  1. Hi. New to Lua and programming in general, am I right in assuming that the function name can be anything I choose that is descriptive of its use? also I am trying to figure out why my code below wont work, nothing happens when I programme a switch on my X-55 with it. I used the LInda Tracer to find the Lvar relevant to opening the cockpit side door on the A2A Spitfire, and (after un-pausing FSX-S) the door opens by a command sent from the Linda Tracer "Set Value" Toggle (Shift+Ctrl+Alt+F10). Any help much appreciated. Linda 2.9.2 (487) Module: - A2A Spitfire (User) FSX-Steam Registered FSUIPC Windows 10 (1607 - Build 14393.693) -- %% Side Door function SPIT_Side_Door_Open () LVarSet = "CockpitSideDoor" ipc.writeLvar(LVarSet, 1) end function SPIT_Side_Door_Close () LVarSet = "CockpitSideDoor" ipc.writeLvar(LVarSet, 0) end -- ## ############### OR put in a simpler way (I think?) -- %% Side Door function SPIT_Side_Door_Open () ipc.writeLvar(CockpitSideDoor, 1) end function SPIT_Side_Door_Close () ipc.writeLvar(CockpitSideDoor, 0) end -- ## ############### Many Thanks Roger
  2. Hello, I would like to ask the community to see if there's any experienced programmers who specializes in Microsoft's Visual Studio. There was a 32-bit add-on for FSX and P3D v3 called PDF Kneeboard and it's such a must have tool for those who fly IFR/tubeliners. With the recent release of the 64-bit P3D v4, this add-on no longer works. It's basically a dll file. The source code is readily open and available for anyone who wishes to modify or add to it. So I was wondering if there's anyone here who may be interested in making this work with P3D v4. The source files are located here: Since I know nothing about programming, this is no task for me. I've already contacted the author and asked for permission to do so and he said it would be no problem, since he has no time to continue with this anymore, he's making it open source to anyone who wishes to do so. I'm not sure what it would take to make this 64bit compatible. Do you need to rewrite the code or just modify some parts, or simply just recompile it using a 64bit compiler?
  3. Hi all, using Linda 3.0.1 for P3D 64 bit just in a simple Beech Baron 58 with standard *FSX default (orange) settings. EFIS mode1 Ident GPS unable to launch GPS_ACTIVE_BUTTON 66614 neither Shift+3 record key press on any button on the MCP Combo MCP Mode and User Mode section working OK Standard *FSX Default working in MCP and User mode, not working in EFIS mode (VRiSim.exe and SerialFP2 working) Any suggestions?

    LINDA Module Flow - Understanding

    Using LINDA 2.8.6 FSX-SE FSUIPC 4 I have coded several switches to manipulate LVars in an MFD I coded for the Lear45H aircraft in FSX-SE. The functions are in the aircraft folder in user.lua. This is the file path: C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\FSX\Modules\linda\aircrafts\Lear45H\user.lua Other files in that folder are: actions.lua ExtPFD-Learjet.exe ident.lua Lear45H-user.lua The code in the start of the user.lua are: -- Dummy user functions file -- =========================== -- This file is loaded right after main actions.lua script loaded. -- You can use this file to: -- 1. Override any functions or settings in main script -- 2. Execute any desired startup sequence for this aircraft (i.e. your own c&d state macro) -- 3. ... use your imagination -- Just a message in console _log("[uSER] User's modifications script is loaded...") ident = ipc.get("PATH_ACFT") .. "/Lear45H-user.lua" if file_exists(ident) then _log("[sTART] Functions found: " .. dir) require(ident) else _log("[sTART] Error not found Lear45H-user.lua: ") end strProgram = '"C:\\Program Files (x86)\\Steam\\steamapps\\common\\FSX\\Modules\\linda\\aircrafts\\Lear45H\\ExtPFD-Learjet.exe"' if file_exists(strProgram) then _log("[sTART] Lear PFD found: ") strCmd = 'start "" '..strProgram os.execute(strCmd) else _log("[sTART] Error not found Lear PFD: ") end function L45E_FMS () _L45E_FMS () end function L45E_NAV () _L45E_NAV () end function L45E_HSI () _L45E_HSI () end The Functions for example _L45E_FMS () are located in Lear45H-user.lua. These functions were assigned in the LINDA GUI and were contained in the User Functions drop-down when the Lear45H aircraft was selected. config-user.lua -- ## Jet Joystick ## (073822370) ## {NoSerNum} ############ JSTK["073822370"][1]="Brakes" JSTK["073822370"][5]="Flaps_up" JSTK["073822370"][6]="Flaps_incr" JSTK["073822370"][7]="Gears_toggle" JSTK["073822370"][301]="Trim_ELEVATOR_up" JSTK["073822370"][303]="Trim_AILERON_right" JSTK["073822370"][305]="Trim_ELEVATOR_down" JSTK["073822370"][307]="Trim_AILERON_left" -- ## DTA Pulse ## (16D004890) ## {NoSerNum} ############ JSTK["16D004890"][1]="L45E_HSI" JSTK["16D004890"][2]="L45E_TAC" JSTK["16D004890"][3]="L45M_Btn1" JSTK["16D004890"][4]="L45M_Btn2" JSTK["16D004890"][5]="L45M_Btn3" JSTK["16D004890"][6]="L45M_Btn4" JSTK["16D004890"][7]="L45M_Btn5" JSTK["16D004890"][8]="L45M_Btn6" The LINDA Lua editor showed a few errors which were corrected. When I open the aircraft in FSX-SE, everything seems normal, except I see no log messages from the user.lua file and apparently neither the Lear45H-user.lua module nor ExtPFD-Learjet.exe were loaded. I get an error when I pressed a button in the DTA Pulse HID. The LINDA Console displayed and the FSUIPC Log file contained the following: 13562 Running in "Microsoft Flight Simulator X", Version: 10.0.62615.0 (SimConnect: 10.0.62615.0) 13562 Initialising SimConnect data requests now 13562 FSUIPC Menu entry added 14640 \\DONNADAVEKITCHE\Users\DaveDonna\Documents\Flight Simulator X Files\Lear KAVL.FLT 14640 C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\FSX\SimObjects\Airplanes\Lear45H\Lear45.air 32125 Weather Mode now = Theme 36922 Aircraft="Learjet 45 CAF" 36937 System time = 19/01/2017 14:38:05, Simulator time = 14:37:59 (19:37Z) 125297 Starting everything now ... 125359 Using "C:\Program Files (x86)\GoFlight\GFDEV.DLL", version 125375 LUA.0: beginning "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\FSX\Modules\ipcReady.lua" 125390 LUA.0: ended "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\FSX\Modules\ipcReady.lua" 125640 LUA.1: *************************** STARTING LINDA ************************** 125656 LUA.1: LINDA:: [sTART] Loading System Configuration files 125765 LUA.1: LINDA:: [sTART] WARNING - All LUA logging switched off !!! 125781 LUA.1: LINDA:: [sTART] Go to Setup LINDA to switch on (if required) 125797 LUA.1: LINDA:: ********************************************************************* 126062 LUA.1: LINDA:: [sTART] System Configuration files loaded 128843 Advanced Weather Interface Enabled 148125 *** LUA Error: ...\common\FSX\modules\linda/aircrafts/Lear45H/user.lua:40: attempt to call global '_L45E_HSI' (a nil value) 204265 Sim stopped: average frame rate for last 83 secs = 8.5 fps Can you help me find what I am doing wrong? I cannot find in the LINDA GUI where to turn on the log but assume any _log function call would put the message on the console and in the FSUIPC log. The folder Lear45H was created using the LINDA GUI with the default FSX aircraft as a pattern. I was getting an error that the action.lua file was missing until I copied it from the FSX Default folder to the Lear45H folder. Thanks
  5. In 2012 Robert Mc Donald had an article on programming of the Hotas Wartog. This was a marvel of an article but instead of the images that was in the article it just say Posted Image and nothing shows. Is it possible either to come in contact with Mc Donald or to find the posted images Henning R,
