Re: Cold Weather Altimetry errors ....

Sorry, no. I believe this is the first it's ever been mentioned. I think you have to have fairly extreme temperature differences from ISA to have a significant error, although I'm sure a good developer could build it into a gauge.

Re: P3D External Sim Driven Aircraft

The SDK’s SimpleAirplane sample has some good examples of how to do this. Gauges and animations are generally configured using properties or simulation variables. Most of the simulation variables defined in the SDK are for the default aircraft implementation, so you will have to “register” your own ...

Re: Crosswind landing - Flight model issues

Your previous comment is important to note: The previous PMDG 737NGX did not not it, never had this issue at all and used to love strong crosswind landings. I have not heard of, or experienced, this issue before today. It would be great to get verification if this issue is isolated to this particula...

Re: HF Radio Fequencies

The aircraft/gauge developer would have the source code for the DLL.

Re: HF Radio Fequencies

I think the default aircraft still assume the old range. You would need to work with the aircraft developer for any particular aircraft.

Re: HF Radio Fequencies

This is likely a problem with the radio display. The gauge itself may have assumptions built in. This is the case with the Bendix King radios in some of the default aircraft. The aircraft developer that sets the higher range will need to assure their gauge display is compatible. You may be able to s...

Re: Turbulence

There should be a turbulence selection associated with wind layers in the advanced weather settings.

Re: Bug: Body acceleration not applied correctly

Setting an acceleration value like this does not prevent the internal simulation from also writing to the acceleration data. So you are probably just fighting with the forces generated from the simulation. Depending on the rate at which you are sending, and the rate at which the aircraft is simulati...

Re: Issue Reading TACAN Parameters via Sim Connect

I noticed that you've specified a range of "360" on your Tacan. The default units is meters, so that could be a source of your issue. You probably want "360N" for nautical miles. The default if not specified at all is about 195nm.

Re: Issue Reading TACAN Parameters via Sim Connect

Can you confirm 1) Is the functionality actually there, or is the problem just with the SimConnect... in other words can you configure a basic radio without your SC code? 2) Can you confirm your SimConnect code works as expected with conventional VORs?

Re: Issue Reading TACAN Parameters via Sim Connect

True TACAN functionality was new to Prepar3D in v3. Prior to that aircraft would tend to use co-located VOR/TACAN to create the perception of using TACAN. The properties you are querying are set up specifically for actual TACANs. Try the VOR simulation variables instead. At this time we do not yet h...

Re: Limit Rudder Input

When the flag is set, there will be no effect on the nose wheel steering when providing input to the rudder. Previously, input to the rudder always resulted in nose wheel steering.

Hope this helps,

Re: differential_braking_scale problem.

To be clear, this differential braking functionality is specific to the normal "both" braking input. For example, the period key ('.') is by default mapped to both brakes. Holding that key and deflecting the rudder will be affected by the differential scalar. However, this does not have any impact o...

Re: Exposed Fuelflow -> N1 controller table in .air file ?

One thing to note is that the SDK installs under Program Files by default. Without Admin privileges, asm2air will fail if it attempts to output within Program Files. If you run from a command line you would see "ASM2AIR: Error!". Make sure you are outputting to a location that does not require Admin...
