Default [RESOLVED] Control definitions bug APU

Hello

Bug:
Control definitions for "APU Stop Switch" and "Emergency Fuel Switch" and their covers are mixed up:

L-Shift + End
L-Ctr + End
R-Shift + F
R-Ctr + F

That means, if i assign a joystick button to the APU Stop Switch and press this button,
the Emergency Fuel switch is flipped and vice versa.

Feature/Change request:
I would be happy if the control type, especially for the switch covers, would reflect the real world-item type.
The switch covers just got a toggle-button in the control definition, but in real world they behave much more like a switch.
So it would be great to have (additional) separate "xyz cover open" and "xyz cover close" definitions.
Its important for cockpit builders and for joystick definitions (like the TM Warthog Engine and APU Operation switches).
Thank you !

Greetz, ezfox

Yes, exactly.
There are many more control definitions missing.
For example the Canopy Lock handle and the Master Arms switch (ARMS CB, front panel).

If you have the time, please list the missing control definitions and I will try to have them added.

OK, here we go (dont think its really complete but most should be in):
(I copy the names from the official manual where available)

No control definitions found for (most needed on top and bold):

«ARMS» CB (<- Master Arm switch...important !)
«PORT – STARB. BOTH» double-position switch (<- need to switch this while fighting, no time to crawl behind the stick and play with the mouse )
Emergency canopy jettison handle (front and rear)
Taxi-Landing lights control switch (front and rear)
Canopy lock handle (front and rear)
Remote command landing system (SDU) switch
«O-I» (Outer-inner NDB) switch (front and rear)
Fuel shut-off valve handle
Cockpit pressurization and ECS handle (front and rear)

De-Ice sensor (RIO-3) heating circuit check button
Emergency hydraulic system valves
«FLICKER – OFF – FIXED LIGHTING» navigation lights mode switch
«PITOT TUBE MAIN STBY» switch
«PITOT TUBE HEATING MAIN STAND-BY» lamp-buttons
«FLT RECORDER» switch
Fire Extinguish Button (and Cover) for Rear Cockpit
«MC. SYNCHR» magnetic heading alignment button

Control definitions available but dont work:
(with the mouse the knobs are functional, but not with key-combinations)

Kneeboard - next page ("previous page" is working -> "[" )
RV-5M (altitude setting knob & check button) (L-Shift + , / L-Shift + . / LAlt + LShift + R)
Attitude Directional Indicator (All knobs) (R-Shift + H / R-Ctrl + H / LWin + H)



Complete panels w/o control reference:

Signal flares control panel (contains also weapon configuration switches, important, especially as its located behind the Stick and very badly reachable in flight/fight)
Main CB panel (battery and engine switches -> important !)

RSBN-5S control panel
Cockpit temperature control panel with «HEAT-COLD-AUTO» switch and desired temperature dial
«ENGINE INDICAT. EMERG.» engine gauges emergency supply switch
Anti-icing system switch
«BRIGHTNESS 30% - 60% - 100%» navigation lights brightness switch
RKL-41 automatic direction finder control panel
AUXILIARY ELECTRICAL CB PANEL


Thank you for opening some tickets !

Those should work in 1.5.0.45655, please check:
  • Kneeboard - next page
  • RV-5M Radio Altimeter Test Button/Decision Height Knob
I reported (ticket #32314) as not working:
  • Artificial Horizon Zero Pitch Trim Knob, CW (RCTRL+H)
  • Artificial Horizon Zero Pitch Trim Knob, CCW (RSHIFT+H)
  • Artificial Horizon Cage (LWIN+H)

The kneeboard is still bugged - no change.
The RV-5M Radio Altimeter was fixed.
