Confirmed for B744, MD11 and B737 both in VC and in 2D with both the (M)CDU and the ND.

AFAIK:

 

- CDU: yes.

- ND: no.

Hmm, I consider independent configuration of the ND's as meaning they are independent. This is possible in the 747x and NGX, was it not possible with 737 NG for FS9?

everything you say is right, but my question is one other.

the PMDG 777 has two (M) CDU and ND independent displays?

No worries.

What they mean is that every other product PMDG has developed in the past have independend CDUs and NDs, so, by analogy, why would it be different in the 777 or any other future product?

Exactly. I dont see them taking a remedial step with the 777.

Do you want to place a bet on whether the FMC and ND displays will be independent in the PMDG 777? My money says they will be independent.;)

It could just be retracted ... :rolleyes:

Especially since they use a common "code base" for all their releases - the 777 coding will be based on the NGX coding (somewhat developed further).

 

I understand, Sebastien, you're waiting for PMDG staff to confirm ...

This product has more features than the NGX, not less.  That should answer these types of questions.  :P

Of course it will, PMDG will not follow the same path as a certain company that just recently released an A320 *cough cough*

Long Live "MCDU" !(kidding like you oliver!)

The MD-11 has three (M)CDUs - one more than the NGX ...   :rolleyes:

Robert won't ban you from the forum for a question like that - he will ban you from 777 release!!!   :lol:

The MD-11 has MCDUs - so chances are the term is not completely unknown to PMDG.   :biggrin:

As we move forward in time, it is usually expected that things will have more features.

 

I know sometimes this doesn't happen, like in the example of the Concorde. Back in the 1970's you could travel the Atlantic at twice the speed of sound at 60,000ft. Now you go at Mach 0.84 at 35,000ft. (incidently, often in the 777 lol).

 

Back in the 1970's some very talented people went to the moon. In the 1980's those people just went into low earth orbit on a reusable space-plane that landed on a runway, and now in 2013, people go to space in a russian rocket designed in the 1960's that lands with a parachute in the Kazakhstani steppe.

 

But seriously, if it had a feature in the NGX, it will probably have it in the 777, or better.

 

 

... either that or it won't have windows or doors or 3d cockpit, and the engines will start with ctrl+e and all navigation will be via the default GPS.

 

obviously not.

 

This is PMDG, not that other lot that have an A320 out there with only 1 MCDU.

(This fact may explain this whole thread. Both why the OP is worried they're only going to get 1 CDU, and why they called it an MCDU.)

Come on guys. You are at PMDG forum, discussing NGX and 777. You should know perfectly well that 777s come with MCDUs and so do 737s. The NGX also has one. Well two.

 

The difference is, there are Boeings with CDUs, while there only are Airbus (A320 and later) with MCDUs.

A310's have them and I'm pretty sure most A300's have been retrofitted to have them.
