  1. Tried to find a good place to post this so if this is not the best place, please advise... I have a new JETLINE system computer and new MCPPRO2, EFISPRO, COM, NAV and ATC modules that I am trying to get running. These units are daisy chained over Ethernet to the local LAN I have installed the drivers, made the addition to the PMDG 737NGX_Options.ini file, and am able to open FS_COM. However when I go to connect, I am getting the following error: "Run Time Error 40006. Wrong Protocol or Connection State for the transaction or request" I am running Windows 10 PRO 64 bit with P3DV4 and connected through my local LAN. My local LAN host is IP so I have changed the IP number of the MCP to and I am able to ping that address and get valid responses from the MCP. I have left the port at 4500 but have tried other ports with the same error response. Any experience with this configuration would be helpful...
  2. Hi, I don't know if it is a bug or something I don't understand about the airplane, but I am not able to replicate the intended behavior of the autopilot during take off. SID is setup, I have LNAV selected on the MCP and armed on the FMA, AT is also ARMED on the FMA. So I select 40% N1 with my throttle, then I press the TOGA hotspot below the course select knob. On the FMA I expect to see N1, HDG/SEL and TO/GA but there is only the N1, the roll and pitch mods are empty. See the screen shots below, first one of before I press toga, second one after I press TOGA. N1 on the FMA is now THR HLD as expected but no roll or pitch mode have been activated by the TOGA. What am I missing? Thanks for any help, Ram Homier
  3. Hi Marc, Your latest project, the Remote Overhead for NGX, got me thinking. Is there any possibility of a Remote MCP (Autopilot) for the 777, 747 QOT, or NGX? Thanks, Mike
  4. Hi everybody ! I just started using P3d V4 and i absolutley love it ! however i have some Trouble when it Comes to my Goflight MCP Pro. I searched everywhere but couldnt find an answer. Are the Project Opensky Planes using the Default FSX/P3d Autopilot Module ? Because somehow it didnt work for me with a 737-800 i downloaded. Most of the Default P3d planes work just fine. thanks in advance amd greetngs from LSZH Stephane
  5. So I finally got the MCP from Opencockpits (v3, no box, Honeywell with backlight). I thought that this 'Plug and Play' product would be that, more or less. 3 hrs in, still scratching my head. This is for use with PMDG NGX in FSX. I understand that I need the connecting interface, SIOC, by the manufacturer, but there's another plugin required in order for it to communicate with PMDG. And this far I've only found this thing called OC4BA. The software is roughly 50€!!! I'm not in the financial mood to spend that at the moment.. There's a freeware version, but it is said not to work with the latest version of NGX. If anyone here use these products together, please let me know how to set it up in the easiest way. I've found a few tutorials like this one: Which ALMOST takes me all the way, but there's always ONE link to a program I need to download which is dead, stopping me.. At the moment I have come as far as changing the SIOC.ini, that's about it. :( Any help here is greatly appreciated. Cheers, /Johan
  6. Is there ever going to be any more assistance here? I have been unable to get answers to emails or inquiries. My MCP has not worked for months, all rotary dials are not working. Joe
  7. I have a MCP 737EL from CPflight which works perfecltly on the PMDG B737 NGX. If I want to use it on the B747 QOTS only the FD and the AT switches work. All the other selectors don't work. I did a hardware-check and it was working perfect. Is there a driver missing? What do I have to do to make it working?

  9. I cannot find any specific documentation on the AUX and Lights buttons. I have read that the base VRInsight MCP II product drives the radio section when Linda is used. But cannot find any specifics for the Lights and AUX buttons. They do not seem to work on my unit. Please HELP. I have another post dates April 27, 2016 that NO ONE has bothered to answer. Is LINDA no longer being supported. The basic VRInsisge documentation leaves much to be desired for detail.
  10. Is there any documentation of the VRInsight MCP II Radio Commands? I can view the diagram in the MCP II Documentation but there is no explanation of the function. E.G is Comm a select of the comm? Where in the Radio function is Comm2 selected. When one looks at the Linda Window, there is no assignment to the Comm buttons. For example, the MCP II documentation shows Swap (<-->), AUX and Lights. What are these used for (I know swap switches primary and secondary frequencies, but how are they displayed? I can't seem to find any documentation on this section in either Linda or VRInsight documentation. Please help.
  11. LINDA 2.5 is now the recommended version! LINDA 2.0 FORMAL RELEASE (2.0.7) This new release is as a result of Project Linda2Airbus aimed at making the excellent LINDA utility compatible with the VRInsight Airbus FCU Combo. Thanks to the generosity of the original developers in giving me access to the source code I have developed LINDA 2.0 to provide full compatibility with both the Boeing MCPII and Airbus FCU; it has not be tested with the original MCP but should be compatible. This formal release provides full GUI programming for the FCU by expanding LINDA's existing functionality. It has been extensively tested with the Aerosoft Airbus X A320/A321 v1.16 and PMDG Boeing 737NGX along with other types. This release also includes an update to the Aerosoft Airbus Extended 2.4 configuration Lua files to ensure full functionality with the Airbus FCU (2.5b10). Instructions and details of the release can be downloaded here - PLEASE READ THEM FULLY: LINDA 2.0.7 Formal Release notes.pdf and the replacement LINDA installation files here: LINDA 2.0.7 Formal Release Installation Zip File REMEMBER TO BACKUP ALL YOUR EXISTING LINDA FILES BEFORE INSTALLING THIS RELEASE. NO RESPONSIBILITY CAN BE ACCEPTED FOR ADVERSE AFFECTS ON YOUR INSTALLATION. Post any queries and feedback on this thread. Please report all error messages in full so that I can diagnose where any problem lay. Please note that this version has been completed under a limited trial software development environment licence which has now expired. Therefore, no further changes can be made in the short term although changes to Aerosoft Airbus X files will be forthcoming. However, please report all problems on this thread. Andrew --------------------------------------------------- Edit by Guenseli: here is the post with the latest version 2.0.8 Note: we will work together on a new version (probably 2.1) and will clean after that the forum from all that different versions
  12. Does anyone know the keyboard command to open the MCP window with PMDG 737 ngx? I just want to assign a pushbutton to open and close the window. Thanks
  13. To make LINDA work with the PMDG P-8A Poseidon, all you have to do is add a single line to one of the configuration files. To do this, navigate to C:\...\<your FSX folder>\Modules\linda\aircrafts\PMDG 737NGX and open ident.lua with notepad. Below the line already present, add simfolder="PMDG 737" and save. Now LINDA (and thus the MCP Combo, should you have one) works with the PMDG P-8A Poseidon.
