A2A B377 commands (upd.16thdez09)

Recommended Posts

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

MACRO

Explanation:

1) number 1 = the AP turn handle reset.

Insert in the paramter field the number "50" to set the Ap turn handle back to the middle

2) the carbheat switch or turbooverride switch commands can be used with combined key or button actions, Read FSUIPC manual how to edit the FSUIPC.ini for it

So you can switch 4 carbheats with one button or key

3) IntercoolerFlap needs parameter 100 for increase and 1 for decrease.

Same with Window defroster

4) TurboCalibration needs INC parameter 50 and DEC -50

5) map_zoom doesn't work very well; I'm too lazy to have a look into it ;-)

16th dezember: some new macro functions added:

one important is the cowl flaps entry.

You have to combine inside the FSUIPC.ini some functions to get the cowl flaps to work:

example for button 4 of joystick F:

81=RF,4,CM8:48,2

82=RF,4,CM8:52,1

83=UF,4,CM8:48,1

line 81: L:CowlFlap1Switch=SET with parameter 2 and line 82: L:CF1SMouse=SET with parameter 1 must be used to get the cowl flaps work. line 83 is needed at the button release to switch the cowl flap switch back to neutral position.

B377 fuel selector LUA code

-- All Fuel Selectors OFF
if ipcPARAM == 1 then   


	ipc.writeLvar("L:FuelSelE1Knob", 0)
	ipc.writeLvar("L:FuelSelE2Knob", 0)
	ipc.writeLvar("L:FuelSelE3Knob", 0)
	ipc.writeLvar("L:FuelSelE4Knob", 0)


-- All Fuel Selectors 25

elseif ipcPARAM == 2 then


	ipc.writeLvar("L:FuelSelE1Knob", 25)
	ipc.writeLvar("L:FuelSelE2Knob", 25)
	ipc.writeLvar("L:FuelSelE3Knob", 25)
	ipc.writeLvar("L:FuelSelE4Knob", 25)


-- All Fuel Selectors 50

elseif ipcPARAM == 3 then


	ipc.writeLvar("L:FuelSelE1Knob", 50)
	ipc.writeLvar("L:FuelSelE2Knob", 50)
	ipc.writeLvar("L:FuelSelE3Knob", 50)
	ipc.writeLvar("L:FuelSelE4Knob", 50)


-- All Fuel Selectors 75

elseif ipcPARAM == 4 then


	ipc.writeLvar("L:FuelSelE1Knob", 75)
	ipc.writeLvar("L:FuelSelE2Knob", 75)
	ipc.writeLvar("L:FuelSelE3Knob", 75)
	ipc.writeLvar("L:FuelSelE4Knob", 75)

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!

- updated 16th dezember 2009

macros added, lua code for fuel selector
