Switching between Throttle and Reverse by button press


Recommended Posts

Hey,

 

sorry if this question was already asked, I used the search function but didn't find a satisfying answer.

 

I'm wondering if there's a possibility within FSUIPC to program a button in a way that it changes my throttle axis to a reverse axis whenever I press this specific button? I've got a Thrustmaster Hotas X joystick and my settings are as following:

 

From -16384 to -256 there is a reverse "zone"

From 0 to +16384 there is the throttle "zone"

 

but that doesn't to work quite properly with addons like the PMDG 737 and 777. So now I want to assign the whole axis, so from -16384 to +16384 to the axis and after touchdown, I want to press a button to change from throttle axis to reverse axis so that from this moment, at -16383 there is idle reverse until +16384 is maximum reverse.

 

Does that make sense to you? Is there a way to program that?

 

Thanks for your advice!

You say you searched, but evidently not in the User Contributions subforum? I just searched there just using "throttle reverse" and found two threads which may help:

 

"Aerosoft Airbus X Throttle Reverse + FSUIPC Resolved"

 

and

 

"Throttle Manager to Allow Axis Forward/Reverse Toggle"

Oops my bad, I didn't have a look in the User Contributions forum. Apologies for that.

 

The first option doesn't work for me, already tested but was not successful with it.

 

The second option however could be what I'm looking for. I just can't get it to work like I want. Maybe you can help me with that?

 

I only have a single thrust lever, so I can't assign each engine to a different thrust lever axis. When I follow the instruction for Engine #1, everything works perfect. But I want it to work for all engines. How do I do that? I already tried using "Map to 4 throttles" but that doesn't work.

Did you read through the thread? I'm sure folks must have asked. I know there's stuff later on dealing with multiple (up to 4) engines).  I don't know the Lua code there myself and I don't really have time this week to analyse it (off to South Africa on Friday). It looks quite sophisticated.

 

I think the author is very helpful and so if the answer is not already there in that long thread he would probably respond if you asked him. The thread is not closed.