  14. Hello everyone, I'm releasing the first phase of three phases of 737NGX MCP training videos. The first phase covers the Pitch Modes and is made up of 9 videos. They are now being uploaded to my YouTube Channel: Start viewing with MCP 1, then MCP 2, then MCP 3, etc. Since I'm estimating there will be approximately 20 videos in total for this series, you probably should write down which ones you have viewed so you don't get lost. Me and my review team are now working on the Roll Mode videos and those will be released in 3 to 4 weeks. After the Roll Mode videos are released, we will finish up the series with the Misc MCP modes and switches. As always with my Basics Boot Camp Series, these are all being made available free of charge. If you have any questions or comments please email at the address shown in the videos. Thank you for your support and enjoy...!!!

  16. Hi All! I usually don't understand the basic terminology of forums so i'll try and keep it simple. I recently bought the FS2Crew version 2.3 for my PMDG 737 600-900 NGX and everything about it is great apart from a tiny problem I have with setting my MCP using voice commands eg"set heading two four eight" or "set altitude two thousand". If you have any ideas on the fix for this problem I would be extremely appreciative. Regards Calzie99
  17. Hi! Does anybody know where I can find a full size layout of the MCP without switches?
  18. Good day folks, I just like to know, if it is possible to use 2d cockpit popups as on the 737 NGX, like the mcp (very important), FMC, EFIS, etc. Then I gonna buy this awesome bird! Thanks in advance. Cheers, Tom
  19. Hi there, is anybody else trying to let the opencockpits PnP MCP work with the QualityWings Ultimate BAe 146 Collection? I am new to the oc-MCP programming. Is it possible? Or are information of qw (offsets) missing? Regards Abt
  20. Hello everybody, I hope you can help me with a problem. Since a while I use the mcp & efis from opencockpits with the PMDG 737NGX. Today I bought the FMC from opencockpits, and downloaded RKsoftware to let it run. The FMC runs fine, however, the MCP and EFIS are useless. The EFIS isn't functioning at all, and the MCP shows wrong digits, and when pressing a button on the mcp, it is pressing a different button on the MCP on FSX. I think there is a problem with the scripts, but I cant figure out what it is. I'm running the ''OCP4NGX_MCP-EFIS-CDU v1.05.ssi'' by the way. Thanks in advance! Niels
  21. I installed the unregistered version of FSUIPC4(Ver4.84), Linda v1.11 with module 1.7 for NGX and FSX with SP2. If I used the VRi software, the MCP Combo II(Boeing) works. If I use Linda(do not run the VRi software), the panel lights blink when FSX starts, but I never get past the "Select your Aircraft and FLY Now" on the MCP LCD. No buttons or knobs work. Everything is green on the Linda GUI. The PMDG737NGX choosen in the LINDA GUI when I press FSX sync. Clicking the "Reload Lua Engine" gives me a status line on the FS display, but nothing changes. OS: Win7 64bit In FSUIPC.ini, I can find these two lines [VRInsight] 1=com3 no [Luafiles] and [MacroFiles] sections in that file. Appreciate any suggestions.
  22. I remember there being someone in the forum that found a way to increase the rate of change of the HDG & CRS knobs on the MCP of the NGX. Is it possible to do this? If so how? Thanks.
  23. After a rather lengthy telephone call up to Oregon (USA) speaking with GoFlight tech support, I was disappointed to learn that GF does not directly support PMDG aircraft AT ALL. GF was trying to suggest that using the iFly 737NG would be a better 'fix' for using the GoFlight MCP Boeing-type panel - but I am loyal to the NGX by PMDG.That said, I am confronted with now revisiting my initial plans about cockpit hardware and reconsidering VRInsight Combo II MCP. Question #1 is: Does the VRI unit come with all the buttons & button labels "pre-installed" onto the device or does the end-user (ME) have to install buttons and/or glue button decals onto the VRI unit?This will be a major consideration in my final decision. I am not artistically inclined and doing such would be a major PITA for me. Therefore anyone who purchased the VRInsight Combo II new... I would appreciate knowing thanks.Robert McDonald
  24. HiI try to ask to set by voice, course, altitude and speed but Fo doesn't accept to do any command only after takeoff.I know you follow the sop very carfully but is it possible to add this future?Another wish is it possible to make a mix of Ground power unit and then APU as we do in general.thank you
  25. I'm not sure when this started, but at some point in my flight, all of the numbers on various gauges (MCP, radios, etc...) went dim. The autopilot ones appeared a bit brighter (but not much) after I turned off the dome light, which I had accidentally left on, but the radios are completely indiscernible. Any ideas?Thanks,boeing247
