    Jan,

    Had a look on your web site and see you are using pmSystems.

    Here's tip:

    Get into pmSystems Developer Mode.
    Make sure you check box to "Show variables".
    Click on a switch or annunciator.

    The FSUIPC Offset and Length will pop up on screen.
    The Offset is what you need.
    For two VALVE CLOSED functions these are: 0890 and 0928

    In the pmSystems documenation (sysvar.txt) these are listed as:
    fsCutoff1 and fsCutoff2.

    If you look through your FS2PhUIPC.ini file you will see these offsets listed as:
    [ENGINE_1_FUEL_LEVER] and [ENGINE_2_FUEL_LEVER]

    As a rule:
    - FSUIPC offsets 5600 and greater are special offsets for pmSystems.
    - If the variable name on the screen in Developer mode begins with "fs"
    then pmSystems uses a standard Flight Sim offset to achieve functionality.

    Best regards,
    Alan.

    Variable Word

    Hi Alan,

    Thanks for your answer.
    The only problem I see is that I do not know the right code for FS2higets!

    Pm Systems variables says:

    0890 2 fsCutoff1 WORD

    I do not know the exact FS2hidgets code, specialy for the variable "WORD".

    I tried, and saw some reading, but no LED lighted up:

    [fsCutoff1]
    Offset=890
    Length=2
    FSType=Digital
    OffValue=0
    OnValue=1

    Thanks for any help, or link to documentation

    Jan,

    Did you remember to ENABLE component ?

    You don't need to do anything with INI file.
    Just assign LEDs to ENGINE_1_FUEL_LEVER and ENGINE_2_FUEL_LEVER

    The lines in INI file are not Code, but settings.
    Important distinction.

    [ENGINE_2_FUEL_LEVER] <----- Name to appear in FS2Phidget Assignment
    drop-down list.
    Offset=0928 <----- FSUIPC Offset
    Length=2 <----- FSUIPC Length
    FSType=Digital <----- Tells FS2Phidget how to send or receive values
    to or from FSUIPC.
    OffValue=0 <---- FSUIPC value to send or recieive for hardware
    OFF state.
    OnValue=16384 <---- FSUIPC value to send or recieive for hardware
    ON state

    Alan.

    Thanks Alan,

    it seems to work now!
    Here will be the calibrating feature interesting ...

    The lamps have only very short 100% power. The rest of the time they are off or lighting 50% ...

    Anyway, thanks for the fast help!
