    VRInsight FCU Combo and LINDA

    Scott: I appreciate your effort here configuring or trying to replicate the issue, but you guys are the developers of LINDA, not me, and you are definitely the right people to help to understand the debug part of LINDA and FSUIPC for troubleshooting. Saying "oh this doesn't happen to me" doesn't mean that it's not happening, and doesn't mean the issue it's fixed. If this issue is not happening in your particular installation, that is perfectly fine. Then help me out to set the right debug settings or anything else that could lead us to check and validate which commands are failing to initialize For sure there should be an indicator that leads to "an issue" that at least could be a hint in the logs of LINDA or FSUIPC that could lead us to a problem with one particular component, or at least finding one single error line that could help to understand what happened in the background.

    I will send my full modules folder. I've checked the device manager with the set devmgr_show_nonpresent_devices=1 And the "Show hidden devices" in devmgmt.msc (Device Manager) but the only device under COM ports is the COM17 at the moment which is the device, and it's transparent because it's unplugged. I'm thinking about seriously returning the device to Aerosoft. The product has no support whatsoever, no updates since 2 (almost 3) years, and no plans to add for compatibility with the Airbus Professional which is the current one. It looks like the guys are making money selling old stuff and leaving their customers stranded. I really loved the device, but the default software is useless. Seems to not work with Linda, which renders the device a super expensive paperweight.

    Update: there is a bug in LINDA. Choosing the COM upper COM19, there is no COM20, and all the remaining options are offset by 1 (so 23 says that COM22 is missing in FSUIPC.INI, you can validate saving the settings.

    A simple question. When I load the MCP panel (Airbus) without LINDA, using SerialFP2. If I press the Lights button, the device resets. I suspect there is a malfunction, I'm going to return it as I never managed to get it working with Linda and starting thinking the device is not working as expected, the reason why LINDA maybe can't handle it. However, it works with the default software. Sometimes I have to open the software twice to get it working, a sign that could be something wrong here.

    Same behavior. Only addon that I had now installed beside scenery is GSX. I've just sent the logs via email

    I already installed from media the repair option that installed all the Prepar3D files again. Also disabled all additional mods. It's still having the same behaviour Let me try the Weather parameter in the ini file and see what happens

    Scot: I've been doing some testings and I could not find any kind of errors in the logs I've been generating lately. The Error 25 operation seems to be attached only when I load the Airbus Professional A319, and not when I load other airplanes like PMDG 737 or F-22 Raptor. In all cases, I don't see any "FSUIPC" stalling, as I understand, Linda relies entirely on FSUIPC, so if FSUIPC was stalled or corrupted or not working we have some of the following behaviours: - The airplane won't load at all, most of the PMDG models depend 100% on FSUIPC. - Linda will not respond to any of the actions mapped to Buttons in standard Joystick (HID) like Button1 I've set AP1 OFF for PMDG, and it is working - Spent last 15 years of my life reading logs, and I could not find still a single error in all the logs, a halt or at least an issue that points to the problem I will send the latest logs in a few minutes, however, I can isolate the issue at the moment to Linda and the FCU management/initialization by part of Linda, or eventually the FSUIPC that handles the VRinisght, as seems to be not having any issues controlling the joystick buttons and the actions I map to them, plus on this the FCU flashes when I start the simulator which means the RST command send in the beginning is taking action. The FCU is working correctly in the port assigned, I've tried two, COM7, and COM3 at the moment. In both of them, If I uninstall LINDA (now 3.0.8b) and I launch the SerialFP2 or the VRiSIM, and I select, for example, PMDG 737 when I load that model, the FCU initialises and works without any issue. Is there something else I can do to help to dig into this issue? Can I enable any other debug log In/OUT commands to understand when it is failing and why it is doing that? The device says SerialFP 2.52, it is possible that something changed during the time and now Linda is handling correctly older versions of the hardware but failing to manage the newer ones?

    I will disable the setting and disable the extra debug. Let me do few more testings with newer LINDA version!

    But the problem is not only with Airbus. It is not working with any aircraft, even with Default or PMDG. Basically the device is not working at all. FSUIPC doesn't looks to be the problem as I can use many airplanes that are using FSUIPC without any issues. I disabled SPAD and any other add on I had in place like AS, Rex Force 3D, even I reinstalled an repaired all the files from P3D and it is having the same behaviour. I'm sending you the latest logs with all debug options activated and just loading default and PMDG, I can't see any errors over there that indicates a problem trying to initialize something.

