Captainsim 757 rocking can FSUIPC fix it?


 Share

Recommended Posts

Hello I have recently installed the Just Flight 757 Captain Ver 4.4 from Just flight. The problem is that the 757 rocks from side to side under auto pilot in cruise and I can not use 4X time compression.

Just Flight offer ver4.4 update which I installed. Just Flight say with this update and the latest FSUIPC the problem should be fixed. I am running version 4.853 and for me its not fixed. Just flight have offered to give me a different product but I would like to fix it if possible. I like the plane.

On other forrums people say the problem caused by a corrupted FSUIPC install. How can I make sure my FSUIPC is not corrupted? should I do a fresh install of FSUIPC, how do I do this and will it affect all my other addons? Does any one have any other suggestions.

I am running i5 2500k 4.5@ win7 home premium, 8Gig ram, gtx580, SSD for OS, Raptor for FSX, Baracuda for scenery. I have no virus scanner and Win UAC is dissabled. I always install as administrator.

Regards

Sebastian

I don't understand how FSUIPC could possibly be involved in such behaviour so I don't know why they would even refer to FSUIPC. Are you sure it isn't more to do with weather - turbulence or other weather effects like gusts and variance? Check your weather program. If you are using FSUIPC's wind smoothing you can also inhibit its own wind effects using the check boxes on the same tab.

If FSUIPC is "corrupted" it won't run. There's a signature check applied to the code which is very thorough.

Hi Peter, what makes me think its not the weather is that my other aircraft are not affected. The aircraft rocks and I can see the yokes in the virtual cabbin shaking to the maximum left to right very quickly even when there is no weather.

I get a hint in what your saying that FSUIPC would not cause the problem and it almost corruption proof, the problem is with the aircraft in question, a lot of versions have been released after all.

I do not have the registered version of FSUIPC may be its time I learn more about it and payed up and start to use the more advamce features. In the mean time I may have to uninstall the aircraft I enoyed so much in FS2004 and is unsuable in FSX.

There did used to be an autopilot instability/"heading hunting" issue with the CS B757, but I thought it was resolved.

I can't check, as I don't have it installed at present (in fact I have no add-ons at all installed, including FSUIPC!) but the last installer I have is for v4.5, not v4.4.

That is the CS version, however, not through JustFlight, who may be numbering their versions differently if they didn't publish one of the patches. Have you checked the Captain Sim support forum directly to see what users have reported there?

Hi Ian, I checked but there is no real solution for people like me who bought it from Just Flight, just flight version goes to 4.4 only. Captainsim fixed the issue in ver 4.5 I just discovered and by the way there up to 4.6 now incase you reinstall it.

Just flight have offered to give me another addon from there range becuase they know its a bug in software. I guess they could not agree with CS on a deal to get the latest updates. buyers beware!

I love the plane but I am not going to buy again from Captainsim.
