747-400 switches problem

Recommended Posts

Guest Rwilson

hi all, i have now got the 747 queen of the skies, but i'm already having my troubles with it. When there is a switch or a knob that i want to play with, it doesn't let me. I can't turn switches that has a knob. I can't fly the plane unless i can move switches. When i do switch on one of them, i can't turn them back as they were before. It just comes up with this gold arrow with it pointing both ways. Could anyone help me?robbie

I think I follow you, Robbie. But if I've missed the point, my apologies.The trick is to left-click to turn the knob or switch counter-clockwise, right-click to turn the switch clockwise.

Robbie,I would recommmend a thorough read-through of the manual. The instructions on how to change the PFD barometric altimeter can be found in chapter 7 page 16. Hope it helps,
