  1. I only fly your A330 but I find that if I don't have the full approach with runway info put into the box, the aircraft skips TOD. So on long hauls, I make sure to fill in everything that I will likely expect on arrival and also set my VA software to Pause at TOD just in case the airbus decides on its own to skip it.
  2. Crazy that a fix hasn't been found yet. This has happened twice to me in the last several weeks, in addition to some other random CTD's. Most unreliable aircraft in my hangar, sad to say.
  3. Thanks for the help! Seems it may be a time consuming task but I'm tempted to give it a shot.
  4. But I want the internal sounds to be used for both internal and when using wing views. If I change the external sounds to viewpoint=1 won't that mean the external sounds will play when inside the flightdeck?
  5. Hi, I know making edits to the aircraft CFG is not officially supported but I'm still going to ask: Is there a way to edit the Aircraft CFG of the A330 so that I at least get the cockpit sounds when using one of the wing views from the viewbar? I understand that this addon is geared towards being in the flightdeck only and it is not in the same price point as some other big name aircraft developers. But it is nice sometimes to have a look from different views and I'd prefer to at least have the flightdeck soundset be present when doing so instead of the external sounds. Is this possible with simple CFG tweaks or would this be a major edit? Thanks for any responses.
  6. I will try that at the end of this flight. Thanks for the tip.
  7. So after the latest update, I am getting these D3D10Warp DLL crashes on the A330. I didn't want to start a whole new thread so I searched around first. But now I basically can't complete any long haul flight for my VA without fear of this aircraft crashing. This is a new issue for me as it was pretty stable previously. Have there been any updates about this?
  8. Would the A330 be brought to MFS prior to moving on to other models? I'm a huge fan of your A330.
  9. 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.
  10. Will do once I get home. I'm suspecting there has been an update that I missed. Thanks!
  11. 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.
  12. Thanks Dave, I hadn't realized that. Well I guess the two are not related lol.
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
  16. 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.
  17. 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?
  18. 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.
  19. Dave, Mathijs mentioned the OS and P3D re-install. As for the LM forums about the engine spool sounds, I believe those were about the known bug when switching camera views that would cause an engine spool up type sound to play. That was fixed with 4.5, I believe. That thread goes back to 2015 which pre-dates p3dv4 so I'm not inclined to think this has anything to do with a Client-only update (which is what I did to answer to your question). It also makes me more hesitant to spend a bunch of time uninstalling and re-installing everything when my sim, aside from this issue with your aircraft, is working like a champ. Like the poster above me, I feel that this is indeed a coding issue. But I am not a programmer so if you say it is not, then ok (being serious, not sarcastic). Maybe Turbine Sound Studios can start looking at the issue again? I saw that mentioned in another thread but I don't know that I saw what came of it? I do appreciate your help thus far.
  20. I have a pretty darn decent PC from Jetline Systems. I'm running P3DV4.5 latest hotfix and everything is working well. I don't have this issue with my PMDG 747-400 nor the -8. I don't have this issue with my FSLABS A320. I don't have this issue with the QW 787. I don't have this issue with the Captainsim 757III. The only one I have this issue with is your A330 so I guess I'll have to just deal with it because if you think I'm going to reinstall the OS and entire sim just for your A330, which I do like BTW, you are out of your mind. Hopefully others come forward and actually start reporting the issue because experiencing and reporting are two different things. I'm done with this now. Like I said, I hope it doesn't occur (on my system) in the FS2020 version. Have a pleasant day you all.
