SimConnect Gen toggle

Recommended Posts

I would like to use real toggle switches for generator on and off. The only event I can find that write to FSX is "TOGGLE_ALTERNATOR1". Is there any other way to set the generator switch?ThanksDave

Is there any other way to set the>generator switch?No. As with many FS functions (many of them are toggles, rather than "Sets", or separate Ons and Offs), if you want to program a real on-off toggle (latching) switch rather than a momentary push button you only have two choices:1. Put up with having to get your switches in sync each time you start a new flight, or2. Read the current state (as a SimConnect variable, or SimVar) and make the action depend upon that.This has been so since I can remember. The switching via offsets in FSUIPC does it by method 2 of course.RegardsPete

PeteI was afraid that would be the answer. Option 2 looks doable.Thanks as always for your advice.Dave
