Hi, I wonder if anyone could help me please?

I'm trying to use a rotary encoder to change the default heading bug in FSX.

I have the encoder wired up correctly and added but, I can't work out what to add in the settings.

I watched a youtube video but, the required item was listed in the FSUIPC offsets whereas it isnt now.

I don't know what to put in the various boxes to make it work.

Thank you in advance for any help.

Step1 Confirm Hardware is fine.
Enable the Logging Mode (Settings).
Then you will see if you turn the Encoder if correctly LEFT and RIGHT commands are detected.

Step2 Confirm Software is connected.
Can you read data from Sim or do other Inputs .... e.g. a Button for Parking Brake ?
So tell is if you basically can talk to the sim.

If both is confirmed working then you just need the right Input Type.
Here the used Aircraft is the key.... E.g. a Stock C172 use other Events as a AddOn like PMDG.

So google and test.... If you still struggle tell us what aircraft you use.... Then we can search together about the right Event.
Good Luck !
