    Great pictures again! Long flight, eh? Thanks for posting, Jan

    Looking forward to the next update(IXEG)

    Excellent work, Ben!

    Throttle idle help

    The problem you describe coincides with the autothrottle system taking over control - either as a normal combined mode reversion (i.e. when ALT ACQ becomes active, the autothrottle will automatically engage MCP SPD mode) or due to a alpha-floor reversion (where the autothrottle goes from ARM to MCP SPD to avoid a stall). Once the autothrottle is active (a green mode displayed), you can not control the throttle with your joystick throttle. Cheers, Jan

    Throttle idle help

    I think the solution to your problem is that you are doing something wrong . Look at the instructional videos (or youtube videos of the IXEG out there) to see where you are doing things different from the other thousands of users that don´t have that problem. Happy landings, Jan

    Newbie looking for help

    Also note that in the current (11.26) version of X-Plane you need to pull A LOT to avoid the nose dropping when you get very close to the ground. Watch your pitch very closely and be ready to pull ca. 75% of your yoke travel when about to touch down. This is more than in the real plane but a by-product of some new aerodynamic code we got in one of the recent updates. I have been working with Austin on this and he said that he tweaked the code again for 11.30. So we are waiting for that - along with some other aerodynamic changes 11.30 brings. I will revisit the 737´s flightmodel once 11.30 is out and - if warranted - incorporate some tweaks in an update. Cheers, Jan

    Hi Jean, for the landings - practice, practice, practice . For your SID departure I would have to see a video of what is happening to really be able to help. It should work the way you describe, but there are a few pitfalls that may prevent VNAV engagement (including failure to fill out the PERF INIT page, etc...) Cheers, Jan

    MCP options :)

    We decided against it because the mechanical autopilot engagement paddles are getting "locked in off" everytime the yoke is deflected by a magnetic solenoid - generating a constant clicking noise during manual flight. This would confuse and aggravate the majority of our customers, leading to constant questions and complaints. Cheers, Jan

    Unable to set joysticks

    Yes, I remember that we had our "own" TOGA (and some other) commands - but then we consolidated back to X-Plane default commands where possible. People were confused that the "regular" commands didn´t work on the IXEG. So you are right, it is a bit of a mix. I will be here to help if you get stuck again! Cheers, Jan

    Unable to set joysticks

    Hi Annick, the TOGA command is the regular, default X-Plane command TOGA. So there is no special ixeg custom command for that. Let me know how that goes! Cheers, Jan

    Unable to set joysticks

    Hi Annick, hmm, assuming that the plane runs fine (so we can safely say that the install went ok), just type ixeg into the search window after you click the "edit" button on the joystick button you want to edit. That should bring up the menu of all available ixeg commands. This is what it looks like on my screen: Hope this helps, Jan

    Entering LAT/LON in fmc

    Yes, there is quite a difference between the FMS version we model and the later (current) versions. As RNAV and RNP has gained importance, so has the ability to enter "weird" coordinates. As I said, it was possible to do so in our version as well - but you had to create a temporary waypoint (with 5 characters length) to use it in the FMS. Some pilots would enter "HOME" and then the coordinates of their house, just for kicks, for example. There is also an intricate system to enter straigth (full degrees) coordinates in the way you are trying to do, Ian. But we don´t model that. You can only enter waypoints that are published in the AIRAC. You can check the fix.dat file for available fixes, here is a snippet: 48.000000000 -10.000000000 4810N ENRT EG 48.000000000 -15.000000000 4815N ENRT EG 48.000000000 -20.000000000 4820N ENRT EG 48.000000000 -25.000000000 4825N ENRT EG 48.000000000 -30.000000000 4830N ENRT EG 49.000000000 -9.000000000 4909N ENRT EG 49.000000000 -14.000000000 4914N ENRT EG 49.000000000 -15.000000000 4915N ENRT EG 49.000000000 -20.000000000 4920N ENRT EG 49.000000000 -25.000000000 4925N ENRT EG Cheers, Jan

    License / Deauthorise

    It is normal to have more than one activation on the same computer - the copyright manager "thinks" you have a new computer if something substantial changes on that computer, maybe you put in a new graphics card or it could be as simple as having a major windows operating system upgrade. If that happens the manager thinks "this is a new computer!" and asks you to validate again. You can (as Ben and Cameron said) simply select the oldest activation to FREEZE, because you will never go back to the "old" system. Bom dia, Jan

    Fuel question

    You "CAN" add more fuel in flight - but its a bit of a hack: During flight, go to the "preflight" menu, pick the option "ready to fly" and then set the fuel level according to your taste. Hit "apply and reset". You will now be at the altitude and speed and position you left of, with these ramifications: 1.) Gear will be down, parking brake on 2.) No autopilot or autothrottle on 3.) All information in FMS is lost 4.) Temperature in cabin is ambient (so likely very very cold) - causing a pack trip. 5.) Pressure in cabin is ambient - causing the cabin altitude alert to sound and the pax oxy masks to "drop" (you will get a warning light, but cant see them). You CAN work through these problems and get everything under control again to continue your flight, but it may be more of a hassle than you like. You may want to practice that first! Cheers, Jan
