fire extinguisher offset FSX


Recommended Posts

wich offset I must write to engage the fire extinguisher for Engine 1 or Engine 2 on a turobo prop airplane (e.G. Piper Cheyenne)

Is that a default FSX aircraft? If not it may not obey FSX default methods.

Did you check the Offsets list installed in your FSUIPC documents folder? Just search for "fire". There's an offset which flags fires in each of up to 4 engines. You can set the flags to start a fire or clear them to extinguish one.

Thanks.

I have only found EXTINGUISH_ENGINE_FIRE in the List of FSX controls.pdf but not in the FSUIPC4 Offsets Status.pdf. I have no idea how can I write the EXTINGUISH_ENGINE_FIRE for Engine 1 or Engine 2 when I press a button. Can you give me i little example (maybe)?

thanks again from enrico

Didn't you search on the word "Fire" as I said? You would find an offset which has 4 active bits in it, one for each engine. 1 = fire, 0 = No fire. You can read and write it

You said you wanted an offset. If you want to use a control, why not just assign your buttons to EXTINGUISH_ENGINE_FIRE with parameter 1 or 2 respectively? I don't understand why you just don't go ahead?

thanks a lot.

but i can find in the FSUIPC ADDON where I can assign the buttons to EXTINGUISH_ENGINE_FIRE. EXTINGUISH_ENGINE_FIRE is not in the select menu from FSUIPC. Second question. What is the price for professional use of FSUIPC?

Yes it is. It is clearly listed as "Extinguish engine fire". All controls listed in the document, and more, are in the assignments dropdowns. They are all in alphabetic order. If you can't scroll down for yourself just press the 'E' key to get close.

There's no separate pricing.
