  1. Guten TaG; ich versuche einen Flugplan herzustellen,- ich habe die neueste Version 10.0, aber selbst nach dem deutschen Manual hatte ich ziemliche Schwierigkeiten, vielleicht ist das Manual noch für die älteren Versionen? - Jedenfalls klappte es nicht, den Flugplan in den FSX zu bekommen, also ihn zu koppeln. Oben in der Leiste "GPS" und dann erschien eine Meldung: Msg no process response. Was nun? Wie kriege ich überhaupt den Flugplan in den FSx, so das ich in unter Flugplan-Laden aufrufen kann? Denn unter Speichern und Kreuzchen beim FSX erschien er im FSX-Flugplan nicht. über eine Antwort würde ich mich sehr freuen
  2. Summary: STB Client V3.6.2018.20201 is a replacement product for STB V3.2. Obtain the setup program from your original place of purchase (contact me for assistance if you purchased from Flight1). STB Data Server V3.6.2018.14700 is required on the FSX computer when using STB on a separate computer to FSX, and also replaces earlier versions. Download the combined setup and update program from here: http://bit.ly/2OWJ8ZA I've produced a new version of STB for FSX and FSX Steam Edition that contains bug fixes and support for Just Flight's Traffic Global. As we are switching to a new installer framework, it's necessary to completely uninstall your current STB for FSX and then install this one. There is also a new STB data server for those of you running STB and FSX on separate computers. You will need to uninstall the old data server then install the new one also. You'll note a change in terminology here that I started with Prepar3D. The STB Client as it is now known is SuperTrafficBoard itself, which has everything you need to display a list of flights and interact with them. The STB Data Server is required on the FSX computer when using the STB Client on a separate computer. The list of changes are: ⦁ Added configuration content for Just Flight Traffic Global. ⦁ Changed the search order for logo files to make "PNG" the top priority. ⦁ Added high quality logo resizing facility. ⦁ Reset default airline logo size to 125x25. ⦁ Updated logos for a number of airlines, with more planned for future releases. First group are for Just Flight's Traffic Global. ⦁ Bug fix: When determining the width of the airline logo column, the AirlineLogoWidth setting is always used rather than column properties saved to the settings file. ⦁ Add a small margin to the airline logo width column to ensure it displays correctly. ⦁ Upgraded MakeRwys utility to V4.84. ⦁ Bug fix: Traffic BGLs that do not contain any flight plans (e.g. Traffic Global user defined BGL) caused exceptions during airport complication. ⦁ Added limited support for Flight1 UTLive including logos, airline and aircraft configuration content. See user guide for further information. ⦁ Enhance non-BGL scheduled AI presentation (e.g. UT Live) so the scheduled times are updated when the AI becomes active, improving the sort order by time. ⦁ Improved exception handling. ⦁ Flight Plan Complier Bug fix. Don't append "Scenery" to a scenery library path if it already ends with "scenery". ⦁ Inno Setup Framework for all installers. ⦁ Updated user guide. If you would like this now, please contact me with a note of your original software order. It will reach the normal distribution channels in due course, but that always takes a lot of time. Simon
  3. *** Updated 22 Aug 2018 I've updated STB with the latest content for TrafficGlobal Early Access V1.1.0.7 which covers a number of new airlines. STB will continue to deliver content through it's update mechanism from time to time as Traffic Global continues to evolve, but there may be a considerable delay before such updates are available. In the meantime importing the new TrafficGlobal content independently is very simple, please see the PDF for details. How to configure STB for Just Flight Traffic Global.pdf PS. I am indebted to my friend Dave Mould whom provided very generous amounts of time and effort to help with the Traffic Global content.

