Is there a way to do this.......


Recommended Posts

When assigning throttle, mixture, and prop controls for a specific a/c, can you make it so it assigns it to all repaints of that specific a/c, or do you have to do each repaint individually?

Case in point is the Majestic Dash 8, which has very different settings for reverse thrust, etc. It would be nice to just assign everything once, instead of for every repaint.

If this has been covered, I missed it then, sorry!

Thanks for the link! But I am still not understanding something. I see where you would change the name in the ini, but in the a/c cfg, every repaint has a different name. I thought they had to (not sure though). So how would you name the whole Majestic DH8-300 folder to do this?

Thanks!

Where are you reading about renaming folders? That's nothing to do with it!

As the link points out (it references parts of my FSUIPC documentation), unless every aircraft has a COMPLETELY different name (very very unlikely) you merely use a shortened form, or a part of the name, common to each one but different from your other aircraft. For instance, if all those aircraft were named "Majestic DH8-300 ..." you could just shorten the name in the INI to "Majestic DH8-300", and set "ShortAircraftNameOK=Yes". Alternatively, for all "DH8"s change it to "DH8" and set "ShortAircraftNameOK=Substring".

This is all just simple editing in the FSUIPC INI file, nothing changes in your aircraft files!

Please read the documentation and tell me why you don't understand it. I've not met such confusion about such a simple thing before. Why is it confusing, please?

I must admit i had a little trouble getting my head around it at first a few months, but when i read the above posted thread (2nd one) it made it much more clear. Maybe adding the example from that thread to the manual may help some folk in future.

Er, sorry, I'm confused now. Where in that thread is there a better explanation or example?
