HOW TO KNOW THE COCKPIT PARAMETERS OF THE AV-8B


Recommended Posts

Hello guys,

 

I would like to set a trigger when the zoom of the TGP of the AV-8B has a specific value.

Do you know how I can get the parameter?

 

I tried to use the console to track the states but apparently Eagle dynamics deactivated this option.

 

Thanks

It's not going to be a cockpit parameter, it's going to be a cockpit indication text value.

 

Indicator ID is 1 for left MFD, 2 for the right.

 

Elem Name for the Targeting pod zoom is: tpod_video_zoom

 

Value is: the level of zoom.

 

See attached screenshot for an example. This will send a message to all when the TGP zoom is level 4 on either the left or right MFD.

 

Hope this helps!

Hi Sedlo,

 

Thank you very much. I have tried and it worked perfectly.

Is there any way where I can get a list all the Elem name used in the Harrier?

I tried to find them on the clickabledata file and I couldn't find them.

 

I really appreciate your help.

 

Regards

Hornet

I'm not aware of a list, but if you find one, let me know!

 

I've used witchcraft and trial and error to find these... Check out this link and also watch the attached video: https://forums.eagle.ru/showthread.php?t=235013

 

When you get that set up, the snippet to use to get cockpit indications is: return list_indication (1)

 

The number indicates the device ID, which I find pretty much by trial and error. Plug different values in until you find the device you're interested in.

 

I got lucky with the Harrier because the MFDs were number 1 and 2. Some of them go up past 30.

 

Hope this helps.

Hi Sedlo, thank you again for your help.

I've set everything as it iis in the videos and everything worked fine. The only think is that I was not able to get the List of indications of the MFD 2. That is what I get ( see the picture). How did you managed to get them?

Also just double check the sim in connected and you’re in the plane and it’s not paused. (Active pause is ok)

 

Yes the sim was connected and plane not in pause.

I tried to see the response with return 23 and it replies. Even as you saw in the picture I wrote the same as in the video and worked fine but when I write list_indication (2) it appears the error message on the picture.

What do you get when you write that on your pc?

 

The issue is that I need to know how to perform a trigger when the parameters/switches of the TGPOD SPECIFICALLY the SLAVE switch, the WD/NR and FLIR are in a specific way ( FLIR/zoom 4/ SLAVE / NR ) to perform a trigger in a mission. The ZOOM as you told me it is done and working perfectly! Any idea?

 

Thanks
