Project Magenta FSUIPC Offsets

Public Version

Please Note: This Version is for Website Search use only, the latest official Offset List can be found here in the “Documentation” section .

Please send an e-mail (support@projectmagenta.com) with your unanswered questions or any hints you think may be useful to others. Thank you.

These offsets are Project Magenta FSUIPC offsets for communication with MSFS and X-Plane. You will find the FSUIPC SDK on www.schiratti.com/dowson.html

Note that a great number of offsets can be defined also via pmSystems, for a list of those offsets please check the file sysvar.txt in your pmSystems installation.

They are all 2 bytes long, unless otherwise stated.

To check whether the A/T is disconnected, use 0x310A bit 3 (as per FSUIPC documentation)

To interface to the MCP or FCU, ideally use the button commands as described in 0x4F2.

04F2 2 MCP/FCU Throughpass (See MCPcodes at the end) (Read/Write)Example: Write Value 33 to engage AP2 (K033 ELAN Code). Once read, the MCP resets the value to 0 and is ready for another read.
Only last three digits are used, you can use the thousands to indicate the key has been pressed again (state change), i.e. 4033 and 7033 do the sameUse 121 for TOGA (without N1)DisableRemoteMCP must be set to OFF in the INI file for this to work.
04F4 2 Glass Cockpit ND Modes (Write Only) (*was* Read as well)Sending 100+(value) controls First Officer Display (e.g. 170 enables weather on Copilot ND)
Only last three digits are used, you can use the thousands to indicate the key has been pressed again (state change), i.e. 2150 and 5150 do the samePlease note, these commands go directly to the Glass Cockpit, if you do not want the MCP or FCU to override them, then please use the MCP commands in 0x4F2 or 0×5520.

5428 2 CDU “Keyboard Interface” (2 bytes)low byte, ascii character
high byte shift = Bit0, Ctrl = Bit1, Alt = Bit2 … other bits must change if you have two same characters after the other…. (period) = 190
/ (slash) = 191
+ (plus) = 107
DELETE = 46
CLR = 8The space key is not supported for the time beingThis can be used to write characters to the scratchpad of the CDU and to manipulate the LSK and function keys – FX keys from Ascii 112+(X-1)Special ASCII
220 – automatic navaid selection/ autotune (no high byte = enable, shift = disable, ctrl = toggle)
(open to suggestions)

RCDU Extension: Setting bit 6 of the high byte, using the same rules as above, you can send keyboard commands to the RCDU. E.g. Sending “A” to the CDU is value 65, to the RCDU it is (256 * 2^6) + 65 = 256 * 64 + 65 = 16449 (this command will then of course be ignored by the CDU) Updated 14-12-2006

MCP/FCU Codes / MCP/FCU Interface (defined by ELAN Informatique)

The serial communication settings are 19200,N,8,1 Telegrams are all in ascii… where all telegrams are followed by a ASCII 0h I.e. when the HDG button is pressed, the MCP hardware sends to MCP.EXE (Basic Style Language): “K025″ + chr(0X0)

The MCP Throughpass (Offset 0x4F2) can use the following codes as well, e.g. to send K020 set value in 0x4F2 to 20decimal. When read, the MCP sets 0x4F2 back to 0.

Switches send following telegrams (hardware to program):

SPDP K010 (SPD pushbutton 747 MCP, Speed Intervention on B737 MCP)
HDGP K011 (heading SEL pushbutton 747 MCP, use K025 for HDG HOLD, K025 for HDG SEL on the 737)
