Working Altitude binding for AAO with Honeycomb Bravo?


Recommended Posts

Hey,聽

I remember waiting forever to fly the CRJ9 & CRJ10, I took a break from the CRJ7 after being annoyed with the controls interface in sim. After finally getting the CRJ "expansion" I was confronted with the fact that the people who make the software for my hardware still haven't bothered to put any updates into the drivers/bindings, so I guess I need to go buy Axis And Oh's because why make the software work with your products, that's silly....

After grabbing AAO and throwing in a few different templates to look for one that fixed my biggest annoyance, I've found that every one of them works with the rotary knobs for Heading, Speed, VS, etc.......but none of them seem to work for setting altitude, which is the biggest annoyance with the CRJ in sim. Adjusting the speed isn't that bad with mouse and I don't really use it that much anyways, heading can be centered, but adjusting the altitude is a huge PITA and it would be soooo much easier to just spin the rotary knob.

Did Aerosoft kill something in all of these CRJ templates? Am I missing something? Really confused that everything else works from setting different modes with all the buttons, selecting which rotary I want to spin on the FCP, and even adjusting those modes with the right knob, but altitude just refuses to move.

Feeling really frustrated that I can't figure this out and further disappointed with Aerosoft holding the Honeycomb software bag聽 馃槙

I use AaO too and i can upload the Script later. But i use it with an other controller (X-Touch Mini) and so you have to look how you can bind it to your rotary.

As promised here are my scripts to set the altitude:

This one increments the Altitude by 100ft per Klick:

(L:ASCRJ_FCP_ALT_SEL,路Number)路10路+路dnor路(>L:ASCRJ_FCP_ALT_SEL,路Number)路(L:ASCRJ_FCP_ALT_CHANGE,路Number)路1路(>L:ASCRJ_FCP_ALT_CHANGE,路Number)

And this one decrements the same amount:
(L:ASCRJ_FCP_ALT_SEL,路Number)路10路-路dnor路(>L:ASCRJ_FCP_ALT_SEL,路Number)路(L:ASCRJ_FCP_ALT_CHANGE,路Number)路-1路(>L:ASCRJ_FCP_ALT_CHANGE,路Number)

But i do not know how to bind them to the Bravo Rotary that they get active by selecting via the mode knob...

As Ha_Ma says, hereare the AxisAndOhs scripts to change the ALT in the CRJ FCP.
Note the button may not visually rotate, but the altitude on the display will change.

SELECT ALTITUDE SCRIPT:聽
1路(>L:ASCRJ_FCP_ALT,路Number)

INCREMENTALTITUDE SCRIPT:聽
(L:ASCRJ_FCP_ALT_SEL,路Number)路10路+路(>L:ASCRJ_FCP_ALT_SEL,路Number)路
(L:ASCRJ_FCP_ALT_CHANGE,路Number)路++路(>L:ASCRJ_FCP_ALT_CHANGE,路Number)

DECREMENT ALTITUDE SCRIPT:聽
(L:ASCRJ_FCP_ALT_SEL,路Number)路10路-路(>L:ASCRJ_FCP_ALT_SEL,路Number)路
(L:ASCRJ_FCP_ALT_CHANGE,路Number)路--路(>L:ASCRJ_FCP_ALT_CHANGE,路Number)

And here a tutorial on how to use AxisAnd Ohs :聽

Hi Ha_Ma,

A question please :聽
I have used the "dnor" instruction, but never saw any effect of it despite the fact it is supposed to "normalize" the value range.
Can you tell me more about it ?
I may have misused or misunderstood it, however.

Thank you.聽

I am sorry, but i can not help further here. My knowledge in script programming is limited and i got lots of help from a friend in another forum.

But i guess it is because the difference in our second part of our scripts. You have a seperate file that says:

(L:ASCRJ_FCP_ALT_CHANGE,路Number)路++路(>L:ASCRJ_FCP_ALT_CHANGE,路Number)

And i have one complete file like:

So i think the dnor makes it possible to write one file and change the ++ in the second part to 1.

But this is just my assumption.

Hi Ha_Ma,

Thank you.
I see. Your script encapsulates the altitude selection AND the altitude change, wich is a good idea.
I will further check that "dnor" stuff and post an answer if I ever find it聽 !

Best regards.
