Many thanks for those kind words, guys. I'll be very happy if its availability helps to introduce the joys of LINDA to an even wider audience. :smile:

Haha, 'don't panic'. Lets hope the Vogons read that one too. Thanks for your efforts, Brian.

Thanks for that, CoolP! (Naturally, I was wearing my dressing gown whilst writing it). :P

 

In fact, if I remember rightly "Don't Panic" was Günter's idea (he designed the cover, for which much thanks). :smile:

 

Cheers,

 

Brian

 

P.S. If there is anyone reading this who hasn't heard of the HHGTTG, don't worry about it. ^_^

Sorry, blueairone70, but I can't tell what you're saying (asking?).

 

Based on the pages which you mention, though:—

 

The illustration on page 27 (note the red circles, and the mouse arrow) shows that I clicked on button 12, then from the drop-down chose "LIB: User functions", and from the list that results I am indicating the "EXAMPLE function format" which you will find in your lib-user.lua file in <fsx directory>\Modules\linda\libs That is the only function you will find there by default, the others shown (i.e. the ones beginning with my initials, such as BC_After_Engine_Start) are ones that I have added myself — see also the example on the previous page, which illustrates how to do this. Appendix 1 lists the 700 NGX-specific functions that you can utilise, whilst Appendix 3 shows the fsx actions available. Pages 24 - 28 cover all the steps which are needed. But only you can decide what functions you need, based on your hardware controls, the aircraft you fly, and the way you fly, which is why my functions would not be particularly relevant for anyone else

 

Appendix 2 (page 46) is simply to illustrate the benefits of carefully designing your control assignments to suit your hardware before you start writing any Lua code (see ""Designing your set of control assignments to suit your hardware", starting on page 20, which refers to Appx 2). The ENG L switch is, of course, unique to the controls illustrated; whilst the associated function name (such as NGX_GEAR_off, BC_After_Engine_Start, and the rest) is a reminder of what function is assigned when you operate that particular control..

 

I hope that helps,

 

Cheers,

 

Brian

My pleasure, Ian. :smile: LINDA is just great.

 

Good luck with the move to fsx, too — once you've got everything sorted out you're going to love it. ^_^

 

Cheers,

 

Brian
