FSUIPC stops working when flying over the ocean


Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

Whenever I fly in the PMDG T7 over the ocean, FSX SE pauses every 5 seconds for about 10 seconds (so that would be 5 seconds of flying, then 10 seconds nothing, 5 seconds flying, 10 seconds nothing and so on). When I open te addon menu bar FSUIPC disappeared and when I reach land again, the pausing stops, but FSUIPC isn't back in the addon menubar and all my controls are gone. I have the latest version installed, could FSUIPC be the problem or should I ask PMDG what I could do about it? I don't have this problem in the PMDG MD11

Not sure why the Ocean should have anything to do with it, but it sounds like your system is so overloaded that SimConnect communications a failing.

 

Two things to try. First disable FSUIPC's autosave (or any other autosave program you might be using) -- the PMDG save routines do freeze the sim whilst collecting data and creating files.

 

Second you can try extending the timeout in FSUIPC so it isn't quite so critical of SimConnect responses. This is the "SimConnectStallTime" value in FSUIPC4.INI, and it defaults to 1 (1 second). Try increasing it. Initially try 10, then, if that works reduce it until it fails again, then increase it one notch.
