Combination with shf key not working

Recommended Posts

Hello Pete, I have the latest software: ********* FSUIPC4, Version 4.859q by Pete Dowson *********, I use FSX with VRS Tacpack. I use one lua file but only to have the microstick of the ch throttle functional as I do not know how to do without (subject already debated in previous request, it is not the topic here). Assigning ctr+u (as an example is working). But each combination involving shift (I tried with left shift or right shift) is not working as I would like it. In short term it works as a 'pulse' key instead of working as a 'holding "shift" key while pressing another key then releasing the key and then releasing the shift. Therefore what I can have using the keyboard is not what I have using the FSUIPC4 interface. In other short words Shift key is ignored. I even tried to replace in ini the ' U' by "P" without success. Any clue? To gain time I copy an paste the settings (sorry but the "enter" function was not working on this page while I checked with office that it was).

Hello Pete, I have the latest software: ********* FSUIPC4, Version 4.859q by Pete Dowson *********

Actually the latest is 4.859s, but it is of no consequence. I shall be making a new full release, 4.86, soon.

But each combination involving shift (I tried with left shift or right shift) is not working as I would like it. In short term it works as a 'pulse' key instead of working as a 'holding "shift" key while pressing another key then releasing the key and then releasing the shift.

Are you talking about assigning key presses on the keyboard to controls, or assigning buttons to keypresses?

Mind you, either way, it works fine here. I have many many examples of both in use on my own cockpit. Shift is treated no differently to Ctrl, Alt, or even odd ones like Tab, Windows and menu keys.

Looking at your INI file, I see these Button assignments with shifts of one sort or another set:

4=RC,3,K46,9 = shift+delete

5=PC,14,K49,11 = Ctrl+Shift+1

6=PC,12,K51,11 = Ctrl+Shift+3

7=PC,15,K50,11 = Ctrl+Shift+2

8=PC,13,K52,11 = Ctrl+Shift+4

9=PC,4,K38,10 = Ctrl+Up

10=PC,6,K40,10 = Ctrl+Dn

11=PC,7,K37,10 = Ctrl+Left

12=PC,5,K39,10 = Ctrl+Rght

13=RB,38,K38,9 = Shift+Up

14=RB,36,K37,9 = Shift+Left

15=RB,32,K39,9 = Shift+Rght

16=RB,34,K40,9 = Shift+Dn

17=PB,3,K82,9 = Shift+R

18=PB,2,K82,10 = Ctrl+R

19=PB,1,K85,10 = Ctrl+U

20=PB,7,K80,10 = Ctrl+P

So, which of these doesn't work? (If this is what you mean).

Enable Button and Key logging and let me see the results of pressing whichever it is that doesn't appear to work.

Regards

Pete

I have fsuipc 4.85, FSX and a saitek 52 joystick

I have also notice a problem with the shift + delete combination.

Below is my button programming, entry numbers 42 (a button type switch) and 55 ( a paddle type switch) have the shift/delete combo, i.e. K46, 9. However, when I use either only a delete command is sent/received.

I have fsuipc 4.85

I cannot support versions earlier than 4.853. The latest is 4.859s, from the Download Links subforum.

Below is my button programming, entry numbers 42 (a button type switch) and 55 ( a paddle type switch) have the shift/delete combo, i.e. K46, 9. However, when I use either only a delete command is sent/received.

How do you tell? Why not use the button/keyl ogging as requested earlier in this thread -- or did you not read the thread before posting?

I can't help you without information. Sorry.

Pete

I have never done a log before, I hope this is what you need. Also updated to 4.859s

Hmm. Interesting. Here is a place where you pressed a button which invoked Shift+something

The blue parts are where FSUIPC is sending the eyacyions. You will see that they are precisely what was called for.

The red parts are just FSUIPC logging the arrival of the Keyboard events into FS. Now you see that somehow additional KEYUP events are occurring for the Shift key. It is this which is ruining the outcome!

