Steering Tiller

Recommended Posts

Hi Pete,

I have FSUIPC version 4.80, just been searching for MaxSteerSpeed=60 in the .ini folder but unable to locate. Has it been withdrawn?

I am aware the subject of tiller steering has been raised here many times but would like to clarify that rudders must be assigned and calibrated in FSUIPC to use MaxSteerSpeed, if you connect to the FS Rudder axis alone then MaxSteerSpeed can no longer be used.

I have Saitek Pro Pedals which by default connect via USB to the FS Axis and include toe brakes. Is it possible to override these FS calibration and assignment and reassign using FSUIPC and still have toe brake facility?

The tiller system I have is from SimParts, Stuttgart, USB connection via small BU0836 board.

Another question off subject reference PMDG 737NGX, whenever I attempt to allocate Button and Switches in FSUIPC and press o.k. FSX closes down, I get a warning "Flight Simulator must close". Does not matter if I select Aircraft Specific or use FS. This does not occur with other aircraft models only the 737NGX. Does using Profiles eliminate this?

Regards,

Derek Froud

I have FSUIPC version 4.80, just been searching for MaxSteerSpeed=60 in the .ini folder but unable to locate. Has it been withdrawn?

No. Are you looking in the right place? It's part of the [JoystickCalibration] section , which will only be there if you've calibrated something. It's there so it can be different for different aircraft, and it is only operable for direct to calibration axes in any case.

I am aware the subject of tiller steering has been raised here many times but would like to clarify that rudders must be assigned and calibrated in FSUIPC to use MaxSteerSpeed, if you connect to the FS Rudder axis alone then MaxSteerSpeed can no longer be used.

What could it be used for? It's an arbitration mechanism between two axes. Please read the boxed text on this in the User Guide. It explains it all there.

I have Saitek Pro Pedals which by default connect via USB to the FS Axis and include toe brakes. Is it possible to override these FS calibration and assignment and reassign using FSUIPC and still have toe brake facility?

FSUIPC cannot override FS assignments. It's one or the other. If you assign in both they will conflict. FSUIPC supports all possible FS axes and more than can be assigned in FSX in any case.

Another question off subject reference PMDG 737NGX, whenever I attempt to allocate Button and Switches in FSUIPC and press o.k. FSX closes down, I get a warning "Flight Simulator must close".

What!??? That's bad. Please see if this happens with the latest version -- 4.81 or 4.811 (see Download Links subforum). If it still crashes I need more information. It sounds like a corrupted INI file, so I'd like to see that please.

Do you mean "mouse macro" creation mode? Does it only crash when doing tha? Earlier you said "whenever I attempt to allocate Button and Switches" I understood you tyo mean simply assigning buttons in the buttons tab. Is that not really so? It makes a lot of difference. The mouse macro creation facilty is a lot more complicated and might be influenced by the aircraft loaded. I'd need to check, but I could do with clarification first, please.

Here is my .ini file,

Okay, checking that now ...

... Nothing wrong with the INI file. But I can't check with your "linda" or "NGX_AUTO" files. I see you have the latter loaded automatically when you load the PMDG737. Maybe it is something in that

I used your INI and created a few mouse macros whilst in the PMDG 737NGX SP1c virual cockpit, and had no problems, and they all worked fine, so there's something different in what you are doing. Many others also seem to be using it successfully.

So, I need to know every little detail of what you do to make the crash occur. I also need more details of the actual crash -- the data from the Windows error log in particular, please.

Regards

Pete

Pete,

Confirm the problem exists with buttons and switches also mouse macros creation. But can now narrow it down, tried simply opening and closing FSUIPC whilst in the PMDG737MGX. I went to Addons/Modules/FSUIPC and the usual front page appears, did not go any further just selected O.K. to come out of FSUIPC with the same crash. Screen go white with small window stating " Microsoft Flight Simulator has stopped working" there is option for windows to search for cause and report back but nothing appears unless it is recorded somewhere?

When you say Windows error log, where does that reside exactly, can you advise path?

Strange how the problem exists only with PMDG737NGX.

Pete,

Narrowed it down, no longer have the crash when coming out of FSUIPC when in PMDG737NGX,

I completely removed and saved the orig Modules folder then created a fresh clean Modules and installed fresh FSUIPC4 ver 4.81 with no other programs in there.

Must be an issue with one of the addon progies that appear in the original Modules folder, here is that list:

FSUIPC4 with all the files.

linda

linda_config

0_PMDG_ATTN.MCRO

ifly737.MCRO

ipcReady.lua

levelD767.MCRO

Linda.exe

linda.lua

linda.log

LVLD.dll_for _simconnect_1.zip

NGX_AUTO.lua

sb3guagebridge.dll

Well, of those the ones which would presumably be involved are:

linda

linda_config

ipcReady.lua

levelD767.MCRO

Linda.exe

linda.lua

NGX_AUTO.lua

sb3guagebridge.dll

But that isn't the point. FSUIPC should never crash FS, so I need to find out why and fix it.

