Unassigned Keys not used by MSFSX (Aces team?)

Recommended Posts

Does Aces have or could they make available, a list of unassigned keyboard keys for MSFSX/MSFS9 that can be used by other programs?

Here are all the key commands, sorted alphabetically. It doesn't look like there are many unassigned. Hope this helps.Cheers,Bob***************************************1..........................SELECT_12..........................SELECT_23..........................SELECT_34..........................SELECT_4A..........................NEXT_SUB_VIEWB..........................BAROMETRICBackspace..................ZOOM_1XC..........................COM_RADIOCaps_Lock..................MP_VOICE_CAPTURE_START/STOPCTRL+1.....................RADIO_VOR1_IDENT_TOGGLECTRL+2.....................RADIO_VOR2_IDENT_TOGGLECTRL+3.....................MARKER_SOUND_TOGGLECTRL+4.....................RADIO_DME1_IDENT_TOGGLECTRL+5.....................RADIO_ADF_IDENT_TOGGLECTRL+A.....................AP_APR_HOLDCTRL+B.....................AP_BC_HOLDCTRL+Backspace.............EYEPOINT_FORWARDCTRL+C.....................EXITCTRL+D.....................YAW_DAMPER_TOGGLECTRL+E.....................ENGINE_AUTO_STARTCTRL+Enter.................EYEPOINT_BACKCTRL+F.....................TOGGLE_FLIGHT_DIRECTORCTRL+F1....................PROP_PITCH_HICTRL+F2....................PROP_PITCH_DECRCTRL+F24...................RUDDER_TRIM_RIGHTCTRL+F3....................PROP_PITCH_INCR_SMALLCTRL+F4....................PROP_PITCH_LOCTRL+G.....................GEAR_PUMPCTRL+H.....................AP_HDG_HOLDCTRL+J.....................TOGGLE_JETWAYCTRL+K.....................JOYSTICK_CALIBRATECTRL+L.....................LANDING_LIGHTS_TOGGLECTRL+M.....................AP_MACH_HOLDCTRL+N.....................AP_NAV1_HOLDCTRL+Num_0.................RUDDER_TRIM_LEFTCTRL+Num_1.................VIEW_REAR_LEFT_UPCTRL+Num_2.................VIEW_REAR_UPCTRL+Num_3.................VIEW_REAR_RIGHT_UPCTRL+Num_4.................AILERON_TRIM_LEFTCTRL+Num_5.................VIEW_UPCTRL+Num_6.................AILERON_TRIM_RIGHTCTRL+Num_7.................VIEW_FORWARD_LEFT_UPCTRL+Num_8.................VIEW_FORWARD_UPCTRL+Num_9.................VIEW_FORWARD_RIGHT_UPCTRL+O.....................AP_LOC_HOLDCTRL+P.....................MP_PAUSE_SESSIONCTRL+Q.....................VIEW_ALWAYS_PAN_DOWNCTRL+R.....................AP_AIRSPEED_HOLDCTRL+S.....................VIEW_PREVIOUS_TOGGLECTRL+Scroll_Lock...........ABORT.....CTRL+SHIFT+9...............CENTER_NT361_CHECKCTRL+SHIFT+A...............ADFCTRL+SHIFT+Backspace.......EYEPOINT_LEFTCTRL+SHIFT+C...............DEC_COWL_FLAPSCTRL+SHIFT+D...............FUEL_DUMP_TOGGLECTRL+SHIFT+Enter...........EYEPOINT_RIGHTCTRL+SHIFT+F...............MP_PLAYER_FOLLOWCTRL+SHIFT+F1..............MIXTURE_LEANCTRL+SHIFT+F2..............MIXTURE_DECRCTRL+SHIFT+F3..............MIXTURE_INCR_SMALLCTRL+SHIFT+F4..............MIXTURE_RICHCTRL+SHIFT+G...............AUTO_THROTTLE_TO_GACTRL+SHIFT+H...............HEADING_BUG_SELECTCTRL+SHIFT+I...............YAXIS_INVERT_TOGGLECTRL+SHIFT+L...............TOGGLE_AIRCRAFT_LABELSCTRL+SHIFT+Num_2...........LANDING_LIGHT_DOWNCTRL+SHIFT+Num_4...........LANDING_LIGHT_LEFTCTRL+SHIFT+Num_5...........LANDING_LIGHT_HOMECTRL+SHIFT+Num_6...........LANDING_LIGHT_RIGHTCTRL+SHIFT+Num_8...........LANDING_LIGHT_UPCTRL+SHIFT+O...............MP_PLAYER_CYCLECTRL+SHIFT+Q...............VIEW_ALWAYS_PAN_UPCTRL+SHIFT+R...............AIRSPEED_BUG_SELECTCTRL+SHIFT+T...............VIEW_PANEL_ALPHA_SELECTCTRL+SHIFT+Tab.............PREV_VIEWCTRL+SHIFT+U...............AUTORUDDER_TOGGLECTRL+SHIFT+V...............INC_COWL_FLAPSCTRL+SHIFT+VK_RBRACKET.....MP_CHATCTRL+SHIFT+VK_SLASH........INVOKE_HELPCTRL+SHIFT+X...............VIRTUAL_COPILOT_TOGGLECTRL+SHIFT+Y...............TOW_PLANE_REQUESTCTRL+SHIFT+Z...............ALTITUDE_BUG_SELECTCTRL+Space.................EYEPOINT_RESETCTRL+T.....................AP_ATT_HOLDCTRL+Tab...................NEXT_VIEWCTRL+V.....................AP_WING_LEVELERCTRL+VK_LBRACKET...........SCRIPT_EVENT_1CTRL+VK_MINUS..............VIEW_CHASE_DISTANCE_SUBCTRL+VK_PERIOD.............PARKING_BRAKESCTRL+VK_PLUS...............VIEW_CHASE_DISTANCE_ADDCTRL+VK_RBRACKET...........SCRIPT_EVENT_2CTRL+VK_SEMICOLON..........SITUATION_RESETCTRL+VK_SLASH..............INVOKE_HELPCTRL+VK_TILDE..............SIMUI_WINDOW_HIDESHOWCTRL+W.....................TOGGLE_WATER_RUDDERCTRL+X.....................VIRTUAL_COPILOT_ACTIONCTRL+Y.....................MOUSE_AS_YOKE_TOGGLECTRL+Z.....................AP_ALT_HOLDD..........................HEADING_GYRO_SETE..........................ENGINEEnter......................MP_ACTIVATE_CHATEsc........................USER_INTERRUPTF..........................DMEF1.........................THROTTLE_CUTF10........................VIEW_CAMERA_SELECT_2F11........................VIEW_CAMERA_SELECT_3F12........................VIEW_CAMERA_SELECT_4F2.........................THROTTLE_DECRF24........................RUDDER_RIGHTF3.........................THROTTLE_INCR_SMALLF4.........................THROTTLE_FULLF5.........................FLAPS_UPF6.........................FLAPS_DECRF7.........................FLAPS_INCRF8.........................FLAPS_DOWNF9.........................VIEW_CAMERA_SELECT_1G..........................GEAR_TOGGLEH.......................

