Issues with Simcheck A300 in P3D2


Recommended Posts

This amazing bird works well in P3D2 except for an annoying little glitch...it runs out of batery power in no time, and doesnt read the values from the APU generator. I have reinstalled FSUIPC (I had this problem once in FSX and a reinstall of FSUIPC fixed it) but no joy.

 

Is there anything anyone could suggest please?

What has reinstalling FSUIPC got to do with it? There is a facility in a registered install of FSUIPC for extending battery life, but you have to enable it.

First thing I did was enable extending battery life in FSUIPC...it doesnt work, so I reinstalled FSUIPC countless times.

I am quite sure it may be an LM bug, unfortunately, as the Cold and Dark state for any aircraft ported over from FSX has issues with engines and power.

 

The only way to not run out of power in the Simcheck A300 is to start with the engines running.

Why? Reinstalling FSUIPC does nothing, unless possibly updating it if you download a later version. Replacing a DLL with exactly the same DLL does nothing useful.

I've not had a problem with the FSX 737 in P3Dv2. I use Project Magenta and other cockpit software, and they manage to provide ample electrical power from APU or ground power using FSUIPC's facilities to control the battery voltage -- basically doing the same as the facility in the Miscellaneous tab in FSUIPC. I'm sure there are many folks using ported aircrft with no problems.

 

However, I admit I've not used P3D very much. My FSX setup and performance is so good these days I'm not jumpng ship yet.

If FSUIPC's battery management doesn't work in a specific aircraft it must surely be because the code in the aircraft implementation is defeating it? Are you saying the facility works in all other aircraft except he A300, or in all aircraft ported from FSX, or in all aircraft including the ones supplied with P3D? I'm a little confused by what you are saying now.

 

Try monitoring offset 2834 as a FLT64 in the Monitoring facilities in FSUIPC's logging tab. That's where the battery voltage is stored, and it is that value which is kept up by the FSUIPC facility (and used by cockpit software for APU and ground power).
