Tinmouse awsome freeware 737-200 update 31JAN05

Recommended Posts

I don't mess around with freeware, but I installed this airplane and all the extras that it comes with, and I was blown away! This is an amazing freeware aircraft, and once it is complete it qualifies as payware quality. I especially like the oil pressure gauges for the two engines, they are both made for a 737-2 but one looks newer, as if one of the gauges broke and then maintenance just grabbed one laying on their work station or something and installed it, just like on AWACS, love it.There is only one thing that I didn't understand, in the model you can't see the fans spinning, and there is only one paint that I am aware of.This plane is awesome!!!jeff USAF

Its Erick Cantu's Kitty Hawk model for the 737-200 there are literally tons of paint for this bird. Just go do a check by date for Kitty Hawk, Eric Cantu, 737, Frank Idone and you wil find tons of absolutely beautiful textures for her. You need his latest model also.Some great sounds also.Hornit

You almost have to stick your head inside the intake to see the fans spinning... :):-outtahttp://publish.hometown.aol.com/p3superb/i...s/sign_name.jpgThere is a fine line between "hobby" and "mental illness".- unknown"My daddy gives me up, to fight for you"- a US Military Members Child

Thanks Dave. Yeah I just read the directions like I should have in the beginning and got through most of it. I am having a problem deciphering the part about adding fssound.dll. I alredy have that in my modules folder so I add the part to the FS9 config and when I try to select the airplane I get the dreaded CTD. Can anybody help me out again.Thanks

Hey guys, I agree, this panel is one of the best, and it will be better than payware quality when it's finished.I'm just wondering to some of you users, does the pitch hold work? It used to work, and not it doesn't. For example, I set the FD to 15degrees nose up, takeoff, fly at an angle of 15degrees nose up put on both AP paddles, and then the CWS roll works fine, but the pitch hold doesn't work at all. It won't hold pitch, what ever I do. It's becoming quite annoying now, because while it is increasing my skill having to manually do all the pitch work, when your trying to climb/descend above 10,000 and you need to check things elseware like charts etc it becomes quite hard. Just wondered if there were any ideas why it won't work anymore, since it used to.I am using the latest panel, kittyhawks model (although unrelated) and the latest FDE on the website. If there any ideas about why it won't work anymore please tell me, and also if you need more details just ask. Please and thankyou, I hope I can solve this annoying problem very soon!

Based on your description you're doing everything correct related to fssound.dll. So, if you do not add fssound.dll, what happens? Try this: add[OldModules] FSSound.dll=1HostSB.dll=1at the end of your Config.cfg file. Dave Vega

You know, I've been considering the idea of forcing people to take a JT8D maintenance course before using any of my JT8D powered models.I doubt you could work it into an install file though, but IF I COULD! :-hah

Are you using the Charles Fox airfile that can be found on the tinmouse.org website. I was having trouble with pitch until I replaced the kittyhawk airfile with Charles's as per the instructions. Give it a try.BlairCYOW

I am using Charles Foxes latest airfile from the tinmouse.org website. If I find anything, I will post it, but I can't understand why it won't work. I'll post it on the board over at tinmouse' site if I can't find a solution by the weekend!

hiI love to fly wtih the Tinmouse 737-200 panel. But is there any way to make it compatible with FS Navigator ?? I have tried but couldn't get the panel to co-operate with FSNav.Jani

Though FSNav won't control the airplane completely, you can have FSNav do the lateral navigation. Ensure your AP is on, and you're in heading mode. Dave Vega

Does this plane come with a VC? I'm a TrackIR junky and I tend to spend a lot of my time flying in the VC :}

What a great Panel this is, I absolutely adore flying thie Aircraft.Since I installed the latest update, I do not seem to have the latest modifications to the panel, eg. cabin chimes etc, that new part of the panel does not show up, also the upper radio panel is not showing either.:) Any ideas ?Bill
