  1. Hi, I get occasional CTD (I would say 50% of cases) when I accept a f-plan modification after I choose a STAR. When it happens, it's always after I have inserted a STAR, deleted a discontinity, and I get CTD when I click to accept the modification. I realized that I will have a CTD when in the f-plan accept/erase page I cannot see the waypoints displayed (in orange). I don't think it is related to the airport, it happened at LIRF and LIMJ. I have FSX-Sp2, A320/321 v1.31. Win 10. Cycle updated to 1912. Thanks for any help!
  2. Thank you for all of your comments! I also realized that A321 changed its engines from 30000 to 33000 lbf during the time, so the performances comments that I found maybe were related to different engines installations. Aerosoft's aircraft.cfg is at 33000 lbf; in case I could derate this value just a little bit. So I have just a last question: considering an equal TOW (and same engines), does the real A320 and A321 climbing optimal performance become almost similar? Thanks
  3. Ok thank you! Is there any way to adjust some aircraft.cfg or airfile parameters to achieve it?
  4. Hi, Iread surfing in the web that A321 is poorer than A320 in climbing performance. I found in your file "aircraft_a320_a322.xml" an interesting line named "climb_factor 1.0" that is the same for A320. Could I modify that value to 0.8 in order to reduce the climbing performance in A321? Could works or it's too simple? Thanks for any comments
  5. I don't think so. However IMHO it shouldn't be so important. That guide gives you operational informations about how to pilot your airbus.
  6. Yes I have a non precision approach (npa) paragraph in the last part of my step by step guide. What airbus version you have? Mine is v1.31 (Fsx) You get an energy circle in navigation display if you choose a selected/selected RNAV. Otherwise you need to follow the Vdev diamond on PFD display. Normally you can get the path angle in the airport charts, as far i know there isn't the angle information in Mcdu.
  7. Yes RNAV is modelled. I get VDev magenda diamond on PFD when following this kind of approach after D waypoint activation. I also switch to Trk on FCU. Are you sure that you follow all the step by step guide passages?
  8. Ok, so no way to insert a wpy or a circle? Is it the same as in real Airbus?
  9. Hi, how I could modify my F-plan to follow in managed a circling approach? I.e. LIMJ, I get Rwy 10 by ATC that doesn't have approaches loaded in my database. What I normally do is a manual circling approach by arriving on Rwy 28. But by MCDU programming?
  10. Hi are you using some control hardware? Did you use a weather engine during that? Do you have FSUIPC installed?
  11. Yes it's an adapting system. I.e. my extra fuel Mcdu's calculation goes always negative at first but after a while it displays the correct value
  12. Hi, I'd like add a new functionality in the ATC comm page that is not operative in my FSX A320 v1.31. I'd like add the possibility to retrieve a short message about ATIS/arrival airport weather just by inserting arrival ICAO. Is it a crazy idea or could be feasible by xml coding? Thank you
  13. There is an Aerosoft's folder in your pc Documents folder
  14. You can also download the entire flight plan (links are in the Areosoft planner software that comes with installation) and load it into Mcdu without inserting waypoint by waypoint
  15. Is it your installation outside Program Files folder? It should
  16. Hi, I have just tested in a flight. Condition #1 Clear sky (no external weather software), 1013 mb. BARO knob: Std 28000 ft selected in FMC 28000 ft reading in PFD 28000 ft of altitude in shift+z info Fsx's ATC confirmed my FL at 28000. Condition #2 Cloudy sky (by FSXWX freeware weather software), 1005 mb BARO knob: Std 28000 ft selected in FMC 28000 ft reading in PFD 27750 ft of altitude in shift+z info Fsx's ATC told me that my FL was 277. But if I changed to 1006 mb (the closest ground weather station), I g
  17. Yes but if the sim tells you that there are no discrepancies between FMC reading and your actual altitude by shift+z..... so what i could guess is that on-line ATC is wrong for some reason
  18. If you press "Shift + Z", you get several informations about your speed, altitude, heading, wind, your position, screen frame rate (press several time to cycle them)... in the upper left corner of your monitor. As these informations come from the internal sim values, they are just correct. So you can compare them with what you see on your FMC and assess for discrepances eventually.
  19. Hi did you check the accordance of your FMC altitude against what you read in the info by pressing shift+z ?
  20. Did you change barometer knob to Standard in the FMC at transition altitude?
  21. I think it works when you are airborne. During airborne, if you push the knob it displays ---, otherwise (pull) it displays the selected airspeed.
  22. Hi, how could I get softer the nose gear damper? Which aircraft.cfg value? When nose gear touches the runway it seem too much hard to me. I'd like a softer bump Thanks
  23. As far I know, Airbus do no recommend to turn off autothrust. So to keep the aircraft in the path I could use air brakes in order to diminishing the speed and increase vertical speed. If you miss the ILS path, you can follow it on PFD (pressing LS button, on side to the FD button) or on ND display trying to catch it again. In case of a non precision approach you can activate V/Dev dot on PFD diplay pressing APRR button (LS button off) and keep the path degree with the Trk function. So in all these cases, you should catch the right path again with Autopilot On and just in case you are too fast
  24. Throttle control (and so speed) is automatic untill you disable it by pressing the A/Thr button (not recommended). You could make some auto-land just following ILS path: what the aircraft does should be the correct thing. But in what conditions? During a non precision approach? Did you pass the DH?
  25. Hi, i have some questions. Did you try to disable your registered copy of FSUIPC? Does your joystick have an axis assigned to rudder/stearing? In case yes, did you try to stear by hitting keyboard key?
