Regarding fsuipc

Recommended Posts

Hello, i am quite familiar with fsuipc, but the one thing i cant figure out is how to properly set it up to pan in the VC with my hat switch on the ch yoke.I disable the default fs controls for my joysticks and have all controld configured through fsuipc, except for the vc.What is the proper way of setting fsuipc to be able to pan while in VC, ALso is there a way to speed up the pan rate, as editing the cfg pan rate to a high value i dont think it would affect the Fsuipc pan speed?Thanks

You need to read up on the FSUIPC advanced user's guide which describes how to create "offsets" which in turn says basically, if I am in the VC screen I want to pan and when I am in another mode I am getting my typical viewpoints. Has to be manually edited in the FSUIPC.ini file. Can not just be assigned like other buttons. I started programming that but from what I read the fastest it would pan is six FPS which was way to slow for my taste. I did not follow through as I was able to solve another issue which meant I did not have to manually program my hatswitch.If I am reading correctly you are also asking how to change the pan rate in the FS9.cfg file? If so, go to the controls section:[CONTROLS]KBDAIL=64KBDELEV=64KBDRUD=64PAN_RATE=750I have mine usually at 750 or 800. I think default is 400. You can mess around and see what works best for you.Hope that helps,Clutch

Thnaks, I already knew how to speed up the pan rate in cfg file but it wont affect the fsuipc pan rate as i disabaled joystick through fs menu. Maybe ill just use the F1 view utility to pan around then.Thanks for the quick reply.

Here is part of my FSUIPC.ini section. It will not work w/ your setup unless we have the same JS. Just to give you an Idea. See "FSUIPC Programming for Advanced Users" document for more info. My JS is setup to have 2 "alternate" function switches, tripling the button functions available, just FYI.

Since you're not doing compound buttons, you could in fact do it right from the FSUIPC dialog. FSUIPC / Buttons & Switches Tab / Move the Hat Sw. to the position you want to program / Select action under "Control sent when button pushed" --- repeat for all buttons. -- Done.Or manually modify the .ini as such ( notes provided )

[buttons]// Entry#,Button Type,JS#,Button#,Control Command,Opt //  8 POSITION HAT VIEWS - PANNING// REPEAT = CR , SINGLE = CP// The 11-18 are the entry numbers, renumber as necessary to fit within any previous [buttons] entries// The 32-39 are the button #s on the joystick hat, they will probably have to be renumbered,// Check calibrate dialog or owners manual for button #s11=CR,0,32,C65734,0  // Pan Up12=CR,0,33,C65856,0  // Pan Right Up13=CR,0,34,C65672,0  // Pan Right14=CR,0,35,C65857,0  // Pan Right Down15=CR,0,36,C65735,0  // Pan Down16=CR,0,37,C65855,0  // Pan Left Down  17=CR,0,38,C65671,0  // Pan Left18=CR,0,39,C65854,0  // Pan Left Up
