Fenix A320 Support not working for me!

Recommended Posts

I am getting this message ever and ever again. MCE will be closed after that. I restart the flight and the message pops up again:

"In order to allow co-pilot to control all switches accurately, please restart the flight (not the simulator, then restart MCE."

By the way, it's the same with PMDG 736 and 737. Please fix ist. With Version 2.9.7.5 yesterday these airliners worked ok!

Whichever complex plane you intend to fly must be set as the aircraft MSFS loads on startup.

This is important because unfotunately the planes don't clear the Lvars they create. So when switching from say PMDG 737 that has about 2000 of them to Fenix that has 2200, it adds up to a lot.

Which folders do you have inside \Community\ folder.?

I work with a very complex setup. The system uses external ATC from Pilot2Atc or PF3. The weather system relies on REX Weather Force and AI is generated by AIG. The onboard sound system uses SimSounds V4 and the pushback is controlled by FS2Crew Pushback Express. It all works together without any problems. The only spoilsport at the moment is MCE.

I suggest the following...

Go to community folder and delete <fsuipc-lvar-module> if it's there

Re-install MCE V2.9.7.6 (not just use the patch).

Check \Community\ folder has the folder you deleted re-created.

Assuming Fenix is set as the default plane when MSFS starts, wait until aircraft is on tarmac ready to fly. Only then, start MCE.

If FO is happy, should see him fiddle with his armrest roughly 30 to 45 seconds after MCE UI shows up.

Right now, FCU dialling isn't availale for FENIX. Maybe later when more is known about this aircraft.

Eventually, try with default Fenix livery as some of those occasionally cause MCE not to identify the plane properly.

Why should it be "ready to fly"... in my setup every airliner ist "COLD AND DARK"!

Now its works, but only if I don't start any of the other mentioned add-ons. There must be a problem may be with FSUIPC?

No, not a problem with FSUIPC. You can even install ANY version. Should be able to run Pilot2ATC too.

Maybe something to do with PF3, as we do support that add-on. We will be liasing with Dave March to ensure the combo works as expected.

MCE only works for me if the respective aircraft (Fenix A320 or PMDG 737) is started with the MSFS beforehand. As a result, MSFS has to be started twice every time there is a change and a restart has to be made for the PMDG. In my view, this is unacceptable!

You can load the plane in ANY state (cold and dark, ready to start or all engines up and running is up to you). MCE has the ability to automatically detect the flight phase.

Regarding PMDG 737... you may not be aware of this.

The need to reload the plane is the result of PMDG initially enabling the SDK (in early release) then, removing the "read state of items" part of the SDK in following updates.

We had it fully interfaced without the need to restart the flight. Currently, the plane reload is a workaround until they restore SDK. See this thread

The Fenix will remain works in progress until we work out how to get FO to dial FCU SPD, HDG, ALT.

Ideally, all planes should have an SDK and we just have to follow that.

Unfortunately, things don't work like that in the flight sim world. Different aircraft devs use slightly different methods. The Asobo SDK can be used to some extent, but that one too has a few limitations.

This is one of the reasons add-ons should have a Demo. So you know exactly what you are getting.

If you know someone who has managed to dial FCU with Fenix, which implies ready HDG, VS and ALT values, would be happy to hear that.

Getting that sort of functionality with FsLabs A320 took many months of research and poking around.
