Human-readable MCDU config file

Version B61.3.7 introduced a nice little change: -MCDU GUI: config now with a readable config file, may need to reconfigure it at first run. Fixed potential openGL issue with it. I finally had a chance to test it today as I always had a very hard time precisely positioning the MCDU window on the cap...

Re: Landing gear lever panel red arrow

On my Skalarki setup the red arrow does indeed illuminate at low altitude if the landing gear is not extended.

Re: Descent profile and manual constraints

As pointed out in the previous message the problem is compounded by the fact that the FMGC doesn't seem to import any constraint (altitude or speed) associated with the initial waypoint in a STAR (despite the fact that such constraint, if it exists, is properly included in the Navigraph data).

Re: Imported flight plan from Simbrief sometimes incorrect.

Out of curiosity, do you know if it matters if the flight plan is imported before or after the IRS are fully aligned?

Re: TOPCAT - TOGA Thrust

That is the expected behavior. When you click Compute (after updating the weather first) you will get the takeoff performance numbers for both TOGA and FLEX. TOGA is the first line, with the current OAT. FLEX options are listed below that for a few FLEX temperatures. If you click Results you will se...

Re: Decelerate point - Incorrect location

The blue arrow is a "level off" indication based on the selected altitude (FL200) which you can see at the bottom of the altitude tape. I believe that part is all normal. It's the location of the magenta (D) symbol that is incorrect, being way too early in the descent.

Decelerate point - Incorrect location

I have observed on some flights that the magenta (D) Decelerate Point is displayed much too early in the descent. See the example below where it is a little more than 10 NM ahead of the aircraft despite being still above FL280 and roughly 120 NM from the runway. This is with version B60.0.6 https://...

Re: [Suggestion] Cabin temperature

I hope it's okay for me to bring back this topic.

Default behavior would be unchanged (starts at 24C) but with the option ON the 3 zones would ...

Terrain Display - Minimum Elevation

I have noticed in several locations that when using the terrain display on the ND the minimum elevation is quite often "-13" (minus 13), which I believe would indicate -1,300 ft. Here is an example: https://www.flightpathsimulation.club/wp-content/uploads/jeehell-issues/Terrain%20-%20Min%2...

Re: A320 FMGS B60

I can confirm the behavior described by Bernd. I have seen this behavior as well. Basically the flight path is not displaying part of the SID past a certain fix. It happened for example on the VEBI1Y SID out of runway 28 at LSZH (no path after ZH544, until you fly past that waypoint). And to avoid ...

Thanks for checking. It looks like it might have been a one time fluke. Everything seems back to normal now (I think I did press the Emergency Gen Test as part of my debugging and that might have fixed it).

I'm using a Skalarki overhead panel.

The overhead is connected to the main PC running the sim and the FMGS server.

ETP display on ND

Another thing I observed after installing B60.0.6 is that the ETP point on the ND is sometimes incorrectly displayed:
- The text "(ETP)" is displayed at the correct location along the flight route, but
- The green ETP circle appears around the waypoint preceding the correct ETP location

LDG FLAP 3 push button

I just updated to B60.0.6 today and noticed that if you press (turn ON) the LDG FLAP 3 push button on the overhead the red FAULT light on the RAT & EMER GEN comes on.
Could someone confirm this?
