!! Windows 7 no longer supported !!

As Microsoft will stop supporting Windows 7 on Jan 20th we will be unable to test any of our
products on that platform. It may work, or it may not, but no guarantees from our side.

  1. I had the old Airbus Extended back in FSX and enjoyed the view system. I know the Aerosoft philosophy and modeling the interior cabin/interior soundset but it was nice to at least have realistic passenger views of the engines/before wing/after wing etc. On the A330, however, the views are entirely different from what I remember quite honestly, they are not very realistic at all. For example the "Engine View" is at an incredibly low level, almost between where the cabin would be and the cargo hold. Is there a reason for this instead of modelling the more standard/realistic views?
  2. I have been following the progress of the A330 since about 2015 and I was well aware that this was still a bit of a work-in-progress type of release. I applaud you folks at Aerosoft for being upfront about that. I am also enjoying the aircraft greatly for the most part! The A330 with Trent engines is probably my favorite aircraft and I'm very glad you folks developed it! That all being said, I quickly noticed that I don't have any engine shutdown sounds (along with other sound issues). I created a topic about it and was eventually made aware by another forum member that this missing shutdown sound issue/bug is not new and has been around for a while. I did some searching and sure enough, this bug goes back about 5 years. There are multiple topics about it spanning from the 320 series (32bit) to the 320Pro to now on the A330PRo. So when I stated that I was losing confidence, it was because I had learned that this issue wasn't new and still after all this time, this issue hasn't been resolved. I certainly hope it gets fixed soon. There is a semi-workaround posted on the second page of the topic directly above and it seems there may be an issue related to the Ignition switch? For what it is worth, I hope you all had a good Christmas!
  3. There seems to be LOTS of sound related issues with these Aerosoft busses. I'm missing the sound you describe, I have no APU spool up or down sounds, and I have no engine shutdown sounds. Hopefully they get these issues sorted out although the more I look into things, the less confident I am that this happens.
  4. Jan, Thank you for this little work around. It is not ideal to have to start the engines this way, but this worked for me on the A330. And as you stated, hopefully this clues Aerosoft into what could be causing this issue. Thanks again!
  5. As far as my set up goes, it is correct and functions as it should with the FSLabs A320, PMDG 747-400/-8, Quality Wings 787, and the Captain Sim 757III. The only issues I have with reversers not working and, on occasion, the speed breaks not working, are with the A330. And as stated, sometimes they work as they should and others, there is no response unless I hit F2.
  6. I'm going to try this with the A330 as I have ZERO shutdown sounds after my flights. A little troubling that this issue goes back so far and is still unresolved...
  7. I just had this CTD on my flight from KPDX-PHNL. Here is my event log. Like the poster above, I was clearing waypoints and inserting a Direct-To when I had the CTD. This is the second one I've had out of my 15 or so flights so it doesn't happen often but it does occur.

  8. This particular issue doesn't bother me either but I think it is emblematic of some of the sound issues that this aircraft has. As you pointed out in my thread about the missing shutdown sounds, that is an issue that apparently goes back like 5 years! They have the beginnings of a really awesome aircraft here but they need to tidy up these various issues. Albeit small, these random sounds during the takeoff roll need to be addressed.
  9. You and I both! There have been quite a few requests for a Hawaiian Airlines paint and I know at least one is being worked on, hopefully they start to pop up soon!
  10. I think some of the sounds need to be worked on a little bit as far as what gets triggered at what point (or not getting triggered at all in some cases).
  11. I think they mentioned that they were going to include it at some point and it would play if you were not using the semi-intelligent copilot.
  12. The views are different than they were before. The "engine views" for example are from an odd, low-level, angle that does not even remotely resemble a realistic view from the cabin. And there are no over-wing views in the bar either. It was mentioned in an earlier thread here.
  13. Lol. Personally, I prefer the one on the top (background) better. But, in all honesty, once in the sim, I'd be fine with either. I'll just be glad to have an American Airlines paint.
