Recommended Posts

Hi,

I got trouble trying to record mouse macros

When i click on the panel, the green box do not appears and i can't record the macro.

The event is well reccorded as this is shown inside the log:

I got trouble trying to record mouse macros

That's a pretty sure indication that the way the gauge is written doesn't allow mouse macros to operate.

Exactly the case - the mouse click calls an FS base module, not a Gauge, and that module hasn't been written using the FS C/C++ SDK rules for constructing gauges. The mouse macro relies on a specific data structure which only exists when that system is followed.

Hi, this is an microsoft bases aircraft, so I assumed it was supposed to be working.

I'll try with PMDG, i remember the macro wasn't working on the 747, but at least, I could record them. I also so a video with the MD11 so i'll try with him

No, Microsoft hardly ever used the standard gauge building kit they made for add-on aircraft folks to use. The mouse macros are virtualy ineffective on all the defalut aircraft.

Actually mouse macros have been used pretty effectively with most parts of the PMDG 747X, and the FS9 PMDG aircraft. See the User Contributions subforum.

Ok, tried with the md11, same thing happened, should work, so, I have a problem

Should it? How do you know?

What version of FS is this? What version of FSUIPC? You don't give much information.

There's a very good User Contribution for the PMDG MD11X. Is that the one you mean?

If you are talking about FSX, you know you need at least SP1 applied for mouse macros to be usable?

I know it works with MD11 cos there a lot of videos demonstrating it. Maybe it don'Mt work for the whole thing but at least you can define macros.

I'm using latest version of FSX and latest version of FSUIPC :)

Right ...

Sorry, you've lost me. What does that mean in this context?

I'm using latest version of FSX and latest version of FSUIPC

And what do YOU think is the "latest version of FSUIPC"? Folks have come here and said exactly that and been found later to have been using 12-18 months old versions! I ALWAYS need you to quote actual version numbers! That's the only thing which makes sense!

Since you know the mouse macros work, and folks have already posted them for the MD11, what is your question now?

My FSUIPC version is 4.60 date march 2010 downloaded on a website last updated January 26, 2011 13:30 W. Europe Standard Time called Schiratti.com wich I hope is up to date. Alsmost 12 months old but up to date I assume.

Ok the question is simple: what could make the macro editor not reccording even with the simpliest Microsoft Cessna.

On this video:

at 0:42 you have what I called the "green box". This never show up on my system.

Since I made a lot of macros using Fs9 and some using FsX in the past, and since the log is updated, I can consider this situation as abnormal and not caused because I am totally stupid. And that's why I'm trying to get some help on what seems to me the best place to do it.

Thanks.

It's the oldest supported version. There are always interim updates in the Download Links subforum.

The mouse macro facilities only work on gauges which are written using the Microsoft C/C++ gauges SDK. Unfortunately hardly any of the default Microsoft gauges are written that way.

If a mouse macro cannot be made the display does not appear. It is the same as if you clicked on a position on the screen not even on a switch. The traps installed in the gauges cannot catch them when they don't go there.

Additionally, for FSX, the traps won't work on the original version of FSX. They need SP1 or SP2/Acceleration installed.

Regards

Pete
