Little problem


Recommended Posts

Hi Paul,

 

i write you to discuss about a little problem related to, probably, to yours DLL.

 

In my sofware i've implemented a timer who every one minute takes,

from FSX, aircraft's latitude and longitude and writes these on a database.

 

So, sometimes, happens that, but i'm not able to say you what is the "x-factor", the latitude/logitude reads from FSX are always the same, equal to each other and then, after about 100 reads, DLL stops to give data to my software. Any type of data. In other words DLL becomes silent.

 

Have you any ideas about? Can you help me?

 

I think that it's a problem related to saturation, what you think about?

 

Thanks in advance, regards.

Hi Emanuele,

 

Could you please try with the latest version of the DLL attached; just in case the version you have has a problem.

 

Some things to check...

 

1. In your code, make sure that the declaration of the offsets only happens once. For example, they are declared at the top of a form and not inside the timer loop.

 

2. Please look in the FSUIPC4.Log file (in your modules folder) to see if there are any problems reported there after you get bad data or freezing. If you are using WideClient then you also need to look at the Wideserver.log on the server and the Wideclient.log on the client. If you're not sure about the contents of the logs, paste them in here and Pete can have a look for you.

 

3. In the FSUIPC Interface can you please log the Lon/Lat offsets to the FSX window. When your program is getting the 'stuck' values (not changing) do the values on the screen also get stuck or are they ok?

 

4. Similar to 3: Please run FSInterrogator.exe (found in the FSUIPC_SDK) alongside your program. When your program gets bad data or stops responding does FSInterrogator.exe also have problems or not?

 

These things will help narrow down where the problem is. It could be my DLL or it could be simconnect having problems.

About point 2, i'll paste a LOG file regarding the problem above.

Thanks for help

I can't see anything obviously wrong with the log.

 

I notice you are not using the latest version of FSUIPC (4.939n). You could try updating to see if that helps. You can download the new installer here....

 

http://forum.simflight.com/topic/66139-updated-modules/

 

Otherwise you'll have to try some of the other tests.

Hi Paul,
 

probably it's an FSX's error because the screen becomes little gray (FSX doen't responds). But FSX doesn't generate an error or OOM. Coordinates stops to updates for 3/4 minutes, then restarts again while program of mine it's not able to speech to FSX again.

Hi Bruno,

 

Can you reset your flight situation go to your fsx.cg and delete situation like mine:

[USERINTERFACE]
PageID=1
OpenATCOnCreate=0
SHOW_MISSION_CAPTIONS=1
PAUSE_ON_LOST_FOCUS=0
PROMPT_ON_EXIT=1
SITUATION=C:\Users\WinDEV\Documents\Fichiers Flight Simulator X\Defaut
Map_Orientation=2
ShowAllACPaintSchemes=1
SelectAircraftManufacturer=Tous
SelectAircraftPublisher=Tous
SelectAircraftType=Tous
DisplayFuelAsWeight=1

Maybe your *.FLT is corrupt So try to change your aircraft and make a try

 

Regards,

 

Fred
