FSUIPC4 assigment definitions missing?


Recommended Posts

Today I was attempting to make joystick assignments in FSUIPC4, but there are a couple of assignments I can't seem to locate so I thought I'd ask for some help. First there is the "cycle view" and  "open/close doors", additionally, is there just one assignment for gear up/down using the same button rather then two, i.e., up button then down button? I'd appreciate any help, thank you.

The names are those used internally (and in the saved assignments file) and obtained automatically from FS at run time. I don't know them all by heart, I have to look them up -- there's a lit provided in your FSUIPC Documents folder. You can also find out what they are called by enabling Event logging in FSUIPC and using the controls (by keypress or mouse) and seeing what is logged.

 

However, for the ones you ask they are pretty easy to remember.

 

I think "cycle view" might be "Next view". But try it. There's also a "Next sub view". You could find these in the published List document by searching on "view".

 

Doors are called Exits in FS, so just search for Exit. I think it is "Toggle aircraft exit" and you can give the exit number as the parameter -- 1, 2, 3, or 4. I think it defaults to 1.

 

FS has never provided separate controls for Gear Up and Gear Down. The only way you can do that is to assign to the FSUIPC Offset word set control with the correct offset for the Gear state and the appropriate value as parameter. All the offsets are listed in the Offsets list ("FSUIPC4 Offsets Status"), again in your FSUIPC Documents subfolder.
