Support overload. We are currently seeing 65% more demand for support then we normally see. We can only assume this is because more people are at home due to the corona crises. Our complete support staff is online and they are working flat out, but it will take some days before we can scale up resources. Please be patient.

  1. Michael, thanks for the quick reaction too. I wonder how nobody has brought this up earlier.. maybe there are differences in the sim version etc? anyway, it works well now, thanks! Honestly, I hope to see a fuel crossfeed one day but the airplane is really fun to manage. I did an approach in IMC into MMMX yesterday, flying there from Sint Martin.. certainly a new experience after all that 737/A320 management. It's a little faster than a C172 Using 4 independant throttles that's simply an amazing aircraft!

    CG issues

    Ok, thank you. I'll do that.

    CG issues

    Hello everyone, yesterday I got the DC-8 and I wonder about the payload manager and the CG. I'll attach a screenshot, it tells more than a thousand words.. The CG is far to the back, it actually is higher than the stabilizer setting table allows it. All I have done was to install the aircraft and load it up. However I have to stick with version 2.0 as with the latest update 2.1 I can't move the stab trim. (I have written about it in the other thread). For what it's worth the P3D payload manager shows the CG well in the middle, even slightly forward. Looking at the payload stations it Station 3, 7, 12 and 16 in use. I can put all the weight of 13000lbs to the front cargo section to get a CG of 27% MAC. Is there something I miss??
  4. Can't edit, so a third post: I'm back to v2.0.0.. The trim works now, using v2.1 it does not. Not using the P3D controls either.
  5. Which dll.xml do you use? there's one in C:\ProgramData\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v4 and one in C:\Users\name\AppData\Roaming\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v4... no comment on that, I've resigned to understand that. What would be the entry? So I could enter it manually, as I don't see any Aerosoft entries in neither file.. Weird enough I have an XMLTools64 entry in BOTH files.. everything else is different. Thanks
  6. Hi Michael I just attempt my first flight with the DC-8 and have no stab trim either. I do have the trim buttons on my yoke set to elev trim up and down via the FSUIPC buttons (right side) as I am absolutely no fan of assigning hardware controls via the P3D controls (I use to have a custom hardware setup - joysticks and yoke - for every aircraft I fly and FSUIPC and Linda manage this quite well in opposite of P3D. Does the stab trim HAVE to be set via P3D to work? Also I have seen a dll.xml install failure during setup as it couldn't find the location for whatever reason..I'm yet to understand all those locations where P3D puts its files.. But everything else of the DC8 seems to work just fine.. Thanks, Marc Edit: This is the error. I have my P3D installed into my P: drive (SSD) while the dll.xml file is located on the main system drive c:. could this be the problem?
  7. with the AirBerlin 320 sitting there most likely ORBX
  8. The performance is fine, you did a great job on this topic, but: OMG please don't put a cartoon there.. There is so much left out in an Aerosoft version of an aircraft (absolutely no offence, I know the pricing) that someone sitting there who would be within your pricing level would NOT increase any reaslim.. I was about to ask how to stop these annoying automatic tables to extend and found that idea with a 3D figure being placed there?! Without the option to throw him out?? Please don't do that. This simulator simply can't handle that. The only acceptable "co-pilot" was Heidi in the A2A Cub. She didn't touch anything, was seen mainly from behind and just made strange comments. But a natural looking and moving co-pilot would kill more than 5FPS. Probably more than the airbus. Why stop the automatic tables? Because the airplane won't extend them on its own. Leave them clickable and that's the maximum realism you look for. I wanted to do some touch and goes and those tables and foot rest coming out at FL70 drove me crazy. The airplane is made really well, not much to complain about considering that it's been released 2 days ago and your quick reaction on the flight controls. But neither do I understand nor do I share the Aerosoft humour of getting a cup of coffee (without a 3D FA entering the flight deck) or similar things. Sometimes it's really better to add an "off" button. Same goes to the EFB. It's pretty much useless and probably eating up frames when one has an iPad with charts and weather on it and just hinders me to click the nosewheel disc button. A possibility to simply dismount it would really be appreciated, I'm sure the textures are modules that can be attached or removed easily via the CDU.
  9. Okay, I've played a little with the panel states. The first time it was set to Take off state as default (I think, You may know it better) and I set the DEF to Turn Around State and activated the CaD state. This might have spooled the system up a little and it expected the flaps to be set for TO. I restarted P3D and the airplane loaded up in Turn Around state and now, when I selected CaD and turned on the BATs it worked fine. You are informed and I have a working airbus I think this can be closed, lol.
  10. Good evening everyone, I've used the A319 Professional on P3Dv4 before, however I installed it on P3Dv4.4 (had a clean instal of P3D) a few days ago together with FS2Crew and wanted to fly it now. I loaded it up in Cold and Dark state to check its proper function and turned on the batteries. As soon as I did that the TO CONF warning rang telling me that the flaps were not in TO config. Of course not, they are up. The same happens when my FS2C FO turns on the bats. Some functions have been assigned via LINDA like the AP disc or ATHR off buttons. Nothing except the standard flight axes have been assigned via FSUIPC. Have I forgot something? Or might there be a (known) issue? Any help would be highly appreciated. Thank you Marc
  11. Hi Tom, yes the product pages are well described, but I also have a (maybe silly) question regarding this topic. I have the "old" "Airbus A318/A319" AND the A320/321 but as seperate purchases. My understanding is that I can now use the upgrade service from the A318/319 to the 318/319 professional and later I can use the same for the 320/21 to the professional version but I can NOT use an upgrade service to the bundle. Is that correct? At least the discount field doesn't recognize the serials for the prof bundle but does for the sole prof A318/19. Cheers, Marc
