Honeywell MCP SP1

Recommended Posts

I installed SP1 and noticed the Digits on the Honeywell MCP still looks white, could someone confirm it was changed to orange in SP1.

Ok, thanks for the confirmation but it is a problem for me. I hope PMDG fix it soon.
Turn the Main-Panel Light on and they will become orange!

Yup! on the Honeywell.
Of course you catch and quote that in the like 2 min while I check In FSX, but anyways, if you turn the main panel light on it should resolve your issue!

I prefer PMDG fix it, also the Radio stack.
No need to fix it, just turn on the light and they are orange smile.png

Actually the Honeywell MCP is still offered as an option when an airline is buy a 737NG and it's important to me because that 737-800 in my pic has the Honeywell MCP and every 737-800 in Caribbean Airlines fleet has the Honeywell even the one that was recently delivered from Boeing a few months ago. The Radio stack and the two windows on the pressurization panel should be orange also but they are blue/black.

???Shocked.gifHypnotized.gifShocked.gif ??? Are you out of mind dude? Can't you fly if a light is white or red or orange? Who the hell cares about? I don't even look at this when I fly! Or you didn't fly at all and spend hours at gate trying to admire the cockpit?!? If is so important to you go and buy a real Boing 737 and don't disturb PMDG with this silly things!P.S. I see that a real ALITALIA Boing 737 has a pigeon poo on captain window, mine don't! I have to submit a ticket to PMDG to fix this problem cause I can't make a fly anymore !!! Have anyone else have this great problem too??? Nail%20Biting.gifNail%20Biting.gifNail%20Biting.gif

For some people stuff like this is important. I don´t understand how people always say that PMDG is SOOO correct in their display of aircraft but when stuff like this happens say it´s not important, so when errors like these come up, people have a valid point to complain about, because of the known quality of PMDG.And getting so worked up like like Artur....I don´t know how old you are, but when judging your post, I guess not very old. RYR738 is also very known for posting not very helpfull stuff.

Whether the LCD digits appear white/gray or orange depends on the back-lighting and the brightness of the environment. Just take a look at various flight-deck shots at airliners.net. The rendition in the NGX seems to be accurate, as far as FSX allows for it.As for the Honeywell MCP in the NGX, the LCDs are orange even during daytime - are you saying they should have a more saturated colour? I would not say that they are white at all.

So are what exactly are we wanting, more orange font or LCD's?

I left this thread for one night and came back and saw a few childish comments, not everyone posted something childish, just a few. The one who posted childish comments I would like to ask you to refrain from posting in this thread. The MCP font (Digits) suppose to be orangish color. The window and font for the radio stack and pressurization panel suppose to be orangish also, I hope PMDG see this thread and fix it because I brought it to their attention before the SP1 was released.

If you fly durring the evening hours turn the backlight on and they will be orange, right now however I think PMDG still has bigger issues with the NGX then the color of the displays, some people are getting wonderful CTD's again....

Fareed,It does appear that at some point the font color changed from Orange to White inadvertantly. It was most likely overwritten in an update. I have opened an item with the team to look into it to see if it can be easily repaired or not so we will look at it. In regards to the Radio Panels and Pressurization panel, the style of digital readout is an option, some companies use the LED display and some use the LCD displays. Most new aircraft are all coming with the LCD due to improved reliability.

Thanks,Paul. I do appreciate your reply, it was very professional and it makes PMDG look professional also, unlike some of the replys in this thread. I look forward to the fix.
