  1. mmh, I flew 13-14 hour flights without ever running into something like this back in the HF2 days. Haven't done any HF3 flight of this lengh yet.
  2. Emi

    FSDG ever on sale?

    Hi Herman, sometimes they are, however it's rare.
  3. Never tried it with FSX ATC, I either provide my own ATC or fly online.
  4. Yes I insert whatever level ATC clears me for. All I do is to request descent, which level I get cleared to is up to ATC.
  5. Your whole simulator looks like you're wearing very, very strong sunglasses. The Airbus just fits into the image, doesn't it? Go outside, climb up a tower, a hill or something and have a look across the landscape. Is it as dark as your sim? It most certainly isn't. So no surprise the Airbus is much darker than it should be as well if your whole simulator is.
  6. The A320 series does not have a localizer backcourse feature, you can hit the APPR button at angles greater than 90° as well. However it will not capture the glideslope before you have localizer capture. So there'd be no use doing so. The FMA reading is vital, the FMA is the way the aircraft communicates with you. Just because you selected something on the FCU it would by far not automatically be doing that. You need to check it's doing what it's supposed to do. As an example you might have hit Approach at a wrong point in time and it did arm, but not engage. The FMA will tell you. The FCU won't. Never ever rely on the automation doing something which you have not 100% confirmed it is actually doing. The moment you fail to check the automation is the moment where the aircraft flies you and not the other way round.
  7. I found that in most sceneries the PAPI does actually not give you proper information in P3Dv4. Addon airports as well as default. In real life, at least in our 737, we often get three reds on short final which is due to the PAPI being calibrated for the eye height of the largest aircraft normally using the airport. The glideslope is also not positioned correctly relative to the aiming point in most addon sceneries. What was the FMA when the plane told you to pitch up? Best would always be if you included screenshots of such situations. Generally both pitch and thrust need to be stable. ANY aircraft can be flown by pitch and power setting. Set a certain thrust (in the small Airbusses that's normally Gross Weight-4 = N1) and a certain pitch attitude and the airplane will fly a certain speed and descent angle once stabilized. If you use Autothrust or not is an airline philosophy. Boeing and Airbus say no. Then you have crashes like the MAX crashes where the pilots simply forgot the thrust at TOGA until impact. Most airlines here in Europe have the philosophy to either turn both (AP and AT) on or off at the same time.
  8. You could of course just copy the whole PFPX folder onto the other computer. C:\Users\Public\Documents\PFPX Data contains pretty much all your data.
  9. There will not be an FSX version of the A330, sorry. Write to support@aerosoft.com, maybe they can do something for you. Here in the forums it will not be possible to help you.
  10. And most certainly make Hifi aware as well, I also keep getting constant CTD's with the Active Sky beta for P3Dv5 in all other places, such as HEGN, LGRP, etc.
  11. Hi, You can not increase it, that's the range used by the actual aircraft.
  12. The Airbusses are not yet P3Dv5 compatible. They may or may not work, we can not give support, sorry.
  13. 24/06 is almost never used for takeoffs unless crosswind on the main runway approaches operational limitations. I believe in a year and a half based at CGN I used it maybe 3 or 4 times. Each of them during major storms only. Landing is a different story of course, we use 24 regularly for landing. 06 not that much, but it's also used.
  14. The LS button is only for Precision approaches, for NPA's please DO NOT push it as it will block the NPA indications from the PFD and overwrite them with an empty ILS scale.
  15. You should probably have informed yourself before the purchase what LIDO charts are. They are airline charts. Used by Lufthansa, etc. You won't get a refund because it was never advertised that cat A/B aircraft are included. Lufthansa Systems even lists all of this on their own tutorials on youtube:
  16. Because airports have no systems. And small aircraft don't have complex systems. Especially Carenado, Alabeo, etc. are just default system with nicer looks. I'm not an Aerosoft employee. Only a volunteering pilot, trying to help the flight sim community. I wrote my post in the same stlye you wrote yours. Try to reflect on it. As we say in Germany. "Wie man in den Wald hineinruft, so schallt es aus diesem hinaus". If you want a nice answer I suggest you to write in a nice tone next time. How do you believe those people who invest 10+ hours every day into getting things compatible feel if they read post like your "I can't believe......., It is obligatory........"? Write in a nice tone and I'll answer in one. Write like an ass and I'll be an ass.
  17. Should count as what? Shall we release an unfinished product which keeps crashing? I bet *then* you would express quite some different feelings. As it has been said a thousand times: P3Dv5 is not simply an updated v4. It's a new simulator with significant changes. If you are able to convert any product to the new sim within a matter of days Aerosoft will gladly hire you. You would probably become the lead developer in a matter of days. Now look at other complex aircraft addons. Tell me a single complex airliner which is fully compatible already. PMDG? No FSL? Nope Leonardo? Njet Now take a guess why. Of course Aerosoft can hire some extra developers to speed up development. Can I send that 50.000€ bill to your E-Mail address? There's a saying in software development: You want good, fast and cheap? Pick two.
  18. You, my friend, have no idea about software development.
  19. oh wow, I never noticed! Thanks a lot for your kind words Herman! Those ten years here in the forums went by really fast!
  20. You can make that setting within FTX Central, however please have a look into the manual or ORBX forums to find out the exact way. Keep in mind Aerosoft does not sell any ORBX products.
  21. Very nice video comparison. I am actually surprised how close it is. We're talking maybe a second in difference, that seems absolutely fine to me. Closer than many other addons, including study level ones!
  22. Some screenshots would be very helpful.
  23. You'd leave the FD on as long as it gives good information. When it does not give you useful information (for instance if there's no runway waypoint in the FMC). Otherwise you'd leave them ON; unless you want to turn them off. If you *want* to turn the FD's off to practice raw data flying you can do so at all time when you want. The Bird is available with both FD ON and OFF. If you're flying an NPA it can be good practice to turn it on to monitor the flight path angle. It is not mandatory however, but simply good practice. I assigned FSUIPC to send a keyboard command and then use the default Z key for it. Please open your own topic and don't hijack others though.
