EPIC, FSX and VS control


Recommended Posts

For all of you EPIC users out there...

How are you handling Setting of VS? With ALT, HDG and SPD, it's easy enough to go through axis values in EPICINFO, but for VS I've always used joystick button events to Inc/Dec VS and then simply read the VS value back into EPIC to make it a psuedo-closed loop system.

PM has an offset where just by talking to it, you can inc/dec VS. I was wondering if there was a similar facility now for FSX or are we still relegated to using the game controller API?

I've not used EPIC for a long time, but axis values could surely be used for V/S too if needed? Is it the EPIC negative number problem?

PM doesn't change for FSX, so why isn't the same facility there? FS itself has always had INC/DEC facilities too of course, in FSX just as in all previous releases -- AP VS VAR INC and DEC. These are the ones used by mouse clicks on the MCP.
