X52pro mfd no longer useless!!!!!!

Recommended Posts

Hey, if you have an X52Pro, I have news.

I have made some progress with my set up you might like.

Bad news is I am still learning and Blackshark 1 is my learning grounds.

If you still have black shark 1 and an X52Pro try this:

Make sure you have Lua for windows(free)installed.

Get this Dll from here http://super-hornet.com/download/

then save you Export.lua and replace with this one.

I am still working on it ,but progress is good and I just want to share and encourage.

I am also working on the Saitek flight instrument panel, It's more complicated or I am making it so.

A big shout out to Chillrith for making the Saitek for lua DLL.

Peace out:smartass:

Export.lua

I forgot something.

 

I forgot to mention that this script requires the Saitek fip drivers installed.

Even if you only have the X52Pro. It includes the new directoutput dll and works for both the X52pro and the fip.

 

Also , it may be something I am doing wrong but sometimes directouput freezes. Sim still runs ,only mfd freezes.

If some of the numbers and names get mangled don't freak out.

The drivers are a bit screwy for the 64 bit machines. It has been pointed out in the Saitek forums.

 

More screwball happiness......

It enables the mfd to display data from the simulator. Currently I have it displaying Radar altidude, Baro altitude, Indicated airspeed.left and right fuel quantity (in percentages ) Rotor rpm (in percentages) Rotor Pitch (%)

Engine rpm (%)

 

Give me a minute and I will put up pictures.

That's great news. Thanks Algerad3.

You've mentioned BS1. How about BS2 or BS2W?

o.k first off I sent pictures last night and they are not showing up.

 

I am sure I can get it set up for blackshark 2 and the rest of the sims , just need to figure a few things out. Blackshark 2 does not work the same as 1.

give me a few days and I will have something .

 

My goal is to get a few things working and then put together a quick tutorial on how to make your own set up.

Here is a pic of both radar and baro alti.

The pic above was of the rotor rpm and pitch as a %.

I should mention that updating before next frame kinda distorts the numbers

I need to set it on a slower pace.

here I am showing engine rpms, ler is left engine rpm and rer is right engine rpm.

Can you guess which engine just got shot to Sh1t?

 

My next step is to incorporate buttons into the mix, I want to display radio frequencies and then change them using the scroll wheel, after that I will get the lights to function per conditions.

Once I am more familiar with what I am doing , I will get things working for Shark 2, Warthog and p51.

 

Then it will be about the flight instrument panels for mfds and gauges.

I would like to use this panel to display the nav and com radio freqs while in mode 3(blue), the counter measures panel in mode 2(purple) and dms info in mode 3(red). Would this be possible? I've attached a pic I found on the net that someone made to display the nav and com radio info. :)

If the OP can translate his work from BS1 to DCS World then it just might be. The FSX stuff comes from Saitek, for any other sim you are on your own.

Actually , I was looking for ideas to display. I am not sure if I can get things to change by modes but I will look into it.

Right now I have to figure out how to get the dll. to function in Black Shark 2.

 

Now that I think of it , let me see what I can do with dcs world , maybe better luck.

Will report back soon.

O.k , It seems that the new lua dll for black shark 2, a-10 and dcs world is either missing a needed library. It does not allow the saitek dll to function as it does in blackshark 1 . I will have to find a way around that little bugger.

So, it may take a little while until I figure that out , when I do , it should be smooth sailing .

In case you guys didn't see it theres an X52Pro script using DirectOutput already in the game files (DCS World\Scripts\X52pro ) From what I can tell it just is an example and changes the fire button red. I tinkered with it a long time ago but it's a bit beyond my .lua skills.

I am afraid that they (ED) commented out a portion of the code because it caused frequent crashes. Also the dll I am using provides access to both the Flight Instrument panel and the X52Pro.

 

I keep getting "not a valid win 32 application" error.

Any chance that anyone can tell me what is different between the lua files in Blackshark 1 and all the new modules ( blackshark2, A-10,P-51, Dcs world)? File sizes have changed and some modules are new.

Or maybe can I start a new instance lua 5.1 from Export.lua.

I am trying to keep it simple , But I might have to create something from the ground up(way above my current level, but I can't find the strength to quit book.gif ).

Time for me to go to schooling, I figured out why it (saitek dll ) work. The Blackshark 1 lua .exe and associated files are 32 bit while all the other modules were converted to 64 bit. That means I will have to create an independent program to open lua for windows (32 bit) in another thread / core while the Dcs Lua (64 bit) operates separately. YEA Me !!!!!!!

I would use those MFD functions with my Saitek X52 Pro, if they would work properly...

 

so, you definitely have our interest..

Thanks. I noticed that I spelled your handle wrong in a previous post.

My apologies.

I need a little time to sort things out and see if this works. Currently I get a " not a valid win 32 program" or whatever error with the new dll in both Black shark 1 and 2.

as stated earlier the original dll plays nicely with black shark 1 and lua for windows is not needed. I will post more as time permits.

once again thanks.