  5. Hi Pete, Can't believe after all this time I haven't used profiles. With all my lua files (30+) made for specific aircraft it was starting to become a nightmare - not any more! 👍 One thing I noticed, and was the assumption it would work, is the use of [General] ShortAircraftNameOk=Substring along with UseProfiles=Files. I have in the main .ini - [Profile.T-6 Texan] 1=A2A North American T-6 Texan RTW_9 2=A2A North American T-6 Texan RTW_5 [Profile.Bearcat] 1=F8F-2 Bearcat FSX V2 Worn OD RTWR Panel 2=Grumman F8F-2 Bearcat VF-61 RTWR Panel [Profile.SHRS] 1=22_SHRS_YFB-111A 2=17_SHRS_F-111F If I select any other SHRS, Bearcat, T-6 Texan other than what is listed specifically, the profile doesn't engage. Otherwise it works for the specific listed aircraft. Is this the way it is supposed to work? Just realized something but don't have time to test, is the following the key to it working? [Profile.T-6 Texan] 1=T-6 Texan [Profile.Bearcat] 1=Bearcat [Profile.SHRS] 1=SHRS Thanks, have a great day.. Roman EDIT -- The latter was true.... 👍👍👍😄
  6. I am trying to find out how to change the panel.cfg or whatever, so that I do not get the flickering mouse and loss of FPS. I am using a 3 monitor Eyefinity setup.
  7. Moved to Main Forum. Please ask questions related to FSUIPC always in Main Forum! 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)?
  8. Here is a Lua file that progressively apply and/or disengage brakes, adjustable in both directions, for those who only have a button for brakes. [INSTALLATION] FS closed Copy the complete code block below, paste it into an empty .txt file & rename it Smooth_Brake.Lua Place the above file in the FS/Modules folder Add the following to the [Auto] section of the FSUIPC(4).ini file - X=Lua Smooth_Brake - Where X is the next available number in the [Auto] section. (pg. 42 - FSUIPC4 for Advanced Users.pdf) Comment out ( ; ) or remove the original brake button listing in the [buttons] section. Start FS Make sure the button is not programmed through the FS assignments dialog. For a simple, non-complex assignment to the joystick button see the picture below. For a complex assignment see pg. 22 - FSUIPC4 for Advanced Users.pdf - Using something similar to this for a button press - xx=CP(-0,11)0,0,CL6:S,211 and this for release - xx=CU(-0,11)0,0,CL6:C,211. Where 6 is the numbered lua under the [LuaFiles] section of FSUIPC(4).ini in my case as an example. Use the FSUIPC facility, "Reload Buttons", from the user interface in the Buttons tab to confirm assignment. Adjust user settings to ones own liking. Assign a keyboard key to reload the file using Lua Smooth Brake as the control sent to use for reloading tuning modifications. One can use the Logging facilities in FSUIPC, using the right hand side of the dialog (FSX + only), using 0BC4, 0BC6 & 0BC8 with a type of U16, display to FS Window, to help in adjusting user settings. The above settings result in this - 1=P0,0,CL6:S,211 2=U0,0,CL6:C,211 [USAGE] Basically all this does is gradually increase (depending on settings) the brake strength as the assigned brake button is pushed. It also works in reverse, on brake disengagement. One could, for instance press the brake button for only 1 second and after that toggle the brakes on & off at a repetitive rate to keep, lets say, ~ 50% brake strength. It's much better than full on or full off. The settings as given below give around a 2.75 second span between brakes off to full brake strength. Smooth_Brake.Lua - --------------------- USER SETTINGS rate_on = 300 -- RATE AT WHICH BRAKES ARE APPLIED minimum = 3500 -- MINIMUM BRAKES ON FIRST APPLY = REQUIRED PERCENT * 16384 rate_off = 300 -- RATE AT WHICH BRAKES ARE RELEASED dis_pbrake = 1 -- DISENGAGE PARKING BRAKE ON BRAKE APPLICATION?

  9. 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?
  10. 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:
  11. 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
  12. 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

    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. 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
  15. 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...
  16. 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....
  17. 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.
  18. 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
  19. 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...

  20. 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!! :)
  21. 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
  22. please any solution for this error message "Failed to read myairportsshort.dat" thanks
  23. Folks, I am new to the forum and am trying to use Cirrus PFC yoke, rudders, power and radio console (Used with Elite) with FSX. I purchased and downloaded FSUIPC4. I can't find PFC under controls, and seem to believe I need to download drivers for it, i.e. pfcfsx.dll. Not sure if I am correct, and where to find it. If someone can point me in the right direction, It'd be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
  24. Hey, I've just bought MyTraffic2013 for my FSX Acceleration (Windows 7). After I finished the instalation, only default aircrafts, such as the Learjet or the Cessna appeared on the simulator (they only appeared when MYTRAFFIC2013 was "on" in the Scenery Library and if General Aviation display was set to more than 0). After that, I realised that my IVAO MTL also stopped working. To sum up, I guess the MyTraffic2013 and the IVAO MTL are actually running but, because of a restriction, just default aircrafts are shown. Before MyTraffic2013, I had MyTrafficX and everything was working perfectly. I look forward to hearing from you soon and thanks in advance for the help. Oliver
  25. 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
