FDS to Xplane 11 Conversion - Part 1

Post by Michael_B767_ATP »

Hi Everyone,

What a difference a few days makes.... and MANY hours. :lol:

The following is now up and running in xplane with "ALL" plugins in tact. The Capt. and F/O EFIS panels, the MCP, both CDUs and the MIP.

Work has begun on the fwd overhead and with any luck will be finished soon. Then it's on to the aft ovrhd and pedestal to finish it all off.

OH YEAH BABY!

fwd ovrhd

Hi,

I missed a few buttons while showing off the latest update to XP11, those buttons do work.... With that said, everything will be working with the deck as long as it works inside the zibo mod and the physical switch/annunciator is connected.

Right now we just finished working on the fwd overhead annunciations. Up next all the switches, then I'll get a video up of the fwd overhead.

That will leave the aft ovrhd and pedestal to finish.

She is finally getting there, is there a runway at the end of this work? :D

Hi,

Quick update. I just finished working out all the buttons and annunciators for the rest of the boards. Every switch, button, rotary and light have been numbered. That was rough... :)

Need a break, been pushing WAY to hard... Don't want to end up in the er. I'm hoping that button/switch work on the fwd overhead starts tomorrow.

hurting and loving every minute of it! hahahaha

Hi Everyone,

The FWD OVRHD panel is almost done, I think one more marathon session should do it. Then I'll get some video online...

Getting to the point where the bulk of the conversion is just about done. :D

Hi,

We ran into some issues with the AC/DC and LAND/FLT ALT displays, took longer to figure out than anticipated... But they are good to go!

All the major work for the overhead panel is done, all that remains are a few switches and some push buttons.

Should have a video up within a day or two showing a fully working Fwd Overhead.
