    Default Option Key Assignment TOGGLE_LOGO_LIGHTS

    Hallo developers,

    I am struggling with a problem of bringing a new Key Assignment into the Option Key Assignment List !

    When i edit the standard.xml file of the The P3Dv 4.5

    with the code :

    <Entry>
    <Key>U</Key>
    <Down>TOGGLE_LOGO_LIGHTS</Down>
    </Entry>

    I can use this new U Key for my Logo Lights effects and it works :-)

    Aircraft.cfg

    [LIGHTS] 9 stays for logo light
    light.0 =
    light.1 = 9, -6.80, 0.00, 5.00, fx_logolight
    light.0 =
    light.0 =
    light.0 =

    but it will not show up in the Option Key Assignment List
    because i want to assign this new U Key to my Thrustmaster Filght Stick

    Can somebody tell me what else i need to do ?

    Default

    In FSX/P3D there are many functions (events) that you cannot assign via the menu.
    Like TOGGLE_LOGO_LIGHTS.

    Moreover (that's is FSX, and I'm pretty sure in P3D too), you cannot assign a keystroke to a controller button via the menu; only an event.

    But since you allready know how to add/change stuff in the standard.xml file, the simplest solution is:

    - In P3D, assign the intended stick-button to e.g. "Lights -all (on/off)"
    - Close P3D, open standard.xml and find the entry that reflects this button assignment to event ALL_LIGHTS_TOGGLE.
    - Then replace ALL_LIGHTS_TOGGLE with TOGGLE_LOGO_LIGHTS.
    - Save the standard.xml, and start P3D

    Should work fine now ....
