Re: Antonov An-2 Repaints

I am looking for an An 2 registered in the Ukraine. Is there any repaint available? I did a Lithuanian one: [url]http://aussiex.org/forum/index.php?/files/file/3835-sibwings-antonov-an2-ly-akh/[url] a while back - which I enjoyed doing (the Sibwings An-2 is a fantastic model). Is there a specific a...

Re: Help with sound problem please

Hi Howard (it's me again!) - you wouldn't by any chance have one of the side windows open? That's definitely one of the sounds that loops - and you hear it even in outside views.

It caught me out yesterday (I'd forgotten all about it) ... I thought the bearings on the fuel pump had gone :lol:.

Yep - that's what I suspect. Not a huge problem though!

Looking forward to the next SLX!

Any patches/updates on the way?

I'm still enjoying the An-2 *immensely*, but was wondering if there are any updates on the way? It seems awfully quiet! Not that I think there's anything tremendously important that needs patching - just whether any *additional* features that may be being worked on. It's still one of my absolute fav...

Looks to me like it's a "UIautomationcore.dll" problem. See here:http://forums.flightsimlabs.com/index.p ... -crashing/

Re: found a way to do "cold & dark" mode without hassle

Just to say *thank you* for the pointer to "SimLauncher". It's a great little utility! A note for newbies like me: you'll have difficulty finding the new v9.2. The latest (via the links) is v7.2 ... but it will update itself to 9.2 after install! I also couldn't get to save the R.H. red knob (fuel c...

Thanks for that, Dave - at least it's not something I'm doing wrong then!

Morse beep on the ADF

The volume control on the ADF radio doesn't appear to work. Is there a way of silencing the morse beep when tuned into an ADF signal? Or is it like that in RL?

I hope something appears in an update as well. Programming FSUIPC is not for the faint hearted (!).

Cold & Dark request

This isn't exactly earth-shattering ... but .... I get a real kick out of doing a full C & D start - and have an FSX An-2 flight saved in a totally dark state for that purpose. Everything is remembered fine *except* for the red fuel cut-off lever (to the right of the green carb heat lever) - which a...

Re: Antonov An-2 Repaints

Here's my version of LY-AKH - the only (I think) An-2 in New Zealand. This aircraft was flown from Lithuania to NZ in an epic flight by Neville Cameron. Sadly, no longer flying, it spends its days at the Wanaka Museum. http://s20.postimg.org/kq97nfewt/ly_akh_03_1280.jpg http://s20.postimg.org/4gj1kj...

Easy ;) ... just re-download the an2.exe from Sibwings. Back up any custom repaints and re-install.

Re: Cannot Start Engine!

Still kind of non-consistent behaviour. For the first time I did not switch the electric fuel pump on but used only the hand pump. First attempt with this method and she was running! With electric pump on I have to try several times before she coughs and starts singing. Funny, that - I get the oppo...

Re: Fuel pump and primer shortcuts request

Well, with logging I get an endless stream of ADF 2 ident disable reports. Besides that I get absolutely nothing for the oil cooler doors but I will double check that. That's exactly what I saw. I'm wondering if all those calls are affecting framerates. The calls are made even with the aircraft pow...

Re: Is the Artificial Horizon backwards?

That was a bug in very first release, actually Russian attitude indicator works opposite with all others. We missed it. We fix it quite, tell nobody (same about DEUTSCHE typo btw), so that one who bought and download it first day have wrong one. Hahaha ... that'll teach me to be so quick with my wa...

Re: Fuel pump and primer shortcuts request

I think you need the full version of FSUIPC for programming but to find the correct codes turn on logging then just hit the item in the VC you are trying to find and the log will tell you the command being sent by the object. Thanks Dave - I'll have a play. I've had the paid up version for ages. Th...

Either the horizon line/aircraft datum need to be switched around or simply the aircraft datum is going in the wrong direction.

Nice to know it's not me going mad, :lol:.

ADF volume control not working

I was trying out a few cross-country flights using various ADFs along the way and found that I couldn't turn down the (annoying) morse indent signal. THe rotary knob gets a hot-spot (hand) but doesn't rotate or have any effect. Is this "work in progress"? I'm not being negative (I *love it* !!!) ......
