Airbus & FSUIPC.ini settings for AutoSave

Recommended Posts

Dear Pete and community,

 

I am writing in reference to this thread here over at the Aerosoft forums.

 

The new A318/A319 Airbus seems to produce .asc files that others and I would like AutoSave to manage, just like one can add lines to add for AutoSave to work with the PMDG 747,777... 

 

The Airbus seems to be saving .asc files into the main FSX files folder, how can I include this path, it's not within the FSX path.

 

Can you help?

Thanks and kind regards,

Joe

Exactly as documented in the FSUIPC Advanced User's document (the section listed in the contents entitled AUTOSAVE: INI-file only options) just specify the full path in the AlsoManage parameter. If it contains spaces remember to enclose the whole parameter in " "

Hello Pete,

 

WOW you are fast, thank you for your reply.

I should have checked the manual, I learnt this feature previously from another forum, so I did not know it was documented in the manual but that makes sense that it is :)

 

These "asc files" are called like "autosave mon 192901" and "autosave mon 193000" and "autosave tue 214240"

Seems like the ASC files are: "autosave space day space "ddhhmm"

 

So would this work?

 
AlsoManage8="C:\Users\Joe\Documents\Flight Simulator X-Files\*.asc"
 
Thanks,

AlsoManage8="C:\Users\Joe\Documents\Flight Simulator X-Files\*.asc"

 

If that's the path, yes it should work fine. But usually there's no "-" character in "Flight Simulator X Files", just a space instead.

 

Why not try it?

Hello Pete,

 

I did try it out... well I have FSX in German so the folder is called Flight Simulator X-Dateien and because some programs don't recognize the German name I created a symbolic link some time back, so that when applications would write to FSX  X Files it would go into Flight Simulator X-Dateien, this solved an issue with one FSX Add-on. But this as a side note, this is not the issue.

 

Anyways, it does not seem to delete the older autosave and I found another folder with .fms and also added this to FSUIPC.ini, it's not deleting the files... wonder what I am doing wrong.

The AlsoManage 9 and 10 is not working, everything else is working.

Any idea why?

 

One more question was it the line "Next2" for I did not find this in the manual.

 

This is what I have now:

 

[AutoSave]
AlsoManage1=PMDG\PMDG 737 NGX\PanelState\*.FLT.fmc
AlsoManage2=PMDG\PMDG 737 NGX\PanelState\*.FLT.sav
AlsoManage3=PMDG\PMDG 737 NGX\PanelState\*.FLT.0.rte
AlsoManage4=PMDG\747400\PanelState\*.FLT.sav
AlsoManage5=PMDG\747400\PanelState\*.FLT.0.rte
AlsoManage6=PMDG\PMDG 777X\PanelState\*.FLT.fmc
AlsoManage7=PMDG\PMDG 777X\PanelState\*.FLT.sav
AlsoManage8=PMDG\PMDG 777X\PanelState\*.FLT.0.rte
AlsoManage9="C:\Users\Joe\Documents\Flight Simulator X Files\*.asc"
AlsoManage10="C:\Users\Joe\Documents\Aerosoft\Airbus\*.fms"
!1=Also Manage
Next=2
Interval=60
Files=10
SaveOnGround=Yes
AutoSaveEnabled=Yes
1=Fri 091606
2=Fri 090710
3=Fri 090810
4=Fri 090909
5=Fri 091009
6=Fri 091109
7=Fri 091208
8=Fri 091308
9=Fri 091407
10=Fri 091507

It will not delete any old files that were there before you added the also manage lines, you need to remove those manually. Any new files will be handled correctly.

rgr, I cleaned up all previous files and am testing now but it's still not deleting the new autosave files in .fms and .asc format

As most certainly documented, there are only 8 AlsoManage entries supported. Up till now that's always been plenty. I could see if that's easy to extend and if so, do so.

 

One more question was it the line "Next2" for I did not find this in the manual.

 

 
"Next=" just keeps track of where, in your cycle of 10 saves, the next one to be replaced goes. You can see line 1= has the latest time, line 2 the earliest, so it is next to be removed and re-used.

hehe, no wonder it did not work... 

 

In the manual I read: 

Up to 32 “AlsoManage” lines can be given, numbered 1 to 32.

 

but I did not know that only 8 of these lines are supported, yes I think it would be great if this can be expanded.

 

Thanks again

Oops. It IS 32! I was looking at an old printed version of the manuals -- I am too mean to keep printing new editions! Sorry. It used to be 8 -- it was changed in version 4.80, a couple of years ago!

 

So, assuming you aren't using a pretty old version (check that first please), something else is wrong.

 

I notice here:

 

AlsoManage8=PMDG\PMDG 777X\PanelState\*.FLT.0.rte
 
(for examples), that although there are spaces in the complete pathname, it still works without the " ". So maybe you don't need those " " around lines 9 and 10 after all. Can you try without? (Sorry I'm hypothesising in these matters -- all this code is so old (as am I) that I can't recall it all, and delving into it sometimes takes longer than simply trying things).

Using the latest FSUIPC

 

Pete we got it working :) Success

It works without the " "

 

I will also update my posts in the Aerosoft forum, if anyone is using the info.

The .fms is being managed in the one folder and the .asc files in the other, and only 10 max. Yeah!

 

Thanks,

Joe
