Delaying SimConnect connection


Recommended Posts

Pete, I've gotten a few reports from my users regarding FSUIPC4 reporting that FSX is not "ready to fly". I check offsets 0x3364 and 0x3365 for a non-zero value, and if either reports != 0 I return back the message. When working with the users, they've provided FSUIPC logs that say "Delaying SimConnect connection".

I've tried googling this message with few results. I'm curious, what prompts FSUIPC to delay the SimConnect connection? It looks like it's been delayed here for around 33s, but then it connects just fine.

Any help you could provide would be greatly appreciated. I'm enclosing one of my users' submitted logs.

Cheers!

Luke

That is a result of the "InitDelay" option in the INI file to delay SimConnect connection. It was provided to allow possible conflicts with other SimConnect-using addons all trying to do things at the same time. It defaults to 0. From your log it seems the user has set it to 30.

Regards

Sorry to bump, but the user is having trouble finding the INI file - it's not in the Modules folder where I have mine. What directory does FSUIPC write its settings to?

Only the Modules folder. All of the FSUIPC related files are kept there, nowhere else. And he must have accessed his INI file to set the delay value as it isn't defaulted. And he seems to have supplied you the LOG file, which is next to the DLL and the INI file. Maybe he's got Windows hiding program filetypes -- the FSUIPC user guide warns of this -- in which case it's type would simply be "configuration settings" or similar.
