I’m glad to introduce you to my second sponsor: opencockpits.com. I really appreciate them for helping me out with my project!!!
As I told you in the last post I needed a power supply for my IO cards to led up my LED lights. I’ve ordered it already, so it will arrive soon! Furthermore I’ve got a second PC for my MIP setup which would run my monitors behind my MIP. I’ve realised in my test flight that my FS pc only needs to run FS because of the power and because of the fact that it doesn’t work well with all the different applications open, and I taught to add another pc to my setup. But I don’t have the money to buy a new pc so I needed to find another solution for this problem. I came up with the idea to use my desktop pc I use for school and all the other all day things and move them to my simulator once I need it. So I’ve got my old desktop pc and added there another GPU card in which now allows me to run all the monitors behind my MIP. I still use my pc for the all day school work, and move the PC to my simulator once necessary. It is not ideal but works now fine for me now and is the best solution I could think of. This is how it looks like now:
As you can see it is a little bit messy, but I now have two pc’s. The cover plate is removed as I need to add the power supply and do some modifications to my LEDs.
I finally now have a solution for the automatic start-up of FS once I start up my computer. I didn’t needed to install any add-ons to FS or any applications to windows. FSUIPC did it for me! To learn more click here.
I still don’t have a solution for my joystick problem but I hope to sort that out soon.
I didn’t have enough time to cut out the plates for my liner walls because of the time school takes me. It takes me a lot of time and energy to get used to the language and environment but I’m doing well. I hope to cut the plates out soon as well the plates the what cover the MIP lower bay soon!
I hope to speak to you soon!
