steering lock assignment

Recommended Posts

Hi-

I'm trying to assign the steering lock button to a key or button.

Where are these located?

G1000_MFD_SOFTKEY2 = ON
G1000_MFD_SOFTKEY3 = OFF

You make the assignments under the FSX SETTINGS-CONTROLS tab as shown below. In this example, the function keys F6 and F7 have been assigned to turn the steering on and off (I assume this is the Lear35 you are asking about). You can assign buttons instead of keys in the same way.

FSW has written XML code so that when the respective G1000 soft keys are are 'activated' the corresponding action (in this case turning the Lear35 steering on and off) will happen. The assumption here is that you will not be using these specific G1000 soft keys for anything else in the Lear 35. If you have a registered version of FSUIPC, then you can make these assignments aircraft specific which allows the G1000 softkeys to be used for other things in other aircraft.

Hi Al-

Thanks for this. I'm using P3D 4.2 but am assuming the control assignment is the same.

Thanks!

Mark,

I don't have P3D, but I think you are correct.

Here is a suggestion that improved my life. If you have FSUIPC (paid edition I think) you can have your brake button send G1000_MFD_SOFTKEY2 on release. That way when you are on the ground. at less than 45 knots when you use your brakes you can automatically turn on nose wheel steering.
