Hi fellow wiki editors!

To help newly registered users get more familiar with the wiki (and maybe older users too) there is now a {{Welcome to the wiki}} template. Have a look at it and feel free to add it to new users discussion pages (and perhaps your own).

I have tried to keep the template short, but meaningful. /Johan G

These instructions are meant for Windows XP sp2. My Flightgear folder is in C:\program files.

Reason to change keybinding [Space] to a different key: Some planes already have a default function using the [Space] bar. Example planes would be the Dave's hangar planes and the hovercraft Bluebird,  Pressing [Space] in these planes causes

other functions to occur and neutralizes the Fgcom function.  So it is imperative to change the keybinding if you would like to utilize Fgcom on these planes.

How to change the keybindings:  Go to Program files and open the Flightgear folderThen open the Data folder.  Continue by opening keyboard.xml.  Use Wordpad as your editing application.

'''My favorite airports''' are KACV, KDEN, LILO, EHAM, RJTT, PHNL, and SVPP.
Background information:  Most of the information can be found already on wiki flightgear.  But this is just to reiterate how the keyboard configuration works.

+
43 is tied to [ + ].  They are bonded to each other.  They cannot be seperated.  If you input <key n="44"> with  <name>+</name>, this key configuration will fail.  Rule of thumb, when copying and pasting, be sure to copy and paste the number and the symbol together as a couple.

+
Press Ctrl + F to open the Find box.  Type 'space' and locate the keybinding for 'Push to Talk'. Now you know where the keybinding is to talk.  We must find a different and hopefully useless keybinding to substitute.  Since I hate the Warp function in Flightgear, we'll use this.  So search for Warp:
+
 
+
<key n="87">
+
  <name>W</name>
+
  <desc>Decrease warp</desc>
+
<binding>
+
  <command>property-adjust</command>
+
  <property>/sim/time/warp</property>
+
  <step type="int">-60</step>
+
  </binding>
+
  </key> 
+
 
+
Copy : - <key n="87"> <name>W</name>
+
 
+
Paste over- <key n="43">      ***Note***This number 43 responds to a different key, So please ignore it.
+
  <name>Space</name>
+
  <desc>PTT - Push To Talk (via VoIP)</desc>
+
<binding>
+
  <command>nasal</command>
+
  <script>space(1, modifiers.getValue())</script>
+
  </binding>
+
<mod-up>
+
<binding>
+
  <command>nasal</command>
+
  <script>space(0, modifiers.getValue())</script>
+
  </binding>
+
  </mod-up>
+
<mod-shift>
+
<binding>
+
  <command>nasal</command>
+
  <script>space(1, modifiers.getValue())</script>
+
  </binding>
+
<mod-up>
+
<binding>
+
  <command>nasal</command>
+
  <script>space(0, modifiers.getValue())</script>
+
  </binding>
+
  </mod-up>
+
  </mod-shift>
+
  </key>
+
 
+
Result should look like:
+
 
+
<key n="87">
+
  <name>W</name>
+
  <desc>PTT - Push To Talk (via VoIP)</desc>
+
<binding>
+
  <command>nasal</command>

<binding>

  <command>nasal</command>

  <script>space(0, modifiers.getValue())</script>
+
  </binding>
+
  </mod-up>
+
  </mod-shift>
+
  </key>
+
 
+
Go back to the original  <key n="87">
+
            <name>W</name>
+
Change the number to something over 350 or delete the function:
+
 
+
<key n="87">
+
  <name>W</name>
+
  <desc>Decrease warp</desc>
+
<binding>
+
  <command>property-adjust</command>
+
  <property>/sim/time/warp</property>
+
  <step type="int">-60</step>
+
  </binding>
+
  </key>
+
 
+
Save file and quit and test Flightgear Fgcom with the new configured key.

I'm just a casual Flightgear pilot. Mostly I like to uncover how FG works, and I look for hidden things that I can play with. I enjoy exploring the sim world looking for glitches, and I enjoy learning and practicing navigation techniques.

I'm not working on anything, just learning the sim. I do however use FGcom 122.75, and I usually upload screenshots onto flickr.

I like to hang around with Yakko, Buckaro, Jomo, and occassionally new pilots.

My favorite airports are KACV, KDEN, LILO, EHAM, RJTT, PHNL, and SVPP. Favorite planes? I'm glad you asked, most of the developed planes, the Citation series, Dave's Hangar planes, and Buck's goose.
