Cannot Create FSUIPC Macro With DA Fokker


Recommended Posts

I am trying to create a macro with FSUIPC in FS9 for the DA Fokker. It is working fine with Flight1 ATR72 but with the Fokker the screen to enter the name of the action to be saved is not show up, i.e. Heading Increase.

 

That just means the gauges are not written in a way which allows Mouse Macros to work. The gauges have to be written using the standard Microsoft C/C++ gauge SDK. Very few new aircraft use it these days.

 

Surely heading inc/dec control is by standard controls in any case?

Thanks Pete for the reply. Is there any solution or workaround to make this work?

Don't the regular controls work? Have you checked their documentation for alternatives?

 

Does the panel use L:Vars? If so you can try those. Otherwise, does it support keystrokes for its functions?

 

If the makers of the aircraft simply do not want you to use any hardware with their aircraft then they don't need to supply any way of doing it for you. But perhaps you should first ask in their support forum?

 

Regards

What regular controls do you mean?. The documetnation of the add-on does not include this kinf of information.

 

I have checked in the forum and I did not find anything, but I might be wrong. How do I find out if the panel use L:Vars?

The FS controls, the ones you can assign directly in FS, or also in FSUIPC. The controls that everyone uses everyday for most aircraft. The ones listed in the assignments list in FS and in the assignments dropdowns in FSUIPC. There's a list in the FSUIPC Documents subfolder too, in your FS Modules folder.

Well, they wouldn't and shouldn't need to repeat the Microsoft documentation and Help for FS.

But didn't you ask your question there, where there's more likely to be folks who know what you need to do?

Log them using the FSUIPC assignable control for this, or the Lua plug-in called Log Lvars. The FSUIPC just lists them each time you use the assigned control, whilst the Lua plug in version logs changes so you can see which buttons and switches do what.
