    Couple of small bugs that need ironing

    Thanks for the feedback. I think I was not clear in my explanation so let me try and explain it better this time: if say, R-TO N1 limit for T/O is 86.4% as calc from the FMC for example, and I want to manually place the bugs at that value, when I dial in 86.4%, it does not coincide with 86.4% in the N1 gauge scale, but rather, it lines up with 98.1% in the scale. Another way of seeing this situation is that if I were to set T/O N1 at 86.4% and, say I want to line up the N1 bug dial manually with that thrust setting, the bug value in its window shows 74.7% I would attach an image but for some reason it is giving me an error when uploading.

    Couple of small bugs that need ironing

    The fuel in the tanks will get colder the longer your at cruise altitude it's really cold up there. The gage reads from the left wing tank and that is theoretically the coldest tank. The only thing that warms the fuel in the left main tank is the A system hydraulic cooler and that is the smaller system less heat than the B system that is cooled in the right main tank. There is an oil to fuel heater that heats fuel but that is in route between the fuel tank and the engine and the heated fuel gets burned by the engine. No help warming the fuel in the tanks. If the fuel in the the left main gets to cold (below -37C for jet A. The aircraft limit is -45C or 3C below the freeze point of the fuel. The most common fuel in the USA is JetA with a freeze point of -40C) you have two options speedup (more skin friction to help heat the fuel) or descend to a lower altitude (warmer). Generally speaking this is not a problem in the 737-300 because the time at cruse is not long enough to cause the fuel temperature to drop that much. On large wide body aircraft some flight planning software will predict fuel temperature drop at cruse and help you stay out or trouble.

    The N1 thrust bugs are limit bugs. TO, R-TO, CLB, CRZ, G/A and CON. The only time you should see the N1 thrust needle at the bug is when the thrust is set to the limit for the mode your in. Most of the time the thrust will be below the bug limit except during full thrust takeoffs and full thrust climbs.

    to my understanding oil temperatures are pretty much default xplane code, thus not very accurate. IXEG is fully aware of this not sure if this is going to be addressed as part of an upcoming update. fuel temperature is expected to be around OAT while on the ground, it will start cool down as you climb and cruize were the aircraft experiences freezing TAT temps. Min fuel operative temp is -45C while typical freezing point you must not reach for JET A1 fuel is -47C If by any reason you approach that fuel temps, you should descend to warmer ir or increase speed for increasing TAT (kinetic heating) note: also note fuel temp will not follow TAT temps just plain and simple, since liquid takes time to cool down (while ascending) as to heat up (as descending)

    using real sim gear panels question

    Hello Everyone, I got the realsim gear panels, well just one for now, and it works great, keys function just as expected, but one thing I'm trying to do is turn off the panel in x plane, so basicly I have two monitors(one right now in my case is an ipad(PFD), the other is the real sim gear(MFD) so I have all of the panels I need, and I'm working on external buttons for everything else. If I turn it off using the xplane key ctrl+W it goes away, but the panels don't update anymore. Also I can see the exahust off the engine(which is no big deal) I'm fine dealing with that, but would be nice to turn off the cockpit. I can move the view around so the cockpit is hidden, but the seating position is a little off. Thanks for any advice you can offer. I am really enjoying this aircraft, it actually brought me over to xplane from P3D.
  11. Ive been using IXEG 737 and over the last couple of updates to XP11, Ive noticed minor bugs happening that would really like to be taken care whenever the next update to the plane comes out. 1. Oil temperature continuously rises as you climb (FMC N1 thrust set) when reaching the the lo FL300s, they pretty much redline and stay there even throughout the cruise portion. They dont cool off until you are in the descent. 2. N1 thrust rating bug values and positions in the N1 dial dont match the actual N1 value of dial. 3. IDG oil temp gauges in the ovhd panel are almost always stuck at 0deg in both the In and Rise positions. Sometimes, only the L one comes alive and R remains stuck. 4. Fuel temperature seems not to be working or fuel not being heated up as fuel temperature starts at say 16C at the beginning of the flight and then decreases steadily throughout cruise and gets to the negative temps. Anyone else experiencing these small bigs or do I have something wrong?

    Installer won’t work!!

    Hi I just purchased the SF34 and can’t get the installer to work. I don’t get the option to allow the install from the security settings pane either! It just closes immediately with no options. Please help!

    This is an assertion failure inside of X-Plane's FMS code. Please report to Laminar with the log attached. They seem to have a bug in there that is setting the GPS course variable to an invalid angle.

