Using FSUIPC to program VRInsight FCU

Recommended Posts

Hi Pete,

Been a long time since i was simming but now back into it!

I did try and find the answer to this but my pea-like brain was hurting!

Simply, i have the new Airbus FCU from VRinsight and i have a couple of buttons i would like to program like Autobrake increase / decrease... i cant seem to find a way to do this?

I checked FSUIPC in FSX and it didnt recognise my hardware... my searching has lead me to ask: in reading appendix 3, do i need to buy and install this VSPE software for virtual com ports? I am using the new VRSim software which effectivley replaced the old Serial FP2 stuff...

Is there and easy way to make the panle and FSUIPC see each other?

Hopefully that is clear but apologies if not!

PS- hope you had a good break!

Cheers

Doug

Doesn't the VRInsight software allow this? I don't know theis VRi unit -- is it the one also known as MCP A? The original MCP-Combi unit and both MCP-A and MCP-B are known to FSUIPC if enabled. But if you want to use the VRInsight software for most things and just re-program some of them it does get a little complicated.

Yes if you want both FSUIPC ro see the device and still let the VRi software handle it. Otherwise only one can see it. But have you checked LINDA? I think that handles VRi devices?

Regards

LINDA doesn't recognise the MCP-A (FCU/Airbus) panel, the only VRi devices LINDA will work with is the original MCP and the MCP2B. So yes the VSPE, FSUIPC and the VRi software are your only options at this time.
