    Link2fs EXPERTS - Simconnect Inputs doesn't hate me after all.

    This comes a great relief.

    The pre-installed SimConnect Events found in place when the EXPERTS -Simconnect Inputs tab was pressed for the first time worked. Any new input would eventually fail and by the time to shut down for the night came nothing worked. Eventually used 'KEYS' or 'FSUIPC Commands' as a temporary solution.

    Event in question: Adjust the position of the attitude bars on the artificial horizon. And naturally this instruction was placed in box 'Y01' which disabled any correct inputs to follow.

    Procedure: Google "Event IDs - MSDN - Microsoft", download (print) as a PDF, then search "attitude bars". Find the 'Event I.D.' "KEY_ATTITUDE_BARS_POSITION_INC" in bold type, since I am attracted to the first and the brightest. Then remove the leading "KEY_" and paste what remaining into box Y01.

    Problem: This is one of the few entries that the 'Event I.D.' less "KEY_" is not the same as the 'SimConnect Name' in the next column.

    Solution: Try everything in sight when your first choice does not work and the entry in the 'SimConnect Name' column "ATTITUDE_BARS_POSITION_UP" did work.

    While we are in the neighbourhood "TRUE_AIRSPEED_CAL_INC" works while "TRUE_AIRSPEED_CALIBERATE_INC" doesn't.

    Re: Link2fs EXPERTS - Simconnect Inputs doesn't hate me after all.

    EDIT. To say 'hates" is way to strong. Saddened that something resulting from so much hard work is being abused by a rank amateur might be more appropriate. Sorry Jim, My apologies.

    EDIT. ADD-- "Was sure that the frequent attempts to input bad code resulted in a corrupted configuration file and that 'Simconnect Inputs would have nothing to do with me for its own protection."
