  1. Well, you locked my post, pretty rude when you have not bothered to solve this. Things must have been too difficult for you. How dare you blame my PC? Not my PC. Problem is with the CRJ. I suspect, specifically with the FMC. See below reported on: ON THIS FORUM: https://forums.flightsimulator.com/t/aerosoft-crj-really-struggling-with-this-aircraft/386693/7 MEMBER: EgoisiticJOe REPORTS: im struugling to fly this thing to at the moment all my dials and gauges are frozen all because i was playing with the fmc. all the dials and controls are displayed and i can move buttons and stuff but nothing changes on dials and screens for example i reduce thrust to idle but airspeed does not show im slowing fmc i just can not do anything with it. its frozen completely MEMBER: Bodlinjack REPORTS: I have had this twice now . Sound is still there and switches move but don’t operate. I can cycle through all the views but it’s just frozen. AND AGAIN: I can’t remember exactly what i was doing the first time i think i was changing pages on the fmc keypad but the second time i was changing the nav 1 frequency. The odd thing was that the first incident got going again by itself. I had gone off and made a tea but not so the second time. MEMBER: aryerseO1 REPORTS: Yup has only happened to me once. Do you know exactly what triggered the freeze? Mine was loading an RNAV approach.
  2. Well we go from 'unflyable' to your reply as 'unacceptable' As I said, your plane is the only problem You obviously haven't read my post Your reply to me that you are then sure it is NOT a problem in the code makes no sense at all. As I pointed out YOUR plane is the ONLY problem I have. Everything else works well on my problem free system.
  3. Okay - deleted and re-installed. Can't do that from the hanger, why not? had to go to the marketplace to freshly re-install. Same version as before installed (0.1.3) Still a problem, no freeze this time but had to fly from 1st officer seat. Question mark says it all. Peeps who say it works fine for them, well that's the usual comment that you get on forums that is no help what so ever. MSFS works fine for everything for me except this plane. The stock A320Neo and the excellent FREE mod works perfectly. And Mathijs Kok how does that help that your so-called thousands have no problems. Maybe, they don't report them or maybe they are happy to do the absolute basic flying and not putting the aircraft to the test.
  4. Flying this airliner is not that difficult. I've made many flights since it's release with no problems. I certainly have not crashed as I read many have trying to learn it. My own job before I retired was as a programmer and manager of IT networks. Being precise is exactly what I do: 1. the FMS system is pretty straight forward 2. make sure there are no errors before flight 3. keep within the constraints of the flight envelope 4. Any problems notified, can easily be dealt with only one was the diff/pressure. Quickly solved as I saw that the pilots and passenger cabins were severely cold. Adjusted de-icing and parameters back to normal. In RL I would have noticed this before the warning. I would have been very cold, right? A screenshot would not have helped. All was frozen all be it the screen showed all was within normal parameters. The one thing I tried to do before the so called poltergeist (read manuals, a bit insulting don't you think, Crabby. Devs love people like you). Anyway the one thing I tried to do before the 'happening' was to amend something in the FMC as I wanted to divert (just for fun, mind) to another airport. I do have the latest update. No problems arose during the original version, well none that we don't know about. I am going to re-install and see if that solves the problem. MAYBE THAT BLACK THING IN THE PICTURE IS A POLTERGEIST AFTER ALL
  5. Something badly wrong with this plane. EGBB TO LOWI For the second time all screens frozen. Only wheels worked. Even the Reverser did not work. Managed to land at EDDM, that is only because of MSFS stupidly allowing the use of alerions, rudder even though the plane is cold dark (or maybe we have hydraulic arms). No control surfaces graphically worked. I had only ground reference and guesswork of my speed that I managed to land safely. Don't think that would have been the case in RL. Could not power down the engines or use any controls in the cockpit. I've been really enjoying this plane but as it is, it's unflyable in any realistic way. Please Aerosoft fix this! By the way, where on this forum does one report problems? BTW what is the black object in the picture? I originally posted yesterday on the flightsimulator.com forum-my post: LOWI to EGBB At this moment few miles from the English Channel. All electrical displays have frozen and no control over tbe AP which is on. Radio is working and hopefully I might be able to do a descent and landing at EGBB. Just waiting to see if the plane changes on the next leg. If not then my flight is surely doomed! Where is ATC when you need them? Post again later at the end of this ordeal. EDIT: Plane started to steeply rise: Discovered I had throttle control and primary flight control surfaces. NO secondary controls i.e. Flaps, spoilers. Wheels work. Disco button on AP worked but still showed AP as on. Had no idea of speed and only had ground reference. Made emergency landing at EBKT. Reversers worked and stopped just short of the end of the runway. Hairy moment! NOTE: Do not have failures turned on in the sim.
  6. Checked the FAQs - no solution found Last two flights I have lost a lot of power. Noticed something was wrong when taxiing, usually when you start to move, idle is fast enough and on occasion you need slight brakes. Now I have to use more power, idle is not enough. Got the CRJ configured (all weights etc entered) with no errors or omissions showing and flaps at 8, on take-off I get poor power, need to put it to MAX and quickly pull up the gear then flaps to stop stalling. Had to do the, thankfully, relative short flight in CLIMB mode all the way. The plane was in a steep AOA (spoilers and flaps in stowed config) . Trying any adjustment was really difficult. I did manage to land safely but it was terrifyingly difficult. Did this for two flights in different locations. Had done a dozen flight before this with no problems at all. Any ideas people?
