  1. Hey guys, I need some help with my lua script which reads a FSUIPC offset. Its not working as intended and I'm not sure why Essential I need a message to be displayed when I switch the Landing Lights ON. But I only want this to happen when I am airborne, not on the ground. To check this I read the FSUIPC offset 0366 to see if the plane is airborne. However I must have coded the ipc.readSW(offset) incorrectly, because the wrong message is being displayed even when I am on the ground. Here is the code: function runMessage(event, param) local gnd = ipc.readSW(0366) if (gnd == 1) then ipc.display("you are on the ground and the offset was read correctly", 1, 0 ) return end if (gnd == 0) then ipc.display("Landing Lights ON: .. message here", 1, 0 ) return end end event.control(66059, "runMessage") -- lights on Thanks
  2. I want to report a bug with FSUIPC version 4.962 on Prepar3D v3.4 + HF3 The traffic limiter option interferes with the external lights of the new PMDG 747 v3 How to reproduce: Make sure setting are set to display air traffic and the traffic limiter is set to off (i.e 0) Load up 747 sitting on a runway at any airport at night (I tested at EGLL) Turn on the landing lights Now open FSUIPC and set the traffic limit to a number instead of zero (I set it at 100) After clicking okay the landing-lights of the PMDG no longer illuminate the ground, even though the switch is 'on' ?? Toggle the switch several times eventually restores the external lights, but sometimes it never comes back on? I'm sure this is a FSUIPC bug and not a PMDG one, because disabling FSUIPC from the dll.xml file fixes the problem completely.... I noticed some people on the PMDG forum were complaining of poor external lighting on the 747, maybe this is linked? Thanks
  3. I'm having trouble using the offset 0D0C for the lights. I can use the offset 028C for the landing lights but I would like to separate the other lights (0281 strobe and beacon) and (0280 for panel, nav taxi). The problem for me is I cant figure out how to manipulate the bits in offset 0D0C. any help with this would be much appreciated. An example of how to turn on only one of the light switches using offset 0D0C would go a long way to helping me. Thanks in advance or any help. when I read offset 0D0C and print results I get: '\xff\x03' if I use .encode('hex') on the return value and print result I get ff03. I can write that to the offset and it will work all the lights. But as I said before I would like to use the lights independently.
  4. I have the E-Jets 2 software installed, but have some faults with all the lighting textures for all aircraft. 1. Some of the aircraft such as the house textures for the 195 do not have complete lighting textures at all. 2. My main concern at the moment is that even if I create the textures for the 195 lighting and they look correct on the plane, the logo and landing lights will not switch on and off with the 2D or VC cockpit switches - they remain on all the time. 3. The 190 and 175 roll-out liveries do not have any landing lights for the fuselage. 4. They do have the logo light textures, but they do not switch on or off. 5 The 170 seems to have all the textures but again landing lights and logo lights are constantly on. 6. The two left doors and the front cargo door are much lighter than the surrounding fuselage at night and I have not found a solution to that problem yet. 7. Is there a fix for any or all of these problems? Regards, ozzieblr