A different example, with Ctrl+something looks different (correct):

415821 Button changed: bRef=0, Joy=0, Btn=16, Pressed

415821 [buttons.Flight Test Aircraft E1] 40=P0,16,K39,10

415868 .. Key not programmed -- passed on to FS

415868 KEYDOWN: VK=39, Waiting=0, Repeat=N, Shifts=2

415868 .. Key not programmed -- passed on to FS

415962 SendKeyToFS(00020027=[ctl+Right], KEYUP) ctr=0

415962 Button changed: bRef=0, Joy=0, Btn=16, Released

415977 Sending WM_KEYUP, Key=39 (Scan code 77), Ctr=2

415993 Sending WM_KEYUP, Key=17 (Control) (Scan code 29), Ctr=1

416024 KEYUP: VK=39, Waiting=0

416024 KEYUP: VK=17, Waiting=0

I don't understand how this is occurring, I've not seen such before. I'll see if I can reproduce it here, but please, also, tell me what other things you have running inside FS, what other add-ons.

Regards

Pete

No, I cannot reproduce this behaviour. I'm sure it must be something else on your system which is cancelling the Shift with a Shift Keyup message, but I've no idea what that could be nor why it would do it.

Since there are two of you reporting this (though so far no confirming log has been supplied by the original poster), I hope that if you both list your addons we might find something in common between them which could help to explain it.

Okay. Whilst i cannot reproduce it, I think I can stop it happening by deliberately "swallowing" the excess Shift KEYUP messages. I'd still like to know where those come from (it definitely is not FSUIPC), so please do provide the extra info I asked for. but meanwhile please try this test version of FSUIPC4 and let me know:

FSUIPC4859t_Test2.zip

Thanks. I'd like to see the log 9with the same options as above) whether it works or not.

I have VRS tacpac, AIcarrier2, USS Nimitz & USS Eisenhower Version 2.0 by Javier Fernandez and FSrecorder. I also have TrackIR, I am also using a Lua file called Lua.panning that you suggested in a recent forum

The OP also said "I use FSX with VRS Tacpack", so that's a distinct posibility. What is it, an aircraft? If so, does it have a DLL or EXE running?

Let me know what happens with the test version of FSUIPC please.

vrs tacpack is an F18 aircraft (http://www.vrsimulations.com/tacpack.htm), I believe it is dll running.

I've tested the test version and it did not help. Furthermore, prior to updating to fsuipc 4859, I was able to use the keyboard shift + delete to get the specific command, now it does not, see key log below.

Also, I've tested a shift combo with other keys and they work. the problem seems only to occur with delete. also, I notice the FSX, I believe, does not use the delete key for any commands. the use of the delete key is unique to the VRS aircraft. I have gone to vrs support forums and it appears that others have had a problem with shift + delete not necessarily with fsuipc. I am going to check on vrs forum to check further.

vrs tacpack is an F18 aircraft (http://www.vrsimulat...com/tacpack.htm), I believe it is dll running.

Could you test without that DLL please?

I've tested the test version and it did not help. Furthermore, prior to updating to fsuipc 4859, I was able to use the keyboard shift + delete to get the specific command, now it does not, see key log below.

Sorry, you are confusing things now. You are saying it all worked before i changed it? So why did I bother? Please explain.

Also, I've tested a shift combo with other keys and they work. the problem seems only to occur with delete. also, I notice the FSX, I believe, does not use the delete key for any commands. the use of the delete key is unique to the VRS aircraft. I have gone to vrs support forums and it appears that others have had a problem with shift + delete not necessarily with fsuipc. I am going to check on vrs forum to check further.

Okay. That's useful information. Thanks.

The log shows the new mod in operation:

The CTRL+RGHT worked okay, as before:

That should NOT have been ignored ... it was one sent by FSUIPC. Strange, ctrl+Shift+1 works fine here. I'll investigate this now.

Here's the Shift+Delete showing the CORRECT spurious KEYUP being ignored:

63352 [buttons.Flight Test Aircraft E1] 55=P0,0,K46,9

63352 SendKeyToFS(0004002E=[shft+Del], KEYDOWN) ctr=0

63477 Sending WM_KEYUP, Key=16 (Shift) (Scan code 42), Ctr=1

63508 KEYUP: VK=46, Waiting=0

So that should have worked okay. Did it not?

