  1. Just thought I would add another data point here regarding the A320 Pro in P3D v5. As with the other reports here, I'm also seeing the random (every 2-10 seconds or so) flickering of the INTEG and FLODD lights and the largely ineffectual dome light during daytime. For what it's worth, I see no discernible difference between fresh shaders and envshade. Understood that an update is theoretically in progress and will take time. A bit annoyed that I needed to clean out and redo my system (couldn't complete a flight without a BSDO) and figured there was no sense reinstalling v4 and c
  2. In an attempt to root out a possible issue on my end, I reinstalled the buses (A318-21 and 330; with Windows virus protection turned off), repaired all the C++ libraries and ran the Netfx repair tool. The issue still persists identical to as I reported it above.
  3. Since installing the latest full build ( of the A320, I've noticed that the outer COM dials won't "turn over", i.e. when standby is set to 136.xx, dialing up on the outer dial will not cause the number to cycle over to 118; likewise I can't cycle down to 136 from 118. The minor dial will roll over, i.e. 124.95 -> 125.00 -> 125.05 but again won't cycle past 136.xx or 118.xx. I also seem to be seeing the 8.33 spacing, i.e. x.000 -> x.005 -> x.010, etc.; which I didn't see before this last update. I did a quick search and didn't see that anybody else has reported
  4. That sounds like the same issue - when the issue appears during climb, Managed Mode will still honor the correct speed (that shown on the MCDU) but while in cruise it will honor the incorrect PFD-displayed speed. Selected Mode and manual flight will work perfectly OK of course, you just need to have your speed target in mind since the bug will not be correctly set. This all seems to go away when the descent phase is entered - I don't believe I've ever encountered the issue then, while it seems to occur quite frequently especially during climb.
  5. Another takeoff from KJFK, and another instance of the managed speed issue immediately on climb out and persisting through cruise. This again occurred on another departure from KJFK on the JFK5 departure. I followed the same procedure as in the previous flight, excepting that I did not change the acceleration height this time (kept it at the default 1500' AGL). Flight Plan: KJFK F360 DCT WAVEY DCT EMJAY J174 SWL DCT CEBEE DCT WETRO DCT ILM AR15 HIBAC DCT ORL DADES6 KTPA Commanding 204 kts on climb - MCDU PERF calling for 306/0.79 as appropriate.
  6. While the F-PLN page shows the correct times for flights crossing 0000z, I've noticed the times shown on the various PERF pages, FUEL PRED and EQUI-TIME POINT are still incorrect, as in too high by 1440. PERF CRZ (PERF DES, FUEL PRED and E-T POINT are similar; I noticed it too late to check PERF CLB) F-PLN for comparison:
  7. FYI, I just ran the update for the A318-A319 and A320-A321. They both ran normally, but I now have a "Aerosoft A318-A319 Professional Base" folder in my A320/SimObjects/Airplanes folder. All of the files contained therein have the same modified dates as the files within that A318-A319 folder that I assume they were intended to go into (so in other words, the update seems to have been applied to the A318/A319). However, the same-named files in the corresponding A320/A321 folder appear not to have been updated (modified date 23 Dec). Can I safely assume that the files i
  8. I've noticed what I believe to be the same behavior in the past - posted in this thread from a while back (with some pictures). For example, the OOSHN5 arrival into KBOS tends to give it fits every time - my particular experience is coming in from the SW (MERIT transition) and landing south or west.
  9. More of a curiosity than a problem - the rendering of the weather radar varies depending on whether it is set to manual vs. automatic for a given tilt setting. Is there a reason or mechanic behind this? (Frankly, I think the "manual" looks better!) Examples: Automatic: Manual: ...and a nice comparison as the update sweeps across after changing the setting:
  10. I did have this error recur with the A330 on a recent flight and I've captured logs and a save made before the error but haven't had the opportunity to test repeatability from the save. I'll follow up on that later. Back to the A320 - I just had every flavor (that I've ever experienced so far) of this error both during climb (invalid but ignored target) and cruise (invalid but honored target) I was able to repeat on the same flight plan. (I only repeated because an unrelated issue prompted me to just want to start the flight over.) Flight Plan: KJFK F360 DCT WAVEY DC
  11. Not to pile on a dead horse, but I've seen this behavior as well (using KGS) with the MCDU fuel remaining at destination. Generally speaking, though, the actual fuel burn is consistent and within a few percent of SimBrief from what I've experienced. For instance, on a CYYZ-CYVR flight (with IIRC), my block fuel (from SimBrief with a 1.10 fuel factor) was 33400 kgs. The screenshot was captured 1:16 into the flight (3:15 to go) with a SimBrief EFOB prediction of 21.7k-23.2k kgs. As you can see, the ECAM FOB is slightly high but nearly dead on, while the MCDU is way off. It
  12. Night mode for the EFF PDF viewer on the EFB - It's still black text on white (and thus very difficult to read) even when the EFB as a whole is in night mode. (I posted this in another thread.) More variants as resources permit! i.e engines, -200, etc.
  13. Lately I haven't been using autosave but I'll turn it on for my next A330 flight. Should be sometime this week. Way back (somewhere earlier in this thread probably) when I was having these issues on the A320 I seem to recall doing just that and finding it wasn't always repeatable. Could it be a simple PFD issue? The actual autoflight does not honor it (at least not in these instances, as opposed to the instances during cruise where it does) and the correct data always shows in the MCDU PERF pages.
  14. I was able to complete my flight last night without any further GWCG anomalies. It varied throughout the flight (going as high as 38% but never going red) but finished on the ground at 30.5%.
  15. The "Briefing" page in Active Sky will give you an average winds up at the top - I would use that. Alternately, SimBrief will also provide an average winds.
