Nice!Don't be saddened by this forum not enjoying your results, it's just that here people looks more for big realistic things, than home made panels :)Are you using "lava" colour displays?In the photo they do not look nor amber nor red...

Ah i c.I checked the first movie and there indeed you can see ( and hear ) that these are no rot-encs but just rotary switches.Is it the fsbus soft that allows to use these as rotary encoders ?Seem to work great though I don't like them too much cuz the detents are way to strong.

FSBus does indeed cater for these rotary switches, as do most other input boards.And as for the detents, remove the cover and shorten the spring slightly. And get ready to catch the little ball bearings!
