Btw, I LOVE the heavy breathing stuff. Makes it so much more interesting.
Hmm....weird....did I mention this is for FG 2.0? All my testers haven't had any problems with the AP function (FG 2.0), everything from vertical-hold down to glideslope functions quite well. Everything else works well also. Indeed it would have been weird to add AP display in the HUD if it didn't work, but it does work (well at least on my system), which is why I implemented it on the HUD.
I'll post the my latest version soon, but I dunno if that'll fix anything since I haven't touched the AP file yet. Maybe I'll do that next.
Ohh...i think I know what you mean....in my experience, the vertical , alt hold AP functions quite poorly, it needs a lot of 'guidance' before you can turn it on or else AP will always over-steer/over-compensate the pitch and or turn. But it does work, just need practice. Best speed for AP is around 250 ~ 300kts. Above 400kts you'll get mad oscillation, below 250kts, well you'll be more busy sweating while checking your AoA doesn't exceed the limit with AP on.

I was considering using a female voice for the breathing, but the closest thing I got wasn't the thing I wanted. It ended up sounding like a squirrel choking on a nut. Plus, a female heavy breathing might sound like something else...
...just a little fun.
**EDIT the F-5E uses the generic autopilot, and I guess that was meant for slower planes. I'll study the AP syntax and see what I can tweak to make it work better. -Zexe
