Stuck autothrottle/throttle levers

Hi CS,

I did try to post in the original "Stuck Autothrottle" topic but couldn't see any reply button.

I too have been having this problem with the CS777 200ER GE90B.  I am on version 1.1 which I bought it June 2019.  I've checked to see if there are any updates or hotfixes but can't see any - Is that correct that there has been no fixes or service packs etc to add to version 1.1?

In my case, with the AP engaged and auto armed and AT engaged along with VNAV AND LNAV engaed, the speed just keeps increasing.  Disconnecting the A/T and even turning off the AP makes no difference.  Also the throttles remain stuck, that is to say they do not move in the VC when I move my Saitek throttles.

There is no problem during the initial takeoff and climb but this problem does occur during the climb to cruise and also in the cruise.

Rory

Sorry, meant with the autothrottle armed and the AT engaged.

Ok, another aborted flight due to this problem.  This is something that has been known to CS since April 2019.  I have no other issues with this aircraft but this problem renders the plane unflyable. 

I watched a youtube video of someone else with a similar problem ( the originator of the first post, stuck autothrottle). But unlike his problem, mine does this with the AT armed. It just starts to speed up then I get the overspeed warning and by that time my throttles have locked and trying Marks fix doesn't work for me.

Looks like I now have to spend another 108 UK pounds to buy that other 777, but at least in doesn't seem to suffer from the CS problem.

Thanks,

Rory

Same issue here. They simply don't care. No response says it all. I bet They have moved on to MS2020. I would not expect any updates or further development on any P3D products. I uninstalled it. They got my money. But no more.

CS have never been outspoken. They speak when required. This bug has personally never affected me although I only use SPD hold during approach. It's certainly never done it to me on VNAV.

I know you posted this before the 737 came out but I want to comment on the MSFS part.
I don't expect to see any aircraft developer switch to MSFS because its simply not feasible. Its impossible to port P3D aircraft to MSFS because Microsoft won't allow addon devs to use dlls. Every single P3D4 aircraft in existence relies on dll files. They'd also have to completely redesign the 3d model because the 3d models are incompatible.
I don't think most people understand what it takes for aircraft to run. Every single thing you do has over 1000 lines of code attached to it. They would have to scrap those hundreds of thousands of lines of code and rewrite it. Its realistically impossible from a business standpoint. The reason the other company MSFS 737 is happening is because they had access to the sdk and files long before most other people so they started work on the 737 before  MSFS was even released and its 100% MSFS code. Their other 737 won't work because of dlls.
The reason scenery has been able to be ported is because it takes much less programming and sceneries are not simobjects..