Bob,Thanks a'lot.That will be a big help just having all the keys in sorted order.How did you do that!I guess some that are seldom or never used could be reassigned or deleted if another program needs the same one.If ACES already had a list of "unassigned" then when we needed one we could just select one we like rather than guessing weather or not it is a combination that MSFSX (or FS9) would accept.Like, key combos using the left and right "windows" key on the keyboard in combo with other keys.Then we would have many free keys that could be used ... if not used by other installed aircraft / utility programs.

Hi Vaughn,All the key commands are in the standard.xml file located here:"C:Documents and SettingsYOURUSERNAMEApplication DataMicrosoftFSXControlsStandard.xml"I sorted them in my word processor and used the "find-and replace" command (CTRL+H) and macros to delete all the junk.Just something to keep a bored, retired old geezer busy!Hang in there!

Bob, Great job. Wish I knew how to do macros etc! Your little (huge) word processing work of art will be used by vast numbers of simmer's, I am sure of that!Is SHFT = and SHFT - and SHFT , (comma) no longer used in standard FSX assignments? Thought they were anyway in FS9.Just started looking down your list for key I can use .. it will take a while.>Hi Vaughn,>>All the key commands are in the standard.xml file located>here:>>"C:Documents and SettingsYOURUSERNAMEApplication>DataMicrosoftFSXControlsStandard.xml">>I sorted them in my word processor and used the "find-and>replace" command (CTRL+H) and macros to delete all the junk.>Just something to keep a bored, retired old geezer busy!>>Hang in there!

Frankly, I hadn't noticed - maybe someone else knows.LOL - I can't remember more than 5 or 6 anyway so it doesn't matter to me! I bet the guys who wrote them don't know them all either!Take care, Bob

OK,ThanksI seen them on an old list. I think it best if I just delete that old stuff. Start out fresh here.I am going to read up on those macros. Very powerful stuff to sort all that.Have a g'day
