    This is a great tool but my airplane doesn't move. Any ideas why it is so? Thank you in advance 😊

    Haven't downloaded yet but I love how you can plan! Will make it so I don't have to pay attention to the pushback instead of setting up the aircraft

    Bonjour, j'ai téléchargé la version 1.0.2 et je sélectionne un pusback ensuite je sélectionne Toogle/pushback et l'avion est bien repoussé mais tout droit et il ne s'arrête pas. Je n'utilise aucun autre logiciel en même temps, cela le fait sur différents aéroport et avec différents avions. Je ne touche pas à la vitesse de simulation

    Sorry, I can't log into Github. This is a wonderful app. However, only version 1.0 is working correctly for me. I use Voice Attack to activate the pushback in VR. Version 1.0 has the speech bug where speech starts too early but the "auto pushback" pushes correctly. The new versions do not speak and the push never stops.

      Hi ashwad, i never used Voice Attack before. Will download it and test it.
      Are you using another SimConnect addon simultaneously?

      I recently find out that using multiple SimConnect addons a the same time creates a lot of issues.

      Really appreciate your Feedback! Thank you!

      Hi antonifc.
      No, I don't have any other simconnect apps running. I thought it might be a "focus" issue, however version 1 pushes correctly even if I am clicking items in the cockpit when my Voice Attack co-pilot requests push-back.

      I start the sim, configure auto push, switch to VR. Later I tell the Voice Attack co-pilot to request push-back. He does so by pressing "alt-p".

      Thank you for your help. Hopefully this will assist you with adding VR support.

    Seem to be running into an issue where I select the template I want but the tug just moves straight backwards and does not stop.
    • antonifc
      2 month(s) ago
      Does it happen with all the templates or just with a specific template?

      Thanks for your feedback!
    • Eyeofthetiger

      With every one I tried

      Will try to reproduce the issue on my side. Another quick question. Are you increasing the Simrate?
    • Eyeofthetiger
      2 month(s) ago
      No, tried with the 787 and A320 FBW

    Hi! Due to AV false positive PBR is not compiled into an Executable file, that’s the reason why you can’t pin the icon to the task bar for the time being.

    This will be fixed in the next release.

    How can I pin this app in the Start Menu?, the shortcut created on the desktop works, but I need to place this app along with my other FS2020 apps in the start menu. It doesn't even work on the Taskbar...

      Hi, I’m working on implementing VR Support for the add-on.

      Thanks for the feedback!
