777-300 ER Captain Sim

Hello.
I am located in Saint Malo Bretagne France.
I bought the 777 300ER CaptainSim via the “Market Place” of FS 2020.

Never worked properly
Don’t follow the flight plan
Does not manage programmed altitude contines to rise
The vertical stabilizer is permanently oriented to the left or right, which causes the aircraft to tilt to the right or left
FMC cannot re-enter the correct parameters of the 10° flaps imposed instead of 5 or 15
APU start and APU Gen does not need to start the engines before the push.
Can you help me and advise me?
In advance thank you for your help.
Cordially

Hello.
I remain surprised.
I received no comment on the series of malfunctions I encounter with this B 777 from CaptainSim.
Am I the only one who’s been through this  Huh ?
Have a good week.

Not sure what you mean by this. Is this the Cruise Altitude, or an altitude constraint before Cruise Altitude?
The 777-300ER always holds the cruise altitude for me, not sure of altitude constraints in SID's/STAR's, so I use the altitude to hold those (i.e. if the altitude constraint is 6,000, then I set the altitude to 6000, that way it doesn't climb above 6000ft).
I can't get it to follow the descent path after reaching TD, but that also applies in the 747-8i.

The 747 doesn't have a 15o flap setting, so therefore the 777 can't set it at that either due to using the default 747 for all those systems - "Essential functionality paired with default 747 (must be installed) systems simulation"

APU start and APU Gen does not need to start the engines before the push.
Maybe if the external air/power is available, that's enough to provide generator power for engine start (I don't know how to get rid of those - ground services has no options to remove it (that I know of)).

Hello, MARK

Well, I applied all of your recommendations and now everything is working properly.

Too bad that at the purchase of this aircraft the buyers are not informed of these malfunctions and the solutions to be applied.

Thank you so much for your help.

The descripton in the MSFS Marketplace does say "Essential functionality paired with default 747 (must be installed) systems simulation" for the functionality, but as for the other problems, I've never experienced any of them - My MSFS settings are the same as how I set them up when I got access to it during the first Alpha testing phase and had problems with the Legacy Flight Mode.
