I've removed most of the unused switches in the code (left over from the old panel), and done a preliminary wiring of the FDAI power switch: you now need to turn them on before they'll operate.

SC CONT, CMC MODE, SPS GMBL MOTORS and most of switches on this row are not working (.05G switch too...)


They work. You can hear it and seet it Very Happy Just make sure you use the latest dll's. I would suggest to do a CVS update, not using the beta dll's. I did a CVS update and compiled the latest dll's just about 1 minute ago (and I worked on the code too the last hour). All switches of panel 1 working perfect Wink

Sounds good movieman Happy I just finished my work on CSM main panel 2. All switches and rotaries should work without any probs now Very Happy

Again, still missing things from top to bottom (not much on panel 2 Wink ) :

- SM RCS indicators

HIGH GAIN ANTENNA:

- PITCH, S BAND ANT and YAW INDICATOR

That's all Very Happy

By the way, is it possible in Orbiter to simulate yawing and pitching of the HGA?

Tonight I'm going to finish panel 3 (and all the electrics switches)...

Thanks Moonwalker and Movieman, you are doing a great job! Happy Happy

I don't understand the new function of CSM/LM SEP. CSM SEP 2 has to leave docking probe in place, hasn't it?

No, both CSM/LM FINAL SEP 1/2 switches separate the LM from the CSM irreversibly including the docking probe. To use the docking probe to dock and undock reversibly look here: http://www.ibiblio.org/mscorbit/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=355 I'll add more comprehensive instructions to the checklist soon, and of course please don't hesitate to ask. Happy

Quote from: Christophe
RCS is not working when SM RCS He switches are on the OPEN position (with tb gray). I think it's unrealistic.

Yes, the usage of the RCS is not historically correct at all, but for my part it's OK if we fix that after next release. But if someone wants to do it before... Wink

BTW: Is Microsoft C++ 2005 working for you meanwhile? I think movieman did a lot of changes of the code for that.

Cheers

No it still doesn't work. Still numbers of errors and warnings.

Thank you for explanation of haw CSM SEP is working.

Can you post the current errors? We'll change the code then!

Oh yeah, I very hope so. The RCS and SPS are the most important systems next to the ECS, electricals and DSKY to be simulated! Wink

I just committed a few bugfixes of the new features, two questions/remarks:

When the FDAI is turned off, in real Apollo a red "flag-like" OFF indicator was shown at the edge of the FDAI, I don't know if you know what I mean, is it possible to do a bitmap for that?

... and I'm getting main bus undervolt alarms all the time now???  Shocked

I have a suspicion that the heaters are still sucking too much power from the bus. I reduced the power usage of some of the heaters in the config file.

Sure Very Happy In general aviation you'll find the same "off" flags on the ADI's (attitude driection indicators) and also on the ADI's of the space shuttle Wink

I'll do the off flag of course. Great that you want to simulate this ^^

BTW, the main buses are now hard-wired to the batteries after SM seperation. That will do as a workaround until we can wire up the bus switches properly.

One thing I've noticed is that we can release the parachutes in space: I'm not sure whether that was really possibly on a real CM, or whether there was some failsafe which prevented it (since, otherwise, pressing one switch would be lethal for the crew)...

Hi Tschachim. sorry to come back again with that trouble. I'm afraid I bother all of you with my visual 2005 IDE. But as you asked for me, I would be very pleased to post the output log when trying to compile Panel SDK Project.
But even that I'm unable to do it!
Here is the message I have coming from the forum:

Great Movieman Very Happy I finished my programming work on panel 3, and on the whole main panel Very Happy I only have to do some small bitmaps now (like FDAI off flag, missing window covers etc.). There are exactly 10 switches on panel 3 which I didn't set up because they are talkback indicator related and I (god damn Confused ) didn't figure out the corresponding code. So I don't want to do a mistake an decided to leave the 10 talback related switches to you guys. You'll need to set them up when programming the functions for it. I'll list the switches below.

Missing things on panel 3 again from top to bottom:

- SPS PRPLNT TANK indicators
- SPS ENGINE INJECTOR VALVES indicator (bitmaps already available via CVS)

- SPS OXID & FUEL display (bitmaps already available via CVS)
- SPS OXID UNBAL gauge
- SPS OXID FLOW VALVE MIN/MAX talkbacks (bitmaps already available via CVS)

The still missing switches (10):

- FUEL CELL MAIN BUS A & B switches and talkbacks (6 switches, 6 talkbacks) and its two reset switches because you may want to put them in the same "
Code:
...SwitchRow
".

- SPS He VLV switches and talkbacks (2 switches, 2 talkbacks)

Also the PWR AMPL and TAPE MOTION talkbacks are missing (don't know the corresponding code as you know)

That's all. All other switches, thumbs and rotries should work Happy

I'll add the two telescope and periscope views too and do the cabin press panel the next days Wink

:lol: Yeah shouldn't be possible to open the shutes in space. Some functions have to be fixed and added (manual les tower jett etc.)

Electrical meter rotary switches are wired up, other than the battery charger (which doesn't exist yet).
