Setting NAV1, 2, ADF etc problem on Concorde

Recommended Posts

For some reason, I can't set the radios on the Concorde, for example, I tried to set NAV1 as instructed in the tutorial flight, I can hear the click when I rotate the mouse wheel, but the numbers don't change, I also tried clicking the + and - bits with the same problem, it also happens in the NAV2, and it seems most other things that have a rotary type input. Am I doing something weird, or is there a setting i need to do?

Same prob here. I even fired the flight up from scratch anmd set the NAV and ADF before going through the start proc. Theres something locking them both off. I'm glad I'm not the only one.RegardsCell

cfg file settings are correct. Just been trying it again to see if it was a switch that was causing it through the tutorial. The first time they locked on the overhead panel on page 23. So I rum through the check list again pressing each switch and checking back to see if the NAV's were still working. Was fine. kept going through and they have locked while I was setting up the fuel tanks on page 30.So it looks like it's a time constraint. I'll leave it running from scratch and see if I can see when it locks.RegardsCell

I tried leaving it see if it was a time issue, but was ok. Tried another couple of times, but was still doing it at various points through the prep.System specs are,XP Pro SP2FS9 with the patch, but with the no-cd hack but version 9.1 (Killed my cd-rom last year)FSUIPC 3.4 registeredASUS A7N8X-E DeluxeAMD 3.2 Barton128 Gefarce 128 5900xt1.5 gig DDR 333what else do you need ?

I'm having the exact same problem, I've been following the flight tutorial and when it comes to setting the NAV radios I only hear the sound effect when clicking and the frequency selected remains the same.

Somehow when the tutorial loads...sometimes the avionics switch is turned off. If I re-load a default flight and make sure the avionics switch is ON I have no problems witht setting the nav radios.Best Regards,Randy

(I don't know if my post of last night was lost, eventually forgive me for the double message, but I feel it's important)I've managed to reproduce the problem, and it's actually time-related, as Cell suspected.I load the "cold and dark" situation, PSSConcorde_1, and when the panels initialize, I start a timer. I do absolutely nothing of the tutorial, just staring at the screen and changing NAV frequencies every few minutes.After 32 minutes and 45 seconds (approx), the NAV frequencies do not work anymore. I can reproduce the situation at will (I've done it three times yesterday) so if you need other informations to help you track the bug, just let me know.Giorgio (Ksabers)

couple of things to tryopen the panel configuncheck both startup optionsstart FS and load your default flightswitch to the Concordedo you get the same thing??also as a long shothave you checked under Aircraft, Failuresmake sure nothing is setJohn PSS SUPPORTsupport@phoenix-simulation.co.ukhttp://www.avsim.com/pss/conc2004.jpg

I tried the tutorial again, and couldn't set the radios at the point that it asks you. However, I was able to set them once I had started engines 2+3!

Ok, I've tried this way:1) Concorde Panel Config: UNCHECK both startup boxes2) Start FS3) Load my default flight (Genoa Sestri LIMJ - Cessna C172)4) Check no failures selected or armed5) Selected Concorde VC - British6) At initialization, I've started my timer7) Checked again no failures, to be sure.8) Tried NAV radios at 10 secs interval9) They stop to work around 10 minutes and 20 secs after the aircraft load.10) As I said, loading the PSSConcorde_1 file with both boxes checked, the failure time was around 32'45".I've repeated three times the procedure and the result is the same. Any suggestion is welcome!Giorgio (Ksabers)

This weekend I've done some other checks. The problems still persist. If I load the cold&dark configuration, the radio stops after 32 mins, but actually they work again after engine start 2&3. If I uncheck the start boxes and load my default flight, they stop after 8/9 mins (definitely, it seems).Could be a problem related to the infamous "battery life" bug of FS2004?Giorgio (ksabers)

I've managed to time them and I agree with Giorgio. They start to work after engine start.

Yeah, I have had this/similar problems too.A properly set default flight, then load the concorde and start my prep. I switch the MSFS ATIS on so I know the radios are working, then after a random amount of time they cut out. If I now load a default aircraft the radios start-up again (the Avionics is shown as on). Go back to the Concorde and they are OK again. This can happen 3 or more times during a pre-flight, and I also found that selecting 'reset flight' will usually bring the radios back too. The trouble is, each time I reset the flight, there is no guarantee the CDU will retain my route data. On my last flight I had to reload all my waypoints 3 times. There's nothing worse than punching in my last waypoint, only to hear the radio cut out ( I keep the ATIS on all the time, to ensure the radios are working), knowing I may have to punch them all in again.This is only on the ground using ground power BTW, there is no problem through the rest of the taxi and flight.I am still impressed by this bird though :)

John, have you been able to reproduce this bug at PSS headquarters? It seems that many customers have found it... if you need other informations about my PC configuration, or if I can do something to help your programmers to track down this little nasty thing, just let me know!Giorgio (Ksabers)

John and PSS Team:First, thank you again for a wonderful product. You guys outdid yourselves this time! I flew the 1st tutorial flight yesterday (LFPG - KJFK) without a hitch! The effects on the engines when the reheaters are on is amazing. The panels are also incredidle, and I like solution you guys implemented for "panel" navigation/viewing. My first flight ended with a perfect Autoland at 31L (vapor effect over the wings).Today I was planning on a flight from KJFK on Speedbird 1 (no vc) and experienced the "Setting NAV1, 2, ADF etc problem." Here is what I can add:1. My flight prep took 3 hours due to interruptions (I hit pause several times).2. FSUIPC 3.411 (battery forever selected)3. Even though I set my cockpit to cold and dark, I found some of the pumps/stuff on. Does the VFE also work during pre-flight?4. Upon taxi (maybe before) could not set NAVs and ADFs (heard the clicks)5. I did open the ATC window to request 31L for progressive instructions (yes I am wimp). ATC was not responding though. Could not get ATIS through FS ATC.6. Upon take off, autopilot was not responding accordingly (AT1 was working, but could not hold heading and altitude). Was using FSNavigator coupling. Had to abort trip and perform a manual landing back on 31L (without ILS), which was cool! :)Anyway, hope this helps.Thanks again for a gem of a product.Fabio van Roon
