  1. Hi, Before an official release, I wanted to let you try the v2.4.1 release candidate! If there are no 'crash' reports, it will become officially released. A quick list of the changes: Massive performance gains: our tests systems show minimal to nearly no FPS changes from 1 to 2 GTN (and even up with 2GNS + 2GTN in some cases - YMMV). TCAS missing targets corrected. Revisited and greatly improved all 'panel instruments links', with support for mixing GNS and GTN devices (GPS datarefs, HSI datarefs, NAV datarefs and related instruments). Always On option: now you can opt to have your devices 'always on' regardless of the avionics switch. This shall help with 3rd party aircraft with custom/non-standard electric buses. Download link for both e-commerce installers Update: the installers have been re-uploaded with the Win10 fix!
  2. I'm pleased to officially announce the release of our new simulation product: GNS 530W/430W V2 for X-Plane Legendary Gauges Redefined! Our new offering builds on our unique expertise with Garmin GNS simulation since 2002. Now packing more value for the money with TCAD and TAWS bundled in standard, we are also offering CROSSFILL at no additional cost! And there is more: to also thank our loyal customers for so many years of flight simulation excitement, we are adding a 10% discount coupon on top, valid until January 19th 2017, for customers of any of our products! Time has never been better to experience modern 64 bits simulation: X-Plane! Grab you copy and your coupon: http://www.reality-xp.com/index2.html
  3. Do you use a lot of programs alongside your Flight Sim? E.g: Weather Engines, Virtual Airline Tracking Software, Multiplayer Network Clients etc. I have developed a program which will start these programs at once! Some Features: Automatically sets the CPU priority of each program, Multiple profiles for different setups, Supports FSX/FSX:SE, Prepar3d(v3 and v4) and X-Plane, Nice easy to use User Interface. Download now at: http://fsprogramstarter.tk
  4. Hi, Before an official release, I wanted to let you try the v2.4.5 release candidate! It is meant to be the next official release If there are no 'widespread crash' reports. List of changes since v2.4.2: Added selected discrete inputs (see below) Interim 'fix' for TCAD on PiloteEdge / Vatsim. Settings Panel cosmetic enhancements. Attempt to fix the issue for the couple customers running Win8. Further performance and stability enhancement. List of changes since v2.4.1: added support for mouse click-spots in 3D and 2D panels fixed issue with transparent/last screen image when powering off/on the device. new render targets option: "PANELS" supports both 3D and 2D panels at once. List of the changes since v2.4.0: Massive performance gains: our tests systems show minimal to nearly no FPS changes from 1 to 2 GTN (and even up with 2GNS + 2GTN in some cases - YMMV). TCAS missing targets corrected. Revisited and greatly improved all 'panel instruments links', with support for mixing GNS and GTN devices (GPS datarefs, HSI datarefs, NAV datarefs and related instruments). Always On option: now you can opt to have your devices 'always on' regardless of the avionics switch. This shall help with 3rd party aircraft with custom/non-standard electric buses. Additional notes (v2.4.5): The new v2.4.5 adds three new X-Plane commands: CDI_SOURCE, OBS_MODE, TAWS_INHIBIT. You can map these commands to your joystick for example (there are standard X-Plane commands). As for the missing online TCAD targets, we introduce an interim fix. The issue is very simple: X-Plane SDK tells how many aircraft are active around you. However, although the SDK also provides a function for PilotEdge-like plugins to set the number of active aircraft, this value drops to 0 when on PilotEdge for example. We don't know if this is a bug in X-Plane (the function doesn't work), or if this is a bug in PiloteEdge (they don't call the function). Therefore, v2.4.5 considers there is up to 20 aircraft (X-Plane maximum) whenever X-Plane is not controlling AI traffic. Previous additional notes: The list of panel types has been extended and now supports the following (frame.type) : WINDOW, PANEL2D, PANEL3D, PANELS The new 'PANELS' helps for aircraft with only a 3D cockpit, as there is no need to configure 2 separate INI file render targets entries for the 3D and the 2D panels. A single entry covers both. Mouse support in 3D/2D panels comes in the form of new settings in the INI file. For frame.type = 'WINDOW' comes a new setting (default shown): ; enable mouse clickspots if true, disable if false (use SHIFT to override) usemouse = true When true, the popup window supports clickspots as before. When false, you have to depress the SHIFT key while clicking to temporarily override the restriction. This might become useful in the future for panels where you'd expect disabling all mouse interactions with the device (hardware controllers?), but don't want to have it in the virtual cockpit. For frame.type = 'PANELS' (or PANEL2D/PANEL3D) (default shown): ; enable mouse option: NONE,POPUP,TOUCHSCREEN usemouse = TOUCHSCREEN This lets you select if the screen should only toggle the popup window, or if you want full touchscreen support in the virtual cockpit!

