  1. Thanks, I'll check it out. it's funny that the nose up\down , heading bug, and speed changing all worked from the stock commands. It would be nice is Carenado had a forum or at least visited and replied to the one on Avsim.
  2. I have Carenado DA62 using the G1000. I've tried using ap alt var inc and dec to change the alt, but it doesn't work. I can do the hdg, vs with ap vs var inc and dec. I can inc / dec speed with fsuipc. I've asked on the Carenado da62 forum at avsim, but I don't think Carenado developers look at that site very often. I've had about 30 people look at the message, but no responses.
  3. Oh, the PMDG I have no problems. I have all the control codes for the 737, 777, 747. Those were the easies to setup. My problem is making a LUA file I.E. auto_brake_switch with a value/range of -1-6, and assigning one of my switches to inc and the other switch do dec. This is for the QW 787 in P3P v4.5
  4. Yes, but it does the same thing. I can live without that. I'm just trying to find away to use the buttons on my stick to turn the autobrake and tcas knob. PMDG has them in their key commands.
  5. That's probably right. PMDG lets you sync the the STD button. Plus they have all their events as control codes which makes it easier for me. And I can live with just clicking on the button. 2 of my biggest problems is the autobrake and the tcas button. I've been trying to set up the 2 so I can use my T1, T2 for rotating the know for the tcas, and my T3, T4 rocker switches for the autobrake. These are on my Saitek X52 stick. Most of my other planes that use the tcas and autobrake have keyboard commands that you can make keyboard letters then assign them to switches with fsuipc. But making a Lua file to make them move right and left is a little bad on the brain. I've looked at all kinds of lua stuff, but it gets confusing.
  6. I'm using a simple LUA file to switch the capt baroset STD select. The button is a stay constant on button. It comes on, but when I push the button again it doesn't change the select button on the panel. Then when I push again it changes. I have to push the button 2x to get the panel to go on then off, then 2x to go back on. I have other aircraft that I use constant on/off switches/buttons that it works. STD Select.lua

    Ejets P3D v4

    It turned out to be the database. I let Navigraph fms data manager do a search and now it does the correct database. I guess ejets in fsx:se used the mdb and not db3 database files. It's working now.

    Ejets P3D v4

    Yes I did and I disable my anti-virus software also till I'm done. I also have my sims excluded from the AV so they don't get messed up. I'll reinstall again. Oh and one more thing is the airac when I install has nd.db3, but when I update with navigraph, its nd.mdb. Shouldn't they match?

    Ejets P3D v4

    Well most of the time when I start either the 175 or 195 in cold/dark the VC clickspots don't work and I can't start it up. If I use ready to start, the displays are blank and the overhead clickspots don't work. The 2d popups do, but nothing turns on. Sometimes after going to an airport with the default plane and select the house plane, the VC works and the displays are on and the overhead panel works. Then I switch to one of the addon planes like the 2016 Alaska 175. It might work or work for a little while. It's pretty iffy. I'd like to get it working like it should. This is for p3d v4.4

    Ejets P3D v4

    I bought the wilco ejets 175/195 for p3d v4 and been having problems getting it to work. I contacted wilco about it. Then today I got an email from them saying: Dear Sir, The E-Jets serie is not compatible with P3Dv4.X. To let us keep track of this e-mail, please reply without changing the content. Thank You ! Best regards, Christophe Modave Technical Consultant EASA ATPL(A) Yet on the product page it said it was for (P3D v4). After I installed it, it's folders are Feelthere. Is the ejets on the Feelthere site the same as Wilco's? If not, I'll get a refund from Wilco and get the one on Feelthere's .

    QW787 Offsets

    The only things I've been able to do is the exterior lights I.E. landing taxi... They use the fsuipc standards. I can also do the autobrakes, and toggle the efb and the fmc to make it easier to use. It would be nice if they did like PMDG has their's.
  12. It turns out that the wxr tilt that I had used was for the standard 744. Then the section that said for the 744f and 747-8 had the left and right wxr tilt, and that one worked. I have three 3-way toggle switch which springs back to center like the switches I have on my Saitek x52. So when I push up the tilt inc. and when I push down it dec. It works very well. And the control number for the left wxr tilt was 71034.
  13. I've got one control I've been trying to get working. I want to use a 3-way switch to inc/dec the wrx tilt. For the 747 the control number is 70756 from the sdk. I've tried the mouse flag left single and right single, and the mouse wheel up / down parameters. Yet none work. I have other controls that work, and my 737 and 777 all work fine. Any one have this problem?

    Tecnam p2006t

    Thanks Pete
  15. I have wilco's tecnam p2006t. I've been trying how to assign the chokes to buttons. I have L:tecnam_lever_choke1_number, and L:tecnam_lever_choke2_number. I know how to use trim up/down or inc dec with buttons. But the chokes just have a number. I have lua files, but I want to use the T1,T2,T3, and T4 to move the chokes. T1 would be left engine up and T2 would b left engine down. Then T3/4 would be for the right engine. I don't know how to make the numbers go higher or lower with the buttons.
