  1. Their landings are solid but their take offs mess up and lose cargo.
  2. I didn't watch or read anything. How the heck did she end up in the water in the first place?
  3. I agree with many, the graphics are not up to 2021 standard.
  4. So I finally spent some time (and $ (FSUIPC)) on my OP to fix the issues with the PMDG DC-6. The answer is yes, FSUIPC and LINDA seems to fix the DC-6 shortcomings, these are my solutions in hopes of helping others: Can’t throttle increase/decrease using game controller buttons - Paid version of FSUIPC allows mapping of default throttle keys to game controller buttons. Can’t 'Propeller High'/'Propeller Low' using keyboard keys - FSUIPC allows prop pitch lever to be set to max/min values with Axis Propeller Set, Parameter:+/-17500 using default keys. Can’t mixture control using default FSX keys - Paid version of FSUIPC allows mapping of default keys with a custom Lua script. Can’t Shift+E then # door activation default FSX keys - Paid version of FSUIPC allows mapping of default keys with a custom Lua script. Can’t control lights with default FSX keys - Paid version of FSUIPC allows mapping of default keys with a custom Lua script. Batt Sw doesn’t move with default FSX keys - Paid version of FSUIPC allows mapping of default keys with a custom Lua script. C+D leaves lights on, window open - Paid version of FSUIPC allows scripting to set as needed of default keys with a custom Lua script. BONUS: Carb Air Levers – using LINDA with Module: PMDG DC-6, Guenter Steiner, ver 1.0, Sept 2017, easily allows lever mapping to gamepad buttons. Below is most of my crude and sloppy Lua code to help those that may want to use or learn from it: ========= Controlling Lights below here ========= function DC6_All_on () ipc.control(66587, 6703) --wheel well light ipc.control(66587, 6701) ipc.control(66587, 6704) if ipc.readLvar("dc6_121_obj") == 1 then --landing ipc.control(66587, 12101) end if ipc.readLvar("dc6_122_obj") == 1 then --extend for landing lights ipc.control(66587, 12201) --extend or down direction elseif ipc.readLvar("dc6_122_obj") == 2 then --2 is sw in up most position(retract) ipc.control(66587, 12201) ipc.sleep(500) ipc.control(66587, 12201) --ipc.sleep(500) --ipc.control(66587, 12202)--retract or up direction end if ipc.readLvar("dc6_041_obj") == 0 then --beacon ipc.control(66587, 4101) end if ipc.readLvar("dc6_040_obj") == 1 then --position ipc.control(66587, 4002) elseif ipc.readLvar("dc6_040_obj") == 0 then ipc.control(66587, 4002) ipc.sleep(1000) ipc.control(66587, 4002) end --red NOT on --ipc.writeLvar("dc6_708_obj", 1) --ipc.writeLvar("dc6_043_obj", 1) --ipc.writeLvar("dc6_699_obj", 1) --ipc.writeLvar("dc6_048_obj", 1) --ipc.writeLvar("dc6_058_obj", 1) --white ipc.writeLvar("dc6_050_obj", 1) ipc.writeLvar("dc6_049_obj", 1) ipc.writeLvar("dc6_174_obj", 1) ipc.lineDisplay("All Lights ON") ipc.sleep(2000) ipc.lineDisplay("") --ipc.sleep(5000) --ipc.control(66587, 12202) --landing light retracts back to off(up) DONT, turns of nacelle lighting end function DC6_All_off () if ipc.readLvar("dc6_122_obj") == 1 then --retracts ipc.control(66587, 12202) elseif ipc.readLvar("dc6_122_obj") == 0 then ipc.control(66587, 12202) ipc.sleep(500) ipc.control(66587, 12202) --ipc.sleep(500) --ipc.control(66587, 12201) end if ipc.readLvar("dc6_041_obj") == 1 then --beacon ipc.control(66587, 4101) end if ipc.readLvar("dc6_040_obj") == 2 then --position ipc.control(66587, 4001) elseif ipc.readLvar("dc6_040_obj") == 0 then ipc.control(66587, 4002) end --red interior --ipc.writeLvar("dc6_708_obj", 0) --ipc.writeLvar("dc6_043_obj", 0) --ipc.writeLvar("dc6_699_obj", 0) --ipc.writeLvar("dc6_048_obj", 0) --ipc.writeLvar("dc6_058_obj", 0) --white ipc.writeLvar("dc6_050_obj", 0) ipc.writeLvar("dc6_049_obj", 0) ipc.writeLvar("dc6_174_obj", 0) ipc.lineDisplay("All Lights OFF") ipc.sleep(2000) ipc.lineDisplay("") ipc.sleep(2000) if ipc.readLvar("dc6_121_obj") == 0 then --landing off after delay so see cool sweep motion ipc.control(66587, 12101) ipc.control(66587, 6703) --wheel well light ipc.control(66587, 6701) ipc.control(66587, 6704) end ipc.control(66587, 12201) --move retract sw back down to off from retract position end function DC6LightsAll () if ipc.readLvar("dc6_050_obj") == 0 then DC6_All_on () else DC6_All_off () end end DC6LightsAll () return ======== Door Control below here ======== --Calling this Lua with Shift+E in Key Presses --fwd below function DC6_ExitFwd_open () ipc.writeLvar("dc6_446_obj", 1) ipc.display("Front Door