ON/OFF Control Assignments Issues



  • The on/off control assignments are not fully supported yet by version 0.30. Here are the outstanding issues I encountered with my Honeycomb peripherals:

    • FUEL PUMP: Only assignable through the least desirable TOGGLE FUEL PUMP function and which does not correspond to the kind of switch in the original cockpit. Should in addition be mappable using PUMP ON and PUMP OFF as well as SET PUMP.
    • ROT BCN: Only assignable through SET BEACON LIGHTS which temporarily freaks the switch out when used (which needs fixing in and of itself). Should in addition be mappable using BEACON LIGHTS ON and BEACON LIGHTS OFF.

    The remaining buttons of the 7-switch panel work as desired since version 0.30. Great job!

    Use the following for discrete control...and you'll be all set.

    CENTRE_LOWER_FUELPUMP (LVAR) (0 and 1 for off and on)
    CENTRE_LOWER_BCN_LIGHT (LVAR) (0 and 1 for off and on)

    It seems there is an issue with all the SET functions freaking out the buttons of the virtual cockpit when depressed on the peripheral.

    The problem is that I'd love the fuel pump to be mappable in game (as a SET and/or ON/OFF function).



  • The momentary toggle movement of the switch ("freaking out") when using the SET switch function on a Honeycomb yoke happens on all aircraft in MSFS, and is a bug in the sim and not this aircraft.



  • Bump for visibility. Is there anything special about the beacon lights that it isn't mapped like the other switches with on/off?

    The beacon light control code is identical to all the others so we're investigating if the issue is caused by MSFS/SimConnect.

    There is also no way to intercept the fuel pump on/off events using SimConnect in a WASM gauge at the moment.

    This might be an MFS-wide issue, where the button functions are not hooked up correctly in the code.
