  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. Ass
  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!
  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. [Macros] Module="PMDG_737NGX.DLL" 1=MCP_N1=RX48bd0*X8bcc 2=MCP_IAS=RX43480*Xe8cc 3=MCP_LVL CHG=RX48c90*X8bcc 4=MCP_HDG=RX43740*X8bcc 5=MCP_APPR=RX48cd0*X8bcc 6=MCP_ALTHLD=RX48d10*X8bcc 7=MCP_VS=RX48d30*X8bcc 8=MCP_IAS_DN=RX48c50*X8bcc 9=MCP_IAS_UP=RX48c50*X8bcc,31 10=MCP_CRSA_DN=RX48b90*X8bcc 11=MCP_CRSA_UP=RX48b90*X8bcc,31 12=MCP_HD_DN=RX437c0*X8bcc 13=MCP_HD_UP=RX437c0*X8bcc,31 14=MCP_ALT_UP=RX48cf0*X8bcc,31 15=MCP_ALT_DN=RX48cf0*X8bcc 16=M
  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 o
  10. Sorry hit the submit button without the Lua attachment.

  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 l
