A few issues with RAAS Unlocked version

Recommended Posts

Hi Bryan,

An issue or two I'm having with RAAS.

First, until today I've been using v2.9.37.6. I use the online check for updates option regularly and have always been told there are no updates available, including the last time I tried earlier today. When I visited the forum this evening to post about my second issue (below), I noticed that the latest version is actually 2.9.92.162 which I have now installed. So your check for updates option wasn't working. Version 2.9.37.6 doesn't even appear in the Change Log..

Second, the Enable Key Event API, which I have been trying to use for the last year or so has been working on and off, but not continuously and today I finally got round to looking into it. I think that FS loses focus when RAAS plays an audio file, and when you then send a key command afterwards (before clicking on the FS window), the function will not work. Can you confirm this is the case and possibly introduce a fix? I'm sending the key command through a physical switch.

Thanks,

Charlie K

Hey Charlie,

Very good observation, indeed, if FS looses focus in windows and there is another active window, it may not catch the key command that you are sending, this is very important, however, this condition MAY happen if you are running FS under window-mode, if you are using FS in full screen this shouldn't be an issue, since the active window is FS.

Cheers,

Manuel

Hi Manuel, this happens in P3D full screen mode too, perhaps because it is actually an expanded window-mode. Can you do an update to return the focus to P3D after RAAS has played an audio file?

Yes, I know what you mean. Can you add a checkbox to allow the focus to return to P3D after RAAS plays an audio file then? Otherwise your Enable Key Event API option doesn't really work..
