Mouse Macro Issue FSUIPC 5.13 P3D V4


Recommended Posts

Moved to Main Forum. Please ask questions related to FSUIPC always in Main Forum as it might not be seen in a Sub-Forum.

Hi Pete,

Just upgraded to FSUIPC 5.13 for P3D V4 and noticed you have now included the mouse macro functionality. So thankful!

I wanted to get it running with my iFly 737 add-on, though not sure what I am doing wrong.

The mouse macro feature seems to work with single inputs, though it seems to disappear if I program a macro with more than one input (ie moving a overhead switch twice).

Any ideas?

Thanks

I would say if the switch moves twice, i.e. 0-1-2, and it is controlled by mouse that it moves 0->1 and with a second click on the same spot it moves 1->2 then it will work. But if the Mouse Macro you define operates the same switch in two spots for two definitions it will not work as how should the macro know which of the both definitions to operate.

Hi Thomas,

Thanks for getting back to me.

It takes two clicks of the mouse to get the desired movement (ie controlled by mouse that it moves 0->1 and with a second click on the same spot it moves 1->2 ).

I used to be able to get it working in FSX with clicking the movement, naming the macro, clicking again, then calling the macro the same name.  Could this procedure have changed?

it has changed in FSUIPC5 as P3Dv4 works different. In FSX it was a hack into the code. It might be a problem in P3Dv4 that it doesn't work that way.

Did you try to to define a second button to the second switch function for testing?
