  1. If you haven't already, please fly the full tutorial flight exactly and report back if you have the same behavior. Before you fly the tutorial and unless you bought it through the in-sim Marketplace, please ensure only the CRJ is in your Community folder. This limits the possibility some misbehaving add-on isn't the culprit. Utterly unrelated add-ons/liveries/far-distant airports have been know to cause issues and not just with the CRJ. Also, when you reply, please list the controllers you're using.
  2. While this is indeed the best section in the forum for this issue, a related thread in the General section would be better to provide feedback in and find suggested work-arounds. I'll close this one so all the reports and feedback are in one location, and I'll also provide a link to this thread since it still has value.
  3. Great job, Tom, and a real service to the community. We'll leave this open for another week or 10 days to provide an opportunity for further reports.
  4. I think he means which buttons are pushed in (=active) and which aren't. Pushed in, only the grey collar shows, when out, the collar is white on the bottom and grey on top. In real plane, they're a sort of toggle. Push the button once and it reverses setting, push it again and it returns to the previous position.
  5. There's already a thread on this issue, so no need for another one. Please track it here:
  6. I thought I'd remembered it was some super minor single item to accommodate an update of something else. I looked for it last evening but couldn't find it. As I recall, it had nothing to do with expanding capability or anything like that, so IMO, not worth worrying about.
  7. Here are links to the dedicated support sections for the Twin Otter, one for the MFSMSFS/MFS2020 area and one for the FSX (the old one)/P3D, since you didn't say which version you're asking about: MFS - Aerosoft Twin Otter - AEROSOFT COMMUNITY SERVICES P3D/FSX - Twin Otter Extended - AEROSOFT COMMUNITY SERVICES (Note: This is only for the Twin Otter Extended for FSX/P3D. The earlier product is one level back under Aircraft General). Please take a look at the forum structure and repost in the correct one. Thanks!

  9. Sentence by sentence: OP's opinion. The example given in the third post above and the third bullet below explains why others disagree. Another misunderstanding or unrealistic expectation by the OP. As noted above, it came with a nav database current at release of the CRJ. Nav databases incorporate changes every 56 days (or occasionally sooner if needed) and updates are available for purchase from Aerosoft or Navigraph and run something over $70/year. Did you seriously expect that to be provided free with the CRJ? Nope. OP appears to misunderstand the meaning of "expect" in the context of a clearance, as noted by replies. Altering restrictions automatically entered by the nav database for any one of a number of reasons is part of real life IFR. Even the default Cessna 172/G1000 (or the mods available) requires this. If you find having to alter an entry in the FMS to accommodate this is "annoying," it seems likely nothing with a programable GPS or an FMS will make you happy.
  10. Unlocked (again). Let's ALL try to be civil. No need to restart old arguments, as everything that needs to be said on both sides (and a great deal more) has already been said. Thank you!

  13. Fulvio, I understand your decision, as it's a logical reaction to this mystery. I trust you're installing/uninstalling through Aerosoft One, which makes it pretty easy to do so, especially if you have a decent internet connection. As for the future update, there's a good sized one coming up at some point (when is not yet announced), so when it drops, it will be well advertised and I hope you'll try the CRJ again. You're a pleasure to work with through this, even though we didn't get it solved. I appreciate your courtesy. Best Regards, Herman
  14. Hmmm...I just tried mine and nothing like what you described with the HUD. I tried switching it between up and down several times and it moved and stayed stable throughout. Some basic info is needed to help you further: please reply with your system specs including OS/RAM/VRAM, and source of your sim and the CRJ (MS Store/Steam/Aerosoft/in-sim Marketplace as appropriate). This isn't all needed to help you here, but it's good to include if you have future issues you need help with. The basic troubleshooting steps are: Empty out your Community folder except for the CRJ; optionally and if you know where to find it, delete the content.xml file which the sim will rebuild on launch (for a non-steam installation, it's at C:\Users\[your user name]\AppData\Local\Packages\Microsoft.FlightSimulator_8wekyb3d8bbwe\LocalCache ; reboot the computer, then fire up the sim with just your throttle, flight controls and rudder pedals if you have them. No VR goggles or other hardware controllers. As with system specs, you might not need to do all the steps I listed, but doing so ensures you have a baseline sim so as to isolate out any interfering add-ons or hardware. With the sim open, go through all your bindings on every peripheral (yes, even mouse and keyboard) to look for anything having to do with the HUD. Then go to your favorite airport with the CRJ starting on the runway (to avoid missing a checklist item) and work the HUD up and down to see what gives. If the problem seems to be gone, then shut down the sim, add any other hardware if any you use and repeat. If that still has the HUD doing what it's supposed to, add in whatever you took out of your Community folder one at a time, checking the sim for a stable HUD each time. This is all time consuming, but the surest way to isolate any software and/or hardware issues. Report back on what you learn when you can. Best wishes.
  15. Availability of the update to EDDK, ENVA, and LLBG was announced on the Orbx website earlier today: [announcement] Aerosoft updates - EDDK, ENVA & LLBG airports - Partner Previews and Announcements - Orbx Community and Support Forums (orbxdirect.com)
  16. Thanks for sharing what you learned so far. I've never experienced that before either. I'll have to give mine a test this evening. I definitely didn't have this after SU9, and I do have a switch on my Honeycomb Bravo mapped to the HUD up-and-down.
  17. Could be a mapping issue. Do you have any key-binds associated with it?
  18. Looks like time for another time out for this thread. It will be unlocked once everyone has had time to cool off and simply patiently await work and reports on progress. No news is by no means an indication that nothing is happening on fixes.
  19. Paderborn airport is indeed where the home office is, but as with so many businesses now, a lot of the work is done remotely. You may have read a tornado was also reported near Lippstadt, which is about the same distance on the other side of the airport from Paderborn. They both sound bad, with numerous injuries and property damage. Let's see what someone there has to say.
  20. Title edited to ask a question instead of seeming to offer help.
  21. Please post in the Aerosoft One support area. This area of the forum is only for support of the DVD based version of the sim itself. and not add-ons.
