I will definitely try that. Please forgive my ignorance, but when I click save (after assigning a button in LINDA) and then resync a message pops up on FSX saying that it has been synced. But should I be doing an extra step with user.lua? I appreciate the guidance.

You may be confusing assigning a function to a button and creating a function in user.lua in the LINDA Editor.

After you assign a function it will automatically reload the configuration so that it works straight away.

However, when writing or editing code you have to save it in the Editor before restarting the LUA engine. This loads the altered code so that it will run.

You can develop new code without having to assign it. After saving and reloading you simply right click on the function name to run it.

Thank you very much @vanzunator, wonderful work!

Not a programmer here but after looking around, I've managed to edit them to work with the PMDG 777 and 737 as well after some investigation. @ESzczesniak

Sorry I don't use github, but where the 747 file has the following:,

MCP_VS_SELECTOR_dec()
MCP_SPEED_SELECTOR_dec()
MCP_ALT_SELECTOR_incfast()
MCP_HDG_SELECTOR_inc()
EFIS_CPT_BARO_inc()

You just need to change the following (for both inc & dec)

737:
NGX_AP_VS_inc()
NGX_AP_SPD_inc()
NGX_AP_ALT_incfast()
NGX_AP_HDG_inc()
NGX_EFIS_BARO_inc()

777:
PMDG_AP_VS_inc()
PMDG_AP_SPD_inc()
PMDG_AP_ALT_incfast()
PMDG_AP_HDG_inc()
EFIS_CPT_BARO_inc()

I am facing a different issue however with the PMDG aircraft, my input through the Bravo/Linda lags horribly, not just the dials but also the other buttons, and I can't make proper adjustments as a result. This doesn't happen with the QW787. I'm running FSX-SE with Linda 3.1.1. Does anyone face this issue as well?

Well, I finally got all of my buttons working which is a huge accomplishment for me. Now it's time to work on the dials. I see user code that was created and I am grateful for the 737 change to help them work. I just don't know what file to insert that into and where exactly it goes so that I can get it to work.

Looks like I cannot delete my previous post or edit it so I'll try another post.

I DID IT!!!! I copied the user.lua into the user.lua of the aircraft folder. I found another message saying that. I changed the vc stuff to NGX and now I have all of the buttons working. 

In the code, there is no variable for the CRS as it says there isn't one for it. Here's my contribution to the group!

NGX_AP_CRS_LR_inc()

NGX_AP_CRS_LR_dec()

It works on mine! Now after 6 hours of programing I can go get groceries. Thanks for all the posts and help!

I would like to start with my gratitude to you all. I have going through this post for the past days for setting up my Saitek yoke and Honeycomb Bravo throttle quadrant and this thread has been a lot of help with the interfacing everything with Linda.

To everyone which is still looking to get some lights on the Bravo throttle quadrant, you can do this the following way (could not find this on the internet):

1. Find the Lvars with Linda via this tutorial: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dpc6ZUX_J3g&t=165s

2. Assign the Lvars to the lights in the Honeycomb configurator tool, tutorial for those who need: https://www.youtube.com/watchv=SsMpADUerBE&list=PLCM2J7huv9GsJLInEaXS71CKKU_5g3Sl&index=4

Again thank you all for the aid.

 

EDIT: I am only able to asign the lights to some Lvars, not all lights on the bravo throttle can be assigned to the correct light. I think.

Did some tests, not everything seemed to work
