Hi,

Just ran into a strange thingy Rolling Eyes

When using the SimOptons on the CDU to take care of the pushback, all works fine.

Set PBrakes, ..., Release PBrakes, pushback itself. But, then once the pushback is completed, the system announces "Set PBrakes". Even when setting this, it does not accept or see that they are set. It keeps calling out to set PBrakes. P3D even shows PBrakes set on the left bottom in red/white.

Checked the FSUIPC setting on the server and have it set to 0x0BC8 + checked with the FSUIPC monitor on the server. Switch change, changes the values correctly.

Get Value=0 when off and value=32767 when on. So all is fine from that point of view.

Never the less, the system apparently does not see that the PBrakes are set again.

How can I resolve this issue?

Thx.

Default FSUIPC offsets can be found in the Server Menu > Offset Assignment Info.

By default, Parking brake = 5418
In your FSUIPC_IO.ini file you should have PARKING_BRAKE=5418

On the Server > Flight Controls > Flight Controls Config 1 Tab :
"Parking Brake External" checkbox should be OFF

In P3D > FSUIPC Buttons and Switches
The parking brake switch should be assigned to :
Offset Byte Set
x5418
(as per the Offset Assignment Info)

Hi Mark,

Thanks for the answer.

Unfortunately I'm not successful. I decided to re-install everything from scratch. So, that I don't have any hidden surprises.

I've set the parameters as by what you've described. When setting (with repeat) the value read in the monitor of the server reads 0x5418=255.
When PB is off, 0x5418=0. the switch is only controlled by FSUIPC.

The pushback works fine until it's complete. Then the system asks to set parking brakes. Set the PB (value changes to 255). It keeps repeating that until I shutdown the server and P3D.

If it may help for the troubleshooting, I have a Revolution simproducts TQ.

Many thanks for helping.

I can't remember how Rev Sim do their assignments...? is it via FSUIPC ?

If so, check your FSUIPC Parking brake assignment.
x5418 is a 'byte' offset.
Therefore the value in the monitor should be showing 0 and 1.

Check you're using "Offset Byte Set" with a value = 1.

If you don't have control over the offset then edit the FSUIPC_IO file and modify the parking brake assignment :
PARKING_BRAKE=5418b0

The b0 part will tell the Server to monitor bit 0 of the byte.
