FSUIPC5.15 corrupted macro file

Recommended Posts

Hi,

With P3D4.4 mouse macros are working great and it's a very good thing after waiting so long. But I discovered today I have a bug with macro file recording which is similar to the one we had with the first FSUIPC5 version supporting mouse macros (entries are truncated). In fact it's not exactly the same thing as the bug affects only "sub entries" of my single macro file.

Here's an extract of my file MACROS.MCRO I'm using for several aircraft:

[Macros]
1=MD82_TERR=RX400000a9,3
2=AV_TMSTO=RX2040f805,3
3=AV_TMSCR=RX2040f806,3
4=AV_TMSCL=RX2040f807,3
5=AV_FLCHG=RX20413000,3
6=AV_VS=RX20412800,3
7=AV_LOC=RX20414800,3

.....

32=BA_FMSPWR
32.1=RX2080d004,3
32.2=RX400000c1,3

33=BA_LNAV=RX2040c800,3
34=BA_STA=RX2080c806,3
35=BA_APT=RX2080c807,3
36=BA_WPT=RX2080c808,3
37=BA_TCASON=RX40000048,1
38=BA_TCASOFF=RX40000048,3
39=BA_RWYLTS=RX40000036,3
40=ERJ_AVIO
40.1=RX2080000c,3
40.2=RX2080000d,3
40.3=RX20800041,3
40.4=RX20800042,3

41=ERJ_STORE=RX20800053,3
......

Since I have set macros with multiple entries (in bold above), these lines are corrupted as soon as I'm adding a new macro. All the other entries stay good. If I'm updating one of these multiple entries macro (ERJ_AVIO for example), all existing sub entries are corrupted except the one I just added.

Hopefully I keep an up to date copy of my macro file elsewhere so I can restore the corrupted lines each time I'm updating this file with new macros but if you can solve the problem it would be great.

Thanks, Skip.

BTW, what version of FSUIPC5 are you using? The latest (supported) version is 5.15.

Hi John,

I'll double check this evening at home in case some addon installed an older version silently but I'm pretty sure it's the 5.15 I'm using. If you want my macro file to make a test just let me know.

John,

I confirm I'm using FSUIPC5.15 and here are the outputs of a little test I just made:

- P3D4.4 startup with correct unique macro file (MACROS - Before.MCRO attached)
- After loading an aircraft I just added a new macro to MACROS (ERJ_NDMODE)
- Just after ending the mouse macro session the saved file is corrupted but the new macro is there (MACROS - After.MCRO attached)

I also attached the log of this session.

Regards, Skip.

Hi Skip,

can you try the following dll please - unzip and use to replace the one in you Modules folder:

FSUIPC5150e.zip

Cheers,

Hi John,

It's fixed with this new DLL. Thank you very much.
