Cessna 172sp fs2020 and questions

#1 Post by Pat737 »

Hello everyone.

I use air manager for my cessna cockpit.
Everything is going quite well.
But I have a few details that I would like to settle.

I use 3 screens for this cockpit:
1 for fs2020
1 for air manager
1 for little navmap.

Sometimes when I start air manager, it does not go to to the expected screen,
Why and how to fix this problem ?

What are the best instruments for this 172 of fs2020 ?

Because the annunciator and the oat and time is not working properly either ?

Thanks for your help.

The instruments have an X Y position (pixels). If this changes, due to Windows monitor settings, then it can end up at a different position.

If you want to report any instrument problems, then you have to mention the exact name(s), because we have more than a thousand. Also describe exactly what the problem is, and if you're using a default or add-on aircraft.

For some more context, what screen are you expecting to see and what are you actually getting.

Hello,

Thank you for your answers.

Sorry for the translation, because I am French.

My cockpit uses 3 screens:

1 fs 2020 1920*1080
2 little nav maps 1024*768
3 air manager 1680*1050

And in air manager there is another screen called:

Custom screen.

And sometimes air manager opens on this screen.
How to delete it ?

My other problem is to know if I am using the right instruments for my cessna 172 sp cockpit from asobo?

I bought the set of instruments (vers.7) from sim innovation.

On the instruments purchased 2 do not reproduce the information of the cessna 172 sp from asobo.

1) The Cessna 172 - OAT and Time: which does not give the correct time or the correct outside temperature.

2) The Cessna 172 - Annunciators does not give the same information as the 172 sp from asobo.

Is this normal or can this information be changed ?

Cordially.

Pat.

1 - And in air manager there is another screen called:

2 -
  • a - The Cessna 172 - OAT and Time: which does not give the correct time or the correct outside temperature.
  • b - The Cessna 172 - Annunciators does not give the same information as the 172 sp from asobo.
1 - It occurs when positioning the Air Manager panel in a different location than x=0,y=0. May as well occur with left mouse click maintained down by mistake and moving the mouse. So re locate to x=0,y=0 or select the target monitor in the drop-down list :

2 -

a - Agree, the instrument doesn't react following buttons press in both ways between sim and air manager. Values don't follow either
b - The values are not located in the same scheme as in the sim, though all info are present, however air manager is displaying low fuel with a global 17% quantity, as in sim is for 28%. Other value are displayed properly (lighted) accordingly to the sim

Hello,

Thank you for this precise answer.

So I am of course the best possible solution for the cessna 172 sp from asobo.

Do you think there will be an update of these instruments ?

Pat.

1. Gives exactly the same data here. But note that they are not in sync. The Air Manager instrument operates 'stand-alone'.
2. Please let me know what you think is not the same, because here it works fine.

Hmm there's a lot of information everywhere, I'm a bit confused :)

The fuel specs in Air Manager are taken from the Cessna 172SP pilot operating handbook. What you're seeing in the simulator isn't always correct.

I know, it's likely all of us as simmers, would like to see all things synced in both ways for each single aircraft and there come the nightmare as devs ... :roll: :lol:
As the instruments would fit several aircrafts in several sims ...
