Hello ,

Pierre, 04FE offset is "read only" for PFD / MIP annonciators.

For switches connexions, look at offset 5562

pmSounds Inhibit bits

Bit 0 Inhibit GPWS (or whatever is defined in the pmSounds.INI)
Bit 1 Inhibit Gear Warning
Bit 2 Inhibit Flaps Warning

Look in PmSounds.cfg, [inhibit] section.

For "sys test", I don't know. Look in Soundlist.txt, there is an user defined offset 5564 we can use to call some sounds, but how to play every sound one after the other ?

Perhaps with a additionnal program in PMsystem, or with sioc

Hello again,

find something else, in PMsystems110 sysvar file,

564E .0 GPWSTerrOff
564E .1 GPWSSysOff
564E .2 GPWSGSOff
564E .3 GPWSFlapOff
564E .4 GPWSFlap3Off
564E .5 GPWSGndOff
564E .6 nGpws-test

but nothing yet in pmsys737, so offset only already reserved for that.

Hi Aluver,

Regarding offset 04FE, I can't get to light up the GPWS or the G/S lights when these warnings take place.

If I understand it correctly:
GPWS: bit 1 of offset 04FE turned to "1" means GPWS active?
G/S: bit 10 of offset 04FE turned to "1" means G/S warning active?

Any clarification or correction on this? It doesn't seem to work for me.

Thanks!

Sorry, I never test that for time now.

10 EGPWS/Terrain (Captain)

Did you try FS Interrogate ? It's a good way to see how FSUIPC offsets act.

I've tried FS Interrogate and the values of OFFSET 04FE just don't change, no matter what warnings are triggered.

Maybe this offset is not working for the PM Airbus Suite?

Any other ideas?

Hi Trev,

New to all this, Im using a SYS3 board with interface IT. So to set the Terrain An1 to light, I Enter OFFSET 04FE , DATA TYPE Byte ACTION 2 Value on Value on 10 ? am I right on this?

Record a wav file with all the warnings one after the other and manage to have that file read when you push the test switch.
