Thank you Jim.  Running the installer presents the option to repair or remove.  Repair?

Very underrated aircraft; unlike past Capt Sim offerings, this ones A/T and AP systems function flawlessly.  The SDK makes SPAD configs a breeze.  I picked it up 25 USD and consider it one of the best value purchased in a long time

The autopilot/autothrottle functions were not perfect in the previous version, although it appears (based on that FIXED list) that VNAP SPD mode might be working properly now. I am also curious to know if the "take off trim setting" problems have been corrected....

They were corrected in 1.3, I believe.  For me, this aircrafts automated systems are persistently reliable now.  Again, in my situation, that wasn’t always the case with other CS offerings. Also, they’re now listening to their customers and have added several requested features (e.g ability to load fuel/pax via FMC, V1/VR/V2 call outs, etc). The FDE still needs to be tweaked as I find it a little ‘loose’ on approach.  Otherwise, it’s a really good rendition of the 757 and I hope the carry the code forward to a 767.

They were definitely not corrected in 1.3, as that was the version that I tested.

Howdy:

Holding off the update.  Someone in the CS forum is reporting issues. 

Also, I too am waiting to confirm if this is a full or update only install.

CS communication is not the best.

 ability to load fuel/pax via FMC.  

I didn't know this was possible with this plane? That's a pretty good feature.

It certainly is! I just wish that it’d give an indication of maximum amounts. I’m currently sort of guessing what loads to punch in, which can be a bit bothersome.

It does it automatically (after clicking on Request).  No need to punch anything.

Where does it gather information from when using the request button or is it random?

I plan my flight in pfpx, write down my fuel and zfw figures and plug those in.

I believe you're describing a different page. I'm talking about the 'fake' loading pages where you can determine the number of pax, cargo weight, short/normal.long haul fuel loads, etc. I wish they would have included maximum amounts that the aircraft can hold, so I have a reference of how many pax I can load, for instance. I didn't see that there's a 'request' button here?

I’m not sure why you need the max values?  They should be listed on your dispatch and/or load sheet. 

If your weights are outside the envelope, you won’t be presented with vSpds on the init ref page.  I believe that’s what Jim was referring to.

Regression issues since v1.3 or known issues still not fixed?

When you load the aircraft for a long flight, and set the fuel needed, the passengers and cargo, if it is too much, you'll receive a notice that you are grossly overweight (see below).  So you have to adjust maybe the cargo or passengers until the warning notice goes away.  This is the data you, as the pilot, would send to your Operations Center.  When you go to the FMC, and the performance page, click on Request and your Operations Center will automatically enter the data for you as they have huge computers who can provide the correct data and you and your co-pilot do not have to figure it out.  You should do this with every flight as sometimes I have not and the APP will always land me short of the runway.

This is correct.  Thanks.

On my 4 year old system, this aircraft consumes as much FPS as my PMDG 777.

Yesterday during the New York Vatsim event I flew into DD KEWR in the PMDG777. Performance was smooth, even with DD Demo NYC X, Imaginesim KLGA and FSDT KJFK. I decided to fly out in the CS757. On the ground in KWER was like a stutter fest. It was not smooth at all when in the VC.  Switched back to the 777 and it was smooth again. I’m at the point we’re I'm just going to uninstall the plane.

Performance is awful for me. Any large/complex airport is a stutter fest. So bad that I gave up on it due to that and the other issues that keep going not fixed.
