Do I need to re-install or anything?


Or is it simply a case of adding the line to the .ini file please?

Hello Tony,


The  MagicBattery=Yes definitely works... I can assure you of that.


If you have a registered version of FSUIPC4, please try to activate the
option via the Miscellaneous Tab.


With MagicBattery=Yes, I can leave to Battery on for days! <LOL>


Incidentally, the APU is a "virtual" function. There is no connection to the
actual buss in the simulator.


I hope this helps.

Hi All


If you're planning on flying a 737 for IYP Air, My advice to you is execute
the pre-flight checklist at the last possible moment, to prevent the battery
from running out before you've had a chance to start the engines.


I added the line MagicBattery=Yes to FSUIPC4.INI, within the General
section, and this made no difference.


If anyone has successfully added this switch, I'd be delighted to hear about


I would have thought that FSX would allow the APU to keep things alive
before the engines are started, but no.
