Need halp. RTFM isn't working. Behringer device

I've RTFM'd till I'm blue in the face but I'm having all kinds of problems:

Encoders (Dials): Velocity seems to increase from 0 to 127 with clockwise turns. Counter clockwise turns register as velocity 0. Both directions  are control change = 1

Here is the syntax from my file:

 # Encoders
  { ch = 11, cc = 1,  type = "enc", command_up = "sim/instruments/barometer_up", command_down = "sim/instruments/barometer_down" },

This seems like pretty basic stuff but I'm blocked.

I appreciate the help. I'm seriously struggling. This syntax gives me no joy. 

(I'm looking in the "commands.txt" file in Planes=>Resources=>Plugins for valid commands)

 { ch = 11, cc = 1,  mode = "relative" , type = "enc", command_up = "sim/GPS/g1000n1_hdg_up" },

I really need some more help. Data ref editor just shows multiple data refs for what seem like the same value.

Also the backlights on the Behringer sometimes are lit on the encoders and sometimes aren't. In both cases data is getting through to xplane though.

Why is this so painfully difficult?

Which Behringer model do you use?

Can you choose in your Behringer-Software (Editor for the device) "Relative"?

I have an xtouch mini. How would the Behringer software interact with the plugin? I'm struggling with the text file/configuration for xplane I'm not sure how the Behringer software fits in that equation.

You have to use the Behringer software to set up the X-Touch to work best (at all?) with the plugin.

Oh sweet fancy Moses I got it to work!!! I think I never properly "dumped" the configuration from xmidi controller. Thank you guys for the help. I was at my wits end!

Can I get a second B layer for the encoders or no?

Yes..... select for LayerB another CC as on LayerA.

For Example: Encoder 1 on LayerA = CC1, Encoder 1 on LayerB = CC9

That makes sense, but something is wrong. When I flip-flop to layer B all the buttons & encoders remain on their settings for layer A.

Is there some magic I need to do with the x-touch editor first?

Load "Presets on computer" or "GET A" (from Hardware)  ........  edit your settings .......... and dump "To Hardware" (Dump A).

After that:

Load "Presets on computer" or "GET B" (from Hardware)  ........  edit your settings .......... and dump "To Hardware" (Dump B).

Here are the two layers - they look identical. Here is the configuration text:

 

  #--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
  # Layer B
  #--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

  # Slider
  { ch = 11, cc = 50, type = "sld", command_up = "", command_middle = "", command_down = "" },
  
  # Encoders
  { ch = 11, cc = 41, type = "enc", command_up = "sim/radios/stby_com1_coarse_down", command_down = "sim/radios/stby_com1_coarse_up" },
  { ch = 11, cc = 42, type = "enc", command_up = "sim/radios/stby_com2_coarse_down", command_down = "sim/radios/stby_com2_coarse_up" },
  { ch = 11, cc = 43, type = "enc", command_up = "sim/radios/stby_com1_fine_down", command_down = "sim/radios/stby_com1_fine_up" },
  { ch = 11, cc = 44, type = "enc", command_up = "sim/radios/stby_com2_coarse_down", command_down = "sim/radios/stby_com2_coarse_up" },
  { ch = 11, cc = 45, type = "enc", command_up = "sim/instruments/barometer_up", command_down = "sim/instruments/barometer_down" },
  { ch = 11, cc = 46, type = "enc", command_up = "", command_down = "" },
  { ch = 11, cc = 47, type = "enc", command_up = "", command_down = "" },
  { ch = 11, cc = 48, type = "enc", command_up = "", command_down = "" },

I think for starters you can use the examples in the examples folder or you need to edit the files to your liking.

Not easy I know.... it's worth it though. ;)

You have to understand how to use the files and how to change them.

 

It took me 2 weeks. :lol::D
