  1. https://fselite.net/news/pete-dowson-releases-fsuipc-5-10-first-public-release/
  2. Pete, Thank you. This is great news. Add me to the list of people who don't mind paying for a new version. I have been using FSUIPC for years. Sim flight without it would be difficult for me. Ian
  3. Pete, If you undertake the task of converting FSUIPC to work with P3 V4, do you think that it would be feasible to create an X-Plane version as well? I know little about coding other than HTML. I was wondering if both platforms could be developed for in parallel now that they are both 64 bit. X-Plane sorely needs I/O software like yours. Thanks, Ian
  4. Pete, Thanks. I know it can be frustrating when people ask questions that have already been provided. I looked through some of the documentation last night but will zero in on the sections you referenced tonight or tomorrow. Thanks for the help. Ian
  5. Pete, Thanks. That is a huge help. Before I edit my ini, I have a few questions. Using "21=W3330<5000 RC,2,C65966,0" as an example, what does all of this syntax mean? 21 = button assignment? W3330<5000 = offset call for specified function below value of 5000? R= Repeat C= joystick assignment (side note - I like the letter idea based on the benefits you explained. Is switching to letters as simple as replacing the Windows assigned numbers in the fsuipc.ini with letters? 2,C65966,0 - no good guesses left. I'm assuming that C65966 is related to the reverse or throttle decrease function. Where should I insert the code? And yes, I agree, the micoswitch placement is bizarre but should work fine once I correctly edit my ini. Thanks for the help! Ian
  6. Pete, Thank you. If you view this image of the TQ6, the microswitches are visible as small white buttons inside the casing. It is entirely possible to engage reverse thrust whenever the micoswitch is in contact with the throttle lever. That can occur throughout the entire range of motion which is why I want to set fsuipc up to ignore the micoswitch input s under a certain axis value. http://www.avsim.com/pages/0304/gftq6rp48/gf3.jpg I noticed the newer version of fsuipc last night and will update. Did you view the post I linked to? Arjen stated that his fsuipc contained the following pertaining to reverse functions on his tq6 and that he modified this line for a fix: "My original lines in FSUIPC.ini for the reverse thrust buttons were : 21=RC,2,C65966,0 22=RC,1,C65971,0 And I changed these lines to: 21=W3330<5000 RC,2,C65966,0 22=W3332<5000 RC,1,C65971,0 This creates the offset condition that the thrust lever axis (separate lines for throttle 1 and throttle 2) output should be lower than 5000 for the button function to be called. Works like a charm now." I do not have any functions referred to as RC so I don't know where to begin. Thank you, Ian
  7. Hello, I am running FSUIPC Version 4.949h in Prepar3D and FSX SE. I am using a Goflight TQ6 throttle. This is the one designed to have reverse thrust operate by microswitches attached to dummy levers that contact the main throttle levers. While this works as designed, it causes an issue when the throttle levers are pushed to their max limits. It is frustrating to manually advance to TOGA on a takeoff roll and engage reverse thrust. I would like to set up my sims to ignore the reverse button pushes under a certain throttle axis value. Someone else managed to do this back in 2012 and posted a few lines from his fsuipc ini at avsim: http://www.avsim.com/topic/383125-goflight-tq6-reverse-thrust/?p=2450720 However, the FSUIPC version referenced in that thread does not contain the same code that mine does. I would like to implement the solution posted at avsim but I am not sure what text I need to write to my fsuipc.ini and where it should go. Here is a section of my fsuipc.ini pertaining to calibrations: [JoystickCalibration] AllowSuppressForPFCquad=Yes ExcludeThrottleSet=Yes ExcludeMixtureSet=Yes ExcludePropPitchSet=Yes SepRevsJetsOnly=No ApplyHeloTrim=No UseAxisControlsForNRZ=No FlapsSetControl=0 FlapDetents=No ReverserControl=66292 Reverser1Control=66422 Reverser2Control=66425 Reverser3Control=66428 Reverser4Control=66431 MaxThrottleForReverser=256 AileronTrimControl=66731 RudderTrimControl=66732 CowlFlaps1Control=66162 CowlFlaps2Control=66163 CowlFlaps3Control=66164 CowlFlaps4Control=66165 SteeringTillerControl=0 MaxSteerSpeed=60 Aileron=-16380,-512,512,16380 Elevator=-16380,-512,512,16380 Rudder=-16380,-512,512,16380 LeftBrake=-16380,16380/16 RightBrake=-16380,16380/16 Throttle1=-15227,-512,512,15613/40 Throttle2=-13986,-512,512,15989/40 Throttle3=-16380,-512,512,16380/32 Throttle4=-16380,-512,512,16380/32 Spoilers=-16019,16201/24 Flaps=-15843,15663/24 Thank you, Ian Fisher
