    Limitations of software

    While FS2Phidget software provides a lot of offsets it seems to be missing the majority of them. For example, I would love to include OMI lights in my cockpit which should be simple enough but I don't see offsets for that. I know FSUIPC passes those from FS9. Any chance we can add offsets to the software? It would be great if it had an ini file that we could alter. Just a thought

    Limitations of software

    David,

    FSUIPC settings are not hard-coded in software.
    These are stored in an Access database that is editable by user.

    I am currently replacing Access database with regular ini files.
    Will allow users with only text editor, such as note pad, at their disposal, to update settings.

    Your marker beacon entries within INI file would look something like this:

    [INNER_MARKER]
    Offset=0BAC
    Length=2
    FSType=On-Off
    OffValue=0
    OnValue=1
    [MIDDLE_MARKER]
    Offset=0BAE
    Length=2
    FSType=On-Off
    OffValue=0
    OnValue=1
    [OUTER_MARKER]
    Offset=0BB0
    Length=2
    FSType=On-Off
    OffValue=0
    OnValue=1

    Regards,
    Alan.

    Thank you!

    Outstanding! ini files I can handle - even Access files now that I know what I am dealing with. That might also explain the strange file I got from the Project Magenta group that is supposed to have their offsets. Thanks for the help
