Couple of newbie questions


Recommended Posts

I'm running FS2020 and in the C172.  When I turn on log events my log window gets spammed with:

  1660516 *** EVENT: Cntrl= 66280 (0x000102e8), Param= 0 (0x00000000) RADIO_COMMNAV1_TEST_TOGGLE
  1660516 *** EVENT: Cntrl= 66281 (0x000102e9), Param= 0 (0x00000000) RADIO_COMMNAV2_TEST_TOGGLE
  1660719 *** EVENT: Cntrl= 66280 (0x000102e8), Param= 1 (0x00000001) RADIO_COMMNAV1_TEST_TOGGLE
  1660719 *** EVENT: Cntrl= 66281 (0x000102e9), Param= 1 (0x00000001) RADIO_COMMNAV2_TEST_TOGGLE

This makes it very hard to read any other events in the output.  Is there a way to filter these certain events?

If I mouse click on a cockpit control and I don't see an event is there no way to bind a joystick button to it?  The 530 doesn't seem to have direct controls for a bunch of the buttons.  I fly in VR so I don't have any fancy LCD NAV components.  I'm just adding some rotaries so I don't have to reach for the mouse all the time but seems like a lot of stuff isn't bindable for the radios.

Examples of buttons I don't see any events for: PUSH C/V, PUSH CRSR, Direct To, etc.

In the bindings drop down I see a bunch of GPS_* commands but assigning them to a button doesn't seem to do anything for the 530.

 

thanks, Jeff

Yes - you can use the DontLogThese ini parameter, either in the [General] section of your FSUIPC7.ini (where it applies to all aircraft) or in a profile section. Please see the Advanced User guide for details.

Maybe. For the 530,  I would first look at the MobiFlight events with FSUIPC7:

Quote

// GNS 530:GROUP
AS530_ENT_Push
AS530_MENU_Push
AS530_FPL_Push
AS530_DirectTo_Push
AS530_CLR_Push_Long
AS530_CLR_Push
AS530_MSG_Push
AS530_OBS_Push
AS530_VNAV_Push
AS530_PROC_Push
AS530_COMSWAP_Push
AS530_NAVSWAP_Push
AS530_RNG_Dezoom
AS530_RNG_Zoom
AS530_RightLargeKnob_Right
AS530_RightLargeKnob_Left
AS530_LeftLargeKnob_Right
AS530_LeftLargeKnob_Left
AS530_RightSmallKnob_Right
AS530_RightSmallKnob_Left
AS530_RightSmallKnob_Push
AS530_LeftSmallKnob_Right
AS530_LeftSmallKnob_Left
AS530_LeftSmallKnob_Push

You need to install the MF WASM module, and make those events known to FSUIPC7 by using an event file. There is an old post in this forum with instructions and some event files that you can use (and also maybe try the MobiFlight website for instructions on how to install their WASM).

Thanks John that was very helpful.  I was able to get the log stuff and then started using MobiFLight.  I actually spent a bit of time writing custom firmware to the arduinos to make them show up as Joysticks but MobiFlight requires their firmware to be on the device.  I feel like I'm piling layers on top of layers just to do a simple thing.  The rest of my issues are with Mobiflight not using all of my pins but I'll post on there forums about that.
