  1. I am using the EPIC card. Quite an old product but to my mind still more advanced as what is available today as values are generated within the card and then sent to FS rather then sending signals to FS which turn the knobs. However, not every add-on aircraft has Offesets, so I am now programming EPIC to send button pulses to FSUIPC. By way of a macro and LVARs they will then manipulate the aircraft's input (A2A C172 in this case). Now I notice if I turn a knob quickly, it sends three pulses from EPIC to the Windows Game Controller. But out of these three pulses, only one goes through to the aircraft. The other two get lost on the way. I think I have explained in a non-technical manner what some of you might have experienced - FSX seems to be rather slow accepting inputs, so if they are above FSX's tolerance, they get lost. Can anyone help with this? Best, Holger
  2. Thanks a lot, this helped. No idea how this hotchpotch of *.ini came about, though. Best regards, Holger
  3. I have checked in FSX. The controllers are switched off, and I even deleted all axis in the controllers. This is my FSUIPC.

  4. Thanks for your quick reply. You are right, this happens with any aircraft. I am using two joysticks, one of them has been converted into a throttle quadrant. The problem happens when I move the throttle quadrant. It has never happend before. I have deactivated the controllers in FSX, so it should all be FSUIPC. I have even deleted the axis from the FSX controller menu. And in FSUPIC, the joysticks are of course assigned to different axis each. Best regards, Holger
  5. Dear Peter, I am running FSX with FSUIPC 4.9.7.2. I am experiencing the following: When I start a saved flight with the PMDG 744 QOTSII, as soon as I move the throttles, the aileron moves to a full right deflection and freezes. If I then load another plane, everything is normal. I have deactivated the FSX axis and am only using FSUIPC. Can you help? Best regards, Holger
  6. Do you think it is worthwhile trying LINDA? I installed it yesterday, but I got stock here "LINDA:: ---> ERROR:: Main system config not found! Run GUI and check configs!" I might attempt to solve this, but if LINDA is only a graphical interface for FSUIPC I can probably save myself this trouble? Best, Holger
  7. Interesting comment on the mouse wheel. It makes for fast changes when you use it manually. When you "roll" the mousewheel via flag commands and virtual buttons, it is as slow as the clicks. As if there is a buffer in PMDG which, when filled, only sends one increment while the other input is disregarded - until the buffer is empty again. So Lua goes via FSUIPC? I guess I will have to read up on Lua, then. Somebody must have found a way to send quick value changes to PMDG, however. I guess that otherwise it would be difficult to sell the expensive plug & play MCPs. The whole point of this hardware is to get as real as possible, and that's not the case when you keep your eyes glued at the MCP watching the values change at glacial speed ... I will also write to some manufacturers, let's see what I come back with. Best, Holger
  8. Pete - thanks for your reply. Some findings that might also be of interest for you: - As long as you use the correct number for the custom control and the right parameter within this, it does not matter where your mouse pointer is. A button command will do what it is told. - Holding the mouse button (actually doing this, not by a button command) yields an increase which is much too slow to be practical for sim operations. Using the wheel will get you closer to reality. - I was posting here since I expect that in a PMDG forum everyone will tell me to go the Lua way and to forget about FSUIPC. But FSUIPC for me is still the way to go. I will now post in other fora and come back with what I learn Best, Holger P.S.: Can you positively confirm that values cannot be written directly with PMDG aircraft? Doesn't this make all those expensive plug-&-play MCPs useless?
  9. OK, coming out of the test lab: With generic FSX aircraft, a value would be generated inside EPIC and sent via an offset to FSX. If I understand correctly, PMDG only has readable offsets but no offsets one could write to. I adapted my script - instead of generating values it now sends virtual button pulses. These buttons show up inside FSUIPC. For example, turning the course selector knob to the left will generate a pulse by a virtual button. The button is assigned via FSUIPC to the course selector (custom control 7008), with a respective mouse flag as parameter (I tried clicks and whell up / down - does not seem to make a difference). This works for increments in steps of one. However, my script recognizes the speed a t which a button is turned. With a script that sends values to offsets, these values will increase or decrease exponentially (i.e. first turn notch on the heading knob = +-/1, second = +/-2, third = +/-4 etc.). Eventually, this will stop at +/-30 (the 12th part of a circle). While the button is still turned quickly, every knotch wil generate an increase or decrease of 30 degrees of heading. Once the button is turned slower, the increments will decrease. If you leave it still for the fracion of a second, it will revert to +/-1. I adapted my script so that instead of increasingly higher values it sends multiple pulses. However, it seems that PMDG cannot digest a "fusilade" of button pulses (i.e. a high number of pulses within a unit of time). I had to put a delay of 0.2 seconds between the pulses, so they would be recognized by PMDG. With a smaller spacing than 0.2 s, they would be counted as one pulse, maximum as two. Whether I used the flag for clicks or the wheel did not make a difference. Plus, with a spacing of 0.2 seconds, PMDG would actually receive all pulses but bank them and change the value in the course selector much slower (about 3 increments of 1 within one second). This came as a surprise, as by turning the mouse wheel, you can increase or decrease the values pretty quickly. By mouseclick, you actually cannot. Even if you keep the mouse button pressed, the changes are slow. Unfortunately, this makes it unfeasable to use buttons for selectors such as Heading, Altitude, Speed, Course selectors, VS ... that need high changes in short time. So it seems I am back to my quest of how to send values to PMDG without there being writeable offsets ... If anyone has any advice, please let me know (change of hardware does not count as advice ;-)) I know that Peter is not using PMDG, but maybe someone else has been confronted with the same conundrum. Best, Holger
  10. Thanks so much. This explains a lot. It also provides a workaround for the lack of writeable offsets for all those who are using EPIC. I need some time to experiment with my scripts and then will come back with a description of the workaround. Best, Holger
  11. I just found out something that I cannot explain. But maybe someone here can: I looked at a Lua script (I am not familiar with Lua, I am using EPIC), and I noticed something called "endfunction". So I took the parameters from the Lua script and an On/Off combination for the buttons, and now I have "69992" for the customs control and "536870912" as a parameter when the button is pressed and "131072" when it is released. This works but I have no idea why. For the PMDG 744 I only used a pulse for the button and one parameter ("1"). Can anyone explain to me what I just did? Best, Holger
  12. Hi folks, Who else has trouble with the event "EVT_EFIS_CPT_MODE_CTR" from the 737 NGX SDK? I am sending a joystick pulse to FSUIPC, custom control 69992, parameter 1. This pushes the button, but it remains pushed. I also tried On/Off instead of Pulse, to send the parameter 0 when the button is released, but this will yield two no pushes instead of none. Anyone had the same problem and solved it? Best, Holger
  13. I will check whether it is possible to interface LUA between EPIC and FSX, i.e. EPIC would be talking to LUA like it is to Leeksicon for the LVD763, and LUA would then talk to FSX directly. With my current setup, EPIC talks to EPICINFO5 and EPICINFO5 talks to FSX. Does this make sense to you? Best, Holger
  14. I am still on EPIC, so I would need to modify my EPICINFO5.cfg and maybe also the FSUIPC.ini I know that you are not working on EPICINFO5 anymore, but since it was also working with FSX, I thought I would find some information. Best, Holger
  15. Apologies for not being sufficiently precise. Instead of "issues", I should have written "topic". With "controls" I meant "controls" as in "events" (the five digit numbers). I searched the User Guide and the guide for advanced users. I was hoping to find some examples for how to script. Best regards, Holger
