Alt to cold and dark

Recommended Posts

What is the alt to cold and dark? Because taking over an ac isn't always cold and dark. How can i set my NGX up and FS2Crew to allow this to happen?

 

Cheers

Just select the Long or Short Panel state in the PMDG FMC.

 

To be realistic, you should always use either of them anyway.

 

If you're flying airline ops, you'd never receive the plane cold and dark.

He'll do the same flows, but make allowances based on your current power setup.

Should he be doing the same flows if you're not starting with cold and dark?

The flows are the same, but certain items in some of flows will be done slightly differently based on your current configuration.

Is it true if you select other than cold and dark you will get the SDK failed?

So how come the FO is still switching on GRD PWR after i've selected long panel state on my NGX and the ground power is already on?

That's not true.

Which power selection are you selecting on the CFG panel?

Is there anychance we can have access to what the FO does for the flow when not selecting cold and dark? Cheers

You need to explain a little bit more? Right now i've just selected the short panel state and the APU is running.

 

I set the config panel to APU/EXT is this correct?
