  1. Have flown the King Air successfully with but dual GTN 750s working. Fired up the airplane today and only GTN #1 was working, GTN 2 had a small box saying "rebooting". Also, was unable to manipulated any settings, all locked, in the dropdown settings menu. Any ideas? my software is up to date.
  2. The price for our SIMBITWORLD - A PILOT'S LIFE software is reduced by 30% until Wednesday, the 14th of July 2021Have a look on the simMarket page: https://secure.simmarket.com/simbitworld-a-pilots-life.phtml or the application website: https://www.simbitworld.com/aplDetails.html
  3. The beauty of MCE that can take the load F/O tasks, so you can enjoy flying as real as it can get. In VR in particular, you don't want to open menus or sneak to the desktop to start pushback for example. I use "Better Pushback" plugin in X-Plane, which is awesome addon, but I wanted MCE to do the job for me, and I came across this, maybe some knew it before in P3D for GSX I think, but here is the way for X-Plane: - Open MCE General tap, tap "more options" - Tap config file, press ok - Go down until you find [MECHANIC] section -Change the value of "PushWithGSXandAES=1", save the file Now in X-Plane, I plan the pushback before get into VR, then I ask the command to MCE "Ground are you Ready for pushback", and the Better Pushback starts. see the video @ 43:21. What I wish: - I think the mechanic hands over to Better Pushback and disconnect, it would be nice to still have his voice "Rotation" and saying "Ignition" - Is there a way to disconnect Better Pushback with MCE? I do it manually Thanks
  4. I haven't been able to pay attention to all of the gauges within my cessna panel, but I have just noticed that they are not working. When I click on them to set them up, I notice they said "Displayed for X-Plane only". OK, so I removed them from the panel and selected 2 others only to find out they all say ".....for X-Plane only". None of them work with FSX. So what am I supposed to do to make these work in FSX?
  5. Hello everyone! I am an FSX user who often uses the website fuelplanner.com to calculate the required fuel for his flights. The thing is however, that when I visited the website on the 15th of December, I was greeted with a quite unfriendly window asking me to sign against FCC's decision about net neutrality. To make things clear, I am totally against this decision, and I would happily offer my sign against it, IF IT WAS WORTH ANYTHING. You see, as this decision only affects the USA, I see no reason for someone else but the US citizens to sign against it. So, I closed the annoying and unfriendly red window I was greeted with, only to find out that I can no longer use the site. The only thing I see when I visit the website is this: var _bftn_options = { theme: 'glitch' }; So, does anyone know who is the word not allowed who runs the website? So I can find him, and ask him how to reset the website to its normal form and sign the damn thing? Alternatively, can anyone recommend of a good, hopefully free, fuel planner?
  6. I had the chance this week to meet up with Austin at our local airport KCUB. As an air traffic controller at Columbia Approach, Austin and I have developed a unique relationship. What a great yet knowledgeable individual. There are some amazing features that X Plane is getting ready to roll out. In another post I'll post my video interview and detailed follow up on what he has planned! Of course this information is no secret and Austin has allowed me to share it with the flight sim community. Just to give you a tease, some may or may not know, but Austin and his team intend to make this lovely simulation platform, XPlane, available in several different languages. Sure, English is the language of aviation, but why not cater to those who don't speak it? Austin and I speak on the frequency several times a week and no matter what, he always remains professional. He is one heck of a pilot and friend.
  7. Excited to see there is an update from XP11 beta already. Unfortunately, installer wants me to click through each of the 1000's of modified files. Seems the "Do this for all files in this directory" button doesn't work, leaving you to have to click "Overwrite" of "Keep" for each file. Anyone else have this problem? Any work around?
  8. I have relocated this post to the "HARDWARE CONTROLLERS, JOYSTICKS, ...." forum. (I don't know how to delete this original post) Sorry for the confusion. I have a "Desktop Aviator model 2450B" gps unit (with the vga screen) that I'm contemplating including in a new cockpit build. I haven't installed the unit before, and have a few questions, should anyone here be familiar with these units: (1) Sim compatibility: I understand they are compatible with FSX. I would like to know if they work with FSX Steam and/or Prepar3d? (2) Reliability: Before I make up a place for it in the cockpit, I'd like to know whether these units reliably install and operate? I ask because I see the manufacturer no longer offers these units. Any advice is appreciated, Many thanks, Brian Vancouver, BC
  9. Hello, I am wondering whether the following hardware configuration is suitable for use with Prepar3d, latest version? I have not used Prepar3d before, and am not especially computer savvy. My environment would include Orbx and either ga or corporate aircraft. If it is not sufficient, I would appreciate any practicable advice on which components will need to be upgraded (to what?). I'll either be using three (3), 24" 1080p monitors or a larger size UHD tv. Thanks, Brian Specs: CPU: Intel Core i7-6700K Socket LGA 1151 Unlocked (...should it be delided to ~4,7Ghz ?)

