wide fs and IOCARDS and SIOC


Recommended Posts

hello

i have a 737 panel with 2 tft monitors. i use 3head2g analogic

i also have a tft for the visual

the cockpit use iocards

The problem that i have is that when sioc is not running the FPS are about 50 (with 3 TFT running smoothly), but, when i run sioc, the FPS goes to 5

Í ´m thinking that perhaps i can use another computer that i have and conected in net with wide FS.

this computer has a good graphic card and has windows vista

my head computer has a nvidia 7950GT 512MB, 3GBRAM and use windows XP core 2 duo

The question is the following:

will the FPS be bigger if i load sioc in the second computer and i use wide FS?

what software i need?

thanks a lot

Phew! What on Earth is it doing with all that processor time? That's crazy!

This is not something I'm familiar with I'm afraid. I don't know even if this "sioc" uses the FSUIPC interface. If it doesn't then it won't run on WideFS. But if it does, then, yes, it using most of the other processor won't drag WideServer down on the FS PC. However, it might not work so well if it doesn't allow WideClient to get much processing time, to handle the networked connection.

Have you asked on whatever support forum the "sioc" folks inhabit?

what software i need?

For WideFS? On FSX you need the WideClient program from the WideFS package. For FS9 and before you need the whole WideFS package. It includes documentation. It doesn't work till registered in either case, and registration is separate for WideFS7 (on FSX) and WideFS6 (on FS9 and before).

i have the 6,65 version, it will work?

Well 6.75 is the earliest version currently supported (as pointed out in the Announcements above). but WideFS has been working well now for 10 years, so I don't know how to answer that question other than "why not".

However, why not simply download the current version? It isn't that big a package you know! I expect you'd get it quicker even than posting another message here! ;-)

i had downloaded and register the last fsuipc and wide fs drivers

both computers are in the same net

i run WIDECLIENT and comunicates with fs2004 well. in fs2004 i have the text wideserver conected in the upper part of the screen.

then when i run sioc in the client computer, the iocp server and the iocp client have the same ip and this ip´s don´t much with the ip of the computer running FS2004

Waht can i do to make sioc to use the same ip than the fs2004 computer

SIOC works with fsuipc

Sorry, I have no idea what these "iocp" server and clients are, nor what "sioc" is doing with them. They certainly are not anything to do with either WideFS or FSUIPC. Can you try SIOC support, please?

i have done, and i´m waiting for reply

this is the result:

this is the result:

You showed me the WideClient log, not at all the result of seeking support from the SIOC folks. nothing here tells me anything about what this "iocp"client and server business is all about or how their IP addresses are anything to do with either WideFS or FS itself.

The wideClient log clearly shows a good connection to

130339 Trying TCP/IP host "NARDO" port 8002 ...

130339Okay, IP Address = 192.168.1.36

130370 Connection made okay!

though to be sure everything is okay you should also check the WideServer Log.

Then it looks like your "sioc" program connected 5 times:

237808 New Client Application: "sioc" (Id=4432)

305809 New Client Application: "sioc" (Id=4256)

324201 New Client Application: "sioc" (Id=4700)

785637 New Client Application: "sioc" (Id=632)

830050 New Client Application: "sioc" (Id=5216)

before you did something at the FS end to force a re-connection.

I'm sorry, but I do not know "sioc" nor have I any idea whatsoever about what you are talking about when you say "the iocp server and the iocp client have the same ip and this ip´s don´t much with the ip of the computer running FS2004". As far as I can see these things bear no relation to anything I provide or support.

sioc is a program that works with fsuipc that allows you to build a cockpit

the proble that i have is that the sioc program , when i run SIOC is conected to a ip diferent than the on in the computer that i have fs2004.

i had installed sioc in a second computer where the wideclient is installed

the conexion is ok, but SIOC don´t make it´s business

it could be because i have installed sioc in both computers?

SIOC needs to be installed (for normal use with hardware) only on the PC where your hardware is connected to.

You should in any case decide what connection to FS you would like to use. WideFS or IOCP, I would not use both at the same time!

When you like to use WideFS, I prefer, remove IOCP (FS modules folder) and make sure in SIOC ini FSUIPC is selected and IOCP is deselected!

Then you don't need any IP address because the connection works only by WideClient to FS with all is "advantage".

Hi,

 

as I said at that time SIOC needs to be installed on the PC where its hardware is connected to.

The IOCPServer.dll is not needed, delete and remove its activation in DLL.XML file in ...\AppData\Roaming\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v2\DLL.XML

And as you said already disable clients in sioc.ini file

e.g.

[************** IOCP CLIENT MODULE #0 ***************]

[ Desactivar el módulo cliente IOCP ]
[ Disable IOCP client module ] 
IOCPclient0_disable=Yes


[************** FSUIPC MODULE ***************]

[ Desabilitar lectura de las FSUIPC ]
[ FSUIPC disable mode yes/no ]
FSUipcdisable=No

[ Refresco recepción FSUIPC ]
[ FSUIPC refresh ]
FSUipcRefresh=50

So it will use FSUIPC only.
