  1. Sometimes the link will only work if you use a right-click, followed by selecting "Save link as..." (or the equivalent for your particular browser) Unsure as to a cause, but for me that helped.
  2. For Prepar3D and FSX there is a DLL that translates PMDG aircraft data to variables the tool can use in its configuration. This DLL has to be explicitly enabled using the Honeycomb configurator software. Also, the PMDG aircraft have a substantial list of events available for use in the configurator which are not available to the default controls configuration. Now that PMDG has released their first jet for MSFS 2020, I was wondering if the configurator for MSFS will also receive this extension.
  3. Now that PMDG has started releasing their first aircraft for MSFS, will there be a PMDG module like the one for Prepar3D? Bert
  4. Hi Bert,

    Im a newbie so i apologize for a stupid question. I run pmdg 4.5 i purchased the honeycomb alpha, hooked it up, downloaded. Opened configurator, activated pmdg, went to "download profiles" downloaded 737ngxu in my aerosoft account. Downloaded a json file?, windows would not open so I downloaded a json app to open. Opens as a text file?

    cannot save to the sim to activate, watched a few vids but they seem to bypass this part, go straight to opening the file?. What am I doing wrong here?


    Thanks from a very annoyed purchaser of these products

      Martin, there is actually a support forum for this at https://forum.aerosoft.com/index.php?/forum/245-hardware-and-os-discussions-suggestions-and-insights/.


      You said you downloaded the profile, but did you activate it in the Configurator? When you run Prepar3D, in the Add-on menu, do you see an entry for the AFC Bridge?

  5. Eduardo, so far, 99% of the time this turns out to be an actual double configuration. When you connect a new device, or sometimes a known device on a new USB location, Prepar3D will see it and give it "default" assignments. If, at the same time, you are using FSUIPC for this, you'll end up with confusing double assignments. A similar problem may happen on the button side, where a set of default bindings can conflict with either FSUIPC or the Honeycomb Configurator. Cheers, Bert Laverman
  6. Ok, it looks like Throttles 1 through 4 are also in FSUIPC: [JoyNames] AutoAssignLetters=No 0=Saitek X52 Flight Control System 0.GUID={B2573D10-CB2D-11EA-8001-444553540000} 2=Mad Catz Pro Flight Combat Rudder Pedals 2.GUID={B257B240-CB2D-11EA-8009-444553540000} 1=Bravo Throttle Quadrant 1.GUID={BE0377C0-A8D9-11EB-8001-444553540000} [Axes] PollInterval=10 RangeRepeatRate=10 0=1X,256,D,9,0,0,0 -{ DIRECT: Throttle1 }- 1=1Y,256,D,0,10,0,0 -{ DIRECT: Throttle2 }- 2=1Z,256,D,0,0,11,0 -{ DIRECT: Throttle3 }- 3=1R,256,D,0,0,0,12 -{ DIRECT: Throttle4 }- So, if you have them in the Prepar3D Controls, then it looks like that is your problem.
  7. Can you provide your Controls definition and, if you have FSUIPC installed, your FSUIPC.ini or FSUIPC6.ini?
  8. Yes, if you installed the X52 drivers, it may conflict with some aspects of other controllers. I noticed the X52 driver will disable e.g. Saitek Flight Info Panels. That caused me to immediately de-install them, so I have not tested what they did vs the Alpha. My Bravo is not at home at the moment...
  9. The Honeycomb configurator is only concerned with buttons, switches, knobs, and LEDs. The Axes you should configure in P3D/MSFS or FSUIPC. Bert
  10. Not to be too simplistic about this, but have you asked the SimHanger guy? I have not viewed/used his video so I can't comment on its ionstructions. Bert
  11. The levers requiring "reverse" to be on is normal, but having one lever move two engines sounds like you have multiple definitions. Where do you have the exes defined? In P3D or FSUICP... or could they happen to be in both? Bert
  12. Yesterday I received a reply from Honeycomb: There is no calibration procedure for the Bravo like the "Konami code" for the Alpha.
