In the interim I found a later version of LINDA ~~~ 3.2.6.1111 which I have installed following the relevant instructions...

The Radios section is functional but still unable to reassign buttons as previously mentioned.

The Autopilot section is also functional except for not reassigning buttons...

The aircraft in question is POSKY A321-231 (freeware)

MCPCombo (original/Mk1)

I am unable to make the fault diagnosis feature work (?) but have this...'Linda2.log' (unable to attach notepad file)

@Ken Hall first the radio section is hard coded and it is normally not necessary to assign any additional functions. Except on common aircraft (like C172) it is unlikely that the aircraft radio will reflect the MCP settings.

As you are using a freeware Airbus, there is no specific module or MCP configuration. You would need to assign your own or default functions. It is unlikely that the default functions will work with this aircraft.

I would recommend you use the Aerosoft A3Xx aircraft and module.

The procedure should allow you to setup fault diagnosis mode and generate the logs I need to help users.

PS. Please avoid posting logs into the forum. These should be sent to me by email.

Hi!

I'm trying to connect my old MCP Combo 1 to MSFS 2020 using LINDA 4.0.8.195 and FSUIPC 7.2.14. Yesterday, I installed all these latest versions and also VRiSim to find out what COM port to use. I followed the instructions in the LINDA Downloads post, observing the order to start the applications, and it worked. I had problems trying to change assignments, but let's leave this for a future step.

For now, my problem is that today the MCP didn't connect to MSFS 2020. I observed the same order to start the applications, did it several times, rebooted the computer, re-checked the COM port and the configuration in LINDA and that FSUIPC was connected. The LCD displays were not updated by LINDA as they normally should and no response from any button. I'm using the MSFS Default aircraft profile with the default C208.

Should I follow the Fault Diagnosis Procedure and send you the log files? I probably don't have to follow the whole procedure because I believe the problem is not with an aircraft profile or assignments. It appears it simply didn't connect at all. Anyway, just let me know how can I help you to help me.  🙂

@conao I have been doing significant work to improve LINDA 4.0.x to work with improvements in the FBW A320 Neo and the VRI Combo MCP 2 (Boeing) and 2a (Airbus). I am unable to test with the MCP1 (original) and some changes may impact of owner's of the older (obsolete!) panel.

Please try the older version 4.0.6 available via the Download post. If that does not work please follow the Fault Diagnosis Procedure and email the logs.

@Grigna All available versions of LINDA can be under LINDA Downloads as usual.

Thanks, but I'm looking for Linda 4.0.6. because with the last versione 4.1.4 I have some problem with my VRINSIGHT MCP 1.

@grigna I will have to look later for an older version in the 4 series. What is the problem with your MCP1. It is that which needs addressing.

@Grigna Earlier versions of LINDA 4.0.* can be found here:

4.0.6.178

4.0.7.180

4.0.8.195

Please let me know what issues you are having with your MCP1 and which of the above work best.

ALL VRINSIGHT MCP1 ORIGINAL OWNERS PLEASE NOTE.

I am unable to fully support the obsolete VRInsight MCP1 original panel and cannot guarantee LINDA or modules will work with this hardware. I do not own a MCP1 and am unable to carry out any testing. I can only do this for the VRI MCP Combo 2 (Boeing and Airbus).

The result of this is that MCP1 users will need to self help and carry out initial assignments to get their panels configured. I cannot guarantee that default configurations will work out of the box. It does not you or me by simply reporting that things do not work.

If anyone upgrading to the supported MCP2 (Boeing) and MCP2A (Airbus) and willing to donate their MCP1 to the project then I would be most grateful.
