FSUIPC mouse macros on a new aircraft model


Recommended Posts

Hi,

I have a fully registered copy of FSUIPC and previously was using it on my Wilco Airbus A319 home cockpit, I was using the excellent mouse trapping techniques (Macros) to capture controls and then able to assign them to push buttons and rotary switches etc. that I had setup on various Leo Bodnar BU0836X USB cards and it worked wonders :)

My problem is that now I am planning on building a fighter cockpit (the A319 is slightly too big for my spare room lol!) so I have dismantled the A319 and now plan on building a F22 Raptor (using the IRIS F22 Raptor) but I have noticed that the FSUIPC mouse macro's fail to recognise any of the VC controls :( - I know that this feature only works if the model developer used a particular method of programming and its not guaranteed to work anyway (I've read the FSUIPC manual lol) but I know that I may be wasting your time asking you to reply but I'm just hoping that maybe someone has a work-around? unsure.gif. It looks as if the panels use XML configuration (it would appear).

I've just seen another thread on the forums about LINDA so I'm hoping that maybe that can achieve such a task :)

I'd be so grateful for any help or advice.. Failing that I guess I'll just have to find a quality aircraft model (realisitc) and that works with the FSUIPC macro's (Pete you are a genius... I love the mouse macros feature! :))

Regards,

Bobby Allen

Possibly, then, it uses local panel variables ("L:Vars") which can be written to via macros and read and written by Lua plug-ins. there are plenty of examples of using these in the User Contributions subforum.

Maybe. I think it is capable of using mouse macros and L:Vars as needed. Check with the authors on that. There's a pinned thread on LINDA at the top of this Forum.

Regards

Pete
