OK. Please capture the Spy response to all flap movements 1 through to 30.

Post here like I did above.

I can then compare and sort out the Non Motorised bit differences in the messages from your TQ.

You really need to do the same for any problematic area of control regarding the Opus FSCTQ driver to TQ Device COM link. I only have the Motorised TQ and their (FSC) docs aren't always very clear.
 
I need to know what each message from your TQ is.

Hi Stephen,
they are really very attentive and very quick with your answers.
Unfortunately the program doesn't work.
I am deleting it now.
And wait for one that works.
Sorry and have a nice evening.
Greeting
Ralf

Works perfectly here with the FSC Motorised TQ and should be simple enough to determine why your Non-Motorised TQ version isn't sending the expected COM message bytes. I cannot do this but am willing to assist you.

The protocols are DIFFERENT. It’s as simple as that.

If you want to assist, it’s very simple, I will then add support to interpret your Non Motorised TQ messages.

If not I will simply remove the Non Motorised option and support only the Motorised version.

Makes no difference to me. I’ve only implemented a driver because the FSC one is useless and no good and operating the 737. You can’t even takeoff correctly using the FSC driver.

Good luck to you if you want to stick with that. But seems silly when all you have to do is copy and paste the full Spy messages.

Unless of course your COM Port settings are different. Either case it would be a simple procedure to copy and paste each received flap message sequence. I made sure they were displayed in Spy for this very reason.

Can’t understand why you’d want to fly the 737 using their faulty driver. It doesn’t allow the correct engine run up and TOGA use on takeoff. Nor does it allow the correct use of reversers on landing. The calibration is poorer as well. That’s why I developed my own driver that allows for correct 737 TQ operation during flight.

For now I will remove all support for Non Motorised FSC TQs and grey out the Config option.

You should at the very least double check your COM Port is setup as 19200, None, 8, 1.

Cant see how our FSCTQ driver in OpusFSI v6 would work correctly as that assumes identical protocol used for both Motorised and Non Motorised FSC TQs.

OpusMSFS Beta Versions

After this distraction I will now continue with adding ButtKicker turbulence effects, improving the landing analysis, and making a start on the CPflight MCP/EFIS panel support. I am also investigating if there's anything I can do to assist with camera views.

New OpusMSFS Beta
 
I have posted Beta 1.00.9 (See Announcements). Users will have to check their Config settings after installing the OpusMSFS upgrade as they will all have reverted to defaults.
 
Has anyone used the Landing Analysis yet. If needed the landing grading can be adjusted and the lateral motion factored in with help from users comments and their Landings.log file content.
 
CPflight MCP/EFIS 737 Panels
 
This interface is definitely 'Work in Progress'. I am currently looking into the following,
 
1. Improving the panel and sim initialisation process.
 
2. Allowing changes in the sim to be reflected on the panel. For example, updating the MCP panel heading display when the user synchronises the heading by pressing the heading knob in the sim.

Hi Stephen,

I just tested the new version. Everything seems to be working except Buttkicker Feedback for Flaps and Spoilers. Both are active under the config dialogue and with the test button they do also respond. However when activating them with the A320 or 787 nothing happens. 

You might wanna check the other buttkicker effects too.

Thanks!

Best regards Andi

No but Announcements told everyone to check their settings again, including your BK settings.

Best check your Configure settings to make sure it’s enabled.

I have done all that but I keep getting red boxes at the bottom of the BK control. If I run test they all work but when I start flying they go red again. I ll try a full uninstall and re install to see if that works.

No all is OK.

The Control and User indicators remain Disabled (Red) until the flight is actually loaded then they turn Green.

ButtKicker Control and User Enable / Disable Indicators

At present these two indicators work in unison. If the flight is specified and loaded in MSFS then the SimConnect data is meaningful and both will turn GREEN to indicate Enabled. At all other times, including when the Welcome or Flight screens are displayed both indicators will be RED indicating Disabled (no control possible due to undefined SimConnect data).

The User Enable / Disable is not really meaningful at the moment as I don’t believe MSFS SDK allows any form of Add On Menu allowing users to control the ButtKicker operation. I doubt there will ever be an Add On Menu in the sim so the separate Enable / Disable indicators may combine.

Also at present the BKCTRL program is only activated when the MSFS sim is running and the SimConnect links are established. The BKCTRL program can actually be started manually to aid setting up without FSISERVER or the MSFS sim active, however in this mode there will never be any proper supervised BK control. I may look to activating the BKCTRL program automatically before the SimConnect link is established with the view of helping users set up and test its configuration.

