  1. I foresee two 'events' with regards to the 733. Event 1 is "port to XP12 'as is'. Event 2 is 'upgrades beyond the port'. The goal of event 1 is to get it to work in XP12 the way it does in XP11 given XPlane changes. Those who have made 733 purchases since early this year will certainly get the XP12 port version for free as stated on the XA product page. Beyond that XP12 port though, we have not made any determinations about what may or may not constitute a 'paid upgrade' beyond the fact that it shouldn't be egregious or outlandish. Regarding features 'beyond the xp12 port'... we have and hear arugments all the time for/against variants, cargo versions, etc and have not made up our minds yet about what may be next. The obvious things todo are the FMS work and upgrading all the 3D/textures/animations. As far as MSFS, a lot of us developers have kept an eye out on the whole market/dev process and a port is not a trivial thing, regardless of what Fenix / inisim is doing. We're talking multiple 1000s of man hours easily, and at my age and road traveled, that's a tall order.....regardless of the money potential. I rather enjoy my little world in X-Plane and those users who also see the same value in it. Perhaps Fenix, iniSim or someone else can do a 737-300. I can't speak for any other devs in the X-Aviation ecosystem, but for our part, we'll probably stick to X-plane with the 733...best I can tell from today. -TomK

  4. If this is such a huge focus for you (you've mentioned doors multiple times now), you were never really the target customer for IXEG anyhow. Hate to say that, but it's true.

  5. Thanks for the logs. We'll take a look with this with the recalibrations in the XP12 update.

  7. Quick mod of the Q4xp pilot mod for external views thats available on the org that will gives us pilots in the external view of the 650. Follow the instructions in the mod with the exception of the positions listed below. Use these positions instead and all of a sudden you will have pilots in your Challenger not a drone. External screenshots are massively lacking with a vacant cockpit this fixes that.

  8. I have 3 24" 1080 monitors. In XP settings I just set 1 monitor to full screen with a custom resolution of 5760x1080. I've always done it this way. I watched a video about it 2 or 3 years ago saying it was the best way to do it. When I tried to setup individual monitors, it was very frustrating to get them to line up just right with the offsets, plus it seemed to kill my FPS. This way has always worked for me and I've never had issues. Maybe I'll try again actually setting up 3 monitors separately. I do have a new graphics card now than I did 3 years ago. I'll let you know if have any improvement. Thanks for the suggestion!

  9. Glad you figured out the issue, the fact it was a multiple monitor setup was definitely key missing information. But changing the resolution and having a single render window that stretches across the entire desktop doesn’t sound like how one is meant to set up XP for multiple monitors. That’s the whole point of view offsets. But maybe I’m misunderstanding what you’ve done. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

  10. So after lots of troubleshooting from getting rid of all plugins to downloading a new copy of XP and CL650 I finally found the issue. I have a 3 monitor setup and I have my "main monitor" as the middle monitor. So in XP I set monitor 1 to full screen and change the resolution so it will fit across all 3 screens. For some reason when I use "monitor 1" the mouse wheel doesn't work on these knobs but when I switch to the main monitor it works fine! Very strange bug that I about never figured out.

  11. Dear X-Plane Experts I am a professional air force pilot flying the Challenger in the real world. However, I struggle with installing and using properly the Challenger SIM application for X-plane - everything seems to be quite complicated. I wonder, who could support me in setting up a good reliable system that comes as close as possible to the real world? As a flight instructor I would like to use x-plane 11 / Challenger 650 as a more than welcome additional training tool and propose it to all our flight crews. So far, I own the following hardware: - a Mac M1 Max powerbook (I prefer Mac to WIN) - a HP Reverb G2 (seems to be not very dependable and reliable) - a WIN 10 Game Computer with a Geforce 2080 TI (I am no WIN hard-/software geek) - I ordered a Honeycomb A and B (Yoke and Pedestal) - should arrive within the next few days My goal would be to use as much as possible the "original switches, buttons, etc." in the virtual cockpit meaning to use the yoke and thrust pedestal only for flying manually. May I call this a mixed hardware/VR environment? Anyone who has the same approach? Is there anyone out there who also flies the real Challenger 650 as myself? VR is not my primary goal, although the immersion is of course unmatched. I rather prefer a stable, robust system - as the real Challenger is by the way, too! Any support would be highly welcome. Of course, depending on the level of support offered, I would be willing to pay for. As another possibility of "payback" I can offer my flying experience on the real plane ... I know it really well. Thank you and best wishes Matthias Kalt (mail: mkalt@me.com) Capt CL604/650 Swiss AF

