  1. Good afternoon, I was talking to someone (a fellow blind pilot), who said that the add-on that he uses (called Talking Flight Monitor, which is an accessibility addon for FS/P3d) can't detect the annunciators for localizer and glideslope capture in the PMDG aircraft. Are there any specific offsets for these annunciators in the 737/747/777? I looked through the offset mapping PDF files in the FSUIPC folder and can't find any that would seem to fit the bill. I'm asking on behalf of Jason Fayre, the TFM developer; since the project is open-source, I may be able to code in the detection of these annunciators if it is technically possible. Thanks in advance for any help.
  2. You said round down to an integer. Are you saying follow the standard math rounding rules, or a simple truncation?
  3. Hi all, I'm working with Jason Fayre on the Talking Flight Monitor project, the accessibility add-on for FSX and Prepar3d. One of our users asked for the ability to set spoilers/speedbrakes to an arbitrary percentage; in the sim, the keyboard command (slash key by default) either sets them to full or off, with no way to fine-tune their extension. The notes for the offset (0BD0) say that a value of 4800 is armed, but that 5620 is the minimum you can set that actually causes extension. 5620 is 7% extended, and 16383 is 100%. I'm fairly good at math, but I'm confused by the snippet that says: "The percentage extension is the proportion of the distance in the range 4800 to 16383..." I can't figure out, for the life of me, a good formula that can be used to convert an arbitrary percentage value into the value to write to the offset. I consider myself a decent coder, but the way FSUIPC and SimConnect represent things can sure make for some difficult calculations. :) Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Tyler
