    Post Majestic Q400

    I am still fairly new to using Sioc, so my question may seem very basic.
    I would like to build a cockpit using the Majestic Q400, Prepar3d, and Sioc/Iocards.
    To use an intermediate application like lekseekon seems to be the logical way to go. But I am having some trouble
    identifying the variables and it's internals. If Someone could please give me a few examples of the linking between level D variables, lekseekon variables and Sioc variables. I have read the documentation and lekseekon manual several times. Just having a hard time putting the pieces together. For example, given the following

    872 S6 T1 ---(which of these would be level D /lekseekon/Sioc variables and an example of how these would be implemented in lekseekon internals)
    0 Left hydraulic Pump commanded ON
    1 Centre hydraulic Pump 1 commanded ON
    2 Centre hydraulic Pump 2 commanded ON
    3 Right hydraulic Pump commanded ON

    If I were to just link the prepar3d or majestic Q400 , Please give an example of how that would look. I can only find examples of linking Sioc variables to the Iocards.
    If I I were to use Simconnect, is there an easy way to do that?
    Sorry for all the questions from a beginner

    Why would Lekseecon work with the MJC Q400? It's a program that writes Level D 767 variables to offsets for SIOC.

    Re: Majestic Q400

    Perhaps I wasn't clear. I understand that lekseekon is built spicifically for the Level D 737. My question is in relation to how Lekseekon works internally so that a I could create a simuliar program adapted to work with the majestic Q400. In other posts, Nico has stated that lekseekon was 90% adaptable to the PMG737NG

    An approach like I've chosen with lekseecon is only possible for aircraft that offer a full digital interface (an SDK or something like that). I doubt that's the case for the Majestic Q400.
    And besides, do note that writing a program like lekseecon requires high level programming skills.

    P.S. I'll delete this thread in a couple of days, while is off topic.
