  1. I think that this is a deliberate choice from the devs. In reality, you have to enter the zero fuel weight and the CG in the FMS. The same procedure is simulated in the Fenix (the pilot receives a loadsheet to enter the data in the MCDU. The Fenix's EFB gives you the TOW calculated by simbrief, but it may not match exactly the data received from the loadsheet). The difference, at this stage, is that you have to enter the payload yourself in the 737 FMS menu (GSX does now that automatically for you when loading the aircraft). Then, you can get your TOW in the EFB to calculate your performance. I am not a commercial pilot, but it seems to me that this procedure is more realistic. According to what real pilot 737NGDriver says in his video, the FMS only gives you approximative speeds for take-off and landing, because it does not take into account the length and the condition (dry or wet) of the runway (as if packs or antiice are ON or OFF). That's why real pilots are needing a EFB...
  2. In french, we have a famous expression about jokes : "the shortest are the better" ("les plus courtes sont les meilleures"). The EFB will be available tomorrow, this sterile debate should be closed. And remember rule nb 1 in aviation : fly the plane first ! 😉
  3. MUS is the IAF for a STAR flying from the West, NERAS from the East (like BORDI7R). In both cases, you will get a vectoring for the approach, for example to join LEMPU 1N for an ILS approach. In Simbrief, you must change the runway to 04L, if it gives you the 04R.
  4. Usually at LFMN, the runway for landing is the O4L (04R is used for departures). After MUS (the end of the STAR if you are arriving from the west), you get a VECTOR segment : if you are flying on line with an ATC, he or she will give you a heading (so, don't clear the discontinuity in the FMC, as DAD should have done I presume, because he was arriving to NISAR, from the north-east) : a heading to LEMPU to intercept the ILS 04L or a heading of about 90°, then a direct to BISBO for a RNAV A (then VPT A) 04L (the usual approach for noise reasons on the French riviera, if meteo conditions allow it, e.g. a ceiling no more less than 3000 ft : minimums is 2000 ft for this approach). So, on approach to Nice, fly the vector segment, then program a direct to LEMPU or BISBO. Hope it will help you flying this beautiful approach (the more challenging beiing the 22R...).
  5. You may not compare MSFS 2024 with MSFS 2020. Developpers will not have to build a add-on from scratch. See Asobo official statement : Will all purchases users have made from the Marketplace be transferrable to the new simulator? With very few exceptions, virtually all add-ons that work in Microsoft Flight Simulator (2020) today will function in Microsoft Flight Simulator 2024. Add-ons that were purchased from the in-simulator Marketplace will not need to be re-purchased in Microsoft Flight Simulator 2024. Concerning the date of release, remember that the first videos of the B737 700 were published just one week before the release...
  6. Perhaps will I suggest all users to optimize the sim as suggested by GeForce Experience. First time, after installing the new Nvidia driver, I changed nothing to my graphic settings, except DLSS (DX11). I noticed no significative change in FPS. Then, I optimized these settings (staying in DX11) according to GeForce experience optimized settings : the FPS raised significantly (around 10 more) and I gained some more FPS by switiching to DX12. But I have to do more flights, in different weather configuration on heavy airports (flying my beloved PMDG 738 !).
  7. Hello, Just a dumb question : why isn't there, for MSFS, something equivalent to the log.txt in x-plane ? Many users are reporting errors relying on the Windows' events observer. In case of CTD, whatever the cause I presume (the servers e.g.), it comes from one or several files that are not correctly loaded. At this stage, as it seems, nobody can identify what type of files exactly. In x-plane, you may able to identify if the problem comes from a scenery, a plugin, an aircraft, and so on. Devs are using the log.txt to narrow the spectrum of possible issues. Here, from several days one, we are always at the stage of speculations.
  8. Hello, Some people are often asking how to bind the push to talk key, set in Altitude, to their joystick. You cannot still assign a button directly in Altitude settings for MSFS, but only a key on your keyboard. I am a new user of Spad.neXt and, despite the excellent videos of Les O'Reilly (many thanks to him), and because I did not want to use vJoy interface as showned in these videos, I spent some hours to find a extremely simple solution to map correctly my Honeycomb Alpha Yoke (but it will work with any devices). I thought then it would be useful for other people, so I post it here (as on IVAO's forum). Follow these steps : - In Spad.neXt UI, select the joystick button you want to map. Make sure that this is a "normal pushbutton" (in device settings, by default on alpha version). - Select "add event" - Then, "add action"/"keyboard" (no need to add a condition here). - Select "press key" (and no "press and release" this is counter intuitive...) - Click "assign", enter the key you want to : I choose the RCTRL key, because I am sure there is no interference with other keyboard bindings in MSFS (this key is always used in combination with another one). Then, click "assign" again. - Don't change the other parameters (like "active window"). -Press OK Repeat the same procedure for this joystick button : - "Add event" - "Add action"/"Keyboard" - This time, select "release key" - Assign the same key of your keyboard (RCTRL for example) - Press OK. - Finally, don't forget to save your new config. - Launch MSFS so that you may establish the connection with Altitude. - Load Altitude and, in the Settings menu, assign and apply the PTT key of your keyboard (RCTRL in my case). You're done ! Good flights on IVAO, Daniel.
  9. I take the risk to ask 2 "naive" questions (without any intention to complain as I've not purchased this addon yet) : - Is it really immersive to see passengers boarding, or people loading the luggage ? Despite the efforts of MSFS to make human people as realistic as possible, the animation looks yet like a cartoon. For me, the sounds in the flightdeck (like PA announcements) are doing much more for immersion. Then, you really have the feeling to sit in a real airplane. - When you are mostly flying online (but I know only 5-10% flightsimmers do), having to wait a long time for getting the pushback isnt' quite annoying ? Mainly when you are flying in the evening and have to work early on the next morning ! Most ATC positions are closing about 22-23 h (local time). I much appreciate the videos of Emmanuel (737NG Driver). I think that, as for othetr users, multiple CTDs, not the unavoidable bugs of the program, explain his reaction.
  10. Common issue. I had to return my Bravo to Aerosoft for the same problem of failure contact on reverse buttons. I also had to repair by myself my Alpha Yoke because loose of the central control rod. I wrote to Honeycomb to express my disappointment concerning the qualiity of their products. Someone answered me very quickly that Honeycomb is well aware of the issues reported by customers, that concern the first production units and that these issues have been fixed now.
  11. Thank you very much for your advices. I've watched some excellent videos of Les O'Reilly and I will be a big help for matching this addon.
