Write down the values for each button and then use the tutorial not make 5 different logic as you mentioned ABCDE. you assign each one a different keystroke. You got an accord? im driving a Civic SI

Correct, except an "else if nothing" really isnt needed. It wont hurt anything, and would be for completeness, but no it is not needed.

I just started playing with the program, so all the little options I am not sure of yet. I run 1400x1050 as my lowest resolution on any 1 PC monitor (excluding the car), so it doesnt seem big to me. :)

But It does export an SWF. If you use Firefox, you can use the get media form to get the swf directly, and paste that into the address bar. I know FF auto-resizes it so if your screen is smaller, it should shrink it.

thanks for all your help, just another thing. When i get to the part that Im doing the "add then statement" , "then do form" is where the problem is. when I add the "what to do" I then add what you did in the video, "send key to foreground" then medium for the "priority" then f8 for the "vote opinion" I then get an error which says "invaid what to do" says "You have not selected a valid" What to Do" value I did everything like in the video. Im confused

Custom- although your steering wheel has three buttons visually, when you press volume up and volume down, you are triggering different switches behind the buttons. same thing for channel up and down. Behind the up, there is a switch and a different switch behind the down.

You are correct in that you will only use 1 analogue input in FB. you willl have to create 5 different then/do commands for each button.

Can you run the updater now please? I copied my file just in case. I am sure this went out in an update over a month ago though.

What version number is your software? Are you using the auto-updater?

Im having problems with this now after watching the video. When i get to the part that Im doing the "add then statement" , "then do form" is where the problem is. when I add the "what to do" I then add what you did in the video, "send key to foreground" then medium for the "priority" then f8 for the "vote opinion" I then get an error which says "invaid what to do" says "You have not selected a valid" What to Do" value I did everything like in the video. Im confused are you having the same problem?
