I, too have issues getting the SO panel floods to come on.  The only way seems to be either L (all lights) or Shift-L (all interior lights).

Using the light switches on the lower left hand area of the SO panel doesn't seem to work for me.

Wheel Well Fire Detection - Unable to silence bell with the Bell Cutout button on the Fire Detection Loop Test module.

Differential Pressure - Zero differential pressure not achieved after Cabin Pressure Control Test in which both valves are held close and the manual switches are latched and then unlatched during test.

When testing the DME - Supposed to be four dashes and then four zeroes but only four zeroes

When turning both FDs on and engaging AFCS to command and setting HDG and ALT on, rotation of the HDG should show on the FD (Pilot and Co) as well as yoke movement which it does not even though B3 and C3 hydraulic pumps are engaged.

Really nice to see Instrument Comparator and AFCS Warning Mode Tests implemented -- great job Captain!

This plane is my most favorite of all Captain Sim aircraft and I am flying it every day using a real FCOM and loving it.  Find me in evening As Arrow1011 KATL to KLAX.

When testing Engine Vibration, at the 2 mark the lights should illuminate and at the 4 mark the test is evaluated.  This does not happen for the 2 mark and as soon as the switch is thrown, the light on the CWP illuminate immediately.

Engine Vibration Test.  Should the Engine Vibration indicator on the CAWS illuminate during test?

ATM Overspeed test with both AC Hydraulic Pumps enabled and the ATM switches turned to OVerspeed Test - Nothing happens but I expected the RMP indications to begin moving into the red and a warning from the ACWS up front.

Should not the duct temperature on the L-1011 match the ambient air temperature outside?  I notice that the Cabin altimeter next to the zone temp selector defaults to 30 to 40 degreed F when all other indicators of indirect temperature like oil temp all show outside ambient temp.

The emergency light does not turn on when the emergency light switch is turned on.  May not be modeled.

OAT/SAT is always reading the exact same temperature on the ground.  I use Active Sky Next and the present temp is 14 but the SAT reads 25 even with a correction factor for ram rise of 1.  Something is wrong with this gauge making EPR  always calculate for 1.51.  This is confirmed by the V-One gauge that is always computing the same EPR for a given incorrect temperature reading from the aircraft.

MAX IND RESET on the forward panel does not reset the needles.  Something is wrong with them.

HI, I can't help but feel that the tristar is too hard to fly on approach manually.

I feel like the engines need a high n1 percentage just to stay on a shallow decent rate.

I also feel as a longstanding keyboard flyer, when on approach just tapping the down key just once, very quickly, very lightly, which translates into nose up, just to get my point across.
Is that it instead of lifting me up one degree, it actually jolts me down by lifting the spoiler up by dlc like 9 degrees or something.

Now why is that, I just got into the l1011 now thanks to a new powerful computer, and when flying manually it, for some reason needs high HIGH n1% and it either goes to fast or goes to slow, and that the dlc seems to actually work against me instead of aiding me???

It's very hard to find a middle ground for speed MANUALLY that is.  Its either sinking or climbing VSI that is also.

So I would love to really fully enjoy this beauty to its full potential. Don't get me wrong I definitely feel as though this bird is replicated perfectly IMO, but I feel as though it can only be enjoyed by automation or by joystick.

Thank You soooo much!!!!!! Smiley Smiley Cheesy Cheesy

The flaps in the L-1011 create a lot of drag, so more thrust IS required. I cannot say if it is excessive or not, but I feel it performs well.

I can only suggest that you might be better off with a joystick (even a cheapish one like the Logitech Extreme 3D Pro). I started flying FS on a C64 back in '84, and by the time I got my Amiga 1000 (in '87/'88), I had a joystick to use for flying the aircraft in FS. I couldn't fly without one now, although I do use the keyboard shortcuts where needed.

That said, I find the L-1011 a bit sluggish when flying it manually, but I didn't notice it fighting any of my inputs with the joystick. It maintains a pretty steady descent once I found the correct trim, which didn't take very long. But I WAS using the joystick because I cannot fly at all using the keyboard. For me, flying using the keyboard only = disaster!  Undecided

Tried to post this as a new topic but for some reason I don't have access to the post topic area. Anyway, anyone having an issue with no apu sounds, clicks sounds or other sounds in the L-1011? I have re-installed several times with no success. Any help would be deeply appreciated.

You cannot start a new Topic (thread) until you have reached 10 posts. It's the method Captain Sim have decided to use to prevent spamming in the forum.

FSX or FSX-SE? A "fix" will depend on which of those you installed it into. Undecided

But a couple of things to try regardless of that, is to:

1) Install it using the "Run as administrator" option (Vista, Win7, Win8/8.1). Right click on the installer and select it from the list
2) Turn your Anti Virus off, or disable the shields when installing

OMGosh I just noticed that you replied, omgosh I'm so late I'm sorry, and yes I believe I'm a little over exaggerating things as I just completed my first 2 flights the other day and they were so AWESOME!!!!!

I did a trip with ATL-KMIA AND LAX-PHNL, they were so much fun, and the dlc on approach really does like to keep you at your current pitch IF you have sufficient speed lol.

But yes Thank You so much for replying to me Markoz and sorry that I was late after wanting someone to reply so bad!!!
