I can have a look at the Logs, if something non-normal is visible there.

Sure, here they are: StreamDeck logPilotsDeck log

- PMDG's Data Broadcast is not enabled

It is, and all the displays/ LEDs on the hardware devices based on MobiFlight platform are working fine. Besides, the values are not showing on the default AC's (like COM Radio button on the default Cessna).

- Wrong Syntax / Options for Offsets (incorrect Type/Length, BCD Decode not enabled)

Offsets tried as "6C14" and "0x6C14" with BCD Decode on and off; LVAR as "DOOR_annunFWD_ENTRY" as defined in PMDG 737 SDK.

- Used "as admin" for StreamDeck Software / Plugin (or maybe your Setup even requires running both as admin - there was once a Case)

The Stream Deck software is run "as admin". I'll try running the plugin as admin as well.

One additional thing that comes into my mind is that the name of my user account is written in Cyrillic letters. Not sure if it could be the reason...

The Log confirms my Guess: wrong Syntax. You have to at least provide the Offset-Length also. Depending on the Offset also the Type and signed/unsigned.
Check the Readme
Try to confirm if the L-Var really exists (there is a log lvars script in the Example Folder) - maybe they have a different Name than documented (had such discrepancies myself with QualityWings 787 for Example)?

Maybe first try to run the StreamDeck software normally - it runs perfectly fine when installed and run as the normal User. Don't understand why you run it as admin.
If that also does not help, try running both as admin.

I don't think that is the Reason - it seems the Plugin was installed fine since it is starting and connecting normally. And that are the only Occasions where the Path would be relevant.

Thanks a lot, I'll check that.

Many thanks again! As usual, the RTFM rule works (if nothing else helps, Read The F...ng Manual😁). Adding the Offset Length did the trick.

Please keep up the great work that you are doing for the community!

Hello Fragtality!

One more question. As I realized, only positive values of the variables from P3D offsets are displayed properly (I've tried Display Value and Display Gauge actions with Vertical Speed and Stab Trim Position offsets). When the value goes negative the display jumps to 65XXX- type values. Is there a workaround or maybe I'm missing something again? Should I provide the Log files?

Oh yes! It's unsigned by default, so I should have defined the offset address as 0BC2:2:i:s... Thanks a lot!
