Need help for two small Problems

Recommended Posts

Guest wrussd

Hello All,I am having a problem trying to use the cycle708 SIDSTAR data for my PMDG 737 at KORD. Initially I was getting the err: rwy 10 unknown message on the FMC when I selected the DEP/ARR function. I consulted this forum and downloaded a new AFCAD and changed the runways, starting points and ILS names to rwy 10 and rwy 28. The new runway appeared in the starting locations list when I selected the airport to create a new flight. However, the error message still pops up on the FMC. I can't think of what else I need to do to correct this problem.Also; I like to have the FMC popup on the right side of the screen. I've changed the screen position entry to position=8 but it still pops up on the left side. How can I change this?Any help gratefully appreciated.ThanksRuss

KORD changed runway numbers cycle 0707 and they will again 0709.The airac data needs to be either updated or manually edited (not the same as sidstars), the AFCAD doesn't determine runway numbers for the FMC although it's nice to have scenery that matches real world.You can get airac data from navigraph.com (for a small fee ~US$2.70/cycle).Sorry, no help on how to change where the FMC window opens; didn't know you could. I've assigned a key to it to make it go away easier.
