Hallo,

Eine Frage zu dem oben angeführten Script. Habe dies so übernommen und auf einige Werte von mir abgeändert. Funktioniert perfekt. Jedoch jegliche weitere Lvar die ich hinzufüge funktionieren nicht mehr. Weiß aber nicht warum. Könnte es eventuell mit den Byte Werten zusammenhängen. Wie finde ich heraus, welchen Wert ich verwenden muss. In der Lvar Liste der A2A stehen nur die Lvars aber sonst keine Informationen. Hier noch mein Code, der soweit funktioniert.

iconCode:
local UB = {r=ipc.readUB,w=ipc.writeUB} -- 1 Byte Int
local UW = {r=ipc.readUW,w=ipc.writeUW} -- 2 Byte Int
local UD = {r=ipc.readUD,w=ipc.writeUD} -- 4 Byte Int
local FLT = {r=ipc.readFLT,w=ipc.writeFLT} -- 4 Byte Float
local DBL = {r=ipc.readDBL,w=ipc.writeDBL} -- 8 Byte Float
local STR = {r=ipc.readSTR,w=ipc.writeSTR} -- String

local EN1 = "66FF" -- master offset enable

local R = 0
local W = 1

--[[
	Every entry in lvar_list corresponds to one offset.
	How to build an entry:
	{"offset", mode, {enable_switches}, {lvars}}
	- offset = fsuipc offset (between 0x66C0 and 0x66FF)
	- mode is either R or W. R means only read from lvar
	and W means only write to lvar. (e.g. an LED displaying
	the flaps status is R. A switch that extends the gear
	is W.)
	- enable_switches = list of offsets which all have to
	be set to 1 otherwise the line gets ignored. This is useful
	for shared cockpit so that if you are not in charge of the
	buttons your switches won't override the switches of the 
	other pilot.
	-- lvars = list of lvars that get the same value written to.
	You should only use one lvar when mode=R.
]]
local lvar_list = {
    {"66D1", W, {}, UB, { "Panellightknob" }},
    {"66D3", R, {}, UB, { "OILPRESSLIGHT" }},
    {"66D4", R, {}, UB, { "VOLTSLIGHT" }},
    {"66D5", R, {}, UB, { "VACLIGHT" }},
    {"66D6", R, {}, UB, { "FUELLIGHT" }},
--Weitere Einträge funktionieren nicht mehr ???
}

-- set this to true if you want to force your own switch positions on start
local initialized = false

while true do
	for _,v in pairs(lvar_list) do
		local offset = v[1]
		local mode = v[2]
		local enable_offsets = v[3]
		local offset_type = v[4]
		local lvars = v[5]
			
		-- check all enable switches are set
		local enabled = true
		for _, enable_offset in pairs(enable_offsets) do
			local val = ipc.readUB(enable_offset)
			if val == 0 then
				enabled = false
			end
		end
		
		if enabled == true then -- skip line if disabled
			if initialized == true and mode == W then -- write mode			
				-- read offset
				local offset_val = offset_type.r(offset)
				
				-- update lvars
				for _, lvar in pairs(lvars) do
					ipc.writeLvar(lvar, offset_val)
				end
			else -- read mode
				-- read lvars
				local lvar_val = ipc.readLvar(lvars[1])
				
				-- update offset
				offset_type.w(offset, lvar_val)
			end
		end
	end
	initialized = true
end

Hi there,

I have just started on the CRJ, any chance you can send an example of the LED out lua script you made?

cheers

Guys working on qw787 lua scripts how to programm lvar with encoder I don't have any idea how to do that. Will be there simple tutorial how to use lua in mobiflight since it's added at 7.5 version

The Lua PlugIn is just a "transmitter" that can Start/Stop Lua Cripts or Macros.

so you can not include Lua scripts or so in Mobiflight itself. Those scripts must be written/saved and included in FSUIPC like in the past....
The "Lua Plugin" is just a plattform you can "start/Stop" a script or to fire a single Macro .

Without that it is needed to controll that things by a FSUIPC Key/Joybutton binding.

A Tutorial was never done by the guy who write this PlugIn. The only stuff we got a.t.m. is this.... https://www.mobiflight.com/forum/message/10232.html
Good Luck !

As we say here in Sweden, better late than never! Here comes a little explanation of how I was able to read the AP altitude of my Aerosoft A320, and set it using an encoder. Remember that I'm a total newbie in this particular area and I'm still learning. This step was the first in my project to build some panels for the A320 and that panel is still a work in progress.

The L:Var for that one is AB_AP_ALT_Select. Here is the LUA script I used to "assign" that L:Var to an offset:

iconCode:
first = true

while true do
    if first then
        initialALTVal = ipc.readLvar("L:AB_AP_ALT_Select")
        ipc.writeUD(0x66C0, initialALTVal)
        first = false
    else
        currentALTVal = ipc.readUD(0x66C0)
        ipc.writeLvar("L:AB_AP_ALT_Select", currentALTVal)
    end
end


The file is saved in <FSX root folder>\Modules, I named it a320_test.lua. The offset (0x66C0) is the first in the range that FSUIPC have dedicated for us to use for whatever we like.

