    The last piece of the puzzle

    I need to figure out the last piece to my puzzle. I am trying to get my prop panel working (see websit fro pics). Unfortunately I use double throw momentary toggles (push toggle up prop advances, toggle down prop decreases) instead of levers (worked great in FS2P4) in 1000 point increments. Can we figure out a way, so that it will work in FS2P5? There is nothing special (besides the age) of these toggles, just a standrd momentary DT hooked into a 16/16 phidget.


    thanx in advance.

    Re: The last piece of the puzzle

    We had bounced some ideas around, but I cannot remember what problem was with solution.
    btw, I figured out how to get FS detected after fs2ph starts.

    ALAN!!! I thought you left...glad you didnt.

    Got FS2P5 working good, by deleting everything and starting over. We never did figure out how to get the prog to recognize toggles as inputs for the props.

    Re: The last piece of the puzzle

    As I recall your prop switch was 3 position toggle.
    MOMENTARY - OFF - MOMENTARY.
    Do I have it correctly?

    Re: The last piece of the puzzle

    How do i get the Decrease to get "power"??? Whenever i move it like your instructions said, it just draws off teh connector, as shown.

    Also, you will notice a connector placed before the increase switch. If that is not there, it just gives an unhandled exception: "OBject reference not set to an instance of an object."

    What am I doing wrong??
