fslab_a320 +sim_acars+nav_light problem

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hello,

i have a problem with my nav_light with sim-acars

sim_acars wont detect when the nav on in the fslab because it is not the fsx defaut parameter

So i'm cheating with linda

1) on my linda profile button : i'm setting this : VC_OVHD_EXTLT_NavLogo_nav + VC_OVHD_EXTLT_NavLogo_off

--> ok ! the button move on the overhead it works 

2) on my linda profile button : i'm setting this : Lights NAV off + Lights NAV on (default fsx light settings)

--> ok ! Sim_acars detect the nav lights

3) on my linda profiles button i create a User Fonction :

function VC_OVHD_EXTLT_NavLogo_nav_ju ()
    local SwVar = "VC_OVHD_EXTLT_NavLogo_Switch"
    local VarInc = 72487
    local VarDec = 72486
    local SLT = ipc.readLvar(SwVar)
    if SLT == 0 then
        ipc.control(FSL, VarInc)
    elseif SLT == 20 then
        ipc.control(FSL, VarDec)
    end
    VC_OVHD_EXTLT_NavLogo_show ()
    --Toogle NAV_LIGHTS
	ipc.control(66379)
end

---> on the overhead panel the nav swith on
---> Sim_acars detect nothing !!

What is the problem?

What is a PB? I am also unfamiliar with sim-acars or what you are using it for  

You are correct to suspect the problem is caused by the FSLabs A3xx not making all, if any, of the internal data available to LINDA or sim-acars.

Controlling the FSX default lights can be problematic and each is represented by a single bit in the lower part of the FSX offset word. Instead of using the offset I suggest you change the supplied LINDA function to include a call to the FSX Default function for Nav-logo. This will set the correct bit in the FSUIPC offset.
