Bad Performance after Sim Update 7 and Using DX12

Poor Performance After Sim Update 7 and Using DX12

Affected versions: Stable, Development, Experimental

Description

Using DX12 introduced in Sim Update 7 seems to not work well with our aircraft.

Root Cause

Investigation ongoing.

Possible Solution or Workaround

Use of DX11 is recommended for best performance due to an issue with some glass cockpit technologies in the DX12 version of the simulator. This is not an FBW issue and we cannot address it for now - please keep in mind DX12 is officially a "beta feature" and thus should not be used unless you know what you are doing.

Mouse Lock Caused by EFB Input Field

Mouse Lock Caused by EFB Input Field

Affected versions: Stable, Development

Description

In certain situations, if you have selected an input field on the EFB and changed your view away from the EFB, you may no longer have use of your mouse cursor.

Known A32NX Issues

SU9 and TCA Throttle Issues

SU9 and TCA Throttle Issues

Affected versions: Stable, Development

Description

Sim Update 9 caused previous keybindings to cause the engine start switch in the simulator to have erratic behavior causing an input leak making the switch unusable.

Root Cause

Early reports are the secondary input on release is bugged.

Possible Solution or Workaround

Please ensure the following:

  • Set the value Joystick Button 8 for both the values shown below.
  • Set the ACTION TYPE for SET ENGINE NORM MODE to ON RELEASE shown below.

Sample TCA ENG issue resolution

On release

CPDLC with Hoppie on IVAO

CPDLC with Hoppie on IVAO

Affected versions: Development

Description

The answer-transmission of ATC instructions cannot be sent and the DCDU shows "SYSTEM BUSY" or does not send the message. It is not possible to send answers, close or delete ATC instructions.

Root Cause

The IVAO ATC software Aurora sends wrong message IDs in instructions. In the message handling of the A32NX this causes the wrong interpretation and association of messages.

Possible Solution or Workaround

Do not use CPDLC on IVAO.

Additional Information

We are working with IVAO on a bugfix.

WX Radar Does Not Update

WX Radar Does Not Update

Affected versions: Stable, Development

Description

Sim Update 7 broke the weather radar update on the ND in our aircraft.

Root Cause

Sim Update 7 change - cause unknown. We are investigating.

Possible Solution or Workaround

No fix or workaround available at this time.

Turning the WX off and on or TERR ON ND on and off seems to update the WX on the ND.

Fuel Prediction Too low

Fuel Consumption

Affected versions: Stable, Development

Description

Fuel prediction on the MCDU may not calculate enough fuel for the duration of your flight.

Root Cause

We are working on more realistic simulation of various involved systems, e.g. engines. The fuel predication will be inaccurate until we have updated the fuel planning feature on the MCDU. Under Investigation

Possible Solution or Workaround

When using the MCDU fuel planning feature, take more fuel than what is calculated for you - especially for longer flights.

Autopilot: Unwanted Disconnection

Autopilot Disconnection While Interacting with the EFB

Affected versions: Stable, Development

Description

When using the EFB Descent TOD calculator, MSFS control assignments on your keyboard may still be accepted. Therefore, when using the numpad for input into EFB, you may inadvertently be applying flight control events.

Root Cause

We have identified that the Descent TOD page still accepts outside events.

Currently under investigation.

Possible Solution or Workaround

  1. Unbind any flight control assignments for your numpad or number keys on the keybaord through the MSFS settings.
  2. Slightly moving the axis of the rudder and/or sidestick (or pressing 5 on the numpad) after entering data into the EFB. This will center the rudder or alierons to prevent a consistent deflection of flight surfaces.

Autopilot Disconnection Due to Excessive Speed Decay

Affected versions: Stable, Development

Description

Excessive speed decay during level off from open descent can lead to unwanted autothrust disconnection or even alpha floor in certain high drag/low speed situations.

Root Cause

Currently under investigation.

Possible Solution or Workaround

N/A

ADIRS not Aligned When not Starting at Gate

ADIRS not Aligned When not Starting at Gate

Affected versions: Development

Description

ADIRS may not be aligned when spawning anywhere except cold & dark at a gate (intermittent issue)

Root Cause

Initialization timing issue of MSFS.

