I'm having trouble figuring out how to set up the Annunciator Test Switch for the A2A C172.
How do I figure out what offset to use? Is there a list somewhere? Am I looking at this the wrong way?

You can search for a2a c172 Lvars and will find it. Here is the results,
http://www.a2asimulations.com/Cockpitbuilders/A2A%20C172%20Trainer%20-%20Variable%20list.pdf
Note that a2a do not use standard offset, similar to aerosoft, you need to write own script to read and write Lvars through FSUIPC .
Again, search google and you will find info. about how to.
Good luck.

I mean a2a similar to aerosoft, you need to manipulate Lvars through FSUIPC . Read the first tutorial about Lvars in this forum to get generally what need to be done.

Thank you for responding to my post.
I will read through the tutorial on LVARS.

Also thank you so pointing me to the A2A Variable list. That will be very helpful.
I notice that the Annunciator switch is not on the A2A Variable list.
Is it not an accessible variable? Also the Actual annunciator lights, are those accessible?

Searching a2a forum and nothing come up for c172 anunciator switch, but for c182, it is as follow;
L:AnnunciatorPanelTestSwitch,enum (0 = Night, 1 = Day, 2 = Test and is spring loaded to return to 1)
It may work for c172, but you need to try out.
I don't fly c172. So I am not sure about it.
