    Muelheim Ruhr X Update

    Hi! There have recently been some changes to the freeware scenery Muelheim Ruhr X. It has been modernized and it has been polished up with the current technical possibilities of modern scenery design. First, long-planned texture optimizations were made. Then a new airport layout was created, which has differentiated material properties. In addition, a newly developed and animated Zeppelin was integrated into the scenery. The term zeppelin is actually not correct, because this type of airship is called Blimp. The software package includes seasonal objects such as umbrellas, blimp and hay bales. The scenery is rounded off by the new Avatar Steven. With it you can explore the many details of the airport very well. The scenery can be downloaded as usual without registration from the Bahrometrix download page. Barrier-free download: P3DV4 Mülheim Ruhr X V1.15 New features / changes - seasonally controlled objects (in-game) WDL Blimp parasols Bale / Heuquader Plants / Planters - Color correction of the airport orthophoto - Layout with differentiated material properties - current ground markings - Texture optimizations - New Avatar Steven All features according to P3DV4 SDK specifications, the seasonal objects are based on the in-game possibilities of the P3DV4. Pictures ... The new airport layout contains current ground markings All surfaces have different material properties, the markings and the asphalt surface reflect differentiated solar radiation. In addition, the asphalt surface was created with a rain-mirroring effect. the stronger the rain, the stronger the effect The new avatar. His name is Steven The hay bales, as well as the umbrellas on the terrace, the blimp and plants are seasonally controlled The plants and parasols are only available in the summer months The Blimp is animated and flies a 45-minute flight over the Essen and Muelheim - it's a new development at Bahrometrix The sightseeing flight of Blimp also takes place in the evening

    LINDA - Blue Screen of Death (BSOD)

    Dear LINDA users. I want to get rid of something here which is very close to my heart. And I do not want to give the wrong impression. To anticipate it. For many years now I use LINDA for button programming, first for the FSX and later also for the P3D. The program LINDA has almost always provided faithful and reliable services. First, I had programmed my Aerosoft Airbus with it and thus achieved those functions that were not accessible via the normal button programming. Later, I also programmed my Nemeth Design EC-135 and other aircraft. But ... Since the release of the P3DV4.3 and the associated updates of the software LINDA, FSUIPC etc, it came on my system in connection with LUA scripts, which were in the module folder, to a blue screen of my computer. The crash was reproducible. It was the LUA script for LINDA. As soon as I removed the LINDA-Lua script from the module folder, it did not come to a BlueScreen anymore. The problem was detected. My assumption was that the LINDA-Lua script or LINDA itself had caused this reproducible crash. In hindsight, this assumption was wrong. It was not the LINDA LUA script. It did not help. Because I could no longer use the flight simulator in connection with the alleged faulty LINDA script or LINDA altogether. The decision was not easy but inevitable. I separated from the program LINDA. Based on the assumption that LINDA or the LINDA LUA script no longer works properly with the new P3Dv4.3 version. So I went in search of a replacement for LINDA and found out that you can only use LUA scripts with FSUIPC and without LINDA. Only after several days and countless hours of intensive research on the internet and after much experimentation I came across a coincidence that not LINDA or a missing Windows 10 update were responsible for the BlueScreens. But for the crashes a faulty FSUIPC5.132 was responsible. By another coincidence, I came across the fact that there is a new and now bug-clean FSUIPC5.132c. So after I added the new version5.132c, all crashes and BlueScreen were gone. As if spun off by magic. At this point, I would like to once again thank the developer of LINDA. You always responded well and quickly to support questions, were very patient and always had good advice. Therefore, my heartfelt and sincere thanks for your commitment and enrichment for the Simmer Community!

