  1. Hi, I'm having a very similar problem with my F53 in P3D V4.2. The GPU sounds fine but the sound that is corrupt for me is the pilot oxygen mask breathing sound. It is very choppy and metallic sounding. During the takeoff roll this sound stutters and then stops and the sim has a CTD before getting airborne. I haven't tried disabling the ASC.dll file yet to see if this helps. Cheers, John
  2. Hi, I'm just getting into the F-14 Extended in P3D V4. I didn't get a chance to use it in P3D V3 as I had purchased it just before moving over to P3D V4. Now that I've had some time to do some training and familiarization flying I'd like to make a comment on the Transonic effects on both the VSI and Altimeter. It would appear that this transonic modeling is quite exaggerated in my experience. Both the VSI and Altimeter fluctuate wildly between about 0.91 and 1.1 Mach. Normally through flight testing and wind tunnel data, any positional error in the static ports is biased out in the aircraft instruments. The effect I'm seeing in the sim is what a constant shock wave travelling back and forth over the pitot/static probe would do. There should only be one perceptible bump in the VSI, Altimeter and Mach/Airspeed indicator as the shock wave passes the probe at Mach 1. Any insight into this observation would be greatly appreciated. Cheers, John
  3. Just to confirm what is happening to Peter, I have the same problem with Shift+8. The sim either freezes or has a CTD when I press this key combo. Cheers, John
  4. No update in almost 4 months. I'm almost beginning to think this won't happen. Hope it does though as P3D V4 is my main sim now. Cheers, John
  5. Okay?! This doesn't explain the lack of reverse thrust torque indication. A bit of background on my maintenance experience with fixed shaft turboprop engines. My main experience is with the Allison T56/D501 as installed on the C-130/L-100 and I also have experience on the TPE331 which the T76 is the military designation. Both of these turboprop engines have amazingly fast power lever response which is a major design characteristic of this type of powerplant over a free turbine engine like the PT6. The T56 can go from FI torque to max torque in 1 second and the TPE331 in 1.5 seconds with torque following the power lever in a very linear fashion. There is essentially no power lever/torque lag. What I see in the sim is a turboprop that has similar response characteristics to the PT6 if not worse. Not to say that the Bronco X is a bad sim as it's systems modeling and flying characteristics are rather nice but the engine modeling is a miss for me. Cheers, John
  6. Hello All, Let me preface my question with the comment that I have never used Bronco X in any version of P3D other than V4. I have been flying the Bronco for a few days now and have a possible issue with Power Lever-Torque response. First issue is time to get to max torque from Flight Idle is 6 seconds and the inverse is the same from max torque to flight idle. Second issue is that I have no torque indication at max reverse. In general the Power Lever response is very slow. This is with the Condition Levers in TO/LAND and I have my hardware prop pitch control disabled in FSUIPC. I have uninstalled, re-downloaded and reinstalled with the same issue. Thanks for any insight. Cheers, John
