  1. Any plans to update Mega Airport Prague for P3D v5? The installer won't even run. kernelbase.dll error immediately when I try to start it, so it doesn't even know what P3D I have yet?
  2. As I indicated in my OP the traffic cones were not being removed and removing them myself did not initiate the pushback. But this morning I've fixed it! I completely uninstalled the Aerosoft Bus and GSX/GSX2 including removing their folders and doing a registry clean. After reboot I installed the Aerosoft Bus 1.3.0.0 and verified it was completely up to date and working in P3D. I then reinstalled GSX/GSX2 and verified that it was completely up to date. After another reboot I went through the whole boarding/loading process and then asked for pushback. Here's what I believe was the problem: After installing 1.3.0.0 in the MCDU3 Ground Services menu GSX services were turned off. Once I turned them back on pushback worked as expected, including the traffic cones being removed. I don't know if that's what the original issue was but it might be a good idea to verify whether GSX Services get turned off when upgrading from 1.2.5.0 to 1.3.0.0? Thanks for everyone's responses.
  3. Not sure and I don't remember. I never got to even taxi from the ramp. After pushback the plane just wouldn't move. I uninstalled 1.3.0.0 and installed 1.2.5.0 and now the plane will move again. I don't know if GSX is going to work again as I didn't try it?
  4. Yes, I agree that I don't know if this is a problem with the Bus or with GSX? Regardless, I uninstalled 1.3.0.0 and reinstalled 1.2.5.0 after a reboot. Now I have to see if it all works correctly?
  5. Yes, that's correct. Never had an issue until the update last week. Now I ran into an even stranger problem. I just setup a flight, went through the checklists using the automatic copilot, pushed back using the built in pushback feature in the Aerosoft bus, and once it was completed I went through the after start checklist with no problem, got to the point where I was supposed to start to taxi and the aircraft refused to move. It was like it was stuck in concrete. Even with the engines at max throttle the aircraft wouldn't budge. This was at Aerosoft Frankfurt. I slewed to another location thinking maybe I had found a spot on the airport where there was a clipping problem (though I've used that gate dozens of times without issue). After slewing to somewhere else on the airport the aircraft still refused to move an inch. I ended up quitting out of P3D as there was no way to get the plane to move at all. All this is very frustrating. I guess I can uninstall the Aerosoft bus and reinstall using the older version, if I still have that installer? I'll have to search for it.
  6. I use the automated copilot and checklists, so they are supposed to be removed automatically,
  7. In the last week I updated the Aerosoft baby bus (A320/321...I don't own the 318/319 or 330) to version 1.3.0,.0 and also it seems like GSX 2 is always updating itself. Now the last few days when I call GSX for push back it starts but never pushes back. I get de-iced if needed, the PB truck connects, the FO goes thru the checklist, and that's it. It just sits there and does not initiate the push back. It never asks for parking brakes released or gives me any message to release them. One thing I noticed in MCDU3 is that the parking cones are never removed, but even if I remove them GSX still never pushes back. I then have to use the built in PB system that is independent of GSX 2. Any help would be appreciated.
  8. Is there a list anywhere of which stands at Rome (P3D v.4) have actual working jetways? it seems like when I use TAB+S there's only maybe 25 jetways at the whole airport that are operational, and only like 1 or 2 in the 400 stands. I know 410 works but that's for a heavy aircraft and I usually fly A320/321 out of Rome for Alitalia. Thanks.
