Joystick Functions - Request for Feedback

Recommended Posts

Hi all

 

With the work I have been doing with LINDA to produce version 2.0 offering full compatibility with the Boeing MCP and Airbus FCU, I have discovered some anomalies with the way LINDA responds to Joystick button presses.  I am seeking feedback from other users so that I can identified where further improvements can be made.

 

For the joystick functions to work it is necessary to have LINDA running.  However, I have found one example that requires that the Joystick Tab must be selected.  In my example, on my Saitek throttle quadrant I have reverse thrust set up on one of the lever microswitches as follows:

 

On Press = FSX: THROTTLE DECR:0

On Repeat: FSX: THROTTLE DECR:0

On Release: FSX: THROTTLE CUT:0.

 

I find that if the Joystick Tab is not selected, 2 things happen: first the reverse thrust does not always operate when needed and second after cancellation the throttle is repeatedly jumping from normal to reverse and back again making taxying to the stand difficult.

 

Another example passed to me is that the LOCAL and GLOBAL SHIFT, in some situations, tends to latch on and won't cancel on release.

 

If you have anymore examples, please reply with as much detail as you can.  This will assist my analysis.

 

Many thanks.
