Captains,
There's always room for improvement so feel free to report any issues but:

0. Please make sure you have read the Manual. 740+ handmade pages describing thousands of hard-coded features. Great reading.

1. Please report an issue if you are 100% sure it is a bug. Not sure? Please use General Discussion

2. Please use proper threads. E.g. do not post MCP issues in the FMC thread.

3. One issue ONE post, please.

4. Please provide a reference to the Manual page #.
CS Manual is based on the original Boeing's FCOM. For obvious reasons we cannot do all operators optional equipment variants.
It's not a bug if it's not in the Manual.

In some cases we can consider a reference to an operator's official Manual or CBT.
But any info from a third party software or from personal experience IS NOT a reference material. 

Also the Manual reference page # is absolutely required for all flight related and performance comments as we cannot work with the "slower-faster" kind of data. Official Boeings' numbers are absolutely required.

5. Please provide screenshots and/or screen capture videos for each issue.
Easy to use free services:
- For the screenshots: https://onpaste.com/
- For the videos:  https://screencast-o-matic.com/
Also you can attach an image to your forum post.

6. For all flight related floating issues (FMC, MCP, VNAL/LNAV etc) please SAVE the flight right on the issue, zip all 3 files of the flight (.fxml  .wx  .config) located ....\Users\you\Documents\Prepar3D v4 Files\ , upload the zip to any free hosting service (e.g. Google disc) and include the URL into your report.

COMPLETE AND CORRECT REPORTS WILL BE FORWARDED TO THE DEVELOPMENT TEAM.

CS developers will make marks and comments right in your post as follows:

- The red AIIR# mark in your post means: sounds like a bug but Additional Information Is Required indicating the numbers as per the list above.

- The blue SW means: Should work. So we need more users to confirm the issue.

- Highlight means the items is on the list.

Developers comments are in magenta.

Please DO NOT use any text color/effect other than plain black.

Thank you all for your input!

When I first open the sim, everything is working fine, but then about 5-10 minutes later, the knobs controlling the ADF, ILS, and VOR/DME frequencies and also the TFR button which switches the comm frequencies all stop working. In some cases like the ILS, the knob for the course works but the frequency knob does not. I restarted the flight and the same issue kept occurring.

I have a video of the issue and a .zip file of the saved flight but I can't share a link until I have posted 10 "normal" posts, is there any way around this?

Lowered to 3 posts.

Thanks for all the hard work!

UPDATE: I have only had this issue when setting up for a transatlantic flight KJFK-EHAM. When it occured I restarted the sim twice, it still occured. Also, this was my first and only flight with this aircraft on Vatsim. The other flights which this issue did not occur in both were during the day and on the east coast.

This happened to me also, resetting Chaseplane seemed to correct it, so maybe a conflict between the two.

Unfortunately, I don't use chaseplane. This also kept occuring to me even after restarting the sim and computer multiple times.

The assumed temperatures seem odd and don't match up with those given by TOPCAT. CS757 only allowed a max of 40c when topcat said 45 for a 1.43EPR. If I matched the EPR the 757 was saying a temp of about 26.

Topcat is probably good, but we need some data from Boeing pls Wink

TCAS Alerts - I keep keeping TCAS alerts for about 1 minute from  the TA system, just a constant 'traffic traffic'. No AI traffic used and sliders set to ZERO in the sim. Once in cruise, no further issues.

AutoThrottle - Autothrottle seems to be fighting against hardware position, i.e. when hardware throttles are full forward and left there after takeoff, with the auto throttle in, the throttles keep jumping to full throttle and back to IDLE.

Just pull the throttle on your controller back when in AT mode.  In AT mode you do not need to manage the throttle.

I appreciate that but this shouldn't be happening for the price.

With all due respect we do not see any connection between the price and the hardware control position.

I have no problem with athother products with my hardware position the Auto Throttle system just works straight from the box. The issue was it was jumping from IDLE to full during descent, causing the 'MORE DRAG' message and overspeed. A simple 'pull it back to IDLE' seems like the easy way out of the problem?

As another update to this issue, today I continued to set up for the flight and push back when my radio panel became useless. During pushback everything began working normally again. I was only effected by the issue from about 10-15 minutes into the preflight to pushback.

Still need AIIR#6

Transponder - when set to TA/RA usually updates simconnect with this variable so that online flying (i.e. vatsim/vpilot) automatically turns to Mode C.

I think your other aircraft I have from you have this hooked in correctly, at the moment it's not working on the 757.

Thanks!

