    Buzzer horn

    Using PM SYS and CP FLIGHT MIP board, when running the Buzzer horn test in CP flight software it buzzes but for the rest it is always silent, is this something that need to be implemented from within PM System?

    the cpflight board is not listening to FSUIPC for this, but expects this command from PM.

    The command is E0MIPHORNON to enable the buzzer and E0MIPHORNOFF to disable the buzzer. PM has to send this command to drive the buzzer.

    Not sure if its allready implemented in PM.

    Hello,

    The buzzer does not work with pmsystems. CPflight MIP737 does not use offsets to work. Just only commands that PMsystems knows. So it has to be by programmed by projectmagenta.

    Roger that, would be nice if the good folks at PM could confimr this is on their list of things to implement. Thomas/Jonathan you both read these posts, so any feedback?

    Cheers

    Hi

    I think we already answered this via support - but if not, there is very little point in this buzzer. All 737 warnings are different. We provide the free pmSounds software that covers all the aural warnings on the 737. Just to have a one off buzzer makes really no logical sense (to me at least). The next question would be which warning should this be triggered by? It is a bit of an open ended question - what one person wants another would not and so on. I think it is far better to focus on pmSounds for this type of thing.

    Regards

    I just want to revisit this..

    Last night is was hapily flying on cruise altitude then one of the engines totally failed.
    there was no indication lighting up on the master warning at all and also no aural indication as to anything going wrong..

    looking at the sound files in PM souds there are actually no warning sounds at all for fire or bells or engine failure so how can we let PM sounds manage this?

    also should the master caution lights not come alive in this kind of situation?

    Confused...
    Peter

    Hi,

    At pmsysxxx.lgc insert the following line

    If Eng1Fail or Eng2Fail
    sixpackeng = 1
    sixpackcaution = 1


    Another solutions is to find the bellow line
    'sixpackeng = 0 and change it to the bellow
    sixpackeng = Eng1Fail or Eng2fail

    do not change both. I think alternative solution is better. try one of the two and check the most suitable for you.
