FS2CREW, Q400 and SPAD.neXt

Recommended Posts

Hello!

 

I'm using SPAD.neXt to use my Saitek devices (and more) with P3D.

It works well with Q400 ... except if I'm using FS2CREW: LVARS controlled / asssigned by my Saitek devices go mad and Saitek devices show erratic and/or random values.

 

Any idea?

What's SPAD.neXT?

 

Is this just for autopilot values?

Hello!

 

SPAD.neXt (http://www.fsgs.com/forum/) is à software that allow users to control Saitek devices (and other USB devices).

It's a very usefool tool to program every buttons and axes of Saitek devices.

 

Thanks for your help!

Try it with the newly released V2.1.

 

2.1 changes some stuff.  It might help, maybe.

Hi Bryon,

I am also having problems with FS2CREW and SPAD next. Both on the Q400 and the NGX. I think there is some interference going on.

I'll ask the SPAD people if they can send me demo hardware... but it really sounds like a LINDA issue.

No news.  I don't think there's much I can do with SPAD next.

Is this still an issue, and if so, how bad is it really affected ?

I use SPAD to control all my hardware, so if it's unflyable then I'd have to rethink getting FS2Crew - and I'm guessing there'll be the same issue on my 737 ?

Based on what the other user said, I wouldn't get FS2Crew for the Majestic Dash 8 if you're using SPAD.

 

The 737, however, would be totally unaffected as FS2Crew uses the PMDG SDK to interface with the plane.

 

So no problems with the 737.

 

Best,

Hi!

Tried to use the newly release version 3.1 and setting the option LINDA=YES, but still FS2CREW interferes with SPAD.next :(

Any ideas ?

The Linda option is for SPAD next interfering with FS2Crew.

Hi again!

Yes, I have set LINDA =YES, still there is interference that causes my Saitek multipanel to misbehave during flight. If I am not using FS2CREW, multipanel behaves as it should.

Please advise!

Linda set to 'yes' mitigates the adverse affects on FS2Crew itself associated with Spad Next.

Hi again! 

Maybe I am slow: isnt the point of having the LINDA=YES option to make it possible to use fs2crew along with spad next? I cannot see any use in this option if it only "fixes" fs2crew logic, and still "destroys" spad.next logic???

I don't own Spad Next.   I have no idea what they're doing.

The Linda option was added for the benefit of about 4 users who reported that their Hardware was causing problems with some FS2Crew call outs.

Based on their feedback, with Linda set to yes, they were able to fly with the FS2Crew Dash 8, but a few of their callouts were of course no longer playing since the Linda option them down.

Send me a Support Ticket.

Best,
