    Cannot taxi - nosewheel steering inoperative

    Thanks so much. That should do it. I've tried the nws toggle before with no luck. For some reason that doesn't work with this plane. But the LES /CMD/Gear: toggle for "tiller_hyd_on_off." Should work i would think. Thanks for the illustrations I'll take a look today. And i'l let you know if that worked. Edit: The search for tiller_hyd worked like a charm. Thanks Dave.

    Cannot taxi - nosewheel steering inoperative

    Thanks. So I've found the "LES/CMD" area in settings. But none of the choices has either NWS or Steer or the like. When you get a moment can you ascertain the exact path for this command. Will be of much help. Thanks. Dave

    Cannot taxi - nosewheel steering inoperative

    Thanks. How do I find that? In settings I searched the words Les, Saab and Steer with no results that fit this.

    Cannot taxi - nosewheel steering inoperative

    Hopefully we will be able to bind a button on our hardware to activate the NWS. Right now, upon landing I have to take my eyes off of the runway and look for the NWS. The trick is to grab it and drag the mouse down to activate it. But this really takes your attention away from the runway. And after landing in a crosswind it would make things so much easier to just push a button on my controllers to allow my attention to remain on what's going on outside the window and not inside the cockpit at 100 knots lol.
  5. First off let me say that i fly a lot of various models in XP. And i have to admit that this airplane is the most fun airplane for me. The sounds and attention to detail is just wonderful. Ok my question is more of a procedural question. Is there really a point in resetting the bleeds and turning on both recirculating fans to supply air conditioning to the passenger compartment prior to engine start? Sure you can certainly get some air moving around but the air won't actually cool until after engine start right? I see in several YouTube videos people turn on those fans befor start then again after start they reset the bleeds. I don't see the reasoning behind this, unless it has something to do with the actual starting of the engines. I've been just waiting until after start to turn on the fans and bleeds seams to start ok without them on. For realism I'd like to know how it's done in real world settings. 2nd question: I've searched the forums without locating an answer... Is there a way to bind the flaps to an axis control? Right now I'm having to use the 3d handle in the cockpit. No biggy if it can't be done. Thanks, Dave

    Saab 340A ICAO identifier

    Just ran a flight through. Although NOT very good at flying her yet lol. But everything seams to be working as advertised. Thanks for the quick responses, much appreciated. Dave.

    Saab 340A ICAO identifier

    Thanks @JGregory . I'll give that a try. That will likely do the trick. I'm about to try my first flight here in a few minutes. What is your opinion on the saving the ICAO within plane maker.. Do you think all systems are going to be ok, or would you recommend I install from scratch and edit the ACF file? I personally think if you have recently saved this AC within plane maker, then me saving the ICAO should make no difference. Thanks.

    Saab 340A ICAO identifier

    Thank you. @mgeissAnd yes thinking i should of done that to begin with. Do you think i should uninstall and then reinstall from scratch? Well i guess I could just attempt a flight first and see how it behaves. Maybe a Developer can shed some light on this. Even if it flys right i might of messed up some systems? Dave

    Saab 340A ICAO identifier

    I literally dowoaded and installed tonight. I already had an axis set up in XP for "prop". I also attemtpted "condition" as stated in settings. Neither prop nor condition will move the prop levers. Same with flaps. But thanks for quick reply and attempt to help.

    Saab 340A ICAO identifier

    So I just purchased this aircraft today. So far I really like the AC. I've been testing systems and have not actually got off the ground yet. During my testing, I attempted to log into the Pilot Edge Network for ATC. However their plugin requires the AC have an assigned ICAO. I have ran into this before with other AC and so I knew how to fix it. By going into plane maker, then in the standard/Author menu I entered the ICAO of "SF34" I then saved the file. I was then able to log into PE and was heard loud and clear. So please add this identifier for others who may not know how to use plane maker to fix that. Also I really hope I didn't mess with the flight physics by saving the ACF file in plane maker which "opt in" to the XP.20 physics. I can only assume your updated 1,5 version has already been saved with the most current version of XP. Anyway, I guess I'll find out when I get in the air. Thanks. Edit to add question: Quick question. The throttle is bound by default XP settings. However the Prop is not. I see in the instructions to look for the blue I think star button to assign the axis for the Collective / props. This button is not included on the list of icons on the right pane of the window. Therefore I am unable to bind the Prop to my slider. Same thing with the Flaps. I have Flaps assigned via XP settings to a Axis lever on my throttle quad. I'm guessing these two axis are only available via your coding in your plugin. So XP settings will not make a difference. Interesting, that you aloud the throttle but not the prop.... Dave.

    GNS530 not working.

    I just purchased the plane today. When I turned on the avion's the GPS did not power up. Every other XP AC does. So I was stumped, till I searched and found a forum here which states that you have to actually turn the knob with the C on it to manually turn it on. Then click ENT after it warms up. I run WIN 10. So hopefully your just not rotating the knob too. Dave

    SkyMaxx Pro v4.6 Has Been Released

    Thanks Cameron for the suggestion. I will tinker with the settings. Didn't know there was an independent control for that. I'll take a closer look. i will let you know how it works out. in the mean time. I'm very curious about the storm cells moving. i litterly watched this storm cell with lighting in it move from right to left. started with it directly in front. by the time i pushed it was over to the left side window. is the real weather connector actually tracking this storm? I'm probably sounding naive. So the cell is moving in real time? Like some mornings in SFO I'll also see fog banks litterly roll through the airfield. One second you can't see the next you can. so this is not a complaint. I'm just curious how it is done. Thanks, Chase.

    SkyMaxx Pro v4.6 Has Been Released

    Hello Cameron. I'm going to take advantage of this thread being you are very active with replying. I have a question partaining to your product. I have both real weather connector and skymax pro. I have no other weather program. I enjoy the environment your program presents. My question is partaining to overcast / stormy days. With default xplane weather you have a total overcast sky. But with your program you see blue skies even with thunder storms. I do see the cell of storms moving which by the way is super cool. But you look up and you may have a few white puffy clouds but will always see blue skies. Your program does a good job anywhere else if your flying you will not see the ground. So only when on the tarmac. Is this something your aware of? Is there a setting that I'd have to change? will a future patch improve this? I use your stock settings and get pretty good frames. I only have a 970 card so i am a bit limited. I figured I'd turn this thread about answering questions into actually answering questions lol. Thanks. Chase.
