[Resolved] How do I add new key assignments in Prepar3D v4?

Recommended Posts

I am trying to add some functionality v4 that FSUIPC provided me in v3, and I can't seem to figure out how to add new key assignments.  I am currently attempting to add new assignments to the standard.xml file in AppData\Roaming\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v4\Controls

In particular, I'm trying to add keys to toggle my beacon, taxi, and navigation lights.  I'm using the eventIDs from http://www.prepar3d.com/SDKv2/LearningCenter/utilities/variables/event_ids.html 


For example, I added this in my  <Name>KEYBOARD_MAIN.Native</Name> section






Upon loading P3D v4, that assignment gets removed.  Any thoughts?  Thanks.

Well, I don't know why I didn't try this before, but I just added those event IDs directly under the standard.xml's section for my CH Throttle Quadrant, and they work.  They don't show up in the Controls UI though, which is not a big deal since I only really wanted to use my lights through my throttle quadrant.  For some reason, I was thinking that I needed to first map the event IDs to the keyboard so that they would show up in the Controls UI.
