    LED-Brightness in LED64, to Alan

    Hi Alan,
    is it possible to have a option in FS2Phidget that control the brightness of Led by value of Offset-byte?
    We have this funktion in pmSystems, it can control Phidgets-cards.
    There we have this option, called MAX2 and MAX4.
    It means that if the Offset we use (must be a Byte):

    MAX2 // Value 0 = 0, 1 = 50, 2 = Intensity 100
    MAX4 // Value 0 = 0, 1 = 25, 2 = 50, 3 = 75, 4 = Intensity 100

    It is very nice to control i.e. the DIM / BRIGHT for Fuelcrossfeed with only one LED.
    In pmSystems it is working very well.
    Do you think you can implement this in your next Update.

    Best Regards
    Thomas Richter

    Is MAX2 and MAX4 an offset or a user-defined variable?

    What is offset for FuelCrossFeed ?

    Thomas,

    At present it is possible to set LED64 brightness based on an offset value.

    Regards,
    Alan.
