    Status Lights PMDG 737NGX and OC cards (sioc)

    Hello everyone,

    I'm using OC cards and wondering if there is a way to read via SDK the status lights and them via SIOC.
    What I would nedd to do that ? Actually Gear, flaps transit leds are working well ( standard offset )

    Thanks in advance

    Francesco

    Yes, that's very well possible:
    Pete Dowson's FSUIPC provides offsets for all status variables of the NGX SDK. In SIOC you can read these FSUIPC offsets.
    How to read from FSUIPC offsets in SIOC is addressed here.

    No problem at all.

    Re: Status Lights PMDG 737NGX and OC cards (sioc)

    I'm trying to do the same thing but I'm not having any luck yet.

    My goal is to have the PMDG 737NGX light up some LEDs on a panel via FSUIPC offsets.

    I have a O/C Usb Expansion Card > Master Card > Outputs Breakout Card > LED

    Using the SIOC test panel, the LED works as expected when output 18 is on/off. So connection wise to the hardware we look good.

    I also have the [SDK] EnableDataBroadcast=1 in the 737NGX_Options.ini file.

    So I thought I'd start simple and get the parking brake light to turn on/off (output 1. The 737NGX offset PDF list the parking brake as:

    Offset: 65A7
    Length: 1
    Date Type: BYTE
    Name: PED_annunParkingBrake
    Notes: Boolean

    So here's the script I'm using (from that lekseecon page):

    var 9010 name pb_state LINK FSUIPC_IN Offset $65A7 Length 1
    {
    IF &pb_state = 0
    {
    &pb_led = 0
    }
    ELSE
    {
    &pb_led = 1
    }
    }

    var 9011 name pb_led Link IOCARD_OUT Output 18 // LED

    And my sioc.ini (this is the OCP4NGX ini file, I just point the config to my script. Should that be ok?)


    [SIOC]
    IOCP_port=8092
    IOCP_timeout=4000
    Minimized=No
    toggle_delay=20

    CONFIG_FILE=.\Parking_Brake_Light.ssi
    [CONFIG_FILE=.\OCP4NGX_MCP-EFIS_PP v1.05 - custom.ssi]

    [IOCARDS MODULE]
    IOCard_disable=No
    IOCard_LPT=No

    [MASTERS]
    MASTER=0,5,1,41
    MASTER=1,4,1,62

    [FSUIPC MODULE]
    FSUipcdisable=No
    FSUipcRefresh=60

    [IOCP CLIENTS MODULES]
    IOCPini_delay= 3000
    IOCPclient0_disable=no
    IOCPclient0_host=localhost
    IOCPclient0_port=8099
    IOCPclient1_disable=yes
    IOCPclient1_host=localhost
    IOCPclient1_port=8092

    [SOUND MODULE]
    Sound_disable=Yes
    Volume=100
    Master 0 is a O/C P&P MCP and 1 is the USB/Master Card.

    I noticed if I open the IOCP Console in SIOC, the two variables are both listed as "1" regardless if the parking brake is on or off. But I also figured if the PB_LED var is 1, it should at least turn the LED on I think.

    So that's why I'm not sure what I'm missing at this point.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks!

    Re: Status Lights PMDG 737NGX and OC cards (sioc)

    Hi,

    If you have assigned the USB card at 1, you should add DEVICE 1 to your Output definitions... (see How to program in SIOC, many basic examples )

    var 9010 name pb_state LINK FSUIPC_IN Offset $65A7 Length 1
    {
    IF &pb_state = 0
    {
    &pb_led = 0
    }
    ELSE
    {
    &pb_led = 1
    }
    }

    var 9011 name pb_led Link IOCARD_OUT Device 1 Output 18 // LED

    regards,
    Nico

    Ah... perfect. That did it. I was thinking needing to specify the device somehow was needed but wasn't sure how to do it. Thanks so much!
