linda pmgd 737 ngx vrinsite mcp combo 1

Recommended Posts

Hi i hope you may be able to shed some light on this small issue, i have the Vrinsite mcp ver 1 that i am using on Prepar3d v3.3.5 with the PMDG 737 NGX, i have installed the latest ver linda 2.7.0 v1 and that works no problems, using it with the original pmdg 737 file set everything functions correctly and interacts with the aircraft correctly except for the LOC button on the vrinsite, to get that to work i have to assign a command to cwsb button it then works ok, the loc button is working as i have checked it in fsuipc, so i thought i would try the latest pmdg ver 4.5 followed install instructions fired everything up flight sim loaded the panel reported all ok and none of the functions on the mcp worked at all,looking at the controls i see that they are more like the standard fs controls these work fine on my friends combo11 but not mine, so back to the original all working ok apart from LOC. any idea's please.


thank you

Hi Lakim, welcome to LINDA. I have moved your post the support sub-forum.


The problem is that none of the developers have or use the superceded MCP1 panels and we are unable to populate the default configuration for every aircraft. However, all is not lost. Another user recently copied the default configuration for the MCP2 and renamed it to work with your panel.


You need to find the directory /fsx/modules/linda-cfg/aircrafts/PMDG737 NGX/ . You will see a file config-mcp2.default. Copy it and rename the copy Config-mcp.lua. When you restart LINDA the default functions should be available. I cannot guarantee if all have been assigned the way you want but they can be modified as required.

I had a like problem, using MCP 1 original, LINDA 2.7.0 Standard v1, PMDG_737NGX_v4_4


everything worked (super) BUT the LVLCHG button, how does that happen?


oh o, kaput maybe?


after also tinkering with direct FSUIPC assignments and many trial and errors, and just giving up (just do the mouse click, how annoying)


I came upon looking in the PMDG aircraft setup (because I wanted to add the HGS to a 700 model)

via the FMC that, per every different 737NGX model per the Tail Number (listed in the ..\FSX(SE)\PMDG subdirectory)


there's a menu that

assigns 'keyboard shortcuts' for specific 737NGX commands



if the default Ctrl-V is defined in the FSX keyboard control commands, but has a duplicate in the PMDG aircraft 'keyboard shortcuts' for an AP Panel button


that's the problem

(and easily fixed, when you's aware of this)
