    Not transparent square on the window

    Thanks for the heads-up. I will try again on my side (also running b7)... Cheers, Jan

    Cockpit disappeared!!!

    Turn off the option "show vertices" in the IXEG side-bar menu. Cheers, Jan
  3. Hmm, if you are really running "vanilla" (no 3rd party except the IXEG) X-Plane 11.26 and still have that problem then I can´t give you any advice, either - except to doublecheck if you are really running without any 3rd party changes or plugins affecting your X-Plane installation. It is sometimes surprisingly hard to really remove or disable some artwork hacks. If that is not the case, then - since you are the only customer suffering this effect - it is probably in order to start thinking about a hardware malfunction or the like... Cheers, Jan

    Interesting...

    A good point - but one we have considered thoroughly! The real flight-controls in a Boeing (and any airliner) will only move so fast - the hydraulics can´t move them as fast as a pilot could throw around the control wheel/sidestick. In Boeing aircraft (at least the ones I flew) the flight-control inputs are connected proportionally to the flight-control surfaces. This means that you can only move the wheel as fast as the controls move. This is great, because the pilot always FEELS what the current displacement of the flight-controls is like - very important in windy/gusty situations where overcontrolling is a real threat. Airbus does it differently - here you can throw around the sidestick pretty much as fast as you want, with the flight-controls lagging behind (and the computer in normal law also messing with you). Thats why Airbus aircraft are (in my humble and personal opinion) a nightmare to fly in gusty crosswinds. Sorry, Tolouse. For the IXEG we have the same problem - the user can throw the joystick from side to side in 0.2 seconds, while the flight-controls take a lot longer. So we had a choice to make - but if we made the flight-controls stay in sync with the joystick (which leads to better control), we would have had unrealistic roll (and pitch) rates - which is a no-go! So until we all get force-feedback hardware inputs, it´s just something we have to live with. But rest assured that the plane rolls as quick as in real life. Cheers, Jan

    Taxi turns stall

    Hehe, cool story! You have to be careful with the units when you go to places where they are still confused about the correct units to use for weights, distances etc (like the U.S.) . But normally the FMS and airplane gauges are set to use one unit only, the only problem could be when telling the fueltruck guy that you want 8000kgs and he doesn´t listen (or know what kg´s are...) and fuels 8000lbs, only. But then rule #1 applies, and those 8000lbs would show as 3600kgs in your fuel gauges. By the way, the conversion factor is 2.2 - so 2.2lbs are 1 kg. There was a spaceship lost because the braniacs at NASA confused some units once, iirc. Cheers, Jan

    Flickering Textures - IXEG 733 - XP11.30b4

    They are those whitish smokey things (condensation in low pressure areas) that trail off of the wingtips or edges of landing flaps on very moist/humid days. Layman often think that the airplanes "dump fuel prior to landing" when they see them. Cheers, Jan

    Thrust Reverser

    Hi, you can not "grab" the reversers with the mouse. You need to use the X-Plane command "toggle thrust reverse". This only works if the throttles are at idle (just like in the real plane). Once the thrust reversers are toggled to "on" your joystick throttle will now move the thrust reversers... Cheers, Jan PS: You CAN grab the "normal" throttles with the mouse - this is not really used to "fly" the aircraft, but more to be able to retard a single thrust lever in case of an engine failure or to advance it when you do a crossbleed start. To regain control of both levers just move the other lever (with the joystick) until they are in sync again.

    Not transparent square on the window

    Try to disable the "show vortices" option in the IXEG preferences menu (pops out left side of screen) - this may help! Cheers, Jan

    Not transparent square on the window

    Hello Rys, thanks for the nice words - it looks like you are missing a decal there (a transparent texture that adds some detail to the window). This could be due to some reasons, which you will have to test one by one to identify: 1.) Possibly conflict with plugins - to identify disable the plugins and re-test. 2.) Possible effect of running a beta of X-Plane (like the current 11.30 beta) 3.) Another third-party program changing art controls in X-Plane. 4.) A side-effect of running the option "show vertices" in the IXEG preferences menu. This option should always be disabled, it is outdated and does not work well anymore with the current version of X-Plane. Let me know how it goes! Cheers, Jan PS: I deleted your redundant post in the "Flight operations" forum.
  12. Hi Vespa, the stall warning not playing with the test buttons is a bug - it is already fixed for the next release (whenever that may be)... The fuel gauge test should run - but you need to press the button for more than 3 seconds (like in the real plane). Cheers, Jan

    Passenger seat

    Ermm, why don´t you just open the cockpit door, move the pilots view into the cabin and in the right spot, then hit CTRL-Numpad key to save it? Cheers, Jan

    High engine oil temp?

    No. Just disregard the high oil temperature for now - I will personally guarantee that the engines of the IXEG 737 do not take damage from that. Cheers, Jan
