Rather Odd Behavior


Recommended Posts

Hi Pete

Something odd. My application reads and writes aircraft location information. I have the DeLuxe Edition of FSX installed and FSUIPC4 as downloaded today. It is registered.

My program has a freeware key from you. In unregistered mode I can move the aircraft to a new location from my application i.e. write lat, lon and alt. It works fine exactly the same as with FS9.

In registered mode the write do not have any effect and the plane is not moved. Make the program unregistered by moving out the key and the plane can be moved again.

Here is the log when in registered mode. You can see the writes to 0560, 0568 and 0574 but they are not having any effect. The freeware key is logged but I have made a continuation log so it does not show.

My program has a freeware key from you. In unregistered mode I can move the aircraft to a new location from my application i.e. write lat, lon and alt. It works fine exactly the same as with FS9.

Yes, I have just discovered that SimMarket, with their new super-fast automated system, have been issuing keys with a long-term expiry date which FSUIPC4 finds invalid. It makes the keys look like pirated ones, and this has rather unpredictable results.

I have got SimMarket to remove their invalid expiry date (normally there is none in any case), and I am working now on a small update to FSUIPC4 to "fix" it for the invalid values in the many keys issued so far.

Please watch out for an announcement here later.

Regards,

Pete
