ArdSimX - Installation
Install ArdSimX Library
Download ArdSimX_Inteface.zip archive (latest version) and save it in some folder.
1. If you don't have ArdSimX Library installed, in Arduino IDE open the Menu-->"Sketch":
- For Arduino IDE v.1.6.0 - ---> "Import Library.."------> "Add Library..."
- For Arduino IDE v.1.6.9 - ---> "Include Library.."------> "Add .ZIP Library..."
- In the opened dialog find the folder where you have downloaded ArdSimX_Intrface.zip file
- Select downloaded *.zip file and the library will be added to Arduino IDE.
2. If you have previously installed ArdSimX library :
- - When you download a new version of ArdSimX Arduino library, make sure you've replaced the old version. (you can just replace the existing ArdSimX folder in your Arduino libraries folder if you had it previously).
Get Arduino IDE software from the official Arduino website: IDE Releases
You can use any version of IDE greater than 1.6.6 for ArdSimX.
Install ArdSimX Plugin
ArdSimX Plugin Installation:
Install the plugin into your X-Plane.
- Unzip the downloaded ArdSimX_plugin.zip file "AS-IS" into your X-Plane/Resources/plugins/ folder (the new folder named "ArdSimX" has to appear in X-Plane "Resources/plugins" folder).
- - Note: If you are using XP9.xx you need to leave the config files in "ArdSim" folder,
and move one ".xpl" plugin file (win/lin/mac) from the folder "32" to the root of "ArdSimX" folder
If the plugin is correctly installed the "ArdSimX" item in X-Plane "Plugins" menu will appear. This menu has three submenu items: Status, Reconnect and Reload Plugins (optional). Use "Status" if you want to check the plugin's connections state and change the USB option, and "Reconnect" when you need the plugin to search for new connected devices.
Note to X-Plane 11 users: the "Plugins" menu is only available in-flight, not inside the main menu.
