  1. Oh, that's sneaky!!! FS9 makes this the only 0 based numbered item!!! (read: Thanks Jan, commencing self-inflicted forehead slapping now!!) *grin*
  2. After a search of the forum, I see no answer to getting the (A:EXIT OPEN:2,percent) to work. I know Jan espouses sending the info to an L:var in a click event, but in the scenario I have, that's not an option... only trying to read the state/percentage of Exit 2.

(if it is/was a particularly expensive plane, I of course have to add in the "cost of gas getting to the movie rationalization" (patent pending) *grin*)

    C-130 Manuals?

    Here's another company to try...http://www.flight-manuals-on-cd.com/C130.html(I've never had any dealings with them, so I have no idea how this company is)

    C-130 Manuals?

    The free upgrade was supposed to replace the pdf with a proprietary reader. (that's why I never really pursued it... that and I obtained a hard copy of the -1 I wanted, while waiting for my original order.) As I said, I cannot recommend them. If you run into -1's on CD, on something like E-bay, other comapnies often advertise they don't have any of these hassles. I believe those disclaimers refer to Eflight.

    C-130 Manuals?

    I have not had a good experience with eflight. I only received my order after calling the credit card phone number for over a month and leaving messages. No answer to emails. Finally I caught someone at home and then they did send the cd. The cd was fine, but the copy protection is a pain in that a new adobe reader barfs on the file you need to install in adobe to read the protected pdf.Then last summer they said they'd upgrade everyone's cd. They didn't.Perhaps my experience is unique, but I recommend avoiding them and getting a real -1 from somewhere else like E-bay. Also note, there was at least one other -1 on CD company out there, but I forget the name/URL.

    If so, then I've missed it. *grin*
  11. I have the NZ Cat group CD, it doesn't work well in FS9. Mike Stone's is fine and has the best price, but personally I want a VC. I love the Alphasim PBY. And, I've had nothing but good in dealing with Alphasim, so there wasn't much question in my mind when I purchased it. *grin*

So you'll end up with a fight, probably making the logical throttle bounce between 0% and 10%'ish.Of course, I've not tried any of the above, so your mileage may vary.
  14. For your project I'd use (A:sim on ground,bool) as a test to automatically "raise" the gear. Once the "gear" is "up" (dolly dropped), then I'd constantly test the gear handle for staying in the up position. Then if the gear handle is not "up," I'd automatically move it/trigger it/toggle it back up. I'd also set the gauge frequency rather high to avoid as much "dolly magically returning animation" as possible.
