  1. Would the A330 be brought to MFS prior to moving on to other models? I'm a huge fan of your A330.
  2. Such an odd issue. I ran the update, and just completed a long-haul from Frankfurt to Seattle on the A330. Personally, I'm very happy as my shutdown sounds worked for the first time! Going to do a Seattle to Honolulu flight soon but so far so good Unfortunately, I see that there are some people that are still having the issue.
  3. Will do once I get home. I'm suspecting there has been an update that I missed. Thanks!
  4. Are you guys on the A330 or A318-21 series? Just trying to figure out if there was an update for the A330 that I might have missed.
  5. Thanks Dave, I hadn't realized that. Well I guess the two are not related lol.
  6. Don't know if this is related but when I start the A330 the proper way using the ENG Start switch and then the master switches, my VA ACARS program shows some oddities. I start with Engine 1, and it comes up and running as normal and this is noted in my VA ACARS program. Once stabilized, I begin the start sequence for Engine 2. When I do this, the ACARS program records that Engine 2 is ON, then it shows Engine 2 OFF, then it shows Engine 2 ON again. So if shutdown sounds are only getting triggered once, maybe something is broken in the formal start sequence coding. When I start the engines using the CTRL+E work-around mentioned previously in this thread, my ACARS program records Engine 1 ON, then Engine 2 ON with no Engine OFF note in between and I will later get the shutdown sounds at my destination. Listed below is how the ACARS program recorded my engine starts and the corresponding times. Time: 12:58:31 Engine 1 is on 12:59:23 Engine 2 is on 12:59:23 Engine 2 is OFF 12:59:23 Engine 2 is on Engine 2 later stabilizes appropriately. So, no clue if this is related to the triggering of shutdown sounds but I figured I'd post it in case it is.
  7. OK. Currently in the A330 now doing a long-haul for my VA but I'll try and make this change for the next flight and report back.
  8. Any word on the part of his question regarding the engine sounds at/above 10,000? I was going to start a topic on that myself but he beat me to it.
  9. I tried loading the 330 directly from the scenario screen like you mentioned using both cold and dark and the default turn-around state. Still, if starting the engines the proper way, I get no shutdown sounds at my destination. Starting them using Control +E and I get shutdown sounds at destination. Although this leads to weird looping start-up sounds. I also don't always get full start-up sounds for the APU. Sometimes they work. Other times I'll start it, switch to external view, and nothing until its fully operational and then boom, the running APU sound pops on out of nowhere. Absolutely ridiculous.
  10. I usually load the Default Turn-Around state but still have no shutdown sounds on arrival. How are you loading the aircraft into the sim? Do you load it from the scenario select screen or wait until you're in your scenario with the default F-22 then load in the Airbus?
  11. I'm not familiar with your initial issue but the engine shutdown issue and the CTRL+E stuff is still being discussed in this thread below (I am one who is experiencing the issue). In my opinion, I think far more people are experiencing it then they realize (they just aren't reporting it). Glad you also mentioned this to them.
