737NGX Dark and Cold start

Recommended Posts

From the FMC select PMDG Setup. Then Select Panel Load State. Then select CLD/DRK. Then activate and execute. After that your bird should load up cold and dark. Hope this helps.

PS: I have attempted to load the default Cessna 172 as i have seen on various sites on the internet and configure that to "cold and dark" then switch to the 737NGX, but the latter aircraft always starts up ready to fly

The Cessna method is a myth and it says so in the documents that are included with the PMDG 737NGX.

Don't do this. Do like rcpistonhead said.

And guys, sign your posts, PMDG has a very strict policy on this.

 

P.S. it's cold and dark... Some people just want to see the world burn...

You just go in the CDU, click on menu, then click on PMDG SETUP, then click on LOAD STATE then choose NGX COLD AND DARK then hit execute and all instruments should go dark and engines should be shut down.

It's not a myth because it works with less sophisticated addons. It doesn't work with the NGX of course.

As mentioned, it is a VERY good thing to read the introduction documentation included in the product. :smile:

+1. RTFM. Always a good idea.

No, scratch that. It's a MUST-read. :t0152:

I am aware of how to load the Cold and Dark panel state however I would like to how to have the aircraft load in the cold and dark config instead of all engine lit up and ready to rock? I believe this is also what the OP was asking.

You can select it as the default state to load from the menu in the FMC.

So long as you select PANEL LOAD STATE - CLD/DRK from the FMC it will load the panels in that state evey time you start a new flight.

James - I have experienced problems with this. I found that the NGX does not like to be loaded over itself. In other words... I get the best performance when I load a fresh NGX every time I start FSX. I find that when you load a saved NGX file the performance suffers a bit compared to just loading a new flight when you start up FSX. I also found that regularly deleting your saved flights will actually keep the NGX running at its best. Of course, PMDG also reccommends regularly running a quality system cleaner as well a defrag.
