  1. Honestly, I'm blind. 🤦‍♂️ l was searching all over that document trying to find anything about processes that may be file name dependent. Thank you for pointing it out to me! Also, I understand the automated process of the [LuaFiles] section. I only tried to manually set that value when leaving it alone didn't run the Lua file and then I noticed that it doesn't delete Lua files that no longer exist. Now that I know my problem, it all makes sense.
  2. Thanks for the reply! I have done exactly that. 1. Renamed the file to ThrottleManagerPMDG777.lua 2. Add [Auto.B777] 1=Lua ThrottleManagerPMDG777 to the .ini file. (Yes, the profile name is B777) 3. Load up the 777, and it's not working. In fact, the LuaToggle for throttle manager is gone in the button assignments page. Edit: I also made sure to change the name under the [LuaFiles]. Even using [Auto], the Lua does not function. The log shows that it does load, but there must be something inside the actual Lua file that is dependent on the file name.
  3. Hello guys, I recently started using the ThrottleManager.lua in P3DV4. The problem I found was that if the reverse ratio is set to the default value of "1", you will reach max reverse in your aircraft before your throttles reach 100% travel. This makes it a bit harder to physically feel how much reverse you are using, especially in powerful turboprops. While I understand that real reverse zones are shorter than forward thrust zones, I find that using 100% of the physical throttle travel for reverse is a more controlled feel for flight sim. So I decided to work out exactly what the values are and put them here for anyone looking for the same experience. I will update it as I go along with different aircraft. All these values are tested on the Saitek Throttle Quadrant, but it *should* work with all throttles since it is a ratio value. Each entry in the list will be in the format of "Name of aircraft" and [throttle reverse ratio value] "FSLabs A32X" [1] *do not change this value. Instead, go to the MCDU and set your detents there.* "PMDG 737NGXu" [0.372] "PMDG 777X" [0.250] "RealAir Turbine Duke V2" [0.259] If you want to do this yourself, simply open throttle manager lua file and edit the value. If your physical throttle reaches max before the virtual reverser reaches max, increase this value; if the virtual reversers reach max before your physical throttle, decrease this value. It's not technical work, just trial and error. P.S. If anyone knows how to make these values profile specific like joystick calibrations are, please do help me out.
