MCP button status

Recommended Posts

Hello, 

 

is it possible to extend the time how long a switch status message appears on MCP display? At the moment it´s like a longer flash after i switch on LDG light etc.

You can change the length of time the messages are displayed on the MCP yourself.

 

First of all BACKUP you LINDA setup.  Copy /FSX/Modules/LINDA to a safe place.

 

Open LINDA and the Editor.  Depending on the VRI Combo panel you are using will depend on the file you need to edit.  In the /FSX/Modules/Systems folder you will find 3 files beginning with handlers-mcp*.lua - mcp = original MCP, mcp2 = Combo II Boeing MCP and mcp2a = Combo II Airbus FCU.

 

Open the appropriate file and click on VRI_TIMER in lefthand panel.  You will see 4 lines ending with:

 

... ipc.get("FIP*") > 1000 then

 

The 1000 equates to 1000 ms or 1sec.  Change it to 2000 for a 2 sec display time or 3000 for a 3 sec display time.  Repeat this for all 4 lines.

 

Save the file, exit the Editor and restart LINDA.
