Re: Help with TAS indication

Hi I understand your frustration, but most of your issues is basically because you didn’t follow the kind advices of Uncle Tony :) According to the wiki for dials functions: https://siminnovations.com/wiki/index.php?title=Dial_add The values sent by the dial_add to the callback function are as follo...

Re: Multiple subscriptions in a single function?

I would add that you could also check wether the BAT BUS is on, to take into account the MASTER is OFF, and in that case the light should not come on even when the test button is depressed. Moreover I think that the test_active variable should be declared first outside of the function itself, so the...

Re: MAX7219 list of available characters that can be displayed.

Corjan Any update on the new characters list available for the the MAX7219? I have at least one user on the French forum that told me he’s unable to display « Std » on his MAX7219 using the latest v4.02. Thought it was already implemented, along with an update of the Wiki of course. Thanks Jacques

Re: What must be redundant in A320 and B737 cockpit?

So to sum it up and take into account the single pilot cockpit configuration, for the A320 i would simply make sure that when pressed, the FD push button activates/deactivates both sides simultaneously (talking about an AM instrument of course). That way you wouldn’t have weird FMA displays such as ...

Re: What must be redundant in A320 and B737 cockpit?

Perfectly correct, even if IRL it is slightly more complicated than that. I will talk about the A320 that I fly for a living. - Flight directors are independent and are driven each by their FMGS side. The behavior is different when only one or both FDs are disengaged - LS only displays the Glide and...

Re: background image with transparent boxes

I will make a demo YT video tomorrow to show the whole process in Skinman. Should take less than 30 seconds I guess. Granted it’s 20 seconds more than Gimp or photoshop 8-) but with the ability to fine tune the shape that will serve as a hole, since the shape is vector based. And of course, Skinman ...

Re: background image with transparent boxes

Hi I advise you to use Skinman, which is perfect for this purpose. Create your background first ( say a black rectangle), then create another (can be of any color) that will be the size, position and shape of the hole you want to create on the first one and place it over the first one. This will be ...

Re: The new AM Collection for FlightFactor Airbus A320

Yes the Uln 2803A is the one I am looking after to do this.
I have ordered those which are conveniently already placed on a board

Surprisingly the OEM Panel are roughly the same price as Sim parts, with the added complexity of interfacing.

With the MSN I even have the former registration of the aircraft it was on an A319 D-AVWB from British Airways. My Main problem was to find what goes where and the pinout diagram....
