Updated Modules

Recommended Posts

Note that mostly this Announcement will contain only the changed modules. You will almost always need the main release installed first. For those please also check http://www.schiratti.com/dowson

The FS modules here, when supplied without Installer, need copying into the FS modules folder once extracted.

Please note the format here. The links for all the updates are listed first. For interim releases only, notes about changes are listed separately, below.

 

FOR FS9 AND EARLIER ONLY

Install complete FSUIPC version 3.999z9b Install FSUIPC 3.999z9b for FS9 and before
-- For changes see the History document in the full install update.

FSUIPC version 3.999z9b only, for those with 3.999z1 or later already installed FSUIPC 3.999z9b
-- Fixes an ancient and obscure bug which nevertheless can crash FS on loading with certain INI file arrangements.
-- The z9b update merely enables Registrations purchased after the end of 2015 to work. The new registration period now applies till the end of 2025.

 

PFC driver version 2.41 for FS9 and earlier PFC 2.41
(ZIP includes documentation)

 

FOR FSX, FSX-SE and Prepar3D

Install complete FSUIPC version 4.974 Install FSUIPC4.974 for FSX, FSX-SE and Prepar3D versions 2.5, 3.0 - 3.4 (32-bit only: all versions to date of release)
Changes since 4.96 are now included in the History document in the FSUIPC Documents folder supplemented by the Changes document in the ZIP.

FSUIPC 4.974b DLL only, for current 4.974 users FSUIPC4974b.zip
-- This interim update provides an improved Lua ext library. Those included functions operating on external application windows now more reliably find and act on the top level window, as generally necessary to have effective keyboard and state changes (min/max etc) recognised and acted upon.

 

FOR Prepar3D 4 (64-bit)

Install complete FSUIPC version 5.14 Install FSUIPC5.14
This is the 64-bit version. Please see the History document installed for you in the FSUIPC Documents folder for details of the changes since the very first release, 5.10.
IMPORTANT: 5.124 and later versions are only suitable for use with P3D version 4.1 and later!  They will not work correctly with version 4.0.

N.B. An up-to-date list of assignable P3D4 controls is now produced automatically, in the PDF Documents folder, each time FSUIPC5 is used with a new build of P3D.

Version 5.14 consolidates all recent changes, plus those below.
Please see the FSUIPC5 History pdf for more details.
-- wxstationlist.bin file deleted at session end, to try to prevent loading problems next time
-- Lua sound.path now accepts system paths such as %APPDATA%
-- Taxi-out AI traffic freeze controls implemented (with a Lua example application supplied)
-- Lua functions ipc.setdisplay and ipc.getdisplay made to work with the SimConnect Message Window

FSUIPC 5.141e DLL only, for current 5.14 users FSUIPC5141e.zip
-- Lua ipc.setdisplay and ipc.setowndisplay made to work consistently, and enhanced
-- Allowed for a zero Vendor ID (VID) in the Lua com.openhid function.
-- 5.141e fixes a problem with the new RudderBlendLowest facility.

 

PFCFSX driver for FSX, FSX-SE and P3D, and
PFCcom64 driver for P3D version 4

PFCFSX+PFCcom64
-- minor updates for FSX
-- 64-bit version for use with P3D 4 included

 

FOR ANY FS or its DERIVATIVES (but use on FS2002 and before not supportable)

WideFS version 7.151 WideFS 7.151
(Note, the WideServer.DLL module is ONLY used on FS9 and before and is not updated in this release)

WideClient 7.151 WideClient 7.151

-- 6.999z3 adds more facilities to the Lua "wnd" library - title, show and hide. (See latest Lua docs)
-- 7.14 includes a variety of minor changes, with the only one likely to be noticed by most users being that ButtonScreens are fully drawn on connection even on current Windows and video driver versions.
-- 7.141 fixes a possible "DATA REQUESTS OVERFLOW" problem with clients
-- also:  includes improved Lua ext library functionality, more reliably finding the top level Window in an application so that messages and state changes will take effect.
-- also:  supports 64-bit applications using the 64-bit "64-bit External User kit for C/C++" available in the Useful Additional Programs thread.
-- 7.145 adds new support for Lua "textmenu" plugins, with a package of such plug-ins included.
-- 7.146 fixes a small bug in the Lua TextMenu local File display option, and includes improved plug-ins