  12. Hi, I'm very glad that you get things working so far. Just a quick note. Sliders support two modes, the command mode with three commands (up, middle, down) and a dataref mode for min/max values. There is actually an example in the documentation: { ch = 11, cc = 0, type = "sld", dataref = "tbm900/knobs/lights/panel_brt", value_min = 0, value_max = 0.90 } What do you exactly mean with the following sentence? There is not really a ID for MIDI devices. Just same name and the two ports. Thanks, Marco

  13. The XP12 "compatibility" work is underway FYI. First order of business is to get it flying as it does now in XP11, and then to begin improvements. -TomK

  14. I'm thoroughly enjoying this well designed and, as far as I can tell, accurate simulation. It is a real delight to fly. But how do my expensive passengers really feel? Graeme (Reflected Reality Simulations) makes mention of this in one of his excellent instructional videos. When disembarking, my passengers always thank me for the flight, but are they really happy with that +300fpm landing, maybe a bounce and then a less than comfortable deceleration as I rapidly run out of tarmac? Or was the elderly millionaire couple unsettled by the fighter jet like departure followed by discomfort in their ears as we climbed a little too quickly? Did they really have to wear their seatbelts for the whole flight because I forgot to turn off the sign? Why did we stop so harshly at the gate? It would be interesting to gauge whether the flight has been smooth from gate to gate. Is there a way to measure the parameters of the whole flight? G-forces, vertical speed, acceleration/deceleration, etc. Is there a way that this information could be displayed in the form of a passenger satisfaction survey after the passengers have disemabarked? It would add that extra depth of immersion. Obviously, it would not apply when there are no passengers embarked, ie. Training flights! I note that Zibo has a approach and landing rating display in his excellent 737-800 simulation, the only rating, other than landing rates plugins I am aware of. I would love to try and develop something along these lines but my software skills are very basic, as in none! Anyway just an idea to add further immersion to an already peerless simulation.

    This livery is very much inspired by Kirk Smith and his winning design for the Diamond DA50 RG. And of course some adaptations has been made to make it fit the CL650 fuselage. Hope this will spread i little colour on the biz jet world. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Note version number: Initial version 1.0.0 is tested in XP11 with Challenger version 1.6.1 Version 1.1.0 is tested in XP12-beta 9 with Challenger 1.7 beta 36

    About this plugin You have a MIDI Controller at home with lots of buttons and knobs? Why not use it with your favourite aircraft to control the autopilot and many other functions! XMidiCtrl is a plugin for X-Plane 11, which allows you to connect MIDI controllers to X-Plane commands and datarefs without the need of additional software. The plugin was developed for X-Plane 11.50+ and supports Microsoft Windows, Linux and macOS. The following devices are officially supported: Behringer X Touch Mini The following devices are known to work: Behringer BCR2000 Behringer X-Touch Compact Loupedeck Live XMidiCtrl is open source: GitHub page Features Create different profiles for your aircrafts Bind knobs and buttons of your controller to X-Plane Commands and DataRefs Simulate push and pull functions for buttons (normal button press = push, long botton press = pull) Send MIDI messages to the MIDI device to illuminate buttons when certain modes are active (e.g. autopilot, heading mode, ...) Developed in C++ with no performance impact in your simulator Donate If you like XMidiCtrl and want to support its further development then you can donate. Documentation Detailed documentation of the plugin and all mapping options can be found here. Support If you need support or want to chat about the plugin then please visit the official support forum. Installation Extract the ZIP file and move its entire XMidiCtrl folder into your ..\X-Plane\Resources\plugins directory. Examples I have included the following examples as well as overlays to print out in the examples folder: ToLiss A321 Hot Start TBM 900 Hot Start Challenger 650 IXEG 737-300 ZIBO 737-800 iniBuilds A310 Felis Boeing 747-200 Templates I included a template for the Behringer X-Touch Mini in the templates folder of the installation package. This template includes an example mapping and further information about the supported mapping options. I have also included my hardware configuration of the Behringer X-Touch Mini in the same folder. You can apply those settings using the X-Touch Editor from Behringer. To use the template file, simply copy it into your aircraft folder and start adding commands and/or datarefs for your buttons and encoders. Usage When a new aircraft is loaded, the plugin will search in the aircraft directory for a file called XMidiCtrl.toml. The profile uses the TOML language and holds information about the MIDI devices to be used and the mappings of the encoders and buttons. Further information about the TOML syntax can be found here. The configuration of XMidiCtrl might be a bit intimidating at the beginning, but it is quite straight forward. Please don't hesitate to contact me if you run into problems. Screenshots
