Throttle configuration with FSUIPC4


Recommended Posts

Hi,

hope anybody can help.

I bought FSUIPC4 because I installed FSX and the WILCO Airbus A320.

Now I installed a self build Airbus throttle. The throttle is controlled by

BU0836 Controller.

To configure the range IDLE-TOGA  in the register axis assignment was no problem.

But how to configure the reverser in that register?

Which figure I have to write in the Little window (parameter) below key press & release for down

and which figure I have write in the other window (parameter) for up?

 

ciao

Sorry, I don't understand. Are you trying to use a button for reverse thrust, not a reverser lever?

 

Where does "key press" come into it? Where are you looking? Key presses don't have parameters, they are just presses of keys like on the keyboard. 

 

What are you trying to achieve?

Hi, Pete,

thank you for your feedback to my question about FSUIPC4.

Sorrry, my problem is, I am not perfect in English language.

So it is difficult to describe what I mean.

Last years I used to work with FS9 and the A320 with the throttle Lever.

In FS9 and FSUIPC 3.75 I put in the little parameter window 50+0 for the way down

and 77+0 for the way up to idle. Requirement was the following Change in the

fs9.cfg:

[Keyboard_main]

THROTTLE_FULL=115,8

THROTTLE_INCR_SMALL=114,6

THROTTLE_DECR=50,8

THROTTLE_CUT=77,8

I tried to make the same change for the fsx.cfg. But no success.

The Problem is I have no idea what the figures meant. I got the

figures from a other flightsimulator freak. No Chance to contact him.

You ask what I am trying to achieve?

Verry easy, I'd like use the throttel lever to trigger the reverser.

It works properly with FS9 but not in FSX.

At the moment I am using the keys F1+F2 to enable the reverser.

FSUIPC 3.75 is woefully out of date and completely unsupportable. You need to update.

 

I still cannot understand what "little window" you are talking about, now what these 50+0 or 77+0 values refer to. Why aren't you simple assigning the throttle in the axis assignments page. What actual Tab in FSUIPC are you using and what are these "little windows"?

 

Requirement was the following Change in the

fs9.cfg:

[Keyboard_main]

THROTTLE_FULL=115,8

THROTTLE_INCR_SMALL=114,6

THROTTLE_DECR=50,8

THROTTLE_CUT=77,8

 

 

What has the FS9.CFG file got to do with it? Why are you using the FULL INCR CUT  controls? They are for keyboard control, normally assigned to F2,F3,F4 and F5. To change the keyboard assignments you don't need to edit the CFG file, you just go into FS9's control assignments and assign your key presses there.

 

What has any of this to do with a throttle lever? I'm now even more thoroughly confused than I was after your first message! :-(

 

I tried to make the same change for the fsx.cfg. But no success.

 

FSX's keyboard assignments are not in the FSX.CFG file but in an XML file.

 

The Problem is I have no idea what the figures meant.

 

They are keycodes for keypresses. The first number is a keycode, the second the shift codes.  I provide a list in the FSUIPC Advanced User's guide, but generally there's no need to understand them -- just use the assignments dialogue in FS to assign keypresses to controls.

 

Verry easy, I'd like use the throttel lever to trigger the reverser.

 

So why are you using key presses. Where does the lever come into it?

 

Normally, with most aircraft, you can assign in FSUIPC to throttles then calibrate in the multiple throttles tab. You get a reverse zone below the idle position. Doesn't this work for you? In FSUIPC you can also assign a separate reverser.

 

If the aircraft doesn't respond to the normal controls for reverse thrust, then the normal thing to use is the THROTTLE_DECR control, repeating maybe to get full reverse. You can assign this control directly, you don't need keypresses (F2 is the default FS assignment for this control).

 

I think you are confusing yourself (and me) by thinking in terms of key presses.

 

Pete
