    Can’t retract landing gear

    Hmm, I am really not sure what is going on there. The gear and speedbrakes work with the default X-Plane controls. Make sure you don´t have any third-party code (fly with lua, etc.) messing with things... Cheers, Jan

    Stall Warning Test problems

    Hi Volvic, sorry for the late reply. The stall warning test not working on the ground was fixed in April 2018 - it may have been to late for 1.21, but possibly included in a small "ninja patch" that fixed the aircraft having wrong drag in XP10. You may want to re-download the latest version (1.21) and see if that fixes that... Cheers, Jan

    Wing Flex watch from min 6.00

    Thank you for supporting our point. The wing is barely flexing, this is validating our design choice of not implementing wingflex . Cheers, Jan

    IXEG 737 unable to run it

    Thanks for helping out, Iain. I have no idea what the problem with the OP´s report is, so I didn´t offer any advice. Afaik it doesn´t happen if you install the 737 normally... Cheers, Jan
  5. Thank you very much (again!) mmerelles! Jan
  6. Can someone chime in on this? I have never used simbrief, so I have no idea how to go about that... Thanks, Jan
  7. Hi Werner, while your fix may certainly get rid of the "erroneous" water spray from X-Enviro, it will also disable the spray/dust effects you would rightfully get when operating the 737 over wet or dusty surfaces. I consider it a bit of a rough remedy. I am not sure why X-enviro is having this effect - unlike "everyone" I don´t have it installed . You could also turn off your engines - this would also get rid of the effect . Cheers, Jan

    crashing to desktop

    Hmm, this is weird - have you added any Orthophotos to X-Plane? HD scenery? 32GB of memory is really a lot, so I could only see extensive use of Orthophotos really exceeding that. Cheers, Jan
  9. Hi mrene, I haven´t heard of that one before - but you MAY have activated some sort of Mac feature where the mouse "jumps and sticks" to an input field or such. I don´t have a Mac myself (I am a gamer ), so I can´t really provide any further insight. Just think I heard of a feature like that in Windows... Cheers, Jan

    VR Yoke

    Yes, I agree - we are on the brink of VR becoming useable without too many restrictions. I totally believe that it is the future and in a few years the majority of users will fly only in VR. What is still needed to make the breakthrough, in my opinion: affordable headsets, wireless, good FOV, excellent resolution, comfortable to wear for hours CPU´s to fire these headsets at a good FR without significant loss in visual quality (i.e. not pulling all sliders left) - note: Vulcan will not fix that! sensory gloves to be really able to manipulate the virtual cockpit in a realistic fashion For now it *can* be done, but there are always compromises to make - so many that still most of us prefer to use a screen, especially for airliner flight. Cheers, Jan

    VR Yoke

    Hi Marc, we haven´t added genuine VR support to our aircraft yet. Most things work "out of the box", but there is no VR file for it. My personal rationale about this is that it is not really possible to use an airliner in VR yet (either the resolution is too low to read stuff or the framerate is too low when you run a PIMAX or the like...). Lets give it another year or two for that. In addition I think that any user serious enough to want to fly a 737 probably has hardware yoke/joystick/rudders. And my personal preference and suggestion is to use those for VR flying, too. Did you try holding the controller in another way (more centered, or tilted even more to the right) BEFORE grabbing the yoke - so that the "nullpoint" may be in a different orientation? Cheers, Jan
  12. Ok, then I am out of ideas. You are the only one out of several thousand users reporting this problem, so I assume it is something unique to your setup. I would suggest removing all add-ons, third-party content and plugins and checking again with a vanilla X-Plane installation. If that runs ok, add your addons in again to find out which one is causing the problem. Other than that I have no suggestions. Cheers, Jan
  13. Yes, that is what I meant. Hmm, can you try at another airport? Maybe there is something wrong with the authoring and your aircraft thinks it sits on a dusty surface - this will also cause smoke/dust like that. Jan

    FPS drops to >1 when using the FMC in a flight

    Glad its working good for you now! Cheers, Jan
  15. Hi Dooleybird, Sorry that you are having problems with the IXEG. 1.) Make sure you set up the sound volumes in the IXEG preferences menu that pops out when you bump your mouse against the left side of the screen. You can adjust sounds that way, and may have accidentially lowered volume levels. Also note that unfortunately some sounds don´t move back up to "normal" if you have them set low on the IXEG (like the airconditioning) and then fly another aircraft in X-Plane 2.) Make sure that you have selected a valid (or make your own?) hardware profile when flying the IXEG 737. It is just the regular hardware control setup that you need to run, i.e. go to the "controls" tab in X-Plane and go from there. Let me know how it goes, Jan

    FPS drops to >1 when using the FMC in a flight

    I am sure that your problem is the external harddrive. The data transfer rates are too low on those, you can´t use an external harddrive to fly the IXEG. Get an internal HDD, it does not have to be a SSD. Regular HDD´s are fast enough. Cheers, Jan
  17. See if you have "airshow smoke" turned on? Cheers, Jan
  18. Yes, I think you can set the "runway state" directly in the weather menu. So even if the sky is clear, your runway could still be wet. You may have to scroll down the settings in the weather menu to see it... Cheers, Jan
  19. You have a "wet" apron - this is the default X-Plane "water spray" effect. Happy landings, Jan

    Speedy Copilot

    This moderator doesn´t like the mention of the word "Airbus" or "320" at all . Cheers, Jan

    Graphical Bug Cockpit: ND/ FMC

    Hi Max, unfortunately not. Sorry, Jan

    Texture update

    Hi there, when we made the IXEG many moons ago, texture size was still a very important factor for many users - as it directly translates to VRAM usage and we deliberately opted to make the external textures "frugal" with regard to that. The cabin textures were more or less a "placeholder" for a better 3D cabin...which hasn´t arrived yet. I agree on the external cart sounds, would be nice to have and may be fairly easy to implement. Cheers, Jan

    Shadows in Cockpit

    Iirc dropping the shadows down to "aircraft only" (scenery doesn´t cast shadows) would give you sharply contoured shadows in the cockpit. The shadows are "X-Plane default", there is nothing we at IXEG can do to change them. Cheers, Jan

    Ixeg 737 stops after take off

    Hi Mario, we heard about a similiar problem before: See if that possibly helps you as well? Cheers, Jan

    No bashing for you, fair comment, I would say. We are aware of everything you said and we would rather have the update sooner than later. Work continues. Jan