One important thing I've learned about L:Vars and offsets is that L:Vars contains the value that is present in the simulator and the offset contains the value that is present on your panel. In this case, reading the L:Var AB_AP_ALT_Select will give you the altitude displayed in the "cockpit". The first time the loop is executed this value is written to the offset 0x66C0, it's like "assigning" that offset to the L:Var and sync the "cockpit" with your panel. The rest of the loop will then only read the value from the panel and write that to the L:Var.

Now, in order for this lua script to be executed at all you can assign it to a key press combination as explained by jumpin84, or you can execute it automatically whenever you start a flight with the A320/321. The latter is done by writing another lua script and save it in the Modules folder as Ipcready.lua:

iconCode:
if ipc.readSTR(0x3D00, 10) == "Airbus A32" then
	ipc.runlua("Lua:a320_test")
end


To show the altitude in MobiFlight you assign a display to the offset that you've chosen and to set the altitude you assign an encoder to the same offset.

I hope this make sense?



Hi, I'm trying to make a FCU for my FSLABS A321. I'm in trouble with the altitude indicator. I made the lua script as described but, doesn't work.

I've already tested the arduino and 7 Segments display with an other aircraft (P3D standard aircraft and pmdg) and it works well.
Can you please guys give me an hand?
Thanks

Hallo,

Eine Frage zu dem oben angeführten Script. Habe dies so übernommen und auf einige Werte von mir abgeändert. Funktioniert perfekt. Jedoch jegliche weitere Lvar die ich hinzufüge funktionieren nicht mehr. Weiß aber nicht warum. Könnte es eventuell mit den Byte Werten zusammenhängen. Wie finde ich heraus, welchen Wert ich verwenden muss. In der Lvar Liste der A2A stehen nur die Lvars aber sonst keine Informationen. Hier noch mein Code, der soweit funktioniert.

iconCode:
local UB = {r=ipc.readUB,w=ipc.writeUB} -- 1 Byte Int
local UW = {r=ipc.readUW,w=ipc.writeUW} -- 2 Byte Int
local UD = {r=ipc.readUD,w=ipc.writeUD} -- 4 Byte Int
local FLT = {r=ipc.readFLT,w=ipc.writeFLT} -- 4 Byte Float
local DBL = {r=ipc.readDBL,w=ipc.writeDBL} -- 8 Byte Float
local STR = {r=ipc.readSTR,w=ipc.writeSTR} -- String

local EN1 = "66FF" -- master offset enable

local R = 0
local W = 1

--[[
	Every entry in lvar_list corresponds to one offset.
	How to build an entry:
	{"offset", mode, {enable_switches}, {lvars}}
	- offset = fsuipc offset (between 0x66C0 and 0x66FF)
	- mode is either R or W. R means only read from lvar
	and W means only write to lvar. (e.g. an LED displaying
	the flaps status is R. A switch that extends the gear
	is W.)
	- enable_switches = list of offsets which all have to
	be set to 1 otherwise the line gets ignored. This is useful
	for shared cockpit so that if you are not in charge of the
	buttons your switches won't override the switches of the 
	other pilot.
	-- lvars = list of lvars that get the same value written to.
	You should only use one lvar when mode=R.
]]
local lvar_list = {
    {"66D1", W, {}, UB, { "Panellightknob" }},
    {"66D3", R, {}, UB, { "OILPRESSLIGHT" }},
    {"66D4", R, {}, UB, { "VOLTSLIGHT" }},
    {"66D5", R, {}, UB, { "VACLIGHT" }},
    {"66D6", R, {}, UB, { "FUELLIGHT" }},
--Weitere Einträge funktionieren nicht mehr ???
}

-- set this to true if you want to force your own switch positions on start
local initialized = false

while true do
	for _,v in pairs(lvar_list) do
		local offset = v[1]
		local mode = v[2]
		local enable_offsets = v[3]
		local offset_type = v[4]
		local lvars = v[5]
			
		-- check all enable switches are set
		local enabled = true
		for _, enable_offset in pairs(enable_offsets) do
			local val = ipc.readUB(enable_offset)
			if val == 0 then
				enabled = false
			end
		end
		
		if enabled == true then -- skip line if disabled
			if initialized == true and mode == W then -- write mode			
				-- read offset
				local offset_val = offset_type.r(offset)
				
				-- update lvars
				for _, lvar in pairs(lvars) do
					ipc.writeLvar(lvar, offset_val)
				end
			else -- read mode
				-- read lvars
				local lvar_val = ipc.readLvar(lvars[1])
				
				-- update offset
				offset_type.w(offset, lvar_val)
			end
		end
	end
	initialized = true
end

Benötigen würde ich noch die Buttons für HDG Hold, ALT Hold, usw. vom Autopiloten und die Buttons für Com1, Com2, NAV1, NAV2, BOTH, MKR, ADF, usw.

Wenn jemand eine Idee hat wäre ich froh. Vielen Dank
