fsuipc not recognize the heading knob decrease in saitek multi panel


Recommended Posts

Hi, for some reason fsuipc does not read or recognize the heading knob when i decrease it in PMDG 737ngx, it works fine when i increase it. I programed in spad as a rotary knob fsuipc virtual button 64.6 clockwise and 64.7 counter clockwise. the altitude, VS, IAS and CRS, work fine. All the key commands are set in the CDU, its just the decrease function of the HDG that doesn't work. I'd appreciate any help please in this problem.

If you programmed it in FSUIPC then obviously FSUIPC does read and recognise you knob, turned both ways from what you say! So you really mean you don't know how to program it for the NGX.

 

How are you programming it? The PMDG aircraft have autopilots which don't use any of the standard FS controls.

Hi Pete, thanks for your prompt response, I programmed the knob in SPAD first as a fsuipc virtual button like this ALT 64.0 62.1, VS 64.2 64.3, IAS 64.4 64.5, HDG 64.6 64.7, CRS 64.8 64.9. When I go to fsuipc to program them, fsuipc recognizes all of them but the 64.7 for the heading, when I turn it counter clockwise nothing happens if I turn it clockwise it recognizes the 64.6, do you have any idea why this is happening? All the rest work fine clockwise and counter clockwise.

Thanks for giving me some of you time.

I am not familiar with SPAD. Does it detect button 7, or did you just program it with numbers?

 

The virtual button system is used a lot -- I use around 80 of them for my multi-page WideFS "ButtonScreen"s, for small touch screens in the cockpit.

 

There's really no way a bit can get set in the virtual button offsets without it being detected in FSUIPC, so I really think you need to check the detection into SPAD.

 

For more data you could use FSUIPC's IPC write logging to see what gets written to FSUIPC offsets when you turn the knob. Button 64,7 would be the top bit (0x80) in offset byte 0x3340.

spad detects it, also linda only in fsuipc programing it doesn't, i found this on the fsuipc note pad. p64,7 is missing, do you think I can add it manually?  sorry for keep bugging you.
