LINDA 1.13 patch (from version 1.11)

Recommended Posts

LINDA GUI update:

 

NEW:

  • More than 10 joysticks are now supported
  • Saitek Pro Flight Switch panel supported !!!

 

LINDA Lua update:
 
NEW:

  • Now you can replace SPD indication on MCP2 with course indication - OBS1/OBS2/ADF1
    • Add SPD_CRS_replace = true  to module's InitVars ()
    • Disabled by default
  • New functions:
    • SaveFlight(filename) - saves flight at current point, 'filename'  is optional
    • ShowMessage (text) - shows green scrollbar message
       

UPDATED:

  • Indication of morse ident for COM/NAV/DME/ADF is changed on MCP2 - now you will see the '*' on radios display near the current mode name (i. e. - COM1*)
  • Transponder button (TRN) on radios block now have the second function - if you press it again, it will suggest you to replace current sqawk with 1200, press again and it will return to the current code
  • Updated functions:
    • DspShow(line1, line2, mcp2_line1, mcp2_line2) - now you can specify display messages for both MCP1 and MCP2 in one command. Backward compatibility is supported, so you can still use simple code DspShow(line1, line2) with MCP2 lines omitted.
       

DOWNLOAD: http://fs-linda.com/downloads/LINDA-1.13-patch.zip

 

INSTALLATION: Just download zip above and unpack it to your */FSX/modules/ folder replacing all files.
 
Note: the GUI part of LINDA was not changed, so you will see the old version there.
 
This update is required for A2A C172 Trainer module users!
 
Other users could install this update also if you're interested with these new features.

Hi Alex, very nice features, but

 

 

  • Add AUTO_SAVE_ENABLED = false to module's InitVars () to disable autosave

where exactly do I have to enter this? In every action.lua of each Aircraft-Module?

 

I'd rather like to have it disabled by default, cause I use Autosave in FSUIPC4 and I don*t see any reason to save a flight when finished.


With kind regards

Auto save intended use is to continue with the next flight exact from the point where the previous flight was finished. 

 

To disable it totally you can edit /linda/system/common.lua file. Search this line and replace true with false:

    -- autosave flight
    AUTO_SAVE_ENABLED = true

Otherwise you can edit module's actions.lua and disable autosave there.

 

I'll think how to make autosave a configurable option.

But this does FSUIPC by default, look at "previous flight (saved by FSUIPC4)",

so I see no need for this feature.

FSUIPC's auto save works fine, but it is optimized to restore flight after sudden FSX CTDs. It just saves flight each 60 seconds without checking any conditions.

 

My idea was to make autosave exclusively when plane is set to cold&dark state (and this check is configurable for different modules too). This is one more little incentive to finish the flight properly. And LINDA saves flight with human friеndly filename (date+time+airport+aircraft), so you don't have to browse through those samely named FSUIPC saves.

Maybe it's just my style of flying - I like to feel the plane not teleports from place to place, but have to fly there. And one more 'pro' for this feature is the FSEconomy network with the same logic of saving plane position between flights.

FSUIPC already has this facility built in, see the ALSO Autosave section of the manual, it allows you to save a flight at any time period you choose but just for that particular aircraft model and even for separate paints too, so all your aircraft remain where they were the last time you used them. All of my fleet it saved at various airports around the world.


Cheers, Andy.

And, Alex, this is just what FSUIPC4 does. You set up your plane to cold and dark and just end FSX.

FSUIPC4 saves this situation to a file named "previous flight". You  can find it where all other flights are saved. Load it when you start your FSX next time, and you are just there, where you left it last time.

Ok, guys, seems FSUIPC really has pretty the same functionality... I'll disable this function by default in the next update.

Hello, Brian!

 

I'm thinking mostly of myself but always ready to share the results.  :biggrin:

I was just waiting for A2A C172 to resume flights... and now I'm in again.

<grin>  Can't be bad, though.

 

Maybe once I've mastered my new 777 (not more than a year or so, at my present rate of progress) I'll take a look at the A2A C172. But for now.....    ^_^

 

Cheers,

 

Brian
