[FIXED] Cannot change APKWS Laser Code from Cold Start


Recommended Posts

Currently it is not possible to change the APKWS Laser Code.  Even with the engine off cold start, the 1xxx values don't change.  See testcase below:

 

Testcase:

  1. Launch Instant Action Cold and Dark
  2. Bring up Kneeboard (Right Shift + K)
  3. Try changing APKWS Laser Code (LS + LA + 1/2/3)
  • Expected: 1xxx should change
  • Actual: No changes

so to fix the alphabet rocket lasercode keybinding:

go to:
dcs directory -> mods -> aircraft -> av8b -> input -> av8b

and then either or both for:
keyboard -> default.lua
open with Notepad++ or any other IDE
add pretty much at the end of the document in section Ground Adjustment (Kneeboard)

    {combos = {{key = '1', reformers = {'LShift','LAlt'}}},    down = iCommandPlaneCircuitBreaker_31,    value_down = 1,    name = _('Change APKWS Lasercode First Digit'),                            category = {_('Ground Adjustments')}},
    {combos = {{key = '2', reformers = {'LShift','LAlt'}}},    down = iCommandPlaneCircuitBreaker_32,    value_down = 1,    name = _('Change APKWS Lasercode Second Digit'),                        category = {_('Ground Adjustments')}},
    {combos = {{key = '3', reformers = {'LShift','LAlt'}}},    down = iCommandPlaneCircuitBreaker_33,    value_down = 1,    name = _('Change APKWS Lasercode Third Digit'),                            category = {_('Ground Adjustments')}},


and if you so want in:
joystick -> default.lua

add in same segment

 

    {down = iCommandPlaneCircuitBreaker_31,        value_down = 1,    name = _('Change APKWS Lasercode First Digit'),                            category = {_('Ground Adjustments')}},
    {down = iCommandPlaneCircuitBreaker_32,        value_down = 1,    name = _('Change APKWS Lasercode Second Digit'),                        category = {_('Ground Adjustments')}},
    {down = iCommandPlaneCircuitBreaker_33,        value_down = 1,    name = _('Change APKWS Lasercode Third Digit'),                            category = {_('Ground Adjustments')}},

to be able to switch it with any joystick button too

Confirmed the above suggestion from Wisky corrects this.  Plus the 2nd suggestion allows me to bind these to my HOTAS, which is fantastic to have

@Razbam while we are it fixing this for the next patch can we please get keybindings:

barometic altimeter cw / ccw

bingo know cw / ccw

Fuel switch (the one next to bingo knob) cw / ccw

RWR vol. cw / ccw

Counter Measure cw / ccw

ECM Pod cw / ccw

Nav Mode (OFF - GND - SEA - NAV - IFF...) cw / ccw (a working one, the one in the game right now doesnt work)

all the brightness knobs cw / ccw (for those that dont want to use pots but rather encoders for that stuff)
