Added a 'Separate Lines' checkbox to the Flight Planning dialog. This option can be used to separate all flight plan points onto separate lines. Scroll bars have also been added to allow the display window to be scrolled.

User LatLon Fixes can now be labelled with names of up to twelve (12) characters in length. All User LatLon Fix names are now exported within the OPUSMSFS.PLN file so they will appear within the simulator's G1000/G3000 flight plan.

The 'Auto Import Current MSFS PLN Flight Plan' option can now be used to completely disable (ignore) all flight plan load events from the FS2020 simulator. Leave this option disabled if using OpusMSFS flight planning to create your flight plan thus preventing your flight plan from being overidden by the simulator.

OpusMSFS Beta Version 1.09.2 is now available for download on our website.

Download from http://www.opussoftware.co.uk/opusfsi/downloads.htm
 
 
Added support for User Specified LatLon Fixes with simplified creation using the OpusMSFS Map. User specified LatLon fixes are ideal for including 'points of interest' or geographic landmarks to a flight plan.
 
Double-clicking with the right mouse button anywhere on the OpusMSFS Map will now,
 
1. Generate a LatLon Fix of the form '<lat><lon>:USER'
2. Sound a short beep
3. Display a confirmation message on the map
4. Copy the generated fix to the Windows Clipboard
 
The generated LatLon fix is now ready to be pasted into a flight plan.
 
The saved LatLon fix is pasted in the usual manner either by right clicking within the flight plan text and selecting the 'Paste' option, or by positioning the text cursor within the flight plan and pressing 'Ctrl-V' to paste.
 
N.B. The inserted LatLon fix is automatically delimited with space characters. Once inserted, the 'USER' LatLon fix's name can be edited and replaced with any label up to eight (8) characters in length (e.g. STADIUM, BRIDGE or HENGE). After processing the flight plan is automatically converted to upper-case and correctly delimited with single space characters.

Improved the integration of the OpusMSFS Flight Planning, SIDs, STARs, In-Flight Map, and Weather Downloads.
 
Wherever possible focus is now returned to the FS2020 simulator whilst using the OpusMSFS Flight Planning, SIDs and STARs dialogs.
 
Added 'Opus Folder' and 'Sim Folder' button options to the Flight Planning form. These buttons allow the most useful Import/Export PLN folders to be specified without needing to 'Browse' for the location. The 'Default' PLN folder option is x:\OpusMSFS\Plans, the 'Simulator' PLN folder option is the standard MSFS LocalState AppData folder for the user's installation.
 
Flight plan points that are suspected to be erroneous are now highlighted in red within the Flight Plan Route list. Added a 'Auto Correct Errors' button option above the route list to simplify the removal of all 'suspect' points from the flight plan.

OpusMSFS Beta Version 1.09.0 is now available for download on our website.

Download from http://www.opussoftware.co.uk/opusfsi/downloads.htm
 
 
Improved Flight Planning with full integration for SIDs and STARs.
 
OpusMSFS can now be activated before running the simulator so that the flight plan can be defined ready for use. Alternatively, define and load the OpusMSFS flight plan at any time before flight, for example, whilst in 'World Map' mode.
 
A default 'out of date' set of SID and STAR data (procedures) has been supplied in the form of a Proc.zip file, located in your x:\OpusMSFS\Navdata installation folder.
 
Preparing The Default SID/STAR Navdata
 
If you intend using the default supplied SID/STAR data then the supplied Proc.zip file must be extracted and its '.txt' file content stored in the \OpusMSFS\Navdata\Proc folder.
 
The In-Flight Map can now be displayed without the sim active and used to aid flight planning.
 
The SIDs and STARs buttons of the Station Monitor form can now be used to examine and select an appropriate SID or STAR for an airport. The SID and STAR selection is aided graphically by reviewing the departure/arrival route on the OpusMSFS Map. A selected SID or STAR can also be automatically copied into the OpusMSFS Flight Planning form.
 
The OpusMSFS Flight Planning and NavData dialog has also been reorganised to allow SIDs and STARs to be selected and reviewed on the Map. Once selected the relevant portion of the SID or STAR can be cut and pasted into the current flight plan.
 
Flight plans constructed within the OpusMSFS Flight Planning form can easily be imported into the MSFS simulator using the following simple procedure.
 
Importing Your OpusMSFS Flight Plan into the MSFS Simulator
 
Step 1 - Display the simulator's 'World Map'.
 
The simulator's 'World Map' screen can be displayed by returning to the 'Main Menu' and then selecting the 'World Map' option.
 
Step 2 - Select the 'Load/Save' option or press the SPACE key.
Step 3 - Select the 'Load' option.
Step 4 - Select the OPUSMSFS.PLN flight plan file.
 
The OpusMSFS PLN file is automatically generated and copied into both the OpusMSFS install folder (e.g. C:\OpusMSFS\OPUSMSFS.PLN) and the simulator's 'LocalState' AppData folder.
 
Step 5 - Specify your start position (ramp or gate) unless you intend to start your flight on the runway.
Step 6 - You are now ready to start the flight using the simulator's 'Fly' and 'Ready To Fly' options.

Added 'Weather Update' and 'Monitor Destination' buttons to the In-Flight Map Options dialog.
 