Oddly though it was folowed by a very short press of the Shift key before the process ended. I'm wondering if that's due to the outstanding KEYUP from the red marked ignoring action above.

63508 KEYDOWN: VK=16, Waiting=0, Repeat=N, Shifts=1

63508 .. Key not programmed -- passed on to FS

63508 KEYUP: VK=16, Waiting=0, Spurious so ignored!

and this KEYUP was also ignored.

The Shift key is now stuck down, so the remaining non-shifted keys will not give the desired results. I assume this resulted in you holding it down, here, in order to clear it?

But yet again it was ignored.

Somehow the flag telling the routine to ignore the Shift KEYUP is stuck "on". i'll check.

Let me know how you get on with VRS support.

Okay. My error. There was one other place where a KEYUP could be sent which also needed the flag cleared. Sorry about that. Try

FSUIPC4859t_Test3.zip

I continue from my first request. 1) By using a lua file that contains -- "Stick 3615 Nose Wheel Steering Mode Toggle (SHIFT+DEL)" then

"-- Undesignate/Nose Wheel Steering Mode Button

if ipcPARAM == 3615 then

ipc.keypress (110,1)

end

" that works by adding it on the left part of the FSUIPC Windows it doesn't work (shift function is ignored). 2) I guess the shift + R does not work either (I have to put myself in a situation where I can test it with FA-18 VRS with Tacpack. 3) the joysticks buttons I'm referring to more precisely (for the function shift + arrows) are 32,34,36 and 38. I even tried (by reading some part of the Advanced manual to change them to: 35=HB,38,K38,8

36=HB,38,K16,8

37=HB,34,K40,8

38=HB,34,K16,8

39=HB,36,K37,8

40=HB,36,K16,8

41=HB,32,K39,8

42=HB,32,K16,8" without success as well.

I continue from my first request.

Sorry, you have now lost me completely. What "request"? What is all this about, and how does it relate to all the preceding interactions? Are you testing with 4.859t_Test3? Why have you not even supplied the log file requested in my original reply to you. But not with anything earlier than the Test3 version as mentioned.

You seem to be ignoring what has occurred and where the problem appears to lie -- with the VRS it seems. I am merely trying to find a work around.

Pete,

You seem to be ignoring what has occurred and where the problem appears to lie -- with the VRS it seems. I am merely trying to find a work around.

This is Chris Tracy, the primary developer of the VRS TacPack. (A module that adds various weapon/sensor functionality to FSX. It runs globally as a DLL) If indeed you find that something the TacPack is doing is the source of this issue, I'm most interested to fix it on our end rather than forcing you to work around it. Though I confess I too am confused by what's been reported here so far.

Hi Chris

Happy New Year to you. Hope you are well!

Of course it may not actualy be related to the VRS, it may just be a coincidence that the two posting here are both running it. It is also not clear to me at present what problem the original poster is suffering from. -- the second one, the only one to provide helpful evidence so far, seems to now believe that it is something to do with sending Shift+Delete only. The odd and apparently spurious WM_KEYUP occuring for the shift is the problem.

I believe the code I put into the test test version of FSUIPC4 ("4859t_Test3") should do the trick, but I've not received confirmation yet, which is why 4.859t is not yest released except here.

I'm afraid I can't really help narrow down the cause since I have no means of re-creating the symptoms here.

Best Regards

Pete

Happy New Year to you. Hope you are well!

Thanks, Pete. Hope you are as well.

For what it's worth, I've just tested here locally with the VRS Superbug (our FA-18E) and TacPack without issue on both 4.859m and 4.859t_Test3. Whatever it is, it's not something VRS code is unavoidably causing.

