737 Simulator on Phidgets, help needed....

Post by marxair »

Hi, I need your expertise on a certain project.
I bought a phidget controlled hardware for a Boeing 737 simulator, saying 0/16/16, with loads of USB cables, motors and cards.
I downloaded PhidgetControl, which somehow shows the various cards.
In order to link and connect now to my PC running the simulator, a software named FS2Phidget or similar is required. That is a software which was used ten years back or so....
Is there anyone out here, who would have an idea on how to find this "bridge" to my simulator?
Kind regards from Munich, Germany
Michael

If you still have the old program, you may need to download the old version of our drivers to get it working. You can have both Phidget21 and Phidget22 installed on the same computer, so no need to uninstall.

That sounds interesting. I will try to use an older version. Thank you.

In case anyone has a old version of FS2Phidget or an account to get this freeware from MyCockpit forums, would also be GREAT :)

I got that together, the only problem is, that my Phidgets are still greyed out in the Phidget Manager. Why could that be?

How to find the right year and driver of the 0/16/16 cards?

Thanks in advance!!!

hello mparadis,

it looks like the old programm does not communicate with Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020 anymore.

Do you have a clue for me, how to get HID / Joystick signal out of a phidget motor controller or a phidget 0/16/16 board?

How would you interface phidgets to a windows based programm?

Regrads and thanks in advance,
