As Microsoft will stop supporting Windows 7 on Jan 20th we will be unable to test any of our
products on that platform. It may work, or it may not, but no guarantees from our side.

  1. I have been using the CRJ since it first came out in the prior version. First flight with the new version and not sure if I am encountering issues or pilot error. I completely uninstalled the old version of the CRJ. New version installed into .../documents/aerosoft/ exactly where my airbuses are...so KFAR to KORD FL 330 using Simbrief to plan and create flight plan for fms ASP4 wx Environment Force running Tweak Free (auto mode) CRJ9 US Airways Issues encountered: 1. Using charts (navigraph) causes CTD's at spurious and unrepeatable times. On the ground, while taxiing and in the air. The only way I was able to finish the flight was not use the charts at at all. 2. Charts asks for a login every time I tried to use them. I checked remember decision on the login page I was presented with each time. 3. FMC programmed with no issues...but...on the performance page when I went to look at the Weather I was presented with a screen and a message that there are no departure/arrival/alt airports selected. 4. During arrival into KORD I was set up for the ILS10C approach. Center came on and changed to west ops and gave me ILS27L. When I went to the Dep/Arr page on the fmc I could not find any way to select a different approach. Clicking on the LSK next to ILS10C entry did change the arrival to ILS04R but that is all. I tried hitting DEL and the LSK and was told that was invalid. I tried page down and up to see if the other approaches were hidden. Nothing. I tried deleting the entry in the Route page and that was invalid. I was able to delete it in the LEGS page, but the FMC still did not present any other approach option. Navigraph is fully updated. I then asked for vectors to the app and tuned in the ILS for 27L on the NavRad page. It changed to MAN mode however sometime during the approach it switched back to AUTO and tuned in the ILS for 10C/28C. So how if pilot error how do you change the arrival if one is already selected and executed. I did a search of the FMS Guide to no avail. 5. Something weird is occurring at times with a CTD. I have never seen this before. After the CTD I reboot the pc and start everything up again. The procedure for using Environment Force is to start it before launching P3D. P3D has an entry in the program data dll.xml for this addon. However after a CTD with the CRJ Pro that entry gets deleted and adding it back in does not fix the issue. I have to delete the dll.xml, rebuild it by launching P3D and then add in the pertinent aerosoft, pmdg, raas and environment force entries. This works fine again until I cause a CTD by playing the crj charts page. I rarely get a CTD however this behaviour has not been seen in the past. 6. I now appear to be getting CTD after installing the GSX folders. I forgot to do that and the very first boot of P3D after taking out the old CRJ folders and add the new ones caused a CTD as soon as the aircraft spawned and GSX/sode items came into view. Great aircraft with tons of potential. Overall performance is amazing and it feels like a plane when flying, something missing from the last version.
  2. I fat fingered the version I am using...sorry...but the problem is still the problem... I have been noticing some stange fuel behavior with the latest experimental release across all aircraft. I use the Axxx fuel weight and fuel planner and generate a load sheet. when programming the MCDU I initialize the fuel page by pressing the bottons next to the ZFW and Fuel enries and setting them to the values broght in from the fuel sheet. Currently flying KSFO to PANC. load sheet put 31000 lbs of fuel on board and that is what was entered into the MCDU I am 120 nm from tod and my onboard fuel says 27880 and fuel used says 26000 lbs while the EFOB at PANC on the fuel prediction page shows 10.5 on landing.... any ideas?
  3. I am sorry, I fat fingered the version number. I am experiencing this on version 1.2.4.2 the latest experimental.....

  5. Update...after uninstalling and reinstalling and reupdating...it appears to work.
  6. The following has occurred on all 3 tests flights so far. I use GSX and have Use GSX configured in the Gnd Services section. Upon pushback, I start Engine 2 and as before when I here the Engine 2 Stable announcment, I start Engine 1. The Engine 1 Stable announcment never happens and the info bar continues to show Follow GSX Instructions. I let the aircraft sit running for 1 hour and stayed stuck at that position in the flow. Does anyone else see this?
  7. I have not flow again. But, I am as certain as I can be. I also use the Pilot and CoPilot checklist, they always set things correct before. I will try it again.
  8. Flying over the Carribean from TKPK to KMIA and I ran over and into 5 weather systems, including on approach. I had rain on the windshield, but nothing every showed up on the weather radar. This is the first time I have ever had this issue as it mornally works without issue. Anyone else experience this after update? I have always used Active Skpy P3D v4 for the weather.
  9. 1.2.4.1 Has shown no managed speed issues using 319, 320 and 321. It does seem to be more "agressive" tracking during managed descent on an arrival, trying to play "catch" with the ball, snowflake, whatever the correct Airbus term is for the vertical profile indicator (litle green dot next to altitude tape).
  10. Route was KMCI-KSTL (doesn't matter as so far on 10+ flights the same issue manifests) A319 (also, doesn't matter same issue on all four aircraft) Simbrief Flight Plan (same issue when entering everything by hand) AIRAC cycle 1904, the same one I was using before the update LAKES3 COU KAYLA KAYLA3 This was the full route (happens Offending waypoints FLUDD and TRYSH. After entering the DEP and ARR info, I was presented with a DISCO after FLUDD----MANUAL. Before the 1.2.4 update I could clear the DISCO by selectink the LEFT lsk next to FLUDD and entrying TRYSH into the NEXT waypoint field. The flight plan would stay whole and simply remove MANUAL and the DISCO. Now however the FP is deleted. See pics
  11. A321 KSTL to KBOS FL350 CI80 Active Sky Wx Version 1.2.4.0 On this flights I took copious notes to try to see what/where the managed speed issue triggered. I was rewarded with a PERFECT flight, no issues at all. LOL. I will not take notes on all my Airbus flights. LOL
  12. What flaps setting? Weight? Are you using Manflex or TOGA, those get confused. I have never seen TOGA set anything other than full power. Manflex by definition is a lower powered flex takeoff setting that the computer calculates, if as in real life, for factors like rwy length, weight, OAT, flaps etc....
  13. After the update, A321 seemed to engage Approach Mode by itself. In fact, MCDU did not even show me the option of Approach mode under Performance. A319 did not show this beahvior. I am flying another A321 flight now KSTL to KBOS and will report back if same issue appears.
  14. If that issue was solved, please post the solution. I am seeing the same routing issue with 1.2.4.0, took pictures too, but the show the same thing as above.
  15. I flew from KCLT to KPHL with a Simbrief generated plan this time. AS weather. A320 CFM. Once again I got the managed speed issue during descent. This is three flights in a row with two aircraft from the series. I am actually excited about this because the issue seems to be confined to a particular phase of flight with 1.2.3.6. It has been called Alpha Floor mode in other posts, but today got me thinking. I was on descent and the behavior was as if the Approach Mode was somehow initiated. In fact, I left the speed alone, everything in managed mode and manually activated the Approach Mode and there was no change in behavior, again leading me to believe that something is automatically activating approach mode internally. Has this been explored?
