  1. This usually means that both ports (6881 and 6882) are not forwarded (on both computers). For complete assistance, please see the OVPA Guides. Best wishes!
  2. 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.
  3. Alex, since we haven't heard back from you, I'm going to close this thread hoping that your issue has been resolved . If you need further assitance with this particular issue feel free to PM me and I will open this thread back up for you. Best wishes.
  4. If Mathijs will forgive me, I'd like to expand a bit on his answer. If you are not a pilot, and are simply new to wonderful world of flight simulation (welcome, by the way!), then chances are you are spending your time learning both the sim and the aircraft(s). As such there is no need to pay to upgrade your NavData. I would wait until you start flying commerical or business aircraft using real world flight plans, and even then you don't have to upgrade your NavData as you can usually get flight plans based on the AIRAC that you are using. If you ever venture into the world on online flight simulation (live, human Air Traffic Controllers, up to date real world flight plans, etc. etc. etc.) that's when you'll want to keep your NavData up to date. Until then, you're fine just as you are. I hope this is helpful to you, and again, welcome to the wonderful world of flight simulation! There are many different doors in front and ahead of you as you enjoy and learn about this hobby. I haven't been bored yet and I've been doing this for over 40 years! Best wishes!
  5. Speaking as someone who used to use Airborne Radar/Weather Radar for a living, I can tell you that this topic is FAR more complex than one might first imagine. I also spent WAY too much time over a 7 months head to head analysis and comparison of different ESP weather engines and aircraft radars than I ever should have. I intended to write a guide for this back then and present it during a Flight Sim Web Conference, but an early Windows 10 update flamed my system hard drive (where I stupidly had too many important things saved) and my work was lost. Remembering this is a simulation, overall the weaher engine inputs and weather radar displays for P3D were pretty realistic overall, though I was always a fan of what Aerosoft did in the Airbus matching the real world counter part. The most realistic WXR I ever used in flight sim was the Leonardo Maddog for FSX, and in my opinion the Leonardo P3D Maddog WXR wasn't quite as good as the FSX version was. Now when I say that, I'd bet that not too many flight simmers cared to learn about how PRF works and how and why it can alter what you see on the radar display, but that old FSX Maddog WXR did a great job simulating with that! Mathijs is spot on correct, once a radar signal is reflected (often partially, depending on what generated the return, what the range is, and what the power of the WXR is and what PRF is selected) it can't return what's behind it. But there is a LOT of things that must be considered when we're talking about this, even more than alredy mentioned. My best guess is that we'll see WXR in MSFS by the Spring, and in third party aircraft sometime after that. Best wishes!
  6. If an update changes (provided a new) aircraft.cfg file then the entries for the liveries will be missing in that file. These entries point to the livery files location, so the liveries might still be there, but there is nothing to load them. We always advise you back up your aircraft.cfg file before applying updates. Hope this is helpful to you!
  7. Sorry to hear you are having difficulties. I'm the author of the OVPA Guides, so I'll be happy to try and help. First, excellent choice on the Majestic as well as the Airbus! I was on both development/test teams, and they are terrific aircraft. I have one question before we get started. There are three different versions of the Aerosoft Airbus, and the last two are the only ones with Connected Flight Deck (CFD). The versions are the Airbus A318/A319 and A320/A321 for FSX/P3Dv3, and the Airbus Professinal (also comes in the A318/A319 and A320/A321) for P3Dv4 and P3Dv5). The OVPA Guide applies to only the FSX/P3D version which uses a Direct Connection for CFD, while the P3Dv4/v5 "Professional" version uses server based Connected Flight Deck. Which version of the Airbus are you using?

  9. Bob is absolutely correct. There are actually three different versions of the Airbus (the Airbus X is only one of them) that were developed over many years, and there are liveries for all versions of the Airbus. In some cases an livery developed for an older version may be modified by the user to work with the latest version of the Airbus Professional, but for the older versions of the Airbus you'll have to ensure the downloaded livery is made for the Airbus X. This information should be in the description. Best wishes!
  10. As far back as I can remember, the standard advice in the flight sim world as been to disable computer security while installing addon software. This prevents temp files from being quarantined and other negative affects during the installation process. Myself and others have written lengthy disseratations explaining why developers of security software have rarely cared to exclude flight sim addons so that false postives don't occur and at this point it's up to the individual to either accept this or not and move forward accordingly. In the end it's your system and you shold operate it has you feel comfortable. All I'm doing is reporting on the facts and reporting how to avoid problems. What I do is disable compujer security, run the installer, and re-enale computer security directly after the installation is complete. Best wishes.
