    LINDA - Blue Screen of Death (BSOD)

    Hi. The program LINDA v3.0.5 causes an error: Unexpected Kernel Mode Trap. The error comes when I want to save a flight, the key is the "Ü". The Ü key is the default assignment for saving flights. So, I start the P3D and press the Ü key. Without further notice the P3D passed with a BlueScreen. It only helps to restart the computer. The error has come since I upgraded to P3D v4.3 and FSUIPC 5.1.3.2 and the error is reproducible. My system Windows 10 64-bit P3D v4.3 FSUIPC 5.1.3.2 LINDA 3.0.5 Currently I have disabled LINDA and I am wondering if I will do without LINDA altogether. Does anyone have similar problems or even a solution?
  2. LINDA 3.0.7 provides compatibility with the new Prepar3D v4 (P3Dv4) 64-bit flight simulator and all existing 32-bit flight simulators (FSX, FSX-SE and P3Dv3.4). It should installed into the Flt Sim's module folder. Each adult Sim requires its own installation. This release requires a registered version FSUIPC5 5.122 or later to work with P3Dv4. FSUIPC4 4.972 or later is required for other 32-bit Flt Sims (FSX, FSX-SE or P3Dv3.4. LINDA WILL NOT FUNCTION WITH OLDER VERSIONS OF FSUIPC. This release provides full support for all existing features including VRi Combo MCP panel operation. Please read all the enclosed release notes for all details on new features. Most of the changes are under the bonnet (US hood) based on user feedback: Fix to Sync To Sim orange highlighting of aircraft selector. Adds Sounds function for use with QW787 and other modules. All issues and problems should be reported on the LINDA Support sub-forum. Known Issues: Hotkeys may not work with P3Dv4 and Win10. Download: LINDA 3.0.7 Formal Release (740) Previous Version: LINDA 3.0.6 Formal Release (739) LINDA 3.0.5 Formal Release (735) LINDA 3.0.4a Formal Release (728) LINDA 2.9.6c

    Maddog 2018

    I made the assumption that the new Leonardo Maddog would use, if not the same code, at least the same variable names as their earlier version. On this basis, I tested out the old module. Obviously it needs the 'ident' entry changing to 'simfolder="Maddogx"', so that the binding will occur. It works, although to what extent I'm not sure yet, because I'm in the middle of testing as I write, but I've got it working on some AP buttons, rotaries, and external lights. I'd be interested in the experience of others.
  4. The Just Flight Cessna 152 offers another exciting aircraft for those who enjoy VFR flying. This module provides functions for most instrument panel operations with the exception of the Direction Indication and navigation instrument knobs. You will need LINDA 3.0.5 or later. To install the module: Download the module to a suitable location and unzip. Open LINDA and select Maintenance. Ensure that the Aircraft box shows -- Aircrafts --. Under Import Aircraft Module, click on Select Source Folder and locate the uncompressed module. Click on Import/Overwrite JF C152 Module. Start Flt Sim and load Just Flight C152. The module can be downloaded from here: Beta Version 0.1 Please report any issues on the LINDA Support sub-forum. Enjoy!
  5. Hi all, I am currently in the process of building a LINDA Module for the new Captain Sim 757 III. I have recorded all LVAR data and have been able to use it for switches and buttons with the VRInsight MCP Combo 2 (Boeing). However, my problem lies with displaying SPD/IAS, HDG, ALT and V/S information on the VRInsight LCD Display and using the various rotary dials. When I try to add code for them, the dials don't respond and nothing appears on the LCD Display. I've been able to display SPD/IAS, HDG and ALT when LINDA is first loaded and the MCP boots up, but that's it. Does anybody have any example script they can give me to start me off? I'm a fast learner! I've been looking at other modules to help get an idea of things, but still need someone to identify and explain certain things. Many thanks for any help - I'm eager to write it all as soon as possible! Pete

