Good morning ,

Several weeks ago, we have reported that we will start a new version of OrbitXP to be more compatible with X-Plane 12, but first we have to deliver SismoLink V1.7, which will be in the next days, in fact probably today V1.7.0 (beta version for new features) will be available. Therefore, we will start updating the current version of OrbitXP, always keeping in mind the limitations of X-Plane and Zibo in terms of the interface through datarefs.

The delivery date of the first beta of this new release will be communicated in our website and in this forum.

Regards,

Hi !

Thanks for this excellent information .

It could be very interesting for us to know what exactly mean "limitations or X-Plane and Zibo in terms of the interface through datarefs/commands .
What are you missing that prevents Sismo from having a fully functional connector?
 
Hi,

The limitations regarding datarefs/commands have to do with the fact that not all buttons, rotaries, switches, annuciators, leds, pots, servos, etc. in Zibo have an associated dataref or command, so even if the Seismic modules are fully operational, it is not possible to establish communication with the Sim and all its functions. It is the same thing that happens with PMDG, not everything is operational. So far, the only fully operational software is Prosim, however with Zibo you have most of the necessary functions available through the interface to be able to use the simulator to full satisfaction, as with PMDG.

In the manuals are some of these limitatios already documented

Bonjour,

The first beta of OrbitXP V5 for X-Plane is now available. It is a very preliminar release with the plug-in upgraded to X-Plane 12 and tested the functionality of MCP and EFIS. For recorded previous bugs and other modules it has not been still tested. Due to it is a preliminary beta, any feedback is welcome to info@sismo-soluciones.com

Hi !

Thanks , I will test this beta version right now ! :)
 
Dernière édition:
A new prebeta version of OrbitXP V5.1 updated for MCP/EFIS and FWD Overhead has been released

Hi !

Thank you for this OrbitXP new prebeta !

After a quick test , all panels are working as intended !

compared to OrbitXP with XP11 or XP12 :
on the Exterior Lights Control Panel Module (bottom panel) more switches are now active .
starting engines ON , no more yaw quirk (even if ON , returned to OFF in 3D cockpit)
brightness display intensity is not not adjustable even if it was modified in config.ini file ...

I will report by mail to be more precise this week .

MIP LIGHTS TEST ON successfull apart panels with common anode (not a Sismo issue , my mistake when ordered , old story !) .
As you can see , some are not lit on Pitot Heat panel , AC&DC Metering panel , Center panel , Exterior Door Annunciator (X-Plane 12)

Key functions:
  • All the modules and services included in OrbitXP V5.2
  • RT VHF3 frequencies
  • RT VHF2 and VHF3 led activation
  • IRS Display brightness control throught knob
 
Voici ci dessous la réponse de Sismo après les quelques tests que j'ai fait avec l'overhead.

Je sais que @Playrec a envoyé aussi les résultats de ses propres tests.

Je les montre ici (avec l'accord de Sismo) si ça peut aider certains.



Issue
Answer
Lights Test
As noted previously, some annunciators are not available in the X-Plane 12 interface, so their status is not received and they cannot be controlled by OrbitXP, this is a limitation of Zibo. In the light test, we can include them by forcing them to turn on, but then they will not work in the Overhead, even if they turn on in the Zibo 738X and may confuse the user. It is better to leave this functionality as is and as they appear in the interface they are included in OrbitXP.

Note: It may also be that some annunciators have not found the name of the dataref where it is available, as there are hundreds of them.
Flood Light
The cockpit lights and backlight brightness are not connected with X-Plane, due to they are stand-alone modules to control the light. There is no connection between the pot located in the pedestal and the flood light, it requires a special connection not implemented. The pot for the flood light is located in the FWD Over
Left Engine Start rotary does nor turn to the center
OK, noted, to be analyzed asap
IRS rotary Test position
This is an issue that, although it seems simple, it is not. Zibo does not handle momentary switches and pushbuttons from the interface. Although it has commands for these components in the interface, when they are sent, Zibo receives them, but it is not visible in the user interface, in some cases it does not even register that they have been activated, especially for pushbuttons. In the case of OrbitXP they do work, but we had to devise a special way and we have succeeded. We don't know if others have managed it, but it's not easy and that's why OrbitXP offers almost all the functionality that Zibo has. How much all this, because the position “Test” of the rotary is momentary and therefore on the basis of the explained, Zibo receives the command from OrbitXP, but does nothing. We have to change the logic, when we study it, we will see if it is possible.
