  1. Thank you Reinhard for your efforts and suggestions/comments - much appreciated Regards, Dane
  2. Greetings Roman, I did exactly what you laid out - but for me it does not work. When I press the assigned key all that happens is the card turns to 66 degrees and that's it. You are not able to enter in a three digit number for where you want the card to be. Regards. Dane
  3. Thanks Reinhard, Attached is the NpCsetOBS.lua original script. I tried to create a script called NpCsetADF_Card.lua (also attached) but I have never done a script before and did not know what I was doing so it does not work. Regards. Dane NpCsetOBS.lua NpCsetADF_Card.lua
  4. THANK YOU - Thomas, Reinhard and Pete I see what you are all saying and I believe I understand. What I have done is what Reinhard suggested and I assigned a Key Press for: 65882 ADF_CARD_DEC and 65881 ADF_CARD_INC and it works very well. My wish was that there was a Lua NpCsetADF_Card setting that you could press the key and input the heading you want the card set to - but that's OK - all is good.
  5. First thank you so much for your prompt reply. Sorry - I should have indicated the sim - P3Dv4.5 I did not have the Parameter number set but I have now changed my settings for my ADF_CARD_SET as 66039. I am attaching two print screens one for ADF and the other for OBS, I am also attaching for your review my .ini file and my .log file. This is very strange as it still does not work. But what I do see happening is that when I press my control key to set my OBS heading and then when I press my control key for my ADF_Card_Set - the ADF does not move BUT the OBS does - this is very weird to me. Hope you can help. FSUIPC5.ini FSUIPC5.log
  6. Just curious if there is a key command that would allow me to enter a 3-digit number to set an ADF Compass Card. At the moment you can obviously turn the knob manually, but I would like to be able to adjust the compass card by a keyboard shortcut like you can with OBS, etc. I did setup a key in FSUIPC Key Presses for Adf Card Set but obviously I am missing something because it does not work. Regards, Dane Watson
  7. Pete - I now know the reason for this problem. I will post the answer from Keven Menard, developer of ChasePlane, so that others with this issue will be aware of the cause. "ChasePlane constantly sends camera position data to the simulator’s main view. This overrides any other command being sent to the sim by other modules/app. Operating the camera outside of ChasePlane will create conflicts like this. Due to the way the camera system is designed in FSX, we are bound to this limitation."
  8. Thank you Pete, I will follow up with ChasePlane
  9. Hi Pete, thanks for your prompt reply. I agree that it is an FS Control which gets sent to P3D - I did not think there would have been an issue. I do have P3D assignments all disabled and I even shut down ChasePlane. What I meant by "pushed down on the hat" is that after opening Axis Assignment I then clicked on Clear and then Rescan - then I simply angled the Hat button back towards me so that FSUIPC5 would recognize the Joy# and Axis#. Yes, if I rotate the Hat button through all the positions the positions show up in the little window in Axis Assignment. See my attached printscreen. Regards, Dane. EDIT: I just tried something else. I "enabled" the P3D Controller and setup PanView to the HatSwitch in P3D - BUT, it also did not work?!?! This is very strange. It for sure works in ChasePlane but not through FSUIPC5 or P3D - so I have deducted that it can't be my joystick - but I am stumped as to what it could be. Your thoughts would be appreciated, Dane
  10. I am not able to get setup for PanView with my Logitech Extreme 3D Pro for my P3Dv4.5. I have installed the latest FSUIPC 5152. I opened Axis Assignments - pushed down on the POV (HAT) - selected Send to FS as normal axis - selected PanView - clicked OK, then went back to P3D and nothing works. What am I doing wrong? I was using the pan view with Chase Plane but would prefer to have it setup with FSUIPC5 Regards, Dane
  11. To John and Pete - thank you so much for your reply and offers of help. However, last night at the end of my fourth day of getting my system close to 100%, I decided to load up P3D once more and re-configure my FSUIPC using the "previous" ini file. The results are great all is back and operating as far as I can tell so far very well. Regards, Dane
  12. All had been working perfectly for many months until the last Windows Update crippled my PC and I had no choice but to do a complete factory reset and three days later I have installed 100% of all files and programs. P3D v4.4 is working well as is all other addons except for FSUIPC-5. After installing I copied over my previously backed up FSUIPC-5 folder which has all my LUA, settings, as well as other special setups. Well FSUIPC does not recognize my joystick, rudder, or x-box controllers. The settings show up in the dialogue menus but do not operate. Is there an easy fix to this or do I have to start all over again (I don't remember some of my special setups from previously)? Attached are - Screenshot of Previous Folder, as well as Previous "ini" and "log" files. - all of these worked perfectly before, and I thought that all I had to do was paste it all into my new folder. Regards, Dane FSUIPC5.ini FSUIPC5.log
  13. Pete - you are absolutely brilliant - Mouse Macros was the way to get around the problem with controlling the two mixture levers with joystick buttons in this PBY Catalina aircraft by Aerosoft. It took me three goes at it to fully understand. My first two attempts I was not getting both mixture levers recorded in the macro for simultaneous increase and as well decrease. I ended up with a bunch MCRO files that were not correct - so I deleted them all and started over for the third time and it all came together. THANK YOU, Dane. Ps - this is what I ended up with in both the INI (including a Profile Specific spec for this PBY aircraft) and the MCRO files [Profile.PBY] 1=PBY-6A_Civil_Calypso [MacroFiles] 1=PBY [Buttons.PBY] 0=PJ,8,CM1:1,0 -{Macro PBY: MXTR DECREASE: MXTR DECREASE}- 1=PJ,6,CM1:3,0 -{Macro PBY: MXTR INCREASE: MXTR INCREASE}- [Macros] 1= MXTR DECREASE 1.1=RX1002e,1 1.2=RX1002f,1 3= MXTR INCREASE 3.1=RX1002e,3 3.2=RX1002f,3
  14. No Pete, I do know how to assign button events to an axis. I have many assigned. It is just this particular aircraft, the PBY, that is not allowing the assignment in the normal manner. So I do believe from what I have read that Mouse Macros hopefully will work Will find out... Thanks again...
  15. Looking forward to testing this out. Did a lot of studying last evening to try to understand. My only thought right now is - because I am trying to control a mixture lever which moves forward and backward will the macro capture that entire movement? I presently use one joystick button for mixture rich increments and another for mixture decrease increments. Looking forward this evening to checking this out. Thank you.