    Searching for LUA Developer

    Hello, I made a Cessna Home cockpit and to make it works with A2A C182 & C172 I need to make a LUA Script with A2A LVAR. Because I don't know how to code on LUA, I'm cherching a developper for a LUA mission. You can contact me on MP to discuss the modality and the prices. Waiting for your answer Ludo
  7. So I'm trying to set up 'key commands' in the events tap for my multi panel. I cant figure out the parameters section. so for the Heading knob which I think is 'AP_HDG_VAR' what do I enter in the parameters section for turning the knob clockwise & counter clockwise ? also what is 'AP_HDG_LIM' command ?
  8. Hi folks Does anyone have any ideas on how to set up LINDA with the Carenado SR22 to use a knob on my throttle to toggle the fuel boost pump on and off? It's something I do natively in the real aircraft without looking at the switch so should be able to code a hardware button? Mike
  9. Aerosoft CRJ-700/900 Module v0.6 beta This module provides initial support for the Aerosoft CRJ-700/900. It is released as a BETA version with limited functionality.

  10. Hi all, This LINDA module was designed for the Carenado EMB505 Phenom 300 for FSX . Not all functions are modeled in this version. The G1000 is not completely modeled but the COM and NAV rotaries should work. Also there are no functions for the FMS as I use the FSX plight planner and have used the buttons on the FMS to operate the ATC dialog. It was modeled for use with an external cockpit and as such you may not see all of the visuals happening in the VC (although most will) The switch should still operate the aircraft systems systems though. Although not complete, I hope that it may save you some time with your own project. If you have any problems feel free to post them in the LINDA Support forum, however, I am not a programmer so may not be able to answer all questions. If I can, I will. Download here: Phenom 300 module v1.1 all the best Stinger

  14. Hello First of all, a big thank you for LINDA, great piece of software. I have a question regarding the "on repeat" speed: I have 16-indent rotary encoder that I want to use for setting my heading bug. Using "HDG plus/minus" function will not work for me because to make the full 360°, I would need to turn the encoder 22.5 times. However, "HDG plusfast/plusminus" won't give me the 1° granularity. Therefore, I intend to use "HDG plus/minus" on press and "HDG plusfast/plusminus" on repeat. After the first 1° increment, it nicely goes into "fast-mode". My problem though is that I have to wait way too long to be able to do 1° increments again. It appears that it takes repeating inputs into account that are spaced too much apart. Is there any option I can tweak to shorten the amount of time LINDA looks for a repeat input? Thanks!
  15. Here you can download the LINDA aircraft module for the A2A C172 Trainer Installation notes: Download and unzip it and place the two folders into: */Microsoft Games/Microsoft Flight Simulator X/Modules Say "yes" if he'd like to overwrite anything Your current Combo settings wouldn't be overwritten, but you find in Modules/linda-cfg/aircrafts/A2A_C172 files named *.default. name them to *.lua to use them Note: If you installed the full version of LINDA 2.5.7 you will need to remove the default C172 folder for this module to work. Find folder \modules\linda\aircrafts\c172 and move to new location or delete. Do the same for \modules\linda-cfg\aircrafts\c172. Download: A2A C172 v1.03 See update below. Update 11 Mar 2015: 1.0.1 > 1.0.2 changed ALT inner and outer knob behave as it wasn't correct. Same with VS up/down 1.0.2 > 1.0.3 added missing ident.lua file

    LINDA PRE-FLIGHT PACKAGE MODULE?

