Cant create mouse macro


Recommended Posts

I am using FSX sp2 with newly purchased FSUIPC Version 4.86 windows 7

I have followed instructions to create mouse macro but not working.

I have tried this on all butons on default fsx planes.

I press key presses tab - create mouse macro then OK.

i give it a name in the next pop-up then OK.

back to fsx, when I click any of the butons with the mouse, nothing happens, I dont get the green dialoge at the top of the screen.

please can you tell me where am I going wrong.

Thanks

Robert

As documented, Mouse Macros only work on gauges created with the standard FS C/C++ gauge SDK. Microsoft's own aircraft hardly use that at all, with all their gauge code built-into the main code instead. For default aircraft use the FS controls instead.

For some add-on aircraft mouse macros do not work either, as they are, these days, often written in XML. For those you may be able to use L:vars instead, sometimes.
