Re: Arduino controler

Swan song. Well, this Arduino post is getting up near 10,000 views. That seems to show more than a little interest in the Arduino. Most of the SPAD.neXt support, however, is going toward the high end, high demand, aircraft and hardware. My time for working with hardware is coming to a close due to c...

Re: activation information

For what it's worth..... Normally, I'll burn a copy to a CD/DVD of anything that I buy. I'll also make a screen shot of the web page that I bought it from, including any passwords, serial numbers, registration. Do I do EVERYTIME? Like anyone else, I sometimes forget. :D But it has saved me MANY time...

Re: Will It Work

Well, I have Windows 10, Prepar3d V4.x, SPAD.neXt, and all of the Saitek panels. I have absolutely no problem with it all working together. Another way to look at it - Without SPAD.neXt your Saitek equipment will never work as well as it should. Logitech now owns the Saitek name and products. So far...

Re: Will It Work

This is pretty much a repost, but your questions and need are, essentially, the same. There may be a way to use your Saitek panels with the "Saitek" drivers, but you'd be crazy to try. Using the "standard settings" in SPAD.neXt you will be able will do FAR MORE than the Saitek drivers. And if you wa...

Re: Will Spad Fix my problem?

There may be a way to use your Saitek panels with the "Saitek" drivers, but you'd be crazy to try. P3d V4.x not only works perfectly with SPAD.neXt, it makes the Saitek panels work the way that they should. If that was all that SPAD.neXt did, it would be a good deal. But SPAD.neXt will do FAR MORE. ...

Re: Free test before purchase

Actually, SPAD.neXt is great for people who describe themselves as "computer challenged". Go ahead and buy it. ***Then TOTALLY uninstall the Saitek drivers.*** Install SPAD.neXt. What you will want to do is to just use SPAD.neXt "As Is". You'll find that the defaults will give you just about everyth...

Text to Speech tutorial

SPAD.neXt has the capability to convert flight sim information into speech via the "Text to Speech" command. This is just one example of the extra features in the PAID version. :D How far you want to take it is up to you. For instance, you can set up conditional text. A gross oversimplification is I...

Re: P3Dv4.1 and Spad.next

I downloaded V4.1 and did a, mostly, full reinstall. I kept all of my P3d V4 aircraft. No Problems at all, and it resolved a nagging slowdown in loading. I have SPAD.neXt V0.9.6.32. Absolutely no problems at all. I don't, however, have the high demand aircraft that use "LVARS" so I can't comment on ...

Re: Incredible I/O touchscreen display for instruments

I just noticed that all this time I have had the registered version, I have not had the "CONTROLS" tab in SPAD.Next. I just updated to the beta and re-registered and now I do. I can see all my devices now where I could not before. ???????????? That's interesting to know. I've used the full versions...

Re: Incredible I/O touchscreen display for instruments

I have no clue what "com2kybd" is, and can't find it. Refs? Arduinos using MobiFlight will not show up in SPAD.neXt. Actually, at this point in time, NO Arduino boards will show up in SPAD.neXt unless you've programmed the Arduino as a simple USB/HID device. At that point you can use SPAD.neXt to do...
