  1. Well spotted, thank you, downloading and installing now
  2. It hasn't stopped me grabbing the twotter, I'm downloading that as I type this, but have you had time to think any more about this ? I'm hoping - because Aerosoft have a good reputation for this - that if you can do anything it'll be a bundle price for new twotter owners and a discount on Antactica for existing twotter owners, otherwise I'll pick it up next sale Speaking of Aerosoft's good reputation, as I was buying the twotter I had the option to add a donation to something. The only information you give is "Guder-Donation, click here for more information" which didn't grab me but I clicked it anyway out of curiosity and good lord I had no idea ... Aerosoft you deserve a round of applause for that, especially "The money will FULLY be forwarded ..." which is so unusual these days. So I added a donation You really need a better hook for that on the checkout page, it is a good thing you are doing and "Guder-Donation, click here for more information" literally says nothing except "would you like to give us some extra money?"
  3. Popped up on facebook, along with a comment 2 mins after you posted it asking about the xbox release 😄 😄 😄
  4. Ah, gotcha. Could you do it without coupled VNAV following the snowflake and the blue dot on the PFD ? I must try that this evening ! Cheers !
  5. Puuhbear I got the impression it's more about having equipment that will tell you when it's not where it should be - the RNP specs say it has to be on point 95% of the time AND it has to tell you when it's not. RNAV doesn't have that requirement, so I presume RNP is used to basically poke aircraft through smaller holes where early corrections if it's not 100% are important. Crabby thanks for the tip about curved segments, that explains a whole lot about why mine was doing what it did. But I still don't see why (in the sim, and if the RNP approach has no curved segments) the CRJ can't follow a vertical profile. The RNP rules seem to be more about better reporting than greater accuracy, I couldn't see anything about you must be able to go up and down faster ?
  6. I was wondering what was so different about RNP approaches to warrant this warning in the pinned topic - "The best advice is to use current charts, and if you see a particular approach marked RNP then “proceed with caution”. Either avoid selecting the approach in the sim, or if you do load it, be aware that the aircraft will likely not fly it correctly. It may track the horizontal profile - but it definitely will not automatically descend on the vertical profile the way an RNP-capable aircraft will." I have tried RNP approaches in the CRJ before realising that they were a problem, in fact that's what started me looking at this, and what's described there is exactly what happened. So I looked at the difference between RNAV and RNP and as far as my civilian brain can tell it comes down to RNP is RNAV with higher accuracy requirements. I can't work out how "you need more accurate gps gear" translates into "sorry eh, not gonna fly that vertical profile", obviously I'm not getting something, can anyone it sum it up ? Cheers
  7. Sorted. Here's the flight plan I used : After importing it into the CRJ I chose the ELRU2A star into NZQN, with the RNAVZ approach to rwy 05, took out the discon and duplicate that this created, and there we have it. If I choose the IBABU transition I get the extra line, if I choose VECTORS it works as intended. And the difference is that nice sweeping curve that makes this into an RNP approach - which the number 1 pinned post in this forum says the CRJ is not equipped to do, weirdness will happen if you try. Told you, pilot error
  8. Thanks for that, I can stop wondering what I've done wrong I've used that downloaded (simbrief) flight plan a few times and this pops up every time, I'll try entering the route manually and see if it does it then too. Cheers
  9. Jonas, I think the original question (which people have been asking for quite a while across different versions of the CRJ) is this : On the real CRJ, the information shown in the VNAV window on the MFD includes the vertical speed required to hit the next altitude restraint, e.g. -1700 in the photo of a real CRJ. In the VNAV window on the MFD in 'our' CRJ this is missing as per the screenshot I just took during a descent using advisory VNAV, all we get is the snowflake next to the altimeter strip showing the descent path and the blue dot on the VSI showing the target vertical speed (approx -1000 fpm in this case). The target vertical speed is shown in the FMC, how do we make it appear here like it does in the real plane ? Querer, the short answer seems to be that you can't, follow the snowflake like it's a glideslope and watch the blue dot on the VSI for an idea of the descent rate you need. Interesting, and credit where it's due : the photo was pinched from the first post in this thread from 5 months ago asking the exact same thing, my link is to a reply from Matthew2312 talking about why the PFD indicators (snowflake and blue dot) don't always match the MFD indicator (target rate as a number) and why the snowflake is generally better to use.
  10. So, this extra line on the map display ... It doesn't appear at low zoom levels, it moves with me as I move along the track, I don't have a 2nd flight plan loaded, the alternate airport is the other side of the destination, and there's nothing odd going on in the flight plan as far as I can see. It looks almost as though the display is trying to show two maps at once. I'll fully accept it's pilot error, but I can't think what I might have done 😕 Can anyone who knows what they're doing with this tell me what I did ? :) Cheers
  11. Ok I've installed it, once I got past all the advertising it detected MSFS and said the CRJ is available but not installed. It detected P3D and the P3D A320 family (which it said it didn't support) and it didn't find my P3D A330. There doesn't seem to be any way to add existing addons that it hasn't detected so I guess I need to download the CRJ yet again to use it and use the ASUpdater for the P3D planes. Aah, no. From my point of view - I literally only want something that will reliably update the CRJ if it's not in the community folder - it seems like far more trouble than it's worth. Much easier and much less advertising just to uninstall / download / install a new CRJ then move it out of the community folder when there are updates.
  12. I looked at it but not for long, with that huge list of things it supports it seemed overkill for just updating a couple of Aerosoft planes, a bit like downloading a complete windows install just to get a couple of fonts. Give it a try you think ? Cheers
  13. I did search, but I haven't seen this particular thing raised. I moved the CRJ to a new location when I started using the addons linker. I just thought about updates for the first time so tried to run the ASUpdater which failed, when I looked the folder where it should have been was more or less empty. So I uninstalled the CRJ, downloaded and installed it again, moved it from the community folder to my addons library folder, then ran the ASUpdater which works now and reports the CRJ is up to date and in my community folder. Umm, nope. Is there a way I can tell the updater where the CRJ actually is ? I'm a bit concerned that if I update it now I'll get a new CRJ folder in the community folder and have to merge it manually with the real CRJ folder which isn't a problem, but 'replace existing files' won't help with files that are supposed to get deleted not replaced. Thanks
  14. I want to exit the A464 airway there. I may have found the answer a few minutes ago in a post from around April on the Navigraph forum - I had to do a manual download of the airac for the CRJ, that installer had the option of installing into MSFS, so I did that and the CRJ now knows about SCOTT. I can't see that anything looks even slightly different on the FMS status pages, the navdata still shows the same validity dates but the CRJ airac has definitely changed because it knows about SCOTT now - it must pick the data validity dates from the sim files rather than its own files, traps for young players ...
  15. This is probably a noob question but I only signed up for Navigraph Charts yesterday and I'm still figuring it out. I'm trying to set up an arrival at YBCG approaching from the Tasman and using the SCOTT intersection. The current airac is 2110.1 Little Navmap and Charts are running on a different PC to the sim (msfs from steam, crj from aerosoft). The FMS Data Manager says Little Navmap is using 2110.1, I presume Charts always uses the latest data, and they can both see SCOTT. On the sim PC, the Navigraph Navdata Centre shows 2110.1 and shows the CRJ as an addon package, but the CRJ has never heard of SCOTT. Is there something else I need to update ? Thanks !
