Serial FIP with Linda 2.6.8 v3

Recommended Posts

Hello, I have a problem with the version 2.6.8 v3 and the FIP Saitek

 

"Duplicate not Allowed"

 

After all, there is a problem with the serial numbers of the FIP.

Linda take into account only the beginning of the serial number.

 

EX: serial FIP  SZ00008082  and Linda guards only the beginning,The first 6 characters, of the serial number: SZ0000

 

I have 5 FIP

 

SZ00008082   Linda Indicate =>>SZ0000

SZ00008147   Linda Indicate =>>SZ0000

SZ00001844   Linda Indicate =>>SZ0000

SZ00018578   Linda Indicate =>>SZ0001

SZ00018218   Linda Indicate =>>SZ0001

 

Thus I have several identical serial numbers

 

 

If you have a solution, thank you in advance

Hello, I have a problem with the version 2.6.8 v3 and the FIP Saitek

Hi Marcus

 

I truncated the HID serial numbers to 6 digits not realising that the Saitek Flight Instrument Panels (FIP) uses 10.

 

I assume that LINDA 2.6.8 is now refusing to add the 'duplicate' FIPs?  I will send you a fix shortly for testing. Please email me at linda@awginfoys.net so I can send you the link.

 

Can you also confirm the VID/PID for the FIPs. It should be 06A3 and A2AE?

hello,

 

VID/PID

 

SZ0000    06A3A2AE1  (SZ00008082)
SZ0000    06A3A2AE3  (SZ00008147)
SZ0000    06A3A2AE4  (SZ00001844)
SZ0001    06A3A2AE0  (SZ00018578)
SZ0001    06A3A2AE2  (SZ00018218)
 
In  Blue, the serial numbers of the FIP
 
 
I managed to use Linda by modifying the file config-hid.lua.
For example, before modifying it:
 
J[1]={}
J[1][1]="06A3A2AE0"
J[1][2]="Saitek Device"
J[1][3]="9"
J[1][4]="1"
J[1][5]="12"
J[1][6]="0"
J[1][7]="0"
J[1][8]="SZ0001"   
 
Once modified
 
J[1]={}
J[1][1]="06A3A2AE0"
J[1][2]="Saitek Device"
J[1][3]="9"
J[1][4]="1"
J[1][5]="12"
J[1][6]="0"
J[1][7]="0"
J[1][8]="SZ00018578"
 
In red, it is that I added in the file config-hid.lua
I made the same thing for my 5 FIP.
It is of the temporary but that works
 
Sorry for my bad English

Hi Marcus, thank you for letting me know you have a temporary solution. Can you still email me at linda@awginfosys.net so I can send you a link for a test build?

Hi ScotFlieger,

 

Thank you for having reacted so quickly

 

That works very well, the serial numbers are complete

Hello Scotfleiger,

 

I have the same problem as Marcus but in my case it's with goflight modules, the LGT II and TQ6.

 

Is it possible for you to send me the same fix you provided to Marcus?

 

Will this be included in a future release?

 

Thanks,

Brendanh

Hi Brendan

Can you let me see the devices you have connected as per above screenshot? I will send you a link via PM.

 

edit - the fix was included in 2.7.0.

Hello again,

Here's the screen shot.

Brendan

 

That is useful. I can see the duplicate serial numbers but they are used with different VID/PIDs.  There should be no conflict. What version of LINDA do you have installed? LINDA 2.7.0 allows you to use longer serial numbers.

Yes, I'm using 2.7.0

 

The error that is flagged up is:

 

'Exception EListError in module Linda.exe at 00317CF7.

Duplicates are not allowed'

OK. Please try a test by disconnecting LGTII or TQ6. This could be the duplicate we are looking for (ie. the serial numbers).

Yes, disconnected LGT II and LINDA now works OK with remaining controls (after restarting PC).

The duplicate serial numbers are the source of the problem. I will PM you will a link to a test build I would like you to try.

I don't know if this is relevant. As I said I installed version 2.7.0 which shows as such on top left of the LINDA page as on my screenshot above. However I just noticed that when I start up, the 'radio' screen on my MCP II momentarily shows:

 

'powered by LINDA v 2.6.8'

My fault. I did not update all the version number displays. The key one is that displayed in the LINDA GUI on the About Page.

Sorry, tried the revised LINDA you sent but it gives an identical result.

 

 

Thank you Brendan. Can you try deleting the file /fsx/modules/system/config-hid.lua and trying again? This will remove the remembered devices and short serial numbers. LINDA will rebuild the file based on your connected devices. Remember to make a backup of file before deleting.

Tried the new version but the result was just the same.


Sorry, my 09:44pm above was written before I'd read your 01:15pm properly.

 

I've now deleted the system/config-hid.lua as you suggested, restarted the computer and tried again but with same result.

Hi Brundall, thank you for confirming that the deleted files had no effect. Can you call up the GO Flt devices in Windows Device Manager and pass me the full serial numbers for each. I have a suspicion that they might be the same.

I've looked in the drop down list under properties for each of the devices in control manager but I can't find any heading for 'serial number'. Am I looking in the wrong place?

 

I should say that I'm now operating at the limits of my technical knowledge and understanding!!


Sorry, above should have said 'device manager'  not 'control manager'

Hi Brendan

 

Don't worry. I think from the screen shots you posted and those by Yair (on another thread) that I have identified that the issue is being caused by Go Flight using identical serial numbers for different devices of the same and different types (namely '00080 7'). You can see this by looking at the LINDA Joystick Setup page.

 

I have a fix but I have been battling with a untraceable coding error which has taken 2 days without resolution. When I have some I can release I will send you a link to test for me.

I see from the thread with Yair that you have been able to prepare a fix. Is it possible for me to have it?

 

Thanks.
