FSX freezes and FSUIPC looses connection with FSX


Recommended Posts

So i'm a FSX user for severall years and i fly for a VA, wich uses Acars.

I constantly suffer of interupted flights because sometimes my FSX freezes for some minutes wich causes to FSUIPC loose connection and close, not being able to finish the log and send to my VA.

Due to hardware upgrade i had to reinstall Windows 7 64 bits and also FSX, so right now i'm running FSX with only a few addons ( scenery, weather and airplanes ), so it could be considered a almoust "clean" install.

Can these freezes may be caused by FSUIPC itself? Is there any way to prevent this connection loss?

Thanks in advance!

FSUIPC never "closes". If SimConnect stops sending it data for too long it will attempt to reconnect, and will continue to do so until successful. Please check the FSUIPC4.LOG file and see these attempts in action.

 

If it never recovers then, yes, its operation cannot continue and you won't see the entry for it in the Add-Ons menu. But if it is that drastic then you really have something very badly wrong.

Not that i know of, but you provide no information at all. What version of FSUIPC (if not at least 4.921 then please update). Is FSX fully updated? Show me the LOG file please.

If SimConnect is freezing or crashing, then nothing FSUIPC can do can fix that. You need to find the reason. Does this ACARS system use SimConnect? Could it be a problem with the TCP/IP protocol used on your on-line link -- SimConnect uses TCP/IP too. You probably need to go through a process of elimination -- see if yiu ever get these freezes when not flying on line, or just not using ACARs.

Hello and thanks for the fast reply.

Tries to reconnect several times, untill finally closes...

was using 4.91, just will updated!

FSX is fully updated, and also installed SP1 and SP2 ( wich LOG do you need? )

Don't know if this ACARS use SimConnect, exe file is at : http://www.flightsimulatorportugal.com/fspdownloads/Install_FSPAcars_1.0.2.3.exe

FSUIPC4.LOG : 

 

 31 System time = 14:52:46

       46 FLT UNC path = "\\LUISMIGUELLOPES\Users\Luis Miguel Lopes\Documents\Flight Simulator X Files\"
       46 FS UNC path = "\\LUISMIGUELLOPES\Jogos ( D )\Microsoft Flight Simulator X\"

 

You cut off the first lines of the Log which shows the Version Number! Please do not do that!

 

Anyway, it illustrates what I said. FSUIPC is working fine, but Simconnect is stalling:

 

  1275136 **** No SimConnect events or states being received! Re-connecting now ... ****

  1275136 SimConnect_Open succeeded: waiting to check version okay
  1275136 Running in "Microsoft Flight Simulator X", Version: 10.0.61472.0 (SimConnect: 10.0.61259.0)
  1275136 Initialising SimConnect data requests now
  1275136 FSUIPC Menu entry added
 

One thing which actually does show what might be one reason: FSX seems mightily overloaded. The average frame rate for the first 6 minutes (almost) was dismally low -- unflyable, I would say:

 

   355448 Sim stopped: average frame rate for last 132 secs = 9.6 fps

 

You appeared to have stopped it to go into Menus (?) and reloaded the flight:

 

 

  1275152 C:\Users\Luis Miguel Lopes\Documents\Flight Simulator X Files\VAFS.FLT

  1275152 C:\Users\Luis Miguel Lopes\Documents\Flight Simulator X Files\IFR Faro to Francisco Sa Carneiro.PLN
  1275199 C:\Users\Luis Miguel Lopes\Documents\Flight Simulator X Files\IFR Faro to Francisco Sa Carneiro.PLN
  1276041 System time = 15:14:02, FSX time = 13:54:22 (13:54Z)

 

Then things carried on and, again, SimConnect stalls after another 5 minutes plus:

 

 

  1586967 **** No SimConnect events or states being received! Re-connecting now ... ****

  1586967 SimConnect_Open succeeded: waiting to check version okay
  1586967 Running in "Microsoft Flight Simulator X", Version: 10.0.61472.0 (SimConnect: 10.0.61259.0)
  1586967 Initialising SimConnect data requests now
  1586967 FSUIPC Menu entry added

 

Again it recovers, though something reloads the PLAN file ... twice!

 

  1586998 C:\Users\Luis Miguel Lopes\Documents\Flight Simulator X Files\IFR Faro to Francisco Sa Carneiro.PLN

  1587013 C:\Users\Luis Miguel Lopes\Documents\Flight Simulator X Files\IFR Faro to Francisco Sa Carneiro.PLN

  1587201 System time = 15:19:13, FSX time = 13:59:23 (13:59Z)

 

And again things carry on for another 5 minutes plus -- and again a PLAN file reload, twice:

 

  1902276 **** No SimConnect events or states being received! Re-connecting now ... ****
  1902276 SimConnect_Open succeeded: waiting to check version okay
  1902276 Running in "Microsoft Flight Simulator X", Version: 10.0.61472.0 (SimConnect: 10.0.61259.0)
  1902276 Initialising SimConnect data requests now
  1902276 FSUIPC Menu entry added
  1902307 C:\Users\Luis Miguel Lopes\Documents\Flight Simulator X Files\IFR Faro to Francisco Sa Carneiro.PLN
  1902323 C:\Users\Luis Miguel Lopes\Documents\Flight Simulator X Files\IFR Faro to Francisco Sa Carneiro.PLN
  1902525 System time = 15:24:29, FSX time = 14:04:20 (14:04Z)

 

but this time it only runs for 87 seconds before stalling. Then 13 seconds, then only 1 second, then ... 5 minutes plus, again, several times, each with double PLAN reloads, until finally the stall is unrecoverable for several reties, but then okay again! etc etc. And a dismal average frame rate too:

 
Average frame rate for running time of 6016 secs = 13.5 fps

 

So, something you are running is doing things, probably via Simconnect, which is making a real mess of FSX's operation, and it is probably all wrapped up with this double PLAN file reloading. Maybe it is somethgng in that Plan file which causes a problem, but that seems unlikely. If that ACARS program is the only add-on you are running then it must surely be the culprit. Try without.

 

I can't really help more than this. FSUIPC is not to blame, it is trying its best. Something else is truly clobbering your FSX performance.

 

Don't know if this ACARS use SimConnect, exe file is at : http://www.flightsimulatorportugal.com/fspdownloads/Install_FSPAcars_1.0.2.3.exe

 

 

Sorry, I really cannot investigate other folks' programs. I suggest you ask their support. But try without it so you can see if that's the problem. Of course I'm assuming you are using no other add-ons or add-ins. I don't know how you are flying "on-line" but maybe therer's some other program involved too, like FSInn or Squawkbox? If so you might need to check that too.

Pete
