    CTD with X-Plane 11.31rc1 and TBM 1.1.4b

    Could be, but the difference of 30 degrees or so still existed between the C172 and the TBM on the ground. Not important, though. I'm hoping the devs can fix this in the next few weeks now that 11.32 is a release candidate. Did a nice flight with ASXP, SMP and the DA-62 from Orbix KVUO to KBDN today. Love to fly over that high desert ortho although all of Mt Hood and West was in the clouds...

    CTD with X-Plane 11.31rc1 and TBM 1.1.4b

    Hello again @DwightP980! Well, after reading your post I tried again with the two aircraft (C172 / TBM) at KFRG (Atlantic ramp) and the Deer Park VOR (about 7 miles away) and got the same result while parked at the ramp. I never did try this in the air so I fired up the TBM and took off. I turned toward the VOR and determined the direct to with the CDI, moved the heading bug to track and yes, the TBM did track directly to the VOR. So, I don't know why the discrepancy exists on the ground but in the air it seem to work OK. Just wanted to let you know... Best, Ken

    Hi @DwightP980. I don't think the VOR to VOR is going to work very well. I tried that and noticed that the radials were "off". Try loading the C172 / G1000 at an airport near a VOR then see what the "direct to" is. I think you will find the VOR info in the TBM is different. It's off by 20 or 30 degrees in my sim. The TBM is addictive and when it was working properly I flew it to the exclusion of all my other payware however I'm not going to invest time in this model again until it's fixed. I'm thinking that is going to be longer than "a few days" as it seems really, really broken. The upside of this is that I'm getting back to flying a few other models and realizing how much I enjoyed them prior to the TBM. Meanwhile I will - along with many others - hope that the TBM is fixed sooner rather than later. Keep the shiny side up!

    The TBM, CTD's and XP 11.32

    Not confrontational at all @Goran_M. Never doubted that help was on the way - and don't hesitate to let us know when submissions start to overwhelm the process...

    Hi @Goran_M! I can confirm that with a fresh TBM install, new XP Pref and empty TBM "State" folder the crash still occurs with XP 11.32b1. As soon as you select the "enter" button (airport or other) XP will quietly close down. I feel your pain...LOL! However, since all my other payware aircraft work just fine and I have not experienced any other downsides with XP 11.3xxx versions it appears that you folks NEED to address this here. The crash info may have been relayed to XP but they have bigger fish to fry than "fixing" the TBM. Please do all you can to get this fixed on your end. I have been happily flying this incredible model since it's release - it is so painful to leave it in my virtual hanger... TBM900_Log.txt Log.txt

    @j07rdi, we all appreciate your detective work! And yes, except for the G1000 and the AOA indicator it all seems to work fine. I'm just wondering if you can find a TBM900/A somewhere in Trade-a-Plane...really LOL! Keep the shiny side up...

    There is no question that the latest XP update has "borked" the TBM. My own experience with 11.31r1 has been very positive with this exception. All of my other payware models are working. The problem areas that still exist in this update don't seem to have any connection to the TBM issues. It's looking like this is a "custom G1000" thing that the TBM devs need to address. One more thing - is it just me or did the AOA indicator stop working as well? Looks like the TBM goes into the hanger for a while - it's my favorite by far but...

    Hi @j07rdi! Nice bit of detective work. My results show that upon deleting (saving first) the Pref folder and restarting XP a flight plan can be loaded. However, upon deleting that flight plan on a subsequent restart the issue returns. But that's a really nice try...

    Whatever you do, don't change the destination airport...LOL!

    These "fixes" don't work. You can enter procedures out of your departure airport and procedures back into that airport. As soon as you attempt to enter a destination airport the sim will shut down. I completely understand why the TBM team cannot attempt to fix this as XP 11.3xxx is a moving target. I am an XP fan and have been for years but this is a very frustrating period. Perhaps Laminar should take a breath - I'm in no hurry for Vulcan and don't care (right now) for VR. I know these technologies are the future but we don't HAVE to get there by 5PM today...LOL!

    I had charts and now they are gone...

    @Patrick G. Everything works except the chart feature. And works very well, I might add. Had two flights today to check out something else - the TBM performed beautifully. Full disclosure - I have to say the take off run continues to be very, very squirrelly (spelling?) but that is the only "con" I can come up with. Otherwise, near perfect! Make sure you turn on the AP on the upper panel...LOL!

    @Goran_M is this a fix for both the incorrect splash screen data AND the missing charts?

    Glad it's not just me! Beautiful model, all these "extra's" kind of spoiled us, don't you think? LOL!

    No Goran, just inside the US - East Coast and West Coast...

    I had charts and now they are gone...

    I posted this in the General Discussion Forum but it probably should have been here. Previously, I was able to access all the charts I needed for a flight right on the MFD using the charts softkey. Now when I attempTBM900_Log.txtt this I get a "chart not available" message. I have reinstalled (new downloads) a few times thinking something might be corrupted but still no joy on the chart access. What did I do? LOL! Log.txt
