Altimeter barometric pressure


Recommended Posts

I have just about finished my cockpit and have most instruments HDG - VOR 1 & VOR 2 - ALT - SPD - VSI etc programmed to rotary switches in FSUIPC4. I would like to program in the Barometric adjustment to a rotary switch, which you can do with the mouse or press b to reset it. However I cannot find an option in Buttons & Keys to do it. Is the option there and I am missing it, or is it not possible to do at present?

Any help would be appreciated -- thanks

The controls for that were named by Microsoft as "Kohlsman inc" and "Kohlsman dec", after the German maker of the first altimeters to feature that "Kollsman Window" (note my spelling which is correct, unlike Microsoft's).

To determine the name of any regular FS control simply enable event logging in FSUIPC and use the switch or knob in the usual way. Then look in the FSUIPC log to see what it is called.
