  1. How do you get the values from the fuelplanner into the MCDU3? Are vou using "Generate Loadsheet" and in the MCDU3 "INIT LOADSHEET" or did you manually enter the fuel amount into MCDU3? Second did you load the fuel into the plane using LSK3R or "INSTANT LOAD"? If you use GSX to load the fuel into the plane then the value entered in MCDU3 LSK3L is used......

    btw within the checklist, the ecam window changes to "wheels" when the PNF says "pitch trim".

    And that irrespective of the fact, which window is shown b4.

    On the F/CTL page the pitch trim value is displayed. If in the CL and ViewFocus the wheel page is displayed then it is a bug. But I know that in version to be updated soon the cprrect page will be displayed.

    Regards Rolf 


  3. Sorry I do not see the problem. If you use INIT LOADSHEET in the MCDU3 FUEL AND LOAD MENU then those values are automatically transferred from fuelplanner into the MCDU3. Please check if this works on your system. This trim setting of p.e. UP3.0 is then automatically also used in the MCDU PERF page. Please also check if you there find the same value like in fuelplanner and in MCDU3 FUEL MENU. This trim value then is used by the Checklist

    .

  4. Sorry I do not understand why you cannot see the TAXI CL on the MCDU3 CL MENU. it should be there in orange. Did you try using LSK4R to activate it?

     

    Just one additionally remark: The TAXI CL cannot be activated by using 1 from the keybord. It only automatically activates when the plane moves more than 10 knots. Or by using LSK4R in CL MENU.

  5. In a couple of days a new experimental update will be released which includes major changes of the ViewFocus feature. Enabling this feature (MCDU3 OPTIONS / CHECKLIST / VIEWFOCUS = ON) automatically changes (when the CL is running) the VC view and focus on the just relevant part of the VC. The detailed ViewFocus changes are:

    • Various views have been aligned with checklist items
    • If the aircraft is moving in the Checklist now breaks between various checks / settings are implemented. During those breaks the standard VC view is called (looking outside). This enables the user still to steer the aircraft even when the CL is running.
    • ViewFocus now also works if ChasePlane is used. In such a case just also in the MCDU3 OPTIONS / CHECKLIST menu set VF CHASEPLANE additonally to ON.

    The other changes implemented and released with the new update are:

    CHECKLIST / COPILOT:

    • Timing start DESCENT PREP CL changed (starts 5 NM earlier)
    •  GSX-Pushback – Good Engine Start PF call added and call modified (no GSX confirmation necessary anymore)
    • Parking – Dome lights are automatically switched on, Cones are set and GPU-unit connected
    • Copilot now also sets FO Baro settings

    CABIN CREW ANNOUNCEMENTS:

    • Timing Seatbelt Announcement CLIMB: Adapted to OVHD switch setting

  6. The best would be to prepare a video starting with your last actions before the beep starts ........ One thing I recognized myself in connection with a "beep - signal". During the flight after takeoff at app. 13.000 feet I also heared such a signal. This is a signal from the door (like a bell) that somebody wants to enter the cockpit. Unlock the door and you will hear a flight attendent entering the cockpit and offering coffee.....

  7. Brian,

     

    I think you are talking about the A31X/A32X and not the A330? The Cabin Crew announcement is linked to the seatbelt switch (=OFF)  and the altitude of 10.000 feet. So if one of this conditions is not met then there will be no announcement.......

    Using the mouse and holding down the left mouse button

    Just a simple question: Why holding down the left mouse button? Put the mouse on the clickspot of the trimwheel and then use the mouse wheel to set the trim up or down......

  9. Hi,

    the problem seems to be that you enabled "Show GSX "Fuel and Cargo" dialog during refueling" in the GSX - Customize Aircraft menu. Please disable this dialog because it is not needed or better should not be used in connection with the A330 and GSX fueling. Just use INIT LOADSHEET in the MCDU3 (so that there is a value in FUEL LSK3L) and then start GSX Refueling from the GSX menu.......

    but someone suddenly changing all my lights is even more bothersome.

