I'm having trouble with fsuipc 4.  I have shortaircraftnameok=yes and profiles=yes.  However, when I change planes I.E. iFly or PMDG 77, I have to open up fsuipc and do like my buttons and switches and click on profiles.  It will either select the plane or I have to pick it from the list.  Shouldn't it be automatic that it picks the correct plane?

The combination of "ShortAircraftNameOK=Yes" and "UseProfiles=Yes" requires the first-part of aircraft's name string listed in the appropriate [profile.XXXX] section of FSUIPC4.INI.

Initially, if we choose a profile from FSUIPC dropdown list for "new/unassigned aircraft", FSUIPC will write its full name string to the selected profile.


So, it's a common practice to check the "Title=" in the AIRCRAFT.CFG and manually edit the [profile.XXXX] sections in FSUIPC4.INI for automatic profile assignment according the "ShortAircraftNameOK=Yes/No/Substring" setting.

e.g from initially

1=Boeing 737-800 Paint1
2=Boeing 737-800 Paint2
3=Boeing 737-800 Paint2


1=Boeing 737-800

for "ShortAircraftNameOK=Yes"



for "ShortAircraftNameOK=Substring"
