FSUIPC4 in FSX causing huge FPS hit


Recommended Posts

Merry Christmas all and yes I got FSX for christmas. At this stage Im not prepared to wipe FS9 off my hard drive just yet. From reading the threads I see that there have been some problems with FSX and FSUIPC4. I have one also that seems a little different. After doing a flawless install of FSX I then installed FSUIPC4 again with no problems. I checked the directory and sure enough saw the new modules folder in FSX placed there by the FSUIPC4 install. I use activesky and upgraded to version 6.5 using default settings. I launched activesky and then FSX and the 2 programs communicated with each other perfectly. However I noted a huge reduction in my frame rate average going from 20 to 3 fps. I then closed both programs and fired up FSX by itself and went to same start location that I was consisting getting 20 fps and again I was still getting an average of 3 fps. I physically removed the modules folder from FSX and then started FSX again and voila I had my 20 FPS back again at the same location. I then shut down my anitvirus and firewall software and put the module folder back in FSX and the result was 3 FPS again with nothing else running. I am not using any startup programs like autostart and at this point I dont know what else to try. The simconnect seems to be working but something is causing the process to go to a crawl. What I cant understand is that no addon programs are running and still I get the slowdown just by having the module folder in FSX

Any suggestions are most appreciated.

I see that there have been some problems with FSX and FSUIPC4.

Erunfair I think to pick out FSUIPC4 specifically. There are problems with FSX and pretty much any and all add-ons at present.

I noted a huge reduction in my frame rate average going from 20 to 3 fps.

Three things:

1. Is the weather the same without ActiveSky as with? You need to check whether it is simply the numbers of clous levels and extra weather which is hitting the performance.

2. What about FSUIPC4 without ActiveSky? There is currently a known overhead, usually about 10-15%, from just installing FSUIPC4 -- this is part of the current SimConnect performance problem we are hoping MS are working on. Some have reported as much as 40% but I am pretty sure these are down to anti-virus and other programs like that which, although deactivated, still have inefficient hooks embedded in the TCP/IP path.

3. If all these are running on the same PC, are you sure it isn't merely that ActiveSky and FSX represent just too much load on your PC, with the settings you havve in FSX?

What I cant understand is that no addon programs are running and still I get the slowdown just by having the module folder in FSX

Sorr,y you mean *without* ActiveSky running? If so, then I can only suggest trying to deinstall both your firewall and anti-virus program, as a test. Just deactivating sometimes doesn't help -- it seems to varyt depending on the program. Also check the firewall hints provided by Microsoft.

Thanks for the quick responce. I dont mean to pick on FSUIPC4 however I felt the need to bring my experience to your attention in hopes of finding a solution. The point of my post was to let you know that without any addons just installing FSUIPC4 caused my FSX performance to go from 20 FPS average to around 3-4 FPS average. This is consistant no matter where I start up from. It may very well be a FSX microsoft problem I dont know. All I know is that unless a solution is found I wont be able to use FSUIPC4 or any addons. For your info I have Mcafee install version 2007.

I have done some testing and I have some results for you that you may find interesting.

On the first test FSUIPC4 was installed in FSX and Mcafee Total protection 2007 installed. Activesky version 6.5 also installed and activated. Location on all tests the same.

********* FSUIPC Log file closed ***********

All 3 tests produced the same frame rate experience of 4-5 FPS. It did not seem to matter if I had Mcafee's installed or not the results were the same. It also didnt seem to matter whether I was using an addon or not .With Mcafee installed or uninstalled and FSUIPC4 Module folder removed from FSX and using real weather of overcast and snow at the location I was at, I consistantly got in the 20 FPS range. As soon as I added the module folder back into FSX I experienced the 4-5 FPS range.

In test 2 FSX and activesky did communicate with each other and the weather was set by activesky using FSX graphics.

I hope the above print outs help you figure out what is going on here.

Thanks

Unfortunately not. There's really nothing helpful there, other that to show that SimConnect is simply and definitely not working correctly.

McAfee is known to cause severe problems indeed with SimConnect, even when deactivated. I have even heard of cases where an uninstall did not remove all its hooks and still gave problems until the person concerned re-installed Windows.

Also, please first try repairing SimConnect. See the FSX Help announcement at the top of the Forum.

If nothing helps, please try to get a SimConnect Log, also as described in that FSX Help announcement. Try to keep it sohrt -- i.e. a few minutes of 4 fps, once things settle. If the log is large (and it might be), please ZIP it an send to me at petedowson@btconnect.com.

Please colloect all the information you are accumulating and be prepared to submit it to Microsoft via tell_fs@microsoft.com. It may all help raise these problems to the top of the list in the hoped-for FSX bug fix release.

Regards

Pete

Once again thanks for the assist on this one. I did as you suggested and I removed the simconnect file from windows and ran the repair utility for FSX. I repeated the steps that I have done all before this and viola I now have fps rates in the 20 range again. The reinstall seems to have done the trick. I did try to get a log but it did not work for the simconnect.

Many thanks

Don :)

Another faulty SimConnect install, then. Seems to happen quite a lot.

Happy New Year,

Pete