Possible Solution or Workaround

Workaround: Restart the flight

Outer Tank Fuel Transfer

Outer Tank Fuel Transfer

Affected versions: Stable, Development

Description

Sometimes the sim will "miss" the trigger point being reached for outer tank fuel transfer to initialize. This may happen if the sim is "busy" when working with something else OR initial FOB at the start of flight is below the trigger point.

Root Cause

Intermittent Issue / Under Investigation

Possible Solution or Workaround Add enough fuel to get past the trigger point of 239 gallons before departing.

EFB Issues in External View

EFB Issues in External View

Affected versions: Stable, Development

Description

Can't interact with EFB when popped-out (Right Alt+Left Click) and switching to the external camera.

Root Cause Under Investigation

Possible Solution or Workaround

Make sure to click on the actual EFB screen (not the popped out window) before switching to external camera.

Controls Freeze up While Looking Around

Controls Freeze up While Looking Around

Affected versions: Stable, Development

Description

Using freelook with right mouse button may cause controls to freeze.

Root Cause

MSFS blocks all other inputs when using freelook with mouse button pressed.

Possible Solution or Workaround

Try setting TOGGLE COCKPIT FREELOOK to your mouse Middle Button

Additional Information

Reference: MSFS Forum Post

TCA Throttle Autobrake Disengages While Looking Around

TCA Throttle Autobrake Disengages While Looking Around

Affected versions: Stable, Development

Description

MSFS blocks all other inputs when using freelook with mouse button pressed. The TCA knob for Autobrake setting will be lost if this block lasts longer than 1.5sec.

Start cold and dark at the gate.

Can't Start Engines When Using TCA Throttle

Can't Start Engines When Using TCA Throttle

Affected versions: Stable, Development

Description

Can't start engines with engine switches of Thrustmaster TCA Throttle Quadrant.

Root Cause

Wrong default mapping in MSFS.

Possible Solution or Workaround

  • Open the controls menu
  • REMOVE:
    • “Toggle Engine 2 Fuel Valve” - Set to Joystick Button 4
    • “Toggle Engine 1 Fuel Valve” - Set to Joystick Button 3
  • KEEP or SET:

Liveries Converted from the Default Asobo A320 Cause Issues

Liveries Converted from the Default Asobo A320 Cause Issues

Description

Old liveries or liveries intended for the default Asobo A320 cause issues like artifacts, systems not working, CTDs, etc.

Root Cause

Old liveries or converted Asobo A320 liveries are often not compatible with the latest sim versions or the FlyByWire A32NX.

Also do not convert liveries from the default Asobo A320 any more. Although out Installer still provides this option we do not recommend this any more as these liveries often cause issues.

Possible Solution or Workaround

Use current liveries intended for the FlyByWire A32NX from flightsim.to.

See Liveries Guide

Additional Information


A32NX Config/Usage Issues

Ctrl+E - Engine Start Unsupported

Ctrl+E - Engine Start Unsupported

Affected versions: Stable, Development

Description

The auto start shortcut via Ctrl+E will not work.

Currently you need at least the APU Avail and APU Bleeds to be switched on, as well as the fuel pumps to be on for a normal engine start. (Crossbleed starts will be implemented at a later time).

Root Cause

Our custom systems and realistic simulation of onboard systems requires the proper engine start procedure for the A320neo.

Possible Solution or Workaround

We highly suggest learning how to start the engines manually by reading our beginner guide. Beginner Guide - Engine Start Section.

Cockpit Interaction System

Cockpit Interaction System

Affected versions: Stable, Development

Description

Switches, knobs and dials can't be used with simple mouse clicks as before.

Controls appear highlighted in color (mostly blue) when the mouse hovers over them.

Root Cause

Asobo

Possible Solution or Workaround

We recommend the legacy (previous) method of the Cockpit Interaction System:

  • Go to Menu
  • General Options
  • Accessibility
  • Find the Cockpit Interaction System setting
  • Change to legacy

Additional Information

Using New Cockpit Interaction System

  • Highlight a control (like a knob).
  • Hold Left Click to lock to that control. Now your mouse will not affect any other controls or other mouse bindings.
  • Move the mouse left to turn the knob left, move it right to turn the knob right (with the Left Click held down)
  • You can also use the scroll wheel while holding Left Click down to turn the knob left or right.
  • To push a control / knob in, lock to the control using Left Click and then Right Click.
  • To pull a control / knob out, hold Left Click and then click your scroll wheel Middle Mouse.
    • Note: If you already use the Middle Mouse button to activate freelook this may not work. Check your keybinds so this feature does not conflict.

