EFIS 84 help

#1 Post by leversole » Sun Feb 28, 2021 3:59 am

I am looking for a little guidance with the king air efis 84 (or 85). I have done a few simple things in Air manager scripting, but still a newbie. Looking for some direction...I am looking to make the instrument function more like the xPlane version.

The vertical course deviation only appears with an ILS approach, it does not appear for any of the gps approaches, and now I have the GNS750 with visual approaches. The xPlane EFIS show the course deviation for all. How can I add this to the AM gauge?

Thanks
Leslie

You can probably just not show the GS elements whenever the HSI source dataref is set to GPS. This does seem wrong though. Where would the vertical deviation information be communicated to the pilot when flying say an LPV approach.

The code is pretty simple...

what is happening is that when the xPlane shows gps vnav pointer, it moves in xPlane but the subscribed dataref does not change, which is why the AM gauge does not move.

How can I find out what is driving the xPlane EADI so I can subscribe to the correct value?

Thanks

I think this is just a matter of the correct settings in the RealityXP settings menu.

That code has got brackets missing and also it’s not that useful without the rest of the code. I need to see the subscribes.

Used the wonderful dataref tool and found the one I need...
