FSUIPC: NAV/ADF values not updating in add-on plane


Recommended Posts

Dear all,

 

First of all, I have been reading a lot of posts on this forum which helped me a lot. Thanks for this. Today, I was searching for a specific answer to my problem, but didn't find it. So here I go with my first post.

 

I am making a bendix/king style hardware display. I have several hardware displays, encoders and switches which I am controlling using an FSUIPC/java/arduino combo. Everything is working as it should (finally!) in the standard FSX planes.

 

However, I wanted to test this in some of my favorite plane add-ons: the Just Flight Piper Warrior, and the Carenado Piper Arrow. In the Carenado add-on, if I am incrementing e.g. the NAV1 freq, the fsx variable gets updated, and I am seeing this both on the fsx panel and on my hardware panel.

 

In the Just Flight add-on: incrementing a freq, say the NAV1 will show on my hardware display but not on the FSX panel. However, the sim is using my frequency that I have set using my hardware.

 

E.g.: I start using the just flight warrior. NAV1 is showing (on fsx panel on pc screen) 110.70. My hardware display is showing this freq as well. Now I change this freq on the hardware panel to 109.50. My hardware is showing this on the displays (109.50), but the fsx panel is still showing 110.70. However, using FSinterrogate I can check that fsx is actually using the 109.50 freq and I see my VOR1 acting accordingly.

 

Conclusion: my add-on panel is not updated when I change the fsx variables without turning the on-screen knobs. Is this an issue that can be resolved? Moreover, apparently the Just Flight add-on has this problem, but the Carenado doesn't...

 

Thanks in advance for your answer.

 

Kind regards.

Some aircraft do their own things. I'm afraid you'll need to ask the Just Flight folks for help on this one. If default aircraft are okay, then your system is okay.
