  1. Hi Michael, Nice suggestion, but really not necessary/wanted. It's not about the money (otherwise I would have stopped the SVA a long while ago), but it is about the time, or better: The lack of... By today standards the software (web UI, app and backend) is rather outdated. I simply don't have the time to rewrite/update the code right now and in the forseeable future. It is a huge effort. Also setting up a new server including all required software is a huge task. I'm not even sure if I still have all source code. So for now, the SVA is in a holding pattern and I'm afraid I don't know when/if it will resume to the next waypoint... Egbert
  2. Unfortunately the server is offline.... The website had been hacked and I was forced by the ISP to shut it down. I'm not sure when/if it can be reopened. As you know, my involvement during the last few years was very low, only paying the bills. Also I really can't tell when I'm able to resolve the issues, if at all. Don't expect it anytime soon, I simply don't have the time. That is all the news/info I can give you right now. Egbert
  3. I did already yesterday assigning the 'Tiller' axis and that didn't work Nevertheless I just have solved the issue... In AAO you still need to assign an axis, but instead of using 'Select simulator axis / Tiller', one should use the 'Select simulator event' and then the 'Steering set' event. Works like a charm. So I have now the rotary push button to toggle off/on the pedals disconnect and the rotary itself to steer the aircraft.
  4. Hi, I'm trying to assign a X-Touch-Mini rotary switch (i.e. dail) to control the A32x steering tiller. So far no luck. I was only able to use the dails push button, to toggle the rudder pedals disconnect event. Does any one know how to assign the tiller (and if it is poosible at all)? In the MCDU I have changed the setting that the rudder pedals also control the tiller. However it is stated there that FSUIPC is required to program the tiller, so I'm not sure if/how it will be possible using the X-Touch and AAO Any advice is much appreciated, Egbert
  5. Last week I had exact the same issue with the TM Airbus throttle set I had made some notes for future references: "IN FSUIPC DO NOT USE DIRECT AXIS AND DELETE ANY CALIBRATION IN KA350 PROFILE" "In KA350i Management System tool, in Controls Tab: - Set 'Enable hardware mapping' - Use Axis calibration to calibrate the several gate positions X -> Throttle1 Y -> Throttle2 Rz -> Condition lever (Invert Axis)" The X,Y, Rz axis refer to my TM Airbus throttle set, but maybe the notes help you. The first line is the most important. P.S.1 "DELETE ANY CALIBRATION IN KA350 PROFILE" means: Removing them physically from the FSUIPC.ini file P.S.2 This is (part) of my FSUIPC KA350 profile [Axes.KA350] RangeRepeatRate=10 0=3X,256,F,66388,0,0,0 -{ TO SIM: AXIS_RIGHT_BRAKE_SET }- 1=3Y,256,F,66387,0,0,0 -{ TO SIM: AXIS_LEFT_BRAKE_SET }- 2=3Z,256,F,65764,0,0,0 -{ TO SIM: AXIS_RUDDER_SET }- 3=4Z,256,F,65821,0,0,0 -{ TO SIM: AXIS_THROTTLE2_SET }- 4=4R,256,F,65820,0,0,0 -{ TO SIM: AXIS_THROTTLE1_SET }- 5=5X,256,F,65763,0,0,0 -{ TO SIM: AXIS_AILERONS_SET }- 6=5Y,256,F,65762,0,0,0 -{ TO SIM: AXIS_ELEVATOR_SET }-
  6. For what it's worth... I'm using Streamdeck in combination with EZDok to switch my self made VC-views. (Forward, Forward-Left, Left, AP, FMC, etc ,etc) The 15-key Steamdesk gives me just enough buttons (but you can add/use more templates) Recentely I bought the X-Touch mini and use that one for the AP rotary switches, push/pull etc in my FSLabs A32x. (requires AAO)
  7. Oki, I found them (sort of...) function VC_GSLD_FCU_ALT_dec () ipc.control(FSL, 71262) AB_ALT_val = AB_ALT_val - AB_ALT_STEP AB_DspALT(AB_ALT_val) DspShow ("ALT", "dec") _sleep(50) end They are available in the LINDA actions.lua file for the A32x ...\linda\aircrafts\FSLabs A3xx
  8. That figures. I will ask a question on their forum and/or try a few new ones myself. The MCP ones seem all in a specific range
  9. Hi, Thanks for the files, specifically for the AOO.xml file. I would like to add a few more variables for LSLabs A3xx but I can find any reference/SDK for which offset/value to use. <Script> <group>FSLabs</group> <label>A32X_ALT_DEC</label> <script>71262 (&gt;K:ROTOR_BRAKE)</script> </Script> Where does the value 71262 come from? It must be specific to FSLabs but I can't find it anyware. Is there a list of offsets/values somewhere available. Egbert
  10. If you want to have some fun tonight point your aircraft to EHAM-Schiphol and have a challenging landing. Storm Eunice is on its way with expected wind force 9-11 P.S. With tonight, I mean CET EHAM 181425Z 23045G62KT 9999 BKN034 10/03 Q0986 NOSIG
  11. I'm hearing for the first time about x-touch mini and searched for it on Amazon. It looks like a nice addition to my StreamDeck. Question: Can it be fully programmed (like StreamDeck) using FSUIPC/LINDA etc? I guess/hope the rotary knobs can be used for AP functions etc
  12. As we speak I'm climbing to FL370.. pfffff Thank you both for the hints, I've made a note of it!
  13. Hi, Is there a way to hurry up the GSX boarding process already in progress. I'm using FSLabs AOC boarding process and pressed the 'boarding' LSK. That was about 40min ago and still the pax are boarding, at least 30% to go. I noticed the 'Instant' LSK, but that isn't functioning. I'm watching paint drying, I would like to depart 😉 Is there a way to hurry up the pax? Egbert P.S. I'm glad I didn't chose the 747 or 777 🙂
  14. And that's exactly what I (and I guess others do too) when using VS mode to descend. Initially VS -2500 and below FL100 about VS -2000/1500.
  15. Affirmative. I'm using VS mode as I do also with other aircraft, regardless if VNAV functions correctly or not. I like to control the descent myself. During descent at 1.500+ ft/min, speed protection (i.e. stall) is not really an issue.