To the users reporting the issue:

In addition to both running the TacPack, you're both running the user-contributed LUA "SuperScript" as well, aren't you? I'm wondering if perhaps that's where the spurious shift release is coming from. (I'm not running it here, nor is it something VRS supports, and FSUIPC's LUA capabilities are not something I have any experience or knowledge of. I've asked that script's author to review this thread)

Is it possible you both have the same stick and/or profiling software that might be causing it?

Like Pete, I'm quite curious to see an FSUIPC log of button/key events from one (or both) of you with the TacPack disabled. (You can disable the TacPack easily via the TPM)

Here are the relevant sections of my log from the test with the Superbug/TacPack on FSUIPC 4.859t_Test3

This is my log with your t3, with the new lua 1.04. However during the test I kept one button for "FSUIPC direct input" for shift + del besides the ones for shift + the 4 arrows. Meaning with one button I use for shift + del the lua programmation and with another one I use the fsuipc direct programmation.

Pete,

ok, I've tested version 3, but it did not help. however, someone mentioned that there is another delete key associated with the num pad (which I don't have) it is the num. key which has a key value of 110. I have program a button number 26 as: 42=P0,26,K110,9 and button 0 as: 55=P0,0,K46,9 Button 26 works properly sending the "shift+delete" command, but button 0 still send just a "delete" command. Key log is below, but as far as I can tell the same spurious KEYUP: VK=16 Waiting=0 occurs in both situation. I don't have a clue why shift + Num. send shift + delete but shift + delete send just delete. I still believe it has something to do with the fact that FSX doesn't use the delete key although it does use the shift + Num Pad Delete (.) as a view command: Look (reset to forward view). And I might also wonder why shift + Num. doesn't send the Look command rather than the VRS TacPac Undesignate command?

In any case, I appreciate all your help in this matter.

Should I go back to using the original version of FSUIPC 4.859?

thanks

George

This is my log with your t3, with the new lua 1.04. However during the test I kept one button for "FSUIPC direct input" for shift + del besides the ones for shift + the 4 arrows. Meaning with one button I use for shift + del the lua programmation and with another one I use the fsuipc direct programmation

Sorry, but you've still lost me with this. I don't understand any of what you say. All I really need to know is what IS the problem?

In the log you provide I've no idea wehat is supposed to be happening and what is wrong because i don't see any Buttons assigned to send ketystrokes. If you are sending them from a Lua plug-in I need to see what you are actually doing there at each stage in your log.

The sequences which include Shift seem to be fine. For instance, here you have Shift pressed whilst 'Z' is pressed and released twice giving two Shift+Z's.

988485 KEYDOWN: VK=16, Waiting=0, Repeat=N, Shifts=1

988485 .. Key not programmed -- passed on to FS

988735 KEYDOWN: VK=90, Waiting=0, Repeat=N, Shifts=1

988735 .. Key not programmed -- passed on to FS

988829 KEYUP: VK=90, Waiting=0

988922 KEYDOWN: VK=90, Waiting=0, Repeat=N, Shifts=1

988922 .. Key not programmed -- passed on to FS

989079 KEYUP: VK=90, Waiting=0

989079 KEYUP: VK=16, Waiting=0

Here's a case of an actual button pressed, programmed to send Ctrl+Shift+3:

