Hi Guys,

I am building a G1000 using Flight sim maker's PCB boards:

( very simple setup) every single button connects to a pin header which is connected to the board.
it is using the MSFS2020 Event IDs.

when I press a button once, it detects 2 presses. here are the logs:

Using version Beta

Any Idea?

I have downgraded from Beta to 8.1.4 Hotfiix and it resolved the issue.

We not explore this issue in our systems.

Sometimes those things happens if you not RESTART after a update....... Sebastian technical like a system, where restarts are not needed..... But i already explore those situations..... Mostly if you change something on the board ( Upgrade Firmware, create new devices, update MF to a new release or so).

For me a RESTART of Mobiflight and also of the Mega itself ( Reconncet USB, wait 3 seconds.... reconnect it) solved these problems !
Good Luck !
