FS2004 (FS9) Turbulence Sound Script

Recommended Posts

Folks, below is code that will successfully trigger a sound file when turbulence is detected, Conversely, once the turbulence no longer exists, the sound file stops. I have tested and retested the script and all is well.

Credits to Pete Dowson and "cellular55" of which some code was ported.

___________________________________________________________________

Instructions for use:

1. Copy the below code (only in blue) and paste into Windows Notepad.

2. Save the file with the name: ipcready.lua

3. Place this file into your FS9/modules folder

4. Choose a sound (wav) file that best represents the sound of turbulence to you. i.e. rattle, bumps, etc.

5. Name this sound file turb.wav and place it into your FS9/sound folder.

Note: I have attached the turb.wav file that I am using and it is specifically edited to use with tactile transducers. It may or may not suit you as well.

Thats it.

Regards,

Michael Lehkamp

Has anyone tried this? So far I am unable to get this to work. I assume FSUIPC is required and I have a registered version, also have updated fs9 to v 9.1.

Sounds like your FSUIPC is out of date. Install the current version.

You need the version number of FSUIPC, not a date! It is easy enough to find -- it is shown in the options, on screen, it is shown in the Log file, and it is found in the DLL properties.

Does the Log file show any errors?

A short flight starting att ESSA. Turning west through thick cloudlayer with heavy turbulence. In FSUIPC-log I checked weather, Log Lua plugns...,Debug trace Lua plugins and extras.

I'm a total newbie to this so bare with me :-)

A short flight starting att ESSA. Turning west through thick cloudlayer with heavy turbulence. In FSUIPC-log I checked weather, Log Lua plugns...,Debug trace Lua plugins and extras.

I'm a total newbie to this so bare with me :smile:

 

 

Sorry, the log shows nothing useful. I simply asked you to look to see if there were an errors logged -- errors would be marked as "error" in some way. Not too hard. I did not ask for any options to be selected.

 

You enabled all sorts of options which were not required and in fact would have diverted any Lua problems to a separate log. Please uncheck ALL options on the Logging page, and DO NOT PRESS "New Log" -- doing that starts a new log and renames the old one. The old one contains all the useful startup information, probably including any errors from an auto-loaded Lua plug-in.

 

You'll need to load up FS and uncheck all logging options then close it again, so when you next run it no options will mess things up. Then just run FS as you normally do, get into a turbulent situation, and then close FS down. If you cannot look for the word "error", paste the log here.

 

There are other options we can use to go deeper, but it is not worth doing so until the basics are known.

Hello Michael, Pete,

 

I have an issue with this script, the sound is always ending with average of 5 to 10 minutes late (yes that much) after the last turbulence or after landing (engines off at parking and still playing the sound). I tried several times with the same result (and sometimes it start with 2-3 minutes delay after the first turbulence, but that's not a big deal).

I am using an alternate sound which is 15 sec long.

Have FSUIPC 3.99.., FS9.1, ActiveSky 6.5.

 

Any idea how to solve the problem ?

 

Kind regards,

Alex

Use WeatherSet to see if the turbulence indication is still there. I don't know what you are using to detect it.

 

If you want sounds to stop early on certain other conditions you'd need to program for that. Whilst "ground" is checked before starting the sound, there's no event programmed for the ground flag changing to stop the sound. Just add it if that's what you want.

Hello Pete,

 

Thanks a lot for this quick reply...

 

Sorry but I Don't understand what you mean about "WeatherSet". Could you explain a little bit more ?

 

As for the ground flag. I tried this :

 

-- Turbulence looping sound --
-- Initializing flags --
sndflg=0 -- turbulence sound flag
ref=0

-- Function to play sound if and until turbulence is detected --

function turbulence(offset,value)
ground=ipc.readUW(0x0366)
if (value > 0) and (sndflg == 0) and (ground == 0) then
ref=sound.playloop("turb.wav")
sndflg=1

end

if (value == 0) and (sndflg == 1) and (ground == 1) then
sound.stop(ref)
sndflg=0

end
end



-- FSUIPC LUA events

event.offset(0x0E88,"UW","turbulence")
event.offset(0x0E98,"UW","turbulence")

 

Just in case (I'm not a programmer so...) but without any change at all. It is quite annoying to hear the turbulence sound not ending...

