  1. 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 :)


  2. 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)


  3. Hello,

     

    This morning for whatever reason PFPX stopped working. I reinstalled it (v2.03) but now the aircraft database is completely empty. The weird thing is that they are still in the folders:

     

    (1) C:\Users\Public\Documents\PFPX Data\AircraftTemplates

    (2) C:\Users\Public\Documents\PFPX Data\AircraftTypes.

     

    Does anyone know how to get them to show in PFPX again?


  4. Hans,

     

    I've read this entire thread as I am having the same issue. However, I have a slightly different experience which I am not sure will help.

     

    1. Everything worked fine with v2.0 of the CRJ Pro installed.

    2. Updated to v2.2 and it worked fine, however, there were some things in 2.2 I didn't like so I uninstalled it and reinstalled v2.0.

    3. v2.0 no longer works.

    4. Uninstalled v2.0

    5. Installed 2.2. Still not working.

     

    The "navigraphOIDC.dll" is present in the main P3D folder. I have the QW787 installed with SP3 and FS2Crew for the 787 (SP3 is required for FS2Crew to work).

     

    I checked the ASupdater and it shows that all Aerosoft aircraft addons are up to date (A318-321 Pro, A330 Pro, CRJ, CRJ Pro, Twin Otter).


  5. Hello,

     

    I upgraded to the latest version of CRJ Pro (2.2) and now the cockpit is dark and the yoke deflected to the left. I researched this as best as I could and found this link, however, it stated a new topic should be started.

     

    I turned the battery switch on but nothing powers up. Can't use the EFB to add a ground cart since there is no power. I attempted to reinstall but that did not fix the issue either. I checked the AS Updated and it shows I have the latest version of the CRJ Pro.

     

    At the moment, I have an aircraft that will not fly. Any help is appreciated.


  6. Thanks, Dave.

     

    Like I mentioned, I normally do watch to see where it's going to install but it was a bit difficult to see and it was not real obvious. Only after uninstalling and re-installing did I catch it. I was not aware that Aerosoft products kept the last install as the default and now that I know i will definitely be on guard in the future.

     

    Thanks again, for answering and for providing more detail. Much appreciated.


  7. Dave,

     

    All is well with the reinstall. As I suspected, the A330 installer finds the other Aerosoft product folder (Maastricht) and places it there, not the actual default location. And I could barely see the "Browse" button on the installer as the colors are not very distinguishable from the rest of the window. I would like to suggest the button have a lighter (white) background in the future so it's more visible.

     

    Thanks a bunch for your help!


  8. Dave,

     

    Thanks so much for responding. I was able to find out where the files installed. Somehow (I don't know how) the A330 installed into another Aerosoft scenery folder. I'm guessing it found it and I must have hit "OK" during the installation.

     

    Anyway, I'm going to uninstall and then re-install making sure it uses the directory you mentioned above.

     

    And if you don't mind, could you point me in the direction of how to fix/correct the .zip files for liveries using the livery manager? It seems with the new one you can't drag and drop like before without errors. Otherwise I'll be painfully installing manually. Sorry to get off track and onto a different topic.

     

    I'll post here if the reinstall is successful.

  9. Hello,

     

    I just installed the latest version of the A330 and so far so good. I haven't taken it for a flight yet, however, I can't find the installation path.

     

    Also, I'd like to see where the liveries are located in case I need to manually install a repaint (or create one myself).

     

    Where does the new build install to by default?


  10. Thanks for the reply.

     

    I still think it should be an option that can be displayed or not displayed for those of us who use tablets. Anyway, I might try it but first I need to make sure I still have the installer prior to the latest update in case I would like to go back.

     

    I don't suppose there's an archive for downloading previous versions?


  11. Are there any posts/screenshots displaying the A318-A321 with the EFB installed?

     

    It's my understanding the latest update installs the EFB with no option to not have it displayed. I've seen one screenshot of the A320 EFB but it looks like it's higher than the A330 in reference to the window. (The A330 EFB does not block any portion of the window). It appears the A31X/A32X aircraft have the EFB blocking the lower portion of the window which I personally find to be a distraction. I know this has been discussed before, but I'd if there are any pictures to verify how it looks please point me to them.

     

    I've read the updates and the A/T fix would be great but I'm not sure if it's worth having the EFB (which I don't use anyway - I use my tablet as an EFB for all of the Airbuses).

     

    Not trying to start a feud or complain: just trying to decide on the updates.


  12. Hello 

     

    I know the EFB for the A330 can not be removed from the cockpit. I’m hoping  the latest update for the A318-A321 Pro will not be the same.

     

    1. If the update is installed will the user have the option to not display the EFB?

     

    2. Is there a way to roll back the update?


  13. Hello, Mathijs:

     

    I think it's fine we disagree. The issue for me is I find it distracting and I had assumed based on flying with some friends in the real world that the EFB was portable and not a permanent fixture. Therefore I thought it would be nice to have the option in the A330 to have it viewable or not.

     

    I currently have a mounting stand for my tablet which I use as an EFB and that's why I don't see a need for it in the VC in my case. I was hoping the EFB might have the option for Enable/Disable in future updates.

     

    Kind regards,

    Will

  14. Thanks, Dave.

     

    I'm a bit surprised there is no option to disable it. I honestly wish the views for the A330 would be setup the same way as the A318-A321 series or at least be able to save custom views to the viewbar. I have no idea if that could be done or what's involved but it would be a nice feature on all of the Airbus models.

     

    I digress. Anyway, the A330 is a great airframe and last month alone I wracked up over 60 hours on it alone and the few other hours were the smaller Bus'. My Boeing aircraft have seen a sharp decline in use and it will probably stay that way for the forseeable future. Aerosoft did a great job on the Bus series (I've been converted): I just wish this EFB had the option to be turned off as some other developers have done.

     

    Thanks again for the suggestion. I might give that a go but in the meantime: did you try your solution? If so, did it work? Did it affect aircraft performace?

     

    Sorry for so many questions.


  15. Does anyone know how to disable the EFB (Electronic Flight Bag)?

     

    I know a lot of people like it but I find it extremely distracting and would like to remove it. I've scanned the included documents and a search of the forums did not locate this question.

  16. Of course  ;-)

     

    Everything is fine. I was trying to update the A330 a few days ago to the new cycle but it wasn't working in the FMS Manager for the A330. As mentioned earlier the A330 is updated when the A3XX Pro Series is cycled: just the way Navigraph does it. Because of this Navigraph will remove the A330 Pro addon line in the next edition of the FMS Manager.

     

    I just wanted to post this in case someone else thought they were having an issue.

     

    Thanks for the follow up.


  17. Hello, All:

     

    My previous post was closed/locked before I could follow up with what I found. I figured I would need to check the Navigraph forums and I did. From what I understand the A330 FMS data is stored in the same location as the A3XX Pro Series and Navigraph stated the A330 is updated, however, the airframe will be removed from the FMS on the next cycle.

     

    Posting just in case anyone else is having this issue.


  18. Greetings,

     

    I recently installed a Dash 8 and when updating Navigraph via their manager I noticed the Aerosoft A330 needed updated as well. When attempting to update for the A330 Pro, the Navigraph FMS Manager shut down (CTD). I restarted the FMS Manager but now it hangs on "Preparing Installation" for the A330.

     

    Is anyone else having this issue?

     

    I realize I might need to make a post in the NAVIGRAPH forums but I thought I'd check here first.
