NGX P3D FMC stuck on

Recommended Posts

Pretty simple issue. in the cold and dark state, the FMC is stuck powered on and wont turn off. It's not a major immersion breaker, but a little odd since I like starting flights cold and the screen is on and functional but shouldnt be. I cannot click and hold the menu button to see if that fixes it because P3D doesn't seem to have the ability to do that.

In the introduction manual on page 0.00.43 it does mention that you should be able to press and hold the "menu" button to turn on the CDU to access the FMS menus. It also says that you can turn it off the same way, by pressing and holding the "menu" button. But, in my experience turning it off this way has never worked, and still doesn't in SP1d.

 

For my CLDDRK panel state what I did was open the (panelstate).sav file in a text editor, search for the word "virtual", There is a line "VirtualMenuPower=1" (I think). Change the 1 to a 0 and when you load that state the CDU will be dark.
