  1. Thanks Coop. After I posted my message, I flew an ILS approach to Van Nuys (KVNY) and Pathway boxes appeared 2.7 NM from the airport. I just flew an RNAV approach to El Monte (KEMT) but didn't get Pathway boxes at any stage of the flight. The SVS system is otherwise amazing, so its developer may be able to sort out the Pathway issue.
  2. I have turned on the Pathway feature and have entered flight plans that include Instrument Approaches. But the Pathway feature it isn't working for me. On rare occasions, the Pathway boxes will display for just a brief moment, but then they disappear. Most of the time, they never appear at all. I know that expecting Pathway to work is expecting a lot. But this sim is so realistic, it even has air vents that twist open and shut, so it triggers big expectations. I'm using SR20 Version 1.0.1, and all of the rest of its features work perfectly. Is the Pathway feature still in development, or have
  3. These settings helped me a lot. Thanks. The important part was to set the Curve to "Linear." I set my second point at 0.80 (instead of 0.90). Otherwise, this is exactly what I did, after I had a great deal of difficulty taxiing the plane. Now, the plane taxis just fine.

    Shadows in Cockpit

    Thanks Coop. Your advice fixed the issue for me.

    Shadows in Cockpit

    This sim is so realistic that it even displays shadows in the cockpit. This is a problem for me, because the shadows make the control panel buttons and knobs too dark to read. I've looked for a way to turn off the shadows, but I can't find out how to do it. I'm willing to dig into a settings file, if it can't be done from a menu item. But I've looked at individual files, and don't find one that's obviously shadow settings. I've also looked at X-Plane's own settings menu. The menu doesn't say anything about inside-the-plane shadows, and my "shadows on scenery" box is not checked. My X-Plan
  6. I too am using a RealSimGear setup. Mine is a G1000 Suite. And my combo works fine. I say that simply to convey that you have reason to hope yours will work too. When you say the "plane just sits there," after priming and trying to start, do you mean the plane doesn't make any sounds at all, not even during your prime, or that you can hear the prime and the prop spins a bit but the engine doesn't start? If it's an engine-doesn't-start problem, try setting the throttle at a much lower power setting than the one you've been using. I've found that the engine won't start with the throttl
  7. Is it possible you shut down XP without first shutting down the SR20 in particular? I ask, because I've had the SR22's own battery -- the in-sim battery -- run down when I've left the avionics on but the engine (and therefore the alternator) off. The "ability" to kill the SR20's battery is just one way the TorqueSim Cirrus perfectly models a real Cirrus. Re-installing the SR20 may have fixed the problem, because then you then started with a fresh in-sim battery.
  8. Wow! That did it! The PFD and MFD fit perfectly now. And they popup in exactly right right location. Thanks a million Coop. Lon
  9. So far, SR22 version 1.1 looks great. However, I'm using it with a version 1 of RealSimGear. That RSG version has low resolution (800 x 600) displays, so the SR22 PFD and MFD are too big, and resizing them to fit my RSG displays is difficult and time consuming -- not the way I want to begin a sim session. Is there any way this can be fixed? I was hoping for a menu item in SR22 version 1.1. But even if a menu item is difficult for you to create, is there a file whose code I can modify that will enable the PFD and MFD to fit my low resolution RSG setup?
  10. I'm standing by, but the new video doesn't seem to have been posted. Or were you sending the video to someone else, directly rather than by posting it?
  11. Try moving the throttle back a bit -- i.e., give the engine less fuel -- before and even while you are cranking. I know that's counter-intuitive, but the plane doesn't start if the throttle is too far forward, and "too far" includes what appears to be just cracked open.
  12. Is 11.50R1 the most recent version of X-Plane -- the one released just 2 or 3 days ago? I ask, because I installed the most recent X-Plane release, and I'm able to start the SR22 without difficulty, using the steps that are listed in the POH for a real SR22: Battery Master Switches - Both On Mixture - Full Rich Throttle - Full Forward Fuel Pump - Prime and then Boost Throttle - Back to 1/4 inch Open Ignition - Start Throttle - Back to 1000 RPM Mixture - Lean (to the X in Mixture) I haven't tried this yet on the SR22T, nor have I tried a hot s
  13. It seems that pressing the ENTER button is an extra and easily-forgotten step, but this is the way the Garmin Perspective works in a real plane too.
  14. ricktana, Thanks for your response. The code that I thought was incorrect was in fact correct. The problem was that RSG created new firmware for the SR22, and because I bought the SR22 just as soon as it was released, I installed the older firmware.
