    Chime when pressing FMC EXEC button

    Thank you very much!
  3. Hello, Just a little detail, I'm sure I'm missing something because this amazing model is all about details: can someone tell me how to enable the chime sound when pressing EXEC on the FMC? I've tried other 737 models and all of them do a very nice sound when hitting on that one. Or maybe the classic 733 did not have such a feature? Thanks in advance for your reply. Greetings, Agustín
  4. Thanks Jan, I'll keep on trying, I must be missing something Btw, I'm watching your tutorial videos on YouTube, they are great, couldn't be clearer, thank you very much for those! Best, Agustín
  5. Well, I just tried again and something really strange happens: after ascension manually, using V/S but LNAV enable, when I reached FL060 and holding altitude with the ALT button, if I click on VNAV, it turns on. However, as soon as I start increasing the ALT wheel from 6000 to the desired cruise altitude (28000 in my case). Flight route looks normal, ascension was done at a standard rate (12 degree angle). Yesterday I even tried doing exactly the same with Zibo's modified 738, same flight route, engaging VNAV and LNAV at same altitude, etc., and it did work fine. I'm really puzzled. Maybe the following screenshots help Here, everything's stable and nice, even VNAV is engaged: Flight plan looks fine too: However, after just turning the wheel one click, to say 6500, the following happens. After that, I can click VNAV as many times as I want but it wont engage again. Once again, thanks to anyone who can help me troubleshoot this Cheers from the summery sunny south, Agustín
  6. Jan, Thanks for your very nice reply. I'll try a couple of times again. I'll try engaging autopilot with V/S and HDG mode on and then take it from there. I like your approach, in fact yesterday I did the whole route (LIMF-LFMT) using LNAV but V/S ("manual VNAV") and it was much more fun :) I get your point about the lack of feedback on old system. However, I was hoping that maybe on some internal console one could see what's stopping it from engaing: not that in real life pilots have access to that, but in the simulator, isn't there some kind of behind-the-curtains debugging console? Have a nice one, Agustín
  7. Dear Litjan, I'm coming back with this problem again, it seems that did not really solve it. I increased the joystick CWS to maximum (0.25%) but I'm stumbling with the same problem as yesterday: LNAV enganges, VNAV fails to engage, without any warning or error on the FMC. I appreciate any help to troubleshoot this issue Br, A.
  8. Same problem here, increased from 0.17% to 0.20% and that nailed it. Thanks a lot Litjan, as always so helpful
  9. FIXED / JUST INCREASE JOYSTICK DEADZONE / PROBLEM APPEARED AFTER X-PLANE UPDATE 11.30 Dear all, I'm trying to fly a route fully on FMC but for some reason VNAV is not engaging (though LNAV is). No error warnings on the flight plan. It's quite continuous, no problems there. Could it be after I updated to X-Plane 11.30? Could it be because I changed a couple of times the destination airport without "hard resetting" (fully reloading) the model? Besides, is there anyway to troubleshoot this, to know why VNAV is not switching on? Thanks in advance for any ideas A.

    Yoke turning all the way left on takeoff

    Dear Litjan, Thank you very much for your reply. You're absolutely right, I was wrong and I had CMD A on. I was trying to save one click when engaging VNAV+LNAV, and my thinking was that if CMD A was on, but all the other modes (VNAV, LNAV, HDG, etc.) where off, it was basically like having autopilot off. I was obviously mistaken. I'll need to go back to the books. Sorry for the stupid question, my wrong! By the way, do you know if there are any official IXEG videos, besides the very good PDF files provided? Greetings, Agustín
  11. Dear all, I've stumbled with the following bug quite frequently, say 1 in 5 take offs: on take-off, once I enable TO/GO mode, with A/T and F/S enabled (but with both CMD/A and CMD/B still off), the yoke turns all the way left. Has anyone else experienced something similar? At first I thought it could be a problem with the flight plan (eventhough F/D was still not enabled) but even the flight route looks fine, with the first points in about the same heading. I can kind of solve it by aborting takeoff, disabling A/T and F/D, doing everything again, but it's not ideal. Thanks in advance for any feedback I'm attaching two screenshots, one just some seconds after TO/GA mode is enabled, where you can clearly see the yoke going by itself all the way left; and a second one with the flight plan (just in case this could explain something). I've ruled out a problem with the joystick: only happens with this model and always during takeoff. Best, Agustín

    Help with FMC

    Dear Litjan and Daniel, Thank you very much to both for your replies, you're making laugh my a** out I also have the Navigraph data so it seems we stumbled with the same bug. I'll try removing that point and fly the route again, hopefully I'll land on Tolouse safely and have time for a good cup of wine Cheers and best wishes for 2019, Agustín

    Help with FMC

    Dear all, Hello, I'm returning to you guys for some help. I'm trying to flight a IFR route from Paris CDG to Toulouse, using the whole package: SID, STAR, approach. For this occasion I've chosen the following ones: SID: AGOP2G, AGOPA (from RWY 09L) STAR: ESIS6N, ESISI (to RWY 14 L) The problem I'm having is when trying to "exit" the STAR and link it to the APPROACH. The mentioned STAR ESIS6N starts from fix ESIS and ends at fix NETRA, as you can see on the following flight plan (before entering the APPROACH, but after having loaded the SID and the STAR): However, what I don't really understand is which of the following I should choose. Could anyone briefly explain the difference between VDM/ILS/RNV? I have some charts and I don't have them as separate procedures, just a standard RNAV LOC (see next screenshot): Besides that doubt, let's say I pick up approach 14L with transition NETRO (sounds logical, it's the last point of the STAR), the flight plan ends up looking terrible, as you can see below: ...when I'm expecting it to look something more like this: Is this some kind of bug, or am I doing something wrong? Thank you so much in advance for any help Best, Agustín

    Passenger seat

    Thanks for the reply Litjan! I fully forgot to open the door, I somehow assumed camera was going through walls but it seems it's not the case.

    Passenger seat

    Dear all, I've been spending hours and learning a lot using IXEG marvelous 737 model. I'm wondering if it's possible to save one of the pre-defined views as a passenger. The closest I could get to, starting from the default Shift+F6 "chase along" view and zooming in using the comma is to get to the following point (see screenshot), but I seem to not be able to move further into the body. Any tips or suggestions? Maybe I'm missing something. Thanks in advance for any help A.
