PMDGDataEventServer for PMDG 737 NGXu
I’m glad to announce the availability of the PMDGDataEventServer for PMDG NGXu Base Package for P3D.
Quote from PMDG site:
The PMDG 737NGXu is a ground-up rebuild that applies nearly a decade of improvements in PMDG’s legendary simulation technology and applies it to our most popular product line. Designed entirely for the Prepar3D v4 simulation platform, PMDG 737Xu offers greatly improved systems simulation, new features, added technology and tons of new capability to provide the ultimate 737 simulation experience.
The SDK added >40 data elements and >200 Events for cockpit builders. This means that the current version of the PMDGDataEventServer for the 737NGX will not work for this new software.
I created a new set of PMDGDataEventServers for this new plane.
Both versions are available.
- Version with SIOC and TCP interface.
- Version for Arduino/Serial/TCP interface.
For Arduino users there are new Data.h and Event.h files available.
Refer to the pages of the PMDG 737NGX PMDGDataEventServer for further details of how to run and operate the programs.
Moving from NGX to NGXu
As PMDG did not change the existing Data and Event mnemonics, a recompile of your Arduino Programs with the new .h files (dataNGXu.h and eventsNGXu.h) will allow a smooth transition from your NGX to the new NGXu. Note that I changed the filenames to reflect the actual plane they are used for.
New search facility
With these new programs I introduce a search facility to search through the Data and Event grids. This will help you in finding the right mnemonic for the data or event you would like to use.
The search will position the grid on the first occurrence of the search argument within the data/event mnemonic grid. A checkbox allows you to set the search case sensitive.
The keyboard down arrow will position the grid on the next row the has the argument.
Special thanks to our friend ‘FlyCivil’ for his comments and testing the programs.