AIIR#4 or to suggestions

As you can see from the pic we are burning 6.4t at FL410 with zero wind.  I'd guess around 50% too much.

AIIR#4 The FF calculation is on the list. But where did you get the 50% pls?

-Dean.

ps. I have attempted to show you this but for some absurd reason I need to have made 10 posts before i'm allowed to post a link??  Follow this if you can/want

I've had the same issue, 3.9T per engine per hour!!

AIIR#4 The FF calculation is on the list

This may be a display issue with LB/KG I have my sim set in KG see below.

I've got a problem. I'm coming into land about 1000ft from the runway i disconnect my autopilot the warnings go off (because autopilot disconnect) but my controls on my joystick seem to be very touchy and sensitive it's making it hard for me to land i never have a problem with any other aircraft.

Anyone to confirm this issue please?

Flaps Indicator Skip

The little flaps indicator when going through flaps quickly skips from Up - 1 then rest is smooth animation. Same thing when going from 1-up. This only seems to happen when quickly going through your flap settings. It only seems to do this between 1 and up.

yes say for instance you use flap 15 for take off. you set flap 15, goes from 0 skips 1 very quicky from flaps 5 it's very smooth and accurate

It is accurate. The aircraft seems to be sensitive after disconnecting the AP.
Thanks, but "sensitive" sounds a bit subjective. Aircraft controls supposed to be sensitive Smiley Can we get some numbers please?

Also the alarm won't cut off when pressing the WARNING button to silence it. Clicking cancel on the EICAS will not make the AP disconnect red flag go away on the status annunciations next to the EICAS.

This from a current B752 line pilot (PPrune)

=================================

B757-200 no winglets:

For 100,000kg TOW (typical 4hr sector):

4,800kg first hour
3,100kg per hour thereafter

For a B757-300 with 110,000kg TOW:

+400kg on above hourly rates.

==============================

Not sure on those numbers from Pprune, but when I compare the numbers in the CS757 to the Boeing FCOM I end up with about 13-14% too much.

That's exactly why we accept references to official PRINTED data only.

Posted about it and got it confirmed by the developers already

Sorry but I have to disagree.

Firstly, why do you instantly dismiss the comments of a bonafide 752 pilot?  What possible reason would he have for posting misleading information on a board populated by professional pilots?

We do no dismiss but ask for a proof and/or additional information.
I'm a professional jet pilot myself, but the 757 is too complex simulation coding to make changes based solely on someone's personal experience. Errare humanum est. Please read #4.


I flew GCTS - EGKK yesterday.  PFPX gave me a little under 16t fuel required.  I loaded 24t.  I was using AS for wx and I did encounter some pretty strong winds on descent.  At shutdown I had 2.1t remaining.  I calculate that around 37%.

A screenshot at FL370.  Note the FF.
dmcity.com/uploads/8t.jpg

As for the FF in particular, it's on the list several days already.

Just to add to this, I did the same flight and route.

PFPX spat out a 4:02 flight time with an average headwind of 019KT - meaning I needed 16.5 tonne of fuel. Loaded 16.7. By the time I was 300NM from TFS, my estimated fuel was going to be 0.0. I refueled mid-flight.

I reckon I was 3.5 tonne short of what I needed.

No Electrical power after 10 or 15 min, approx.
It doesn't matter if I'm using APU or External Power, after 10 or 15 min on the ground, with Pos, Logo, Wing Lts on, Setting FMC, aligning IRS realistically (about 10 min), when it's time for pushback, there will be no ATC Com and Obviously, the engine won't start. The fact is that the full cockpit will be showing that there is power. After noticing this issue, I manually edited the Default GPS as a 2D window and did the whole procedure again and then, BINGO ! After 15 min. the GPS screen was black so there is probably a bug with the plane power module and P3DV4.1 internal electrical power code.

This is pretty bad for a US$ 75.00 plane and even more, with a bug from the old CS planes (since I've been collecting them for FS9 and FSX for years). Until a solution comes up, we better HURRY to set the whole flight deck and start the engines before you get in a "fancy useless oficce full of lights".

Please make sure APU is running and STBY POWER is AUTO.

Of course I made sure it is properly configured...... This is not "new" to me...Furthermore, I checked all the possibilities and the same issue happens no matter what.

Just tested..... again....
It is a BUG. It's very simple. Load the aircraft from Cold and Dark, turn APU on and Stand By Power to Auto, Set whatever you have to, use simulation rate x16 and after a few minutes, try to start the plane or use ATC comm....

I actually edited my aircraft.cfg and added the line "electric_always_available=1". Not the best solution but it works anyway.
