Brian, In the read me with the download it states After installing these panel.cfg files, do NOT use the FS2Crew Start Center to manage your PMDG 747 panel.cfg files. If you need to manage your PMDG 747 panel.cfg files, do it manually.What does this mean?ThanksAndrew Dixon

Hi Andrew,It means that if you want to swap panel.cfg files for the PMDG 747 after installing the 800 mod (ie., swap between FS2Crew and non-FS2Crew version), you should do so by drilling down into the FSX folder and handling the PMDG 747 panel.cfg files directly.Note: This only applies to people with the -800 models installed. If you don't own the -800 upgrade, nothing changes for you!The Start Center was not designed to handle the PMDG 747-800 models (as the -800 version never existed when the Start Center was created).Best,

I currently own PMDG 747 and FS crew ,i then added 747-8, haven't used it in a while , getting back to reusing it and when i start up my 3 panels go black after plane loades and won't come on . Could this be because i haven't updated .Dave Orr

Hi Dave,If the three panel go black it means your PMDG license failed.Try re-installing your PMDG 747 to regenerate the license.Best,

Bryan,I purchased the 747X8i'Voice Commander'. I don't want to install Voice Commander to 747X-400. I like to use manual Fs2Crew. How can I insatall 'Voice Commander' to only 747X-800 Cargo?Regards

Hi Ahmet,So you want to split them up.A bit tricky, that.What you could do is:1. Install the Voice Commander first. Set the panel.cfg files to FS2Crew via the FS2Crew Config Manager.2. Install the old Button Control version, and ensure the panel.cfg files for the 400 is still using entries from the old 'button' version.It should work.Cheers,
