My Cessna Mustang transponder switch is reverse of Squawkbox's since FSUIPC is installed


Recommended Posts

Hi,

I recently downloaded FSUIPC ( FSUIPC4 (2068) ) from simmarket to work with FSCommander. I have one problem though. It seems the Flight One Cessna Mustang transponder switch works the opposite from the Squawkbox transponder switch. That is, if I turn off the transponder on the Mustang Garmin PFD, it goes on on the Squawkbox interface (and vice versa). I'm not 100% sure it worked normally before the FSUIPC install, but I'm pretty sure. It seems to work fine with the PMDG 737 NGX I have.

One of the other reasons I bought FSUIPC was because the Wilco Citation X needed it to display the weather. It seems to only display the different color pattern in the test mode. I was wondering if you could point me to a place that describes how to get that set-up.

I have FSX, and Windows & 64 bit

Thanks,

Jerry

There's no FSUIPC4 download available from simMarket. They only sell the registration keys. There's no version "2068" either.

There's no transponder switch facility normally operating in FSUIPC unless you assign one, because FSX doesn't really simulate any of the switches on the transponder. If Flight1 are doing something for Squawkbox4 maybe they are doing it directly, not via FSUIPC4? Possibly they are also using the old FS9/Squawbox 3 offset in FSUIPC so that their code works in both. That would create a double action. Please look up the parameter

NoActionOn7B91

in the FSUIPC4 Advanced User's guide (on about page 11). Maybe that will help.

There's nothing in FSUIPC to set up. Not many aircraft designed for FSX use FSUIPC to get the weather, they use SimConnect directly. I think you need to ask Wilco because I'm certainly not aware that they use FSUIPC..

The 2068 was just from the registration page. Sorry I didnt mean it to be the version #. I thought perhaps it was the build # or something. The DLL has a version of 4.80. modified date 2/9/2012

Thanks. I just found all the docs in the docs directory :)

I'll pursue the weather from the Wilco side. I had the gauge working fine on their FS9 plane.

From the Wilco manual ...

Weather Radar

The latest FSUIPC (free or payware version)

must be installed prior to use the Weather

Radar. Link :

The weather radar included is based on the

real Collins WXR2100. ...

Thanks for the quick reply,

Jerry
