Hi Umberto

I would really like to see a revision and extension of audio trigger points within the coding to allow the creation/integration of bespoke and regional voice and sound sets. The audio content of GSX seems to have been the same for many years and there is huge potential for improvement here. Varied and regional audio would greatly enhance the user experience/immersion factor. Making these trigger points available for the creation of freeware/payware bespoke ground audio would enhance the appeal of the product ... and the production of in-house audio sets for different scenarios takes time and resources.

Not sure this is a feature request or a request as part of the Open API. Both probably!

Kind regards
Nick

Hi,

I tried to read the LVAR with a LUA Script but did not received any values. Could someone please write an example LUA Script to read one of the GSX LVar?
My script should be started from ipcready.lua and sync the "EXT PWR" Offset of JeeHell (A320 Homecockpit Software). I am aware of setting the Offset but can't read the GSX Lvars.

L:FSDT_GSX_DEBOARDING_STATE
L:FSDT_GSX_CATERING_STATE
L:FSDT_GSX_REFUELING_STATE
L:FSDT_GSX_DEBOARDING_STATE
L:FSDT_GSX_DEPARTURE_STATE

Thanks.

The L: before the name it's the XML syntax used by the official gauge SDK. In LUA (assuming you use it from LINDA), there's no L: before the name, for example:

deboardingState = ipc.readLvar("FSDT_GSX_DEBOARDING_STATE")

Thanks Umberto. Working perfectly.

Freeware Script is ready to download:
https://aviation.pero-online.de/wordpress/?page_id=1937

It would be very great if you could store the Parking/Gate Type (Gate Small, Gate Medium, e.g.) to an LVar. This would give the possibility to run certain operation depending on the Gate Type.

Great work again. I am loving GSX!

Hello!
Did the GSX "API" come at anytime?
Many cockpitbuilder want us it!
Please realize it!

Hi Umberto,

how can I access the variable for PAX in GSX v2? I would like to set it for JeeHell Airbus (Homecockpit Software).

All variables are documented in the last pages of the manual

Ups, sorry. Sure got it.
I've still used the manual from your website:

That's an outdated link, I'll fix it but, it's best you don't use it anymore.

The current manual, like every file belonging to any FSDT products, is updated by using the FSDT Live Update so, if you ran the Live Update recently, you should already have a copy of the latest version in the Addon Manager\Couatl\GSX folder.

Hi Umberto
Sorry to bring up an old topic again. I have a question: Is there a way to send commands to GSX Level 2 from the airplane, besides of the number of Passengers? The Idea is for example, if the airplane has the state "Engines off, beacon off, brakes set" that it would then send the command to automatically dock the jetway. So you don't have to open the commands (because P3D is only used for the graphics, not for simulation). The programm would send the commands to GSX while reading the state of the simulator. And for example, after closing the doors, the tool would give GSX the command to retract the Jetway and call the pushback truck.
It would be amazing, to send those commands directly to GSX because you could then really create remote controls for all GSX related steps.
I know it's not urgent thing, but it would be amazing if that could be made possible.
Kind Regards
Beat

UPDATE: NEVER MIND UMBERTO: found the answer in another topic: no way at the moment, but i could use macro programming on a joystick to achieve the same...

Hi Umberto,
One thing I would love to see would be to see two gsx passenger busses being used instead of one. I even saw two busses used for A320 plane.
Also would it be possible to update the animation the passengers boarding the plane. Usually I notice a queue being formed when boarding plane from either jetway or stairs.
It would feel more real to have a sense you are flying a lot of passengers.
Thank you

Hello Umberto!
Why is it not possible to open the API for GSX?
We all love your programm. It makes all flights more realistic.
But for us, the homecockpit builder it will be much more realistic to control it without a mouse and a keyboard.
So please open the API.
Best regards
