Altimeter cross check incorrect

Recommended Posts

Just to let you know when the FO read back the altimeter on both occasions during my first flight, instead of saying one zero one six, he read out one zero one five.

 

Also would just like to thank you and congratulate you on an amazing product one again.

Glad you like it!

 

In certain occasions the FO will be off on the altimeter in the last digit as you described.

 

It's because the FS2Crew FO reads the altimeter out of FSX via the SDK, but the Airbus itself may be rounding up/down the altimeter in some instances.

Ok thank you for the reply. Have just done another flight and the baro ref was set to 1020 and the FO said 1019, seems to be one digit off on every flight I make so far

I am yes, Rex however I may be switching soon. I take the baro from fsx atis or ATC, even though that always seems to be different to the metar report in aivlasoft efb which is also taking weather from Rex.

 

So I'm taking it that, the FO does not take what it says from what is set in the aircraft or from what I say.

Correct, FO reads the altimeter based on the information provided by the Microsoft SDK.  However, the Airbus Altimeter would take its info from the SDK.

 

I think it's just a rounding issue.

 

Personally I don't recall experiencing it, though.

 

But I just hit the "B" key on the keyboard to set the altimeter.

Yes, I've only done one flight so far (busy reading the manual and flows) but this same difference happened to me. I'm using AS2012.

Try it with the default FSX weather.

 

As mentioned, it's a simple rounding issue.  It's maybe out of my hands.

I just sent you two guys a PM.

 

It's a minor rounding issue.  Hopefully you can confirm that my change works since I can't reproduce it.

Same here. Always the FO is off one digit  with his crosscheck. I'm using FSrealWXlite weather tool. I always thought, that if I use a weather addon, the fsx weather is off und replaced by the weather data of the tool....so where the FO get the wrong QNH ?? Using the default FSX weather is no option for me, because of flying online at VATSIM and IVAO .

I fixed it already... I just rounded the number up.

 

Fix will be in the next update out probably this weekend.

I can confirm that it works like a charm, Bryan, did you look into the other issue I mentioned later in the reporting email?

Yes, however since sleeping on it I'm actually wondering if I'm misunderstanding what they are, and are not the red and green tip lights,

Please check the Capt's flow document.

 

Capt (that's you) sets the exterior lights most of the time, but not always.

I thought that might be the answer, I guess I'm always in the zone of trying to take it all in because wing lights arnt in brackets with the rest of exterior lights listed, I don't consider them and simply miss them, I've gone from using the AXE co pilot and checklists to fs2crew so if its not in front of me... Lol
