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!!!
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.
