  1. Thanks, I did not know about the apt.dat file, that was the piece of missing info I needed. Looking into this solved an other problem, turns out the Toliss A319 did not had a database problem, it looks if the runway is long enough, if not you can not program the mcdu. I just tried the beta version of gizmo, but It did not solve the gizmo crash. But I leave it like it is for now, before I change things to get worse I am very good at that
  2. Although it is not a problem, I do not like the fact that I can not find the cause (probably because trouble shooting is a big part of my job ) Just a thought, I also have the Hotstart TBM900, this uses Gizmo too. It just is updated and asked if I wanted to upgrade Gizmo to the beta version. Could it be a conflict between 2 Gizmo versions (xplane using the TBM version for the 737) ? An other option, could it be something with the navigation databases, I have a big number of payware planes and some come with a nav database it needs At some point I got a lot of problems with this. I
  3. It is normally not as bad as it looks. But thanks to you I found a problem. I have Xorganizer and normally I start that first, choose only plugins I need for the plane or just because I want them, only sceneries I need (and global scenery improvements) and often also only one plane or some type of flying (I have a bunch of preset-profiles). But even fully loaded my FPS is good and everything works fine. But I think I know now what went wrong. I used the wrong profile (for bushflying/heli) But to be sure I now tried my "big tour africa in airliner" profile. Same fault but now no errors i
  4. I just tried it. Spawned, choose preflight: ready to fly (normally I only use cold and dark) , pressed RTE, entered FXMM, pressed pushbutton left of ORIGIN then entered FAWM, pressed the key right from DEST. No response for a couple of seconds and then the same fault message appears. But this time the line numbers are different. They are 2232.192, 2232.199, 2232.200 and 2382.217 The rest is the same. I aborted the flight and included the xplane log file. Maybe that helps. Also info from some other fmc files. No clue if they are useful. But it is not a real problem, I click away the popup
  5. Hi Jan, I just tried through X-aviation but that is still version 1.33. But now I see that In this post from 23 January you talk about the next update so I must learn to read better, Sorry for that. The version I fly is 1.33 and that gives the Gismo crash. The strange thing is that it never did this before. It started just before I opened this topic. I am flying a historic world trip that someone on the org forum made following a French book, I am now in Afrika at leg 87 and it started in an area with very few airports around leg 70 or so, Maybe a hint, here were several airp
  6. Thanks Jan, If I understand it right the update is going by mail, any clue when that is going to happen ? Or did the mail got lost on the digital highway ?
  7. Almost every time I want to fill in the destination airport in the FMC I get this screen. The strange thing is that it does not seems to matter. I close it and fly without a single problem. I have not tried the update yet because I do not know how (to lazy to google at this time and the plane works so well that I am a bit afraid to jinx it Thanks to this plane I am completely hooked on flying airliners, I now have a whole bunch (incl Toliss A319, Rotate mad dog, FF767, FJ727 and FJ732 ) But the IXEG is still my favourite airliner.

  8. Thanks, I did not know about the IRS ATT mode. As an EE I thought automatically ATT is attenuation and you need it when you are close to a transmitter but now I learned it stands for Attitude and it turns out an IRS is not a GPS. Very interesting, my main interests in planes is the technical aspect and for most physics and systems. But it is a lot to learn if you only flew GA bushplanes and helicopters without things like route planning (incl weather and fuel) There is a lot of info on the net but because most things are abbreviated it is hard to search and understand if you are new to ai
  9. Sorry, a bit a stupid question. I screwed up major above an amazing bad weather flight above Greenland, Low above snow covered mountains, IFR in a snowstorm, but also in the sun above beautiful cloud formations. Instead of zooming I switched the left IRS to off. I then switched EFI both on 2 and IRS both on R. But now I had no route on the map because I had not programmed the FO's FMS. (could not find a Direct too like in GA GPS). What would a real pilot do: - I can program a fix to the destination point - or type in the whole flightplan in the FO FMS - I know my loca
  10. Strange, the rain effect now works like it should. I made a mistake with the weather-radar tutorial. I started somewhere else much more north and when I was above 5000 ft the raindrops became a lot bigger and looked very much like snow. I really needed the wipers to see something. Very cool. Are there plans (for XP11 ) to add a random faults option to the 737 ? ? I know I can select faults to practice procedures but the thing I like from f.i. the 727 is that random things go wrong, sometimes a lightbulb but last week my gear did not come down because the hydraulic fluid was empty. (to
  11. Found it, the GTN750 GPS plugin was the problem. I use that only for GA planes so tested this as the last plugin not thinking it would gave problems because I do not use it in the 737. It turns out it is not the plugin itself, but If you open it from the XP plugin menu, it makes a .ini file in the directory of the plane you are flying. It also promotes itself to master-gps. And even if you do not ever use it , as long as the .ini file is there, it stays master. I have not tried it for the 737 but you can disable the master status in the GTN menu and still use it as a slave, I do that in
  12. Thanks Jan for always answering so fast. If you had more planes I would buy them :-) I just tried it, yesterday evening I had to much fun trying to fly your weather radar tutorial flight (I lost my way and flew into the ground but I really enjoyed it) So I now just tried it with all custom scenery, plugins and other aircraft switched off, (except lua) and now it works fine, so it must be some conflict between plugins or so. Next step finding the guilty one, not hard but a bit time consuming.
  13. Solved the sound, if I move all XP sliders to zero all your sliders work fine. A big improvement, the "irritating" high amplitude hiss turned out to be the AC and now I can turn it down a bit. The VOR problem is still a problem. I started the plane as "ready to fly" just to be sure, If I then set everything up like you the result is the same but the problem is that if I turn the course on the MCP on the FO side the magenta bar in the FO HSI moves out of the centre like it should do. If I do that on the captain site, nothing happens, the magenta bar does not move and always keeps aligne
  14. 3 things: 1) Practicing oldschool VOR navigation, I found a problem. If I switch the HSI to VOR/ILS I only get it to work for the captain if I set the EFI switch to "both on 2" , In the "normal" position only the FO HSI works like it should , in "both on 1" none of them work like they should, In "normal" The captains HSI pointer does work but states "from" (when it should be to) when the FO's states "to" and the magenta "bar" in the pilots HSI always stays aligned, while the FO's bar moves lateral like it should. I must be doing something wrong but no clue what. I had both nav
  15. Update: the fuelmeter, could it be this lines in the afc file ? Test mode at 0 ? GROUP Fuel gauge 3 SHOW_LESS 2.000000 [0] SHOW_EQUAL 0.000000 [0] SHOW_GREATER 0.000000 ixeg/733/fuel/fuel_test_mode[0] I opened the AFC in notepad to set experimental to 1 (faster as using planemaker) and then noticed this
