    phidget encoders

    Hi Alan,
    I am just trying fs2ph 5.0.15 atm as i like the direction it is going in. Particularly in my case where I need 1 encoder to control 2 fsinputs depending on a fsoutput position.

    I currently run 5 encoders and 0/ 16/ 16 interface card.

    That being said, I have not been able to get any response out of the encoders into PMMCP. The encoders are recognised by fs2ph as they ding when turned. They dont seem to be writing to the offsets.

    Also I cannot get fs2ph to input PM offsets, it only seems to work with the standard FS ones like the Yaw dampener.

    On the encoders I noticed that when the encoder is pushed (digital input button) the phidget toolbox under inputs when the button is pushed turns green. In this case any of the 5 encoder buttons that are pressed it will light up green on that 1 encoder.

    Other than the JIT errors that other are also getting.

    Anyway I would like to help debug in any way I can.

    Thanks for you efforts

    Alaxus

    ps. The 737MCP.xml file that came with fs2ph 5.0.15 I downloaded was missing the
    <OffValue></OffValue><OnValue></OnValue>
    tags from the input section for offset 04F2.

    Re: phidget encoders

    With version 5.0.16 you will be able to maintain FS Variables.
    Current version gives an error.
    If you want to start playing with 5.0.16 send me an email to alan@coconutair.com
    We can work together on your encoder circuit.
