FSUIPC and PM Offsets
Angelo Cosma posted a topic in FSUIPC Support Pete Dowson ModulesHello Pete, I am a 737 flight instructor for a company in Anaheim, Ca. I basically assumed the role of IT Tech as well so I am learning quite a bit as I go. www.flightdeck1.com We run a full 737 cockpit with 180 degree field of view using components from different manufactures. We run FSX Win 7 64 bit, with Project Magenta. I have most of the simulator dialed in, however there are a few questions I have for you, I did send these as well to support over at PM but they were a little vague in their responses and it still leaves me in my current situation. We have linked USB Yokes and I am trying to map the AP Discon button to do just that. I open FSUIPC hit buttons/switches tab, press my yoke button it shows up, check the box fs controls and include PM, I found "PM MCP AutoPilot Disconnect (Not 747)" which does work however it turns the AP off via the Disengage Bar and leaves the bar in the down position, so reactivation of the AP is not possible until the bar on our actual MCP is re-cycled. Is there a better way to do this? Perhaps AP Discon via yoke switch opposed to the disengage bar? They mentioned some sort of offset or to use the FSX default (Z) key, but we are using the PM Autopilot and not FSX's. Thank you for your assistance, I am trying my best to read the manuals and absorb all I can but I kind of just fell into all this, so I am doing my best. Also I am not sure if you can also provide assistance on this, but are you familiar with PM Sounds? There are certain audio files that should play but aren't and I would like to fix them. Fire Bell, Packs 1 and 2, Re-circulation Fans, GPWS Test etc. Project Magenta emailed me back saying it should work out of the box so-to-speak and closed my topic, obviously it is not working so I am seeking help elsewhere. Thanks Pete again for the assistance! Angelo Cosma
Gabriel Gbz posted a topic in FSUIPC Support Pete Dowson ModulesHello First of all I'm not a programmer. So here we go: I'm riding a homemade panel for use in various aircraft in FSX with the help of FSUIPC. I intend to use potentiometers to control the AP courses and selecting altitudes. However, I can not program at the PMDG 737NGX the FSUIPC. When I turn the potentiometers either way it only increases or only decreases. He wanted to increase when turned sideways and impaire when rotated to the other side. It was programmed by the FSUIPC mouse macro. FSUIPC Version: 4.70 OBS.: As I said, I'm no programmer, but if I explain how it works I can devote to programming. Sorry for my english, translate with the help of Google Translate. Portuguese version: Olá. Primeiro de tudo eu não sou programador. Então vamos lá: Estou montando um painel caseiro, para usar em diversas aeronaves no FSX com a ajuda do FSUIPC. Pretendo usar potenciômetros para controlar o AP selecionando altitudes e cursos. Porém, não consigo programar pelo FSUIPC o 737NGX da PMDG. Quando eu giro o potenciômetro para qualquer lado ele só aumenta ou só diminui. Queria que aumentasse quando girasse para um lado e diminuisse quando girado para o outro lado. Foi programado pelo mouse macro do FSUIPC. Versão do FSUIPC: 4.70 OBS.: Como já dito, não sou programador, mas se me explicarem como funciona posso me dedicar à programação. Desculpe pelo meu inglês, traduzi com a ajuda do Google Translate.
