  1. You can trigger failures using the IOS, sure, but you won't be able to see the few custom ones we have (things like fuel leaks, etc.).

    MFD Pages Groups

    This is unfortunately a limitation with the stock G1000 integration. We can't quite freely organize the page groups and need to work within the confines of the stock avionics. As for the airport info page, that is a feature request that should be submitted to Laminar, as it's them who controls the contents of that page (this page isn't customized by us).

    Synthetic Vision Not Working, Sometimes

    @Greaser Please make sure you have stock X-Plane scenery, or hd-mesh-scenery installed underneath any ortho tiles generated via Ortho4XP. Ortho4XP doesn't include a DEM (Digital Elevation Map) segment in the generated DSFs, which is what the synthetic vision needs to construct its terrain view (and also the GPWS and WXR read this to determine the terrain shape).

    Plugin problem (Linux)

    I believe I've got this understood and figured out. It seems to be a libstdc++ incompatibility between Ubuntu (which I build & test on) and Debian. Fix is on the way to the reporter to verify the problem has been addressed.

    What framerates are you seeing on the TBM900?

    Thank you @giaco and @Ricardo Pallavidino!

    TBM 900 v1.1.1 Update Released!

    If you are running on XP11.30b5, then that's an issue that got introduced in beta 5. They changed the way monitor coordinates are represented, which confuses the sidebar window positioning code. Waiting on their response to see if they'll revert it back to the old behavior, or we'll simply have to re-implement that piece for XP11.30 and later.

    X-Plane crash log

    This seems to have been a crash in the underlying X-Plane avionics code when it was constructing the STAR. The Log doesn't contain any stack frames from our code, so this likely wasn't caused by us.

    Help with ILS approach

    @Pawel D. Very nicely explained. I'll just add that for LOC-only approaches, you wouldn't use APR, only "NAV". "NAV" is basically the roll mode, "APR" in addition also arms the GS pitch mode. So for localizer-only approaches, only use "NAV" and leave "APR" off. Little trick for achieving a constant-angle descent on a non-precision approach: Stabilize your airspeed. De-select any active pitch mode (e.g. when in VS, push the "VS" key again to de-activate the mode). This reverts the aircraft into pitch-hold mode. Use the UP<-->DN scroll wheel on the AP panel to manually adjust the pitch the autopilot will hold. Fine tune the pitch until the green FPV marker sits over the desired glidepath angle.

    Before starting engine checklist?

    The "before starting engine" checklist calls for the avionics to be OFF for most of the checklist. It wouldn't really make sense to have it in the G1000, if you need to have the G1000 off to complete the checklist.

    Left hand side menu

    They've changed the behavior of the XPLMGetAllMonitorBoundsGlobal function in Beta 5 and flipped the way it represents the top and bottom screen coordinates. This is what's messing up our window positioning. I'm hesitant to go change our code, because who knows if they won't revert it back to the older behavior in Beta 6.

    TBM 900 v1.1 Update Released!

    That's a Laminar G1000 "quirk" of sorts. When zooming out past the 37NM range ring, the MFD switches map projections and needs to redraw the underlying map. While it does this, any further commands are ignored. This is not something we can fix, unfortunately.

    TBM 900 v1.1 Update Released!

    You have enabled DISPLAY BACKUP mode (this mode is used in case the MFD or PFD fails - it compresses all information onto a single screen and makes all screens display the same image). You should be able to get out of the mode by pressing the red button on the bottom of the intercom panel to the left of the PFD. Aileron and rudder trim indications aren't available in backup mode, only elevator trim.

    very small checklist bug (and others)

    Did you perform any maintenance? That resets component temperatures to a zero state to simulate the aircraft having been sat in a hangar for a long time while maintenance was being performed. The earlier checklist bug - we're aware of it. It's a background rendering issue, where the checkmark isn't drawn quickly enough until the cursor leaves that subwindow and it stops being redrawn. If you scrolled up again, it would refresh itself and the checkmark would appear. We'll get it sorted soon.

    Enter Holds

    Manually entered holds aren't supported by the underlying Laminar G1000 yet (it was absent from real G1000 software for a surprisingly long time as well). Until Laminar implement this feature, please use the following procedure to flying manual holds instead:
