    FSCONV

    Will anyone help me with FSCONV. I am trying to make use of the interface to control lvld 767 overhead functions, but I feel like going in circles. I am not able to get the value of the offsets correctly. It would be very kind of you if you guide my step by step on how to get some function e.g autobrake (not the incremental control) to work using a six position rotary switch. Of course I have a registered version of FSUIPC and FS9 and lvld 767.

    thanks,,

    Re: FSCONV

    ok, since there is no answer unitl now, here is what I do, but I still can't get the assigned key to perform the function

    1- start fsconvigurator, put the atuobrake slider on 6, save then
    2- start fsconv
    3- start fs9 and load lvld767 panel, make sure the fsconv icon changes to connected
    4- open fsuipc module, go to buttons and switches tab
    5- check aircraft specific
    6- assign a button on the joystick board, make sure it is identified by fsuipc
    7- go to (control sent when button pressed) drop down menu and choose (Offset Word Set)
    8- enter the following offset for the autobrakes (X8B3A)
    9- enter the parameter value (6) for example
    10- close fsuipc and try the button
    11- nothing happens,

    I don't know where is the fault, is it in the value of the offset or parameter or the command when the button is pressed,
    any help is appreciated,

    Hi,
    This line is wrong:

    The offset for autobrakes 0x8B3A is 1 Byte, so you have to use Offset Byte Set

    regards,

    and 6 as parameter value is also wrong... you have to use a power of 2, (1, 2, 4, 8, 16, 32, 64 ...) because only 1 bit at a time may be set

    Re: FSCONV

    do I use "offset byte set" for all the functions

    Re: FSCONV

    What do you mean by "all the functions"? It depends on the syze of the offset and if you want to write an 8bit value.

    If you want to set only a bit in a byte you could also use "Offset Byte Setbits". For the autobrakes the Offset Byte Set is more appropriate because to clear the old bit and set a new bit in one go.
