  1. Did you have to use LINDA or any other software to get this up and running? Would you consider giving a fairly detailed step by step list of instructions as to how you did this? It would be GREATLY appreciated.
  2. This is the response I got from Chris on 10/04/2020 in response to my request as to when he would have drivers for MSFS2020. Hello, d Thank you for inquiry. The Boeing MCP can be used with FSUIPC7 for FS2020. The CDU is not support now. Regards, Chris Han VRinsight Customer SupportI I've never understood Chris. He makes/sells beautiful, extremely well made, expensive equipment but absolutely no support whatsoever.
  3. I am so jealous. I downloaded and installed the sim as soon as it hit midnight release day on the US east coast. As of today (8/28) having done very little else other than catching a few catnaps, i have only been able to get a plane in the air twice, once for about a half hour, once for about 1.5 hours. Both those flights had problems, but I could figure out and work through some of those. What I have had no success with is solving why the program usually crashes either before I can even get it set up and hit the "Fly Now" button., or at the end of the runway when I test the controls, and am about ready to takeoff. I've done everything that the support team listed to do on the canned response sheet they sent me after I filed a ticket, and then they promptly listed my issue as solved -- I wish! Well, everything except finally uninstalling and doing a clean boot reinstall. Was saving that 'cause I was under the impression that there was going to be the first update/patch released today. Well not waiting another week. My system almost very similar to yours except I have the I7 7700, but then I have a 1 TB SSD running on the PCIE bus, and a 2070 RTX Super graphic card. Did a clean install of Windows when I changed out my drive c:/ about a month ago in prep for this. Haven't installed much of anything else other than Microsoft 365 since then because I wanted to install FS on a pretty clean system. Oh yes, also installed the game day drivers from nVidia. Like I said, totally jealous!!!
  4. Checked other controllers under FSX, and Button A is not assigned under any other controller either. Neither is Button B. HC = Honeycomb Yoke Button A = HC8 Action A = Panel Window 4 Action Z = Selection increase Button B = HC7 Action B = Panel Window 3 Action Y = Selection decrease To Gerard and others: Note that I can get the button, in this case HC 7 & 8 to perform the action I want them to perform, it's that they are also simultaneously performing an action I don't want, and did not program them to perform.
  5. What are all the possible places that could be outputting a switch/button command. I am trying to program a button on the yoke. Call it button A. I want button A to execute command A. So I push button A and action A is implemented. HOWEVER, not only is Action A implemented, but so is Action Z. So I look in all the places I know of in which you can set up a button action. They are: 1 FSX Program, Settings, Controls 2 FSUIPC 3 Honeycomb Yokeinput 4 LINDA FSX Settings, Controls lists Button A in the Joystick Box for Action A. Its Joystick Box for Action Z is empty. Items 2, 3, and 4 show NO sign of Button A listed. Comments / Suggestions?
  6. I haven't seen any comments about whether or not our peripherals such as yokes, throttle quadrants, cdu's, MCPs (such as VRInsight stuff), etc., will work with MS FS2020. Any comments.
  7. Ekim - The problem is not with your English, it's with my understanding. Question: I've got the MCP up and running, but I'm having trouble with the CDU. One issue I have is I cannot get the onscreen CDU to show up on the CDU II's screen. I've followed the instructions given in the CDU II documentation, but the VriSim window with all the arrows that is supposed to size and move the aircraft's screen over onto the CDU II's screen has no affect on it whatsoever. Neither can I just resize the screen with the mouse and then drag it over to the CDU II's screen. The mouse shows up on the small screen, but not the actual visual. Did you have any problems of this nature? Thanks
  8. SUCCESS! Deleted the module folder, replaced it with my backup, and started over. Much cleaner and simpler this time as, after several days, some things just made more sense. The MCP is up and running. Now for the hard part, the CDU.
