GNS and Emuteq Hardware

Recommended Posts

I just wanted to let everyone know, if they don't know, that the Emuteq Garsim GNS 530 works beautifully with this new version of the RXP GNS 530. Every bit as good as it worked in FSX/9. Great to have it back - haven't flown an airliner since the release!

because of favorable US $ to British Poundss this looks like a good buy. EMUTEQ.

 

But Pound is going up again

It wasn't cheap when I bought mine (AUD vs GBP), but it is a great purchase if you wish to invest the money. :wink:

Wow, that company makes some exceptional hardware interfaces that look like they are built extremely well (not your typical Saitek panel clunky feeling rotary encoders). Does anyone know if there are any North American re-sellers of the Emuteq Garsim GNS530 interface? I'll end up buying one either way, just wondering if there's a way to cut down on shipping costs to Canada...

Not that I know of, they ship only from the UK as far as I know.

OK Jean Luc, I'll give it a try :biggrin:

Instructions for Emuteq hardware:

 

 

1) Replace the 530_xxx entries with (NOT the 530_2 entries!):


530_CONTRAST_INC=win+y
530_CONTRAST_DEC=win+z
530_CONTRAST_RESET=
530_POW=win+s
530_COMFLIP=win+q
530_NAVFLIP=win+w
530_CDI=win+F9
530_OBS=win+v
530_MSG=win+F13
530_FPL=win+a
530_PROC=win+F2
530_NAV=win+c
530_DTO=win+F3
530_MNU=win+F4
530_CLR=win+F5
530_ENT=win+F14
530_RANGE_INC=win+h
530_RANGE_DEC=win+i
530_LKNOBO_L=win+j
530_LKNOBO_R=win+k
530_LKNOBI_L=win+F6
530_LKNOBI_R=win+F7
530_LKNOBPUSH=win+n
530_RKNOBO_L=win+o
530_RKNOBO_R=win+F8
530_RKNOBI_L=win+F10
530_RKNOBI_R=win+F12
530_RKNOBPUSH=win+F11
530_EXPORTFPL=
530_SWAPRADIOS=win+F15

2) In your <P3Dv4>\Modules folder, edit FSUIPC5.ini as you did in FSX by adding:

1=P1,12,K81,40     
2=P1,0,K83,40     
3=P1,1,K83,40     
4=P1,13,K87,40     
5=P1,2,K89,40     
6=P1,3,K90,40     
7=P1,7,K75,40     
8=P1,6,K74,40     
9=P1,5,K118,40     
10=P1,4,K117,40     
11=P1,14,K78,40     
12=P1,16,K120,40     
13=P1,17,K86,40     
14=P1,18,K124,40     
15=P1,19,K65,40     
16=P1,20,K67,40     
17=P1,21,K113,40     
18=P1,10,K119,40     
19=P1,11,K79,40     
20=P1,8,K123,40     
21=P1,9,K121,40     
22=P1,15,K122,40     
23=R1,27,K72,40     
24=R1,26,K73,40     
25=P1,25,K114,40     
26=P1,24,K115,40     
27=R1,23,K116,40     
28=P1,22,K125,40     
29=P1,29,K126,40

Note that the number following the 'P' and 'R' must correspond with the number the Emuteq is identifed with in the INI file:

e.g. mine is a 1:    

[JoyNames]
AutoAssignLetters=No
0=T.Flight Stick X
0.GUID={BF8B1130-EEF1-11E6-8001-444553540000}
1=GarSim 530
1.GUID={88E60050-9152-11E7-8001-444553540000}

3) Edit the panel config by adding in the correct section, e.g.:

gauge00=rxpGNS2!GNS_530_1, -28,-12,155,150

this is mine for the Realair Piston Duke

But this only works in a 32 bit environment and so not P3Dv4?

No, I have it working perfectly in P3Dv4 as per the method I posted

David,

Thanks a lot for the information. I have been doing quite a lot of searching before I found your post.  I had the RXP GNS530 v1 with the Emuteq GNS 530 and it worked fine.

