FSUIPC and engine start switches

Recommended Posts

I treid programming switches to my controls and I wanted to set engine start switches separately for engine 1 and engine 2. However when I create a mouse macro for one side it automatically moves the other one too. (Mouse macro for left switch moves the right switch too). Any idea how to solve this one?

 

EDIT: Figured out the control for the right switch is working fine but control for the left switch still affects both switches.

Hello,

 

Why don't you set some keys in the CDU key programming page and then set these keys to your switches in fsuipc?

It would more reliable and easier to my opinion.

That's what I have done for both NGX and 777. For example, assign keycommands normally used for prop controls on the F1-F4 keys to the fuel ON/Cutoff functions.

Managed to solve it by just reprogamming it and works great now. THanks for the help..Another question I have if anyone had similar experience is if there is a way to program scroll buttons like the ones on Autopilot panel? My saitek X55 throttle does have a scroll wheel but I don't know whether it's possible to program it to autopilot to change altitude or speed. Any help would be appreciated?
