Standard default library functions may be used for many operations (eg. landing gear and flaps). Please report all issues and suggestion under LINDA Support.
  2. Hello guys, how are you? Weel, I just bought a VRinsight FCU-COmbo, and I'm losing my head tryng to make this work. I think that something so expensive must be easyer to install. My isso is that the FCU dos not work on P3d. Here goes some info: P3D version 3.4.22 Linda 3.0.5 Aerosoft module 4.4 v3 FSUIPC 4.973, with the original registration key. Well, I did the MCP configuration on linda based on the manual, He finds the FSUIPC normaly. I first run linda as admin. I change the aircraft to Aerosoft Airbus, and sync. I open the P3D, with a default aircraft. I change the aircraft to any Airbus from Aerosoft. I go back to linda and change again the aircraft to aerosoft, but, and here cames the problem, when I click on SYNC, linda says LINDA not sync-ed to the FLT SIm. Anybody can save me? BEst Regards!
  3. Hello guys, I'm currently building my own G1000 hardware with arduino due. I'm using P3D v3.2 and carenado 172SP G1000 as software. I am able to use LINDA for most of PFD's function. My problem is now reading / writing input for direct-to on PFD. I use LINDA tracer and get following Lvar activated when using direct-to button and outer FMS knob: TMP_PFDScratchpadIndex, PseudoScratchpadIndex, PFDSCRATCHPAD_TEMPORAL_INDEX, G1000_EnteringInput My problem is when I rotating inner FMS knob (from carenado VC) to enter airport / navaid into direct-to page, I couldn't get any Lvar or FS control reacted to the rotation. Any idea how to access scratchpad from LINDA ? Thank you. Best regards, Nikko

    Note to all VRi MCP1 Users

    I have recently answered several queries from owners of the original VRInsight MCP1 panel. They report that LINDA is not working with their MCP1 with advanced aircraft like the PMDG 737NGX and Aerosoft Airbus A318/A319/A320/A321. The reason is twofold. First, the config-mcp.lua file has been generated from the default aircraft configuration for SPD/HDG/ALT and these are not suitable for more complicated aircraft like PDMG and Aerosoft products. You need to go through the specific module menu and assign functions specifically written for your aircraft. Second, because your MCP panel is no longer sold, neither I nor Guenselli, have this panel to create a specific config-lua.default file for MCP1 users. However, I have been working on this problem. Using 2.9.x there is now a method of copying the MCP2 configuration to work with your MCP1 panel. The procedure is as follows: Open LINDA and manually select PDMG737NGX or other aircraft from the dropdown. Go to Setup MCP. Select MCP2(Boeing) and save. Select the Combo MCP page. Click twice on the EFIS Mode 3 tick box at bottom (or make any other change) to highlight save button. Hold down CTRL key and click on SAVE. You will see a confirm message that MCP1 config-hid.lua file has been created. Go to Setup MCP and change back to MCP1 panel and save. Start your flight sim and load the above aircraft. Select FSXSync ON (orange box). You should now have functioning SPD/HDG/ALT knobs and buttons. Please note that not all LINDA aircraft modules will have a config-mcp2.default file. The default aircraft supplied with your flt sim (eg. Beechcraft 58) will work with the default functions included in the default template and the library LIB-FSX Default.
  5. For those users thinking of upgrading to P3D v4.2 I can confirm that LINDA 3.0.5 works fine with it provided you revert FSUIPC5 back to v5.122. The latest FSLABS A320X v231 (requires P3Dv4.2) also works as before with the latest LINDA beta module.
  6. Hi all With the work I have been doing with LINDA to produce version 2.0 offering full compatibility with the Boeing MCP and Airbus FCU, I have discovered some anomalies with the way LINDA responds to Joystick button presses. I am seeking feedback from other users so that I can identified where further improvements can be made. For the joystick functions to work it is necessary to have LINDA running. However, I have found one example that requires that the Joystick Tab must be selected. In my example, on my Saitek throttle quadrant I have reverse thrust set up on one of the lever microswitches as follows: On Press = FSX: THROTTLE DECR:0 On Repeat: FSX: THROTTLE DECR:0 On Release: FSX: THROTTLE CUT:0. I find that if the Joystick Tab is not selected, 2 things happen: first the reverse thrust does not always operate when needed and second after cancellation the throttle is repeatedly jumping from normal to reverse and back again making taxying to the stand difficult. Another example passed to me is that the LOCAL and GLOBAL SHIFT, in some situations, tends to latch on and won't cancel on release. If you have anymore examples, please reply with as much detail as you can. This will assist my analysis. Many thanks.

