Time compression analog clock

Recommended Posts

Did a search couldn't find what I need.

Doing the first 777 tutorial right now.  Following along with the manual.  It tells me to go to the CDU and I can  set it to 4x (which is default), from there.  Or right click the upper left button on the clock.

So I right clicked on the clock and after a few seconds it turned teal color and sped up.  With the CDU open to that page it shows it is ON in Green letters and across from it it shows 4x.

However, in the manual it says if you right click it again it will show red which means 4x.  If I right click it it turns red for a fraction of a second then goes back to amber which is normal time and the CDU reflects this by showing time compression as OFF next to the LSK.

So is teal 4X?  I don't want to go any faster than this but just want to know why it's not showing red as described in the tutorial.

Thanks.

Not necessarily, teal just means that auto time compression is enabled. The aircraft will accelerate time up to 4x and back to normal as it sees fit (it'll drop back for turns, turbulence etc).

But the tutorial said with another right click it would be red.  What am I doing incorrectly?

It is only red when there is a mismatch between the simulator and the setting.  So when you click on the toggle on/off to turn it off there might be a short period where it is red or there might not be.  If the simulator returns to x1 quickly then there is no red.

I am confused by the question.  Are you having trouble turning time compression on and off or is this just a question about the indications while doing so?

Please read the page in the manual.  Not to be rude and I'm sorry if I come across like that but it specifically says red = 4x.

So since it says that im not sure what compression factor it is.

The manual is quite clear about it.

I know this has to be a crazy question, but where did you find the clock?  The tutorial 1.0 says it is to the left of the PDF but all I have is blank space - no clock.  What am I missing?

the  answer is  simple   your  missing  the  clock   lol.  simple  solution is  to change  it  from  digital   to analog  in the cdu  also if  you would  have  read  the introduction manual  you would  have  found  your  answer as well,

Thank you Pete.  I read the intro manual, but guess I'd better read it again, before asking any more questions.  Thanks again.
