PMDG NGX Trim display MCP1 VRINSIGHT [resolved]

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hi,

In earlier version my MCP1 showed the trim settings on my display for a brief moment.

Now in the new version 4,15 it does not show.

I tried several things in the lua files but i do not get it to work again.

This function is called

function NGX_ELEV_TRIM_show ()
    ETrimDsp = round2((ipc.readLvar('ElevTrimTT')), 2)
    if _MCP1() then
        DspShow("ETrm", ETrimDsp)
    elseif _MCP2() then
        DspMed1("ElevTrim")
        DspMed2(ETrimDsp)
    elseif _MCP2a() then
        DspMed1("ElevTrm")
        DspMed2(ETrimDsp)
    end
end

 

Does anybody have a solution or an idea why this problem occurs.

Thanks in advance for yr help.

 

Regards Edwin

Sorry, please disregard above.

Hi Edwin

I note that you  have found an answer. As you say when you apply Elevator Trim using an axis then this is handled by FSUIPC and nothing is displayed on the MCP1.

If you assign NGX_ELEV_TRIM_up/_down/_upfast/_downfast to a joystick button then the NGX_ELEV_TRIM_show will be called and the Elev Trim will be displayed for a limited time on the MCP.

Thx Scott

Sorry for that, i saw the light 🙂

 

Another question which i already found in the forum, but ditd not read the solution jet

I use the mcp combo with Linda and pmdg NGX, and want to control the Course knob for example in mode 2 or 3 with a different command,

But the system keeps changing the course in mode 2 or 3, and i programmed the knob to do something else

Checked the config files, and they seem alright.

Thx for Linda, it works very well.

Regards Edwin

Hi Edwin

The VRi Combo MCP modes 2 and 3 will self-cancel and return to mode 1 after a short period. This delay in set on the Setup MCP Combo page. You either need to extend the delay or re-select the mode you want (normally User buttons 6, 7 or 8 on the MCP Combo).

Hi Andrew.

 

I know that it returns to mode 1,

but when i push to mode2 it still does not work.

So when i push to mode 2 and directly turn the knob it still turns the course, instead of something else.

I will extend the delay, but i think this does not solve the problem.

Other had the same problem but I cannot find the solution.in the forum

Hete the same problem

 

 

Regards

Edwin

I don't remember the previous reports. Let me take a deeper look.

Just to confirm we are talking about the same thing. The CRS knob is the left one of the 4 on the centre MCP panel (CRS/HDG/ALT/VS).

Please read and follow the Fault Diagnosis Procedure thread and operate the Mode 1, 2 and 3 buttons and the CRS knob. Finally close P3D and send me the fsuipcX.log and linda2.log. Also send me the /linda-cfg/aircrafts/PMDG 737NGX/config-mcp.lua file.

Your logs suggest that some of the LINDA LUA files are incorrect (eg. common.lua). Please reinstall LINDA 3.1.1 and check that the version numbers quote in common.lua are 3.1.1.

Also open FSUIPC Logging and ensure all logging options are unticked. Then re-run the fault diagnosis procedure and email me the log files.

@edreedyk thank you for the logs you sent. I have checked the MCP1(original) LUA code and can confirm that all the knobs (CRS/SPD/HDG/ALT/VS) only operate their specific functions in Mode 1. Although the GUI allows Mode 2 & 3 functions to be assigned, these are not executed.

As I do not own an original MCP panel, I will not attempt to change any of the LUA code. I could not test the changes or guarantee not to make the code unusable.
