Need Help with Directing RC4

Recommended Posts

I have got RC4 up and ready to go, but when I go to rebuild scenery DB and type the path I get an error message.  I'm using FSX:SE and this is the path I'm typing in:  D:\Program Files (x86)\Steam.

I also tried D:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\FSX.  Where am I going wrong?

Hi...

From the RC FAQ:

Are you entering a "trailing" "\" onto the FS path?

Scott

No, I was not, but I'll give it a try.  Thanks, Scott

Edit:  Just tried that but that didn't work either.

Hi...

Oh - maybe I had it backwards...

Here is the complete FAQ entry:

 

Quote

I'm getting "runtime error 6 overflow" rebuilding the scenery DB, after the 4.3 upgrade

First things to check are:

  • Did you copy the makerwys.exe from the upgrade zip, into the fs9 root directory (where the fs9.exe is located), and the fsX root directory (where the fsx.exe is located?)
  • Did you copy the rcv4.exe into the rcv4 directory
  • Did you rebuild the scenery database the first time you ran rcv4.exe?
  • If you are using a shortcut on your desktop to launch rcv4.exe, is it pointing to the correct path?
  • When asked where the FS directory is, did you enter the correct path to the root directory of the applicable FS version?
  • Are you entering a "trailing" "\" onto the FS path? IOW, "c:\flight\fs2004\" - try "c:\flight\fs2004" for example

Scott

Sorry Scott, this rant is not directed at you.  But, ARE YOU KIDDING ME!!!!   Why did I buy this program if I have to rebuild the freaking thing myself????   I'm not an IT guy, I don't have a clue as to what all this stuff is I'm supposed to do.  I guess it's asking too much for someone who develops these programs to just give us a registration key and expect it to work.  Too late now, the money is gone.  If I gotta go thru all of this I'll never get this program to work.  Thought it was supposed to be easier to use than PF3.  I can't even get it to work, let alone use it.

Here are my paths for FS9 and Steam FSX. I keep them in notepad to paste in as needed . Be sure there are no leading  or trailing space characters.

In order to accommodate each user's setup, RC can not predict what your path entries will be.

 Be sure you are using the latest makerwys.exe from:

http://forum.simflight.com/topic/66136-useful-additional-programs/

and also the correct fsuipc from:

http://forum.simflight.com/topic/80977-updated-modules/

reading the descriptions to choose the correct one.

Overwrite the older versions that came with the installation.

I'm using Win 7 Pro 64 bit.

Ronzie, I gotta be honest here.  Those links, I have no clue as to which one to use.  I'm a computer moron.  I was fortunate to get RC4 installed as I found a post here on how to install the .dll file.  But one of the guys was good enough in his post to make a step by step procedure, or I would never have figured it out.  I'm using Windows 10 and I have the full version of FSUIPC installed.  But unless someone gives me a step by step procedure, this ain't gonna happen.  Sorry, for the hassle guys.  I'm a retired Air Force flight engineer, not a computer IT guy.

Hello all.

I have followed the instructions to the letter.

Have just installed P3dv4.

Running RCv4 I get the warning "IPC request contains bad data"

Any ideas anyone?

Best regards

David

Hmmm, I'd be surprised. This is mentioned in the FAQs here. http://www.jdtllc.com/FAQ.htm#25

FSUIPC is probably not up to date.

Hi Folks,

Yeah - I just fired up RC4 for the first time this weekend on my new v4 install - didn't change a thing in RC4 from v3 and it seemed to work... The window opened and I could communicate with ground and tower... Didn't get a chance to run a full flight though... I do have an up to date version of FSUIPC...

Regards,
Scott

That's great Scott.  I just finally got RC4 up and running.  I'm making some mistakes but enjoy using it.

I still get chided on occasions and I've been flying with it for 11 years! Those controllers need a quiet word in their ears sometimes. :biggrin:

Hi Folks,

Yeah - still fly every IFR flight with it... Adding Voice Attack to the mix so I can verbally interact with RC4 - never having to punch the keyboard - adds an entirely new level to RC4...

Scott

Scott, you made that statement "never having to punch the keyboard" I just got RC4 up and running.  Could you please explain how I can do that.  That is exactly what I am looking for.

Hi...

Voice Attack is the best $10.00 utility I ever bought - use it in various sims - not just FS... It's a voice control program that has the most intuitive interface I've ever seen in this type of program... Makes it easy to setup any commands you want - it will perform simple keystrokes, joystick button presses, complex macros, and has it's own powerful scripting language... It can verbally respond to use using any Windows voices you have loaded on your machine... I use for a full blown copilot, commanding my TrackIR, and RC4 ATC interactions... 

In this context - I have mine setup to just press the needed keystrokes for RC4... When I want the want the weather - I just say "weather" - if I want to speak to ground - I just say "ground"... I use "roger" and "roger wilco" for the routine "1" and "7" keys... Obviously - you need to be in the proper spot in RC4 to utilize these commands... It just sure beats hunting for keys during critical phases of flight... From start to finish - I don't press a single key in RC4... Granted you need a good headset and microphone to utilize it..

I believe they have a demo: http://voiceattack.com/

Scott

Thanks Scott, I appreciate your help. I'll definately check it out.  That is how I want to fly.  I guess the key is figuring out how to program it.  Thanks again.

Hi Rodger,

If you decide you like it - I can share my profile - it’s a big head start and might show you what it’s capable of...

Just ping me if needed...

Hey Scott, I just purchased VoiceAttack.  I would really appreciate the profile.  That would be awesome.  Thanks.

Hi Rodger,

I’m not in front of my PC - won’t have access until the weekend as I’m traveling - this is a real old profile but it probably has some of the RC4 stuff in it - take a gander - might get you started... Probably has a bunch of proprietary stuff for one of my favorite planes - the  Flysimware Lear 35A - but it’s super easy to customize for your own needs...

On the bottom left of the interface - when looking at commands - will sort by category - makes sorting through commands a bit easier...

https://www.dropbox.com/s/495bz5yrasv6htk/SCO P3D-Profile.zip?dl=0

There was a VA profile for RC4 floating around somewhere more advanced than mine - maybe someone can link it...

Oh - and you need to run VA as admin - to get it to interact with P3D properly... I run all my P3D stuff as admin...

Regards,

Scott

Outstanding.  One more question.  Not real good with computers.  Do I unzip the file and put it into VA?

I think Scott makes Voice Attack key commands.

Enter a voice command e.g. "select menu one". Then in the command interface of Voice Attack enter "Ctrl+shift+1". Voice Attack then executes the keys Ctrl+shift+1, when you say "select menu one".

Multi Crew Experience has a voice link to RC4 as well. You can use a PTT key and speak to RC4. 

I just converted to P3dv4. Still having trouble with MCE link to RC4. I can use keyboard or Voice Attack, but have lost the MCE voice interface with RC4??? Work in progress!:huh:

Cheers.
