    F1 to RXP GTN Gauge ready

    This one is still working.

    F1 to RXP GTN Gauge ready

    I know, it's just a "quickfix" but according to Ryan all should work. And It is only the middle mouse button not working for me, even when using Ryan's own files directly in my own sim. I will of course also ask the producer to implement native functionality 🙂

    GTN v2.5.3 Fuel Flow question

    I'll have to check back on this in a couple of weeks. At work out at sea now. But yes, certain of AVGAS and version 2.5.3. If anyone else sees this feel free to chime in 🙂

    F1 to RXP GTN Gauge ready

    I've been trying this out in A2A C182, with mixed results. Using both the GTN's I get most of it to work, except the "push middle button" for the push buttons on volume, and frequency knobs. Scrolling the mouse wheel work for changing frequency and volume. Anyone else had this issue with the gauge? I have added the gauge to only the first VC section in panel.cfg. Using 8800 as setting. Another thing I found is that left and right clicking or scrolling to change frequencies and volume was that the logic is inverted as regard to how the 3d buttons work/are animated. This was easily fixed by flipping the code in the xml file, for button 2 and 3 as well as page Inc/Dec and group inc/Dec. (and no, middle mouse was not working before I did this code swap 😛 ) I have tried the latest gauge file from Ryan, as well as his personal xml and .ini file with no luck.

    Transponder Mode

    Bumping this thread: For us who use vPilot this is from the vPilot documentation, http://vpilot.metacraft.com/Documentation2.aspx#transponder: And from the older squawkbox documentation for FSUIPC offsets, http://www.squawkbox.ca/doc/sdk/fsuipc.php: And for my A2A aircraft which don't have squawkbox integration built in I use a LUA script found on the web: function sqmode(varname, value) avi_swtch = ipc.readLvar("AvionicsElecPower") if avi_swtch==1 and (value==4 or value==3) then --squawk mode charlie ipc.writeSB(0x7B91, 0) else --squawk mode stand by ipc.writeSB(0x7B91, 1) end --else --squawk mode stand by --ipc.writeSB(0x7B91, 1) --end end function sqident(varname, value) if value==1 then --squawk ident ipc.writeSB(0x7b93, 1) end end event.Lvar("L:xpdr_onoff_knob_pos", 500,"sqmode") event.Lvar("L:xpdr_ident_button", 500,"sqident") The question for RXP is then: Are there any variables in the GTN that can be used to implement this functionality, or update the LUA script? Otherwise, would it be very problematic to implement the variables, or make the software write the SB values? As you can see from the SB documentation there is also an offset for flashing the Ident light to simulate radars interrogating the transponder, (not sure if this is implemented in vPilot, but I see in the GTN manual that there is a rxp varable for this already 🙂 )
  6. Hello, I'm still getting the fuel flow error mentioned in this thread. Using A2A C182, AVGAS and Shadin selected. 😕 (Should maybe made an separate thread, but previously this was mentioned in release thread.)
  7. I suggest you take this question over to the X-Plane part of the RXP forums 😊 Think you'll find more X-Plane users there 😉

    RNAV approaches

    Not sure I understood your post. Is this a response to mine? If so I'm not following you, is Sat/Ground based augmentation an equivalent to what I'm asking? Or is it a additional request to PMDG? :)

    RNAV approaches

    A question that have been popping up now and then, and one I am eager to know is; "will pmdg update the fmc's to be able to do RF legs (radius to fix), and otherwise up to Airinc 424 standards?". Navigraph has already stated that they can deliver the data, if addon publishers require it :) @rsrandazzo@scandinavian13

    Plans for a NGX "Pro" version?

    Don't we already have random failures with the NGX? You can set any number of random failures per x hours. Isn't that what you are asking here?

    NGX Reboot is under development!

    Yes I'm well aware of this setup. But as soon as I start the next leg, the FO starts the APU during his preflight flows. Even though the GPU is already connected. We don't start it before approx 5min before pushback, so therefor I need to turn it off again, and then ask FO to start it at 5min, or do it myself. The fuel calculations are usually done with 10-15min APU time an early start of APU eats in to my precious and "expensive" fuel

    NGX Reboot is under development!

    Will we have the option to utilize only the external power during preflights and thruflights? Thereby not selecting APU/EX but only External. As i mentioned previously this is the way I'm used to things beeing done here in Norway at least. Due to short turnarounds (30min) and Restrictions in APU usage at the ramp. A little annoying having to turn the APU off everytime the FO turns it on during his flows.

    Info please on PMDG 777 in P3Dv2 - Re: Memory

    Also getting 4096 textures in FSX you need to add this manually to FSX.CFG (don't know if this is the same for SE edition), anyways, in FSX if you change an setting inside FSX settings the textures will revert to the default maximum 1024, this might be the same for SE edition.
