Lock-upsWhile on a gps rwy 08 approach(using it's waypoints plugged into the cdu) to KAST while working with the cdu on the legs page either deleting a waypoint or closing up a route dicontinuity I've experienced a total lock-up of fs9. It's happened 3 separate times. No big deal as with a complicated product there'll be a few bugs and you guys always fix them. The aircraft was the -200 frieghter. My machine is a laptop hp zd8000, p4-3.2, 256 meg ati x600 video and 1 gig ddr2, o/s is xp media. Hope this helps. Dave

Warning Bells As I recall with the T7, this bird in it's current state tends to throw error messages at every possible time. During pre-flight, during engine start, etc...I'm hoping that this can be rectified as it is a very shrill and annoying set of warnings that are only alerting normal pre-flight conditions. Also, as with the T7, the cockpit is as quiet as a library until engine start. No ambient sound (fans whirring, air moving from air vents, etc.). Now I'm sure that there are some sounds in the cockpit (not warning bells) up until enginge start. Thanks for addressing the important issues first though, PSS. It is appreciated. How often does Microsoft fix software issues within 36 hours of release??-adam

Re my above ock-up postI was using only LNAV and doing the VNAV manually via the autopilot and using the auto-throttle. Dave

No engine sound in most of the versions. Only the Cargo 200 has external engine sound and fades away with full throttle.ThanksMohammed

- APU Run light does not flash twice during start.- APU EGT rise unrealistic during APU startup.- No duct pressure drop when packs turned on, etc- Trim Air Off light as well as Fltdk/Fwd/Aft Trim Air zone lights illuminate when pneumatics turned off.- No Level B Aural warnings when Left sys hydraulics lost. Works fine for Center and Right. R u guys trying to model in the PTU, because I do notice 1250 psi on the Left Hydraulics in this scenario. Should be higher.- The flaps did not extend without hydraulics, which I was happy about. But the Leading Edge/Trailing Edge lights on the center panel did not illuminate for the handle disagree- No EICAS messages for L&R Recirc Fans. The Emergency lights EICAS is programnmed. Just wodnering if these were missed. - I get Level B aurals on startup and shutdown. Unrealistic and annoying- During startup, N3 timing with relation to N2 unrealsitic. They do not turn almost simultaneously.Corey

How about starting a corresponding PSS generated thread, listing what PSS regard as bugs to be fixed and as "nice to haves" which will not? Once people see a bug on the PSS "to be fixed" list they will stop reporting it. I'd like to know whether the aural warning issues will be addressed. They never were on the 777 and are very annoying.Kevin

Hello,I don't know if this has already been reported:In the "select plane" > "757-300 RR engines" there is a double JMC livery. One of them (the 1st one) must be Condor.This is after a 2nd install on sept 1st +/- 20:00 zulu.Pete EHAM

This happened after I installed the update. So just to clear things up there was no problem with this b/f the update.Kevin K.

CDU works after reinstalling with the update. But it has the following problems. First, on a flight frm KLGA to KATL, after the inital load of the flight plan, and after CDU align completion, the CDU showed distance to KATL as 304 miles. On aproaching MOL as the entry into the FLCON1 STAR, I was unable to access the arrival page for KATL. It still showed arrivals for KLGA, and the distance to KATL on the PROG page showed 188 miles. I had tomanually enter the waypoints for the FLCON1. After I did this the true distance to KATL was finally displayed on the PROG page (327 miles). And I was able to finally get to the ARR page for KATL, long after my flight was already into the STAR I entered manually. The TOD was calculated by the CDU to be 180 miles (from FL360) from KATL. Since this was east ops for KATL, the STAR called for 14000' at BYRDS. I would have started down 150 miles from BYRDS. Way too early for that descent profile.

Just purchased my copy and the CDU is certainly not too responsive at times. I'll click a button such as "PROG" and it takes a few moments for it to actually switch to that page.
