Re: Instruments show NO IMAGE FOUND after installing 4.1

Re: Map issue

Been using the maps for a while now and they worked fine until the latest AM update. The map LUA script works fine in edit mode but when I place it on a panel it MUST be located in the upper left corner of the panel or I get nothing. A full panel map works fine... Bug or something I need to add to t...

Re: FS2020 event issue

In case anyone is interested, I got it to work finally! As I said, I had an Arduino leonardo collecting dust so I programmed it to send the keyboard commands to the PC and another Micro connected to the AM laptop connected to the Leo back to back, that is, I used the Micro's digital pins as outputs ...

Re: FS2020 event issue

Well, I did manage to get AM (running my little control box "instrument") to talk to an Arduino Micro connected back-to-back with a Leonardo I had sitting on the shelf - the Leo sends the keyboard data to the sim PC in response to a signal from the Micro. The non-MSFS2020 PC apps I've test...

Re: FS2020 event issue

Got another probably useless idea! It's a hardware kludge but it might actually work. RaspPi connected to AM. Pi LED outputs connected to BU0836 (or equiv) to simulate individual pushbutton switches...AM's hw_led_add and hw_led_set might actually work...of course that's TWO more HW components...or m...

Re: FS2020 event issue

Why do it? Only because I can (maybe??) :D Just wanted a software way to do the same thing my hardware already does. No other reason. Yes, I could easily do it another way but adding the controlbox "instrument" to a panel seems like a nice thing to do in case of hardware failure. Plus soft...

Re: FS2020 event issue

Been thinking about ways around the issue - at least for keyboard commands. All I want to do is emulate keyboard entries - that's all my blackbox basically does - fortunately the BU0836 is recognized by MSFS so it worked with no problem. Here's my thought: every AM instrument has a subfolder labeled...

Re: FS2020 event issue

Tnx, apparently events like pause toggling, return to main, etc, also don't work outside the sim. I wonder if there's a list of which ones work and which don't - sure save a lot of trouble!! I can understand when aircraft-specific events don't work (even in the AC you pay for - the Aerosoft Twotter ...

Re: FS2020 event issue

I was wondering about that! Heck of a note when they publish things that don't work! Maybe when a far distant update is released.

tnx for the feedback, now I won't have to waste my time!

FS2020 event issue

To avoid using the keyboard as much as possible, I built a small hardware pushbutton box that connects through a BU0836 controller - works fine but I'd like to emulate it on AirManager. The box calls up saved custom viewpoint positions, moves the eyepoint, toggles pause, etc. The BU0836 is recognize...
