747 QOSII and Goflight MCP pro

Recommended Posts

If anyone has gotten this to work with the queen of the Skies 2 add-on, please let me know what you did.

My 737ngx works perfect, but the 747 QOSII does not communicate with the mCP Pro. The manual says the device is automatically configured.

hopefully someone out there knows what settings I need to change to make this to work with the 747.

My cockpit setup.

The GFIT tool above works fine with all the PMDG jets.

yes I know about Pollypot software. Without it, my ngx would not function. And I also have their latest version. It still does not work. My 737ngx configures perfectly. But I'm having no luck with the 747 version 3

Thank you for your suggestion

Just checking... Have you enabled the SDK broadcast option in the 744?

Thanks for your input.

Here is my 747QOTSII_Options file:

[IRU.0]
LastPosValid=0
[IRU.1]
LastPosValid=0
LastPosLatLon=N18°02.6 W063°06.8
[IRU.2]
LastPosValid=0
[SDK]
EnableDataBroadcast=1

 

Seems a little short compared to the  737 NGX file. Am I missing something here? I did not enter "EnableDataBroadcast=1" into the file, it was there when I opened it. 

Do you have more info on setting this option or a sample of your own file?   Thanks in advance, Larry

Larry,

The SDK shouldn'r be there by default. Also the options file is indeed missing entries. What you see is how it should be after the 744 is installed and never opened. Can you check if the file is read only for some reason?

Should I reinstall the 747? Not sure why there would be entries missing. I will reinstall tonight.

Do not reinstall. Reinstall usually makes think worse. Right clikc the options.ini and check if it is in Read Only.

Good thing I waited. Been busy at work and my simulator is in a room that's a bit hot. It's been between 107 and 110 degrees all week with 30 percent humidity (Las Vegas). 

I checked the "ini" folder, is is not read only, but the main folder "PMDG 747 QOTS II" is read only. Maybe this is the issue? I will wait for your reply before making changes.

It shouldn't be read only.

 

Another test you can make is move the options.ini from the PMDG folder to the desktop temporarly. Then start the sim and load the 744. When it load close it and check if a new one is created.

All my folders are read only.  I read on net that windows ignores the read only attribute in folders but recognizes the files within. If I do try to remove read only attribute, it turns back on. I am logged,admin of course.

I did remove ini folder, and it does create a new one, but with very little in it. see here:

[IRU.0]
LastPosValid=0
[IRU.1]
LastPosValid=0
[IRU.2]
LastPosValid=0
 

The goflight MCP only shows dashes within it. 737 NGX still works as it should. 

Here is the original ini folder I saved to desktop:

[IRU.0]
LastPosValid=0
[IRU.1]
LastPosValid=0
LastPosLatLon=N18°02.6 W063°06.8
[IRU.2]
LastPosValid=0
[SDK]
EnableDataBroadcast=1

I did add [SDK] "EnableDataBroadcast=1" to the bottom with no difference.

I  am baffled.

Is this after you have also loaded the 744 at least once? I can copy paste mine but since mine is based on an unreleased version if you try to use it can cause other issues.

Yes, I have loaded a flight (running, at gate), but have not pushed back/taxi or flown. I am concentrating on getting the MCP to work.

Willing to try anything at this point so posting your ini file might be worth a try. I can always delete it if problems occur.  Maybe an uninstall/reinstall could help(have not done that yet).

I was wrong about the main folder being "read only". Posted image show what I was looking at. There was no check mark in the properties box, only a blue highlight color. The ini file is not read only as it should be.

I really appreciate all the help you have given me Chris. I can't say enough!
