  1. I have to say I have been a devout follower and FSX flight simmer since the late 90's. But, after hours, days, and even weeks trying to network a simulator PC to a secondary PC, I'm throwing in the towel. Sure, I have some unplanned moments of guessing brilliance that have made the connection work in the past and I have enjoyed a few hours of the most realistic flying I could possibly have sitting in the comfort of my home office. But, who in God's name can call this fun when you spend 3/4 of the time "working the bugs out" of this stupid thing called Simconnect, as you spend flying? There is always something whether it's miss-matched MSI's (simconnect clients), a ISP change in IP addresses that aren't static, a firewall port that is duplicated or not open. And all this crap of having multiple Simconnect clients on your machines so the odds are increased that 2 pc's will actually talk to each other? Oh, and then make sure you put this .ini file here, and .cfg file there, blah, blah, blah.. I fly a Cessna 172 in real life and I can tell you it would be easier for anyone to get a full-on type rating in a B767 than it is to network FSX SDK clients on an alternate PC to allow the primary PC to do the primary job of giving you a most realistic aircraft flying experience with FSX. The whole thing in my mind is designed to be a test of how much one will endure to make the process enjoyable -or- just give it up. I'm sure if someone out there could design some fail-safe uncomplicated networking application, there would be many more virtual pilots in this world. Sad, but true. This is a joke and I hope I never have to look at another SimConnect Client version again. I just bought a Phantom 4 drone ($1400) and am sure to experience my pleasure of flight in a much easier way and have beautiful pictures and videos to prove it. Goodbye FSX. Microsoft probably saved millions of dollars in support by letting this application go. Nothing but nonsense for anyone who is really into this hobby seriously.
  2. Having had a gamepad with only vibration effects, I found that fsx doesnt allow you to set the force feedback levels. The driver that came along with the gamepad also didnt support any level setting. This was unplayable as it kept vibrating at max rate all the time. I have created a somconnect addon that creates the vibration effect based on the following : (developed for Airbus A321 , should also do well with Boeing's ) {Not sure fsx looks into these states for ff calculation } 1. Indicated airspeed 2. Engine rpm 3. Acceleration around 3 axes 4. GroundSpeed ( if on ground ) Other factors with vibration 1. Flaps increment decrement ( step wise ) 2. Spoiler toggle ( fully extended/fully retracted ) 3. Landing gear up/down 4. Stalling 5. Overspeed 6. Landing force Those who only have vibration effects in their gamepads, do try it out.. How to install ? 1. As usual with all addons, download the dll to a path and if on Vista or above and modify dll.xml at C:\Users\<Username>\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\FSX\ as follows: {For XP, this file is in a different folder, need to figure it out.} Add the following section towards the end of the dll.xml just before </SimBase.Document> <Launch.Addon> <Disabled>False</Disabled> <ManualLoad>True</ManualLoad> <Name>ForceEffects.dll</Name> <Path>D:\Path\ForceEffects.dll</Path> </Launch.Addon> 2. This will ask permission to load the dll when you start fsx. Click 'ok' or 'yes' wherever needed. 3. Also, remember to DISABLE forcefeedback from fsx settings and do not connect more than one ff enabled controllers while trying this out.

