Flaps Increment Decrement T45C MSFS version

Dino Cattaneo
T45C for MSFS version 1.18

Using FSUIPC7
Buttons assignments
Flaps Inc / Dec
 
Example:
from flaps Up
Button assigned to Inc Flaps
flaps go to full down rather than Half

I e-mailed Dino Cattaneo about this problem and he replied:

“For the record, there is no special code for flaps control in the T-45 - everything is handled at sim level.”

Your log shows FLAPS_UP and FLAPS_DOWN controls being sent, and not FLAPS_INCR and FLAPS_DECR, which explains the issue - parially.
Can you check your assignments in MSFS for the buttons you are using for the flaps in the T-45C, as these controls are not coming from FSUIPC.
Also, your flaps in/dec are assigned to different buttons in different profiles. Can you please generate a new log for me, the same as before but also activate logging for Buttons & Keys. For the T-45C, your flaps are assigned to your Warthog Throttle.

Buttons 21 and 22, as your images show - but the ini is a lot more readable for me, not sure why you posted those images.

I have several saved profiles for my devices e.g., CH pedals, Thrustmaster Warthog , Thrustmaster Airbus.

All should use Flaps Inc, Dec.

The reason I posted those images was to show what I wanted sent to the sim when I moved the switch on the Thrustmaster Warthog.
Just to verify if it is ok to send images that I think would be helpful?

All my profiles in the sim should be blank so fsuipc controls the functions sent to the sim.
Because throttle, ailerons ect. were all working I assumed my profile was ok except for the flaps.

My ini file should show I never select Flaps Up or Down.
For all aircraft in all my profiles and FSUIPC I select Flaps Inc / Dec.

Is that what you see in the ini file I sent?

You mentioned: "Also, your flaps in/dec are assigned to different buttons in different profiles."

I now went and found that the profile in use was “MSFS default” for Thrustmaster Warthog Throttle instead of the required blank profile that I had set up long time ago for FSUIPC. The Thrustmaster Joystick profile was correct (not the MSFS default).
Maybe this happened after the last MSFS Update.

Anyway, I selected my blank profile and now the flaps are working.

Thanks for your help.

Yes, that would have been the issue. However, I'm surprised that there were no FLAPS_INCR or FLAPS_DECR controls logged as well, coming from FSUIPC, which is why I asked for the additional logging. However, if its now working then there is no need, but still strange...

There is a interesting "Simvars.exe" in the MSFS SDK > Samples > SimvarWatcher > bin > x64 > Release.

Yes, that has been available from the initial release. However, if developing using FSUIPC offsets, you may find the FSInterrogate2 utility useful - its available in the Utils folder of your FSUIPC7 installation.

P.S. not sure your post is related to this thread!
