QW 787 FAQs and QUICK HELP

Recommended Posts

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!
If it doesn't work, you probably have a write permission issue.  See the section further down on how to manually add the FS2Crew entries to your panel.cfg file.

***USE THE LEFT (CAPTAIN'S SIDE) FMC ONLY TO ENABLE FS2CREW***

 

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').


Problem: How to add FS2Crew manually to the Panel.cfg file:

Solution:

Please add the following entries to the "800" model panel.cfg file.  

These entries are for P3D V4 and V5 only.  They will not work in FSX.

You can open it in Notepad.  The file should be located here:

SimObjects\Airplanes\QualityWings 787-8\panel\panel.cfg

***In [Window Titles] add this... make sure the Window Numbers are in sequence.

Window09=FS2Crew Main Panel
Window10=FS2Crew Secondary Panel
Window11=FS2Crew Panel Switcher

 

 

***Then below WINDOW 8, add this:

I deleted my FS2Crew for QW788 and reloaded that new update version. Then I went inside one of the QW788 and opened the proper location to enable from the left FMS but it was not there. I added inside the panel cfg the windows and saved it and reload the B788 and it was still not there for enable. 

Any help will be appreciated.

Thank you,

Al

Are you using P3D?


Please this thread:

Make sure you're adding the panel.cfg entries exactly:

Sorry I forgot to mentioned that I did indeed rehinstalled FS2Crew but still not there?

Al

Ensure your anti-virus is excluding the P3D folder.  You're anti virus may have nuked our gauge file.

The aircraft is checking for the existance of FS2Crew by looking for this file:

C:\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D XX\gauges\FS2Crew787QW64.dll

 

If you're using FSX, it would look for:

FS2Crew787QW32.dll

When you install FS2Crew, make sure the installer auto detects the correct location of your P3D/FSX main folder

You can't install it anywhere else.

During before start check list, with button control interface, PNF report V1, VR and V2 as "zero, zero, zero", when CDU competed properly and all T/O speeds indicated. What can be wrong with procedures. Thanks in advance.