1034938 Button changed: bRef=0, Joy=3 ©, Btn=12, Pressed

1034938 [buttons] 6=PC,12,K51,11

1034938 SendKeyToFS(00060033=[ctl+shft+3], KEYDOWN) ctr=0

1034938 Sending WM_KEYDOWN, Key=16 (Shift) (Scan code 42), Ctr=3

1034938 Sending WM_KEYDOWN, Key=17 (Control) (Scan code 29), Ctr=3

1034954 Sending WM_KEYDOWN, Key=51 (Scan code 4), Ctr=1

1034985 KEYDOWN: VK=16, Waiting=0, Repeat=N, Shifts=1

1034985 .. Key not programmed -- passed on to FS

1034985 KEYDOWN: VK=17, Waiting=0, Repeat=N, Shifts=3

1034985 .. Key not programmed -- passed on to FS

1034985 KEYDOWN: VK=51, Waiting=0, Repeat=N, Shifts=3

1034985 .. Key not programmed -- passed on to FS

1035047 SendKeyToFS(00060033=[ctl+shft+3], KEYUP) ctr=0

1035047 Sending WM_KEYUP, Key=51 (Scan code 4), Ctr=3

1035063 Sending WM_KEYUP, Key=17 (Control) (Scan code 29), Ctr=2

1035063 Sending WM_KEYUP, Key=16 (Shift) (Scan code 42), Ctr=2

1035094 KEYUP: VK=51, Waiting=0

1035094 KEYUP: VK=17, Waiting=0

1035094 KEYUP: VK=16, Waiting=0

1035141 Button changed: bRef=0, Joy=3 ©, Btn=12, Released

and that all went perfectly too.

Everything looks as if it worked exactly correctly, so I am at a loss to know what your problem really is. Can you explain at all?

Regards

Pete

I have redone a log but it is still 3000 lines.

Tripod at VRS forum found what the issue was: it seems that "Num Lock" on is interfering with FSUIPC4.

I have effectively tested (but with the throttle buttons programmed with the lua file) that in the same flight if I unselect Num Lock then the programmed keys corresponding to "shift" + "Arrow up" or "Arrow down" are working as they should do (i.e. as I can observe by pressing myself these keys on the keyboard). I'm talking about the arrows outside of the Numpad (althought what Tripod observed was the arrows in the Numpad).

It would be great if you can fix that in the next version of FSUIPC4.

But you only needed to extract the parts from where you initiated the action which goes wrong, and where it finished.

And I am still completely unclear on what your problem is, because you never really explained it. I thought the problem was the same as the second poster, "georgefitz", but if so I was only waiting for your confirmation that the work-around I included in 4.859t_Test3 worked for you too.

Tripod at VRS forum found what the issue was: it seems that "Num Lock" on is interfering with FSUIPC4.

In what way can a Key interfere with FSUIPC?

I don't know what you think is wrong. FSUIPC is just working with what Microsoft calls "Virtual Keycodes". The keycodes used are listed in the Advanced Users manual, and the list is a direct copy of MS's dcumentation for these. What other ways do you feel there are of sendng keypresses other than by the keycodes? Those are the parameters used in the WM_KEYDOWN and WM_KEYUP messages. There are no altrernatives.

You'll need to explain still, I'm afraid.

Hello Once again Pete, I will Jump in here as I think I now understand what the problem is that is being reported.

I am really not sure if it can at all be fixed by changes in FSUIPC but maybe there could be some type of work around put together.

First up , I am the Author of the "SuperScript_VRS" Lua script that has actually been posted in the user contributions forum and also known on the VRS Forums as Tripod, so thats how I am involved.

The Script that I wrote for the VRS Superbug was written as a one stop shop to control all the switches and knobs in the aircraft, it also includes the full Keyboard Shortcut reference that is supplied by VRS.

So in my script I have a list of "if ipcPARAM ==" statements that carry out the "ipc.keypress" commands that relate to their Key Command Shortcuts.

I have found that the particular Key Codes that I am calling with reference to the FSUIPC for Advanced Users guide are being affected by the status of the NUMLOCK key and looking at the table I would have thought the NUMLOCK key would not have any affect.

Here is a snippet from my script where the problem occurrs:


--Radar Elev Up
if ipcPARAM == 4003 then
ipc.keypress (38,1)
end

--Radar Elev Down
if ipcPARAM == 4004 then
ipc.keypress (40,1)
end

--Radar Azm Left
if ipcPARAM == 4005 then
ipc.keypress (37,1)
end

--Radar Azm Right
if ipcPARAM == 4006 then
ipc.keypress (39,1)
end
[/CODE]

So what is happening is that if the NUMLOCK is OFF the the SHIFT is recognised OK, but if the NUMLOCK is ON then the SHIFT is ignored completely.

It's almost as though the Key Codes being used are for the Keys on the NUMBER PAD and not for the individual ARROW keys next to the PAD as I, and others have thought.

