Focus shift from IvAp to FSC/ FSX avoidable? (answered)

Recommended Posts

The focus shift (always back to FSX, or back to FSC) should not be a problem. To me, flying on Ivao on line, it very often is.

When connected with the communication app IvAp and I use text, the waypoint shift of FSC makes the focus shift from IvAp to FSC to FSX (I assume). What happens is that when writing text (when there is no live ATC or when communicating with a fellow pilot) focus suddenly shifts to FSX,  my next key presses that should´ve been a part of the message in the comm window of IvAp becomes key presses in FSX. An R or shift r may change the simualtion rate, the w changes the view, the t activates transponder and so on.

Anyone but me disturbed by this? Can the focus switch be avoided by a command or is an FSC-update with that option in settings possible, Volker??

Hello Tommy,

The theme is as old as Windows and FligfhtSim Commander.
Short answer: NO!
Workaround ... disable Move the map instead of the aircraft and ...
set a high value for Refresh the map (seconds) example 600 or 900 seconds.

The chances are getting smaller that the event Focus occurs

Regards,

Volker

btw.
Hint: Keep the FSC always up to date. The current version is 9.7.5.

Thank you for fast answer. About update: I tried the update 9.7.5, but had problems with the distance arc descending and climbing. Maybe that is because I have not installed all updates in between. Going from 9.6.8 to 9.7.5 might be to large a step? I have 9.7 but that needs 9.6.9 before install which I don't have. And there is no install read me with the 9.7.5 update so I am unclear what is needed from earlier versions. Started the 9.7.5 exe install file to check for info but that stopped when it recognized an earlier version, and no hints about what should be done.

The downloaded file FSC975.zip contains a complete, new installation.
In this case, all previous updates are included.
Changes of all versions are documented.
Revisions are not documented.

Using this installation requires uninstalling the old version.
We strongly recommend creating a backup of the complete folder of the FlightSim Commander.
Regardless of this, it's absolutely necessary to save the following files externally.


\ register.fsc

\ fsccolor.ini
\ fsc.ini
\ User \ Blackbox
\ User \ Logbook.fsc
\ User \ aircraft.fsc
\ User \ BuddyIvao.fsc
\ User \ BuddyVatsim.fsc
\ Flightplan \ FSC
\ Database \ UserWP.txt
\ Database \ UserObj.txt


These files must be copied back to their original location before restarting your FlightSim Commander.

 

Regards,

Volker
