Multiple actions of a switch.


Recommended Posts

Hi Pete,

Thanks for your hep. I have read the user guide and advanced user guide and to be honest I couldn't understand some of it (most of it!). What I am trying to do is use a 737 TQ for a 747 and need to know how to set one micro switch up to start eng 1 & 2 fuel flow, and the second switch to start eng 3 & 4 fuel flow. Additionally I'd like the reversers to do the same - reverser 1 assigned to engine 1 & 2 and reverser 2 assigned to engine 3 & 4. Can you tell me how I go about this in FSUIPC. I'm OK with the throttle axis.

Many Thanks

Rob

Assign 1 to engine 1 and the other to engine 3 then edit the INI file to add similar assignments for the other engines. You cannot program multiple actions on one button press in the Options screen only, you have to edit the INI. Alternatively, if your microswitch sends a "press" and a "release" and not just a press, like a button, you could program one engine on the press and the other on the release -- that certainly can be done in the options screen.

Additionally I'd like the reversers to do the same - reverser 1 assigned to engine 1 & 2 and reverser 2 assigned to engine 3 & 4. Can you tell me how I go about this in FSUIPC. I'm OK with the throttle axis.

The 4 reversers tab in the joystick calibration has options for doing exactly that. The check boxes to enable such mapping are clearly labelled.

Regards

Pete
