FO adding values rather than increasing

Recommended Posts

When climbing to cruise altitude I request changes to speed or altitude, but rather than changing the values the FO will add them together. Ex. autopilot was set for 7,000 feet and I receive clearance to 15,000. I request, set altitude flight level 150. Rather than setting the altitude to 15,000, it adds it to the existing value and it is set at 22,000. Is there a setting that is set incorrectly somewhere or is this a command problem(or is this a bug)? Thank you.

I have not experienced this issue before.

 

Can you tell us what sim you are using (FSX/XP/P3DV3.0/P3DV3.1?) ?

 

Also what aircraft and what version of MCE?

 

Cheers.

If Windows UAC is enabled (it is by default), and you can keep it that way, you must however.

 

1 - InstallMCE to default C:\Program Files (x86)\ folder

2 - Set "fsx.exe and/or Prepar3D.exe to run as admin.

 

Also, with PMDG aircraft, in general it's best to start aircraft first, let the initialization count down (green bar counter) go to zero before starting MCE.
