WideFS Roger Wilco PTT Key

Recommended Posts

Guest

I've just read through the recent thread with a similar name, but it seems to only relate to using the PFC.dll system rather than using FSUIPC's controls interface. Apologies if this has been aired before.

I'm trying to set up a PTT joystick button in FS that will activate the Roger Wilco transmit on the client PC. I've used the FSUIPC dialogue box to configure the joystick button to use the KeySend (WideFS) control, with parameters 1 and 2, for press and release respectively.

I've added the ActionKeys=Yes line, as well as KeySend1=RWon and KeySend2=RWoff lines.

However, for some reason this does not seem to be working. Is there any step I've missed? (WideFS is already set up and appears to be functioning normally with everything else).

Finally, there seems to be a slight variance in the manual with respect to the Roger Wilco controls:

KeySend=RWon

KeySend=RWoff

KeySend1=Rwon

KeySend2=Rwoff

Are the INI parameters case-sensitive, and if so, which of the above are correct? I've tried swapping these but to no avail. I've also tried assigning the keys on the server in the WideServer.ini instead of directly in the FSUIPC dialogue box, but again with no success.

Thanks in advance,

Jamie Fox

Okay, that sounds fine.

I've added the ActionKeys=Yes line, as well as KeySend1=RWon and KeySend2=RWoff lines.

These are in the [user] section of the appropriate WideClient.ini file, as documented?

No, that seems to be correct. At least it works fine with all the versions of RW I've tested it with. I cannot guarantee it will always work with every version, as the author seems to change the Registered message names used for PTT sometimes.

Are the INI parameters case-sensitive

No, not at all.

[Config]

UseTCPIP=Yes

ServerIPAddr=192.168.0.2

Window=75,81,593,489

Visible=Yes

ActionKeys=Yes

KeySend1=RWon

KeySend2=RWoff

There's your error. You have the parameters in the wrong section.

Oops! Always the obvious thing that's overlooked; problem now solved. Thanks for the quick response.