However this script is a wonderful idea.

 

Thanks,

 

Alex

WeatherSet is a program to read FSUIPC weather offsets and display them neatly. It is part of the FSUIPC SDK, but also available separately in the Download Links subforum. WeatherSet2 is the better version for FS9 and FSX. Weatherset in for the older FS versions, but both will work.

 

As for the ground flag. I tried this :

 

You need an event programmed so that the change in the ground flag calls the function -- in your script it is only called when the turbulence values change!

 

Add this to the end:

 

event.offset(0x0366,"UW","turbulence")

I just trid the event you suggested with no result. It took 6 min 1/2 to stop playing the sound after landing.

When flying it is different, it takes "only" 3-4 min to stop after outside of turbulence then 1-2 min to start when encountering turbulence again.

 

I don't know what to do, I will try the "WeatherSet" as soon as possible to see what's going on...

 

I will let you know.

All that sounds insane.

 

I'm afraid I'm unable to test here because I do not have FS9 any more. I never reinstalled after my last PC died late last year.  I'm really getting to the position where I can no longer support a version of FS which is over 11 years old.

 

However, you can run tests and show me the results quite easily.

 

You can see the state of those three offsets the program uses by logging them in the FSUIPC Monitor. Go to the Logging tab, then, on the right hand side, use three of the 4 entries: enter 0E88 with type U16, 0E98 type U16 and 0366 type U16, then select options below -- Advdisplay to show them on the FS screen (for you to see and correlate with the sounds), but check normal log too so we get a log with times.

 

Edit the Lua plug-in to log when the sound starts and stops: i.e.

 

after the line

 

sndflg=1

 

insert

 

ipc.log("Starting turbulence sound")

 

and after

 

sndflg=0

 

insert 

 

ipc.log("stopping turbulence sound")

 

Run it, get the problem, show me the FSUIPC.LOG.

Here is the report :

 

Well, let's see:

 

  2328877 Monitor IPC:0366 (U16) = 0

  2641269 Monitor IPC:0E98 (U16) = 64

  2641316 LUA.0: Starting turbulence sound

 

So, the sound was started within 50 milliseconds (1/20th of a second) of turbulence being indicated. That's pretty good!

 

  3745148 Monitor IPC:0366 (U16) = 1

  4534232 Monitor IPC:0E98 (U16) = 64

  4893783 Monitor IPC:0E98 (U16) = 0

  4893783 LUA.0: stopping turbulence sound

 

However, it only stopped when the turbulence stopped, not when you were on the ground. So, let's look at the code yet again:

 

Aha:

if (value == 0) and (sndflg == 1) and (ground == 1) then

 

The "if" line says do the following if there is no turbulence, and the sound is playing, and you are on the ground!

 

So, it is doing what it is told. Looks like the sound would never stop once it started if you stayed flying, even if turbulence stopped! The way you have it you have to have all three conditions 

 

You obviously need to say "stop if the sound is playing AND the turbulence has stopped OR you are on the ground. So:

 

if (sndflg == 1)  and  ((value == 0)  or  (ground == 1)) then

 

Just basic logic!

Hi Pete,

 

Well, another issue :

 

FSUIPC detect turbulence when there is no turbulence.

Here is an extract of the log :

 

100900573 WeatherOptions set, now E01CB78F (timer=255)
100926734 WeatherOptions set, now E00CB78F (timer=255)
100963613 Monitor IPC:0E88 (U16) = 0
100963613 Monitor IPC:0E98 (U16) = 64
100963613 Monitor IPC:0366 (U16) = 0
100996170 Monitor IPC:0E98 (U16) = 128
101026185 WeatherOptions set, now E01CB7AF (timer=255)
101063220 WeatherOptions set, now E00CB78F (timer=255)
 

As you can see, I switch OFF then switch ON again both turbulence options in FSUIPC without any result.

