    717 caused FSX to ctd

    Possible MCDU input/font bug

    Font bug still exists in 1.0.9.27 and I have AIRAC cycle 1805. Uninstalling the 717 and re-installing has not helped me.

    MCDU plus AP

    Enroute to the AAMMO intersection when I selected the runway for landing in KDTW and the autopilot on NAV mode instantaneously made a 45 degree bank turn to the left sending the plane off course, but NAV mode was still engaged. The MCDU still showed direct AAMMO, but I had to go to select DIR INTC and input a direct course to AAMMO and the plane eventually got back on course. The plane was still level at 15,000 ft. This is nothing new, but I wonder when the 717 does this, why always a hard immediate bank to the left? Since something in the programming of the 717 is still a bit off, why not a wrong turn to the right? P.S. The MCDU still has a font problem when inputting the flightplan, so I am attaching a screenshot.

    Rough Turns

    I may be wrong but when I turn on NAV mode, the autopilot "swings" the yoke left or right way too fast. Never seen a yoke move that fast before. Version 1.0.9.27

    Remote CDU out for teh 717

    The Remote CDU is now available for the 717. Works great. Already had it for the NXG and the Maddog. With SPAD Next tied in this aircraft rocks!

    Hi turbofandude... You haven't read my PM to schedule the TeamViewer meeting... I am still unable to use this aircraft. Just FYI, I have FSX:SE installed in the same PC and drive and the FSX:SE version works flawlessly. It is just the P3Dv4.2 version that does not work. If TeamViewer is not possible, please provide clear instructions to debug... Please help!

    717 caused FSX to ctd

    The ctd occurred when I was maybe 1,000' agl after takeoff. 2 Event logs were created within the same time-frame of when the ctd happened. Also, remember that something happened that I don't think that I have ever seen before: When FSX ctd because of the error that the 717 caused, vPilot shutdown simultaneously without me touching it. The minidump and screenshot of the ctd are both attached, along with both Event logs that I have pasted in this report.

    Poor VC Performance V1.0.9.27

    HI, After the most recent update I am also getting really poor performance. Sitting on the ground at Eglin AFB default scenery in P3DV4.2 with fair weather at noon I am getting 10-14 FPS in the VC, and it is really stuttering and lagging. In locked spot view I am getting good frames (24-31 locked at 31). Disabling True Glass has no effect and I only have the Captain's displays showing. I am using what I call "Airliner settings", 4xMSAA, 8x Anisotropic, medium autogen etc My system specs are as follows PC: Intel i7-2700k O/C 4.5GHz, ASRock Z77 Performance, 16GB DDR3 1333-1866 MHz, Asus Strix GEForce GTX980, Windows 7 64 bit, FSX(SE), P3D V3.4, P3D V4.2 Cheers,

  14. This is starting to become a little absurd. This aircraft is a very unique addon and I enjoy flying it. But every time I change views in the 717, my simulator crashes. I put this bird back in the hanger about 3 months ago. When I heard of this new update I got very excited and have decided to try the airplane out again. Low and behold, my first flight back in the 717. I take off out of Salt Lake City, take a look outside at my default scenery... and my simulator crashes. I am honestly starting to lose hope for this addon.

    No improvement to performance with 1.0.9.27

    Hey guys, I recently downloaded the last version and hoped the frame rates would improve but it doesn't seem to have any effect in my sim. As you know, like most others, my PMDG and Carenado aircraft run with an average of about 23-29fps which for the most parrt is really good for my system. But I as soon as I open and start with the 717, even if I have no weather, I can peak at about 15 fps. If I use default weather (Grey and rainy) it goes down to 7fps. With Trueglass enabled it has bottomed out to 1fps. There is alos a massive consumption of memory from the ius aircraft too. Again, not much from the other aircraft just this one. Hope you guys can help me knock this one out, Thanks. Just to recap: Clear day, no active sky, Trueglass disabled =15fps / TG enabled = 7fps clear day, active sky, Trueglass disabled =10-12fps / TG enabled = 3-7fps Rainy day, No ASP3D, TG enabled = 2-7fps / with ASP3D = as low as 1fps

    Latest beta build looping installation

    No anti-virus message popped up but after uninstalling and reinstalling the aircraft with the anti-virus disabled installation was completed successfully. Thanks for the help!

    Problem with new release

    Disregard, searching in the forum I found that the problem was caused by Nvidia inspector as I had Antialising -Transparency Supersamling set to a Sparse Grid Supersampling option, I changed it to Supersampling only and it works. Thanks anyway. Pack

    Problem with new release

    Hi, Thanks for your answer. I checked all that and still no joy, I uninstalled the plane, deleted the 717 folder in Simobjects and reinstalled and no success. It happens only with P3D V4, however I checked the P3d V3 version and everything works fine in the tablet as it should be. Any help is appreciated. Pack

    Great plane now.

    I love this plane, i have wanted a 717 for FSX/p3d for many years after having Qantaslink 717's flying overhead daily. I did have a few issues at first due to my hardware not really being upto spec (was running a 2gb gtx680) so that was affecting my experience. But since upgrading to a 1070 the plane is just so smooth and i have no performance issues what so ever anymore. It is really a great plane to fly. Thanks for your hard work.

    WX radar auto mode

    Yes, you are right. Just read on FCOM how to use the weather radar, and the tilt has to be set manually! Thanks (your representation of a/c is pretty accurate!!) Paolo
  25. Hi, There is a never ending loop when installing the latest beta build. Reallight & Trueglass are being installed multiple times and I am requested to approve the dependencies installation over and over. The installation never ends... I had to shut down the add on manager process from the task manager. After shutting the process down I've managed to start the add on manager and see the latest beta build is installed. Hope this means the installation went through? How do I overcome this next time? Shom

    I'm pretty sure the auto functionality only affects gain, not the tilt.