This list is based on our testing and feedback. For more information see the MSFS Release Notes - Cockpit Interactions.

Direct your support questions and feedback of this feature to Asobo.

No EFB (flyPad) in Cockpit

No EFB (flyPad) in Cockpit

Affected versions: Stable, Development

Description

No EFB (flyPad) visible in cockpit.

Root Cause

Default Asobo A320 aircraft selected instead of the FlyByWire A32NX.

Possible Solution or Workaround

Select the FlyByWire Simulations A320neo (LEAP) in the aircraft selector instead of the Asobo one.

New Aircraft

Incompatible Keyboard Mapping for Pause Function

Incompatible Keyboard Mapping for Pause Function

Affected versions: Stable, Development

Description

If the Pause function is mapped to any key other than Esc this other key will trigger Pause when typing it into input fields of the EFB or the MCDU when using the keyboard input mode.

Root Cause

This is a MSFS limitation for Coherent driven Javascript instruments.

Possible Solution or Workaround

Make sure that the Pause function is only mapped to the Esc key and not to any other keys.


FBW Installer Issues

Livery Module Error

Livery Module Error

Affects Installer Downloads

Description

In certain situations the A32NX may fail to update and display Retrying livery module text alongside Error.

sample installer image

Root Cause

Small issue with our installer and the A32NX files

Possible Solution or Workaround

Please delete the flybywire folder in your community folder and redownload the aircraft.

This should only be necessary once.


Common MSFS Issues Impacting All Aircraft

MSFS Performance Degradation In-Flight

MSFS Performance Degradation In-Flight

Affected versions: Stable, Development

Description

Reports in the MSFS forums detail issues impacting FPS performance in the sim. Notably this occurs during flights that are longer than 2 hours but is not contained to this metric. You may see your normal FPS drop to <10 FPS as a result of this issue.

Additional Information

Follow the MSFS Forums Discussion - here.

CTD (Crash to Desktop)

CTD (Crash to Desktop)

Affected versions: Stable, Development

Description

With the current state of the sim it is basically impossible to analyze CTDs let alone fix them as MSFS does not provide any tools or logs for analyzing CTDs.

If we can reliably reproduce a CTD in our aircraft we will try to fix it or at least work around it. But most CTDs are very unpredictable and can be caused by many things:

  • Add-ons and mods
    • Liveries
      (flightsim.to just removed 1000s of them because of that)
    • Airports
    • Basically any add-on and mod that may be outdated or have conflicting files
  • MSFS itself (e.g. Rolling Cache is often a cause)
  • Hardware (GFX Card and Driver, Overclocking, etc.)
  • Controllers and Drivers
  • Any third party application that connects to MSFS

Unfortunately just using the sim's API functions might trigger a CTD, so the trigger could be the aircraft but the root cause would be the sim.

If you can reproduce it reliably please share this information with us on Discord or our GitHub so we can try to also reproduce it. This would be the first step to fix anything.

Root Cause

Various possible reasons - impossible to determine at the moment.

Possible Solution or Workaround

There also is currently no known guaranteed solution, however users have found success with by trying the following:

  1. Remove everything from the Community folder - really everything!
  2. Perform a Clean Install
  3. Stop any third party application which connect to MSFS
    FSUIPC, YourControls, Fs2Crew, SPAD.next, ...
  4. Run without live weather and/or live traffic.
  5. Delete your rolling cache in the sim and create a new one.
  6. Delete any manual cache in the sim and create new ones.
  7. Run the game as Administrator.
  8. Visit and read the MSFS Known Issues Page OR MSFS Troubleshooting & Support

Additional Information

Please also search in the MSFS Discord and Forum for CTD causes and solutions.

MSFS ZenDesk CTDs-issues-Advanced-Troubleshooting

MSFS Forum ctd-analysis-by-community

Peripherals

This is an important snippet from MSFS known issues.

