  1. Thanks guys, saves me the time of looking. Thanks Jan! It would be nice to use voice comms to have the ramp guys connect/disco. I have recently purchased the MCE plugin and enjoying the wonderful world of voice communications with Radar Contact and a second officer in the IXEG (the only plane I fly).
  2. Hey guys, before I spend too much time trying to track down a Dat or something I was wondering if anyone else has ever tried creating a keystroke for connecting the GPU and air...and cargo doors for good measure? Is it even possible? Anyone have the Dataref or method I can add it w/ maybe .. it has been a while since I tried this if you can't tell already. I want to create a keystroke so I can map it to my voice software. Thanks fellow Captains
  3. First off let me say Jan you are a true gem in the flight sim community for the way you handle support questions!! In my opinion no other civilian plane in any flight sim is more enjoyable or creates a better suspension of disbelief than the IXEG 737. And I have flown quite a few planes and sims over the many years I have been a simmer. I have never found myself thinking this plane was lacking in anyway only that I needed to learn to overcome a challenge. The IXEG model is the only plane I have flown over the last year. I prefer to only fly one plane and learn it inside and out as mu
  4. From the Haversine forums: Posted on July 19, 2017 12:03 by skyfox Hi, something changed in this latest ixeg 737 version that made it incompatible. I'll try to fix it in the next days with the release of a plugin update shortly. sorry for the inconvenience,
  5. I posted these on Avsim and thought these might help the next guy that buys the plane to spend more time flying and less time hunting. Just posting as a public service not as an endorsement of any product. If you found some stuff i missed I would like to see them too.

  6. Hey Buddy, Well last night I never got it to work but with a fresh start this morning and fully caffeinated I downloaded a xjoymap file from another post in this forum and it worked. I was able to map my first button. After mapping with a program like LINDA in that other flight sim -LINDA with it's nice GUI- I find this process of coding each button rather daunting. Even trying to use the GIT software to map switches is a rather convoluted process. Luckily the MCP and the GF gear panel are a more straight forward process with their included default setups. Yesterday my GF MESM
  7. Ahhh ok. So I create the file and add the code. I understand better now. I did create a file in notepad++ and saved it as xjoymap.ini just for a quick test. Pasted your code: [EHSI Range] new_command=EHSI Range dataref=ixeg/733/ehsi/ehsi_range_cpt_act description=EHSI Range values = 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 [EHSI Mode] new_command=EHSI Mode dataref=ixeg/733/ehsi/ehsi_mode_cpt_act description=EHSI Mode values = 0, 1, 2, 3, 4 saved it to G:\Xplane\X-Plane 10\Aircraft\X-Aviation\IXEG 737 Classic - my xplane folder. Did not see it in xjoymap assignmen
  8. Good to have a patient person helping! One more question then (I hope). I already have xjoymap in my pythonscripts and I can see it in the settings UI of X-Plane. So setup is good. But and I am sorry for this; How do I get the IXEG datarefs into xjoymap? Do I edit the edit the config file in notepad++ ? Copy and paste them from the 2-Interface guide. Honestly, I have done some research on this but came up with no answers.
  9. Thank you!! I just bought the 737 a couple of days ago. Great explanation! I am on my way to better understanding now. I was confusing those custom commands and datarefs. Right now I was working on XP-11 (might go back to 10. I have fixed the APU btw) . It has been a bit of a learning curve so your explanation has helped. Starting small. 1st - Basically I have button on my TM MFD (recognized as a device under Joysticks and the buttons programmable in the XP11 interface) I am trying to map to the EHSI map size. So a dataref I suppose. Are you saying I need so
  10. Yes I am new to X-Plane but love it!! So trying to get a handle on things and have read a good bit but still unsure of add the "CUSTOM MANIPULATOR DATAREFS" I was reading the 2-Interface Guide and see "For the more intrepid hardware enthusiast" and what is referred to as Manipulator datarefs (still reading about those). How do I add these more advanced commands? In my Joystick/Keyboard X-Plane control panel I only see the basic custom commands. Thank you for your patience!!
