FSUIPC and FTG ACARS


 Share

Recommended Posts

Hello,

It has been several days that i contacted the support of the software FTG ACARS (flight recorder of the virtual company FTG AIR FRANCE) . In spite of numerous exchanges we do not manage to find the solution

I always have the same crash when I use the flight recorder. When I make a flight in Concorde from Paris, I always have a crash when I approach in approximately 25 NM of a VOR.

The FTG ACARS error seems to indicate that FSUIPC disconnects :

Here is the FTG ACARS error log :

What crashes? The aircraft, FSX (or FS9 or FS2002 or what?) or your ACARS program? You need to provide more information if you want assistance. I need to know what crashes, what version of FS, what version of FSUIPC, and why you think it is FSUIPC.

The FTG ACARS error seems to indicate that FSUIPC disconnects :

FSUIPC never disconnects as it never makes the connection -- other programs connect, FSUIPC merely responds. If it isn't responding it will be because FS is hung or crashed or whatever. FSUIPC is part of the FS process so if it hangs so does FSUIPC.

Here is the FTG ACARS error log :

That's not my program so its log is no use to me at all. Where's the FSUIPC log?

Sorry.

I am going to try to give more information.

It's a FS9 crashes with return to windows. It arises always at the same moment.

I just want to know is there is a problem between FSUIPC and the ACARS given that the message (acars error log) :

23:10 10.11.2011 : LIVEACARS ELSEPART:

23:13 10.11.2011 : FSUIPC DISCONNECTED @FUEL IPC sendmessage failed all retries

The FSUIPC log is :

No, it isn't a problem between those two. FSUIPC is okay -- it just becomes unable to respond to your ACARS program because it is running inside FS9, and FS9 is crashing. FSUIPC cannot continue on its own without FS9, it is not a freestanding program.

Since FS9 is crashing always at the same place when you are flying, it is 99% likely to be a bad scenery element. You'll need to isolate different add-on sceneries until you find the culprit, then re-install that.

Thank you for the speed of your support.

The crash does not arrive when I do not use the ACARS.

That may simply affect the timing of things inside FS.

If you wish me to check further you'll need to enable ipc write logging in FSUIPC's logging tab. But if the ACARS program is only reading things (which I would assume -- why would it write anything?), I doubt this will show anything different. By all means post the log here if there are any writes leading to the crash -- it is easy to cause a crash by writing incorrect values.

You could also try the latest version of FSUIPC3 (3.998h) -- see the Download Links subforum.

Thank you very much Pete for all this information.

I have just done a flight without the ACARS and I have the same crash (I had not tried again since the installation of the ACARS).

It results from a scenery as you thought of it.

I set to work.

Have you craftiness to look for faster ?

Frédéric

I have found the culprit.

Good.

I do not understand why a scenery which worked fine begins doing crashes

Happens to me too. I think it's often related to other scenery layers, common textures, things like that. It gets very complicated. I've got such a problem at the moment which I cannot resolve -- it isn't consistent, so it is almost impossible to track down.

Regards

Pete
