  1. Thank you for the fast reply and the information Pete. I will look for some numbers to try. And perhaps contact PMDG. Best regards, Ken
  2. Hi Pete, I would like to assign a control to a button on my CH controller that would toggle some of the panels that apparently can only be opened using the FSX Views pull down menu. The panels that most interest me in this regard are the PMDG B744 QOS II and PMDG B777 Lower Overhead Panels. If you could offer any tips or point me in the right direction I would appreciate it very much. At this time I have assigned controls to L and R sides of a 4 way hat switch that switch views as next view and previous view (in FSX default keys, that would be the "a" and "SHF + a" ). But I'd naturally prefer a more direct approach ~:) Best regards, Ken Boardman
  3. The 225 code worked perfect. I am also able to apply this FSUIPC procedure to assign a button that makes the Yoke disappear. Now I need to decide how I want to program my buttons. Thank you for your fast responses and all the valuable information. Best regards, Ken
  4. Thank you again Reinhard, for the list. I will keep it where I can find it when needed. And I will try the 225 (GPS panel) code asap. Do you happen to know how controls, buttons that are programmed in FSUIPC interact with programmed JStick, etc buttons (ie Saitek, CH, Thrustmaster) that have been programmed with the stick manufacturer's software ? Do they override, peacefully coexist, etc. ? I have always used the manufacturer's software (mostly CH and Thrustmaster) to program my buttons. Best regards, Ken
  5. Found the Window Idents in the Panel.cfg. I may be on the road to success. What generates the Window Ident(s) ? Or are the Window Idents arbitrary ? The Window Ident that I need to use for the gps window pop-up is "GPS_PANEL". When I enter this into the FSUIPC parameter block on the Key Presses tab, it does not transfer to the right hand side with the other entries /data when "Confirm" button is pressed and the key combo (CTL + /) doesn't work. When I experimented with a different Window (Radar pop-up) that has a number (instead of words), all the data transferred to the RH side of the FSUIPC window tab, and the experiment worked. I use a CH Fighterstick, Pro Throttle and Pro Pedals. I have been using the CH Control Manager to program the buttons. Is this interfering in any way with what I am trying to accomplish with button programming in FSUIPC ? Or does the button programming In FSUIPC override the CH programming ? Thank you, Ken
  6. Many thanks Reinhard. Still not sure how to determine the window ident, but I am going to certainly try figure this out. Best regards, Ken
  7. Thank you Reinhard. I am not sure where or how to apply the Panel ID parameters. Also, Where are the window ident numbers / parameters located so I can look them up? I apologize, but I haven't had much experience with this type of control assignment technique. Best regards, Ken
  8. Hi Pete, I'm still flying the FSX Acceleration. Hope to get to try P3D soon. I've read that the latest version is 64 bit. My PC is a bit "long in the tooth", so I'll likely install P3D after I build my next PC. The Capt Sim C-130 I've been messing with had a Radar pop-up assigned to the Panel.cfg "Windowo8", and the "Shift + 9" key combo. The GPS(500) appears as Window16 in the Panel.cfg with no keys assigned to activate it (Sim Icon activated only). Captain Sim assigned all of the Shift + .. key combos (1 through 9) to pop-ups other than the GPS. Since having a GPS toggle assigned to a stick button is more important to me (than the Radar) I decided to try "bashing" the Panel.cfg by copying / pasting the GPS (Window16) section of the Panel..cfg into the "Window08" section (deleting the Radar section). Basically replacing the Radar section lines with exact copy of the "Window16" GPS lines. I left the Window16 (GPS) section "in place" because I figured the Sim Icons GPS button function might be affected if I removed it (Window16). I then assigned Shift + 9 key combo to joystick button and it now toggles the GPS pop-up. A nice surprise ~:) The GPS Sim Icons button still functions correctly also. As they say, " I'd rather be lucky than good." Best regards, Ken
  9. Thank you for the fast, informative reply Pete. I haven't had experience with L:Vars or Lua but I will pursue your tips. Best regards, Ken
  10. Is it possible to use FSUIPC to assign a keyboard command that will make the default GPS pop-up window appear (and disappear)? The C-130's "Sim Icons" feature provides for this; but I haven't been able to determine how to assign the GPS pop-up function to a joystick button. Thank you, Ken Boardman
  11. The MJC Q400 rudder trim functions great now (with reduced sensitivity) via CH Fighterstick HAT #2. Thank you again, Ken
  12. Dear Pete and Thomas, Thanks so much for your help with this > for answering my question, and for pointing me to the right place for finding more info in the FSUIPC docs. Yes Pete. I am hoping to use the offsets to reduce the (FSX default) rudder trim sensitivity. Best regards, Ken
  13. Hi Pete, Below are some offsets I discovered in the Majestic forum. I hope to use them to enhance the MJC Q400 rudder trim control with one of my CH Fighterstick hat buttons (button 2). RUDDER TRIM LEFT Control sent when button pressed: Offset Sword Decrement Offset: x0C04 Parameter: 20/-16383 RUDDER TRIM RIGHT Control sent when button pressed: Offset Sword Increment Offset: x0C04 Parameter: 20/16383 I'm sort of new at this offset business. I'm thinking that one way or another these lines are intended to appear in the FSUIPC.in file. Is it possible to enter / add the above rudder offsets directly into the FSUIPC.ini file ( "[Keys.Majestic Q400]" section ?) via Notepad ; or must they be entered into the FSUIPC user interface while running FSX? I already have created an MJC400 specific profile. Best regards, Ken Boardman
  14. Hi Pete, I followed your advice, removing the Frame Rate monitor, and changing the sampling frequency to 20,000ms. I've noticed some improvement in RCV4 communication (less delay of responses), but I'm thinking that I may just need a speedier laptop. I've started saving my allowance ~:) Thank you again for your help with this. Ken
  15. Thank you for the VAS Monitor timing adjustment tip Pete and for the edit / illustration. I look forward to trying it very soon. Best regards, Ken
