    TCASII, sounds and display in Glass Cockpits (upload)

    Hi,

    I have uploaded the following files to
    www.projectmagenta.com/latest.html:

    tcassounds.zip
    pmsounds55j.zip
    new abgc and gc... pmrj will follow shortly

    Please unzip tcassounds.zip and place the wav files into the
    /Sounds subfolder.

    One important note... Joe Jurecka (author of SquawkBox)
    popped up after he disappeared for quite a while, pointing
    out that the old ntcas sound was actually from his program -
    I was quite startled, as it had been sent to me by a
    customer and I thought it was his. (all other sounds have a
    legit source).

    In any case, much to my surprise and delight, Joe was so
    kind as to record the new sounds that you find in the zip,
    many thanks go to his very cooperative wife Kim and to Joe
    for his initiative. I would have had to make do with some
    synthetic stuff otherwise.

    This is the initial phase of implementation, by no means is
    this complete yet, the other situations will be added as I
    am adding the conflict situation generator to the Instructor
    Station, so more will follow.

    I also added a new method of handling sound triggering to
    pmSounds via an offset/value, this is being used by TCAS II
    so you should see new entries and a description in the
    soundslist.txt file.

    Please let me know if more information is needed.

    Ciao

    Enrico

    TCASII, sounds and display in Glass Cockpits (uplo

    Enrico-

    Hi. While you're working on this stuff, I thought I would thrown in a
    feature request for the TCAS test mode triggered by a fsuipc offset. What I
    found in one of my manuals:

    Note: TCAS TEST is displayed on the navigation display during
    the test followed by TCAS TEST PASSED or TCAS TEST
    FAILED. This test remains in view for 8 seconds then
    blanks. An aural annunciation sounds at the completion of.

    If you need any further info, please let me know via email. I have a TON of
    documentation on the NG TCAS system.

    Great job!
    Matt

    I will keep my eyes on it, but I am moving on to other stuff
    right now. Delivery of this part isn't due until end of next
    month.

    Hi Enrico,

    Thanks ever so much for this. I have just spent the last hour putting myself
    in harms way (offline) and its brillant. Well done! and thanks for the
    speed bugs for the 767/757 EFIS and CDU control of same!

    Hi Enrico,

    The new TCAS looks very nice.
    Could I bring up an old request of mine when the new tcas is finished?
    I would truly cry for an inbuilt GC option to switch on NDArc only when
    the EICAS TFC (or weather) is on. Possible?

    regards
    Andras

    I am not sure I understand what you mean? It should switch
    to ND Arc automatically? Are you using 8 or 4 positions?

    And why cry?

    Sounds like my 4-year-old son... just his TCAS doesn't
    always work

    No time Toulouse, off to the airport now.

    Hi Enrico,

    Yes indeed. The arc is on when either TFC or weather map is on. Otherwise it

    is not displayed (at least in the 737 it is so).

    "Displayed in APP and VOR modes when the EFIS WXR map switch
    is selected or TCAS TFC switch is selected."

    Have a nice trip!

    regards
    Andras
