I am having trouble with the FMS as well. I put in a flight plan, check for discontinuity, execute and verify all waypoints are in correctly and in the right order.
In this example I was flying out of YYZ and hit direct to kepta and exec and some random waypoint shows up nothing to do with my flight plan. I manually flew the aircraft until past kepta and then hit direct to bmpah and then the flight plan broke still with the same random waypoint but now a disconnect after bmpah but nothing wrong in the FMS as far as waypoints.
Tried on a few other airports and the same thing. In this example I loaded the flight plan manually but have also tried loading a company route generated by simbrief and still the same thing.
any help would be appreciated
Have you already tried the steps here? https://flightsimulator.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/360015999539-Stuck-on-the-blue-bar-TBM-loading-screen-loading-stops
If you haven't, I'd recommend giving them a try since it generally covers most startup issues. In terms of the steps you took to reinstall, they're just fine and shouldn't cause any issues.
Same problem here. I observed on the outside view the two gauges who show the percentige of thrust beeing given to the aircraft. When I throttle at max the thrust goes back to 75%. When I take the throttle on my joystick down to zero (idle) the thrust in the gauges of the outsideview show that it remains on 51%. So something forces the throttle to be somewhere else than on the joystick. I tried to calibrate my joystick (Saitek Cyborg) inside the aircraft on the panel and noticed that when the calibrate menu window is open and you leave it open and go back to outside view the thrust works 1:1 with the joystick and the aircraft so Im able to hit 100% thrust or decrease the throttle to 0%. As soon as I close the calibration window on the sidepanel in the aircraft the problem persists again.
I hope this infos can help the defs.
