[REPORTED] HMCS Power Switch Keybind


Recommended Posts

To be fair, you toggle the power once for the HMCS (right console panel by your hip) and then never have to touch the switch again. It would be a very long stretch to say that there is a key bind missing, probably better classified as jumping the gun really.

It's a switch in the cockpit that could and indeed should be able to be bound to an external switch for the cockpit builders, same as all the other switches. Even if it's a bit early, and thus “jumping the gun” it's nevertheless a missing keybind.

The HMCS power switch (ON/OFF/BAT) is visible on the right hand console, but it has no function in the sim currently. It's in the center (OFF) position and you cannot switch it to any of the two other position with the mouse. The sim software obviously "bypasses" the switch. So currently we can't even create a key bind with a mod. Hopefully, ED will make the switch functional in a future update.

Yes, it's working.

 

It won't work, if you copied any mod modifing/fixig cockpit switches functions (click integrity mods). It's a new switch, so any old mod won't have it mapped.

 

It have been added in last line of clickabledata.lua.

Oops!

You are right. Thanks, this really caused confusion.

 

So now I think I can create a binding for a simple ON/OFF command.

Keybinds for HMCS Power

 

I don't know whether ED will ever provide keybinds for the HMCS Power switch. So for the happiness of those who need this now, I created a set of keybinds that should cater for everyone's needs. The following lines of code need to be added to the "default.lua".

 

First, 3 basic commands for the use with pushbuttons:

{down = 3001, cockpit_device_id = 75, value_down = 1.0,    name = _('HMCS Power ON'), category = _('HMCS Power')},
{down = 3001, cockpit_device_id = 75, value_down = 0.0,    name = _('HMCS Power OFF'), category = _('HMCS Power')},
{down = 3001, cockpit_device_id = 75, value_down = -1.0,    name = _('HMCS Power BAT'), category = _('HMCS Power')},

If you only want the commands ON and OFF you can omit the 3rd line of course.

 

Next, commands for use with a maintained switch:

If you only want to implement the ON/OFF function, just add this line:

{down = 3001, up = 3001, cockpit_device_id = 75, value_down = 1.0,    value_up = 0.0, name = _('HMCS Power 2-Pos ON/OFF'), category = _('HMCS Power')},

If you want to command all 3 positions with a 3-position switch like the Flaps switch on the TM-WH throttle, also add this line for the BAT/OFF command:

{down = 3001, up = 3001, cockpit_device_id = 75, value_down = -1.0,    value_up = 0.0, name = _('HMCS Power 2-Pos BAT/OFF'), category = _('HMCS Power')},

This would probably be the choice of simpit builders.

 

Personally I cannot see why somebody would want to put these commands on a TM-WH throttle; but if you want to do that then the command lines must be added to the file "Throttle - HOTAS Warthog.lua" (not to the file with the suffix "diff.lua"!!!).

Enjoy!