It detect turbulence (64 and 128) when actually it was total clear weather (no cloud or CB nearby) and very smooth condition...

I was using ActiveSky and I'm wondering if there is maybe a conflict between AS and FSUIPC ??

 

Any hint ??

 

Thanks,

You evidently misunderstand. Clear air turbulence can occur with no cloud.  That shows up in the wind layer you are in, as is clear from the log.  Use Weatherset2 to read the actual weather

 

FSUIPC is not incompatible with any weather program. It reads the weather direct from FS no matter how it is set.

 

Weather options cannot change weather already set, only weather which is set subsequently, and only weather set through FSUIPC. I don't remember. Are you using FS9 or FSX? If FS9 then most programs will be setting weather through FSUIPC. In FSX most set it directly sing SimConnect, so then the options don't apply.

 

If you want to suppress turbulence I suggest you do that before you even start ActiveSky, or perhaps do it IN ActiveSky.

Hi Pete,

 

Yes, I know quite well about CAT and it wasn't CAT as the flight was perfectly smooth. What I meant is that there was no turbulence at all, the plane was flying perfectly smooth despite the fact that FSUIPC was detecting turbulence. The turbulence was not "active" within the aircraft.

 

I don't want to suppress the turbulence. I am just wondering why FSUIPC was detecting turbulence when in fact there were none...

 

So, FSUIPC was detecting turbulence (64 & 128 in the log) while FS was not "playing" any turbulence at all, a perfectly smooth flight at that time (for about 10 min).

 

When I was saying "a conflict", I was not talking about compatibility but rather some WX settings that might interfere within each other between AS and FSUIPC due to different user settings in both software.

 

I'm using FS9.1 and AS6.5

 

English is not my mother tong so I don't know if my explanation are good enough...

Well, now it is the opposite.

I am doing the flight back (over the same route) and now I have moderate turbulence in VMC between 2 coulds layer and FSUIPC is detecting nothing (all data show 0).

 

So there is something creating a difference between what FSUIPC detect and what is "playing" within FS. Not all the time but often enough to have it on a regular basis...

 

Ahh here it goes, it took 4 to 5 minutes before having the turbulence detected :

19791202 Monitor IPC:0E98 (U16) = 0
120021990 Monitor IPC:0E88 (U16) = 216

 

So, it look like something is creating delays(several minutes) between what I actually have within my cockpit and what FSUIPC is detecting...

Sorry, I cannot help any further. FSUIPC simply reads what FS provides. FS9 weather system is not very clever in any case. It may be that the layers from one weather station interact with another, and the indications FS provides get mixed up. Did you even ever bother to see what WeatherSet was reading at all? You simply want me to solve apparently insoluble problems in a program long since unsupportable?

 

I strongly suggest you abandon such an old product and move to FSX if you want more reliable indications.

FS9 weather system is not very clever in any case. It may be that the layers from one weather station interact with another, and the indications FS provides get mixed up.

hmmm that's a very good possibility as it (more or less) correspond about what I have.

 

 

Did you even ever bother to see what WeatherSet was reading at all?

Sorry no, I don't know what is WeatherSet, didn't find this option within FSUIPC.

 

 

You simply want me to solve apparently insoluble problems in a program long since unsupportable?

 

I strongly suggest you abandon such an old product and move to FSX if you want more reliable indications.

 

Yes, I'm sorry for giving you so much trouble for such small thing...

I have FSX installed but it is way too heavy on ressources for my PC (despite the fact that I have an Acer Predator).

 

Thanks a lot for your kind help.

You've forgotten already? Didn't you even try it back then? See my answer to the same question back in post #13 on the 2nd of this month!
