!! Windows 7 no longer supported !!

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. While it's not the ideal solution, have you considered simply to add a takeoff burn of those 500lbs into the PFPX profile of your aircraft? PFPX has this option and then it'll generally add 500lbs to the fuel required for climb. It may give you odd values when you fly short flights at lower cruise levels as you'll most likely burn less than those 500lbs, but for most flights it should work.
  2. Miguel, Oliver said there was a new version of Frankfurt for X-Plane release. I said there's a box version of Frankfurt for P3Dv4 released. Both are correct and not in any contrast to each other. Your picture highlights Frankfurt for P3Dv4. And indeed, there is a box version released, which is new (there was no box previously). Therefore the productpage is correct, a new product is released. The box contains the same version as the downloadversion.
  3. As far as I am aware the box version is new. Previously this scenery was only available as a download, now you can get a box as well.
  4. I don't think a P3Dv4 native version is planned, but on my personal computer the P3Dv3 version, which is included in your FSX purchase, runs fine in P3Dv4 when manually added to the scenery library. Please note however that you add it at your own risk, there is no support given.
  5. How do you load the Airbus, do you use any default aircraft which may have the autopilot engaged at 100kt or less in the defautl scenario? And do you use a betaversion or the latest stable release?
  6. Thanks for the report, probably some rounding errors. I'll make sure to ruin Hans' weekend with it
  7. Indeed like people already said earlier on there are different fuel tank configurations available for the real aircraft when you order it from Airbus. Holiday carriers like Thomas Cook, but also many US airlines have those installed to fly those long flights. Unfortunately our reference aircraft we used during development didn't have them and while it was easy to find out the additional tank capacity there was just no information available about how it works in the background. Therefore it is possible to overload our Airbus using the methods already described here. But please note that this is not officially supported so if you run into issues the first step we will ask you is to remove that mod again.
  8. While you should have filled the FMC I agree with you though that at least in selected modes it should be working even without FMC information entered. Not taking any gurantees here for the real aircraft, you never know with Airbus. I believe what is causing your issue here is that the selected speed is jumping from your target down to 100kt for some split seconds every now and then. This causes the thrust to reduce and the to rise again, leading to an average N1 slightly below what would be needed to maintain your target speed. While probably unrelated I want you to do a small test for me please: Could you try to set the speedbug to the top of the amber bar +15kt (instead of the +5kt as in your video) please and see if the speed gets stable anywhere before going into the amber bar? If yes, at which speed is this? This might give us a hint if my above theory is correct. Obviously we still have to find the cause of the target speed jumping down itself. Do you have anything connected to your computer which might try to set the target speed? Maybe some hardware FCU, MCP, etc.? Does the same happen in managed mode (then of course with a fully programmed FMC)?
  9. If you use an nVidia card it might have one included already. Otherwise I don't really have any recommendation, sorry. In the worst case you mobile would do the job as long as everything is readable.
  10. You can change the values in the aircraft.xml files, but as Mathijs said, no gurantees taken that you will not run into issues if you do this.
  11. Some screenshots might also be helpfull here, it is always very hard to follow up on such a situation without seeing what actually happens. Or even better a video if you can take one and upload it somehwere and post the link here.
  12. At the moment we can not tell you when you expect this, sorry. We can only confirm it is part of what we want to add in the future.
  13. On a small note additionally to Toms answer: Did you click on the "show old orders" button above your previous orders list? There is an explanation text right above the list of your new orders which says that we changed shop systems in early 2017 and that you can access all your old orders by clicking the "show old orders" button. We can assure you we do not delete any orders, you paid for them, so you can use them. Whenever you want. The rest of your issue will be checked in the support ticket Tom asked you to raise, in there we can look everything up and check if there's something wrong with your order. Please make sure to include the order number in your ticket so that we know immediately what to look for.
  14. Ich glaube nicht, dass es hier noch ein Update geben wird, aber sage niemals nie. In der Zwischenzeit gibt es jedoch einen Usermod für GSXv2, mit welchem die Jetways alle bediehnt werden können.
  15. I would not recommend changing the aircraft.cfg file Ray. According to PMDG that could cause all kind of problems with their aircraft as most of their calculations are done outside of FS. My GeneralEngineData section looks the same as yours. I assume you follow a normal climb profile, aka NADP, 250/M.whatever results from your CI, do you? In my airline we always enter the TOC wind in the cruise wind field on the PERF INIT page to get a more economic climb speed resulting from the CI. Not sure if PMDG models the wind effects on the CI resultant speeds at all (I believe they do not), but this might make a small difference. Then, if you get a reduced climb thrust (CLB1 or 2) you can clear that and use full climb thrust as soon as ATC clears you above FL150. From then on it's always full climb thrust, which saves a bit of fuel as well. Do you retract the retractable landing lights when you raise the gear? The myth says these use an additional 50kg when they're extended until FL100. Whether that's true and whether PMDG modelled it is another question of course.
  16. Hi, which altitude and speed/mach did you fly and were there any changes in temprature at that point? I'm thinking you might just have been on the transition of SPD/MACH and maybe some fluctuating tempratures (which in return have a direct influence on the mach number) caused the constant changes.
  17. I don't quite remember, sorry Rudy. Just give it a try yourself, maybe carry some extra fuel on the first couple of flights and do frequent fuel checks and at the end of the flight compare the fuel used after landing (before taxi-in) with the scheduled trip plus taxi fuel for the flight. That should help you finding the correct bias.
  18. This is caused by TomatoShade for sure. It will happen with most aircraft for which you have no profile installed. There are two solutions: Get a Tomatoshade profile for our Airbus or remove Tomatoshade. Unfortunately there is nothing we can do about this, it is 100% caused by the way Tomato works.
  19. Hi, there is a profile for the 787 available on airlinerperformance, have a look there. It works quite well with the QW. I'm not aware of any template specific to the QW simulation however.
  20. I can't recall seeing it either but since FS2Crew seems to be heavily involved with the issue I'd try sending them a request. Maybe they have seen this issue before.
  21. Wie sieht die Performance denn in der Gegend aus, wenn Du den Airport einmal im Simulator deaktivierst? Bekommst Du dann bessere Performance am standart Erfurt Airport?
  22. PFPX tries its best to deal with all those restrictions, however even the multi million dollar dispatching programs used by real airlines often can't keep up with the complexity of european airspace. That's why you still have people sitting there, overseeing the whole process and stepping in where the system can't work it out. Also make sure you download the latest RAD's so that PFPX actually even knows about the restrictions in place! You can find them in the downloadsection here in the forums.
  23. What the system is set to doens't really matter, what it does is what matters. External influences like weather, misconfigured joysticks or just common errors (like leaving the speedbrake out in level flight) could lead to the system "misbehaving". Keep in mind: It's a machine! Machines aren't perfect! The video begins after the really interesting situation (how it got that slow) was over already. So we can't really tell what happened. Everything that happened afterwards is caused by pilot error, in other words an inappropriate response to Alpha Floor activation. This mode is explained in the manual, please review it so that you know how to react in the future to avoid the overspeed. Once TOGA LK was active it can only be deactivated by the pilot. You did not do so, thus the engines were stuck with full thrust, leading you right into an overspeed situation. Even then you did not react. Always keep in mind the golden rules published by Airbus, in your case especially numbers 5 and 6: https://lessonslearned.faa.gov/IndianAir605/AirbusSafetyLib_-FLT_OPS-SOP-SEQ03 - Ops Golden Rules.pdf
  24. Hi Ernie, if I'm not mistaken they contain the airports AFCAD files.