  3. Hello Together! I've got a huge Problem for a few weeks. Every Aircraft-Addon I install doesn't seem to work. I can't even find them in the Addon bar and it's not asking for permission when I startup FSX:SE. I think it's a SDK or SimConnect issue because the Aircraft isn't initializing at all, as you can see in this picture: I already reinstalled it and cleaned the registry, even using the normal FSX:MS, it doesn't work anymore. I also installed the SDK for FSX:SE on FSX\SDK\Core Utilities Kit\SimConnect SDK\LegacyInterfaces. I really don't know any solution anymore. Could you help me? Best Regards! Robert
  4. Greetings Gentleman, I have a notebook where I run secondary applications on a network to communicate with my main sim machine. I already have Simconnect setup for FSX, but I cannot find any tutorials on setting up Simconnect for P3D. Amongst others, I want to run Active Sky Next on my notebook via Simconnect. I just purchased a new SSD where I installed P3D 2.4 (so clean install) and am setting things up now so that all is ready for when the T7 is released - hopefully this year still. Your expertise would be greatly apprecaited. Thank you and regards, Rene
  5. Hello! I'd like to report a problem that I've had when trying to activate the J41 on FSX-se on the past week and a possible solution that, although obvious once you start investigating, may not be so plain simple for everybody. Also, this is a suggestion of a topic to be added to PMDG Knowledge Base on the Support Portal, since this may be a recurrent problem. - Problem: I'm running a FSX-SE only install and was unable to activate the J41 because of a missing SimConnect version. I formatted my PC recently and this time I only installed FSX-SE on it. I had no problems so far using any of my addons, including most PMDG planes that I own, with exception of the J41. The activation screen simply didn't show up when initializing the aircraft. I tried selecting the aircraft from the FREE FLIGHT screen and after starting a default flight (which is unchanged from factory default), but none worked. In an initial investigation of the problem, I opened Windows Event Log. There were 17 repeated error events; Up to 5 logs had been generated per second. Basically, they contained a message saying that Windows failed to generate activation context for the PMDG_BAe_JS4100.dll and saying that SimConnect version 10.0.61242.0 could not be found. Indeed I did not have this version of SC installed for some reason. I searched the internet for the installer, downloaded (from a safe provider, of course) and installed the software, proceeding to activate the J41. And it finally worked. I thought it would be useful to report this, since other people may be having or may eventually have a similar problem.
  6. I'm working with the TextMenu example of the SimConnect SDK. I'm trying to get the text inside the textmenu window to display in Yellow but the enum element for that doesn't work...I get the default white color for the text. Here is my line SimConnect_Text(hSimConnect, SIMCONNECT_TEXT_TYPE_MENU, SIMCONNECT_TEXT_TYPE_PRINT_YELLOW, EVENT_MENU_1, sizeof(Menu1), (void*)Menu1); The enum element I'm using is "SIMCONNECT_TEXT_TYPE_PRINT_YELLOW" which should print the text in yellow (unless I'm mis-understanding the SDK). Here is the enum list: enum SIMCONNECT_TEXT_TYPE{ SIMCONNECT_TEXT_TYPE_SCROLL_BLACK, SIMCONNECT_TEXT_TYPE_SCROLL_WHITE, SIMCONNECT_TEXT_TYPE_SCROLL_RED, SIMCONNECT_TEXT_TYPE_SCROLL_GREEN, SIMCONNECT_TEXT_TYPE_SCROLL_BLUE, SIMCONNECT_TEXT_TYPE_SCROLL_YELLOW, SIMCONNECT_TEXT_TYPE_SCROLL_MAGENTA, SIMCONNECT_TEXT_TYPE_SCROLL_CYAN, SIMCONNECT_TEXT_TYPE_PRINT_BLACK = 0x0100, SIMCONNECT_TEXT_TYPE_PRINT_WHITE, SIMCONNECT_TEXT_TYPE_PRINT_RED, SIMCONNECT_TEXT_TYPE_PRINT_GREEN, SIMCONNECT_TEXT_TYPE_PRINT_BLUE, SIMCONNECT_TEXT_TYPE_PRINT_YELLOW, SIMCONNECT_TEXT_TYPE_PRINT_MAGENTA, SIMCONNECT_TEXT_TYPE_PRINT_CYAN, SIMCONNECT_TEXT_TYPE_MENU = 0x200 }; Thank you for any help...
  7. Hi all, After installing a fresh Windows 10, I install FSX: SE. The problem was when I started to install addons. The first addon was Eaglesoft Citation X V2.0, after accepting .DLLs I started the sim, just to find out that all the gauges were missing. Before the formatting all was good (also Windows 10 and FSX:SE). After it I installed CaptainSim 757, and I got this: As you can see the gauges are also missing, but I have accepted the .DLL gauges. I also tried to install FS Force 2, and I got this error message at the begginig of startup screen: Also have this with FSInn, but I think this is an already know issue, and can be corrected. I am starting to be really frustrated, because I already tried to install all the SimConnect in the SDK folder, I tried to turned off UAC, switch all the apps for running as admin, nothing is solving this. Anyone here also have this problem? Kind regards.
