  1. LES Saab 340A VR Touch Controllers Mod View File This is a mod to fix a lot of manipulators that are otherwise unusable in VR with the touch controllers in the Leading Edge Simulations Saab 340A Version 1.5 for XP11. Manipulators that have been tweaked to work in VR are: Tweak Log: Rudimentary Pilot and Copilot teleport hotspots! (WIP) GPS Knobs, inner/outer Sun Shades, slide on rail and lower/raise All Light Intensity Rheostats Autopilot Altitude Selector Dial Com 1 and 2 Function Selector and Frequency knobs, inner and outer Nav 1 and 2 Function Selector and Frequency knobs, inner and outer ADF 2 and 2 Function Selector and Frequency knobs, inner and outer Transponder Function Selector and Frequency knobs CRS 1 dial CRS 2 dial HDG dial OBS Knobs IAS Bug knobs Altimeter baro pressure knobs Overhead DC Selector knob Flight Number Digit Wheels have been tuned for functionality Parking Brake orientation corrected (was previously reversed, now a push toward the floor pushes the knob down) Steering Tiller orientation corrected (was previously reversed, now a push toward the floor pushes the knob down) DCP Select knob tweaked Decision Height Knob rotation and push in/out tweaked (was previously reversed) And many, many other dials, knobs, and switches... These changes make the aircraft fully flyable using touch controllers in VR! With the exception the yoke. Known bugs or issues: - Some manipulators are a bit fiddly/touchy/sensitive, but at least they work correctly. **most fixed in 1.1 - CRS 1 knob seems to have two grab points, and one doesn't work. If you grab the CRS 1 and it doesn't turn, aim more for the base of the knob instead of the top of the knob. You can also grab the obs knob next to the CRT screen, it works beautifully. - Switches that should "snap" back to center, such as starter switch, bleeds, trims, V/S wheel, etc...they do not snap back to center using the VR controllers. I believe there is some custom "onmouserelease" gizmo code going on there, and the VR controllers aren't seen by gizmo as a "mouse". Fortunately the VR mouse works just fine, so I map the vr mouse to a button on my yoke and turn it on when I need to adjust trims. Everything else is still usable with the VR controllers. When you reset the bleeds it will stay in the reset position, but I've found that it's fine to leave it there. Same thing with the starter switch, it will just stay in the position of the engine you just started, but doesn't make a difference. If you want to snap it back to center, just use the VR mouse for now. I also map the vvi up and vvi down to buttons on my yoke so i don't have to use the V/S wheel when climbing/ascending using V/S mode. - Some custom mouse wheel code in 2d gets broken while using the VR mod, so if you are going to fly her in 2d you may want to revert back to the old .obj files. - gust lock only works using VR mouse. Again, I believe it's dependent on some custom gizmo mouse code. Disclaimer: This is not an officially supported LES update, so don't expect support from them on it. If you need help you can always ask me or just put your old .obj files back in your folders. If you lose the old files and just want to reset everything just reinstall the aircraft. Installation Instructions: Only download the Saab_VR_Obj_V2 zip file. Back up your LES_Saab_340_cockpit.obj from your Passenger Variant folder, your LES_Saab_340a_Cargo_cockpit.obj from your Cargo Variant folder, and your LES_Saab_340a_AEW_cockpit.obj from your Airborne Variant folder. Unzip the file, you'll find 3 folders. These are replacement .obj files and vr_config text files. The files in the unzipped passenger variant folder go in your saab passenger variant folder, The files in the unzipped cargo variant folder go in your saab cargo variant folder, The files in the unzipped airborne variant folder go in your saab airborne variant folder. Make sure you replace the old .obj files. Enjoy! **What's New in Version 2** This is a fairly major update. Along with the obj's you'll now get vr_config.txt files to put in your aircraft variant folders as well. Changed a lot of axis manipulated knobs to their correct manipulation, getting rid of the "sliding up and down the colored line" effect. Also changed the sensitivity of countless dials and switches for a much better experience. Also added teleport hotspots to the pilot and copilot seat (sort of...it's a work in progress, but it works. The blue hotspot indicator that you're probably used to is currently a hoop about where the head of the pilot would be, but it works). All the manipulators that are still bound to color-line axis's can not be fixed because they are custom-code dependent (I think), and I've not found a way to fix them. They work as is, just have to deal with the axis slide. Submitter falcon1823 Submitted 04/08/2018 Category Plugins and Utilities

Unzip the file, you'll find 3 folders, one for each Saab variant (passenger, cargo, airborne). Inside each folder you'll find a ***variant.txt file and a ***vrconfig file. Step 1: The ***vrconfig files just go in your Saab's corresponding aircraft variant folders. Easy. Step 2. You will need a text editor for this next part, I recommend notepad++ (free). The text inside these ***variant.txt files are intended to replace the current corresponding text in the obj files. Open the ***variant.txt file and copy all the text. Open the matching .obj file from you Saab's variant folder in your text editor. Search/find (or edit/find) for the world "TRIS". Highlight that line and all remaining text in the obj (shift click at the bottom of the file to do this quickly) and paste. Save the obj. (Not save-as, don't give it another name). Enjoy! **What's New in Version 2** This is a fairly major update. Along with the obj text modifications you'll now get vr_config.txt files to put in your aircraft variant folders as well.

