Hi Pete, I found this thread while I was looking for a solution like HIDMacros is offering. What I am looking for is a tool, which recognizes multiple keyboard IDs AND which can send button commands to a virtual joy controller like PPJoy or vJoy. In the meantime I found GlovePie, FreePie, UCR, UJR, AutoHotKEy. But either the tool cannot distiguish between different keyboards or the tool cannot use virtual joy controller output simultaneously. HIDMacros would be fine, if I could use vJoy as virtual controller for the output sequence. Do you have an idea how to solve my experiment? If I would find a solution, I could use a second keyboard as an input for game controler output for a flight simulator FSX Add-On. If I could use FSUIPC for this task, this would be wonderful. regards Alhard
Hi, although I'm pretty new to all this I've managed to control the CDU through the PMDG offsets using both the FSUIPC Buttons & Switches page & through a Lua script. The info is out there but in a few different places so I though I'd post this for reference: Open up PMDG\PMDG 737 NGX\SDK\PMDG_NGX_SDK.h Find the address to write to by adding your event to THIRD_PARTY_EVENT_ID_MIN #define THIRD_PARTY_EVENT_ID_MIN 0x00011000 // equals to 69632 #define EVT_CDU_L_A (THIRD_PARTY_EVENT_ID_MIN + 573) So to write the letter 'A' to the CDU the address is 70205. In Addons/FSUIPC/Buttons+Switches under 'Control sent when button pressed' select <custom Control> & enter 70205. So far so obvious. What was not immediately obvious was the parameter. You might expect to just send a '1'. However, although this appears to work the first time, if you try to send another 'A' char it doesn't. You need to send the left mouse single click value as defined here in the header: #define MOUSE_FLAG_LEFTSINGLE 0x20000000 // 536870912 in decimal I then went on to do this through a Lua script that was called from the external hidmacros program: CDU.lua (Saved in FSUIPC folder: P3Dv3\Modules) : --[[ LUA Script that gets called by a hidmacros script with the key value pressed on the CDU. In hidmacros use the following script: HIDMacros.setFSUIPCInt &H0D6C,4,70205 HIDMacros.setFSUIPCString &H0D70,40,"Lua CDU" Note: The 1st line writes 70205, 'A' key to the FSUIPC ipcPARAM variable. Replace 'CDU' with the name of your Lua script (without the .lua extension) --]] LEFT_MOUSE_SINGLE = 0x20000000 key = ipcPARAM ipc.log("CDU: Sending " .. key) ipc.control(key, LEFT_MOUSE_SINGLE) -------------------------------------- P3D v126.96.36.19975 SimConnect v188.8.131.52 FSUIPC v4.959 hidmacros v184.108.40.2060
