Individual delays for starting 'programs' ?

Recommended Posts

Apologies if this has been covered before. I've been using the advanced feature of FSUIPC to run (and close) additional programs together with a delay for one application in particular that needs it (I've also discovered that I can specify "Delay = 20" at the end of the [Programs] section to increase the default 10 second delay - very handy). I wonder if it is possible to specify individual delays for each program that needs it. I occasionally see programs get tangled as they all start at the same time.

Many thanks.

Blimey, how did you discover that? I see its not documented and didn't know about this! I'll check and update the documentation.

Not possible at the moment I'm afraid. I could make the DELAY option take a parameter (i.e. DELAY=<n>) in the Run/RunIf options. However, we're pretty busy at the moment and it will take a while fo me to get around to this. I've flagged this and will look into it when time permits.

Cheers,

John

Accidentally. I can't even remember what prompted me. The software for my FDS CDU needs to wait for the PMDG to fully load (~20 seconds) before it will connect properly, so I think I just tried it based on a hunch.

I think a delay parameter would be useful with the plethora of temperamental additional programs that some of us home cockpit hacks are running.

Not a show stopper though - thanks for considering.

Paul.

@pluckasHi Paul,

I have added an optional parameter to the DELAY option, so you can use DELAY=<n> where <n> is an integer between 1 and 60. When the parameter is not present, the default will be used.

Could you try the following dll please: 
    FSUIPC6.dll

Thanks,

John

P.S. If you are using FSUIPC5, let me know and I'll update and post that. Not possible now for earlier versions.
