Arthur, does this require a complete uninstall of the old version and reinstall of v1.2.4.0....??

If that's the case I suppose you'll lose all of your'e installed liveries..??

I have about a dozen or so, and re-installing that many liveries is a bit of a chore..

I take it the managed speed bug isn't fixed yet.  (Where the plane just falls out of the sky.)

If you have the liveries installed and working correctly you only have to make backups using the Livery Manager - unistall the old version - install the latest and then use the Livery Manager to reinstall the liveries .

The only other way to do this is to copy the entire textures folder ( for each model/type) and copy the [fltsim=XX] entries ( only ) in the aircraft.cfg then replace them when the new version is installed . Repalcing the entire aircraft.cfg would overwrite any changes made to it so not recommended .

Well I tried that, but attempting to run the updater on my system results in the following message from the updater screen under the A318/A319 Professional tab....

Only regular updates are available for installation

Installed version: 1.2.3.1
Available version: 1.2.4.0 / RTM
Update Description:

*** A NEW INSTALLER IS AVAILABLE FOR THIS PRODUCT. ***
*** PLEASE DOWNLOAD IT FROM YOUR SHOP ACCOUNT! **

I've downloaded the installer but haven't run it yet, i'm going to take a look at the Aerosoft forum first before proceeding.

I will just uninstall old/reinstall new rather than use the updater.

This falling out of the sky thing -- I've never encountered it in about 100 hours.  Sounds fun though.

Probably the best idea Mace, i'll just use the backup feature of the livery manager as suggested earlier in the thread.

As for the falling out of the sky thing... Don't know if it sounds like fun, but it's certainly a great way to test your recovery from "unusual attitudes" skills....😁

I just did a flight identical to one where I had the managed speed bug and didn't encounter it. However it's a very unpredictable bug so I'm not going to rule it as fixed quite yet.

Just about. Sometimes the speed will be just above stall speed. Other times not so lucky! There's like a 279 thread post on the Aerosoft forums with absolutely no solution.

Actually, this issue has affected roughly 30 or so people out of over 10,000.  I've made more flights in the Airbus than probably anyone else (I've had it for years before it was released, so I'm understating, it's actually in incredible number of full flights, not to mention the testing), and I've never experienced it.

The good news is that one of our programmers spent many hours and upon hours trying to create it, and after 6 months of trying to do so he finally did experience it.  Even though this only affects an incredible small number of people relative to the number of people who have the Airbus, we want it working for everyone 100% of the time and our programmers are working hard to correct.

Guys, I'm not allowed to engage in support here, but there is a great thread in our forums on this.

https://forum.aerosoft.com/index.php?/topic/143363-managed-speed-issues/

 

My very best wishes to everyone.

Bull.  There are many more people that haven't reported it on your site.  And you're saying only 10,000 people have bought the new Airbus?  Bull.

Look, we can only go on what is reported to us, you understand that, right?  Do you know how many false reports have been made over the years on all sorts of products from many different developers?

Please, let's be rationale.  It's a problem for a few, and we're devoted to resolving it.  Not sure what else you want my friend.

Because that is roughly the number of people who have reported the issue to us.  As I explained above, that is all we can go on and beleive me, after 36+ years in this community I'm pretty aware of what goes on. 

I popped in to provide accurate and verifiable information in order to be helpful.  If you don't want to hear it, then just tell me.  But trying to stir things up about a product you don't even own and haven't tried?  Come on guys, we're all flight simmers and need to treat each other with respect.

Many thanks, and best wishes.
