Flying RXP GTN in XP11 Beta

Recommended Posts

Now that X-Plane 11 NDA has been lifted, I'd like to share a screenshot of the RXP GTN 650 in the XP11 Beta Baron 58!

It is very nice a sim indeed. It might appear difficult to transition when used to FS(X), and even though I've been using X-Plane for years now, I'm still inhabited with FS(X) habits (keyboard shortcuts mostly).

 

I've been flying simulators since FS on the C64 (the ZX81 sim won't count really LOL), and rarely got excited by a new simulator, except FU2, FS9, and XP9. XP11 is THE game changer in my opinion.

 

As for the window, we are yet to make it work in the beta but we are looking into this!

 

Again, let me take this opportunity to remind: the XP11 GTN will be released as a free update for our XP10 GTN customers!

Came here looking for this answer, assume the 750 is compatible with XP11?

 

I have the flight1 gtn 750 for FSX. If I install the Reality XP version will it conflict in any way?

It is working in XP11 as-is, with a couple minor issues with the menus mostly.

 

This is to be expected because XP11 is a beta for now, and all will be solved around the release of the XP11 RTM.

It does not work for me, I've copied the

 

v:\X-Plane 10\Resources\plugins\rxpGTN folder

to

v:\X-Plane 11\Resources\plugins\

and in-game, In the default cessna, As soon as I click on GTN 750 XPlane11 crashes.

 

Did it happen to you ?

 

Thanks

I honestly couldn't remember because the version we use is already a new in-dev version from the one publicly available, and it could be it is working on our end for this reason alone, or it is the beta which behaves a little differently because of different settings. Nevertheless, another customer reported it is working for him as-is apart the glitch with the menus. Once the beta turns to release, this shouldn't be a problem anymore though.

Make sure that you start with a fresh new flight on the ground. And that no flightplan or AP command is active when you start the GTN.

Given the simulator is a beta version for now, it is expected to have issues there and there with the integration.

 

However, the plugin runs and the GTN display and interact ok, and by the time XP11 reaches release version, we shall be ready on our end with a new update, free to our customers!

I bought the RXPGTN-750-XPL but it will mot install into XPlane 11.  The installer is looking for the XPlane 10 folder, which does not exist, as I do not have Xplane 10 installed.

How do I proceed?

Thanks,

Heaven's sake, how did you get the 750 in the VC panel? Please share the ini settings. Thank you.

Nobody? Ok, it's Sunday so maybe everyone is out. Nevertheless, a bit disappointing that this smart tool, which is also rather expensive, is lacking some sort of documentation how to make the most out of it. A pop-up is just not the same as a VC integration  :nea:

That's kind, thank you. I have no experience with VC design in X-Plane. I only experimented with some mods in Prepar3D, mostly with the good stuff there which is made by talented people like Bert Pieke. I understand that the instruments are always sort of "baked" in and thus cannot be easily exchanged. 

 

I don't mind beta, otherwise I wouldn't try it all out. Hopefully, integration of the GTN continues rapidly for many other aircraft, guess it would also enhance sales of the gauge,

Hope to add GTN 650/750 to VC of Sikorsky S76, Beechcraft Baron 58 and Beechcraft King Air C90B as well as my own Bell 429.

Please refer to my other post here where I try to explain more about the panel integration differences between X-Plane and FlightSim. Mind you panel and aircraft modelling is not high a skill for me yet, so some of the information might be wrong:

Good news, appreciate your work. A single 750 only option would also be nice for people who don't own both units.

Here is this what you want, it is not just a ini file. https://www.dropbox.com/s/b2upfuyqwzr83dh/Cessna%20172SP.zip?dl=0

This add another cessna GTN to X-Plane 11 and is still a beta.

To add VC you need something like AC3D or Blender to change the object files and how to use planemaker.

Amazing thanks!

 

Is there a way to operate the unit in the VC?  I see clicking on the VC gauge pops up the 2d version.  Is that because of a limitation in XP?

 

Also I had to change the .ini file to get the GTN 750 set to NAV1.

 

Set these:

[GTN_750_1]

MasterDevice = true
RadiosPair = 1
LinkVor = true

Thanks Jon for this cool video! I like this scenery a lot!

 

Let me also take the opportunity to tell you that we are addressing the TCAD 'ghost' alerts. The work that has been done on the upcoming GNS 530 and GNS 430 TCAD has proven to be better for these, so once released, we will be able to port back the new code into the GTN units as well. 

 

As for crossfill, this is not yet implemented in the GTN units (it is implemented in the GNS units though). Again, as soon as we have released the GNS, we will see how the best we can enable this feature as well in the GTN (no promises of success there though).

 

As for the XPDR reverting back to VFR, I'm not sure. This could be XP11 bug, or a GTN (trainer) bug, or a PilotEdge bug. What's certain is that the GTN plugin does not interfere with this, it merely bridges XPlane XPDR with Trainer XPDR. Or maybe you've assigned a shortcut on your hardware throttle or yoke that is now assigned by default to XPDR VFR in XP11 whereas it was not in XP10?!
