Re: AM Not Detecting the Position Until an Update

I think for this it should be an LCD screen. Guess that a TFT screen hooked to a Raspi or even a TFT with an Arduino (but with some tinkering with Message port) would do, as the fps is not an issue in this case

Re: AM Not Detecting the Position Until an Update

@Ralph
The above mentioned font could be used as a replacement for the Zibo premium panel as well, for a more accurate display.
Feel free to reuse it if you want

Re: AM Not Detecting the Position Until an Update

I figured that it would be much nicer to have the proper font as well for the display. It appears there is no B737 font available on the Net for this, as some of the digits of the available dotmatrix fonts are incorrectly represented for our purposes, so I ended up by slightly modifying an existing ...

Re: AM Not Detecting the Position Until an Update

This one works with the Zibo, you made me download the mod eventually aha :D The code is commented out, for you to understand the way it works. One of the tricks is to replace visible(xxx,true) by visible(xxxx, is_powered) where is_powered is a Boolean variable tied to the battery state. This variab...

Re: AM Not Detecting the Position Until an Update

Hmm. I figured that the datarefs were standard ones, so i just fired up the stock B737 from Laminar, and could test the code.
I will publish an updated code soon.

Re: AM Not Detecting the Position Until an Update

Try this code instead. My advice is to regroup all the datarefs subscribe of ever changing values in a single dataref_subscribe() like this, only one function handles all the displays at once, and only a change of one of the AC or DC switch position changes what is displayed. Note also that a txt_ad...

Re: AM Not Detecting the Position Until an Update

That’s the way any Dataref/variable subscribe works, the plugin sends changes only. So you’ll have to force read the current status of the Datarefs upon startup and set your displays accordingly. I think that you might use for this in your code at initialization request_callback(your_callback) Where...

Re: Displays for small gauges

There are some TFT that can be directly interfaced with an Arduino Mega. But I am afraid that you will be quite limited for some gages you intend to you use it with. For the 737 Chronos, that can be without (too much) problems, provided you use message Port and a well known library such as Adafruit ...

Re: Licence

Easy: an iPad is way too small to house a six pack with the standard size of instruments, especially when considering and adding the blank space between all the round gauges in a real dashboard. A tactile screen of 17 to 19 inches is definitely the way to go IMHO. This because on most of planes ther...