    I'm just speculating or just throwing this one out there for the developers and programmers of LINDA to thinker with. For instance I know about the LINDA TRACER feature... But how can I explain this for simple clarification... But here it is? Can there be a new development In which LINDA can take the tracer feature and automatically pre-flight for you and thus prepare for you the LUA files and package for you the module for any aircraft of your choice and have it all ready in one file module. That would be awesome program. Willist it be called the LINDA MODULE EMULATOR?... Something to think about with all these requests for modules? Sorry if this is the wrong forums to post. You could move my post. Thank you for your time.
  17. Here you can download the LINDA aircraft module for the PMDG 777 (module version 1.3a). Version 1.3a adds missing VRi Combo MPC .default files. It is only applies to VRInsight MCP panel users. Installation notes: Download and unzip it and place the two folders into: */Microsoft Games/Microsoft Flight Simulator X/Modules Say "yes" if he'd like to overwrite anything Your current Combo settings wouldn't be overwritten, but you find in Modules/linda-cfg/aircrafts/PMDG 777 files named *.default. name them to *.lua to use them. Download PMDG 777 Module 1.3a 1.0 --> 1.1 ADIRU fix Display sync fix 1.1 to 1.2 Doors added Ground connections improved Added GSX Refueling Feature: calling the GSX Fuel Truck will pop-up FOs CDU with FUEL page opened. 1.2 to 1.3 added Anti Ice Added GSX functions like closing doors preventing some LUA crashes changed EXT PWR logic/added on/off 1.3a Fixes missing VRi MCP .default files. Have a look here for the new GSX Door Service
  18. Here is the first iteration in development of PM/Prosim module. What's done: Display sync with VRi MCP Combo All MCP Dials working (CRS/SPD/HDG/ALT/VS) CRS rotary works for both left and right course (press knob to toggle) Vertical speed indication (not tested, but should work) What's NOT done: NO BUTTONS ACTIONS NO EFIS ROTARIES ACTIONS Instead of that you can use the default FSUIPC assignments for Project Magenta. Go to the FSUIPC Buttons & switches control panel, tap VRi MCP button or turn the knob - it will be detected as joystick button press. Then mark the "Include Project Magenta" checkbox and select th desired action for this button or knob from the drop list. 1. Don't forget, that you should set both "Press" and "Release" actions in this panel for each button (...or else you will need to press each button twice to get action executed). 2. Don't forget, that you should remove any assignments made for VRi MCP dials inside FSUIPC, or LINDA will be unable to catch them. How to use: Assuming you have already installed LINDA and it works properly Download module: LINDA Project Magenta v0.1a (15 aug. 2011) Unzip both folders from Zip into: */FSX/Modules folder Run LINDA Choose "Project Magenta" aircraft from the droplist (switch off the FSX SYNC if it's enabled) Press "Edit" button Select your PM'ed or Prosim'ed aircraft folder from the list Save! (press "Edit") Run FSX and load your aircraft Check LINDA's console - it should say on some line: Module: Project Magenta Started... Now it should work - try to turn VRi MCP knobs and see if PM/Prosim reacts on your input Note: For some reason Prosim doesn't work on my system with FSUIPC offests. So the module was tested and working with time limited Project Magenta modules, but it should work with Prosim too, as they are using the same offsets for data exchange.
  19. I suffered a lot of pain after receiving my very fine Thrustmaster Hotas Warthog - in terms of figuring out how to configure it, how to get FSX to see it even after I had disabled all control surfaces WITHIN FSX, and how to solve difficult problems like separately controlling left versus right engines, achieving proper max and IDLE thrust, and getting the REVERSERS to come on when I lift and then pull back the throttles past their "IDLE" position (and pull them further towards me).So I am beginning this thread as a roundtable for other Warthog drivers to share their experiences and nuances of the control surfaces, and how they interact with FSX and other Flight Sim products.Topic 1 - GETTING the AXES recognized in FSUIPC (after first DISABLING all your controllers within FSX by unticking them on the setup page of FSX) Start FSX Select your typical aircraft (in my case the PMDG 737NGX) From the top menu in FSX, click on OPTIONS, then SETTINGS, then Controls as shown in this picture:You'll see the following image (This picture shows the FSX controls box AFTER I have un-ticked (DE-selected) controllers (Joystick, Throttle, and SAITEK rudders))Plain ENGLISH! Make sure there is NO CHECKMARK in the box next to the words "Enable Controllers" They won't respond now until you set them up in FSUIPC as outlined further on in this topic.From the menu bar across the top of your screen in FSX, click "ADD-ONS" then click FSUIPC (registered version)Tip: There is a MISCELLANEOUS tab in FSUIPC, click on it:I would recommend you check the boxes as I have them (you can take note of what they are before you begin to change them, if you don't like the results it's easy enough to revert them back.After checking the boxes click OK button at bottom of the FSUIPC miscellaneous window to accept your changes. The Control Spike Elimination is particularly important for the Rudder, Elevator and Ailerons.If you use REX for realtime weather, you may want to consider altering the WINDS settings within FSUIPC, but I won't delve into that here as it's a tad off topic.Next, click on the Axis Assignment tab in FSUIPCSplit the throttles on the WARTHOG (pull the silver magnetic switch on the back side of the throttle handle fully left and the two throttle handles will operate independent of each other. Move ONLY the left throttle handle whilst you are in FSUIPC- you see:on the lower left where it says "Type of action required" be sure "Send direct to FSUIPC Calibration" radio button is selected.Then in the drop down box select Throttle 1 and put a checkmark next to it then click OK.After clicking OK FSUIPC will close. Restart it from within FSX and repeat the process with the RIGHT throttle handle. If the JOY# and AXIS# boxes aren't blank, clear