    SIOC script for MainPanel DU Selector help..?

    ok, so if someone can help me i came up with something like that and... it does NOTHING !

    PHP Code:
     Var 0001 Link IOCARD_SW DEVICE 4 Input 1 Type I
     
    {
        
    v0007 CHANGEBIT 0 v0001
     
    }

      Var 
    0002 Link IOCARD_SW DEVICE 4 Input 2 Type I
     
    {
        
    v0007 CHANGEBIT 1 v0002
     
    }
     
     
      Var 
    0003 Link IOCARD_SW DEVICE 4 Input 3 Type I
     
    {
        
    v0007 CHANGEBIT 2 v0003
     
    }
     
     
      Var 
    0004 Link IOCARD_SW DEVICE 4 Input 7 Type I
     
    {
        
    v0007 CHANGEBIT 3 v0004
     
    }
     
     
      Var 
    0005 Link IOCARD_SW DEVICE 4 Input 4 Type I
     
    {
        
    v0007 CHANGEBIT 4 v0005
     
    }
     
    Var 
    0007Link FSUIPC_OUTOffset $654CLength 2     // $654C - MainPanelDUSel 
    The switch appears to be connected correctly all works in basic switch/card testing but nothing changes when in FSX
    This script is meant to change MainPanelDu on PMDG737NGX in FSX
    I kinda based it on EFIS script that I have similar things are written for APP/VOR/MAP/PLN selector and it does work
    Offset taken from offset document in FSUIPC documents for PMDG737NGX
    then I changed the code somewhat after reading NICO KAAN website and based the script no landing light switch... still nothing.

    FROM EFIS SCRIPT
    PHP Code:
    Var 0119name APP_ELink IOCARD_SWDevice 1Input 9Type I
    {
      
    V0094 CHANGEBIT 0 ,&APP_E     // toggle APP
    }

    Var 
    0120name VOR_ELink IOCARD_SWDevice 1Input 10Type I
    {
      
    V0094 CHANGEBIT 1 ,&VOR_E     // toggle VOR

    FROM NICO KAAN for landing light switch kinda the same i guess 8 pos rotary switch is like 8 on/off switches just ALWAYS only ONE is ON

    PHP Code:
     Var 1 Link IOCARD_SW Input 50 Type I
     
    {
        
    v2 CHANGEBIT 2 v1 
     
    }

     Var 
    2 Link FSUIPC_OUT Offset $0D0C Length 2 
    IDK any help is appreciated.

    Re: SIOC script for MainPanel DU Selector help..?

    I believe the offsets from the FSUIPC document are read-only offsets.

    You need to have SIOC send the buttons as virtual buttons to FSUIPC, then set the control code in FSUIPC to activate the switch in FSX.

    Re: SIOC script for MainPanel DU Selector help..?

    Something like this:


    Code:
    Var 1 Link IOCARD_SW device 1 Input 55 Type I
    {
    &FO_JoyStick64 = CHANGEBIT 0 v1 // toggle button 0 of joystick 64
    }
    
    Var 3 Link IOCARD_SW device 1 Input 56 Type I
    {
    &FO_JoyStick64 = CHANGEBIT 1 v3 // toggle button 1 of joystick 64
    }
    
    Var 4 Link IOCARD_SW device 1 Input 57 Type I
    {
    &FO_JoyStick64 = CHANGEBIT 2 v4 // toggle button 2 of joystick 64
    }
    
    Var 5 Link IOCARD_SW device 1 Input 58 Type I
    {
    &FO_JoyStick64 = CHANGEBIT 3 v5 // toggle button 3 of joystick 64
    }
    
    Var 6 Link IOCARD_SW device 1 Input 59 Type I
    {
    &FO_JoyStick64 = CHANGEBIT 4 v6 // toggle button 4 of joystick 64 
    
    Var 2 name FO_JoyStick64 Link FSUIPC_OUT Offset $3340 Length 4
    Then set these custom control codes in FSUIPC:

    Button 0 Custom Control 69967 Parameter 0
    Button 1 Custom Control 69967 Parameter 1
    Button 2 Custom Control 69967 Parameter 2
    Button 3 Custom Control 69967 Parameter 3
    Button 4 Custom Control 69967 Parameter 4

    arg, why won't it just post my code as I paste it.

    EDIT: Finally, there we go. Just change the device/input numbers for your switches.

    While you might be able to do it all via SIOC, I find using virtual joystick buttons a *lot* simpler to setup.

    Really, though. For switches like this you might wanna just get a joystick controller and skip SIOC completely. Just use FSUIPC and NGX control codes.

    Re: SIOC script for MainPanel DU Selector help..?

    You are a Genius !!!

    It works !

    Few questions
    well just ONE really after reading some more stuff



    • FO_JoyStick64 is this just a name you made up? could it be CP_JoyStick1 or whatever else I am guessing ## 64 might have some significance...? maybe...?



    Ok i red a bit could it be any number from 64 to 73... or does FSUIPC just assign it a number based of "NAME" "Variable" that we declared in this case "FO_JoyStick64" but we could have said "john" and FSUIPC would just say #64 then we added "mike" and since FSUIPC already sees there is "john" so FSUIPC gives "mike" #65
    Sorry to bug you just trying to kinda understand the philosophy behind it.




    • Custom Control 69967 where did this number come from...? Again red some more 69632+335 (from you site as well custom controls for PMDG) so next switch i use for LowerDU Captain side will be 69632+336=69668 (just happens to be next in sequence)

    #define EVT_DSP_CPT_BELOW_GS_INHIBIT_SWITCH (THIRD_PARTY_EVENT_ID_MIN + 327) // CAPT Side BELOW GS INHIBIT Pushbutton
    #define EVT_DSP_CPT_MAIN_DU_SELECTOR (THIRD_PARTY_EVENT_ID_MIN + 335) // CAPT side MAIN PANEL DISPLAY UNITS (MAIN PANEL DUs) Selector
    #define EVT_DSP_CPT_LOWER_DU_SELECTOR (THIRD_PARTY_EVENT_ID_MIN + 336) // CAPT side LOWER DISPLAY UNIT (LOWER DU) Selector
    OK I guess I answer this myself good I'm getting somewhere


    • Var 2 name FO_JoyStick64 Link FSUIPC_OUT Offset $3340 Length 4 I did get this one reading some docs on you site so i kinda understand it. So it will be same offset for all that i program as joystick buttons.


    Really, though. For switches like this you might wanna just get a joystick controller and skip SIOC completely. Just use FSUIPC and NGX control codes.
    live and learn, live and learn.. oh boy.. well for now i got the master card so i go with this for the time being, but i just might look into some other options later on, by the controller card do you mean something like BU0836?

    Thanks for your help, I will try to expand the code to other switches add the lower DU selector see what happens.. if anything lol,
