    Departure TO MCDU page after LDG

    Great! Thanks

    Cargo doors won't close

    Hi @Meyerflyer, would you mind replacing the GSX_Doors by this one? I suspect is something related to it. Make a backup of the original first. Documents\Aerosoft\Aerosoft A320-A321 Professional\SimObjects\Airplanes\Aerosoft A320-A321 Professional Base\Panel_Fallback\AB_Systems GSX_Doors.xml The Ext.Power trigger was connected to the cargo door state, hence if you interact with GSX before the Pushback/Departure state could cause problems with users that do not want to use the Auto GSX gauge. So I updated the gauge to only trigger when GSX states are called and let the user full authority over doors. Maybe AS wants to add it to the next build if the revision of the gauge is not ready yet. It is explained here: https://forum.aerosoft.com/index.php?/topic/140799-gsx-automatic-door-handling/&tab=comments#comment-912001

    Departure TO MCDU page after LDG

    Hi @Choobe, many thanks! I attach the file. This time I made a fast flight from LEBL with the same result. FMGS.log Yes, exactly. The FMGS contents do not reset like they do at other airports. The FLPAN remains LEBLLEMD (in this case) with all the PERF pages available, and with green data TAKE OFF PERF from the departure runway. The waypoints present are only the arrival runway and the go around ones. If you can not reproduce it I'll start thinking it's something on my side, but I tried with default airport, rebuild scenery index, double checked navaids and waypoints, tried Navigraph and default Navdata... I really don't know where else to look to find the culprit. Thanks

    MCDU Lighting

    Try Shift+L to light up the MCDU bmp. This will also light up the external model cabin.

    GSX Automatic Door Handling

    Short answer, yes, it's possible. It's what I tried first when writing the code but it gave me problems with GSX triggering. The point is that AFAIK the bus does not have an Lvar to open and another one to close, it just calls a Toggle action. So you have to tell GSX at what percent position is that door for GSX understand if it's opened or closed, and that led GSX to be confused and the code not to be reliable. So unless AS comes with a better approach I'll leave it as it is now.

    Departure TO MCDU page after LDG

    I suspect that maybe it has something to do with the airport altitude. Being Madrid one of the highest airports in europe (2000ft) can the MCDU does not understand that the destination airport is higher than the Thr red/ Acc alt? Just saying. I made a test from LEBL to LEMD with Thr Red/ Acc Alt at 2100/2100 with no luck. After touchdown the MCDU keeps resetting to Take Off departure page.

    Departure TO MCDU page after LDG

    Thanks. Just to add if it helps, I tried both default NavData and Navigraph. And the APPROACH page switching to TO PERF page goes this way: -APPROACH Perf -Touchdown -seconds after or 80 knots? (Not sure what triggers exactly) -Both MCDU go black for a second -TAKE OFF Perf (Departure RWY) -“CLK IS TAKE OFF TIME” Scratchpad Message

    GSX Automatic Door Handling

    Nope, you'll get a CTD deleting an xml. I'm pretty sure that the xml does not have anything to do with this, there is no reference to any of those variables you pointed out. If you still want to check it, put a double slash before the gauge in panel.cfg. By the way, if you look at GSX forum you'll see other people with the same problem with other aircraft.
  9. Hi, I've been struggling with this many days ago and I couldn't find any solution. When landing at LEMD (default and payware) no matter the runway I land on, the MCDU resets to Take Off state form the departure runway. So, if I departure from LEIB runway 06, after landing at LEMD and when reaching more or less 80 knots at rollout the MCDU reverts to take off state rwy 06. The point is that I can reset the MCDU via changing the NavData, then the MCDU will reset fine but the Take off Memo will not appear again until I landed and prepared for take off at the next airport. It only happens at LEMD (always), maybe it happened in some other airport but I can not remember. This happens on 1.2.1.5. A320 CFM and IAE. I read that the last update changed something regarding this (maybe not related), anyway, unfortunately it is still happening. Thanks.

    GSX Automatic Door Handling

    Ok. Apologies, I didn't know that Ivao and Vatsim worked that way. So, if I understand correct you can not prepare for pushback and wait until clearance? The aircraft won't start moving until telling GSX what direction to pushback, and the doors will close before that, so you can call for pushback with no further action and the doors will close. As soon as you get the clearance you can resume the pushback. For now, this gauge does automatically all GSX doors stuff. As I said, I'm sure this kind of things can be avoided/bypassed so that it works for everyone, but it is difficult to take into account all possible variables and modes.

    GSX Automatic Door Handling

    So when GSX asks to close the doors you just have to call for pushback and GSX will close all the doors automatically for you. You just have to interact with the GSX window, if what it annoys you is the GSX bar asking to close the doors you can use it as a reminder that boarding has finished and call for pushback. Sure, the code can be improved to interact even better with GSX but there are variables that would cancel each other. It's not so easy to tell GSX to do something when something happens without avoiding other variables and keeping user control. Hope you understand.

    GSX Automatic Door Handling

    Here is an update of GSX_Doors.xml. The Ext.Power wouldn't disconnect until font cargo door was closed. Now I changed it to only connect when Boarding or Deboarding services are called. Now you'll be able to disconnect Ext.Power when GSX is not calling for the service anymore. It will be less intrusive for those who do not use GSX and want to manage GND Services themselves. With it, the Ext.Power won't wait for the jetway to be connected at gate. I'll try to exclude Gates with a jetway to bypass this premise. Copy and replace this one to Documents\Aerosoft\Aerosoft A320-A321 Professional\SimObjects\Airplanes\Aerosoft A320-A321 Professional Base\Panel_Fallback\AB_Systems or just wait for the next update if Aerosoft include it in the next build. GSX_Doors.xml
  13. This is because the GSX_Doors.xml. As long as the front cargo is opened you'll not be able to disconnect Ext.Power. It makes sense, because disconnecting Ext.Power is most of the time the last thing ground crew do before pushback. I'll update the code to just connect when calling for boarding or deboarding leaving out the cargo door state, then there would not be a delay but maybe it's easier and less intrusive.

    GSX Automatic Door Handling

    Sorry, I'm not sure if I understand you correctly. Front right door is opened instead of front left? I can only tell you to reset the Aircraft configuration within GSX menu. That will reset the Doors LVars to default.
