    Bit values greater than 7

    Hi Alan,
    Using a LED64 with FS2Phidget, I am also using a program FSCONV that determines values from the Level-D 767 to light my LED's.
    It uses offsets from FSUIPC, but with bit values specific to the Level-D.

    Some of the panels have bit values greater than 7 (up to bit 16) for a length 4 offset.
    Currently FS2Phidgets says that up to 8 bits (0-7) can be used.
    I have tried manually editing the variables.ini to read this, but these values arn't accepted.

    Is there anything I can do to get FS2Phidget to respond to these bits?
    I am still new at learning about all these bit and hex stuff, but will appreciate any advice anyone can give.

    Best Regards
    Chris

    Hi Alan,

    I just got a reply from Nico over at avsim.

    My knowledge of these offsets now steps a little higher.
    If I add one to the offset then the bits reset.

    For example, if offset 0550 is needed and bit # 10. If i use offset 0551 and bit 3, then I get the right value.

    New knowledge is good knowledge.
    Things are really starting to come together now.

    Brilliant.

    Thanks again alan.

    That is a very clever workaround.

    Newer version will make things a little easier, or should I say more intuitive.
    Going forward you will be able to specify lengths - up to 8 - for a bit map.
    Appreciate the fedback.
