Tool for controlling XCSoar and LK8000

Post by ryanwoodie » Mon Jan 29, 2024 12:11 am

Here is an enhanced version of the common AutoHotKey script, that provides a user interface (versus having to code it yourself in AHK) to setup keys or joystick buttons/axes to control XCSoar or LK8000 without leaving Condor.

Map joystick controls/buttons, or keys, to control XCSoar or LK8000. Great for VR.

This script controls XCSoar/LK8000 without losing focus (except to toggle mouse control) on your active app (ie. Condor).

Besides switching pages or zooming in/out, here are some of the other things you can do in XCsoar / LK8000 without leaving Condor or VR:
  • Go to the F1 Menu, access menus and adjust settings (eg: add ballast in "Flight Setup")
  • Go to Pan Mode, look around the map and zoom in/out to plan out your route
  • Go to next or prev waypoint
  • Change MC setting
  • Toggle between XCSoar/LK8000 and Condor as the active application, so you can use your mouse as needed.
  • In LK8000, navigate between bottom bar fields and data pages, use multi-target, custom menu buttons, etc.
