  1. Sounds like you did not advance your condition levers.
  2. I'm not sure why people seem to think this way, but the type of aircraft category has no merit to how an aircraft will perform. The depth of simulation and 3D does.
  3. This computer is not adequate for the SR22. You will need to make some hardware upgrades.
  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. We don't have any timeline for the moment. Early Access is just that, and dust will need to settle a bit before we start distributing XP 12 updates.
  6. @IronCroptop, The beta falls into the same equivalency to dragging files rather than having a full install from retail, hence the errors. It is intended to supplement a full retail install. My post stands. This is a public service announcement, not some weird thing to make an example out of you. Please lower the temper a few degrees.
  7. A note to people here: Do NOT drag files from X-Plane 11 to 12. Always do a fresh install from your installer if you want future updates to go correctly. This is a classic case of not using the installer to place the product in v12.
  8. The TBM has persistent state tracking of the aircraft and requires you to treat it like it were your own real aircraft. If you leave things in the wrong state (like your battery), you will have drained it in that few week window you discussed. It tracks that time, even when the sim is not running. You may want to check the Maintenance Manager, or create a new airframe in the Airframe Manager.
  9. Hi there. This website has nothing to do with the xPilot plugin. We've been around much longer than them, despite their choice to use the same name.
  10. You did not post your topic in the proper support channel. Therefore, the developers of the TBM did not look at it.
  11. The first thought we have is another plugin is causing this. Please remove all plugins in your X-Plane/Resources/Plugins folder except for Gizmo64 and see what happens. You can add plugins back one by one to see which one is causing it.

    CTD in XP12...

    An X-Plane 12 update will come for most all products, including the TBM. That said, X-Plane 12 is considered Early Access. We are not necessarily focused on releasing updates just yet while the dust settles and bugs get worked out.
  13. There's a search function on the manual you can use. The word 'autopilot' would have yielded an immediate result: http://togasim.com/mu2docs/supplements/spz500.html#sperry-spz-500-autoflight-system If all else fails, be sure to use that search function in the future. It's a quick way to get around.
  14. This is essentially how it is, though. Most MU-2 pilots would place the AP in STBY mode rather than totally disengage (this basically soft disengages the autopilot by keeping it "on", but not flying the aircraft), re-adjust, then re-engage any mode necessary. It's not uncommon for an old autopilot, and yes, many 172's and other GA aircraft have better AP's these days. Technology has evolved a lot since the ~1980's and even 90's. This is definitely not unique to the MU-2 though. The best practiced method would be to use the pitch trim wheel to assist in your VS mode. Once you dial in the VS trim to your liking, engage VS. The same would be said for descent.
  15. This is correct behavior for the autopilot in the MU-2. As explained in the manual: ALT (Altitude hold) Mode Select Maintains indicated altitude at the time this mode is selected. VS (vertical speed) mode select This mode will hold the vertical speed at the time this mode is initiated. Vertical speed is NOT selectable by other means. AS (indicated air speed) mode select This mode will hold the indicated air speed at the time this mode is initiated by adjusting the pitch of the aircraft.
  16. Manuals: The thing developers hate to spend time on because no one tends to reads them.
  17. In this instance, if you have a route in the GNS you would want to engage HDG mode, and the down by the yoke you will see a button for GPS Steering (GPSS). This will send heading commands from the GNS to the autopilot for your route.
  18. There has been some assumptions made about how this is to operate, and documentation on the SBY mode was slim. I've just spoken to some people with an in at Honeywell and we'll get this proper in a future update now that I have a clear understanding of how this mode should work.
  19. I don't know what went through your head to make you feel like it would be a good idea to post payware product installer files online, but please don't ever do that. Regarding your issue, to me it sounds as though some kind of anti-virus has quarantined a file and has basically rendered it useless. No other reports of this though, so whatever is happening seems to be local to your machine at the moment.
  20. It's under the #1 engine (left side).
