  1. Small issue: When ever there's an update for the updater, version number is missing on the first launch of the updater.
  2. When A/THR is active, after moving throttle levers to MAN/FLEX/TOGA, moving the thrust levers below CL (climb) will simply limit the maximum commanded thrust to that position - idle. You can move the levers all the way to idle, which means your allowing the autothrottle to command thrust between idle and idle. It will not however disconnect/disable autothrottle. For that you need to hit the disconnect button.
  3. The same issue is with COM1/2. COM2 if once enabled will keep receiving even with the knob turned off. This has been reported in at least two previous threads.
  4. What can we expect to see in today's update? And when will it be out? (do I go drinking after work, or fly the bus?)
  5. Did you make the PMDG and WX folders under your sim install folder? Active Sky will output the .wx file there if the folder exists. The file is created when you load a flight plan into Active Sky and updated when weather is updated. There's no need to change any settings in Active Sky.
  6. You also need the flight plan to be loaded into ActiveSky. Not just from / to, but the whole route.
  7. Running Insider builds on your sim PC is just asking for trouble. Build updates do odd things, test releases do even odder things. I've had apps deleted by Windows 10 builds. Did the Add/Remove (Apps in Windows 10 new UI) list the Aerosoft after the update anymore? Was it actually uninstalled or just the files removed?
  8. The product page clearly states that it has RAAS integration, but there's nothing about FS2Crew Voice Control or other features being included.
  9. Any change you forgot to increase the brightness for the radar overlay? It's the outer knob on the nav display brightness knob. I just loaded the A320 IAE and the radar works as intended.
  10. Active Sky makes a .wx file into the folder: ?:\..\Prepar3D v4\PMDG\WX\ named with the from and to airports you loaded into Active Sky. Aerosoft simply reads this file that was created by Active Sky. This way there's no need to make modifications to Active Sky or other software to get support for the weather data. The only gotcha is that you need to load the same waypoints into Active Sky as you have on your flight plan to get the data to load. My process is to export the company route from Simbrief for both Aerosoft and 'p3d' so I can load the p3d file into Active Sky. I'm sure pfpx can also do this.
  11. I reported this after the initial release of the A319. Was told it's going to be fixed when connected flight deck arrives.
  12. In most airliners the parking brake works with hydraulic pressure from an accumulator. This accumulator will run out of pressure over time when the plane is shut down. Thus the brakes will fade and release after some time. Chocks don't run out of hydraulic pressure
  13. The repaints will reset whenever there's a change to the aircraft.cfg file. They seem to just replace the file with a new default instead editing the existing one. It would be nice if the updater made a backup of the file so it would be easy to copy custom liveries over. For now, keep a copy of the file that you can just copy paste the liveries over whenever AS makes an update.
  14. The problem is the high fluctuation in frame times with the sim. On approach the framerate might dip close to 0 for a fraction of a second. The new bus apparently does FBW/AP calculations per frame. This causes the plane to jump around like crazy at times when the sim stutters on approach. London is really bad for example with EGKK, EGLL and EGLC payware airports and all the autogen buildings. I'm sure AS could do something about how touchy the FBW/AP is with stutters, but the biggest issue is the sim itself. Be it absolute performance limits due to poor hardware utilization or the myriad of poorly documented / explained settings. The sim gives no idea for users on which sliders affect CPU / GPU / VRAM / RAM usage, not to count all the possible .cfg tweaks. Sorry for the rant..
  15. Memory speed has almost no impact on game performance, usually. I also see it on a i7 8700k + DDR4. The sim is still far from optimized for modern hardware.
  16. The weather setting in the MCDU is for the weather downlink. It does not affect how the plane flies at all, it's just for getting metar info. Was this with default AS settings or the more reasonable values recommended above? Oh and you really shouldn't fly into a thunderstorm.
  17. It should be installed outside the p3d main folder. It seems to cause problems if you do install it inside the p3d folder.
  18. Did you install the Aerosoft A320/321 inside the P3D install folder?
  19. Check one of the included liveries..? A320: [fltsim] fallback.1=..\..\Aerosoft A320-A321 Professional Base\Tex_FB_VC fallback.2=..\..\Aerosoft A320-A321 Professional Base\Tex_FB_A320 A321: [fltsim] fallback.1=..\..\Aerosoft A320-A321 Professional Base\Tex_FB_VC fallback.2=..\..\Aerosoft A320-A321 Professional Base\Tex_FB_A321
  20. Sound similar to another thread where the culprit was Cerenado's DRM. Do you have a Cerenado aircraft installed?
  21. I've done 3 flights with the A321 so far, ZFW between empty and up to 69 tons. So far it has been the smoothest of the new Aerobusses yet. Climbs as expected and descends on the profile without the need for spoilers.
  22. I've done quite a few flights on vatsim and so far I've seen this happen once where I couldn't set the correct frequency with the radio control panel. I had to use .com1 121.300 command on vpilot.

    APU stuck ON

    I might have done something goofy with the first run where I had the APU get stuck ON on the third start / shutdown cycle (without reloading the sim). It could be that I hit change utc offset on fs realtime when the APU was shutting down. Any idea on the two xfer pump lights being on while power is off? Doesn't happen on A318, 319 or 320. Only on the 321.
  24. Where did you install the Aerosoft A320/321? If you installed it into c:\Program Files\ or c:\Program Files (x86)\ you need to open notepad / preferred text editor as administrator (Run as Administrator) to be able to overwrite any files.