them by pressing the CLEAR then the RESCAN buttons in FSUIPC. THis time select Throttle 2 as shown below:Notice the JOY# is the same (JOYSTICK1) but the axis letters are different between LEFT and RIGHT throttle controls!Now that these are selected you can proceed into the calibration tab within FSUIPC and thence to FSUIPC.INI file but more on that in a moment. Note the picture above, the default range for the throttles is -16384 to +16384 That is the rub. If you don't edit these to allow for a dead zone at the bottom end, your thottles will not reach IDLE THRUST properly and you'll experience major pain trying to land at too high a speed!So first go ahead and calibrate them by clicking on the CALIBRATION TABYou see:CRITCALLY IMPORTANT! Put a tick in the checkbox marked "No Reverse Zone" (Why? Because you want the REVERSERS to be controlled by YOU, when you LIFT the throttle handle UP whilst pulling it further back, (after configuring LINDA) your thrusters will work as you want them - NOT come on before you intend them to! Especially important whilst landing and not yet on the runway, yeah? I spent a LOT of time not KNOWING this trick! Hope it helps YOU and if you have a WARTHOG it will!If you don't have a warthog, you'll have to determine some other switches to assign for reversers but that's OFF TOPIC here.Note the ranges above- they are much SMALLER than the default range assigned by FSUIPC. I edited them in the FSUIPC.INI file looks like this: Plain English tip: AFter you first calibrate the controls, then after opening the FSUIPC4.ini file (it is in the MODULES folder of your FSX directory) using NOTEPAD, you will need to MANUALLY change the values (make each of them smaller to create the "DEAD ZONES" i am speaking about. For example, if a control has an existing calibration range of -16384 to +16384 you can select -15500 and +15500 instead then save the file. This will give you some 'headroom' at both the top and bottom range of the given control axis so that things will operate "as expected" - particularly important for THROTTLES and BRAKES. If you fly SAITEK rudders (Combat or regular) you MUST check REVERSE in the configuration window of FSUIPC, because the controls for brakes on Saitek rudder are programmed 'backwards' and when fully depressed your brakes will RELEASE and when fully released they will lock up which is BAD NEWS. You need to enable "REVERSE" operation and then the Saitek brakes will work as you wish. Plus, you also need to create HEADROOM on both the top and bottom ranges of your BRAKES for the same reason... so they fully release and fully engage when you want them to. If you don't create a dead zone, they will sometimes hang up or not move fully up or down, and unexpected results may occur whilst in flight.Worst case you can copy my settings they should work fine for Throttle1 and Throttle 2. You will still get max thust and min thrust, but you'll have headroom (dead zone) at the top and bottom of the throttle throw range so you will achieve full IDLE thrust upon landing and MAX takeoff thrust on takeoff.Many of you have discovered the wonderful interface button assignment tool called LINDA, here are my Linda settings unshifted and shifted (Throttle) and then the Joystick (which I use sparingly, because most of the buttons on the joystick I use to control camera views in EZDOK.Unshifted (2 views to cover all button assingments) Shifted 2 views Joystick 1 view (5 images total)JOYSTICK:What works for me is the LANDING LIGHTS run off ENGL toggle, The Taxi Lights run off FLOW R toggle, ENG OPER L increases all inside dash lights whilst I hold in UP position APU Start switch actually starts the APU (no can of corn, see above programming steps) and when you throw it the opposite way, it swaps from ENGINE GENERATORS to APU GENERATORS (thus allowing you to kill the engines when shutting down and deplaning passengers). Shift the Global Joystick button and lift ENG OPER L switch kills Left engine Lift R switch kills right engine (you must hold the SHIFT button on the joystick down to enable this due to how I programmed - why? Prevent killing engines whilst airborne. Yeah?L/G Warn is Parking Brake toggle. Autopilot engage/disengage does that, the Main A/P. RDR ALTM toggles HUGS display up and down. PATH engages LNAV ALT engages VNAV.The hat switches on the throttle adjust CRSE left and right, ALTITUDE and HEADING. The sliver side switch (left side) gear UP and gear down. The silver slide switch topmost right side pull towards you sounds passenger alert chime push away from you toggles the JETWAY. Middle silver button, pull toward you deploys airbrakes to 50% (max detent during flight) return to center turns off spoilers. Push fully forward ARMS spoilers for landing (but does not deploy them). Red bottom side switch pull towards you toggle A/P CMD A push away from you toggle A/P CMD BThe right rotator grey switch I use FSUIPC to set that axis for FLAPS. On the 737 it works perfectly. Centered is 10 degrees, fully down is 40 and fully up is 0. Try it. AMAZING.You may wish to assign things differently, but the great thing about LINDA is it's simple to use. Get version 1.11 (free from AVSIM). Consider donating to LINDA if you like it. A LOT of work went into it and it now supports up to 10 joysticks.Tip: The Logitech G13 keypad is NOT, repeat NOT recognized or supported by LINDA. It won't work because LINDA sees it as a KEYPAD not as a JOYSTICK.I hope this topic saves some of you a lot of the pain I encountered. Be aware that FSUIPC REGISTERED version is required, the free version won't do what you need it to do AFAIK. They constantly update software, be sure you have the latest versions. FSUIPC and LINDA both "live" in your FSX MODULES folder.It's wise and critically important to do frequent regular "rotating" backups. Get a good backup program, be sure you understand not only how to back up, but how to RESTORE (from your backup) and how to 'test' your backup to be sure your system can "READ IT" (iow, it's not "corrupt"). I personally like ACRONIS True Image Home 2011, they have 2012 out now. It's not super intuitive, but it's pretty strong and it will send you emails to notify when jobs complete, and it can turn your system off after the backup finishes.Keep the blue side up!Robert

