I have just discovered the PSX project, and I am really impressed with what I have seen so far. My question is, would it be possible to implement the 747-400ER Dual Seat Trainer from Flight Deck Solutions with the 747-400 simulated in PSX?

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,

PSX will interface to all kinds of hardware. Flight Deck Solutions sells panels with buttons, switches, and levers, which sound like "input devices." As long as that's the case, then PSX should be able to communicate well with the hardware. The issue is that the software needed to facilitate the communication needs to be written. (And that effort seems to be underway as we speak.)

In general, PSX is extraordinarily friendly to developers, offering easy access to the data needed for networking. Think of PSX as extending it's hand in a friendly way, looking for a handshake. However, PSX can't anticipate the wide variety of hardware that simmers will want to attach, so user creativity will be required to script the software connection. Still, it's probably the single most developer-friendly piece of simulation software ever written -- it was conceived from the very beginning with the idea of making it easy to connect PSX to the wider world.
