Most likely you have configured the NGX to use the FSX LOC CRS.

 

Update the scenery and  magvar table.

In one of the pmdg options menus in the fmc make sure that the option about confirming headings to fsx or something similar is not enabled. Also isn't there a v3 of the navdata are you using the latest update?

Thank you all for replying to me!

 

 


Update the scenery and magvar table

I have performed this afternoon Hervé Sors Magnetic Variation Update

.

 

 


Also SunSkyJet have a free KPHL. It's not as friendly fps wise as default but give it a try!

I've downloaded scenery KPHL, and also installed, beautiful scenery.
But Heading on runway now is 268 degree

In one of the pmdg options menus in the fmc make sure that the option about confirming headings to fsx or something similar is not enabled.

CORRECT LOC CRS TO FSX = OFF now, before it was ON!

Is this what you mean? I have not been trying it!

Also isn't there a v3 of the navdata are you using the latest update?

I've installed Herve Sors FSX/P3D Navaids latest update 1603?

 

Now, after making all the changes I've made the trip again.

Landing on runway 27L looking good for me now!!

 

Because an error appeared during the landing and just for the runway i've to try again.

Hello Jaap,

 

The 777 generates it's own data file located in the PMDG/NAVDATA folder called ARPT_RWY.dat.

 

With the sim closed backup and delete this file. Run makerwys.exe whilst your at it, then try the flight again, the 777 will regenerate ARPT_RWY.dat file.

 

If I get chance I'll test the route myself.

Not sure why you would be using that for this issue.

 

The SunSkyJet scenery has a runway heading of 255, the mag var is -10deg giving the 265 front-course. The ILS of 27L is setup for the same.

 

The Navigraph AIRAC has the correct 265 entry.

 

It's possible the ARPT_RWY.dat file which should automatically update on scenery change has not done so and contains the 267 heading that your seeing.

Run makerwys.exe whilst your at it, then try the flight again, the 777 will regenerate ARPT_RWY.dat file.

First i've renamed ARPT_RWY.dat in ARPT_RWY.dat.bak

 

Then i tryed to find "MakeRwys.exe" and then i came to "AF_cleanner.exe"

 

It is sufficient to simply rename, then FSX and PMDG 777-200LR / F to boot, so that a new "ARPT_RWY.dat" file is placed?

That should be sufficient to update the file according to scenery/airac.

 

Makerwys is used by the inbuilt RAAS, it should be located and run the flightsim root folder, the latest version available from Pete Dowson

 

Makerwys.exe should be run after any scenery update.

Hello Stephen, here the result during approach 27L. Strange, the heading of the plane is still 267 degree?

FSX-SE map

Before the flight i've updated AirAc 1603 again.

 

Maybe i've to place the "magnetic variation updated by Herve Sors" again as well?

If you compare your initial NAV radio entry of course 267 to your last having applied the mag-var update you'll see it is now correct at 265.

 

You need to check for AFCAD conflicts, possibly with incorrect information.
