fsx_posky_b747-400_panel_project_jeanne panel in FSX

Recommended Posts



I'm hoping someone can help me out.


I'm having an odd issue with the fsx_posky_b747-400_panel_project_jeanne panel in FSX as modified by Ken Wigginton.  I have contacted Ken but after his reply I'm still not sure what to do and am hoping someone might know.

Hello, Ken.


I'm hoping you can answer a question for me regarding the "fsx_posky_b747-400_panel_project_jeanne" panel in FSX.


It seems that I'm having an issue with the throttles.  One and two move independent but for some reason three and four are locked together.  If I try to move just three, both three and four move and adjust.  And if I try to move just four, both levers move but only thrust for three changes.


Do you think you can help me figure out what's going on?




I doubt that I can be of much help as I don't use variational throttle inputs.  The VC panel in this package uses one form of Ken Mitchell throttle .xml, which, if I read it correctly, is a three-input system with macroed clicks; and the 2D uses a four-input system tied to a uni-throttle control.  Ken is long retired from flightsim and I don't know "why" they are written that way, but he was pretty clever about MSFS' limitations and what could be done.  (In other words, I doubt that his coding is a "mistake".)  Good thin with .xml, of course, is anyone can open it with Notepad and read it and tinker with it for themselves.  Just save an unaltered copy so you have a fallback if things go haywire!




Any help from the group would be greatly appreciated.

This may be a dumb question, but could this be something to do with being able to select individual engines (E+1, 2 etc.) within the sim?

Not unless there is something unusual about the files that makeup this particular panel/throttle.  The examples given above happen when clicking/dragging on the throttle in the panel window or when using a GoFlight Throttle Quadrant.


(Other aircraft are okay.)
