Hello,

I have recently started my journey to building my 737NG home cockpit. I am really enjoying the build so far.
I have figured out how to use arduino and mobflight to control switches and LEDs.

I have just finished the Captains glareshield with the Fire Warning, Master Caution and 6 pack. All are working fine, however I am having issues with the six pack button.
In the sim you left click and hold the 6 pack it will light up and recall any warnings. Once you let go it will go out leaving only the recalled warnings if any. However if I click the actual button and hold it will light up however won't go out again when I release my finger. I have to then go into the Virtual cockpit and click the 6 pack to get it to go off.

I am currently using PMDG event id 69981 with parameter 1. This works on the Master Caution and Fire Warning how ever doesn't seem to work on the six pack.

I am running PMDG NGXU, P3d V4.5 with up to date FSUIPC, Mobiflight etc.

Has anyone got any ideas?

Cheers,

J

Hi
Some funtions are a bit different.... I don´t know why PMDG do it so.

But your situation looks a bit strange.

Please Confirm.....
In theory the SixPack is a SWITCH so it is not a momentary button ( cause it can be hold down) .
So it should work with bool parameters .... "0" for not pressed and "1" for pressed.

You say....

Its logical you need a release for a switch ( like for every switch) BUT it also should work with the Parameter release ( 0-Zero) in that case also like every other switch.

Sure... If you Press it with a 1 Parameter and release it with a "Left Mouse Release" it should work, too. But thats a mix of two systems !
If you like.... Please confirm it also work with Release by Parameter 0
Good Luck !