  8. If you click on the NAV button on the G1000 PFD, the NAV cursor (blue box outline) moves from one NAV to the other to show which NAV you will be entering the frequency for. I can't find the corresponding simconnect event for this button, or a keyboard shortcut for it. Ditto the COM 1-2 button on the PFD. Note, I am not talking about the frequency sway between current and standby. Regards, Dave

  11. Hello, I'm building an app that shows the airports, ndb, and vor within the area around the aircraft. I'm having a problem that some random airports are missing and I can't figure out why. I compiled the code from Microsoft's sample here: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc730341.aspx and I am seeing the same behavior. It looks like the NDB's and VOR's are accurate when I request them. I found a similar thread from 2007 but there were no replies http://forum.avsim.net/topic/224183-simconnect-airports-missing-from-list/ and I'm just wondering if there is any way to get around this issue and return all airports. Clearing the cache is not working for me. Here is an example from one of my customers: It does look like this issue still exists in Prepar3D v2. I'm hoping there is some magic incantation that can fix this. Thanks
  12. recovering SimConnect_Variables : SimConnect_AddToDataDefinition(hSimConnect, DEFINITION_1, "nav ident:1", "number", SIMCONNECT_DATATYPE_INT64) SimConnect_AddToDataDefinition(hSimConnect, DEFINITION_1, "nav name:1", "number", SIMCONNECT_DATATYPE_INT64) Simconnect return numbers like :41975 or 1279738179 how this can be converted to strings ?? using NAV DME:index simconnect return 603 (on efis I read 0.3) or 41975 (on efis I read 22.7). AddToDataDefinition(hSimConnect, DEFINITION_1, "nav dme:1", "number", SIMCONNECT_DATATYPE_INT64) I have to do a conversion or are bogus values??
  13. The Setup I run FSX on a network setup. I use WideFS and Simconnect. WideFS is necessary for certain programs that do not use the Simconnect interface, such as my VA's ACARS, PFPX, and TOPCAT. Simconnect is able to handle other programs such as AISIDSTAR and SuperTrafficBoard. All of those programs are running on one client computer. WideFS and Simconnect are installed correctly on both the client and the server per Mr. Dowson and the instructions posted by HiFi Sims, respectively, including port forwarding through the firewalls. The Problem My situation was as follows. When turning the server computer on for the first time, beginning a flight, launching WideFS and the other programs, everything worked as planned. Unfortunately, I was fighting an unrelated bug that seems to be inherent to version 5.4c of MyTraffic that results in Stackhash/BEX errors due to corrupt texture files. While pursuing the direct files that caused these bugs, the errors caused FSX to CTD. When I would restart a flight, AISIDSTAR and SuperTrafficBoard would fail to transmit and receive data from the server. This was very puzzling as I was able to run AI Traffic.exe on the client without issue. On my FSX, I have several other programs that are triggered to run whenever FSX starts, such as OpusFSX and AI Carriers. Now, OpusFSX will generally shut-down whenever FSX terminates. Other programs, such as AI Carriers, do not. For example, if I start, end, and restart FSX 12x without shutting down my computer, AI Carriers will have 12 identical processes running. These processes are only killed by opening the task manager and deleting each individually. Until now, I had never really considered this to be anything other than benign. The Diagnosis Last night, I found this FSDeveloper topic regarding how one should restart Simconnect. Toward the end of the topic, someone mentions that certain programs, e.g., AI Carriers, that fail to terminate after FSX is closed or crashes can cause issues with Simconnect. Specifically, those programs may block other programs on another computer from interacting with Simconnect. The Solution Upon reading this information, I tried to test out the suggestion made in that topic. My FSX, which I had not closed after several crashes, was still running but not communicating with AISIDSTAR. I launched task manager