Asking GoFlight for help will most likely be a fruitless effort since it appears they are not responding to support requests in their fourm.

That said, you need to provide a little more information as to what it is that you are trying to accomplish (i.e. what is the T8/P8 switch supposed to do when you flip/push it?).

In a nutshell, if the switch changes a value in an offset somewhere in FS, then you set up a condition to test the offset that would equal a true or false (off or on) result and then configure the LED to light if the condition is true. It is a little confusing (I had to read the documentation several times to "get it"), however, the examples in the INI file helped a lot. Also, if you do a search in the GF forum for GFDisplay, you should find some good examples there that you can use.

Thanks for getting back to me on that matter ..i will try and explane asbest as i can what

i want to do with my goflight systems ..

ok just to let you know how i installed the gfdisplay i unzipped it to the same pc as FS so a folder called GFD and run it and it showed the GoFlight systems all the ones i have and all software 1-5 installed

the first thing is what do i do with the FSUIPC -BUTTENS dll in the gfdisplay ,

"how do i get the offsets for the buttens that i have setup in fsuipc "

what i want to do is set the buttens or switch on my goflight modules" that i can do" and all i want is the light on the module to come on as well when it is turned to on do i need offsets to do this with my LEVEL-D so its like i have set a butten on the GFT8 or GFP8 to have the smoken

sign to come on i hit the butten i hair the ping ,,the no smokeing is on but no light on the GFP8 i try this from the site here but no luck ,,and yes i read all the docs and still i cant understand it

Needs=B E


L3 C0

so again i ask for your help in the matter please give me lights

The offset you are using is for the Pitot heat. Looks like you forgot the left bracket in the conditions area and you need an "=" for each light or display. I have made the changes below.


0=X029C U8 =1 ;


Needs=B E



For simple on/off conditions you could also use the following:


Needs=B E


L3=X029C U8 ;"ON" if non zero

pseizinger as i said i use the level-d aircraft and some goflight ..i set a button/switch to do some thing it can be any thing from lights to engen start and thats ok. and button/switchs work find just no lights come on the goflight modules so thats where GFdisplay come in i know i have to edit the ini file and set the condition to have the lights come on the module and off when turned to off lights or what ever i have set to a button/switch. so is there a offset list where can i get it .

thx kevin

Sorry, I don't think Level D use FSUIPC offsets for their switches and values. They do provide a software development kit though, so maybe someone's implemented something. Are you sure GoFlight don't support it?
