V4.20: Some checkbox settings not saved...


Recommended Posts

FSUIPC 4.20 (registered), FSX SP1, Windows Vista Ultimate:

PROBLEM: I check the Winds tab page "Allow change to FS own weather" checkbox, check the "Smooth wind changes near aircraft...", uncheck the "Smooth only when airborne" checkbox and click the OK button.

When I open FSUIPC again, the Winds tab page, the "Allow change to FS own weather" is unchecked.

Is this a bug?

Thank you in advance,

Kerke

No idea, sorry, but I think it works fine in the latest interim version (4.218) available above, in the FSX downloads announcement. Please try that.

Peter, I copied FSUIPC.DLL 4.218 to the Modules folder (attachment 1.jpg), replaced 4.20 but unfortunately now FSUIPC does not show in my FSX Add-ons menu (attachment 2.jpg).

Ah, sorry. Sounds like you don't have FSX SP2 or Acceleration installed. As just reported in another thread here, it was discovered earlier today that I made a silly build error with 4.218 and it only works with those. I will post a revised build over the weekend, Monday at the latest. 4.219.

If you believe you do have FSX SP2 or Acceleration installed, please show me the FSUIPC4 log file (from the FSX Modules folder).

BTW there is really no need to keep posting those pictures, lovely though they are. I do tend to believe folks -- even if I didn't I'd prefer other types of proof (logs etc) not disk-filling and screen pictures! ;-)

Regards

Pete

OK... I will not post any screenshots.

I installed 4.219 and it is now visible in the FSX Add-ons menu. Settings on the Winds tab page are now saved when I click OK. However, if at anytime I click on the Miscellaneous tab page and then click on Winds tab page, the Winds setting are gone.

Aha! Yes, I see that too. It isn't the Wind settings specifically, but the "Allow changes .." option. This must have been what you were seeing before. It also affects the Visibility and Clouds pages with the same option.

It is a result of my moving the "Allow changes ..." option off the Miscellaneous page with copies instead on the Winds, Clouds and Visibility pages, where it has some significance. Seems I omitted to remove code from the Miscellaneous page processing. Sorry.

Thanks for this clearer report. I will have this fixed in the next incremental release, or at least in the next main user release which I am aiming for the end of the month. Meanwhile, please visit the Winds, Clouds or Visibility pages after the Miscellaneous page to re-check that option.

Regards

Pete
