  1. Key and Joystick commands not visible.

    Spooky, As you can see in your screenshot, if you hover the mouse over the area you can see the command appear. This problem comes from the way I coded the commands before the new XP v11 UI was available. We won't be changing this for the current version of the Saab, but it will get fixed in v2. Use the mouse hover technique until v2 is available,
  2. XP10 Cannot use CRS/HDG/GPS knobs etc

    SilentV, Are you sure you have version 1.4.1 of the Saab? Your log files show that you have an older version.
  3. Strings on 3D panel

    in Gizmo, "OnDraw_gauges_3D" tells X-Plane what phase you want to draw in. So, in C/C++, an equivalent would be XPLMDrawingPhase = xplm_Phase_Gauges as Ben described above. Phases in the SDK are defined here.
  4. XP 11.11 - how to assign the Condition levers?

    From the 1.4 release notes... Condition Lever Joystick assignment has been redesigned. Users can now simply assign their joystick(s) to “prop1” for the left condition lever and to “prop2” for the right condition lever.
  5. Strings on 3D panel

    SHJ, Please take Ben's answer as "words of wisdom". You will save yourself a TON of grief if you just use Gizmo. I respect your wishes to learn C/C++, but it will drive you mad!
  6. Float ARRAY custom dataref in PlaneMaker

    Try this.. DataRefs.txt You had a blank line in the file before your custom DataRef, which I think was causing the problem. However, you also you had "spaces" between the data fields which should be one "tab" only.
  7. Float ARRAY custom dataref in PlaneMaker

    I have doe this many times without any crashing of the sim. Post the "amended" DataRefs.txt file here and let I will take a look at it.
  8. Float ARRAY custom dataref in PlaneMaker

    Plane Maker looks at the Datarefs.txt file for it's info regarding arrays. If you (temporarily) add your custom dataref to the Datarefs.txt file, Plane Maker will be happy. Keep in mind that the next time you update X-Plane the Datarefs.txt file will be overwritten and your changes will be gone, but as long as you DON'T make changes in PM to that instrument after that it won't matter. If you do need to change that particular instrument you will need to update the Datarefs.txt file again. There is an outstanding bug filed with Laminar to (hopefully) address this.
  9. X-Plane 11

    I suggest you wait for the v11 compatibility patch. And, in the future when reporting problems, please post your Log.txt and GizmoLog.txt files.
  10. Autopilot stopped working in 11.10r1

    I appreciate the input, but we have already considered the gyros.
  11. Autopilot stopped working in 11.10r1

    There is no quick fix. We believe something changed in the sim in v11.10b8 that is causing this issue, but we have not been able to determine what the problem is yet.
  12. XP10 Cannot use CRS/HDG/GPS knobs etc

    Your GizmoLog.txt shows an error when scrolling the OBS2 dial. This should have been displayed in the console window in red text when it occurred. I am unable to recreate this error. If you can consistently recreate this, please post the exact steps to do so. Also, please advise what your frame rates are when running the Saab.
  13. XP10 Cannot use CRS/HDG/GPS knobs etc

    Please post your Log.txt and GizmoLog.txt files.
  14. Xplane 11?

    Your assessment of what may be causing the autopilot issue is far too simplistic. X-Plane has a LOT of interaction between systems, and the Saab is highly modified to provide even MORE realism. X-Plane v11.10 may technically be considered a minor version but it was definitely not minor in regard to the flight model changes. There were a significant number of changes made by Austin to the engine model and in moving to more vector based math for the flight model. Interestingly, as far as I know, there were NO changes made to the autopilot system. So,the autopilot issues have be related to another system that is interacting with the autopilot. Debugging these types of things can be rather complex and it takes time. Creating a completely custom autopilot would be a MAJOR undertaking and completely unneccessary as everything was working fine in 11.05 (as you stated). in developing aircraft it is much smarter to stay as close to the default systems as possible if they can provide a realistic simulation of a particular aircraft. It reduces the number of things that can go wrong with each X-Plane update. Personally, I would much rather have a situation where we are getting an updated and improved flight simulator on a consistent basis rather than one where changes are not made just because something might "break". Even the default aircraft have to be modified when flight model changes are made, it just comes with the territory. Let's be patient and not jump to any conclusions. We will get this sorted out.
  15. Cant set course for GPS.

    The OBS functionality was described in the release notes that came with v1.4. Please refer to this post for more information about the OBS and how to operate this properly.
