There is no panel situation management for the 737.At the time it was not implemented.So no cold&dark.The workaround is to create the situation my manually bringing the plane to the desired state, and save the flight in FS.About the secondary eicas.It only works if you choose to.For this go in the PMDG flightsimulator menu, wander about in the options: in the "airline" options menu, you find voices to mark in order to activate the dual eicas setup.

Hi John,I'm mostly going off of memory here, since I haven't been able to fly the 737 since I switched to FSX, but I'll try to help here.1. IRS not simulated - yeah, pretty much. Honestly other than starting the plane up, I don't think you'd notice it.2. EICAS screen switches "inop" - As another poster said, I think you need to go into the PMDG options and set a carrier option for it to be active. I know for a fact that it works, because I used it all the time. I forget the exact name of the carrier option.3. no cold & dark function - I think there are a few options here. The first option is to start your flight with the default cessna loaded. Kill the mixture, the avionics switch, the mags, and the battery/master switch, and then switch to the 737. I think the cockpit will then be in a cold & dark state. You could then save the flight, I suppose, but I recall that loading the default cessna first improved performance for some reason.Good luck, hope that helps.-stefan

Nameless,If you have the 800-900 series the dual EIS screens are there. Look through the manual how to configure it.The 600-700 alone does not incorporate this feature unless you have the above installed as well.There is no saved default situation for C&D but you can easily get to a C&D state and save that situation. See previous posts for this issue.Hope it helps,