    FSUIPC and LUA Script

    Hello Al. Your e-mail has arrived, thanks for that. I flew over it only briefly and come later to respond to it more precisely and to answer. Now I understand the background to Notepad ++. It will display color coded code, similar to opening an XML file with Internet Explorer. I never thought of that, I'll keep that in mind. Thank you for your hint. Again something learned! I had looked at the documentation for FSUIPC and LUA scripts several times, but I have never really learned all the descriptions. The descriptions were more confusing than helping them. Without your help, I would never have understood the code. Now the logic gradually opens up to me. But there I have to continue to learn to achieve a good "LUA script level" In the beginning I will make the scripts as neat as possible and as simple as possible. There will be stored only those functions, which are otherwise not reached via the normal button assignment. In the beginning it should not be too complex, otherwise it will be too confusing for a beginner like me too fast.

    LINDA - Blue Screen of Death (BSOD)

    Hello Andrew, i would like to give feedback. The problem with the BlueScreen is solved! To make it short. It was not because of LINDA or me or my Windows 10 system. It was up to FSUIPC. Apparently, the FSIPC5.132 was corrupt and under certain circumstances, the P3D crashed when a LUA script was in the module folder. Now the programmer of the FSUIPC has released a new version 5.132c. Thus the BlueScreen and the associated crashes are a thing of the past. Wanted to conclude by mentioning this, maybe this information will help someone else. regards Christian

    FSUIPC and LUA Script

    Hello Al. My sincerest thanks. Your new script works perfectly. I kept exactly to your instructions and put both functions on two different buttons. Once function 1 is assigned with parameter 1 and once function 2 with parameter 2. If I now press button A, then the left cover is switched through. I press button B, then the right cover is switched through. Just as it was intended. It's perfect! That would have been my next question. Namely whether one must have a single script for each function, or whether one can have several functions in a script. Your new script answers this question with a clear yes. So if I understand correctly, then you can have infinite many functions in a script, but you have to number the different functions? The one with the maximum character length has already happened yesterday. In the future, I stick to the generally accepted recommendations to keep the filenames on the one hand clear but on the other hand to keep short. With the parameters LuaKill, LuaSet, LuaClear etc I do not know what they are causing, so your recommendation will be followed and I will not "touch" these parameters. I had previously edited the scripts with Notepad (notepad.exe) from Windows 10, which works very well and without problems. I will follow the tip with the LuaEdit 2010 editor, I've already downloaded the program as a precaution. I'm sure that I'll break it often at the beginning 🙂 Now it starts with the button programming of the Eurocopter EC135. Later, some Airbus functions will be programmed using your script template. I'm really looking forward to it. My sincerest thanks for your expert knowledge. I was very happy! best regards Christian

    FSUIPC and LUA Script

    Hello Al. It works, the last script was successful!!! Actually, I was almost desperate, but I will not give up that easily. After an infinite number of attempts, a time not measured and the loss of many hairs, there has finally been a really good first step. But one after anonther ... At the beginning I had reported that it comes to a blue screen when I have called certain P3D menus. The crashes always came in connection with a LUA script in the module folder. Therefore also assume that there must be a connection with LINDA. So, after my assumption, it was either a boisterous Windows 10 update or some other mistake. Now I have just searched for an updated version of FSUIPC and found it. Pete Dowson, the FSUIPC's programmer, has released a new version (V5.132c). And what can I say, the crashes are gone. Pete had apparently previously published a flawed FSUIPC, which in combination with certain combinations with a LINDA LUA script crashed. Well, with the new FSUIPC5.123c the computer is running stable again. With FSUIPC & LUA Script! The best thing is that with your help I can now finally do a LINDA-independent programming of my switches and buttons. I am so happy and totally on it. The next few days are used intensively to get behind the functionality of the LUA Script. I can only really thank you for your patience, your knowledge and help. As far as here .. Now I'm happy again

    FSUIPC and LUA Script

    If the above code can not work, then I can test a long time without a result. It's about LINDA not working properly on my system anymore. It comes to a crash. More specifically, to a blue screen. I mentioned that. That's why I want to program a LUA script which works without LINDA but with FSUIPC. I have tried to execute the code of yours in all earthly and possible combinations by placing it on a button. As a defiance, it does not work. But now I do not want to keep anyone busy with my problem any longer and hope that I can not do any kind of decent button programming. Until then, the corresponding switches in the virtual cockpit are operated with the mouse. regards Christian

    FSUIPC and LUA Script

    Thanks for your explanations. The sample code is the one you wrote above: -- ## Engine Cover Control ############### local function Engine1_Cover_Open () ipc.writeLvar("L:switch engine 1 rpm control cover", 1) end local function Engine1_Cover_Close () ipc.writeLvar("L:switch engine 1 rpm control cover", 0) end if _t("switch engine 1 rpm control cover", 1) then Engine1_Cover_Open () else Engine1_Cover_Close () end Now that I seem to be on the right path, I will try to reach the goal. Thank you very much.

