  1. engines not starting

    Eduard - yes blue light on start (provided Engineer/overhead panel set correctly!!).
  2. engines not starting

    Further to the non-start issue - it seems the people with non start have a default cold and dark senario selected for their default aircraft. Start P3D with your default aircraft and start the engine(s). Once running, change aircraft to the DC-8. The DC-8 will load with engines running. When ready, shut the aircraft down and turn off power/switches. Save your flight as Default. Next time the aircraft runs it will start normally - provided you select the correct switches obviously :-)
  3. engines not starting

    Yes to all and XML Tools was installed as per forum instructions.
  4. engines not starting

    Sorry I just posted above you - same issue but you beat me by minutes! I'm not loading the tutorial, just using the checklists.
  5. I'm needing some help with the engine start. I have followed the checklist many times now following cold and dark setting via Shift-3. The blue light on the start switch lights, but I have no rotation on the N2 for the #3 engine (or any engine even). I have Manifold Air Press = 35, Start Air Pressure = 0.7, HYD Brake Press = 0 and Air Brake Press = 3, Fuel pressures in green arc, loaded with 40,000lbs fuel using the Shift-3 fuel loader, Tank > Engine selected for the fuel panel. Any help appreciated (I have also tried Ctrl-Shift-F4 just in case its a P3D mixture issue). Thanks in anticipation! Gary
  6. I'm using P3Dv4.2.21.24048 and the CRJ update says installation requires P3Dv4.2 or higher. Installation will now terminate. Help please!! Gary
  7. Looking forward to this!! I know these things take years to develop but if there was a possibility of extending to the -20, -30, -40 and 60 series as an add-on for the future I'd buy that too! Thanks for including the CP Air livery too.
  8. Very nice work with the big exception that there are no passenger airstair textures included in the 1.2 version. Gary
  9. Thank you Marcel and Snave. It narrows it down when I know it's a standard FSX function used for trim. Having tried various tweaks with my Saitek X52, I was thinking on the same track as Snave suggested looking to see if a helicopter force trim was somehow causing the issue. Pleased to say it has been solved with nothing more than a fresh boot of the PC. Thanks for the feedback and sorry to have wasted your valuable time, Obviously can't see the wood for the trees...

  10. If sorry to report the trim issue with FSUIPC is not cleared here with the Trisager solution. I can move the trim up and down, but once the trim is moved to any new position it returns itself to 2 lights up from the bottom position on the indicator. No difference whether the joystick or the console switch is used to retrim. Other than that major bug I love this addon!! Regards Gary

    Great Andy - I'm not sure I understood what I was doing but it now works! Thank you.
  12. FSUIPC

    I've just recently purchased the full registered FSUIPC and now find my Airbus X will not advance thrust for takeoff. From the previous posts I have read, am I right in saying I have to remove the FSUIPC module to get the throttles to work? I've tried calibration and restart, but the only fix I have found so far is to remove the FSUIPC module from the FSX folder. Thanks for any advice here. Latest FSUIPC and Airbus X v1.22, Win 7-64. Gary
  13. In external view how do you remove the GPU and the steps from the A300? I can see steps and GPU still attached, even when the aircraft moves. Thanks Gary Win7-64, FSX SP2 Acceleration

    Thanks for the update - I will look forward to buying it when it's ready. Gary