Added both 'Sizeable' and 'Fixed' format Station Monitor windows to the In-Flight Map Options dialog. The preferred format (default Sizeable) is specified within the In-Flight Map Options dialog.
 
The Station Monitor window is displayed by double-clicking on the base of the required Airport/Aerodrome marker in the In-Flight Map. The Station Monitor can also be toggled on and off display either via the Options dialog or by assigning an OpusMSFS Shortcut in the Shortcut Controls dialog (see below).
 
The Station Monitor window aids flying the FS2020 sim by allowing the Destination (or Departure) to be monitored, showing all known details about the airport, including available runways and all communication frequencies, along with any nearby Met Station data (METAR) if one exists. The data associated with the closest Met Station within 64 km (40 miles) will be displayed. All Met Station data is updated whenever new METARs are downloaded.
 
On start up and after the In-Flight Map has been displayed for the first time (initialised) the Station Monitor will be automatically primed with the destination airport as defined within the current flight plan.
 
N.B. In the future the Station Monitor's SIDs and STARs buttons will simplify the selection of departures and arrivals prior to programming the G1000/G3000 units.
 
Added a 'Weather Update' button to the OpusMSFS Configure dialog.
 
Added a 'Toggle Station Monitor Window' button and key options to the Shortcut Controls dialog.
 
Reduced the footprint of the Landing Rate Monitor (Landing Analysis) popup window.

OpusFSI Beta Version 5.46.0 is now available for download on our website.

Download from http://www.opussoftware.co.uk/opusfsi/downloads.htm
 
 
Modified the FSXSERVER software to allow continued download of NOAA METARs for the older FSX and FSX Steam modes of operation.
 
Corrected a problem transmitting Live View Offsets from the P3DSERVER to all connected clients.
 
Validated and imposed acceptable limits for the reported (SimConnect) y-axis and z-axis body acceleration data. Previous versions can occasionally attempt to process garbage values for this reported data. These erroneous values reported by the simulator could cause maths exceptions to occur within the DHM threads. All such exceptions are now trapped and processed by the server program.
 
The DHM status is now reported in the main Spy window each time the window is opened (apart from if opened before establishing a connection to the simulator). If Live Camera is Disabled and General DHM Enabled the report will look something similar to,
 
 GEN  DHM Enabled DHM Thread ACTIVE and Running DOF Thread ON
 GEN  View 0 Camera N/A Turbulence 0 Throttle 2456
 
With Live Camera Enabled and a valid camera view selected the report will look something like,
 
 GEN  DHM Enabled DHM Thread ACTIVE and Running DOF Thread ON
 GEN  View 0 Camera 4, Legacy - Captain Turbulence 0 Throttle 0
 
Note, the DOF Thread is only activated when DHM needs to adjust the eye point.
 
In addition to the above the system will detect and report in the Spy window all changes to the DHM and DOF Thread status. This can be tested simply using the simulator's Add-On Menu. Select OpusFSI Open Spy Window to display the main Spy window, then use the OpusFSI Head Movements -> Disable abd Enable DHM options. Each change to the DHM status should be reported in the Spy window.
 
If required you can leave the Spy window open during flight in which case you may find it helpful to set the Spy Opacity to 70 percent in the Spy window's Options.

OpusMSFS Beta Version 1.07.0 is now available for download on our website.

Download from http://www.opussoftware.co.uk/opusfsi/downloads.htm
 
 
Added support for ButtKicker Profiles. All ButtKicker configuration and settings are now stored in a new format BUTTKICKER.DAT data file. As a result …
 
All users must re-enter their ButtKicker configuration and settings.
 
N.B.
 
If you have made changes to the default ButtKicker settings (options) then before upgrading you should use 'Alt-Prt Scn' to capture a screenshot of the ButtKicker Options dialog and save the image of your current settings by pasting into Windows Paint.
 
Added a 'Microsoft Flight Simulator Installation Folder' option to the Configure dialog allowing user's to specify any custom install folder location (re: the supplied help text).
 
Speeded up the CPFlight MCP status feedback via the MSFS SimConnect interface.
 
Software preserves the full configuration flight plan and weather settings after editing via the Config dialog. Previous versions could loose any modified flight plan after closing the Config dialog.
 
Corrected a problem in the 'Check For Updates' dialog that would wrongly say a new Beta version was available.

OpusMSFS Beta Version 1.06.0 is now available for download on our website.

Download from http://www.opussoftware.co.uk/opusfsi/downloads.htm
 
 
Added Flaps and Spoiler timings to the ButtKicker Options dialog. By default these timings are set to,
 
Flaps     Piston 2000 ms  Jet 4000 ms   Time Per Notch of Flap
Spoilers  Piston 1800 ms  Jet 2000 ms   Time For Max Spoiler Travel
 
The ButtKicker Options dialog now correctly refers to 'Piston' and 'Jet' aircraft, as opposed to the previous Light and Heavy labelling. Note, Landing Gear timings are not required as the ButtKicker software is able to use the actual gear travel position for the timings.
 
Added a 'Copy Settings To Other Devices' button to the ButtKicker Options dialog. This button can be used to copy all the current ButtKicker device options and settings into all three BK devices.
