    xpuipc website down plz help

    Got it! Thanks
  2. I just purchased X-ATC-Chatter and read in the user guide where it is suggested to merge the US and Canada files. My question is do you merge the individual WAV files from the corresponding folders?

    xpuipc website down plz help

    I used MadDog's link for XPUIPC and I found version 2.0.0.3 of XPWideClient here: https://tfdidesign.com/downloads/8/Product-Support-Files I'm currently evaluating P2ATC for purchase and it seems to be working okay so far. The instructions say to download both XPUIPC and XPWideClient but unlike XPUIPC there are no specific instructions for XPWideClient. So I just followed the same instructions and put XPWideClient into the plugin folder. Seems a strange thing to do because the file in the folder is an exe but like I said P2ATC seems to be working okay so far. Was this the right thing to do for XPWideClient and if so is the 2.0.0.3 version okay? Daskal

    GTN750 not picking up GS on RNAV/LPV approach

    Hans, Forgot to add that my 750 shuts off using the master avionics switch. I did notice that the plane's battery switch can be off and the 750 can still be turned on with the master avionics switch. I'm not sure if that's the case IRL though? Daskal

    GTN750 not picking up GS on RNAV/LPV approach

    Hans, I also have the Carenado F33A working with the 750. I'm very much a novice at this but after reading your posts I figured it was time for me to try an approach with GS. My FP consisted of departure from KLGA ( I'm from Queens NY 🙂 ) RW22 with the first waypoint as KEWR and the next waypoint as KLGA with the approach RNAV 04 Y gps LPV and a vector of PONAE. After takeoff I climbed to 3000ft with A/P on NAV. After my plane made its turn to PONAE at KEWR I switched the A/P to APR and set in 1700ft with a descent rate of -900 ft/min prepping for arrival at PONAE. At PONAE I engaged the VS and armed the ALT. I kept the airspeed around 140kts. I reached 1700ft prior to the next waypoint which is DNNIS. Within a second of reaching DNNIS the plane captured the GS and brought me down perfectly onto RW 04. Pretty neat function. So neat in fact that I turned the plane around at the end of 04, took off on 22 and successfully repeated it again. I have the latest version of the plane itself, the GTN is 2.5.3.0 and the latest released STEAM version 11.25 I believe. Other plugins are XPUIPC for ATC and FlyWithLua for some scenery effects. I haven't yet bought the REP but may do so in the future. My current settings for the panel display are posted here: [GTN_750_1] ; comma separated list of read only settings. locked = CopilotSide, RadiosPair, AutoNavSource, UseAudioPanel, FuelType ; comma separated list of render targets. drawto = WINDOW, PANEL3D ; is the master device if true.

    SID/GTN750/P2ATC question

    Thanks for that info Dave. I just purchased the latest Careado BC Bonanza F33A for Xp11 that was 750/650 "ready" and of course purchased the 750 as well. I'm liking both the plane and the navaid. Now I plan to d/l the trial version of P2ATC and if all goes well you will have another customer.

    SID/GTN750/P2ATC question

    This is the link to a tutorial video that shows how you can export your Skyvector flight plans into Reality XP's GTN 750/650 with no error. The original message can be found in the 7 replies above but it could be missed if one one didn't dig into those replies. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GdrFphSDiQg
  8. Here's my single GTN750 integration into the Carenado Beechcraft F33A V1.1 (GTN Ready) for XPlane 11 only: [GTN_750_1.PANELS] ; display window if true. visible = true ; show screen only gauge if true. nobezel = true ; display type: WINDOW,PANEL2D,PANEL3D,PANELS frame.type = PANELS ; display position and dimension (left,top,width,height) frame.rect = 1216,2047,828,1010 ; screen only border size (pixels). border.size = 0 ; screen only border color (#RGB or #RGBA). border.rgba = #000000 ; enable mouse clickspots if true, disable if false (use SHIFT to override) usemouse = true ; left mouse button on the screen toggles popup window if true (requires SHIFT+left mouse button). popleft = false ; right mouse button on the screen toggles popup window if true (requires XP11.1). popright = true
  9. Not one to give up easily I kept playing with the numbers and finally found a winning combination. Here they are for anyone else in the same boat - I mean plane 🙂 1216, 2047, 828 1010 Regards,
  10. I put some more effort into this and found I can get the 750 to only appear where there are existing displays like the numbers in the radios below the bezel. I can even click on that area and the 750 will pop out. When I bring the 750 up into the Carenado installed bezel by changing the cooridinates nothing appears in what was the original 430. I've read other posts where a separate Carenado GTN folder is mentioned.I don't have anything like that. The bezel only appears in the plane's Object folder. There are 2 PNGs - GTN750_BG, GTN750_BG_LIT and also a GTN.obj. When a picture is taken of the panel with the bezel it only shows the original 430 that is behind the bezel. I'm sure Carenado meant this to be a bit more easy.
  11. I tried various display positions and dimensions with no luck so I figured I would post my .ini. Note that I replaced the frame.rect back to 0,0,0,0. [GTN_750_1.WINDOW] ; display window if true. visible = true ; show screen only gauge if true. nobezel = false ; display type: WINDOW,PANEL2D,PANEL3D,PANELS frame.type = WINDOW ; display position and dimension (left,top,width,height) frame.rect = 122,1374,609,601 ; screen only border size (pixels). border.size = 0 ; screen only border color (#RGB or #RGBA). border.rgba = #000000 ; enable mouse clickspots if true, disable if false (use SHIFT to override) usemouse = true ; left mouse button on the screen toggles popup window if true (requires SHIFT+left mouse button). popleft = false ; right mouse button on the screen toggles popup window if true (requires XP11.1). popright = true ; VR mode position and dimension (left,top,width,height) (requires XP11.20) vrmode.rect = 0,790,830,790 ; display as popout window if true (requires XP11.1). undocked = true ; display mouse tooltips if true. tooltips = false ; freeze display position if true. locked = false [GTN_750_1.PANELS] ; display window if true. visible = true ; show screen only gauge if true. nobezel = true ; display type: WINDOW,PANEL2D,PANEL3D,PANELS frame.type = PANELS ; display position and dimension (left,top,width,height) frame.rect = 0,0,0,0 ; screen only border size (pixels). border.size = 0 ; screen only border color (#RGB or #RGBA). border.rgba = #000000 ; enable mouse clickspots if true, disable if false (use SHIFT to override) usemouse = true ; left mouse button on the screen toggles popup window if true (requires SHIFT+left mouse button). popleft = false ; right mouse button on the screen toggles popup window if true (requires XP11.1). popright = true Daskal
  12. I just purchased the Carenado F33A for X-Plane 11 as it is adapted for the RealityXP 750. I also just purchased the 750 and installed it. My problem is that the 750 does appear perfectly where it should on the F33 panel but it will not display anything nor pop out when selected like the Bendix a/p does on this particular plane. I am able to call up the 750 using the Xplane plug-in menu instruction "show window". The 750 pops up as a separate window and appears to be working just fine. When I close it. it's gone and can only be called up again using the plugin menu. Is there something I need to install in the plane file that the RealityXP installer failed to do? The 750 panel's bezel controls by the way are recognized by the airplane and do work well with 750 in it's separate window. I just need to get the panel display itself "lit". Daskal