I am going to switch to P3Dv4(1) and the RXP GNS530 v2 in the coming months so I wanted to get the FSUIPC/GNSini instructions for Win10/64 and the RXP GNS 530v2 and there you are!!!

One more question. What do you mean by your remark: 1) Replace the 530_xxx entries with (NOT the 530_2 entries!): the entries you posted are for 530_2 aren't they?

Thanks a lot,

Hans

Hi Hans

The 530_1 just identifies the key map to No 1 GNS unit in your panel.cfg. I guess if you specify the _2 in panel.cfg you can map to No.2.

Hope it works for you - patiently waiting for the GTN now!

I am using FSX and I updated GNS530 v2 to version 2.3.4. The keyboard shortcuts which are used with Emuteq hardware do not work any more. I checked the file RealityXP.GNS.ini with shortcut definitions and it seems good to me. I am also not sure where this INI file should be located. In the INI file is a remark that shoud be in "My Documents\Flight Simulator Files".

I copied it into all these folders:

  • c:\User\Danilo\Documents\Flight Simulator X Files
  • c:\Program Data\Reality XP\Common\Settings
  • c:\User\Danilo\Documents\Reality XP\GNS Simulation\FltSim

Unfortunately with no success.

Just to test I even reinstalled the old GNS530 v1 and everything worked as it should. The appropriate file RXPGNS.INI with shortcuts is located in the folder c:\Program Data\Reality XP\Common\Settings.

Am I doing something wrong or it is just a bug which appeared in a new version?

Thanks,

Danilo

Here is my file RealityXP.GNS.ini with keyboard shortcuts:

Hi, the correct location described p7 of the User's Manual is:

To change hotkeys, open the "My Documents\Reality XP\GNS Simulation\FltSim\RealityXP.GNS.ini" file with notepad. 

This might be a bug introduced in the latest version so we'll review this and keep you posted.

I don't know if this is any help, but I programmed the keystroke for the GNS "ENTER" button as CTRL+ALT+F9 in the RealityXP.GNS.ini file and within FSUIPC (which detects the button press OK). The following is an excerpt from the log file I asked FSUIPC to create:

68562 LogOptions changed, now 40000000 00000001
    70465 Button changed: bRef=0, Joy=1, Btn=22, Pressed
    70465 [Buttons] 6=P1,22,K120,26
    70465 SendKeyToFS(00030078=[alt+ctl+F9], KEYDOWN) ctr=0
    70465 Sending WM_KEYDOWN, Key=17 (Control) (Scan code 29), Ctr=6
    70465 Sending WM_KEYDOWN, Key=18 (Alt) (Scan code 56), Ctr=6
    70481 Sending WM_KEYDOWN, Key=120 (Scan code 67), Ctr=4
    70481 KEYDOWN: VK=17, Waiting=0, Repeat=N, Shifts=2
    70481 .. Key not programmed -- passed on to FS

Not sure if it gives any clues but it may be of some use.

There is a bug now identified with the keyboard shortcuts both in our GTN and GNS V2 for FltSim.

An update version is on its way today or tomorrow.

I had the same bug, not only the keyboard commands but also the native simulator gps commands are Not working, so it is impossible to control the GNS unit with hardware buttons at the moment. Hoping for the update to fix this issue.

Hi,

My situation is this: I have RXP GNS530 v1 and Emuteq GNS 530 hardware on a Win10/64 pc and I am switching from FSX to P3Dv4.1

I also have the Mindstar GNS 530 but that is a 32 bit version and up to now no 64bit version is for sale. I am willing to buy the RXP GNS 530 v2

The central question how do I get a working software(RXP GNSv2) and hardware (Emuteq GNS 530)combination?  The point is Emuteq doesn't answer my emails(any more) and only has a solution that works with Win 7. In Win10 their solution/instruction set triggers a number of Windows 10 hotkeys.

So I wonder if the feature of the RXP GNS 530v2  "Use Simulator GPS commands" is the solution. And if so is there a step by step description how to use it.

To be honest I am a simple end user and working with offsets , keyboard shortcuts and so on is a bid over my head. If Emuteq would give some support for Win10/64 and their hardware the problem wouldn't be there anymore.

My hpoes are on RXP!

Hans
