Save state of VAS logging window?

Recommended Posts

Is it possible to save the size and position of the VAS logging window in P3D2.5. It always starts with the green bar across the screen and I must resize and move it.


Sorry, I don't know how you are logging it there? That's the FS message window, I think? Doesn't it get defined in the FS/P3D CFG file someplace?


Easiest would be via a little Lua plug-in with its own display. They are sizeable and positionable. Or best on a separate PC via WideFS. Here's the one I use, which runs under WideClient and shows frame rate and VAS free. You'll need to set the window position and size in the wn.opn function (the four numbers are x,y,cx,cy):

w = wnd.open("VAS Monitor", WND_FIXED, 2455,1075,425,100)
wnd.backcol(w, 0x000)
wnd.textcol(w, 0x6c0)
wnd.font(w, WND_ARIAL,-2)

-- Update the display at 500 msec intervals (see event at end)
function mytimer(time)


    fr = ipc.readUW(0x0274)
    if fr ~= 0 then fr = 32768/fr end
    fr = math.floor((fr * 10) + 0.5)/10
    mem = ipc.readUD(0x024C)
    memmb = math.floor((mem/1024) + 0.5)
    wnd.text(w, "Frame Rate " .. fr .. " fps\nVAS free " .. memmb .. " Mb")


-- Adjust timing to taste: 500 = 1/2 second
event.timer(500, "mytimer")

I am using offset 024C Type S32 with FS WIndow checked 


I don't think there's any way of telling FS to save a different position for that window. But try re-positioning it, then saving a flight. Theoretically it MAY just get restored to the same place on a flight reload.


But don't hold me to it. If the ATIS and other messages can't be so re-positioned, then neither can these!
