    shut down engine procedure

    Doesn't work. The starter switch cannot be held in position. Clcking and holding just activates it briefly before it flips back to neutral position. I cut the engines by closing the main fuel cocks. Boris
  2. Hi, Is it possible to fly a DIRECT TO WPT from PPOS with the Carenado Proline in the CJ2? What I observe when I follow the manual is this (on the DIR page): When presesing the LSK next to the WPT I want to go to, the plane wants to fly shortest way to the leg between the target WPT and the previous WPT, which leads to odd S turns instead of flying directly to the selected WPT. When typing the WPT into the scratchpad and press th eupper left LSK twice (as described in the manual) it erases my FPLN an leaves me with a blank FMC. Is that Carenado simplified Proline functionality or am I doing something wrong? Boris

    PMDG panel states with jumpstart

    Hi Boris, no, Simstarter cannot do this. This is because PMDG aircraft save the panel state in the respective PMDG folder, and as long as this is not loaded with the jumpstart flight, the aircraft will load with the default state, which is with engines running. Simstarter does not copy these files when making the jumpstart flight. If it did, what you asked for should be possible. What you can do - I must mention this - is that you can edit the aircraft's ini file to default load with a specific panel state, for example cold&dark. Regarding the default flight, it is true that it can lead to problems when this flight is overwritten and a complex aircraft is loaded initially, so I would not recommend to do this. A cool feature would be, though, what you suggested in your EDIT 1. This will work for aircraft which do not maintain their own status files, even rather complex ones like the Flight1 King Air. It would be even better, when the user could specify which other files should be copied with the jumpstart flight generation with the same name as that flight, because then this feature would work also for example for PMDG aircraft. Maybe the developer will implement this feature in a later version :smile: Boris
  4. Hi, can Simstarter NG do this with jumpstart: Select a previously saved flight with a PMDG aircraft, which was saved with engines off and aircraft set up for turnaround Select a different location and time Start FSX / P3Dv3.4 HF2 with the formerly saved panel state? I tried the freeware version 2.7.4 and it cannot do this - it loads the flight, but always with the engines running. It does work, though, when I load that previously saved flight from the start screen - then the engines remain off. Please don't explain that I can load a panel state from inside the PMDG aircraft - I know that. I explicitly want to know if I can use Simstarter for the above. And in that context: PMDG recommends to not touch the default flight in FSX/P3D (not start the flight, just have it loaded in the background). I see that Simstarter appears to overwrite the default situation with the "jumpstart" situation. Can this have an effect on the aircraft initialization and functioning? EDIT 1: If this is the case: Can I use Simstarter to create a "jumpstart" situation without starting the sim with it, i.e. start the sim normally with the default situation and then load the "jumpstart" flight? This would also help. EDIT 2: Sorry, it doesn't help. The "jumpstart" flight always starts with the engines on, no matter how it is loaded. Thanks and Regards Boris

    Flight 1 KingAir B200 (Module Version 1.0)

    All I need is a working gear horn silence switch function - mcp5500's code does not work for me. Does yours work (if you tried it at all)? Boris

    Help with Flight1 B200

    Hi, I am using LINDA with my Thrustmaster T16000M Flight Pack for some frequently used functions in my addon aircraft. Although I am far from understanding what's going on in the scripts, I get along quite well with the scripts I have downloaded here - except the F1 B200. I am not able to assign a button to the gear horn silencer. Actually, with the script available here I can get NO button to work. Maybe it's because it is written for use with a shift function, which I don't use, I'd be glad if somebody could help out here. The function I need is obviously "B200GearHornSilenceSwitch", in the script I can find this: ipc.writeLvar("B200GearHornSilenceSwitch, 0") ipc.control (65823, 1) -- knob sound ipc.control (65823, 0) -- knob sound In the console, I can see the function when pressing the button in the virtual cockpit, which silences the horn. When I trigger the same function in the tracer, I also see it in the console, it even depresses and releases the button in the VC, but it does not silence the horn. Boris
  8. Hi all, I know, vasFMC is not supported anymore, but perhaps somebody knows my problem and has a workaround for me :smile: I am running vasFMC standalone with Thomas Ruth's A340 (same happens with the default A321, however) with the following settings: hardware throttle set to AXES_THROTTLE_SET via FSUIPC 4.95 A/THR mode in vasFMC to VASFMC Airbus A/THR in vasFMC to ON When loading the aircraft, the engines are running with the start switches OFF (for whatever reason). Now the throttle works fine: The lever commands N1, the FADEC does the rest. IDLE, LVR mode, all detents. Note the cyan arc following the N1 bug. As soon as one start switch is set to ON (and this necessarily happens, because I must stop the engines to program the FMGC) this does not work anymore. I still see the N1 bug in the ECAM, but simultaneously there is a constant IDLE input which keeps the engines in idle and prevents taxiing. The detents still work. The cyan arc is gone now, and IDLE is blinking. Any help is appreciated. Regards Boris

    YBCG Gold Coast Airport Released

    Hi, yes, there is one. This and a txt-file with a list of what appears to be a unique ID number for every static aircraft. Disabling that file would be a less optimal solution; all static aircraft would be gone in this case... Boris

    YBCG Gold Coast Airport Released

    Reviving again :smile: I also like this airport very much and want to say thank you to Max for this wonderful scenery. I have an issue, though; maybe someone can help me: A lot of the static GA aircraft have no textures, which disturbs the beautiful picture. How can I either add the missing textures or remove the untextured aircraft? Boris

    Unhandled exception

    Dear Peter, I am just configuring version 2.7 for FSX, and when I click on the "edit profile" button I get an unhandled exception error. After ignoring this message and clicking the second time, the dialog opens and seems to work fine. If this has no other effect than that I must cklick twice when editing a profile, I'm fine. I just want to make sure that nothing goes wrong with the FSX setup here. This is the text of the error message (I only have it in German...): "Der Wert 0 ist für Value ungültig.

  13. Hi, I downloaded DeskPilot and tried to set up a session with the NGX, but I keep getting an "aircraft initialization failure" on the client PC. Both PC are in the same LAN and can establish normal multiplayer with NGX and shared cockpit with other aircraft. On both PC FSX Acceleration is installed. The error happens regardless wether DP is running or not. Both aircraft are SP1c. DataBroadcast entry is present in both ini files, cockpit is cold&dark. Any advice? Regards Boris

    Cold and dark - still activity

    Hi Ed, and thanks for your patience. It is not the RFP, it is my sim. I have that with every aircraft - I just didn't notice before because the minimum volume is much lower in the other sound.cfg files.The sound is definitely the ground roll sound; filemon shows the file permanently being read as long as the aircraft is on the ground. When I REM it out in the sound.cfg, it's gone.Now what could that be?Boris

    Cold and dark - still activity

    Hi Ed,I did as you advised, but no success. A reinstall didn't help either. But I found the sound I hear: it's the ground roll sound and it seems to be driven by the sound.cfg - when I enter a different sound I hear that one.The entry for GROUND_ROLL in the sound.cfg however is almost the same as in my other aircraft. Except for the minimum_volume, which is 9000 in the RFP and 6000 in all other aircraft. If I turn the volume down, I still hear the sound, just lower.What's wrong with my RFP? Or my flightsim?Boris
