Re: Arduino Serial connection

Hi FaustoP
I am using Arduino for my system. I have designed the pcbs and have had them made. Obviously there is a lot more than set out here, but this works and data is received from prosim OK

in setup()

// START THE SERIAL PORT
Serial.begin(Baudrate);
Serial.setTimeout(5);


in loop() // to get data from prosim in the form xxxx = 1 or xxxx = 0 were xxxx is a 4 digit variable say 5460

.
.
// receive data and lamp status
if (Serial.available()) {// IS there any lamp data from ProSim737 on the USB?
RXvariable = Serial.parseInt(); // Lamp number eg 5460
RXvarValue = Serial.parseInt(); // ON or OFF eg 1
if (RXvariable >= varBase && RXvariable <= varBase + 99) { //is it in range for this card ? (varBase would be 5400 )
//
.

If you would like more info. please PM me :D

Re: When can we expect V3.01 release?

Well, yes, Ver 3.0 is still in beta. When out of beta Version 3.0 will arrive. Then I guess 3.1 bxx will be next :D

Re: Any upgrade in PSU-V3 connection ?

Hi Maurizio
Jean-Marc is correct Prosim Ver 3 is still in beta, so it could be a while yet.

Hi
I was pretty sure that was the case. I'm pleased it is sorted and working now.

Re: Audio Panel Not recognized

Hi Markus
If you are using the "B737 Audio Module P&P.[2M37]" then the description on the OC website indicates a 5volt power supply is required. ;)

Re: Navdata

Hi Jerry
I was having this issue, if you are using the Navigraph FMS Data Manager you just put C:\ProgramData in the mapping for Prosim. This works for me :)

Re: Prosim doesn't retrieve latest AIRAC cycles

Hi all
Yes I was in trouble for a long time until I realised I had to set the path to the "C:/ProgramData" folder and not C:/ProgramData /Prosim-AR/Navdata/ folder, since then of course all is OK. :D

Re: Prosim 737-800 (2019 PBR ) Liveries by Matthew Fitzjohn - Comments and Requests

Hi Matthew
I'm wondering if you can add AIR NIUGINI to your 'todo list of liveries'.

Re: Michael Schultz Youtube channel building 737NG pit

Hi Michael
I have been trying to use the generic TCP driver for some time now, (there is, as you say, virtually no info on it) and I have found many short comings with it. I have posted elsewhere in this forum but with no positive results. I too am using an Arduino as my controller so using the prosim variable names was not really an option, so like you I used my own variable numbers which are easy to code on the Arduino. BUT Prosim won't allow you to set only 1 switch position ie the other set to 'not connected' that is say 1000=1. However it is stranger than that, if I set, say "YAW DAMPER OFF",to 1000 and "YAW DAMPER ON" to 1001, I still have to send 1000=1 or 1001=1 to avoid an error message in the input debugger. Even stranger, is that it dosen't matter if I send 1000=1 or 1000=0 the result is still "YAW DAMPER OFF".
I am however using it and it works but it is messy, receiving is OK ie if I set a variable to 2000 I get 2000=1 or 2000=0.
I use a USB connection via a 'hardware server' PC (which uses serial to TCP modules). I have produced PCBs using an Arduino Nano on board providing 72 switch I/Ps & 64 LED O/Ps.
However I will try out your IOCP solution, thank you for the post I have been following your cockpit build from the beginning. :)
