Thread: RCS North American B-25J RAF MkII FSX native

    Anyone have a problem with RPM max being only around 1800 at FULL INCREASE? Even at max MAP of 44" - I can reduce RPM, but max is only 1350 RPM. Prop levers also show 100% (FSX Steam /Windows 10). The cfg file shows:

    max_rated_rpm=2600.000
    gear_reduction_ratio=1.778

    Any ideas? maybe the tach gauge is wrong?

    Mike, I noticed that also. I installed RCS original panel and the rpm does exceed 1800 and go to 2400. But on the panel that ships with this d/l, I also noticed about 1800 max. I even tried moving the prop levers manually in this panel..no change. In the air, prop rpm increases slightly, but not in the 2400-2800 range we're used to seeing on these engines. I remember with Dean's Recorder, the prop rpm on the ground was below 2000. In the air, it seemed to eventually get to normal. Not sure if this was modeled purposely or not..Airplane flies good though. Roy's original panel really looks authentic in this one. Caution, if you install his original panel, don't open the flight in windowed mode or you'll only see a black screen and a spinning cursor. Load in full screen and you will see a click box at the middle bottom of the page that then opens fsx window. I thought at first that FSX had crashed, it hadn't. It was waiting for the CLICK that I hadn't seen in windowed mode.. Great panel..Hope we find out about the props though.

    Thanks for the feedback - I meant 1400 vice 1800 in my first statement.

    I agree about the original panel in the older version. I had tried it to see if it had RPM issues too, and got the "oh-oh moment" you talked about. I think mine was the FSX "do you want to use " trusted gauge thing. I noticed to late that he had a bat file that would eliminate the black screen issue supposedly.

    Very sorry to hear about Roy's fall and broken neck, I hope that he will heal and feel better.

    Sure wish this B-25 had a more complete virtual cockpit.

    I think i found the culprit for the RPM issue.
    In the B25.cab the PROP_RPM_12.xml has a value setting (A:PROP1 RPM, rpm)
    and (A:PROP2 RPM, rpm)
    and must have (A:General eng rpm:1, RPM) and (A:General eng rpm:2, RPM)
    as settings.
    I have attached a updated file.

    RPM_Patch.zip

    Simply replace the B25.cab with this file

    feel free to ask him, I tried, twice, in the past.
    You can find most of my repaints in the library here on the outhouse

    Postbaer61, thank you for checking this out. Works very well.

    Texture aircraft

    Does anyone know which squadrons are associated with these textures? I tried Googling "Moon Drop", for example, but didn't learn anything.

    Thanks for this! Outstanding work and the fix works great....

    It looks like this wonderful add-on may not work in FSX-SE. Roy says in the installation instructions that the auto-installer is the only way to use his B-25. SE, as you may know, has a couple of other steps in the installation sequence due to the SE file structure. I can get everything to install except the gauges.

    Thanks folks, for the nice comments.

    @downwind
    I'm sorry to hear.
    I only have FSX ACC and P3Dv4.3 in use, so i don't know the
    special installation routine and structure from FSX SE.
    If i understand you right, is there a working FSX SE version by Roy Chaffin.
    Why don't you use this version ?
    This new version isn't much different to the original and the original panel is also
    more complex then the new one.
    Perhaps you can try to install Roy's FSX version and replace the model and the
    texture folders against the new ones, if that makes sence for you.
