    Wide Client VAS monitor question

    Just delete the lua file or rename the extension. All lua files in that folder run automatically.

    Course selector problem on PMDG737.

    Pete, The GF166 has an outer and inner dial. When changing frequencies the outer dial changes whole numbers and the inner one the decimal part. But when it comes to changing the OBS only the inner dial works. Don't think there's a solution for this. When in FREQ mode the outer and inner dials work fine. It seems a daft decision by PMDG not to go with the default OBS as they have done with the frequency aspect.

    Course selector problem on PMDG737.

    Hi Pete, ah, that will be it. No, I just programmed for the press, not the release. Never occured to me that also applied to a rotary control. Nothing back from PMDG yet but I reckon you've provided the solution. I'll report back once I've programmed the release. LATER: Well done Pete. That was the solution. All working fine now. Good man! 👍 Actually, there still a problem. If I rotate the knob too quickly the display doesn't keep up. I might have to abandon this and use the mouse. 😒
  4. Hi Pete / John, I have managed to program switches such as Probe Heat and Yaw Damper using the excellent guide in your FAQ section but I'm having a problem with the Course selector on the MCP - Captain's side. When I rotate the GoFlight knob only every other click is recognised. Consequently the two readouts differ. Any ideas? I am using #define MOUSE_FLAG_WHEEL_UP 0x00004000 and #define MOUSE_FLAG_WHEEL_DOWN 0x00002000 and the #define EVT_MCP_COURSE_SELECTOR_L (THIRD_PARTY_EVENT_ID_MIN + 376)  In FSUIPC the control sent when button pressed is <70008> parameter 16384 for increasing and <70008> 8192 for decreasing the value.  All those seem to work okay but the numbers change on every other click, not each click of the GoFlight knob. Attaching fsuipc5.ini for info.FSUIPC5.ini I have posted on the PMDG737 forum too. The relevant entries are the last two right at the end of the 737 profile.

    How to program joystick buttons and keys to control PMDG aircraft

    Having just bought the PMDG737 yesterday and discovering very few of my GoFlight switches and buttons work I’m indebted to @Paul Hentyfor his brilliant post. Thanks Paul. 😊👍

    Lua file not loaded but why?

    Understood Pete. I'll look to add a message to Aifreezer.lua which is appropriate. Hard to say the state of the KLM with so many runways at EHAM. Time for your lunch me thinks! 😀

    Lua file not loaded but why?

    Hi Pete, Thanks for that additional info. I've just landed on 27 at EHAM and a KLM taxied right across the runway. I should have done a GA but time was tight so I just applied a bit of power and skipped over him. Visibility was poor with cloud down to less than 1000ft so my view of the runway was non-existent until very close. I assigned a button to toggle Aifreezer but because there is no visible indication of its state I couldn't be certain if it was on or off. Can a message be output advising its state so I can be sure it's on?

    Lua file not loaded but why?

    Thanks Pete. I'll do that. My first venture into LUA on my FS PC.

    Lua file not loaded but why?

    Pete / John, Thank you both. I did read the manual - honest. I've just started another flight so is there any way for the lua to be loaded once FSUIPC5 has started? Or do I need to be patient until the next flight?
  10. I have this entry in my FSUIPC5.INI file... [Auto] [LuaFiles] 1=Aifreezer But looking at the FSUIPC5.LOG there's no mention of it. Is the syntax incorrect? FSUIPC5.log
  11. I didn't know about 4.4 so I'm happy to give them time. You're not daft, it's excellent customer service. 👍
  12. Maybe I'm impatient but I would have expected a question or request for additional info. You missed the e off your name. Shall I emulate Geordies and call you Pet from now on? 😁
  13. Hi Pete, No reply to the L-M post but I see 4.4 is released tomorrow. Rather than reinstall 4.3 I might as well install 4.4 and see if that changes anything.
  14. Hi Pete, Okay, I'll disable DLL.XML and enable controllers in P3D. Do you know the cfg entry for direct mode? I have only 4 USB2 ports so I'm limited. GoFlight stuff, mouse / kbrd take two. Check logs again. I'm sure I posted correct ones for each test.
  15. Final logs from successful launch in case they're helpful. FSUIPC5.ini FSUIPC5.log FSUIPC5.JoyScan.csv
