    Find out control number

    If you're asking what I think you are, especially for an addon plane, you need to log local panel variables. Look into the "log lvars.lua" script and I think there's some documentation for this in the FSUIPC documentation. If it's a default aircraft you can probably find what you need in the offset listing in the documentation. But most addons use LVars. -stefan

    Parking Brake control

    If you're trying to use an axis for parking brake, you need to do it slightly differently. Is that what you mean? -stefan

    Lost Joystick Connection

    No, they change semi-randomly as windows sees fit (not exactly but for practical purposes you can treat it that way.) To avoid this sort of thing, you should use JoyLetters as explained in FSUIPC documentation. That's designed to avoid this sort of problem. -stefan
  4. Graham, It'd make slightly more sense for Pete to host it, so I'll ask that you contact him for that. Thanks for sharing the file! -stefan
  5. Is there a reason you can't just publicly share it? If it's just not having an easy way to do so, let me know, and I'll host it for you. If someone doesn't want it publicly shared, then whatever, I guess. -stefan

    Lua Socket 64 FSUIPC 5

    I think he's waiting on Lua to fix something, it didn't sound like anything he had control over. Needs a fix from upstream. -stefan
  7. Use Joystick Letters as described in the user manual. It sounds like they're being renumbered, which is pretty common. -stefan

    A2A Aircraft and FSUIPC?

    RogCamp, if you want I can send you some macro files that have binding for all the A2A controls for some of their planes, and then you can bind them in FSUIPC like any other button. The macros make the custom LVars that A2A uses bindable like normal FS actions. Send me a PM if you want it. Then just create a specific profile for each A2A plane (they all use a slightly different combination of LVars) and you should be set. -stefan

    Unable to register FSUIPC V5.102

    No problem, glad you're sorted! -stefan

    Unable to register FSUIPC V5.102

    The key for the P3Dv3 version (fsuipc4) will not work for the P3DV4 version (fsuipc5) as it is a new product that you will need to purchase from SimMarket. -stefan

    Makerwys v4.801 fails to make data files

    Edit: You say FSDT stuff doesn't work with P3Dv3, but this is with v4. Maybe you mean it applies to both. If it does apply to both, disregard this post! -- To keep replies in the topic you asked for, I'm seeing it create a MakeRwys_Scenery.cfg and then it creates the xml and other files. The MakeRwys_Scenery.cfg file correctly displays the FSDreamTeam, FlightBeam, etc airports. However, scanning both Runways.txt and runways.xml shows that the airports in those files are just the default ones, or potentially ORBX ones from their regions. Unless I'm misreading things. I ran MakeRwys.exe multiple times with the same results. MakeRwys.exe is 4.801, downloaded just a bit ago.

  12. Apparently not. I'll take a look at it when I get home. Thanks! -stefan
  13. I solved my own problem with the air = thing. I apparently copied an older debug version of that Lua in and the display is there plain as day. No idea how I missed that. My bad. Keybind question still stands. -stefan
  14. Hi Pete, Two issues I'm seeing, both potentially my error. First off, I have no key bindings normally. I was testing something, and bound the space bar to Mouselook Toggle. I decided I didn't want it, and tried to get rid of it via the following steps: 1.) Start keybind for space 2.) Hit "Clear" below the keybind 3.) Hit "Confirm" below the keybind and then "OK." 4.) Confirm key unbound, reopen FSUIPC GUI, and confirm key unbound in there. It doesn't do anything in the sim nor show up as bound when checking in the FSUIPC GUI at this point. However, after closing flightsim, I note that the keybind remains in the FSUIPC.ini file and I confirm it's back the next time I start P3Dv4: [Keys] 1=32,8,66734,0 -{Space: Press=MOUSE_LOOK_TOGGLE } Am I doing something wrong here? Or is there a bug? This is the only keybind I have in either the main file or the aircraft profiles (set to "Folder"). Second, I seem to have a green message bar about "Air = 49.something" stuck on the screen. I can't find the relevant logging option. The only guess I have about where it's coming from might be the one Lua I have enabled, the Carb Air one.

  15. Haha, just joking. It would be impossible to set my controls without fsuipc and Lua and such, so I'm definitely appreciative of your work. Of course I can wait - there's outdoors now that it's not the ice/snow half of the year here! I was just saying I'd lose a large chunk of my controls without it is all :) -stefan
