Microsoft Flight Simulator to EFIS interface (About 1.2 MBytes) version 1.1 release.

This update changes the USB communications related to attitude in order to retain compatibility with current EFIS releases.

This Windows based program acts as the glue between a Microsoft Flight Simulator installation and a Enigma, Odyssey or Voyager EFIS. The EFIS is connected to the PC using a USB port (using a standard PC/USB printer cable). This installation also includes a USB driver for the MGLUEFIS program. This first issue does not include any engine data transfer from the flight simulator. Items covered are: All primary flight instruments, AHRS, compass (heading), GPS related items.

This program depends on a third party interface called FSUIPC. This is a shareware program. It works unrestricted. If you find this program useful, we would like to ask you to register it with its author (http://www.schiratti.com/dowson.html). It is very inexpensive. This installation includes the FSUIPC DLL that needs to be copied into the Flight Simulator modules folder. This DLL caters for Flight Simulator versions up to FS2004 Century of Flight. For FSX you need the FSUIPC4 installation which can be downloaded here: http://www.schiratti.com/dowson.html You can also download the full FSUIPC distribution from this website if you need it.
