    Transition omg Where???

    Hi, So, I plan my flight with Simbrief, get a nice flightplan, load it in the FMC. So far so good. I enter the SID, in most cases, this works out just fine. But now. I have a STAR, and a runway. When selecting those, often there is a choice for a transition. And there I have a problem. I have a Navigraph subscription, and I stare at the maps, to find the most logical transition for the approach However, until now I can not find, most of the time, these transitions for the STAR on the maps I have... So, I end up selecting a random transition, and look if it makes sense, sometimes ending up with a spaghetti approach and trying again. I must have a blind spot somewhere... Can someone teach me howto find the right transition for an approach?? Thanks!
  3. Hi, CDU in Window. With Keyboard input. Let me know what you think...
  4. Window CDU for IXEG 737-300 View File This script duplicates the Captains CDU in a Window. To activate the Window CDU, move your mouse to the far right on your monitor, and press the button. Al normal functions should be available, except the CDU keyboard. If you check "<Use Keyboard for CDU Input" on the Window CDU however, you can use your computer keyboard to enter data. The backspace key functions as a CLR key. PLEASE NOTE: if "<Use Keyboard for CDU Input" is checked, ALL keyboard input is directed to the CDU, and you can't give normal key commands to the simulator. So, you can't change views, lower the gear by pressing g, etc. Current limitations; Inverse colored data from the CDU is displayed normally, MSG, FAIL and OFST are not duplicated, but only shown on the normal CDU. In theory the Window CDU should work in VR. You can drag the Window CDU to another monitor. PLEASE LET ME KNOW, if there is anything going wrong.

  6. Here is the mock-up gui for Speedy CoPilot attached. No co-pilot script needed however.... Just run the script and put your mouse in the bottom left corner. options-button-menu.zip
  7. BTW, I am building a gui kind of thing, so you can get rid of the awful Flywihtlua menu, and just set your options from the sim window, similar like https://forums.x-plane.org/index.php?/files/file/49946-extended-radio-and-nav-stacks-lua-script-ils-presets/ Little button somewhere, which pops up a windows with settings...
  8. If it works, it works...
  9. This one is also cool Says 1000 to go, if plane is 1000 ft from altitude on mcp. Thats what they do, i heard local thousand2go = load_WAV_file(SCRIPT_DIRECTORY .. "IXEG_Calls_Sounds/thousand2go.wav") local thou2go_played = false dataref("mcpap_a_ann", "ixeg/733/MCP/mcp_a_comm_ann","readonly") dataref("mcpap_b_ann", "ixeg/733/MCP/mcp_b_comm_ann","readonly") dataref("autoalt", "sim/cockpit2/autopilot/altitude_dial_ft","readonly") dataref("cptheight", "sim/cockpit2/gauges/indicators/altitude_ft_pilot","readonly") function Alt2go() if mcpap_a_ann == 1 or mcpap_b_ann == 1 then autoaltb = autoalt - 1020 autoaltt = autoalt + 1020 if (cptheight > autoaltb) and (cptheight < autoaltt) and not thou2go_played then thou2go_played = true autoalt_o = autoalt play_sound(thousand2go) end if thou2go_played and (autoalt ~= autoalt_o) and (math.abs(autoalt-autoalt_o) > 1900) then thou2go_played = false end end end do_often("Alt2go()")
  10. The CDU lines are not visible in my dataref tool. But this post was very helpful
  11. I am proud
  12. It seems that if you read a value from the CDU, there are some non-ascii characters in it. That bit is code to filter them out.
  13. Just take what you want. :) The thing is to grab stuff form the CDU screen. Otherwise you can't access the values from the FMC, afaik.
  14. Ok, in that case https://forums.x-plane.org/index.php?/files/file/49946-extended-radio-and-nav-stacks-lua-script/
  15. Hi, Been busy with LUA and its possibilties, trying out the GUI possiblities and while experimenting I came up with this. It is, or can be, very handy of course. It is easy to just type in the frequencies, and, you can prepare a flight, so you have frequencies you probably encounter available with a click or 2. But, it is not simulating the aircraft anymore, it is adding usability to the flight simulator. Would you use something like this, or is this going too far in making sim life easy? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=79mVGbVPz00