  11. You can install all of them and then reboot. Best wishes!
  12. Hello Tiago! Welcome to the forum and to Aerosoft! I've been flying the Aerosoft Airbus series for many years and I'm sure you will enjoy them tremendously! Don't forget that the Aerosoft Airbus series has a VERY special feature not found on any other Airbus, which is Connected Flight Deck (CFD). CFD allows you to share the aircraft with two people operationally, and more than two people as observers. You can read more about CFD in the documentation. There are two types of updates, the first and most common is a patch and the other less common type requires a New Installer. The Aerosoft Updater will provide you with notifications for both types of updates. Patch Type Update Use the Aerosoft Updater tool to check for any available updates of Aeroosft products including the Aerosoft Airbuses. I recommend most people select "Show Experimental Updates" (such updates have been tested by our team) by clicking "Configuration" located at the lower bottom of the Updater window and then check the "Show available experimental Updates for my products" box. New Installers From time to time there is an update published which requires customers to download a new installer. In such cases the updater will inform you that such an update is available and will provide you with instructions on how to obtain the update. Cusotmers must download the new (updated) installer(s) from the company they purchases the product from and in the case where the product was purchased from a company other than Aeroosft it make take a few days for the partner company to make the update available to their customers, by rest assured that we provide the update to partner companies as soon as it is available. Best wishes my friend!

  14. If I recall correctly, the views themselves are hard coded. You can edit the order they appear, or should I say "cycle through" views in the aircraft.cfg, but it is not possible to edit or change the views themselves. What I recommend is using Chaseplane. It's easily one of the veryt best applications ever developed for P3D and it's an application that you'll never regret purchasing. In fact, I won't fly without it! Best wishes.
  15. The best thing to do is reach out to the developer of GSX since that is the product you are having issues with. Best wishes my friend!
  16. The product was designed as an A330-343 (passenger aircraft), not as a freighter. To my knowledge the only real world freighter versions are the -200's, though that might have changed recently. There may be a few freighter liveries done by third parties, though I don't know of any. If there are a few liveries they will not have operational main deck cargo doors as this is part of the code not is not adjustable or changable by repainters. The same cargo doors used by the passenger aircraft will exist and be functional. Best wishes.
  17. I disagree. My CPU is a forth generation i7 processor (4770K) while yours is a ninth generation. MY GPU is an NVIDA 1080 (vanilla) and yours is far more advanced than mine. If I were you I would consider overclocking just a bit but you should be fine without it. Lastly, try my settings. Best wishes.
  18. From the AVSIM CTD Guide: Kernelbase.dll – A system file so a problem with your computer system. FSX or P3D just happened to be running when the event occurred. Related to StackHash errors and NTDLL.dll errors (see below). No known fix but some have solved this problem by - • Settings too high. Rebuild FSX/P3D config. • Updating or reinstalling their video card drivers. • Scanning your system for corrupt/missing files. • Disable startup programs by typing msconfig in the Windows search box. When open, look at the Startup tab and disable all startups (they are all not needed for operation of your computer). • User Profile Corrupted – last resort, fix possible corrupted user profile. Also, a CPU or GPU overclock can cause the problem you are having. My personal recommended P3D Settings: Best wishes!
  19. Sounds like you have a second EDDM AFCAD installed. The first one installed before our scenery will have priority, so it has to be found and removed. Alternatively, it could be that the installation didn't work properly. You can uninstall, manually check to ensure the scenery folders are removed, reboot, and then reinstall being sure to run the installer as Administrator. I hope this helps!
  20. That can be caused by a number of different things (not Airbus related) and unless it's something you can duplicate each time it's rather hard to nail down. One thing that is known to cause this in P3D is having settings a little too high for conditions (weather, traffic, etc.), or having older AI Aircraft or Ship textures being called. Another thing is weather station data (including made up weather stations which is done by Active Sky to help with weather data interpolation), we've actually seen that a number of times over the Atlantic when crossing East to West and most often within 300nm or so from the European coastline. If you'll post your P3D settings (screen shots only please) I'd be happy to take a look at them for you. Higher settings don't always mean better visuals or performance. Also please provide your system specs.
  21. Yeah, Version 5.2 is just out, you simply have to give developers time to adjust their software for it.
  22. I'm pretty sure it wil not work, and if it does it won't work for all the aircraft functions. Best wishes.
  23. There is a setting in MCDU#3 which may help you with the 250<10,000ft. Regarding the A/THR issue at 24,000ft, we'd have to have a lot more info including all the weights, both INIT A and B pages, waypoints and programmed speed, and a short video showing the problem. Look forward to hearing back from you!
