Majestic Dash 8
« on: June 01, 2018, 07:31:09 PM »
Is it possible to look at where/how VAM is getting the 'values' it publishes? Understanding the MJC (FDE) operates on the 'outside' of FSX... I mean...

a) unable to detect Dash8 engine start Left/Right... Simacars doesn't write it to the log
b) unable to detect Dash8 taxi light being ON... shows as a penalty - taxiing w/o taxi light ON

A similar error (PMDG Trip7) does not send or acars doesn't catch the taxi light ON for taxi? 

Also... After landing... what are the parameters VAM uses to detect taxi mode?  Reason is... a taxi SPEED penalty while still on the active?  Is there a way to customize this behavior w/o having to mess around with .PHP?  Does that make sense?

Thank you,

Keith

Good day. I am just adding an additional observation regarding running the MJC Dash8.

a) Two recent flights ; LSZH-LOWS and the return leg LOWS-LSZH have resulted in "Altimeter Setting" penalties
b) The WX engine showed 1013/29.92 on the ground at both airports. Both instruments were calibrated/set on the panel accordingly

The default FSX keypress <B> does not work with the MJC Dash8.  The errors showed a setting of 1020.

Is there a workaround planned for the next upgrade?


Cheers,

Keith
