Preflight checklist issue

Recommended Posts

Performing the preflight checklist using SOP1 and voice control. PMDG 737-800 with the modern fuel cutoff levers.

Last question - "Engine Start Levers" - I answer Cutoff - and I get the annoying "Are you sure?"

If I proceed with FS2Crew handling the engine start - I am unable to start engine 1 and the timing on starting engine 2 is screwed up.  Oh - I use the "2 then 1" sequence.

Is this going to be corrected?  I remember it from the original NGX on the 737-800 but not the other version -600 -700 or -900.

Works as per on the Button Version for me. Only thing I have to do is physically throw the Start Switches as per engine.

Odd - I'm also using SOP1 voice and have not received that response.

I know an intermittent problem is the hardest to solve, but I was hoping Bryan had this one figured out.

I can't reproduce this.  And I've tested using the modern style fuel switch panel.

All I can think of is this as an area to look at:

Answer: You have a button or hardware lever assigned to the FS "MIXTURE CONTROL" command/event.  Delete that.  FS2Crew reads the position of MIXTURE CONTROL to determine the position of the Start Levers.

Thanks Bryan,

I did have a few mixture settings assigned via p3d.  Deleted all of them.

did a quick test = the dreaded "Are you sure?" was not heard.

THANKS.
