    Hi harryh146, Glad to hear you are ecstatic. I am not if you still need help with the tweaks. If the aircraft is flyable for you, you better not change anything. However if you sill need the tweaks, I created a post describing them here: Cheers, Chris
  3. Hey guys, I have the fabulous 737 from IXEG working in XP11. Because this plane is not officially supported in XP 11 yet, I had to do a few tweeks to get the bird flying. I see a lot of people, asking the same questions in this regard here. What I'd like to do with this post, is to help people who would like to use the 737 in XP 11, by providing a single post with all the required steps so that people don't have to search that much. So, here we go: Installation Install XP 11 as you like by using the X-Plane 11 Installer.exe Install the IXEG by using the windows-installer.exe that comes with the download Specify your XPlane 11 (not 10!) root folder when asked by the IXEG installer When this is done you may, or may not be able to already fly the plane without further tweaking. However, I wasn't and here are the two tweaks I did. Fixing APU not starting and plane not correctly responding to thrust problems Make a backup of the file B733.acf under X-Plane11\Aircraft\X-Aviation\IXEG 737 Classic In your XP11 root folder, open PlaneMaker.exe Select File -> Open and find the file B733.acf under X-Plane11\Aircraft\X-Aviation\IXEG 737 Classic Select Standard -> Systems Navigate to the Electrical tab Check the following APU Checkboxs: auxiliary power unit (APU) APU provides bleed air for engine start APU provides generator for electrical supply Close the View with X (Note: Close the view, not the program) Select Standard -> Engine Specs Select the Description tab Set hi idle fuel adjustment to 1.16 (fuel ratio) Set lo idle fuel adjustment to 0.88 (fuel ratio) Close the View with X (Note: Close the view, not the program) Select File -> Save Quit PlaneMaker.exe And that's it. Go have a good time flying this beauty :-) For the sake of completeness: I use Windows 7 Home Premium (Version 6.1; Build 7601: Service Pack 1) X-Plane 11.01r2 IXEG 737 1.0.7 No other add ons Cheers, Chris

    Harry: In order to use the IXEG in XP11 you will have to perform some fixes using the PlaneMaker.exe (I think that's what its called) that comes with XP. The fixes are related APU not starting and asymetric Engine thrust. I am in a hurry right now, so I can't explain in detail. Please try searching this forum. The fixes I am talking about are described in detail there. If you can't make that work, I am willing to provide detailed info later that day. Regards, Chris
  5. Autopilot disconnect joystick throttle don't function

    Hi Lorenzo, Did you know, that you need to "capture" the throttle when turning AT off? To do so do the following: If the throttle setting in the sim is "higher" than the throttle setting on your joystick, you have to move the throttle forward, beyond the actual settings in the sim. This will cause the throttle in the sim to be "captured" and your joystick throttle will work correct from then on. See this video from Jan for further explanation: Cheers, Chris
