  1. Thanks Goran, that’s good to know
  2. Hi just wondering why it’s taken so long to get the altitude boxes sorted in the Synthetic vision. Hasn’t worked for a long time.

  4. When I flew FSX I bought a Catalina Flying boat. It was very well done and like the real plane you had to fly it by the numbers or you would damage your engines. They setup a radio frequency you could tune to and listen to some music out of the 40’s. It was only one song but it was quite cool listening to it while flying along.
  5. Hi guys, not really an aviation question though it is my machine that XPlane runs on. Do any of you have an Aorus X570 pro WiFi board running the latest Bios F12. For the life of me, if I try F6b and above, I can not boot into windows. For the best Stability I run F4. I even tried Linux on a bootable USB drive and still the same results. Any help would be much appreciated.
  6. Hi thanks for the reply. I don’t know why the door became ajar because I was only flying at FL20. After I restarted X- plane it went back to normal. All sorted Cheers. I think it was 11.50
  7. Hi I have an issue with my Passenger door not closing properly. Probably the only way to repair it is get a new Airframe but in the real world would you be able to repair the door? If so is there anyway you could include this in the maintaince Area.
  8. Hi just wondering where the joystick/button mapping is kept. I have installed another copy of X-plane with the Vulcan update. I want to use the same buttons for that without having to set it up again. Thanks in advance.
  9. Hi I had this issue just happen. Thought it may help with diagnostics. TBM900_Log.txt Log.txt
  10. Hi Goran, I thought I only added it to my Carenado aircraft. Ill take a closer look. Thanks for having a look
  11. Hi Goran, just wondering if you know what may have caused this crash. I include both logs. Regards brett Log.txt TBM900_Log.txt
  12. Hi, just wondering if these issues are being looked at. From a rear view the wing Strobe lights bleed through the wing at a certain angle. Also I have mentioned this before but the rudder trim does not push the rudder in the direction it should do. Eg, I have a 65 knot left to right crosswind so from the rear I should see the rudder pointing towards the left to compensate. The Trim is pointing Right but the rudder stays straight. I know this is not a big deal in the grand scheme of things, but hey we all like perfection.
  13. Somehow I have lost the pathways in my Synthetic Vision. Please any suggestions on how to get it back. It is turned on in the PDF. Thanks
  14. Hi I have XPlane running in Experimental mode. According to the new info Prop Wash has been implemented to give a better effect. Taking off with the rudder set in the middle, yes I know it’s supposed to be to the Green mark, but I’m not seeing any pull to the left. According to Austin I should be hard on the rudder trying to keep it on the centre line. Any thought guys.
  15. I repaired them by cutting the cable as closed to where they route internally, to give me as much to play with, and soldered on a new 3wire cable to bypass the damaged one. I had to drill a few holes in the rudder casing, one to zip tie the cable and 2 to route from under the foot pedal into the circuit board connector. Now it works as normal. I belong to the XPlane Facebook page and on there I put a couple of pics showing what I had done. I reset up using the Thrustmaster software and XPlane hardware config and back to happy flying. In the end it wasn’t that hard to fix.
  16. My Rudder pedals are around 3 years old and my Right Toe Brake has failed. Cable fault. $220.00 NZ. Out of warranty so going to have to pull them apart to repair myself. Should have spent extra and gone for MFG Crosswinds. Let you know how I get on.
  17. Hi probably due to 11.40 B8. Just in case someone wanted to check out the logs. Log.txt TBM900_Log.txt
  18. Thanks Goran, should have known.
  19. Hi Just wondering if anyone can figure out what is going on. Have done a full reinstall but id setup for a long flight, had to go and do something, when I came back it had disappeared. Have included logs. Many thanks in advance. TBM900_Log.txt Log.txt
  20. Yes I have updated to 11.35 and I have not noticed any issues with the TBM
  21. So the 3600 does make a difference, as expected, not earth shattering. However frame rates have increased from my Intel 2500k @ 4.8gig. I find that airports seem to gobble the most. On the ground at KSEA looking forward from the default 172 I got 48 fps, on the runway ready for take off, I got 34fps then at 2000 feet I was getting 45fps. Flying over the city which is North of the airport FPS mainly stayed the same as over the country side. Odd times it does go up to 50fps but that could be viewing over water. Mainly I fly the TBM900 and still get mid 30's to low 40's. My CPU has the default 65 watt cooler on it. In the future I will install a better cooler and push it a little bit further. I am happy with my purchase.
  22. Hi all, just thought I would let you know that at present I am in the throws of upgrading my Xplane computer. Just doing some open board setup and trying to use a MSI 560 TI with a Gigabyte Aorus X570. This is not the card that will go in the final build but I found it won’t fit. At the bottom of the 560 TI towards the back is a VRM heatsink sitting proud so when you try to put it in, it hits the Chipset. I would say there would be a large percentage of chipsets that would cause this problem with this card. The card I will be using is a GTX 1080 and that fits fine. Chances of someone using this combination is probably low but I thought I would share it. I am using an AMD 3600 with 16 Gig of 3200 mhz of memory. For anyone that’s interested I will let you know, hopefully of a frame rate jump. Should be finished tomorrow.
  23. And once again restarting the sim cured the ailment. Cheers
  24. Hi upon descending on Auto pilot my plane went out of control pitching to the right. I discovered that the Yoke would only operate from centre to right. Even from outside the ailerons followed suit. Check Maintenance logs and everything is ok. I don't know if the aircraft behaves correctly, not being a pilot, but using Left Rudder would bring the plane left so was able to control and managed to land safely. Any thought anyone or is it time for a new Airframe. I have had two incidents where nothing showed up, maybe Hot Start need to look a bit deeper into this. Log.txt TBM900_Log.txt
  25. Ok so after a restart the door was closed properly.
