Lua script

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I am new to this forum so please apologize if I use the Topic.

Currently I am a user of XPlane11 but I would like to switch to P3D due to the better planes and so on...

So I've build a small button box for flight sim and wrote a Fly with Lua assignment script so I can use all my buttons, switches, rotary encoders properly.

I am wondering if it is possible to write a similar script for P3D?

Does someone have some experience with it?

 

I really appreciate any help.

Thanks in advance!

Grizzly

 

The script shall have some features like shown below:

        
dataref("heading", "the_dataref_of_heading", "writeable")        
function do_hdg_up()
i = 1
   if button(1781then
    i = 10
   end
heading = heading + i
end
create_command("script/doHeading"heading up","do_hdg_up()""""")
set_button_assignment(1783"script/doHeading")

What's wrong with good old FSUIPC and macros ?

And with Arduino there is Mobiflight: https://www.mobiflight.com/en/index.html

I already have a "joystick" board so I won't switch to an Arduino at the moment unless it is necessary

Now I have an another question because I have see that FSUIPC needs a license. So is there also a free method to do my plans?

Thanks for the help

There is a free basic version of FSUIPC, but it has limited capability. Not sure if it will do macros, as I have never used it, only the paid full version.
