iFLY engine start levers and FSUIPC


Recommended Posts

Hi,

Is is possible to send an IOCARDS command 510 to address 1000 in FSUIPC?

Via SIOC it is easy, just "&commands = 510". I would like to operate the engine start levers.

I have tried to find what FS control in FSUIPC that operates the engine start levers, and tried some in the button and switches, but did not got the right one. CTRL+SHIFT+F1 / F4 does not work either. (However 510/511 or 512/513 do work in SIOC).

BR,

Magnus

You need to ask about this at the iFly support forum, there is a tool there called iFlytoFSUIPC.exe that has all sorts of things like this covered and it makes setting up hardware with the iFly737 very simple. A great deal of the iFly systems do not use normal FS controls so knowing the codes that FSUIPC normally uses is of no use to you.

For example;

510 KEY_COMMAND_ENGAPU_ENG_1_START_LEVER_IDLE

The rest of the instructions and documentation on how to set it up are in the support forum which you must register at as no further support is given outside the official forum due to piracy.

This is the correct forum to talk about FSUIPC but as I said what you want to do isn't possible directly through the normal FS Controls that FSUIPC uses, instead you need to use the application that I spoke of previously as an intermediary/translator which links FSUIPC and the iFly SDK together.

Hi,

I read a bit about this now, including the iFLY to FSUIPC program. But the thing is I want to have a joystick button (not IOCARDS/SIOC button) assigned to it. So how do I write the "510" in the "sw+button" folder in FSUIPC? Byte/Word/Dword? Is 510 the offset or the parameter?

BR,

Magnus

Support is provided in the iFly forum only in regards to iFlytoFSUIPC.exe, sorry. The developer who wrote the interpreter posts and reads the forum regularly and there are plenty of other users doing the exact same things as yourself, you will find the answer there, there is even a tutorial.
