Flight Sim Labs releases Update for A-320X

Here's what the Flight Sim Labs team would like you to know is included in this update:

AOC Service

They noticed that on a few setups, the AOCService process would sometimes take up a lot of CPU processing power, resulting in stutters and performance drops. This is now improved - you should not see any significant AOCService CPU processing time any longer throughout the flight.

Fuel

Changes were made to prevent third-party applications from sensing refuelling during the flight.

FMGC

Logic fix for HDG on rollout and missing runway bumps
Logic fix for Lateral T/D detection
Logic fix for DEP RWY leg header naming structure
Logic fix for shallow descent vertical path
Fix for V1 / VR / V2 rounding errors (126 would sometimes show as 125 on PFD)
Mach CRZ fuel predictions tuning
Corrected interpretation of tailored data in Navigraph NAV Database sources
Accurate handling of Circle-To-Land procedures now available through the NAV Database (this was originally going to be an SP1 item but they were able to include it in this release. Try some arrivals in LFMN - they are superb!)

Engine Generators

Logic fix for GEN FAULT failure

FADEC

Engine Anti-Ice logic improvements
Logic fix for Bleed issues

Sounds

Flight Sim Labs added the ability to allow sounds to continue to play when P3D loses window focus, if the P3D "Mute On Lost Focus" option is unchecked, as this adds a lot to the immersion factor. We know a lot of you wanted this feature, so here it is!

Doors

Door disarming is now available through the PA push-button on the Audio Control Panel

Brakes

An additional MCDU OPTIONS page was added for BRAKES coefficients and factors. On top of this, the keyboard and joystick button brake handling logic was modified to allow the maximum toe brake deflection to be user-specified and to default to 28% of the full toe brake travel. This results in a much finer braking action when the keyboard "." brake (or joystick brake button) is used and they are very happy with the resulting smoothness that occurs in all surface conditions (the braking action is now dynamically controlled based on whether the runway surface is dry, wet, icy or snowy).

Virtual Cockpit

Auto Brake MAX key size is now fixed
APU START key now returns even if the user accidentally moves the mouse away from the button while it was pushed in (which resulted in APU AUTO SHUTDOWN situations).

External Model

The Runway turnoff lights position is adjusted to match real world specs

Miscellaneous fixes

Several optimizations in the code resulting in smoother FPS performance in most conditions
Memory leak fix for situations where the user would select an MCDU subsystem then return to the MCDU MENU page

NOTE:

Please make sure you backup any modified files you have made, like the A320ThrustLevers.ini or A320XGauges.ini files, which contain settings you might want to retain before you reinstall.


As always, Flight Sim Labs are very appreciative of your feedback and they are constantly working towards bringing more improvements to you in our later versions. They will be sharing their plans for their next updates sometime soon, but until then, you are cleared directly to our Flight Sim Labs Redownload area (http : // redownload.flightsimlabs.com) where you can download this new and very exciting update. Don't forget to also grab the latest FSLSpotlights v1.0.0.33 which bring compatibility with the latest P3D v3.4 HF3!
