Maybe your wifi? I had a lot of trouble with glitching playing Zombie gunship on my ipad via Apple TV, until I moved my Wifi router to a better location.

The other annoying bug is when I switch my left hand ipad from radio page to MFD, the iPad sometimes does an orientation change and the MFD or Radio page is inverted?
Not sure what is causing this as the iPad is not moved during the swipe up or down?
I've seen the orientation thing every now and again but I can't reproduce it on demand so I don't really know what to do to fix it.

I'll try to look into the CDU freezing. There's a lot of magic going on in the background to try and keep things as fast and light as possible to get the best transfer/frame rate, in some cases at the expense of stability. Do you have the same problem with the MFDs?

Just released a server update that will fix the script installer for those of you who have relocated your Saved Games directory.

You won't have to manually copy scripts any more!

Does this work with SU-27?

Hi Boarder
I have not noticed the MFDS do it but have seen the radio page and fault panel lock up and need a switch back and forth to the MFD page to solve it
The orientation change when switching from radio page to MFD is now highly reproducible for me.
Still love the app but would like to solve these bugs.
Cheers.

Is there a way to have just the UFC?

I know there will be wasted space but I have the TM MFDs and would like the UFC as large as possible.

I've found and fixed the orientation problem. It will be resolved in the next release (early next year, I hope). I'll see if I can narrow anything down on the inconsistencies with the CDU as well.

For the time being, if you leave the iPad oriented so that the home button is on the right side, it should behave normally. The problem occurs when the home button is on the left.

There's no way to do custom layouts at this time.

I hope to get all the functionality of the iPad app into the Android app eventually. You'll be able to perform a cold ramp start from the device. Unfortunately I don't have an ETA as I haven't gotten dials or switches working in Android yet and I have been incredibly busy with work and life lately! Hopefully things will calm down early next year and I can start getting some things added within a few months from then!

A-10C is the only aircraft currently supported.

Hi border2
That is awesome!
Because of the cockpit setup I have, and the need to power the iPads, I have the iPad I use for MFD's and radio page with Home button on the left, which is why I'm seeing the orientation changes regularly I guess..
Great that there is a fix in the works
Thanks again.
