  1. Thank you for you answer. I will do it.
  2. With a clean/raw new installation, the red crosses have disappeared. The question is now to identify the disruptive element. Which, with the number of sceneries and orthophotos installed will be quite a work.

    Setup airframes

    When a specific aiframe is set up, with its livery and registration number (with its particular typography), what is the file that stores the corresponding data in the TBM900 folder? Interesting information when reinstalling the plane.
  4. I have tried this morning to start a new clean situation by erasing the "state" folder before launching the sim. With no different result.
  5. As promised, I'm back... With unsatisfying results... When I put aside all plugins as recommanded, at first it seems to have fixed the things. But when quiting all protecting flames and thinking to put them back in the cabin, I opened the main door, which definitely refused to shut back. Trying to shut it back using my quadrant dedicated push button, or the left menu. Shutting down the sim and re-launching it was of no effect. The main door stayed in opened position. With no other solution, I then reinstalled the plane. Without the am mentioned plugins, when I intended to start the reinstalled plane, I had again the same red crosses accross my gauges (see joined pic). And was able to start the engine after reloading the plane from de developper menu again. I stay a little bit puzzled... I'm of course ready to try any solution that you may recommand. Thank you in advance for your answer. Log.txt TBM900_Log.txt
  6. Bingo! It works! Now, try each of the plugin to see which one is responsible. Next step then. I will keep you informed. Thank you again for your dedication.
  7. Will do that asap and revert to you
  8. As proposed, as joined files : The 3 last flightlogs from the X-Plane 11\Output\TBM900\flightlog folder TBM900_Log.txt, and, Log.txt TBM900_Log.txt Log.txt log_211017_145148_LFBP.csv log_211017_145311_LFBP.csv log_211017_145321_LFBP.csv
  9. Thank you for your answer. The aircraft seems properly activated, and my license is confirmed each an every time I launch the sim. I only have basic controls, yoke, quadrant, and no external avionic. And once reloaded, I fly the lady without any problem. If you need logs or pics, I may of course provide. Anyway, this is my preferred plane, and I do hope that, coming X-Plane 12, an updated version will be available.
  10. That's quite a recent development. When I'm loading some filed flight (situation), or starting some new flight with the TBM 900, once loaded, and pushing the crashbar up, all engine gauges and all radio or nav frequencies indicators are crossed out with red crosses, and it is impossible to start the engine. A solution is available: in the Developpers section of the menu, click on "reload plane", and things are back to normal. However, what is causing this systematic failure? Is there a way to avoid that? Thank you in advance for your answers.
  11. XP12 is on top of the news today. I have seen that independant developers will be given access to a beta version, and that aircrafts transition from XP11 to XP12 should not be a major problem. Is X-Aviation providing for some adapted version of the TBM?
  12. Quite odd as new versions, as far as I am concerned, keep the airframe in the same state. To prevent this, I make a backup of my last state after each flight.
  13. @mrogers0547 A short flight this afternoon from some saved situation. I took as a routine, the same as systematically calibrating yoke and pedals, to previously fix all systems. Starting up was nominal. Thank you again for the tip.
  14. @mrogers0547 Thank you for the information. You're right. It's when loading some saved situation. This afternoon again I had the same. Will try your solution first opportunity. Thank you again.
  15. I regularly check the maintenance manager, and in its last state, all was fully green. I also make a backup of the state folder after each flight, just in case... Deleting the state folder will be a pity, as I will lose all my flying time. But, if it is the only way to solve the problem, so be it! Thank for your quick and dedicated help! Flying the TBM is first a pleasure, and a strong derivative during those confined times! Have a nice day.
  16. None. Except Saitek throttle quadrant where I control AP, trims, starter, throttle toggle to taxi zone, low and high idle positions, inert sep, flaps, parking brake and warning cancellations. I systematically calibrate yoke and pedals before any flight.
  17. A situation which happens from time to time when loading the TMB 900 in X-Plane 11. The plane has successfully completed a flight and landed in some airport. It has been properly shut down, duly respecting the idle time before feathering, and cutting off. The plane is properly protected with static, pitot and engine inlet covers. The situation has then been registered, such as allowing resuming of the travel at a further occasion. When loading such situation to resume the trip, and when raising the crash bar, we can see the following : 1/ the standby instrument, when aligning, whatever be the barometric setting, mentions an altitude exceeding FL560. Full alignment doesn't restore proper functionning. 2/ all engine figure meters (except torque) include a big red cross on some dark red background. Same for all nav and com frequencies indicators. Although voltage is correct, the start of the engine will fail. The only curative solution is to, in the "developper" tab of the menu, reload the aircraft (without reloading scenery). It may happen that it is necessary to shut the sim, and start with a new flight. Is there something that I forgot and induced such situation ? Thank you for any response and advice.
  18. My experiment about recovering an inflight situation: It's an IFR flight making use of 124thATC. A flight plan is therefore filed in the G1000. I have, according to Goran's tip, checked the box "Start with engine running". When re-starting the flight, first pause the flight. Check that your yoke and pedals are correctly calibrated (if not, the autopilot may disconnect, and recovering the plane at FL 300 may be a problem...) AP must be in HDG mode. Check you radio is on the center frequency, and request filing ot the flight plan. The flight plan starts from the departure airport, but the first leg must be your next turning point. Check on your G1000 that the current leg is activated. And it works ! Also to be noted : Flight recovery works only if you do not have made meanwhile some other flight with the TBM900 in some other location. A solution is to systematically make some backup of the "X-Plane 11\Output\TBM900\state" file when shutting down the sim.
  19. This plane is a wonder. Some new flight today, with real weather, from Paris to Cannes (with a few days of advance for the Festival...) FL 310. ISA +0°C. Torque : 88, NG : 101.8, FF 56 Gph, IAS 195 Kias, tail wind 11 kts. GPS groundspeed : 335 kts. Some fascinating thing to note is the play of trims' tuning with PA. On take off, rudder trim half way between the neutral position and the green mark, and elevator trim on the green mark. Once lift off completed, flight control at the recommended 114 kts speed. At full torque, rudder trim goes fully right. Once the navigation level reached, rudder trim comes back to neutral. In case of significant Xwind, rudder trim goes windward. I had not noticed that on previous versions. I am a flight simulator fan since 1996, and it's the first time that I see such a perfection. Waouh !
  20. Yesterday, I flew at FL310, with headwinds of about 13/14 kts. GPS showed groundspeed of 314 kts. We are not very far...
  21. Fantastic improvement. This afternoon, a serie of landings by hands on small GA fields, all successful, which is a first. Congratulations to the devs. And also to a really dedicated support ! Gilbert

    Regular hotstarts

    Answer may be in the shutdown procedure. When at the parking position before shutting down, first put the lever on Flight Idle, bleed switch off, time one minute min, then low idle for fifteen seconds before cutoff. Starting the engine for a new flight is usually easy. Check temperature in the green sector during all starting procedure, if not, fuel cutoff immediately.

    Sexist plane?

    I am enjoying this plane a bit more every day! I am presently in a long range trip, from Tarbes (LFBT), its manufacturing place, to Kathmandu (VNKT). The present leg took me from Baku (UBBB) to Dushanbe (UTTD). A 3,5 hours flight. Better to do it with a copilot. The payload manager allows to add a copilot, and you may even decide if such will be a male or female copilot. Unfortunately, even if you decide to fly with a female copilot, you will discover, if during flight you take an exterior view, the copilot will be male notwithstanding. A pity... Any remedy? Thank you in advance.
