  1. I fully agree with you. The FPS and smooth simulation in VR are the best of the IXEG733 compared to other similar aircraft models in this class of advanced systems. There is no simulated toilet seat, no openable hatch for hand luggage, open tables etc - personally I do not miss it (only door opening is missing (!!!)) But the interior of the cockpit and sounds - it is a world championship. The only thing I miss in IXEG is the lack of in VR mode, the ground handling menu (GPU), refueling, weight settings etc - this should be available from the tablet (+ better pushback option). Besides, it's my "Number One" in my hangar (recently next to Q4XP - but in stability and FPS, IXEG remains the best)
  2. I am surprised that still many new released great model aircraft do not support VR technology to a satisfactory degree (at least at the time of product release). VR is no longer a niche technology for a handful of enthusiasts - it's a large group of users, I think much wider than the numbers of statistics indicate. Personally, I lose interest in the product (even when it's as perfect as the C650) when it doesn't provide reasonably flawless VR support. I do not understand the developers' justification (I am not pointing a finger at anyone here ) that no one in the team has VR goggles. This is a funny translation, because used VR equipment can now be purchased for a very affordable price.

    The IXEG sound menu is one thing. The second - the main sound menu in XP. Sometimes it happens to me that some volume sliders (especially engine volume) are pushed to the left (without my intervention). I have never discovered the cause of this phenomenon
  4. I suggest that you do the following (if you have Honeycomb Bravo): 1) from the folder: "...: \ X-Plane 11 \ Resources \ joystick configs\ " delete two files (for safety, it is best move it a safe place (e.g. to the desktop)): - "HoneycombBravoThrottle_Mac.Joy" - "HoneycombBravoThrottle_Win.Joy" 2) then delete from the folder "...: \ X-Plane 11 \ Resources \ plugins\ " "AFC_Bridge" plug (as above - put, for example, on the desktop) 2a) if you had any other Honeycomb Bravo configuration profiles, copy the whole folder to a safe place: "honeycomb_profiles" (it's inside folder "AFC_Bridge"). 3) download the last version of Honeycomb Yoke & Throttle Software for XP from here: https://flyhoneycomb.com/pages/drivers 4) Start XP, do a calibration and it's best to create a new profile in Joystick settings in the XP menu.
  5. Of course, that's what I meant. If you already have a new copy of XP - do not copy the old "preferences" folder. My point was to delete the contents of this folder while you are still struggling with stata (your original) XP version.
  6. Have you tried (before you do a fresh clean XP installation) to remove the contents of the 'preferences' folder: ....: \ X-Plane 11 \ Output \ preferences \ ??? (i.e. move it a safe place or copy and rename - so as not to lose the joystick settings etc)
  7. Maybe it's worth publishing though. Even small tweaks are better than nothing. ;-)
  8. In general, I don't like popups either. However, in the case of an FMC, this would facilitate data entry. Now, I keep hitting the desk or throttle (Honeycom Bravo) when handling FMC in VR. And setting up the FMC with a laser beam is a torment ;-) .
  9. 1) why are there such strange "pawls" in the Flap "1" and "15" positions? And what are they for ? 2) is there no "voice" in 733 saying: "V1", "Vr" etc during take off ??? 3) or is it just me, but in VR it is not possible to use checklists (pulled from the top of the cockpit), even though the controller's action field is active (green)? Thanks for explanation
  10. ... I didn't even dare to dream about it
  11. I know that the topic has already been discussed, but I will ask ... Does creating a dataref function so that a GPU Car can be assigned to any key (without having to open a window) require a lot of work on the part of the developers before a major update (if any) comes out ??? In VR, it spoils the immersion.
  12. I can see that the object of my interest even has smooth animation ;-)
  13. Yes, of course I know it. The documentation is great. Thank you very much for your help once again. It is a real pleasure to get to know and explore this plane, when it is so realistically reproduced. Thanks ;-)
  14. Sorry, but I have a small request to clarify the procedure for switching from FLT to GRD after landing. When exactly should this be done? Before or after turning off the engines? According to the checklist: AIR COND & PRESS (AS INSTALLED) .............................................. ............ 1 PACK, BLEED ON, GRD Is it normal that the CABIN CLIMB indicator jumps momentarily to very high values when switching from FLT to GRD ???
  15. Is window "rattling" (or not) simulated in IXEG B733 ?
  16. Thanks. This information confused me a bit: I understood it as if there was no need to manually switch to the FLT position after takeoff, and the system would automatically behave like in the FLT position. I watched a lot of movies on YT and I haven't seen anyone manually switch from GRD to FLT after takeoff - hence my question and doubts. ;-) Now, I can see the detailed checklists say this: GRD -> FLT - po START-UP engines FLT -> GRD - AFTER LANDING
  17. I have such a stupid question. I read and more or less understand the operation of the FLT / GRD switch in different modes (AUTO, STBY, and MAN). But I wonder, in what real situations does the switch switch to the FLT position ??? And, as a side note, cool site : https://flight-school.do.am/
  18. Thank You very much. This great plane is all the more perfect thanks to Your support and assistance. ;-)
  19. HYD PUMP ELEC 2 (A) and ELEC 1 (B) - when to turn on ??? I watched some on YT videos of B733 booting from Cold & Dark state and saw various times when people turn on HYD PUMP ELEC 2 (A) and ELEC 1 (B). Some do it after plugging in the GPU, others after starting the APU, and still others after starting the main engines. What is the correct procedure?
  20. I read somewhere (thread from 2016) that there will be an option to set "unreal" shorter IRS time "quick align". Will the idea of setting the time menu eg "semi-real" = 3 minutes appear in a future update ???
  21. Thanks. So I will continue to use XPRealistic to shake ;-)
  22. Sorry, I found nothing on this. Does this effect work in the current version v1.33 ??? I didn't notice any difference when the effects is turned on. I only checked in VR.
  23. Thank you very much for looking into this problem. It's not a big deal, but I know the fix would please Bravo users a lot. Lots of health and a good day ;-)
