PMDG 737NGX, Flaps, and FSUIPC

Recommended Posts

Got it.

 

...

 

As you can see, Flaps Handle Index is registering "8" when it shouldn't.  This tracks with what we were seeing initially and with the FSUIPC Monitor program.

 

YOU have something odd going on there. There are two different Flaps controls operating, AXIS_FLAPS_SET, and FLAPS_SET. I suspect the PMDG code is doing some preprocessing of the AXIS_FLAPS_SET control before FSUIPC sees it and calibrates the values.

 

There are two possible ways to stop that. The first, and probably best (as it is far more efficient in any case) is to change the assignment mode to use "Direct to FSUIPC Calibration". This is more efficient because instead of having the control sent to FS to be intercepted by FSUIPC (just as if it were assigned in FS in the first place), it merely gets passed directly to FSUIPC's calibration routines. The removes two messages per change from the Windows message queue and also prevents the PMDG code from seeing the control first.

 

The other way would be to assign directly to the Flaps set control in the first place, instead of the Axis Flaps Set control. This still means it would go to FS first, and so be just as inefficient, but would probably defeat interference by the PMDG code.

 

The downside of either of these methods might be that the PMDG flaps don't then operate at all. I can't see that happening -- it depends how they've coded it all. But if this is the case you have no alternative but to leave the assignment as Axis flaps set, and cancel calibration (ie press the RESET button on the calibration option so it is no longer active).

Changed the lever to "Direct to FSUIPC Calibration"|Flaps.  Here's the resulting log:

Changed the lever to "Direct to FSUIPC Calibration"|Flaps.  Here's the resulting log:

 

And? What did you see as a result? It looks better, but I can't analyse it without knowing what I'm looking for!

 

Did you re-calibrate afterwards? I think you'd need to.

 

Something is still sending the occasional Axis flaps set control I see.

It looks like it's doing a "one step back, two steps forward" routine.  I sent it (0 - was here when the log started),1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,7,6,5,4,3,2,1,0.  I would think I'd want to see FSUIPC echo that and show those flap handle indexes in that order.

 

The log shows 1,2, 1,2,3, 2,3,4, 3,4,5, 4,5,6, 5,6,7, 6,7,8, 7,8, 7,6,5, 6,5,4, 5,4,3, 2,3,2, 1,0.  That's a very active flap handle index!

Apart from the worrying intrusions of the "Axis flaps set" controls, it mainly looks like it isn't calibrated. With a different way of assigning you need to Reset and re-do the calibration properly.
