Greetings fellow members, For new year resolution, I have decided to make a cockpit control panel switch for myself. I have been using the Linda module and fsupic registered for fsx se. I just ran into a problem . I fly the aerosoft extended . I use the Linda module for button assignment for the aerosoft airbus. For my home cockpit , I am planning to use potentiometer for setting the ALTITUDE , SPEED , HEADING VALUES . But the problem is the Linda module for the airbus extended contains the respective commands for button assignment only . But, as a potentiometer will be an axis assignment , I want to assign the setting for potentiometer. In fsupic axis assignment page , although there are various option available for changing the ALTITUDE and other values, but they don't work in airbus extended. Unfortunately, I have no knowledge of programming to create my own files. Can you please provide a solution to the problem which will enable me to assign the altitude speed heading of the airbus extended to the potentiometer using axis assignment page , or if you have more better option please do advise. Your assistance is highly appreciated. Many thanks, Good day,
MJ Dash Overhead Panel Pots
Rabc101 posted a topic in FSUIPC Support Pete Dowson ModulesHi Pete, First ever post on a forum for help! I have the BU0836X and BBI-32, both from Leo Bodnar. I also ordered a 10k pot (Leo Bodnar) and rotary switch and have a rotary encoder on order. I am building my own multi-panel to use with the MJ Dash 8 Q400. I am familiar with your software at a semi basic level i.e. I have all my control surfaces reverse thrusters working perfectly, thanks to your excellent software and guides :-) The Issue: I am using a 10k potentiometer connected to the BUX board via the analouge (Dial) input to control the overhead panel brightness knob using a mouse macro which I have working using the guide, the problem I have is that I can't get the knob in the virtual cockpit to turn through the full 100% of travel. I tried using the full 10 ranges for action available in the axis assignment with each assignment being a short range -- when testing the travel on the potentiometer I realised that Majestic have the rotary knob as 32 seperate switched positions, each increment turning the dial 3% of the full travel, so when I turn the potentiometer clockwise the most travel I can achieve on the virtual knob is 50%. (This would be 25%, however I have doubled this with a within range and then exiting range command in the axis assignment). So, I have 32 positions in total. But I only have 10 commands to switch positions. The 10 can be doubled to 20 using the "range exited control sent" checkbox -- but what about the remaining 12 positions? I should also point out I have not yet started on the brightness down, just to keep it as simple as possible for now :-\ Given these issues I am wondering if it will even be possible to acheive the full 100% of travel (Up & Down) with a potentiometre. Should I use a 360 Deg rotary encoder to do the job, or if there is an alternative approach using the potentiometer?? Any expertise would be greatly appreciated!! Many Thanks in advance Robert
Saitek Throttle Not Synchronised
MD114Ever posted a topic in FSUIPC Support Pete Dowson ModulesHello, :razz: I am having problems with my Saitek throttle quadrants ; the throttle levers are not synchronised at the same positions. For Example, I could have them In the exact same position (physically) on the quadrant, but on the simulator I get different output, It may only be 3-4% of a difference in throttle but asymmetrical thrust Is actually quite a problem in the simulator. The two throttle levers that aren't synchronised are both on the same quadrant which makes it even more strange :???: . I have FSUIPC installed and I have tried mapping the throttle controls into there to see if It makes a difference, but it remains the same. If someone has a workaround for this in FSUIPC to calibrate the throttle positions to be the same I would be very appreciative if you could help me, Thanks in advance! Kriss
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.
