hi

is there a way to display the match number on the MCP Zibo because its only show "0":confused:

i use this dataref in Xpuic .cfg to show kts--->Dataref SPDK laminar/B738/autopilot/mcp_speed_dial_kts_mach int
Offset 0x6615 UINT16 1 r $SPDK
this one for mach----> Dataref SPMA sim/cockpit2/autopilot/airspeed_dial_kts_mach float
Offset 0x6666 UINT32 1 rw $SPMA


and this one to show the status mach 1/0---->Dataref MACH sim/cockpit2/autopilot/airspeed_is_mach int
Offset 0x6665 UINT8 1 r $MACH



As all of you know.... I not have experience here....

But i see a logical issue maybe.... The second Codesegement read a FLOAT..... But you assign the Offset you write it as a UINT32 .... So a unsigned INT with 4 Byte.
This make so sense to me..... If it´s a FLOAT then also the Offset should be a Float.

The seccond issue i see is maybe the used Raw Data.... Why do you use the Zibo internal Variable for Knots but the Standard Variable for Mach ?

From outside view (without experience in Xplane and Zibo) i would say all 3 Informations ( Knts, Mach and Status) should be read from Zibo Datarefs !
Good Luck !

ok

i replace UINT32 with float32 its the same result

exact i made a mistake with the second dataref :(

i find that work with Float64 offset

transform $*1000
compare IF Value is bigger then Zero >0 THEN Round($ / 10,0)
precondition if mach status =1

Hi Guys,

I'm so new to this so apologies right now..... I'm trying to setup the Capt Course etc on the MCP and cant find an offset for it so guess that it has to be made custom...1. I don't know which offset to use, 2. I've searched the list that you guys have made so far but don't see it. 3. How in the hell do you learn how to do all this.. My old brain just cant compute all this info. Appreciate anyone's .cfg file of at least a guide to helping me get started. Ive been 2 weeks trying to get a single 7 segment display working with different results from XPLDirect Plugin, SIMVim, and now Mobiflight.. Im not having much luck... Seems a very long road ahead. Thanks in advance for anyone's help...

Hi

Put this in your xpuipc.cfg folder
For the 7seg display
iconNote:

in mobi value type "int" size in bytes "2" for this offset



#MCP Course CAPT
Dataref COCAPT laminar/B738/autopilot/course_pilot int
Offset 0x6500 UINT16 1 r $COCAPT

#MCP Course FO
Dataref COFO laminar/B738/autopilot/course_copilot int
Offset 0x6505 UINT16 1 r $COFO

#MCP Heading Display
Dataref MCPHEADING laminar/B738/autopilot/mcp_hdg_dial int
Offset 0x6503 UINT16 1 r $MCPHEADING


#MCP ALT
Dataref MCPALT laminar/B738/autopilot/mcp_alt_dial int
Offset 0x651B UINT16 1 r $MCPALT
iconNote:

IN MOBI transform put if($<0,$+65536,$)


#MCP VVI
Dataref MCPVVI laminar/B738/autopilot/ap_vvi_pos int
Offset 0x651D UINT16 1 r $MCPVVI

iconNote:

IN Mbi comparaison put if current value =0 , set it to bar space x4, else set it to $


#MCP SPD KTS
Dataref SPDK laminar/B738/autopilot/mcp_speed_dial_kts_mach int
Offset 0x6615 UINT16 1 r $SPDK

after start xplane reload the xpuipc config in menu bar

good luck!

hi
look at the "readme.txt " into the xjoymap directory
you need to instal python interface first.



im tring now to install Xjoymap without succes.. I installed in order:

1.python-3.9.5-amd64 progam succesfully
2. resource/plugin/PhytonIntercace and his content
3. I create a PhytonScript folder inside resource/plugin with xjoymap.ini and PI_xJoyMap.

But in Xplane Phyton is not visualize under plugins and also in plugin admin.

Can you help me?

many thanks

Now all phyton interface (was the bad version on windows) work and script is loaded perfect.
But in the Vcockpit dont happen nothing.
So i think the problem is on input settings:

Command 0x6761 UINT8 1 1 xjoymap/main/mp_lodu_norm _
0 0 xjoymap/main/mp_lodu_norm

the command is this but in mobiflight how to set correctly the encoder?

many thanks

Hi,

I'm still looking for a solution to use mapped functions with xjoymap.
I am doing a test on the lower DU with an encoder.

Given that I solved it with Phyton correctly installed and the phytonscript that is correctly seen by xplane (so I exclude the problem)

From what I read about the xjoymap example file it is the syntax that is wrong. I am using this syntax which appears to be from xuipc (and works fine with other datarefs for both switches and annunciators).

On the xjoymap i have:

;MAIN PANEL DU
Command 0x6755 UINT8 1 1 xjoymap/main/mp_outbd_pfd _
0 0 xjoymap/main/mp_outbd_pfd


but from what i read the sintax will be a short of:


[MAIN PANEL INCREAMENTAL DU]
new_command= ??? (the value of offset?)
dataref=xjoymap/main/mp_outbd_pfd
description=MAIN PANEL INCREAMENTAL DU
increment=1
type=float
repeat=True




Can someone help me?

Hello
i am looking for Offsets fot the EFIS Baro Range and the Efis mode, maybe it is possible to do the Mode Encoder for only UP and DW

Has anyone the Offsets or a idea how to do that ?

Hi,

I set all parameters like above, but in mobiflight I get flightsim value 0-255, if heading in de sim goes to 256 and above the value springs to 0 again..

I understand that is the limitation in 256 byte, but how to solve it?

Hi

From outside view ....
Sounds like a Byte/Word issue ( 8 Bit/16 Bit )

Value is grater then 255 so it can NOT be a 1 Byte Offset ( Cause 1 Byte - 8 Bit - 0-255 Range)


So Check.... The MF Config MUST be a 2 BYte INT ....
And also the Entry in your XPUIPC File must be set as a 2 Byte INT "UINT16 "
Good Luck !

Hi,

first I was also thinking that the size was to small,
but look at te screen, I don't see difference with discription above.:

I dont know anymore how to solve it.

Hi if you use an encoder you dont need to use xjoymap
xjoymap its for simulate a rotary multiposition switch like in the real aircraft !
for an encoder just find the right command in xplane with "dataref editor" plugins.
and write it in xpuipx.cfg .

My aproach to zibo encoders

Xpuipc config file :

iconCode:
# ZIBO ENCODERS

Dataref zHDGVAL laminar/B738/autopilot/mcp_hdg_dial float
Offset 0x6575 FLOAT32 1 rw $zHDGVAL >zHDGVAL @

Dataref zALTVAL laminar/B738/autopilot/mcp_alt_dial float
Offset 0x6585 FLOAT32 2 rw $zALTVAL >zALTVAL @

Dataref zSPEEDVAL laminar/B738/autopilot/mcp_speed_dial_kts_mach float
Offset 0x6595 FLOAT32 1 rw $zSPEEDVAL  >zSPEEDVAL  @


example settings for Heading encoder (this one is special cause it has to change value from 359 to 000 -if we are turning it clockwise - and from 000 to 359 - if we are turning it counterclockwise.



number 1 - if($=0,359,$-1) basically means if current value is 0 set value to 359 else set value to current value - 1.
number 2 -if($<9,359,$-10)
number 3 -if($=359,0,$+1)
number 4 -if($>350,0,$+10)
Hope that helps.
