help with event logging

Recommended Posts

Hi, i'm logging some Prepar3d v2 addon aircrafts events to assign keys to them, but the FSUIPC log doesn't show all the events that i need, like cabin heat, cabin vent, panel lights, just to name some of them. I've tried with various aircraft but there's always some events that won't show in the log window... any suggestions? thank you so much!

Are you sure they are operated by Key Events? I've never seen any for cabin heat or cabin vents, for example. Cosmetic buttons and switches which don't actually do anything won't result in events being sent because there's no need. 

 

Additionally many add-on aircraft do their own thing, not using built-in simulator-defined events. You often need to find alternative ways to control them, which is why FSUIPC provides the "mouse macro" system, which works with C/C++ compiled gauges to actually call code directly, if possible, and also "LVars" (Local Panel variables) which can be set by FSUIPC macros.

 

You might also find information for your add-on aircraft in the User Contributions subforum, where many solutions have been found and published.

Thank you for your reply Pete! So even if they're not operated by key is still there some way to control them in the ways you've suggested? Or cosmetic buttons just can't be controlled? Thanks again
