Altimeter setting


Recommended Posts

Hi

This is probably a stupid question but I did a search and didn't find any answer.

I had a GoFlight rotary switch (in GF RP48) that could easily increase or decrease the altimeter setting because it was programmable in the GoFlight program.

Now, I have a separate rotary switch (in GF-EFIS) which I want to program via "keys and buttons" in FSUIPC, but I don't find the command for increasing or decreasing the altimeter, nor in the FS list neither in Project Magenta list (I have PM MCP+EFIS).

Did I miss something?

Thanks in advance

Rob

Yes. Microsoft have always called this "Kohlsman inc" and "Kohlsman dec" -- after the German company which invented the little pressure window in early-days altimeters. In fact they spelled it incorrectly to, as the company was named "Kollsman".

There's an easy way to find out the FS names for any controls. Simply enable Event logging (axis or non-axis) in FSUIPC's logging page, then operate the control using the regular FS keypress or mouse clicks. Look in the FSUIPC log and you will see the control named.

FSUIPC gets all the internal FS names from a table in Controls.DLL, part of FS itself.

Regards

Pete
