IOCARDS? What do I need?

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

Until today I have been using iFLY + IOCARDS + SIOC. It works quite well.

I have made the SIOC script myself, and would like to edit it to work with PMDG instead.

 

Can someone give me a link to a thread or website about how to interface (offsets to all PMDG switches, leds and so on) to PMDG via SIOC? Maybe I also need some interface program, except the obvious FSUIPC and SIOC.

 

BR,

Magnus

Hello Magnus!

 

I also want to build a homecockpit based on the NGX. I have done some research the last days and the software problem should be solved now.

 

Outputs:

 

The new FSUIPC version includes offsets (only reading) for the NGX. Download the new FSUIPC version and see the relating PDF-File.

 

Inputs:

 

Inputs can be done with "custom controls" in FSUIPC. You have to assign a button and selct "custom controls" in the drop down menu. Then open the PMDG_NGX_SDK.h-file. When you scroll down, you can see the numbers you have to use (e.g. THIRD_PARTY_EVENT_ID_MIN + 1 for the BAT switch). So you have to add 1 to 69632. This is the control which the button will send. See also this post.

 

Regards

 

David

 

Edit: It is important, that you set a parameter. E.g. 1 for On and 0 for Off. I am not sure what parameters a switch with three postions has, but I will ask in another post.

Hi

 

I have found that you need the binary number in the parameter box, i will check if nr 1 or 0 will but it did not work for me but i will check it :)

 

Sorry for steal the thread but I want to have a comment from somebody who is in the same situation as me!

 

Have done a project with a lot of switches and need something to inputs to pmdg 737ngx and find this card: FDS-SYS2X High Capacity (128Input Card)!

 

My question is: does it work without problem or is IOcard better suitted for the aircraft?

 

Best Fredrik
