Service Pack 1C

Recommended Posts

Hi guys

 

Long time unsent from these columns due to sickness but I am back.

 

Now I have installed the Service Pack 1C for my PMDG 777 and I have noticed that the operation of the FMC has changed a bit.

Is there a write up somewhere or a video of how the FMC should work now after the Service Pack 1C?

 

Also I have noticed that before the service pack, when the autopilot was disengaged you could silence the buzzer sound by pressing  CTRL SHIFT Z  Now since the service Pack this doesn't work.

 

Thanks

Stelios

Many months of testing and I did not know that... always right clicked the screw twice about 1.5 s or more apart.

 

Note the Introduction  document was updated for changes in SP1.. you'll find a lot of information there so it is a good place to start.

 

Stay healthy!

It was the service pack in general that changed that. SP1b and SP1c don't have any radical changes to the FMC. The changes are noted in the intro manual, where one would expect a digest of information like that.

My guess is that you just need to go back into your key commands and set the command for AP DISCONNECT again.

In the start menu I have 2 documents 1. PMDG 777 Introduction and 2. PMDG 777 Tutorial 1

Nothing on the SP1C

You might try checking the PMDG Operations Center. Even after I installed SP1c, there were still updates there for the -200 and -300.

Yep, the intro doc has been updated by SP1c, but still no SP1c changelog is mentioned (except for Robert's topic in this forum).

 

True but in my introduction manual the changes are hightlighted in green saying  the changes  that were made( in green it  says new to sp1  after  any paragraph   that have changes  to it)

So why then PMDG does not have a link in their site for people to read it? Anyone from PMDG here?

Because the documentation (introduction manual)  can be found in 3  places on your pc,   operation centre,  your start menu  and  your fsx/pmdg777  on where you got your t7  installed on your drive under documentation

Just for those who seem confused about things here, I want to clear it up (despite Stelios noting that he's found what he's looking for):

 

The changes to the FMC and many of the visible changes in the sim came from SP1. SPs 1b and 1c do not have very visible updates (updates to fix the accel wandering, FBW, etc.). All of the stuff in the intro doc that has been there since SP1 covers everything you need. You do not need to look for anything referring to SP1c, specifically. These updates begin on page 153.

The changelog can be found in the Operations Center. Select version information and then a 'view changelog' icon appears. It lists all changes since release.

Thanks, Kevin. The OC downloads the changelog "on user's request" as you described. The log doesn't seem to get stored on my PC. I copied the text and saved it to a wordpad file in my T7 documentation folder.

Exactly what I did.

FWIW, I believe the Change Log is actually already stored in the text files in the PMDG > [individual Aircraft Folder] in the same file as the EULA.
