!! 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. Great news @Michael2 Thank you for all the work!
  2. Technically, as far as the sim goes. You shouldn't do that if flying in realistic manner is your goal. INS units did not satisfy requirements for terminal navigation and were banned from being used as such. For others - try to set your GTN750 to control navigation through heading inputs? It's done via their installer tool. Should work although I haven't tried it.
  3. Hello, I can't remember what exactly I did, so can't offer much help - however you are completely right. I was able to use FMC addon in A300 without issues in P3D v3 and Windows 10. The only issue you might run into is that font will be stretched and the CDU not responding to inputs, but that's easily fixable by installing windows 7 fonts. Google it and it will be explained somewhere. As for the issue you are experiencing now - you are on good path. If I remember correctly you had to go to texture installer and choose which model to use for each livery - you will have to pick fmccargo or fmcpac for each. However, if you have troubles with this, if I remember correctly you can edit aircraft.cfg file in the plane's folder and edit each livery section (or only the ones you want) manually. Edit those lines depending which model you want: For cargo liveries: Model=fmccargo Panel=fmccargo For passenger liveries: Model=fmcpax Panel=fmcpax Hope that works, simcheck A300 is a total bae.
  4. I wasn't precise enough, so excuse me - actually the issue occurs more than just with heading select - it just that it was the easiest way to reproduce the issue. Even if the AP follows the AUX nav source like CIVA, I can still experience a sudden attitude change and see my airplane dive towards the ground. The speeds are well within their normal range for all phases of flight, the plane is reasonably trimmed before engaging the AP. I use mouse to manipulate AP controls and didn't use any sorts of custom or keyboard binds. Everything else seems to be working quite fine, so probably not an issue with XMLTools. I will be able to provide more information when I am back home.
  5. Hey, So I and some people I talked with experience very similar problem with DC-8 autopilot. Basically, when we engage heading select and vertical speed and the plane initiates the turn during initial climb, AP seems to be unable to hold selected VS properly and forces the plane into quite a nose dive. I could accept realistic oscillation between -300/+300fpm but going from 2200 fpm climb into 3000 fpm descend when the AP is turning to the selected heading is just crazy. The issue occurs across all phases of flight, just not with 100% repro rate. Bascially: 1. Take off. 2. Engage VS to achieve ~2000-2500 fpm climb. 3. select random heading to turn the aircraft to. 4. Engage HDG select. Can't make a video right now because I am not around my PC. Cheers.
  6. Thank you for all the repaints, you are a rockstar!
  7. Since it's also a request thread, hopefully you guys won't mind one from me. There was one DC8-50s operated for Icelandair, initially operating leased as N916R and then registered as TF-FLB when Icelandair finally bought it. Here are some beautiful photos: Thank you!
