A320 Glareshield HELP!!!


Recommended Posts

Hello Pete!!!

I'm a new in this world of the aviation, and I want to build a Glareshield panel for the Airbus A320.

I want to used the FSX and Opencockpits IOCards, so I already install the FSUIPC4 and program in SIOC.

The problem is that I cann't find the offsets of the pilot EFIS and copilot EFIS? Do I need an add-on, like project magenta products?

Thanks for your time and help.

Do you mean the FSX default Airbus A321? If so, then I did add offsets for those EFIS functions which were accessible via L:vars -- see 0E00 - 0E1A. If the ones you want aren't there they aren't easily accessed.

The problem is that I cann't find the offsets of the pilot EFIS and copilot EFIS?

Generally speaking, default aircraft panels in FS have always had those EFIS functions local to the gauge -- except of course the "BARO" knob which does have an offset as it is the altimeter setting. The other functions control things peculiar only to the gauges being used so never get as far as the central simulator engine, which is where variables are accessible to programs like FSUIPC. The "L:var" fiddle is just that, a way of messing with a gauges internal values. sometimes that works, sometimes it doesn't.

If you mean an add-on aircraft then I expect they too keep all that stuff internal, but there might be ways with mouse macro or, again, L:var programming. It depends entirely on how it is written. And of course it can get complicated -- take a look at some of the stickies above in this Forum for examples of work-arounds for an assortment of aircraft.

Do I need an add-on, like project magenta products?

If you aim to build a complete cockpit then eventually I think you are likely to decide on a package like that. Maybe Sim-Avionics or Flight Deck Software, or one which does simulate most of the subsystems and instrumentation more accurately and more amenably to hardware interfacing. However, you can do a lot without as others have shown.

Regards

Pete
