Hi there,

Before anything else I would like to assure you that I spent several hours trying to understand the FSUIPC for the advanced user regarding KEY PRESS and have attempted to search for answers in google. But to no avail and or I just did not understand the technicallity of it.

Basically what I wanted to attain is to be able to only press one key to send a series of key presses.

I'm flying the PMDG 747 and what i wanted is that when I land I want to only use Engine 2 and 3 for my reverse thrust... (same during taxi, i want to use only engine 2 and 3)

I know that it can be attained by pressing the keyboard combination E+2+3 but i'm wondering if is it possible to set a key press where i only press E (or a single key) and fsuipc will send the combination e+2+3

and i'm planning to use letter W to send the combination e+1+2+3+4 to get 4 engines..

Thank you.

ian

In FSUIPC you can't directly assign keypresses to keypresses -- for what should be reasonably obvious reasons. Generally there is never a need in any case. There are ways round it (using FSUIPC "krypress/release" controls), but they are fraught with difficulty and unreliability, because the real key down/ keyup messages get intertwined with the mapped ones, and the end result is not easily predictable.

It sounds like you only have one throttle lever, right?

The best bet is to use the FSUIPC Offset controls to access directly the value in FS which those E+ keystrokes affect. That is 0888.

Assign your choice of key for engines 2+3 to Offset Byte Set with x888 in the offset field and 6 in the parameter field (4=eng 3, 2=eng 3, 4+2=6).

Assign your choice of key for engines 1+2+3+4 to Offset Byte Set with x888 in the offset field and 15 in the parameter field (8=eng 4, 4=eng 3, 2=eng 3, 1=enf 1, 8+4+2+1=15).

Thank you so much for your thorough instructions... it did not only answer the question but you have actually opened up a lot of possibilities for me to explore.

I'm very grateful. :)

I have a Logitech G940 and it has 2 throttles...

Thank you Again for your dedication.
