  1. Bert, thanks - and you're right - I should have added a links page... Max
  2. Hi all, it's up and running: FSZwever.nl and I can't wait for your comments... Max.
  3. Hi, I've decided to put the website back on: FSZwever The URL has changed from fszwever.com to fszwever.nl - I always wanted a .nl extension... It's still under construction but I needed the space to store my files. Please note it's only FSX from now on. And the downloads are just dummies to check if it's working - real files will be available later on. More later... Max.
  4. Got it - 60 (even a little better) - wonderful... Good idea, thanks. Perhaps we can synchronize some watches... Max.
  5. no, it crashed my polar gauge, and the gauge crashed FSX - and it took the usual 'couple of hours' to locate it... oh well, it's all part of the fun. Max. btw - how do I setup for a best L/D of 60 ? I'm reaching only 50.2... (with water ballast and no flaps)
  6. There's a - small - error in the aircraft.cfg: station_load.0=165, 5.0, 0, 0, 0.0 // this line has 5 entries where there should be only 4 station_load.1=150, 2.0, 0, 0, 0.0 // please remove the last entry - 0.0 //station_load.2=10, 3.0, 0, 0, 0.0 // so the next 2 lines will work... station_name.0=Pilot station_name.1=Rear Passagier //station_name.2=Equipment Max.
  7. Ian and Wolfgang, thanks for a wonderful plane - compliments to both of you - great jobs. Max.
  8. Hi, the updated CAI set is working, the polar gauges are working, the waypoints editor is running, the polar viewer too... All that's left to do is writing some user's guides - and that's the worst part by far... Cheers, Max.
  9. Hi Ian, thanks for the information and all the info on your website - it's a great help. Cheers, Max.
  10. Thanks, that's a very good idea - I'll look into it. Max.
  11. Hi, here's a little progress report - so far I've got: updated Grob Astir CS flying (still needing some work in the animation dep.)updated CAI-set - with up to 10 tasks.all new gauge set to test fly the polars from the 'virtual' planes.a viewer to study those polars.a waypoints editor - to create the gps-nav.dat file from original CAI formatted *.dat files and to add up to 10 tasks.updated version of AirWrench - it now includes the ballast tanks as used by the default DG-808. and it's all working on the win7 platform. The way things are progressing it might take a month (or a little more) to take the most obvious bugs out. I'm still thinking about doing a new recorder - with a standard IGC format output - so it can be read by the usual (commercial) viewers.. If you might have some wishes regarding all of this, now is the time... Regards, Max.
  12. Jerry just released an update of AirWrench that includes the water ballast tanks - looks really good...
  13. Hi Dave - no, not yet. I haven't yet solved the Win7 problems I've got but I ran into something completely different. To create polars this way planes need to have reasonably correct air files and most of the ones I have (12 in all) don't. Some of the older planes still use the fuel tanks for ballast - that's a lot of re-writing. I downloaded a copy of AirWrench to do something about it only to discover it didn't know anything about water ballast (amongst things) Jerry is looking into that... Cheers, Max.
  14. Perhaps slightly off topic (but not in my case) - what Windows 7 version do I really need ? There's Home, Pro and Ultimate - and how about just upgrades (like the Home family pack) ? And there's a 32-bit and 64-bit version of each... I've to upgrade 3 machines (2 for me - 1 for the wife (or even 6 - counting the childern and the dog) so clean installs could be rather expensive... At the moment the machines are running on Vista (1x) XP (4x) or 2000 (1x) - if I buy upgrades I only have to replace the 2000 first. Any advise ? Max.
  15. On another forum there was a suggestion it might be a matter of missing VC++ 2010 libraries. For those of you brave enough to try - here's a link It would a great help... Cheers, Max.
  16. Ok, I'm gonna get me a copy of Win 7 and take a look myself... Cheers.
  17. Okay Bert, but it was running on Scott's set as the debug error shows - I don't think it gives an error while NOT running... Back to the drawing board... Cheers, Max.
  18. Thanks guys, the score is 2 - 2. What I don't understand is that both sets use the same code and where the fs9 set don't give any problems at all the fsx set has difficulties. Somehow I'm under the impression the last build is less stable but now I'm not so sure. Scott's debug error is just a program error and quite easy to solve. I would like to have Ian's problems solved before I continue... The only way I could make the gauges disappear on Windows XP was by removing the SOARrec.dll from it's folder. Cheers, Max.
  19. Hi, I could do with a little help right now... I decided to try and update the Caiset for FSX. So I dug out the old source code and run it through the compiler. And mr-fs9-caiset.gau changed to mr-fsx-caiset.dll - here's a download link: http://www.xs4all.nl...-fsx-caiset.dll You'll need a new font too: http://www.xs4all.nl...wnloads/LCD.TTF . Please download and install. Put the .dll into the FSX \ Gauges folder and please use Wofgang's LS8-18 to test it. Change the entries in the panel.cfg from gauge09=mr-fs9-caiset!lnav, 441,484,139,142 gauge10=mr-fs9-caiset!gpsnav, 456,353,116,117 gauge11=mr-fs9-caiset!caf, 346,369,100 to gauge09=mr-fsx-caiset!lnav, 441,484,139,142 gauge10=mr-fsx-caiset!gpsnav, 456,353,116,117 gauge11=mr-fsx-caiset!caf, 346,369,100 like this. The problem: it's reported the gauges won't show up on Win 7 and I need some confirmation. As I still run Windows XP and don't have access to a Win 7 PC I'm up the creek. Cheers, Max. btw: those without Win7 are welcome to the update too. M.
  20. Thanks for showing me. I loaded the file in Excel too and it showed I was flying too fast. A little less elevator took care of that... Cheers.
  21. So it could be something like this... Changing the interval at the higher speed end of the scale won't reduce the time needed so I'll let stay as it is. Can you explain the two (or rather three) little peaks at the end of the scale on your graph ? Where the lift makes a jump. Cheers, Max
  22. Hi Ian, I guess you mean something like this... Correct me if I'm wrong. Cheers, Max.
  23. Yes, they are - and it works ok for what I want. I also use them for the LNAV. I can give you a readout of the complete range from almost stall speed up to 250 km/h. Incidence alpha is no problem too. What interval do you need ? Are 5 km/h steps sufficient ? Cheers, Max.
  24. Hi Dave, thanks a lot - those buttons at the bottom are translated into something I didn't understand - must be my age...
