Re: Setting MIP with P3d and FSUIPC

I run OC4BAv4 software on 1 PC using 1 GPU GTX 1070 + TH2Go to fill main view and all MIP screens.

No need for 2nd PC or ProSim as I use PMDG B737NGX. Simpler, cheaper and better than other solutions.

How to move active airplane to another location?

Is there a SimConnnect "way" to move active airplane to another location either by help of GPS cordinates or runway/gates data. I am not looking for the usual way of selecting a new start point and having P3D to reload everything, but e.g. as done with the slewing function and additional position da...

Re: Scenario location mismatch

I see this as a BUG that LM should clear.
When loading a saved scenario, the scenario page should reflect the data in the scenario file(fxml) as this data is the ones that are used when the you hit the "OK". The Weather and Time/Season data are also not correct.

Re: Scenario location mismatch

Just to clarify a little more.

When loading the scenario that has the aircraft at the start of the runway, P3D says RAMP CARGO, but when hitting OK
it loads and start correctly at runway.

So it loads and start at the correct place, but P3D says RAMP CARGO.

Re: Scenario location mismatch

Ohh, forgot that.

I am using the latest v4.5 Client.

The saved scenario is from v4.4, maybe that is the problem?

Scenario location mismatch

When loading a saved scenario to P3D, the location window shows not the correct location.

It happens on both default and addon airports.

See attached image where loaded airplane's coordinates is start of runway 0L at ESSA, but P3D says RAMP CARGO.

[RESOLVED] Undocking panels/displays in airplane to other monitors gives huge drop in FPS

I know this issue has been addressed here and in other forums several times, but I am not sure of the official status of this issue. As we are now soon in version 4.4 and still have this issue I wonder what is LM's statement on this: 1. Is the issue a P3Dv4 issue or an addon airplane issue? 2. Or is...

Re: Windows Definition is disabled in View menu

Thanks,

Got it fixed and enabled again after pasting in the text:

<Name>Top-left Corner</Name>
<Position>0,0</Position>
<Size>1024,1024</Size>
<Docked>True</Docked>

between the <WindowDefinition> lines in the xml file.

Without this definition the menu is disabled.

Lesson learned.

Re: Windows Definition is disabled in Views menu

In P3D's menu bar there is a "Views" menu. In this menu there is sub menu "Window Definitions".

When I first started up the P3Dv4.3 I could access this sub menu, but not any longer. How do I get it back to create new windows?

Windows Definition is disabled in View menu

In P3Dv4.3 I had the Windows Definition enabled in View menu. But after deleting the only window there I can not access the function anymore. How do I enable it again?

You only need to disable the "Overlay" if NVIDIA Experience is running.

Re: Loading "Prepar3D Scenario" screen signal available in SDK?

Thanks for your fast replay. But, using SimConnect_FlightLoad do not solve what I want to accomplish. SimConnect_FlightLoad will only work when you have an active flight loaded and the sim is running, not when the sim is in UI screen "mode". This means you first have to load a default plane + scener...
