QW 787 FAQs and QUICK HELP

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Problem: Where are the manuals?

Solution: 

http://www.support.fs2crew.com/help/manuals/#pageid=quality_wings_787

Please read the manuals!

Everything you need is in the manuals 🙂

 

Problem: Where is the FS2Crew Config Manager to enable FS2Crew?

Solution: 

Unlike other FS2Crew's, this version of FS2Crew does not use a stand-alone Config Manager.  You need to "enable" FS2Crew via the 787's LEFT FMC, not the right one.

This is how the FS2Crew entries get added to the 787's panel.cfg file.

After you've done that, you need to shutdown FSX/ P3D, then re-load FSX/P3D for the changes to take effect.

This procedure is documented in the manuals!

Problem: The FS2Crew FO is not controlling the aircraft or Electronic Checklist properly.

Solution: 

You must have Service Pack 3 or Later for the QW 787 installed.  SP3 was released on 20 May 2020.

Please make sure your 787 always has the latest updates from QualityWings!  

 

Problem: FS2Crew disappeared off my 787.

Solution: 

You may need to re-enable FS2Crew again if you changed or starting using a different panel.cfg.  Multiple different versions of the panel.cfg are available, and when you "enable" FS2Crew, only the current panel.cfg that the sim would load would be modified.

So run the "enable" process again.

 

Problem: How do I open the FS2Crew Main Panel?

Solution: 

Same as the other FS2Crew's!  Assign a key or joystick button to AUTOFEATHER ARM/OFF in the P3D/FSX controls menu.  We recommend the N key.

 

Problem: My frames rates have dropped!

Solution: 

It's not FS2Crew!  It appears to be an issue with the QW 787's Navigraph Charts.

 

Problem: The FO is ticking the ECL incorrectly.

Solution: 

Don't move your mouse around the cockpit while the FO is running the checklist.  It can mess up the ECL (note the purple bar over the checklist item when you mouse over it... the ECL is 'mouse sensitive').
