SimVimX v2.02 - Custom input improvements and other additions

Since the beginning of the project, custom aircraft models often required a different approach to input processing than the default ones in X-Plane. They often use a pair of Up/Down commands or even a single command for things such as multi-position switches, that, while convenient for "clicks" on the virtual panel, present a problem when it is needed to synchronize the simulator's controls states with the current positions of physical switches.
While basic support for such custom switches was implemented in the plugin long ago, some updates were still adding new features for more unusual cases of custom controls.
This is one of such updates, implementing better support for converted 3-position and multi-position switches with Up/Down commands in the specific case when their reference datarefs are animated, changing gradually over time.
The plugin now implements delayed command calls and position checking for such inputs, so they will now be positioned correctly on initial connection or after a fast change by the user.
On another topic, I've added online version checking into the plugin, so it will now automatically notify you when a new version of the plugin or database file is available for download.
Download the new version here.

Hi Curt. As a subscriber, you're welcome to join the Discord channel linked to this blog if you have questions.
SimVimPanel is not a constructor program, and works with pre-made panel modules (the whole panel can be scaled or moved, though). You can see the list of currently available modules here:
New modules are gradually being developed, and I can quickly make custom variants with modified gauge positions or replace gauges with different ones on request, if needed.

Hello Roman,
Thank you for jour fantastic job !
I am just a little bit lost with the different channels of communication : I have created a Discord account but I can't find a way to join the chat whether from here or from Discord app which is asking for a code to connect to simvim ??
I have posted a question relative to combo radio (problem with ACT switch thast does not work) on simvim site but is it the good place ?
Have a nice day
