Macro doesn't appear in FSUIPC drop-down

Recommended Posts

HI John,

I cannot get a macro to be displayed in the button drop-down list in FSUIPC5. This relates to Xtreme Prototypes Learjet 25 where they use their own Yaw Damper code and not the default. I want to assign the macro to a GoFlight T8 switch for convenience.

There are two buttons on the aircraft’s centre pedestal – Yaw Damper On and Yaw Damper Off. Pressing one also changes the other.  The company uses LVar variables which should be accessible to the user for manipulation in FSUIPC.

From that I searched for Yaw and there are 6 entries. I suspect that I need to use L:PedestalAutopilotYawDamperOnButtonPosition and L:PedestalAutopilotYawDamperOffButtonPosition.

I can’t see anything wrong with my macro but it isn’t listed in the dropdown for Buttons & Switches under “Control sent when button pressed”. Any ideas?

Hi John,

After installing that dll I loaded P3D and brought up FSUIPC. Selected the Profile Specific option and moved the switch. When I clicked on the dropdown box it was initially blank and then a second later P3D crashed. This is the report...

Hi Ray.

I just checked this and it worked for me, although I invented an LVAR name that didn't exist. This is what I got in my ini:
    11=PT,0,CM1:1,44     -{Macro longMacro: L:MyExtremelyLongLvarNameToCrashP3DWhenUsed set}-
The lvar name is truncated in the UI, but can still be selected and used. I'll need to investigate further.

John