  9. Yes, will do. Flying it right now on a long hop from London to Cyprus. No issues so far and I'm about 80% completed.
  10. Hello, I had this happen today. While enroute from EGKK to LIRN, approximately 40 minutes after takeoff from Gatwick the entire aircraft powered down without warning. My specs: AMD Ryzen 2600 @ 3.4 GHZ 32 GB DDR 4 @ 3000 MHZ NVidia GTX 1660 w/ 6 GB 250 GB SSD with P3D v. 4.5 with hotfix 1TB HD Windows 10 Pro Version 10.0.18362 Build 18362 Aerosoft A320/A321 v 1.2.5.0 (Updated to this version on July 31, 2019 Chaseplane version 1.0.43 Experimental (I've been using this version a few weeks and haven't had problems with P3D or the Aerosoft Airbus) Activesky for P3Dv4 version 7070 REX Sky Force 3D (Not sure what version it is? It's set to auto update, and has not done so for a while) Swift Pilot Client version 0.9.1905161012 British Airways Virtual Merlin ACARS version 1.07.06.28 At the time the aircraft powered down I had just opened Google Chrome Version 76.0.3809.100 , maybe 90 seconds earlier? I usually have at least one browser tab open while I fly, if not more for charts, so it's not unusual for me to have Chrome open. As I stated above, I was flying from EGKK to LIRN. I had left Gatwick 40 minutes earlier and was flying on VATSIM at FL310 under the control of EuroControl West. I wasn't even in the P3D window as I was using my browser to search for scenery. But I had my headphones on and I heard the aircraft power down. The checklist and copilot system did not react in any way to the aircraft losing power. I looked at the overhead panel and saw that nothing was illuminated except for the battery indicators, which both showed 28.0 volts, but of course as I tried to repower the aircraft the voltages started decreasing. My first thought was to turn the batteries off and on, then see if I could start the APU. That didn't work. I tried shutting both engine toggles, turning the engine master to start and seeing if the engines would restart, which they did not. I then tried the old Ctrl++Shift+F4 then Ctrl+E to see if the engines would start? They did not. About 1 minute after the aircraft powered down, I did get an audible warning, which I assume was because the aircraft was losing speed and altitude. While there was no caution or warning light visible on the main panel, I knew where the button was and hit it, and the sound stopped. I wanted to see if any other systems worked, so I lowered the landing gear. It lowered just fine, then went back up on my command. But I couldn't think of any other way to power up the aircraft, so I just quit out of P3D. As I wrote in another post, I had never had this happen before. I do not remember if I had loaded the load sheet before starting the checklists? I think I did, but I am not positive. I wondered in the other post if I had run out of fuel and was asking what fuel load the aircraft would have if I had not loaded the load sheet? I thought perhaps it only had the fuel remaining from my previous flight? I did observe a few things that seemed unusual about this flight before the power failure. 1: On takeoff the aircraft seemed to accelerate abnormally fast. It reached V1 and VR about halfway down the runway, which felt early to me. 2: After takeoff, both while I was flying the aircraft and after I turned on the autopilot, it seemed to accelerate very quickly. Within maybe 5 seconds of liftoff I was already hitting the flaps 0 overspeed indicator, which happened so quickly that the copilot/checklist didn't even have a chance to react. Then after I switched on the autopilot the aircraft seemed to climb abnormally fast. It exceeded 6000 FPM at one point, and through most of the climbout it was over 4k/m. 3: The aircraft reached the cruising altitude of FL310 very quickly. I don't even think I had crossed the channel yet. At the time I didn't think much of these issues. I had expected to be almost max weight, but I just assumed that maybe it wasn't as heavy as I thought? Thinking back, perhaps I didn't loadsheet and instead the aircraft was almost empty? I don't know? I've since reloaded the aircraft and everything seems normal, including the fact that it has payload and fuel on board without any input from me. I have not tried to fly it again yet, though I'm going to in a few minutes.
  11. I've been flying the Aerosoft Bus Pro for months and this is the first time I've seen this happen. I was cruising along at FL310, about halfway between Gatwick and Naples, and all of a sudden the aircraft had a complete power failure. The batteries on the overhead indicated 28 volts each, but the APU wouldn't start and I had no way to power the aircraft back up. What I THINK happened is that during pre-flight I may have forgotten to initialize the load sheet? I don't remember for sure. So my guess is, if I didn't load the load sheet that I must have run out of fuel? Can anyone advise what fuel load the plane loads at by default? If it's the fuel and payload from the beginning of the last flight, the last time I loaded the load sheet, it would have had more than enough fuel as that was a 4 hour flight. Is it possible the aircraft loaded with the fuel that remained after that flight? That would certainly make sense. If I didn't run out of fuel, any ideas on what could have happened?
  12. Hello. Could someone please do repaints of the A320 and A321 Professional in Alitalia colors? I'd really appreciate it. Thanks in advance. Here are photos: A320: A321:
  13. No sir, I just started a brand new flight. It was the same aircraft, departure airport, and gate, but I did not load from a saved flight. About to start another flight now. I'll post again if I still have the problem.
