Hi folks!

I just purchased ISG1 2 nights ago and have been doing some reading and experimenting. The reason for this post comes from an issue or two I am having, and that a "few" of you seem to have had in the past. Unfortunately, I could not find any "fix" for the problem. OK, here's what's happening...

1) I start FS9 with the "default Cessna" and start the "default flight" (just as we all know one should do).
2) I then change the aircraft to ANY aircraft that contains an ISG1 panel retrofit (retrofits from the ISG1 site of course).
3) If I then try to "exit" FS9 (by "exit" I mean clicking the "X" in the top right corner of the FS9 Window).
4) The "Are you sure..." window pops up, I click "OK" and the main body of the FS9 window goes "black" with only the boarder and edges showing. It will stay "hung" like this unless I bring up Task Manager and force FS9.exe to close.

This only happens when I have a plane with ISG1 guages installed.

Now, there is a very simple way to "quit" FS9 and prevent this "black screen/ hang". Simply end the flight by hitting the ESC key.

OK, so that's not that bad of a problem, since I just just have to be careful with the way I close FS9!!! But, here is another problem I am having and again, I did not find a solution.

I have the Wilco CRJ200 panel retrofit, and I modified that to retrofit the Wilco CRJ700. Actually, this is why I purchased the ISG1 package. The FMC (S) of the Wilco CRJs seem to have a "hard" time keeping "on track", in NAV mode, in any kind of of windy conditions. I fly mostly on VATSIM now and ATC "don't like that"!!! LOL!

Anyway, I find that the ISG1 Smiths FMS has "periodic" problems as well (when used with this plane... I have not tried it in any other plane). VNAV and LNAV don't seem to work consistently. Now, I know that some who are reading this are thinking, "ya right... it ain't the FMS, it's how you are using it"! You may be right!?! But, lets just say I am following the directions for use correctly... FD, HDG, SPEED, AP modes all "armed" and then click VNAV (to manage the climb), turn to the correct heading using the HDG bug, then hit LNAV (to manage the flight plan... LNAV does not always do that though).

I realize the Wilco CRJ series is old, and that it has some problems, but there is no other game in town right now. So, if you think you can help me, please do!

Thank you all in advance for your help... my VA will thank you as well.

Here are some of my system specs...

1) A complete Saitek ProFlight setup (accept the guages). I use a 3rd party driver (SPAD 1.4.1)
2) Windows 7 Ultimate 64, FS9.1, (did not try FSX with ISG1), FSUIPC and WideFS, SB4 on a client PC
3) TrackIR 4 , Matrox DTHTG (3x 22" monitors) and 4th 22" monitor on second "DVI" on video card.
4) I-920 CPU OCed to 3.8 gHz, 3x 2GB RAM (6 GB), nVidia GTX8800, FS9 is on it's own HD (separate from OS and all other programes).

If you need more specs... or anything else, just ask!

Thanks again!

Murray
