  1. I purchased and downloaded directly from Aerosoft and it is now showing (it wasn't before). But now I am getting a "403 Forbidden: You don't have permission to access this resource." error when I click on the "Download" button.
  2. I am lookiung in the "Support/Service" and checking the "Updates" area which requires account log in information. Is the update located somewhere else?
  3. Hello, Rather than start a new thread on the same subject I am posting my question here. I do not see version 2.4 in my Aerosoft account to update the CRJ Pro. It still lists v 2.2 but I downloaded it anyway to make sure it was not just the title of the file. When the download finished I checked and it is still version Where can I download version 2.4?
  4. Many apologies. I forgot to mention this is for the A330.
  5. Hello, All: I am curious if the 2D panel for the map display (next to the HSI with speed tape and altitude) is disabled? The "CPT PFD" on the left of the Captain's seat can be popped out and undocked but the PFD next to it which has the map/route display cannot. I don't know if it's a setting or designed not to be a popout display. It would certainly help those of us who's vision is not the same as it was 20 years ago. It's rather small in the virtual cockpit and was hoping there's an option to get it into an undocked window. I did try to search this topic but couldn't find it with the forum search function. My apology if it is posted elsewhere.
  6. Thanks for the response. However, what you said in the response is what the aircraft is not doing: ' . . . happily maintain speed even at higher weights.'. It continues to accelerate at idle regardless of aircraft weight. It would make sense to me if at a low weight this was an issue but at a heavier weight the behaviour would decrease or disappear due to more inertia required to get the aircraft moving. I know the 787 has similar behaviour but I was surprised to see it on the A330. I'm guessing at this point there's no way counter the effect other than constantly riding the brake when taxiing? If this is how the A330 operates in real life I would imagine there's a bit of additional fuel burned and certainly a lot of brake changes. I really do like this aircraft . . . just wish the taxi speed could be throttled back without the need to have my feet constantly on the toe brake. Becomes a bit of a nuiscance on long taxis.
  7. Hello, All: I believe this has been discussed before and I've read some of the responses which seem to always point to the calibration of the hardware. The A330 begins to roll the second the parking brake is released and continues to gradually gain speed. Last evening I had a long straight parallel taxi to the departing runway and before long the aircraft was 40+ knots of taxi speed: that was with throttle at idle. I tried different fuel loads and that did not seem to make a difference. I re-calibrated the hardware (throttles), disabled the thrust control on the Thrustmaster TCA Sidestick to avoid a secondary input. I also checked this issue in the other Airbus Pro series (A318, A319, A320) and this is not an issue. Aircraft remain stationary with thrust levers at idle and no parking brake. I'd very much like to have the A330 not to be overpowered at idle. Any suggestions on how to fix/tweak this would be appreciated. I enjoy flying the aircraft but this has become quite a bit of a distraction especially with other airport traffic on the ground and when ATC is online (pilot workload).
  8. DISREGARD: If I could delete this post I would. The A318/A319 update seems to be working with regard to the exterior lighting issue. Sorry. Hello, All: I installed the latest version of the A318/A319 Pro ( via the AS Updater. During pushback and start up I noticed the BEACON light is no longer illuminated with the switch activated. Cycled it several times with no success. The same issue seems to be present with the taxi light switches and navigation lights. I turned on all of the exterior lights and checked different times of the day (dawn, daylight, dusk, night) to verify whether or not the beacon, taxi, and navigation lights are illuminated. Nothing. The other lights such as Tail/Logo & wing seem to be OK. Has anyone else noticed this or is experiencing the same issue? I haven't updated the A320/A321 Pro due to the issue I am seeing on the A318/A319 update and do not plan to update the A330 either at this point. Any insight or suggestions on how to correct this issue would be appreciated.
  9. I think it looks great! Considering some developers have stated it would be a year or so before they will have their products ready for MFS I am looking forward to this aircraft. The sim desperately needs high quality 3rd party addons and when the CRJ is released I will start using the sim. (I’ve decided to shelve MSFS 2020 as it is a mess in my opinion). Looking forward to this aircraft. Keep up the good work and thanks for letting us know.
  10. Thanks, Tom. I mistakenly assumed it would be in the updates section like Aerosoft aircraft. This should also help with another product from a different developer I purchased directly from Aerosoft. Much appreciated!
  11. I purchased it from Aerosoft but it's not listed in the dropdown menu to register it in my account. I am hoping someone from Aerosoft can explain how to add it so I can download the latest version since the Updater doesn't do it.
  12. How do we download the updates? When I try to register my purchase there's no dropdown menu for this airport. At least not that I see.
  13. So sorry. I am using P3D v4.5 and I do use Active Sky. Thanks for your suggestions as it made me think about my process and if I was doing something different. I think I found the error of my way . . . I was testing something else and in the process was trying to load the FP while the engines were running when the simulator loaded. I closed down P3D and when I restarted the scenario I shut down the engines and used ground power with Active Sky running. I was able to load the winds with no problems. All seems to be working as it should be now. THANKS AGAIN for responding and helping me to think about it. Much appreciated
  14. I have no idea what happened, but when I select the "WIND REQUEST" in the CLIMB WIND page of the CDU nothing happens. I enter the weights but because I cannot import the wind it also seems to be effecting the flaps setting in the CDU as it will not accept the number either (no warning - just won't take it). Of course this issue doesn't allow me to get V1, V2, etc. which produces an error that TO speeds are not inserted. Flightplan imports from PFPX with no issues I can see (waypoints/altitudes/speeds). Curious if anyone has this issue or know what is causing it? (Running the latest version of the Airbus Pro Bundle)
  15. Thanks a bunch! I have a backup folder and saw .txt and .per included. I thought it was an error based on other posts but what you've said makes sense. I will put all of the files back into the folder. Much appreciated 😉
