    ECS? What is that?

    It is basically the air conditioning system, when running you need pressurized air for the packs to run the conditioning system, but it comes with a thrust cost %, thus many airlines requires ECS OFF for takeoff when a short or contaminated runway, etc. the aircraft will perform different having ECS on vs off thus the split charts

    Simples question....

    Be cautious about this! Pressing DEL on the LEGS page and the soft key next to the restriction will remove BOTH SPEED & ALTITUDE. Altitude clearing from ATC does not implies SPEEDING clearing as well -if any-. So this procedure works well to remove a waypoint altitude restriction having no mandatory speeding constrain as well. you need to go CLB page and delete ALT restriction from there (right side), not to mess speed -if any- (left side)

    VR capabilities of Saab

    as the instructions says for playing VR you have to replace the 2 files with the ones provided simvrlabs, for playing non-vr you use your 2 original files. This is the trade off as of now until the saab v2.0 arrives and most likely will be full VR ready

    VR capabilities of Saab

    I think 1.X run is not VR supported/tuned officially, most likely 2.0 will make it But in the mean time you may try the following link, this is the one i am using but please do not raise ticket to LES about this. At you own risk http://simvrlabs.com/aircraft-les-saab-340a/ there are other bird supported if you go home menu

    Help/Advice on IXEG 737

    2. you can use tools like http://www.skyvector.com, enter your origin and destination airport, then build up your own routes using VORs or whatever you like. is this what you are trying to do? 3. any standard -usb- yoke, joystick, pedals you like will work on imac as well. but if you want to connect some "professional" hardware that requires custom software it may not be available for osx, since pcs is what counts for pro powerfull setups.

    FMC question - Direct to

    1. Press DIR INTC button on the FMC. The line 6L should prompt empty boxes, select your desired DIRTO waypoint by pressing its corresponding left soft key or 2. You can also modify the LEGS inflight. Press the desired Left Soft Key waypoint (this will copy the waypoint name to the scratchpad) then press the active waypoint Left Soft key to override. This will shift up the entire flight plan excecute note: editing the legs may not be to the active waypoint if desired only. i.e. your flight plan looks like w1, w2, w3, w4, w5, w6. Your active waypoint is w1 and you want it to fly w1, w2 then w5, w6 (skipping w3 & w4) so you press w5 soft key then you press w3 soft key to override and shift up, and your flight plan will look w1, w2, w5, w6. You skipped w3 & w4 but still flying w1 & w2 first. Hope this helps.

    Condition Levers

    xplane supports per aircraft profiles. make sure you created a saab profile and do not assign any lever to mixture under it. Or do i am missing something here? This should prevent your issue entirely.

    Dataref Question

    you may want to try datareftool plugin, it is free and will tell what dataref changes realtime. So you run datareftool, move the lighting knobs and see what changes. I am not at the sim for the day, otherwise i would be happy to investigate it for you. Maybe at night if you didn't get it get yet

    Fuel In Centre

    the aircraft has a scavenge jet pump that drains the little remaining fuel on the center tanks to main tank 1 so all fuel in the center tank is used. On the classic series 737-300, the scavenge jet pump activates manually by the pilot when you turn off the center tank fuel pump, and it works for 20 minutes, transfer rate is very low. On the 737-NG the process is automatic, when the center tank is low and the main tanks reaches half their capacity, the scavenge pump activates and drains remaining fuel to main tank 1, process runs for the rest of the flight.

    1.21 sounds is too low

    you may adjust the sound sliders on the ixeg preferences left side menu also check your xplane master, interior & exterior sliders on the xplane sounds tab hope this helps
