Please note your findings. Do not forget to mention your operating system and the revision of the HELI-X version.

Operating system:
- Debian 9 (4.9.0-8-686-pae #1 SMP Debian 4.9.130-2 (2018-10-27) i686 GNU/Linux)

Java (default shipped with Debian 9):
~$ java -showversion
openjdk version "1.8.0_181"
OpenJDK Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_181-8u181-b13-2~deb9u1-b13)
OpenJDK Server VM (build 25.181-b13, mixed mode)


- Controller works like a charm, as in HELI-X 5, 6, and 7. Switches except "Thumb" are successfully assigned.
- Frame rate (35-50 FPS) is acceptable for old hardware. Scrolling is not such smooth, but OK.

Issues:

1. Some files could not be found after startup
Couldn't find tag "PropellerPosition" in file "file:/home/carsten/Programme/HELI-X8-Beta/resources/models/plane/ASW28/ASW28.xml"
Couldn't find tag "PropellerTurnAxis" in file "file:/home/carsten/Programme/HELI-X8-Beta/resources/models/plane/ASW28/ASW28.xml"
Couldn't find tag "VisualRightLandingFlapMinMaxAngle" in file "file:/home/carsten/Programme/HELI-X8-Beta/resources/models/plane/ASW28/ASW28.xml"
Couldn't find tag "VisualPropellerPlateAngle" in file "file:/home/carsten/Programme/HELI-X8-Beta/resources/models/plane/ASW28/ASW28.xml"
Couldn't find tag "TailWheelContactStiffness" in file "file:/home/carsten/Programme/HELI-X8-Beta/resources/models/plane/ASW28/ASW28.xml"
Couldn't find tag "TailWheelContactViscosity" in file "file:/home/carsten/Programme/HELI-X8-Beta/resources/models/plane/ASW28/ASW28.xml"
Couldn't find tag "TailWheelContactViscosityTangential" in file "file:/home/carsten/Programme/HELI-X8-Beta/resources/models/plane/ASW28/ASW28.xml"
Couldn't find tag "TailWheelFrictionFactorX" in file "file:/home/carsten/Programme/HELI-X8-Beta/resources/models/plane/ASW28/ASW28.xml"
Couldn't find tag "TailWheelFrictionFactorZ" in file "file:/home/carsten/Programme/HELI-X8-Beta/resources/models/plane/ASW28/ASW28.xml"
Couldn't find tag "VisualTailWheelMinMaxAngle" in file "file:/home/carsten/Programme/HELI-X8-Beta/resources/models/plane/ASW28/ASW28.xml"
Removing plane/ASW28/ASW28.obj n-b:3

2. Java Runtime Exception (Array index out of range)
Reproducible: When downloading a new airport, at the end the log shows "Deleting <path>".
Exactly at this moment the exception arises

Code: Select all

Controlled Heli: net.HeliX.s.h.b@10d6b05
Exception in thread "Thread-17" java.lang.ArrayIndexOutOfBoundsException: Array index out of range: 46
	at java.util.Vector.get(Vector.java:751)
	at net.HeliX.n.jq.c(Unknown Source)
	at net.HeliX.n.kh.run(Unknown Source)
The Log does not show "Finished", but the airport scene is usable. Bug does not depend of airport type.

3. Model Easy Star preview not correct
Within the "Model select" dialog, the image preview for selction "EasyStar", and "EasyStar_Ailerons" show ASW28 in the prewiew area.

4. Sound of engines can be improved (not realistic)
The sound of the props is OK, but the sound of the engines can be improved, especially when idle or low rpm. When idling, the sound nearly falls silent (for electric OK, but for gas-engine not OK). E.g. Trojan: Engine sounds like constant rpm, volume is increased with throttle.

5. Rudder not working realistic for Steaman

6. Emergency landing does not fit for glider
Select e.g. BMFA-Unterfladnitz and ASW28 and start Emergency Landing Training. The glider does not respond to steering commands as expected.
I thought, one can use this feature to simulate towing a glider and have an aerodrome circuit.

7. RESolution should be a little bit more agile. I fly exactly the same model. The simulation feels like slow-motion (checked dual rates for both flight modes to be 100%, expo 0%).

8. Crash of plane looks often very unrealistic.

9. HUDs: Variometer overlaps Stall Warning instrument

10. Stall meter not functional for planes

11. Program hangs after switching model
Not reproducible, but seen twice after several hours and apprx. 20 model changes. After switching the model and pressing OK, the program hangs, because it seems to run in an endless loop, generating following messages:
