POSKY 737NG and panel by Paul Scarratt (PS Panels)

Recommended Posts

Hi all!I'm trying to set up the B738 from POSKY with the great panel from Paul Scarratt (setup.zip here at AVSIM).In the panel readme it says that the [LIGHT] section of the aircraft.cfg probably needs some changes to fit with the panel light switches. But I don't see what changes...Did anyone modify the [LIGHT] section with good results? If yes, please post it here.Many thanks!J.R.

J.R.:Here's that section from my aircraft.cfg file. I'm pretty sure I made the recommended changes, but I can't find Paul's documentation on my computer right now, so please check it first.

JR-No, that's the -700, but as I recall the only changes necessary had to do with renumbering the light TYPES, not their positions, so that the switches operated the correct lights -- if that's what you're getting at.

Ok, just took her for a test flight. All lights 'n switches work fine! :( You're right, it's only about renumbering the light types. Thanks for your great help, Chuck! :( GreetsJ.R.
