  1. Also, could you try flying it with a typical load of fuel and cargo such as in the tutorial flight to see if you have the same problem? Note that saved flights in FSX need to be loaded twice or the INS won't initiate properly. Just load the flight and then load it again.
  2. I am opening a new thread as the first one was locked. First of all, I'm sorry not to have seen this earlier. I've been very immersed in developing another aircraft for the new MSFS and don't check the forum here regularly as the product has been released for a long time now. Concerning the startup sounds. The sound was done by Turbine Sound Studios. My understanding is that many sounds were recorded from an DC-8, but I don't know about the startup sounds specifically. It's an old aircraft and there are going to be issues in getting every sound as authentic as possible. That said, I think this is the first complaint about sound I have heard and I know there are several ex-DC-8 pilots and engineers that have purchased the product. As for the vibrating scenery and difficulty while hand flying during climb out, it's difficult to know how to help as I have never experienced this behaviour. I think maybe two users have reported a similar issue but as I recall, I was never able to identify a cause. The first thing to check is whether XML Tools is properly installed. In your main FSX directory there should be an FSXTools.dll file. If it isn't installed properly, many systems, including stabilizer trim, won't work properly. Do the trim handles move when you adjust the trim? Do the spoilerons move when the aircraft is on the ground? If so, then XMLTools is installed and working as it should. Also, are you using FSUIPC for your control inputs? I recall that this caused trouble for some users in the past.
  3. I am working on a new steam gauge airliner for MSFS 2020, but not the DC8. It's too early to discuss it here as no firm arrangements have yet been made with respect to publishing by Aerosoft and it's too early to show screenshots.
  4. I have the same problem. I just installed the new version and it crashes after a few seconds.
  5. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1_RgCt--z5DFjWF__yrqAAw2CxY1PoWT6/view?usp=sharing Try this. I had a setting wrong with the previous one.
  6. I posted the link above in this thread. It's right there and working.
  7. No, the installer isn't updated yet. That's why I made the file available. It's easy to download and put it in the folder.
  8. My apologies. I copied a file from the P3D version to implement the auto FE forgetting that the FSX version uses a different variable for external air. Until we replace the installer or add the file to the update you may download it from this link: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1_RgCt--z5DFjWF__yrqAAw2CxY1PoWT6/view?usp=sharing Replace the file in Microsoft Flight Simulator X\SimObjects\Airplanes\DC-8_50\Panel\DC8_Loader with the new one.
  9. Correct, the aircraft must be correctly configured for takeoff before turning on the auto engineer.
  10. No problem. Thanks for letting me know it works at your end.
  11. I have never started with a default aircraft before loading the DC8 so you can be assured that loading it directly will not cause any problems.
  12. Here's the link for FSX. I had to give the file a different name so after downloading change the name to logic.xml (get rid of the (1)). https://drive.google.com/file/d/1PJPUxhJH0azVKzzwIHecgt28N2ugHkgq/view?usp=sharing
  13. I discovered the issue for this and I'm giving you a link to a new file directly so you don't have to wait for this to go in the updater system and to get some feedback before it does. Replace the logic.xml file in the panel/DC81 folder. This is for P3D only -- I'll post the same for FSX in a moment. As always, it's a good idea to back up the original just in case. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1iTqdjlnl672BiuvWEUa7gNHOXi8f8zN7/view?usp=sharing
  14. The files for the FSX update were sent to Aerosoft on September 17th. They usually get updates out right away. I'm not sure what the issue is but I will follow up with Mathijs.
