Re: Batt Warning Light - Reset on Battery Switch

Nearly one week from the initial message of the OP & no reply from him/her. Typical. :x
Sometimes one wonders why spend time to help people like this one. Lesson learnt.

Re: My King Air 200 DIY Simulator

Very nice work, and a lot of creativity on 3D printing.
Can I ask you more details about the annunciators, what did you use for the annunciators lights legend?

Re: Strange potentiometer behaviour after AM 4.0 upgrade

Aha, the infamous ANDS & SAND: accelerate North, decelerate South!
I didn’t dare to offer to put into the casing a DOUBLE gimbal to emulate as well the acceleration factor, which I didn’t knew FSX emulated! :o
Very well done already!

Well done Francois, and a clever use of the optical sensor.
Didn’t know that it was possible to have the stepper run in « endless rotation » mode.

To be picky (you know me 8-) ), the compas rose should probably be mounted on a gimbal to stay horizontal during turns?

Re: Cessna 208 complete panels for MFS2020, design project.

Guys. I usually don’t shime in a similar case but I felt here that you should be warned. The OP is quite familiar crying for help in Air Manager, with having great expectations way more higher than his current programming skills and really wanting to run before learning how to walk. And he basically...

Re: Batt Warning Light - Reset on Battery Switch

Hi Without more information(addon used, type of airplane, for the sim platform I assume it’s FSX), it’s gonna be difficult to help, but from what I see, the answer is in part in the question. You are only subscribing to the ELECTRICAL BATTERY IS CHARGING state. But the annunciator BATTERY WARNING LI...

Re: Vid6606 Stepper Driver with Air Manager

You’ll have to implement the driver with Message port, using the proper library. There is no plug and play solution in AM to use the vid6606

Re: Canvas Textures

Yes, the canvas feature has been a huge improvement introduced in AM v3.x (remember my lame attempt at an interim graphic library anyone?) thanks Corjan!

It is not a real war TBH, As said previously, the key here is « the right tool for the right task ».

Re: Canvas Textures

And to have a brushed metal aspect, just search for "seamless textures" on the Net, and add it to the textures folder of skinman.
Add a metal effect light in one click and voilà!
