  1. HI Mathijs. No it was not defender as the next itme I loaded up the PC, I still had the same problem. I am resigned to the fact that MS windows I believe in some way is preventing the gauge showing properly, and the only way to cure it to do a repair the op system, a process I am not relishinging as all the programs will be wiped from th eC drive in the process. Thanks in the meantime for your help.
  2. Hello Mathijs, Thank you for the fonts, I installed the full set into FSX/Fonts. I am afraid I still cannot see any alpha/numeric characters on the C4. I am resigned to the fact that something on the w10 operating system side is preventing these fonts being read in properly. Very strange as I have never had a problem at all over the last 3 years or so. Edit: Just excluded my whole FSX folder in Windows Defender rebooted and the C4 now working. I'll have another check tomorrow to see if this has fixed it.
  3. Hi Mathijs, I have the first 3 fonts installed in FSX/Fonts but not the last two. LCD_MONO.ttf LCD_MONO_italic.ttf I did a re-install of the gliders over the weekend and it has not installed these two fonts. Would be able to send these two fonts to me Thanks.
  4. Hi Mathijs, As w10 updates are mandatory, I keep getting this issue. I think I have got around this by installing the full font set from another w10 PC. Having installed the fonts and rebooted all seems OK again. What is the actual font the C4 gauge uses? It would be useful to know.
  5. Hello Mathjis, I am afraid the C4 gauge problem has come back in not showing the text. I have narrowed it down to this update. "2017-05 Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 1703 for x64-based Systems (KB4016871)" When I removed this update and re-booted the computer and loaded the Discus the C4 gauge was showing the text correctly.
  6. Hi Mathijs, I am afraid I do not know what update caused this issue. After I shutdown the PC yesterday, the PC ran another update, supposedly to bring the PC up to date after I rolled it back. I checked the glider again today and the gauges were fine. Perhaps the original update just didn't install the files properly on the first run. I will just keep an eye on this on future MS updates and notify you if there are any issues from any of them.
  7. Yep, restore my w10 OP system to an earlier restore point and the gauges are showing normally. Grrrrrrrr, MS need shooting for corrupting files on an update. Will have to keep an eye on this on future MS updates. Thanks for the pointer Mathijs
  8. Hi Mathijs, I did have a major Windows update a few weeks ago, maybe that has screwed up my fonts somehow? I'll try and roll back to an earlier restore point and see if that makes any difference.
  9. Hi, I am having problems with the Discus/ASK21 C4 display in that it does not display properly. I get no Text at all, only a few pictograms and the vario graph (see attachment) The gauge was working until recently, I have done nothing myself that would corrupt the files. I have tried doing a full re-install of the aerosoft gliders and also a integraity check/repair to FSX:Steam but still no joy. I am at a real loss on how to fix this so need some help. System is w10 with FSX:steam.
  10. Glad you got it going Scott. Good isn't it. FSUIPC4 will work with Prepar3d. Dont know about Xconn though.
  11. Scott If you find that FSUIPC does not work for FS9 you could try the GPSout utility from the PocketFMS link the Peter gave in a post above. You will need to download and configure com0com from the condor site. ]http://forum.condorsoaring.com/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=12538] Then in the GPSout.ini file set Port=CNCA0. I have not got FS9 to test it out but cannot see why it should not work.
  12. Good news Scott Xcon works. I disabled my GPSout in FSUIPC and run Xconn. Unzip and Install the Xcon software. Now you need to find the Wi-Fi address of your Android. Make sure your Android is wirelessly connected to your router. On the Android, goto settings -> Wireless and networks In that menu select the connected Wi-Fi network. Note the IP address at the bottom of the screen. On the desktop tray right click Xconn and choose properties. "Tick" TCP protocol. Enter the IP address of the Wi-FI address found above. and Enter 4353 for the port number this must match the port number in the XCSoar devices set up. You may get a connection error TCP cant connect to IP Address:4353. The way I found to get around this is: Close the Xconn program by choosing "Exit" in the desktop tray Make sure XCSoar is running on the Android. (see XCSoar Device setup below) Load up FSX, load the flight. When FSX is finished loading then run Xconn again and it should connect up. Any further error messages should be a simple Xconn exit and then run the Xcon program again. It's a good idea to have a Xcon shortcut on your desktop window. In XCSoar Devices, Select A -> disabled Select B Port = TCP Port TCP Port = 4353 DRiver = Condor Soaring Simulator. Use the Wi-Fi Address from the Android connection and put in the box above in place of the 192.166.0.1 shown.
  13. Scott Yes, got XCSoar working nicely over Wi-Fi using licensed version of FSUIPC. Be interesting to see how you got on with Xconn. You have already seen my post using Wi-fi http://forum.aerosoft.com/index.php?/topic/55931-using-xcsoar-by-wi-fi-to-android-device/#entry388259
  14. I have recently got an HTC Wildfire Android phone and found that there was a download application for Android systems. So I wanted this to connect to FSX After spending a few days looking up on a suitable connection, bluetooth seemed a good way to go but then I saw this link from Condor on how to set up Condor to XCSoar using Wi-Fi. It was so easy to set-up too. http://forum.condors...hp?f=1&t=12538] This is what you need to do n FSX though. Go into FSUIPC GPSout "Tick" Check to enable GPSout "Tick" Enter unique port name , enter CNCA0 (it'a a zero at the end not a letter O) And that's all the setting up in FSX, the rest is in the tutorial link above. I cannot see why this cannot work on a remote PC using a similar method over WI-FI, you dont need to use WideFS then. FSUIPC Setup XCSoar on Android
  15. Having just bought myself an Android phone, I see that XCSoar does an app for it. Does anyone know if this can anyway connect to a PC to get the NMEA data out of FSX via a virtual port?
