    Project Linda2Airbus

    I am a newcomer to the VRInsight MCP Combo product only discovering it a couple of few weeks ago. As a dedicated Airbus flight simulator flyer (X-Plane JAR Design A320neo and FSX Aerosoft Extended X Airbus A320/A321), after some research, I ordered the MCP Combo Airbus FCU version. The design and build quality is excellent but I immediately found the software support limited. The VRISim driver replicates the Airbus functionality but I found the key mapper flaky and impossible to master. Further research on the internet revealed the brilliant LINDA (Lua Integrated Non-complex Device Assigning) freeware which provides an easy and highly flexible interface for programming all the functions on the VRInsight Combo II MCP and other controller buttons (joysticks, yokes, throttle quadrant). However, the LINDA developers have (at present) decided not to support the Airbus FCU variant. I was not going to let that stop me with my real-world airborne software maintenance background. Hence, Project Linda2Airbus. In the past week I have reworked the Lau code behind LINDA to program all the functions for reading and actioning all the buttons, switches and rotary knobs on the Airbus FCU and am in the progress of defining the display functions to replicate the Airbus displays. The only problem is that modifications will be required to the LINDA user interface. My aim will be to present the developers of LINDA (Guenter Steiner and his colleagues) with a full set of code and data to upgrade LINDA to support all the VRInsight Combo variants. There will be a short delay due to a hardware failure with my Airbus FCU (with a horrible electrical burning smell) but my replacement is on its way. Watch this space.

    [old] LINDA 2.0 Released

    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

    Airbus FCU would not initialise

    1. 2.7.0 (254) 2. Aerosoft Airbus 3. FSX 2.1 4. Aerosoft Airbus 1.31 5. Trying to get my new FCU to work with aircraft in FSX 6. My FCU is now in manufacturer state "Dream Supplier". I have enabled MCP with Airbus FCU in Linda, along with COM10 which i doubled checked in Device Manager. I have left Linda running with Aerosoft Airbus profile, open up FSX, the FCU flashes once but still see the "Dream Supplier" rather than "Fly Now" (which I have seen in videos on youtube). Loaded the aircraft and checked the Console for any red errors which didnt come up 7. LUA.1: *************************** STARTING LINDA ************************** LUA.1: [sTART] LINDA Loading...
