mouse macro for sky decks 737 OH

Recommended Posts

Hi Peter i was wondering if it is possible to create mouse macro for the sky decks 737 panel , i'v tried out with fsuipc but didn't manage to do it. I contact the panel desiner and ask him - "Hi again , is there any way to use those variables in FSUIPC to create a macro file or use offsets to control it ?" and his answer was - "I've never explored that option before in assigning custom XML variables to a macro through FSUIPC. I've heard several times that using XML variables with FSUIPC doesn't work. Maybe things have changed in the last few years..." . Is it possible , or i have to search for another panel ?

Thanks in advance

XML Gauges aren't susceptible to the 2mouse macro" technique, as they don't actually have any code as such which can be hooked -- the macro facility relies on finding the tables in the code formed by using the original C/C++ gauges SDK.

If it is FSUIPC4 and FSX you are talking about, you might be able to access the "L:vars" in the XML gauges. Lvars are Local gauge variables. Depending on how they are used internally in the gauge you might be able to read them and even write them. Details are provided in the FSUIPC4 Advanced User's Guide. Check the contents list, they are mentioned there.

Pete

I don't know. it depends how their gauges are programmed. I cannot tell in advance, it's a matter of trying.
