GNS v2.4.2 Carenado Bonanza XP10 in XP11 mouse problem (XP11 beta - use XP11.20 instead)

Recommended Posts

I updated to v2.4.2 430 WAAS now the scrollwheel does not work on any of the instruments i.e. to change the altimeter setting, radio freq. etc. I am using the Carenado F33 bonanza for XP 10 in XP11. Before upgrading to this version the scroll wheel worked. When I disable RXP the scrollwhell works again. any help would be appreciated.

This most likely is the reason. Can you please cross check with a default aircraft instead?

Thanks for the reply. The problem causing the mouse wheel not to work when the RXP GNS 430 was enabled turned out to be the beta version of XP11. I reverted back to the 11.20 and everything works properly.

Same problem, but I'm using the C90B XP11 and I've updated my XP11 to version 11.21r2.

With RXP GNS 430 my clicklable spots are gone. Without RXP GNS everything works.

Made some tests and found that responsible for blocking the mouse scroll wheel are last three parameters in PANELS section of config. If all three parameters are set for false, mouse scroll works with RXP GNS active. Unfortunatelly then there is no way to pop up 2D window - for now I will use my key shortcut Ctrl+word not allowed+M which I setup in XP11 option for RXP GNS Window pop up. If any of these last three parameters are set up as true, then mouse scroll is blocked. Tested on both my "RXP GNS" planes L-410 and Tu-154M. RXP of course is latest version, checked today.

Just updated to xplane 11.21r2 and experienced the mouse wheel problem not allowing zoom feature with GTN750 installed. Remove GTN750 and mouse reverts to normal.Happens in C172, Corenado PC12 and probably all.But you can still turn knobs/levers by left click and slide up/dn. The mouse wheel still zooms within the GTN750.

Poor Jean-Luc, just when he thought everything was stable with xplane for a while...

Thanks for all your previous help. RXP GTN750 is certainly worth the effort.

Also, if you use GTN750 in popout mode without it being in the 3d panel, then the mouse zooms as normal.

Thank you for your astute research!

The culprit is identified but we are still working on this one.

Ufff what a relief to know, that this is not some local malfunction and you working on it. Thank you for message, take your time, for now it is enough to know that culprit is discovered and eventually will be "executed". 🙂

v2.4.2.1 update is now live and fixes the mouse in 11.21!

Thanks for 2.4.2.1. I just tried it with XP11.21. While the mouse wheel and mouse clicks now works with most everything in the carenado Bonanza F33 (XP11 version), most of the buttons and knobs on the GNS 430W don't work like they are supposed to unless i use the popup RXP GNS. WHat doesn't work on my end now is the CDI, OBS, Msg, FPL, Proc, D, Menu, RNG, CLR, ENT and Push CRSR. I can click these and I hear sounds but nothing happens on the GNS. I don't know maybe I'm doing something wrong. The RXP GNS 430 2.4.2.1 works perfectly in the Carenado Bonanza F33 XP10 version (in XP 11.21).

Hi, this sounds like you need to enable 'Use Simulator GPS Commands'

Thank you, again it works like charm. At least at my L-410 and Tu-154 I didn´t noticed any problems.

bingo! that did the trick. 'use simulator GPS commands' was enabled before. I just had to disable it then enable again and now all is well!
