Problem with Carenado Baron 58

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I installed the Carenado Baron 58 module today but couldn't get it to work. No commands from any of my devices (Saitek Yoke, Saitek Switch Panel and VRi MCP1) make any changes in the aircraft. Actually, it works much better if I remove the module and use the default FSX assignments, many of them work with the Carenado B58. I renamed the file config-mcp.default to config-mcp.lua and copied the Switch Panel assignments from the file config-hid-saitek.lua to the file config-hid.lua (not sure I should do this, but it seemed reasonable to do it). The assigments show up in LINDA, but have no effect in the aircraft.

 

My other aircraft are working fine with LINDA, including the Majestic Dash8 and the PMDG 737NGX. Any ideas about what could I have missed for exactly this aircraft?

 

. Linda v2.8.3

. Module: Carenado BARON 58 v1.1

. FSX SP2

. Aircraft: Carenado Baron 58 (I guess the latest version)

 

Regards,

 

Marconi

The MCP1 file has not been fully converted for or tested with the B58. The module is based on the FSX Default but with added functions. 

 

This is my Saitek Switch Panel settings (cut and paste into your B58 config-hid.lua).

Hi Scot,

 

Thanks for your reply. The assignments that you suggested are exactly what I had in my config-hid.lua file, which I had already copied from the config-hid-saitek.lua file. But it simply doesn't work.

 

It seems that LINDA completely looses communication with FSX when the Carenado BARON 58 module is selected. It communicates with the hardware, as I can see my buttons presses being indicated in LINDA, but nothing happens with the sim. Since it works fine with the FSX Default module selected (although I only have the basic commands), I decided to make a test where I replaced the Avionics assigment from the B58 library with the one from the FSX Default library in the Carenado module. I expected it to work, since it worked when the FSX Default module was selected, but it didn't. Hence my conclusion that it seems to loose communication when the Carenado module is selected, since even commands that work from other modules with this same aircraft, stop working. Or shouldn't it work anyway?

 

Assuming that I have done all the installation and configuration of LINDA correctly (all my other aircraft are working fine), what else could be wrong with this module only?

 

Regards,

 

Marconi
