Assign buttons FSLABS A3XX

Recommended Posts

I have looked into forum and different websites to figure out how to assign ignition and engine master switch in FSUIPC. I have a registreed version for P3DV4, and just got a Throttletek A320 flight box.
Topics I found are all regarindg FSX and creating a Macro. I have triede this and name file .MCRO but it is still not found in FSUIPC
The Macro I found looks like this

[Macros]
1=L:AB_PDS_Eng1Master=Set
2=L:AB_PDS_Eng2Master=Set
3=L:AB_PDS_ignition=Set

According to topic, it should appear in the top of the menu in FSUIPC and could be used for assignment.
Unfornutately it does not appear, thus it is placed in Modules folder

Any one who have a hint ?

the file should be called <something>.MCRO, e.g. A320.MCRO.

Any macro files find should also be listed in your .ini file - could you post/attach this please?

John

P.S. I moved your post from the FAQ section - please post all support requests here, in the support section. Thanks.

Thanks for your quick reply, and thanks for guiding me in this new world.
I have attached my INI file and my a320.mcro file who is located here C:\Program Files\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v4\Modules
FSUIPC5.ini

A320.MCRO.txt

Ohhhh I can see that MACRO file is named .txt - which text program does not save it as .txt ? I have created it as new file by right click on desktop and afterwards copied information into it.

Yes, that will be your problem!

If you left-click the filename and hold for a second or so before releasing, you can change the filename and extension (or right-click and 'Rename'). You will have to confirm the change.

Notepad++ is a good free source editor that a lot of people, including myself, use for this type of thing.

Btw, your FSUIPC version is quite old now - the latest (and only supported) version is 5.152. please update at some point.

Cheers,

John

P.S. Its a good idea to set the AutoAssignLetters ini parameter to Yes (or manually assign them - see the "Joy Letters" section of the User Guide, p24 in latest version). This will prevent possible problems if your USB device numbers change for some reason.

Thanks for your reply. I have now renamed it and updated to newest version 
It is placed in C:\Program Files\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v4\Modules 

But it is still not available in the top up the list in  FSUIPC, not even if i scroll down and search for the naming in file.

I´m sure it is because I miss something, but can´t figure out what.
I tried to follow José step by step guide from here https://forum.aerosoft.com/index.php?/topic/78593-master-eng-switch-12/

Your macro file is not valid - you are missing the first line:

[Macros]
