    Thank you! I haven't tried custom coding yet but I think it is time to start learning how it works!

    hi !
    Check on weather radar (use the top right corner knob set on "log" )

    then use the "TK" key to travel to active failures
    it should have an active failure

    you have to repair by resetting that failure, then fuse should remain in place

    I've had one report of this from one of my beta testers on the Dukes, but I have been unable to reproduce it myself. I'm waiting for his troubleshooting efforts right now. In the meantime, can you answer a couple of questions?

    Are you using SU15 Beta?

    What version of the TDS software are you running?

    Did you make any of the modifications to the WT GNS 530 from this post? (this is no longer necessary with Sim Update 15)

    @Black-Square
    Thanks for the tips. I will check them out.

    Thank you so much for another way of seeing these variables. As it turns out it is SPAD v9.15.54 that is not seeing the variable change.

    Thanks again

    Great! Glad to hear it! That file should be overwritten when you download Sim Update 15, but if you have any issues after that, just delete the file altogether. This will force the launcher to download a new version.

  • Baron cabin temperature control

    I've learned more about the temperature control system in specifically the Baron, and I need to improve it with an update. As it is, you shouldn't need to turn the heater on and off, though. The cabin heat pull-knob on the bottom left of the panel is used to control the admittance of heated air into the cabin. Here's the relevant section of the manual:

    The cabin is heated via a combustion heater in the aircraft’s nose, and funneled to the cabin via
    the “CABIN HEAT” pull knob under the pilot’s subpanel. The combustion heater is ignited with
    the “HTR” switch, and will consume fuel from the left main tank only at a rate of about one-half
    gallon per hour. The exchanged air can be very hot, so operators should take caution when
    applying the cabin heat to reduce pilot workload during critical phases of flight, and also to limit
    the possibility of a cabin fire. The rate of heating is controlled via the cabin vents and heater
    blower, as with equalization and air conditioning.

    Do not confuse "rate of heating/cooling" (rate of change) with the target temperature. Turn on the combustion heater to enable heating, and then pull the cabin heat pull-handle until the cabin is at your desired temperature. If it's too hot, push the knob back in.

    The easiest solution is to look at the L:Vars "L:var_radio1Mode", and "L:var_radio2Mode"; however the meaning of those variables can change across my aircraft. I would recommend using the variables for each specific GPS (as I've been doing more myself, as my aircraft become more complicated). Those are...

    WT GNS 530:
    L:XMLVAR_GPS_DISABLED_AS530_1
    L:XMLVAR_GPS_DISABLED_AS530_2

    WT GNS 430:
    L:XMLVAR_GPS_DISABLED_AS430_1
    L:XMLVAR_GPS_DISABLED_AS430_2 (does not exist in any of my aircraft yet)

    TDS GTNxi 750:
    TDSGTNXI_Inactive750U1
    TDSGTNXI_Inactive750U2 (does not exist in any of my aircraft yet)

    TDS GTNxi 650:
    TDSGTNXI_Inactive650U1
    TDSGTNXI_Inactive650U2 (does not exist in any of my aircraft yet)

    PMS50 GTN 750:
    L:XMLVAR_GPS_DISABLED_GTN750_1
    L:XMLVAR_GPS_DISABLED_GTN750_2 (does not exist in any of my aircraft yet)

    PMS50 GTN 650:
    L:XMLVAR_GPS_DISABLED_GTN650_1
    L:XMLVAR_GPS_DISABLED_GTN650_2 (does not exist in any of my aircraft yet)

    KLN90B:
    L:KLN90B_Disabled

    @kityatyi, the MSFS/FSX/P3D version will be adequate to get you started. There is a 14 day free trial so you can try it out before spending the money for a license.

    There is no built-in method to do this, but I can offer you an easy solution to implement in the code yourself. First, you must locate the appropriate behaviors XML file for the aircraft you're interested in, such as "AnalogBaron.XML". Search for for "Gma340Location" and "Kma24Location" within the file.

    If you want the GMA340 to always be visible, and never show the KMA24, then replace the two blocks of code you found above with the following:

    <Component ID="Gma340Location" Node="Gma340Location"> <UseTemplate Name="ASOBO_GT_Visibility_Code"> <VISIBILITY_CODE> 1 </VISIBILITY_CODE> </UseTemplate> </Component> <Component ID="Kma24Location" Node="Kma24Location"> <UseTemplate Name="ASOBO_GT_Visibility_Code"> <VISIBILITY_CODE> 0 </VISIBILITY_CODE> </UseTemplate> </Component>

    Oh, my bad, thought it was an error that had stayed over from my mapping effort. Probably decimals I sat while reading that tutorial, and forgot about it, as I never mapped that function to the Radio Control Panel. Thanks for the insight.

    I guess this is what I'm using

    Seems to be working correctly.

    @Black-Square Yes, that's what I did. And it seems to work ok. I thought the FAST_DEC and _INC were standard events, that's why I mentioned them, if Asobo don't use them either, using multiple commands is something my my slight OCD is perfectly happy with... 😅

    Works perfectly in both the Baron and Bonanza. Did not touch the code I posted above.

    I came to the conclusion I was advancing my throttle too fast. when I slowly advance it, the engine starts as it should
