Just wondering, does it make sense to mess around with the SimConnect XML?

I don't see how that could help.

Gotta wonder what debug switch/flag they left set in the final compile.

I am also confused. I had to call my son to explain discord to me. Then there is all sorts of other forums 

Proudly I will say, as I have deserved my long life... things used to be much simpler back on Compuserve! 

Either way, it seems that things are moving towards the https://forums.flightsimulator.com/ ...

I keep hearing about simconnect being libbed into FSUIPC7 but you can’t run this exe without it.  So the version Of FSUIPC7 which I have must  be older.  I am running version 7.0.0.0 modified on 8/17

It looks like you downloaded from the correct location, or try the other link that was provided there. I would download again, as Pete Dawson updated the file to no longer need the simconnect.dll. Save the .key file, the delete the FSUIPC folder and unzip the newly downloaded version. Copy the backed up .key file ack into the folder, overwriting the existing one.Then you no longer need to add the simconnnect.dll file. But FSUIPC still uses simconnect to communicate with the sim, so the FPS drop is still and issue, till MS/Asobo fixes simconnect.

I hope that helps

For the latest version you need to download again. There's no built-in automatic updating.

Either of the original links will provide the latest file. Both sites are maintained.

Hello everybody,

please excuse the question, but are the problems with the FPS break-ins solved with the current version of FSUIPC?

No, as its an issue with SimConnect, not FSUIPC. We're awaiting a patch to the sim/SDK from Asobo/MSFS to resolve this issue. They are releasing information tomorrow about upcoming patches - hopefully this will be addressed and we'll know more then.

Hi John and Pete,

    first of all, let me thank you guys for all your hard work.

It is appreciated as i've been using your software for a long time now. yes the paid version.

and i plan on using it for a long time to come.

my only issue is below...

 

im a little confused by all this talk about simconnect causing the fps drops.

My simconnect isn't causing any drops at all, i can connect acars to my sim using simconnect and do VA flights no issue.

as soon as i try to connect it using fsuipc7 (latest Version) my frames drop from 60-100 down to 10-20

 

and if fsuipc doesnt need to use simconnect now, why am i still getting fps drops?

from where i sit, simconnect isn't an issue.

It has been confirmed that it is an issue.

Your ACARS is probably just sipping droplets of data via the 32-bit SimConnect compared to all the things FSUIPC has to do.

Of course FSUIPC uses SimConnect. It just doesn't need the SimConnect.dll any more as it is now compiled against the static SimConnect.lib file.

ahh, now that makes sense.

no wonder i was getting confused. i was confusing simconnect.dll with simconnect in general.

thank you for clearing that up for me.

By the way, Discord is super... really like it and it reminds me of Compuserve in several ways.

Thanks for the information. Let's hope that the problem will be solved as soon as possible. I had bought the AddOn "A Pilot's Life" and wanted to use it in connection with FSUIPC, but due to the FPS breakdowns this is not possible.

Thanks in any case for your work.

It seems the simconnect problems should be solved in next weeks update. It is mentioned in todays Asobo press release for the update path.