  10. Hey guys! It’s been a while since I’ve been on avsim! I recently purchased the Oculus Rift while it was on sale for Black Friday. One of the first things I did was run X-plane 11 with the flyinside demo. I was very impressed with how it all felt/looked. Except everything was noticeably more blurry than other native VR programs. I was a bit disappointed with the FPS I was getting too, however I am running a MSI Gtx 970sc so I can’t complain too much. I did some research and found out that the guys over at laminar are planning on bringing Native VR to X-plane after the 11.10 release. Also they said they were working on switching to the Vulcan API, which is very exciting for us summers that are struggling with low FPS. I haven’t really seen much info on where they are at with either of these things. Does anyone know when or if they will bring the native VR before the end of the year? There are only a few more weeks of 2017 so hopefully they will make it a Christmas present for us! Cpu: Intel Core i7 4770k haswell (quad core) Thanks for reading! Hopefully someone has some info because I want to get flyinside, but I don’t want to purchase it then have X-plane come out with native vr! Good things come to those who wait😬
  11. Hello, I wanted to share my actual Home Cockpit Project. I think that some of you should be interesting. I'm making a Home Cockpit of Cessna 182/206 for P3D and Xplane. The Flight Desk is made by Ruscool in New Zealand. I make the cockpit in Wood by my Carpenter. The Rudders come from TRC and the Yoke from Flight Illusion. More details in next posts... Here are some 3D views of the Cockpit : I also made a Facebook page : https://www.facebook.com/LeNezenLair1/
  12. I have XPwideclient - XPUIPC - Plan-G working perfectly together on my X-Plane 10 multi-PC multi-monitor setup.At very least this suggests that I understand the settings required of the programs, have set them up correctly,and that my network is configured and working correctly. However, try as I might I cannot get the programs to play together on my X-Plane 11 installation using the same hardware. All programs are run as admin and firewalls are down on all PCs. I have opened Port 54942 (which I remember seeing somewhere as being associated with XPwideclient) on my router - did not make any difference!!! .XPUIPC is configured properly in Resources/ plugins folder. When I try to launch XPwideclient v2.0.0.3 with XP11 running it just 'sits there' without any connection to the server. XPwidclient.txt shows: Waiting for UDP from server Status INIT granting multicast to 192.138.1.9 Status NOT CONNECTED Closing connection to server OK I am at my wits end - have searched and searched over the last week for a solution but apart from the usual " configure the .ini properly". "take down firewalls" etc etc the solution has evaded me. Can anyone suggest what else I might try? Bob Ward Melbourne, Australia (A very chilly Melbourne)
  13. I installed the Elite Hardware IF today AND purchased a license but am having major issues getting it to work with my Elite Pro Panel SE and AP3000. Running Windows 10. Attempting to run a Elite Pro Panel SE, Elite rudder pedals, & Elite AP3000 avionics panel. I first installed the Elite hardware drivers. I have Elite BATD FlightSim v8.6. All three hardware components work fine with the Elite flight simulator. When I bring up SimPlugin's Elite Hardware IF, all three hardware components show correctly in the status window. When I go CALIBRATE, the rudder pedals and toe brakes work. HOWEVER, the Pro Panel SE yoke, throttle quadrants, mixture and prop levers have no effect. The AP3000 doesn't seem to be recognized either. Second issue... When I start Xplane 10 and go to "equipment", I see a dialogue box that lists Elite hardware, but I see no where to calibrate the Elite controls; no controls responses either. SimPlugin installed in smame directory as Xplane 10. Any help would be appreciated. Dave

  15. Maybe this already exists, and please tell me if it does. But I've always thought it would be amazing to have a payware, VC-25 package. An airplane meticulously designed after the VC-25's. With the 747-200B airframe, and some interior modeling including the president's office/conference room and bedroom, the operations center in the hump, and the specialized flight deck. There's certainly enough information on the web to create this, with a little creativity of course. I would love to make something like this myself, but I have no experience whatsoever in designing flight sim aircraft. (Not even repaints). Definitely feel like someone could make good money off of this. Pictures of the flight deck aren't the easiest to find, however ABC did a tour where some good interior images can be found here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DD7QuVB3Grk
  16. So, I had x plane 11 on my laptop: CPU: 1.8 GHz RAM: 8gb 750gb HDD And I just switched it over to my desktop: CPU: 3.8 GHz RAM: 8gb 1tb HDD, newly formatted and a brand new install of windows 10 * My desktop does not have an upgraded graphics card nor does my laptop * All settings are on minimum I have not run any tests on my desktop yet to see the usage of the cpu and other items. I dont believe my cpu is overheating because everything else runs perfect. This just doesnt make sense to me. I can actually fly a plane on my laptop with a slower processor, but not on my desktop with the same RAM and nearly twice the processing power. Any ides are welcome. Id rather not shell out extra cash for a graphics card, but I might be willing to purchase more RAM.
  17. Many people really wants to fly the 747 pmdg in X-Plane 11, many people are tired of this.... Please PMDG help us !!!! we need you in x-plane !!!!

  21. Hi guys, I've always had both P3D and X-Plane, but mostly prefer P3D because of the PMDG products. However, one thing that I've noticed over time is that the wing flex in X-Plane looks very realistic compared to P3D (a smooth "wobble", so to speak, whereas in P3D it's a slower/more clunky animation). Is this just a limitation of P3D, or has someone figured out a way to smooth it out a bit and have it animate more realistically? For reference, here's a comparison: P3d: X-plane: Regards,
