Exposing MCDU to local network (FMS export)


Recommended Posts

Any way (or plans) to expose the MCDU via web server like we see on the FBW A320, PMDG 737, LSH MD-82...?
It really adds to the immersion and usability when the MCDU can be interacted with via a physical tablet.

At the very least make it "moddable" so we can expose it ourselves?
Here's what it looks like in the MD-82...



Other planes with this capability include the Asobo 787/747, WT CJ4, FSS E-Jets, Azurpoly C-160, DCD Concorde, Aerosoft CRJ, and the JustFlight 146.

Interesting. Could still probably pipe the rendered result into an Lvar of some sort, no? Or maybe pipe the rendered result out from the WASM side back to the JS/TS side and expose it there. Your EFB, for example, is compatible.

Seems strange that both, Asobo and third-party planes can do this, but it's impossible in this one...

The way you implemented the EFB, via the "microsoft-aircraft-a310-300\html_ui\Pages\VCockpit\Instruments" structure, means that efb.js can be slightly altered to pipe the rendered view to a web socket. Some of the other, aforementioned planes that expose their MCDU or EFB do it this manner. This project, for example pipes the CJ4's (WT) FMC to a node server that hosts it. This is a fairly crude example, compared to some of the others. The FBW A320, for example, ships with this functionality.
