    Explanations welcomed

    Hi,

    could someone please point me to the explanations of the sysvar.txt?

    I noticed a lot of ambiguouity in the description of the various offsets used in pmsystems as there are for example:

    What is the difference between Offsets 04FE.2 (pm Caution), 56F3.0 (Caution) and 56F7.0 (Master caution)??

    Which offset should I use for the Glareshield Buttons / Lights "Master Caution" and "Master Warning"?
    Which is the appropriate offset for "Recall" (recall of cancelled warnings) and is there a cancel button for the sixpacks?
    What does the "Master Light Test" (560D.0) test? Is it a general lamps test button?

    As you can see a lot of questions and these here are only a few examples.

    Where do you guys get all the info from. I couldnīt find any in the docs for pm.

    Any help highly appreciated.

    Peter,

    Best bet for figuring appropriate offset is to
    place pmSystems in Dev mode.
    (press ESC and follow menu options).

    While in dev mode and hovering mouse over
    an item, such as "Master Caution",
    both the offset and the current value for the offset,
    will be displayed.

    Of course, this only works if offset is resprented by a graphic on the pmSystems screen.

    Regards,
    Alan.

    But there are varous Offsets not represented, look at Sysvar.txt.

    A comment near varous offsets will be WELCOMED!

    I'm struggled with some offsets like you!

    If there are offsets that you are having problems with, best to contact support@projectmagenta.com and let Thomas answer those questions for you.

    ... and than, please post them here!!!

    I am in the process of building my OHP, and I guess I will have exactly the same questions.
    I am especially interested in how to get the master caution and recall functions to work.

    Hi Hans,

    the answer is quite simple as the sixpacks and the recall and master warning / caution switchers are already included in Thomas`B747 overhead. Just move the panel a bit up and you can see the sixpacks and the switches. The offsets you can display in dev. mode.

    Hi Peter,

    Does Thomas also have a 373 overhead containing the sixpacks?
    If so, where can I find it?

    Thanks in advance,
    Hans

    Hi Hans,

    yes, the sixpacks are included in Thomasī737 overhead panel. In order to find them you have to move (use the arrow keys on the key board) the panel upwards to get the sixpacks displayed. They are placed left below the overhead. Similar to the Cutoff levers and the master caution, warning and recall buttons.

    Hope you can find them.
