LVar control listing
Here is the list of LVar controls for cockpit builders and advanced users to aid in the mapping of the custom controls;

Very Cool,

Thanks Lewis. This will come in handy. I had to do a lot of searching to set controls for the T6. Now I won't have to search anymore.

Thanks Lewis - this'll come in handy. :) I've already experimented a little bit with the T-6 L:Vars and thought I'd add another one which is handy but not listed on the linked PDF:

(L:handprop,bool) - can be used to turn the prop by hand without having to open the shift + 3 menu. I use it with a key press (SET to 1 on press and SET to 0 on release).

Cheers,
Nick

Hello
I don't really understand how to use theses datas . I use the normal interface of FSUIPC and the A2A input configurator ; I set ,for example , left and right fuel selector with FSUIPC but I can't set "Fuel selector off", it don't work . Idem for the manual fuel pump , only available by left clicking with the mouse . An A2A input configurator more complete will be appreciated :wink: This T-6 is really my favorite A2A aircraft !

Here are the entries from my INI file for the functions you mention above.

I use 3 switches to select the desired Fuel Select State and one for the Fuel Pump.
Switches 14, 15, 16 and 18 on my Saitek Throttle Quad ID'd AS Controller 'D'


30=PD,14,CM23:50,2 ;// LEFT WING FUEL TANK SELECT -{Macro A2A_T6: L:FSelT6State set}-
31=PD,15,CM23:51,0 ;// MANUAL FUEL PUMP -{Macro A2A_T6: L:FuelPumpManualLever tgl}-
32=PD,16,CM23:50,1 ;// RIGHT WING FUEL TANK SELECT -{Macro A2A_T6: L:FSelT6State set}-
34=PD,18,CM23:50,0 ;// FUEL TANK SELECT OFF -{Macro A2A_T6: L:FSelT6State set}-

From my T-6 MCRO file

50=L:FSelT6State=SET
51=L:FuelPumpManualLever=TOGGLE

What are MCRO files ? FSUIPC files ? I understand that standard FSUIPC interface is not enough for some functions .

An MCRO file defines the L:Vars for an aircraft so that FSUIPC 'knows' about them
and you can use the FSUIPC drop-down menus to assign them to buttons, keys, etc.

A simple, fast 'fix for the case of the 'OFF' and the Fuel Pump would be to crates
a test file in notepad with the entries below and then save it to your 'Modules' folder
with the name 'A2A_T-6.MCRO'. The extension must be 'MCRO' when saved.

[MACROS]
1=L:FSelT6State=SET

FSUIPC willl assign a number to that file to be used when editing the INI file entries
by hand....in my case it is '23' as seen in my list as 'CM23'.

For your single change you can use the Menu to change the assignment

12=P0,22,C65955,0 -{FUEL_SELECTOR_OFF}-

TO this. IF the MCRO file is number 1 under the INI heading [MacroFiles]

12=P0,22,CM1:1,0 -{FUEL_SELECTOR_OFF}-

To use the drop-down menu when in the T-6 free flight simply press the
desired button/switch (Profile Specific), set 'Select for FS control' and then look down the list of controls
until you find 'A2A T-6:L:FSelT6State' and select that entry with a Parameter of '0' the hit 'OK'.

That should result in the INI entry I showed here for Line 12.

Paul

What are MCRO files ? FSUIPC files ? I understand that standard FSUIPC interface is not enough for some functions .


Just to show you what my MCRO file looks like as I assign a whole lot of the functions to
my throttle-quads switches using 'conditional assinments' to assign multiple functions to
each of my available buttons/switches. ( I don't use all of them but I could. They all show
up as assignable in the Drop-Down menu. )
