  1. Thanks Pete, Another lesson learned! Ed F.
  2. Pete, A note of caution about the macros I just posted. It may be premature to post them ... while the program is still in some state of flux. I had a problem recently with FSX crashing on startup. Following the advice on the PMDG website I installed their hotfix. It appeared to resolve my system crash issue...... BUT ....... Upon returning to my original setup, everything looked to be in order until I tried to use my equipment - MCP, EFIS, OVH. When I looked in FSUIPC all of the button assignments were unchanged. My Throttle CH Quad, CH Yoke, CH Pedals and Saitek Radio were fine. Assignments came up OK in FSUIPC when I pressed the associated buttons. I went back with FSUIPC to create a new Mouse macro file and lo and behold the returned values were all different. Apparently the associated .dll file was changed by the hotfix. RED FLAG - anyone who has applied the same hotfix may fined my macros useless!! Apologies to anyone whose time I wasted... Maybe it's best to have the program stabilize prior to widely disseminating macros. Anybody out there experienced problems of this sort? Comments? Ed Fairchild
  3. Just noticed my typo in the last post ..... [Macros] 0_P739W_EFIS.MCRO should be 0_P738W_EFIS.MCRO (it can be called whatever you want.. just didn't want to leave it that way) Ed F.
  4. Here are some more recent macro files. I actually split up my macro files into macros titled as follows: 0_P738W_MCP.MCRO 0_P739W_EFIS.MCRO 0_P738W_OVH.MCRO Naming them this way puts them at the top of the command list.. a lot quicker when you're assigning as many buttons/switches as this. I've tried them all with my OVH and EFIS (both homemade using Bodnar interfaces) and they work in flight with the virtual cockpit or 2-D version. (Pete.. What is the max number of macro steps allowed? I know it's probably in your thorough docs but I've beem pretty busy button pushing to look! Sorry for my laziness.) Anyway here they are: Ed F 0_P739W_EFIS.MCRO [Macros] Module="PMDG_737NGX.DLL" 1=EFIS_AIRPT=RX44030*X8bcc 2=EFIS_BARO_DEC=RX43ef0*X8bcc 3=EFIS_BARO_INC=RX43ef0*X8bcc,31 4=EFIS_CTR=RX43f50*X8bcc 5=EFIS_DATA=RX44050*X8bcc 6=EFIS_FPV=RX43e70*X8bcc 7=EFIS_MINS_DEC=RX43e50*X8bcc 8=EFIS_MINS_INC=RX43e50*X8bcc,31 9=EFIS_MODE_CCW=RX43f70*X8bcc 10=EFIS_MODE_CW=RX43f70*X8bcc,31 11=EFIS_MTRS=RX43e90*X8bcc 12=EFIS_POS=RX44070*X8bcc 13=EFIS_RADBAR_CCW=RX43e10*X8b05 14=EFIS_RADBAR_CW=RX43e10*X8b05,31 15=EFIS_RANGE_CCW=RX43fb0*X8bcc 16=EFIS_RANGE_CW=RX43fb0*X8bcc,31 17=EFIS_RINGS=RX43f90*X8bcc 18=EFIS_RST=RX43e30*X8bcc 19=EFIS_STA=RX43ff0*X8bcc 20=EFIS_STD=RX43ed0*X8bcc 21=EFIS_TERR=RX44090*X8bcc 22=EFIS_VOR1_DN=RX43f10*X8bcc 23=EFIS_VOR1_UP=RX43f10*X8bcc,31 24=EFSI_VOR2_DN=RX43f30*X8bcc 25=EFIS_VOR2_UP=RX43f30*X8bcc,31 