SLI-M wiring

Discussion in 'Sim Racing Hardware' started by Chris Knight, Nov 20, 2010.

  1. Hi guys I have just gotten my SLI-M shift lights and im about to wire up the buttons but I want to wire a button for brightness + and brightness -. for the - I wired up a button to switch 7 and fired up rfactor but was still blinded and pressing the button did nothing.

    Please If anyone can help me.

    Cheers Chris
     
  2. Hi Chris

    Normally I suggest people use a rotary encoder to adjust the brightness. I'm sure you can use buttons tho, but you will need to look in the E.K. software .ini file to check which button assignments to use (I cant remember off hand, tho 7&8 does sound familiar) You can adjust the brightness in the software too.

    Let me know how you get on
     
  3. # brightness (an encoder is recommended)
    # use "SLI-PRO Configurator" to set your encoder to 7-8 button 1:1
    #BRITLESSBTN = 7
    #BRITMOREBTN = 8

    # Set the step of brightness adjustment (default 20)
    BRITSTEP = 20

    # Max TC brightness from 3 to 8 (Default 6)
    TCBrightness = 6

    # Max AntiLock brakes brightness from 3 to 8 (Default 6)
    ABSBrightness = 6

    # Default Brightness for Leds, Digit Gear, Speed and time.
    #GLOBAL METHOD
    # from 1 to 100%,
    # (default 86%)
    GlobalBrightness = 0

    # GLOBAL METHOD is used typically by encoder to decrease or increase
    # brightness but you can here adjust each part of the PCB
    # uncomment to activate

    # brightness for shiftlights
    # for all 13 leds set the value from 1 to 8
    #RPMBrightness = 4,4,4,4,4,4,4,4,4,3,3,3,3

    # brightness for the 6 extra leds
    # from 1 to 8
    #ExtraBrightness = 3,6,6,6,6,3

    # brightness for the 5 external leds
    # from 1 to 8
    #ExternalBrightness = 5,5,5,5,5

    # Digits brightness from 1 to 8
    #GearDigitBrightness = 6
    #SpeedDigitBrightness = 6
    #TimeDigitBrightness = 6

    this is my settings. What does uncomment mean? i have the 7 and 8 buttons wired up but still they do nothing. they do work as i can set them if i go into rf config settings and map them to something
     
  4. Remove the # before the line.
     
  5. :DAs Tom said, remove the '#' Sorry should have realised that was your prob lol

    Cheers Tommo :wink:
     
  6. Should also make it clear that you should only remove it before the actual tags-don't remove it from the
    Code:
    brightness (an encoder is recommended)
    use "SLI-PRO Configurator" to set your encoder to 7-8 button 1:1
    
    bits, remove it from
    Code:
    #BRITLESSBTN = 7
    #BRITMOREBTN = 8
