problem throttle mapping 1,2 throttle > 3,4 engine

problem throttle mapping 1,2 throttle > 3,4 engine

somehow my 4 engine mapping does not work

reinstalled fsxse after long time DCS A10

installed P3D 3.23 (335 does weird)

FSUIPC seems to work fine overall (default, PMDG)

want a 4 engine in p3d, copy 747 and Constellation to P3D

 

checkbox Map 1->12, Map2->34

exclude Throttlen_SET tested On and OFF (what is this?)

in sim no luck

will NOT throttle 3 or 4

?

in fsuipc.ini I see added

 

[JoystickCalibration]

..

MapThr12to34=Yes

MapThr12to123=Yes

 

Warthog HOTAS (drivers installed) / Windows7 x64 / Prepar3D 3.23 / installed latest FSUIPC 4.955c (registered)

what am I missing?

Leave it to its default setting normally. It's only to stop a loop developing when the add-on aircraft itself uses those controls, which very few do these days.

How are you detecting this? In the calibration tab?

What throttle assignments do you have?  Where and what to? Perhaps you need to show me more of the INI file, not just two lines.

Note that some of the PMDG aircraft do not like FSUIPC calibration at all.

I do all normal stuff

2 throttle default no problems whatsoever (baron, king air)

I am an experienced fsuipc user, used to program compound buttons, use LINDA now, lots easier

attached fsuipc4.ini

it's really weird

Hi,

you should have noticed that your INI file shows very clear you have for default AC's the Throttle-HOTAS Warthog assigned but for the PMDG the Joystick-HOTAS Warthog with same axis (Z, R) !?

[JoyNames]
AutoAssignLetters=No
A=Joystick - HOTAS Warthog
B=Throttle - HOTAS Warthog
C=Saitek Pro Flight Rudder Pedals
0=Joystick - HOTAS Warthog
0.GUID={B8AFA370-1A90-11E6-8001-444553540000}
1=Throttle - HOTAS Warthog
1.GUID={B8AFCA80-1A90-11E6-8002-444553540000}
2=Saitek Pro Flight Rudder Pedals
2.GUID={B8B08DD0-1A90-11E6-8007-444553540000}
...
[Axes]
...
3=BZ,256,D,10,0,0,0	-{ DIRECT: Throttle2 }-
4=BR,256,D,9,0,0,0	-{ DIRECT: Throttle1 }-
...
[Axes.FSX B747]
RangeRepeatRate=10
0=0Z,256,D,10,0,0,0	-{ DIRECT: Throttle2 }-
1=0R,256,D,9,0,0,0	-{ DIRECT: Throttle1 }-

For default you use controller B (1) but for PMDG you use controller 0 (A)

OhOh
good news, found the culprit

When testing/cleaning up the fsuipc4.ini

I noticed I had ‘forgotten’ about this ThrottleManager.LUA
(sorry about that)

so, disabled in [AUTO]
et voilá,
4 Throttle levers

that’s the good news

the bad news is,

I really really (really) like that ThrottleManager.LUA
it does ‘toggle switch and throttle lever switches to reverse thrust’
(I edited the Lua options within, so it doesnt do anything automatic and shows onscreen its status)

so f.i. because of Warthog HOTAS switch layout;

I land pmdg737 at idle,
toggle (EAC and RDR/ALTM) switches underneath HOTAS throttle levers,
Fsuipc_window on screen tells me throttles 1 & 2 are in reverse now,
so apply reverse thrust,
at 60, idle,
toggle 2 switches, taxi

that’s a great little LUA

it appears to be programmed for 4 material throttle levers
unfortunately, when I look at the ThrottleManager.LUA I have no idea where even to start to make it compliant with fsuipc Map

Any chance you can have a look at the ThrottleManager.LUA?
(You should try it anyway, it’s great)

Perhaps you know of a working version Lua that does same?

Thanks already

attached,
my custom ThrottleManager.LUA

and again, sorry I missed this before

by the way, would it even be possible to 'unload'/kill/disable a (one like this) Lua?

for instance when ThrottleManager.LUA is auto started in [auto]

is it ever possible to 'unload'/kill/disable this lua from within the running sim 

(as in: reload button definition, will unload any an edited ini with deleted [auto], would then (re-)start pristine fsuipc4.ini)

a ‘lua extension menu’ of some sorts might even/also come to mind (as in x-plane sometimes)
where one can enable/kill/disable x-plane ‘extensions’, but in this case running lua’s

so to manage ill-behaved or peculiar add-on prog’s (on the fly, not having to restart sim)

? thx

Yes of course. As listed on the first page of the Lua Plug-ins document, there's an assignable FSUIPC control called "LuaKill" exactly for this purpose. There#s even one called LuaKillAll to kill all running plugins. You can start then with the Lua control as well of course. The Auto loading facility is really just making use of this.
