Arrow Saitek X52Pro Mfd and Fip how to home

Welcome and thank you for coming on this new and ongoing seminar for the Saitek X52pro and Fip.
Currently we have the X52pro up and running on all Dcs products to this point .


Check it out have fun and remember , as I learn more I will Teach more, Feel free to add your contributions.

The fips will be up an coming soon, I want to get as much out of the X52Pro as I can before I tackle the task of trying to figure my way around making , displaying pictures.

Once again welcome to our new home. Enjoy your visits

EDIT :
after years of tinkering and toiling ( with the help of others) it is too the point that this project is working. Rather than having everyone dig through all of the post to find a particular script I have condensed the current versions here via hyper links.

Keep up the hard work. You guys will get it done, you are very close now.

ED has done some work on the X-52 display, you can see the trail of evidence in their files but I have never seen it work nor is there any documentation for it. I believe it is due to the buggy DirectOutput and them not wanting another support headache. Maybe if you send a private message to some ED devs they can offer some advice or will take an interest in this thread and provide some help to facilitate this.

I have always wished to use the FIP in the DCS series, It is a shame that Saitek has ignored it. If you get this working I will finally buy one as I don't fly enough FSX or X-Plane to justify the cost. I'm sure many will be watching this thread with interest even if they don't post.

Done deal !!!!
Sent a Pm out to Wags with link. Maybe devs can come in and keep an eye on things for us.
Fast track. I have to admit I am totally stoked.
Having Purchased the x-52 3-4 years ago because of the mfd, even though I had a solid X-52 non pro. Now no one is really working on plugins much any more.

Slayer, Thanks for the tip and idea.

O.k I could not leave well enough alone.
I uh ,well you see I uhm just had to ahhh You know uhm.
I made a call to MainPanel:rotorrpm and I assigned the result to my fip.
It kinda works!!!!
Then I added more stuff cuz I got more fips and ... It kinda works.
I need help with bit map headers or something , I get pixels and their moving, so I am pretty sure it is updating the gauges. I just need to straighten them out .
Everything on high, using the tnext function at 2.0, I get 23 fps which is 2 less than normal. I get the "hiccups"time lag which I think that can be cleaned up.
anyhow , HeeeLP !!!!!!

If you have fip/s and want to test , help , annoy , pester, solve or are just nosy here you go.

Woohooo!!!!!!!! Algerad3, you are THE man! :-)

Now will dig my three FIPs out of that dusty corner under my bed! :-)))

I will do my very best to test it (which is kinda challenge for someone who can't tell the difference between "argument" and "function" LOL). I have DCS:World and original BS2 and A10C, and 64-bit W7.

Still need to work on sorting out the bitmap files and aligning them.
But , we are getting somewhere.

O.k We got Lua's every where, Which Lua file are we referrring to?
Saitek Dll goes in to the Dcs bin file of the module you are using.
The 64 bit lua.exe, luac.exe and all that goes into the c:program files (x86) lua file. ( remove the original ones first.)
Reinstall lua for windows .
The tutorial.lua is just an example to show how to get things going.
Use that as a template for your lua export setup.
In reality you should create a new lua file and add a dofile command pointing to the new file from lua export.

If still not clear , tell me lua file you are confused about and we will go from there.

Algerad3, does your DLL allow to assign functions to FIP controls (rotaries and buttons)? If so, what is the syntax to be used? Uf not, may I humbly ask whether you have any plans to fiddle with it?

Well, my friend it does allow us to use the rotaries and buttons , actually I was crashing bs1 with them not to long ago.
As of right now in need to figure a few things out to get them working.
The Author of the dll has opened up a new forum in the name of Saitek for Dcs. check it out. http://forums.chrilith.com/

Hey 82nd, Did you get things sorted out over there?
