You can get the same result by mapping the circuit breaker bar to a joystick button and clicking a switch to the OFF position while the joystick button (or toggle switch) is held in the ON position.

OK.
Any thoughts on my Witchcraft problem? I haven't got a clue there. Don't know what info you need to help me either.
I feel I need to streamline the "programming" because of the repetitive starting missions and so on.

It's probably something simple caused by one of the dependencies chancing since I wrote the code over a year ago. I couldn't reproduce this on the first try, but I'll look at it again later this week when I have the time to do a clean install.

Thanks!
I've done a hack using C# to migrate the majority of components from clickabledata.lua, the simple button/switch etc which saves a ton of time.
Shouldn't be much left now but the more complex components I need to look at in detail.

Keep up the good work Ian and Artur!

Merge with DCS-BIOS? Certainly hope so. I am working on the radios now. That and a few other controls remain. The rest is done (99%) and somewhat tested. Will most certainly be bugs like DCS-BIOS shows OFF when it is ON and vice versa.
AND not least, naming standard of the components, that is perhaps something to work on, I don't know how important it is. Can be difficult to be consistent when there are hundreds of components to name.
Artur without the h.

Excellent, it'll be fantastic to have the Mi-8 available in DCS BIOS.
Although you would need lots of room to build a full cockpit!

PS apologies for the spelling of you name, I blame my dyslexia!

Out of curiosity, what will you do with Mi-8 in DCS-BIOS?
Not my real name anyways. My prefer not to use my real name in English contexts for obvious reasons.

I've already made a generic panel I use for the other modules available in DCS BIOS.
It has features like warning lights, fire extinguishers, drop tanks, landing and nav lights etc
Currently working on another generic panel that will handle radio and nav.
When I want to use a different module with a panel I just load the sketch I made for it.
eg. mig-21 :
https://www.dropbox.com/s/hdwptze66n...1_001.ino?dl=0

But I digress.
Once the Mi-8 is in DCS BIOS I will add it to those panels and perhaps even make a weapons control panel for the Mi-8.
