Sorry, to write here in one line, but seems like Enter is not working on AVSIM any more??? I got a key from the 146 developers to make a LINDA module, but I have changed to Win8. And the 146 is not working with Win8 currently: http://qwsim.flight1...ID=724&PID=5502

Win8? So you are on a touchscreen now? I'm running it on my tablet and it's very 'touchy', right?

no, I do not have a touchscreen. A big misunderstanding and bashing with Win8 out there. The "modern UI" (aka Metro) is simply the start menu. Start up Win8, press the Windows key and you'll see the Metro screen never again (until your next startup). Not much difference in appearence to Win7...! (This ENTER bug here sucks ;-) )

Hi Guenter... not pushing, but when do you think a 146 module might be available?

Hi,

 

I have tried to make some work for this module to help but without succes until now.

My test function with AP button dont work for example.

And a lot of button dont return variable in the console.

I hope i am wrong and that Günter with his experience will find more than me when W8 will be suported.

Hello

I have every function on the panel working with Fsuipc mouse macro's, no need for anything else.

Hmm, Sure, using FSUIPC is fine if you don't have LINDA but Guenter recommends using FSUIPC only for slider controls and assign buttons and switches through LINDA :smile:

Maybe this is what mad dog also meant, but I have also trapped mouse macros through FSUIPC, and then assign them via LINDA. Unfortunately I can only trap the autopilot and FMC buttons, but nothing on the overhead or pedestal.

Guys, you can use whatever you want and mix up everything.

As long as it works for you :)

 

 

Regarding the 146:

as long as I can't have my hands on her, I can also not promise if there's a chance for a LINDA module.

Michel's statement makes me a bit fear about that ...

Hello Howard

Use Fsuipc mouse macros for the MCP, I have every button on my Goflight MCP mapped to the QW Avro's MCP through mouse macros.

What are you guys doing for the overhead panel?

Or are you only setting up MCP?

 

I was wanting to assign fuel pumps, battery etc to my saitek switch panel but the mouse macros and luas tend to be just TOGGLE mode only.

 

Have you been able to set absolute values on any overhead switches?

Just bumping this, I'm wondering has anyone managed to access the Lua variables for the QW?

 

The overhead panel mainly is what I want to control, mouse macros are only toggling for me.

Have you made some tests now that SP2 works with Win 8 ?

I hope i have made mistakes and that you can do far better than me :)

 

Have a nice day

Yes, yes, I'm on it.

 

Since SP2 it's workig with WIN8.

 

The last days I have upgraded my computers to WIN8 (all where enterprise RTM before), yesterday set up FSX and now ready to go further on the 146.

 

Unfortunately some parts are a bit complicated, but overall there are not so much functions to do in this plane as it is relative simple compared to a NGX or the DC9 ...

 

 

You'll read about the release here and in the QW forum!

Release is "soon" :lol: :lol: :lol:

yes, and please after tommorrow start a flame war why I haven't released.

After that ask, if I'm still alive.

Then proclaim that you are very disappointed and you would not buy anything from me.

Thursday I will give you an update and you'll say how much you love me and that we are the best company on earth ...

 

 

Uhhh... that isn't the forum with the big FOUR letters?

 

Users are so predictable :lol:

Lol Guenter!

 

Very much looking forward to your LINDA scripts. I never could get the overhead panel functions mapped to my hardware I could only get toggle not on/off which is no good for two way switches.

 

I'm hoping you have been able to figure out the vars to set.. or I'll ask you for a refund :lol:

do that!

I know some nice russian guys which will deliver you the money personally B)

 

 

I'm on a good way about the on/off things. Work already.

But it is all a bit more complicated as I thought.
