  1. Dear Sir, Please let us know exactly how you save the flight (what key or key sequence you press) as well as a detailded flight loading sequence. Please add some screenshots as well. Regards.
  2. Dear Marcin, The reverser handle are only used as a looking mechanism to enter the reverser zone of the throttle levers. Use the contacts triggered by the levers detent. The levers only reach the detent when the reverser handles are actuated. Best regards.
  3. Hi, Can you show me how it is assigned now ? (Screenshot is perfect) Thank you.
  4. How to start the MSFS Honeycomb interface manually. In some cases, with some computer configurations, it has been reported that the lights of the Bravo throttle doesn’t lit when MSFS starts. Of course, it may be due to some hardware issue. To rule this out, please use the following test application. If the hardware isn’t the cause of the issue, it is most likely because of a corrupted startup file (EXE.xml), preventing MSFS to correctly read the interface application path. Here is a way of starting the interface manually. The Honeycomb interface application is called "AFC_Bridge.exe" and is located in the community folder of MSFS. The goal is to create a shortcut to "AFC_Bridge.exe" on the desktop. The video below shows hot to create this shortcut. Once the shortcut is created, please follow this procedure : - First start MSFS. - When started, before you go in WORLD MAP to create your flight, start AFC_Bridge via the shortcut on your desktop. - Setup your flight, launch it. - The lights are now working.
  5. Basic use of the Honeycomb Configurator + introduction to conditions and internal variables. In this tutorial we will first see how to simply assign a button to a variable then, how to condition the effect of this button to the status of another one via the conditions and the internal variables. To illustrate this, we will assign the Rotary Knob of the Honeycomb Bravo throttle to the altimeter setting (Kohlsman setting). NOTE : This is a generic procedure. It will work the same with any other button and function. The Rotary Knob is an encoder. It generates a “pulse train”wich is nothing more than ON/OFF input signals. It is exactly like quickly pressing a normal button multiple times. PART 1 : Basic assignments, step by step. Start Prepar3D or FSX and load a flight with a standard analog stock aircraft such as a Mooney Bravo or Cessna C172. STEP 1 : Start the Honeycomb Configurator 1 – Goto “Profiles” menu and choose “Select Profile” 2 – In the dialog box, click “Create new profile” STEP 2 : 1 – Select the Bravo Throttle quadrant 2 – Copy from “Default Profile” -> This generates an empty profile 3 – Name it as you want. In this example, we will name it “MyNewProfile” 4 – Click “Create” STEP 3 : 1 – Goto “Profiles” menu and choose “Select Profile” 2 – Click on “MyNewProfile” 3 – Click “Load” STEP 4 : The loaded profile now appear in the blue status bar at the bottom of the screen. STEP 5 : 1 – Click on the Rotary Knob 2 – A box appears showing the two rotation directions for the button Click on “Increase” 3 – In the profile editor (right black pane), it shows the “Incr” (Increase) button STEP 6 : 1 – Press “+ Add Event” 2 – A configuration panel appears underneath STEP 7 : 1 – Click on the “+” next to “Variables” to add a variable 2 – Open the “Select variable drop down menu STEP 8 : 1 – In the “Value” field, type “ko” 2 – In the dropdown, click on “KOHLSMAN_INC” 3 – “KOHLSMAN_INC” now appears in the “Variable” field 4 – Click “Apply Changes” STEP 9 : Repeat the procedure for the “Decrease” button assigning “KOHLSMAN_DEC” STEP 10 : In P3D or FSX, goto “Add-ons”->“Honeycomb”->”BFC_Throttle – Reload Bindings” STEP 11 : A message briefly appears showing the profile you just created has been loaded STEP 12 : You can now set the altimeter in the loaded aircraft Check it up ! PART 2 : Conditions and internal variables, step by step. This part will achieve the same feature but will condition the effect of the Rotary Knob to the status of the a toggle switch via the conditions and the internal variables. We will create an internal variable. We will name it “TOGGLE1ON” (any other name is ok) We will then assign a toggle switch to that variable. Finally, we will setup a condition in the Rotary Knob, requesting the toggle switch assigned to “TOGGLE1ON” be ON for the Rotary Knob to change the altimeter setting. à It sounds tricky, but it is rather simple and extremely powerful. This allow on button, the Rotary Knob for instance, to have multiple functions depending on the condition being active. As in part 1, start Prepar3D or FSX and load a flight with a standard analog stock aircraft such as a Mooney Bravo or Cessna C172. à We will speed up some of the basic steps described in part 1. à Remove the assignments made in part or, even better, create a new empty profile. STEP 1 : 1 – Click on the left toggle switch and choose “Toggle1 ON” 2 – “Toggle Button 1 Top (left)” appears in the profile editor 3 – Select Press Event STEP 2 : 1 – Press “+ Add Event” 2 – Add a variable 3 – From the “Variable” dropdown, select “CUSTOM VAR” 4 - From the “Key” dropdown, “INT”, type “TOGGLE1ON” as name Set the “Value” to “1” -> It means that when that button is in the “ON” position, the variable “TOGGLE1ON” will have a value of “1” 5 – Click “Apply Changes” STEP 3 : 1 – Click on the Rotary Knob and select “Increase” 2 - “Incr” appears in the profile editor 3 – Add an event 4 – Click “Conditions” STEP 4 : 1 – Add a condition 2 – From the “Condition” dropdown, select “CUSTOM VAR” From the “Key” dropdown, “INT”, type “TOGGLE1ON” as name Set the “Value” to “1” 3 – From the “Variable” dropdown, select “KOHLSMAN_INC” 4 – Click “Apply Changes” -> It means that when the “TOGGLE1ON” variable has a value of “1”, the Rotary Knob, if turned CW, will address the “KOHLSMAN_INC” variable, thus will increase the altimeter setting. STEP 5 : Repeat the same procedure for the “Decrease button” Set the “Variable” to “KOHLSMAN_DEC” Click “Apply Changes” -> It means that when the “TOGGLE1ON” variable has a value of “1”, the Rotary Knob, if turned CCW, will address the “KOHLSMAN_DEC” variable, thus will decrease the altimeter setting. Check it up !
  6. Hi Marcel, The Honeycomb are standard USB devices and even work with previous Windows version (altough the driver won't) It may be that your USB bus system has been messed up. This may be useful in case the issue happens again : https://www.anyrecover.com/external-device-recovery-data/usb-reset/ Best regards.
  7. Hi AFR2708 and Rebelxena, Please note this is an English speaking forum. We all use a common language so that everyone can understand all the post, enjoy the info and also give valuable inputs. So please, write your posts in English and you will get the help of all the international community. Regarding the use of the VRinsight products with MSFS, please note the CDU isn't compatible yet. No driver has been developped for the A320 from MSFS as this product requires windows undocking and FSUIPC offset interfacing wich isn't implemented in VRIsim driver yet for that plane. Regarding the MCP, some functions are available with the standard VRIsim/FSUIPC combination. There is also an unsupported thrird party utility called LINDA allowing some exted interface : https://www.avsim.com/forums/topic/583434-new-linda-403-beta-msfs-2020-compatible-6-sep-2020/ Best regards.
  8. Dear Gshneids, Here are the currently compatible addons per simulator : FSX: PMDG 737NG PMDG 747 PMDG 777 Prepar3D V1-V5: PMDG 737NGX PMDG 737NGXu PMDG 747 PMDG 777 X-Plane 11 : ZIBO 737-800 IXEG 737-300 MSFS Coming soon More will follow, but currently no specification has been published. Best regards.
  9. No, indeed, the CRJ doesn't allow to completely hide the yoke column. As you said, you can however lower it. Best regards.
  10. Indeed, on the connection between the lever and the main housing, there are not enough electrical contacts for the reverser lever input, the A/T button input and the TOGA button input. As Ben said, it was a technical trade off. Best regards.
  11. Hi Agrajag, Depending on the aircraft, you can toggle the yoke visibility by hovering the mouse on it. Best regards.
  12. Hi Marcel, Is there any USB hub in use on your computer ? If it works with your laptop, but not on your computer, try to disconnect every USB devices and hubs except the keyboard and the mouse, then plug the Bravo. Your USB power supply may be overloaded. Best regards.
  13. Hi Scott, Please simply check if all the inputs are correctly detected in the Windows Joystick utility. This is a basic step to rule out a hardware defect. Best regards.
