  1. Yes, they will work if installed correctly. See the guide in the respective subforum.
  2. Hi Jason, did you put the fuel in on the INIT B page?
  3. Derzeit gibt es kein Upgrade, als die P3Dv4 Editionen veröffentlicht wurden gab es für eine begrenzte Zeit einen Upgradepreis, dieser ist aber ausgelaufen, weshalb es jetzt nurnoch das Upgrade zum Vollpreis gibt.
  4. Hi Claus, ein offizielles deutsches PMDG Forum gibt es nicht. PMDG bietet nur englischen Support. Du kannst natürlich gerne in unserem Forum posten und wir helfen so gut es geht.
  5. The step by step guide explains TOGA LK, basically you pulled the nose up too fast (you should rotate about 2-2.5°/sek which equals one "line" on the ADI per second). Therefore you got too slow and to counteract it the Airbus applied full thrust and locked it. That's TOGA LK in easy words. The manual gives you more details.
  6. Kiesel, freedom of speech does not apply to privat company forums like ours. This forum is part of our marketing and while everyone is welcome to post here everyone will have to respect our rules in here. Your lawyer will (for quite a fee) tell you the same.
  7. Hi Mike, what is your FMA showing in such a situation? The FMA tells you what the Airbus is doing, not the position of the levers. If you for example overrotated and entered TOGA LK mode and the Airbus enters VS mode because you selected the new altitude to late, then you could have created a situation where you will slowly run towards the overspeed. The FMA will tell you exactly what's going on.
  8. The MCDU calculatest the angle resulting of the speed entered for descend using IDLE thrust, taking into account any restrictions in the F-PLN page. If you want to calculate your descend manually make sure to use a sensible distance. Using the direct distance you get from the PROG page is not always the best idea. What we do in my airline is to make modifications to the FPLN without executing/inserting them, that way the computer calculates predicted crossing altitudes. We then enter one of them as a hard altitude in the flightplan after erasing the temporary plan again. This way we get a good usable VNAV path from the FMC while maintaining the whole arrival routing in case ATC needs us to fly the whole procedure. While we descend down we periodically update those estimation based on new info from ATC, etc. Example: Arrival at Hamburg for an ILS23 via the NOLGO23 transition. Assuming there is not a lot of traffic expected at the estimated time of arrival I would enter a direct from DH611 to PISAS and a speed of 185 at PISAS. This gives me about what I expect to get lateron from ATC. The FMC will then predict new altitudes backwards on the arrival. Let's say it would predict NOLGO at FL80. I would then erase the modifications we have just done and afterwards enter NOLGA at FL080 which I then execute/insert. Now the VNAV will bring us down "on profile" for the expected shortcut while we still have the whole transition in the box in case we do not get the shortcut. This is just a general procedure which works at most airports and arrivals. Of course occasionally you will have to fly a longer track which means you'll use up some more fuel because you have been lower, but better you're too low than too high. If you still want to calculate it in your head I use this way: Altitude x 3 + 1NM for each 10kt IAS above 200 +/- 1NM per 10kt head/tailwind. This gets you down quite well. But here again, make sure to calculate with some sensible info. If you're coming in from the wrong side and have to fly around the airport there's no sense using the direct distance from the PROG page (or the FIX INFO page) as you will fly at least another 25NM.
  9. Hi, thanks for the report, I forwarded it to our sales team to be checked out.
  10. Der magnetische Nordpol wandert im Jahr um mehrere hundert Kilometer, damit ändert sich dei magnetic heading. Da die Runwayrichtung in Degrees Magnetic angegeben wird, ändert sich somit die Ausrichtung real langsam, meistens ein Grad alle paar Jahre. Nach vielen Jahren kann das sogar dazu führen, dass sich damit die Runwaynummer ändert, da der neue Runwayheading gerundet zur nächsten Nummer gehören würde (so geschehen zB 2010 in EDLD. Am besten schaut ihr für die aktuellsten Zahlen in die NavDataPro oder Navigraph charts, denn diese sind das aktuellste Material für die Flugsimulation. VATSIM updatet die Karten soweit ich weiß nicht monatlich, sondern nur wenn es größere Änderungen, wie SID Identifyer, etc. gibt. Hier sei allerdings angemerkt, dass diese Zahlen nichtmehr zwangsweise mit dem Simulator übereinstimmen müssen, da dieser nicht immer 100% tagesaktuell ist.
  11. Then you know best that a quick a dirty fix has nothing to do with giving your best
  12. Our aim with the A330 will, just like with the A320, be to simulate the aircraft from the pilots day to day life perspective.
  13. Edit: The new version should now be available to all of you. Please check your shopaccount for: (DD_EPKK-KRAKOW-X_V2_FSX_P3D_FSXSTEAM.exe - 12.11.2018 07:23:00 | 558 MB)
  14. Hi, we never had an automatic takeoff function implemented in any of the FSX versions, neither we have one now. Just like in the real Airbus the pilot will have to rotate himself.
  15. Only the data which is required by LIDO customers is included. In Turkey I doubt any major airport would be removed any time soon (it's still very usable as alternate, emergency diversion, etc.), but in other parts of the world some airports are not included. Santos Dumont is one of those if I'm not mistaken as in South America many airlines fly on Jepp data and those using LIDO are not using Santos Dumont.
  16. Hi Frank, it is available already: https://www.aerosoft.com/de/flugsimulation/flight-simulator-x/szenerien/2545/epkk-krakow-x-v2?c=1030
  17. Hi John, sounds like you have a conflicting scenery installed. Anything from ORBX like FTX Vector or an AI traffic addon maybe? Try to disable their files for LGSK and see if that helps.
  18. Hi, 109.55 is the current frequency. We'll have to check with LIDO, it might just be a mistake in their chart. These things sometimes slip in occasionally, even with the best providers.
  19. If you select a wider gate size in the AFCAD AI planes might crash into another at those gates. The P3D AI engine is dumb, it will simply crash aircraft into one another or even into the user if the gates are big enough.
  20. You might be able to correct the frequency in the AFCAD with Airport Design Editor. As the earths magnetic field is stationary in the sim I would not recommend changing the course. This would only result in trouble with the ILS approach becoming offset.
  21. I don't think there is any way we can change this at the moment. This sounds like it is more something for TFDI to look into as that's basically what their program does.
  22. Hi, der LS Button zeigt lediglich den LOC und GS auf dem PFD an. Mit dem APPR Button fängt der Flieger diese ein. Das Keyword hier ist das FMA. Dieses zeigt dir immer genau an was der Flieger machen wird. Wenn der gewünschte Mode nicht im FMA erscheint, wird der Flieger das Manöver auch nicht fliegen.
  23. On some certain graphic cards the Dynamic Lights seem to have a larger impact than on others. On my personal GTX980 I always have a hugh loss of fps with DL, even it its just a few lights. Others having the same card and settings do not have such a large loss. Not just at Cologne, but at any airport.
