First of all i want to say hello to everyone. I am new in this community and already found helpfull hints and interesting Topics. I fly with the FSX for many years and prefere the Airbus for my flights. After Wilco and Aerosoft A319 i bought me the FSLabs A320 now and i must say that i am very impressed. Compared to all the busses i flew before the FSLabs 320 is absolutely amazing. A few "Bugs" i noticed will be surely fixed with upcoming Hotfixes and updates. The plane behaves really natural and authentic. i know what i am talking about. There are only some few Problems i still Need to solve ...... hopefully with your help. 1. Even after reading the Topics in the Forum i still have Problems to configure the throttle of the plane. All of my changes made in the Options and throttle menue of the fmc work ok, but not perfect. It is not possible for me to find the correct detents for CL and FLX. Pulling back the throttle from FLX to Climb after take off always results in a back and forth until i finally found the CL, coz all the detends are so Close to eachother even if i gave them a range of 10. I have a Thrustmaster Hotas X installed . I dont do reverse on stick. i use a button for the reverse. I have FSUIPC in a registered Version, but dont really know how to use it . 2. I still have to find out the correct Settings for the Brakes. Maybe somebody knows a good Setting. At the Moment i have it set as : 0.60, 0.60, ON, 1.00. But that seems to be not the perfect choice. For so many weeks now i try and try but nothing really works good. 3. The rudders are sooooo sensitive. i use them for stearing the plane on the ground. i have the sticky button activated (,) and in FSX i put the Settings of the rudder sensitivity on 0 (!), but the rudder is still overacting and ist very difficult to stear the plane on the ground, even if i never taxi faster than 10 knots. Maybe you can help me solving those Problems. Im sorry if i should have put my first post in a different Folder, but as i am new here i will still learn. By the way, a Special greeting and thank you to "Lefti", who helped me so professional with my Registration Problems. I hope to hear from you and cant wait to do my next flight in the great FSLabs 320. PETER
rjnicko posted a topic in Concorde-XHello All, I just bought Concorde X today and on first launch it seemed to work perfectly. However, after restarting my computer there seems to be a few issues. The first one is the INS no longer aligns. I know how to do this so this isn't the problem, but whenI engage the parking break, switch all the INS buttons to off on the engineers pannel and then press (CTRL + I) to realign nothing happens, nothing comes up in the top of the screen to say its aligning The parking break also doesn't engage by pressing CTRL > key either and I have to click it manually in the virtual cockpit. Auto throttle is also not working it instantly switches off as soon as pressing the switch and the throttles are jammed at 100% and won't move back down with my joy stick, the throttles work fine on the ground though. I haven't a clue whats wrong and I hope someone can help with this, as i've just spent almost £100 on this software and so far its a bit of a disappointment thanks Ryan
Gents, you will notice that the thrust controls (keyboard and joystick) now work a bit differently from what you're used to in FSX. The way we coded them should make a bit more sense for an Airbus, as we tried to follow the 'gates' methodology as closely as possible. Here's the logic behind them: 1) Joystick: Use the MCDU Menu -> Options page to reach the Thrust Lever Controls page In this page, you can tell the A320 sim: 1) whether your thrust controller has a single lever or two levers 2) whether you will use the stick for controlling reverse thrust or not (i.e. your stick does not go into the reverse range) 3) If you want visual cues ON to tell you if you're in a gate or not with selection "Set Gate Zones" you move to the next page, "Gate Settings" where you can set the joystick range for each gate. The example here is with a single-lever joystick, but the philosophy extends to dual controllers as well. In this page, you can select the lever you want ('BOTH' is the option if you have a single lever) and assign the proper range depending on lever position for each gate. The way I do it, I move the joystick to the full back position, click the THR POS button (LSK R1) once (scratch pad receives the current value), then move it slightly forward a bit and click LSK R1 again. The scratch pad should contain a pair of two values - for example, "-0.988/0.810". Then, press the appropriate LSK for FWD IDLE (LSK L4) to set the range for the FWD IDLE gate. I do the same the next three gates (CL, FLX MCT and TOGA) and that way, my stick is now set up to 'fall into' appropriate gates depending on the values coming to the sim from the joystick. The low/high values for each gate signify the positions within which the A320 Thrust Lever is locked inside a gate and will not 'move'. (i.e. it protects for your hardware's possible jitter). If you have done this correctly, all values will be green. If some ranges fall within each other, the respective values will become amber, signaling that you need to correct them. We pre-calculate default values for you too, so you can click on LSK R6 to get those, and see if you like them. In the example above, I have no reverse thrust position settings defined, as my joystick does not have reverser action - however, I could, if I wanted to, set my REV MAX and REV IDLE positions starting at the full closed joystick setting, but that would mean I'd need to physically mark on my joystick lever where the FWD IDLE position would be. Here's where the visual cues ON setting helps... Keyboard action is a bit easier to grasp: F2 and F3 buttons move the A320 levers back / fwd respectively (as normal). F1 and F4 are a bit different: They are used to move the thrust lever to the next gate, rather than to full back / full forward position. That means that if you are at FWD IDLE, you press F4 to move to CL, then F4 again to move to FLX MCT, and another F4 to move to TOGA respectively. Similarly with F1 - each key press moves the thrust lever back one gate (sound "click" position helps to identify this action). We hope this makes your simming experience a bit more realistic when it comes to thrust controls! Let us know what you think!
