Hi Pete I am analysing the Control values used by FSLabs A320X to operate various switches for LINDA. For most they use FSX Control ROTOR_BRAKE (66587) but for others they use control 196881. I am using the LUA function ipc.control(value, param) to send commands into the simulator. The value of 66587 (ROTOR_BRAKE) is no problem but I am not sure that control values outside the normal range (e.g. 196881) are transmitted. Under FSUIPC Options and Settings users can set a custom control value from 65536 to 131070 (x10000 to x1FFFE). Does this upper limit apply to the LUA ipc.control(value, param)? I need to send params in the range 0x00010000 to 0x00FF0000. When I do send the control ipc.control(196881, xxxxxxx), I see in fsuipc4.log the line "FS Control Sent: Ctrl=196881. param:xxxxxxx" which suggests the control is sent but I am not seeing the expected effect. Any comments would be welcome. I am currently, using FSUIPC4 4.968 and P3Dv3.4 but the question equally applies to FSUIPC5.
Hi folks, I am trying change altitude on MCP by rotary encoder, unfortunately I am not sure if I send to ipc.control correct data ipc.control(70032, altitude) value in altitude is correct, I have there (100,200....1000,1100.......12000....) It works only for first three hundred, and then even though I change altitude value by rotary, the value on MCP will not change. Could someone help me? Thank you. EDIT: I tried to send it real altitude /100. This works fine, but only for increasing altitude. If I turn with rotary to anti-clockwise position, the value is decreasing, but altitude on MCP in FSX is still increasing. EDIT2: Solved, I don't know why, but if I send there ipc.control(70032, 536870912) it is decreasing. EDIT3: Sorry, I have one more problem. When I send there real altitude, it is increasing till 35700. Why? I also noticed when I quick turning with rotary the value which I send to ipc.control is e.g. 2100 but it sets only 2000.
hello pete hope is all good i have a question i bought the mindstar aviation G1000 software, since the MS1000(shortcut for mindstar g1000) have there own ini file for controls and they also offer not just a keyboard control they can control directly with fsuipc offsets or fs control , since the g1000 have a lot to program i run out of keyboard combination and by looking at the fsuipc control pdf i see there is a lot of empty control there is anyway i can assign the function from mindstar to this empty control ? or if you have another idea that can help me for example: in the ms1000 .ini file there is a command name PFD_DIRECT_TO = here it can be either CTRL+1 or FSUIPC:0x1234(some offset) or 0x23432(some control ) and basically from what i understand when i press on the pfd direct to button its going to the lua file (i am using linda) , looking for the function and execute the control 23432 which is the PFD_DIRECT_TO please let me know if it is possible or if you have a better/different idea THANK YOU VERY MUCH !!!!
