?-SimC Offsets Status Feedback
spokes2112 posted a topic in FSUIPC Support Pete Dowson ModulesHi Pete, Been putzing around with a little trick found on FSDeveloper regarding corrected fuel flow & keeping turboprops running away during start and other conditions. It uses (>C:SIMVARS:TURB ENG CORRECTED FF:1, pounds per hour) through the XMLTools.dll interface. It works well but needs gauge coding per aircraft. I was trying to get this to work using lua by writing to 0x2020 (& the 3 others) so it could work globally on all turboprops. The feedback is --- doesn't work. The following code was inside of a while - do loop which does work perfectly but there was no return as wanted via logging. ipc.writeDBL(0x2020, 200) Tested some others too w/ ?-SimC in the write column - no go. I guess "it is what it is", just feedback is all. I know you're busy with all the P3Dv4 stuff, but if you ever get around to looking into it, getting the "Turbine Engine # corrected fuel flow" & "Reciprocating engine # starter torque" (another trick) working, both ?-SimC for writes, would be "the cat's meow" ;-) FSX Acceleration / FSUIPC v4.971b Regards, Roman
HOT START WITH CH THROTTLE QUADRANT
aerorexx posted a topic in FSUIPC Support Pete Dowson ModulesI have purchased the CH Throttle Quadrant and the FSUIPC 3.999, and have serious configuration problems with the separate mixture controls in the Aeroworxx King Air B200. Because Turboprops have Condition Levers Instead of mixtures controls configurating the axis just reach about 16% of the lever ride, when they have to reach 40% at Idle position. Fixing it, had to edit the FSUIPC.ini with the following values: Mixture1=-16383,-9602,8192,16384/8 Mixture2=-16383,-9602,8192,16384/8 The other problem is when start the engines. Always occurs HOT STARTS, even if using engine autostart (CTRL+E) with the keyboard. When using the the CH FLIGHTSIM yoke, without the Throttle quadrant there were no problems. How can I fix the HOT STARS problems with the CH Throttle Quadrant? Best regards, firstname.lastname@example.org
