Good news Jack.

I succeeded to download all 3 files (zip, jar & pdf) on my mom computer (entered as a guest, didn't recognized me as an owner).

Alex, do you still have a problem?

Hi Avi,
Looks like an internet issue as I now have all files.... It was very slow to respond but several sites were today so maybe a DoS attack somewhere....

Hi,

I'm releasing version V1.12 of CMC-PSX.
First of all, the "silly" things in the new version:

• Optional connection to the Router canceled due to Jeroen's decision not to support it anymore.
• Packs in High Flow (can be seen in the Input Monitoring function and the ECS report) when (new conditions) vertical speed < -400 fpm, any recirculation fan is off (switch or power is off), PTCs off or cargo fire conditions exist.
• Ground Tests, MCP test: when not LCD MCP, there is a delay during FCC auto set (mechanical move).
• CMC-PSX now clears any color setting from the FMC (or from PSX).

Now the important stuff:
• A Snake game was implemented. To start, type SNAKE into the scratch pad (no matter which page in CMC-PSX is displayed), or, for the lazy ones (I mean myself) just S and press EXEC. Use keys 2, 4, 6 & 8 to control the direction. Pressing EXEC (even in the middle of the game, not only after a failure), will start a new one. Press CLR to end the game and return to the previous page. The game starts with a 500ms delay between moves and accelerates by 10ms with every piece up to length 30 and 5ms above. Length record is saved in the ini file.
Inspired by Steve Browny from this thread

To install the new version just download the new version (jar file) and override the old one.

Hello Avi,

Thank you very much for your work!

Is there a way to get the CMC: EICAS Maintenance page Display with the full details?
For the moment "Display" shows the standard EICAS pages for the respective system.

Thank you,
Best Regards,

Hardy Heinlin

Hello,

this is a question for me actually :-)

I'm sorry, the EICAS graphics cannot be controlled by add-ons. It's technically impossible to inject any graphics.

Hi,

As Hardy said, I can't do anything in the EICAS displays, BUT, for each page you can print a report (under REPORT/PRINTER) and this one does try to simulate the maintenance pages as much as I can.
The Gear report is simulated 100%
The Electrical report is less as I don't have the Load values.
The Flight Controls page shows the structure of the maintenance report but the numbers are not 100% accurate and so on.
