Not able to create Mouse Macros now

Recommended Posts

Never had a problem before but after a reinstall of FSX the Create Mouse macro function will not work as before. Latest version (4.91) and everything good except for that one thing. Tried with several plane, default and add-ons, with same outcomes.

 TheFSUIPC4.log for rhe last trial shows mouse events that correspond to switches being thrown in the Baron.

They surely look like mouse Macros but no red/green popups when they are activated.

Perhaps I set something incorrectly and the dialogue boxes are blocked?

Your help appreciated. My thanks in advance

I don't think the default FSX Baron has any Mouse Macro capable switches or buttons -- certainly not many anyway. I don't think any of the default FS (FS9 or FSX) aircraft have such gauges. You have to have add-on aircraft with gauges made using the FS C/C++ gauge SDK for Mouse macros to work.

    71729 Mouse Event=66287

    75629 Mouse Event=66241

    79014 Mouse Event=66363

    80465 Mouse Event=66364

   200679 Mouse Event=66241

   202957 Mouse Event=66363

   204267 Mouse Event=66364

   205812 Mouse Event=66293

 

 

All those are standard assignable FS controls. If you enable the Event logging in FSUIPC you'll see their names. Otherwise look up the nmbers in the "List of FSX controls" in your FSUIPC Documents folder. Just assign your buttons or keypresses to the correct controls.

OOps, I had forgotten that about defaults.

I tried first with Majestic Dash 8 (which worked properly before the reinstall). Also tried Milviz 737, PMDG 737, Carenado Centurion  but could not get the green/red title box.

Before each aircraft was loaded I "ended Macro Making", clicked OK then reopened fsuipc to enable the "Create..."

What am I doing incorrectly?

Thanks

Btw,,,there are no Mouse Events listed  in the log for the add-ons

Are you sure any of those are mouse macro capable? Most add-on aircraft these days use XML gauges and can be programmed using L:Vars instead.

 

As a test, load the default Mooney Bravo (not the G1000 version). On the 2D panel, try the NAV/GPS switch, left hand side, middle, or the buttons on the VS/ALT gauge above and to the left, or the AP or FD buttons top left. All those are mouse macro-able.

 

There's no need to close and open macro-making between loading aircraft unless you want to create different macro files for each.

Pete:

Don't think I'm crazy please. Just turned on my PC, loaded FSX, followed your instructions, and Macros created as they should.

So...I loaded the Majestic Dash 8 and now Mouse Macros work with it also. Ditto the other add-ons I mentioned.

When this problem appeared I did restart FSX but that did not help. Never occurred to me that a PC restart would do anything.

Anyhow, thaks for such a quick response.

Evidently something somewhere got corrupted. Thanks for letting me know.
