    fs2phidget spoiler problem

    Hey guys,

    I am having trouble with the spoiler_handle function with fs2phidgets,

    I am using a phidgets slider pot, PMDG, and using the spoiler_handle fuction. It doesnt even work when i try the emulater. Is this what function is being used by others or is there something im doing here or over looking.

    I have noticed other spoiler offsets for different settings however i gathered that is for a switch type setup rather than a pot setup.

    Any ideas anyone

    ozzie,
    Yup the spoiler in FS is a switch incremental setup not a pot setup as far as I have discovered. Try a KB emulator format for the spoiler instead something simple like a Hagstrom KE72 is cheap and ideal for flaps and spoiler situations. JMO hope it helps u

    I assume you are using the right offset 0BD0? If yes, this is what I am using and it works OK for me.

    Do the settings in your FS Variable file (mine is named FSVariables431.ini)
    match these settings:

    [SPOILER_HANDLE]
    Offset=0BD0
    Length=4
    FSType=Proportional
    LoValue=0
    HiValue=16383

    Hi Guys,

    Yeah its got me beat, i tried forever yesterday, i checked all the offsets as listed buy you guys and all is correct. However i gave it another try today and it worked first time ?????????

    I think i inhaled a little too many paint fumes from painting my quad handles or something yesterday, anyways thanks for your replies and time.
