PilotEdge PTT Function Using FSUIPC via SimConnect

Recommended Posts

I must first confess that I have recently realized that although I thought I was pretty good with using FSUIPC that I am merely a neophyte. The more I read, the more I understand how little I know. That said, I am trying to learn a bit more about the relationship between FSUIPC and SimConnect.  I get that FSUIPC communicates to FS/P3D through SimConnect but I need a bit of help with the exact mechanics. 
 

I have multiple switches (buttons) that activate the PTT On/Off feature in FSUIPC. These are Control Yoke MIC switches, and ACP R/T switches. I can assign these to the PTT On/Off feature in FSUIPC without difficulty. But when I try to assign a PTT switch in the PilotEdge Client it only recognizes the Joystick button assignment not the other assignments in FSUIPC.

Keith at PilotEdge has provided the SimConnect event names (PILOTEDGE.PTT_ON and PILOTEDGE.PTT_RELEASE) but I do not know how to access these from FSUIPC.

Any help, or a pointer to any documentation on this would be greatly appreciated.

These are known as Add-on Custom Events - see the Advanced User guide, page 38. To use them, create an event file in your FSUIPC7 installation folder, e.g. PilotEdge.evt,  and add the following content:

[Events]
0=PILOTEDGE.PTT_ON
1=PILOTEDGE.PTT_RELEASE

then restart FSUIPC7, and you should see and be able to assign to those events as you would any other FS events.
