    Help with FSUIPC offset please

    I am using FSX (sp1) with FSUIPS4.30/winFS7.
    I am reading a number of cockpit indicators on another networked pc via winFS then using an interface and the FSUIPC SDK to display the indicators using LEDs.
    The aircraft I am using is the Learjet 45 and I have managed to display all indicators except 'L IGN' and 'R IGN' as I cannot find the correct FSUIPC offset to read these.
    Any help with finding the correct offset for these indicators would be appreciated.
    I have used the logging function of FSUIPC and get the following when I press the button but still cant find the correct offsets :-

    9616875 *** EVENT: Cntrl= 66717 (0x0001049d), Param= 1 (0x00000001) TURBINE_IGNITION_SWITCH_TOGGLE
    9618766 *** EVENT: Cntrl= 66717 (0x0001049d), Param= 2 (0x00000002) TURBINE_IGNITION_SWITCH_TOGGLE

    The offsets I require are for the state of whether the L or R IGN is on or off

    Thanks

    Have you tried FSInterrogate that comes with the SDK along with a nice big PDF with all of the offsets ? These have helped me greatly in the past.

    Thanks Padraig,

    I have used FSInterrogate to find a lot of the other offsets but unfortunately it doesn't find this one. I have found others though that exist but that FSInterrogate doesn't find so still hoping that the offset exists.
    I have also been through the list of offsets and even searched for things like 'ignition' etc but may have missed something as the list is quite big.

    cheers

    Dave,

    Somtimes there is no offset for such stuff. Sometimes the individual aircraft panel models the system "outside" the MS flight system parameters that FSUIPC can "see". In that case.... VERY difficult to capture the data stream without help from the aircraft panel developer.

    I fly a BAe 146-200... another rare aircraft that provides many such issues.

    best,

    .................john

    Thanks John,

    Looks like its probably not possible but havn't given up yet, theres always a way.
    Its the default learjet 45 so don't have the option of being able to contact the model developer and i'm sure Micosoft won't be very helpfull.

    Cheers

    I posted this on Pete Dowsons FSUIPC site and he is sorting it out for me.

    For anyone else who needs this offset, here is petes reply:-

    so I'll add them in the interim FSUIPC4 update planned for later today. I'll add these to the TURB ENG set of values, as follows:

    208C (4 bytes) Turb eng 1 ignition switch, 1=on 0=off
    218C (4 bytes) Turb eng 2 ignition switch, 1=on 0=off
    228C (4 bytes) Turb eng 3 ignition switch, 1=on 0=off
    238C (4 bytes) Turb eng 4 ignition switch, 1=on 0=off
    Cheers
