    Couple of small bugs that need ironing

    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)

    IXEG 737 Cockpit and sound problem.

    seems pretty much this same issue attached below (try disabling "show vortices" on the IXEG left preferences menu). Hope this helps

    IXEG 737 and Precision Flight Controls C2 Pro

    A bit of contribution for your consideration. You should consider adding a bit of code to the script to check what aircraft you are loading, otherwise your hardware fuelcutoff buttons may stop working for other aircraft you use. Also, the ixeg dataref you are commanding is only available when the IXEG bird is loaded and will lead to a lua error/stop when loading a different aircraft. So the script provided you above, i would suggest as follows: if PLANE_ICAO == "B733" then -- Engine 1 cutoff switch create_switch(15, "sim/flightmodel/engine/ENGN_mixt", 0, 1, 0) create_switch(15, "ixeg/733/fuel/fuel_start_lever1_act", 0, 1, 0) -- Engine 2 cutoff switch create_switch(17, "sim/flightmodel/engine/ENGN_mixt", 1, 1, 0) create_switch(17, "ixeg/733/fuel/fuel_start_lever2_act", 0, 1, 0) end note: by adding those simple lines, the buttons customization will only trigger when loading the IXEG 737, you may also add easily additional entries for different aircrafts if those use different datarefs for fuel cut off. hope this helps

    IXeg RAdio

    Go to the radio panel (center pedestal): 1. Tune your desired freq. and make sure you made it ACTIVE by pushing the transfer (TFR) switch 2. Go to the MIC SELECTOR panel (located just below, a series of squared buttons below the HSI panel), by default MIC is set to PA for announcements, clic VHF1 instead If you still have problems i can prepare you an image to attach for a better illustration. hope this helps

    TOGA button assignment

    IXEG uses xplane default command for TOGA Map 'sim/engines/TOGA_power' to your button.
  6. 1. folder name must be 'coroutes' (the installer does not create it automatically, you have to create it manually within the aircraft 737 root folder) 2. On siembrief, do all your planning as usual 2.1 Then Generate de Flight Plan 2.2 Then clic DOWNLOAD FMS button (i do select manual files but you may use the downloader tool) 2.3 Then clic DOWNLOAD button for the IXEG 737 Classic and select your /IXEG 737 Classic/coroutes/ folder for the destination 2.4 On the Aircraft (minimal steps from cold and dark for testing purposes) 2.4.1 Battery ON 2.4.2 AC power ON and feeding the BUSES (via APU or GPU) 2.4.3 Set both IRS knobs to NAV 2.4.4 On the FMC enter the POS INIT 2.4.5 Clic RTE page and type on the scratchpad the FILENAME without the .fpl extension and clic LSK2 (left soft key 2 to import) 2.4.6 Select departure runway and sid, select arrival star and runway (these are not part of the export, you have to do it on the fmc) hope this helps EDIT -- IMPORTANT NOTE: make sure you use the same navdata cycle on simbrief and on the aircraft FMC, otherwise simbrief may suggest an unsupported flight plan

    Compatibility with CHProduct Yoke

    if i am not mistaken, via xplane joystick menu: SINLGE USER LEVER: assign your desired hardware lever to -prop-, this should control both CLs or DUAL USER LEVER: assign one lever to prop1 (for left CL) and a second lever to prop2 (for right CL) Always make sure unused hardware axis levers are assigned to NONE! hope this helps

    Limited bank angle

    This kind of complain posts, about updates, comes over and over and over again. No matter what aircraft, weather engine, developer. People, please understand simulating the systems for aircrafts that cost + hundred millions on research, development and that have been engineered and improved by decades by manufacturers are not an easy task for 50 bucks?? I truly invite you to start your own business, try to come up with a close to real life simulation, offer daily updates, free updates for xp10, 11.... and impress us and make us extremely happy.

    Graphical Bug Cockpit: ND/ FMC

    your xplane is loading tons of plugins still (flywithlua, xpuipc, groundhandling, lua custom scripts, .SASL, etc. etc.) you also didn't try to load the ixeg aircraft at all. You are loading a 737-700 please we need you follow the instructions 1, 2, 3 steps listed above to offer some help.

    Graphical Bug Cockpit: ND/ FMC

    I have been on the forums for quite some time now, i have never seen those captures. Please attach (do not copy / paste but attach) your xplane log.txt file? it is located on the xplane root folder. I would suggest: 1. Remove all third party plugins from the plugins folder (disabling them via xlplane is not the same than removing them, move them out of plugins folder) 2. Run xplane and try to use the ixeg aircraft 3. close xplane and attach your log.txt file here

    How to open the door from inside ?

  13. Maximum cruise speed of 330 knots dictated by the manufacturer is TAS not GS (Ground speed). Si, if you were getting 314 knots of GS under a 14 knots headwind component your TAS was actually 328 knots. Pretty much exactly what the manufacturer says. So i would think the TBM 900 performance simulatiom from this guys is SPOT ON. Also note the manufacturer states 330 knots under ISA conditions at FL280. So if you are flying higher or lower, and ISA conditions also doesn't match (temperature) it will also impact performance

    Fuel Cross Feed not working ?

    There is a miss conception i presume. Cross feed valve is not meant to pass fuel one tank to the other but to selectively burn fuel from one side tank to feed the other side engine fuel lines if required. I you want to balance the tanks, you open the cross feed valve as you did and you turn OFF the AC fuel pumps for the left side tank in your case (experiencing lower qty), so the right side tank ac pumps will pressurize/feed left & right engine via the cross feed. Once enough fuel from the right tank is burnt and both balanced, you turn back to ON left tank AC fuel pumps, close cross feed, to resume normal operation Hope this clarifies.

    Go Flight Modules Problems - W/ Xplane 10

    To my understanding The Sandy plugin is inactive for years now. I can not imagine how your hardware will work well while aircraft gets updated datarefs and commands for those aircrafts change as well, new aircrafts come to live. You should start considering spending a few bucks for buying an interface for your hardware that works, has support and allows you tu run your hardware across any aircraft or update. I do suggest this https://shop.pollypotsoftware.org.uk/goflight-interface-tool-xplane.html This is the one i have been using with no issue for my goflight stuff prior to migrating to VR. There most common aircraft profiles are already available on the download section, still the graphical interface is designed for you to create your own profiles for supporting your hardware to any aircraft (or update) you like they way you like. Extremely powerful tool
