Macro prob


Recommended Posts

Hi Pete,

I try to assign joystick buttons to the PMDG 747X fuel cuttoff leavers on the throttle window via the macro abillity.I followed the user guide to the letter I think but I get no result just one leaver is working. i think it has to do with the click area {rectangle?}.

Here is the macro file

[Macros]

Module="PMDG_747400_Center.DLL"

1=Fuel cutt eng 1=R1

2=Fuel cutt eng 2=R1

3=Fuel cutt eng 3=R1

4=Fuel cutt eng 4=R1

So when I click a lever it switches all 4 for that matter but when I press TAB to test only the first one most left one switches.

Hope this can be sorted out?Help much appreciated.

Regards...Marc

I'm afraid this must be one part of PMDG cockpits which isn't amenable to the methods i use. If you cannot select and test using TAB that's it, it cannot be done this way. I cannot deal with screen coordinates in this method -- for that you'd have to use Luciano Napolitano's Key2Mouse and have the quadrant/pedestal on display.

Surely there are regular FS controls (Mixture1/2/3/4 Lean and Rich are the normal ones) or assignable keyboard shortcuts in the PMDG software to handle these?

Regards

Pete
