  1. The IXEG and X-Plane 11 Topic [Merged]

    Wish you guys the best of luck porting this over to XP11 and really appreciate you decided to make this upgrade free. This will definitely help bring the 733 to the top in terms of quality. You can really feel the amount of informed hand-tuning and love that went into making it just right. XP11 also has the potential to become the premiere sim platform going forward and as such, the 733 will get prime exposure. We all wish you safety first and foremost. Work can wait.
  2. The IXEG and X-Plane 11 Topic [Merged]

    Yeah, I can confirm that the default aircraft and even other addon aircraft are fine (tested the FJS732 and FF757v2). It's just the IXEG 733 that's broken, which is the bummer for me, because it's my favorite. Was just asking here if people don't have some obvious thought off the top of their heads, so I don't have to wait. I have no doubt you guys (IXEG) are going to fix this on the 733 once XP11 goes final. Thanks again for the response!
  3. The IXEG and X-Plane 11 Topic [Merged]

    Thank you for the response! A few points to illustrate why I would like to disagree: The drift happens even with far lower power settings. The first 20 seconds I have power around 40-60% N1 (that's why I have the dataref readout there) and the drift is clearly visible. In fact, it happens even with the engine at idle (although the drift is quite a bit slower, see below), or pretty much as soon as there is any thrust imbalance and the aircraft is stopped. During this whole thing, the parking brake was APPLIED. Even at full power, the aircraft's engines shouldn't have enough power to overcome the brakes. Moreover, in this case the engine is working both against the brakes on the main gear AND the lateral static friction of the nose wheel. Put simply, this shouldn't be possible. This problem goes away as soon as the aircraft starts moving - a couple of knots of forward speed is enough to stop the drift at idle power. This leads me to the conclusion that it is some sort of bugging out of the new static gear modeling in XP11. This video is from the same testing sequence, just a little earlier while I was setting up the views. I don't think airplanes should behave this way on the ground. This looks a lot more like the physics kraken rearing its ugly head:

    Great stuff, thank you very much, the values you mentioned worked perfectly. Now I just need to figure out that strange ground friction bug. It's like the physics are all screwed when the wheels are stopped or near stopped. Applying the parking brake and spooling up just one engine produces this weirdness:
  5. The IXEG and X-Plane 11 Topic [Merged]

    The whole ground friction model on the 733 is screwed. With the parking brake set and one engine at idle, if you floor the other, the aircraft will simply start rotating around the main gear as if the nosewheel had no lateral friction. Bizarre.
  6. The IXEG and X-Plane 11 Topic [Merged]

    Public beta 15 introduced a new suite of problems and I can't figure out how to solve them: When you're moving slowly (<3-4 kts) and deflect the nosewheel above ~30 degrees, the aircraft stops as if brakes had been applied (they haven't). Example video (engines running at a constant 42% N1): The engine idle is very low, below the green arc. N1 idles at 12% and N2 at about 52%. Normally the values should be ~20% and 65%, IIRC. Anybody got any ideas if this can be fixed in Plane Maker? If so, where? I tried reducing the gear flatplate area from 15 to 5, but that didn't help. As-is, the aircraft is pretty unusable in PB15. (I know IXEG will fix this once XP11 goes final, but until then if somebody in the community has an idea, I'd appreciate it!)

    I agree, but I just fly the hold using the MCP and a clock. At least there's something for me to do while in the hold.
  8. Version 2.0.3

    124 downloads

    X-RAAS is an open-source plugin that simulates the Honeywell Runway Awareness and Advisory System. Version 2.0 is a complete from the ground-up rewrite of the original X-RAAS FlyWithLua plugin. Please note that this is not just an upgrade of the old plugin and cannot be simply downloaded and plastered over the old 1.0 version. See below for details on how to install this plugin. INSTALLATION X-RAAS2 is a standalone plugin written in C and as such no longer requires FlyWithLua. To install the plugin, unzip the contents into: <X-Plane>/Resources/plugins. If you have been using X-RAAS 1.0, be sure to remove it from FlyWithLua/Scripts, otherwise you will get strange doubled annunciations. NEW FEATURES FROM VERSION 1.0 X-Plane 10 & 11 compatible New configuration GUI: no need to mess around with config files anymore. The config files method is still supported, refer to section 2.1 of the included user manual for details on how to migrate existing customizations from version 1.0. Much improved performance: no more stuttering when Lua decides to collect garbage on slow systems. No more audio compatibility issues: this resolves audio compatibility issues with 3rd party addons such as Ground Handling Deluxe and the LES SAAB 340A (among others). More sensible automatic scenery alteration detection and scenery data cache rebuild. The cache rebuild is now also much faster. Much more fine-grained control over each RAAS monitor. Nicer text rendering and substitutable fonts & sizes. Ability to switch between "LONG LANDING" and "DEEP LANDING". User manual rewritten in LaTeX with clickable hyperlinks. Much more streamlined embedding into 3rd party aircraft avionics. The avionics integration guide is now a separate PDF manual with much more detail on how fine-tune the embedded software and how it compares to and interacts with a stand-alone installation. DEMONSTRATION VIDEO The video below is from version 1.0, but version 2.0 features virtually all identical annunciations.

  10. Spot whats new (v1.1 spoiler alert)

    Wish there was something I could do to help you guys out with regarding custom avionics coding. If you think there's some particular system on a "nice to have" list that you guys don't have the time to produce right now, please let me know.
  11. Version 2.0, release candidate 4, available on the Github project release page. Changes: Rewritten documentation in pdfTeX to obtain more consistent formatting. Added lots more error checking and reporting to the OpenAL integration to check for all kinds of weird underlying OpenAL errors.
  12. Version 2.0, release candidate 3, available on the Github project release page. Changes: Implemented parsing of APPCH procedures to extract the runway GPA. Removed guessing at the TCH & GPA by scanning the location of GS antennas. Documented all the new options in the PDF and the sample config file. Included sample config in distribution package. Added the auto_disable_notify option to the config GUI. Switched from '--' to '#' for comments in the config file. The legacy '--' combo is retained for backwards compatibility.
  13. Version 2.0, release candidate 2, available on the Github project release page. Changes: Fixed regression when enabling use_tts would crash the sim on attempting to emit an annunciation.
  14. Version 2.0, release candidate 1, available on the Github project release page. Changes: Added harder detection of malformed VGSI entries. Made GS antenna elevation always be equal to the threshold elevation for auto-computation purposes (avoids strange behaviors for GS antennas with bad elevation values). Fixed error when the cache was manually removed and subsequently the user used the menu entry to recreate it. Fixed incorrect cache location in gui.c after it has been moved to Output/caches. Bumped cache version to regenerate caches using newly hardened algorithm.