So, please:

1. Change to version 4.811 (from Download Links subforum), so you are on the same version as me,

2. Reproduce the crash.

3. find the error details in the Windows error log. On this you asked:

When you say Windows error log, where does that reside exactly, can you advise path?

Go to "My computer" or "Computer", right-click, select Manage -- or go to the Start menu and enter "Manage" and press Enter.

Select "Event Viewer" then "Windows Logs" then "Applications". Scroll down the list till you find an Error (red icon with exclamation mark), see if it was for FSX. Find the FSX one, Double-clcik on it, select "Copy" then paste the details in a message here.

Regards

Pete

It's a crash in DirectInput. Some sort of a problem with one of the devices you have attached, or its driver. Maybe something addressed by your LINDA configuration, or your levelD767 macro file? Perhaps you can do a process of elimination, unplugging one device at a time? I see you have 6 of them:

0=BU0836X Interface

1=G-Throttles

2=Saitek Pro Flight Rudder Pedals

3=BU0836X Interface

4=BU0836X Interface

5=Plasma-MM2

If you cannot locate it I'll see if I can add some more diagnostic logging into FSUIPC to narrow it down somewhat.

[LATER]

Meanwhile, I've realised you can probably get a little more datas by adding this to the [General] section of the FSUIPC4.INI file:

Debug=Please

LogExtras=x200000

Then reproduce the error. Show me the log.

Pete

Here is the log following Debug=Please and LogExtras=x200000

No, no. The above lines create some extra logging in the FSUIPC log, not the Windows log -- it was the FSUIPC log file I needed to see!

[LATER]

I've now made a special version of FSUIPC which might, hopefully, trap the error and log more useful information. For the time being, without that Log I needed, I've assumed it is occurring durng one of the specific initialisation DirectInput calls. If it does, this version should catch it:

FSUIPC4811a

Please try it and let me know. Remember, it is the FSUIPC4 log I need to see.

Here is the FSUIPC4.log

Interesting that you got LINDA logging this time, too.

The code I put in to catch the crash isn't being triggered, so the crash is evidently NOT occurring when FSUIPC itself is rescanning and initialising the DirectInput devices. I'll have to pt more traps in. If those don't work, I can only think it is somehow related to what LINDA is doing. That's running in its own thread, separately. I've no idea how or why that would be crashing DINPUT.DLL.

Did you try with each of your 5 devices unplugged, one at a time, to see if it was definitely associated with just one? If so, what was the result? If not, could you try it please?

Please try with this version with more traps in:

FSUIPC4811b

After that I think we need some assistance in narrowing down what exactly LINDA is doing at the time of the crash. Maybe there's more logging that can be enabled, or that they can add for us. I'm afraid i now nothing about LINDA at all. Can you ask the author(s) for help with this? Don't they have their own website?

Pete,

About to replace the .dll with 4811b,

With 4811a I noted the crash now occurs if I attempt to open FSUIPC.

Will try removing devices one by one today.

Pete,

I have tested with devices unplugged one at a time, still had crash on attempting to open FSUIPC each time. Then I unplugged just the three BU0836X boards, these have all LINDA buttons and switches for my overhead panel which function perfectly.

The result of unplugging the three BU boards together is I can now open and use FSUIPC as normal.

So it is LINDA it would seem.

Here is the latest log with all three BU boards unplugged,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,Derek

Can confirm unable to open FSUIPC without crash with this .dll.

Ah, but it has trapped at least two crashes, which should help:

I'm not sure I'm logging enough data yet, though. i'll check into this now. Oddly, both of those crashes are on device 1=G-Throttles, not on a Bodnar board.

The result of unplugging the three BU boards together is I can now open and use FSUIPC as normal.

So it is LINDA it would seem.

Yes, but it shouldn't be able to cause FS to crash. I need to find out why. Is there any chance of getting the LINDA authors to help narrow it down. I could do with knowing what it did last, before each crash. The LINDA entries in the Log seem to finish before the crash. Maybe there's extra they can enable.

If LINDA is merely causing some Lua plug-ins to run, could you perhaps wait till the crash occurs, then ZIP up the Lua files from the Modules folder and send them to me at petedowson@btconnect.com ?

Got them. Thanks.

Wow! That's some complicated syatem the LINDA program creates! I was hoping for something i could maybe try here, but I wouldn't know where to begin, and in any case it may depend upon having the same hardware connected as you.

I have, however, made yet another test version of FSUIPC. Please download this:

FSUIPC4811c

Edit the FSUIPC4.INI file, changing the "LogExtras=" line you already have to:

LogExtras=x200040

Then reproduce the crash once again.

The log file might be quite big -- this traces the execution of the Lua plug-ins. I'm hoping to determine which call causes the problem. If it is a large file, ZIP it as send it as before please.

