In this release, FDS CDU's will no longer require FDS-CDU software. ProSim CDU will no longer accept input from the FDS-CDU software and will instead communicate directly with the CDU. FDS MCP's are also supported natively. To enable FDS native support for MCP's, go to the "Drivers" tab of the ProSim737 system configuration screen, click "Advanced" next to "FDS Hardware support" and enable support for FDS G3 MCP/EFIS. Do not forget to display the FDS-Glare software. Other natively supported FDS hardware in this release: Multi COM panel, Generic radio and XPDR For non motorized throttles, we've added an option to show the current physical position of the throttles on the upper EICAS. This will aid in positioning the physical throttles correctly prior to disengaging the autothrottle. The option can be enabled in the instructor station, on the Cockpit Setup menu and you can find it under the Display tab as "Show manual throttle position in EICAS". We've added support for Active Sky Next. To enable Active Sky Next integration, you will need to make sure that FSUIPC writes its radar data in a file called 'radar.bin' in the ProSim737.exe folder. This is done by adding the following parameter to the [General] section of fsuipc4.ini: ASNwxRadarPath=<path of prosim737.exe>\radar.bin We have added the Integrated Approach Navigation option (IAN), which allows you fly any precision or non precision approach using the same methodology. The option also enables the Navigation Performance Scales in the PFD, which show you lateral and vertical deviation from the path as well as RNP and ANP values (Required and Actual Navigation Performance). The option is not enabled by default and can be found in the instructor station in the Cockpit Setup menu. October 6 2014 Release version 1.38 ==================================== - Added reverse trim wheel option for FSC throttles - Reworked ISIS and added switch inputs.

We are migrating ProSim737 Display to allow user interaction with onscreen instruments and for this to work, we need mouse interaction. In previous releases, all mouse interaction was used to move screens around in ProSim737 Display. Since 1.38, ProSim737 Display will have two operation modes that differ in the way the mouse is handled: - Normal operation mode This mode is the default operation mode. All mouse interaction controls the onscreen instruments. No resizing or moving of screens is possible. - Setup mode This mode uses the mouse for manipulating the screen positions. This is how ProSim737 Display used to work by default. The whole background of ProSim737 Display will now be blue when you ae in Setup mode. This allows you to better view the workarea of the ProSim737 Display instance in case you have it span multiple area behind your MIP. Saving of the display configuration is no longer done when exiting ProSim737 Display. Instead, ProSim737 Display will save its configuration when you move it from setup mode to normal operation mode. When you stay in setup mode, ProSim737 Display will also save the configuration when exiting the application. ProSim737 System: Scenery extraction now uses the scenery.cfg file. In previous releases, all *.bgl files where scanned that where in any subfolders of path that was specified in the database dialog window. In this release, ProSim737 will try to locate the scenery.cfg file and it will use this file to find any path configured there. This will allow ProSim737 to find files on multiple disks.

The autopilot will use a lower rollrate, which is much more realistic. The mathematics of the bank calculations have been significantly improved to allow better track to track intercepts. These changes caused lots of modifications in all areas of the autopilot like intercepts, holdings, etc. More improvements in the spherical trigonometry math of the FMS allows more reliable LNAV and intersection calculations. A lot of work has been done on X-Plane integration. We are currently focusing on having correct autopilot operation and basic functionality. In the current state, regular flight with lnav/vnav/autolands should be working. There are still a lot of subsystems (weather/repositioning/TCAS) that are not yet working with X-Plane. More focus on X-Plane is planned this year. March 25 2014 Release version 1.35 ====================================== !

The weather system is located in the new instructor station. The weather engine of FSX and Prepar3d are based on METAR reports and since this is also a widely accepted weather format, ProSim737 will also be based on these reports. The new ProSim737 weather system allows you to create METAR reports for global weather or for station based weather. Identically to positions, you can store weather presets in slots and call them up quickly. Please note that: - There are still various bugs in the METAR processing of FSX/prepar3d. - Not all weather functions may work. We are investigating how to improve this. - More weather feature will appear in other parts of the IOS. - METAR weather processing requires simconnect, so it is only available on FSX and prepar3d at the moment.

