Yes. But you have to use WideFS -- usually you would then also run the FS appplication (e.g. Squawkbox) on that other PC too. Under WideFS you assign KeySends to "RWon" and "RWoff" (in the wideclient.ini file on the RW PC), and then program your buttons in FSUIPC ot use the KeySend controls, not the RW controls.

There's stuff about this in the FSUIPC Advanced User's Guide as well as in the WideFS documentation.

thank you pete I found the documetation...and tried it out

it works fine..it s a bit slow leaving the transmission button off..but otherwise fine...now my next step is to try to configure the same joystick button to make the simulator quite (sound on and off) while pressed while transmitting...I tried to do it with the instructions...but somethiing I am doing wrong I programmed the letter R to send the KEysend while pressing the no8 joystic button and programed the letter Q for fs sound off and souind on when released...

I simply cant get them to work under one button...I read the documentation but cant figure out the solution...so I left it with another button no1 or 0 dont remember with this function (sound off and on..)

Would appreciate any help

here is the part of my ini file

[buttons]

0=R1,9,K113,8

1=R1,1,C65588,0

2=P1,8,K82,8

3=P1,8,C66063,8

4=U1,8,K82,8

5=U1,8,C66062,8

[Keys]

0=82,8,1006,1,1006,2

1=81,8,66063,1,66062,2

thanks for any help./.

That's not very realistic, though -- real aircraft don;t have such a facilitiy. Perhaps you have the aircraft sounds up too high, or is this in a light aircraft -- they are much noisier in the cockpit than, say, airliners? Are you using a headset for RW?

Sorry, I don't understand this at all. If you are using joystick buttons, where do keystrokes like "R" come in? You can assign the KeySend and its number directly in the Buttons page.

All you need to do is program the KeySends on one button, then the sound control on another, make sure they both work okay, the close FS and edit the FSUIPC.INI to make both buttons the same button.

[buttons]

0=R1,9,K113,8

1=R1,1,C65588,0

2=P1,8,K82,8

3=P1,8,C66063,8

4=U1,8,K82,8

5=U1,8,C66062,8

[Keys]

0=82,8,1006,1,1006,2

1=81,8,66063,1,66062,2

This seems a bit of a mess. Delete it all and start again, using only Buttons. There's no need for ANY keystrokes at all (no wonder you are getting delays, you are getting things going round many loops!).

Program KeySend 1 and 2 on one button, program the FS control "Sound Off" and "Sound On" on another button. Then, with FS closed, edit the INI and make both button numbers the same (i.e. the 2nd number after the P and the U).

Regards,

Pete