26=EFIS_WPT=RX44010*X8bcc 27=EFIS_WXR=RX43fd0*X8bcc 0_P738W_OVH.MCRO [Macros] Module="PMDG_737NGX.DLL" 1=OVH_ACMET_CCW=RX4c950*X8bcc 2=OVH_ACMET_CW=RX4c950*X8bcc,31 3=OVH_ANTICOLL=RX4e040*X8bcc 4=OVH_APU_DN=RX4df80*X8bcc 5=OVH_APU_UP=RX4df80*X8bcc,31 6=OVH_APUBLEED=RX49170*X8bcc 7=OVH_APUELEC1=RX4cc40*X8bcc 8=OVH_APUELEC2=RX4cc60*X8bcc 9=OVH_APUGEN1_DN=RX4cc40*X8bcc 10=OVH_APUGEN1_UP=RX4cc40*X8bcc,31 11=OVH_APUGEN2_DN=RX4cc60*X8bcc 12=OVH_APUGEN2_UP=RX4cc60*X8bcc,31 13=OVH_BLEED1=RX4dab0*X8bcc,31 14=OVH_BLEED2=RX49190*X8bcc 15=OVH_CABUTIL=RX4c970*Xe8cc 16=OVH_CHIME=RX49030*X8bcc,31 17=OVH_DCMET_CCW=RX48fb0*X8bcc 18=OVH_DCMET_CW=RX48fb0*X8bcc,31 19=OVH_E1_AI=RX490f0*X8bcc 20=OVH_E1_IGN_CCW=RX4dfa0*X8bcc 21=OVH_E1_IGN_CW=RX4dfa0*X8bcc,31 22=OVH_E2_AI=RX49110*X8bcc 23=OVH_E2_IGN_CCW=RX4dfe0*X8bcc 24=OVH_E2_IGN_CW=RX4dfe0*X8bcc,31 25=OVH_ELEC1_HYD=RX4d3c0*X8bcc 26=OVH_ELEC1=RX48fd0*X8bcc 27=OVH_ELEC2_HYD=RX4d3a0*X8bcc 28=OVH_ELEC2=RX4cc20*X8bcc 29=OVH_EMERLT_DN=RX4d520*Xe8cc 30=OVH_EMERLT_UP=RX4d520*Xe8cc,31 31=OVH_ENG1_ANTI=RX4d3e0*X8bcc 32=OVH_ENG1_HYD=RX4d380*X8bcc 33=OVH_ENG2_ANTI=RX49110*X8bcc 34=OVH_ENG2_HYD=RX4d3e0*X8bcc 35=OVH_FLTALT_DEC=RX491b0*X8bcc 36=OVH_FLTALT_INC=RX491b0*X8bcc,31 37=OVH_GEN1=RX48fd0*X8bcc 38=OVH_GRDPWR=RX4cb90*X8bcc,31 39=OVH_IFEPAS=RX4c9b0*X8bcc 40=OVH_IGN1_LEFT=RX4dfc0*X8bcc 41=OVH_IGN2_RT=RX4dfc0*X8bcc,31 42=OVH_ISO_DN=RX4da90*X8bcc 43=OVH_ISO_UP=RX4da90*X8bcc,31 44=OVH_LANDALT_DEC=RX491f0*X8bcc 45=OVH_LANDALT_INC=RX491f0*X8bcc,31 46=OVH_LNDGLT_ALLOFF=RX4ddc0*X8bcc,31 47=OVH_LNDGLT_ALLON=RX4de30*Xa1cc 48=OVH_LOGOLT=RX4e000*X8bcc 49=OVH_LPACK_DN=RX4da70*X8bcc 50=OVH_LPACK_UP=RX4da70*X8bcc,31 51=OVH_LWIPER_CCW=RX48ff0*X8bcc 52=OVH_LWIPER_CW=RX48ff0*X8bcc,31 53=OVH_MASTER_DN=RX4cab0*Xe8cc 54=OVH_MASTER_UP=RX4cab0*Xe8cc,31 55=OVH_PRBHT1=RX490b0*X8bcc 56=OVH_PRBHT2=RX4d2a0*X8bcc 57=OVH_PUMP_CTR1=RX4cdc0*X8bcc 58=OVH_PUMP_CTR2=RX4cde0*X8bcc 59=OVH_PUMP1_AFT=RX4cd60*X8bcc 60=OVH_PUMP1_FWD=RX4cd40*X8bcc 61=OVH_PUMP2_AFT=RX4cda0*X8bcc 62=OVH_PUMP2_FWD=RX4cd80*X8bcc 63=OVH_RND_PWR=RX4cb90*X8bcc 64=OVH_RPACK_DN=RX49150*X8bcc 65=OVH_RPACK_UP=RX49150*X8bcc,31 66=OVH_RUNTRN_L=RX4df20*X8bcc 67=OVH_RUNTRN_R=RX4df40*X8bcc 68=OVH_SEATBELT_OFF=RX4d590*X8bcc,31 69=OVH_SEATBELT_ON=RX4d590*X8bcc 70=OVH_STBYPWR_LF=RX4cb40*Xe8cc 71=OVH_STBYPWR_RT=RX4cb40*Xe8cc,31 72=OVH_STROBE_DN=RX4e020*X8bcc 73=OVH_STROBE_UP=RX4e020*X8bcc,31 74=OVH_TAXI=RX4df60*X8bcc 75=OVH_TRIMAIR=RX4d880*X80cc 76=OVH_TRIPRESET=RX49510*X8bcc 77=OVH_WHEEL_LT=RX4e080*X8bcc 78=OVH_WIN_OHT=RX4d280*X8bcc,31 79=OVH_WIN_PT=RX4d280*X8bcc 80=OVH_WING_AI=RX490d0*X8bcc 81=OVH_WING_LT=RX4e060*X8bcc 82=OVH_WINHT_LF=RX4d240*X8bcc 83=OVH_WINHT_LS=RX4d220*X8bcc 84=OVH_WINHT_RF=RX49090*X8bcc 85=OVH_WINHT_RS=RX4d260*X8bcc 86=OVH_YAWD=RX48e10*X8bcc
