Hello, firstly i would like to say MobiFlight is really great and helpful program, thank you for that!
I have a little problem, I bought a Vibration Motor and tried to connect it to MobiFlight as a LED Output (because this motor has low and high condition). And it works!!! This is so nice.
But the real problem is that I can't find Offset for PMDG737 for Stall. I don't even know how STALL is working in PMDG (maybe is it the stall test button on? - BUT FOR SURE it is NOT synchronised with STALL in FSX - you can see that the stall in PMDG is working when you don't have the red text in corner "STALL" [or even after long time])
I found this Offset: "036C 1 Stall warning (0=no, 1=stall) " , but as I said it is not synchronised with PMDG - it is in fsx stall mode.
I found also this in PMDG_NGX_SDK.h

"#define EVT_OH_WARNING_TEST_STALL_1_PUSH (THIRD_PARTY_EVENT_ID_MIN + 303)
#define EVT_OH_WARNING_TEST_STALL_2_PUSH (THIRD_PARTY_EVENT_ID_MIN + 304)"

but I don't know how to add this to Mobiflight.
Any suggestions how to solve this problem? Thank you in advance! :)

Hi
I not try out myself this offset.... But it seems its the only one. PMDG not support a own offset as i know.

You say...
icongaddemyt:

- BUT FOR SURE it is NOT synchronised with STALL in FSX - you can see that the stall in PMDG is working when you don't have the red text in corner "STALL" [or even after long time])



Pretty sure the Stall TEST is out of these sequence... So your PMDG will shake the yokes whatever there is no stall..... Thats the same system like a Lighttest is work.... here a light is illuminated whatever the function is not on (And the corespondending offset is still 0 )

So please if you like to observe that system.... Readout Offset 036C 1 Byte INT .... Check it in Mobiflight Windows or simply set it to a LEDto better see it.
Then start a flight with you pmdg.... Get in a save altitude like 20.000 ft.... And then reduce power and pitch up.
Please tell us what happend.... Does the STALL in PMDG come same time or come later or before the FSX Stall. And same question about ending of stall.
If its non sync can you tell us something about the time between or about the speeds that need to stall ?
Good Luck !

Thank you for your reply.
STALL in FSX is hmmm, a little stupid :D I mean it is not realistic and it comes after PMDG stall warning. If you do it really fast, the fsx stall system will not be on. Sometimes you can get really long stall in PMDG, but the "fsx's stall" will not turn on. The system in PMDG is more realistic and is earlier.

OK.

As i said... I not try out myself.

Sounds like the "FSX Stall" simply means that you are STALL at the moment ( So the moment when you start to loose the flow on the wings)
But sure
The Stall Warning will/must occure BEFORE the flow is brokeup.... So "long" time before you realy stall.

Not sure but i think you can confirm this with some tests.... Stall the PMDG.... Warning will be come in PMDG and Offset is still 0. Then check the moment when Offset come to "1"
I think exactly THEN your aircraft start to loose flow and start increase descent rate.

****
Summary... Then i see no way to solve this.
I Recommend to put a request in the PMDG Forum. Ask the support for a solution or maby better to include in the future a Offset that will show the "Shaker Status" of PMDG internal System.
Good Luck !

Sorry for refreshing topic, but I don't think it needs new one.

Does anyone know if in NGXu (new update for P3D) this offset has been added?
