Hi Peter,

I'm asking for you for your thoughts and advice. FSUIPC (registered) has become my friend over the last years and I feel confident using both controls and offsets. Have a lot of outside hardware (knobs, switches and stuff). I have asked the following on several forums and hundreds of "views", not one reply. If I asked the question in a way that no one can comprehend please let me know. I think that you might be able to help me or at least point me in some direction that I might learn how to tackle this problem. Here's the question:

I'm having trouble trying to figure out the lighting system. Friendly Panels and TSS sound installed and I am now flying its little tail off. Now, want to get the lights reconfigured to the actual switches. Right now they are somewhat all ganged up on just a few switches. Taxi light switch doesn't work, but the light comes on even with the gear up if you have landing lights on. Logo and cabins lights come on only when you switch on the panel switch.

I would like to sort this out. Is there any way to "ungang" grouped lights to their individual switches on the panel?

I have looked at the Aircraft config files, but my understanding is too limited to start making changes in those files. Is there something that would help me understand how to sort this out. I know I can add outside switches for some of the lights using FSUIPC (registered), but even then the Logo, cabin and panel are all ganged together.

Kind Regards

There is certainly a separate taxi light switch and the others. Whether they are all implemented separately or at all on every aircraft is another matter. Here's the list from the List of FSX Controls installed in your FSUIPC Documents folder:

TOGGLE_BEACON_LIGHTS 66239

TOGGLE_CABIN_LIGHTS 66579

TOGGLE_LOGO_LIGHTS 66376

TOGGLE_NAV_LIGHTS 66379

TOGGLE_RECOGNITION_LIGHTS 66377

TOGGLE_TAXI_LIGHTS 66240

TOGGLE_WING_LIGHTS 66378

LANDING_LIGHTS_OFF 66060

LANDING_LIGHTS_ON 66059

LANDING_LIGHTS_SET 66061

LANDING_LIGHTS_TOGGLE 65751

PANEL_LIGHTS_OFF 66057

PANEL_LIGHTS_ON 66056

PANEL_LIGHTS_SET 66058

PANEL_LIGHTS_TOGGLE 65750

If they are truly "ganged together" in the specific aircraft I suspect that'll be stuck in the code for that aircraft.
