Autosave feature responsible for stutters in P3D v4

Recommended Posts

Use of the autosave feature in FSUIPC5 induces stutters in P3D v4.4. In my case, unchecking the autosave fonction in FSUIPC has cured this annoying problem. Is it just my rig or has anyone else face the same problem. Be glad to hear from others. Thank you. Roger

MOVED FROM "FAQ" SUBFORUM TO SUPPORT FORUM, the proper place for SUPPORT!

It is little to do with FSUIPC. All the facility does is call the SimConnect facilty to save a flight. It is, in fact, exactly the same as using the menu to do so, or using the Ctrl+; shortcut 9I think that's the one).

Any "stuftter" this may cause is directly realted to one or both of two things:

1. The use of sohisticated add-on aircraft such as PMDG ones which also then freeze the sim whilst they collect the data from their assorted subsystems so that they can save that too.

2. A slow or nearly full disk, or one in need of de-fragmenting, plus a lack of sufficient free memory for a decent cache.

Both of these applies no matter how you save a flight. There's no way FSUIPC can avoid either. The actual code in FSUIPC is pretty much merely the call to SimConnect.

The subject is virtually flogged to death, especially on the AVSIM forums. Go take a look.
