737-200 offsets

Recommended Posts

Before I buy this I have one big question.  Are or will there be offsets available for all the functions and lights in the cockpit? I am building a 732 Sim using real parts and needthem to interface to my sim.

Thanks

Rob

Most of the buttons and lights are handled using XML L vars. Im not sure if there is a program out there that can read them from the sim and help interface with the hardware....N4GIX? Do I recall correct something called LINDA can do this?

 

The autopilot does use some key events but these can also be triggered with the XML script.

FSUIPC can handle this neatly, using either some of the built in facilities, or even better, using Lua to program your own interface code. I use the term "code" because Lua truly is a programming language. Pete's documentation in the FSUIPC SDK is excellent.

 

@Jon: here is a truly epic chart of the "Hierarchy of Programmers" with regards to their choice of "programming language..." :LMAO:

Most of the AP functions are assignable using the standard FSX autopilot offsets available in FSUIPC (Registered). Eg;-

 

  • AP Master, HDG SEL, NAV, APPR, ALT HOLD, VS, A/T ARM, etc.
  • HDG +/-, CRS +/-, ALT +/-, VS +/-

 

...the functions that I have not managed to be able to assign yet (using FSUIPC) are the custom autopilot functions;  

 

  • FL CH, and EPR.

Bwahahahaha!! Brilliant N4GIX!

Did you notice the "special position" for "Ruby programmers?"

 

And of course the very bottom of the hierarchy are "People who insist on calling HTML (and thus XML) a programming language." :LMAO:

rofl yep. Hence my use of the term "script" for the XML. As for Ruby....well I looked it over with a friend and I cant say I see much use for it...
