NEW - LINDA 2.6.0 Beta 11 Release - Saitek Panels & Dynamic Devices

Recommended Posts

I apologize Andrew, I copied my FSUIPC4.ini from FSX to P3D, everything worked fine but he startet LINDA out of the Module.

Just edited FSUIPC4.ini and everything works perfect again.

Hi,

found a little bug regarding Hide Window Titles.

ALT CRTL SHIFT F3 saves the postition of the 2D Panels but not removes the WIndow Titles.

Same Function as F1

Just tried it out. Unfortunately, something doesn't like my PC.

First it takes almost a full minute to load...white screen with small border and "not responding" message.

Then it works as normal for a few minutes untill my screen turns black with slight hissing noise in background.

PC then reboots.

Happened four times.

Went back to Beta 9 (Beta 10 also slow to load) and now have been in flight for 30 minutes without problem.

Of course, the trouble could very well be caused by something else.

LINDA has ALWAYS worked perfectly for me.

Will report back if I have any new info

Hi Neal

 

A couple of people reporting the slow load (including Günter - his problem went away). I think it is possibly caused having many devices attached.  Can I ask you to unplug a few USBs and work with a single joystick?  Also can you try starting beta 11 several times to see if it sorts itself out.  Also try removing/renaming \modules\linda-cfg\config-hid.lua.

 

However, I have not had the screen turning black.  Is that the whole display?

 

In order to get the Dynamic device connection/reconnection I have had to do some major re-engineering behind the scenes. LINDA 2.6.0 is no longer 1.13 or 2.5.

I have A saitek Cessna yoke with a second throttle quadrant plus Saitek pedals. That's it...Sold my MCP Combo and now use LINDA for joystick/throttle buttons (like it better than I did with the Combo).  .I do have three External USB drives. They are plugged in but not used with FSX. I will unplug them and try beta 11 again.

The Beta 10 was slow loading but nothing like Beta 11.

 

When the display went black it was the entire screen and then the PC rebooted without me doing a thing.

I still feel that something is wrong here that is not related to Linda. I did just complete a flight of about 90 minutes without trouble though.

Probably be tomorrow before I can report back.

Regards

Neal

Hi Neal

 

I have sent you a PM.  What Windows version are you using?  I have only tested under Win 7.

Hi Roland

 

Just to confirm that you can report that LINDA 2.6.0 beta is slow to start with Win 8.1 but not with Win 7. My understanding is that LINDA is displaying 'not responding' for 60-90 seconds before opening normally.

 

ALL OTHER USERS - please report any similar problems.

 

Due to my proper work I will need to issue 2.6.0 this week with this caveat.

Hi Andrew,

I just tested it with Win 8.1 and it takes about 25 sec to start, no "not responding" message when you don't click around on the screen.

Done some assignments and everythings works normal.
