Help - Unable to see LVAR Macro Offset when assigning buttons in FSUIPC6

Recommended Posts

*** Moved from User Contributions sub-forum. Please post all support requests for FSUIPC6  in the main support forum ***

Hi All

I have just downloaded FSUIPC6, and am in the process of trying to assign Macros for buttons, switches, LED,s etc for an add on aircraft. I followed a good tutorial on youtube (below), but they are using an earlier version of FSUIPC and i cannot seem to duplicate what they have done, i.e. my macros are not showing up in the fsuipc, buttons assignment list as in the video, i have outlined my workflow below, but can someone tell me what im doing wrong...

I am using P3D4

1) I generate a list of LVARS from the add on - for instance i want to turn the R Fuel Pump On.
2) Created a Macro 1=L:fuel_pump_right=Toggle (as per the tutorial advice) which is saved in my fsuipc root directory as fuel_pump_right.MCRO located in: c:, program files, lockheed martin
3)I open fsuipc, click the hardware button to generate a button number and then try to find the created macro  in the dropdown list which i am unable to find.

Can you advise what i am doing wrong?

First, you posted in the User Contributions sub-forum where it explicitly states NOT for support requests. I have moved your post for you, but please take care in future to post in the correct forum.

Are you sure that is you FSUIPC installation folder? You can verify this by using the 'Open Folder' button in FSUIPC's Logging tab, which will open a windows explorer window on your FSUIPC installation folder. Try that and see if you can see your macro file in that folder. I suspect not!

Also, when FSUIPC6 detects a macro file it will add it to the [MacroFiles] section of your FSUIPC6.ini file. Do you see anything there? If not, you will not be able to assign to it. Note that it does this automatically - do not manually edit that section.

C:\Program Files\Lockheed Martin is the location.

Really? You installed FSUIPC6 in your top-level LM folder?  I would advise against that...
Did you check your FSUIPC6.ini file?

Please attach both your FSUIPC6.log and FSUIPC6.ini files and I will take a look.

im still set from when it used to place in a modules folder

You can still use the Modules folder id you wish, but still better to install outside of the LM folder really - and outside of windows protected folders, like Program Files. You did say it was installed in the LM top-level folder, not the Modules folder.

Anyway, the file must have the extension .mcro. That file has .MACRO.txt
