Hello all!

Does anyone know wether the Opencockpits 747/767 FMC is fully compatible with PSX?

The FMC not, but the MCDU very likely. :-)

If you connect the keyboard parallel with the PC keyboard and remap keys, and run a separate PSX client on the PC to drive the screen, it should work. I think others have already done this.

Hi Toto

I've been using the OpenCockpit FMCv3 (actually it's the MCDU but they call it an FMC!) for quite some time now in combination with SIOC & PSXseecon without any problems.

No need for key-remappings and PSX-driven display because PSXseecon takes care of everything more-or-less 'out of the box' (Many thanks to Nico!!)

I've never had any problems with it and am very happy with the price/value ratio. The only thing that bothers me a bit (though I've gotten used to it) is the feel of the keys - the keytops 'wobble' a bit rather than being firmly seated.... Work perfectly though!

Please post your question in the PSXseecon forum.
Note that there already is a thread about the OC V3, might be of interest to you.