First of all, all databaserelated files are now moved to the "Database" folder under the main ProSim737 folder. This is done automatically when you start this release. The new Database folder stores everything, so you can easily copy it to a remote machine. Also, we are restructuring the position of elements in the configuration screen. * Old approach: The configuration screen consists of tabs. One tab for every type of element. All switches are under switches, all indicators under indicators. * New approach: We are still grouping items per item type, but we keep related items together. A rotary encoder may have several switch inputs that can be used. These will now appear in the "Encoders" tab next to the encoder. Also, addon sounds have switches for controlling the sound. These will now also appear in the Sounds tab. We are also adding a new way to configure rotary encoders. Rotary encoders need fast hardware access and are often handled internally by IO cards. For example, bodnar cards offer the option to handle encoders internally and convert them to pulse up/pulse down inputs. ProSim now allows you to configure these pulse up/pulse down inputs instead of the rotary encoder itself. All additional switches for configuring the encoders are now in the "Encoders" tab of the configuration screen. Always choose one and only one way to configure your encoder. Either choose direct encoder support by configuring the encoder, OR use pulse up/pulse down inputs, OR use momentary up/momentary down switches (if applicable) January 18 2013 Release version 1.23 ===================================== - Fixed a crash when bleedair is off above 7000 feet - ProSim Panel pedestal radio's blank when no power available - ILS data no longer shown in lower right corners of ND - Added flap load relief - F/D operation is now independant during takeoff and go around - Added rotary acceleration for FDS G3 MCP - Digital chronometer blanks when no power available - Added option to ProSim CDU to change default font size - Added support for Flight Illusion dual needle flap gauge January 10 2013 Release version 1.22 ===================================== - N1 command arcs not visible when engine is not running - Using the CONTROL PANEL overhead switch will now also copy soft EFIS modes - AC source switches won't accept a source that has no power - Fixed missing dashed heading line in MAP CTR mode - No boxes drawn around PFD FMA modes that become empty - PFD FMA text 'FD' only shows on the side that has the F/D turned on - Decreased F/D roll bar movement speed - Improved LNAV active track interception - Refined LNAV tracking - Autothrottle ARM mode now keeps N1's in sync - Added automatic download of terrain data - Fixed ProSim Display crashing with detailed terrain - Fixed early termination of DME arcs - Added gear warning horn - Added option for 24k or 26k engines in Cockpit Setup tab of instructor station - Improved N1 takeoff and climb calculations - Fixed ProSim CDU complaining about FDS driver not being registered - Fixed FDS driver installer not installing CDU driver - Fixed FDS driver only accessing a single CDU December 20 2012 Release version 1.21 ====================================== - 140 and 160 added as calibration point to standby speed and barberpole - Allowed DELETE on ACARS page items - SINGLE CH now takes 10 seconds to become CMD after descending below 1500 feet RA - Fixed COM radio rotaries should move in frequency steps of 0.025 instead of 0.05 - Approach flap markers now show current flap setting + previous flap setting - Flap markers are now shown based on the flap handle position and not the actual flap position - EGT startup table updated - Fixed XPDR to have 4 encoder inputs - PoKeys 7 segment displays now show a numerical output of -1 as a blank display - Fixed "ENTER IRS POSITION" not showing in CDU when IRS ALIGN light is flashing - Fixed an issue where VNAV passed an MCP altitude constraint when the MCP altitude was changed during level off - Increased throttle retard speed to make sure it is at idle at touchdown - Improved database creation process - Changed stick shaker test logic - Fixed an issue with IRS alignment duration - Added support for trim indicator in newer Cockpit Sonic throttles - Improved Cockpit Sonic throttle behavior - Added support for Cockpit Sonic throttle trim indicator and backlight - Improved response time of flight alt/land alt numerical outputs - Added gate "Pressurisation display dashed out" - Added gate "Pressurisation display power" - Added gate "Emergency exit lights" - Electric panel does not show Amps for STDY PWR, BAT BUS or GRD PWR positions - "Braking" gate is now only on when brake is active and groundspeed > 1 - Refuelling fields in CDU are now copyable - Fixed FMS calculating wrong waypoint when using direct-to function to VOR based waypoints - Transponder state "Alt rptg off" no longer switches transponder to active in IVAO clients - Gear extention speed changed from 235 to 270 kts - Manual N1 setting is now limited between 70% and 100% - Fixed a bug that caused the ProSim Display connection to fail repeatedly - Fixed no DME shown for localiser only stations November 22 2012 Release version 1.20 ====================================== - Added IRS keypad - Added outputs for IRS display dots - reworked IRS display in aft overhead in ProSim Panel - Yaw damper unavailable when IRS switch is not in normal position and autopilot is CMD - Added VHF NAV switch - Fixed an issue where HSI bar was displayed even though VOR signal was not received - Added a latch variant of the EEC alternate switch - Added a latch variant of the cargo fire panel arm switches - Fixed numbers not showing negative sign with PoKeys 7 segments display extention - Flap gates now usable to control sounds - VNAV now commands flap maneuvre speed during descend when flaps are extended - SPEED RES in CDU DES page now shows flap limit when the flap limit VNAV speed - QRH Vspeeds on TAKEOFF REF page are now first copied to scratchpad - Tuned dash pattern for runway center line and inactive route - Added support for DELETE in RTE page - Fixed LNAV sometimes not capturing DME arc - Renamed the flap gates (outputs) to fix a configuration conflict with the flap switch (inputs).
