Firstly, thank you for creating such an excellent and useful utility. Now that I have discovered it, I find that I use it all the time for my IFR flights. I praise this utility very highly during flight nights within my VA, in the hope that others may start using it.
My question is that sometimes, a checklist item is missed (mostly by me!), and the checklist won't move on; is there a way to either find out what the current check list item is, or restart a checklist or flight phase?
I haven't been able to use the force flight phase item successfully yet.
However, I've not been using this long, so there's a chance that I haven't discovered all of it yet.

The checklist item should appear inside flight simulator. If you look at the top of your screen, you should see the checklist item at the top, displayed in red font on the typical FS green banner. Also, you should be able to hold ctrl to proceed to the next checklist item. The force flight phase option is used to allow the user to start in the air, if they so choose. It's not tied to the checklist at all. The checklist actually runs on another thread.
BTW, I'll add a visual checklist to the GUI so the user knows what checklist item they're on. Also, I'll add the ability to restart the checklist...GREAT IDEAS!
Hi, Thank you for the reply, it's appreciated. I'm looking forward to V2 enormously. Would it be at all possible to include other pilot sounds, similar for instance to the various calls made by "Intelligence Cabin Announcements (ICA) V 1.0"; it seems to be a natural extension of the programme. Best wishes, Fabio

Interesting enough, the code is already there to support it. I removed the option during the final stage because I get this feature via QWPass. It plays the safety message when FSFO detects the seat-belt sign is turned on and the door is closed during pre-flight. I'll add to the list for V2 and make sure its included...
