    Re: arcaze module - mip-buttons - jeehell

    @Michael,
    installing a additional USB card would certainly help.
    I am not sure if another card(s) would fit in my computer.
    I would have to check this out.
    Thanks for your advice.
    Fritz

    If using FMGS in a networked environment with server and client´s I would prefer to set static ip-addresses anyway. At least it beware you from doing what you do to look up the Server IP every time.
    It also makes it lot easier to setup simconnect correctly especially if other add-ons using the same interface simultaneously.

    Re: arcaze module - mip-buttons - jeehell

    Hi everybody,

    perhaps i can contribute to this thread.
    I am using 4 Arcaze USB-Interfaces with different Display- and LED Modules in my A320 homecockpit for glareshield, pedestal and radios. Overhead panel works with an InterfaceIT board 256/128 fromTEKWorx. P3Dv4, Jeehell FMGS, FSUIPC with WideFS, FSC9, MyTraffic6 and VoxATC are running in a networked surrounding with 4 PCs/Laptop/Tablet. Everything works fine now but i had a long period of experimenting and testing.
    Concerning the questions that are discussed in this thread i learned:
    - Arcaze USB Interfaces do NOT run without errors when connected to USB 3 ports, they need to be connected to USB 2 ports
    - most standard USB ports don't have enough power for the Arcaze Interfaces especially if you connect a greater number of displays ore LEDs
    - therefore you better use an USB-hub to connect your Arcaze Interfaces but external power to the hub is mandatory because the interfaces need much power
    - once your (FSUIPC- or jeehell-) connections are initiated, never plug off your Arcaze Modules and start your PC (at least under WIN 7) because all virtual joysticks that are dedicated to the modules will be renamed when restarting with modules plugged in; that means you need to rename all buttons in your FSUIPC.ini or redefine FMGS buttons
    - Arcaze Interfaces can be run on an interfaced PC via WideFS but analog signals are not transfered via WideFS, just digital inputs and outputs
    - i can confirm what bbruechmann wrote about IP-adresses in a networked surrounding, setting a static adress isn't that difficult, but if the PCs are connected to a DNS server together with other clients don't forget to exclude the static adresses from the adress-range in your DNS-server to avoid IP-conflicts

    Hope i could give some hints.
    Many happy landings!

    Uli
