  1. I see, thanks for the clarification. I too assumed (since I thought I'd had the latest version installed) that something had been corrupted. I certainly do not recall seeing the wires before today (quite obvious with the colours of course - you can't miss them). Yes, must be because the pilot view has changed. That's fine - I am sure I'll learn to love the splash of colour.... doesn't look very safe though. Shouldn't an engineer have fixed it? (Had another flight this afternoon, BTW, and still all going well re. 'bank/roll' (so to speak))
  2. Thanks. I only have Windows Defender active, but no, I didn't disable it. I do have a backup of my previous installation though, I could copy over files from there: would that fix this? Or I could even replace the new installation with the old one I suppose (if necessary), given that reinstalling did not fix the problems I was experiencing.
  3. Wondering why (after reinstalling the aircraft yesterday) I now see bare wires hanging from below the MCP.. there's no clickspot I can find to close any little door. Googled and searched this forum for 'wires' but no results came up. Also, in the OH panel, what was my logo light is now labelled 'INOP'. Just cosmetic (I assume; hardly 'deal breakers' of course), but would prefer to have the a/c as it was (certainly no wires hanging out from the panel). Thank you.
  4. Jan, you will be almost as relieved as I am to know that this seems to be fixed. I found at first that replacing the miscellaneous.prf file with the default one stopped the banking. But then if I re-engaged my IXEG joystick profile (from the XP onscreen joystick menu), the roll returned. So I deleted the IXEG profile and used the default one instead. I was able to map both the toggle gear and the TOGA function to the joystick in that default joystick profile.. and the past several test flights have been just fine, nice and straight after TO. I don't want to tempt fate though: 'tomorrow is
  5. I really thought this would do it - as I have a backup, I uninstalled (via the uninstall.exe and then installed again, via the installer. Fresh setup). Then back to the runway. Same thing. Here's the screenshot. However.... Given this result (I perhaps should have done this before), I tried the 733 in my 'vanilla' test installation of XP11.50: I simply used symlinks from the relevant IXEG folders (and Gizmo) in my full XP11.50 setup across to the clean installation. In that test, the a/c flies straight as a die. So no doubt there is something in my XP setup that is interfering with
  6. Nice call!! This doesn't look right (did wing lift and wing drag), does it?
  7. As I say, I too had no roll yesterday... I don't know if removing the Saitek drivers has done this, but clearly most people will not have Saitek drivers installed and do not have this issue. I am also at my wits end. I certainly appreciate your patience with it... Here are four screenshots. First is just before I start the takeoff roll, then three taken at about 5 second intervals after the a/c leaves the ground. The roll to the right is not triggered by anything I press on the joystick - it happens whether I bring the gear up or not. All I did whilst taking these screenshots was pull ba
  8. I usually check the profile before I fly - yes, it always shows my IXEG profile, no problem. Seems all is OK now, apart from that major issue of the a/c rolling over after takeoff - that's a separate thread of course. The A/T seems fine now that I have watched the videos and am more accurate in what I do!
  9. That was true for a few days. This morning the problem is back, even with no cpl window open. I even dug out an old MS Sidewinder joystick and tried that instead, just to determine that it isn't being caused by the Saitek hardware, but immediately after takeoff the 733 starts banking to the right with that joystick as well, and within 10 seconds, if I don't intervene, I am getting 'bank angle' warnings.. and the a/c will soon tip over and crash. Not expecting any revelations by way of a reply, but I really don't know what else to try... I did make one change in the interim: I removed the
  10. Just to update this, for anyone vaguely interested.... I've been testing on the ground to see why I cannot bring the throttles back to idle... your screenshots were helpful Jan: one reason was indeed that they were not quite in the right position, I was too 'approximate' - I was making the right gestures I think, but in my setup at least the white frames need to be pretty much spot on over the ghost A/T indicators to work. The other issue is that I still cannot get any of my X52 buttons to work with the mapped commands - it's ridiculous. The joystick menu shows 'Toggle SPEED mode', but th
  11. Thank you very much for the screenshots - I really appreciate the time you are taking to help me with this.
  12. Well I can only agree with you - of how they work in the IXEG 733, at least - which may well be a lot closer to reality than any other 737 I fly, or I have flown, I freely acknowledge: those include Zibo's 737-800 and previously, in FS9/FSX, PMDG models: none of those being known for their slapdash programming! And of course, those aircraft are not 737-300s, I am well aware (though how differently the autothrottle operates in say the 733 and the 738, I am not sure... yet). What I don't understand (one of the things!) is why these problems with the IXEG 733 are happening now, when for mont
  13. Oh god, this is still a disaster.... as I try in vain to decelerate to taxi speed, if I look down at the pedestal my throttle levers are frozen to maximum (full forward) and no matter what I do I cannot get them to move... the a/c will start to slow down but then accelerate again in the meantime, until I run out of runway. Something basic is very wrong, but after several flights, the ending is always the same in the 733. The throttles were responsive until touchdown.. I set my X52 button to 'toggle speed mode' but it doesn't have any effect either. I am sometimes tempted, but have s
  14. Well, that always seems to be the way with me!! The Disconnect AT doesn't work at any stage - at least it very occasionally works, but mostly doesn't (which is odd in itself). Same problem whichever Saitek button I bind the command to. I don't have any Saitek software (apart from the driver) installed.. it doesn't work properly in XP11 (as you say) so there's no point. In other words, the white 'box' is aligned with 'A/T' in the ghost throttles? How would I see that I have the right throttle option at any given time, if I did not have the ghost throttles active? Given the symptom
  15. Nice flight earlier... until I came to land: I could not turn off the auto-throttle, (so of course the a/c didn't slow down). Tried (firstly), near to flare, using the joystick button assigned to 'Disengage AT', my usual method, but the AT switch remained where it was. I pulled down the AT switch in the cockpit (and/or used the disconnect on the throttle) - the AT switch moved down.. but still the a/c wouldn't decelerate (autobrakes were armed). Moved the throttles from idle up to full and back to idle... no help. Searched all the IXEG pdf files, online... found nothing that helped. This
