Jetway not connecting to A320 Ultimate

Recommended Posts

We might do it someday. However I still don't understand why they don't connect that to the default x-plane datarefs like all other developer do. They know how to do it because their Boeing aircrafts work perfectly.

The reason for the difference to their other aircraft is that the FF A320 was ported from a stand-alone A320 simulator and therefore is not using XP internal datarefs nor flight model. They have now added datarefs that XP understands.

I have another issue. All the jetways I have added to sceneries leave a significant gap when connected (see screenshot). Is there a way to correct the gap? 

Many thanks,

Hans

Thanks Marten!

I installed the latest version and re-installed all the jetways and it’s working as expected now.

I have another couple of questions.

1) Is there a possibility to change the order of the jetway animations? I believe it wold look more natural if the order were like this: >Rotate3>Extent>Rotate2>Rotate1 (wheel direction adjustments when needed)

2) There is a possibility to synchronize XP datarefs with FFA320 datarefs using the FFA320 Connector. Which XP datarefs are needed for SAM to function automatically?

Many thanks

Hans

No.

Thanks Marten!

Turns out that the FFA320 "inner workings" keep the XP dataref for the Beacon lights (e.g. sim/cockpit/electrical/beacon_lights_on) in a permanent ON state. Looks like nothing can be done about it at this time.

Yes it is technically but its a lot more work than you might expect. If we find enough people willing to pay for that we sure do. 

How much would it cost?

I must admit that after the updates, the automatic connection of the jetways to FF A320 is broken. You can manually connect though. Just fyi.
