  • Adding HOTAS button actions

    I I wanted to have a response in Event Horizon that correlates to leaving my pilot seat. Currently bound to my POV hat right. Is it possible to have the first officer respond to that mapped command? Currently it's:

    Set Text [~~press this key] to 'sc_v_exitseat'
    Execute command, '((keypress))' (by name) (and wait until it completes)

    I see that all of the profiles I have have a ((RS-Goodbye)) folder in them, I just want to utilize it not only with saying it, but with that button press as well.

    You could just map the joystick button press to said command. HOwever, this means that it would fire *whenever* you press that button

    There are methods to track the state, but they would be entirely "internal" (ie in the profile itself), and quite possibly prone to breaking ala panel tracking in the old Singularity profile (before Frontier gave us their status.json file)
    1) I reject your reality.... and substitute my own
    2) Not to be used when upset... will void warranty
    3) Stoke me a clipper i will be back for dinner
    4) Never tell Gangrel to do anything... he will probably get it wrong

      Thank you, that is what I already have done Gangrel, what I'm asking for is a way to take the button press and have my first officer (whomever that may be) respond with "Goodbye" or "Goodbye Captain" or "Get us a coffee will ya?"

        As I said, you would just need to make the command so that it plays the relavent ((RS-XXXX)) sound file.

        If I remember correctly, you would need to set variable [Role] to the correct one (NumberOne I believe is the text it needs to be).

        If you look at the other commands which play a sound file that changes according to who is on the role, it would give you information on how to achieve this. I am not at a PC with VA installed (posting this from phone), so not directly able to say command name or what not
