  1. Ant's Airplanes Trojan T28A public beta

    The option to have the pilot visible is mostly if you decide to fly from the rear seat in the Dual cockpit version (note that the Solo and Attack version, while you can sit in the rear seat, don't have working switches in the rear). You can then have the pilot in the front seat blocking your view just like in real life. In case you haven't found it yet there is a hidden click spot in both cockpits that switch you from front to rear. It is in the top left of each panel just above and to the left of the gauge in that position.

    Thanks Trev. I had to turn off privacy badger as it was blocking the text editing option for the signature. T28A added to the Aussiex library. http://aussiex.org/forum/index.php?/files/file/4514-ants-airplanes-t-28a-trojan/
  3. Ant's Airplanes Trojan T28A public beta

    TROJAN T28A NOW AVAILABLE Thanks to everyone who helped with the testing I have just uploaded the completed T28A which can be downloaded from this page (150MB in size): http://www.antsairplanes.com/trojan.html I have also uploaded the T28B/C and T28D version 3.00 installers for the retailers to update their files. THIS WILL TAKE SOME TIME so don't expect the B/C and D to be available right now. I don't know how long it will take for the retailers to update their files, I can't control that, plus some of them are probably asleep at the moment as they are on the other side of the world. I could be tomorrow, it could be next week. The best thing to do is sign up to receive update notifications if your retailer allows this as the retailer will then email you when it's ready. The new installers for B/C and D will be 349MB and 225MB respectively. While waiting for the update to filter through why not fly the A model instead? If you haven't got the B/C or D yet then they have new lower prices ($14.95 AUD) I will update the files for the T28A on the aussiex and sim-outhouse sites later today or maybe tomorrow. Next up for me is updating the Drifter for P3Dv4. After a rest. BTW, does anyone know how I can change my signature in the forum? I've been through all the options I think I can't find the right one.

    Hi Jorge I've made a patch (it's less than 1mb size) which should help diagnose the problem. www.antsairplanes.com/downloads/AntsT28AV303patch.zip Open Animation Manager Select Animations tab and go to the second page At the bottom of that page set the debug mode to 44 Open the main panel (shift+1) On the far right there are eight CTEMP parameters The CTEMP7 parameter will show what the last rudder/elevator input type was. This is usually 1 for me CTEMP8 parameter will show the value of that input. Operate the rudder pedals to see what you normally get for CTEMP7 and CTEMP8. Wait to see what happens when you get a rudder hard right. Make a note of CTEMP7 and CTEMP8 and then change the debug mode to 43 and note all the CTEMP parameters and then let me know what they are. CTEMP1 and CTEMP3 in debug mode 43 will tell me if the aircraft thinks it is spinning (these should be 0 in normal flight, 1 when spinning)
  5. Ant's Airplanes Trojan T28A public beta

    Here is the latest update for a the A model beta. Same as before, download is called V300 but the installer inside the zip is V302. http://www.antsairplanes.com/downloads/AntsT28AV300BETA.zip Changes made: Fixed oil refill in maintenance Fixed other issues with maintenance including oil consumption rate Made changes to the rudder processing to hopefully prevent hard rudder at unexpected times Made changes to the wheel chocks to only allow them to be applied when stopped (hopefully will fix aircraft being frozen in place) Made changes to model for nose wheel steering (I've found that P3D sometimes doesn't get the suspension working properly when you first land which was causing an issue with the animation of the nose wheel steering) Fixed issues with the left/right push aircraft commands and made the whole system more robust I think this version also changed the taxiing push, you shouldn't need as much rpm to start rolling, about 1200rpm should get you moving Improved attitude indicator power behaviour. If you cut off inverter power the attitude indicator flag should come on - remember the AI needs inverter power to operate. David, the B/C/D models are not ready for release yet. I am still working on ironing the bugs out of the A model at the moment which is why I am doing this public beta, to get the public to help find the bugs that I miss. Only when the A model is working properly will I release the B,C and D models. I should point out that the main C++ gauge used in the A model is identical to the B,C and D models as well so if the A model works then the B,C and D should work properly too.

