- Message 'Waiting for simulator'
Make sure that you've installed FSUIPC for your simulator. FSUIPC is for free and it is somekind of a driver for flight simulators which
let add ons like SimSounds connect to your simulator. Download here ...
MSFS2020: If you still get the message 'Waiting for simulator' make sure that FSUIPC has connected to your simulator.
Finally try to run SimSounds 'as Administrator'.

- MSFS2020 doors issue
- Unfortunately, doors are a big problem in MSFS2020. FSUIPC is not able to get the correct state from the simulator ... so SimSounds can't get the correct state of the doors either. On top of that, each manufacturer has its own door logic. If you are familiar with LVars, you can define one of the doors in FSUIPC so that the FSUIPC door offset (0x3367) represents the state of that door. Dealing with LVars is not easy, but it is one way to solve this problem. Another way is to use the door button in SimSounds to switch it from open to closed and vice versa.

- Enable ProSim FSUIPC support driver
- Define a FSUIPC gate in ProSim: Seatbelt sign: FSUIPC 8 bit U: 0x341D
- Define a FSUIPC gate in ProSim: No smoking sign: FSUIPC 8 bit U: 0x341C
Solution example: Taxi light, Strobes, Reverser (thanks to Bruce)
- Define a FSUIPC gate in ProSim: Taxi light: FSUIPC 16 bit U: 0x0D0C: set/clear bit 3
- Define a FSUIPC gate in ProSim: Strobes: FSUIPC 16 bit U: 0x0D0C: set/clear bit 1
Solution example: Reversers (thanks to Bruce)
- Define a FSUIPC gate in ProSim: Reversers left: FSUIPC 64 bit float: 0x207C
- Define a FSUIPC gate in ProSim: Reversers right: FSUIPC 64 bit float: 0x217C
Solution example: SimSounds does not show the correct passenger signs state
