    FSL website/forum has been hacked

    I assume it would be appropriate to raise awareness for this matter on the AS forum also. If mods/admins think differently, or if this topic gets out of hand, feel free to lock or delete it: The official FSL statement can be found here: XXXX Statement by FSL removed by mod as we can not verify their claims XXXX A quick search for "fsl hack" or similar may reveal ongoing discussions on various websites. I do not intend to start a similar discussion in the AS forum. Just wanted you to know ...
  3. Ich möchte hier keine neue Diskussion über FSL anfangen. Mir geht es lediglich darum, dass nach Möglichkeit jeder FSL Kunde über dieses, auch seine eigenen Daten betreffende Thema Bescheid weiß. Falls Forenleitung oder Moderatoren dies anders sehen, bitte meinen Topic schließen oder löschen: FSL wurde vor Stunden gehackt. Ihr Forum, Ihre Website und evtl. auch ihre online-Aktivierung sind betroffen. Damit sind unsere in ihrem Forum hinterlegten Daten grundsätzlich ebenfalls berührt. Kreditkartendaten sind wohl/hoffentlich weiterhin sicher. Hier mal die offizielle FSL Aussage auf Englisch: XXXX Statement by FSL removed by mod as we can not verify their claims XXXX Wie gesagt, es soll keine neue Diskussion werden, aber jeder FSL Kunde sollte das wissen.

    So how good a pilot are you?

    FlightSim Store ?

    Flightsimstore now has updated their storefront with new titles. They also sent out update notifications just yesterday, including one for the CRJ 700/900.

    Malware on the installer, yes or not? how would you fight piracy?

    Just to clarify: Independent sources stated that this particular malware extracted passwords from the Chrome browser specifically. People who use Chrome, but do not save their passwords in their browser, or people who use different browsers, should not be affected, according to those reports. This clarification should not be interpreted as a defense of FSL, though: I am not allowed to burgle a burglar's home in order to get things back he stole from me. Or: Becoming a victim does not entitle me to act as an offender.

    FlightSim Store ?

    I've subscribed to their update notifications but haven't received one for the CRJ yet. Since the CRJ is available as a box product also, the latest installer is available in the Aerosoft update database: https://support.aerosoft.com/pages/Login (You need your CRJ serial key to register your title there. The database seems to accept box keys as well as download keys.) EDIT: The latest full version in the database is 1.0.5. An additional (incremental) hotfix is available here:
  8. The question is whether this issue is reproducable on their machines. Maybe this time it is?

    CRJ Update Location

    Otto, I tested it myself with my CRJ download serial key from pcaviator.com. (That particular key should be blacklisted by Aerosoft, but it isn't ...)

    CRJ Update Location

    Rob, you can use the serial key provided by the other shop and go to the Aerosoft update database here right away: https://support.aerosoft.com/pages/login (Requires a separate sign-up.)
  11. The new Airbus configurator will allow you to choose coffee or cappuccino for the FA to serve * - what else do you need to know? *Sarcasm only, sorry ...

    Pressurization system/descent mode

    "Descent mode: The cabin full descent schedule occurs when the airplane is in descent. Cabin altitude decreases at approximately 300 to 750 ft/min, to either landing elevation, or maximum differential, whichever is highest. When the landing elevation exceeds 8,000 feet, cabin altitude will be maintained at maximum differential, until the airplane descends, then the cabin altitude will rate up to the pre-selected landing elevation." So normally the cabin should not descend below landing elevation before landing mode has started - and probably not 4.000 ft below before touchdown ...

    CRJ Update 1.0.5 incoming

    Not an Aerosoft employee anymore. (Sorry, Andreas, couldn't resist. )

    CRJ Update 1.0.5 incoming

    Da pesky Aerosoft launcher reared its ugly head again?

    Pressurization system/descent mode

    Implementation of the automatic mode has been announced for version 1.0.5 of the CRJ: So, will the TCAS RAs be next for implementation?

    CRJ Update 1.0.5 incoming

    Huge effort, but ... why has version 1.04. been skipped?!? (Current version is v1.0.3.)
  17. Now back on topic: Da beautiful Airbus will be released soon?

    Anti Virus disabling when installing

    For an eternity I haven't disabled firewalls, AV softwares and user account control when installing and/or running flightsims and their addons. In about 98% of all cases things worked as advertised. Only a few installations required disabling some protections, but when running my stuff all the protections were back in place and things worked flawlessly. What's still interesting to note is: Neither Microsoft nor Avast!, Avira or Malwarebytes, for example, flagged the test.exe dropped by "the other Airbus addon developer": https://www.virustotal.com/#/file/60641eef00a7498a62ac7686e656dad6e8f700cb4803a8a149707b2c4a3a09c9/detection
  19. "Feature question": Will there be a Chrome password extractor in the Aerosoft installer für P3Dv4 like in "the other company's" Airbus installer?

    Any progress?

    Or maybe 'Baby Herman' is just Hans' new nickname?

    Stall Warning Does not Work

    Fly into a massive wind shear in normal law and your Airbus *WILL* stall. The tricky thing is, the moment you enter that huge wind shear, your airspeed information becomes invalid, the Airbus therefore switches into alternate law, so your crash won't be in normal law anymore.

    Detail question about the (old) RW A320

    A few more items: the Habsheim accident report in English: https://reports.aviation-safety.net/1988/19880626-0_A320_F-GFKC.pdf From the FCTM: "ALPHA floor is available, when the flight controls are in NORMAL LAW, from liftoff to 100 ft R/A at landing. It is inhibited in some cases of engine failure." So ALPHA floor automatically disengages during landing when below 100 ft radio altitude. The Air Inter crash supplies an example of how the Airbus (wo)man-machine interface has been improved: Vertical speed now has a four digit readout that cannot be confused with the FPA readout anymore. (But the wheel for adjusting fpm or FPA still spins the wrong way - counter-intuitively - as opposed to the logic employed in Boeing planes, for example!) For what the FPA autopilot mode can achieve and what not, this Air Canada flight accident report provides some valuable insight, too (starting on p.57): http://www.bst-tsb.gc.ca/eng/rapports-reports/aviation/2015/a15h0002/a15h0002.pdf

    Detail question about the (old) RW A320

    Basically the low pass should never have been flown in that particular situation: Pilots weren't thoroughly briefed by their airline (briefing was only written and "last minute"). Pilots weren't briefed by persons in charge of the airshow (trees anyone?) Pilots had passengers on their plane (airshow stunts? With pax aboard? Seriously???) Airline knew about deficiencies of engine spool-up at low height, but hadn't yet informed their pilots (deficiencies beyond those allowed in the certification process) Airline knew about deficiencies of the barometric altimeters, but hadn't yet informed their pilots Pilots were basically conducting an "unstabilized approach", as they noticed the field too late, were too high, had to sink fast, and arrived slightly above field elevation with their engines more or less at idle. I am not quite sure about the "landing mode", but increasing engine thrust from a stabilized approach to go-around thrust is a couple of seconds faster than having them to spool up from (approach) idle conditions.

    Unfortunately LNAV still broken..

    I think you misunderstood eefields' post. Love my Cheyennes, BTW. Make me feel like a Chief ... ;-)

    Unfortunately LNAV still broken..

    +1 On a more positive note, I picked the Digital Aviation Piper Cheyenne box from the Aerosoft warehouse deals, and I am really happy with that plane (or should I say, with the Cheyenne collection ...)
