  1. Hi, Just two things to add: First: FSUIPC is the most valuable add-on for the simulator and it's absolutely worth the price, if you seriously work with external hardware. Second: The support is outstanding in the community. Every single question/problem is handled by Pete and brought to a solution. And all enhancements are free of charge Think about that. Reinhard

    Active Window

    Hi, ext.focus() without a parameter sets the focus back to FSX/P3D Rgds Reinhard
  3. Hi, Reading the code provided, I assume Barlow just used code out of LINDA. The used functions like DspShw make me thinking in this direction. Barlow also wrote, that he found some code on the internet. So the provided code never will run, if he references other functions which are not defined. Rgds Reinhard
  4. Hi, This is a problem on your side. Many pilots like me are flying this plane without the problems you have. I assume, you have some double assignments ( simulator and FSUIPC). Rgds Reinhard

    Help with making Mouse Macro

    Ahh - interesting to know. I am currently still on V3.4. But in two weeks, when I will have moved to my new flat, I will upgrade my system to V4. And then lets see, if this works now also for XML gauges. Thanks for upgrading my knowledge... Rgds Reinhard

    Help with making Mouse Macro

    Hi, The Blackbox A320 uses XML gauges. They are not compiled with the SDK and therefore mouse macros won't work with that plane. But the BBS A320 uses a lot of Lvars, which you could control via LUA modules. Alternative you can create a macro file setting these Lvars, if you don't want to program LUA modules. Then you could assign these macros to buttons. Anyway it means a little bit reading in the FSUIPC documentation. And you have to understand the meaning of the Lvars, which you can extract via the sample LUA dumping all Lvars used. Rgds Reinhard
  7. Hi, Simulator, aircraft, etc. ?!? Without any information you won't get an answer. Rgds Reinhard

    Majestic Dash8 tiller assignment

    Hi, The Majestic Q400 tiller control must be configured via the Q400 control panel application. The setting is stored in the INI file, which you find in the aircraft directories. You have several options to define, which axis controls the tiller. Configuration via FSUIPC only is not working. Rgds Reinhard
  9. Pete, A quick question: Are there other event types, where the function is called initially to initialize things? A quick check in the documentation did not show other types? This would be good to know, to identify and possibly ignore such initial calls when starting up the LUA modules. Thanks in advance. Reinhard
  10. Hi, If you have the PRO version of the Q400, you might have enabled the 125Hz control of axis in the Q400.ini file. Check, if you have assigned there some axis values. You should assign the axis via that mechanism instead of FSUIPC for the Q400, as it works much better for the Q400. But: This is only, if you use the PRO. Rgds Reinhard

    Macro Mouse Code

    Hi, A small hint, how to do this efficiently. If you have assigned macros to buttons, they reference the macros via their number. So if you create a new version of the mouse macros, they must get the same numbers as before. How to achieve this? I typically record the new mouse macros to a new temporary macro file. The I copy the recorded values over to the old file. By that you are just replacing the entry points generated b the mouse macro utility without losing your assignments. At the end I delete the temporary macro file and delete the reference to it in the FSUIPC.INI file. I hope this helps to recreate the macros for the new version. Rgds Reinhard
  12. Hi, You could also check LINDA on AVSIM for the Q400. There you will see, how they connected the Q400 to buttons via these XML functions. It's a bit tricky, as you have to calculate some hash codes for their functions via a provided tool. Maybe this solution ist the best for you, if you are not experienced in LUA coding. Rgds Reinhard
  13. Hi, For the Q400 you should use the XML Interface via LUA code published by Majestic (the forum is down at the moment - so you have to wait until they are online again to search for details). That works perfectly. For some buttons you might assign them directly in the Q400.ini file (see 125Hz interface). I assume, you have the PRO version. Rgds Reinhard
  14. Hi, A clear rule, which I follow strictly: If you work with FSUIPC, then configure things only via FSUIPC. If you want to use the own software, then stay with that software. Any mix of assignments, software components, etc. complicate things. And failures are not clear, where they have been created. I did everything via FSUIPC and LUA programming. No need for specific Saitelk or GoFlight software. Rgds Reinhard

    Tecnam p2006t

    Hi, Check the "Advanced User Guide" for the chapter "Macros to change Lvars". You can increment/decrement Lvars via macros. And then assign these macros to buttons. Pete built so many goodies into his product - it's always astonishing, what you can do with that fine piece of software. Rgds Reinhard