and saw, as I expected, several additional instances of AI Carrier processes running. I shut down FSX, terminated each of the processes, then relaunched FSX. To my enjoyment, AISIDSTAR was now able to connect and function as it should. In the future, I would suggest to anyone with similar issues to check their processes list for any programs that have failed to close when FSX ends. Simply ending the process was enough to fix the connection issue. If that is not enough, restart your computer so that the process list can begin again without anything FSX relating already running. As can be seen in that topic, AI Carriers is not the only program that is known to remain open after terminating FSX. Several others may continue running and begin identical processes after restarting FSX. I cannot answer why AI Traffic.exe was able to run except for the fact that it sends less data through Simconnect as its purpose is to test the connection. I am now able to enjoy AISIDSTAR free from any encumberance or connection issue. Anthony
  14. I have read, I don't know how many, a lot of posts for this problem and tried most all of the suggestions with no luck so I'm posting here to see if anyone can help with this. While attempting to install SimConnect on my second computer I managed to screw up SimConnect all together. I tried undoing what I had done to no avail. I finally bit the bullet and removed and reinstalled FSX SE. I still have the problem. I installed Ezdok and when I brought the sim up there was no add-on tab to select although in the drop down view selection Ezca VC cam – 00 is shown. The normal view don't work other then the selections in the drop down view menu. I get the, I imagine, typical errors now like, Can't initialize SimConnect and If SimConnect doesn't start in 50 sec, etc. I installed FSUIPC4 and I now have an add-on selection tab but only FSUIPC4 shows there and it does seem to work. I installed GSX and it doesn't connect either. I have installed the various SimConnect .msi files (4). The one in the 'lib' folder and the 3 legacy versions. When I run Ezdok configure it says the 4 SimConnects were found, switching to 10.0.6.61259.0. When I run the registry selection in Ezdok config, it shows ezsc.dll and dx8vb.dll succeed. I checked for the winsxs folders and the 4 versions of SimConnect are there. I removed all but the original versions of SimConnect .cfg and .xml files although I'm led to believe that these shouldn't matter. I have gone into Steam 'properties', 'local files' and selected “Verify integrity of game cashe”. The first time I ran that it showed 1 bad file. I have tried that again and that message doesn't appear. When I start FSX SE after that it shows that SimConnect client is being installed, version 10.0.62615.0. Then it says configuring DLC and shows 7 steps. My current Steam build is shown as 1550585. I obviously don't understand all that I know about this so thanks for any suggestions you might have. :smile: Bill Edit: Spelling
  15. I am getting back into programming a managed application with SimConnect and while I have read the SDK documentation and gone through the examples I am totally lost at what they claim it is possible to do. The Events section lists about 14 failures including engine failures (one for each possible engine), pitot blockage, pitot static, brake failures and system failures (vacuum, electrical, hydraulic). But there is no single example on how to actually trigger any of these failures or query the simulator about the current state of the failures. // subscribe to Engine Failures simconnect.MapClientEventToSimEvent(EVENTS.FAIL_ENGINE_1, "TOGGLE_ENGINE1_FAILURE") simconnect.AddClientEventToNotificationGroup(NOTIFICATION_GROUP.BasicFailures, EVENTS.FAIL_ENGINE_1, false); // set the group priority simconnect.SetNotificationGroupPriority(NOTIFICATION_GROUP.BasicFailures, SimConnect.SIMCONNECT_GROUP_PRIORITY_HIGHEST); and then I tried triggering with: simconnect.TransmitClientEvent(00000001, EVENTS.FAIL_ENGINE_1, 1, NOTIFICATION_GROUP.BasicFailures, SIMCONNECT_EVENT_FLAG.DEFAULT); and with simconnect.SetSystemEventState(EVENTS.FAIL_ENGINE_1, SIMCONNECT_STATE.ON); neither of them work.
