Hello and greetings to all:

I am manufacturing the light panel of the Boeing 737-800 ng of PMDG.

I have configured the lights of the two-position switches on-on.

I need help to configure the lights with three-position switches on-off-on or in your case on-on-on.

I request your help to configure the retractable lights, position lights, engine start and the apu.

Thank you very much in advance.

Hi Maruri,

welcome to MobiFlight.

I have this configuratins working on my PMDG.

Try the following settings:

If you use a three position switch, wire the GND-pin to the middle and the gear-up-pin to the bottom-pin and the gear-down-pin to the top-pin of your switch.
This is the mechanical work in the switch. The contact is closed to the lower/middle pins if the switch is up and vice versa.

Parameter for PMDG B737NG are:

Gear_Up: ON PRESS EventID 66079 Parameter -2147483648, ON RELEASE EventID 74183 Parameter 536870912
Gear_Down: ON PRESS EventID 66080 Parameter 536870912, ON RELEASE EventID 74183 Parameter -2147483648

Retractable Lights_Left: OFF ON PRESS EventID 69743 Parameter 0, ON RELEASE EventID 69743 Parameter 1
Retractable Lights_Left: ON ON PRESS EventID 69743 Parameter 2, ON RELEASE EventID 69743 Parameter 1

For the right Retractable use EventID 69744 and the same Parameters in sequence.

For Position lights: STEADY ON PRESS EventID 69755 Parameter 0, ON RELEASE EventID 69755 Parameter 1
For STROBE&STEADY ON PRESS EventID 69755 Parameter 2, ON RELEASE EventID 69755 Parameter 1

Engine Start IGN_L ON PRESS EventID 69752 Param 0, ON RELEASE EventID 69752 Param 1
IGN_R ON PRESS EventID 69752 Param 2, ON RELEASE EventID 69752 Param 1

APU_OFF ON PRESS EventID 69750 Param 0, ON RELEASE EventID 60750 Param 1
APU_ON ON PRESS EventID 69750 Param 2, ON RELEASE EventID 769750 Param 1

You can see that the actual OFF - ON/START/L/R position is always 0 or 2 and the middle position always gets parameter 1.
If you understand this principle, you are a big step ahead!

Make sure you have the Sevicepack 1D installed for the PMDG and the suffix in the 737.ini of the PMDG directory

iconCode:
[SDK]
EnableDataBroadcast = 1


stands.

Please report if you got it up and running.
Grüße,
Stephan
