FSUIPC and crossfired FSX

Hi Pete,

 

For my new computer which is not exclusively used for FSX I've bought two (expensive) new ATI R9 290X Graphic cards which I've slightly overclocked and run crossfired. I was astonished when I read in the forums that FSX can indeed be run crossfired too if the  ATICrossfireXtension tool is used to fire it up  and  if FSX is assigned to another game profile like Crysis which makes full use of Crossfire. And indeed it works and gives me marvellous frame rates I would  never have dared dreaming of before (>110 fps)! But the strange thing is that if I use the ATICrossfireExtension tool to fire up FSX, my FSUIPC4 and WideFs only runs in unregistered mode where I have no more access to my axis, key and button assignments and all add-ons running on client computers do not communicate with FSUIPC anymore. If I start FSX directly, then everything works fine, but of course without the benefit of crossfire and humble frames. Reinstalling FSUIPC didn't solve the issue. Would you please help me how get full access to my registered FSUIPC version (again) if I start FSX via the ATICrossfireExtension tool? I'd appreciate your help.

 

Best regards (and enjoy your holidays)

Thanks for your help Thomas. Unfortunately this didn't help.I've run ATICrossfireXtension from C:\ATICrossfireExtension and even from within C:\FSX which is where my FSX resides. I tried running as an administrator by right-click and even via the command line but with no success so far. A soon as use the Tool to launch FSX, FSUIPC runs in an unregistered version with no WideFS connectivity. It's frustrating as hell....

After a few hours of internet research I have finally figured out what the problem is, HOWEVER STILL WITHOUT FINDING A SOLUTION TO IT: The ATICrossfireXtension tool copies fsx.exe and renames it crysis.exe which is the game whose crossfire profile the ATi card drivers will use when FSX is fired up using the ATICrossfireXtension tool. However, FSUPIC is licensed to work with fsx.exe and if I reinstall FSUIPC it will be re-regisitered for the fsx.exe and doesn't take notice of crysis.exe which I need to run instead of fsx.exe to benefit from crossfire. The main problem is that FSUIPC can only be (re-)regisierted using the installer and neither from within FSX nor its copy crysis.exe which would be needed in my case. If I only I found a way to do this, my problem would probably be solved.  I hope Pete or somebody else can help me fix this without having to uninstall my whole FSX setup...

 

Any further advice and help is greatly appreciated, thx.

Hi,

 

in that case all related file of FSX will be named as crisis as well, like FSX.cfg will be crisis.cfg and so on.

FSUIPC4.ini will be FSUIPC4.crysis.ini.

If you already had FSUIPC4 set up for FSX with special settings and may be controller settings then you can keep this by renaming the FSUIPC4.ini file to FSUIPC4.crysis.ini and the FSUIPC4.key file to FSUIPC4.crysis.key

You will find already a new FSUIPC4.crysis.ini file in FSX moduls  folder but that is a fresh created one you can just delete to then rename the old one.
