what is really really cool about this version of fsuipc, you can dump advdisp, and use the new display functionality of fsuipc. fsuipc redirects the rc menus and dialogs to the window the FS ATC uses. transparent, frame friendly, sizable and moveable. is this available with the unregistered version of fsuipc thanks,jim

hmmmmm...I have just reviewed the documentation on this twice and was unable to find reference to this ability - do you have a manual page number by chance?

Maybe you can help me.I got this new fsuipc v3.60 (I'd dumped advdisplay.dll before with fsuipc v3.553 - and it really worked better but like advdisp window) and hoped to obtain what JD wrote in this forum, about being like FS ATC, which in my case were those white lines with options in numbers 1...What I have is the same advdisp window but as fsuipc (top) which is moveable, "dockable" but nothing like FS ATC window. I even checked to see if there where an advdisp.dll in FS9 modules folder but there wasn't.Obviouslly I'm doing something wrong...Eduardo

it's like the fs atc window in the fact that it is transparent.jd

Same keystroke definition as hiding the adv window.The docs say somewhere that the new window will doc on a saved flight somehow. Read the new docs downloaded with 3.601 (actually get the docs from the latest on Pete's site or from the download of 3.60.Info is also in the release notes.

Having just ordered RC4 that's terrific news, the ADVDISP window was rather a misgiving for me but if now it's gonna be more like the standard window then that's great for me. Do you know if it can be changed to open/close with the standard FSATC keystroke?

I prefer the Adventure Display window.Down and out of the way. I always had a hard time reading the MS ATC Pop-Up.

I understand that 'dockable' implies what the old ADVDISPLAY window did, and that was attach itself to a displayed panel. The ability to toggle the display has always been with us, and continues. However, you describe the docking function as simply remembering where on the screen it was located when the flight is save. What I am describing is quite different.

I'm still ploughing through the manual. So lucky it's got to come from USA I guess. Even now I only half understand it all.Question though, what's the best flght planner to use please? Is there one that works outside of FS and gets me a WX report so I can work out my Alternates?

Don't know of any flightplanner that allows you to get a wx report. It'd be very nice to do this.I have Active Sky v6 which allows you to get a wx report without running FS9 and allows you to plan any flight, knowing from where the wind blows and which runway would be best.Hope it helps you.Eduardo

Activesky is great, I do have it. And yes I agree, I can get the wx from that. But does say FSBuild work outside FS? If so then I'd use that.Incidentally, I saw a screenie on one of the other avsim forums showing the planner in FSX, it does show the weather at the various waypoints, cool.

Wouldn't know since I use FSNav4.70You're right. It would be terrific if FSBuild or FSNav worked outside FS9Eduardo

Read somewhere FSBuild does work outside. Could be useful to know for when I get RC.

I'm not too bothered about the window really I suppose but would like to free up my numbers to FSPax to alter headings, speeds etc.

FS Build works outside of FS9. You can prepare a flight plan without FS running. If you have one of the Active Sky versions (later ones)running with weather loaded FSD version 2.2x will incorporate winds aloft at your chosen cruise altitude into your fuel planning by calculating estimated ground speed and using the aircraft performance profiles that come with FSB or one you modify.

Many thanks, I'm still toying with it, though according to some of what I read it doesn't handle small fields at all, so Emma would not be plannable in it. However it might at least allow me to set up everything before going into FS so that once I launch it I just load a plan, load my plane and fly. With only one quick skip out to input the number of souls on board for RC.
