  1. Hi Josh, I just doublechecked on my installation with 11.25b1 and my Thrustmaster Warthog Throttle - this is the way I have it set up and both thrust levers work independently with this: Doublecheck that no other input device is interfering, especially some plugins like "fly with lua" and such have a history of doing magic - sometimes in an undesired way . Let us know how it goes, we will stay with you until it works! Jan

    High engine oil temp?

    We don´t really drive the engine oil temperature, it is default X-Plane. We have overriding this on our list, but so far we are just taking the default X-Plane value (which is obviously a bit high in XP11). Just ignore the high temp for now, it won´t hurt your engine at all. Cheers, Jan
  3. We haven´t heard that one before, but it may be possible that you are assigning the throttle to some wrong throttle command. Try browsing the list, there may be another, more generic throttle command. I can´t see what you selected, due to the poor quality of the video, can you tell me which command you assigned to your left and right hardware throttle? If some other axis is assigned to throttle, it is likely that you can´t move them with mouse or keys at all. Cheers, Jan

    Hello from an old time X Planer

    Hi Baron, thanks for the kind words! To answer your questions: 1.) When we built the plane, there was no scroll wheel manipulation in X-Plane yet, that is why we didn´t implement it. It is on the list of things we plan to add. 2.) I don´t think the book will be offered on the XA store, but you can buy it from Mike Ray directly. We worked with him on making that book and it is indeed a good companion! 3.) I don´t own the Go Flight Panel, but others have used them as well, so if you have any questions, make sure to post them in the hardware forum and I am sure others may help you there! 4.) The ACTUAL CG of the aircraft is only shown on the "load and trim" tab that pops out of the left-hand screen. It also shows the correct stab trim setting for take-off. You can enter that one into the correct field on the FMC for the take-off values, and the (same) stab trim settings will show. The cruise CG is actually only a performance planning value for the FMC, it is not taken into account yet, and also real pilots will only enter it if the cruise CG is at an extreme (otherwise it´s influence on actual fuel burn is very small). Cheers, Jan

    License / Deauthorise

    Ben is correct in that a Windows update can trigger this, I think. I recently had to re-register my laptop computer - it surprised me because I hadn´t changed anything hardware-wise, but other than that posed no problem. Cheers, Jan
  6. I think (knowing Tom) that he is aware that -290 is below 0K. However, an application should not crash or show other weird behaviour, even if a user is putting in data (even using DRE, which IS a tool supported by Laminar) that makes no sense. Furthermore, I think that Tom´s discovery could help solve the "teleport to E46 bug" - so pointing out that -290 is not physically possible is beside the point. Its like making an addon plane that crashes to desktop if people bank it more than 30 degrees, and then saying "well, airliners shouldn´t bank more than 30 degrees, so don´t do it!" Jan

    Crash in the middle of the flight

    I can´t open your Log.txt for some reason - but if your X-Plane crashes it is usually a combination of plugins that is causing it. The normal troubleshooting sequence is to remove all plugins except for the ones needed to run the IXEG, then add them in one by one to see which one is causing the problem. Regular problems are flywithlua, xenviro, and any other plugins that alter art datarefs or such. You can also try to fly with the "show vortices" option disabled, that helped some people with crashes. Cheers, Jan

    cockpit lighting, night flying

    We definitely will - its pretty far up on the list of visual improvements planned! Cheers, Jan
  10. Yeah, the wingtip vortices where a "borderline" feature that worked ok in XP10 but caused some headaches for some people. We considered removing the effect altogether, and might do so for a future update. Happy you got it to work ok for you, cheers, Jan
  11. Hi t4murphy, this is usually due to some other 3rd party program altering "art controls", like to get certain environmental effects, changed hue, colouring, etc. It could also be due to outdated graphics drivers. To troubleshoot, please disable all other plugins, then add them back one by one to find the conflicting one. Thanks, Jan
  12. Hi shabani, I don´t think the problem lies with x-aviation or that they can do anything about your sound problem. We have our own IXEG custom sound engine providing the 3D-sound for our add-on and there is a chance that a combination of sound chip/hardware properties and/or other add-ons could cause your problem. At this point it is unlikely that we can fix or help you with your problem, especially since you are the only one who has reported it. I am sorry that you have a degradation in sound quality, but we can not recreate the problem and therefore not fix it. Cheers, Jan
  13. Hi everyone, during the download I got this error several times - only "ignore" allowed me to get past it (see attached screenshot). Then, during an attempt to load seasons into X-Plane, I get an onscreen warning and this in my log.txt: 0:00:00.000 D/HID: HID Bridge Running 0:00:00.422 E/SYS: +------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 0:00:00.422 E/SYS: | There was a problem loading the scenery package: 0:00:00.422 E/SYS: | Custom Scenery/SeasonsXP/ 0:00:00.422 E/SYS: | The scenery may not look correct. 0:00:00.422 E/SYS: | Please see the Log.txt file for detailed error information. 0:00:00.422 E/SYS: | (io_locate.cpp:394) 0:00:00.422 E/SYS: +------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 0:00:00.422 E/SCN: Custom Scenery/SeasonsXP/library.txt: 0:00:00.422 E/SCN: Incorrect version for scenery library file.

