USE TIME FOR FLIGHTS Issue


Recommended Posts

Hi Peter,

I have a strange Issue with loading saved flights and using the system date.

My Installation:

********* FSUIPC4, Version 4.959 (19th December 2016) by Pete Dowson *********
Windows version reported as 6.2.?.9200    (WIN 10 - Version1607 -  Build 14393.576)
Prepar3D.exe version = 3.4.18.19475

Use System Time for Flights is enabled and avaible in the FSUIPC.INI
 

 

My Problem:

System Time: 07.01.17 - 15:34
Saved Flight: 23.05.16 - 10:44
loaded Flight 23.05.17 - 16:34 (Scenario - Load)

Seems that the flight is loaded and only the year is reset - Time +1 Hour from System time.

 

Any Suggestions?

 

Here the Part my log:

Here, with Windows 7, I get the right time but the date is wonky. Logging events I see

   712643 \\LEFT\Prepar3D v3\SimObjects\Airplanes\B737_800\Boeing737-800.air
   712659 *** EVENT: Cntrl= 66078 (0x0001021e), Param= 2017 (0x000007e1) ZULU_YEAR_SET

   712659 *** EVENT: Cntrl= 66075 (0x0001021b), Param= 16 (0x00000010) ZULU_HOURS_SET

   712659 \\LEFT\Documents\Prepar3D v3 Files\Test at EGLL.flt

which I would have expected P3D to ignore in favour of keeping whatever it has set. I'll check what is happening, but could you repeat the test but with Event logging enabled in FSUIPC's logging tab. I'm curious as to what different rubbish the day is set to.

The hour is Summer Time (or Daylight Saving Time) because of the date. (The date is derived from the DAY number. There are no month/day settings).

Okay. Found it.  It goes weird for January, and is a month out the rest of the year.

Not many folks can use this facility, or if they do they don't check the resulting date, as it looks like it's always been wrong! Thanks for reporting it.

It'll be fixed in an interim update I'll probably release on Monday. Check the Download Links subforum.
