PMDG 777 - 200 loaded Cold and dark.... How to reset it to start with with all on?

Recommended Posts

I don';t know what I pressed on the FMC... now when I load the 777 200..its cold and dark. I don't want this status.. I want it like when I initially installed.. Ready to go.

 

What do I do to get that status? In cold and dark... I can't turn on the FMC/CDU to load an aircraft status.

 

My 777-300 is ok.

 

Short of reinstalling the PMDG 777.. what do can I do?

PMDG have a panel state in the FMC. In fact there are two - 'long' which is a state with ground power connected and 'short' which is running off the APU. Cold and dark is almost unknown for a 777 pilot to experience. Our 777 guy has only ever started one from cold and dark once and that was when the Captain hit the ground power switches to off before the APU was running! Apparently in the real one that causes a lot of the systems on board to crash and is a real headache to resolve.

The only time to use C&D is if your using the 777F

 

Long imo is the right one for the 777 pax

cold and dark is required for my VA, i guess i could use long or short startup,i feel as if its more fun to complete the plane from cold and dark anyway,the 777 is one of the easiest to start cold and dark
