    no-one here to help?????

    Hiya (me again)

    Have all the experts abandoned this forum I search through old posts and MANY people pop up to answer questions?
    It seem on question askers are here now arggghh

    my latest need to know is

    I have at least got my displays kind of working although I do not think I have done it as it should be .

    All controls are being adjusted in FSX with the mouse for the experiment!

    I looked at other ",dab" files to see what to do
    I also found in the samples folder
    "b737ng_glareshield.ini" & "b737ng.ini"
    but no dab file or fsp.
    I looked in the ini file and made sure my CID's etc tallied with those in the file
    I used another .dab file and .fsp simply overwrote the contents
    Thus :-
    (FSP file)
    D:\Program Files\FSBUSCDK\samples\b737ng_glareshield.dab
    D:\Program Files\FSBUSCDK\samples\b737ng_glareshield.ini

    (DAB FILE)
    'ADF DA 03/2007

    SUB OnBegin
    LoadConfigFile("b737ng_glareshield.ini")
    END SUB
    this gave an error "LoadConfigFile("b737ng_glareshield.ini unknown format"

    So (and I don't know why) I altered the dab file thus
    SUB OnBegin
    LoadConfigFile("b737ng.ini")
    LoadConfigFile("b737ng_glareshield.ini")
    END SUB

    and the fsb file
    D:\Program Files\FSBUSCDK\samples\b737ng_glareshieldtest.dab
    D:\Program Files\FSBUSCDK\samples\b737ng_glareshield.ini
    D:\Program Files\FSBUSCDK\samples\b737ng.ini

    hey presto it kind of works

    The activity lights,and therefore, the digit change lags about 2-3 seconds behind the screen
    also the speed randomly alternates between IAS & Mach when changing the speed rotary
    And the heading display shows 1 less than the screen ????? ie hdg on screen shows 127 my display 128...a;ways 1 behing at 000 it shows 360 on my display.

    any ideas anyone?

    Its very relaxed here, they are probably building and interfacing their own cockpit's. Unfortunately, there isn't an answer to everything on here!

    The thing you need to realise is that you are not guaranteed a reply.
    I have been helped on many occassions by members, on other occassions I do not get a reply to my question but I dont bleat on when I get no replies because I am sure if someone could help me, then they would.
    Looking at your questions, I couldnt help because I have not got the faintest idea what you want. Way out of my field of knowledge.
    This is a hobby, expect nothing and be pleasently surprised (and grateful ) when you get answers.
    Allan.

  5. Thanks AlexJ thanked for this post

    Re: no-one here to help?????

    Oh I realise Its not a right to receive help!

    Its just it seemed to me that I was asking fairly basic questions.

    Definitely questions that anyone running FSBUS would know the answer to!
    I was surprised that I wasn't swarmed with replies is all.

    I don't wish to offend anyone ....just desperately need some guidance.

    Neither am I being lazy I have spent dozens of hours since building the fsbus boards slowly pressing forward by trying just about all permutations. (Blowing numerous chips in the process,,,,,,still not sure how I manged that but hey !)

    Its like me trying to write a short story in an Arabic script without a translator. Even when I get results I do not know whether they are "Kosher"

    Hi John,
    You should also take into account that there are not many FSBUS users.
    Since FSBUS is a German development you could try this German Forum.

    I have no intention of upsetting anyone..!!
    Maybe I posted my inquiries in the wrong section
    would

    General Builder Questions All Aircraft Types be the correct place to ask?
    as it says

    "General Building Discussion and information. Post all your Building inquires Here."

    Thanks Nico

    I have no idea where to try

    I came here originally as it looked from a google search there were lots of fsbus users.

    John,
    I honestly feel your frustration, there is nothing worse than being bogged down with a problem and not finding a solution.
    Nobody accused you of being lazy or not doing research, it was just that your thread had a slight tone as though you were peeved off with mc members for not jumping to your aid.
    There are not that many posting members here, it seems to be the same people all the time and threads are quite sparse.
    I have come to accept that but still get my daily fix and post nonsense pretending that I know what I am talking about.
    I mainly come here to see if Alex has escaped his hotel job and is now selling peanuts on the glamorous Bristol to Weeze 5am run at 35,000 feet.
    Allan.
