FDS throttle reversers assignment in PSX?

Hi all,

Been testing this amazing real throttle conversion from FDS. I'm struggling to setup the reverse axis in PSX. I have each throttle assigned to an axis in PSX, but since the reversers are on the same axis, there is nowhere left to assign them.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated :D

Right 747 EFIS Issue? (Resolved)

A possible Issue? The right 747 EFIS running Glare 1.8.2. The VOR switches cannot go into the OFF position in PSX. Left EFIS works fine.

I actually did mine slightly differently: Auto login: 1/ First step is to open Run command box by simultaneously pressing Windows logo and R keys (Windows+R). In the Run dialog box, type Netplwiz and then press Enter key. 2/ In the resulting User Accounts dialog, select your user account first and t...

MIP lighting?

Just trying to get ideas for lighting the MIP. I was thinking of getting PC LED RGB strip lights and sticking them the underside of the MIP whee there is a slight lip.

Unfortunately not. That does dim the display in PSX though, which shows the USB buttons are working.

Forgot to post some updates on here! I moved my sim into a custom built garden studio. I am sending my real yokes off to Pedro from simujabs to construct a dual linked system.
