QualityWings 757


Recommended Posts

As the developer does not provide the information, I've used FSUIPC's logging facility to capture events which occur when I click on areas of the 2D panel I want to assign to my yoke. That was successful for everything except the EPR button on the 2D panel. Here is the log:

I assigned INCREASE_THROTTLE to a button, engaged the autothrottle (successfuly assigned to a button), advanced the throttles to a steady 1.1 EPR and pressed the button assigned to EPR. Nothing happened.

Also used log lvars.lua, resulting in the following log when pressing the 2D panel EPR click spot:

********* LUA: "log lvars" Log [from FSUIPC version 3.952] *********

385297 System time = 18/12/2009 13:55:37, FS2004 time = 13:50:37 (20:50Z)

385297 LUA: beginning "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Games\Flight Simulator 9\MODULES\log lvars.lua"

385297 *** LUA Error: ...osoft Games\Flight Simulator 9\MODULES\log lvars.lua:21: attempt to call field 'getLvarName' (a nil value)

385297 LUA: ended "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Games\Flight Simulator 9\MODULES\log lvars.lua"

********* LUA execution terminated: Log Closed *********

Given the above information, is there something else I might do to assign QualityWings 757 EPR to a button?

Thanks,

As the developer does not provide the information, I've used FSUIPC's logging facility to capture events which occur when I click on areas of the 2D panel I want to assign to my yoke. That was successful for everything except the EPR button on the 2D panel.

There's no equivalent built into FS, that's why. what is the "EPR button" supposed to do? Is that the equivalent of setting "N1" on the 737 MCP?

Also used log lvars.lua, resulting in the following log when pressing the 2D panel EPR click spot:

385297 *** LUA Error: ...osoft Games\Flight Simulator 9\MODULES\log lvars.lua:21: attempt to call field 'getLvarName' (a nil value)

The Lvar access facilities only work with FSX and FSUIPC4. They aren't included in the FSUIPC3 version, though I'll be looking into it to see if I can implement them there too.

Have you tried the mouse macro facility to see if it is amenable to that? If the relevant gauge was written using the C/C++ gauge SDK it might be.

Will need to check this. I do know that it is not the equivalent of setting "TOGA".

No wonder the error message :oops: !

Will also have a look at this.

I've looked into it, and it looked easy enough.

Download FSUIPC version 3.954 via the link in the Updates announcement, and see if the LVar access facilities can help.

Last post this subject for those who might be interested:

QW staff stated:

Quote: Its not a FS9 control.

That variable is just true/false an indicator that tells the gauge that thrust mode is either on/off.

So when the button is pressed again the reverse happens.

Its a registered variable in FS so they could set from another gauge, so what you suggest would appear possible. Unquote.

I've used the Lvar access facilities Pete so generously added to FSUIPC3, attempted mouse macro creation and wrote a plug in based on log lvars.lua output. I succeeded in causing the EPR button "on light" to switch on, but was never able to identify how to "set from another gauge". However, Key2mouse does the job perfectly.

QualityWings is deep into a service pack development/testing so I plan to ask them again in a month or so.

Pete, thanks for your outstanding support!!