    Problems with HOTAS Warthog

    Hi guys, I got to the point when I really need your help After fighting with LINDA for a couples of days, I still cannot make it work, unfortunately (most probably it's my own stupidity, but anyway) I have FSUIPC 4.853, last version of LINDA, and a couple of planes addons (now favorite one PDMG 737 and A2A 51); none of them is working with LINDA, I make a set up on Warthog in LINDA, save it but in FSX there is nothing happening when i touch any button on my joystick neither on throttle when I use aircraft-specific commands, for ex Eng1 GeneratorSwitch o/off, Battery1Switch on/off etc. using WoP3_P51D set of commands. Any idea, please? Thank you in advance for you help Forgot to add: Thrustmaster T.A.R.G.E.T. was never installed, newlly set up Windows
  8. Hi I'm new on this forum. I have : -- P3D v3.4. -- LINDA 2.8.8. -- saitek radio panel -- saitek multi panel 1. I have a message error in P3d when I "reload LUA engine" --> "Saitek Multi panel is DETECTED but couldn't be opended. I don't know how to resolve this error. 2. When LINDA is open, the radio panel always show the "COM1" frenquency and erase information on the multi panel. Thanks for your help. Noel :smile:
  9. Hi all: I have a problem with the combo 1 (first version) and any version of the LINDA higher than 1.13. It always blocked the CH Yoke. It starts working well, but at the moment, just 5 or 10 seconds after.... it blocks the joke and it does not work anymore. I have the throttle quadrant also, but only the yoke is blocked. It seems that it blocks the windows driver, although I do not know if it is motivated by the fsuipc or LINDA itself. Thank you, in advance. José M. Plasencia Fuentes.
  10. Several users have reported various errors with devices not connecting to LINDA. Some of these errors are related to newer USB devices such as touch screens and the wireless mice/keyboards. To help you to get LINDA working, it is useful to know what device is causing the problem. Please follow the following guidelines when reporting the error: 1. Unplug the USB for all your devices (joysticks, throttles, touch screen), reboot your system and open LINDA. 2. Plug in each device one-at-a-time and ensure that LINDA shows the device on the Summary and Setup Joysticks pages and that buttons are highlighted on the Joysticks page. 3. If an error message is displayed, either as a pop up dialog or on the LINDA Console, note or take a screen shot of the full error message. 4. Find and note the Vendor and Product IDs (VID and PID) as described below. 5. Report your problem on the Support forum quoting the LINDA version you are using. I will do my best answer your problem. PID & VID The PID and VID can be viewed by opening the Device Manager and looking under Human Interface Devices. Find the device that is not being recognised by LINDA and open the properties (double click or right click and select properties). Then under Details, select Hardware Ids from the Property dropdown. The Vendor and Product IDs (VID/PID) appear in the first and second line as a 4 character hexadecimal number. The VID and PID are used by LINDA to work out the type of device and whether it should be included in the list of devices. UPDATE Further investigation and testing by affected users has identified that the ‘Device cannot be opened’ errors are being generated by the third-party library routines used by LINDA to interface with HID devices. Even updating to the latest version of the library has not resolved the problem with certain devices. There is nothing more I can do a this time with the LINDA code until the library is updated. The only way forward I can suggest is for affected users to isolate the USB device that is stopping the others working and leave it disconnected. Not a satisfactory situation I know.
  11. Users who have purchased or are thinking of purchasing the new Steam Edition of FSX (FSX-SE) will want to know that LINDA can be used with this latest version of Microsoft FSX. FSX-SE is installed using the Steam downloading service (priced £20 in UK). It is a big download at 10GB and took over 12 hours to download using my slow broadband internet connection. The main Steam directory is normally be installed in C:\Program Files (x86)\ but can be installed in the root directory as I did. When FSX-SE is installed it is buried deep in the Steam directory at \steam\steamapps\common\fsx. You will note that the folder has the same name as the boxed version of FSX. LINDA needs to be installed as normal in this FSX folder by copying both the \modules and \sound folders from the download and saying Yes to all overwrites. The main LINDA codes resides in the \Modules folder within FSX alongside the latest full (paid) version of FSUIPC (4.939). A shortcut should be created to LINDA.exe and placed in a convenient place on your Desktop. Remember this LINDA shortcut will be different from that used with your old FSX or Prepar3D. If you use all 3 flight simulators you will have 3 installation of LINDA. You will save yourself time by copying any configuration and aircraft files from your old FSX to FSX-SE. This will include files from \linda-cfg\aircrafts and \linda\aircrafts (just those aircraft you use and FSX Default)). If you FSX-SE on start reports that a copy of the program is already running, you probably find that LINDA is open and needs be closed before FSX-SE can be started.

