    No longer supporting FS2Phidget

    As of today I will no longer be supporting or providing new releases of FS2Phidget. I am bailing out.

    Regards,
    Alan.

    Im guessing he spent another one of his weekends implementing a new feature for a builder only to hear nothing back once again.

    Sorry to hear that Alan, your work is a great contribution to cockpit building. Having done some aircraft modelling in the past I fully understand how frustrating it can be to invest a great deal of time into something, then give it away for free only to be inundated with complaints, requests etc. Good luck with your future endevours and thanks for FS2Phidgets, I'll be using it for years to come.

    Ditto from me Alan. The tone of your rather succinct note above seems to indicate that someone gave you a raft of undeserved %$#@ recently.

    What you've already done for the field is GREATLY appreciated by many folks.

    Best of luck in whatever you are doing. I hope this does not mean that you've given up on flight simming and building your cockpit.

    best,

    Yep same here.

    I will never forget the first time that I hooked up my stick shakers to a phidgets card, downloaded your great software, then pointed the nose to the sky. What a sensation.

    Thank you so much Alan for your immense, selfless contributions to flight simming. I will never forget the moment my autothrottles came to life with your great software.

    You are a true gentleman and you deserve a hearty round of applause for the help you have provided over the years with no other motive than a love for aviation & for this great hobby. Your contributions will always be appreciated & will never be forgotten.

    I do hope your reasons have nothing to do with health or other serious issues and I wish you & your family the very best now & in the future.

    Best regards always,

    Maurice

    Sorry to hear that Alan, but understandable.

    If it wasn't for you, my pit wouldn't have all the functions it is capable of. I appreciate all the help you've given me and my fellow simmers.

    Best wishes Alan.