  5. Hi, Before an official release, I wanted to let you try the v2.2.5 release candidate! It is meant to be the next official release If there are no 'widespread crash' reports. List of changes since v2.2.2: Interim 'fix' for TCAD on PiloteEdge / Vatsim. Settings Panel cosmetic enhancements. Attempt to fix the issue for the couple customers running Win8.

  7. Hello Saitek funs and users! There where many requests about LINDA to support Saitek Pro Flight panels. The first step is accomplished - Saitek Pro Flight Switch panel is now fully supported. You can assign anything you need to every switch on the panel. Gears state indication is also avialable. Actually this was not too hard. Next day I've got the panel it was already working with LINDA. Other Saitek panels could be supported also, but as usual I need my hands on them to make them work. I don't need them myself, as I'm using VRi MCP Combo for most operations, so I'm not going to buy other Saitek devices myself. But if anyone and/or Saitek want and could sponsor this development, this will be done as soon, as I'll get the hardware, And as usual with all the flexibility LINDA offers. Saitek Gauges panels are special case - I'm not sure yet, if I could make them work with LINDA. Latest release and common information about LINDA is here: http://forum.avsim.net/topic/338310-linda-v113-released/
  8. Hi, like you might have noticed a few customers have been having problems with the latest GTN update, and a few with the latest GNS update. Problems are mostly on XP11 Beta 9, and XP10 is working fine. It goes as far as I've just read a customer cannot start the simulator with the GTN unless he releases the Saitek toe brakes... go figure this one, this is a XP11 beta. Nevertheless, we've been following and testing about 3 different builds with about 5 different customers directly, until we've reached enough stability, and we've now managed to get there. Because of this, the next updates were delayed a little, but since we are almost done, I wanted to let you know about what's coming up! For the GTN, next update will include flight plan import (native .gpl text format), user waypoints import, and per-aircraft checklists (native .ace format). For the GNS, next update will include flight plan import (native .fpl xml format) AND flight plan export (native .fpl xml fomat) For both the GTN and the GNS, next update will also come with a GUI for setting up the devices in-sim. This will make it easier to configure most if not all options, and there is no need to exit the simulator: it is a native popup window! Here is a screenshot of what it looks like:

  23. Cascade Game Foundry (CGF) is thrilled to announce two additions to their Infinite Scuba game: a new Dr. Sylvia Earle avatar and a new Belize dive site. Dr. Earle, called "Her Deepness" by the New Yorker and the New York Times, is a legendary oceanographer, environmentalist, a National Geographic Explorer-in-Residence, and the founder of Mission Blue (http://missionblue.org), a global initiative dedicated to raising public awareness about critical marine issues. "Mission Blue is delighted to partner with Cascade Game Foundry on Infinite Scuba," says Dr. Earle. "Experiencing the beauty, mystery, and fragility of the ocean in such a hands-on way will inspire the people who play the game to protect our planet's blue heart." "It is a true honor to include Dr. Earle as part of our diving game experience," says Kathie Flood, Managing Director and Co-Founder of Cascade Game Foundry. "Her endeavors as an ocean explorer and conservationist inspired the creation of Infinite Scuba and will allow our players to experience the ocean's beauty and the cause of preservation on a whole new level." In support of Dr. Earle's efforts, CGF will donate one dollar (USD) for every copy of Infinite Scuba sold. Dr. Earle specifically chose the new dive site, Glover's Reef, located in Belize and part of the Mesoamerican Reef, the second largest reef in the world and home to the world's largest fish, the whale shark.

  24. http://www.ipacs.de/forum/showthread.php/6666-New-version-or-new-update?p=29800#post29800 This post confirms that the next aeroflyFS version will include the ability to fly anywhere in the entire world, and that the flight physics will be improved. All aircraft from the first version will be included as well, but the Facebook posts also show plenty of new aircraft including jets and a helicopter. I'm very excited about this.
