  1. I guess this is just my computer that's messing things up? At least I only paid a tenner for it. Never mind everything else runs perfectly. Cheers.

    Saab 340 Challenge

    Yes thank you for that. I have uninstalled the 10.45 r2. I have installed the release version 10.42 and the Saab flew as before, with proper torque and performance. So I conclude I had corruption in my 10.45 r2 install. I have no other conclusion here. The new install runs faster than the old one and seems error free. Thank you for your advice

    Saab 340 Challenge

    Well folks. I have uninstalled the 10.45r2, X Plane. Reinstalled X Plane 10.20 release version. The Saab now functions as it did before 10.45r2. I fly consistently. I am trained to do so. Before reinstalling, I flew five take offs with full procedures and checklists. I am fully aware of over torque, this did not happen. CTOT was working...as far as I could tell. However with 10.20 X Plane the aircraft flies as before? Gremlins? Absolutely.....LOL. Or perhaps I require a new monitor or better spectacles! My old eyes arnt what they were. In real life if this happens you can't roll back to a previous release! Best Regards to all. David.
  4. Hello all, Can any Captains with the Saab 340 rating, with the latest X Plane version (beta) v10.45 r2, fly the Saab 340 as before? The challenge, should you choose to accept it, is to take off and climb at medium climb setting (or high if your brave). My tale is that since installing 10.45 r2, my Saab can no longer climb. In fact we can barely reach v1 as before. Turbine Power has been reduced some how? I have re installed my X Plane. Rolling back to the release version 10.42. Which allows the Saab to function as before. I will no longer be participating in the X Plane "beta" upgrade path. Too many upgrades can break previously installed software, in my honest opinion? Anyway, if anyone can fly the Saab as before on 10.45 r2, I stand corrected! Best Regards David

  6. Hi Ben thanks for replying. I have attached the Log.txt and the Gizmolog.txt, as requested. Hope you can see the problem, has me beat! Regards David GizmoLog.txt Log.txt
  7. Yes that works just fine. Now the problem I have is that every time I take off, at exactly the same place "V2 positive climb", my system crashes. X Plane locks up and I have to use Ctrl/Alt/Delete to Task Manager to end the program get back to windows. This has nothing to do with my scenery. I have tried the take off at airports all over the place. Is anyone else having this issue? Its on sale this weekend, so I would be interested to hear? My system is Windows 7 Professional 32 Gb Ram Haswell i7 GTX 980 X Plane 10.45 r2. There is no X PlaneCrash Report generated, the program hasn't got time to make one, since its locked up!! My version of the MU2 v1.6 is buggy! Other aircraft are all ok, so I surmise its not the 10.45 r2 version that's causing trouble. I have put a Ticket in but I guess they are busy with the IXEG? Such a shame, it looks a great simulation. Now I am back to the P3d version of the MU2, which is also lovely! Regards to all, David
  8. Yes thanks again. Read them. I thought perhaps they had modelled the propeller locks, that would produce the negative thrust, but they are not modelled. Unfortunately, there is no way I can release the parking brake. Even with the handle pushed in, the main wheels are locked! The aircraft sim is unflyable in this state. I have tried all ways to release the brakes, but no joy! They are stuck on? I am thinking that this is the simulation error? I will re install it. If anyone else has this issue, please chime in here! Regards David EDIT. Reinstalled it. I can confirm that the park brake now releases. I found that the park brake in the cockpit doesn't work at first. I had to press the "V" key several times to get the brake functioning? I have no idea why. So lets take off now! Erm...I don't think so X Plane Crashed!!!! Well that what you get sometimes Not all software is created equal, or even tested to work properly! Thanks very much for the help Morrigan! Much obliged. Very Best Regards David
  9. Thank you for the reply. I have got the power levers to operate. Seems like you must have engines running before they will have the range of movement. If I may ask a stupid question. Where may I find the manuals/checklist? Also an even more stupid question. I have engines running, Garmin set up with flight plan, permission to taxi...and...the aircraft wont move. Full throttle and nothing! Full reverse and she lurches up ...like the park brake is stuck on..Its not? Thanks again David
  10. I have just purchased the MU2 in the sale. 60% off. The throttles have only half the range. When reversed and re calibrated its the same. The "Prop" levers only have half the range also. X Plane V10.45. All my other X Plane Sims are working correctly. Just the MU2 that's showing this fault! Anyone have any idea what's wrong? Regards David

    FMS and Autopilot

    I will not venture into naming names, but suffice to say whilst eye candy is nice, a fully functioning simulation is my preference. Taking off without hydraulics, unable to escape TOGA lock using proper procedures and MCDU loosing the plot are undesirable characteristics. The evidence from the video is encouraging, the time taken to develop the product is admirable. It appears that the team are perfectionists so they will get my purchase. Regards David

    FMS and Autopilot

    Well put.I had given up on x plane commercial airliners, due to lack of systems modelling, faulty autothrust and MCDU with minimal functionality. Save the lovely eye candy, they are disappointing. Now this 737 really appears to have been created with attention to detail. Looking forward to the release! regards David
  13. My monitor is single Dell Ultra Sharp 2560 x 1440. Set up in XP rendering as ;- Compress textures texture res High frame rate lock to monitor, as refresh rate of monitor run at full screen screen resolution Default Monitor Settings I have reduced my XP rendering settings down to where I see a texture load of 1227Mb (used). Stuff to draw down to default. World detail medium airport detail high 3d on aircraft water default HDR anti aliasing, FXAA Aniso 2x Extended DSF on clouds minimum 10% Skymaxx set at;- Cloud detail minimum Cloud draw distance centre slider Minimum cloud size Max cloud size middle slider Puff rotation minimum God Rays Off Cirrus Med Cirrus texture 2 Force cirrus on Sky colour True Blue Medium Cloud reflections off Solid Strati form Lens flare off Cloud shadows Minimum Terrain Blend softness 1/4 slider from minimum. This resulted in, I got the Skymax down to 752 MB free? (which jumps about, +- 50, BTW!) However, what I don't understand is if we have 4000 (4Gb on a NVidia 980) VRAM, then 4000 - 1227 = 2773? (Available) Where does Skymaxx get the number 752 (Available) from? So far with a short flight over w2xp Europe in the FJ Sim 737, I am stable at about 30 fps. Weather downloaded by FSGRW and the clouds look amazing! I have herd some can run ok with 200 Mb VRAM available, but I just wonder where Skymaxx is obtaining its VRAM number from? I will fly some more and hope XP hold up. Regards David
  14. I concur! I have a new NVidia 980, 4Gb VRAM. I am seeing just 128 MB free after reducing the settings to minimum. By that I mean every slider left and effects off? Something is not correct here?
