Flying 300ER with FSINN

Recommended Posts

Recently I am facing the problem of flying 300er with fsinn online. I know that here is the place of many people flying online with pmdg 777-300er so I would like to ask the question here.

 

We all know that 777-300er should be "B77W" and 200lr should be "B77L", altough many people on Vatsim still register their aircraft as B772 and B773 wrongly. However, when I tried to register my 300er as "B77W", the box immediately turned red which means "B77W" cannot be identified by fsinn. On the other hand, if I type "B773" or "B772", there will not be any problem of identification of the aircraft.

 

So I want to ask you guys that which code, B77W or B773, should I type into FSINN when using 777-300ER. I want every people on vatsim can correctly see my plane (not any plane like cessna to replace my original 300er aircraft or displaying ZZZZ), also I want that I can display other people' 777-300er correctly if they register as "B77W"

I have been able to change it in FSInn.  I think you need to go into the ICAO text file and add the line

 

77W 773

 

 

This should actually fit it automatically but it does not so you need to then manually change it.  There is some dicussion on this on the Vatsim forums.

Altough I set ivao.cfg, the box still turned red when B77w is typed...

Maybe look at using vpilot? I've started using it seems to be an easier option.

 

I am also considering to use vPilot, but I have a few concerns.

 

  • Comparing quality of aircraft models, let's say both are matching with IVAO_MTL, is there any difference between using vPilot and using FSINN? Like dynamic lights, fluency of online aircraft movement.
  • Can vPilot correctly display B77W / B77L / B77F without extra settings?
  • Can vPilot connect bluetooth headset with microphone as input device?

Hi,

 

This is directly quoted from this thread which talks about setting FSINN up with the PMDG 777: http://forum.avsim.net/topic/419862-fsinn-settings-so-we-can-all-see-your-new-shiny-plane/

 

Please check other topics first before posting a new one ;)

 

You're ICAO.cfg should look as follows:

 

 

Tim, is this how it's supposed to look:
