Eaglesoft Citation II for FSX

Recommended Posts

I just purchased the Citation II and the pop up for the GPS and the Cabin pressure don't seem to work. I checked the Eaglesoft forum and there are no posts that address this issue. If you have this aircraft, do you have this problem? The instrument cluster pop up works fine, so I don't think it is a driver issue. I have a GTS 8800 512M card.Any help will be appreciated.Thanks

Bob,I haven't experienced any problems with the popups. They all work ok.I too would recommend that you get help from the Eaglesoft bunch on their forum. They are really helpful over there. Good support.Jim

They both work fine here on Vista. Did you go through the allowed modules to run on install and miss allowing some? Possibly reinstalling would do it.

Thanks for your help. I'm on Vista also. The work just fine in the 2D panels, just not in the VC. I can tell they are active because the mouse pointer changes, but they just don't pop up when clicked. I'll try the reinstall and see if that works.I'm just glad to hear they work and that it is just a problem I'm having.

I have the Citation II and use the VC exclusively. In order to get the popup panels I use the apprpriate keystrokes ie SHIFT 2 for GPS and SHIFT 7 for the pressure panel. I didn't even know that there were clickspots for them. So you could always try the keystroke method if all else fails.

I have the Citation II and window XP and have never been able to get the 2d GPS to pop-up by clicking the gps in the VC panel. Everything else seems to pop-up. I meant to ask about it on the Eaglesoft forum but never got around to it. After I installed ASX it messed with some of the shift "number" links in the CII, so I assumed that ASX was the culprit, but never pursued it.EDIT: I was mistaken. I just checked the Eaglesoft forum and I did ask the question back in May. This was their response:"The GPS installed is used in many other of our aircraft. The "GPS pop-up" mouse point is used in the others. I didn't provide one for this a/c"So being that the others who responded to this post are not having this problem, it must be our systems. Maybe a conflict with my ASX installation, maybe something else.Ted

When I replied that I wasn't having any problem, I didn't know that the op was referring to vc. When I'm in vc mode they won't pop up either which is why I use the shift keys.Jim

Thanks for all your help. Since the popup isn't programmed in the VC of this product, I used FSUIPC to program a button on my yoke to activate the popup.I was just puzzled because, if you ran the mouse over the GPS, the pointer changed to a hand which usually indicates a hot spot for a popup. Obviously, that isn't the case with the Citation.

Obviously, that isn't the case with the>Citation.The "internal popup command" used in the GPS530 calls for ident=225 which is the default number used by FS9/FSX for the GPS Popup, which makes it a universal "drop-in replacement" for the default G500 which comes with FS9/FSX.However, the existing simicon gauge used in the CII calls for ident=30. Since the updated gauges needed to work with existing v1.0 customers, I couldn't make changes to the internal ident # without adversely affecting existing installations. :)In any case, I'm glad you found a solution via FSUIPC, truly the "Swiss Army Knife" of all FS tools!

I'm sorry Bob, I thought you were clicking on the SIMICONS POPUP and that wasn't working but works ok here...my misunderstanding ;-)

Thanks for the explanation, Bill. I now understand why you were not able to program the pop-up. The FSUIPC solution works fine for me.Great plane, by the way. Haven't had much of a chance to fly it yet, but have really enjoyed the couple of flights I have taken.Nice to have a Biz Jet on par with your GA aircraft. The best out there in my opinion.Thanks.

Nope, sorry...we've elected to stay away from that feature in our aircraft as most users say it's fine for about three flights then becomes and annoyance:-)

Personally I like the reflections as they prevent "empty hole window" feeling. Each to their own of course.

We are 50-50 on that feature but most users prefer leaving it out. FYI there is a 10% Discount Coupon on all of our products thru November 30, 2008

You could always have it as an option with a config program to turn it on and off ;) Best of both worlds.

In other words, you'd have to physically copy/replace textures to make it work.I could be wrong. ;)

HelloI would really like to purchase your Twin Commanche but as i enjoy having the option of reflective glass i have passed on this one up to now.Why not offer the reflections as a config option, that way you please everyone and gain even more sales.Aircraft released without the reflections just look out of date to my eyes, same way that aircraft with 2D panels and no VC feel, once you have got used to good Virtual cockpits and TrackIR

While it is now possible to accomplish what you've asked in FSX we are not revisiting the FSX Twin Comanche or the CII. It's not a picnic to continue to revise products and we've spent nearly two years revisiting all of our products for FSX. We are currently focused on newer FSX aircraft and need to move forward on that front.:-)

Hello RonThats fair enough, but will you move forward and have reflective windows as an option with your new products.

Maddog, we consider each product on its own merits so no promises. Just letting you know that we will consider the options on future products.

No, it means that the FSX SR22 and SR22 Turbo provides toggle of the VC window tint, not reflections.