    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
  16. After 8 weeks of development, trial and error and false starts, I am pleased to offer the next version of LINDA 2.6.0 as a Beta release. This version introduces dynamic connection and disconnection of Joysticks/Devices (switchable) and the ability to connect directly to Saitek Multi and Radio Panels. I am indebted to user Cooly for his excellent work on the Saitek panels. Before installing please READ THE INSTRUCTIONS AND MAKE A BACKUP OF YOUR MODULES FOLDER. Please report any observations and issues on this thread. All comments are welcome especially from users with Saitek Multi and Radio panels. The beta 11 can be downloaded from here. New Features/Fixed issues: Re-introduced HotKeys for saving 2D panel positions and removing windows titles (FSX and P3D). Added ATC library for using FSX ATC functions. Fixed issue where HID device names were not permanent. Fixed scroll bar on News panel. Removed old style CH Pedals from devices. Added ability to generate list of MCP and HID assignments to text files. IMPORTANT - due to an error in the previous beta versions it is possible that the system hid configuration file has become corrupted. If you get an Access Violation error with opening the Joystick page, delete the following file: \linda-cfg\system\config-hid.lua. It will be automatically created correctly the next time you start LINDA. Known Issues: The footer HID icons may initially mismatch the selected type. A short video on the installation and setup LINDA is here.
  17. All LINDA users are advised that no compatibility testing with Windows 10 has been carried out with the new Windows 10 release with any of the compatible flight simulators (FSX, FSX-SE or P3D). I have no intention to change my working or development systems until the new operating systems is proven to operate flawlessly with my setup and development tools. However, if LINDA users have or plan to cross to the dark side, please report your experience and success/failures here. There is nothing I will be able to assist but it will help others.
  18. As LINDA users will be aware I have let the real world get in the way of LINDA development and support. This busy period should come to an end towards the end of Oct 15. Please use this thread to lodge any suggestions for improvements and to raise any issues users are experiencing with LINDA 2.6.3. Even you have been in touch with me please post a detailed description of the problem and how to reproduce it. I cannot promise that everything will be included but it will allow me to assess the workload. Note: LINDA 2.6.4 has been issued to fix a problem with odd characters on the VRI Combo 2 (Boeing) panel and may fix some Range Check error reports.
  19. LINDA Problem and Fault Diagnosis - Guidance LINDA users reporting problems or faults with LINDA would greatly assist in the diagnosis of their problem by providing the following information: 1. LINDA application version (go to LINDA Settings/About). 2. LINDA aircraft module name and version (in LINDA header). 3. FSX or Prepar3D (P3D) version. 4. Aircraft supplier, model and version. 5. What were you trying to do (ie. connecting, programming functions, operating panel, etc). 6. A detailed description of what the problem is. Comments like “It doesn’t work” are not very helpful. 7. When requested or when red errors reported or when requested please do the following: Go to LINDA Setup page. Tick Developer Mode, GUI and LUA boxes. Select VERBOSE from the download menu. Open Console. Restart your Flt Sim and LINDA. Ensure that FSXSync or SYNC TO SIM is selected (aircraft outlined in orange). Run Flt Sim to reproduce error. Email FSUIPCx.LOG and LINDA2.LOG files (in /modules/ folder) together with the config-hid.lua or config-mcpX.lua for the aircraft you are using to LINDA @ (remove spaces). IMPORTANT. You may need to remove a block on logging in FSUIPCx.ini. You need to open it in the editor and search for the line LogOptionProtect and change it to NO. You will need to restart FSX/P3D after doing this. With this information I will try to offer help to get users flying with LINDA.

