  1. Hi guys, ill try and word this the best I can. Trying to trouble shoot a VA livery being installed wrongly when using the Livery manager. Doing it the manual route works fine. Its a livery for the 321 IAE. When using the Livery manager, it puts the texture folder into the right 321 IAE subfolder, it also makes the entry into the aircraft.cfg file. However for some reason it is changing the model = line to model = EXTCFMShark, instead of model = EXTIAEShark. This of course means its failing to show in the sim. Like I say when I install it myself manually doing the necessary edits it works first time in the sim.

    Actually I believe the livery manager has been fixed so it now makes the edits automatically for you. I have installed 2 livery’s which were for the old version by just using the livery manager and they work fine. The livery repaint needs to be packaged in the zip format to be run through the manager though.
  3. Hi Hanse, I noted even now this still isn't fixed. have just done a flight and at 10,000ft both switches were switched at the same time and both wave files played at the same time so overlapped.
  4. ORBX England has an option to tick in its control panel if your using Aerosoft mega airport Heathrow if you are un aware. Shouldn't be the cause of your problem though.

    Obsolete sound for CA bringing coffee

    Its already on the list to be fixed (what we are working on forum), posted initially by myself here,

    Split second warning sound

    This happens to me also, from soon as I power up the aircraft and then start to commence the copilot/checklist function. Continually happens until pushback and engine start. No ecam message.
  7. Couldn't think of the right title to put so bare with me. Basically I have noticed when using the copilot/checklist function, when passing 10,000 feet climbing, the seat belt and no electronic device switches are switched at the same time, this causes the hostess announcements to play at the same time and overlap each other.
  8. Hi Mathijs, thank you for taking the time to reply in what I’m sure is a busy time. I’m referring to the “here you go captain here’s some drinks for you” and “here you go captain here’s some sandwiches for you”. They played in the old buses whilst in cruise and still play in the new ones. Just trying to say they seem out of place because you don’t have to do anything with the door like you do with the new part you have added during climb where you have to turn on the camera and unlock the door after the door bell rings.
  9. Nope, im referring to what I said. When I was climbing I thought it was a nice touch that when the door bell rang you had to switch on the cockpit door camera and unlock the door to bring coffee in. Then once in cruise all of that seems to go out of the window and the hostess just comes and goes as she pleases". The coming's and going as pleases with more drinks is the way it used to happen in this old busses. What im referring is also detailed in the step by step guide, step 161.
  10. Please feel free to move this if its in the wrong place. When I was climbing I thought it was a nice touch that when the door bell rang you had to switch on the cockpit door camera and unlock the door to bring coffee in. Then once in cruise all of that seems to go out of the window and the hostess just comes and goes as she pleases. Can I ask if this is correct? double standards or old sound files left in?

    SUGGESTIONS (could be pinned)

    on all devices. tick boxes so you can delete multiple charts in one go (for example to clear your kneeboard). A setting to choose which way you would prefer the charts initially, portrait or landscape. 95% of the charts i have used for flights so far the first thing I've had to do is rotate them to portrait mode so i can read the chart rather than the info writing around the outside.

    removal of static aircraft

    sorry my second question is totally different. Ive been tryingto make some changes to the AFCAD file with Airport facilitator X, and they dont seem to be working even though ive saved them. ok, i managed to change the file extension to .off This had several effects: 1. it did not remove the crudy static aircraft that comes with mega airport heathrow. 2. it is no longer able to be located in AFX as its not a scnery extension so i can not edit the AFCAD. 3. It makes FSX load up mega airport heathrow, and the default FSX scenery in one go so, as you can imagine, it looks a mess, with air bridges popping out of everywhere. I appreciate your help.

    removal of static aircraft

    it hasnt worked, i thought i had renamed it, how do i rename the file extension please which your telling me to do, also editing this file in AFX doesnt seem to have any effect with regards to parking allocation, is there another afcad file you know of, if there is AFX is not picking it up when i search.

    removal of static aircraft

    thank you Chris, renaming the file worked a treat. re the air bridges, i have the current AES and the air bridges are working a treat with the AI traffic, i just wasnt paying enough attention
  15. evening all, any light please? i really like mega airport heathrow for fsx, and in general my FSX is looking really good now, have installed ultimate traffic 2. However now the static aircraft that come with mega airport look horrible, something out of the first flight sim compared to my AI packages. Firsty, is there a way i can remove these static aircraft from the scenery. Secondly how can i get the air bridges to work with my AI traffic. ultimate traffic AI works with the default ones.
