AM 4.2.1 Hardware not working after upgrade

AM 4.2.1 Hardware not working

Running from the create/edit tab with a hardware test instrument, AM is not seeing any hardware actions. The Arduinos are showing as connected.
Worked perfectly in 4.2

Some further information, hardware does work for a short while but starts to get laggy and eventually quits.

Hi,

What plugin version you on?

Should be. Yes the 4.1 is broken

Yes the 4.1 is broken so use the old beta 4.2

As mentioned in a different topic. These issues come down to scripting issues. So... did you make your own scripts/instruments?

Hi Ralph,

To test 4.2.1 I simply have the arduinos powered on and are reading single button pushes from a single validated test instrument running in the Creat/Edit tab. Xplane is not running so the plugin is not the issue. I do see button pushes but they are very delayed and eventually crease.

If you use just one button? Did you flash the Arduino(s) with the latest firmware?

Will try, wasn’t aware a reflash was needed going to 4.2.1.

Not necessarily. Depends when was the last time. But it is always to confirm such things when problems come up.