    LINDA and P3D v4 64-Bit

    Hello. Will LINDA continue to work in the future? As a big fan and user of Linda, I ask myself exactly this question. Against the backdrop of a 64-bit version of the Flight Simulator Prepar3D, which is expected to be released in the future, discussions are constantly taking place that 32-bit programs such as Linda would no longer work with a 64-bit P3D version. Since it would be for me of immense importance to learn how this with LINDA and P3D 64-Bit behaves. Cheers Christian

    NOOB Query about Modules

    I have only found Linda in the last few days and have a small query which I think is an easy answer but for the life of me I cannot figure out. I have the Saitek Yoke (and Throttle), Rudder, Multi Panel and Switch Panel and I'm using FSX Acceleration, FSUIPC 4.937 and SPAD 0.5.0. I have the PMDG 747 so thought I would simply have to download the module developed by Pero and voila! I would be able to assign actions to buttons to my hearts content. Unfortunately, whilst the PMDG 747 is listed there are no options to choose from. I get the choice of Edit Modules and System Functions but under System Functions only "InitVars" is displayed where I was expecting to see a whole list of Functions. None of the documentation I have read seems to say that I needed to do anything else to get this to work (or maybe I am doing a "man read" much like my partner accuses me of doing "man looks" when trying to find something) Can someone please tell me what I have done wrong? PS. I installed Linda (2.5.5) to the root of the FSX Modules folder i.e. the path to Linda is C:\Microsoft Flight Simulator\Modules\Linda.exe Cheers Harry
  23. I have uploaded a LINDA module for the PA46 Malibu Mirage 350P to the library. Instructions for installing it are in the readme.txt file. I didn't inlcude a .cfg file since I have no idea what kind of hardware people have. The module covers nearly all the functionality of the aircraft. Some notes: I get a lot of skipping in my knobs on my VRInsight EFIS/MCP/Comm combo using the default functions so I wrote routines that work better for my unit. If you get skipping on your knobs HDG and NAV1 knobs, try them out and let me know if they help you. ADF knob functions are included. If your ADF compass won't rotate, this will resolve that for you. Even if you don't have or use this module, the pressurization dial on the aircraft often gets stuck. Seems that the aircraft has a small bug where it keeps looping to turn the dial to the left. Reloading LUA seems to clear that out. There are functions included for people using 2 position switches as well as momentary switches (like on the CH Throttle quadrant). If you are using 2 position switches for some of the Carenado 3 position switches (e.g. taxi/pulse) the module will do what it considers the smart thing. For example, if your strobes are on and you turn on Beacon with a switch it won't do anything...your Beacon is already on. Let me know if you have any issues or suggestions. You can download the LINDA Module here... DOWNLOAD NO LONGER AVAILABLE Gregg
  24. An updated PMDG737 NGX module 4.3 has been released for users of LINDA. A number additional buttons and selectors have been added with full animation. It has been fully tested on P3D v3.2. Andrew Gransden
