I'm Impressed, But

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,Although I'm still flying my first flight with today's pre-release download. I must say you've done a tremendous job in fixing some of the problems I've seen. I do have one problem thats bugging me.The main beef I have right now is with the Radio Panel. I am unable to tune the COM radios.Please don't tell me to load the Cessna first, there's got to be a better way, there must be a fix.

I wonder if you have some left over from the RC1 package; when I un-installed it I made sure I got rid of everything. I manually removed any entries in the registry. removed any folders left behind etc etc.Perhaps try a un-install make sure everything is gone and do it again. I can tune the radios just fine in all aircraft.

Hi,I uninstalled the old RC1 before installing the last release.Also, if the COM radios don't work, the Auto NAV radios don't work as well.The COM radio's work if I load the default Cessna and then load the PSS 777. The problem is, I don't want to have to load the default Cessna everytime I want to fly this aircraft.It would have also been nice to have NAV radio's that I can set myself.

Here's an way I've been using since I had FS9.Select the Cessna 172Then select the airport (your airport of choice, where you will be flying out most of the time)select the weather theme you would like to have by default (It's set to real world weather on my system)then select the time of season (I have mine set to system time)Then click "Save Flight" and type in a name, then check 'Set as Default'Then click the 'Fly Now!' buttonTurn everything off except the master switch and the avionics switch. Then click 'File' and go down to 'Save flight', save it under the same name you did earlier, make sure you checked 'Save as default'After that is done, the Cessna 172, the airport, weather of your choice should appear at the next restart of FS9.After that, load the PSS 777 and repeat the steps over as above replacing the C172 with the PSS 777.This way the avionics switch is left on but everything is off, and the PSS 777 will load by default now ;)

Hello,How about an answer from PSS, this is the only aircraft that I have a problem with in regards to the radio's, and I'm not the only one having problems. I should not have to go through all these steps to get the radio's to work. This is not a limitation in FS2004 its a problem with the T7 and should be fixed.

Yes I have the same problem and it's pretty ridiculous. I tried flying the 777 last night, and while a lot of bugs have been fixed I still can't tune the radios/use them and at 80 knots the airplane started lifting off and drifting off the runway. I'll wait for a patch.

Alright look...If you want to fly the T7, then it's default Cessna, Magnetos - Both, Master Switches - On, Avionics - On. If this is too much trouble for you, or too complicated for you to wrap your head around, I suggest requesting a refund, as this is the ONLY way it will work properly.

Ah Brian the arrogant one is back.Brian these people have got a very genuine issue and all you have done is insult them. I do not need to carry out the your procedure to get the radio panel to work.So where is your theory there oh smart one?I remember your arrogance from the Feelthere Forums, you promised to stay away from that, how about doing the same thing here?Go on do us all a favour.Garry

Hi Brian,Until I get a response from PSS stating they are "NOT" going to fix this problem I will not ask for a refund.If regards to your other remarks, guess you know where you can stick it!

Brian these people have got a very genuine issue and all you have done is insult them. I do not need to carry out the your procedure to get the radio panel to work.To quote Mike himself:"The COM radio's work if I load the default Cessna and then load the PSS 777. The problem is, I don't want to have to load the default Cessna everytime I want to fly this aircraft."So as you can clearly see, this is purely a matter of laziness. A solution has been presented. It is admitted that the solution works. Mike just doesn't want too. Secondly, another case of the invisible insults I take it. Please, quote where I've insulted anyone.

Mike,I assume you are quoting me, in an effort to illustrate where I've insulted you. I guess I just don't see how those comments can be comsidered insults. The most certainly may be things you don't want to hear, but they are hardly insults.At any rate, it really doesn't matter. You have your idea of how things should work, and then there's reality. They either match, or they don't. You know how to work around the "problem". If you choose not to, good luck, you're on your own.

As I have already said, if you took the time to read other peoples responses instead of having your arrogant head firmly shoved up your ****, I do not need to do your superfix. My Radio panel works without it.Please tell me why Michael should have to? Garry

:)Yet, I am the insulting one here ?:)This seems really tough for you, so again, to quote Mike:"The COM radio's work if I load the default Cessna and then load the PSS 777. The problem is, I don't want to have to load the default Cessna everytime I want to fly this aircraft."Is it really so difficult for you, Garry ?

Mike,I will not talk down to you or try to insinuate that something might be over your head. I will simply point out that it is pretty widely known that if you want to use a complex addon aircraft in FS2004 that you first need to load a default aircraft, such as the Cessna 172 without any addons installed into it. Complex aircrafts work outside of the normal Flight Simulator framework to work around FS's limitations. I have encountered problems myself when trying to load a complex addon aircraft after just previously been in another complex aircraft. The cure is to just load up the C172 prior to switching between complex aircrafts. Works every time and, again, this is widely known. Just ask any or all complex aircraft developers.What aircraft are you loading prior to using the PSS 777?I could be wrong about this and perhaps there is some way for PSS to cure your problem. But I just wanted to point out what is indeed a widely known issue with aircrafts that work outside the normal FS framework. Personally, my sim always starts up with the default C172 and I've never changed it due to this known issue. If I want to switch to another complex aircraft, I never do it without first switching to the C172 to ensure I will be flying problem free.Regards,Jimmy Richards

gentlemen,it looks, that allways the same people have allways problems, the same questions, same calls, same brazen menacies. With the Pre Delivery and now, of course, with the final product as well. Maybe there is somethings wrong with that customers or there computers? And not with the T7, because 99% for all other it works fine.......regards from GermanyPeter

Hi Jimmy,I have a saved PSS777 flight that I load.Steps taken1. Load Cessna, Masters, Avionics, and Mags On2. Load PSS7773. Move the clock to a position on the main panel where I want it.4. Save the flight5. Load the saved PSS777 flightI get the same problem,the radio's don't work, and when the radio's don't work the auto NAV don't work as well.In regards to complex aircraft inside FS2004. I also own LDS 767-300 and PMDG's 737/747 aircraft and do not have any radio problems.

This post is really just trying to help Mike, really, OK ?You must switch on the avionics, both master switches, and set the magnetos to both in the Cessna, before loading the T7. Please try it.

I see now that you are saving a PSS 777 situation and trying to use the saved situation is a problem. As long as you're not trying to load the saved flight/situation right after having been a complex aircraft, I would have to concur that this is a problem that only PSS can explain or fix.Cheers,Jimmy Richards

I guess the only thing is, if he's never actually switched on the masters, avionics, and mags, BEFORE switching to the T7 and saving the flight, then this will all carry over into the new saved flight, and the results would be the same. The 3 things I mentioned are REQUIRED, save maybe being able to get away wothout switching the mags.
