HI Guys, I would like to know if there were any mods that was done to be able to use the Analog pins as digital pins on the Mega board. Its ok if its not but I just wanted to know for my future planning.

Thanks!

Hi Mad,

actual you can use 50 pins. Sebastian planned to use the analog pins as digital ones. Maybe it is realized with the next release.

The pins that are available in the drop down.

I have prepared the support for the analog pins so that you can use them as digital pins. This will come with the next release. I plan to release before thanksgiving.
Have a great day!
Sebastian

Thanks Sebastian for your hard work and dedication. It will be awsome to be able to soon use those analogue pins as digital pins. Thanks for Mobiflight!

Thanks Pizman82 and StephanHo also for your hard work helping us all with our problems.

What a great community Guys. Its really appreciated.

Best Regards,

Mario

I have used the digital pins for mobiflight with PMDGfanrastic..
with the new release do I just choose an anlog pin and it will be recognised in mobiflght or do I have to do some other stuff for the analog pin to work for an offset or event as digital pin on arduino mega 2560 r3

.... Ps great software IVe been helping out a bit here https://www.737diysim.com/pmdg737mobiflight

Hallo there,

having now the posibility to use the analog pins as I/O pins (version 7.8.0), could you please inform us what is now the max number of Inputs and Outputs (and the mix of them) per board?
Prior to ver 7.8.0 was 50 inputs/40 outputs. Does this limitation changed?

Keep up the good work guys!

Thanks and Regards,

Hi Marinos,

it's quite a simple calculation:

Prior to Version 7.8.1 you have 50 inputs and 40 outputs.Max. usable pins: 50
Since Version 7.8.1 you have 50 (digital) inputs + 16 analog inputs (only usable as digital inputs) = 66 inputs and 40 outputs.
So if you use 66 inputs you can not use an output. For every used output subtract an input. So if you use 40 outputs you can use 26 inputs. Max. usable pins: 66
The limit of 40 outputs doesn't change.
Grüße,
Stephan

HI Guys.

I was verry bussy in work..... Not be able to check the new update till now and not get involved in the process.

iconStephanHo:

Thats only correct if Sebastian change in code the line " Max Inputs = 50 " to 66
If NOT then you got the Pins available but the number of Inputs is still 50.
But sure.... The number must increase. If he simply miss this he must increase the limit with a hotfix !

Maby Seb can comment this himself !
Good Luck !

The number was increased to 58 for the Mega.
Have a great day!
