What is it?
Better Bravo Lights (BBL) aims to be a ‘better’ replacement for the Aerosoft Honeycomb Bravo Throttle lights tool (aka the “AFC bridge”). It is completely standalone and does not require the original Honeycomb Bravo lights driver.
BBL provides a number of significant improvements over the original Aerosoft/Honeycomb Bravo Lights driver:
- It supports different configurations for different aircraft; this is critical because oil pressures, fuel pressures and battery voltages vary wildly from aircraft to aircraft.
- Lights respond immediately, not just after a second or two. This is vitally important for responsive autopilot buttons.
- It comes with a complete set of configurations for all of the aircraft that come with MSFS.
- It supports both A: variables and L: variables. Putting the technojargon to one side, if you want to make the MASTER WARNING and MASTER CAUTION lights work, you need a tool that can read L: variables from MSFS. AFC Bridge doesn’t support L: variables.
NOTE: THIS TOOL IS CURRENTLY IN DEVELOPMENT AND IN BETA STATUS!
If you're happy helping to test and report issues on incomplete and buggy software, give it a go. If you're not, and expect something perfect and polished, you'll want to wait a little while until it's completely stable and complete. Please don’t download it then discover it’s not complete enough for you and give it a bad rating!
Don't unpack it into your Community folder. This is a tool, not a piece of scenery.
Full details on how to install and (optionally) configure it, as well as all the source code for the tool, are available at GitHub:
