VAFS5 and the Majestic Dash 8-Q400

Post by FDX016 - Nick » April 22nd, 2013, 8:44 pm

Greetings Captains,

At this time, we are recieving a lot of reports from users across the virtual world that VAFS5, along with other ACARS systems, are unable to detect engine status through FSUIPC and consequently there is a lak of ability to record flights using this aircraft in FSX.

As of right now, the answer from Mike is that there is something weird with how Majestic programmed their engine handling. Mike uses an offset through FSUIPC to detect whether the engine is started or not, and this is not getting triggered because it seems Majestic is handling the engine parameters and operations outside FSX.

At this time, there is nothing Mike or VAFinancials can do about this matter. The ball is in Majestic's court so-to-speak. Discussion relating to this can continue in the topic below.
