• Which the release of FS2020 we see an explosition of activity on the forun and of course we are very happy to see this. But having all questions about FS2020 in one forum becomes a bit messy. So therefore we would like to ask you all to use the following guidelines when posting your questions:

    • Tag FS2020 specific questions with the MSFS2020 tag.
    • Questions about making 3D assets can be posted in the 3D asset design forum. Either post them in the subforum of the modelling tool you use or in the general forum if they are general.
    • Questions about aircraft design can be posted in the Aircraft design forum
    • Questions about airport design can be posted in the FS2020 airport design forum. Once airport development tools have been updated for FS2020 you can post tool speciifc questions in the subforums of those tools as well of course.
    • Questions about terrain design can be posted in the FS2020 terrain design forum.
    • Questions about SimConnect can be posted in the SimConnect forum.

    Any other question that is not specific to an aspect of development or tool can be posted in the General chat forum.

    By following these guidelines we make sure that the forums remain easy to read for everybody and also that the right people can find your post to answer it.

Custom Aircraft Specific Switch Mapping

This may not be the forum to get answers for peripheral oriented questions but I will give it a shot anyway.
I have acquired quite a bit of control hardware and I would love to eliminate mouse and keyboard use as much as possible. But many aircraft simulations have cockpit controls that are not within the scope of default P3D key mappings. I would like to find a program that can look at individual gauge files in the panel and allow me to map switch/button/dial functions to a hardware peripheral. I am aware of programs like...

AXES and Ohs
and so

I am asking which would be right for a cockpit builder newcomer to get results with without a lot of complicated macro programing. I can't even figure out the Honeycomb Bravo mapper. Any suggestions?

II think you cannot expect any solution which don't need at least a good XML programming (RPN scripting) understanding...
If you are lucky, your best friend will be ready made linda module (look on Avsim the list of aircraft supported).
Which will need FSUIPC....
