Perhaps the release can include a separate version for vAGC and Quickstart.  Iíll make do for now.

Yeah, that's somewhat the plan, do generic checklists as far as possible and then we "derive" Apollo 7 Quickstart and Apollo 7 Virtual AGC checklists from that.

Iíve got the correct switch names but it still doesnít work.

The orange lines in your excel? Automatic is 0 in these lines.

Duh!

Does anyone have a good timeline for Apollo 7 Boost?  It is significantly different than the other flights (S1B vs S5).

First, i would like to say thanks you for the great job in this ChecklistMFD and other part of this wonderfull release.

Normaly, i use the DSKY with the V16N65E code to display the countdown. The problem with that, the simulation rate is affect (FPS). That's very slow after that.


I have a suggestion.


Is it possible to see the current countdown on this MFD, because it gives us an indication of time remaining. I suggest putting the top right of the corresponding group title of checklist (in parenthesis for exemple).

It could be updated each minute. That sould be a good way to not affect simulation rate.

If you have any suggestion, please let me know.

Best regard,

Does anyone have a good timeline for Apollo 7 Boot?  It is significantly different than the other flights (S1B vs S5).

Sorry for the dumb question, but what do you mean with "Boot" here? The launch sequence of the S-1B?

Current mission time (i.e. countdown) is shown by Project Apollo MFD.

Ok, i'm just finish to put the MET (Mission Elapsed Time) in the checklist MFD. you can see it, also, when you perform the INFO or NAV button.

I'd like to have permission to perform my changes. I need a SourceForge login to be able to commit my changes

I put this information in this checklist MFD because it's logical to have it, because all checklist depand on it. Another thing, i use only one external
MFD when i perform my checklist. That's easy to see the current MET and inscrease the simulation rate by R/T key, and stop it in the right moment.

P.S: I use CVS (Tortoise), all the time, in my job to commit my works. I perform a UPDATE-Checkout-Developpment-Commit. I'm working in C++ project. I use WinMerge too, because it's easy to compare the current version
against the develop version.

I agree that this is a useful feature.

I need a SourceForge login to be able to commit my changes

You need to register at SourceForge yourself to get a login. Please post the login here, then I'll grant you CVS write access.

EDIT: I just saw your mail, I added you to the developers, please make sure you re-do the CVS checkout with your SourceForge login as explained here: http://nassp.sf.net/wiki/Introduction_to_CVS

Cheers

I'm close to finished with the default checklist.  I'll post it here this evening (EST).
After that I'm goint to move on to an Apollo 7 specific checklist.
Some thoughts;
I considered making several separate tabs for common procedures;P51, align GDC, P31, etc. etc.
Does anyone have any thoughts on how far to take this?  My thought is if a procedure gets used more than three or four times it ought to have it's own tab.
Can one checklist reference another tab, and once the steps on the second tab are complete, the MFD returns to the first tab? For example, if you were doing a P51, following Checklist MFD, when you got to the end of the procedure, is would send you to the separate "Align GDC to IMU" tab.  Does that work in our current itteration?  If so, how do you reference the other tab?  If not, is it worth the effort to develop & impliment?

Great News! I'm rather busy with real life the next days so it'll take some time until I can have a look.

About your questions: Currently one excel tab is one checklist, that's all. Your ideas are good ones, but at least for the near future there won't be things like "modular checklist parts on tabs to be referenced by other checklists" etc., sorry.

OK, perhaps in the future.
For now it's easy enough to hit ctrl+c and then ctrl+v while writing the checklist.

I'm just finishing to follow the instruction from http://nassp.sourceforge.net/wiki/Introduction_to_CVS

When i'd try to edit 2 files.... i had this problem

Can you help me on this.

I'd remove my firewall before, to make sure that's not a problem

Thanks !


EDIT: I COMMIT MY WORK.... THANKS... I'D REALIZE THAT YOU CAN DO A CVS-EDIT ONLY 1 BY FILE... AND NOT FOR A GROUP OF FILE.

THAT'S WORKING NOW !

P.S: Just to inform, that you can see the MET in the current checklist MFD screen, in the INFO and NAV too.this checklist MFD can be perform in LEM, SATUTN and Crawler too... i'll include theses case about the MET Cool

Ok, it's me again....

i'd just commit a new feature on the MET (Mission Elapsed Time) in the checklist MFD

You can toogle the MET (Show/UnShow) the information. You can find the MFD key MET ou the keyboad L-Shift-M to do that.

Have a fun with this  Very Happy

Checklist file attached.  It still needs the splashdown phase.
I haven't really done any testing past insertion.
Green lines indicate mission specific steps.
Orange are steps that I had problems with.
Yellow are steps I need to check switch names/postions, et.

Please have a look and let me know if there's anything wrong.
