Paul, this is awesome, is it an open source project at all?

Thanks. It's not open source. I actively maintain the library in terms of fixing bugs and adding new features requested by users.

Paul,

 I'm using FSX with Carrier Convoy Planner 1.3.4.2. My flight controls are using the paid version of FSUIPC.  If I start up FSX and start flying all the buttons and controls work correctly.  But if i startup CCP and FSX, some of my buttons (landing gears) do not work. It seems that when i press the button the HUD mode changes instead. I check to see if FSX controller is on but its not enabled. I know that CCP is using your FSUIPCClient.dll, so I was wondering if you have seen this issue before/

 

Thanks,

Steve

Hi Steve,

I'm not familiar with CCP at all.

Are the original devs are not around any more? They would be the best people to ask.

If you can't contact them, you can send me an FSUIPC log with these options enabled (only these):

  • IPC Writes
  • Button and Key Operations
  • Events (non axis-controls)

(See the logging tab in the FSUIPC dialog).

I'll be able to tell you if CCP is intercepting any buttons or key presses. With the logging enabled, run FSX/CCP and reproduce the error. Then close FSX and show me the contents of the FSUIPC4.log from the modules folder. Please start a new thread in this sub-forum if you do.

Paul
