FSUIPC and RXPGNS530W


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Can sombody help or steer me in the right direction please. I am running FSX on Win7 with a GPS from Reality XP (GNS530W). I have assigned KB inputs in that GPS thru the specific ini file of that software and by applying the mapped Keys, does change the controls on the GPS as if done by way of the mouse pointer. FSUIPC has button commands for the default GPS but not the Reality XP GPS.

My question is, how do I map the KB strokes in the RXPGNS.ini file that do change the controls on the GPS, into FSUIPC to do the same by assigning commands to harware buttons.

That is, if I have a line in the RXPGNS.ini file like Shift+N to turn the GPS on/off, how do I transfer that particular keystroke sequence into FSUIPC with the same result.

Have read both users pdf files of FSUIPC, which were somewhat helpful but still no result yet.

Any other hardware (buttons/switches) all work fine thru FSUIPC.

The bottom line is that I like to work controls on the GPS thru Hardware buttons and not KB or Mouse.

Appreciate some help or hints thanks

Cheers

Richard

Just assign your buttons to the keystrokes on the left hand side of the Buttons tab in FSUIPC options. You should find it completely intuitive, but the documentation is there to help too.

Thanks a lot Pete, you made my day. After all the studying I did with the comprehensive manuals (learned a lot by the way), It was your reply that pointed me to the right way. I completely overlooked the little tickbox on the leftside of the buttons tab to assign.buttons to keystrokes. Have now allocated all the keystrokes compiled in the GPS ini file into button actions thru FSUIPC.

So again many thanks for that little push I needed.

Cheers and have a good one

Richard
