DA40-NGX Improvement Mod (SU7, v0.8.5, Nov 21)

Yeah I think the problem is the AP is using a different baro setting than the PFD altimeter. The SimConnect baro setting is changing the one the AP uses, and not the PFD. Maybe the AP is using the baro setting from the standby altimeter? Try keeping both in synch and see if the problem persists.

This has been asked before in this thread (you can use the search function, tick"search this topic" and search for “baro”).

yeah it uses the standby altimeter, no idea how to fix this.

Just remember to set both.

HI Chap…loving this improvement mod. When an ECU A + B failure occours, is there a way to rectify the fault or is it terminal?
regards

its been a long an boring weekend…

hey MrTommy,

Was just wondering about the “Check Mod/Livery” message in the DA40. It’s not letting me do things like check the Pitot, nor does it show anything when turning the engine on. Is this to do with the new update?

Thnx

Can anyone enlighten me what the message “FADEC Check FAQ” displayed in the G1000 alerts means? I read about the FADEC, I checked the FAQ but I still don’t get what the issue is. The FADEC seems to do the job described in the PDF (I can see the RPM going up and down when I change the throttle position) and everything seems to be as it should, but the message gives me the feeling that I am missing something. I don’t have any of the mods that are listed in the FAQ as not being compatible.

I am using DA40-NGX v0.7.6 and the G1000 mod v0.3.7 with Sim Update 4, in case it matters…

Edited: So I’ve no idea what went on; on like the 5th or 6th start of a new flight the FADEC caution message has disappeared, so whatever it was, I’m probably good?

When you read the FAQ, what did it say regarding warnings or limitations with the FADEC?

If you were getting a FADEC error message, you were probably in violation of something in the FAQ

Nothing, that’s why I asked.

" 1. FADEC

The FADEC controls manifold pressure, injected fuel quantity and propeller speed according to the desired engine power preselected with the power lever. The RPM will follow the RPM set curve. (Further details in the included PDF)"

Where does it say anything about limitations? Are we talking about the same FAQ?

Throttle lever is not moving and Prop RPM stays at 2150RPM. (FADEC CAS message)

FADEC Code hasn’t loaded in. Check the Incompatible mod list.

Confirmed: Incompatible mod/plugins:

Uwajimaya’s lighting mod: Its included and improved
Kinetic assist: delete simconnect.cfg in your “my documents” folder.

Thanks for getting back to me - the odd thing was, as I tried to mention: I had that message in the G1000 display, but I could move the throttle lever and the load and RPM would both change just fine. I cannot reproduce it any longer, it was just very confusing to me as I couldn’t find anything wrong. I also haven’t changed any of my plugins, but as it’s okay now there’s no need to waste any more thoughts on this.

Thanks for this nice plugin, I really like the more realistic feeling it provides!

Hi @MrTommymxr ,

You might want to integrate this fixes for your mod, since the 500 feet, Minimum callout and 1000 feet to go alerts are missing on the DA40 :frowning:

That’s something that has been mentioned since, well, the game released.
The DA40 sound pack simply does not have those sound files included and I cant really do much about that sadly.

I managed to enable the 1000 to go and the minimums… the TAWS system check ok and 500 does not work, so its the soundpack :frowning:

The 1000 togo tone?
hm, could you paste the code. ill put that into the next version.

I am experiencing problems with the Mod and IVAO. When I start the IVAO software (Altitude Software 1.10.4b) the Garmin 1000 seems frozen. So I tried to connect it after the engine is on and everything is working, and it looks like it’s not tracking in the IVAO system (the aircraft doesn’t move in the tracker nor webeye). I don’t know if the problem is related with this Mod or with the G1000 Mod.

Rgrds

Discovered this after grabbing your excellent DA62X mod. Thanks for your hard work!

Do you plan to make this a separate aircraft with the next update, as you did with the DA62? I definitely like that approach best.
