Does it currently even matter? I mean DES isn't implemented yet... only OP DES.

Btw. to avoid tonns of merge commits like these: "Merge branch 'sounds' of github.com:Octal450/IDG-A32X into sounds", pull with --rebase

I'm referring to aerosoft a320/1 models. It's the same price as PMDG 747-8, so I'm surprised at how poor the fdm is. Obviously I don't mean it can get you into space, but it seems to have some very unrealistic performance on climb. So I'm wondering what's a good reference model for accurate a32x performance, of course, apart from this one.

The best refferences are rl videos... pilot eyes is great, they list as well the TOW and weather conditions. Then you can replay that flight in $flightsimulator to check, if the values of the sim are about the same as in the video.

The only other really good refference model would be an airbus certified sim.

oh... since this is FG i only know FG stuff and just had to ask how you figured the IDG craft was that messed up... i didn't see any indicator that you were talking about a non-IDG craft... i'll let this drop now ;)

[EDIT]

i've gone back and i see now that you do have "aerosoft" in there... i didn't see that before and if i did, my brain blanked it out as an unknown... anyway NVM :)

Sorry, Aerosoft Airbus is trash. It's a fancy 3D model and a somewhat there FMGS. And the FBW and FDM are just wrong.

Last I checked they were like $60? (Up from $40) PMDG is much more, usually upwards of $95 depending on the sim.

No, we'll keep the merge commits. That way we can see exactly what was merged and when. It has helped many many times now.

Thanks, needed a sanity check. It's not so different from PMDG prices, for instance base 737NG is $70. To be honest even the cockpit is a bit disappointing, and they really skimped on liveries.

That's true, but the NGX is also what, 6 years old now? I believe it was higher back then.

The only issue I found in the cockpit is the windows are too big - but they said that needed to be done for the HUD to work properly.

I didn't mean to completly remove merge commits, only thos when you've and upstream have both new commits... This isn't a real merge but rather just a pull.. IMO with --rebase it's a much cleaner history but in the end it's up to you if you want a clean history or not.

Hi.

In the last version of A32X, I've problems whit the thrust reverse whit the joystick. previously, I can use this always whitout problems. But now, when I use, the Uper ECAM indicate "MREV", in the right up side, but the thrust reverse isn't work.

If I use with the SUPR button, this work fine. ECAM indicate "MREV" and the thrust aplicate the reverse inmediately.

Is there something new in this or am I doing something wrong?

Regards :)

With debugging, knowing when something was merged can be very helpful.

I don't know what you mean by SUPR BUTTON.

Our controls are the F1 and F2. Each press of F2 does reverser out then 3 steps equally for a total of 4 presses. Opposite of F1.
We also support DEL, but this will set full reverse power and then completely off it again.

Note that while in reverse, your throttle does nothing, because that is an absolutely absurd way to control it.

Kind Regards,
Josh

Well, I'm sorry ... my keyboard is like this ----> SUPR = DEL

Anyway, I had managed to set the thrust reverse (DEL) on the stick of my Thrustmaster. which no longer executes anything. as I mentioned it.

I just wanted to find out if something has changed :)

No thing was changed in months. So maybe something weird for you.

Instead you can look in a320-main.xml for the nasal commands you need.

Feature Request: Keyboard mode for MCDU

Code: Select all
### General
----
<!-- [ ] = Unchecked, [x] = Checked. -->
I am submitting a: (select one)
* [ ] Bug report
* [x] Feature request

### Details
----
#### Current Behavior (if applicable)
<!-- Tell us what happens instead of the expected behavior. -->
MCDU entrys only possible by mouse

#### Requested Behavior  (feature requests)
<!-- Tell us what you want to happen -->
Enter a Keyboard mode where all key strokes go to the MCDU so you can use your keyboard to manipulate the MCDU. 
F1 through F6 for left LSK 1-6 
F7 through F12 for right LSK 1-6

This would make MCDU entries (especially if you can enter flight plans soon) much easier.

Not gonna happen any time soon. The entire MCDU has to be rewritten anyways. Maybe after that.

We either then have to monitor keyboard state, or something. Bindings for all keys would be bad.
