New LINDA 4.0.4a BETA - MSFS 2020 Compatible (9 Feb 2021)

Recommended Posts

This beta release provides initial compatibility for the new Microsoft Flight Simulator (MSFS) 2020 and the formal release of FSUIPC7 7.0.4 (new key required).

It is not compatible with other flight simulators (FSX or P3D) or earlier versions of FSUIPC.

This beta version provides limited functionality with MSFS 2020 and FSUIPC7. Only LINDA default MSFS library functions can be used. Most original FSX Controls and FSUIPC offsets are available. Due to fact the MSFS 2020 SimConnect not providing access to Lvars, only the MSFS default aircraft functionality is available (use LIB: MSFS Default when assigning functions). No other aircraft modules will be released until Lvars are made available.

Ensure that MSFS 2020 is updated to latest release. Failure to do this will result in very poor performance and very low FPS. Additionally, the FSUIPC7 beta testing is now complete and you will have to purchase a new Key from SimMarket.

LINDA provides full compatibility with all variants of the VRInsight Combo panel: the original MCP1, the Combo II MPC (Boeing) and Combo FCU (Airbus) and the Logitech/Saitek Flight Panels.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR VRINSIGHT USERS LINDA 4.0.x now starts with the MCP Display Mode set by the new Mode option on the Setup MCP Combo page. It defaults to Autopilot display mode (AP values for SPD/HDG/ALT/VS are displayed). The Information display mode displays the aircraft current speed, heading, altitude and vertical speed. You need to assign one of the VRInsight library DSPmode functions to switch between INFO and AP (autopilot) modes.

All bug and issues should be reported on the project thread on the LINDA Support sub-forum.

Installation

Unzip the file. Install FSUIPC7 as required and copy the LINDA files and folders into that folder.

The correct installation should look like:

/FSUIPC7

/linda

/linda-cfg

FSUIPC6.dll

FSUIPC6.ini

FSUIPC6.key

ipcReady.lua

linda.exe

linda.lua

Starting MSFS, FSUIPC7 and LINDA

The order users start the applications is important to get everything working correctly.

Start MSFS and LINDA first in any order. Once MSFS is running in cockpit mode then start FSUIPC7 ensuring that it displays the title 'FSUIPC7: Simulator is available: Connected". If not Connected, either click on Start/Connect or Options/Auto-connect to FS. LINDA should be Sync-ed to Sim and displaying *MSFS Default" outline in orange. The LINDA LUA engine will automatically restart when the connection is established.

FSUIPC7 runs initially in the System Tray. You need to right-click on icon and click Show for the window to be displayed. After you close the FSUIPC7 window you need to Exit the application in the System Tray.