    LINDA is the best - a "MUST HAVE" for FSX!

    Hats Off to Linda!The finest add on since FSUIPC! If you have a set of controllers with mulitple buttons (Joysticks, Throttles, Etc) you want to TRY OUT LINDA!It's the best! Why? Simple to set up and use, easy to debug (if needed) and GREAT online support!My Thrustmaster Hotas is 2x as good because LINDA offers Assignable SHIFT controls, local and entire device. So I can "Shift" the buttons just on my Throttle and the ones on the Joystick are left undisturbed. Thus the 22 buttons on the throttle become 44.In my case I use the shifted throttle buttons to kill Engines 1 and 2 on my 737NGX. Thus I cannot 'accidentally' kill an engine while in flight!It's great to be able to assign toggle switches to put the HUGS up and down, and I use the grey slide lever on the right side of throttle plate to control the PMDG Flaps - works a treat. Other buttons allow quick set of CRSE, ALT and HEADING. Landing Lights (Main) Landing Lights (Taxi) Landing Lights (Runway Turnoff) are all on separate switches on the throttle console. Parking brake, Altimeter reset, Spoilers, and so on.What does this mean to you?The TM HOTAS Warthog can provide a level of immersion that is several notches above the plain vanilla controllers on the market, and at a lot lower price point than the upper-end hardware from PFC and GoFlight.I highly recommend you try LINDA. I am going to donate to them!
