MCE And PMDG 737 NGX

Recommended Posts

When the FO enters the fuel quantity, is it possible to get him to use the CDU on the right instead of the left.

I use the CDU left to setup my flight, when thefuel truck turns up and fuel qty is requested, the FO uses the left CDU instead of the Right CDU and interrupts my input.

Minor inconvenience, but can it be fixed ?. Also from a realism point it will be good.

This works for ground connection where  the FO uses the CDU on the right.

OK, give us some time to check it. It can be implemented that way.

Right now, Fo is only supposed to use your CDU when he detects aircraft isn't fully powered (say on battery). Ideally should use his own.

Thanks mate, that will be awesome.

I was going to get your latest update this weekend, but will wait for this fix now to make it to your next build before I download.

Hi Gerald - installed the downloaded file in the path you specified.

Did not fix the issue.

The FO is still using the LEFT CDU for fuel input.

He does use the left CDU when you're on battery and uses the right side one when on APU.

Were you on APU or Ground power?

My mistake. Forgot to send you the updated "mce.exe" and a couple of other files.

Download this file

Unzip and manually replace files as per folder structure.

No joy Gerald

I placed the files.

Now what happens is...

The FO enters the fuel qty in Left CDU then stops there, doesn't press the fuel LSK in the CDU.

At least earlier he was completing the fuel entry but in the left CDU.

Apologies. There was a mistake indeed.

This patch should get you going. Only need to replace "mce.exe", the other files are unchanged.

Also, extended the feature to PMDG 747 QOTS and PMDG 777 with fuel loading done on CDU 2
