A321 VC clickspot issue

Recommended Posts

I cannot change the 100's freq part for a NAVAID.... ie, 108.70, the knob in the A321 VC doesn't have any clickspots for the 108 part.Anyone else have this issue? I'm using Acceleration

I'm using AccelerationIt works for me. The click spots are right next to each other without any noticable seperation. Use the mouse wheel.However, the autopilot doesn't work consistantly for me. I am only using SP1.

>yeah I think it's another SP2 bug.... *sigh*>>I do remember it working with RTM, can't remember SP1 though>>No, there were issues with the sizeorientation of the clickspotsin RTM and SP1 as well.Early on I went in and edited all the clickspots for the radioand autopilot contraols to make them easier to use from the VCwhile looking about with TrackIR.I enlarged all of them and also changed orientation from the"inner ring, outter ring" setup to either side by side or topand bootom clickspots for a particular control. In some cases i moved the spots to the numerical display where it made sense to do so. Paul

Hi Paul, How did you go about editing the VC clickspots? I am interested in making some changes for the Lear 45, particularily the AP speed hold as it continually wants to switch to Mach (vice versa) when simply trying to change the speed value. I've extracted the the autopilot xml but need some guidance from that point. Thanks.Regards, Kendall#1: E6750@3.2GHZ/Coolermaster HyperTX2 Gigabyte P35-DS3L 4GB Crucial Ballistix Tracers PC6400 Seagate 250GB 7200.10 SATA2 Gigabyte X800XT -Cat 6.12's CH Yoke/Pedals/Saitek Throttle Dual Monitor: Dell 2405/1905 #2: Dell 8400 3.2 H.T. 3GB PC4200 Diamond Xtreme/Logitech X-530's

HI, I have his Lear mods posted in the library and is execellent, but unfortunately doesn't address clickspot issues. I"ll have to play around with the xml file and see what I can do. I saw a post somewhere about 3 months ago with some guidance, but now that I have some time, I can't locate it....... ThanksRegards, Kendall

Thanks.>>>Regards, KendallLooking at my Lear 45 it appears that I didn't make any changes inthe autopilot area but here's the applicable code snippet: 322.000,40.00010,32DownArrow-Code removed for clarity - 344.000,40.00010,32UpArrow-Code removed for clarity - The parameters you want to adjust are the Position and SIze variables. 322.000,40.00010,32Values are the X ( horizontal ) and Y ( vertical ) positions or sizes.What I do often is open the applicable background bitmap in paintShop Proand use the cursor position X,Y values in that application for estimating where to move things or how to adjust the size.In the above case the Increment and Decrement areas arIAS-MAch "button"area ( not a good idea for VC use, IMO ) 333.000,43.00011,26The Decrement area starts at X=322 and ends at X=332.IAS-Mach starts at X=333 and ends at 344Increment starts at X=344 and ends at 355.These are all "side by side" in an area Y=40 high.I would raise the Y start to 30 from 40 and the Y size from40 to 60, then position the Dec/Inc side by side with a width of X=15 each and Y=40. I would then place the IAS-Mach BELOW bothof these areas starting at Y=71 and size Y=19 with a width ofX=30.You would then wind up with:|DEC|INC||IAS-MAC|The new area is X=30 by Y=60 in size but you could increase thatif you so desire. Just be sure you don't impinge on adjacent controlmouse areas. That's where working with the background BMP image fora reference comes in handy.322.000,30.00015,40338.000,30.00015,40322.000,71.00030,19Also, place the de-cab'd folder ( Lear_45_XML ) in the panel folder.When making changes and testing with FSX running, just have a keyassigned to "Reload Aircraft" or whatever it;s called in the controlsmenu. Then you can test your changes as you make them.You can leave the original Lear_45_XML.cab file wherever it is onyour system as FSX will use the folder in the panel folder before looking for a "cab" file.As I mentioned in my initial post I often move the clickspots up to the numeric readout area, which is usally much larger thanthe "knobs" and place the INC-DEC areas there.Hope this helps you get started :) Paul

I'm using AccelerationHere is the modified XML code for the radio tune "inner" and "outer"ring knobs for the A321 that I use.Only attempt the changes if youi know how to "de-cab" the gauge fileand edit XML code.I repositioned the various INCDEC areas and changed their sizesto make tham easier to use in the VC.//--------------------------------------------------------------- 140.000,15.00085,900.000,46.00042,45DownArrowTrue//--------------------------------------------------------------- 43.000,46.00042,45DownArrowTrue//--------------------------------------------------------------- 43.000,0.00042,45UpArrowTrue//--------------------------------------------------------------- 0.000,0.00042,45UpArrowTrue//---------------------------------------------------------------Thie code starts at around line 665 in the original popup_radio.xml file.