  9. I also get the same message in the LINDA Control software LINDA version module PMDG 737 NGX version 4.12 FSX - SE FSUIPC 4.974 REGISTERED COPY Files/Folders in Modules Folder: linda Linda 3.09 Standard v4 linda-cfg Your Flt Sim Folder FSUIPC4 install.log FSUIPC4.DLL FSUIPC4.ini FSUIPC4.JoyScan.csv FSUIPC4.key FSUIPC4.log FSUIPC4_prev.log uipchist.bin This is all very new to me. I'm trying to simultaneously read manuals on LINDA (two manuals), FSUIPC, and attempt to understand LUA's, GSX, LINDA, VRinsight's MCP Combo 2 and CDU II, and what is most intriguing Peter Dowson's comment on a simflight forum: "You're a bit behing the times. If your 737NGX is up to date, then all the controls you need are already available without macros. Just check the Event list at the end of the .h document installed in your NGX SDK folder. You can assign them by number in any recent version of FSUIPC" which just might be the answer to how to integrate my CDU II into FSX-SE.
  10. Thanks Ekim. I will be honest and say that I understand almost nothing that you have said. This is all new to me. So having said that, I decided to put the CDU aside at the moment, and focus on trying to get the MCP Combo up and running with LINDA. So far no success but I'm working my way through the LINDA manuals. One concern I have though is this statement that you make: Now I am very definitely under the impression from what ScotFlieger has repeatedly said that you absolutely could not use LINDA and the Vrisim software. That they were mutually exclusive and that you could only have one or the other installed on your computer. So I was under the impression that going the mousemacro route somehow involved only using LINDA and FSUIPC. Is this not the case? Put another way, it seems to me that my most basic decision has to be do I try to run both the MCP Combo and the CDU using Vrisim for both, or LINDA and FSUIPC for both. That there is no other choice. Comments? PS: I'm running FSX-SE, have a registered version of FSUIPC, PMDG's 737 NGX, and newly acquired VRinsight MCP Combo 2 and CDU II. I've only gotten just into the first tutorial on the 737 so feeling like I've bitten off more than I can chew at the moment.
  11. Ekim, I'm new to all this. Could you send me an example of what you are talking about? It would be appreciated.
  12. I would very much like to have both the Boeing MCP and the Boeing CDU II. However it appears this is not possible at the moment. Morever there are no plans to modify LINDA to be able to do so. See this thread: https://www.avsim.com/forums/topic/539229-linda-for-vrinsight-cdu-ii-fcu-mcp-combo-ii/?tab=comments#comment-3874921 A dialog with the Linda developer yielded this: "Adding bespoke support of the CDUII would involve not insignificant changes to the LINDA GUI similar to the MCP pages. Access to the physical hardware would be required for at least 6 months and retention would allow continued support. Details of the interface requirements from VRInsight would be essential to successful completion. I won't quote a cost element as all LINDA support relies on my free time which has other priorities and calls on it (ie. family and business). Donations are accepted based on the value users place on our support contribution." So I'm wondering if there would be any interest in attempting to crowd fund the development. What we would need to do initially is, for example, set up a Go Fund Me account, probably best just to have ScotFlieger set it up in his name so he could draw on it. Initially we'd want to raise about 500 Euros which would allow ScotFlieger to purchase, and get shipped, a CDU II that he could use for the development, and then keep for ongoing support. Any Interest? The more people involved the less expensive it will be on each individual.
  13. Has ANYONE successfully installed both the Boeing MCP Combo panel, and the Boeing CDU II from VRinsight? That is both functioning in FSX-SE with the PMDG 737 NGX. I asked because I would dearly love to have both, but in reading threads in this forum I'm under the impression that the software from VRinsight does not work well, so LINDA needs to be installed for the MCP, but LINDA does not work for the CDU, and that LINDA and the VRinsight software are mutually incompatible. Therefore it appears that one can only have one or the other, but not both. Is this true? Again, has nobody succeeded in having both units, and them working as they should? PLEASE ADVISE!!!
  14. So, let me ask the question more directly. If, somehow someone(s) were to: Provide you with a VRinsight CDUII - yours to keep $XX Would you: Even be interested in developing LINDA for the CDUII And what would $XX need to be. Figure it doesn't hurt to ask Thanks
  15. zhensanmao - Are you saying that you were able to get the VRInsight Boeing CDU to work with Linda? I'm very much wanting to purchase the Boeing MCP & CDU II but have been confuse as to whether anyone has gotten the CDU to work. ScotFlieger - "Thank you for the donation. It gets expensive self-funding all the new aircraft releases people want." I have no idea what it would take in time/cost to enable LINDA to support the CDU II, nor how many people are trying to, or wanting to, use a CDU II. However, I'm wondering if there would be a snowballs chance in hell of trying to crowd source such a project?
