    Saitek Flight Yoke won't connect

    You can use FSUIPC for most Saitek hardware, but you will have problems with display panels (such as in the multi-panel or instrument panels). If you are using these, I would recommend looking at (+ FSUIPC if needed). Avoid the saitek software /drivers though... Regards, John

    My "pauses" or stutters fixed!

    AutoSave in FSUIPC just calls SimConnect to save the flight, and is the same as activating 'Save Scenario' from the P3D menu or hot key. The time taken to save is mainly due to the aircraft being used, with complex add-on aircraft such as those by PMDG known to take several seconds or more, so autosave is not recommended for such aircraft.

    FSUIPC Landing Rate

    You need the paid version of FSUIPC to run Lua scripts. As RichieFly says, auto-run lua files must be called 'ipcReady.lua'. If the lua file has another name, you can add an '[Auto]' section to your ini file, i.e. [Auto] 1=Lua myLuaFile Note that the '[LuaFiles]' section is populated automatically and should not be modified - it contains the lua files found in your 'Modules' directory for assignment purposes.

    FSUIPC Autosave with PMDG

    Use the full pathname to the files that you would like to be managed, e.g something like AlsoManage1=C:\Program files\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v4\PMDG\PMDG 737 NGX\PanelState\*.FLT.fmc John
