    Old: Lekseecon and 767 throttle annunciators

    I am building a 767 throttle quadrant and and wondering how to connect the 5 "valve" warnings located on the face? I have looked through the Lekseecon document and must of missed it.
    Can you tell me what the offsets are?

    In the Level-D panel there are 4 annunciators at the Engine Fuel Control panel, at least that's what the Operations Manual tells me. Have not checked it yet in the sim.

    The SDK cannot provide more informaton then what is in the Level-D panel ...

    Note by the way, that there is a bug in the Level-D panel (and therefore also in the SDK) with respect to these Valves:
    If you start up the Level-D and you set your Fuel Control switches to RUN, then you will notice that the Valve annuns will stay ON, instead of ON for just 2-3 seconds. This only happens if you have not opened the Pedestal Window once, and also the next time you switch your Fuel Controls it works fine. So to prevent this bug, remember to open and close the Pedestal window once before you start up your sim!

    The Level-D team is aware of this but they call this a minor bug because it only effects people with a real cockpit, while glass cockpit pilots normally have the Pedestal window open when controlling the Fuel Switches.

    I will use the 4 valve annunciators that are available then.
    Thats too bad about the bug, I had not planned on using the main panel or virtual cockpit in my pit, so accessing the virtual before every flight will probably not happen.
    At least I know why something strange occur if I don't.

    The "workaround" refers to is just to save the cold and dark situation with the the Pedestal Software panel window displayed in the EICAS. I have a switch that toggles this window off (and On). So when I start up the sim my first action is to switch off the pedestal window thus satisfying the once off operation of the window....from then on the annunciators work fine.

    It is actually quite handy whilst developing your cockpit to be able to switch the pedestal and overhead windows into the EICAS position with toggle switches. Now that Lekseecon is running so beautifully there is not such a need but in earlier days I found it quit handy to see what the software panel was doing or to operate it directly should some hardware function not operate for some reason.
