    CDU II - P3D v4

    Hi SKEWR It would appear that you are only missing a basic installation step. I need to remind myself of the process and I will have a look as soon as I am able, I am unwell right now. Meanwhile you might want to go through the installation manual again step by step. I seem to recall that one step in particular populates the supported aircraft list. Rgds - Roger

    CDU II - P3D v4

    Try unplugging the USB connection and then reconnecting. Then rescan for the device. I have to do this frequently. Roger

    CDU II - P3D v4

    I have migrated from FSX to P3DV4 in order to exploit the 64bit capability, to get away from Virtual Memory Space problems and to be on a supported platform. As we all know there is an ongoing migration of FSX add-ons to P3DV4 and that is the temporary downside no more so than with VR Insight hardware. I have the VRi Boeing MCP and CDU II panels and PMDG 737NGX and 747 V3 (QotS) running P3Dv4 on Windows 10 so I can only report on those but it is worth a moment on LINDA. LINDA will interface with many specific aircraft through the use of bespoke 'Modules' supplied by the LINDA Team in order to enable the VRi MCP Panel and many other switch functions. I use this means very successfully for PMDG 737X, 747 QotS and most other aircraft including for example default GA aircraft. It is an excellent tool and comes with guidance and a forum in AVSim. CDU II. To date and with some guidance from the contributors on this post, so far I have only been able to set up and use this item with the PMDG 737NGX on P3DV4. Yves tells us below that he uses it successfully with PMDG 737, 777 and IFLY 737 and 777. I cannot as yet use it with the PMDG 747 despite much research and a number of attempts. Despite this migratory limitation I am pleased that LINDA drives the MCP Panel and I can live with the restricted use of the CDU II in the hope that in time it too will have wider applications. Meanwhile, for me, P3DV4 has been a big investment but has greatly improved my Sim experience. If I am stating some obvious things here then my apologies but for those trying to make informed decisions I hope it helps. Rgds - Roger

    CDU II - P3D v4

    Hi Yves Thank you for your response. Does this mean that you have now got the PMDG 747 QotS working? BTW - apologies for confusing your name on my previous post! Roger

    CDU II - P3D v4

    Thanks to all for the input, the light has come on and I now have VRI CDU II working with P3Dv4 and PMDG 737. Samuel - I have the PMDG 747 QoS but I have yet to try CDU II. I will give it a go shortly and let you know. InbarG - I assume you have followed the installation process in the VR Insight guide. Assuming that you have it appears that your P3D Root Directory address has a problem. Looking at your screen shot are you absolutely sure the address is correct? i.e. is your sim installation actually the 'E' drive, is 'P3D V4' the root directory for your installation or is it perhaps 'Lockheed Martin'? I'm sure you have checked and checked again but I have just successfully installed as you can see above. Let me know if you get any luck otherwise come back to me and I'll try to assist further.

    CDU II - P3D v4

    Hi InbarG at al I have owned and successfully used the VRI CDU II for some time under FSX. I now have, like you, P3D V4 and it appears (unless someone can tell me differently), that VR Insight have not updated their driver software and configuration tools to work with P3D V4. I have tried to find out intentions and plans to do this but I unfortunately am getting nowhere. If anyone has further information it would be gratefully received. Many thanks - Roger

    LINDA Auto start in P3D V4

    Hi Andrew I confirm I am using the correct version of LINDA for P3Dv4 and it is doing just what it says on the tin! I have now ticked the relevant Start GUI checkbox and it now starts when I initiate P3D. Your point re icon displays is noted. Thanks once again. Rgds - Roger

    LINDA Auto start in P3D V4

    I use LINDA in FSX and the Main LINDA programme auto-starts when I boot FSX. I now have P3Dv4 and the LINDA configuration is similar to FSX albeit with P3Dv4 and FSUIPC5 compatible files. I cannot get LINDA to autostart with P3Dv4, I have to do it manually. Is there a specific setting or configuration I should be using? Also, one minor point. You recently fixed the FSX version of LINDA to fully show the various hardware icons at the bottom of the LINDA Settings page. However, the P3D version shows only the top half of the icons. Not a major issue I know but I thought you would want to know. LINDA has made a huge difference to my sim experience so a big thank you to you and Guenseli (spelling??) for developing and supporting it so well. Rgds - Roger

    P3D v4 and PMDG 747 V3

    Thanks Scotflieger! I think I have got half the story but you guidance is clear. Meanwhile I will install LINDA PMDG QoS V1.1 Modules and see how I get on. As always thank you for a prompt response Roger

    P3D v4 and PMDG 747 V3

    Guidance please. I have read the various forums on this subject and if I understand correctly there is currently a bug in the PMDG 747 V3 which prevents full LINDA functionality with the VR Insight MCP II panel. PMDG are working on this and it is expected to be corrected in the next Release. If I am wrong here happy to be corrected! Meanwhile, can you please advise which 747 LINDA Modules I can use to at least benefit from some functionality whilst the problem is being addressed. Many thanks - Roger

    P3D V4 - Saitek Switch Panel Not Functioning

    Dear Scotfleiger. Once again thank you for your help. Just to confirm I do have the relevant LINDA and FSUIPC downloads. Other than that it is now all functioning correctly! Basic is good - now for the add-ons :-) Rgds - Roger
  12. Help Please Scotfleiger! With your previous assistance I have installed LINDA on FSX and this gave full LINDA control and functionality of my Saitek Yoke, VRI MCP Panel and Saitek Switch Panel. I have now decided to install and develop P3D V4 for what I believe are all the all the right reasons. P3D sits in a separate directory structure from that of FSX to ensure no cross functioning between the two. I have downloaded and installed FSUIPC and LINDA for P3D v4 and followed the same principles as per the FSX installation. With only default aircraft at this time, the Yoke and the MCP Panel function perfectly under LINDA. However, try as I may, I cannot get the Switch Panel to work at all despite the fact that it is recognised by the LINDA Configuration check list. I have looked in the LINDA config-hid-saitek.lua file and all the switch panel assignments are there. I have downloaded the P3D V4 Saitek Drivers but this makes no difference. I just cannot get them to reflect in the Switch Panel. Be grateful for some guidance please! Thanks - Roger

    MJS Q400 Partially Working

    All noted thanks. Prompt reply is again much appreciated! Even 2/3 of the MCP Panel working improves use of this superb sim model. Rgds - Roger

    MJS Q400 Partially Working

    Hi Scotfleiger Thanks for the prompt reply. All understood! I am assuming the same applies to the Saitek Switch Panel? Rgds - Roger

    MJS Q400 Partially Working

    Any advice welcome please! After some teething problems (and some help) I have successfully installed LINDA and it is working fine with the default FSX and most of my pay ware aircraft. I have just installed the files for the MJS Q400 as per other pay ware items but it only partially works. I am on Windows 10 64bit FSX with MCP 2 and Saitek Switch Panel and Yoke. Linda recognises MJS Dash 800 and I have three greens on the Configuration Checklist. Problem is: 1. MCP 2 - EFIS works, MCP AP Works, Comm/Nav Radio reflects aircraft settings made on the aircraft radio but I am unable to send radio settings from MCP 2 to the aircraft. 2. LINDA Joysticks setting page responds to all the switch movements made via the panel selections but, as per the MCP radio, will not transmit to the aircraft. Any ideas or thoughts would be welcome Thanks - Roger
