  1. Pete, As usual, I sincerely appreciate you taking the time to help me think through this. I will definitely give some thought to interpolation. Will also look at some of the altitude equations to see if I can calculate static pressure from altitude and temp. Thanks again Pete/John for all your years of support! Robert
  2. John, Thank you very much for your response! What you are experiencing aligns with what I'm experiencing, and it makes sense that this wouldn't be a limitation caused by FSUIPC. So question is, is there another way (or offset) I should be reading to get the static pressure in real time? Robert
  3. Awesome! I tried your suggestion for total air pressure and it appears that was the answer I needed, thank you very much! I didn't think about Bernoulli's Equation. This solves my issue for Ram / Total Air Pressure! Still trying to figure out the Static Pressure issue. I would expect it to change proportional to the altitude like in the real aircraft. It seems to be doing that, just with really low resolution. Unlike the dynamic pressure, which is updating in near real-time (low-mid millisecond rate), the static pressure still seems to be updating about every second or so. Robert
  4. Good day, I am able to successfully read most FSX offsets at low-mid millisecond rates (pitch, bank, altitude, heading, etc.). I'm using this data to feed real aircraft parts and the data has been working great. However, my altimeter and airspeed indicators use static pressure and ram air pressure not altitude and airspeed. Here are my issues: Static Port Pressure Issue I wasn't sure exactly which offset to use, so I'm using 0x28C8 (Ambient air pressure). This appears to produce the right value, but at a rate too slow to use. Even in FSInterrogate, when I poll this value, it only changes about every second or so, unlike altitude and other values, which are super smooth. I get the same behavior when I use offsets 0x0020 or 0x0B4C to read altitude instead of 0x0570. Ram Air Pressure Question Again, I wasn't entirely sure which offset to use, so I'm using 0x30D8 (Dynamic Pressure). The value seems to correlate with the airspeed, but I'm not sure if this is what I should be reading for ram air pressure. Thoughts are appreciated. Thanks very much for any guidance, Robert P.S. - Pete thanks for the great product and for ALL your years supporting it.
  5. Makes perfect since! Thanks a bunch for your fast response! Robert
  6. Hey Pete, I'm having trouble getting the Master Battery switch and the Fuel Boost Pump switch working properly. With the Landing Gear, landing lights, etc. I noticed there is a setting such as "Landing Gear Up" "Landing Gear Down", but for boost pumps it says, "Toggle Boost Pumps" and similar for the master battery alternator toggle. In the button pressed parameter I put 1, and in the button released parameter I put a 0. I also tried them the other way around, but for some reason, the switch reacts backwards depending on where the switch was positioned on sim startup. What is the correct way for me to setup the switch, so like the landing gear, pressed is always on and released is always off for the fuel pumps and master battery alternator. Thanks much! Robert Prather
