Hi guys!

 

I recently got chaseplane... I am very impressed and happy to say it is money well spent.

 

I have issues with the Aerosoft Airbus and was reading the topic regarding aerosoft issues.

 

My issue is that if I am in internal view the view would revert to main panel glareshield. This meant that all my views were shifted to the right and misaligned. I would go to the cockpit view (chaseplane) and the views would fit. If I switch to external view and revert back or if I open another window it would revert back to main panel glareshield and force me to go in the menu bar and change it back.

 

It was odd as sometimes I would have this issue and sometimes it would stay in cockpit views.

 

After looking at the aircraft cfgs I have found the problem.

 

In all the CFM Aircraft the CFG looks like this: 

_______

InitialPbh = 14.5, -0, 0
Hotkeyselect = 1
_______
 
In all the IAE Aircraft it is:
_______
InitialPbh = 14.5, -0, 0
// (Disabled by ChasePlane)Hotkeyselect = 1
_______
 
 
This means that for every model A318, 19, 20, 21 Chaseplane only fixes only half of the views.
 
 
Therefore if you fly say an IAE and align your views with the normal COCKPIT VIEW (CHASEPLANE) then fly an CFM Variant then the default view will be MAIN PANEL GLARESHIELD and your views will be misaligned.
 
I think this will help a lot of people and can alert the folks working on Chaseplane that their changes only work on half the airbus models and to make it so they apply to all CFM and IAE variants of all types of Airbuses to avoid confusion.
 
Thanks,
Ethan Hunt

Do you have an "aircraft misconfigured" error when launching the aircraft?

The configuration should be applied on every aircraft equally.

 

 

If you don't, can you generate a report file from ChasePlane's Preferences and send it here (please remove email addresses from the documents before posting).

 

Best Regards,

Keven

I have manually deactivated the hotkeys in half the planes with "//" so not sure what help this report will be.

 

I just wanted to point this out cause i got no errors and was very confusing of why half the planes do not work.

 

Thanks

Son, the aircraft.cfg file of the loaded aircraft (Aerosoft Airbus A320 CFM located in C:\Microsoft Flight\SimObjects\Airplanes\Aerosoft Airbus A320 CFM\aircraft.cfg) has the hotkeys lines commented.

 

Everything is as expected from what the Report says.

perhaps i will have mixed my cfms and iae. I will check out which plane has the problem and generate a report file.. 

 

Sorry,

Ethan
