Setting Up the Jetmax TQ Buttons in FSUIPC

This section of the Sim-A Forum is for support issues.
Only a few Clear Rules Here:
1. No Rants. Rants will be deleted and the poster contacted. All focus here is to assist in the spreading of information to better assist all Sim-A users. Most of the people helping are not paid employees.
2. Be Polite. We want all Sim-A users to experience the fantastic elements that make Sim-A what it is. Being able to communicate here will allow the info to be the focus.
3. Time. We do not have someone on the Forum 24/7 so please allow members to jump in to help when needed.
4. Most important. This is not a "Issue" forum. If you feel there is an issue then please email support@sim-Avionics.com and Mark will review that. This is a commercial product and erroneous reports do harm.

Setting Up the Jetmax TQ Buttons in FSUIPC

Post by MarkHastings »

If you have the TQ on the FS computer and don't want to run a SYSController then you will need to assign the 'multifunction' codes via FSUIPC buttons and Switches.

In FSUIPC Buttons and Switches you would assign :
TOGA and A/T Disconnect
Control : OFFSET_WORD_SET
Offset : x53DB
Parameter : 567 (TOGA), 563 (A/T Disconnect)

Reversers
Button Pressed
Control : OFFSET_BYTE_SET
Offset : x5419 (Left Reverser), x5420 (Right Reverser)
Parameter : 1
Repeat While Held = ON
Button Released
Control : OFFSET_BYTE_SET
Offset : x5419 (Left Reverser), x5420 (Right Reverser)
Parameter : 0

Fuel Switches and Parkingbrake
Button Pressed
Control : OFFSET_BYTE_SET
Offset : x5452 (Left Fuel Cutoff), x5453 (Right Fuel Cutoff), x5418 (ParkingBrake)
Parameter : 1
Repeat While Held = ON
Button Released
Control : OFFSET_BYTE_SET
Offset : x5452 (Left Fuel Cutoff), x5453 (Right Fuel Cutoff), x5418 (ParkingBrake)
Parameter : 0

If you have a Jetmax Plus Licence then no further actions should be required.

If you have an SSTD+ or DSTD+ then you will need to configure a few items on the Sim-A Server.
  • Multifunction codes (53DB) - No action, these are always available.

    Goto the FSUIPC I/O tab (or edit the FSUIPC_IO.ini)
    Assign these offsets to the following [FSUIPC_INPUTS] section
    • ENGINE_L_FUEL_CONTROL_SWITCH=5452
      ENGINE_R_FUEL_CONTROL_SWITCH=5453
      PARKING_BRAKE=5418
      ENGINE_1_REVERSER=5419
      ENGINE_2_REVERSER=5420
    Save

    Goto the Server > Control Panel Tab
    • Use INPUT Offsets = Enable
      Process Switch Update on Offset Change Only = Disable
    Goto the Server > Flight Controls > Flight Controls Config 2
    • Ensure the Top Radiobuttons are selected.
      Assign via FSUIPC Axis / Jetmax TQ
      Assign via FSUIPC Buttons (Jetmax TQ)
Items on the Aircraft Details tab need to be saved manually via the menu, and are saved into the loaded aircraft config file.
All other settings are automatically saved in the SERVER.INI file when the Server is closed.
