View Full Version : Cannot start engines ++

12-23-2007, 10:43 AM
I recently had to re-build my Overhead hardware using FDT boards and build 110 of PMSytems and now everything works except all of the light switches and the engine start switches. I have checked, (and checked and checked again!!), that the nswitches are giving the correct output but PM does not recognise them and, of course, I do not see them move on the PM graphics.

Strange thing is that all other switches work, I can power up electrics, start APU, open bleed valves etc, etc but when I come to start engines or turn on any lights there is nothing.

This has been driving me crazy for 2 days.

Would someone please tell me what I am doing wrong :-)

Not that it will make you feel any happier, but I have also suffered from the same problems. I can start the engines (usually) with the mouse, but not the hardware.

I will research the problem, and mail pm support.

Hi Paul

Interstingly I never thought to try with a mouse but when I did I still cannot move the switches - but I can when I run PM as a stand alone piece of software.
