Issue: Fuel drops immediately after refueling (all versions)

Use the x737project menu!

27. August 2016

Solution: x737project overrides X-Plane's fuel logic to simulate the Boeing 737NG fuel systems as realistic as possible. To get fuel in your aircraft you must use the x737 menu which you can pop up by clicking left or right of the overhead panel where old 737 aircraft had eyebrow windows (see screenshot). Bringing up the fuel request allows to select fine options like refueling in realtime which is the most realistic way to start a flight.

Hope that helps! If problem continues please contact the x737project team.

Issue: Landing gear cannot be retracted

Not an x737 bug, easy to fix

6. February 2015

Solution: This is an X-Plane 10.30+ issue. To solve this please uncheck all failures in X-Plane's

'Aircraft->Equipment Failures'

menu. If this does not help you might have to delete X-Plane's preferences: Navigate to the subdirectory

'Output->Preferences'

and delete all files beginning with 'X-Plane'.

Hope that helps! If problem continues please contact the x737project team.

Issue: Looking for a checklist plugin

Xchecklist is the solution

26. February 2015

The x737project aircraft comes with checklist file which is parsed and handled by a checklist plugin. While formerly Checklister (end of life) by Snailpup was the standard, nowadays Xchecklist by Sparker is the perfect companion on your trip. Get the Xchecklist plugin from x-plane.org:

http://forums.x-plane.org/index.php?app=downloads&showfile=20785

Follow Xchecklist's installation manual and launch x737, the checklist will be loaded automatically. 

Thanks to Snailpup for the first checklist plugin, and thanks to Sparker for the great plugin Xchecklist.

Issue: Many yellow rectangles are visible on the 2D-panel

You can turn off this help

6. February 2015

Solution: The yellow recangles on the 2D panel are part of the onscreen help, they indicate the mouse click regions. Every such region can be clicked to operate the x737project aircraft.

The idea of visible mouse click regions is an X-Plane feature, and so you can turn it off in X-Plane if you don't need this help.

Go to X-Plane's menu

'About->Instructions'

and deselect 'show mouse click-regions in the cockpit' - that's it!

Hope that helps! If problem continues please contact the x737project team.

Issue: Some displays appear greenish at night

x737project v5, X-Plane 10.50+

25. September 2016

Reason: Starting with X-Plane 10.50 your favorite simulator adds green color to some clickable areas when 'Show mouse-click regions in cockpit' is selected.

Solution: Turn off 'Show mouse-click regions in cockpit' in X-Plane, using the menu 'About->Instructions'. Note that this is not a bug, this is a feature!

Issue: x737 does not load additional liveries

Check the paths!

6. February 2015

Solution: You can download more than 200 fine liveries for thebx737project aircraft. In order to load these liveries make sure that they are installed in the right hierarchy.

 

To get the liveries installed you must take care of the correct folder hierarchy:

Inside the x737 aircraft folder there is a folder ‚liveries‘

Inside this folder there are various folders with the liveries

Inside every single livery folder you must find the folders ‚conf‘ and ‚objects‘

 

Most problems occure because the liveries are installed one level to deep. Please refer to the image below to see how the structur.

Example: Let’s say you want to use the livery ‚AeroMexico‘. Then you must place the folder ‚AeroMexico‘, which contains immediately the subfolders ‚conf‘ and ‚objects‘, inside the ‚liveries‘ folder. This is an X-Plane convention: In this case X-Plane expects the folders ‚liveries/AreoMexico/objects/‚ and x737 expects ‚liveries/AeroMexico/conf/‚.

Hope that helps! If problem continues please contact the x737project team.

Issue: x737 starts up without usable cockpit

Select the right view in X-Plane!

6. February 2015

Solution: x737 version 4.* is equipped with a pretty good 2D panel! We are preparing for version 5 which has a perfect 3D cockpit. For more information about the development please see our x737blog.

To get the 2D panel up please go to X-Plane's 'View' menu and select

'Forwards with panel'. 

Furthermore - as long as version 5 is not yet released - we suggest to modify the rendering options in X-Plane: Go to X-Plane's 'Settings' menu and select 

'Rendering options'

Look at the screenshot below to learn how to select the right defaults.

Hope that helps! If problem continues please contact the x737project team.
