Problems FS2004


Recommended Posts

I have a registered copy of FSUIPC with FS2004, I have ticked cockpit rezising and moving but my cockpit still moves around in the 2D panel. Also keep FS sync with PC time doesnt work any ideas please.

On the first point, did you see the important note in the documentation?

NOTE: This option does not work if you have your Windows’ Display Properties set to “show window contents while dragging”, in the list of options in the Effects tab. FSUIPC then has no chance to prevent the re-draw

On the latter point, the only time sync FSUIPC offers is to keep the seconds number in line with FS's. Any minutes or hours difference is not corrected. So, unless you go into menus, or pause, or use different Sim Rates, it should stay in time, but not otherwise. But once it's a minute out, it stays a minute out and so on. It only stops the annoying gradual drift whilst flying normally.

This, also, is documented:

It just synchronises the seconds values with that of your PC’s system clock.

If you want a more comprehensive time synchronisation you need something like Joshua Robertson's "FSRealTime" program. That's what I use.

Can you confirm that if you tick "Cockpit Resizing & Moving", it will mean that any other gauge you open eg GPS will also be locked and you will be unable to move it. I often use SHIFT + Number Key to get up various gauges and then move them into different positions where I can read them or they don't obscure the "view" When I checked the above, I couldn't move them into a different position.

Just curious

Yes. That is what it is for. Set everything up the way you want it, save the flight, then apply the lock.

Good, shows it works! Wish I could get it working on FSX. :-(
