  1. Thanks Andrew, commenting out the ipc.runlua command in ipcReady.lua fixed it. Just to clarify : LINDA is a most useful utility that helps me a lot with writing my own simple Lua plug-ins as well as with debugging them. In fact I have donated to Gรผnther in the past and also made a minor contribution to the PMDG 777 lua plug-in at the time. It's just that a couple of the hardware units I built for my modest rig are based on encoders that generate keystroke combinations, which LINDA can't process. That's why I assign functions through FSUIPC. Do keep up the good work though !
  2. I use LINDA V3.2.6 for P3D 64-bit with P3DV4.5HF3. Currently LINDA loads automatically when I load P3D, even though the LINDA setting "Start GUI with Sim" is not ticked. I would prefer to load LINDA manually when I need it. Is there a way to stop it from loading automatically ? I have located two different exe.xml files on my system but neither of those contain a launch entry for LINDA.EXE so I'm probably looking in the wrong place.
  3. I wanted to change my Eclipse yoke POV switch from the left (default) to the right hat and initially could not figure out how to do that. Hence my initial post. Then I had another - better - look at the CH Control Manager GUI and noticed the tickbox "Eclipse POV on Right" : just a matter of not paying enough attention to detail, can happen at my age ๐Ÿ˜Š
  4. Moderator : please delete this post. I have found the solution ๐Ÿ™„
  5. A further update : Sorry but my post was premature ๐Ÿ˜ž All looked to be OK once I'd removed the aircraft profile. Sadly, as soon as I'd created a fresh new aircraft profile for my PMDG 772LR, the problem reoccurred even with the v2.3 beta installed. I've once again had to leave it with Bryan. In the meantime I'll just have to continue killing ramp agents (there seem to be plenty more where they come from) ๐Ÿ˜
  6. Update : Before installing the v2.3 beta that Bryan made available to me, I did some more testing with V2.0. It turned out that somehow there was a problem with the custom profile that I had set up for my PMDG 772 : after removing that profile and using the default UGCX parameters for the aircraft again, pushback worked and completed as it should. I ended up not installing the beta. I sent Bryan the contents of the profile config file but he could not spot a problem with it. However, it won't take me much time to recreate a custom config and I'm glad I now know what to look for if the problem crops up again, even if the nature of it is still a mystery. In any case, he asked me to update this thread so that the outcome may help others. Thanks for your prompt attention to the support ticket, Bryan ! ๐Ÿ‘
  7. Hi guys, I appreciate that things have been frantic with FS2020 issues and now Bryan has injured himself ๐Ÿ˜ง But six months after I first posted about this problem... Have I missed something ? It is a bit annoying, having to keep killing the pushback with the PMDG 772...
  8. I had to uninstall P3DV4.5 HF3 due to a technical issue that I couldn't fix. Before uninstalling P3D I removed all add-ons including UGCX. P3D is now back up and running again. When I go to re-install UGCX, will it find the aircraft and airport profiles I created ? They are still in the same location (and backed up for good measure).
  9. Thanks Bryan, will keep an eye out. Will this be announced on Facebook ? That's where I'll be most likely to notice it.
  10. Hey Fernando, Apologies for the delayed reply ! I somehow had not received notification of updates to this thread so did not check it for a week. On my PC, the airport profiles are stored in C:\Users\Emile\AppData\Roaming\Ultimate Ground Crew X\Airport Profiles\ with a folder for each airport where I have used UGCX. Hope this helps ๐Ÿ˜ƒ
  11. Hi Manuel, Good idea. As it happens, a couple of weeks ago I created a custom pushback route for NZCH Gate 34, which as it turns out also has the problem (pushback completes OK with the PMDG 737-600 NGXu but not with the PMDG 772 or 773). I found the NZCH airport profile folder OK. Here is the contents of the file Gate 34.INI : [ParkingProfile] marshallerdist=25 totalpbroutes=1 [PushbackRoute.0] totalwpnts=5 tailhdg=122 nosehdg=302 pbnodeidx=3 routename=Facing west waypoint.0=-43.48739572;172.54281297 waypoint.1=-43.48725821;172.54418065 waypoint.2=-43.48730955;172.54437134 waypoint.3=-43.48737752;172.54447800 waypoint.4=-43.48746477;172.54461199 Hope this helps. Just be aware that as with my NZAA installation, this is an add-on airport, not a default P3D one (though by a different developer).
  12. Hi Manuel, Yes the problem occurs with the PMDG B777, both the 200 and 300 models. I use the Schopf tug for both aircraft and yes both have a bypass pin configured.
  13. That's a good idea. I just uploaded an archive with the two screenshots. Here is the link : https://wetransfer.com/downloads/69d0b801388ed0c76efa4b94a17a896d20200721115557/9dfd8c4b77bb0d37904bb06b92ebdc2720200721115620/ee1140 BTW these are not custom routes and as mentioned, I was unable to edit them. Hope Manual can make some sense out of this.
  14. I have taken screenshots of the previews of the routes at NZAA gates B3 (which does not complete) and A28 (which does complete). To me, the only difference between the two is that at gate A28 the pushback segment at the final heading is much longer (almost as long as the first segment "off the gate") than is the case at gate B3. Unfortunately I can't paste them here but if you're interested in seeing them, let me know how I can get them to you.
