Offset PMDG Dim Panel Lights

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone
I wanted to build the Main Panel Bright and Bright Background, but I can not know the offset of the PMDG, also using the Leobodnar's BU0836x card what do i have to put potentiometers or encoders?
Thank's for the answers

There are no offsets to control anything in PMDG aircraft. Offsets relate to the sims own systems and values.

PMDG aircraft use "custom controls" (their own series of control numbers (or "events"), and these are listed in the.h document in their aircraft's SDK subfolder.

You can assign custom controls in FSUIPC. Just use the <custom control> selection and enter the number of that control.

Thanks Pete,
but should I use Potentiometers or Rotary Encoders for these panels?

Rotary controls are much easier to program / assign. Potentiometers are only really good for axis-type controls, and I doubt the the PMDG controls (assuming they exist?) are such. They are more likely to be simply "inc" and "dec" types (or maybe one control with the inc or dec indication as parameter) But you should check first.

I think those PMDG panel controls where you right- or left-click the mouse to increase or decrease use controls with paramters effectively giving the mouse parameter value for INC and DEC.

I'm afraid I don't have or use any PMDG aircraft myself.
