Fuel stuck at 1820 kg

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone. 

 

Last night I was flying from LTBA to LTBJ, A320 CFM.

 

10 minutes after take off, reaching FL240, to support an ATC exam on IVAO network, I re-routed and init the MCDU by typing in FROM: LTBA, TO: LTFJ, I was at like 50-60 miles away from LTFJ at that time.

I was level at FL240 when I re-init the route. I put in FL240 as cruise level, and didn't change the CI setting (30). 

 

It was a hectic night full of aircraft on the sector, and after a while, I checked my fuel: 1820 kg left. That felt a little bir concerning, but normal at the moment (Started with 3.7 Block fuel (for 178nm route) 20-30 min ago and was at FL240).

 

Then five minutes passed. 1820 kg still. Checked MCDU 3 FUEL & PAYLOAD Page: 1820 kg. It stayed there until I shut down.

 

Anyone had this? I'll try to reproduce this evening.

This was an issue a few versions back but we have not seen this for many many weeks. I really think this is due to older files.

Ok same flight, all the same parameters.

 

Bug didn't happen.

 

I think as you said, it should be some leftover old files. Users should restart their computer BEFORE an update as Mathijs said. 

 

AND/OR

 

Aerosoft may check their updater for such scenarios and do necessary corrections (additional controls etc) if any.

 

IMO:

Since it is kind of a user input, developer should consider all possible scenarios, a user can start the update process while the game running in the background. many may do that and then come back with a support ticket.

I had this issue tonight, flying EINN-KJFK in the A318. Loaded 18000kg at EINN, landed at JFK with the FOB indicator and Fuel page both claiming I had 2980kg on board, except I'd had that excact value since Newfoundland, however the total fuel burned value on the Fuel page correctly indicated the burned level of 17700kg (Yes, I landed with 300kgs... I apparently need to tweak the bias in PFPX for such long distance flights). I had not run the updater, but I bought and installed the product today so this was version whatever is currently packed in the installer. 

 

Prior to departure I had some issues with my graphics driver and used a save-file made just prior to push to avoid re-preflighting after a few sim restarts (though I had to preflight everything anyway, panel states didn't save). I also used the aircraft state page to set "ready to taxi" to expedite the departure as I had to get around to something else. I know all of these things are in general dumb decisions if you are aiming for a stable flight, but I thought I'd use this flight to see what gremlins would appear following such abuse.

Hello Meese,

The installer does not come with the latest version. Please run the updater to get the latest version.