    Problems getting this to work...

    Thanks, Ben - I dare not to tinker too much with my router settings. I remember an unfortunate attempt a few years ago to open some specific ports and that went really not well at all. I prefer the "get the long LAN cable out of the basement and run a bypass" solution . Cheers, Jan

    Problems getting this to work...

    Update: Finally got it to work, and I am posting how here to help other people with the same problem and X-Aviation in troubleshooting the problem. This is how my computer is connected to the internet: 1.) The signal (DSL) enters the house and goes into a WLAN router. 2.) The line goes from the WLAN router into a second WLAN router (in my office), type Netgear WGT624. 3.) The line goes from the second router into my computer. This configuration did not work with the download. However, when I plugged my computer directly into the first router (bypassing the Netgear), things worked flawlessly. Off to some winter flying! Jan

    Chinese airspace and metres

    By using a conversion table - and now look at that: It is mounted right in the cockpit for your convenience. Gee whiz! Jan

    Problems getting this to work...

    Update: Tried with the firewall off, seems I got a bit further this time - about halfway...

    Problems getting this to work...

    Hi Cameron, yes, I run the regular firewall that comes with Win10... I always get the message at the same "spot" in the download, when about 1/3rd through the first (of three) packages. Never had a problem with downloading from X-Aviation before, so this is somewhat puzzling... Cheers, Jan

    IXEG 737 and Precision Flight Controls C2 Pro

    Hi Patrick, we use a whole bunch of custom code to control systems, so not everything that works for the default planes will work for ours...however: I don´t have the PFC but you may want to check any buttons for moving "mixture" to lean or cutoff, I think. The engine controls are pretty much default X-Plane, and when they run, the only thing stopping them is either the "mixture" setting (emulated by the idle/cutoff switches) ... or you may be toggling the fire switch inadvertantly (check on the center pedestal if one is "up" a little bit)... For the spoiler, reversing the direction may work - or it may be assigned to a lever so it won´t react to button input, no idea how you try to control it. Good luck, Jan

    FMC crash when loading up aircraft.

    Hi BlueNose, I am afraid I can´t offer any advice on this. You are reporting a unique situation that we haven´t heard of before with several thousand customers... the 737 works for everyone but you, and I have no idea why that is. Sorry, I wish I could offer some better advice! Cheers, Jan
  21. Thanks for letting us know it worked for you! Cheers, Jan
  22. Hi everyone, I discussed the behaviour with Laminar Research, and they found this out: ************************************************************************ I got to the bottom of this. There is a nosewheel spring constant entered in Plane-Maker for the IXEG that is NOT in the LR 737. More details: 1. X-Plane 10 allowed a spring constant on a nose wheel or tail wheel, e.g. think bungee steering on a C172. 2. X-Plane 11 supports this ONLY for tail wheels - the code for bungees is a little hacky and doesn't work with the newer wheel physics in v11. Having proper nose wheel bungees is on Austin's future todo list, but for now X-Plane only uses this for the tail wheel (true for ALL of v11) for 11.30 Austin has a wording change coming until we fix all of this. 3. X-Plane wheel steer with differential brakes automagically if the plane has bungees OR castoring. So: set the spring force to 0 (correct value for an airliner, right??) and the brakes will stop braking. In the future we (LR) may start ignoring this variable if there is no tail wheel. ******************************************************* So please try to change this (if you are affected) in planemaker: Opem the 733.acf in planemaker, then open STANDARD/LANDING GEAR and click the GEAR DATA tab. In th top right corner you can see the "nosewheel spring force" - it is currently set to 30. Try to set it to 0 and let me know if this fixes the problem! If this fixes the problem, we will change this for the next update! Cheers, Jan

    assigned throttle axes don't work

    Good to hear you got it solved! Jan

    assigned throttle axes don't work

    I looked at your log.txt and you are running more (possibly conflicting) plugins than I could count in an afternoon . I would ask you to remove them (temporarily) to find out which one is the culprit. My money would be on flywithlua or FSUIPC, possibly also the python interface. There is a boatload of warnings about "unassigend joystick axis" in your log as well, so I am not surprised that something isn´t working right... Cheers, Jan

    FMC crash when loading up aircraft.

    Make sure you pick the right choices when running the installer. There were significant changes between XP10 and XP11, for example. Jan
