  1. Ok, I can confirm now that any button on my yoke which is set to "do nothing" in XP11 will disable the autobrake immediately. It's strange that a button that should not send anything to the sim can change the behaviour of the IXEG. For me, it looks like it is a Laminar Bug but I am not sure. At least we know that there is something going wrong here. Sebastian
  2. Great to hear that! I will try tonight if a simple button on my yoke that is set to "Nothing" will disarm the autobreak as well... Sebastian
  3. Hello Mike, I had quite the same issue with my Saitek Throttle Quadrant till yesterday. I did some more testing and found some strange behaviour of XP11/IXEG. My setup: Left lever: Speedbrake, Mittle Lever: Thrust Engine 1, Right Lever: Thrust Engine 2. The Saitek has 3 integrated buttons that are active when you push a lever below 0 (Marked in red circle). for these buttons my setup is: Left: "do nothing", Middle: Toggle Reversers, Right: "do nothing". After Landing, I push the two thrust levers beyond 0 to enable toggle thrust reverse and at that point, the autobrake was every time disarmed automatically. Quite strange as I never had this issue on X-Plane 10 with the previous versions of the IXEG. So I did some tests! When I just push the middle lever below 0 it toggles the reversers and autobrake keeps active. If I just push the right lever below 0 to activate the button that is configured in XP11 as "do nothing", the autobrake disarms immediately! THIS IS STRANGE! I tell X-Plane that NOTHING should happen if this button gets active but it disables the autobrake! So I repeated the same test for the left lever. It was also configured to "do nothing". If that button gets active it disables the autobreak as well! I found a way to work around that issue by creating a small FlyWithLua script that creates a command that really does nothing. function do_nothing() -- This function is needed because thrust revers buttons on saitek throttle quadrant -- will disable autobreak if Xp11 "do nothing" is set on them. end create_command("MyStuff/IXEG733/DoNothing", "Do really nothing","do_nothing()","","") After assigning my "DoNothing" command to the two buttons the autobreak works as it should. I do not know If that might help you but maybe you have the same kind of problem with your go flight tq6 throttle. I also cannot tell if that is a bug of XP11 or IXEG... Greetings, Sebastian
  4. Ixeg RTE Page reads "Not in Database"

  5. Ixeg RTE Page reads "Not in Database"

    Hello Ryan, From your Log I can see that your Disk ist Case Sensitive formatted. It might be that I am wrong but I am thinking that I read somewhere that Gizmo does not support that! Maybe you get in contact with Ben Russell and verify that. Greetings, Sebastian
  6. Crash totaly X-Plane and Windows after Pause

    Hello Sloboda, First: Without any logfiles it is nearly impossible to help you with your problem. Second: If you have Tugmaster from Jardesign (itow) then remove it from your plugins folder and try it again. Greetings, Sebastian
  7. As far as I know, the spoiler will deploy automatically if reverse thrust is toggled. Maybe I am wrong... I'm sure someone will know it :-) Sebastian
  8. I heard that too I thought it is intended and is caused by gusting wind... But maybe that's wrong... Sebastian
  9. No Marker sounds/Altitude callouts when on Pilotedge

    I did a nice flight from LPPT to EDDN on VATSIM on Wednesday and the Collouts worked. Markers I am not sure... Can not remember :-) What I am still missing somehow is the minimums callout... Sebastian
  10. Activation

    I would try following: 1. Grab you X-Plane DVDs and make a fresh install to C:\X-Plane 10 with just a small part of global Scenery. 2. Download the latest X-Plane Installer/Updater from http://www.x-plane.com/downloads 3. Update X-Plane to the latest stable release 4. Start that fresh installed X-Plane version and check that it loads correctly with a default plane. 5. Quit X-Plane 6. Add an Exception for C:\X-Plane 10 in Windows Defender and/or your Anti-Virus Software. 7. Redownload the IXEG Installer (without using any download manager) from X-Aviation 8. Install the IXEG with that Installer into the fresh C:\X-Plane 10. 9. Start X-Plane as administrator and check if you can activate the IXEG. 10. Do not add any plugins or custom scenery until you have verified if the activation works. That's how I would try to get that topic solved. Greetings, Sebastian
  11. Some in-cockpit menu options are inactive

    That's what I thought as well. Sebastian
  12. Some in-cockpit menu options are inactive

    Hello Shawn, I am using the IXEG on two computers. One is my Desktop Computer with a dedicated graphics card and the other is my laptop which I am using to test and develop some stuff in X-Plane. This Laptop has an On Chip Intel HD Grapics card. On my Desktop everything looks fine... On my Laptop however, I have the same issue as you have. I have the feeling that it is somehow linked to that (poor) Intel HD Graphics card. Some techical Information for IXEG Team: My Graphic Card Details from X-Plane Log: Shawn's Graphic Card Details from X-Plane Log: Maybe it can help you somehow... For me it is pretty clear that an on chip gpu is not the correct approach to run a flight simulator. For testing it is ok but it has pretty poor performance and I would not expect a good experience with it. Greetings, Sebastian
  13. An Idea for VIEW PRESETS

    Thats a good workaround mgeiss! Thank you. I agree with you Jan! But that's why I like x-camera so much... You have the same functionalities like X-Plane defaults combinded with view presets menu and a ton of other features and a lot flexibility. Very nice is that you can enable and disable TrackIR with a command in every view for example. Greetings, Sebastian
  14. An Idea for VIEW PRESETS

    There is no real problem :-) It's just comfort... I am using X-Camera and this comes with it's own "view presets" on the lower end of the screen. If you want to select the Lower left item, you have to be very careful not to move your mouse a pixel too far or you get both view presets overlapping: I really like the view presets you added. But X-Camera gives you much more possibilities and you can add a lot views and also categorize them as you want. Greetings, Sebastian
  15. An Idea for VIEW PRESETS

    I like the idea of having an user option to disable the view presets. Sebastian
