MIXTURE SET do not work at all

I really tried hard to set the MIXTURE SET command with various values to a joystick button.

But whatever value I used, there was simply no reaction to the mixture lever in the Sim.

 

But: MIXTURE RICH or MIXTURE LEAN works nicely.

 

Whats the miracle behind MIXTURE SET? Which values to I need to enter there?

What aircraft are you using? Many controls are specific to the aircraft being used - you should always specify the aircraft if you cannot determine what to use to control a function.

Have you tried logging axis controls (and possibly events) to see what is logged when you move the mixture lever in the aircraft in question?

Thanks for your quick answer John!

 

I'm using the SWS Kodiak! And I didnt tried to map the Mixture (which here is the Fuel-Control-Switch) to an Axis, but to an 3-way switch.

Then I assigned an Axis to Mixture and it controls number 66292 with values from -16384 (cutoff) to +16258 (high idle).

next try is to map a button to MIXTURE SET. this controls number 65773. Why is this a different control number?

Ok. Then try activating logging for events, and then move the Fuel-Control-Switch to its various positions to see if any events are logged. If they are, try assigning to them. Also, maybe take a look at the MF preset list (https://hubhop.mobiflight.com/) to see if there are any presets available for the SWS Kodiak.

There are different control numbers as they are different controls:
    66292   AXIS_MIXTURE_SET
    65773   MIXTURE_SET
See the auto-generated document 'Controls List for MSFS Build 999.txt' in your FSUIPC7 documents folder for a list of MSFS provided controls.
The difference between these is the range - MIXTURE_SET uses 0 to +16383 whereas AXIS_MIXTURE_SET uses -16383 to +16383
But you probably shouldn't be using the axis mixture controls if the mixture control is not an axis in the aircraft itself...

And I don't understand why you want to map a button to Mixture Set - for buttons you would normally use the rich/lean (and inc/dec) controls - as you seem to be doing...

I also don't have the SWS Kodiak 100, so cannot really advise on how to configure FSUIPC for this aircraft. This post on the Asobo forums may help - it refers to the Bravo but should be nearly the same for other controllers: https://forums.flightsimulator.com/t/kodiak-100-mixture-lever-on-honeycomb-bravo-with-fsuipc/506489

Shouldn't it be condition lever for the Kodiak rather than mixture. 

Possibly, but not having this aircraft I do not know - the OP should certainly try the condition lever controls.

Thanks for the hint,

John