     

    Please explain this a little bit more what you mean. The only thing regarding cockpit lightning is that DOME lights are automatically switched OFF before TAXI - and that is normal procedure..... All other VC cockpit lights are not touched by the CL.

  11. Thanks. There is no problem to start the engines after PB is completed -GSX proposes such a procedure in Northern Europe quite often in winter due to icing conditions! But now I got you problem e. g. you want to start the TAXI CL quite early e. g. not waiting until the plane has reached a ground speed of 10 knots! This is quite easy: In such a case start the CL manually from the MCDU3 menu..... !

  12. John,

    It seems that there is something wrong with your "autosave" function. Try to save a flight using the P3D function and load it again. You will see that the ECAM fuel amount after loading the flight again is the same then before saving. If not then please send us some screenshots before saving and after loading. Also some information about the model you are using as well as the update version. There is no way to change the FOB during a flight because this would be more than unrealistic.....

    Regards,

    Rolf


  13. Hi,

     

    first let me ask one question from my point of view: What do you mean by "can only get up to GS9-10".? The next question then: Which PB procedure you are using - GSX or the internal MCDU3 one?

    If you are talking about the internal MCDU3 and the minimal distance of 9 feet: This is the minimum distance and this limit comes from P3D and has not been changed since FSX. We cannot do anything to change this because it is out of our responsibility. The only option I suggest is not to start the engines in such a case during PB but after if has been finished and the brakes are set...... I believe then the TXI CL should work........

    If I am wrong please then please let me know the exact procedure you are using (step-by-step) and I will have a look resp. find a solution / work around for you.

    Regards,

    Rolf 


  14. Sorry for maybe the misunderstanding. I thought we were talking about "boarding" crew and pilots and not about "deboarding".

     

    BOARDING of crew and pilots:

    Only implemented in case C&D aircraft state is loaded first. In case of TA is used no boarding of crew and pilots.

    DEBOARDING of crew and pilots:

    When a flight is finished we do not know what the user intends to do e. g. starts another flight (TA) or shuts the plane down to C&D. As in most of the cases the plane will be used again for a TA we therefore generally disabled the deboarding function for crew and pilots. I do not see any possibility to change this!

     

    Regards,

    Rolf


  15. Switching on STROBE LIGHTS depends on the SOP and model used. Those are different from airline to airline. The SOP we use is based on AUTO and on "our" model (in case of AUTO) those lights are switched to ON if the plane is airborne. Sorry, but you have to live with it like it is.

     

    Regards,

    like to keep the view where I choose (At the Flightdeck forward).

    OK, but even in RL if you have to make certain settings or checks you have to look away from your "flightdeck foward" view - only if you do not care and let the CL and CoP run the procedures, you can always look "flightdeck forward" -. But I agree that the current ViewFocus version is a little bit annoying escpecially when the plane is moving and you cannot see what is going on outside. We will release soon an enhanced version of the ViewFocus which solves this problem. If the plane is moving p.e. and the TAXI CL is running then between the various settings / checks always a break is implemented and during that break the view automatically changes to "flightdeck forward". So you are able to steer the plane.......

  17. Gary,

     

    looking through all you threads - even the one you placed on the GSX-forum - I believe that something is completely wrong with your total installation. No one is able to reproduce the issues you mentioned anymore after updating to 1.0.0.7. I stongly suggest to deinstall GSX completely and reinstall it again and then update the GSX installation using FSDT Live Update. 

     

    Rolf


  18. It depends what you are doing after the PARKING CL has been finished. If you wait for 5 minutes then automatically TA state is loaded again...... So there are a lot of options for the pilots and crew boarding as well as deboarding. We decided to handle it as it is now and until now no one has ever had an issue with this......

    Regards,

    Rolf
