  1. I see. Thank you. Why could they just not add the option to the long press menu? Edit - it just crashes again changing the controller profile. Bit annoying.
  2. It’s an S. Its quite funny because this time I thought “‘I bet this crashes” Key maps have crashed many programs in the past. DCS world for one but Cubase is notorious for it.
  3. Doesn’t that just give you the option to shut it down (rest mode) and or Reboot?
  4. Had this bug multiple times now. Resuming from stand-by mode on the Xbox, go into the game and the controls don’t work properly. Check the controls and it’s switched them all to default. Change the control back to my preset and I get a hard crash to the dashboard. To be honest the stand-by mode has been nothing but painful on this Xbox. I hate the fact you have to dig into the settings to do a full shut down so for now I’ll just put it on energy saving.
  5. My controller keyboard turned up. it came with a little dongle and has clicky buttons NOT the spongy rubber things I have on my PS4 one. seems really responsive. I also got my brand new Logitech MX Master 3 paired to a dongle it came with (‘on Mac) and it now works on Xbox. Time to map the controls…. I’m thinking maybe I’ll use the numbers for 10%-20%-30% etc… throttle. It has a shift key I could then use for mixture in the same way I guess. It doesn’t have any CTRL or ALT key though.
  6. Anyone tried the Bush Trips? I briefly tried one a few days ago but got distracted and just started doing stupid stuff. So last night I tried a different one and it spawns me inside a bush so I die on take off. I tried the Finland one and go to the first runway and stupidly rolled plane. I thought I’ll try that again tomorrow…. Now it’s spawning me in the middle of the sea and I die after 3 seconds. They is broke!
  7. Literally Thomas the tank engine of airplanes.
  8. Does anyone k ow what’s going on with the controls ? some of them just plain don’t work. I have an analogue zoom set to LB+ Right stick up and down. If I want LB + Left stick to do the moving around cockpit thing it just doesn’t work. LB + Y I want as instrument view and then dpad to switch between the instrument views….doesn’t work.
  9. Did the first lot again last night and managed to get A on all of them apart from the last one where there is a turn from North to South and climb to 6,000. I swear to fecking god I had a perfectly awesome flight worthy of a low A but it was barely a B. Not sure what you else you expect me to do flight simulator ! What is it you want from me! I’m on a god damn controller!
  10. Finders island in between Australia and New Zealand…..bit bloody windy. I landed sideways.
  11. I made this. Might help people plan a button map These are the default controls. There’s a lot of space available to map stuff which is cool. Also there is an option in General Options>‘camera> Freelook Momentum which adjusts the amount of travel on the camera stick which is great because no I don’t over shoot the controls in the cockpit when zoomed in. Toggle Drone Camera to LB + Select View button makes sense but doesn’t work. It’s going to be like programming this is…
  12. I have a Logitech MX and just bought a spanking new Logitech MX Master 3 which comes with a dongle but can do Bluetooth unlike my original Master. I couldn’t get the Bluetooth mouse….actually I can’t get anything Bluetooth to work on the Xbox. I don’t think the Xbox even has Bluetooth? Nothing mentioned about it in the system menus at least. So I plugged in my dongle while I had the game running and it recognised it but apparently you have to have paired my particular dongle and mouse together while on a computer or Mac at least once for it to work.
  13. Click the left stick and select ATC from the top. By the way you can in the flight planner assign yourself a call sign and the text to speech will read it out on radio chatter Basically it’s multiple choice question and answering and quite intuitive. The hardest thing is they will tell you to go here and there and you’ll have no idea what end of the runway or what gate you need without really looking hard. Most of it is quite procedural. Worth noting they kept telling me to taxi to the runway, only till I crossed the threshold of the (correct for a change) runway would the clearance for take off options present themselves.
  14. Phew. 2 hours 11 minutes and I’m at St Mary’s in the Isles of Scilly. managed to manually land. It really helps to know the orientation of the runway before you exit the flight planner and go on your journey. I also managed to taxi over to the fuel place and request a fuel truck which then came out and gave me some juice. It’s a shame there’s so much cloud cover today but at least the landing section was clear. I’m playing this is full on sim mode with absolutely everything turned off like waypoints and Auto this that , apart from AI radio communications which are handy. Managed to unlock the Look Ma No Hands! And Wheels Up Wheels Down achievements.
  15. Thinking about one of these. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Controller-Keyboard-Wireless-Bluetooth-Receiver/dp/B094MSB7FX/ref=asc_df_B094MSB7FX?tag=bingshoppinga-21&linkCode=df0&hvadid=79920843863898&hvnetw=o&hvqmt=e&hvbmt=be&hvdev=c&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=&hvtargid=pla-4583520396628015&psc=1 I have one already that fits a PS4 controller. I might try and pair it up to see how it goes. Mine has rubber keys which aren’t too great ,maybe this would be better
