Airbus start separate engines

Hi I have an apparently easy question. I am trying to configure the airbus starters. I've tried all possible functions, but the only one I got was the engine auto start. Only that way he drives the 2 engines together and I wanted to do it separately. Logically I tried engine 1 autostart for engine 1 and engine2 autostart for engine 2. But the plane doesn't understand the fsuipc command. I tried with parameter 1 and I couldn't do it either. any tips? thank you very much

 The separate engine autostart controls are FSUIPC-added controls that use various offsets (depending on the aircraft type) to auto-stat the engine. Those offsets, or the controls/events sent when using those offsets, may no be working in the vanilla A320. I'll make a note and look into this at some point, but it may take a few weeks to get around to this. You could try one of the FBW mods to see if its working there.

FBW is not working separete engines aswell

Have you asked about this over on the FBW forums?
There also seem to be quite a few posts on the Asobo forums on starting the A320, e.g. https://forums.flightsimulator.com/t/cant-start-engines-airbus-320/358396/9

Does this work via the UI controls? If so, you could see what event are being used and try to duplicate. Otherwise, if there are any A320 users out there that have this working, maybe they can comment...

I do not know if you still try to find the solution but I could make it work with that code.

You juste have to replace the "A" with the letter of your joystick and the "3, 2, 7 and 6" with the right button number (3=ENG2, 2=ENG1, 7=IGNI/START, 6=CRANK for me)

cheers
