  1. Take Command! Saab 340A v1.4.1 Update Released!

    Also something I requested a while back, for the same reason, and looking forward to having it! One more thing, while I'm at it. I notice that the GNS 530 "power on" button occasionally makes a "click" sound (which I like because of the audible feedback), but more often than not it makes no sound. Could you please look into this as well? Thanks. XP 10.51, Windows 10
  2. Take Command! Saab 340A v1.4.1 Update Released!

    Thanks for the update Goran. So far as I know, the altimeter issue was reported some time ago, and slated to be fixed in the next update. Also, as I recall, there is a problem with the NAV 2 bearing selector (among perhaps other reported bugs in this and other threads). Oh, and wait: I meant to say above that the altimeter issue (for me) occurs with the cargo variant, not the passenger variant.
  3. Take Command! Saab 340A v1.4.1 Update Released!

    Will we be seeing a 340A update for XP10 any time soon that fixes the bugs introduced in v1.4.1? In particular, the broken pilot's side altimeter in the passenger variant is problematic. I'd be happy with a downloadable patch, if an official update is not on the horizon. Thanks. While I'm at it, I wanted to ask if anyone knows why my 340A cruises in a conspicuously nose-up attitude (looks to me to be about 5-8 degrees). I've tried shifting the center of gravity forward, yet which doesn't seem to help much. For the same reason, this plane can be difficult to land without scraping the tail cone on the pavement (i.e., it always appears to be tail heavy). Maybe this is just the way the plane was designed to fly. But if someone could confirm I would be much obliged.

    Great news; thanks very much.
  5. Saab 340A v1.4.1 error dialog

    Thanks Jim. Can you confirm (or deny) whether this update will be XP10-specific? I hope so, as I have not yet made the leap to XP11, and don't plan to anytime soon.

    Attached are details related to my most recent failure. Log.txt
  7. Saab 340A v1.4.1 error dialog

    Ok, thanks. I'll do as you ask on the next occurrence. I sense that this might have something to do with mouse control. As the last time it happened I simultaneously lost mouse scroll wheel support. This kind of error dialog also sometimes appears when I monkey with the CRS-2 knob (though I read that this may be a known problem).
  8. Saab 340A v1.4.1 error dialog

    I've been pretty routinely seeing the error dialog below, typically at the end of a flight. Any ideas? (if necessary, I'll provide my XP log file next time this occurs, but in the meantime...???) LES Saab 340A v1.4.1, XP 10.51, Windows 10
  9. SMP v4.5 Storm Clouds

    Fair enough, and thanks for your reply.
  10. SMP v4.5 Storm Clouds

    This is somewhat of a nit, but I've meaning to ask why (or at least in my experience) storm/rain clouds often appear so small, and isolated? Specifically, I will often see a storm cloud against the backdrop of an otherwise crystal blue sky, yet which looks more like part of a small forest fire (see image below). I wonder if you couldn't somehow just artificially stretch out the cloud coverage in these situations to make it appear more realistic... Thanks in advance for considering the matter. SMP v4.5 (+RWC, +NOAA Weather), XP 10.51
  11. SkyMaxx Pro v4.5 Has Been Released

    As mentioned, I have noticed this problem (so far) only at KPHX (Phoenix AZ, MisterX6 scenery) and KTUS (Tuscon AZ). I tried again last night (both airports) and had no similar problems. However, the weather/cloud layer was also different (don't know if that matters). For now, I'll just write this off as a scenery issue and report back should it reoccur (if it does, I will be sure to immediately re-test with all third-party addons disabled). But thanks again, all the same, for your support.
  12. SkyMaxx Pro v4.5 Has Been Released

    Okay, thanks--if all else fails, I'll give this a try. Also, and perhaps importantly, I neglected to mention earlier that these gaps in cloud rendering (e.g., as shown in the image above) go away by adjusting my camera view ever so slightly (e.g., by panning up/down, or left/right, with my mouse). In other words, the anomaly is visible only from certain viewing angles. Don't know if this is indicative of a culprit, but seems worth mentioning.
  13. SkyMaxx Pro v4.5 Has Been Released

    Thanks for your reply. I have no idea what's causing the problem. I have HDR on, and XP rendering settings are nearly maxed out. I'm running an NVidia GT755M (2GB) graphics card with the latest drivers; not top-of-the line, but in my 3+ years of using it with XP 10 and SMP I've never experienced anything like this (not even in the 3 months or so since the last SMP update). If I have time this evening I will attempt to reproduce and attach the log file (my post here was just a first crack to see if this is a known problem with perhaps a known solution).
  14. SkyMaxx Pro v4.5 Has Been Released

    Any idea what's going on here? (see below). Image taken at KPHX, and I've only noticed this problem (so far) in Arizona (also at KTUS). SMP v4.5, NOAA, RWC, XP 10.51.
  15. Some bugs? V1.4

    That's fine as long as I can eventually do this via key command; otherwise it's kind of distracting after touchdown trying to find and set the 3D tiller control (I'm all for realism in XP, but not at the cost of usability/safety to my passengers I misspoke here; I have the throttle levers mapped to an axis, but use two spare buttons for prop control (forward-a-bit/back-a-bit) on all my other payware aircraft. I am again unclear as to why assigning prop control to an axis should be the case. But having the button option is important because I don't have a super-fancy joystick with endless amounts of axis controls -- it has only enough axes to control the flight surfaces (pitch/roll/yaw) plus throttle. In any case, not a huge deal as on the 340 I've grown accustomed to doing this manually (using the mouse/3D levers). Thanks for your reply.
