Dump Levers . nothing works!

Post maddz »

been trying for a few days, with Linda, to set a button to OPEN the dump chutes. (just open position, not dump)
Ive tried all the Lvars, but none of them will make the lever(s) move.

They attempt to move, but just go straight back to the closed position...blink and you'll miss it.

Anyone got a working example??

I have this, which does not work

-- ## dump chutes open ## --
function open_dump_chutes ()
-- dump chutes open --
ipc.writeLvar("FuelDumpLeftLever", 50)
ipc.writeLvar("FuelDumpRightLever", 50)
end

I've tried all the others too without success.


[S] Watching new LVar: FuelDump1 = 0
[S] Watching new LVar: FuelDump2 = 0
[S] Watching new LVar: FuelDump3 = 0
[S] Watching new LVar: FuelDump4 = 0
[S] Watching new LVar: FuelDumpChuteLH = 0
[S] Watching new LVar: FuelDumpChuteRH = 0
[S] Watching new LVar: FuelDumping = 0
[S] Watching new LVar: FuelDumpLeftLever = 0
[S] Watching new LVar: FuelDumpLeftLeverDrag = 50
[S] Watching new LVar: FuelDumpLeftLeverState = 50
[S] Watching new LVar: FuelDumpLeversPast = 50
[S] Watching new LVar: FuelDumpRightLever = 0
[S] Watching new LVar: FuelDumpRightLeverClick = 50
[S] Watching new LVar: FuelDumpRightLeverDrag = 0
[S] Watching new LVar: FuelDumpRightLeverState = 0
[S] Watching stopped for LVar: FuelDumpRightLever

I just checked that I have posted this in the correct “technical SUPPORT” forum.

But I receive zero support.

Might try sending Lewis a PM with a link to this post. I know that all the A2A guys have been pretty busy. I would like to help but I would be of no use to you on this matter.

Keep smiling
Tug :)

Try this:

function open_dump_chutes ()
-- dump chutes open --
ipc.writeLvar("L:FuelDumpLeftLever", 50)
ipc.sleep(200)
ipc.writeLvar("L:FuelDumpRightLever", 50)
end
