    I currently working to brink the bellows:

    Payload's

    2.) Names of payload station
    3.) Each station weight
    4.) Change weight per station or by total

    2.) Engine's used fuel from start
    3.) Engine's fuel elapsed time
    4.) Engine's fuel pressure
    5.) Engine's fuel valves
    6.) Engine's oil quantity
    7.) Engine's vibrations
    8.) Engine's hydralic pressure
    9.) Engine's turbine temperature's
    10.) Engine's torques %

    Hi Achilles

    Last night I tried your payload manager, I was really surprised in what it did. I was looking for something like that for a long time. Just clicking on an onscreen button and then send an Offset to FS. To cool your program, there is a lot more potential in your program. You could also make a page, so we can change the weather and so on.

    Could you please tell me how you made your program? The only code that I can program right now is SIOC.
    Please keep up the good work.

    Cheers Norbert

    Thumbs up Well done!

    Many thanks for this tool Achilles.
    I was actually waiting for this kind of tool, because
    I was not sure my AC loads.

    Yours,

    Hi Achilles,

    Recently installed your Payload Manager programm on a client PC running on wideclient.

    1. programm does not connect automatically to FS. Is this correct?

    2. Noticed that in the "aircraft equipment" page it says NO flaps available.
    Checked with PMDG 737NG and default 737 fs2004 aircraft loaded and all say "flaps available : NO".
    Does that mean I donot get that info from FS? (Incidentally the flaps lights in the AFT OVH also donot show).

    Kind regards
    Tony

    Hi tony,

    1. Programm connects automatically with FS throu fsuipc. If you run the programm from a network pc then you must have widefs.

    2. There was a bug. I fixed that to my internal versions.

    3. I do not know why you do not get those lights. I do nothing. Only reading from fs. Not writing except fuels.