    FSUIPC and LUA Script

    Hello Mark. I have tried this now, unfortunately it does not work. Best I describe briefly the procedure. 1. An empty text file is created in the Module folder. I rename them -> ec135.lua 2. I copy the text into the empty text file and save it 3. Start the P3D, go to FSUIPC and select the button 4. In the Functions drop-down menu I go to LUA and select the LUA script But nothing happens when I press the button with the LUA script. What do I have to enter under parameter: 0/1?

    FSUIPC and LUA Script

    Hello. Can we agree that we will go through this step by step so that we can find possible sources of error gradually? For a real beginner like me that would be a great help. I am happy to send you my e-mail. But would not it be much better we would discuss this topic openly here and all other interested parties can read along here and participate in a possible solution? Mark, thank you first for your help. I copied the section into the script purely. But unfortunately that does not work. It was almost to be expected. How do I have to set this in FSUIPC? The switch is normal Botton on Coli-Hat: Does that mean I have to replace "t" with "true"?

    FSUIPC and LUA Script

    Hello AI. Thank you for your very friendly offer. To be honest, a simple example script would be enough for me to start with. For me, the information that there are different formats between a LINDA LUA script and an FSUIPC LUA script is completely new. If I had known that before, I would probably already be one step ahead. I had just downloaded a sample script from Avsim Lib (npc4fsx & p3d.zip). I suppose that will help me a bit. But I do not really know yet, how far I will get with the script example. So the funtions from the ec135 script, because I have to see exactly what keys are. Will post this later here.

    FSUIPC and LUA Script

    Hello Henry, many thanks for your response. Something similar I had already thought that the LUA script for FSIPC must have a different formatting. The format for LINDA LUA Script is: Sample Code ND Eurocopter EC135 -- ## Engine Cover Control ############### function Engine1_Cover_Open () ipc.writeLvar("L:switch engine 1 rpm control cover", 1) end function Engine1_Cover_Close () ipc.writeLvar("L:switch engine 1 rpm control cover", 0) end function Engine1_Cover_Toggle () if _t("switch engine 1 rpm control cover", 1) then Engine1_Cover_Open () else Engine1_Cover_Close () end end I have downloaded the zip archive you mentioned and I will take a look at the content. Still a question :Which characters have to be changed in order for the LUA Script FSUIPC to be compliant? By the way: the link from you ends on an unknown website
  14. Hello. In all likelihood I am not the first Simmer to ask this question, please be lenient with me. I would like to read a LUA script, in which functions for an aircraft are stored, in FSUIPC and then access these functions by means of button assignment. If I copy this script into the Module folder of the P3D, it will appear in FSUIPC, but I can not access the functions: P3D-Modules folder with ec135.lua script FSUIPC.ini LUA-Script entry Button-Menu in FSUIPC My question: must be in the module folder next to the LUA script more LUA files? So I have to download LUA from somewhere and do a "LUA installation"? So far, I'm not getting really smart about the whole thing. I searched the Internet all over, read English-language pages as well as German-language pages. But I can not get any further. I added an example of a created LUA script: http://bahrometrix.de/FSX_P3D/share/nd_ec135.zip The Script was formerly designed for LINDA. But I do not use LINDA anymore.

    LINDA - Blue Screen of Death (BSOD)

    I can only explain it all that my Windows 10 is not up to date and I lack a needed update. Now I'll update my Windows10 and then test the new LINDA version. Thank you for your patience and your help. Thanks a lot Andrew.
