  1. Okay, so I EXACTLY the same issue in the 321 as well and have the following conditions verified: 1. NO axis is assigned to the speed brake 2. The speed brake handle is fully stowed, etc. 3. NO key assignments exist that are overriding any spoiler action. I've removed all of them, tested, restored them to defaults, etc. No matter what, as soon as the aircraft (a321 in this instance) takes off I have the "F/CTL SPD BRK STILL OUT" The behavior is definitely glitched. If I do assign an action to the speed brakes (an axis or a keypress to retract them) they will retract if it's held down. As soon as I release the axis or the key, they pop out again to approx 15 degrees deployed. As with the many other posts, this behavior is specific to the Airbus- other add-on aircraft have spoilers via axis and operate perfectly. This aircraft simply insists on deploying the speed brakes. P3d config has been rebuilt too many times to count with no change.

    Excessive Fuel use

    Further the to fuel prediction issues, I also am seeing drastic shortfalls in range. On flights btw Orly and Reunion I'm running dry around 1200nm short of the destination (both directions). This weekend went as far as performing the flights with max fuel and zero pax/cargo, same result (ff approx 5.5k). I've also had the fuel planner throw some very odd values at me (ie 42k lbs for Honlolulu > Tokyo). Oddly, the fuel prediction stayed consistent on the Reunion run at around -1.4k (lbs) the whole flight, even after I became an imitation of Transat 236, lol. Will post log of next attempt. Still enjoying the plane!
  3. Update- success, though still somewhat a mystery. I copied my /texture and /effects folders out to a temporary location. I confirmed I was on the latest release/hotfix, but re-downloaded and reinstalled the client and content components. I ran a file comparison between the two and, aside from the additions placed there by add-ons, I could not see any differences in the stock files (size, date, etc), so unfortunately couldn't identify a culprit. I've run through my various add-on aircraft and scenery and see nothing amiss. So, simple answer was reinstalling the client and content; took very little time and strobes appear as they should.
  4. Hi Mathijs, I'll continue digging and post if I can find a solution (ie if files were changed, and which ones they were) for reference in the future.
  5. Update, after deleting the shaders folder I now see strobe reflections on the ground, but nothing on the aircraft itself.
  6. Hello, I am seeing an issue common to both my 319/20/21 and now the 330 Pro, that being I have no visible strobes on any of the planes. My 319 and 320/1 also display no nav lights (all switches are correctly set). I installed the 330 in D:/Aerosoft (outside of my p3d folder), and I see all the expected folders within, including the effects folder referenced in the xml file. It does contain a strobe fx file among all the others. I do see wing, logo, and landing lights on the 330. No shaders are used, no camera/chase add one, etc. Just looking for potential troubleshooting ideas before a full removal and reinstall of both packages. Oh, and all are current per the updater and in v4.5. Thanks for any tips!
  7. Before I go through removal/reinstall can you clarify "There is never any need to adjust the cameras for the aircraft"? Is that to say that pan/tilt/zoom is intended to be disabled in the external views (wing, engine, etc)?
  8. Subject says it all. I've combed through the aircraft.cfg and reset every xyzadjust = FALSE to "true". STILL cannot pan or zoom the external views using the hat switch, etc. While I cannot possibly grasp why this was thought to be a good idea, is there another setting in the 'bus configurations that is locking these views in place? Note- this is not a p3d problem, it's unique to the Airbus Prof product. Thanks to anyone who can help! I'm a fan of being able to tweak my external/wing views in-sim.
  9. Thanks all, I finally gave in and removed, then reinstalled both products in full (319, 320/21) on my system. Resolved the TOD issue for me. However, a new one is now locked differential brakes (I created another post so this one is resolved). Thanks!
  10. So, having reinstalled everything to rid myself of the TOD issue I was having (seemingly something went awry during my update), I'm now having issues with my brakes. Landed normally at VTSP (normally, aside from two CTD's on final....). Used reverse thrust, no autobraking, was gentle with the wheel brakes. Halfway down the taxiway suddenly "DIFFERENTIAL BRAKES" appeared at lower left and my 321 ground to a halt. I do not: Use rudder pedals Have any key assignments mapped to left/right brakes Use the brakes hard on landing (ie not locked up) No axis is assigned to braking- I have a button mapped to "." at a medium repeat rate only I'm fairly frustrated right now as I've flown this plane many times since release and have only just gotten it onto a runway to find this latest issue on my sim..... any help would be greatly appreciated.
  11. Ver a321 prof, v4.3. Pretty much all flights go as expected until TOD which is passed by without the FMS configured pause. I've restarted, reconfirmed, endlessly. 'Bus doesn't seem to respect this setting.Thanks!
