    Ox5562 and Pmsounds inhibit

    Hi guys,

    I know nothing about offsets. I want to assign GPWS inhibits to keys on my
    keypad via FSUIPC. Can anyone talk me through the process.

    Kind regards.

    James

    Hi, James. I'm doing it now.

    1. Put something similar to the following in your FSUPIC configuration
    file:

    [Keys]
    0=112,8,x0D005562,x01

    (112,8 is unshifted F1. Switch it to the key you want per FSUPIC docs.
    x0D005562 signifies you want to toggle x5562, low bit with the key.)


    2. Then put something similar to the following in your pmSounds
    configuration file:

    [Inhibit]
    // Disables sounds according to bits set in offset 0x5562
    // name has to be immediately followed by #
    // you can also inhibit a 'Type' of soundfile (see following
    list)
    InhibitBit0=nglideslope#npullup#nsinkrate#nterrain#

    (After the InhibitBit0= is a list of the pmSounds you want to inhibit.)

    Hope that's what you wanted.

    Warm regards,
    David

    Thanks ever so much,

    I have the entry in FSUIPC but for some reason the entry in PM sounds is not
    working. Im running pmsounds on a client via widefs. Do I need to make an
    entry in wideserver and the client .ini

    Those entries are normally far more easily done inside FSUIPC Options whilst
    running FS -- the Buttons page controls drop-downs list "Offset ..."
    controls, and you can enter offsets and parameters there, on screen, when you
    select them.

    It is easy to make mistakes editing the INI file directly.

    No, the point of WideFS is to present the same interface, the same offsets,
    across all the computers running WideClient. That's its fundamental function
    and it doesn't need anything else to tell it to do it.

    Regards,

    Hi Pete,

    Thanks for your help.So is it "Offset Byte Togglebits" then offset =x5562
    parameter = x01?

    That should be sufficient on the FSUIPC side, yes ... I am sorry, I don't
    know the pmSystems end of this particular facility, so if it doesn't work you
    would need further help with that.

    You can always check things happening in FSUIPC offsets. FSUIPC itself has a
    monitoring facility on its Logging options page -- on the right-hand side.
    On this case the offset is 5562 and the type U8. You can set it to be
    logged, or displayed on screen ("advdisplay" option -- it does it to the
    'adventure' display line in FS, the same one used for ATIS etc).

    Additionally, the PM CDU has facilities for viewing and changing offsets.

    Regards

    Pete

    Thanks pete,

    CDU is showing its working alright so must be a typo on my end in PM sounds.

    Thanks again for your help.
