  1. Thank you Pete The CP flight MCP uses an ASCII protocol where command is transmitted as a string followed by a binary zero as a terminator, so the command D0001 (see Command List) is built by an ASCII string ( D0001 ) + an end binary character ( 0 ) Some commands related to the configuration and analog/digital I/O have a mix of ASCII and binary data. This exception is used to optimize data transmission where necessary. Command are sent by the MCP only when a data changes; same commands may be used towards the MCP to set display value and key-light status. The area i am interested in is this: Project magenta will silence the bell, using offset 5653.7 This is as far as i get so far. I do not know how to make the pushing of the button on the CPflight H/W then somehow be acknowledged and a offset sent to PM. I presume i need some form of data converter software or a way for these two sw to read/write together. Thank you
  2. Thank you for the reply. Is it possible that fsuipc button allocations could cause this? i have additional buttons in the fsuipc file and I can’t remember what they do. Maybe they are continuously toggling pushback? As a side topic, 5653 .7 bellcutout for PM, could you kindly advise how I put that into fsuipc or PM instructor station. My firebell sound doesn’t stop when I press the cutout on the glareshield. Thank you and best wishes
  3. Hello All, Hope you are well. I have a problem with FSX pushing back continuously. I have attached my FSUIPC log that shows things being pressed even though i am not pressing anything. One of them is toggle pushback :0) perhaps you would be kind enough to tell me how to stop these processes? I have read that it could be in the standard.xml file in the appdata that needs to be disabled or deleted, which is what i will do next. Thanks for any pointers! Best Wishes FSUIPC4.log
  4. Thank you Thomas and John. I have read your comments 10 times and still do not understand. I presume from your help that my way forward in FSUIPC is not correct. I do not want you to think that i am not reading manuals, i assure you in general in undertaking this project i have read the PM manuals, CPFlight manuals, FSUIPC manuals, FSX manuals, SIOC manuals, Flight Illusion manuals, Networking manuals, and IntefaceIT manuals and sometimes just giving enough time to a problem makes it work - also known as blind luck ! :0) For the offset code you kindly provided and explored all references to it online including the manuals, hence connecting to this 2015 topic. I will keep trying to learn more and will approach Enrico again. I cant thank you enough for your support. KR
  5. Hi Thomas Thank you very much. Please clarify, do you mean CPFlight manuals or Project Magenta manuals? Without knowing the answer to the above it is difficult, but i expect it may be FSUIPC based? For example i go to FSUIPC GUI press the fire cut out button on the MIP, the button appears in the GUI and i set it as "PM GC controls (by param)", in the offset i put 5653 and param .7 Maybe that is correct? Thanks again, i could not have kept this project alive without your help.
  6. Hi John Thanks for your reply. I can only silence the alarm by clearing the failure in the project magenta instructor station. No amount of button pushing works.... Thanks
  7. Hello, Symptom: Fire bell not silencing when pressing the fire warn cut out switch next to the six pack. Setup: Project magenta based full scale 737. Running 5 wideclient computers. Using TSR system 737 SW to run the to fire panel illuminations once the start fire option is running in project magenta instructor station. The six pack is CPFLight connected to Project Magenta autopilot SW. I will try the following: Update MCP SW Update CP Flight FW for MCP Change six pack settings in TSR system to detect the button push. In your experience is there anything else i could be looking to try regarding FSUIPC? Thank you
  8. Dear Thomas i have sent you a PM. Thank you
  9. Dear Thomas I see the problem. I am using version Is there anyway you would be kind enough to share the updated version with me? Thank you for your help. Best Wishes, Nick
  10. Just to add, the APU discharge light comes on, when I connect the Phidget card to card 7 so I think it is the right one. All others cause a problem on startup where TSR system doesn't like it. Thank you
  11. Hi Thomas, I have set the phidgets ini as you suggest - attached. However the fire panel does not light or respond. I do not understand what information I need to put into the ini for the fire panel to respond to starting a fire in PM instructor station. The gauges in the ini work well. Thank you for any guidance you can provide. KR Phidgets.ini
  12. In addition, do you know what the offset is for the Lower Eicas to display when i press the MIP ENG and SYS buttons. I háve tried all the combinations in the PM manuál, but i think becuase i am using your TSR EICAS software the lower display uses something different. Could it bé that i need to puť a keypress in the wideclient sw. Right now when i open the lower ecias display the instruments are shown for 1 second then hide. I háve APU power. Thank you
  13. Hello Thomas Thank you for your reply. Regarding the fire panel, INST 3 is not in the simulátor anymore. It didnt come with it. INST 2 contains systém 737 and the phidgets card 0-16-16 is connected there. Funny thing is i found card 1 to hold the 330989 but i do not think its correct as the fire panel does not light or work ať all. How can i work out what card Number to label 330989 in the phidgets folder within the systém 737 please. Is there anything else you think could stop it working. It is great if i do not need to use FS2P even though it is nice software. Thank you
  14. Thank you Thomas. I managed to make it work ! Fantastic ! - I now am focused on the WXR SA 1.6 FSUIPC controls do you have any advice on that? - I also have a problem with TOGA switch on the thottles disengaging the AT. - I am trying to connect the Fire Panel (using phidgets 0/16/16) card to FS2Phidgets to be able to control the fire panel via Project Magenta Instructor Station. Is there a more simple way to make this work? Many thanks
  15. I disabled the buttons in the FSUIPC.ini file with // and turned off the system 737 trim funtion but still with the OBCO offset configured in FSUIPC it steps the trim, it is not smooth. Strange thing is, when i configure this offset for the first time sometimes it worked (total of 3 times in over 5 hours). I then restart the sim, and the old problem is back. Thank you
