HOW TO INSTALL:

Please not mix files with other version.
Download link: http://jardesign.org/a320/download/inst … 20XP11.zip

  - be sure, that you use X-Plane 11.00
  - copy unziped "320_JARDesign" folder to ..\X-Plane 11\Aircraft\ folder
    (be sure, what you are not use nonEnglish symbols in aircraft installation path)
  - start X-Plane 64 bit and open a320, activation window is going to show up
  - enter your serial key (Regcode), click NEXT and after a successful activation reopen aircraft via X-Plane menu
  - activation works well with both MAC/WIN 64 bit

UPDATE YOU NAV DATA WITH FRESH CYCLE (if needed)

a320 use NavData from
../X-PLANE 11/Custom Data/GNS430/navdata/ folder
if not find there – will try to read it from
../X-PLANE 11/Aircraft/330_JARDesign/_navdata/
If you need update your cycle, please use Aerosoft/Navigraph
- “JARDesign a320/330 Native format” or (the same in fact)
- “XPLANE_GNS430_777WORLDLINER_FF757PROF_NATIVE”
and put new cycle to ..X-PLANE 10/Custom Data/navdata/ folder

About serials and activations:

- All beta-testers, who have personal serial from JARDesign may use it with XP11. If problems - please skype me or http://www.support.jardesign.org
- All users who bought the A320 AFTER the X-Plane 11 presentation event (October 2016 and later) may use their serials with X-Plane 11. If problems - please http://www.support.jardesign.org
- All users who bought the A320 BEFORE the X-Plane 11 presentation event (October 2016 and later) may update their serials (get new one) to make it worked with both - XP10 and XP11.

This JARDesign service should help for any users, what have a320 from any shop http://jardesign.org/a320-serial-update-step-13/


Update fee is about $19,95 (not include VAT for your country). Sure, you own a320 for X-Plane 10 and may continue to use it with X-Plane 10 simulator with no problem. No update need in this case. Support is continue.

As you know may be, you may use some my tricks from facebook to take a320 for XP10 and make it loadable with XP11. Please note what some old XP10 features not supported by XP11 more and you will get aircraft with not 100% compatible 3D, perfomance and (after saving with new PlaneMaker) FMGS navigation part.

Please note what this time we have beta of X-Plane 11 and beta of a320 ("beta" - product for testing and may not work well, hare errors and so on). If you need release, need stable version, please wait.

Thank you!!!!

Please read a FAQ before you post a bug http://support.jardesign.org

Re: ver.3.0 beta 2,3,4,5,6,7 for X-Plane 11

Awesome, bought the upgrade!

One thing I would like to request is: Can you add the correct Aircraft information like Manufacturer and Class? That way it would show up nicely in X-Plane 11's new picker, instead of being at the bottom showing up as "Other"

Re: ver.3.0 beta 2,3,4,5,6,7 for X-Plane 11

Will any of the updates made for XP11 be put into an update for XP10?

Re: ver.3.0 beta 2,3,4,5,6,7 for X-Plane 11

My first flight with my favorite aircraft was great!
But only the idle power was too low. I think over 40% N1 for taxi is to much. (7 tons fuel).

Disable "Show clickable regions in the cockpit" setting under General Settings.

Re: ver.3.0 beta 2,3,4,5,6,7 for X-Plane 11

Does this mean that development for XP-10 is now dead?

Question:  Will the BSS sound pack V3 work with this updated BETA version?
I haven't had the chance to try yet.

I think the org store has a version 3.1 of the sound pack currently available for download/purchase

Startup XP11 goto Settings then to General tab and UN-check the clickable regions in the cockpit.

Re: ver.3.0 beta 2,3,4,5,6,7 for X-Plane 11

I am having the problem where the PFD and ND go blank when using SHIFT + L or K to change time of day from daytime to night time.

Re: ver.3.0 beta 2,3,4,5,6,7 for X-Plane 11

Test flight KBOS-KJFK, XP11, A320 v3b20XP11, XL,FM SkyMaxxPro v.4-2.1 and RealWeatherConnctor 1.1
1. BSS sound pack 3.1 caused crash
2. During taxi: throttle forward a bit too high caused warning "Terrain, Terrain pull up"
3. QNH STD on PFD continue blinking all the time
4. I will be nice to see pilots in cockpit during flight
5. Smoke from AI aircraft engines are looking bed and disturbing as a sort of dark claud in the sky Would recommend to eliminate it. (see images)

All in al seems to be a stable version in all flight situation.
6. Very disturbing the fault design of the pilot headrest !(trying to look out from the right windows at the adjusted sit position (see images)

Re: ver.3.0 beta 2,3,4,5,6,7 for X-Plane 11

Hi,

I have some problems with the Navigraph update. The info in the \GNS430\Navdata seems correct (CRJ200 by JRollon shows the update version) but the A320 shows the A1410 cycle. Anyone is having the same issue?

19

Re: ver.3.0 beta 2,3,4,5,6,7 for X-Plane 11

Great update and fixes most problems you had to trick around for X Plane 11! Still there is annoying problem with QNH. Sometimes it jumps 2 forward and back thus you can't always select correct QNH.

Re: ver.3.0 beta 2,3,4,5,6,7 for X-Plane 11

Looks like if you want to fly with HDR OFF, you are stuck with a chrome looking interior....
Panel lighting seems to require HDR as well, except for that right panel light....
All lighting except the dome and the right panel light require an APU or Ground Power....

Probably a time zone issue.... I'm in same situation.  But it's 3.47 am in JAR world. Be patient.

Re: ver.3.0 beta 2,3,4,5,6,7 for X-Plane 11

Awesome! Thanks for update, got my serial quick too.

BSS 3.1 did not crash on me yet, works fine so far.

Some things:
ECAM Buttons are black, cant see them at all unless they are selected.
Red overspeed tape does not work at high altitudes
Overspeed warning does not go away even if you slow down

Re: ver.3.0 beta 2,3,4,5,6,7 for X-Plane 11

Had a couple of problems today.  Firstly my flight plan would not load as a co-route and gave an error which then locked the FMC so that no other input worked, producing hundreds of identical SASL error lines in the logfile.txt!

Next flight accepted the same flight plan and I was flying happily but at some point while I took a phone call from my daughter I took my eye off the screen so do not know what happened but I then realised that the 320 was flying in a straight line and not following the FMC flight path, even though FD A/Thr and AP were all on.

Lastly there was a problem with the next flight (on the stand) with the Parking Brake.  When I pressed 'B' I simply got "Parking Brake Off...Parking brake On" so I could not move the A/C.

In summary I do not know if any of the above was my fault or not.  I submitted a ticket for the first one and will wait and see what anyone says!
