    Panel Interfacing

    Hello Mitch, I have managed to identify the AP, NAV & COM controls by logging and comparing to the FSUIPC decimal offset data list; what is confusing is that FSUIPC appear to be using hex & decimal but I think I should use decimal! My problem now is tracing the signals for MFD & EICAS controls. Glynn suggested LVARS, but I am unsure how to do this, how to log it and where; perhaps you could advise? If I could find these signals I could then advance a bit further. I would be interested to see the Lua scripts you mentioned but I can't see where you posted them; I checked the link but they do not appear to be there. I did check the links Glynn posted and I had already visited them and downloaded info, which I have read again. Do you know why it is not possible to copy & paste when posting on this site. Thanks Peter. Edit: I may now have the answer for checking LVARS after further investigation so I will see how far I get.

    I will peruse these sites to see if it helps but I am rapidly becoming disillusioned. Many thanks.

    Thanks Glynn, the "Mouse Macro" does work for some switches but only a few, mostly the ones that can be input through FS9. I am not sure what is meant by "XML" gauges as I am quite new to this; how would I detect the difference between gauges in XML or C/C+, could you explain? I thought the C/C+ was the script such as Lua or Arduino! I have read and re-read the FSUIPC documents along with several others, but with my age, the more I read the less I absorb. The "Mouse Macro" routine would be ideal if it detected all the mouse actions and this is what I need. Would this logging procedure enable me to see the inputs. Thanks Peter

    Thanks Mitch, the interface card does not seem to be the problem but how it can be interfaced to FS9, if it can. This is what I am not sure of as in my post. I have tried the "Mouse Macro" routine in FSUIPC but this does not work and although I am registered and can sign in, Simflight are not sending me an email to validate, therefore I am unable to ask the question there. I have been studying this for weeks and posted on several forums without success and all I need is a definitive answer to my query Peter.
  5. I am intending to build a basic panel for all rotary encoders, selector switches and buttons found on the AP, EFIS & MFD displays. It will be an input only panel without LCD displays or signal lights as the cockpit display is adequate. Before I spend time and money on this project I need to know if it is possible to interface the controls and if so how, or is this only possible in FSX. I have perused several sites but I am still unclear if this can be achieved. I had thought of using a Bodnar, PoKeys or some other interface which is possibly easier than using an Arduino. I have FSX, but I have all UK sceneries, airports and other addons for FS9 so would prefer to stay with FS9 at the moment. Could someone advise is this is possible with the stock FS9 aircraft, freeware or payware, if so any suggestions.

    Thanks, have now posted in this forum.

    Panel Interfacing

    I would like some advice if possible, regarding FS9. I am intending to build a basic panel for all rotary encoders, selector switches and other switches such as the AP & EFIS controls, not elaborate, but just to make it easier than having to use the mouse. At the moment I will not be outputting to LCD's or LED's as the panel display will be adequate. I Have a Project AI A320 model with a panel by Ken Mitchell; I notice the same panel appears on the A321 in FSX. The encoders and switches are only operable by the mouse, with no keyboard action. If this is not possible with freeware panels, then I would be prepared to purchase a payware model, possibly IFLY 737, if necessary providing this is achievable. Before I spend time and money on this project I need to know if it is possible to interface the controls and if so how, or is this only possible, or not in FSX. I have perused several sites but I am still unclear if this can be achieved. I had thought of using a Bodnar BU0836, PoKeys or some other interface, which appears to be easier than using an Arduino. I have FSX, but I have all sceneries, airports and other information for FS9, so would prefer to stay with FS9 at the moment. Thanks Peter

  9. Can anyone offer advice for this project? I am interested in purchasing the FS2004 IFLY 737, but as I intend to make a panel with all rotary encoders, switches and buttons, I need to know if this can be interfaced to FS2004. The controls would be nav, comms, selector switches for switching between screens, AP controls etc. If so how would this be done, i.e. Arduino or Bodnar Unit through FSUIPC or some other method. I have contacted the IFLY company but they are unable to assist and I can't even post on the FSUIPC site. Thanks Peter.
