How to set up weather radar pmdg 737-8/9

Recommended Posts

Wrong topic you're asking your questions. There's a dedicated PMDG forum here and also a subforum dedicated to the NGX.The NGX doesn't have a weather radar nor will it get one (use the search function)TCAS is described in the NGX manual, so please read it first.

does anybody know how to set up the weather radar in the pmdg 737 ngx and also the TCAS, i'm a noob with this airplane
PMDG say that the weather radar cannot be simulated accurately enough to do it. Basically the weather engine only occurs around the 'player' aircraft. There are many, many, many threads on this.The first reply is a good idea, you should try the tutorial flight, but the basic process is, click in the centre of the button controlling the radar range and move the switch over to TA/RA on the centre console near the Squak code.Hope that helps

If you do a search in the forum, there are a few threads that explain how to add a radar if you are so inclined

I'm wondering if an overlay is possible like I did with the Level-D EHSI. I can dig that old mod up if anyone is interested in trying it on the NGX. Basically the radar was displayed correctly under the map, and it looked as if Level-D themselves had done it. Operated by an authentic reproduction of the WXR 2100.As matter of fact, that mod was also available for the old PMDG NG.This one: http://www.flightsimworld.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=114417

i heard that the VC shot in your link had been photoshopped, and any Wx merge with the LDS 767 was only on the 2D panel.are you saying you have a working EHSI / Wx2100 radar merge in the virtual cockpit and not just for the 2D panels?

Like I said, I had the mod myself. No photoshopping, I promise. Worked like a charm.Edit. Damn, I think you're right. What add on am I thinking of then?

Look through the thread, there are instructions for both 2D and the VC

I'm wondering if the OP was referring to the 'terrain' button? Maybe this is the display he was asking about?

i did some digging this morning, the fswxr2100 was only written for fs9i did find a post somewhere saying that it will work in fsx if you change some of the path names in the config files, but you would still have to write a gauge for iti have no clue how to write gauges, and anyway addongauges went out of business, they don't even offer the wxr2100 anymore. it's been pulled off the simmarket sitea guy in the lds forums did write a popup gauge for the reality xp 500, but it's just the popup, it won't appear on the ND display
