Will this work with FS2020 Once FSUIPC is Out ?

Recommended Posts

I think it may.

Other stuff that uses simconnect appear to have a degree of functionality... Hoping it may work.

Guess it depends how different FSUIPC is, as it cannot use the usual DLL file system.

Guess I'm being a bit too optimistic !?

Impossible to say at this early stage. A version of MakeRunways is needed to gather the data RC uses. Without that it won't. Ask on FSUIPC forum.

Yes, I know what you mean but, last night,  "The Grumpy One" gave a perfectly reasonable reply to a question about a new version of the vital MakeRunways here: MakeRunways For MSFS 2020

MakeRunways 5.00 is available for MSFS now (thanks Pete). I know it also needs FSUIPC7 but that is also available in MSFS. Does anyone know if Radar Contact needs anything else.

Frustratingly, RC4 *almost* works in MSFS. The main problem is that the display window functionality doesn't appear to work. As you can't see the available options you can try to guess which one to select to continue with the flight, but that's very hit-and-miss. Unless someone can get that working it looks like it may be no-go.

Gents, be aware I don’t have MFS and have no plans to buy it. By all means report your experiences here and help each other.

Have you tried to use ShowText to view the menu?

Hi Bob,

I haven't tried this yet - I will at some point but I'm not sure when as RL is getting in the way at the moment.

I've finally had a bit of time to do some more testing.

Firstly Bob - thanks for the suggestion about ShowText. That does allow RC4's menu to be displayed correctly. TBH I haven't been simming for at least a decade so I'd forgotten about that one.

However, there are still major issues preventing an enjoyable experience with MSFS.

  • The aircraft's altitude isn't being picked up by RC4 correctly. Initially this results in being called out 4 times for busting the altitude assignment, with the consequent threat of being visted by Flight Standards 😄. Thereafter it still doesn't seem right - for example when being handed off from one cotroller to another (in the climb!) you get something ridiculous like 'out of FL560 for FL210'.
  • Maybe because of the above, every few seconds you get a 'Your assigned altitude is ...' throughout the flight, which must be acknowledged. Even if comms are handed to Otto this becomes very wearing.
  • A semi-transparent '(!) Tips' box is constantly on the screen, even if all assist options are turned off. This must be due to the interaction between RC4/FSUIPC/ShowText, which I guess uses the same display routines in MSFS as the flight tips.
  • Weather etc. is not being reported properly, so for example ATIS reports temperature 0 dewpoint 0 QNH 0000.

There may be more problems - I don't know as I didn't get to do a complete flight, due to a CTD. Consequently, I'm not sure how the descent is handled by RC4, but I guess with all of the above there may be significant issues. The CTD wasn't anything to do with RC4, FSUIPC or ShowText, as I tried a very similar flight plan afterwards without any of these running and that eventually also CTD'd. I'll try to track that one down next.

All in all, I think I'll leave any further testing for a while, and maybe try again if/when the Simconnect SDK is improved and the changes are incorporated into FSUIPC.
