You have to press the APU fire test button 24,5 times to get it to work. It's a known limitation of FSX.

Alright alright I get it. No need for the comments just a simple question. But I will still try the APU fire test method. Seems legit...

You really can't blame ANY comments for this topic. If you really ask this question again... than.. just go away.

I'm new to PMDG products and I did not realise that this was a silly question. 

Dont take it personally. Things can get rather harsh here on a silly question. Welcome to avsim and using PMDG products. The best in FSX simulation. 

 

As for the answer, the search button helps alot, but in short, PMDG will not implement any kind of weather radar even though others seemingly do. This is because it cannot be simulated properly as FSX cant really detect rain very well with a radar.

Here is a good example of a normal answer. I understand how I was silly not to search it up but you don't find answers without questioning.

Yes what you would call a normal answer but you have to understand this topic has been beaten to death. dozens of threads in the last couple months alone. Every aircraft release its beaten again. Save yourself the pain of feeling attacked and search first. With this topic and a few others you don't even have to use the search function. They are on every page of the PMDG forums.

Glad to see I'm not the only one who does that! It's so much less effort

It amazes me how badly you treat new pilots who ask legitimate questions.  Shame on you.  You call yourselves Captains.

Is there a way to get the weather radar working.

On a similar note how do I get the EFB in the pmdg 777 to work? ::runs and hides::

While we are at it, a few other topics to not ask about as well as some things to avoid:

 

Is PMDG going to make an airbus?

Why hasn't PMDG made an airbus?

747V2 release date

Any aircraft release date

"Pre Buying" of any aircraft

Rain effects in the VC

Arbitrary animations in the cockpit like opening windows, shade, cockpit door etc.

EFB in the T7

"But CS did XYZ on their airplane..."

Comparing in any way shape or form CS products with PMDG products

Something doesn't work on the NGX/T7 like "I" THINK it should work so it must be a bug

I'm having XYZ problem with the NGX/T7... "Did you read the manuals?" No. "Read the manuals"

Not reading the manuals

Assuming the NGX and T7, while both Boeing aircraft, are in any way alike in their systems, handling, or FMSs

Asking questions before doing a generalized search to see if there was possibly another topic on it

 

 

These are just a few I can think of off the top of my head, I'm sure there are more. This is in no way giving you a hard time, or being ugly. While true, it is actually meant to be funny. Incidentally, I'm confused why PMDG hasn't sticky'd a FAQ thread with all these questions and more plus their "official" answers to them. Then we could say..."read the FAQ before you post anything".

Wut.

Just trying to explain why people asking the same questions hundreds of times will feel attacked. Short answer, search the forum.

Nope, don't call myself Captain. Then again what would that have to do with people starting the same threads over and over? We should hold their hands and help them when they won't help themselves?
