    Airbus A320 FMGS B45

    Hello,

    B45 is out. Numbering starts at 45.3 because of internal decisions to postpone the release...
    This is a rather big update. Next major update will include rework of the LNAV/VNAV, so it will again take some time before you see any B46 version.

    Download:
    http://www.jeehell.org/A320FMGS_B45.3.exe
    or use the autoupdate feature.

    Changelog:
    -Added Batteries test logic (current spike decreasing over a few seconds after BAT is ON)
    -Added fully controlled Intercom system. The system requires all audio I/O to be linked to one single computer, where the new application is running (can be done with cheap USB sound cards). This requires compatible hardware (I think Marcin/Skalarki at first will soon or already has the compatible hardware, I will add SIOC,FDS and joysticks soon)
    -G/S now has the correct half diamond shown when deviation is at maximum deviation on the scale.
    -Corrected many FMA modes interactions (G/S stays engaged once it is active, NPA approaches mode FINAL/APP NAV, and a few others)
    -Corrected cases where in APPR phase, speed was not maintained (engines stayed at IDLE)
    -Corrected BRAKES HOT ECAM warning not detecting the correct BRK FAN status
    -Corrected AUTOLAND flare mode
    -Corrected AUTOLAND warning light flashing in voluntarily manual flight
    -Corrected GPWS G/S warning sound
    -Tried to correcte Trim wheel not resetting to 0 after landing
    -Corrected many ND routes drawing errors.
    -Corrected occurrences of SID constraints not being followed in managed modes.
    -AP2 altitude reference changed to FO source (either FO or STBY ADR)
    -Corrected SD page blank when exiting single ECAM mode while previously on STS page.
    -RNP accuracy entry in MCDU PROG page
    -EO managed speed is now green dot speed.
    -PFD ILS localizer scale now has the correct half diamond shown when localizer deviation is at maximum deviation on the scale.
    -Corrected take off in EO conditions (SRS target speed is now V2 or speed at EO)
    -Added EIS self test sequence
    -Added EIS electrical source switching effect (diagonal line)
    -Added sounds for electrical relay, avionics vent and Aircond
    -Added ALTI DISCREPANCY and BARO REF DISCREPANCY warnings


    Regards,
    JL

    Thanks Jean-Luc! That's an incredible update. I just tried some of the new features on my PC and will perform the update in the simulator later this week.
    Thanks for your hard work!

    Re: A320 FMGS B45

    Hi
    After a short test, there is a very high annoying sound, and no navdata for me. Why?
    Regards

    Re: A320 FMGS B45

    Leonidas : The A320 has a really noisy cockpit... Most noise comes from the avionics fan and air conditioning ventilation.
    Look in the sound podule in the options, at the end you can reduce the volume of these new sounds to suit your confort level.
    navdata needs to be rebuilt. Also, make sure you pointed to the correct FSX/P3D folder in the C:\A320FMGS\navdata\fsscenery.cfg file on the server computer.


    Filippo: the intercom application is just like the real aircraft intercom system.
    You have for each seats different microphones and speakers/headphones possibilities. Each of these mikes/phones are linked together using the ACPs panels, so for instance the pilots can talk to each other in flight using the headsets (because of the ambient noise...), or one pilot can talk to the ground crew while the other talks to the ATC etc...
    The full ACP panels logic is there, including volume control (though you still need to adjust the volume in windows to adapt to the max sound levels, be careful with you ears...). The VOR/ADF/ILS/MKR morse code IDs are generated in real time as well (if you use that, you should mute the MKR sounds in the older Sound Application).

    Hi JL thanks for this great update.
    I'm flying now and i've only one problem : my CockpitSonic Radio doesn't display any numbers. it is turned on, i can change vhf channels , hf channels and i can switch off/on the radio. if i move the number selector and set it with the center button the frequency changes! But the there aren't any numbers ... can you verify ?

    Re: A320 FMGS B45

    As always Jean Luc has done it again...................many thanks.
    I will put this on the sim as soon as I get some bugs worked out on atc. I have some of the features already working on the audio panel via SIOC, but the new lot, sounds a great improvement.

    Cheers and merci...........Brian W.
