Hi Calum,

I think the issue comes from the ini file.

[Auto.FSL_A32X]

x=Lua PMCO  <<<<<< replace x with 1

 

All the rest looks okay to me. You don't need widefs for PMCO to function.

Cheers

Hi Nils,

Excellent. I changed that as you advised and it is working now.

Thank you very much for your help, and for getting back to me so quickly. 

I must say, having just flown a quick circuit with the add on, it reality improves the enjoyment and immersion of the aircraft.

Thanks again!

This is the right place to ask for support, discuss the matter or maybe even give praise to the creators of the PMCO Lua script. Download it from here:      

Short video showcasing PMCO. Good job gents!  

I have finished my next addition to the script. It is the automatic detection of the default (FSLabs) V1 callout setting. I ran into situations where both V1 callouts were played, the one from PMCO

Hi Nils,

Since installing the TCA throttle quadrant and keeping the default indents it came with I find that I am not getting a "FLEX SET" call any longer.

Since nothing else has changed in my setup and the PMCO_Sounds folder is intact I'm guessing it's because the default gates possibly do not now line up with the settings in your PMCO lua file.

My A320ThrustLevers.ini settings are:

[GateControls_0]
DIS_270=6144
Min_TLA_RevMax=-10000
Max_TLA_RevMax=-9500
Min_TLA_RevIdle=-8500
Max_TLA_RevIdle=-6000
Min_TLA_Idle=-5500
Max_TLA_Idle=-3500
Min_TLA_CL=-500
Max_TLA_CL=500
Min_TLA_FLXMCT=4500
Max_TLA_FLXMCT=6000
Min_TLA_TOGA=9000
Max_TLA_TOGA=10000
[GateControls_1]
DIS_270=6144
Min_TLA_RevMax=-10000
Max_TLA_RevMax=-9500
Min_TLA_RevIdle=-8500
Max_TLA_RevIdle=-6000
Min_TLA_Idle=-5500
Max_TLA_Idle=-3500
Min_TLA_CL=-500
Max_TLA_CL=500
Min_TLA_FLXMCT=4500
Max_TLA_FLXMCT=6000
Min_TLA_TOGA=9000
Max_TLA_TOGA=10000

The figures above line up perfectly with the default gates on my TCA throttle quadrant after it has been calibrated, with a bit of leeway either side. I'm guessing that it has something to do with the values in your file but I'm not going to play around with it without your permission and I don't really know enough about it anyway to even try.

Any help would be appreciated, thanks in advance.

I will have a look.

Edit:

If I'm not totally mistaken the script reads the position of the actual thrust lever in the virtual cockpit. To be precise, the position of the left thrust lever.

This means it should be completely independent of the user's hardware setup. Please check you really set the levers in the right detent. One more criteria is that N1 needs to be higher than 80%.

If you have a fsuipc.log I could further investigate.

I have problem with PMCO, it doesn't work. In FSUIPC.LOG i found error :

95110 Aircraft="FSLabs A320X IAE - FSLabs - British Airways (G-EUYE)"
   101719 Starting everything now ...
   101719 *** LUA Error: error loading module 'socket' from file 'socket':
    socket: bad header in precompiled chunk

PMCO latest version downloaded yesterday, FSL A320 v151, P3D v4.5 HF3, FSUIPC5.

What is wrong ?

Thx in advance.

Would you mind attaching the full log? You can delete your credentials in the top section. Thanks.

Was it working at some point or are you new to PMCO?

I'm totally new in PMCO. This is my last log, I started P3D, airport and aircraft has been selected in the main menu, then "OK", when all was loaded, I checked log and found that error. Then I ended P3D session.

Hi Nils,

I've checked a few things with regards to me not getting a FLEX SET call and have included a number of screenshots and my FSUIPC log as requested.

If you look at the attached pdf file you will see screenshots showing the throttle detent settings from the MCDU alongside the cockpits actual throttles and as far as I can tell all of the set positions line up properly with the actual throttle location and the Green Text at the top of the screen seems to confirm this to.

The final page of the pdf shows the actual flight to which the FSUIPC log relates and as you can see the FMA is showing MAN FLX +70 the N1 is greater than 80% and the THR POS in the MCDU shows that the throttle lever would be in the FLX MCT gate, however, no FLEX SET call was made, all other calls were heard as expected.

Now for the slightly weird bit, if I set the flight up in the same way but this time hold it on the brakes or chocks and advance a thrust lever into the FLX MCT gate, once the N1 has got just over 80% I do hear a FLEX SET call, as long as the aircraft is not moving it plays!

Hope this may be of some help but have to admit to being slightly stumped right now.

Thanks,

Steve.

Yeah, will check again. I guess the script timing has problems with your very light aircraft (Vr of 119?) and it's acceleration. The 100 call kills the flex call. This is an edge case.

On top, we don't know exactly what the N1 is as the IAE shows EPR. The easy fix would be to lower the limit to 70 or 75 N1 for the trigger. Though, for most cases the call would come early then. The problem is, I can't read the target thrust to use it for comparison.

Hi Nils,

Just tried exactly the same flight as before but this time loaded the aircraft up a lot more had a ZFW of 62.1 and 5.0 fuel, that gave me a V1 & Vr of 140, unfortunately still no FLEX SET call.

I will try your suggestion tomorrow and see if it makes any difference, I'm sure it's related to the TCA throttle quadrant because when I used my Saitek throttle before it used to work.

Need to find someone with a TCA throttle set up who also uses your PMCO file and see if they have the same problem or if it is just my setup.

Yes, that's weird. But I don't think it's that. I can see in the log, that you were in takeoff phase. For that alone, the thrust lever needs to be either in FLX or TOGA detent. So that's working. Also you said, if you hold the brakes it's working. What was your FLX temp the last time you tried? I still think it's a timing issue reaching N1 80% late.

The logging of my code is not detailed enough to see the reason for the skipping. I will work on that.

I uploaded V2.2 of PMCO, if anyone is interested. Please see the changelog for more details. Thank you.
