Buy Peter Dowson FSUIPC V3?


Recommended Posts

I INSTALLED FDC LIVE COCKPIT V3 IN MS2004 AND GOT THE MESAGE: FS2004 DETECTED IS NOT COMPATABLE WITH THIS VERSION OF FSUIPC. IT IS BUILD 9.01.40901... YOU NEED THE CORRECT VERSION. THE BUILD SHOULD BE 9.00.30612. SO DO I NEED TO BUY FSUIPC V3? THIS IS THE FIRST TIME I HAVE EVER TRYED TO ADD ON A PROGRAM TO FS2004. IF I NEED TO ADD V3 THEN ANY HELP ON HOW I GO ABOUT DOING THAT WILL BE GREAT. I AM NOT VERY COMPUTER KNOWLEDGEABLE. I WAS REALLY EXPECTING FDC V3 TO JUST LOAD AND RUN. THANKS

First, could you find the "Caps Lock" key on your keyboard and turn it off, please. Messages all in capitals are very difficult to read and also come over as "SHOUTING".

You need to get a later version of FSUIPC -- go to http://www.schiratti.com/dowson. The version you have is suitable for the original release of FS2004 and cannot work with the FS9.1 update.

It certainly should do. It doesn't because they have not re-packaged it with a later FSUIPC since the FS2004 update came out. There's no way I can make software compatible with releases before I know about them. You should really complain to your FDC supplier.

Regards,

Pete

Hi,

Maybe not buy, but at least install the latest version of FSUIPC. For that go here:

http://www.schiratti.com/dowson.html

You will download a zip file. Open that file and copy just the FSUIPC.dll and paste it into your FS04/Modules folder. If asked to overwrite answer Yes. Then you should be good to go.

FYI, typing in ALL CAPS in a forum amounts to screaming. Please turn off the caps lock!

Edit: Sorry for almost the double post!

Early versions of FDC version 3.0 certainly did have an older version of FSUIPC in the installer but Aerosoft corrected that and the current download and CD versions... for many months now... certainly do (to the best of my knowledge) have a more recent one. However, there are always new versions of FSUIPC being released by Peter so it's always best to ensure you have the most recent version anyway.

Ah, thanks very much for the clarification, Dave. This customer must have got some old stock! ;-)

Best wishes for Christmas!

Best wishes to you too Pete. I hope you'll be giving your fingers a little rest for a few days or do you suffer from withdrawal symptoms? :wink:

I have to leave computers switched off for several days, from when guests/relatives start arriving till most are gone, else I'm in really BIG trouble!

However. I am hoping to get some flying for fun in (as opposed to most of my flights which are testing testing, looking for the little details that are wrong, and so on). My main 737NG and Piper Arrow III sim setups are in a separate room upstairs, away from my development, testing and Internet/support systems, so I think I can safely partition the two. To alleviate the "ignoring guests" complaints which may arise, I can take a copilot and jump seat passnger on the 737 trips whilst letting another guest crash the Piper, as they inevitably do! ;-)

I have a new Saitek Pro Yoke and Throttle system that works very well with all the Keystrokes I need programmed through their SST programming software. The X and Y axes are the only things programmed to work thru the FS 2004 or FSX software, and even though the Sautek Yoke and Throttle work flawlessly in MS Windows XP Professional's Control Center, when controlled thru FS Sim software the Yoke X and Y axes work, but no matter how I set the Sensitivities or Nulls, all I can get is either 0 or 100%, nothing smooth in between.

I downloaded and purchased registration for FSUIPC 3 for FS9 and FSUIPC4 for FSX along with the proper WideFS software They are both installed and are functional. I have read through all the user manual has to say about Axis assignments and Axis calibrations, but after doing it the way it looks like I'm supposed to, saving it thru FSUIPC only, nothing neither Ailerons nor elevators function at all, like the yoke isn't even plugged in.

I know I'm just doing something dumb, but would you please tell me simply steps to go thru to make sure what I am trying to do will be saved so I can then play with the slopes to get the sensitivity I'm looking for?

Thanks, I know your FSUIPC program is just the answer for what I'm trying to do, but all I seem to do with the Saitek is fly to the moon or groung, ans this rather suddenly.

Soooooo, please help?

Use FS9 / FSX assignments. Get everything working in FS BEFORE even looking at FSUIPC. Only use FSUIPC to do final calibrations once everything you've assigned in FS works.

Don't use FSUIPC axis assignments without good reason, and most certainly not before you've got your hardware sorted out and you know what you are doing. The axis assignments were a much later addition to FSUIPC and intended for cockpit builders and ambitious projects where the FS assignments just didn't cut it. Start simple.

BTW why have you added your message to a two-year old thread and not created a fresh one? It was very confusing reading through such old messages trying to make some sense out of your strangely uninformative title "Buy Peter Dowson FSUIPC V3?". Please, for new questions start your own thread in future.

I am away from tonight (Friday) until June 10th.

Pete, sorry about the double post and posting to an old thread. I had just registered on this forum and activated. I was trying to find out how to post, and must have posted twice in error, the subject line was a learning mistake on my part. Sorry, it won't happen again.

Have a pleasant time off till the 10th, and hope you get in some good flying time for fun.

Thanks,

Harvey Morgan

Thanks -- apart from flying to Ljubljana and back from Belgrade, there's no personal flying time this trip -- it's all for my other hobby, steam railways! ;-)

I hope you sort out your axis connection problems. There are many other Saitek users here so I'm sure you'll get some help whilst I'm away -- but post your questions in a new thread and make the subject title attractive to those who might know the answers, like "Problems with Saitek yoke and quadrant".

Regards

Pete
