This update offers automated installation of LINDA and aircraft modules together with ability to backup and restore the \modules folder. See Annex A in Release Notes for details. LINDA 2.9.x provides full compatibility with all variants of the VRInsight Combo panel: the original MCP1, the Combo II MCP (Boeing) and Combo FCU (Airbus). It supersedes all previous versions.

Fixed opening of current aircraft README.TXT file on CTRL+Click on Edit button. Added extra dividers in pop-up menus for better grouping when — $$ label used. Saitek Panel users should ensure that the Saitek Panel checkbox (in LINDA Setup) is deselected/unticked to allow LINDA to control these devices. This is different to the wording on the page. See the release notes in the download for full details of key changes. It is worth considering a fresh installation when upgrading. After backing up your \modules\linda and \linda-cfg, install 2.9.x before copying back you \linda\aircrafts and \linda-cfg\aircrafts folders. Additionally, restore the Joystick device configuration file (\linda-cfg\system\config-hid.lua) to ensure that previous joystick setup are correctly restored. You will need the latest paid and licenced version of FSUIPC installed. All bug and issues should be reported on the project thread on the LINDA support sub-forum. Backup BEFORE TRYING TO INSTALL THIS VERSION YOU SHOULD BACKUP YOUR COMPLETE CURRENT LINDA INSTALLATION. BACKUP FROM YOUR MAIN FSX/FSX-SE/P3D MODULE FOLDER THE FOLLOWING FILE AND FOLDERS: LINDA.EXE, LINDA.LAU, IPCREADY.LUA, /LINDA AND /LINDA-CFG. NO RESPONSIBILITY OR LIABILITY CAN BE TAKEN FOR ADVERSE AFFECTS ON YOUR INSTALLATION. Installation For users who have not successfully installed LINDA 2.8.x, you are recommended to delete all LINDA files and folders after backing up. After the next step copy back you \linda\aircrafts and \linda-cfg\aircrafts. Un-zip the folder and copy the files into the main FSX folder. You must have also installed the VRInsight software and drivers for the Combo II (Boeing) and Airbus FCU from http://vrinsight.com/devel_shot/ under the link Install Base Package VRiSim. However, once installed you should not run the VRiSim software at the same time as LINDA. Known Issues When using LINDA to control the Saitek Pro Flight Panels (Switch, Radio and Multi), it is necessary to operate all switch/button on each panel prior to take off to ensure that the panel state is correctly read. There can be a delay on operating the Saitek controls and the displays updating. When the Saitek Switch Panel is first operated 3 sound errors appear in red in the Console window. This has no effect on correct operation. Previous Versions Previous LINDA 2.9.3 v1 LINDA 1.13 - for MCP1 (original) users