  5. Right you are! I should have mentioned the model in the note... this matches the hardware that I've made. Thanks for pointing that out. Ed F.
  6. Pete, Version 4.721 works fine. If people are not looking at the macro with an editor after making changes there may be multiple steps that confuse NGX. That happened to me first try. I just edited out duplicates and it worked fine. Also gave me a chance to clean up the key names. I know most users will know that but thought it might to be new to some reading this topic. I posted my MCP macro in another thread. Ed F.
  7. I just posted a MCP macro on Pete's support site. I'll be doing others tomorrow. I flight tested this and it worked fine with my homebuilt MCP. Ed F.

  8. Just started working out files for MCP, EFIS and Lower Overhead for the great! new 737NGX. What a plane! I'll attach the MCP now because I've tested them with my homemade MCP. Others to follow. Anyone else out there done other function? Hope these help. Ed F.

  9. I noticed after I posted the lua routine that I had left in a small segment looking at a variable called reply. This was set in my fsuipc.ini to allow me to switch between a number of key assignment sets on my throttle quadrant. Prior to luas display function I had difficulty displaying what keyset was active. That function in itself was a great plus and I elaborated on it in later lua sub to allow active display of all the key assignments. The Lua addon makes it easy to display lots of little prompt screens - it's great for semi-programmers like myself. Thanks again. I don't see a lot of ini files posted on your site. Any thoughts yea or nay? I'm always glad to share code ideas. (clumsy though some of mine may be) edfair :)

  11. Thanks Pete for posting this. I've used your program(s) for a few years. Both 3 and 4 versions and WideFS (all reg) and they are fantastic. SPAD prompted me to send a congrats message to his website - my first post ever - and I felt I should follow up with a very hearty thanks to you for your years of great work. - I did post some fsuipc.ini files to his web (at his request) and I thought I should check with you to make sure that was alright (sorry - I should have asked first) - He's interested and has lots of requests for PMDG stuff - mine is sure not elegant but it works!! One thing I love is the additon of LUA. My first effort - a direct substitution of your code example - was a radio display some users may fine useful. I've attached it here - If it's useful have at it. Any comments are welcome. The fsuipc.ini I sent needs a lot of work but works really well with an EFIS/MCP panel I built for a PMDG 737. I need to play more with your mouse routines - neat addon but I'm finding some PMDG panels particularly on a split screen setup have issues. Anyway thanks again for great stuff.!!! edfair
