The original starter switch will automatically switch from GRD to OFF when N2 reaches 56%.
If you take the offset 0896 (engine 1) and 092E (engine 2) which has values from 0-16384 (100%) then the 56% are the value of 9175.

Much more easy.... If your AddOn have a Offset that show us the Virtual Switch Position ( like PMDG) then you can Read This Offset.
If Switch is moved Automaticly in Sim from GRD to OFF then it change value of Offsret ( For example 0 to 1) .
Good Luck !

Are you able to show me (learn me) how to read the Offset values.
I am using PMDG 737NGX and also NGXu.
I have build the starter switch with an servo to return switch to OFF.

???

Thats the same like every other Offset....

Go in your Sim Folder.... Subfolder " /modules/fsuipc documents "
There you find the List for Standard Aircrafts and PMDG B737/777/747 ( Maby also 737"u" if you have newestr P3D FSUIPC V 5.xxxx )

There you find the needed Offsets....
For example the old B737NGX use this ....

iconQuote:

64FC 2 BYTE x 2 ENG_StartSelector(2) ---- 0: GRD 1: OFF 2: CONT 3: FLT
So 64FC -1 Byte INT is left switch.... And 64FD is Right switch

Good Luck !

Not till now.....
At the moment only for Inputs there are PReset Lists in Mobiflight.

Problem is.... A Output is verry individual.
Whatver you mount your servo Left or Right the needed Config must be different. If you use a Solenoid or a Springloaded Relais then its different again.
Same for LED.... Users who make a Hardware System for Lighttest etc need a other seting as users who use a software solution.

Finaly the only usefull thing in a list like this is the Offsetadress, Typ and Size. But the Important "Transform" and "Compare" and "Precondition" can not be supported Premade cause nearly everybody want a other system here.

Summary belive in me..... Its 100% more profitable and faster to use this Lists and create configs completly by hand ( also for PMDG Inputs ) as using Presets.
Good Luck !