If you are getting CTDs, it could be one of your peripherals disconnecting sometime during the flight, which then causes the sim to CTD.

It could be anything from a usb drive to a controller. Please try to minimise how many peripherals you have connected.

Latest Nvidia Driver Causes CTD

Latest Nvidia Driver Causes CTD

Affected versions: Stable, Development

Description

Reports on the MSFS forums note that CTD's are happening after updating to the latest driver's from Nvidia - version 497.09. See - this forum post.

Possible Solution or Workaround

  • Please roll back your drivers. Driver Rollback Instructions | Nvidia
  • Nvidia released an updated driver that included CTD fixes for MSFS specifically. You can also choose to update to the lates available driver now - version 497.29. Note: your milage may still vary here.
    • Nvidia Fixed Release Items for MSFS in version 497.29:
      • [Microsoft Flight Simulator]: The game may crash to the desktop during gameplay. [3454519]
      • [Microsoft Flight Simulator]: Purple/blue artifacts appear on ground textures in the game. [3454530]

Additional Information

Driver version 472.47 seems to be compatible as reported by one of our contributors.

CTD When Pressing FLY on World Menu

CTD when pressing FLY on world menu

Affected versions: Stable, Development

See CTD (Crash to Desktop)

Possible Solution or Workaround

Check your content manager for missing packages

Aircraft Invisible

Aircraft invisible

Affected versions: Stable, Development

Description

Aircraft invisible after starting flight.

See Invisible Aircraft for A32NX specific issue.

Root Cause

  • Missing MSFS packages
  • Livery/Mod Conflict

Possible Solution or Workaround

Check your content manager for missing packages

Additional Information

Multiple Throttle Profiles Conflict

Multiple Throttle Profiles Conflict

Affected versions: Stable, Development

Description

If you have used different throttles with your system that have custom profiles saved in the simulator this may cause conflicts with calibration. One example is a reported rare case with the TurtleBeach yoke and the Thrustmaster quadrant creating a conflict when both throttles have a saved profile in the sim.

Root Cause

Even if you have disconnected any "not in use" throttle quadrants the sim may assume the profile is active and conflict with the hardware that you do have plugged in for your flight.

Possible Solution or Workaround

  • Change the profile not in use to a different type of engine mapping that does not have the throttle levers mapped.
    • For example: change it to a single engine profile.
  • Removing one of the profiles that you don't use.
Difficulty Accurately Clicking Controls

Difficulty Accurately Clicking Controls

Affected versions: Stable, Development

Description

Click spots for different controls in the virtual cockpit may seem "misaligned" or generally difficult to accurate select.

Root Cause

Sim Update 7 Issues

Possible Solution or Workaround

Turn off Lens Correction in the MSFS graphics settings.

Lens Correction Settings

Flight Planning and Autoflight Issues

Flight Planning and Autoflight Issues

Affected versions: Stable

Description

There are certain bugs with the default FMS - the FlyByWire team is working on a custom FMS which will fix and address all these bugs and adds much better lateral navigation.

  1. Autopilot tries to go Direct to RWY when activating approach.
  2. Autopilot tries to return to a previous waypoint when activating approach.
  3. Selecting a STAR and arrival runway in the MCDU while in flight will result in the issues above.

Root Cause

Asobo default Flight Planning System causes this.

Possible Solution or Workaround

  • Use DIRECT to head to the correct waypoint on your F-PLN or use selected heading. This should allow you to continue with your selected STAR for arrival.
  • You can also try switching to selected heading BEFORE selecting your STAR and arrival runway to prevent unwanted flight plan redirection.
    • Ensure your next waypoint is correct on the ND before returning to managed HDG/NAV mode on the FCU.
  • If you can, always enter your expected approach in the MCDU before departing. If this doesn't need to be changed, this will skip the turnaround bug on approach. This issue and others like it will be resolved in cFMS.

Additional Information

The Asobo default flight planning system will be completely replaced by the upcoming FlyByWire Custom Flight Management System.

Navigation Data Issues

Affected versions: Stable, Development

Description

Missing navigation data: - Waypoints, VOR, NDB, etc. - SIDs, STAR, APPR - Airports

Root Cause

MSFS' Navigation Data issue - missing data or corrupt data.

