    NGX and IvAp => 2 annoying issues

    Hello Fabrizio, thanks. As for traffic, I always had the settings to SHOW ALL, both on 777 and 737. Still intrigued why it works with IVAO with 777 and not with 737. As for weather... another intriguing situation. I have experimented a little the past couple of days with FSUIPC and to no avail. I am thinking about testing ASN, but I am afraid of the frame rate drop... Thanks for your input!

    NGX and IvAp => 2 annoying issues

    That is EXACTLY when this is happening: ON THE GROUND at the airport corresponding to the METAR. Other examples were so just for Steffan to understand. No ofense on saying this is a bug and likewise I will not be offended if the mistake is mine. The goal is not to set blame, but solve my problem. Thanks. See, maybe I should had posted 2 threads... All works FINE with 777 on TCAS. It does not work with 737NX. How can the problem be with iVaP or FSX ? Thanks.

    NGX and IvAp => 2 annoying issues

    Thanks Kyle. As for the altimeter, if I understand correctly your post, if I am indeed sitting on the ground connected to IVAO then if I press B then the QNH SHOULD be same as in the METAR, right? If the answer is YES to the above question, then that is what I am talking about. On 737 and 777 they are NOT. Example: I am just flying now from OITT to LTAC. METAR for OITT said QNH was Q1010 but to be on the correct field elevation, thus pressing B, the QNH went to Q1003. Imagine a CatII approach. QNH is extremely important... of course around me while on approach QNH should be variable, fully understood and known. But ON THE GROUND it should be as per METAR. What is annoying is that QNH is JUST as METAR on other aircraft when online. As for the settings... it will be highly appreciated if you could direct me exactly to where I must check the settings. Thanks.

    I am glad I could make myself understood I very rarely post, as I usually am able to solve the problems on my own... but not this time... No, I do not have any other weather engine. Not even installed. That is why I believe it indeed is an issue. Thanks.

    NGX and IvAp => 2 annoying issues

    You misunderstood me I will try to be more clear: Suppose I am online and flying above the TA. I will see on the PFD lower right corner, in green, STD. I am flying on 1013.2 hPa. Now I am approaching my destination. I check the ATIS and the altimeter setting is, for instance, 1019. I go to the smaller knob on the BARO MCP part and set 1019. On the lower right corner of the PFD, now, will appear in green STD and BELOW, in white, 1019 HPA. Passing through TL, I only press the MCP STD button and it adjusts to Q1019, as I would do turning a knob on manual altimeters. Now... since my online weather states that QNH at my destination is Q1019, I am adjusted. If I press B, nothing SHOULD happen, as what I did was a manual setting, as in real life. Problem is, on the new version of both B737 and B777 for FSX:SE, this setting ends up being DIFFERENT from the weather found at the destination. And as this does not happen with default aircraft, it sure looks like some sort of problem with NGX and weather engine. On IVAO forum there are a couple of posts reporting this problem. But I believe no one was able to pinpoint it to NGX as I did. Older versions worked just fine as I described above. Is it a bit clearer now ? Thanks.

    I can only thank you Steffan, but I have been in the SIM world for almost 20 years and with IVAO for almost 14. I have been with earlier version of PMDG for a long time... Things should work as I wrote above, as they always did. As this is an official support forum, I will wait for an official reply. Thanks again!

    Thanks Steffan, I am considering ONLINE weather. When online, there should be no need to press B. My issue is NOT offline. It is online with IVAO and ONLY with PMDG. Thanks.

    NGX and IvAp => 2 annoying issues

    Thanks Steffan. OK, suppose I use B and calibrate the altimeter. If I do not disconnect again, I should expect the weather to be "calibrated". So, during my Approach Checklist I set the local altimeter... well, after landing (suppose it was visual!), the altimeter will STILL be incorrect. Any ideas? Thanks again.
  9. Hello Everyone, First of all, I apologise if this topic has already been discussed. I looked for the search engine in the forum, but could not find (sorry if it is in my face!). I am experiencing 2 annoying bugs (?) with 737NGX and IvAp. One of them also happens with 777X. I use FSX:SE and before posting I updated both FSX:SE and 737NGX and 777X through a clean installation. Problems remain. 1) ON 737NGX AND 777X, when I connect to IvAp, I can NEVER get the IvAp METAR QNH to match the aircrafts when I am on the ground. For example, I am now online at EBBR, METAR QNH is 1020 and in the aircraft the QNH is 1010. Testes I made: I loaded default aircrafts and the QNH on them are CORRECT (1020) as per METAR. Any insights? 2) This one happens ONLY on 737NGX (in other words, all works perfectly with 777X!!!) When online on IvAp, the embeded TCAS service with IVAN is NOT showing on the screen on 737NGX. Of course I thought it would be a FSUIPC problem BUT all works fine with 777X! So, if settings are the same how can it work for 777 and NOT for 737?? Help appreciated. Thanks! Rafael

    One problem and one suggestion

    You are 100% correct. Just found out that is the problem. I must wait for FO to start APU. Should be nice to have a voice announcement when APU was on. In regards to Taxi light, seems like half of the problem might be already solved. I experimented a bit, and seems like if I turn the taxi light on before taxi (I added manually to the checklist), the FO turns it OFF during the Runway Entry Procedure. I am not 100% sure yet, but seems like this is happening... Anyone can reproduce? Regards!

    It may sound, but nope, you are wrong. People here tendto answer all questions about problems with read the manual and see the tutorial. Well, afret dozens of videos from Angle of Attack, which I subscribe and watched, I can bet I know how to folloe ALL procedures, thanks. All I want is suggestions of what the problem may be, not refferals to manuals and/or tutorials, thanks.

    Actually, I always start Cold&Dark for the first flight, as I use FS2Crew. I notice that sometines qhen I ser the IRS switches to NAV for some reason I do not get the Enter IRS position on the CDU. That is what I meant...

    One problem and one suggestion

    Hum... About the IRS problem, I am quite sure it has to do with the APU, but not 100% sure. About the taxi lights, the FO does not turn them on either. Is there a chance I can change that and include it in the before taxi checklist, for example? Cheers.

    And what if the set IRS never appears on the POS INIT page ? This happens tome quite often... any ideas?
  15. Hello Again! As I said in the other topic, wonderful piece of work. I am having one strange problem, and it maybe my fault, but I am not sure. I always start my flights Cold&Dark. So as soon as I hit PF and all starts to come alive, the very first thing I do is set the IRS selector to NAV (both). Well, here is the problem: some times, for a reason I do not yet understand, I do get the set IRS line in the FMC and, of course, not having it does not allow me to fly. The strange part is that I always do things exactly the same way, that is, as soon as I start my flow I set the selectors ro NAV. Most of the times, it works (the message to set IRS appears on FMC and as soon as I insert it, the EFIS come alive). But some times, no luck. When I do not get the message, FO keeps on doing his flow and I fall behind trying to get IRS into FMC, which for ignorance I do not know how to do if not by the message. What am I doing wrong and how to solve it? Now, a suggestion. My VA fas in its FOQA (FSAcars) the need to turn the taxi lights on before starting taxi, and off at holding point. Should that be included into the lights flow the FO does? Is there a way to include it? Thanks!
