  1. Pete, I am in the process of building a 737 Max cockpit. The MIP is a Flight Deck Solutions product. The avionics software is Sim-A. But I am interested in utilizing more affordable products for the Overhead, Pedestal, and Pedestal. I know that since Sim-A is 100% seamlessly compatible with "ALL" FDS products, there is no issue regarding integration pf hardware peripherals. But if I decide to use, as an example, products from Sim World, Sismo-Soluciones, Open Cockpits, etc., for the hardware peripherals, I need to know that I can get them integrated with no problems. I posed a question to Mark Hastings, software developer of Sim-A, and here was his reply preceded by my questions. "Reading release notes and presentation of the new 737Max Sim-A software, if I understand correctly, any hardware peripherals that can connect to the flight simulator (P3Dv4) via FSUIPC, is compatible with Sim-A. As an example: Sim-A makes no note regarding the center pedestal gauges. COM/NAV, Transponder, WX Radar, etc. If I were to build a center pedestal with I/O cards that can communicate with P3Dv4 via FSUIPC, everything should work? And I assume that the same would be for TQ, FWD and AFT OVHD as well. Just pulling straws here." Stephen "Yes you are able to assign FSUIPC offsets to input/output functions in the Server. The assignments are held in \Server\FSUIPC_IO.ini (Also editable via the FSUIPC I/O Interface tab on the Server) For example in the IO file you would assign any spare offsets to functions : [FSUIPC_INPUTS] FUEL_PUMP_LEFT_FWD_SWITCH=5300 TCAS_MODE_SWITCH=5301 The FSUIPC inputs must be enabled via the checkbox on the Server Control Panel Tab. The Server will then monitor the values in the assigned offsets. So if the value in x5300 = 1 the Fuel pump will switch ON The Radios and XPNDR freqs can be interfaced with P3D in the usual way. Nothing special is required there. Just a few additional functions - like the TCAS Mode etc. Outputs are assigned in a similar way : [FSUIPC_OUTPUTS] OH_FUEL_PUMP_LEFT_FWD=5925 OH_FUEL_PUMP_LEFT_AFT=5926b0 The Server would populate the assigned offset with a 1 or 0 for the annunciator and "your" software would monitor the value and set the light accordingly. Note : you can assign full offsets or particular bits in the offset to a function."_________________Mark Hastings Software Developer Sim-Avionics Pete: Mark makes the statement "The Server would populate the assigned offset with a 1 or 0 for the annunciator and "your" software would monitor the value and set the light accordingly. Note : you can assign full offsets or particular bits in the offset to a function." What software would he be referring to? Regards, Step[hen
  2. I will take a second look. And I do not fly any default aircraft. I may have to slide one over from my AI folder, for that is where I put them, and see if I get the same results. Thanks for replying Pete. Stephen
  3. Pete, I am running P3Dv4.3 w/ FSUIPC v5.14. I am having a strange problem. I do not know where to turn to fix it. Can't seem to figure out where the settings are wrong. My nose steers opposite of my rudder deflection! (PMDG 737NGX). If I look at the "Tiller" upon rudder deflection, it also indicates the opposite of the rudder pedals. Ultimately I would like to have a separate tiller command, with no rudder operation on the ground. Regards, Stephen

    Falcon 7X

    I am having a sound issue with the Falcon 7X. I start my flight parked cold and dark, and I am getting a loud external noise. Sounds like one engine running. Anyone know how to eleiminate the loud sound? Also., right engine spin animation not showing when engine is running. Regards, Stephen
