Hi all.

Anyone know how to set up the circuit to simulate how these lights will flash until you press them but will also restart flashing if another fault occurs?

I can get them to flash and latch off on the first warning reset but how do you get it to start flashing with another fault.

Thanks for helping the Noob

I have tweaked software to reset push-to-reset in circuits with parallel elements.
Download 5.0.17
I have included a sample caution and warning project in the zip. Is not in the installer.
Ciruit has 3 warning indicators set by a digital input (these would be replaced by an fsInput or somesuch).

I've been through all the FSUIPC offset list and docs. I understand from reading them and messages here (and other forums) that you have to look for all the individual caution and warning conditions and respond to them. But is there no built-in FS bit to flip for a master caution and/or warning light? Even the default cockpits have those. Resetting a physical hardware light on error is cool, but I'll still have the virtual one blinking and the sound playing.

Has anyone heard of ANY sort of offset or something for the master caution and warning lights so you don't have to mouse click on their graphical versions in the cockpit to reset them?

BTW: Alan: I'm really looking forward to the drag and drop in the next version! It's kind of cumbersome to lay out circuits in 5.018 right now. Thanks again for a great tool.
