  1. I messed around with the sound settings, and also tried the setting you posted, but still get the same behavior. I spoke too soon. I can't park v1.9 in the hangar.....LOL. It's too much fun to fly, and is my favorite non-airliner prop. For now, I'm just turning the master volume down. The MU2 is a beast to slow down. You certainly have the inside scoop on how the real one flies, but I wish there was just a bit more drag at lower power settings. Is it really that slick, and hard to slow down, even in level flight? There's a real satisfaction though, in getting it configured for landing, staying within published limits for gear, flaps, and even landing lights extension, and bring it in, over the fence at 110-105kts, and then greasing it on. Loads of fun for sure. Thanks for the continued work on it. Tim
  2. Glad it's not just me. I've noticed too that sometimes one goes to full max sound, and the other stays as is, and other times one goes to full minimum, while the other one goes to full maximum. I'm being intentionally vague here without identifying whether it's happening with the exterior or the interior sound slider, because it's randomly happening to both. There is no trend. Unfortunately, this is a no go for me, and she's going back into the hangar for now. It's too irritating to have to keep going into the main sound menu and fix this everytime you look at an exterior view. Tim
  3. When I switch to an exterior view, my sound levels get changed. Either the 'exterior sound' or the 'interior sound' slider goes to maximum. Seems random which one blows out to max. I then have to go into the X-Plane sound settings and reset them to my preferred level. The next time I go to an exterior view, one of the sounds maxes out again. Tim
  4. Well, this was a very pleasant surprise! I've got a 4 day weekend starting today. This never works out this way for me. My wife is just going to have to deal with it....LOL. Tim

    Problems with MU-2 v1.8 on xp11

    Really? What's more important? A tin can with a few humans racing around the earth at 17,000mph, or a pretend airplane? Priorities man, priorities!
  6. That is very helpful. So it is needed for the AP to fly the couse, and the closer the course is set to the published course, the better. And if you are hand flying, then course setting doesn't matter, and you will still be able to follow the raw data of the localizer and glide slope in the form of the magenta diamonds. The reason I ask is I was watching a streamer who has a basic understanding of flying IFR, and he forgot to set the course for the ILS. Upon LNAV intercepting the localizer, the AP then proceeded to turn away from the localizer. He had the approach course dialed 150 degrees off of the correct course, so it got me thinking about "modern" AP's, FMC's, and PFD's, with regard to the raw data of a simple VHF receiver and pilot controlled OBS knob. Tim
  7. This is more of a developer/Jan question; In a simple aircraft with, say, a BendixKing KX-155, dialing in the localizer frequency will allow you to track the localizer, regardless of how you have the OBS set. In other words, if the ILS front course is 275 degrees, even if you have the OBS set to 010, the KX-155 will still track the localizer, and the needle will center when you fly the correct heading. The rotating OBS setting means nothing to the receiver, and is irrelevant. My question is this. In the IXEG 737-300, what role does the course setting on the MCP play? If I have the correct localizer frequency tuned in the VHF radio, does the course setting in the MCP have any relevance, or is it just a reminder to you what the published course is? If the published front course has to be dialed in, how far can you deviate from the published course for the A/P to still track the front course? Is there a front course + or - a certain number of degrees wiggle room for the A/P to capture and track? Tim
  8. That's good to hear. So if I download and install the update, I won't have to fiddle with Gizmo? Tim
  9. What are autopilot modules?
  10. I downloaded the installer this morning, and was so close to updating, but didn't. I think I'll stay with 1.2 for now. I hate self inflicted computer issues......LOL Tim
  11. Sounds like you need more beta testers who are more representative of the community, and run multiple plugins. Of course there's no way to identify every conflict, but a general issue like "a lot of plugins" would be easily caught. Tim
  12. Hey, that is pretty slick! The developers are going to hate it, since they've held fast to no pop outs, not even the FMS, saying it destroys the immersion. I like that script a lot. Nice work. Even though I'm at work, I just snagged it, in case they remove it....LOL!! Tim

    Steep Descent with LVL CHG

    What's this VNAV you speak of.....LOL. Flight sims are already nothing more than button pushing simulations. For me personally, I use LNAV, and the MCP for forward velocity, and vertical velocity. The funny thing is there has never, and I mean never, been an add-on aircraft that has been developed, that flys an acceptable VNAV profile. That's why I don't get whipped up over the VNAV shortcomings of every add-on. Tim

    Saab V1.5 Status

    Looks good. I'm 99% sure this is my next purchase once 1.5 is released, and I can see some youtube reviews. To the AP issue: It seems that the oscillation, or porpoising at altitude, is an XP11 "feature" at this time. That issue has cropped up in other aircraft too, so it may not be the SAAB's fault. When you are satisfied with the progress, and send it to the store, will you be publishing a change log so we (as in prospective buyers...) can see what was done to make the XP10 version, a XP11 version? Tim
  15. Funny stuff right there. I'm glad you are giving a choice on the throttle and beta behavior. That is appreciated. Looking forward to the improvements. I really enjoy this bird. It's become my go to GA aircraft when I don't want to jump in an airliner. Tim
