Thread: offsets for SB3 push-to-talks

offsets for SB3 push-to-talks
I've been succesfully using the built-in SB3 PTT function in FSUIPC. However, we now want to hook-up our private-voice-comms (PVT) to a different button which is hooked up to an open-cockpits master card (i.e. not a joystick button). Can't find the offsets for SB3-PTT and SB3-PVT anywhere ... can anybody help out with this?

Can't recall right now since I'm at work for a couple of days. But one option is to use offset 3110 length4 and control number 1006 wich is for the KeySend command, and then use the parameters in wideclient.ini

There's a reference in the "FSUIPC for advanced users.pdf"
control number 1068 for pvt on
and control number 1069 for pvt off.
Edit: Under the "Additional controls added by fsuipc" there's all the extra fs controls that can be used with offset 3110.
PS. Let me know if you kneed an example of the sioc code.

Thanks for that. Will I still need to set parameters in wideclient with those - or just set 1068, 1069?
If you can send the SIOC code too that would be excellent.

No you don't need to enter anything in wide client. Here's the code (from memory)
Var 0001, name PVT, Link FSUIPC_OUT, Offset $3110, Length 4
Var 0002, name PVT_BUTTON, Link IOCARD_SW, Input 21
IF &PVT_BUTTON = 1
&PVT = 1068
&PVT = 1069

Thanks very much for the code - I'll give it a try

did you try it - did it work?
I have also drilled two push-to-talk buttons into my yoke-column too, and like to get them to work with the SB3 "PTT On" and "PTT Off" funktion! So: any hints about the appropriate FSUIPC offsets appreciated!
Cheers from the other side of the globe ...

thanks for your quick reply!
No, my yoke column (Cockpitsonic) is connected via an USB/Interface to a client computer. This computer is part of a VPN network, where the complete Project Magenta software, FS2004 and SB3 is running. The question is, how to emulate the signal from the button as push-to-talk for SB3 via FSUIPC.
