FS2004 Internal

Recommended Posts

I hear everyone talking about switching the setting to Internal in the styles menu but I for some reason do not have that option. I am using registered FSUIPC and when I go to the style menu it only gives me the option of FSUIPC and the FS2004 Internal is shaded out. Any one have any ideas?

This is straight out of the gate nothing set up other than an initial flynow I just tried deleting the fs9.cfg and that didn't help I am thinking I will need to complete re-install. There is no multi set up and there are no other programs setup. I also had a problem a little bit ago where when I took the runway and spooled up and then pressed to/ga I had both engines fail and I could not restart them. I think it may be a problem with the initial setup on my system.

No Tim my traffic is set to 100% I can see the other aircraft sitting at their gates so I know that they are there. I have tried to switch it at multiple points 1. soon as I am sitting at the gate. 2. After I set up a multiplayer 3. After I test the tcas. 4. After I am airbourne. Nothing works and it apears that I am the only one that this is happening to. I also am noticing that my FPS have droped I was getting locked at 30 with 1.3 and now with the 800's installed I am getting 20-24 just sitting at the gate. I think I have a corrupted install I am going to uninstall and start from scratch tonight hopefully that will work.

That was my initial thought on this....as to multiplayer, I have found that if you use the FSUIPC option then a 3rd party utility such as AIBridge is required to see the others....not sure if this is true for VATSIM, IVAO, SB...etc......But if you are in a private multiplayer I have found that using the FS2004 internal allows the players to see each other without any 3rd party utility. I'm not sure why since AI is not active during these sessions, BUT I'm not going to try and 'fix'....read break it......:D Best, Paul M

Ok,I deleted my fs9.cfg and it is still shaded out. I then removed the NG using the removal tool and re-installed 1.2, restarted, then 1.3,restarted, then 800/900, restarted, Istalled my sid/stars 0403, and then restarted. It is still shaded out. Where is the data for the styles menu wrote to, is it in the cfg file or somewhere else I want to see if there is something that it set to 0 when it should be set to 1. Any ideas? I am able to see trafic but as far as I can tell I don't get the RA I was 1.5nm from an AI and on crash coarse and didn't even have the indication turn yellow. when the tcas is set to ta/ra I see TFC on my ND but never have I seen a warning. I don't know if this is all related or not but I thiought I would throw it in.

Hey Jeremy,The data is stored in the file 737gauges.ini found in folder PMDG. Look for the entry:{TCAS}Source=0Source=0 is for FSUIPC (it's supposed to be square brackets around TCAS).Sorry I can't help more, I've never had a problem with it.While I'm here, what is the difference between setting FSUIPC and FS Internal? I didn't see any explanation of it in the new manuals. I've still got mine set to FSUIPC (I'm using a registered version BTW) and see AI fine also get alerts without problem aswell.CheersDavid

Jeremy-I can tell you pretty authoritatevely that it means FSUIPC cannot detect that you're running FS2004. (I wrote the code, I should know :-) ). I cannot help on why FSUIPC doesn't detect it... but it doesn't.Cheers,

Wee Davie,you don't need AIBridge when set to Internal, that's the Beaut.

Hey Paul,That's great news, the firewall I have doesn't like AIBridge. I suppose I could have written to the author to see which ports it uses but I never got round to it.So what are the differences between them? If Internal works for both on and off line why do we need the FSUIPC option? Could it simply be to add support for programs that inject the AI data directly to FSUIPC (the main one I'm talking about is SB3 when it comes out)?CheersDavid

Do you have TrafficInfo.dll in your FS9Modules folder?The internal option uses TrafficInfo.dll to read position info from the MP session. The FSUIPC option reads position info from FSUIPC, which generally means you need AIBridge to transfer MP traffic to FSUIPC.My suspicion is that the FSUIPC option will be better when SB3 comes out since SB3 will be able to potentially inject more traffic than it can install into the MP session.Lee Hetherington, PP-ASEL (KBED)
