    CTD with X-Plane 11.31rc1 and TBM 1.1.4b

    Hi Goran, sympathies, This clearly is a dilemma for HotStart and for developers in general. It has a kind of bad practice, bad smell to it. 1. The obvious answer, to me at least, is for LM to make available previous release versions in unusual / special situations. If they are indeed secure enough to be that flexible. 2. They rejig to work more closely with developers. In concert even. Or least be less gung-ho about beta updates that offer minor or dubious 'improvements' but in fact prove to be destructive. 3. They put a mature, experienced businessman man on the board who doesn't think like a 'boy'. No offence intended - at 76 I still often think like a boy. Goal being to review their development model and perhaps some other things. Personally, I am grateful for this hiccup as it has prompted me to try using my GTN 750. So far so good, though I gather there may be limitations. Also it has reminded me of the wisdom of saving a working XP release in the future, as a contingency measure. Regards

    The TBM, CTD's and XP 11.32

    Goran you're a gentleman and 'well said' RobertC. This plane is the cat's pyjamas. Looking forward to the fix.

    Cabin lights - not working for me

    Thank you Goran. Still running 4b. It's fine. Is there a note as to what was changed, or needn't we be concerned?

    Cabin lights - not working for me

    Thanks boredtechie ... Using the Access lights then a couple of the ceiling lights works fine for me! As for the HUD I am familiar with the one you mentioned but there are a couple of pics in another TBM thread showing a regular Boeing style HUD. I'll try and find it again in case I got the wrong of the stick. Lastly I just installed the very latest update 1.1.4b. Two updates in two days? No supporting release notes. Yet. My FPS have dropped noticeably. I'll run a clean check in the morning and may revert to 1.1.4. Cheers

    Cabin lights - not working for me

    Interesting thread so far. But I always have HDR active yet the cabin lights make no discernible difference to cabin visibility or operability. The roof light comes on so I assume it must be operational as designed The access light does help. I have checked for damage and all is AOK in the lighting maintenance section. Trouble is I seem to be forever tweaking the NVidia Desktop Colour Settings to find a happy marriage between internal and external (scenery) lighting. Even in daylight it's an issue for me to get a really clear and clear view of the panel. Thank goodness for the pop-ups. Except early and late afternoon flights when the low sun provides more than enough natural light to show up the panel in all its texture and colour glory. I see one forum member showing off the HUD! I have no idea how he did that, can someone help? Apologies if I just plain missed it in the docs. In the same vein, is there any formal guidance as to the correct use of the small pop-up device on the glareshield? Through usage I've seen that a single green seems to indicate you're pretty much 'on the money' in the approach. But perhaps there more to it? This is such a brilliant sim. Up with the best if not the best I've come across. Support likewise. Many thanks to all concerned for this classic. Not having being a lover of the pre-GTN Garmin units (too tricky for me in a sim, which as many of us know, is a darn sight harder to fly than the real thing.) Still, in this case, it has been a privilege getting to grips with the G1000 manipulation protocols so as to be able to operate this thing. A bit frustrating getting my head around the places where the HotStart G1000 might deviate from the real aircraft (as described in the huge Published TBM Garmin Guide). Trial and error, contributed videos and coffee were all a great help. Long shot. Is there such a thing as Hotstart G1000 idiots guide or list of tips? Maybe someone has recorded such a thing for their own use that they might care to share? Then again, the number of departures from the real one may be too few to bother. Regards

    TBM 900 v1.1.1 Update Released!

    Just getting to grips with this amazing, complex a/c simulation ... not for the fainthearted. At moment seeking to optimise quick and easy access to key controls. In this regard I echo sd-flyer's comment re cursor disappearing over (autopilot) popup. I'm confident a fix will be in the pipeline. Best money I ever spent on an X-plane. Well neck and neck with the Classic 733 anyway :-)

    Throttle Click Spot Issue

    I'm glad I stumbled across this thread, throttle control has been a major source of frustration. I can now control the throttle much better on the ground. Now I recognise the audible click, can move the Saitek X52 throttle forward to capture the graphic, and then back to the stop but i wont then jet me move it backwards into the feather/reverse range. I may be missing the 'lockout'? Is there a click-spot to release that? Thanks in advance!

    iGoDispatch for IXEG's Boeing-733

    'You pays your money and you takes your choice.' I purchased it to speed up the flight-planning process in the IXEG FMC which I have found to be a bottleneck. Maybe I'll use it a lot maybe I won't. Hardly tried it yet. Goodness, it' only cost loose change, and in the end it's only a game. I know a bit about planes. Retired now but did my early training in the RAF in the UK. That wasn't a game of course. I also completed a 10-week CPL course at the College of Air Training in Motueka, New Zealand. Speaking of New Zealand I know of no kiwi airfield NZWW. But, being curious I did find a reference to New Zealand Womans' Weekly. Regards.

    iGoDispatch for IXEG's Boeing-733

    Greetings all. I was delighted to discover the iGoDespatch utility today. Installed it along with the latest IXEG plugin 2.30.6. All appears ok thus far except I can't work out how to map it to Navigraph AIRAC (updated yesterday to 1809/R1.) Could someone kindly put me right? I haven't got around to other fine points such as setting TCP but will once I get the AIRACs to sync. Great looking tool, well done, can't wait to get seriously into it. Regards

    1.21 Gatekeeper Gizmo issue

    Many thanks, good enough for me! Cheers, Gareth

    1.21 Gatekeeper Gizmo issue

    Hi Jan, Indeed, no problem if the IXEG is the first a/c loaded in a given session. Only if I switch from another plane to the IXEG in the same session do I get the anomalies. To be sure, it's a minor irritation but confident you'll solve. In case it helps, my XP 11 / IXEG installation resides on a dedicated SSD immune from potential contamination by lesser programs ;-) Best, Gareth

    1.21 Gatekeeper Gizmo issue

    I steer clear of the betas these days and still use XP 11.11. I don't have click-spot issue, but I do get the same XEG load-up problem: error window showing some lua issue; back of pilots head; scrambled instruments on engine panel. Again, it's fine if it's 1st flight of the day ... So for me the load-up bug remains. It has led me to reinstall the IXEG 3 times, and always appears as 'problem solved' of course, since for testing purposes you go straight to the offending a/c and don't go off for a casual spin in say the Carenado B58/REP. My apologies btw for the use of the term 'offending' in connection with the IXEG. Please do not bar me from the forum ;-) Best, Gareth
  13. For any who might be interested the problem is solved. It was due to corruption in my IXEG install. Automatic reinstalling didn't fix it. I had to manually remove it from my drive and do a clean install. Win 10 may well have caused it. Who knows.
  14. As the attached log explains the UDP network failed to initialise. You will no doubt find other things as well! No second copy of XP was running. I reinstalled the IXEG and it accepted the licence Many thanks for your helpful reply log.docx
  15. Greetings all, this one's for Litjan I guess. I hope! My PC was subjected to a ferocious Win64 update this morning. Too soon to pass judgement on that, but a few issues did appear straightaway with the IXEG B374. Btw, it has run like a Swiss watch until now. 1. the 'clockwork' engine gauges. Overlaps / duplication / distortion in VC panel 2. Not a problem but two 'zombie' pilots <grin> suddenly appeared at the controls. (Never knew it was an option). 3. all auto slide-out panels left of screen inop. I use a freshly installed copy of the IXEG, the latest nVidia driver for GTX 780 3Gb, 24Gb RAM, X-Plane 11.11 r1. Just me, or an update bug? I suspect the latter. Either way, hopeful of a solution. Regards
