Help needed - How to start different applications time-displaced in wideclient?


Recommended Posts

Hello everyboby,

 

I think I sikped something in the wideFS manual.

 

My setup:

I'm only using the DODO Sim Jet Ranger for FXS

 

FSX:Steam (Server PC), Fsuipc (latest version) on the server pc, wideFs (latest Version) on the client pc

 

The communication between server and client pc runs perfect.

 

Applications on my client pc:

 

checked:

Simkits CCU2 (only runs under 32Bit) - works under wideFS

Sinkits usb controller                           - works under wideFS

 

unchecked (under wideFS):

Ruscool Radio controller software

Ruscool 64 input controller software

Ruscool annunciator controller software

 

 

Start up procedure:

 

1. [Client pc]   - run wideclient

2. [Client pc]   - wideclient starts(runready) the SimKits CCU2 controller software (neccessary: Self-calibration of the gauges)

3. [server pc] - run FSX:ST [and load a flight] - (manually)

4. [server pc] - run the dodsim hardware utilities software - (manually)

5. [Client pc]   - wideclient should start the SimKitsUSB127 Software(Controls the USB gauges) after pressing Key "1"

6. [Client pc]   - wideclient should start the Ruscool radio controller software after pressing Key "2"

7. [Client pc]   - wideclient should start the Ruscool 64inputcontroller software after pressing Key "3"

8. [Client pc]   - wideclient should start the Ruscool annunciator software after pressng Key "4"

9. Happy flying (hopefully)

 

My problem:

I'm not able to write the necessary commands into the wideclient config to use the key pressing commands...

 

All applications start at the same time.

That causes problems.

They should be started time-displaced - OR BETTER - By the announced Key commands.

 

Here s what I put in so far, but even the delay don't work.

It would be grate if somebody may willing to help me out of my mess.

 

The best were to get a script of what to write into the user section.

 

Many thanks in advance!

 

Tommy

Hi Tommy,

 

The delays are not working because all your "delay ready" commands are spelt wrong. Some don't have the numbers after them, some are missing a y.

 

Here's what is should look like:

Run1=C:\Program Files\TRC Development\The Real Cockpit\TRCLink.exe
Delay1=60
RunReady2=C:\Program Files\SimkitsUSB\USBFSUIPCLink.exe
DelayReady2=30
RunReady3=C:\Program Files\Ruscool Electronics Ltd\Radio Displays\Radio Displays.exe
DelayReady3=60
RunReady4=C:\Program Files\Ruscool Electronics Ltd\64 Inputs and Encoders\64 Inputs and Encoders
DelayReady4=30
RunReady5=C:\Program Files\Ruscool Electronics Ltd\Bell 206 Annunciators\Bell 206 Annunciators.exe

From reading the manual, I think this will do what you want.

... and please user the support forum (and not this reserved forum for user contributions) please.

Sorry for that.

 

 

@Paul:

 

Thanks! It was so obviously that I overlooked it.

But it won't work anyway (odd time displacement).

 

Would you be so kindly to follow me to this part of the forum...

 

-> http://forum.simflight.com/topic/79341-help-needed-to-create-keystroke-commands-in-wideclient/

 

...to help me again creating the keystroke commands?

 

That would be great!

 

Thanks

Tommy
