Mini Pauses in pmRJ


Recommended Posts

Hi Pete,

Thought it best to get this into it's own post. Continued from: "FSUIPC 4.03 and GFDevFSX problem" post.

FSX

FSUIPC: 4.04

WideFS: 6.71

Here's the info you requested:

From PM option screen:

GC Frame Rate: 90

FS Data Rate: 11

FS Frame Rate: 24

WideClient Log:

********* WideClient Log [version 6.71] Class=FS98MAIN *********

Do you see any problems?

GC Frame Rate: 90

FS Data Rate: 11

FS Frame Rate: 24

Not sure why PM's program is seeing a data rate of only 11 when the FS rate is 24 and:

749237 Reception maximum: 27 frames/sec, 5837 bytes/sec

749237 Reception average whilst connected: 23 frames/sec, 3431

The WideFS frame rate AVERAGES 23, which is excellent for FSX.

I would be suspicious of the balance in the PM program between its video updating (90 fps?) and its perceived data changes (11 fps). Why on Earth is it updating the video screen 8 times more often than the data which it is displaying is seen changing (by it)?

You need to use the PM support channels to find out how to balance that a bit better I think. It looks like it is spending so much time re-drawing the same data that it isn't reading the incoming changes fast enough.

Do you see any problems?

None at all with WideFS. Over to PM now I think.

I did notice one issue when I ran PMFileChecker38. It's reporting WideServer as version .704 and WideClient 6.71 then indicating a WideServer/WideClient mismatch.

The correct numbers are 7.04 and 6.71. Is it getting the decimal point in the wrong place? I'll check that here.....

No, it certainly should see it as 7.04, not .704.

Apart from that, since the Version 6 Wideclient will always be used with the Version 6 or 7 Server, maybe Enrico needs to take the mismatch comment itself out. On FSX the Server code is part of FSUIPC4, so its number willl reflect that of its host code, even if the actual Server part doesn't change. It is too intricately related to not change the number.

Hi Pete,

While I'm waiting for Enrico to check the pmRJ, I have another question.

What controls the FS Data rate numbers that you see when pressing Cntl+O in the PMGC software?

Is that value contolled by the PMGC software or is it by-product of the network?

I have tried adding and changing some of the setting in WideServer but none have affected the number. It stays around 11.

Richard

I don't really know, but I should think it is how often the PM software sees a data update. Since that depends upon two things --

-- how often the PM software manages to read it, and

-- how often WideClient gets updates from WideServer

it isn't easy to say what controls it. The frame rate from WideServer is normally dependent solely on the FS frame rate, and usually equals it, or quite close.

Regards

Pete
