    I think you need to use "GFDisplay". There should be information about it in the FSUIPC User Guides.

    GFDisplay comes with some examples. Just lighting the LEDs on an RP48 is reasonably easy if you know the offsets and bits which trigger them -- the PM ones are all listed on their website.

    I actually can't really support GFDisplay any more, mainly because I've not used it or dealt with it for years. Instead I'd recommend using the GoFlight library ("GFD") facilities in a Lua plug-in, running in FSUIPC itself. I implemented support there precisely because I thought GFDisplay to be rather obscure (arcane parameter structures), and unsupportable in the longer term.

    If you need help with Lua plug-ins, I can certainly offer that -- more so than with GFDisplay. But please ask in my Support Forum.

    Regards

    Hi!!

    i just tried with offsets again but nothing happends...
    not even the switch works that way...
    on project magenta homepage it says its for fs98 2002....or something
    im using FSX? is it old offsets?

    i downloaded gfdisplay but it seems to be complicated... i just want a led to light
    not be a rocket scientist...

    someone who knows how to do??

    Regards:Tommy

    Since you never bother to say what you are "trying with offsets" I'm not surprised no one can help. Tell folks what you are doing.

    Most of the more usual PM offsets have not changed since FS98 days, same as FSUIPC. It is called "compatibility".

    I suggested you ask in my Support Forum -- but not about GFDisplay as I already explained. Just complaining that everything is too complicated for you is not going to help.

    There are very recent threads and exaples of lighting the RP48 LEDs in Lua on my Support Forum right now, but you don't want to even look? It really is not complicated. (And in fact Rocket Science is surely not really complicated -- nowhere near as complicated as flying an aircraft. It's all a matter of lighting something which burns explosively, and pointing the result the opposite way you want to travel! <G>).
