Re: CP Flight mutli737 radio

Does it work using the cpflight testallhardware program?
It might need an mcp firmware upgrade.
I have mcp v3 ethernet and 2 737multi com and new multi nav. Had to get latest firmware to have them recognized. Multicomm works fine on vatsim.

Re: NAV VOR tones not heard on the ground

Hearing the vor signals is a function of slant range distance and obstructions. On the ground this might be caused by distance from the station or buildings blocking the signal. I have experienced this on the ground at los Angeles (klax). The vor(lax) is located on the airport at the west end of runways 25L/25R. If I am parked at one of terminals I cant get a valid I'd, however taxiing (away from terminal buildings) I pick up the signal.

Re: CPFlight Multi-Nav

Yes, I was on my test system. The problem was that the mcp(mcp Pro v2) was firmware 116 ( really old) I got the latest firmware for the old device from Paolo (135) and after flashing the MCP it is working now.. So user error!
My SIM machine has the MCPPro V3 ethernet so should be supported there without an update. I always test out on my test system.:

CPFlight Multi-Nav

I see where the Prosim B738Max supports the multi-nav radio, however I don't see support in Prosim B738 V3 anywhere.
When I plug in the radio, I just get
ILS 11850
VOR 20668
Neither of these are in any nav radio( prosim pedestal or IOS com/nav) Also, 20668 is an invalid frequency ( should be 108 - 136 ????

Is this device supported?

Re: Change of Flight Level - Descent Announcement

In the U.S. the initial descent announcement is not made immediately after leaving cruise altitude, but typically further into the descent. I was thinking that instead of using the cruise-1000ft trigger you could use distance remaining. You know the destination airport(or last waypoint), so using an approximation of top of descent based on a typical 3 degree rule of thumb(altitude/ 1000)×3 = miles from airport to start your descent. You could use this approximation as a parameter in your descent announcement trigger. (Distance remaining < estimated tod point)This would work as well for long higher altitude flights and shorter lower altitude flights.
Just a thought

Re: CG and trim differences with Flight/Visual models v1.54 & v1.55

I have noticed a :mrgreen: similar behavior. I thought it was a yoke calibration issue. Aces yokes. P3dv5.1hf1, prosim 3b8 flight model 1.53. Have to pull yoke full back and rotation is extremely slow.

Re: STAR issues with runway change

I had similar issue (v3b4.1)flying into kord. I received a descend via, and an expect ils9R. I put in only the new ils 9r. The fms removed all the waypoints on the star except the last fix. Ended up using hdg sel and lvl chg until I could manually reinsert some waypoints and crossing restrictions in legs page.
After the flight, I started experimenting (on the gnd) to see what was happening. I found that I had to re enter not only the new rwy, but also re select the arrival star as well. Then close up any discos. If I didnt reenter the star, it deleted all intermediate waypoints.

Re: Position of screens problem. Does not remember position

I've experienced a similar behavior when fine tuning the sizing. Once saved, and next time I restart prosim Display the window is at the proper x,y position, but has been truncated on the width. I end up with a wi dow whose right margin has been narrowed and I see the ms windows background as a seam where right portion of window should have been. In Other words, the wi dow is not extending to the right and the panels are truncated. So it is not a scaling issue, but a window dimensions issue.. I tried manually editing the config file to change the window size, but it didn't resolve the issue. Not sure if it has anything to do with widow resolution of the monitor

Prosim 738 B3.03 Prosim Audio crashes with no SharpDX.dll

The latest beta b3.03 Prosim Audio is failing initialization due to missing SharpDX.dll.
I copied the dll from the V2 prosimAudio and problem solved.
