Help needed, failed to change actions.lua for PMDG 777

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I am not a expert. I tried to change the actions.lua for the PMDG 777.

To change Min Radio Alt needs a lot of rotations of the knob. That is why I added the following lines:

 

 

function EFIS_CPT_MINIMUMS_incfast ()
                local i
                for i = 1, 5 do ipc.control(PMDGBaseVariable +182, 256) end
    DspShow ("MIN", "inc", "EFAS MIN", "inc")
end

function EFIS_CPT_MINIMUMS_decfast ()
local i
    for i = 1, 5 do ipc.control(PMDGBaseVariable +182, 128) end
                DspShow ("MIN", "dec", "EFAS MIN", "dec")
end

 

 

I have written "EFAS MIN" instead of "EFIS MIN" to see if the function is drawn when rotating the knob fast.

But this does not speed up the change of minimum altitude as expected.

Can anyone give me a hint what I did wrong?

 

Thanks a lot

Stefan

Hmmm ....

 

The 777 rotaries are very custom from PMDGs side.

But have you tried to change the setting in the FMC:

there is an option to make rotaries behave in two ways (can't remember the naming now)

If you change that, you can dial them with the normal function and they would speed up as far as I remember ...
