Accessories / Multiple Touchscreens
« Last post by emerydc8 on Sat, 25 Mar 2017 02:59 »
I decided to migrate away from my Jetmax 777 shell and build a shell where I can make use of multiple touchscreens so I can access all the switches on the main instrument panel. I am using two Lenovo 23" touchscreens for the MIP, but I discovered that the touch feature doesn't work on any screen other than the one designated as my main screen. Normally, my main screen is the three 39" visuals. I keep my instructor panel in the upper right corner of the visuals where it doesn't block very much.

Has anyone with a Windows operating system figured out how to get the touch feature of both touchscreens to work at the same time? I can only get the left or right MIP screen to work by designating it as my main screen. Preferably, I don't want either touchscreen to be my main screen -- I want to keep my visuals as the main screen. I'm using Windows 7 Pro. Thanks. Jon.

Hangar 7 / Re: Ground elevation jumps on clients
« Last post by Hardy Heinlin on Sat, 25 Mar 2017 02:08 »

I don't have external scenery software so I can't experiment with it directly; I need to reproduce those effects within my "laboratory" and inject elevation data like an external scenery software would do. For this I need to know the exact conditions ...

So, in a reproducible problem situation:

1. What elevation is being injected into the PSX server? *

2. Is the elevation which is being injected into PSX constant? *

3. What would be PSX's elevation at that location if the external scenery software was disconnected? *

4. Does it only happen when PSX's elevation is lower than the external scenery's elevation?

5. Where does it happen? (Copy aircraft latitude/longitude from Instructor map)

6. When it happens, do all PSX clients behave in the same way?

7. Does it only happen when a network connection is in progress or a situation file is being loaded?

* Please refer to the aircraft altitude edit field on the Position page of the PSX server's Instructor screen.

Update: It looks like PSX users are already providing Navigraph with information on how to link Navigraph's moving map feature to PSX. More here:


Accessories / Navigraph will provide a moving map

As has been mentioned on this forum before, Navigraph is updating to Jeppesen charts, and they say on their blog(*) that this will allow moving map functionality. You can apparently see an overlay of the aircraft on the charts. Here's their claim:

3. Thirdly, since Jeppesen charts are generally geo referenced and true-to-scale, we will be able to place an ownship overlay (“moving maps”) on top of the charts, aiding situational awareness during a flight.

Does anyone know how this would work? How would the Navigraph app get data from the simulator?

I've been thinking a little more about this, and I'll be a contrarian to the idea of a moving map. While that seems to be the winner in terms of the wish list, it would be only my second choice.

My first choice would be a moving map that was limited to high-resolution airport diagrams. In other words, a dedicated aid for taxying and parking the aircraft at gates.

Thanks for thinking about these requests!

Is PSXseecon Traffic compatible with X plane?
No... at my website it is clearly stated that it is for Prepar3Dv2.5+ and FSX SP2, is it not?   ;)
There is a small program available to link P3d (&fsx) to ForeFlight using the foreflight program on the Ipad. It works good.

Just as a quick answer, I bought last Christmas a yoke from PFC (Precision Flight Controls). I chose the Saab Column yoke and I am very happy with it (I came from a saitek Cessna Yoke).
I am not an airline pilot, but I bought it following Jon's (emeryDC8 from this forum) recommendations. He owns a PFC 737 column yoke if I am correct and he is a Real Life Boeing Driver ;)
