PMDG 747-8 FMC freezing on Takeoff Perf

Recommended Posts

Besides the revere thrust problems, now I have an FMC problem. Whenever I enter the Takeoff Perf page, the captain's FMC freezes and when I also click FS Actions - Ground Connections I don't see any options there as in, its black. The captain's and FO's FMC also freezes on any page after the captain's FMC freezes on Takeoff Perf.

 

Any solutions??

 

Thanks

Full names in the forum, please - first and last.

As far as solutions. What other add-ons are you using? Are you using an old panel state?

I spawn as a cold and dark

If the plane is loading cold and dark, then you're using a panel state...

So the solution is to change the panel state?

Delete your panel states and try creating new ones.

Thank you, I just checked the panel states and I have "744" startup states, not 748 states. Is this normal?

Yes. They're compatible with both.

Have you deleted your panel states and tried to re-create them?

I removed the 744 Cold and Dark state and put the default one as the default. Should I change it back to Cold and dark??

Nope. As I asked: remove ALL panel states. Run the sim. Create your own new ones.

For what it's worth, you don't even need to save the new ones yet. Just remove the old ones, load into a flight, and try setting the flight up to see if the freeze issue goes away. It's either the panel state, or something else getting in the way.

How do I remove a panel state?

<sim folder>\PMDG\<aircraft folder>\PANELSTATE

Select all of them and delete them.

Whatever state is being loaded in the situations where you're having issues.

I removed the panel state and it keeps freezing. Something is wrong with the aircraft.

If this were the case, then everyone would be running into the problem.
