Hi Dave,

I want to assign a joystick button to change the transponder status.  Either toggle through the status options or immediately set it to "Active".

I have tried to assigned a button in FSUIPC through their interface but either I don't have the correct reference or P2A does not recognise the command.

Also, I have been unable to verify any change in state feedback to the sim via the FSUIPC logging window if I change state in P2A. ie from "Off" to "Active" or "Standby"

Does P2A provide Transponder Status feedback to P3D (FSX) or does it just keep the status internal for P2A ATC?

If it does provide feedback, can you please provide details? ie FSUIPC Offset and Parameter.

Otherwise, can you consider an update that either allows button/key assignment or feedback to the sim.

Best regards

Rob

P2A uses standard FSUIPC offsets to communicate to the SIM.  It does not have a mechanism for setting up joystick buttons or keyboard hot keys for anything except the few ones in the Btns tab of Config.

The thing to do is to set up your joystick button in the SIM.  When the SIM changes Transponder mode, it will be reflected in P2A.  Of course, if the aircraft you are using doesn't communicate that to FSUIPC, it won't get picked up.

Thanks for the reply Dave.

After further investigation, I am not sure P3D actually cares about the transponder status.

I can't seem to find an FSUIPC offset that works except if you use SquawkBox.

Best regards
