  1. Can I just take a moment to say a huge thankyou to the Devs for their recent work on the 340. It has quickly become one of my top three a/c in XP which is high praise indeed when you consider some of the competition. Absolutely brilliant job and I for one am most appreciative.

  3. After doing some tweaks, specifically regarding an issue with my FPS, all is ok now. I made four flights since yesterday and I have to say that it is the best aircraft I have in X-plane. Yes there are a certain numbers of high quality aircrafts but this one is very complete. It depends for sure what you are looking for. I have all the main complex aircrafts for X-plane, fan of business jets. I have the new Phenom300 from Aerobask, but the feeling I have with this SR22 is unrivaled. The Avidyne suite is really well done and fully realistic. Flight model is perfect. You really need to

  6. This afternoon I had a pleasant flight to EGNX using OrbX scenery. The BN2-T from TorqueSim loaded with some goods and one passenger proved to be a reliable workhorse. The weatherconditions managed by ASXP and displayed by SkyMAXX Pro 5.1 were nice and a bit challenging due a relative high wind speed near the ground. The sun breaks through the clouds, creating nice shadows in the cockpit. ShadeX contributes to the great atmosphere. I am a happy pilot.

  7. Cool new update... The performance improvements are quiet significant, I wondered how the new default cloud draw area of 40000sm would work but it's indeed working pretty good, I have never used higher settings like this before so the experience was very impressive while keeping good performance. @sundog@JohnMAXX@Cameron Great job once again, thank you very much. :-)

  11. I'm not disappointed. This is most exciting and best release that I've ever seen for XP. But I only fly GA planes in XP. Real-world SR22 Avidyne owner though and I think this plane is fantastic. I'm so thankful to you guys to do something so good at such a great price.

  12. Switched on Hyperthreading: Works like a charm at 47 fps (only sometimes minute drops in fps which is way better than before). Thankyou very much Coop. Btw i love the SR22 (i have the SR22 G1000 and Entegra aswell as the SR20 G1000 and i will get the SR20 Entegra too)

  14. Thanks for reporting! We've found this happens due to it thinking audio panel commands are missing when the GTN configs are loaded. We've got the fix ready and it will come with the first patch.

  15. You can assume better frames if you aren't taxing all of your CPU threads. The Entegra uses CPU, but it is very threaded from main. On my MacBook Pro, I get around a 20fps boost compared to the G1000 edition (~40 -> ~60fps). If you don't have the CPU room to spar, there is the potential for the FPS to be less. It is very CPU dependent.

  22. SMP with volumetric clouds, ASXP (with SMP option selected), and RWC. Just a little assist from MaxxFX (not very much, though ). Also duly impressed that my FPS did not get torn to shreds. Thanks for a great product, keep up the great work.

  23. The same for me. I've update to SMP 5.0 after purchase RWC (so 20$ + 20$), and it was better with SMP 4.0. When I desactive SMP 5.0 I've 50/55 FPS, and It drops to 15/20 FPS, just with broken clouds, without volumetric beta. I'm very disapointing and hope a future update will improve that.

  24. more 3D porn for the attentive. Nowadays, the 3D has to deliver excruciating detail, so its a big screenshot so nobody is getting faked out. Immersion is the name of the game! I'm getting close to wrapping up the cockpit geometry (texturing is another matter). After that I move to some details on the landing gear, then the wings...then FMOD sounds and the programming and texturing; however, with as much experience as I've had with this aircraft, I don't think the programming of the systems is the long straw. Its a relatively simple (but FAST!) aircraft and I have lots of legacy code from

  25. @Wyskass Did you set FL300 as your cruise at any point? Set the cruise alt so it displays in "blue". Or did you just set 14000 as your target alt? I've noticed over the years of flying the TBM (and other G1000 aircraft) that if you don't configure the flight plan in this way often you will experience exactly what you describe. Various TOD alerts. As the aircraft climbs and descends a bit at cruise. I don't pay them any mind as the ACTUAL TOD will appear at the proper time and all is well. Close enough to reality for me. Haven't you noticed this?

