FSUIPC, Saitek, Jabiru, SPAD ... oh my!
SEODave posted a topic in FSUIPC Support Pete Dowson ModulesHi everyone! It's been a while since I got back into simming - I've been working on a home cockpit which is finally complete! It's pretty basic but considering just how bad I am at DIY I'm extremely pleased with how it's turned out. You can see it here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/h10i9t6eesuhamd/20160321_141947.jpg?dl=0 Anyway, onto the problem. I've purchased and installed Iris Simulation's Jabiru J-160 (I'm a microlight chap) and I'm trying to get all the buttons to work with my Saitek switch panel. I've got a paid for and registered latest version of FSUIPC and it works superbly. However, for the life of me I can't map the buttons on the aircraft panel with the buttons from the Saitek controller. Here's what I'm doing: > Using SPAD assign a 'virtual joystick' and button for the "fuel pump" switch > With FSUIPC open I can import that button > I assign the "Toggle elect fuel pump" to it (using parameter = 1) > Nothing happens I've been using FSUIPC perfectly fine with some other controls like toggling the fuel tap. It's just the Saitek panel I'm struggling with. I remember, a few years ago, I got the Katana X and that came with a bunch of custom variables that had to be mapped. I seem to remember these already being available inside FSUIPC's list of controls. However, I can't find such a thing for the Jabiru. Having looked in the support section for Irish Simulations I know they use custom variables for the buttons and switches. Does anyone know how to solve me problem? I'm kind of guessing that somehow, FSUIPC has to recognise the custom variables in order to show them as options in the controls list. Any ideas how I might achieve that? Many thanks everyone! Dave
Hello all Simmers, Since long time I am looking for a solution to connect AND control my FT A320 by Saitek devices Multi Panel and Radio Panel. As the FT A320 offsets are not standard FSX offsets, it is not possible to connect e.g. "set altitude" to the Multipanel. Now since some month there is a new software available called SPAD.neXt (Saitek Panel Advanced Drivers neXt Generation). This is a new driver software for the Saitek devices. But unfortunately this software needs LVARs for connections and the FT Airbus doesn't provide LVARS. But a complete list for these special Offsets is available by "FSUIPC Exporter". For an extra development to integrate the FT busses in his product, the developer needs information about how many pilot are interested in that implementation. So please respond as much as possible on my "survey" here. Thanks and regards Alhard
Hello all! A newcomer to the forum here, and a complete beginner to FSUIPC, SPAD, Lua and all that jazz. My dilemma is that I do not know how to control and input multiple control axes, a Saitek Pro Flight Yoke and X52 joystick at the same time. At my ATC (Air Cadets) squadron, we have a pretty comprehensive setup, with Saitek panels, pedals, three screens and a projector. I'm in charge of the renovation project and a particular problem was the complications of having the two control inputs working at the same time; we had to reset FSX every time we wanted to swap. This is a problem and as far as I'm aware, is impossible in FSX's default binding settings. Using SPAD for the multitude of panels we have "shouldn't" be a problem (we'll see!) but I am clueless about setting up multiple axes to work simultaneously (even a method where there is a "sidestick priority-esque" system to use a button to switch between control methods is fine). Any insight is much appreciated and thanks to anyone in advance, Liam
