View Full Version : Gauge button assignment problem?

10-04-2009, 03:12 PM
Is there any way to find out what key is pressed when you click on a button on a Gauge with the mouse ( a start/stop button on a chronometer )? It is not listed in fs2004 controls by pete dawson and nor can I find it in fs2004 default fs button assignmentlist. I have tried to do a mouse macro in fsuipc but that does not work.
I want to start and stop the chronometer with a button on my panel. I use a 2120 puls generator by desktop aviator.

Ay ideas how to solve this?

Best regards

Try FSUIPC event logging and see if it is using a specific offset and then map the offset to your button.

I think you need to do the detailed log (to show the gauges). But I don't want to waste your time, I would post this at Peter's support forum http://forums.simflight.com/viewforum.php?f=54

Detailed log? I think I had all the buttons filled in. Thanks for the help and I will try to post it at petes forum.

You need to add a few lines in your FSUIPC.ini under the General section to get the detailed logs. They are huge files, so it is not something you do all the time.
