Scripts and Flows

Recommended Posts

I just wanted to chime in on this topic because I invested many hours trying to get a good interaction between me and the crew using scripts.  However, my scripts focus primarily on all phases of flight with the aircraft systems and not chit chat.

Among other premium aircraft addons, I fly the Majestic Q400 Pilot and Pro editions. MCE has done an excellent job in modeling the Pilot Edition with scripts and direct voice commands. Plus I have my own custom scripts that work very well.

The Pro Edition has a FMC/ARCDU problem.  When asked to tune a frequency while in the VC cockpit view, MCE will not display the FMC panel.  Instead it displays the ARCDU panel.  However, if I'm in the 2D cockpit view and the FMC only (and not the entire center console) is displayed manually, MCE will tune the requested frequency.  I would think someone has already gotten this resolved.  I just have not seen the fix.  Any help would be appreciated.

Problem resolved itself when I downloaded the latest updates.

Excellent!

Always nice to see users wake-up to the MCE Voxscript concept and not be afraid to implement their own procedures.

No worries, users won't mess anything by replacing flows.

Pauses equal or lower than 2 seconds are no longer needed these days, as MCE automatically inserts a second and a half or two between two consecutive actions.

Feel free to delete all "pause=2" from the flows if you feel like FO is taking too long to execute them.

And since MCE is good at detecting aircraft status and flight phases, it doesn't really matter in which state the aircraft is started.

Olmba has provided the complete SOP from cold and dark to finish.

FO will eventually execute whatever flow you deem necessary for the current aircraft state you're on, without needing to go through all of them in the correct sequence unless you choose to.

Looking forward to emergency procedures :smile:

I want to show you something that you didn't know was possible.

How would you say "cabin crew prepare for departure" in Norwegian?

Use English alphabet and write it the way it sounds for an English speaker.

Actually ,as a commuter for 30 years I never heard this announcement been done in Norwegian language,  but it should be something like this;

"Kabin personalet forbered kabinen for avgang"

If you have triggered that briefing audio in your video via a custom script, clone it in MCE Voxscript UI, then when prompted to write down the new trigger sentence for the same script, type the following.

"cabin personalett forberred kabeenen avgang"

You can then make the request in either language.

You will notice that the English speech engine is able to recognize your speech even though most words have no meaning in English. It only cares about the noise signature. Could even write

cabinpersonalettforberredkabeenenaffgang as the trigger sentence.

Eventually fine tune it.

Using this technique, you can teach your co-pilot to pick-up any language, even local slang that's not part of the official language.

Good afternoon,

I hope I'm in the right place to post this question.

I've recently bought MCE and am really enjoying finding out what it can do. It certainly brings an extra dimension to flight sim. I'm trying my hand at writing single commands which I'll develop into flows later when I've got the hang of it. There don't seem to be many flows for old turbo props that I've discovered although I may just not have found them yet, so I would like to create some of my own. I've managed a few using voxkey concentrating on things the FO would usually do as they're on his side of the cockpit. I can't seem to find any key stroke for the ground power unit / external power. Ive looked in other flows which people have posted and checked various keyboard command lists without any luck. Is it possible to make a command so the FO will turn on/off the GPU? 

Any help or advice on this would be gratefully received.

Greetings.

Which aircraft and simulator are you working with?

The Majestic Dash 8 is a supported MCE aircraft. This has specific commands to activate the GPU. However, this is done via the FMC menu, which MCE cleverly accesses by selecting the sub menu for GPU.

I doubt any generic turbo prop aircraft will permit MCE to access and use a GPU, but I may be wrong.

If the GPU can be accessed by key strokes, then VOX KEY may work for you. There is a limit of two key strokes per VOX KEY command. So you may take a few commands to get a menu open.

Regards.

Good morning,

thankyou for the prompt response. I should have said, I use FSX steam and am looking at the JustFlight Viscount, Rick Piper's HS748 and (not a 'turbo' prop, I know) the De Havilland Dove. I'll certainly have a look at the Majestic Dash 8 commands to see whether they'll apply to the HS and DH, I haven't found any key strokes yet for the GPU. I can ask Mr Piper at his forum perhaps.

I do use the A2a Constellation a bit, and I've seen you've a flow for that but it says it's P3D. Will that be compatible for FSX too?

Thanks for your time

Jon

Hello Jon.

The JF Viscount will be using the "native" FSX commands in MCE. I don't know that sim. If JF have modelled the GPU with certain keystrokes, then you may be able to use Vox Key to get it going. All your doing with Vox Key is getting it to "type" key strokes into the sim. Where the magical MCE actually activates things by getting under the hood of the sim. Its at a code level. The "native" FSX commands are things like gear/flaps etc. Many things you see in your controls menu. Only with a supported aircraft will you be able to access non native commands. GPU falls into a non native command.

The Connie is not a MCE supported ship. So all commands rely upon them being FSX/P3d native commands. There is no real difference between FSX and P3d native code. It's basically the same sim. 

I think you access the GPU in the Connie via the A2A menu panel. That's going to be outside of the native FSX commands that MCE could handle. You would have to open the A2A menu with a Vox Key command, whatever it is, I can't recall off the top of my head. Then select the menu item with another command. Somewhat fiddley, but doable. As for putting that into a Vox Script flow.....not doable!

Great fun though!:biggrin:

Cheers.

I was wondering is there a way to trigger an event at specific altitude? For example say I want the copilot to turn off the landing lights passing 10000 ft, is it possible to program that through voxscript?

Of course you can Tony.

Decide what custom speech to use in order to get Fo to perform whatever you intend, create a new flow and name it with that custom sentence. Then as part of the flow, add the built-in command "landing lights off" and whatever else you want the Fo to do and save the flow.

Here is a video showing Voxscript in action

Gerald,

Thanks for the response. However I believe I wasn't clear in what I was asking.  I think what I meant to say was is there a way for me to program the copilot to automatically do something at a specific altitude without a verbal command from me? For example, on approach the copilot knows when he is at 500 feet above the ground, he says "500 feet or when 1000 feet above or below an altitude he says "1000 to go"  or when approaching minimums on an ILS approach he says "minimums" without any interaction from me.  So I assumed that there was possibly somewhere in the ini file I could program an altitude to trigger an event.  So in my previous post the altitude in this case 10000 feet would trigger the copilot to turn the landing lights on or off automatically without me saying anything.  Not a problem, just a question.

Thanks again for a great product.

 

Tony

Unfortunately, it'snot possible, because as far as the simulator is concerned, there is no "event" passing 10 000 (climbing or descending).

The only way to achieve that is by constantly monitoring the altitude.against the 10000 reference, and then would have to hard code what you expect Fo to do which may not be what the other user wants.

There are things that trigger events like when retracting spoilers. The sim notifies your app about that event without you having to constantly check the spoiler handle.

Is there a PDF available for the flows for the FF A350 ? iv been using the generic A3XX one but some things are different, also there are extra flows for the A350 which im unsure where they are supposed to be implemented. Any help would be greatly appreciated

There isn't one as very few people read them. And the moment you modify a flow by adding or removing an item, the doc is out of synch

Add to that, little is known about the A350 (only a handful of airlines have it).

Although we replaced the built-in checklist (that isn't a proper checklist, more like here is a step by step on how to proceed) with something that resembles an ECl, it's still not the real deal.

We are eager to speak someone who may have the real world A350 ECL.
