    Approach CL

    Good evening, Being a person who is operating with definite expressions, let me explain some steps followed earlier today: 1. Uninstalled the AS Professional using the Windows Control panel, etc. 2. Removed (manually deleted) all left over folders from Documents and Roaming on HDD. 3. Restarted the computer. 4. Uninstalled P3D. This was an action planned earlier for shifting the SIM outside Program folder. 5. Manually deleted all left over folders from the HDD. There is a detailed instruction in Lockheed Martin site for the same. 6. Restarted the computer and deactivated the antivirus software. 7. Did a clean install of P3D (version 4.3.29.25520) and Airbus (version 1.2.1.0, which is the standalone version as per the instructions posted here. 8. Created a folder PMDG\WX under the P3D main folder manually. NOTE: It is recommended this step to be added somewhere in the manual. There are people who are using Airbus only and there is no way how they can know that the Bus reads the wind data from PMDG folder! 9. Updated the bus to version 1.2.1.2 using the updater. 10. Planned a flight EHAM - LPPT using PFPX, which is a software distributed by AS. 11. Created a fuel / load plan using the included planner. 12. Started the SIM and loaded the file plan and previously created fuel plan. 13. Following were the MCDU settings: Dep. Rwy 18L, SID: KUDA1E, Arr. Rwy 21, STAR: INBO5B, cruising level FL350. AIRAC 1811 using NavDataPro. Weather engine Active Sky 16 with soft clouds. Used livery - Easy Jet G-EZTB, A320-214 CFM, included into the package. 14. The 3 important files, flight plan, fuel plan and wind data are attached for reference. The flight was normal in general. The announcement 2,500 was made app. 5 miles before starting the Descent Preparation Checklist. I could record the distance from the green text counting the remaining miles before starting the Descent Preparation Checklist. Unfortunately have no idea how can this be recorded and sent for evidence. There was no issue with localizer and glide slope announcements, which were mentioned in my first post. Landing was proper with no issues. Some final words. I do not know how my statements concerning handling the Customer complains were perceived. I do apologize, if someone was affected due to whatever reasons. However and being for some decades into Customer oriented business I have to mention one golden rule that "Customer is always right". Without having the intention for being a mentor to anyone, I strongly feel that such rules should be followed. Thank you! Data_16_10.zip

    Approach CL

    Hi Rolf, Can you be more specific what you mean in your statement? My system is Intel i7, 4790, 3.6 GHz, DDR3 800 MHz, 16 Gb, Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060, 6Gb RAM. I am using AS Airbus A320/321 rev. 1.2.1.2 and P3D V4 latest version. My P3D settings are exactly as recommended in the last pages of AS documentation, Vol. 1, pages 01-03-27 and 28. One general comment, if you don't mind and without any prejudice. Can you please bare in mind that not all AS Customers are children or teenagers? There are lots of us who are adults with different background, professions and experience and transferring the problems from your head to ours sounds, gently speaking "strange". I would like always to keep the communications ethics and would avoid any harsh expressions, however it would be a good suggestion to the entire AS project team, if you reconsider your policy for handling the Customer complains. It sounds much more trustful and professional, if you admit that you do not have a definite or clear answer at particular point of time, instead of trying to transfer the problem to the Customer. Last, but not least is please let me share what I had inherited from my older colleagues and what I am always insisting from my young subordinates: "Customers are among our organization’s most valuable assets" Thank you for understanding and no bad feelings at all.

    problem with Flight Controls

    Dave, May I suggest something, which is unfortunately not part of AS official policy? I also had lots of problems with axes control hardware Saitec Yoke and Thrustmaster joystick in particular. There is definitely some drivers' interference on Windows or P3D level, which makes them working improper when used in one configuration. My go around method was using FSUIPC with different profiles for big and small planes. Just a suggestion of course

    Approach CL

    Hi Rolf, Thank you for the reply! I fully agree with your answers on items 1 and 3. Need to check once again especially point 3 during my next flight because there were no such calls during several approaches to different airports. It might be some kind of my fault. Unfortunately your statement: sounds, gently speaking, very strange. It is beyond my understanding how a EGPW can be activated and announce 2,500 (with a male voice) when the plane is cruising at FL350 for example. This as per my simple logic means that the plane is passing above a mountain pick almost 10,000 m (9,906 m to be precise) height above the sea level. The highest place in Europe, where my flight was, is Elbrus 15,781 ft (4,810 m). The difficult part is how to record such calls when they come absolutely unexpected?! Kindly comment.
  5. Hi, Let me share an observation from several flights, which are concerning the Approach and corresponding CL. Please note that I am using A320 pro, version 1.2.1.0 with the included Easy Jet livery (if it matters). Check lists and co-pilot are both on. Would appreciate comments. 1. I noticed that there was a stand alone call for activating the Auto brakes quite sometime before the approach CL was started. This activation was part of Approach CL before. I actually have no idea how a RW approach CL looks like, however this setting might be part of some CL, but not as a stand alone item, at least as per my opinion. 2. There were several altitude notifications during descend, which have nothing to do with the altimeter. It seems they come due to some interference or a bug, which is very difficult to trace because they are not repeated even following same rout at same place. 3. Were the calls for localizer and glide slope availability and capturing removed? I did not notice such in various flights. The good thing is that the plane follows. Would appreciate any comments and suggestions.

