    Hi Frank, I don't have dedicated hardware for the mixture levers. That's probably the reason why I've never experienced something like that. But I could imagine that FSX/P3D gets irritated for a split of a second when there is a large discrepancy between the position of the mixture levers in the cockpit and the hardware levers.

    Hi Frank, you can activate and deactivate the Automixture gauge as often as you like

    Hi Les, the Automixture gauge gets disabled anytime the mixture is adjusted manually. So I guess your throttle quadrant constantly changes the mixture due to signal noise. My idea would be to modify the Automixture gauge in a way that it ignores the manual mixture adjustments and that one can disable it with a key. In order to do so open the Automixture.xml and go to this section at the bottom of the file: <!-- Event traps to auto-disable mixture control --> <On Event="MIXTURE_RICH"> 0 (>L:Automixture Mode, number) </On> <On Event="MIXTURE_INCR"> 0 (>L:Automixture Mode, number) </On> <On Event="MIXTURE_INCR_SMALL"> 0 (>L:Automixture Mode, number) </On> <On Event="MIXTURE_DECR"> 0 (>L:Automixture Mode, number) </On> <On Event="MIXTURE_LEAN"> 0 (>L:Automixture Mode, number) </On> Now replace the above section with the following one: <!-- Event traps to auto-disable mixture control --> <!-- Ctrl + Shift + F9 = disable gauge --> <On Key="888"> 0 (>L:Automixture Mode, number) </On> The only way to disable the gauge now is via "Ctrl + Shift + F9". I hope this will solve your hardware conflict

    Luckily, Björn made it very easy to adjust the desired fuel-air-ratios. My idea was to use best power for cruise and a richer mixture setting for climb. Based on these informations I made the following changes to the xml file: <Gauge Name="Automixture" Version="1.1"> <!-- Automixture gauge by BK. For FS9 or FSX --> <Update> <!-- Fuel/Air Ratio for climb --> (L:Automixture Mode, number) 3 == if{ 0.09 (>G:Var1) } <!-- Fuel/Air Ratio for cruise --> (L:Automixture Mode, number) 2 == if{ 0.083 (>G:Var1) I simply keep the cruise mixture setting until the final approach.At this point I set the mixture to full rich for landing.

    Hi Frank, in an aircraft with a turbocharged engine you only change the mixture twice: for climb and cruise. As we already know, FSX and P3D do not simulate this correctly and one has to adjust the mixture constantly. My solution for this is the use of this Automixture gauge. With this gauge I only need to change the mixture for climb and cruise, like in the real aircraft. And it works really well.

    Version 1.1

    I'm very surprised that they haven't fixed the missing gauge reflections. I mean this is one of the features that is highlighted on the product page, yet it is still broken in version 1.1. And I even told them where the error is and how to solve it. The throttle lever animation is also still flawed.

    I was able to fix this issue. If you also miss the instrument reflections, go to your '...\Alabeo C421_Golden_Eagle\Texture.Common' folder and create a copy of the 'win_texts.dds' file. Rename it to 'wintext.dds'. That's it

    Indeed a great aircraft! But it seems that the instrument reflections are missing, which looks a bit odd.

    Clicking noise in cockpit.

    Yes, of course!
  11. Hello Steve, thank you very much for this excellent repaint! And I'm really looking forward to the other liveries as well
  12. Hi, Aerosoft has released their long-awaited Douglas DC-8 for P3Dv4: https://www.aerosoft.com/en/flight-simulation/prepar3d/aircraft/2381/douglas-dc-8

    Clicking noise in cockpit.

    Hi, I had the exact same issue. It seems to be caused by the gear warning system. Luckily I was able to fix the problem. I've send you a PM with the modified file that will hopefully fix the issue for you as well.

    That's true And it is great that you've taken all these small details into account. But how realistic is it that all four gauges have the exact same error margin? I mean if one gauge would show a little bit more and another one a little bit less it would be way more natural and believable. To be honest, the way it is at the moment it feels more like a bug than a feature.

    Hello Alexander, thank you very much for the explanation! I would still prefer a more precise MAP gauge but now I can at least understand the reasons behind it. Does that mean that the false indication when the engines are off is also deliberately intended?
