Offsets for PMDG 737NGX - Idle/Cutoff levers

Recommended Posts

Hi,

Can anyone tell me which offsets and parameters work with the Idle Cutoff levers in the PMDG 737NGX, and what type of offset they are? Someone gave me the following offsets, but they change when I click OK. Offset for Eng #1 - 70320, and for # 2 - 70321. When I input these numbers, they change to x0320 and x0321 after clicking OK. I want to assign a button to control the levers.

Thanks

Rob

You are a bit mixed up here! Offsets are locations, or references for data. They are not controls. The numbers you quote are NOT offsets, but controls -- and custom controls at that, only used by the 737NG (after the PMDG update providing the SDK). Just assign in FSUIPC to <custom control> and put the number in as the parameter.

BTW usually, on all jets in FS, the fuel idle/cutoff levers are controlled by the FS Mixture controls -- i.e. Mixture1 lean/rich and Mixture2 lean/rich. Are you sure they don't work for the NGX?

Thanks Pete, they work to move the lever into idle, but do not work to return the lever to cutoff. Are there other offsets for this?

"Lean" is cutoff, "rich" is idle.

I tried the FSX controls and the key presses only work with engine # 1.

What key presses? You want mixture controls, "mixture1 ..." for engine 1, "mixture2 ... " for engine 2., etc.

Thanks Pete, got it now. Is there any documentation/list of offsets for the PMDG 737NGX? I have looked in the FSUIPC and PMDG docs but can't find any reference to the aircraft.

Thanks

I sspect you are still a bit confused. Offsets for the NGX data readouts are listed in a document installed in your FSUIPC Documents folder. Have you looked? The title of that document should be obvious to you.

The specific assignable custom controls for the NGX are listed at the end of the PMDG_NGX_SDK.h file provided by PMDG in their SDK. This is mentioned in the section "Notes for programmers" in the document in the FSUIPC Documents folder I just pointed you at.

The controls we have just been discussing, however, are standard FS controls and apply to all jet engined aircraft in FS, so they are of Microsoft origin and you need to refer to FS help and documents. They are specific engine variants of the same controls FS assigns by default to Ctrl+Shft+F1 and Ctrl+Shift+F4.
