Addon doesn't work with FSUPIC running


Recommended Posts

Hello

I bought the FSADDON FSCARGO and I have a ptroblem with the autopilot, wich causes by the version of FSUIPC, that I use (3.98)

What I need is the following:

Do you know about a problem like that?

Wich version of FSUIPC do I need to run the both prgramms together?

Is that version able to set flight controlls?

And can I save me current flight controls setting to import it to the older version?

Thank for help

There is no way FSUIPC will interfere with anything unless you ask it to. By default it does nothing.

Do you know about a problem like that?

No. you should ask as FSAddon's support site.

Wich version of FSUIPC do I need to run the both prgramms together?

Only the latest. 3.98 or later. See the Updates announcement here for 3.989

Pete,

Thanks for the quick reply, if it contains no solution of my problem.

At the same time, my FlightKeeper doesnt record any altitudes during the FSADDON is running. Let us see, what can be the reason for all these problems.

By the way I want to say that your interface is one of the best addons for the simulation. There are so many things possible for me with FSUIPC and WIDEFS...

Thanks for that. It spends a lot of funny hours at the computer.

Does the FSUIPC.LOG file (found in the FS Modules folder) indicate any sort of problem?

I don't know what the FSAddon programcould be doing to prevent FlightKeeper reading the altitude. That makes no sense.

I cannot say, if there is an error shown - But I have tried it with a former version of FSUIPC (3.7) and then it works very fine.

I dont know, if thats an indikator for the reason of the problem.

What do you think?

Can you tell me, if the FSUIPC 3.7 works together with the WIDEFS 6.7.8???

No, there is no error.

Hmmm, curiouserI need more information then.

1. Is the altitude the only thing missing in FlightKeeper's log?

2. Does it just omit it, or give it incorrectly?

3. Can you please enable IPC Read logging, in the Logging tab of FSUIPC, then reproduce the problem. Please end the session as soon as you know the FK logging is wrong -- the Log file will become huge quickly.

4. Save the FSUIPC.LOG file with a different name, and do exactly the same for 3.7, stopping it at about the same time.

5. ZIP up the logs and email as attachments to me at petedowson@btconnect.com.

Please also report this to Flight Keeper support, because I think I'll need Simon to identify what it is which FK is doing differently.

Regards

Pete

Yes, but it it's just missing, when using the FS Cargo. Without the FS Cargo everthing ist doing well...

2. Does it just omit it, or give it incorrectly?

It give incorrect figures. During a flight at 15000ft, it will show minus 355 for example

I will try to do it as explained. But I cannot send it to the FlightKeepers Supporter. They don't support the Version 2.8 anymore...:-(

See you then.

Is it possible to correlate the differences? Or does it appear random? It sounds very much as if FlightKeeper is reading the wrong value, or the altimeter, not the altitude, assuming it is always in feet or metres even though the FScargo program might change the altimeter option. Possibly it is also using the pressure read-out to compute the altitude so it can tell what flight levels you are flying and the FSCargo application is setting wildly incorrect pressure settings.

I can't see any possible valid correlation between 15000 feet (4572 metres) and -355 (or more likely 65181, the positive equivalent in a 16-bit value). Considering that and the fact that it was okay in FSUIPC 3.7 strongly suggests that FK is reading some incorrect offset in FSUIPC that just happened, by coincidence, to contain the altitude but which offset has since been used for something else.

Information on what FlightKeeper is actually reading would tell us. But I think, even when we know this, it would need a fix in FlightKeeper.

I will try to do it as explained. But I cannot send it to the FlightKeepers Supporter. They don't support the Version 2.8 anymore...:-(

I'm not surprised! Version 3 has been available for a while now and fixes a lot of things. I'd recommend that you upgrade.

Equally I cannot support FSUIPC 3.7.

Regards

Pete