    Scot: According to the log files, the illegal operation only happens when I load the airbus professional; it doesn't when I load any default airplane. The wxstationlist.bin is in Prepar3d Folder under Weather\ and not located in the Appdata\Roaming\Prepar3d V4\ I deleted by the way, and the behaviour is the same. I'll be glad to reinstall the FSUIPC again, However in the FSUIPC logs there are no indicators or errors at all, especially if I pick the default airplane, the FSUIPC also used by many airplanes works perfectly fine, I did with Spad.Next and able to manage externally any FSUIPC inputs and outputs from different hardware. I don't know exactly how do you reach to the conclusion that is FSUIPC issue and not LINDA, considering that linda is the only component failing in the chain, I'm able to query and send data to FSUIPC. "Looks like corruption in P3D. Just about every Sim Var FSUIPC needs to populate the offsets is failed." How do you reach this conclusion? The Airbus professional is generating that on load, doesn't happen with PMDG or Default F22, so I consider that assuming a "severe corruption" based on no data is kinda quick to solve this issue. I will follow the FSUIPC reinstall and send the wxstationlist.bin I'll be glad to help diagnose this issue and provide all the data but first we need to get into the actual errors, assuming that the last line says Weather AS and nothing happens and then thinking the AS is the issue (which is uninstalled now, the same behaviour) it's a bad approach and doesn't lead us to the actual error which should be at least in the FSUIPC logs if it is unable to initialize one or more components. Let me know if I could enable something that will create debug logs so we can dive deep into the issue. Thanks

    Amazing, let me check and email you the file

    Why is here such a lousy support?

    You are doing a terrific job!

    Hey Scot! Thank you very much, I'll be glad to donate something for all this support you are providing to me. I'm sending the logs to the email to you. Just to clarify: P3Dv4, using Active Sky for P3D v6773. Latest version of Linda 3.0.7 and FSUIPC 5.1.4.0 Something that could be important for you if this is using Simconnect, I'm using other softwares that uses Simconnect with no issues (not open at the moment) like PRO-ATCX, Active Sky, and also used SPAD.Next as well (all of them closed, except for Active sky). Simconnect version says 4.3.0.0. Shall I install other versions for older compatibility for the Simconnect? Since I've installed P3Dv4 I never installed others than the one that came with the P3dV4 so the only version is 4.3 but not other older versions. Could you confirm that Linda requires them to work properly? Could you confirm what specific items will need LINDA to Initialize after I load the airplane or what could eventually fail? This test was done with Aerosoft Airbus A319, and I did the same test with default scenario, like F22 in AFB, loading the "FSX Default". Has the same behavior, that part that looks like initialize in the console in LINDA never happens therefore the hardware is in "standby" for "fly now". By the way, I did all the testings you suggested. Spent a lot of team reading carefully all the previous posts, and Did all the DEBUG test with the hardware, checking the com port and sending the test commands TSTON/OFF LITON/OFF CMDCON etc, all of them worked as expected and the device responded as expected. One strange thing, LINDA seems to be partially working in Prepar3D -> If I map a command to the Joystick Saitek X56 for example Button 1, to Toggle AP1, it works fine so this seems to be isolated with the initialization of the VRi device.

    VRInsight FCU Combo and LINDA

    I'm having the exact same issues, however I don't see any retry connecting to the COM3 of the FCU Airbus Combo. Unfortunately this issue seems to be isolated for LINDA. The COM (serial) are pretty straightforward, they work or they don't. If this is the case where VRiSim works fine connecting and handling the device and LINDA doesn't it has to do about how linda handles the COM devices. I've just got this new Airbus FCU expecting I would be able to use LINDA, but now I'm stuck using the default VRiSIM which doesn't work with Airbus Professional, so more good news. I can provide any logs as you were talking, I had the similar events here: 5156 Ready Flags: Ready-To-Fly=N, In Menu=N, In Dlg=N 5500 VRI MCP2A ("MCP2 Airbus") detected on port com3 6593 Running in "Lockheed Martin® Prepar3D® v4", Version: 4.3.29.25520 (SimConnect: 4.3.0.0) 6593 Initialising SimConnect data requests now 6593 FSUIPC Menu entry added 6609 ...

For me that never happens, and the FCU is stuck as well as Type 1.100 Dream Supplier! Is there any way we could help to solve this issue?
