  1. When running through the checklists and auto FO selected ON, I get a Close Doors caption on the FMC. This does not cancel when the doors are closed. I cannot access the rest of the checklist as it thinks I have not closed the doors. Workaround = Set aircraft to Taxi state in the FMC.

    Hi Quattrofanatic - can you explain what C&D is short for?

    Doesn't work for me :-( Tried above, but sticks at CLOSE DOORS after Shift-E.

    Close Doors

    I've reinstalled in the C:\Users\YourName\Documents\Aerosoft\Airbus A318-A319 Professional as requested. Fresh download from AS server. I have exactly the same issue with using MCDU3 to close the doors once pax/cargo/fuel are loaded, ECAM shows doors all closed and slides armed, yet checklist still jams at close doors. The checklist for preflight all work as expected but I cannot move onto prestart as the Close Doors caption appears in the header and MCDU3. Gary

    C:\Myaddons\aerosoft\Aerosoft A318-A319 Professional for me, but that was the default setting. Regards Gary
  7. Yes MCDU3 was used to close the doors. This post is duplicate to the one I started already with the same issue.

    engines not starting

    Eduard - yes blue light on start (provided Engineer/overhead panel set correctly!!).

    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 :-)
  11. 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

    Sorry I just posted above you - same issue but you beat me by minutes! I'm not loading the tutorial, just using the checklists.
  14. 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
  15. 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... Gary
  16. 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

    FSUIPC

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

    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
  19. 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

    Topic: User Interface

    Agreed - the logbook entry should be optional to record your flight - I've a list of non-flights, where I was trying an aircraft system or weather effect but not taking off. (And they do add up!!!) Oh! and can deleting an entry not cause the sim not to start Aircraft Selection I would like to see 4 selections i.e. Boeing > 737 > 700 > easyJet Airbus > A320 > CFM > Lufthansa Cessna > 172 > Floatplane > operator Piper > PA-28 > Archer > operator To me it would make selection much cleaner - drop down lists fine with me, I hate the FSX selection with big menu pictures, and I have no need to select Single Engine Prop etc.. I know whether I want to fly a Cessna or Piper before I start, more specifically I would then choose a Cessna 172, 182, 206 etc. The manufacturer of the sim product ie. Aerosoft, Carenado etc again not to me so important. Thanks Gary

    Landing Sound Effects

    Same here - please note, I've only done one water landing and one runway landing as the real world gets in the way of proper fun things, but I saw the post and have responded. Using Surround 7.1 - and Vista 32. Having bought the CAT and installed it on Vista, I've only just see the advice not to!!! :-O Can I just add to everyone else's comments, but this is a superb add-on. I love the feel and look of this addon - all I need is the smell of an oily rag to breathe the fumes from and it's complete!! ps. the author of this post does not actually endorse inhaling carcenogenic oil vapours from old rags....
  24. Thanks for a wonderful addon for FSX - I've made the T-Ott my aircraft of choice - a fantastic piece of work, which is worth every cent. Unfortunately I have a problem with the DHC6 when using the GPS option. I have been getting a total computer shutdown using the GPS to go direct EGPH to XSTR (Strathallan). Every time I arrive at the EGPH runway, my computer system shuts down totally. I get no crash when using the analogue version. The crash is repeatable every time. I'm using Vista32, FSX SP2, Nvidia XTX1950, and Aerosoft DHC-6 with both updates installed. EGPH uses UK2000 extreme scenery, and XSTR uses Scotflight scenery. Thanks for any advice / help you can offer. Cheers Gary
