We got a new video from World of Aircraft: Glider Simulator and are asking for some alpha/beta testers! Check this post.

  1. It appears this was mentioned on the previous version of the CRJ. Randy
  2. Thanks, Mitch. The tutorial has you start engine 2 first and the shutdown check is a bit vague: "Complete fuel check valve Test for engine 1 – see chapter ” during preparation." Perhaps it should say, "Complete Fuel Feed Check Valve Test for engine 1 (or engine that was started second) – see para. 4.1.5 Item 10", or something clearer. At any rate, I will run through the startup again today and look for the FUEL LO PRESS warning on the EICAS. Perhaps I didn't wait long enough. But shouldn't the ON lights extinguish when you shut off the boost pump switches? Randy
  3. Following the tutorial (p. 2-1-51), after starting Eng 2 you are supposed to carry out the Fuel Feed Check Valve Test. I can operate the Fuel Boost Pump switches (they move), but they remain ON and no "RIGHT FUEL LO PRESS" message appears on EICAS. It goes on to say, "Please keep in mind that now you have to shut down engine 2 first to complete the test procedure!" Is this correct??? Randy
  4. Something strange is happening when changing the payload on the Performance page of the EFB. Setting up the aircraft as empty (0 Fuel/Cargo/Pax) in the CRJ 700 (set to lbs) gives me CG 30.1% MAC. Adding 10 Pax and the CG goes to 52.0% MAC! However, this changes once the Set Payload in Simulator button is pressed. It then shows 5.7% MAC. The green bullseye moves as you alter the load, but does not depict what the numbers are after pressing the button. Sometimes pressing the button a second time yields a different result. Sometimes the Payload shows 0 even with Pax showing. It's very random. Aircraft power OFF or ON does not seem to make a difference. Randy
  5. @Mathijs Kok With the release of P3D v4.5.13.32097 (i.e. hotfix 2), can you confirm that the A3xx are compatible or should we hold off on updating P3D? Randy
  6. I have tried the A320 CFM and A321 IAE and both exhibit the issue. I have noticed that if you toggle several switches (Strobe, Beacon, Wing) beforehand, the problem does not show. Also, switching to C & D after loading in a running state (which has the Nav & Logo already in position 2) and all is well. Randy It appears to have been mentioned before:
  7. I just wanted to add that I, too, am having this issue. I thought it was just me having a hard time locating the click-spot (I'm usually looking from the PF seat, not directly on). I have only tried from C & D. P3D was updated completely (client, content, scenery and HF1) and clean install of A3xx v1.2.5.0 (deleted folders as mentioned in Dave's post). I have only used CFM engines and it is only that switch which gives me problems. Running as Admin and using BitDefender (Windows Security disabled). Using GSX and EZCA. I haven't flown the Airbus in a while but can do some more testing. Randy
  8. I will just add that the reason I wasn't getting prompted to refuel using the aircraft fueling system was because I had the GSX Message Verbosity slider a notch to the left (Display Only Important Messages).
  9. Update: So the reason I wasn't being asked to start fueling is because I had the Message Verbosity slider in GSX set to "Display Only Important Messages".
  10. I do not currently have Estimate Passengers Number checked (I used to) and I tried the other option both ON and OFF and it made no difference to the fueling issue (and didn't ask me to start fueling when ON or OFF). I will test again to be sure. Randy
  11. After another test or two, as soon as you request fuel using GSX, you're locked in and will have to wait for it to finish. Load Fuel and Load Instant no longer function. Load Fuel stays orange until GSX decides to start fueling. Boarding works for me (Estimate PAX number is disabled in GSX so it asks for the number once GSX boarding is requested). However, requesting boarding via GSX also disables Load Instant. Will wait for a fix. Almost time to push back... Randy
  12. Just to update this post before it is closed - it was NOT the setting of chocks that started the fueling. It starts by itself after a certain time once the fuel truck arrives. The Load Fuel and Load Instant functions no longer work once you call for fuel via GSX. Randy
  13. I just did another test and setting the chocks made no difference (from C&D, using checklists, it asks you to set the Parking Brake, which appears to cause the chocks to be removed). It was obviously just a coincidence. I then did another test and using the same procedure (checklists for pre-flight, load the Loadsheet in MCDU3, call for boarding and fuel (in that order)) - I decided just to sit and wait after boarding was complete (fuel truck had already arrived and hooked up earlier). Approx 3 min later, fueling began without any further actions from me. Next time I will ask for fuel before boarding and see if it makes any difference. Randy
  14. As per the other thread on fueling, the truck arrived, hooked up, but then did not begin fueling, even after all pax were boarded. The Fuel entry in MCDU3 remained orange. I did not notice GSX asking to use the aircraft systems to refuel, but once I set the chocks (even though the Parking Brake was ON), fueling began. Maybe this will assist in isolating the issue. 'Detect custom aircraft system refueling' was OFF. Randy
