IRIS Jabiru J160/J170 Discussion Thread

Already published two days ago in Jabiru J160/J170 Changelog – IRIS Simulations

Yeah, can we please get rid of the Jabiru splash screens for every flight regardless of the aircraft? Many thanks in advance.

Great. Thanks.

Yeah. I’m not sure who thought it was a great idea to brand every loading screen in the sim. I can promise it isn’t.

@IRISFLTSIM I appreciate that you guys are proud of the aircraft, but it’s really invasive. :thinking:

It also does not scale properly so with my 1920x1200 screen a few letters are cut off

The workaround is to delete the file
\iris-aircraft-jab\Missions\Common\LOADING\FreeFlight\LOADING_FREEFLIGHT.jpg
and the corresponding entry in the layout.json file

Hi all! I want to post here about a new rule regarding 3rd Party add-on support:
3rd Party Add-on Category Reminder - Community / News and Announcements - Microsoft Flight Simulator Forums

From this post forward, please contact the vendor directly for support and bug reporting. You are free to discuss the mod. Thank you!

Hi, are users allowed to discuss common bugs and workarounds?

Yes, you may do that.

Thanks! (added padding because I can’t post just “Thanks!” because it’s less than 10 characters for some reason)

I would say the fact that MS will not allow support discussion and are sending users to the developers website is a very very strong hint that MS actually prefer people buy direct from Iris and not the marketplace.

Among other things, because I purchased my copy of the Jabiru on the Iris website rather than the marketplace, I already have the v4 update (which will likely be weeks before it makes it to marketplace purchasers).

TLDR - If you need to go direct to the developer for support you might as well buy direct.

Wouldn’t MS prefer that you buy from the marketplace so they get a cut?

Keep posts on topic. Thank you.

I would have thought discussion of where to buy the Jabiru and the relative benefits of purchase direct from Iris (or Orbx) versus marketplace is actually on topic (especially with it virtually half price on special at present) - but fair enough.

I’m not sure if I’ve missed something. The Iris site says " * Four custom instrument panels over a variety of aircraft layouts.". What are the four panels referred to?

IIRC they’re selectable through the liveries (but I don’t recall the exact options)

Thanks. I’ve just had a quick look and as far as I can tell you can select the gauge or glass option for either version. Maybe that’s where the four comes from, or maybe I’m still missing something.

I think that may be it, yeah.

Download the latest from the IRIS website, I removed that option. Seemed like a good idea at the time…maybe not in hindsight.