Have you been in touch with LINDA support at all?

Regards

Pete

In the email accompanying the log you sent, you said:

Something new with the latest .dll and that .ini update I can now access

FSUIPC without crash, opened Buttons and Switches also tried Axis page

and then O.K. and came out of FSUIPC without the crash.

I've looked at the log which, had the crash occurred, could have been very useful, as it is logging the path through the assorted LINDA lua files AND, more importantly, probably, the NGX_AUTO file -- both of which appear to be running simlutaneously all the time.

However, not only don't you get the original crash, but there is also no sign of the problems shown in the earlier log. i.e. the two trapped and logged crashes. Might odd, because I made no changes in that area.

I tend to suspect that the Lua tracing is slowing down the execution of the Lua files sufficiently to prevent whatever clash was occurring. To check that, could you just revert to the previous value for LogExtras? i.e.

LogExtras=x200000

just to see if it is indeed the timing, or something else has changed. Maybe, if it was, say, a corruption of something in memory, the recompilation with this extra logging has moved things sufficiently to make something else corrupt instead! Very worrying!

Pete

Email sent with latest LogExtras value..............Sim crash resulted.........Latest FSUIPC.log in email to you

Yes, so it is definitely some sort of timing-dependent conflict which is occurring. They are extremely difficult to nail -- the very method I used with the Lua tracing to determine which Lua library action is responsible evidently slows things down enough to avoid the conflict. I'm going to have to think about how i can get more information again.

I could of course simply stop (suspend) all HID and Joystick device interaction in Lua whilst FSUIPC options are active. However, this would then prevent some of the flexibility Lua programs have of interacting with menus, virtual buttons, and joystic calibration, which would be a shame.

You said that without anything in the "actions.lua" script the crash no longer occurs. I've looked at that and it seems to be full of LVar reads and PMDG NGX controls sent, -- I don't see anything in there which might interact with devices at all, only FS innards, so really it shouldn't come into it. But maybe the device interaction there is hidden in some of the calls.

I don't understand where the LINDA.EXE GUI comes into the equation. They said "Without GUI your joysticks programmed in LINDA will not work". This implies that the EXE is doing some of the HID or Joystick accessing. I need to understand that part, because that must surely be where this conflit is occurring.

If it's in the FSUIPC Lua libraries, then I really do need to narrow it down to the Lua library function which is being executed at the time of the crash. I had hoped that Lua trace would do this, but it slows things down too much. I'm afraid that if I log all calls into the library functions the same might occur. But I'll take a look.

Maybe a little more explanation about the run-time joystick role of LINDA.EXE would be useful, and perhaps some pointers to where in the mass of complex Lua code I might look to possibile clashes. They mention memory issues, but I really doubt that any problems of actual memory usage are arising -- after all the memory use with the tracing enabed would have been greater, not less.

I'm going to have to think about how i can get more information again.

Instead of doing that, I'm trying something else. I'm assuming that the problem is that two things are calling the DirectInput functions in Windows at the same time, or close, and that the routines being called are simply not re-entrant so get themselves in a mess and crash.

To prevent this I've put interlocks on the three routines in FSUIPC which perform such access. Please download 4.811d and try that for me:

FSUIPC4811d

Email sent with new log...............Derek

And you said:

Here is the log with the version 4.811d .dll installed.......crash

occurred on selecting FSUIPC in FSX......once again only with the PMDG

NGX not other aircraft.

That is very very disappointing. It is most certainly not a problem with simultaneous calls arriving in DINPUT.DLL from FSUIPC -- the varios parts are now linterlocked. So it is starting to all point to whatever it is that Linda.EXE program is doing. I find it's role in this completely mystifying -- like why is it necessary to have that separate process running in order to use the joysticks?

Another question if I may, when I manage to open FSUIPC (no crash

obviously) and select AXIS Assignments page I have noted the digits to

the right of Delta IN - OUT are racing around not at all steady. i.e.

-16380 in both the In and Out areas flashes past with other unreadable

sets, unable to read them for they pass by so quickly. Like you see on a

slot machine or "one armed bandit". Is that normal?

No, it most certainly is not! That sounds like part of the problem. Does it stil happen without LINDA.EXE running? If so it is faulty hardware -- bad joysticks or connections or maybe drivers. If removing LINDA.EXE from the equation stops that then the question in as above only more so -- what on Earth is that process doing?

Does it happen on all axes? (Use the "ignore" option to work through them).

Pete,

- LINDA GUI (linda.exe) - is the only part of the system which is dealing with HID-devices directly.

- Lua scripts in LINDA are only using COM-port interactions.

- actions.lua script is just a collection of Lua functions which are called only when some button is pressed. There is also a little part of it which is executed by timer, but it's not really big to cause any problems.

So, if error is still there without linda.exe running, then this is Lua scripting problem. And the only idea I have, is some kind of memory limitation for Lua scripts in FSUIPC.
