!! Windows 7 no longer supported !!

As Microsoft will stop supporting Windows 7 on Jan 20th we will be unable to test any of our
products on that platform. It may work, or it may not, but no guarantees from our side.

  1. Perhaps the air hostess and her "activity" as an expansion pack in case she forgets the coffee
  2. Looks like someone didn't run the pre-flight checklist item "coffee quantity". Luckily I don't drink coffee, but rumor has it that item is more important than fuel quantity on many airlines
  3. I will also stress the need again for anything you add to make it optional (unless it's Airbus system critical and with that I mean in terms of flying the airplane). If you can't disable it I am not interested and rather keep the extra performance. My FPS did go slightly below 30 at KBOS standing at the gate at turn around state
  4. The question is how it got their, since a) I installed the A330 after the smaller busses and b) I was already using the FuelPlanner for the A330 without issues UPDATE: Reinstalling did the trick. Still a mystery how the old one got there in the first place. Oh well doesn't matter right now
  5. I will try that EDIT: I decided to reinstall the A330 to try to solve the FuelPlanner issue as well. My guess is that might help with the AP
  6. Hey there, I just noticed that my left side (HDG and SPD) are blank and the right side is cut off. I am pretty sure they were functioning normal after update. The only other change I did was install the trial flight model fix, which I then reverted back. Same problem.
  7. Yes I can confirm that FPS are quite excellent, although I haven't done some real benchmark tests (CYYZ, KBOS, etc..). And I too will join those that say I want optional additions, so if you add something add a toggle feature, otherwise leave it as it is. I want to be able to switch off those additions in case I encounter situations where FPS does go downhill. I would love to see snow on the windshields and maybe foggy windows like PMDG does. I remember standing at the gates at KMSP with the 747 and the immersion was unbelievable when seeing snow building up on the windows. Perhaps some dynamic dirt as well?!
  8. Already done that. I was then able to open the fuelplanner which showed the A318... when switching to the A330 I got another error message.. I was able to ignore it and put in some numbers, which was recognized by the aircraft then loading it in. Unfortunately I then encountered another issue with the MCP, but that's for another thread (unless I can find if someone else has posted that). Anyway upon returning to the fuelplanner I get the same error message I had to begin with.
  9. I am also getting an error message when trying to open the fuel planner. Only thing I have changed was installing the temporary flight model fix. I then reverted back to the original file with no help. I also deleted the FuelPlanner saved settings file, I could open the fuel planner again, but when selecting the A330 I got another "force quit" error message (which can be ignored). When I leave it at the A330 I get the same error message again as seen below
  10. I am not sure we are facing the same "issue" here but my A330 will also start rolling at idle upon releasing the brakes. The acceleration is slow but steady and won't stop requiring a regular application of brakes. My hardware throttles match the VC throttles. I will say that I had light loads due to short flights but it seems kind of strange Airbus would design an aircraft that needs regular braking activity during taxi. The B77L even at light loads would slowly bleed off GS at idle. I can't make any claims about realism, but the A330 is the first payware level jetliner that needs brakes during taxi. I always imagined if engines were that powerful to get the plane rolling at idle the GS would level off at below 10 kts or so.
  11. It's surely not un-flyable, but I too look forward for changes to the better. I don't know if the current aileron input logic is realistic or not. Perhaps a lot of P3D limitations, but I'll take a better responsiveness nonetheless if it can be achieved without causing other FDE aspects to break. Perhaps MSFS will provide a much better environment for this A330 should Aerosoft decide to bring it over.
  12. I will add myself to the list of those that notice slow response from the aircraft after input has been made. At first I thought it might be the larger aileron travel on the honeycomb yoke, but there certainly is a delay. The sidestick animation corresponds perfectly to my yoke inputs. While I think with a little getting used to hand flying is possible it sure feels a lot different than all the other planes I have (including the Aerosoft A320) and there isn't much difference among the others. I think the pitching thing is due to auto-trim? Perhaps switching FBW off might help for the time being?
  13. I don't think so as navigraph works fine for me. My thoughts are the A330 ships with the navdata pro set and if you want to use navigraph you'd need to update it for the A3XX
  14. I just did some fooling around and I think you can get used to it quickly. It will certainly pose a challenge when landing in Kai Tak (one of my planned flights with the A330), but I am sure it ain't impossible hehe 😉
