  1. Your experience maybe different but I can see it's open on the Payload & Balance screen, by looking out the window and with the external views.
  2. Doesn't a small blue font indicate a designated altitude that complies with the published restriction. So this may just be the correct behaviour as the current chart does appear have DUPUR at 3000'. Also with the Laminar G1000 at least you may find it won't calculate a VNAV for a fix in a procedure unless the leg in the procedure is active. You could try adding the fix with an altitude constraint outside of the procedure (in your normal flight plan) to make sure you're on the path or at the correct altitude when you active that leg in the procedure. Kind regards BT

    G1000 Bugs

    No need to apologise @Goran_M I for one could have done more to follow this up after I didn't hear anything back. Just for perspective, anyone else reading through the forums contemplating buying the TBM 900 don't let this put you off. Things like this getting missed is the exception not the rule and the level of support Hotstart have provided to date has been excellent. P.S. the 2D popup doesn't seem to be affected by this issue either and as such is a nice easy workaround whilst Hotstart are looking into the issue. Kind regards, Boredtechie

    G1000 Bugs

    The issue with the keypad has been reported a few times by a few different people myself included but unfortunately no bug fix to date. Kind regards, Boredtechie
  5. When I've downloaded 1.1.9 in the past there was a different directory structure containing a `TBM900-linux-x64-installer.run` file. I've just downloaded it this morning it almost looks like an automated build pipeline may not have finished but has bundled the artifacts and published them anyway. Kind regards BT
  6. Hi @sqrt(-1), Right you are my mistake I read the whole thread and some how missed that Kind regards, BT
  7. Hi @Goran_M, Not sure if you just missed it or if they're the wrong files but @JackSwyr appears to have provided some logs above. Kind regards, BT
  8. Hi JackSwyr, I'll be honest I hold Hot Start in high regard they have been relentless in their pursuit of perfection for this addon. That said they rightly tend to focus on the more disruptive issues like the CTD you're experiencing over quality of life issues like entering values in to the FMS. So whilst this issue might take a little longer to fix I suspect you'll see your CTD issue fixed quite quickly but you may need to work with them providing logs, removing other add-ons etc as requested. Please don't give up on this add-on you'll be missing out. Kind regards, BT
  9. Hi JackSwyr, I think we may have very similar issues see below. BKSP for me was a bit unreliable but your experience may differ. One thing I've found that always seems to work is to rotate the outer FMS knob backwards before starting to type on the keypad. Kind regards, BT
  10. Also experiencing this issue in 1.1.7 it's not necessarily new to me in 1.1.7 I just haven't had the time to fly recently. Regards BT
  11. A bit of a guess as I'm not able to test this at the moment but did you reduce the power post climb? I'm not sure if the TBM900 will do this too but some aircraft will pitch up to avoid an over speed situation. Regards BT
  12. Have you possibly disabled the Gizmo plugin?
  13. Were you thinking of this one ?
  14. It's probably worth checking the FSE forums for a more in depth answer. In short FSE loads fuel by the weight and it assumes Jet A weighs the same as 100LL which it doesn't there is about 13% difference. Based on your figures 220*1.13 = 248.6 so I expect this is the issue you're seeing. Regards BT
  15. I would still have to say I support Hotstart in prioritising the exception handling over quality of life improvements for a small percentage of users maybe 15%. Having accurate logs will help Hotstart identify and resolve the remaining little issues in a more effective manner freeing resource for other things. I think we can all agree Hotstart have provided admirable support to date and that we can have confidence in their backlog prioritization.
  16. Has anyone got any up to date usage statistics concerning VR. I found this post which suggests that following the release of 11.20 only 2.65% of users had ever flown a VR flight. Whilst I appreciate things might have changed since last year it would seems likely that VR is still used by a fairly small number of users. With this in mind it would make sense for Hotstart to prioritize more serious issues or issues affecting more users over VR quality of life improvements.
  17. You beat me to it but in case anyone else is interested http://www.tbm.aero/wp-content/uploads/2016/10/PIM_TBM900__E1.pdf 7.4.6
  18. Hi, From memory I believe the default rudder trim keys are 9 and 0 or if you prefer 1 and 3 on the numeric keypad. The indicator itself is above the flaps indicator on the MFD. Trim for the green marks and slowly advance the throttle. Regards BT
  19. Hi Goran_M, I've just reinstalled 1.4c to see if there's a general problem in Europe for you. I am in the UK, using the BT Open Reach network and the download took two to three minutes. Whilst this isn't maxing out my connection it's fairly normal for these upgrades. Regards BT
  20. Hi Ralph, https://x-plane.com/manuals/G1000_Manual.pdf page 89 store, page 90 load. If you're creating them with an external program save the flight plans here .\X-Plane 11\Output\FMS plans Regards
  21. Just use "Socata" Regards
  22. Hi, There may be an issue with the alpha keys being interpreted as numeric on the MFD keypad under certain circumstances. Steps to reproduce 1. Battery on 2. Enter on the MFD 3. Direct button on the MFD key pad 4. If I select "A" for the first digit I get a numeric "1", "B" a numeric "2" and so on up to "I". Once you get to the "J" key you get "A" but after that things get a little less predictable. From what I've seen so far this only seems to affect the first digit of a waypoint. Work around cursor back with the outer FMS knob and overwrite. Rega
  23. Hi YYZ342 It runs fine for me if something breaks I generally know why. I realise this may not be helpful to you but my intent is to give you a little hope to stick with it. I honestly can't say if you're suffering from strange issue from the TBM, parked on a scenery anomaly, being to heavy handed with the reverse range at low speed etc. What I can say is if you can get it ironed out it may just become your favourite addon. Best of luck
  24. Hi SUAS14, The access light is my goto when I first get in the plane. Once you've got either the battery or GPU powering the plane you can enable the cabin lights from the over head panel but you will still need to turn them on above each of the passenger seats. With regards to the HUD, it's a little fold up device on top of the glare shield that you should be able to fold up. Regards
