Help on IDG A33x  

Postby Marsdolphin » Thu Feb 06, 2020 1:59 pm

IDG-A33X problem
When I start FlightGear up with the latest revision of IDG-A33x, my PFD crashes.
I don't know why this happened but I need help to fix it.
This is what it looks like after clicking: Ready for takeoff

You need to align ADIRS. Use the MCDU to do that.

But it should do it automatically using "ready fo takeoff"...

Where did you download it from?

From Octal450's Github
It was strange. A very strange problem. Here is the story:
I started flightgear half a year ago in 2018.3.2. Back then everything was perfect, until one day in November 2019. Now at startup there is a notification of which airport you are in, and there are red loop-lke stuff extending out of the active runway.
And then all my aircraft crashed. They would sink into the ground immediately at startup.
So I switched to 2019.1.1, and after a few weeks the loops disappeared with all aircraft functioning good. But the IDGs were not. There was his problem with the PFD. I managed to solve it in the A320, by pressing ALIGN IRS INSTANTLY, but my A330 still had the problem.

I saw on another post the solution was go the mCDU, press FMGC, INIT and then ALIGN IRS. But my MCDU is dead after I click FMGC. It is not clickable.

I don't really know if there is any, but both mCDUs were not working and I see other people's working fine. Everything else is working.

Hi,
Downloaded the latest version and found out there is a switch saying...
ALIGN IRS IMMEDIATELY
...
Regards,
Mars.
