Pmdg 777 fmc buttons not responding to mouse

Recommended Posts

Hi can someone help I am running prepar3d vs 3 with a pmdg 777 all recently have been working correctly until today. when trying to press any of the fmc keys it does not respond to the mouse however everything else in the cockpit does respond flaps , mpc , trim all work . I am also running saitek x52 joystick again with no issues. It's all a bit strange I have reinstalled my pmdg 777 to see if this sorts the problem but to no avail any help with this would be much appreciated.

Thanks Mitch

Are you clicking on the virtual cockpit FMC or on the pop-up FMC? Could you try the pop-up window (shift + 4, I think, or click on top of the FMC screen so it pops-up) and see if that works?

I know this will sound weird, but are you too far "back?" If the camera is placed too far back, it goes into the virtual headrest. This "blocks" the FMC because the game thinks you're inside the headrest.

Reinstalls rarely ever fix anything, so you're better off either actually troubleshooting, or reaching out for support.

 

Did you read the file that came with the installer that says "Prepar3D USERS READ THIS"?

Thankyou to everyone's suggestions after a day of uninstalling and re installing prepar 3D and my pmdg 777 I now have full control of my fmc

Kind regards Mitch

I have pondered for the longest time why developers don't give an option to remove the captain's seat back...maybe a mouse click somewhere.  This issue has come up so many times for so many aircraft.

I have the same FMC problem with FSX Acceleration. Flight plan LGIO rwy 32 to LGKR rwy 35 then after opening FMC and after setup the DEP/ARR Index I go to LEGS. From LEGS I want to move a waypoint but no responses. Tried again after deleting ARPT_RWY.dat file and still. Everything works from FMC except not allowed even to change runway from D/A Index. I think T7 needs updates?

Tried again and still. But it became weird. After finished the FMC setup I noticed that I didn't entered the Departure runway. So, I entered the runway number and FSX closed without any messages. Maybe the Windows 10 Fall Creators is interfering. Also, very usual the FSX message "Error Creating Child Window" then it crushes. Something going on with T7.