  3. iGoDispatch for Saab-340A

    Hi, pilot fellas! Today, I would like to share with you something I have been working on for the past several months. It will be an iOS application to perform flight planning for this great plane. This video demonstrates how the application will load a plane with passengers and/or cargo, and how weights, fuel, and center of gravity will be calculated. The application is about one-quarter ready and should be available in late fall. If you have any comments or suggestions, please feel free to send them to me at the following email address: igodispatch@igoapp.ca. Thanks a lot! Igor
  4. Bug report! This happened again when I tried to switch on the autopilot. see screenshot First I decided to continue the sector manually but other weird things happened such as the landing lights where not responding to the switches any more so I binned it, restarted the sim and it worked again in the next attempt. No biggy but another 40 minutes of time lost. Hope you can find a fix for this!
  5. Saab 340 v2

    So i recently read a Facebook post by Leading Edge sims about the upcoming release of a Saab 340 v2 for XP11. I was wondering if owners of the original Saab will get a discount on the newer XP 11 Saab 340 v2, as I was planning to buy the currently available Saab by christmas, but I don want to jump the gun if a major update is in store. -my regards and best of luck AV
  6. NokAir livery

    Hi! Using the livery manager, I downloaded (installed) the Nokair livery, but inside the folder ("LDJ-Nokair HS-GBA") is the Regional Shark livery So ..... I downloaded the Regional Shark (I didn't have it also, I choose just a few during the first install) thinking it was swaped with the Nokair .... but in the Regional Shark folder is the Regional Shark liverie Result: I have twice the Regional Shark livery but I don't have the Nokair one. Is a Livery Manager bug? Can I download the NokAir livery from somewhere else? Thanks in advance!
  7. Saab A340 - console pops up with error

    Hello all, I know this topic has been issued earlier, but I want to start a new one because I'm experiencing it right now. When I start the Saab, I get no audio, all the doors are open, and the propellor has a strange look when it spins. I did contact support, just a few minutes ago, but wasn't able to attach the logs, so I try to throw the bone in here as well. I attached the screenies, and added the gizmo & x-plane logs... Please keep in mind that all my joysticks are unplugged (my Track-IR isn't) Please help me to get this baby flying in all the glory she deserves! Thank you very much! GizmoLog.txt Log.txt

  11. PFPX and Saab 340A

    I am trying to create an aircraft profile for PFPX so this program calculates the flightplan based on the correct data. I found most of the needed data in the Charts (although most digits are difficult to read*). But I have some questions to get a good aircraft profile. 1. In the charts there a two descent profiles each based on a descent of 3.000 feet per minute. I thought that in real life a more modest descent is flown. What is the usual descent speed and how can I get or calculate the right performance data for it? 2. What are the optimum en maximum altitudes for the Saab 340A related the weight of the plane. 3. What is the fuel use per minute while taxiing * I would welcome a better readable Charts document.

  17. File Name: Scandinavian Commuter - Saab 340A File Submitter: Jojo38000 File Submitted: 08 May 2014 File Category: Heavy Metal X-Plane Version(s): X-Plane 10 Livery For: Click Here For Aircraft SAS Commuter, later branded Scandinavian Commuter was a regional airline created by Scandinavian Airlines parent companies Det Norske Luftfartsselskap, Det Danske Luftfartsselskab and Aerotransport on December 1, 1988. It was merged with the new airlines Scandinavian Airlines Denmark, Scandinavian Airlines Sweden and SAS Braathens in 2004. Its head office was in Kastrup, Tårnby Municipality, Denmark The airline operated under four brand names : - Eurolink served the SAS' hub Copenhagen Airport on short-haul routes too small for jet operation. - Norlink operated in Northern Norway on regional non-subsidy routes. The routes were transferred to Widerøe in 2003. - Swelink operated regional routes in Sweden. - Westlink took over the regional routes on the Norwegian West Coast in 2003, after SAS bought Braathens. (source: Wikipedia) This livery pack includes five different liveries (one for each brand + the standard SAS one), all based on the same model. . Even though SAS didn't operate the Saab 340A in the "commuter" colors (their Saab was painted in their regular colors), those liveries are based on the Fokker F50 and the Saab 2000 that were used for these routes.

  21. Saab 340A first flight

    Hi, video of first flight with Saab 340A http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0yHl3NQ_emU Sorry for mistakes
  22. Hi there, Just a small bit of text to tidy up on the virtual check list shown in this screenshot. Thanks very much. Kind regards, James
  23. Hi there, May I first offer my most sincere congratulations on a fantastic result with the Saab 340 - what a pleasure to use! I must say that I love the virtual check lists with all those camera angles, I think the extra effort to create them was well worth it, I for one will be using them as standard during my flight procedures - including the walk around - although I confess to not looking forward to those wet Friday nights too much! I can see this becoming a new standard by which other add-ons are measured against. I feel a bit awkward posting a problem/issue so early after release, but as I have the horsepower to record a video I wanted to show you a consistent audio popping noise I get when the engines are running. I also have to admit that it is rather distracting and erodes the suspension of disbelief. It would seem that there is either an issue with the playback of one of the engine audio samples, or there might even be a clip on a sample itself - I can't tell - but if you watch this video you will hear a distinct pop about 4-5 times during the 60 seconds. There might even be two different pops, one being quieter than the other, which made me suspect that it might be an audio playback issue, and given that it is a brand-new audio system there might be a glitch in there somewhere. In terms of machine spec it's a pretty rapid machine. I am getting 30fps (even with FRAPS) and I installed the low-res textures. I do not experience any perceptible "slowness" so I don't think my machine is struggling to play the loops. (My signature has the full spec) I see that I am not permitted to upload the video as an attachment here. Please could whomever responds please let me know their YouTube userid and I will share the video there to demonstrate. (No need to post it publicly on YouTube as it serves no real purpose for anyone else.) Thanks very much for your help. Kind regards, James
