Knobster not working as expected

#1 Post by pinnocenzi »

Hi,

Something is wrong with my knobster. I use a C172 panel, i select for instance the HDG button on my touchscreen, the button highlights itself in yellow. I then turn the knob on the knobster, the HDG button actually rotates, but nothing happens on the headings. Tried all buttons on various instruments, altimeter, OBS and HDG, same result. Button rotates OK, but no effect on the instrument itself...

Any idea ?

Thanks,
Pascal.

Are any of the other instruments actually responding to what the sim is doing? It sounds like you have no plug-in installed or a sim connection issue.

Nothing wrong with the knobster if the knob is rotating corrrctly. The knob rotation is local to the instrument but the heading bug rotation is driven by data from the sim.

Yes the instruments are reacting and displaying appropriately. In fact if I disable the knobster, and use the mouse, I have the same behaviour, so you are right the knobster is not thecause of the issue. AirManager says, Connected to FS 2020

Reinstalled the FS2020 plugin that for some reason was not active at all... works just fine now :)
Learned something today :)

Thanks for your help !
