  1. I saw this post from several months ago discussing the hat switch trim issue, so I hesitated on making a new thread. However, now that it's several months down the line, with many improvements since that thread was finished, is there any chance to revisit this? I've recently started getting back into the 717 and have found that it has vastly improved since I last flew it and is very satisfying and enjoyable to fly, but my one complaint is still this trim switch issue. I understand it's all custom, but could there possibly be an option in the Addon Manager that allows those of us who don't have a registered version of FSUIPC to enjoy the aircraft as we would any other? It'd be a pain to have to swap control assignments for one aircraft. Luckily the autopilot does a great job at trimming it, but I'd like to do more hand-flying, and as it is now it just isn't where it could be IMO. Thanks!
  2. FIX page

    I don't mean to hijack the thread here, but I also noticed that I couldn't create range rings as you can in most other Boeing aircraft. In those, such as in the NGX, you can enter a fix in the FIX page, and then down below, enter something like "/30" into the first blank line to create a 30nm ring around that fix. I don't know whether this is possible in the real life 717 since these FMSes are a bit different than those used in the NGX, but just figured I'd ask.
  3. Speed Bugs

    If the speeds show up as small text with an asterisk (*) next to them in the FMS, you need to click the LSK next to each speed to confirm them. That'll insert the speeds onto the speedtape in magenta, and should scroll with the tape as you gain speed.

    If you don't want to sign up to download the manuals from MyCockpit, I've added them to my Google Drive, where you can download them here. If this isn't allowed, I'd be happy to delete this post!
  5. Choose Weather Radar Provider?

    That's what I've been doing, which is fine because as I found out today, the REX pop-up weather radar gauge still seems to work even with it renamed. I thought maybe there could be something in the Addon Manager that would allow me to choose specifically which radar to use, which is something I know that at least one other as-yet-unreleased aircraft allows.
  6. First of all, I have to thank you guys big time for all the new updates. They're definitely appreciated, especially the scroll wheel acceleration. That was a big one for me! I'm still having my stuttering issues that are related to having the REX/Milviz weather radar installed. I've since just renamed it so that it never gets loaded at all. However, this got me thinking of a possible workaround if nothing else. Could there be an option to choose which weather radar the aircraft will load? This would allow me to use the REX radar in other aircraft that don't have this issue, while still allowing me a stutter-free experience in the 717. I could then simply choose to have the ASN/AS16 radar loaded instead of the REX one and be on my way without needing to rename the file each time I want to fly something else with the radar. It'd be a set-and-forget type workaround, at least for me. Thanks again!
  7. Sim stutters every second

    I hadn't thought of that, and wouldn't you know it actually worked to stop the stuttering? Thanks for the suggestion!
  8. Sim stutters every second

    Submitted, thanks!
  9. Sim stutters every second

    I've updated to and it still stutters every second. Is this something I should submit a ticket for?
  10. Terrain not working

    I'm sure you've tried this, but I'll ask just in case. Have you checked that you have the WX/Terrain brightness knob turned up? It's the same knob you press in to choose WX or Terrain displays.
  11. Sim stutters every second

    Just to update my last post, I tried turning on hardware rendering to see what would happen. It made no difference in the sim stuttering, unfortunately, so I turned it back off. I've also just uninstalled the aircraft and reinstalled it. Again, no difference there either =/
  12. Sim stutters every second

    I have to leave it off. I was one of the ones affected by the laggy displays, so I haven't turned it on except to see if it helped this issue, which it does not seem to help.
  13. Sim stutters every second

    I saw the email about the support system issues, so figured I'd bump this just in case.
  14. Sim stutters every second

    Hope you guys are having a good new year so far! I've been having an issue since the laggy displays were fixed. With the 717 loaded, the whole sim will microstutter every second. It's very predictable and consistent. I've loaded other aircraft and they don't have the one-second-stuttering issue. I've linked the video below to illustrate what's happening. I don't have anything else except FS Flight Keeper running (it happens without it as well), ASN isn't running so no clouds to speak of. Obviously the aircraft is completely shut down so there probably isn't anything in the aircraft systems-wise that's running. It's the default Cold & Dark setting from the tablet, except I've got the tablets put away. My system specs are pretty modest: Core i7-2600k OC'd to 4.2 GHz 16 GB DDR3 RAM Nvidia GTX 770 2 GB Let me know what other info you'd like provided and I'll get it ASAP. Thanks!
  15. Completely unflyable due to low fps

    Just open the Addon Manager and it should automatically download and install any updates it finds.
