Two of my FSBUS bugs fixed!

Recommended Posts

Well, actually it was my fault on one of them, and the other it's easy to fix by just editting a file.The first one concerns what I have posted before :"2. When any kind of input occupies BIT 3 or BIT 7 (subIDs 3, 7 ) any trigger of either turns on BOTH those bits. This occurs in every row/bank and on either input bit. I.e. if I connect a simple push button to subID 3 and leave 7 unconnected, when I press thebutton and monitor the key press both subIDs 3 & 7 become active. Same happens when the button is connected to subID 7 and leave subID 3 unconnected. Bot subIDs 3 & 7 become active."After heavy checks with high magnification lens and new batteries on my multimeter, I found that ALL my key cards had a short btn the two routes of subIds 3 & 7!!! How you say? Because I changed the PCB for my use and moved the subIds 4-7 in sequence with the rest so I won't be confused. So the subids on my key cards are sequenced 01234567 and not01237654 as with the original. Also I moved a few of the banks a bit to allow use of ide-type cabletape and PC connectors directly on the pcb.If anyone is interested to the re-design, or Dirk, if you want to put it up on your site, let me know.The other one has to do with the com & nav swaps.It seems the 'bit' declaration doesn't work properly. Whenever I pushed a button to swap nav1 (for example), all the radios swapped at the same time!Hunting down and experimenting I solved this by defining the same FSUIPC offset in the FSU.ini file for each radio swap entry and I8 type.Then from within FSBUS router I changed the value that each swap switch gives according to what I want to change.1 for Nav2, 2 for Nav1, 4 for Com1, 16 for Com2.This works fine and now only the selected radio swaps frequencies.George DorkofikisAthens, Greece