    Unable to get 'WINDS' in the FMS

    Hi, Let me say something for the subject again: 1. I really made a mistake in stating the folder. The one above is the real one where AS writes weather data. At least I got to learn that weather is not same as wind and they should be written in different folders. Sorry, sounds too complicated for an engineer's brain... 2. Finally I managed to make the AC to read wind data. I really have no idea what it was all about, but everything works good after completely removal of P3D, wiping out all its created folders and installing it again. This is valid for all applications related to P3D of course. Thank you for the support!

    Unable to get 'WINDS' in the FMS

    Hi, Even though I am a bit concerned where this discussions go, let me continue it and hopefully we come to a reasonable solution. This is a subject, where I honestly do not like to be involved. There are tons of writing for it and everyone considers his own opinion as the rightmost one. A good example can be this one: https://www.avsim.com/forums/topic/515345-p3dv4-install-location-does-it-matter-anymore/ I simply installed P3D (my version is 4.3.29.25520) in the default folder suggested by the installer. I can move it to a different location, if necessary. I am sure that the version of AS installed on my computer is ASP4 update 071818. It is stated to be the recent update for AS: https://hifisimtech.com/downloads/#ASP4. My question to you @mopperle is did you make any changes in the default folders of AS? It writes the weather data to C:\Users\You\AppData\Roaming\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v4 by default btw!? Yes I did. The entire flight plan was entered in MCDU The flight plan was loaded in AS. It doesn't happen for me automatically, but using corresponding Load function works. There would not be a file EDDBLDSP.wx created, if the flight plan was not loaded. Please note that stated .wx file contains all weather data for the road, which the program definitely is not reading. Would appreciate more comments, if possible.

    Unable to get 'WINDS' in the FMS

    Hi, To make the things a bit more clear, let me post something after Internet researches. Hope I am not reinventing the wheel... P3D V4 Generated folders: Documents ►Prepar3D v4 files \ Prepar3D v4 Add-ons Local Disk (C:) ►ProgramData ► Lockheed Martin ► Prepar3D v4 Local Disk (C:) ► Users ► You ► AppData ► Roaming ►Lockheed Martin ► Prepar3D v4 Local Disk (C:) ► Users ► You ► AppData ► Local ► Lockheed Martin ► Prepar3D v4 Based on this, please clarify where the PMDG folder should be placed for proper weather reading. I am repeating again my question asked yesterday: Sincerely hope that we can finalize this today... Thank you!

    Unable to get 'WINDS' in the FMS

    Hi Gentlemen, Please once more clarify with the developers how does this work? Most important is from which folder the MCDU reads the wind data. I had created ?:\..\Prepar3D v4\PMDG\WX\ on my drive as advised. AS writes 3 files there when the flight plan is loaded. The files are activeflightplanwx.txt, current_wx_snapshot.txt and EDDBLDSP.wx. My plane is in EDDB and no winds data is loaded whatever option I set on MCDU3. You can check the attached and is obvious that there is data in them. Please comment. EDDBLDSP.wx current_wx_snapshot.txt activeflightplanwx.txt

    Unable to get 'WINDS' in the FMS

    Hi, Thank you @mopperle and @Mathijs Kok for the explanation. Some last clarifications please: 1. Do I need to create a folder ?:\..\Prepar3D v4\PMDG\WX\ on my drive because I do not have such now? 2. What about when I fly online? I am flying with VATSIM too often and would like to use the bus. Thank you!
  12. I was referring to the menu page as per the attached screenshot:

    Parking brake issue

    Hi, Thank you for the suggestions! It was exactly a configuration issue. The thing is that the key configuration page of P3D is a mixture of keyboard buttons and joystick buttons, which I did not notice. Obviously the P3D button assignments have priority over those created by FSUIPC. Building a new config file resulted into even bigger mess because it leads to default assignments. In other words, to my previous situation. The solution was very simple, like all effective solutions. I remember watching a clip explaining how to configure FSUIPC. One of the essential steps mentioned there was to remove all joystick buttons from SIM configuration page. Except the pan view, which is much better to be there. Now all FSUIPC assignments for the joystick work perfectly. Thank you for the support and you may wish to close the topic, if necessary.

    Parking brake issue

    Hi, I had asked this same question in my previous post, but was advised to make a separate one for better follow up. Fully agree. I am facing a situation with activating and deactivating the parking brake of A320 Pro. It has an impact to the pitch trim also (changing its setting) when I am controlling the brake either by keyboard or by the button assigned by FSUIPC. There is nothing wrong when using the mouse. Any advise / thoughts aside from the fact that AS does not recommend using FSUIPC? Thank you!
  15. Thank you! I read it, but unfortunately the usage of a folder, which does not exist in the original Aerosoft configuration (I mean PMDG stated in the topic) make the things even more complicated. Please let someone answer me at least for what reason the weather source in MCDU3 menu was made and how it should be used. Suppose I do not have any weather engine installed and would like to use either VATSIM or SIM resources. Thank you!
