Honeycomb Bravo - PMDG 737NGXu MCP buttons P3Dv5


Recommended Posts

I am trying to program the MCP buttons.

Taking HDG as an example, I found in the PMDG_NG3_SDK.h file:

#define    EVT_MCP_HDG_SEL_SWITCH                    (THIRD_PARTY_EVENT_ID_MIN + 392)

Also: #define THIRD_PARTY_EVENT_ID_MIN                0x00011000        // equals to 69632

So adding 69632 and 392 I get 70024

If I then use FSUIPC to issue "ROTOR Brake 70024" on the HDG button but the HDG button does not activate.

Any advice would be appreciated.

What do you mean "ROTOR BRAKE 70024"? What does ROTOR BRAKE have to do with it?

The 70024 is a control  or event number. Program this as a <custom control> in FSUIPC.

Some add-on aircraft (eg. FSLabs A320) re-purpose the ROTOR BRAKE control with parameters that look like custom control numbers, instead of using custom controls directly, but I don't think this applies to the PMDG aircraft. There is a guide for using custom controls with PMDG aircraft here: https://www.myhomecockpit.de/index.php/en/?view=article&id=56