  16. I have posted this on the Prepar3D forum but since I had no responses I though it as a good idea to try it here. Fresh Win 10 x64 Pro (all updates) installation + Fresh Prepar3D v3.3 Installation and I am unable to install SimConnect from ...Flightware\Prepar3D v3\redist\Interface folders using .msi files. I have tried installing SimConnect.msi files located in the following folders ...\Prepar3D v3\redist\ESPv1 ...\Prepar3D v3\redist\Interface\FSX-RTM\retail\lib ...\Prepar3D v3\redist\Interface\FSX-SP1\retail\lib ...\Prepar3D v3\redist\Interface\FSX-SP2-XPACK\retail\lib And fail to install all of them. I am always getting this error: An error occurred during the installation of assembly 'Microsoft.ESP.SimConnect,verion="1.0.20.0",type="win32",processorArchitectue="x86",publicKeyToken="67c7c14424d61b5b". Please refer to Help and Support for more information. What should I do? This is the first time I had this issue (never had this error with FSX, Prepar3D v1.x, Prepar3D v2.x and Prepar3D v3.2) Regards, Luís
  17. After mega tries and forum help, I already have a successful SimConnect setup : am running my vPilot on a client---I guess this means SCnnct is talking across the network from server to client. After reading the Networking section in the ASN manual: * Do I need another license to install ASN on my client (XP) ? * Is the client SimConnect located inside the ASN program, then, on my client? Thanks for your help. Doug Running FSX SE on server
  18. FSX SE was no problem for a few months now suddenly it will not start. It keeps telling me failed to connect with simconnect I have also been told I will need to reinstall Steam and delete any add-ons. Surely his cannot be true with Steam
  19. Hi All, Decided yesterday that I'm going to move years of summing work into FSX-SE due to performance increases. I run a network setup using two machines, one for gaming, one for support with programs such as EFB, ASCA, AS2016. I always used to use froogles sim connect video to get everything working but that's kind of irrelevant now.. Does anyone have a link to a decent video or text guide for getting this stuff working again?? Thanks in advance
  20. Dear FSX and/or FS2004-users, I am happy to announce that v170 of FaceTrackNoIR was released yesterday. The new version contains a number of important improvements, which also benefit many FSX-users (as well as FS2002/2004 and MS Flight). The most important new features: A new filter called Accela, providing great stability and yet maintain response; A new curve-configurator, so response can be tweaked better than before; An IR-tracker called PointTracker. This was translated from the FreeTrack sources and is very useful for users, who already have an IR-headset; A new game-protocol called "FreeTrack 2.0", which supports all FreeTrack and TrackIR enabled games, including MS Flight. All new features are listed on the website. You are welcome to try v170, please visit the FaceTrackNoIR website Wim Vriend FaceTrackNoIR Team Holland :p0502:

    A2A and Simconnect

    Ok, so I just joined a part 141 flight school to wrap up my instrument license and I have been flying a 172R so I thought it would be a good idea to get A2As 172R cause everyone's crazy about it. I jump in the plane on the sim and nothing works. I go into the maintenance hangar and everything is broken and I can't fix anything. Some people have had the same problem and they all say the solution is installing simconnect. I honestly have no clue what simconnect is or how to install it! Can anyone point me in the right direction? I'm in P3D V3! Wait I figured it out I think. I went into the P3D V3 redist thing, found the bottom one that said Fsx-SP2... I went in found a simconnect thing... Installed it and now my 172 works! Idk LMAO! Wait I figured it out I think. I went into the P3D V3 redist thing, found the bottom one that said Fsx-SP2...

  24. Good morning AVSIM! I recently uninstalled v2.2 and all addons (everything worked great) and installed v2.4 along with a few addon aircraft and none of my addon aircraft are working correctly. All of the models work perfectly, look great, but I have many system issues, different on all aircraft (all default P3D aircraft work). Here are the ones I have installed and their issues: Feelthere E135/45 - Nothing is clickable Feelthere E170/90 - Displays show enlarged pictures of the autopilot knobs and MCP is not present Aerosoft a320/1 - NAV display will not turn on (all other displays work) A2A C172 - Nothing turns on, mait hangar wont let me fix anything, control surfaces do not work I have tried reinstalling numerous times, even reinstalled v2.2 and it now has the same problems. Tried installing the most current SDK as a shot in the dark, didnt work. Tried installing through the migration tool, no luck. Admin permissions all around, anti-virus turned off during installation and P3D drive is exempt from scans, and everything runs as admin when opened. The only other thing I could think of was simconnect, I have v10.0.60905.0 (cant find any of the others) installed along with ESP simconnect 1.0.20.0 and FSX and P3D SDKs. But native P3D installs shouldnt need those I wouldnt think, ie A2A C172. Anyways, I need some flying in my life, so any help would be so greatly appreciated!
  25. Hello everyone ! I have quite a problematic issue with FSUIPC/SimConnect. After something around 4 or 5 hours of flight, FSUIPC disappears from the "Add-Ons" menu of FSX. My virtual airline's ACARS don't gather any information about the plane's conditions (flaps up/down, gear up/down, overspeeding, landing rate...). kACARS landing rate isn't working too, as well as EFASS: it stops showing the aircraft on the map. FSUIPC still continues to autosave the flight though. Some people on the internet says it's a problem with SimConnect, but I haven't seen yet a Can you guys help me ? It is a huge problem since EFASS and my VA's ACARS are the main programs I use for my flights :( Thank you, AF1621.
