    Johnny,

    Have you downloaded FS2Phidget yet? Downloading that and playing with it is a great first step. It will also be really helpful to have a copy of FSUIPC.

    Once you can frame some more specific questions, it will be easier to get answers to you.

    Re: Gear up and down indicators

    Hi There!
    yes I have downloaded Fs2Phidget4365 and Fs2Phidget5021 and FSUIPC registered version but why does both versions of Fs2phidget show up differently which one do I need to use do I use both?See attached screenshots.Want I want to do is to make led's light up like on a 737 aircraft's instrument panel or go off and on when gear goes up and down for nose gear left gear and right gear and for them to have a delay like in a real 737 aircraft.

    Re: Gear up and down indicators

    Johnny,

    It has been awhile since I played with Fs2p, but will try.

    The developer of fs2p (Alan/CocnutAir) got as far as fs2p5. It turned out to not be loved by its users, due to a new GUI. He is no longer updating the 5 series, and reverted to fs2p4. If you are just starting out, I would dump 5 and just use 4.

    For your lights, here is how I would investigate. The FSUIPC SDK comes with a program called FsInterrogate. It will allow you to see the status of offsets in real time. You can then start a flight with gear down, check the value of the offset, raise the gear, check the value in transit and then when fully raised. This will give you the numeric values to plug into fs2p to light the appropriate lights.

    Hope that helps,

    Reid

    Re: Gear up and down indicators

    Hi Alan!
    Thanks for the reply what does this mean The gear is example I use in documentation and where do I find this?Hate to sound like someone who has loose marbles in his head but do you mean that I need to go to a file somewhere and look this info up?I also noticed that when I load the program Fs2Phidget4365 and the other file Fs2Phidget and change it to Fs2Phidget.exe and install it into the program file to replace exsisting file in folder I have to move the FSVariables4364 file into FSVariable folder for it to show up listed in the drop down box in program. If I don't do this it don't show up in the drop down box of program.Am I correct in doing this or what?Look at the 2 samples I have here.

    Thanks Johnny G.

    Johhny,

    Let's establish a starting point for walking thru this. How much do you know about FSUIPC offsets ?

    Regards,
    Alan
