Elevator Trim question

Actually this is regarding trim in general, not just elevator. Anyway, I've connected the trim switch and have a question. The way it works now, is each click of the hat switch provides 1 "click" of trim travel. Description: Trim Position control Offset: 0BC0 Type: Smallnt Operation: Increment Value...

Hi Jon, Yes, I'm using InterfaceIT software to program the XML that gets sent to FSUIPC. I'm sure that these are the correct Offsets, but I just haven't figured out the correct syntax to get them working in FS2004. I really appreciate your feedback and assistance though! I'm going to keep messing wi...

Thanks Jon, great info! I installed the FSUIPC SDK and found the offsets: 0000:3590, "Engine 1 Fuel Valve [FS2002+]", "U32", 4 bytes Usage: BOOLEAN (1 = open, 0 = closed) 0000:3594, "Engine 2 Fuel Valve [FS2002+]", "U32", 4 bytes Usage: BOOLEAN (1 = open, 0 = closed] I'm having difficulties trying t...

I'm able to get Gen1 and Gen 2 turned on, I can also spool up # 1 engine, but am not having any luck using offset 092A for the other engine. I also wanted to know if someone had the offset for the two fuel on/off switches located on the throttle quad of the 737/777? Offset 3104 is for fuel pump, whi...

Ah, so if an FS command has 3 offset options (ie: off, start, Gen), how would that be handle by 3 different switches? For example, in order to start the Turbomecha turbofan engines on my jet, the normal start sequence is below, each one a toggle switche, except for step 6 witch is a push-button. 1. ...

I'm not using PM......

The value comes from the example in the InterfaceIT manual V2 (page 16). Bit values into Offset values.

0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 ...etc
1, 2, 4, 8, 16, 32, 64, 128 ...etc

It sounds like I'm looking at the wrong manual. I'll see what I can find in the FSUIPC manual.

InterfaceIT - Offset Help Request

Can someone help me on this issue? I need someone who has programmed their FDS-SYS switches, without using the preloaded PM XML files for a 737. My flight simulator is NOT a commercial aircraft, AND I'm not using Project Magenta. The problem I'm having is trying to find the correct offset to use for...

You know, simulators do cost a lot of money, home-built or professionally built. Then again, you could pick up a nice Piper Cherokee or Cessna 150 for about $12,000. It would cost you about $5k-$7k to get your license. :) Of course you wont have a cool flight deck to watch all of the blinking lights...

Stoney, Michal, If you take a look at my simulator website you can see the wire diagram as well as a photo of how the capacitors are wired in series. On the website, look at the "Updates" page, scroll to bottom of page. This is only valuable for those needing to control higher voltage lights, relays...

Hi Viper, thanks for the tip.

Whats the difference between toggling a bit and setting it. Can you give me an example of what function they would be used for in that manner?

Thanks!

I think I know what the problem is with my switch needing a couple of clicks before it registers being in the off position. In another post, I read that you only need toprogram the switch for the "On" function, it will know when it is in the "Off" position. I had 1 switch in InterfaceIT programmed w...

FSUIPC documentation is pretty detailed and talks about setting offset bits different values, depending on the function being discussed. When it starts talking about "longword" or "ntword" and such, it's beyond my programming skills. :oops: I understand the binary of 1=on and 0=off, etc. Unfortunate...

Ok, sorry for not being very clear. I'm using InterfaceIT software to program the switches and lights of the FDS-SYS hardware, which will in turn interpret switches actuated in the cockpit into commands for FS9. Switch <ON> ----> FDS-SYS ---> FSUIPC ----> FS9 Light <ON> <---- FDS-SYS <---- FSUIPC <-...
