Note: You will need to get one Ethernet module if you plan to use Ethernet for communication, not USB.
(supported systems: Linux, Windows, OSX with any version of X-Plane)
When you update the SimVimCockpit to a next version, the plugin will inform you about need to update firmware (if there is new firmware) and present you the Upload window with the options already filled in.
- You never need to upload the firmware to change I/O configuration, all you need to do is create new configuration file.
- If you have changed the data.cfg file while X-Plane is running, just click the "Reload Configuration" button in the Status window.
- With firmware uploaded you no longer need to unplug your controller board USB cable before X-Plane launch. If you use Ethernet firmware you don't need USB cable to be connected until you will need to upload new version of firmware.
After successfull first test you can be sure that SimVim plugin communicates with your controller, and you can start configuring it in the Configurator.
Plugin should always establish connection automatically every time X-Plane is started, no matter how many times you did this and how many changes you made in the data config file.
