  1. Dont forget that one obnoxious asshat that shoves their McDonnalds laden flabby butt into your face as they side step down the isle to the back of the plane while looking for the two seats they require with the "special seat belt extension" only to find they are actually sitting next to you for the next 8 hours..... This might have brought up some bad memories....
  2. Looking forward to meeting you all there
  3. The speed card is selected by the weight you enter in the FMC.
  4. Hi, Durning the installation at the end it should ask you to point the installation to your FSx folder, can you confirm you are setting it to (C:/program files/Steam/Steamapps/Common/ Fsx {or your relavant directory}) and selecting the Fsx.exe icon in that folder? Thanks
  5. Hi, you are correct about the bugs reference's - 1st bug = V1 - 2nd bug = Vr - 3rd bug = Flap Retraction - 4th bug = Slat Retraction / clean speed MCP Speed should be set to V2 +10 for safe climbout. In order to check the bugs are correct ensure you have loaded and checked the fuel and payload of the aircraft vs the load manager (if on a second flight for example, click addons -> Maddog -> reload from CFG) I can attest the speeds do match to the takeoff and landing data cards. Can you confirm which sim you are using? Thanks
  6. I will look into this tomorrow, see if I can find anything, only thing I can think of right now is to make sure its a .WAV file
  7. I have not seen this issue, Im currently on 1.4 as well, can you tell me which sim you are using (FSx, P3D V1, 2, 3, 4x)..... I would recommend you un-install, reboot then re-install.
  8. Hi there, You can create custom assignments in the load manager. You can find this under the Setup tab and Events. Click add and then define what actions you want.
  9. Hi, I can confirm that the lights do work correctly with V1.0.4. I would check you setting in the sim, see if anything has been changed or a re-install of the aircraft.
  10. Have you selected the PA button on the radio panel?
  11. Adding to MauB's reply, are you also ensuring the routes you are using are the same including alternates? Also check you are entering the same fuel figures on taxi, reserves, extra etc... I use PFPX and also cant say I have noticed a difference beyond 200kgs
  12. both you and Signmanbob are correct, to put in a Flex Temp for departure, you need you first turn off the ART and then press the TO FLX on the TRP, afterwhich when you rotate the the temp knob you will find the vaule on the FMA (TARP) display. You will also need the Flight Directors on to see this in the FMA.
  13. Hi, Is this only happening at certain airfields (i.e EU airports) or is it everywhere?
  14. Ahsmatt7, check the video below. But for a quick and dirty explanation, we need a defined course for the LOC section of the ILS approach. An ILS works in two separate parts. Localiser (LOC - the course to the runway) which gives us lateral guidance towards the runway (now bear in mind we may also have an offset LOC due to terrain but that's another discussion) and the Glide Path which gives us the vertical guidance. The reason a course matters on a precision approach is that it is there to get us to the centerline of the designated runway. If we are in CAT III conditions and are planning on landing on ILS 33L which has a magnetic course of 334 degrees, we wouldn't want to fly an inbound course of (as an example) 176 degrees (which we actually couldn't as ILS signals tend to dissipate quickly as you get further away from the centerline. Now in the MD80, the pilot needs to dial this inbound course manually in order to fly the ILS.
  15. For the guys who are looking for detailed info into the shared flightdeck (shared cockpit) features, I highly recommend you look at any and all posts by Dave, I have worked alongside him for 10 years in this area and will tell you he has the top level of knowledge in the functional area as he has worked alongside and brought about every developer who has released this feature. You can find our forums on avsim at https://www.avsim.com/forums/forum/195-shared-cockpits-multi-player-forum-for-fsx-fsx-se-p3d/ or or aerosoft at:http://forum.aerosoft.com/index.php?/clubs/2-shared-cockpit-flying-sponsored-by-online-virtual-pilots-association/
  16. I'm currently in a flight with the Citation X from Van Nuys (KVNY) to Honolulu (PHNL) I set the initial climb to 43,000 in the VNAV with no issues, further down the route I performed a step-climb with the V-Speed (+700fpm) to 45,000 again no issues, both times the aircraft has levelled off at the assigned altitudes. The only thing I noticed being off was the standby altimeter which I program to the next alternate field's pressure setting.
  17. As Dave mentioned in a earlier reply, I am regularly on our voice server and will happliy offer any asistance I can, in terms of the issue you mentioned: 'HDG' and 'ALT' buttons illuminated and the aircraft is in straight and level flight and will follow the heading bug. To start an ascent, I select the desired altitude with the 'ALT SEL' knob, then I turn off the 'ALT' button and increase the throttles to climb. Using the 'NOSE UP' trim wheel I set the desired vertical speed. The aircraft starts to climb but always levels off just short of the desired altitude (sometimes by as much as 500ft) and the 'ALT' button does not illuminate! At the current time, the only thing's I can think of is the known issue with the VATSIM Wx, can you tell me if you are using any version of Active Sky or are you just using the VATSIM upload through a program such as FSinn? Other than that the other thing could be a issue with weight and the opt crz altitude I will be on the server most of the day today and will think of anything else that could cause this issue.
