    Re: Autopilot Disengage

    Ok I solved my problem by assigning "Autopilot OFF" in FSUIPC button page.

    But now new problems appear.

    GAIFR

    1. I can't find any assignments in FSUIPC or elsewhere to operate the
    Chronometer using a remote keyboard or a Goflight pushbutton (p is there any way
    to program buttons to operate the "select", "ST/SP" and "Reset" buttons?

    2. The upper triangle on the artificial horizon on the C172 is not centered
    when wings are leveled. It has a diference of about 3 mm.

    3. The C172 has an Ammeter that is not reproduced in GAIFR. Is it possible to
    add one to the C172 panel?

    Instructor Station

    1. Whenever I take off from an airport and want to land on ANOTHER airport,
    using ILS the approach page, it DOES NOT show the aircraft landing there
    although I can see it in the report.

    2. Whenever I adjust the traffic PMInst crashes without repair. I must use
    Task Manager to shut it down and restart.

    3. The logger seems to add horizontal lines randomly during the information
    recording. They occupy the full screen and seem to dissapear if I change to
    another page and return.

    4. No Logger report like the approach! I find the logger to be more important
    than the approach and would really be very useful to have a report in html
    or other format like the approach.

    5. When putting the map in full screen, on the approach page the artificial
    horizon "drops" down out of the rulers an appears with inaccurate
    readings.

    6. Is there a chance to add "rain" or "snow" or even "thunderstorm" to the
    Environment page?

    7. Is there going to be any possibility to download REAL Weather? If so from
    which souce? Jeppesen?

    8. Are there tutorials to help creating failures on the Failures page?

    Please be so king to answer these questions the best you can and please keep
    up de good work.

    Thank you.

    I do not think we have offsets for that, unless you use the 542A keyboard
    input... keys 4, 5 and 6. These correspond to the commands 52, 53 and 54.

    Are you using build 96?

    Will put it in the list.

    Hmmm... where precisely does it not show it?

    I haven't observed that.

    Are you using any special tools for the traffic?

    How frequent is this, which graphics card and drivers?

    It should have CSV file output in the current version, did you see it?

    I do not follow? Map in full screen how?

    I tried that, but haven't had much success with it so far.

    I think there are very complex and good tools for that...

    > 8. Are there tutorials to help creating failures on the Failures page?


    Not tutorials as such, there is a description of how offsets can be added.

    Hello again, thanks for the quick reply.

    I'll try this. But may I remind you I have Magenta on a second computer. So
    this can only work in the computer with PM.

    >Are you using build 96?


    Yes I am.

    >Will put it in the list.


    Thank you.

    >Hmmm... where precisely does

    Well pretty much any airport, really.

    >I haven't observed that.

    It doesn't actually crash. It freezes and does not allow any further changes.
    So I consider it a crash. No special tools for traffic, just plain old FS
    AI.

    >How frequent is this, which
    >graphics card and drivers?


    Very frequent and random. I think I must change my graphics card as I wanted
    to add a secondary monitor, so I will be on stand-by for this one. it's a
    6200 with latest Nvidia drivers.

    I have build 48. No CSV reports.

    >I do not follow? Map in full
    >screen how?


    In the main screen I get to choose to put the map in fullscreen on the
    background. If I do so and pick the approach page I get the error I mentioned.
    This does not happen using just the approach page without the background
    map.

    On of my training procedures is control over adverse weather. I can only add
    visibility, clouds and winds, but rain and wind gusts are really needed.

    >I think there are very complex
    >and good tools for that...


    I'm really a newbie on this. Can you please tell me some?

    Are those on the manual? can't seem to find it.

    Thank you so much

    No, it will work from any computer, it will check those offsets... try it.

    No, I do not understand what you are saying... it depends on the tuned ILS
    and it should show the graph independently from where you are... so I am
    trying to understand where *in the program* it isn't showing what.

    I do not know what the current "hot" weather generator is... perhaps someone

    else may jump in, or google it with reviews...

    So this should be done in the Main computer using FSUIPC button assignment?
    I'm sorry this is all news to me.

    Let's say I take off from any given airport Without ILS. the Station states
    "ILS Inactive" which is true. I fly to an international airport (say LPPT)
    and tune in the ILS frequency. For LPPT it's 109.10. The "ILS Inactive"
    shuts off, and on the Position page I write "LPPT" and choose "ILS Rwy 3
    (109.10)". When I come back to the Approach page I should get the airplane icon
    moving on the LOC and GS, but I don't. Then If I press the report
    button,even with no graphic on the screen, the html file shows me the information I
    wanted, the LOC and GS. So I guess it does record the information, it just
    doesn't show on screen.

    I've been here. No new Intructor files. I've found a program to install the
    CSV reader in the reports folder. But can't read the LOGG files with
    anything.

    I read it already. I guess I must read it again.


    Thanks again
