  1. Hi Rhys, The MD530F from Milviz only has a VC. But defining views with dedicated cockpit cameras (showing only the interior) is a very simple task. So if you have a separated outside view (what I assume that you have, as you are building a small cockpit), then you can arrange your camera views on your cockpit monitor(s). I am Using a Samsung ultra-wide 32:9 screen for the outside view and below two touch screens for the cockpit view (pilot/copilot) beside some GoFlight hardware. Here you find the manual: https://milviz.com/Online_products/Manuals/MV_MD530F_rev.pdf An here a review: http://www.raysaviation.mono.net/upl/11588/MilvizMVMD530LittleBird.pdf Rgds Reinhard
  2. Hi, Which helicopter add-on are you using as a base for your implementation? I own the Milviz MD500 and in that product the start procedure is exactly implemented according to the video. Rgds Reinhard
  3. Hi, In the documentation folder of the Aerosoft Airbus you will find a document "Vol7-Thrust Lever Setup.pdf". In that document two methods of setting up your controls are described: Without and with FSUIPC. Follow these instructions and it will work. The most important sentence: Rgds Reinhard
  4. Hi, I think, you clicked on the tag instead of going into the subsection of the useful programs and download the latest ZIP from there. I have just tested it and it works as planned. Rgds Reinhard
  5. Hi, Some things you might check, if you have an ON/OFF switch but only found a toggle command in the command list: Check, if there is an corresponding offset available, which you could use to invoke set/clear instead toggling If the offset is read-only, you might consider offset conditions in your button programming Check if there are Lvars available in the specific plane, which you could use to set/clear the respective switch If nothing else worked, you could check, if there are distinct click spots available in the gauge for on/off. Or if on/off is triggered by different mouse buttons. In that case you could use mouse macros, if the gauge is supporting it. A good starting point is also to check, if there is a LINDA module available for that specific plane. Maybe you get there a hint, how to operate the specific switch. Rgds Reinhard
  6. Hi, A better way to toggle these switches is by setting the following Lvars to 0 or 1: L:AB_PDS_Eng1Master L:AB_PDS_Eng2Master You can do this either by a small LUA script or by creating a "normal" macro toggling these variables. See page 39 in the Advanced User Manual. Then you simply can assign this macro to your button. Also many other switches can be operated by that method. It's way better compared to the mouse macro, as this method works across engine variants on all A3xx planes from AS. Rgds Reinhard
  7. Hi, There is an easy solution, which I use since the beginning: When I download the ZIP file, I save it as FSUIPC_xxx.zip (with xxx being the version). By that I always know, which version I am installing and I can step back if there is a problem with the latest release (which did not happen as the tool is perfect). So this can be solved easily. Rgds Reinhard
  8. John, Thanks - no hurry and prepare for the future 😉 Rgds Reinhard
  9. Dear Pete, Dear John, Is there any chance to get in a future release of FSUIPC access to these Simconnect functions: SimConnect_DockView SimConnect_UndockView The reason: If you want to move views (e.g. panel pop-ups) to different screens dynamically in a multi-monitor environment, they must be unlocked. While you can save such views in P3D 4.5 on the main monitor as undocked window, this doesn't work for example on already undocked windows on a secondary monitors. There these panel views are always docked - even if you save the scenario as undocked. Loading them dock these views always. Manually I can unlock them and then move them with your ext.position function in LUA. But for unlocking them I have no function. Best regards Reinhard
  10. Hi, Thanks for sharing the LUA. Now I know, where you are coming from. You are using the relatively old FSX NumPad Control Utility from Al Klayton, which can be found here: https://simviation.com/1/browse-Utilities-65-5?mark=49328#49328 This is a set of LUA files, which provide the possibility to enter values for the radios via the NumPad. But checking the ZIP file I found, that there is also an ADF routine included to set the ADF. Why aren't you using this routine? Has your aircraft two ADFs (ADF1 and ADF2)? Be aware, that these modules typically will work with standard airplanes. If you use a specific add-on aircraft with an own implementation of the radios, these scripts will not work. And in the standard ADF implementation of FSX there was only one ADF implemented. ADF1 and ADF2 has been added later, as far as I remenber. If you want to adopt these routines, you should check the routine"NpCkeyData.lua". There the actual numbers are transferred to the respective radios via ipc.control calls. So I assume, you have to learn LUA programming to extend the functionality of these modules 😉 Or you contact Al Klayton, if he is still around in the flight simulator scene. Another option is to buy some hardware add-on (Saitek radio panel or similar). You will see, that this makes more fun and realism than typing the numbers via the keypad. Rgds Reinhard
  11. Hi, If you could share the file "NpCsetOBS.lua" here, there is a good chance to modify it in a way that you can use it. Rgds Reinhard
  12. Hi, Thomas answered already perfectly - the screenshot showed the misunderstanding clear. For the OBS: In that case you are triggering a LUA routine "NpCsetOBS.lua". That's a complete different way to trigger an action. You could also experiment with the Inc and Dec commands to check, if the ADF is reacting. If this is an commercial add-on plane, it's not always guaranteed, that they use the standard simulator functionality in their gauges. Rgds Reinhard
  13. Hi, You did not mention, which simulator you are using. In P3D V4 you have thre controls for ADF Card: 65882 ADF_CARD_DEC 65881 ADF_CARD_INC 66039 ADF_CARD_SET Which parameter did you use for ADF_CARD_SET? Please show a screenshot, how you did configure your key. RGDS Reinhard
  14. Hi, There is a double-quote missing in your command: handle, error= ext.run("C:\\SIOC.exe", "EXT_KILL"). Rgds Reinhard
  15. Hi, Please check the section about compund button conditions in the advanced user manual. There you should find the information you are looking for. Rgds Reinhard
