  1. Excellent information, guys - many thanks for your informative replies. While we're on the subject of lighting, I must say that I'm absolutely stunned by the overall quality of the cockpit lighting and texturing inside the A330 - it really is a thing of beauty. Respect to the guys who developed this superb aircraft. Regards
  2. Hello Just purchased the A330 for P3DV4.5 and have a small problem in so far as I seem unable to turn down the intensity of the cockpit flood lighting. According to this posting, I should be able to adjust the intensity using the the "Flood Lt" knob on the pedestal. However, no matter how much I adjust it, the flood lighting intensity will not reduce ! Any help much appreciated Regards Edit: Discovered that the flood lighting stays on max if you also have the Dome lighting set to 'STORM'. Reduce this setting, then the flood light intensity can then be adjusted via the pedestal knob. Assuming that this is correct , just wondering why this should be ?
  3. A quick 5 minute look found this, not 'totally' identical perhaps, but you get the picture? Regards
  4. Will said update be applied to the A320 family as these also suffer from the same issues ? Regards
  5. Perhaps it might be prudent in the products' list of hardware / software requirements, to state exactly how these 'weird things' could/would manifest themselves if the user's PC cannot hold > 18fps ? Then they could make an informed decision whether or not to purchase.
  6. I have to say that I most certainly do see this issue with the A320 and had convinced myself to just live with it. However, this topic is a bit of a revelation for me as this proves that it's not just down to my system. Yes, I can hold 28fps for 95% of the time, but when I can't (for reasons other posters have stated), I wouldn't expect my a/c to basically 'turn turtle' on me and give up !!!
  7. That shouldn't be a problem. However, before doing so, please could you confirm that or are compatible with P3D V4.4 as I've yet to install V4.5 ? Kind regards
  8. And in my original posting I wrote: "After loading a saved flight on the A319, all system settings appear fine except that the MCDU data has not been recovered and has defaulted back to its reset state..." The important word being, "except", which is pretty conclusive that the systems are fine, but the MCDU data is not. So I'm not totally sure why the question regarding the systems was ever asked in the first place ? However, to prevent this discussion from going round in ever decreasing circles, the issue is with the MCDU not recovering the saved flight data. Kind regards
  9. Hello I've no idea why you took it upon yourself to close my thread as it is most definitely not solved. You asked me if the systems loaded up ok after 30sec and I answered yes. However, the MCDU data does not. No where in my reply did I state that the MCDU data had loaded correctly. It still resets and loses the flight data. I had already stated in my original post that the systems eventually loaded ok, but that the MCDU did not. So I'm not sure where you got the idea from that everything was ok, including the MCDU, after 30secs ? So please, could you reopen the original thread ? Kind regards
  10. Hello Version And yes, after about 30secs, everything is normal apart from the bizarre temperature reading as mentioned in the OP.
  11. Hello After loading a saved flight on the A319, all system settings appear fine except that the MCDU data has not been recovered and has defaulted back to its reset state and engine temperature in the lower ECAM display is now being displayed in what appears to be scientific notation, eg, "9.3823344E>07" After reading this posting, I can confirm that all 5 of the relevant saved files are correctly located. Have tried a couple of times with no success. Thanks
  12. The cabin announcement @21mins is the standard Aif France announcement, "Consignes de sécurité Air France - Bienvenue à bord" and can be acquired at YouTube as an MP4 then converted to a WAV using somthing like "Audacity". Have done it myself and it works a treat. One thing, you may have to search for a method online to download YouTube videos as this can't be done 'as standard'...
  13. Hello Airway1FROM=SFD Airway1TO=DRAKE Airway2=UL151 Airway2FROM=DRAKE Airway2TO=SITET Airway3=UN859 Airway3FROM=SITET Above is the first few waypoints from a FP between EGKK and LEPA generated using FSC. What I'm attempting to do is insert a PLACE/BEARING/DISTANCE waypoint before the SFD VOR as per, "SFD/164/13". When, I LSK on the SFD waypoint after entering "SFD/164/13", I'm presented with the, "DUPLICATE NAMES" page giving me 2 options for SFD. However, after selection the correct, I'm returned to the flightplan, but the waypoint has not been accepted. Looking into this further, I've discovered that I can only manually enter VOR waypoints if there are no duplicates in the database, for example, "MAY". Any VOR that has a duplicate (and takes me to the "DUPLICATE NAMES" page) is ignored. To prove this, I cleared the original "SFD" waypoint and are now unable to reinstate it as it has a duplicate ? Any help much appreciated.
  14. I did begin to wonder that. LEPA pro (as stated) P3DV4.3 (sorry, my bad) Thanks
