  1. Gentlemen, I am really wondering for what reason these arguing should go on and on? Anybody can say that there are places where the CL might go a bit slow. This is true and not true at the same time. Please try to understand that "fast" and "slow" are relative and too much personal depending categories. Let's have an example. Please disable the co-pilot from MCDU 3 and start doing the CL without her / his help. How many people here are 100% familiar with the location of all switches and buttons? Do you believe that everyone who had purchased the Aerosoft's AC (no matter which version) has the skills of a RL pilot and knows the location of all control units? How many people are really realizing the use of CL and why they were created? Rolf said absolutely correct above - the plane is made for a wide audience of people who have big variety of experience and they need to learn first, before getting "Expert" level in simming. There is no an universal game yet, which is developed in such a way that can be so flexible to suit to all the requirements and pretentions of each individual. Sorry for the language, but if someone does not like the view focus function it can always be switched off. The plane can be flown without CL even and it can reach sometimes the destination. Last, but not least, I am trying to say that the idea of all those updates was to make the plane much more interactive and as much closer to RL operation. My personal opinion is that such aim can be reached with productive discussions, proactive suggestions instead of endless arguing without any practical use. Have a nice evening and always keep the blue side up!
  2. Hi Moto, Sorry for interrupting once again. I am attaching you 2 pictures taken from the cockpit of A321. The first one is when "Cold and dark "state is activated, the second one is from "Turn around state". Both of them are showing the WXR knob set to WX+T as default. I had tried many different options with the plane, but the only one, which defers from the default setting is when a previously saved flight was there. May I suggest you to check something else? Please locate your aircraft to an airport, where you had never been before. Start everything from scratch and report the results. What I mean scratch is version 1.4.2.0, "Turn around" state, some kind of a simple flight plan and following the process of all consequent check lists. I am sure that Mr. Hanse will get a better picture of your problem and will support for sure. This is a friendly community here and all of us are trying to support each other as much as we can. Regards: Georgi
  3. Why don't you use the Overhead panel" for switching off the External Power instead of MCDU3? This is how the pilots operate in RL.
  4. Hi Moto, Sorry for interrupting your discussions, but let me share some thoughts regarding the subject: - I had version 1.4.1 before installing the latest update for the small planes and starting your discussions. Tried the "Cold and dark state "and everything was working properly. The only thing I could not understand was due to what reason your Weather rudder was set to WX instead of WX+T, which is the default option; - Please note that the latest update, 1.4.2.0 is a completely different scenario. You have so called an interactive CL, which makes the situation in the cockpit much more close to RL (Real Life). Mr. Rolf (Hanse) explained it in his several posts and I personally think is that this option is the beauty of AS planes; - I would suggest a simple thing, try starting your test flight from "Turn around" state and keep the PF and PnF as on. Make sure that GSX is running. Alternatively go to Ground services - GSX pushback and set it to NO; - Please do not start the APU ON manually, let the flight crew (Check List) start it whenever is necessary; - Let the process flow as it was designed to and report the results; Enjoy and happy landings!
  5. Hi, I was performing a flight EGCC - LOWW recently using the latest update of A320 pro. Livery used was G-EZTB, i.e a livery part of the AS package. Switched on the error debugging option in P3D as a matter of curiosity. The error message file is attached for reference. Simulator used was P3D v5 HF2 (please do not tell me it is a crap. I know it very well). Weather engine Active sky for P3D latest update, version 7514. Based on the above I would like to ask the following question: Can someone from the Development team comment the error messages related to stated aircraft? Please neglect the messages concerning FLai. They are subject of other forum. I am not using any third party scenery except the included ones. My addons list is attached also. Nothing extraordinary as it can be seen. Thank you in advance and would appreciate any comments. ContentErrors.txt
  6. Hi, With absolutely no bad feelings to the dialog above, I would like to mention several things and close the subject for me: - it is a very well established democratic principal that people can do with their money whatever they want; - there is a very good post https://forum.aerosoft.com/index.php?/topic/132486-optimizing-liveries-for-64-bit-verision/ from Mathijs Kok where he clearly describes what to be done with the old liveries. The second post in the same topic is linking to the instructions given by Aerosoft''s livery "guru" what and how to be done; - having in mind that the Air Canada C-FXCD livery was published in 2018, it can be considered as a relatively old. Like it or not, it should have some modifications to be made compatible with the aircraft, which works under P3D v4.5. Moreover, I am not quite sure if it was made for the pro or 32 bit version of the Airbus; - it took me no more than 5 min to modify the content of the file, keeping all the above in mind and make stated livery working with the latest version of the aircraft. With my full respect to the author of the livery who pretended to have copyright on it, I am not publishing the modifications. Hope the above may help. Wishing happy landings to all!
