Elec Bus issue after shutdown


Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

Since updating to 1.31,1.32 and now 1.33 ive noticed that after shutdown and switching from APU to GPU the left bus "Bus Off" light illuminates and the electrics are solely operating on the right hand side.  To keep things running ok it appears I have to leave things running on the APU.

However..when starting up from cold and dark, things seem to work normally.

 

Also, the view from the left hand seat is not in line with the yoke.

Hi,

this is a known bug with a "timer" in Gizmo, it should get fixed with the next Gizmo version (I am already running a test version that fixes it). Indeed you can not power the left GEN BUS with the GPU anymore after it has been powered by the APU or engine generators.

The current workaround is to either accept that (no electrical users that you need during turnaround are on the left GEN BUS), or reboot gizmo once you are parked.

The view (W) was intentionally moved over so you can see more of the important stuff (like the landing gear lights)...you can freely adjust it in planemaker (viewpoint) or set up a "saved view" with the CTRL-NumPad keys (you can bind recalling those views to a joystick button, too).

Cheers, Jan

Well, here is the walkthrough:

Open Planemaker

Load the B733.acf

Go to the tab "Standard" - pick option "Viewpoint"

Stay in the tab "General", look at the "Cockpit" section (top right)

Locate the fields that say long, lat, vert arm pilots viewpoint.

Change the numbers in those fields to shift the viewpoint long(itudinally), lat(erally) and vert(ically).

Click on the little "x" in the bar above when done.

Choose "File", then "Save" then "Exit".

Now reload the 737 in X-Plane from the developers menu, otherwise you won´t see the change.

Cheers, Jan

Thank you sir, I appreciate it.  I now have the viewpoint exactly where I want it!

Quick question..Will the bus issue ever be rectified?

I certainly think so! As a matter of fact I am already running an advanced Gizmo version that cures it. We just need to test it some more...
