  1. Hello, All: I had asked a few months when the full fuselage paint kit for the A330 Pro would be available. The thread has been closed and I haven't been able to find a release date or if it's available I don't know where. If anyone knows if it's available or will be it would be appreciated. Regards
  2. 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
  3. 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 fo
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. UPDATE: Spent about 4 hours after my previous post in an attempt to find the issue of the throttles in the sim not responding to the hardware. (Ironically the buttons/switches on the hardware worked so I knew the throttle quad was good) . 1. Make sure you save/export (or have saved) your P3D settings so in case you need to remap you can do so with the "import" function instead of resetting everything. 2. Then I made a copy of my "Modules" file in the root directory of P3D and stored it on another drive. 3. I deleted the contents of the modules fo
  9. NEW DEVELOPMENT: I restarted P3D and now the throttles do not work at all ! After pushback the aircraft started picking up speed upon break release. N1 and N2 were at about 73% and when I moved my throttle quad there was no response. Using the "F1" key temporarily reduced thrust to idle but then it went back to 73%. I recalibrated in P3D and in FSUIPC with no change in control. I loaded a different aircraft (CS 777) and the throttle quad controlled the thrust levers in the sim perfectly. I have no idea what happened. If I find anything I'll report back othe
  10. I agree. It took about a year after the release of the Airbus Pro A3XX Series for Aerosoft to work out all of the issues and I assume it will be the same with the 330. Lately the A330 starts to nose dive when it's time to descend: not sure what that's about but again I am guessing everything will be fixed over time. It's a nice aircraft and although I wish we had the same predefined views as the A3XX series it's a fairly decent alternative if you want to fly long haul in something other than Boeing. (And "fairly decent" will hopefully become "very nice" in the future)
  11. Pretty much what I am experiencing also. I believe my throttle is properly calibrated as it works perfectly fine with the A319-A321 Pro series by Aerosoft (as well as other airframes). The only other aircraft I use which exhibits the same behavior as the A330 with regard to taxiing is the QW 787 and that is intentional to mimic the real aircraft.
  12. I believe it was mentioned in the A330 preview forum a full fuselage template would be included with the paintkit: does anyone know when that will be provided?
  13. Hello, Congratulations on the A330! I'm currently flying it on a short flight and as promised this is fairly straight forward with a few nuances. I've found a few things which I am reluctant to mention as I know this is a work in progress with updates to come. With that said: 1. The aircraft rolls forward with engines at idle (no park brake obviousl) but it seems to be a bit fast. I've grown accustomed to the A3XX series which do not move at idle (at least for me). - Is this by design? 2. The view menu is nice to have, however, the views are diff
  14. Mathijs, Thanks for posting the information and for creating the files to map the switches. It makes it SO much easier!
  15. Another question gents: I used the AS Updater to get the latest version but when I check within the driver program itself it’s telling me a new update is available. Any idea if there really is an update? How do I know if the Updater is working? BTW, the profile you created Dave, is working great!
  16. Dave, Thanks a bunch ! I reinstalled the driver as you suggested and loaded the profile for the Airbus in the software. The landing light seems a bit fickle but it seems to be working so much better. I did notice the switch position works opposite of what I'm used to: is there a way I can reverse the position/toggle? And can you share what the "value" translates to? I've seen/heard "0" is off and "1" is on but I noticed something different in your version. Thanks again, I think I'm about 90% there now at least with the Airbus.
  17. Dave, I will reinstall the software as you described to see if that helps. I’ve installed it per the default settings but not with AV off which I will do. Thanks for the profile too. I’ll see if that works for A32X series and it would be great if it worked for other aircraft. Would you mind providing a link to the video you’ve found? I’d like to know more about the cable you mentioned.
  18. Dave, Not sure of your first queston? I installed it on my SSD in a special folder for P3D (I guess it's an old habit from the FSX days). Are you asking if I installed P3D or the yoke software as admin with anti-virus off? Currently the antivirus is set to exclude the entire P3D folder/installation so I don't think that is the problem.
  19. Gaab, it's not there. Here's a screenshot of what I am seeing:
  20. Hmmm. I went to "Options", "Add-ons..." and all I see are scenery addons: nothing there about button bindings.
  21. Well, I've already assigned the buttons in P3D natively and it still does not work (did that when I first received the yoke a few weeks ago). And to note, not all lights on the Alpha yoke have corresponding assignments in P3D. Since the switches aren't working even though I've assigned them I thought that was what the driver/software would do. As it stands nothing works for the switches (at least for me). If anyone has been able to get the corresponding switches to work in P3D for the Alpha yoke I would certainly appreciate succint instructions on how it was accomplish
  22. But for those of us who don't know how to interpret or write this type of code (for a lack of better terms) how do we get it working? Also, the current software seems to do weird things. For example, when I switch views from interior to exterior it moves the flap switch up/down (I simply installed the yoke software and made no adjustments/assignments.) Mechanically the yoke works for basic flight control but the switches are completely useless at this point. And since it's interfering with my flap operations I had to uninstall it. I was hoping it wouldn't interfere so that I could
  23. Tom, i did use the URL contained in the literature with the yoke which is how I got the driver and software. Is it different from the link you provided? Mathijs, Thanks for the information. I know all of you are busy, but how will we know when the new software is available? Will
  24. Hello, I recently contacted Honeycomb regarding the instructions for installing the driver and assigning the switches to the proper functions of the aircraft (lighting and electrical) in P3D (XPlane works great). Currently it seems the assignments do not work and the method for using the software/driver are not working either. Honeycomb informed me Aerosoft created the driver/software and was working the issue. Any idea when we can expect an updated working version of the software? I know there’s a lot happening at Aerosoft (really looking forward to the A330) but any
