Programming axes manually

Recommended Posts

Hi,

is it possible to program controller axes output values manually? I wold like to do this for the throttle axes.

In the axis calibration window it shows the IN and OUT values. IN ranges from -16300 to +16300, OUT too when the axis is not processed. Using the idle and reverse setting does not work for the addon I want to use it with (the Eaglesoft Citation X, which is, as already discussed, not programmed according to FSUIPC standard). What happens is that as soon a negative OUT value is detected, the throttles disappear and I have only the upper half of the lever path for throttle control.

So: Can I manually assign corresponding OUT values to the IN values indepentendly to the axis calibration?

Throttle Full: IN +16300 / OUT +16300

Throttle Idle: IN -16300 / OUT 0

with linear characteristics (meaning having the full lever path available over the defined OUT value range).

Thanks and Regards

Boris

Assign the axis to a Lua plug-in. It's value will arrive as "ipcPARAM" and you can manipulate that in any way you like before posing it on using ipc.control.

Why not simply select the "No Reverse Zone" option in the calibration page? That avoids this completely. Quite a few aircraft need such treatment. You'd need to find anythere way (usually a button with repeating "Throttle Decr")

Throttle Full: IN +16300 / OUT +16300

Throttle Idle: IN -16300 / OUT 0

You can do that anyway, just using the calibration. Idle is always 0.
