FSUIPC- Explanation of button selections/names?

Recommended Posts

There are a LOT of selections in FSUIPC for buttons to do different things.  So that's awesome.  Some of them are very obvious.  But others are not.  Is there a guide to what the selections are?  

 

Like "Nav 1 Sound Toggle"  or "Nav 1 sound set"....I thought one of these would turn on the Nav 1 radio to listen to the Ident of the nav station.  But neither work for me.

 

Also I'm flying the Milviz 310R and there is no selection for boost pump 1 and 2??

 

thanks.

Look in the Modules folder and find the FSUIPC Documents folder.

In there you will find the "Revised_List_of_FSX_Controls.pdf"

In that document you will find the following entries with their

control codes:

RADIO ADF IDENT DISABLE

RADIO ADF IDENT ENABLE

RADIO ADF IDENT SET

RADIO ADF IDENT TOGGLE

RADIO ADF2 IDENT DISABLE

RADIO ADF2 IDENT ENABLE

RADIO ADF2 IDENT SET

RADIO ADF2 IDENT TOGGLE

RADIO DME1 IDENT DISABLE

RADIO DME1 IDENT ENABLE

RADIO DME1 IDENT SET

RADIO DME1 IDENT TOGGLE

RADIO DME2 IDENT DISABLE

RADIO DME2 IDENT ENABLE

RADIO DME2 IDENT SET

RADIO DME2 IDENT TOGGLE

RADIO SELECTED DME IDENT DISABLE

RADIO SELECTED DME IDENT ENABLE

RADIO SELECTED DME IDENT SET

RADIO SELECTED DME IDENT TOGGLE

RADIO VOR1 IDENT DISABLE  

RADIO VOR1 IDENT ENABLE

RADIO VOR1 IDENT SET

RADIO VOR1 IDENT TOGGLE  

RADIO VOR2 IDENT DISABLE

RADIO VOR2 IDENT ENABLE  

RADIO VOR2 IDENT SET   

RADIO VOR2 IDENT TOGGLE

If you are using an "advanced" high fidelity aircraft, chances are

that many functions are coded using local variables (L:Vars) in

the various gauges. These variables, unlike the default FSX commands

such as those above, are not 'visable' for FSUIPC4 to use unless you

create a MCRO file definuing those variables and the type of operation

to perform (SET, TOGGLE, etc). You will fimd information on these items,

and many other valuable bits of knowledge, in the "FSUIPC4 for Advanced Users.pdf:,

a 'must read' for anyone wanting to exercise the power of FSUIPC4.

Page 37 begins the section on the MCRO file. Pages 40 and 41 have information

on Gauge local variables (L:Vars).

 

 

I would set up shortcuts to both of those documents as the information they contain

will be most helpful in unleashing the power of FSUIPC4 :)

Need a little help in setting the FSUIPC buttons..........in the default CH yoke, the two red left hand buttons are called (in P3D settings) "BIEW PREVIOUS CATAGORY" and "VIEW NEXT CATAGORY"...........but when tring to set this up in FSUIPC, I cannot find this lable, so obviously cannot duplicate the default CH yoke...................has anyone done this and how??............what lables do you use??................I have the rest of the yoke buttons set except for these two, so would greatly appreciate finding this answer..............thanks,        B42L8

I would try some of the following controls, found in the Revised List of FSX Controls.pdf:

 

NEXT_SUB_VIEW     66153

NEXT_VIEW              65827

PREV_SUB_VIEW     66154

PREV_VIEW              65828

VIEW_MODE             65567

VIEW_MODE_REV    65749

VIEW_TYPE              65829

VIEW_TYPE_REV     65830

Follow up, with this list, and checking the P3D settings for the default CH yoke, it is EASY to get the FSUIPC to do exactly what one wants.....I have all the buttons and levers set correct for me..............OH yes, I did have a lot of trouble with the Saitek quadrants, where the 4th and 5th, levers would go vrom min -16,400 to 0, (then jump up to 16,400), while all the other went smotth from min to max.......so I calibrated those two from -16,400 to max 0, and now the levers all work smooth.............not sure if this was correct, but it worked for me, if anyone else is having this problem....................B42L8
