have tried to use FSUIPC SDK for Delphi, but altough the Lazarus offers tools for converting the Deplhi project into Lazarus one, there are still features e.g. GlobalAddAtom, GlobalDeleteAtom, etc. (there is whole list of "Identifier not found" errors) which seem to remain in the code (these seem to be declared e.g. in FSUIPC.bas). As I have never programmed in Delphi, this becomes challenging (but surely not something which couldn't be sorted out after some investigation). I guess if I spend more time with it, I'll probably make a new library for Lazarus<=>FSUIPC, but if there is someone who has already done this step, or made some other part of FSUIPC SDK working in Lazarus environment, it might save me much effort. note: or I'll go for Visual Studio (VB or C++) - still considering programming effort - I used to program in Pascal many years ago, that's why it attracted my attention Thanks, Lubor
  16. please any solution for this error message "Failed to read myairportsshort.dat" thanks
  17. Hi Peter, I have been using registered FSUIPC and particularly Autosave for years with advanced aircraft with no problems other than occasional micropauses (so I increased the time between saves to 300 seconds). For the last week or so I have had many long pauses that appear to accompany autosaves (by looking at the time on the saved file during a pause). This is happening with the PMDG 737/NGX, PMDG 777, and Level-D 767. Toward the end of the flight the pauses seem to become longer. I know you discourage using Autosave with these aircraft, but I have been flying them for a long time with no problem until recently. I use FSX Steam, in a single install, but I used to have a dual install. The problem may coincide with uninstalling the dual install and then installing Steam alone (note: all the Steam folders now have their normal FSX names and the files are saved to them as they should be). Both the current and previous installations of Steam were/are on my D: drive, which is a 500GB SSD. But the files are saved on C: which is a 500GB normal hard drive. I defragged C: and ran chkdsk on it (no errors found) but the problem didn't go away. I have the following addons: Active Sky Next and fullscreen.ahk (I always run in windowed mode -- this addon converts the appearance to full screen). I have other addons, but the problem happens when they are not running, and probably happens without ASN. I have FSUIPC version 4.966c. The problem went away for a few flights when I updated from a previous version (not sure which, but I update fairly frequently) but now it's back. I also noticed that SimConnectStallTime was set to 20 after the most recent update (but it might have been there earlier). I didn't do this as I only found out about this setting a day or so ago by reading posts in your forum. Setting it back to 1 didn't fix the problem. I use FSUIPC for ailerons, elevators, rudder and throttles on all the above aircraft and the joystick axes are disabled for these functions in FSX. As a side note, recently there have been occasional deletions/rebuilding of the controls.xml file and I have to restore it from a backup. System is Windows 7 64, I7-200 series, NVidia 560M, 6GB memory, Qosmio laptop. Thanks very much, Mike
  18. Hi! I installed yesterday the Microsoft Flight Simulator Stream Edition (v10.0.62607.0), and the FSUIPC v4.966c not work. I get the following error message. What can I do? I'm new on forum, sorry, if that was question. Greeting from Hungary!
  19. FSX ERJ 145 Throttles Stuck ?

    Why do the throttles on the erj 145 get stuck on idle when you bring them back to idle? I im using an xbox controller and FSX Steam Edition any suggestions it only happens when im on the ground. i forgot to mention the Gust Lock is removed when it gets stuck.
  20. Hello,I have been using the FSXWX weather engine for quite some time now but this uses FSUIPC4. Now FSUIPC4 decided to give me the following error: http://prntscr.com/ed0eeq.

  21. Hello Pete, I don't recall ever having a problem with my registered version of your fine program. However, since installing the latest version (after installing the new PMDG 747 version 3), it's been hit or miss with FSX getting me past the error message that I have attached. I had been clicking "Yes" when I get the message. Sometimes it would take me into FSX, other times not. My sim worked fine, until I installed this last version. I've attached a copy of the error message screen. My Windows Log pertaining to the error and my add-ons is provided below. (I hope I've included enough information. If not, I'm sure you'll let me know!) Thanks for your help - and an otherwise indispensable program for online flying!

  22. I have been trying to create a flight from YMML to YMHB.....YMML SUNTI H169 CLARK W519 BEGED [star to be inserted later] YMHB I can get the plan to accept SUNTI H169 to CLARK, but, then not able to using the W519 as far as BEGED. I notice that CLARK does not indicate H169?, yet accepts SYNOT-CLARK...Is this saying one way only? Anyway, I am sure I must have my logic incorrect as to the rules joining INT, FIX etc between jetways as it pops up now and again and I usually work my way around the issue, never understanding what I am doing wrong.. Regards Geoff
  23. First of all, I downloaded and installed the module, but it seems as if it does "nothing" at all. (I planned to start with the unregistered version because I thought this would be a kind of time/function limited demo, but I cannot see what it does at all.) I'd like to know how I can configure FSUIPC (do I need the registered version for this?) to send GPS data from FSX to Bluetooth. Ok, I understood, it should be "to a COM port", but I cannot see anything about that. Is there a HOWTO or a description on that?
  24. Hello, for nearly one proud week I try to install the Mytraffic6. I installed with guidance and I don´t understand why the FSX doesnt find the airplanes. The last idea is to copy the airplanes into the simobjects Folder ?!
  25. Hello, I would buy 737 Pilot In Command (FSX only) Windows 7 and Vista version, but do not know if it will work properly on my system: FSX Steam edition DX10 Mode (fixer) Windows 10 Advise someone please? Thank you!
