GPS_INNR_CW_1 issue, ALT key weirdness (resolved)

Recommended Posts

hi all, i'm back...

I'm having problems with the inner knobs - FSUIPC is registering COM_INNR_CCW_1/CW_1 and GPS_INNR_CCW_1/CW_1 with the correct key combinations, but they do not seem to be having an effect in RXP.  The rest of the buttons seem to be both registered and functioning correctly.

This may be related - I see that the computer is picking up and interpreting the "alt" key presses, and flashing through the menu. 

Is this as simple as replacing "alt" with something else in the mappings?

P3Dv4.4

Thanks for looking,

Anthony

Hi,

it is hard to say without the full command shortcut?

For sure, some combinations won't work on Windows (think something like ALT+F4).

You may just try with different 'modifiers' like = CTRL+SHIFT+ALT+...

Order won't matter, but I suspect the problem lies in the command names: you are using v1.0 command names.

Here is the default (empty) RXP GNS V2 keyboard shortcuts file:

@RXP thank you for letting me know, I have updated my .ini with the modern values.  However, my problem remained.

What I stumbled on - I was searching for other key combos that were available, and noticed that if I did TAB+SHIFT+F it produced the result expected of "ALT+SHIFT+F", which I thought was weird (any ideas?). 

As a solution, I have just remapped all my ALT+ to TAB+ in RXP ini and FSUIPC ini, and looks like things are functioning as expected, and with the added benefit of not triggering the ALT menu action.

@DavidPI will tag you in at this time in case someone else runs into this issue, you will see what I used as a solution.

Thank you for your assistance Jean-Luc, and your patience.

caution: TAB is key, F is a key, SHIFT is a modifier: the complete combination should have zero to any modifier + one key only.

Therefore it should be SHIFT+F or SHIFT+TAB only.

Just a little late entering the conversation ...

That's strange - I have attached the contents of my RealityXP.GNS.ini and the header indicates it is V2, but the commands are still the v1 type

On a little thread drift, I use the A2A Bonanza which has the GNS530 as _2 - I am trying to get the key mapping right and experimented with the _2 combinations above but they don't work.

I had to do something similar when I came up with the contents of the tutorial - in some cases I had to use trial and error to find key combinations that did not cause any conflicts. It was quite odd as I found similar issues until I found a set that worked for me. That's why you will see the odd "win+ " entries - if they worked, I left them in place.

If you have any suggestions to update the tutorial, let me know.

@Conair_Anthony @DavidP sorry for misleading you.

I've re-edited the content in my post above with the correction (there is no RXP_GNS_ prefix expected)