I have confirmed with Georgefitz that he is not using my Lua script at all, but trying to use the key codes via Macro's and getting the same results.

Are there any other Key Codes available for the Individual Arrow keys or are we stuck with this problem, or is there a way that we can programattically make sure NUMLOCK is in an OFF state when sending the Key Code and then return it to it's previous state.

I would appreciate any help you can Provide, Thanks Pete.

Regards Glenn.

...

So what is happening is that if the NUMLOCK is OFF the the SHIFT is recognised OK, but if the NUMLOCK is ON then the SHIFT is ignored completely.

Actually, that is not the case. What is happening is exactly as depicted in the helpful logs provided by "georgefitz". His information along with your explanation about NUM LOCK has enabled me to reproduce it simply. If only someone had bothered to show me a log extract with the test version I made (4.859t_test3) then things would have been clearer sooner! I don't know why it is so difficult to get folks who have problems to run test versions and submit data.

Here's what I get for a button programmed to send "Shift+Up" when NUM LOCK is on:

 288337 [Buttons] 522=P175,0,K38,9
288337 SendKeyToFS(00040026=[shft+Up], KEYDOWN) ctr=0
288337 JoystickValues PCnum=0, dwCount=1, data[2]={000000af 00000001}
288337 Sending WM_KEYDOWN, Key=16 (Shift) (Scan code 42), Ctr=2
288352 Sending WM_KEYDOWN, Key=38 (Scan code 72), Ctr=1
288383 KEYDOWN: VK=16, Waiting=0, Repeat=N, Shifts=1
288383 .. Key not programmed -- passed on to FS
288399 KEYUP: VK=16, Waiting=0, Spurious so ignored!
288399 KEYDOWN: VK=38, Waiting=0, Repeat=N, Shifts=0
288399 .. Key not programmed -- passed on to FS
288399 *** EVENT: Cntrl= 65608 (0x00010048), Param= 0 (0x00000000) ELEV_DOWN
288461 SendKeyToFS(00040026=[shft+Up], KEYUP) ctr=0
288461 Sending WM_KEYUP, Key=38 (Scan code 72), Ctr=2
288477 Sending WM_KEYUP, Key=16 (Shift) (Scan code 42), Ctr=1
288493 KEYUP: VK=38, Waiting=0
[/CODE]

You'll see the unwanted KEYUP arriving before the second KEYDOWN (the one for the Up key. With the Test3 version I supplied, this is detected as Spurious (as logged) and therefore not passed on. However, one thing I failed to recognise, until now I could reproduce it and get my own log, is that the "Shifts" flag is then not set on the KEYDOWN for the "Up" keycode.

I don't know i it will help if I make my code add in the correct Shifts flag on this message. It looks like it depends on how the intended recipient detects the "Shift+Up" combination. FSUIPC does it by noting arrivals of KEYDOWNs for the shifts it supports (not only Shift, Ctrl, Alt, but also Tab, Windows and Menu). But if the recipient ignored the KEYDOWN for the Shift and only takes note of the flag setting, I can see why the above sequence is still a problem.

Are there any other Key Codes available for the Individual Arrow keys

The keycodes you are using are the ones produced by the separate cursor keys AND also the cursor keys on the NUMPAD when NumLock is off. I've no idea what in Windows is doing this strange thing with the Shift. I can see no purpose in it, no rhyme nor reason.

I would appreciate any help you can Provide.

I'll see if I can deal with the Shifts flag, and if so I'll post a Test4 version here. It'll need testing with a recipient add-on which needs these keys programmed. I don't think I have anything to test the results with here -- all my programs process the KEYDOWNs not the Shift flags.

If i post a test version I'll need feedback and log extracts pretty quickly, please. i am planning on releasing 486 Sunday or Monday and I am going away on holiday later in the week.

[ADDED LATER]

Ouch. Looking at my logging code I realise the "Shifts" flag logged by FSUIPC is my owe interpretation of the Key States in any case, not part of the message itself. Seems I may need to did deeper ... probably need to experiment a little.

Regards

Pete
