Evening Gents,
Perhaps I'm just not seeing the obvious, but how do we leverage either the "FSUIPC Offset" 1 thru 10 fields or the "Internal Link" 1 thru 10 fields in the Sys Board Interface application? I can assign outputs to them, but I'm not sure where or how to have them trigger action. I have tried modifying the assignments.ini file without success.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks, Steve

INTERNAL LINK's are straight links of the inputs and outputs.
Uses might be if you want to control a Fan or Light from an overhead switch.
You would assign the overhead switch to INTERNAL LINK1 on the inputs.
You would then assign a relay output to INTERNAL LINK1 on the Outputs.
When the input to INTERNAL LINK1 is on the INTERNAL LINK1 outputs goes on.

FSUIPC OFFSET 1 - Inputs
Sets an FSUIPC offset to a particular value when a button is pressed.
Step 1 : Press the button.
Step 2 : Press Assign next to FSUIPC OFFSET 1
Step 3 : Add an Offset,Length, Value On, Value Off

FSUIPC OFFSET 1 - Outputs
Sets an output ON.OFF based on an FSUIPC value.
You might use these for additional warning lights.
ie puts a light on when an offset = 16383
Step 1 : Press Assign next to FSUIPC OFFSET 1
Step 2 : Assign an output.
Step 3 : Add an Offset,Length, Value On

DC POWER BUS outputs
These are ideal for assigning to relays to control panel and general sim lights.
It allows you to make your sim go completely dark when the AC power is off.

Thanks Mark,
One of the interim test versions didn't provide the option to add the FSUIPC offsets. Since upgrading, all is good! Some really sweet features in the SysBoard Interface (ex. DC Power, Internal Links, etc.)

One further question though, what format does the tool want the values field? Binary? (00000001) / Multifunction? (704) / Letter qualifier? (b) ???

Can you give an example for something like the starter selonoid?
LIGHT=ENGINE L STARTER HOLD (Fsaddr:53F0 Bit:0)

Offset = 53F0
Length = 1 (Byte)
Value = b0 ????

Thanks, Steve

Hi Steve,

Could you explain a little about what you are trying to achieve ?

Generally if you are using the SYS Controller you probably won't need to use offsets or the FSUIPC_IO file.. (but there are always exceptions)

Using your starter switch example :

For the starter switches we would use the SYS Controller Output functions :
Start Valve Open Left
Start Valve Open Right


You would then wire the start switch 'hold' mechanism to a Relay card and assign those relay outputs to those Start Value output functions.
