  1. I am actually surprised that Aerosoft is still considering creating a 32 bit version. If a user is happy using FSX, which is a 12 year old platform with many bugs and severe limitations, why would the same user not be happy flying the (less than?) 5-year old excellent A320 that Aerosoft already offers for FSX? And even if so, why not get an Airbus from another company? There are pricier and cheaper alternatives available. Given that market situation, investing in FSX appears not to make a lot of sense. Peter
  2. Keep us informed whether P3D 4.2 has solved the issues with the new A320.
  3. You mean, with all the rest of the VC you're just exploiting the weakness of our eyes? I won't be able to tell. My legs are grey, my ears are gnarled, and my eyes are old and bent. Peter
  4. Douglas DC-8 preview

    I love both ways of flying. VOR/NDB navigation is more challenging, especially in areas like Northern Canada where you often only have NDBs and large variations between magnetic and true course. Mastering this can be very rewarding and is one reason why I like old airliners. FMS on the other hand is great if I want to get something else done while I am flying. It might be a good idea to add these links to the manual, or if a user/beta tester posts a video about a VOR/NDB flight. Thanks for working on the DC-8, Michael. I am really looking forward to it. Peter

    Seems like a lot of Aerosoft developers will be successful to get at my money this year Looks fantastic, I am really looking forward to this plane. Peter
  6. HDR light settings, PTA etc etc

    I actually like very much that LM added a kind of eye-adaption effect. If you first look on the instruments for a while and then out of the window, the scenery appears first very bright and the settles after 20 seconds or so. Certainly not extreme enough for the brightness above clouds, but a step in the right direction. Peter
  7. Changing the HGS clickspot

    I also support to change this. Mathijs, I had created another topic "Disable HUD?" on the same topic and you replied I should check on an existing topic. I had checked this before I created the topic, but I was searching for HUD, not HGS. I even searched in the CRJ manual to verify that HUD is the proper term, and it appears once in it (Vol1, specifically). If you hadn't closed the topic so quickly, I would have posted this explanation in the other thread. Peter
  8. Disable HUD?

    Hi, your CRJ is one of my favourite planes, but there is one thing that happens to me on almost every flight. I run P3D in windowed mode and often switch between different windows and the simulator. When I click on the simulator window to reset the focus on P3D, I usually click on some empty space, typically the windshield. However, in the CRJ, this is the click spot for the HUD. I never use the HUD, so for me it would be better if it could be completely disabled. It would also suffice if I could just disable the click spot on the windshield. Is that possible? Thanks, Peter
  9. Great idea How about Richard Branson for Air Asia liveries? Peter
  10. Hi Emmeth, maybe you meant "close attention"? The term "thick attention" sounds offensive ("thick" is sometimes used like "dumb" in English), but judging from the rest of your post it appears that this may not be what you intended?! Peter
  11. If you accomplish this I will switch VAs - as long as you tell me where to apply Peter
  12. How about producing one? I would love to see the difference to real world procedures and would be happy to pay for an instructional video. Peter
  13. Well, thew main reason like the rain effects is that finally the wipers are useful Peter

  15. Köln/Bonn airport preview

    Thanks Mathijs, that still gives me some hope . Even though they are now a bit dated, these regional airports are among my favorites. Peter
  16. Köln/Bonn airport preview

    That looks like a day-1 purchase for me Are there any plans to update other german regional airports as well? Peter
  17. Hello, I have a strange problem with the CRJ doors since the latest update to v1.0.1. I am using a program (FSCaptain) that monitors the state of aircraft doors using Lvars. Until the latest update this worked perfectly fine. However, in 1.0.1 that program does not recognize the door status anymore. I checked that the Lvars are still the same and take the same values. I also reinstalled the previous CRJ version and the program worked fine again. What could have changed in 1.0.1 that would cause such a problem? I could imagine that the CRJ now triggers some standard signals as well, which may confuse the other program, but I am just speculating. Any insight into what has changed would be very helpful. Thanks and best regards, Peter
  18. I was too quick with my report: the problem with the doors is still there. However, it appears that everything works fin if one uses Dave to open/close the doors rather than Shift-E. Peter
  19. I have just tested the doors with the recent update 1.02. It appears the problem has been fixed. I have only one data point so far, but at least in that case the doors worked perfectly fine. Peter
  20. Update pending

    Hello Mathijs and Twincessna, this problem does not only affect GSX, but also FSCaptain. The status of the main door is wrongly recognized. FSCaptain wants the door to be closed during the flight, but I would have to fly with the door actually being open to do so. However, on my latest flight I may have discovered something: it appears that the main door status is correctly recognized when one uses Dave to open and close it. Normally I use Shift-E, and that method seems to be faulty. Peter
  21. Update pending

    No fix for the door issue (third party programs do not recognize the door status) that has been introduced in the last update? I love this plane and this issue is the only one that affects me on every flight. I was hoping it would be a quick fix since it wasn't there in the original release. Peter
  22. Version

    Hello Hans, thanks for this great model and the update. I just checked it out: the issue that external programs like GSX and FSCaptain do not recognize the door status anymore, and which has been introduced between v 1.0.0 and 1.0.1, is still there. I wonder what you have changed back then. Peter
  23. Some bugs maybe..

    Just a tiny insignificant bug: the CRJ 900 checklist BombardierCRJ900_check.htm refers to the CRJ 700 (twice, pretty much at the top of the document) Also, the weights for station_load.X in aircraft.cfg appear not to match the (max) values given in the CRJ Manager. Peter
  24. Hi, I recently bought the Trier-Koblenz route for TS2017 and really like it, except for one issue: in the scenario IC 132 from Koblenz to Trier, the train always stops approximately 13 km before Cochem. I have read the manual, tried to disable/acknowledge PZB and whatever other systems I could think of, but the train nevertheless comes to a halt and cannot be put into motion anymore. There is an audio warning when this happens, but I cannot understand what it says (slice licorice?). I do not speed and all signals are solid green, so I am really at a loss. Any help is appreciated. Thanks, Peter
  25. Will SIMstarter NG work with P3D v4 ?

    I'm just wondering what the definition of "imminent" may be Peter