    From the best guess, this looks like a crash inside of X-Plane's core code: EXCEPTION_ACCESS_VIOLATION <--- This means X-Plane attempted to read invalid memory Backtrace is: 0 00007FF641E9DA30 C:\Users\GregR\Desktop\X-Plane 11\X-Plane.exe+0000000000A6DA30 () <--- This is the offending code that caused the crash If it were caused by our code, it would say "systems.xpl" somewhere in the stack trace. Since I only see X-Plane.exe there, I suspect it's been caused by X-Plane itself.

    TBM 900

    Hi Cameron, saw a Video from Totoritko himself the other day. Much to my surprise he set the TBM 900 on a 10 NM Approach and thus left me confused. Regards, Rolf

    TBM 900 braking after Landingt

    Hello everybody, in order to bring the plane to a complete standstill after landing I set one button of my Thrustmaster 16000 to Toggle Reverse #1. One time it worked and I could slow down the plane. 30 minutes ago no reaction. The plane kept on rolling, crashed into some building and cought fire. Tried to look under the power lever inside the cockpit if the little hook goes down which releases the lever to taxi and reverse mode. Saw it in a video from Totoritko. Also here no reaction. Anybody out there who can help please? I hope I am in the right forum. Nice weekend, Rolf

    I have an idea what might be casusing this, but I'll send a DM to Saso and see if he comes up with anything.

    Ok..I updated my GPU drivers to the latest and that seemed to help alot. I had used simbrief to create the flightplan used above and the Xplane AIRAC cycle (1708) is not available to me so I deleted that flightplan and just entered my plan via the G1000 in the cockpit. All was going very well. I was about 100ft from touchdown and BAM....got a spinning hourglass (in my VR headset) and a frozen display. I pulled off my headset and saw an error on the screen. The same error was in the log.txt and I have attached that as well. Here is what it said: 1:09:22.000 E/SYS: +------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 1:09:22.000 E/SYS: | Unexpected exception resulted from GPS update 1:09:22.000 E/SYS: | Course must be between 0 and 2*Pi 1:09:22.000 E/SYS: | 1:09:22.000 E/SYS: | 1:09:22.000 E/SYS: | (fm_navi.cpp:696) 1:09:22.000 E/SYS: +------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 2019-09-13 21:19:13 TBM900[except.c:232]: Caught unknown exception e06d7363 Log.txt

    One thing sticking out at me is your GPU drivers. They're pretty old. But the main issue I can see, and I've seen it before with crashes like yours. Please check the image and see what you can do to try and fix this on your end.

    STAR select issue

    I am sure , actual navdata. Tested once again offline-the same. Seems like after passing PELEN there is no choice of this star again. I even added that fix again to the route in flight, but no help. Worth checking with other approaches - maybe a bug ? Cheers

    STAR select issue

    Hmm, not sure what happened - are you sure there is a STAR to runway 07 from PELEN? Also you want to select runway 07 first, then you should be given the choice of all STARS associated with it. Cheers, Jan
  25. It's pretty easy to reproduce. Get in the plane in VR and click on the PFD, MFD or PFD2 screens. Its very easy to inadvertenly click on these spots with vr controller. The 2D panels popout and get in your face. The autopilot and controls for MFD also popout. While useful in a display monitor, for VR these 2D screens do more harm than good. In Xplanes Cirrus 50, for example, these displays do not popup in the VR. (they open on the regular display). Here's another post about it. Another airplane developer (epic e100) added an option to disable g1000 popups Snippet from changelog... "Added option to disable G1000 popups (stock or custom) - request from VR users." https://forums.x-plane.org/index.php?/forums/topic/172033-g1000-edition-v325-available/ Another post about this: https://forums.x-plane.org/index.php?/forums/topic/171272-g1000-popups-are-buggy-and-other-thoughts/&tab=comments#comment-1595925 GREAT PLANE!!!!

    STAR select issue

    Hello, today on a short hop LICR-LICJ online IVAO I experienced a problem with selecting STAR. The route was SOPOM PELEN and initially I got clearance for runway 25 PELEN4B , then the approach ATC gave me 07 runway clearance, but I had no more PELEN STAR on my list to choose. At that time I passed PELEN fix - may this be a couse of lacking star on the list? Cheers

  28. @Cameron I think you took my question a little too literally there. I wasn't asking "Is there news you had on this that you forgot to post?", I was asking "It's been a while since we've heard anything about these fairly large remaining bugs, is a fix forthcoming?". @Goran_M Ok, thanks. Glad it's still being worked on.
