    Project Magenta Start valve open

    Hi,

    I have a question concerning the pm offset 0x508:

    (Engine N/Engine N + 1)
    Bit 0/8 - Start Valve Open
    Bit 1/9 - Oil Filter Bypass
    Bit 2/10 - Low Oil Pressure (set by Glass Cockpit if minimum Oil Pressure Value is defined in the Aircraft.TXT file)

    Who or which FS offsets are controlling this, or what is the logic behind this ?
    Especially the Start Valve Open Bits ?

    Thanks a lot

    Torsten

    Hello!

    Best regards,

    Hi Konstantin,

    thanks for your reply. This is an "internal" offset of PM:

    http://www.projectmagenta.com/pmoffsets.html

    This seems to control the "lights" in the PM EICAS Display.

    Thanks

    Torsten

    Re: Start valve open

    Torsten,

    it seems strange for me , I thought that all variables, including the "software only" (i.e. for EICAS screen or PFD/ND controlling bits) are managed by the logics file (bmsys737.lgc). Looks like I've been mistaking...

    Please keep the thread updated if you'll find where the variables are managed.

  5. Thanks Spyy thanked for this post
