FSUIPC 7 and Goflight Modules?

I'm not very computer savvy, thus my question.  Can FSUIPC 7 be used to install and configure Goflight modules in MSFS 2020?  I have pretty much the full set, with the exception of the MCP,

If you used them before with FSUIPC then the same support is there with FSUIPC7 -- though untested as yet (I do not have any Goflight units).  It is a Beta release and you use it on the understanding that it may or may not work and will hopefully provide feedback on your findings.

If, on the other hand, you used these units with GoFlight software, then it is maybe less ikely at this stage, but you need to ask GoFlight themselves.

Thank you John.

I hadn't installed any Goflight modules in a prior sim, but based on your experience, it sounds like they should work with version 7 in MSFS 2020.

Sorry for the stupid question, but where do I find the GFDev64.dll file, and once found, do I simply drag it into the FSUIPC7 folder?

Regards,

Brian

I have a few GF devices (GFP8's, GFT8's & GFR48's) and they work just fine with the GFDev64.dll and FSUIPC7.

John,

I am an old type cobol programmer and I am struggling to understand Lua programming. I try to decode the example in the documentation gfdDisplay.lua, but with difficulties.

AS I have a RP48 unit, would you be so kind to sent me the lua dealing with this unit as a practical  example.

I am startiing to understand using the debug mode.

Thank you in  advance if you can help me.

Kind regards,

Charles

Hi Charles,

sorry, I don't think I currently have any lua scripts I use with my RP48s. I have them connected to my development machine (not my flight rig) and use them for assigning controls during development/testing.

However, what is you issue? The RP48 is just a switch box (no display, apart from the LEDs), and you can just assign in buttons & switches as any other device. Similarly, in lua, you can use as you would any other device (using the device number/letter and button number). For example, to detect a button press in lua, you would use the event.button function, giving the joystick number/letter and button number as arguments, as well as the function to be called when the button is pressed.

I've not looked into controlling the LEDs, if thats what you are looking for.

Hello John,

Thank you for your answer.

I would like to assign buttons, switches and rotaries using FSUIPC7 assignment, for GFMCPPRO, GFMCP, GF46 82 units), GFRP48 and develop one or more lua scripts to display  the coresponding values and LED's.

I am experimenting with gfdDisplay.lua provided in the documentation and have found that my second GF46 remains displaying 1234...althouh the last executed statement is gfdBlankAll().

Thank you again for your help,

Charles

.but only 7 are working wit  MSFS2020 using GIT

Sorry, what is 'GIT'?

Is this an issue with MSFS and not FSUIPC7? i.e. if  you run FSUIPC7 without MSFS, are all your devices detectable and useable? If so, I think you need to raise a zendesk ticket with MSFS.

I use 6 GF devices without issue.

GIT is the Go-flight Interface Tool by PollyPot Software https://www.pollypotsoftware.org.uk/

It can read and write to Go-Flight modules.

I don't have any GF devices with displays, and have not used the lua GF library, sorry.

I just tried the gfdDisplay.lua plugin though. It doesn't illuminate the leds on my RP48s. Not sure why.

So john, any progress on turning on leds on goflight modules ?

Thanks

Please refer to the Lua Library document supplied with FSUIPC7. You'll find details of the gfd.SetLightgfd.SetLights, and gfd.ClearLight functions provided in the comprehensive GoFlight library.

I haven't and wasn't planning on looking into this. But, as Pete says, please look at the GoFlight library.