  28. I can confirm there is a bug here. However, this was totally unrelated to the previous "No deviation G / S" bug Prosco mentioned above in the OP. I won't bore you with the details but this was related to the unique situation where Rwy 10R and Rwy 28L use the same frequency but 10R is an ILS and 28L is just a localizer. And just an FYI... videos are helpful but most times they are not enough to help diagnose a problem. We always first ask for a log.txt. When we do that it's not because we are "not taking you seriously", it's because we want all the information that is available in orde

  31. Your X-Plane folder is inside of a "Program Files" folder which Windows is probably protecting. This means the X-A activation process cannot save your license file, as indicated by this line: 0:03:15.850 G64: debug: Toast Message:(type:error) (X-Aviation Licensing) / (Could not save license data.) On my own system I have D:\SteamLibrary as the root folder for my extra steam content. Not D:\Program Files\ Here's a quick google result on how to move a steam app to another drive/folder: https://www.howtogeek.com/269515/how-to-move-a-steam-game-to-another-dr

  32. Nick is right... Austin models turboprop behavior based mostly on a PT-6 because that is what he flies. We have overridden a LOT of the engine behavior but it's a balancing act. If we adjust the fuel flow to "fix" the ITT swings then the engines will respond too slowly. I think we have found a good balance for now.

  33. With 4 threads, performance will suffer. Our minimum supported is quad-core, 8 threads. Your CPU should support hyper threading which should help with performance, but it appears has been turned off. The should help performance. On low-spec computers, you can also run on the engine page instead of the map page and less will happen in the background. Someone on our beta team was running on a 2xxx series i5 4 thread CPU and was able to work with that, though I expect their X-Plane settings weren't set so high.

  37. Moving the Power Lever(s) has absolutely NO effect on the Condition Lever(s). If that is happening it is something related to you setup. Is that (waggle) a technical term? Please try to be a little more precise as to what you actually did. You didn't even bother to mention whether or not you used the TQ viewer to see if your hardware was synced. Or how about attaching some screenshots or video? I can't look at the code based on anecdotal musings. We do not have even ONE other customer reporting the same problems your are experiencing. Based on that and years

  38. Honestly? What if we're already using Windows 10 and still have the problems? I'd take a look at the forum posts here....many are already reporting problems associated with the latest update and they all seem to point to Gizmo. In the meantime, we can't fly.

  41. Hi Matt, I know, this is not the answer you are waiting. I have not the other Saab. The LES one is really done to be flown on both seats, which is perfect in a shared cockpit, with very few limitations. I fly it since 2013. It has been continuously improved by the team, so I have no reason to buy the other Saab and spend days to write a new smartco file (Sometimes no doable at all, or with too much limitations, and often with no help from the devs). If you are not money limited, buy it.

  42. It looks like the fix in the latest libacfutils didn't fully address the issue for everyone, in the meantime while we are working on a fix, there is a workaround to prevent this from happening: In X-Plane 11/Aircraft/X-Aviation/TorqueSim BN-2T Turbine Islander/plugins/is_systems/settings, there is a file settings.cfg. Open that file, and set the line "disable_mtuploader" to "= 1" (it is 0 by default). Loading the aircraft after that should then be without issue.

  45. OK, I am making progress. This is all new to me. I have followed all the instructions up to step 3. First, the good news. The G5s work fine as pop outs. The bad news is that they still don't show in my panel. That must be what happens in step 3. In your cockpit object (where all your manipulators are), the display texture will be needed.

  46. Hello all, Just getting started with this excellent airplane. Very impressed with it, but just had a few questions. TOGO button: I read in the manual the function of this button and understand it is used for taking off/go around. But how exactly do you use it? I think it said for TO you press it and it sets wings level and 10 degree pitch upwards for climb. Do you press it after you leave the runway or set it before? I guess I am a bit confused on when you would actually use it in real life. Approach speeds. I am looking for the proper approach speed in landing config (full flap

  47. You can use the first stage of flaps at 150 knots quite safely and then gear down at 140, at 1000 feet around 120 knots then flaps full, 500 feet 90 knots and hold that down to the threshold where you should be at about 85 as you cross, then at 30 feet then bring power lever to idle. Ideally you should be stalling just as the mains touch at around 75ish, winds permitting.
