Ron, Don't you think they KNOW what they are doing sir? See if you had a real idea here you would KNOW that Anthony is ONLY the FMC programmer, that's his job. Thanks for your input but I myself have NO preformance issues....[h4]Best Wishes,Randy J.

Hi Ron,Well, in an abstract way, yes, probably...But... there is a But...The PMDG team is a team (!), and therefore each member has his own area of specialization. Too many cooks on one dish spoil it, don't they ? So we're not all focusing on the same areas, and we don't all have in depth knowledge in all areas (well, certainly not me ;-) )The VNAV patch should be available today, according to RSR.I'm now on a new batch of stuff... with fixes, improvements and new stuff, such as those MA procs.Makes sense ?anthonyAnthony MertonPrecision Manuals Developmenthttp://www.precisionmanuals.com

To all the COMPLAINING people...want the real thing?Pay 5000 dollars for your private pilot licence, then about another 5000 for your multi engine rating then about 3500 for your commercial licence and finally 15000 dollars for your 737 NG type rating, until then, don't expect a 35 dollars product to have all the features as a 737 NG full motion flight simulator...I'm happy beacause I have the chance to experience the FMC operations, do I wish it had ALL the features in it?? yes, do I COMPLAIN because it doesn't have it? no, why? beacause if it did 1) I wouldn't have paid 35 dollars for it 2) If I did it would probably be the last product they will make beacuse after it they would go bankrupt.So in conclusion to all this, every update is very welcome, and I am very grateful that they take the time and they are honest and caring about their customers and don't release a product and not update it...THANK YOUFor all your hard never ending work to the whole PMDG team I thank you very much, it's because of people like you in this industry that we can enjoy this ever groing hobby, not to mention how much your product's have helped me as far as FMC operations go, certainly will give me an advantage when I go to the airlines..And I can say, having bought all of their products but the 757 v2 for fly of the quality of their products.CheersFedericoP.S.: english is not my first language so it's hard to distinguish between bad words and acceptable ones, well besides the obvious ones, so I had to edit the post, sorry folks!

Looking good, Anthony.Probably a little off topic, but I notice in the latest Bulfer 737NG FMC User's Guide that the author has given an example of a typical LEGS page (which includes the runway entry)..... Speed/Altitude in small font unless otherwise stated... ACT ROUTE LEGSHOAGI********225/10450MACED********240/ 7123VETTE********185/ 3064JAKPO********150/ 2000 (both in large font)RW15R********.../ 150 (large font)His comments for the right side of the runway line are....#Displays Threshold Crossing Height#Displayed as a mandatory "at" altitude restriction#Speed restriction is blank#Manual entry is not allowed.Etc...The latter lines seem a bit ambiguous. Is the speed restriction normally blank... and does he mean that a speed restriction is not allowed, or a height restriction?Why would the speed be blank and no manual entries be allowed?So far he hasn't responded to a private e-mail on this.Thanks.Cheers.Ian.

Hope you can get the DP/STAR transitions in as well as the MA - that will really make my day!Ryan

The way to have a speed there is to choose your VREF on the APPROACH REF page, by line selecting a given flap/speed setting.The FMC adds the wind correction factor (same page) and sets the runway speed constraint with that.cheers,anthonyAnthony MertonPrecision Manuals Developmenthttp://www.precisionmanuals.com

"The way to have a speed there is to choose your VREF on the APPROACH REF page, by line selecting a given flap/speed setting.The FMC adds the wind correction factor (same page) and sets the runway speed constraint with that."Ah, the wonders of modern technology, eh? :-) This Smiths FMC is quite a marvel.Thanks (again), Anthony.Cheers.Ian.P.S. Ooops... Just found it in the Bulfer Manual on page 179 :-hah I still had 100 pages of reading to find the answer.

"...or if you care to say any words about them?"Basically, Tord, the Bulfer manuals are the "bible's" of FMC users. If something is not in these manuals, they are (almost) not worth worrying about. Basically, Hardy Heinlin used the manual to programme PS1's FMC (with a little help from his offsiders, of course ;-)).The NG book has about 300 pages of pictures and text, the Big Boeing book (757, 767, 747-400 and 777) has probably a similar amount these days (my edition is quite old now).The books list the shortfalls of various FMC types and even bugs. The Advanced Techniques section towards the back of the book is a real eye-opener. Engine failures is towards the front... in the "beginners" section :-) It may not give a button push sequence for every situation, but I'm sure you'll get by.The only drawback is that the associated forum, "Bluecoat", is strictly for real pilots and engineers.Anyway, hope this helps (if I tell you any more about using the manuals with PS1, we'll be a little off-topic ;-)).Cheers.Ian.
