    radio assignment increments.

    Two questions in one day. I must be lost.

    Is there a way in/for Flight Sim that can control the increment increase for radio frequencies? when you assign functions

    For example Comm Freq:

    125.77 ... i've found out how to wire it every 2 places. So 125. 77, 125.79, 125.81...etc. on my panel

    Is there a way to set the frequency to go up in 2 also in FS, so for each 'connection' made the Flight Sim radio frequency will match the increments that it goes up in my panel so they will be syncronised as they should.


    So basically, is there a way to manipulate the steps of increase of radio frequency on a radio panel inputted to flight sim...

    Hope that made sense Just say if not.

    Re: radio assignment increments.

    FSUIPC should be able to handle that (check the advance user guide), but what I/O card are you using?
    Also, remember you would actually be increasing the frequency .025 but the .005 is never displayed.

    Geremy,

    The User's Guide is a pdf file which is part of the download of FSUIPC.

    Cheers,

    ah ok, was expecting there was another file which was the advanced.
    I'll take a look.

    Re: radio assignment increments.

    Ok, i've looked at the user guide and this seems to be what i'm looking for

    Accelerated value increments

    Built into FS (and FS2004 is not new for this) there are facilities for accelerated incrementing/decrementing. These allow things like the A/P speed value to go up in 10s rather than 1's, and so on. To operate this FS measures the time between successive controls arriving. If they are very close, it accelerates the change. As someone in MS confirmed, the theory is that if controls ("key events" in Gauge terms) come firing in really fast, it is most likely the same event. The caveat of this is there is some code running that is automatically sending key events fast enough, this can cause all increments to be accelerated, even wrongly. I discovered this happening on some complex panels back a year or two ago—panels were unbelievably sending things like "A/P Engage" 10 to 20 times per second! Very wasteful and performance damaging. They should check if the control is needed first and not send it if it would have no effect.

    Anyway, as a result of these problems with some panels, I added a facility in FSUIPC to "fix" control accelerations. Basically this disables the timer inside FS if the next control to arrive is different to the last one. This is an optional fix (see the Miscellaneous options section earlier), and it isn't available in Version 3 of FSUIPC unless you register. If you are using a panel which has this sort of problem, then really you should complain to the panel writers, as it is not good programming, and it is well within their capability to fix. If the panel is not being maintained, or you get no joy that way, then the only other answer is to pay for FSUIPC registration and use that FSUIPC facility.
    What do you think? Now just need to find out how to do it