    Yes Jorge, I saw the oil temp and pressure. That's what happens when you don't have enough oil, the temperature goes up and when temperature goes up the pressure goes up. I'm working on another update which should be ready tomorrow (Friday) as I don't think I paid enough attention to the Maintenance section. There's a few other things too which I had to work on like the aircraft push.
  7. Ant's Airplanes Trojan T28A public beta

    Forgot to mention, the aircraft will also freeze if the wheel chocks are in place. Again, the T28 should clear the wheel chocks if it is in the air but if you are taxiing and turn on the wheel chocks it will freeze the aircraft when you stop.
  8. Ant's Airplanes Trojan T28A public beta

    Hi Jorge Seems like I haven't set the right values to refill the oil level. Off by a factor of 10 it seems. The rudder kick is probably because the plane thinks it's in a spin. I will check this to see what's happening. The no taxi is probably related to aircraft freeze I do. This is done when on the ground and parking brakes are on. In theory, applying the brakes should be enough to unfreeze the aircraft. I will look at this as well.
  9. Ant's Airplanes Trojan T28A public beta

    Hi All I've just updated the beta. It is available for download from the same place: www.antsairplanes.com/downloads/AntsT28AV300BETA.zip The installer name in the zip will be AntsT28AV301BETA though. The changes are: Added "Mute sound on lost focus" option in the sounds page. This works for the custom sounds in FSX and P3D. Set this to match your setting in the P3D sounds options. As some sounds are still using the default sound system (ie wind sounds, gear touchdown) then you may not get all sounds still being heard if you don't have the FSX window in focus. Fixed issues with the engine starter button causing hanging sounds and other problems Fixed issue with the rockets giving a little push to the aircraft when launched under some circumstances Fixed issue with the VC fire buttons on the joystick not working. Pressing any of these buttons will now act as fire button. I'm just going to spend the next week or so fully checking everything over making sure stuff gets all installed to the proper locations etc and if everything is OK I can release the T28B/C and T28D updates. They all use the exact same gauge C++ so that makes development rather easier. All I have to do is run the installer programs the make the installers for the new versions.

    Hi David I tried extending the mouse zone for the flaps handle a bit but there is a lot of stuff down there (the A model doesn't even have the supercharger HI/LOW handle). 1950's aircraft aren't known for their ergonomics and indeed the flaps handle can be hidden by the throttle. After many crashes to desktop I've added an option to the sounds settings to mute the sound on lost focus. It wasn't as complicated as I thought it would be but I was needlessly making it complicated by stopping directsound and restarting it which was causing crashes, turns out the function to read the sound files handled this situation just fine by itself with very little changes. This works in FSX as well as P3D and can be changed on the fly, it does cause a little sound dropout but that can't be helped. Like I said though I can't read this information from the what the user has set in P3D so the user must set this to match whatever they have in P3D. I made a note of that in the manual. I've also made a few changes to the starter switch, there were certain situations causing issues with sounds and getting the starter switch out of sequence. I'll probably upload an updated T28A beta tomorrow. I'm just compiling the installers now.
  11. Ant's Airplanes Trojan T28A public beta

    I've had a look at this. As far as I can see there is no way for me to know if the "Mute sound on lost focus" option is readable by me (ie it is not available as a variable that any gauge I make can be read). So while I could, theoretically at least, set the sound system up to continue playing when the window has lost focus (by default it mutes when lost focus) it seems I can't read how the user has set that option in P3D so I'd need to add a separate function to my sound setup to do this. If the Winjeel is continuing to play sounds it's possible that you have set either the internal or external sounds of the Winjeel to use the default sound system? I've checked the Winjeel myself and it behaved like the T28 and it continued muting the sound even with "Mute sound on lost focus" unticked on my system. I think I will just add a note in the user manual about the mute sound on lost focus function. Or if I'm feeling lucky I might add the option in my sound setup. It was so much easier when you only had to develop for one version of FSX.
  12. Ant's Airplanes Trojan T28A public beta

    Thanks Jorge. I didn't know about that option in P3D. I will check it out and see what's what. The rumble sound is most likely wind noise, this is still handled by the flight sim sound system. - Andrew, simmarket is usually the quickest to release the updates. They usually do it within a day (assuming it's a work day).
  13. Ant's Airplanes Trojan T28A public beta

    That's interesting Jorge. Like I said, the sound should mute when P3D is not the active window. It's something I have no control over as Windows does this automatically. So I wouldn't expect the Winjeel to keep the sound playing at all especially as it uses the same code as the T28 and it's not something I have heard of happening.
  14. Ant's Airplanes Trojan T28A public beta

    Do you mean if the P3D program window is no longer the active window? It will mute the sound (not something that I do, that's just the way directsound works) and the Winjeel does the same as well.
  15. Ant's Airplanes Trojan T28A public beta

    This is for the T28A model. It is has always been free to all users although it is encouraged that you donate to aussiex or sim-outhouse if you enjoy using the T28A. The T28B/C and T28D are payware (and still will be). They will soon incorporate the same changes as those in the T28A. The V3.00 update will be free to all existing users of the T28B/C and T28D.
