PSS 757 (cold & dark) question

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know if there is a way to set which switches in the overhead panel are on or off in the Cold & Dark setup? I still have one or two miscellaneous switches that are on and I would rather they were off when I choose a cold and dark cockpit - Isolation Bleed Switch for example.

 

I did set things up via a saved flight with all the parameters as I want them, and that certainly works, but loading the PSS 757 via a saved flight always (as far as my experiments have shown) knobbles the COM1 radio - unless you load the default Cessna first, turn on Battery and Avionics, then load whichever 757 you are flying directly from the FS9 menu, the COM1 radio dial is stuck and the radios cannot be tuned. Loading any kind of saved flight for the PSS 757 (*.flt) kills the COM1 radio, as far as I can tell.

 

Seems I can either have the radio working or accept a few switches lit up and on at start-up. If I could somehow define the Cold & Dark start directly, without using a saved flight to load the long list of PSS panel parameters, that might well do it, but how? There's a PanelConfig.dat file in the FS9/PSS/757 folder, but I don't understand the terminology there (like this),

Control44VKey=0
Control44Modifiers=0
Control45VKey=0
Control45Modifiers=0
Control46VKey=72
Control46Modifiers=2
Control47VKey=0
Control47Modifiers=0
Control48VKey=0
Control48Modifiers=0

so I haven't touched it!

 

Thanks.

.. the code above is for the keyboard shortcuts, I can see now. Still can't find where the cold/dark info is stored - may be hard coded.

I think your PanelConfig.dat is incomplete, mine looks like this:

 I didn't post the whole file, just an extract to show the code: I should have said, sorry!

No problem. The last PSS plane I used in FS9/Windows 7 x64 was the Dash 8 Q300, and you have to start that with the default 172 as well. Because the PSS planes were 'ported over' from FS2002 quite early on, there is some vital (magneto?) code missing which would allow a true cold and dark startup in FS2004.

It's only a couple of things that start up ready and lit up, so it's no big deal, it's just that it would be good, from a satisfaction point of view, to be able to 'fix' it!
