  1. WoW Marwan! Nice work. Bill
  2. Here is the entry in my panel.cfg file just in case something is going on there - // First optional panel ------------------------------------ [Vcockpit03] //Background_color=36,36,36 /size_mm=1024 //visible=1 //pixel_size=1024,1024 // no_luminous=1 //texture=$GLJ25_02_G_C //gauge00=Lear_45_XML!PFD,248,119,536,800 Background_color=36,36,36 size_mm=1024 visible=1 pixel_size=1024,1024 no_luminous=1 texture=$GLJ25_02_G_C //gauge00=Lear_45_XML!PFD,248,119,536,800 gauge00=F1GTN!GTN750,248,119,536,525,UNIT1.VC gauge01=F1GTN!GTN650,248,644,536,275,UNIT1.VC Are the GTN 750 and 650 working in the panel? I assume that you ran the GTN config tool. Bill
  3. I had that happen once when I had left the sim paused for a long time. The pop out didn't work again until I restarted P3D. Has it never worked for you? Bill
  4. It should pop out. Click on the left side middle of the bezel. Bill
  5. You won't regret it. Bill
  6. Package deal and a good one. Bill
  7. As I recall, that is correct. Leaves a blank at the bottom of the panel. I went back and added the 650 as there didn't seem to be any performance hit. I had upgraded using the GTN 650/750 Complete package. Bill
  8. This Lear is a real kick. One of my favorite aircraft. "And... the 'Eight' track only plays four tracks! " It would be nice if there were more tracks but you can install the four tracks of your choice and change them from time to time. For my setup I would say that the Lear is between the NGX and the Q400 FPS wise. From the Xtreme Prototypes Flight Manual - Section 4 Page 9 To play your own music, simply convert four of your favorite music pieces to .wav files and renamed them: SND31.wav SND32.wav SND33.wav SND34.wav Copy these files to the “extra” folder that is contained in the “sound” folder of the addon’s main folder. The “extra” folder contains the cockpit sound effects, including the music from the 8-track tape player. Bill
  9. Shortly after takeoff and I mean 'Shortly', I select airspeed hold to keep things from getting out of hand. Airspeed hold seems to control the throttles in this case. From the manual - 1. SPD (Airspeed Hold Mode) Switch and Light This switch engages the autopilot speed (SPD) hold mode. The SPD hold mode maintains the aircraft at the indicated airspeed that existed when the switch was depressed. The SPD Hold Switch must be used at altitudes below 29,000 feet. Like on the real aircraft, above 29,000 feet, the autopilot will automatically switch to the MACH hold mode. In the sim, speed hold is accomplished by the autothrottle. Edit: I haven't found any reference to an autothrottle function in the real aircraft. Bill
  10. That looks to be a work around and while less then ideal, I will give it a try. Thanks. Bill
  11. Hi Dave, I'm using Ultimate Traffic Live now and when I exit the runway and request "taxi to gate", I select the gate given by P2ATC for GSX. I get a message that the gate is occupied. I find that when using Ultimate Traffic Live most of the gates are occupied which is undoubtedly part of the problem. P2ATC doesn't seem to see these gates as occupied. Any work around for this? Again, not a big problem. I find an empty gate and give that to GSX. It is nice to have the P2ATC taxi guide though and I can request a 'follow me' vehicle but I would rather not. Great program and the best ATC add-on out there. Bill
  12. You have to turn of Dynamic Lighting when flying this aircraft. I think that it has something to do with the way this aircraft is implemented and P3D'd lighting. Bill
  13. As per gregmorin - GTN 650/750 Here the panel cfg from V2.0 // First optional panel ------------------------------------ [Vcockpit03] Background_color=36,36,36 size_mm=1024 visible=1 pixel_size=1024,1024 no_luminous=1 texture=$GLJ25_02_G_C //gauge00=Lear_45_XML!PFD,248,119,536,800 gauge00=F1GTN!GTN750,248,119,536,525,UNIT1.VC gauge01=F1GTN!GTN650,248,644,536,275,UNIT1.VC And my initial problem which was a non-problem. From lenny777 - >Posted August 24 · Report post On 8/24/2017 at 10:08 PM, Bill Griffith said: I did the Flight1 GTN-650/750 mod and I can bring up the 650/750 using the 'GTN Stack' menu and they function but they aren't in the panel. I missed a step somewhere. Any advise appreciated. Bill Did you press the ' select optional panel' button just below the APPR button on the front panel? It's just on top where the avionics should be.< I hadn't and when I did they worked just fine. Bill
  14. I'm glad that you resolved the problem. Bill
  15. There are some sound issues addressed in the installation manual. One of those might be your problem. Great aircraft by the way. Bill
