LES SAAB 340 LP Bleed and Recirc Not Selectable

Recommended Posts

Hi all, just wondering if anyone has experienced a problem with the right-hand side LP bleed and recirc not being selectable after engine start. I'm using it for type endorsement practice, and after engine start I can't select these switches. Usually they become accessible after the power has been applied (like after take off)or in the climb/cruise.

Running 1.5.1 and latest x-plane and mac updates as of this date. Also, I'm not using the auto-start feature and starting engines manually but it seems to happen regardless of start procedure.

Could you post a screenshot or screenshots of what exactly is happening?  I've tried to duplicate this, and it all works fine for me.

Hi Goran, I've attached a video. It started about the time of the 1.30 X-Plane Beta release. I downgraded to the non-beta version at the time but still had the problem.

Also on startup, I get a lot of hot starts now.. I don't believe I've changed anything that would affect it (certainly haven't changed anything within the Saab files themselves). The screen recording shows the recirc left fans being switched on but the right side doesn't work. Same with the LP bleeds. Once it's been started for a while (or sometimes it needs takeoff/cruise power), the ability to use the right side comes back.

Had a look and tested exactly what you did.  I cannot duplicate the problem with the ECS stuff.  Can you post your log.txt so I can see what's going on.

Also, re the hot starts.  We're aware of it and a fix is in the works.  This is XP11's engine model conflicting with ours.  Just an FYI, we originally made the Saab for XP10, so the hot starts were not an issue back then.  No ETA yet, but we're working on it.

Need you to do a little work on your end.  First thing is to remove all plugins, except Gizmo, from your plugins folder, and then try again.  I'm seeing quite a few plugins that could be causing the problem.  Test again and post back.

You're right Goran. X-Mission seems to be the one doing it, however, I was sure it did it intermittently before so will continue to test and let you know anything that comes up.
