Can't turn on Mode C on vPilot [FSX: SE]

So after ages of googling the solution, here I come.

I usually fly A321 on VATSIM. During approach, the ATC asks me to squawk C, but I can't. As soon as I click on Mode C on vPilot, it turns off immediately.

Also, I've read somewhere that you need to set the knob to TA/RA or something like that, but there's no freaking knob in A321!

Help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Which A321 are you flying?

The default one that comes with the game. (There is a knob, but I can't click on it).

Thanks for the help though, but I already fixed it out. All I had to do was uninstall FSUIPC and now I'm able to squawk mode C using vPilot client.

vPilot has always coexisted with fsuipc in the past. In fact, fsuipc was necessary in order to make the transponder panel function in some add-on aircraft. (Specifically, those that support the Squawkbox FSUIPC offsets.) I don't know why people are suddenly having issues with FSUIPC. Maybe they broke something.

Yes, I was using the King Air, and I also tried the A321 because I had just recently used that aircraft, and MODE C did not work there either, when it used to work just fine. I would try and click on the MODE C button in the client, and it would just flash, not turning on.

Update: It must be something to do with FSUIPC, I delete FSUIPC and vPilot will now squawk Mode C. I am going to be lookin into how to try and get FSUIPC to work with vPilot Mode C 

 

Edit: I reinstalled FSUIPC, and Mode C did not work in vPilot, so it must be something with FSUIPC. I am going to try and find an older version of FSUIPC and see if that works.

Have you read the FSUIPC documentation? There's a setting to adjust what it does when the transponder changes. I think it and VPilot are doing the same thing and stepping on each other.

Cheers!
