Dual input simulation

Now that for example the Thrustmaster TCAs have a selector switch to assign either pilot or co-pilot configuration, would it be difficult for the development team to introduce the dual input simulation with both sidesticks connected in a future update? It would be awesome if the take over function of the AP disconnect button and the priority system would become functional in FSLabs.

That's in for next version update.

And another thank you FSLabs! The latest update has made a huge step forward in this regard as well. The only thing missing after some quick initial testing is that I did not get the aural "Dual input" warning when making simultaneous inputs. But a big thanks for this implementation!

It's there. :)

Strange, because I do get the "priority left/right" aural when holding the AP disconnect buttons, but not the aural "dual input" when applying simultaneous inputs. I will check again tomorrow.

I also don’t hear the dual input sound when applying simultaneous inputs.

Ok I see. Sorry didn't bother reading the manual as I'm a long time user, didn't thought this would have been an option. :rolleyes:

It's definitely a pin option and I just discovered it's not being saved after set, so that it can remain selected for your next load. Sorry about that - it should be fixed for the next update (it'll be saved in the particular livery configuration, however).

Ok, learned something today. Even though I've been flying on the airbus family for now more than 4 years, I never knew that this was actually an option. I always thought it was standard on each Airbus. All the airbus I flew so far are all equipped with the "Dual Input" Aural warning.

Well if you own the version for p3d v4 or v5 then install the latest version. That will allow two units to be connected.
