paper is  that you have to tick the checklist  your self or if you select electronic  the fo will tick each one  as you do the pre flight checks etc

Actually with "paper checklists" you wouldn't even use the ECL...

 

You'd probably only use them in real life if the ECL failed somehow.

One suggestion Bryan, is it posible to chose to open or not the pop up window when doing the checklist, I use EZDOK and I have a special view for ECL, and it's annoying when FO opens the pop up window for the checklist

We have to have the window pop-up.  The FO is applying simulated mouse clicks to the window.

 

We're actually lucky we could even do this as the SDK offers no control over the ECL.

Ok I see... You're right when you say we're lucky! It's a huge step forward in realism. thanks for your reply.

A shame about the popup, but I understand the limitation, I cant stand the ECL popup during flows, I reverted back to paper checklist. No big deal, still enjoying the product very much!

Regards,

John.

Was hoping that the popup could be stopped, would have been much better as it sometimes seem to interfere with some of my actions.

Well nevertheless nothing could be done im sure will get used to it after a few flights :D

The pop-up is only there for the duration of the checklist, which is very, very short, a matter of seconds usually.

Maybe I'm doing something wrong but I can't close the pop up after it shows up. It shows up when I start the preflight checklist. Fo is doing nothing with it and it's not possible to close it again.

The FO closes the Pop-up each time with mine, not sure why others arent. Truthfully it doesnt bother me one bit!

Is this the reason why I can't control the R inboard display?

 

Probably not.

Probably not.

 

Well, the R INBD control stopped responding after I installed FS2Crew and was working fine before that, I use it every flight.

You mean you can't select the panel or you can open the zoomed panel?

 

Can you control R INBD prior to opening the FS2Crew Panel?

I just can't select it.  I click the button but it does nothing - no control and no indicator light.  R INBD and LWR CTR work just fine and light up. I'll try before opening the panel when I get home.

Something similar happened to me on my second flight. I was on the Approach checklists and I stated my altimeter as per checklist, but the the FO went on to Decent checklist items and stopped. I repeatedly restarted the checklists and it still did the same thing. When I opted to skip the approach checks, I could not get the window to close for the duration of the flight. I thought that strange.

Can you send me your speech log.j.. the CVR log is available via the FS2Crew 777 Config Manager.

 

I need to see how you're doing that... I need to know exactly what you're saying.
