    Exclamation Link2fs negative values not working

    Hi!

    I have a problem regarding setting negative values using link2fs. I am trying to alter the plane's elevation using a potentiometer. The elevation range can be anything between -1638 and 1638.
    When I set the value anywhere between 0 and 1638 {key}{value}(e.g. Y081638). It works just fine, but when I set the value to a negative number (within the range of course) it doesn't affect the simulation at all.

    I am not sure if this is a problem with my formatting {key}-{value}(e.g. Y08-1638), but when I check the simconnect extractions I can see the value can be lower than zero. How can I resolve my issue?

    Thanks in advance!
    -Shane

    Re: Link2fs negative values not working

    Hello guys,
    I have the same problem using AXIS_RUDDER_SET! When the value becomes negative, Link2FS not read anymore!
    I hope you manage to help!
    thanks

    Re: Link2fs negative values not working

    I'm having the same issue with RUDDER_ SET. I found a bug fix logged in version 6b:
    "Fixed the Autopilot Vertical speed setting where it wouldn't take negative numbers on input."
    Does this mean it is a wider ranging bug, or are we all doing something wrong. Can't find any help anywhere on this.
    I tried ticking the 'Hex?' box - it is not the solution.
    I also wondered if it it was expecting leading 0s (all 5 digits) so tried transmitting
    Y24-00600
    for example. (obvisouly I've allocated RUDDER_SET to Y24) - No go.
    Really have no idea what to try next.
    Is this an integer vs unsigned integer issue, or are we sending the wrong string of characters?
    Thanks for any advice,
    David

    Re: Link2fs negative values not working

    That is correct ,, there is a bit of history to that ,, in the early days I decided not to include the ability of basic inputs of axis's as it would just flood the serial coms. and consequently everyone would complain of lag,, lost data, lumpy performance etc etc.

    The thought was to leave that to boards that are made for joystick inputs.

    Now that there is the option of inputting via LAN and also the user able to direct input to FSUIPC etc then maybe I should have a look at adding that option.

    Not sure how much of a 'plus' it would be tho ,, it would be a major change in the code for only a few users I would guess ??

    Cheers ,, Jim
    P.S. sorry for delay ,, I thought I had answered this.

    Re: Link2fs negative values not working

    Just posted today in a different thread about trying to get negative values to work for the brake axis. Found this thread while looking for a solution.
    Jim, are you saying it is not possible to send negative values without going through the FSUIPC section? I'm not quite sure how it all works but I'm using the Serial.println instruction which I can see is writing a negative value in the 'sent to FSX' window for Y07 Simconnect input.
    Just so I know that it's not my programming.
    (Fantastic work by the way).
