A tip for those running OpusFSI and FSX

Recommended Posts

My father in Law is an Avid Simmer, me, not so much.

He came to me with a problem, OpusFSI steals focus from FSX when auto starts and shrinks FSX to the task bar, thus interupting his session. He always runs FSX in the full screen mode.  He also starts OpusFSI from within FSUIPC (Paid version 4. something).

I search all the forums and found no solution there.

His line in FSUIPC was


So what I did just as an experiment was to create a new shortcut in the OpusFSI folder named FSISERVER.EXE - Shortcut and set the properties of the shortcut to run Minimized.

Then I changed the FSUIPC command line to


Walla, it works every time without OpusFSI stealing focus and shrinking the full screen FSX.

Sure enough, the Sim starts with clear weather, it was raining here, and we hit the Update weather on the menu bar, and down came the rain.

Hope this helps.  I couldn't find a solution anywhere.
