777 Patch Update

Recommended Posts

Brian,>Also, an explanation of how the CDU EXE key ties in, and why>it causes the pressurization details to disappear, when>executing a route, was requested, but never given.So your saying when the air synopsis is open, and you are entering a route, you hit the exe key and pressurization readouts disappear even though the air synopsis is still up?Brian

Brian,By default, the PSS T7 loads with the LOWER DU/EICAS set to the ENG page. IIRC, at this point PRESS details are indeed displayed on the UPPER DU/EICAS, indeed with the ENG selected on the LOWER DU/EICAS.We're talking about the LDG ALT, PRESS, etc.On activating an entered route, when pressing the EXE button, the PRESS details disappear from the UPPER DU, exactly as a result of pressing the EXE button.No amount of LOWER DU switchery will bring the display back, to the UPPER DU. The only work around was to display the AIR synoptic on the Captain's ND/INNER MFD. Displaying it this way does indeed bring the PRESS details back to the UPPER DU.

Brians - bothThe other way to get it back was to go into manual pressurisation. This was all discussd in a thread when we were looking at flying to the service ceiling several months ago.The PSS 777 appears to be programmed correctly from all the evidence that we originally found on the internet.John R

John,"The other way to get it back was to go into manual pressurisation."Didn't know that."The PSS 777 appears to be programmed correctly from all the evidence that we originally found on the internet."I really hope that's true, but again, nothing definitive.OK lets face it, in the grand scheme, it isn't a big deal. For me, it's just one of a number of little niggling questions that PSS seems happy to let us argue about, instead of finding out, for certain, one way or another. The last discussion of this issue, in this forum, ended with Graham citing OUR conversation in the main MSFS forum as a definitve answer.Neither one of us knows for sure one way or the other, and if I'm wrong, that's ok with me, I'll be the first to say so.I guess I'd just like PSS to show they at least give enough of a #### about the product to find out. For now, it seems they'd drop it like a hot potato if they could, but that's only my opinion.

Yeah, I dont think its a big deal. But i will do some research on it and thumb through some Boeing manuals....ill ask my dad as well as he might have some insight into it...but we must remember this is not the real a/c...the only way to experience the real thing is to buy one...there are limits on computer programming and such...as far as PSS is concerned, they did an excellent job reproducing the main and important systems on the 777..Brian

ok brian i did some research into your question....let me make sure beforehand that we are on the same page....what your saying is that when you first turn on the batt from a cold and dark cockpit, on the lower portion of the center eicas, the pressurization readouts show up even though the air synoptic isnt open. then once you enter a route and hit 'exe' the readouts dissappear.I spoke with my dad on this issue who is a COA 777 F/O...his first response was that the cockpit is never cold and dark, and that there is always a ground power source hooked up to the airplane...so in other words, hes never seen the pressurization readouts open after starting from cold and dark....im curious about this issue as well and I got out all of the manuals for the 777 and will be looking through them. there also is a probability I will be in the 777 sim in houston within the next few weeks and I might be able to have the instructor set up the scenario your talking about...brian

I have to say that since the patch it's been fine, apart form the "seat headrest" as deatiled in an earlier post. Just my opinion but I HATE it. It completely blocks you're view looking to the left/rear.Please, please, please remove it.