Hello, im having erros with the Opus MSFS client (Ver 1.03.1) on my two side view PCs. It works for a while however when i change attitude / roll quickly then the opus clients crash at different time (MSFS2020 does not crash).  I seem to be running all the right versions of .net. 

I do have P3D on the same machines with Opus6.

Thanks for the detailed report. I will test the client again here, although my second system is in the process of having Win10 reinstalled due to a drive C crash.
 
Please try running the latest Beta Version 1.04.0 and see if the problem persists. Version 1.04 uses the updated SimConnect SDK from MS and Asobo.

I will also be posting OpusMSFS Version 1.04.1 (as a beta or release, not quite sure yet) today which uses the very latest updated MSFS SDK 0.7.1.0 from MS and Asobo.
 
If you could download and try that when its posted, keep an eye on Announcements.
 
Just in case the older SDK has incompatibilities with the newer upgraded SDK (SimConnect).
 
After you upgrade to 1.04.1 (using the new MSFS SDK) run the Live View Tests again, client side followed by server side.

I have posted OpusMSFS Release Version 1.04.1, see Announcements.
 
I was able to test the OpusMSFS FSICLIENT connected to an OpusFSI v6 P3DSERVER program connected to P3Dv5. All worked fine running the Live View Test from the server end.
 
I had the 'Auto Height Adjustment' option enabled in the client and also added a 0.02 'Vertical Axis Offset'.
 
I suspect your problems may have been due to an incompatible MSFS SDK version. The latest release is using the current 0.7.1.0 MSFS SDK so should be OK for compatibility.

OpusMSFS Work In Progress

I am now investigating adding support for Navigraph NavData options on the In-Flight Map.

The NavData source will be identified and loaded via the FSISERVER's Configuration dialog. This will be done in a similar manner to OpusFSI v6 where a Default (out of date) set of NaviGraph NavData will be provided with an option to browse and identify the location of your current subscribed copy of NaviGraph's NavData.

A 'Reload' option will be provided to convert the identified NavData source into quick access CYCLEINFO, AIRWAYS, NAVAIDS, and WAYPOINTS data files. The current Cycle Information will be displayed in the NavData dialog.

I will look to add the following options to the current OpusMSFS In-Flight Map,

Show Airway
Show Aerodromes
Show NavAids
Show Waypoints

The 'Show Airway' option will be associated with a single text box allowing the required airway to be specified. When anabled the specified airway and all associated NavAids and Waypoints will be plotted on the In-Flight Map.

The 'Show Aerodromes' option will be associated with four text boxes and an 'All' checkbox. The 'All' checkbox will allow all known aerodromes to be plotted on the In-Flight Map. The four text boxes will allow up to four aerodrome ICAO codes to be specified for plotting on the map.

Similarly, the 'Show NavAids' and 'Show Waypoints' options will each be associated with an 'All' checkbox and four text boxes, the text boxes allowing up to four NavAids or Waypoints to be specified and plotted on the map.

It is not possible to obtain details of your current flight plan from the simulator via the limited MSFS SDK at the moment, but the above options should allow you to plot the Airways, NavAids, or Waypoints that are relevent to your flight and location.

I downloaded the new SDK and installed the "core components" - exactly the same issues with the 1.04 beta. It lasted a little longer before the crash.

Process: 
uninstalled the 1.03 clients / server
Installed the 1.04 clients and server
Downloaded the SDK
Stopped MSFS 2020
Installed the SDK
Did not reboot
Started the MSFS clients
Started server
started clients

Client test button does not cause a crash. 
Crash only occurs during normal flight mode, just after take off. 
Camera.cfg has been modified to setup the left and right views correctly

Thanks I will setup something to recreate the same thing here. My client system is still being fixed after its disk crash but I can run two sims on my main dev system and try to recreate it.

I will report back.

Regards
Stephen

I have posted OpusMSFS Beta Version 1.04.2, see Announcements.
 
This is linked to the latest MSFS SDK. There is no need to download and install the MSFS SDK as SimConnect is in-built within the MSFS sim. In fact, unless you are using the SDK its best no to install it otherwise you may be forced to keep it updated.
 
For Live View users must ensure all sims are running with flights loaded and ready before running the OpusFSI or OpusMSFS server and client software. Run the server program first then run each client in turn.
 
If your OpusMSFS FSICLIENT program crashes please post the expanded crash report so I can see where the program failed.
 
I have found no errors here but will have a new client system set up in the next week or so.
 
Regards
