Hi,

I responded to this yesterday but looks like all my posts yesterday have gone missing....

Many of the functions on the stock B787 are not currently accessible. There are at least two mods available for the B787, you should try them to see if either have implemented those functions. Otherwise, you can always ask for this to be implemented in the mod.

There is the B787-XE project: https://fs-2020.org/d/184-boeing-787-mod-for-mfs
    https://github.com/lmk02/B787-XE
and the B787-10 Heavy:

Hi.

I have also problems with the stock 747. It seems the EFIS commands are not available. I´m using VRInsight MCP Combo hardware and it does not send any of those commands to game (other commands like heading, radios, etc work well and are sent by the device to game). But remap to any other standard joystick using the available commands from FSUIPC list does not work either. Are they working or is that like in the 787 they are not implemented as you answered in the previous post? See pic for the related commands (all starting with the tag "EFIS" in the list).

 

On the other hand I don´t find in the list any commands for the map modes (the buttons WXR, STA, WPT, APRT, DATA, POS and TERR as seen on the cockpit EFIS panel). Are they available somehow as well?

Cheers

If the standard controls/events don't work, you need to check the available hvars/lvars. The best place to do this is to see what the MobiFlight presets use - see https://hubhop.mobiflight.com/#/list.
You don't have to use the MobiFlight WASM/presets (but you can if you like), but the preset list will show you which lvars/hvars/calculator code to use.

These are also available in the MF preset list. For example, for
    WXR - preset B747_8_BTN_WXR which uses:
                (>H:B747_8_MFD_BTN_WXR) (>H:B747_8_PFD_BTN_WXR) and
    STA - preset B747_8_BTN_STA which uses:
                (>H:B747_8_MFD_BTN_STA) (>H:B747_8_PFD_BTN_STA) and
    etc

You can either use the calculator code directly using lua, or if the calc code is simply activating hvars (as the above) or setting lvars, you could use macros (overloaded to activate multiple hvars).

You can test to see if the calculator code actually works by using the Add-ons->WASM->Execute Calculator Code... menu option.