  25. Hello All For some time now I have been using LINDA with my Saitek switch panel, Yoke & VRInsite MCP . Great tool, thank you Guenseli. But eventually I thought that it was time to add more buttons and switches. I decided to buy an Open Cockpits i/p, o/p board and build it myself, having had some experience with electronics and software, no problems except that I soldered all the diodes the wrong way round. Everything working ok, programmed most of the switches and lights with SIOC to operate via FSUIPC. But,as I a fly several different types of aircraft and it's not easy to detect in SIOC the aircraft currently in use. So, I used LINDA to write a bit to a user byte in FSUIC which I could then detect in SIOC. Each user.lua sets a different bit (Boeing, Airbus, default, ..etc). That was a bit better. But programming in SIOC is so... time consuming I though there has to be a better way. So more study and research. I thought to write LUA code to be run by FSUIPC. I looked at writing my own app and running it in LUA/FSUIPC but then I thought much of the code is already available in LINDA actions.lua but I don't want to touch that. After much trial and error and searching I found the lib-user.lua Just what I need. I don't need to write my own routines everything is available from here. So what now happens. All that SIOC does is operate one of the virtual joystick buttons in FSUIPC , e.g. # SIOC code Var 0994, name JoyStick1, Link FSUIPC_OUT, Offset $3340, Length 4 // Joystick address Var 0169, name SetJoyBtn, Link SUBRUTINE { IF &BtnSet = 1 { &JoyStick1 = SETBIT &BtnNumber } ELSE { &JoyStick1 = CLEARBIT &BtnNumber } } -- one variable for each button Var 0170, name PBtn1, Link IOCARD_SW, Device 3, Input 8, Type I { &BtnSet = &PBtn1 &BtnNumber = 1 CALL &SetJoyBtn } Var 0171, name PBtn2, Link IOCARD_SW, Device 3, Input 6, Type I { &BtnSet = &PBtn2 &BtnNumber = 2 CALL &SetJoyBtn } Var 0172, name PBtn3, Link IOCARD_SW, Device 3, Input 7, Type I { &BtnSet = &PBtn3 &BtnNumber = 3 CALL &SetJoyBtn } These button events are caught by LINDA in lib-user.lua # LINDA lib-user.lua code function handleButtons(joynum, button, downup) -- call handler VButton_handler (joynum, button, downup) -- this fuction is in the user.lua of each airplane -- or you can handle each event separtely (globaly) here. if button == 0 then end if button == 1 then end if button == 2 then end if button == 3 then end if button == 4 then end -- etc end -- function -- events for virtual joystick buttons event.button(64,0,3,"handleButtons") event.button(64,1,3,"handleButtons") event.button(64,2,3,"handleButtons") event.button(64,3,3,"handleButtons") event.button(64,4,3,"handleButtons") event.button(64,5,3,"handleButtons") -- etc and sent to the button handler which is in LINDA user.lua # LINDA user.lua function VButton_handler (joyNo,btnNo,downUp) -- switch case would be nice here -- only joy stick 64 -- FSUIPC is from 0 .. 31, Linda 1.. 32 if btnNo == 0 then VButton_1 (downUp) elseif btnNo == 1 then VButton_2 (downUp) elseif btnNo == 2 then VButton_3 (downUp) elseif btnNo == 3 then VButton_4 (downUp) elseif btnNo == 4 then VButton_5 (downUp) elseif btnNo == 5 then VButton_6 (downUp) end -- etc end -- end VButton_handler This means that each aircraft in LINDA has its own set of actions for the aircraft currently in use and has full access to all the LINDA code. BINGO!!! Also all the user.lua code can be edited in LINDA editor. lib-user.lua should not need to be changed except for generic actions. I put the default settings in the templates/users/user.lua for any new aircraft. At the moment all my encoders are working ok, but I think I might try write something to be able to control them better in lua. What would be 'icing on the cake', if it was possible to assign functions to the virtual joystick buttons from the LINDA interface, but I realize that that is not quite as simple as I first thought. :wub: My thanks to Guenseli and Peter Dowson for there dedication and great support. Hope that this will be of use to others A very happy Carliolian
