assigned switch not working

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I've successfully mapped every switch in my cockpit setup to the 737NGX bar one.

On my G-throttle there are two fuel cutoff switches which both have one switch at the idle position. I mapped eng 2 idle and cutoff successfully but the same for eng1 does not work.

I can see the switch in LINDA being activated but it doesn't move in the sim.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

 

Martin

 

ps I tried mapping this function to another button but that didn't work either

Hi Martin

 

I have had a look at the functions you mentioned using LINDA 2.5.7 and PMDG 737NGX module 3.2. All appear to be operating correctly to move the Engine Cutoff/Idle levers using functions:

 

NGX_ENG1_idle and NGX_ENG1_cutoff

NGX_ENG2_idle and NGX_ENG2_cutoff

 

I have also checked the module code and I can see nothing that would prevent the ENG1 functions working.

 

I was able to assign all 4 functions to buttons on my joystick. Make sure that there are no assignments in FSUIPC or FSX for the same buttons.

That's weird. I always had this mapped in FSUIPC. I deleted the FSUIPC.ini top get a clean slate and eng2 cutoff works perfectly. It's not the switch because I tested with another switch.

I'll have to use the PMDG keystroke assignment then. Pity.

Aaaah, no more panic. After restarting pc and LINDA everything worked flawlessly.

 

Happy, happy
