  1. I'm so bummed. After a two year break I'm back at FSX harder than ever, and was all set to install this great new tool I heard about from Steve... DX 10 Fixer, and its no longer available! Are there any alternatives so that we can fix the DX 10 issues his tool took care of? I'm getting incredible frame rates with DX10 but the flashing and other issues are killing me :-( Hoping there's something else out there to do what his tool did. I can't believe we can't get it anymore. Gavin

    FMC video

    Here's the ALTAVISTA/Babelfish translatino :)Hello, and welcome aboard Boeing 737NG. This tutorial will help you in the comprehension of the various systems of the plane as well as the communications between the various speakers, namely, the tower, the approach and control. We will not have to make communication with the ground in this exercise. We see in this moment the outside of the apparatus and we are on the air of parking n

    While we all wait for the 747...

    WestCoast ATC (www.westcoastatc.com) had PMDG specifid flights often, and has almost DAILY flights with FULL atc, using stricktly FS9 Multiplayer and Teamspeak.In my opinion it's the easiest, yet most realistic online flying with ATC out there.

    FMC Stays in ctuise mode during decent

    Sheesh! You're right.Why was I under the impression CRZ changed to DEC on the EICAS? Kinda makes sense that it WOULD though, doesn't it?Gavinhttp://www.interprom.com/gavhttp://www.precisionmanuals.com/images/forum/800driver.jpgSpellink doesn't count!!
  5. Since the 800/900 upgrade, I find that the FMC doesn't switch form CRZ to DECENT mode on the panel.The decent is commanded at TOD, and flies the path fine, but the display continues to display CRZ.Is this something I mihgt be doing wrong?Gavinhttp://www.interprom.com/gavhttp://www.precisionmanuals.com/images/forum/800driver.jpgSpellink doesn't count!!

    Flying a radial outbound

    I was flying LNAV when ATC instructed me to track radial 055 once crossing the next VOR in the flight plan.I already had the ILS tuned into VOR1 as I was only a few miles from the airport.How should I have come off LNAV and instead tracked the 055 radial outbound using NAV2 or the FMC?I just used heading mode and hoped the winds would die down ;)Gavinhttp://www.interprom.com/gavhttp://www.precisionmanuals.com/images/forum/800driver.jpgSpellink doesn't count!!

  10. If, for whatever reason, I have had to descend in level change mode before the FMC has switched to descent mode, I've noticed the FMC stays in cruise.Is there a way to "force" the FMC to enter descent mode and take over the descent profile again after leaving VNAV and descending manually or with Level Change?Gavinhttp://www.interprom.com/gavhttp://www.precisionmanuals.com/images/forum/800driver.jpgSpellink doesn't count!!
  11. For those of us who want to be as "real as FS gets" ;), can anybody post some realisitic LOAD coimbinations for the 6/7/8/900 aircraft?I'm just GUESSING when I go into the load manager and setting number od PAX and cargo weight. MOre realistic figures, or a guideline to ereach them would be awesome!Thanks,Gavinhttp://www.interprom.com/gavhttp://www.precisionmanuals.com/images/forum/800driver.jpgSpellink doesn't count!!

    When to choose STAR

    Thanks Vulcan! Thats EXACTLY why I posted the questoin.I figured SADDE SIX was the only obvious STAR to plan - but runway 6L was in use. Going from the end of the STAR to 6L won't work.In the real workd - would SADDE SIX have even been concidered when planning?Gavinhttp://www.interprom.com/gavhttp://www.precisionmanuals.com/images/forum/800driver.jpgSpellink doesn't count!!
