    FS2Phidgets and an LED64 board

    I'm having some difficulty trying to get some of my annuciators to light up. I probably should have done some more testing before actually building the annuciator panel but live and learn I guess. I was hoping to be able to light up the left and right generator lights (when the generators are turned off) as well as a left and right engine start light (that will light up as the engines start to spool up), problem is I can't seem to find a variable in the dropdown list that will do this for me. I was hoping someone might have a suggestion or some advice on getting this working.

    Thanks

    Engine Running

    Hi Shawn:

    The Fs2Phidgets list doesn't have all the possible FSUIPC offsets.
    Get a copy of the FSUIPC SDK from Pete Dowsons site.
    It lists most of the known offsets. Offset $0894 and $092C are the
    "Engine Running" offsets. I am using them for my start panel.

    You will have to use the phidgets variable editor to add them to the drop down box in Fs2Phidgets. I had to use the "range of values" definition to get them to work. (mult=100 min=37 max=112)

    Also remember that some offsets only work with certain types of aircraft.
    You may need to delve into the Air and Config file for your specific aircraft.

    Regards Ken K

    Thanks for the reply Ken. I'll print off the FSUIPC SDK and start studying.

    Cheers
