Hello Folks


Wiring the last bits, I have assined some switches to work with PMSystem offsets.

So going to "add input option" then to the update PMSystems, then on/up, finding the name on SYSVar etc.

When I get into the action to choose I choose setbit, but there is no option to actually set the bit. (or clrbit)

I assume the SW knows which bit it is, so it does it by itself. Is this the case or am I doing something wrong here ?


Cheers

Isaac

Set bit - and on "off", choose clear bit. Easy - no need to to anything else. Smile Worked for me, at least.

You do know you can download the XML files for most of the functions? Most of them are there, but in a few areas you need to do it manually.

BTW: I THINK (but I don't exactly know - yet) you can use XML's for other planes as well, even if that particular XML doesn't belong to the 737, or 747 or what ever aluminum bird you're working on. Smile

But placing PMSystems in development mode is a very easy way to run through things.

Good luck! Smile

Hi Vidarf

Thank you for your input.


Yes I am familiar with the XMLs, I am now doing the Aft OVHD, Pedestal (fire panels mainly) so I did not find the XMLs for these.


I remember when doing the FSUIPC offsets I had to put in the bits to set/clear, so with the PMSystems I was expecting the same.

Another marvel of the SYSBoards I guess.

Cheers

Isaac

Yeah, Peter and the mob has really taken the "fun" out of interfacing. Very Happy
