    VR capabilities of Saab

    I'm old, so I've learned patience. I can wait.

    Thanks for the input, I'll see if I can get time to test this sometime this weekend.

    OK, followup on the Xsaitekpanels plugin suggested by @mjrhealth, what an unmitigated disaster... Turning on the GNS530 works fine until you hit the OK on the "boot-screen", and the screen goes black instead of showing the map. And the autopilot stops working completely. Like, it enables fine, but it doesn't do any vertical or horizontal piloting... Looks like I might as well sell my panels and yoke as I have pretty much zero use for them in XP11.

    You're welcome @Goran_M, and I know it's not your problem now. I added the zip so you could test and maybe confirm th error. I'm a total Saab 340 evangelist now, I just love it so much. Thanks @mjrhealth, I'll give that plugin a shot. I've had rather disappointing esperiences with the panels in various planes, using the Logitech plugin, where the numbers on the radio and A/P panels don't always light up etc. Maybe this plugin will do a better (more consistent) job.

    How do I update nav-data for the GNS530?

    So, since my XP11 data is up to date, it's just the date-info on the GPS that isn't reporting the actual date for the AIRAC? My cycle_info.txt says 1810, so I guess it's all right

    @mmerelles, I tried the simvrlabs profile, and it's ok in VR, but it made the Saab "unplayable" outside of VR.. I was a sad panda then...

    It's confirmed to be related to a plug-in. I did a clean second install, copied over the Aircraft\X-Aviation\Saab 340A and the Gizmo64 folders and have been unable to reproduce the problem. Today I copied all my other plugins over, and it misbehaved again. Then I started deleting the least critical plugins from the plugins folder of the second install. I started with the XSaitekProFlight plugin (the plugin for the Logitech ProFlight panels), and the problem appears to be gone! I've tested multiple times now (both on the clean second install and on my regular install), rebooted the PC to make sure there are no remnants in RAM that could affect this, and so far so good! I've attached a 7-zip archive of the plugin for you so you can test this as well. Also, I've attached a screenshot of the remaining plugins and my aircraft so you can compare if needed. For me it's just a matter of turning on batteries, connecting and enabling GPU and then the avionics, and the throttles start "walking". Here's a video of it failing: If I can do anything to help test this further, let me know. XSaitekProFlight.7z

    Let me try this again: What type of data-source should I use? What folder should it point to? See attached image of what I already have set up, and please advice from there.

    CRS1 via joystick button possible?

    Thanks! I had a few buttons to spare on my joystick, so I wanted to bind these three functions. :D

    CRS1 via joystick button possible?

    Ah, sorry, I meant the HDG, not CRS.. >_<

    CRS1 via joystick button possible?

    How about the CRS+/-?
  12. I want to map the A/P disco button on the yoke to my joystick, but I can't find the right function to assign. The one that works for most other aircradt I have (Toggle Servos) doesn't work, and I can't find any other that does either.
  13. I have a Navigraph subscription, and I've manually set up various GPS data-folders in their downloader to supply various planes I have with data (including a X-Plane\Custom Data\GNS430 folder), but the Saab's GNS530 still says its nav-data is from November 2016. How can I update this?

    Correct sequence of pushback and engine start?

    BP works fine for me as long as I do straight pushbacks only. If I try making turns in my pushback, I just end up with a tug that keeps going in circles until I disable BP in the Plugin Admin.
