  1. Hi my new name is dumbarse, nice to meet you. I did indeed totally miss that, what a numbskull
  2. Have you tried a repair on the avionics at all? It might be worth replacing a few parts one at a time, and see if anything changes. I had a gyro drift problem I couldn't solve until I replaced some parts in the maintenance hanger. Nothing indicated I had a problem, but replacing parts did the trick, so I must have broke something
  3. That's the new feature Marcel was talking about. The very first STEALTH Katana
  4. Congratulations, well done. Nice feature Marcel, must have been pretty hard to implement I'll check it out when I get the chance
  5. Dirty pots in the controllers. I get this from time to time. Snave already said to recalibrate, and check null zones. I agree. Load the Katana, then bring up FSUIPC and go to the calibration tab. Without touching any controllers look at the numbers and see if they are constantly changing? If they are steady, move the controllers and let go again. Are they still steady, or they constantly changing? If they are constantly changing from the beginning, or after you move the controllers, then you DO need to recalibrate and check the null zones. Personally I would tick the "Aircraft Specific" box, recalibrate and check null zones anyway. This will set up a specific calibration for THAT particular aircraft paint. You may need to do this for each paint, or if you are adept at editing config files, check out the FSUIPC manual for how to use the "ShortAircraftNameOK" facilities so the same calibration will work for ALL the Katana paints. You can also move your controllers in "full circles" several times, or for several minutes, to clean the pots. This may help.
  6. That screen shot is the reason I didn't buy that plane, I saw it in a video and it put me right off. I wasn't aware there was a fix for it. Thank you Simon, that is appreciated.
  7. I haven't tried this, as I'm not well enough to fly right now, but my last guess is this: The aircraft tie downs are different in some way depending on where you are at these "Special Locations" Maybe Blocks at one place, Tyres at another, Spikes or anchors maybe?
  8. My brother in-law ran his car for a whole YEAR without the oil touching the dipstick. How he got away with it I'll never know
  9. I got it, if you don't lock it down properly, when you go to fly again next time, it's GONE. Some thieving swine has nicked it, never to be seen again
  10. I was gonna say it was the oil filler panel flapping in the wind if you forget to close it, but Marcel said it's not something that happens in flight. Nice touch by the way. I made the mistake of forgetting to close that flap, and I kept seeing this white thing appearing and disappearing out the corner of my eye. I use track IR so I sat up in my chair and could see the flap going up and down. Very realistic, and a very nice addition Marcel I haven't found anything new yet, but I've only had 2 flights since I updated. Very short ones at that.
  11. I just went to my account too, and indeed the version number is (1.03) in bold just as I've written it there. I'm downloading it, simply because I appear to have MISSED the 1.02 update for some reason. My last version was 1.01. Note to self: Check the forums more often. I can't however find any references to a new version anywhere. I'll keep looking.
  12. Goto the avsim dot com site and search in the file library for a file called "fsxlogrecovery11.zip" It may well solve your file corruption problem. I use it, and it has solved a few problems for me.
  13. I doubt it's FSUIPC to be honest, as he's NOT using it for his yoke. I would strongly encourage the course of action that snave has rather forcefully intimated, read the manual thoroughly. There is a section in there about setup, and is dedicated to the way you set up controllers. I would start there. Because I too use FSUIPC for some controls, and FSX for others, I had to select the right settings on the Katana settings screen for how my controls were set up. Just to be thorough, I would also suggest checking the FSUIPC.ini file for any dual entries, or conflicts and other potential problems. That is assuming you are using the payware version of FSUIPC, and can assign buttons and axis.
  14. Antialaising in a word. There are a few tools out there to make certain adjustments to graphic settings. I personally use NVidia Inspector. You can adjust all that sort of stuff from there. Your card should handle a much higher setting than mine, and that will help get rid of those jaggy edges. I have to suffer with some unfortunately.
