I've had a problem ever since the model was released. FS will not load the B732adv.gau file. So I do not get any guages on the panel. Any help would be appreciated! Ben KMSP

I've been able to use the TMII with Patch 2 since it's release, and I have the free version of FSUIPC, but when I ran the Patch 3 executable tonight, it gave me an error message to the effect that "B732adv.gau" was an "unknown version", and would not continue installing the patch.I was running the patch .exe file from the fsfsconv/panel.b732ADV folder as instructed in the readme. Did I miss something?Thanks.John Gilding

I installed the Patch 3 and reinstalled the 400Hz sound. It still is way too loud. I reduced it 50% and it is still annoying. I just renamed it and it no longer plays. Is this supposed to be the 400Hz generator sound? Does it really sound that loud in the cockpit? I don't ever remember hearing a 400Hz generator sound in any other FS cockpit. Thanks, regards, Bob.

This is almost always caused by not having FSSound.dll in the FS9 modules folder.RegardsBob ScottATP IMEL Gulfstream II-III-IV-V L-300Santiago de Chile>I've had a problem ever since the model was released.

Hi John; I think the problem is your patch 2 was one of the betas I gave out. Patch 3 requires the release version. Easiest fix is to put the original b732adv.gau file into the fs9aircraftfsfsconvpanel.b732adv directory, run patch 2, then patch 3.CheersBob ScottATP IMEL Gulfstream II-III-IV-V L-300Santiago de Chile

It's a composite of the avionics cooling fans, the altimeter vibrator etc. with the 400Hz AC turned on. It is pretty noisy on the flight deck with all the equipment running.RegardsBob ScottATP IMEL Gulfstream II-III-IV-V L-300Santiago de Chile>I installed the Patch 3 and reinstalled the 400Hz sound.

Yep, that did the trick. Thanks, Bob.After Patch 3 is installed, I've got what sounds like a stick-shaker sound playing continously in the cockpit, even after a complete reinstall of the aircraft. Is there a way to modify this sound?EDIT: Please disregard my last - the sound is related to the 400 hz file, which I renamed for the time being. John G.

>Yeah, FS wont load my FSSound.dll file. Any way to fix that? Did you add the "Old Modules" entry in the FS9.cfg file? If not, refer to the Tinmouse readme file for instruction. R-

When I set up the default FS9 flight (as per your instructions) I cannot save fuel pump and battery state (I turn them off but they are always back on when I reload FS9).Thanks

Hi Bob. Thanks. I think I'll either reduce it some more,or eliminate it altogether. It's just too noisy for me. Best regards, Bob.

Hi guys,Forgive me if this is incorrect, maybe it's a bug, maybe not. It's my understanding that the "Speedbrake Armed" light should only come on when the speedbrake is in the armed position. At the moment mine seems to come on anytime the speedbrake is deployed as well.Anyway, just thought I'd mention it. It's hardly a big deal and certainly isn't stopping me from enjoying the aircraft. Thanks for all the hard work.Regards,David.

No, the panel state isn't saved from one flight to the next...yet. Another future project.But whatever you do, do not shut the battery off in the default aircraft before switching to the TinMouse. It will dork up things in the background...the ship battery in the TinMouse is modeled independently within the gauge. At present some circuits are always powered even with the batt switch off.RegardsBob ScottATP IMEL Gulfstream II-III-IV-V L-300Santiago de Chile

I got a warning when I tried to load the update 3 that, there was 'no files to update'?

The patch program has to be in the same directory as the b732adv.gau file, which should be aircraftfsfsconvpanel.b732advRegardsBob ScottATP IMEL Gulfstream II-III-IV-V L-300Santiago de Chile

Just reporting something odd - my texture folder 'texture.co' has the Delta livery, and the 'texture.dl' folder has the Continental livery.Can anyone else confirm this? Easy to fix :-)

Graeme, That is correct, a minor mistake in the initial release. Exchanging the files in both of the folders with each other fixes the problem.

The ops notes I have say that in the -200 the Speed Brake Armed light is on anytime the SB handle is unstowed.Can't find anything in two AFMs and several other tutorials to refute that, so I'll stick with behavior documented in the ops notes.RegardsBob ScottATP IMEL Gulfstream II-III-IV-V L-300Santiago de Chile

Or just change the folder names and swap the extensions.CheersBob ScottATP IMEL Gulfstream II-III-IV-V L-300Santiago de Chile

AUTOBRAKE BEHAVIORI don't know how it is handled in the real 737, but i had expected the autobrakes to be automatically set to OFF when manual braking is applied. With Patch 3 (and before) it stays on the MIN/MED/MAX settings after landing, even when applying manual braking.Is this a bug?Still i am very happy with the new autobrake behavior, i find it very realistic now :)

I noticed that there seems to be a small problem with the flight dynamics in the air file.. I tried a flight and it seems that the plane only climbs on high throttle settings, even while trying to hold on level flight..and even if I try to bring down the nose by pushing my joystick all the way forward...and NO, it's not my joystick settings..all is well, and it works fine on all other planes. In fact, the only way I can even get the nose to begin to drop is with throttle at full idle, flaps, AND airbrakes (forward slash)...Brian :-hmmm