Possible Solution or Workaround

If you use Navigraph:

  • Install/uninstall Navigraph data with the Navigraph Navdata Center application.
  • Do not delete navigraph-navdata from the community packages directory, as this will leave default navdata disabled.

If not using Navigraph:

  • MSFS navigation data is not complete and some issues are to be expected especially when using 3rd party planning tools like SimBrief.
  • No workaround available but often the issue can be ignored and still have a successful flight.

Additional Information

You can test these issue by using the MSFS World Map. If the required nav data (waypoint, SID, STAR, APPR, RwY, Airport, etc.) is missing in the World Map as well, then it is a general nav data issue and not an issue with the aircraft.

Also see this post on the MSFS forum: Navigraph airac cycle 2112-load MSFS Database is empty

MSFS Anti-Ice vs. De-Ice Functionality

MSFS Anti-Ice vs. De-Ice Functionality

Description

Icing occurs (windshield, engines, wings) although Anti-Ice is turned on.

Root Cause

There is actually no anti-ice capability in MSFS and Asobo currently has no plans to add it in the near future.

The anti-ice systems therefore work as deice systems (after the fact) rather than anti-ice systems (preventive).

Possible Solution or Workaround

No workaround but flights should not be impacted too much by this.

Additional Information

Consequence of this MSFS behaviour is that the auto probe/windshield heat will not always prevent ice from forming on the windshield or the pitot probe. Although the ice should melt fairly quickly (and no need to switch from auto to on), the windshield can still freeze over and you can lose airspeed information upon first entering icing conditions if they are severe enough.

The same goes for wing and engine anti-ice - turning them on before ice actually forms may not prevent ice from forming there, but it should melt fairly quickly.

NOT IN DATABASE When Loading Flight Plan

See Navigation Data Issues

Rudder Keybindings Not Working

Rudder Keybindings Not Working

Affected versions: Stable, Development

Description

Rudder control with keyboard not possible.

Root Cause

Wrong key bindings.

Possible Solution or Workaround

You have to set your keybinding to rudder axis right and left

Altitude Issues

Altitude Issues

Affected versions: Stable, Development

Description

The effects of non-standard day pressure and temperature on altitude in MSFS were inaccurate during Sim Update 5.

This is reported to be fixed by Asobo in current patch - World Update 6.

Root Cause

MSFS issue.

Possible Solution or Workaround

Climb or descend a couple hundred feet at a time until the in game ATC stops requesting you to climb or descend.

Additional Information

VATSIM

VATSIM controllers may also see you at a different altitude when you are below the transition altitude. We recommend including a note on your flight plan that you are using MSFS. VATSIM software is being modified to remedy this.

MSFS Live Weather

MSFS Live Weather

Affected versions: Stable, Development

Description

If the live weather feature is experiencing issues you may experience the following:

  • Degraded aircraft performance.
  • Airspeed and climb rate issues.

You will typically see higher or excessive fuel flow alongside exceedingly high SAT, which leads to high TAT and ISA deviation.

ISA deviation is the difference between SAT and the ISA temperature for that altitude and is indicated by the value next to ISA in the ECAM.

Root Cause

MSFS Issue

Possible Solution or Workaround

Use a static weather preset for your flight.


Known A32NX Incompatibilities

      • This is due to the new modular system which requires a new full installation.
      • Workaround: Install the add-on again via the installer.
  • VOR/ADF indicators not showing on the ND (fixed)

  • Unable to climb / flaps 1 issue (fixed)

  • EFB not clickable (fixed in development version)

  • V/S mode stuck at 1500 fpm or inoperable (fixed)

  • ILS not showing on approach / does not auto populate in RADNAV (fixed)

    • Workarounds (may apply to 3rd party sceneries):
      • Manually input your ILS frequency into RADNAV. Type in the frequency found on your chart and press the key next to LS/Freq. Sample: 111.30
  • Left PFD lagging / freezing (fixed)

    • The team is aware of the issue and is working hard to resolve it, potential fixes are being tested
  • PFD artificial horizon freezes (fixed)

    • Workaround:
      • Turn off PFD, wait >10 seconds and turn PFD back on.
