  1. If you're using ActiveSky for P3Dv4, would you please try the options file below and see if that makes a difference? Aerosoft CFD Settings V1.1.zip To use, place the file in the same place as your original configuration file, start ActiveSky, select Options, and the User Presets and then select the file and restart ActiveSky.
  2. Yeah, wow! You're settings are absolutely horrible for flying airliners. Maybe, and I mean MAYBE okay for a General Aviation aircraft on a clear day, but most anything else and... well, pretty terrible. Anyway, I'm sure that's at least part of the problem you're having. Below are the settings in a config file which I've posted here in our forums for quite some time and it's corrected the issue you're having for many of our forum members. I believe they will not only be better on your frame rates but far more realistic as well. Place the file in the same place as your original configuration file, start ActiveSky, select Options, and the User Presets and then select the file and restart ActiveSky. You should be fine after that. You might want to give some consideration to joining and becoming active in the Aerosoft Flight Sim Community, where you'll learn a lot about flight sim from our classes held in our virtual classroom and from other members, but know ahead of time the classes, special meetings, special events, shared cockpit/Connected Flight Deck with members and special discounts are only for active members so if you don't have the time to join us at least once a week I would skip it. Best wishes! Aerosoft CFD Settings V1.1.zip
  3. Ok. I'm away from home so I'll dk my best to check this tonight. One of the orher tech guys may chime in.
  4. Because we believe this topic has been answered we have closed it. If you have any more questions feel free to open a new topic.
  5. Connected Flight Deck (CFD) does not work with the Steam version of the Airbus. Basically, Dovetatil Games took our software and modified it, and in so doing they agreed to take on technical support for the Steam version of the Airbus. If you are interested in CFD, you could request a refund of the Steam version and purchase the Airbus from our store - then CFD will work. You must have two different serial numbers for CFD to work, one for each computer. I hope you found this helpful. Best wishes.
  6. Also, please be sure you are running P3D as Administrator, this is important.
  7. Nick, something tells me the installation did not go as planned. I suspect you have Microsoft's One Drive active for your Documents folder or you forgot to disable your Computer Security and/or to run the Airbus Installer as Administrator. You can try this. 1. Uninstall the Airbus. 2. Ensure One Drive is disabled for your Documents folder. 3. Carefully follow the procedure in the thread below. Let us know how that works for you! NOTE: If the above doesn't work, don't uninstall the Airbus again. Instead please download, unzip and run our Discovery Tool and post the information here in this thread. But please don't do this unless the procedure above does not work. ASVersionInfo.zip
  8. The Boss is talking about C++ Redistributibles, which most flight sim software is programmed with. We''ll be able to help you, but to do so please download, unzip and run the file below and post the results here in this forum. ASVersionInfo.zip
  9. As you hold a position with a Virtual Airline, I'm guessing you're familiar with the fact that default FSX airports is from the circa early 2000's, and today many people are using NavData products to update the NavData which includes NAVAID and ILS Approach Frerequencies. But if the scenery doesn't match the frequeny that the Aircraft FMS/FMGS has, the FMS/FMGS in the aircraft will never hear the signal because the airport is on a different (older) frequency. To resolve this, you have to update the airport data in FSX. You can do this multiple ways, such as 1) installing an updated AFCAD which may be freely available at various sites such as AVSIM and Flightsim.com, you can edit the existing AFCAD yourself using the freeware tool Airport Design Editor, or you can purcahse a payware airport - and believe me that makes all the difference in the world and is the very best option. Aerosoft has an EXCELLENT airport for CIAMPINO for FSX all the way through P3Dv4.5 in our shop, and I flew in and out of that airport just last week - it was terrific! I would strongly urge you to give our scenery a try! Best wishes.
  10. Are you talking about the Charts for the EFB in the Airbus, or just NavData for the Airbus which is used in by the FMGS/MCDU for flight plans?
  11. Just a little more information about this. Aerosoft produced 3 different versions of the Airbus, and A320 and then at least two versions of the A318/A319/A320/A321 and given the immense popularity of our Airbus' products repainters from around the globe produced many liveries over the history of the product line. To further complicate things, we've had three different versions of the Livery Manager which were necessary to keep up with improvements such as HDR and PBR (which make the liveries look fantastic). These changes require changes and additional files and formats to be directly compatible with the latest Livery Manager for the Airbus Professional Series. Given the number of liveries created by third parties, there isn't anything WE can do to change all those liveries AND we run into a copyright issue since we did not create nor do we own those third party liveries. In the near future we hope to create new instructions on how to convert older liveries along with the necessary files, but given the number of liveries created for different Airbus product it's still going to be some trial and error on the user part. Should you wish to find this information now you can search our forum for "Livery Manager" and you'll have to go through a few threads to put all the information together. Right now our team is very busy working on the P3Dv5 converstion so right now we simply don't have the time do this. We're sorry for this inconvenience, but we also see this as a testament to how popular our Airbus line has been and our willingness to update these products to the latest technology and capabilities of P3D. While you wait for this, you can also try to find the livery or liveries you're looking for on AVSIM and especially on the iniBUILDS website. There are other locations to find our Airbus liveries and they can be found via a Google Search for "Aerosoft Liver". I hope this is helpful to you! Best wishes for happy flights!
  12. The latest version for P3Dv4.5HF3? Can you please use the ASUpdater to get the actual version number? Also, can you please copy the ActiveSky "Prepa3d3DOptions.cfg" file and past it in your reply? The file is located at: C:\Users\[YOUR USERNAME\AppData\Roaming\Hifi\AS_P3Dv4\Options folder.
  13. I've never done carrier ops in FSX/P3D, but there is helpful information in Volume 1 and Volume 7 of the F-14 Documentation. Let me know if that works for you.
  14. The information you are seeking is located in Volume 1 of the Documentation. I haven't had FSX or the very old version of the Airbus you're using installed for over 8 years, but I reinstalled so I would have the documentation to point you the answer in the documentation this final time. Best wishes my friend!
  15. One Drive is a local user feature provided by Microsoft product which commonly ties your Documents folder to a folder out on the Internet, and it is NOT accessible by flight sim software given the networking involved. If you will search our forums, you'll find several issues related to One Drive and our advice is to disable it for the Documents folder. You need to fix this yourself and if you need support please Google "How to disable One Drive" or contact Microsoft. Again, it's not our software. Before disabling One Drive, you will need to first uninstall the Airbus. The truth is (and I'm sorry to have to be the one to tell you this) if you're going to enjoy our hobby beyond a very basic level you will need to develop at least an average level of knowledge about computing or wait for MSFS to be released next year and get an Xbox to enjoy things. But if you choose to develop the requisite level of knowledge then the good news is that we've had flight sim forums for 40 years and their is a wealth of information to be had on any subject in the hobby for the price of a Google search. I don't want you to thin that you are the only one who has to do this, we all have, and I'm going through this all over again with a different flight sim software and it's tough going from a very knowledgeable position to novice all over again.... but it's worth it.
