  2. Adjusting “Ambient Occlusion” in the graphics settings menu controls shadow intensity. Perhaps it is set too high?
  3. Will the FMS database still be based on Navigraph or Aerosoft AIRAC data as it is in FSX/P3D? The default MSFS NavBlue nav data is of poor quality (especially in the US). There are many missing or obsolete procedures. I am using the new Navigraph beta replacement for the default MSFS nav data and it is much better.
  4. Highly recommended! I run this on a regular basis, especially after installing new software that might have downgraded an existing VCC redistributable.
  5. Unfortunately this is a common problem, and Microsoft is partly to blame. Their VCC runtime installers should either refuse to install an older version of a runtime if a newer one already exists on the computer, or at least give a warning message that the existing runtime is about to be replaced by an older version, requiring the user to either approve or cancel the reversion before it actually gets installed.
  6. Yes, a massive overloading of the aircraft could cause that problem for sure. Glad you found it. Do understand though, that if you are in managed speed mode in climb, decreasing the airspeed setting will only make the nose pitch up farther than it already is. The only way to get the nose to pitch down is to dial in a higher airspeed.
  7. The only time the spoilers will automatically deploy on any CRJ is on landing. If they are coming out by themselves in flight, it would seem to indicate something is corrupt or otherwise bugged in your installation, or you may have an axis or switch in your hardware that has been inadvertently assigned to spoilers. Either problem could have something to do with the problems you are experiencing. In your first screen shot, the commanded speed shows 180 knots, which should never be done at that high of an altitude. If the commanded speed went to 180 by itself, then there is definitely
  8. As Hoffie and Emanuel said, you are flying much too slow in the climb. In climb mode, the aircraft uses pitch to control airspeed. You are telling the aircraft to climb at 190 knots. With the engines set at climb thrust, the only way the aircraft can achieve 190 knots is to pitch the nose way higher than normal. In your first screen shot, the PFD shows your pitch angle is almost 10 degrees. At that high of a pitch angle, drag is going to become massive, and lift will be very low. Above 10,000 feet, the CRJ should climb at an indicated airspeed of at least 270 knots, but performance wi
  9. Luc, I hope the APU door system on the 700/900 is more robust than on the 200. Since you fly the 200 as well, I’m sure you have encountered the “DOOR INHIBIT CLOSED” message from time to time when trying to start the APU during descent or after landing. Normally not difficult for maintenance to clear the fault, but “no APU for you” until it is cleared. The APU door position sensing system on the 200 is a poorly-designed cheap piece of [censored]

  12. The LEGS page would be the proper place to clear a discontinuity, rather than the FPLN page. There are some other problems though. You are trying to load an RNP approach, and a real CRJ is not legally authorized or even capable of flying an RNP-based RNAV approach. In the real aircraft database, none of the LOWI approaches prefixed with “RNP” would even appear on the approach page as options. You would be limited to the LOC 26, or the LOC DME E or LOC DME W. In the Navigraph database, every available approach for a given airport will be present. Although the sim version
  13. I just completed this flight, and I did have an LNAV problem. I used the same flight plan and aircraft. ASPD3 (Beta 7) weather was active, which gave almost a direct tailwind of 46 knots at FL 370 NO problems on the J523 segment, but the aircraft left the NAV track between BCE and TCS. That is a 361 nm direct leg between those two waypoints. When I was about 1/3 along the route segment, 133 nm past BCE, with 228 nm still to go to TCS. the aircraft slowly turned about 40 degrees to the left, and started flying away from the course line. I let it go about 10
  14. I’m not sure that the CRJ uses TFDI RealLight? Perhaps Hans can confirm. The CRJ installer does appear to install TrueGlass. I disabled both dlls in the P3D /gauges folder by renaming them, because both are VRAM hogs. One or the other dll might indeed be responsible for a drop-off in performance after an hour or two of flight. I’ve seen that reported in the LM forums by users of several different add-on aircraft.
  15. Thanks. I will try this flight. Were you using Active Sky or other r/w weather?
