Posted (edited)

Hi, I'm pleased to announce v2.5.7 is now released!

It is available either via Settings Panel | Check Updates... or directly from our web site.

v2.5.7:

  • New: Aircraft Flight Manual Supplement (AFMS) related settings.
  • New: Mark On Target discrete command (AFMS).
  • Enhanced: Transponder VFR code presets (US/EUR or user VFRcode).
  • Enhanced: Additional power sources setting (electric buses and generators/alternators).
  • Enhanced: Further stability and performance enhancements.
  • Enhanced: User's Manual corrections.
  • Fixed: GTN Settings Panel could CTD on some computers.
  • Fixed: GTN add-on menu could CTD on some computers.

AFMS settings:

the GTN supports specific enablement features configured during installation in a real aircraft. These are regrouped in the configuration panel under Aircraft Flight Manual Supplement (AFMS) and allow changing between VNAV and VCALC modes (GTN Trainer v6.50+), selecting V-Flag Declutter, disabling CDI key etc...

v2.5.6:

  • Enhanced: Further support for the latest GTN Trainer v6.50.
  • Setting: Added adjustable screen and integral lighting with custom SimVars for third party aircraft.

This update enables two simvars: "rxp.panel.rheostat_screen" and "rxp.panel.rheostat_integral". These permit third party aircraft vendors binding their custom aircraft rheostat implementation to our GTN gauge, in order to adjust the screen and the integral lighting intensity independently.

v2.5.5:

  • Settings: Choose new Garmin / Jeppesen Aviation Databases for Rotorcraft (trainer v6.50).
  • Enhanced: Further support for the latest GTN Trainer v6.50.
  • Enhanced: Rendering at small screen size, further refinements from previous version.
  • Enhanced: User's Manual updated with correct references to new trainer v6.50 paths.
  • Enhanced: Validated Compatibility with GTN trainers v6.21, v6.41.
  • Enhanced: Further stability and performance enhancements.

v2.5.4:

  • New: Added support for the latest GTN Trainer v6.50.
  • New: With Garmin / Jeppesen Aviation, Obstacles and Safetaxi® Databases cycle 1803.
  • Enhanced: Rendering at small screen size.
  • Enhanced: Further stability and performance enhancements.

NB: this release focus is primarily GTN Trainer v6.50 compatibility.
It may break compatibility with previous trainers (6.41 and 6.21) and we'll make sure to review all code changes for these in a future update.

v2.5.3

  • New: Support for Prepar3D V4.3 autopilot.
  • Enhanced: Internal corrections to prevent the boot screens from freezing when TCAD is active.
  • Enhanced: Gauge graphics and renderer corrections.
  • Enhanced: Further stability and performance enhancements.

v2.5.2

  • Fixed: Keyboard shortcuts could fail registering some commands properly.
  • Enhanced: ModelDef.xml updated with GUIDs, groups and corrections.
  • Enhanced: GUI Panel Assistant auto-detected gauges and panel.cfg backup handling.
  • Enhanced: Gauge Tooltips corrections.
  • Enhanced: User's Manual corrections and additional information.
  • Enhanced: Further stability and performance enhancements.

We've further improved the auto-detection algorithm in the panel assistant in order to try refining the potential candidates found in the panel.cfg file. In addition, we've fixed a number of issues introduced in the previous version (2.5.1).

The installed canonical ModelDef.xml also benefits from additional comments, GUIDs and groups in order to help 3rd party aircraft vendors getting up to speed with the integration of the Reality XP GTN into their aircraft.

v2.5.1

  • New: Added support to fail RAIM Check via L:vars.
  • New: Added discrete inputs L:vars.
  • New: Added canonical ModelDef.xml file for third party aircraft vendors.
  • Enhanced: Interactions with the included Mid Continent MD41-1484 WAAS Annunciator gauge.
  • Enhanced: Interactions with the included Mid Continent MD41-1028 TAWS Control Unit gauge.
  • Enhanced: TAWS auto-detected limits are properly saved in the ini file.
  • Enhanced: Smarter GUI Panel Assistant auto-detection and filters.
  • Enhanced: User's Manual corrections and additional information.
  • Enhanced: Further stability and performance enhancements.
  • BREAKING CHANGE: CW and CCW default GPS commands were reversed from the User's Manual (Use Simulator GPS Commands).

Breaking Change:

The GTN gauge was inversely intercepting the simulator GPS commands compared to the User's Manual. This new version fixes this and the documented commands are working as they should now. However, this is a breaking change which affects existing third party aircraft with pre-configured Reality XP GTN virtual cockpits, as well as the 'bridge' XML gauge which permits using a virtual cockpit pre-configured for 'another' GTN with the Reality XP GTN instead.

Discrete inputs L:Vars

The GTN FltSim now offers the same capabilities as the X-Plane version with these new L:vars. They permit external device control like in the real units. The GTN now accepts 3 inputs: remote CDI, remote OBS and remote TAWS inhibit. This function is notably show cased in action with the included Mid Continent MD41-1028 TAWS Control Unit gauge!

ModelDef.xml

This version installs a canonical modeldef.xml file so that third party vendors can get started quickly integrating the GTN in their virtual cockpits. (see User's Manual for more details).

v2.5

  • New: LinkObs connects GPS to OBS source, either HSI (with LinkHsi) or VOR (AutoNavSource).
  • New: Autopilot coupling and tracking compatible with host simulator simulation rate (up to 128x).
  • Fixed: missing LPV procedures bug introduced in previous version.

v2.4.16

  • New: Mid Continent MD41-1484 WAAS Annunciator gauge.*
  • New: Mid Continent MD41-1028 TAWS Control Unit gauge.*
  • New: Autopilot compatible with all previous P3D3 versions.
  • Enhanced: User's Manual renamed to: "Reality XP GTN User's Manual (FltSim).pdf".
  • Enhanced: User's Manual corrections and additional information.
  • Enhanced: Installer cleans up older manual and shortcuts left from previous installations.
  • Enhanced: Further stability and performance enhancements.

* Installs P3D4/3 add-on.xml file automatically, more info: "C:\Program Files (x86)\Reality XP\Gauges"

 

Mid Continent Gauges:

This might be a good time for updating the panels in the Official Panel Configuration Thread with these 2 new gauges!

 

LinkObs:

With the previous versions, the option used to only connect the HSI OBS to the GPS. 

New in v2.5, when using the LinkObs option, the OBS source is either the HSI OBS when the GPS device is connected to the HSI (LinkHsi option), or the VOR1/2  OBS when the GPS device is connected to the VOR (in this case VOR1 or VOR2 depends on the AutoNavSource setting). 

NB: FltSim VOR1 OBS and HSI OBS are same source, same simvar, unlike X-Plane.
