Refuses to start/open

Recommended Posts

I Have had fscrew for PMDG's 747 for just over a week now and it just refuses to start.Or should I say the main interface window refuses to open !

I have checked the config manager to enure all systems read ok, which they do.

I have tried start P3D 4.1 in various ways to see if starting with a default aircraft will help, but nope it makes no difference if i start P3D with the PMDG 747 or with a Piper cub and then change.

Neither does it make any difference if I start Fscrew before starting P3D 

I have tried re-assigning different buttons but nope it still doesn't start.

I am at a loss here as to what the heck to do..

Hi Phil,

Send me a support ticket via: www.fs2crew.com

But first just try re-installing the aircraft and FS2Crew.  That will probably solve it.

Best,

Hi Bryan, got this sorted at long last.

Re-installing aircraft and FSCrew did nothing to help sort the problem out, but then a brain wave struck. It occurred to me that I was setting up the PMDG 747 before starting FSCrew and therefore in getting the panel set up to follow the FSCrew tutorials I was selecting the long panel state and once everything had settled down I tried to start FSCrew.

Once I stopped this and started FSCrew before selecting the panel state everything was ok. I know it has been well documented about not starting with a saved panel state, but thought it referred to those I might set up and save myself, not those already offered as part of the PMDG package.

Oh well live and learn as they say !!

Hi Phil,

Glad you got it sorted.

Yes, generally speaking, using saved panel states is not a good idea.

What I do:

1. Load the 747 in its stock way.

2. Load PMDG Panel State Files (Cold, Short, Long).

3. Open FS2Crew Panel.

That's what I was doing in the beginning, buy FSCrew would not start up.

So now I start PMDG in its default state with engines running, then start FSCrew and only then select the required panel state.

Works fine, every time, so far !!
