PMDG 737 NGX Update SP1D - possible issue with FS2Crew?

Recommended Posts

Hi Bryan,

 

Bryan, does having the latest NGX SP1D cause any issues with the current version of FS2Crew?

 

Reason I ask, is I received a warning message from FS2Crew PMDG 737 NGX Config Mgr when I opened it up after d/l and installing the updated NGX Base & Expansion to SP1D.

 

The warning message mentioned that I require SP1C and that I should obtain it?

Yes, that is a problem.  FS2Crew can now only click some buttons, but can't read the state of any switches.  I assume they are working towards a fix with their new "rebooted" edition.

I just installed SP1D.

 

SP1D causes many issues with FS2Crew.

 

If you want to use FS2Crew 737 NGX in its current form, do not install SP1D.

 

Stick with SP1C.

Give Byran some  time  to figure this out,  since  he just stated  that he has just installed  it himself, iam sure  once he has  fixed the issues  he will let  us know  when its ready.

ETA on "Reboot":  Asap.  I'm working on it full time.

 

However, I have to rely on other people to submit voices, and that's out of my control.

Too late for me, I already installed SP1d. I'll just wait for Bryan and the crew to get the reboot out.

Therefore I suppose that Emergency will not work, either. Bryan, are you also working on an Emergency update? Otherwise it is really a pity that it can no longer be used!

Yeah I will be getting Reboot but FS2Crew for NGX how long for an update to work with the NG? I've purchased both FS2Crew & Emergency and looking forward to having these working again...

It turns out I was wrong...

 

It seems based on user reports that FS2Crew NGX does indeed currently work with SP1D.

 

 

The only issue you may have is that you may get a warning about SP1C not being installed, but you can disregard that.

Thanks Bryan. I am installing the NGX SP1d on a new computer. Before I reinstall FS2Crew, are there FSX (not SE) users that can confirm that in fact it DOES work?

If it worked it would make my day (and my weekend)!

Thank you.

I got it working James, all I did was uninstall old NGX then install new NGX Installer

 

Then just run the FS2Crew Installer (in my case emergency ngx).

 

Once complete ran the FS2Crew icon which came up a warning about requiring 1C SP, I clicked ok then the enable voice button, closed it and then launched FSX and all is working fine :)

Thank you, Jonathon. I look forward to trying at home, tonight. Do you confirm you are talking about the Microsoft FSX version? Second question: did you also test if the emergencies work?

To get everything to work, you need to do a complete reinstall of FS2Crew?  When I ran mine (just reinstalling the panel cfgs) there was an SDK error and the copilot could not read the position of the switches.

You need to do more than just re-install the panel.cfg.

 

You need to manually add this to your 737NGX_Options.ini located in the PMDG -> PMDG 737 NGX folder.
 

[sDK]
EnableDataBroadcast=1
 
 
The FS2Crew installer would normally do that, but it will only do that in the Microsoft FSX version.

Ok, thanks, I am using the FSX version.  I will add it as soon as I can.

If you're using the FSX version, then the FS2Crew installer should have automatically added that line for you.

 

Your problem is probably something else, like using saved situation files or not having the cockpit load into the 2D cockpit by default.

Doing a testflight right now and I seem to have quite some issues with FS2CREW and SP1D (regular FSX version).

 

- SDK error as mentioned above

 

but also:

 

- Switches are set correctly but F/O still asking "are you sure about that" on the preflight/before start checklist (window heat, passenger signs, anti collision light, ...)

- Transition altitude/level not being taken into account and defaulting to 18000

- Descent checklist: autobrakes RTO instead of Level x announced

- F/O announcing altimeters in inch/hg when hpa should be announced

- On the briefing panel: minimums are set to RADIO when minimums knob on MCP is set to BARO. Not able to make it switch to BARO on the briefing panel.

 

just to name a few.

 

Will post back if I find more issues

 

Mathieu

 

 

edit: important note I didn't mention. I did NOT reinstall FS2CREW after uninstalling NGX SP1C and installing NGX SP1D. Maybe I should do that first...

I had the same problem until I did a complete uninstall and reinstall of fs2crew and emergency. Now it will read the panel coŕectly.

 

But now I have another problem. Whenever I get the load sheets the sim will crash hard! No response for minutes and the finaly an error message and fsx quits.

Bryan,

 

I'm pleased to report:

 

I've just completed a flight with SP1d and all went well. No reinstall of FS2Crew necessary.

 

Still get the warning message when opening the FS2Crew config mngr, but that's no big deal.