  7. Hi, Can you please check several things: - Please open your Texture.ACA_CFXCD folder and check if you have a file named texture.cfg in it? - Check the content of subject file. It should contain the following 3 lines only: [fltsim] fallback.1=..\..\Aerosoft A320-A321 Professional Base\Tex_FB_VC fallback.2=..\..\Aerosoft A320-A321 Professional Base\Tex_FB_A320 - is there a file called thumbnail.jpg, which is your thumbnail picture of the AC? It should be located in the same folder Texture.ACA_CFXCD. - I would modify the corresponding part in aircraft.cfg file to be as follows: [FLTSIM.7] title = Airbus A320 Air Canada C-FXCD sim = A320 model = CFM panel = sound = texture = ACA_CFXCD kb_checklists = kb_reference = atc_id = C-FXCD atc_airline = AIR CANADA atc_flight_number = ui_manufacturer = Airbus ui_type = A320-214 CFM ui_variation = Air Canada C-FXCD ui_typerole = Commercial Airliner ui_createdby = Aerosoft atc_parking_types = GATE atc_parking_codes = TAM description = Aerosoft A320 professional CFM / Air Canada C-FXCD \n www.aerosoft.com \n Repaint by Gustavo Aguiar (www.texturasbrasileiras.com) Hope the above helps.
  8. Hi, I have to admit that I was struggling too much with the new Livery Installer when it was published for the first time. Luckily Hans Hartmann published the updated version of the installer on page 2 of this post and another good friend of mine point me there. Now the subject is sorted for me successfully. In regards to all this, there are at least 2 more things, which I would like to mention: - there are unfortunately some third party liveries, which are not working properly with P3D v4.5 and especially with v5. Like it or not, we have to accept it and be careful when using them. These are normally very old liveries created several years ago when the requirements of the SIM were different; - Our colleague Chucks1860 had posted a short manual on page 3 how a proper zip livery packet can be created with a combined method. There is no need of very deep computer knowledge to follow it, but the most important is to follow it strictly and do not jump over any of the steps he mentioned; That is all and I sincerely hope that it will be not a big deal to follow the updated procedure. Happy landings!
  9. Hi, Please check my post here: The reason might be corrupted xml file. I was facing such several times already. It seems some antivirus "don't like" how the updater works and make changes to xml files or it comes wrong with the installation for the small buses. There is nothing wrong with the one for A330. Hope the above helps.
  10. Hi guys, Please check the file as_a320_a321_prof_v5.xml. It is located in C:\Users\[YourName]\Documents\Aerosoft\ASUpdater\Products. You can open it with a simple text editor like Notepad or Notepad++. The first line in it should be exactly like this: <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>. It is corrupted sometimes due to some reasons unknown to me. Please edit it, if necessary and save the file. Do not touch anything else below. Start the updater as administrator, but PLEASE disable the antivirus first. I had this problem several times already and every time the solution worked. Happy landings!
  11. Hi, Can you try to be more specific about the delays, which you are referring to above? I am also flying online in most of the occasions and am unable to fully agree with your statements. There is a big improvement between the first versions using the VIEW FOCUS and what is now. Rolf mentioned clearly that if there is no delay in the Taxing CL for example, you simply cannot steer the plane in some airports where the taxiway is complicated. Please also note that this AC is designed and made for all kind of users, who have different level of knowledge and EXPERIENCE for piloting the plane. Many of them need to know and mainly remember visually what is going on and how it is going on in the cockpit. Human brain is much more used to learn things by getting visual impression for the sequence of events, which happen, instead of listening to them only. I personally would prefer to have such interactive CL in the small planes also, no matter that it will take time and AS has to decide if it is worth to. Last, but not least is, please remember that people are different and making an universal product is always an almost impossible task. Rolf had tried to implement something, which cannot be seen in other products from the sort and he deserves appreciation. Moreover, the CL are quite close to the RL events, which are happening in the cockpit during flight execution. Hope the above helps.
  12. Hi Dave, Thank you for the support! I was trying the settings today (except the number of cloud layers) and everything works really perfect. We may talk about fps limiting sometimes, but this is not the right topic for it. Have a nice weekend!
  13. Hi Dave, May I ask something regarding your settings? - Don't you thing downloading weather data every 5 minutes is a bit too often? I had noticed that the computer takes quite lot time for doing that, especially when the route consists of many WP. I personally use the default settings - 15 min and it works satisfactory. - What about MaximumCloudLayers=10? It seems to be too much also, but I had not tested it. Honestly! - All others are perfectly OK as per my experience. Would appreciate your comments. Thank you!
