    always will it rotate. Getting it to the run setting is a bit of a hassle for me. Seems non responsive to left mouse clicks most of the time. Is there a specific hot zone/spot where to place the hand on my mouse cursor?
    I place it on the center of the knob and left click and nothing.

    Currently almost all switches and knobs only support scroll-wheeling, unlike Rel1.0. This would include MFD brightness knob and APU

    It sounds like you overloaded the engines. You normally NEVER want to put the TCL (thrust control lever/aka throttle) to full 100%. This model simulates engine overload and the engines will become “damaged" and shutdown.
    With engines stated, push your tcl to full, and you will notice th MASTER/ALERT light is illuminated, as well as on the EICAS you will notice that the Ng is near or in the red. When I push up the TCL, ive made it a habit of mine to watch the MASTER/ALERT light when it lights up, after which ill slowly pull back the TCL until it is no longer on.

    Maryadi has implemented this feature in a way where it takes about a minute or so before the engines shutoff from overload. In the REAL Osprey, it takes a mere 3-5 seconds of being in the red before engines are seriously damaged!

    Litltle question : has somebody managed to switch on the rotors blades tips lights?
    The control panel is rear far left side of the overhead panel but it seems that it doesn't work...

    Still having issues with the mouse rotating that APU switch to the ON position. I left click on the APU knob, and it doesn't do anything. I have a mouse with a scroll wheel.

    Edit: Issued solved. I failed to rotate the scroll wheel to make the APU switch rotate - kept pushing on the wheel - no wonder the APU switch wouldn't move.

    As I said before, most knobs only work by using the scroll wheel on your mouse. Left click and dragging does not work on the APU.

    You must hover your mouse over the APU Knob and use the middle scroll wheel (without clicking it in i might add) to turn the knob to the RUN/ENGAGE position.

    Yessir,
    Just in case you weren't aware, there are two switches in the left overhead panel that turn on the blade tip lights.
    Looking backwards towards them, the one on the right, is like the "master switch". Left click that to get it into NORMAL position.
    The switch on the left is a three way switch; TOP-OFF-BOTTOM. By default, this is in the OFF position. Move the switch into either TOP or BOTTOM, depending on what side you want the blade tip lights to show.

    In case somebody still misses it:

    From the FlightManual:

    ""
    3.5 Mouse clickspots.
    Mouse Clickspots in the VC depend on the clickspot type.
    In general:
    - Buttons are operated with a Left Mouse click.
    - Selectors (like: AP AltitudeSelector), multi-position switches (like: APU) and levers (like: Starter levers) are operated with the MouseWheel.
    ""

    Not quite correct ...

    First, since you operate the Nacelles with a Spoiler Axis:
    See Part VIII, item-4 in the FlightManual.

    The SpoilerAxis needs to be properly calibrated.
    Meaning:
    It reaches full range between 0 and 100%.
    - Calibrate the axis first in Windows.
    - In the FSX/P3D menu (Options-Controls) set the Sensitivity of the axis to MAX, and add a small Nullzone if needed.

    To test if it's properly calibrated:
    - Shut down the engines on the ground, and wait until the proprotors have stopped rotating.
    - Observe the value of the nacelles indicator in an MFD (PFD screen, top/left).
    - When moving your SPoilerAxis lever over the full range, the nacelles angle should go from 0 to 97 v.v.
    - If not: the axis is NOT calibrated properly !!


    As to the min. airspeed needed to rotate the nacelles to 0 (APLN mode) in the air:
    That depends if the AutoNacelles button is On or Not (Default: ON)
    See section 6.1.3.1.14 of the FlightManual.
    - When OFF: you can freely set the nacelles to 0 (or any other value) at ANY airspeed (when in the air).

    - When ON ("ACT"): the nacelles are limited within the range specified in the fig. at page 26 of the FM.
    Meaning that:
    oo below 100 Knots airspeed, you cannot command the nacelles to 0 degrees.
    oo above 200 Knots airspeed, the nacelles are forced to 0 degrees (APLN mode)
    These actual limits are also visualised in the nacelles indicator ; see section 6.1.1.1, bullet "nacelles indicator".

    Just another example how detailed this aircraft is modelled according to real-world specs.
    And if you allow me to add (again) : why it's so important to properly read and understand the FlightManual, before flying this MV22B simulation and fully enjoy flying it.

    For new readers in this thread .....

    The MV22B Rel2 package now is available in the SOH Warbirds library too.
    Section Prepar 3D / P4D Addons.
    (one package for FSX, and all P3D versions)

    I am one of those new readers of this thread, and downloaded this gem from the SOH site.

    I also enjoyed reading this thread from the first post all the way through the one before this post.

    This certainly is taking me to a totally different flight sim experience. I know it will be a steep learning curve. YES, I will "Read TFM", lol. Even though I am, like any man, used to "just dive in" to come to the conclusion that reading the manual will help getting to grips with any new "toy", or explain why something is not working the way I thought it would.

    But at least I will not blame it on the product, but always say: "the issue is between the keyboard/mouse and the chair". This ends up being true most of the time.

    I would like to take the opportunity to thank Maryadi, Rob and anyone else involved in this project for all their efforts in bringing this beautiful rendition to the flight sim community.

    My issue was not about moving the switches but after having
    placed them in the position stated by the manual there were NO
    lights effect in the external view. (Yes the battery switch is ON).
    Also formation lights commanded from the EICAS LTS page
    don't appear in external view.
    (Effect files correctly installed in the effect folder).
    (FSX Gold - Windows 7 - 64 bit)

    Hello!
    I'd have to further check but now I'm out of home...
    ASAP I'll do it. THANK YOU

    Can you advise which key on the keyboard is the "TAB" key so I can change the values on the EICAS?

    Thank you,
    Reggie

    Manfred, you have a way with words! I say that most of my problems are caused by the "Loose Nut Behind the Wheel".

    It should be just above the Caps Lock key.

    I was looking for it on the FMC panel on the center console of the aircraft.

    Thanks,

    just push and hold TAB key, still holding it, push any other key, a character will show up in EICAS.

    Thanks Rob for the note on autopilot. I appreciate it. Went in and recalibrated axis and works fine now.

    With the APU on, and the CDU & MFD switch ON there are no CRT displays. See red arrows. What did I miss? It is hit and miss with these displays screens

    I had to use some keys to pan up to find those switches. In a normal overhead view, these switches are not visible within the screen parameters. I have to manipulate some key to move the overhead
    view to where those switches are visible.

    I am finding that the switches knobs and levers are functioning fine, if not slowly due to my computer specs. The mouse scroll wheel works way better than trying to use the mouse click and drag method. Yeah, like grey eagle describes, you kinda have to stand on your head and look upside down to find the proptip light switches, but no big deal. Looks great in the outside view.

    According to your picture, Avionics does not seem to been ON (center button just above StarterLevers)

    Don't give up ... you'll get it in the end ...LoL

    Yes, the lights do work fine. My point ^ was to make known that on my rig those prop rotor light switches were not within the normal overhead view I saw on my screen. I had to scan upwards to find them.

    Obviously, I found the prop rotor light switches


    This is my normal overhead view -

    Thanks for the help. Slowly, but surely, I am learning where all the bells and switches are. This is one nice and cleverly put together addon
    A bit of a challenge and sometimes overwhelming, but as I learn how to operate it, I like it more and more.
