Squawkbox offsets to keys via FSUIPC


Recommended Posts

Hi!

I've been trying to configure FSUIPC so that I can turn the Squawkbox transponder to STBY and mode C via the keyboard. I'd also like to configure the IDENT function the same way.

Found this topic and did everything according to Pete's instructions: http://forums.simflight.com/viewtopic.p2e53ba0ddf .

However, when I enter an offset and parameter on the Keys configuration page in FSUIPC and then click Confirm to execute the change, the offset which gets saved is always 0000x or something and the parameter is 00x. I tried it several times and my mind has now just ran out of ideas what could be wrong. Is it perhaps a bug in FSUIPC itself?

By the way, here are the necessary offsets http://squawkbox.ca/doc/sdk/fsuipc.php . I'm looking at Transponder Mode and Transponder Ident pressed.

Thank you!!

Enter hex values as x then the value. Do not enter x at the end,. Offsets need the x at the beginning (unless you are using the decimal equivalents, which is unlikely). The parameters can be hex (starting x) or decimal, as suits the value you need to set.

By the way, here are the necessary offsets http://squawkbox.ca/doc/sdk/fsuipc.php . I'm looking at Transponder Mode and Transponder Ident pressed.

Well, that says the transponder mode control is offset x7B91 (don't use the C/C++ format they give, just precede hex numbers by x, as documented for FSUIPC).

So Offset Byte Set, with offset = x7B91, parameter = 1 sets standby, parameter 0 sets normal. The ident is similar but offset x7B93 and parameter 1.

Regards

Pete
