WELCOME BRIEFING (MUST READ)
Aug 7th, 2018 at 2:28pm
 
Captains,
There's always room for improvement so feel free to report any issues but:

0. Please make sure you have read the Manual. 790+ 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 of BUG TRACKING forum.

3. One issue ONE post, please.

4. Please provide a reference to CS Manual page #.
Our Manual is based on the original Boeing's FCOM. For obvious reasons we cannot do all operators optional equipment variants.
Moreover, this is just a consumer PC simulation, so please do not expect all features of real mutly-million airplane simulated.
Anyways, it's not a bug if it's not in OUR Manual.

In some cases we can consider a reference to Boeing and/or operator's original 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 # and/or additional Boeings' data are ABSOLUTELY required for all flight/performance related comments.
Software coding is all about math. No numbers = no coding PERIOD

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):
- SAVE the scenario - press ; 
- ZIP all 3 files of the saved scenario: 
xxxxx.fxml
xxxxx.cs.config
xxxxx.wx
(located in %USERPROFILE%\Documents\Prepar3D v4 Files\  folder)
- Attach the ZIP archive to your post.

7. Please provide FULL version of your sim (e.g. P3D 4.4.16.27077) and the product (e.g. 1.402) in the first line of your report.

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

CS team members make marks and comments right in your post as follows:

- The red AIIR# mark in your post means: 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. Which is not a guaranee the issue will be addressed.

CS team members comments are in magenta.

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

Thank you all for your input!