OPEN") ipc.sleep(4000) if ipc.readLvar("dc6_446_obj") == 1 then ipc.exit() end end function DC6_ExitFwd_close () ipc.writeLvar("dc6_446_obj", 0) ipc.display("Front Door CLOSED") ipc.sleep(4000) if ipc.readLvar("dc6_446_obj") == 0 then ipc.exit() end end function DC6_ExitFwd_toggle () if ipc.readLvar("dc6_446_obj") == 0 then DC6_ExitFwd_open () else DC6_ExitFwd_close () end --ipc.exit () end --aft below function DC6_ExitAft_open () ipc.writeLvar("dc6_451_obj", 1) ipc.display("Rear Door OPEN") ipc.sleep(4000) if ipc.readLvar("dc6_451_obj") == 1 then ipc.exit() end end function DC6_ExitAft_close () ipc.writeLvar("dc6_451_obj", 0) ipc.display("Rear Door CLOSED") ipc.sleep(4000) if ipc.readLvar("dc6_451_obj") == 0 then ipc.exit() end end function DC6_ExitAft_toggle () if ipc.readLvar("dc6_451_obj") == 0 then DC6_ExitAft_open () else DC6_ExitAft_close () end --ipc.exit () end --cargo below function DC6_CargoHold_open () ipc.writeLvar("dc6_448_obj", 1) ipc.display("Cargo Hatches OPEN") ipc.sleep(4000) if ipc.readLvar("dc6_448_obj") == 1 then ipc.exit() end end function DC6_CargoHold_close () ipc.writeLvar("dc6_448_obj", 0) ipc.display("Cargo Hatches CLOSED") ipc.sleep(4000) if ipc.readLvar("dc6_448_obj") == 0 then ipc.exit() end end function DC6_CargoHold_toggle () if ipc.readLvar("dc6_448_obj") == 0 then DC6_CargoHold_open () else DC6_CargoHold_close () end end -- note: 153078 *** EVENT: Cntrl= 66587 (0x0001041b), Param= 44901 (0x0000af65) ROTOR_BRAKE function PilotWindow () ipc.control(66587, 44901) ipc.display("Pilot Window Toggle") ipc.sleep(3000) ipc.exit() end event.key(49, 8, "DC6_ExitFwd_toggle") event.key(50, 8, "DC6_ExitAft_toggle") event.key(51, 8, "DC6_CargoHold_toggle") event.key(52, 8, "PilotWindow") ========= Mixture Lever controls below here ========= ipc.control(66587, 40002) --richen mixtures ipc.control(66587, 40102) ipc.control(66587, 40202) ipc.control(66587, 40302) ipc.control(66587, 40001) --lean out mixtures ipc.control(66587, 40101) ipc.control(66587, 40201) ipc.control(66587, 40301)
  5. For info sake to others....after much, much research and suggestions from John Dowson, this is a working answer: function DC6_ExitFwd_open () ipc.writeLvar("dc6_446_obj", 1) ipc.display("Front door OPEN") ipc.sleep(4000) end function DC6_ExitFwd_close () ipc.writeLvar("dc6_446_obj", 0) ipc.display("Front door CLOSED") ipc.sleep(4000) end function DC6_ExitFwd_toggle () if ipc.readLvar("dc6_446_obj") == 0 then DC6_ExitFwd_open () else DC6_ExitFwd_close () end end
  6. I'm as useful at coding as an eye dropper at a forest fire. I'm trying to perform a simple toggle: Toggle open/close the front door Note:the default FSX door toggle key command map does not work in this plane and I do not want to use a mouse for this Is anyone good at Lua coding FSUIPC that can help please? The LINDA code below works with a button within LINDA but I want to map a keyboard press within FSUIPC. function DC6_ExitFwd_open () ipc.writeLvar("dc6_446_obj", 1) DspShow ("Frnt", "open") end function DC6_ExitFwd_close () ipc.writeLvar("dc6_446_obj", 0) DspShow ("Frnt", "clse") end function DC6_ExitFwd_toggle () if _tl("dc6_446_obj", 0) then DC6_ExitFwd_open () else DC6_ExitFwd_close () end end
  7. SOLVED: I missed the fact you MUST have the PAID version of FSUIPC.
  8. I've pretty much settled on keeping my current hardware (and games) until 2024....and hoping nothing breaks. In today's current computer landscape, electronic instant gratification is too expensive and stressful.
  9. Ask a local friend or relative to download it for you and put it on a thumb drive?
  10. At work right now but I believe I upgraded to the latest of each for FSX. Yes, the orange box is glowing and "Things are OK" in green. It sure seems like it all should be working. Perhaps an addon conflict? I'll email info as requested later this evening. Thank you for your help.
  11. LINDA is synced to FSX, goes black when saving any On press. No matter what I try, no action occurs inside FSX. Below is button 5 and 6 of my Xbox360 gampad trying to activate basic things. This is PMDG DC-6 btw. It all seems pretty easy so I must be missing something stupid to get this to work?
  12. Yup. Flying via VOR/NDB is much more challenging and satisfying. Add to that using an older flight engineer biased plane like Concorde X or A2A Captain of the Ship B377 and the fun can't be beat. Hint: I slow the sim down as needed cause the work load gets to crazy at times.
  13. I use Ideal Flight to inject many planes at airports; works a treat.
