Aerosoft Catalina commands (upd 19thDez09)

Recommended Posts

I have made some little LUA and MACRO files for different aircrafts the last weeks and d'like to share them here.

LUA commands

To get acces to the single commands you have to do the following:

1) copy the code below

2) insert it into an empty editor or wordpad file and save it as e.g. J41.LUA

3) open FSUIPC menu and choose LUA J41 from the drop down

4) insert different parameter numbers depending on the action you want (green field)

parameter numbers for the CAT:

-- 1 = floats down

-- 2 = floats up

upd 19th Dez 09

I have made a second file of commands, because I have made a new hardware switch panel and needed some new commands (e.g. On/Off instead of toggle)

also there are some new functions: APU and APU Generator toggle

Because the parameter numbers have changed I insert here a second code. If you want these new codes you have to copy them out or copy the hole file and change parameters

end

All files work at my system with latest FSUIPC version.

no guarantee that they will work for you (but they should, I'm sure - tested only at FSX Acceleration)

Do any codings at your own risk and just do things if you know what you do...

Be patient that I could not support any question. Please inform yourself how to handle MACROS and LUA files and the power of FSUIPC.

Have fun!
