  1. Hi Dirk, The easiest way I find to bring up the FMS is to hit "Shift +9" (9 on the top row of numbers, not the keypad). It brings up a row of icons, the FMC is the left one. If it doesn't come up with the VC, try it with the 2D panel. You can probably find it under the views/cockpit options along the top too. I keep the icon row showing when flying, makes it easy to access all of the sub-panels, especially when flying with the VC. Warren
  2. If you look under My Documents folder, you should find a folder named "Rikoooo Add-ons/Boeing 777-200ER Ultimate Pack/fmc docs". There are three files there to help. Warren
  3. Thanks Dave and Matt, I finally found the problem. I'm using FSX-SE and therefore I selected the FSX-SE option in the installer, so it created a new folder called FSX-SE and put the edit for the dll.xml in that folder. My default dll.xml is actually in a FSX named folder. So, after re-installing and choosing FSX (who would have thought?) as my default flightsim folder, it edited the dll.xml correctly. All seems to be working now, but not thoroughly tested it yet. Cheers guys, Warren
  4. I notice my FMC doesn't seem to be working fully either. I've read about the needed edits to the dll.xml (and maybe fonts needed too) but I don't think my installer has done this. Can you please point me towards the required edits? Warren
  5. I've also submitted a ticket now, since I still haven't received the email after two days. Warren EDIT: My account was activated almost immediately after submitting the ticket. Thanks.
  6. I'm having the exact same problem as Rich. Tried to register about an hour ago, and not receiving the activation Email. I also tried re-registering again, same result as Rich. I've decided to just wait until tomorrow and see if there may be a delay in their process. Warren
  7. Still not much help for you Harald, but you got me interested enough to try a few more things. I tried substituting the default B737 kneeboard files into the DF727, but still crashed FS9. So it's not the format of the DF727 checklists etc. Tried Windows mode and Full screen, still crashes. I then tried running in Windowed mode, but I opened the kneeboard files from the File manager. They open as expected in a separate window, but of course FS9 pauses while that window is open. You can then return to the FS9 window and it continues running. Not sure what that is telling us, but it seems that the way the kneeboard runs from within the DF727 is causing a conflict. So, I suppose if you really wanted to have the kneeboard checklists etc available during a flight, it can be worked around by running windowed and opening them separately, or transferring them to a second monitor, but that is very messy. Pity, but at least the DF727 still flies nicely without the kneeboard items, so best to remove them, I think, to prevent accidently freezing FS9. Or, maybe someone else here is able to run it with the kneeboards and can enlighten us further. Cheers, Warren
  8. No Harald, I'm using NV GTX480. I also don't use any special enhancer programs, it's a pretty basic FS9 setup. I also have no similar problems with other aircraft, it's specific to the DF727. I'm pretty sure it used to work ok when I had Win XP as my OS, but now I'm using Win 7 64. Warren
  9. Hi Harald, This is probably no help but: I tried my DF727 to test the Kneeboard (haven't usually used them) and indeed I get the same problem. PC freezes and can only be unlocked by using Task Manager. I tried using a different key assignment (desperate hey) but problem remains. I tried just accessing the Kneeboard via the windows menu, same problem. I tried using Firefox and Google Chrome instead of IE11, same problem. So, I couldn't solve it either. Only person I can think to get help from is Paul Golding who often posts here at Avsims. Cheers, Warren
  10. Very nice to read a positive review of this Aircraft, loooong but well written, and most helpful. The only slight frustration is reading about people enjoying the "Extended" version, but it is not available to the general public (yet?).
  11. I found post this rather interesting, as I too made the same decision regarding Computer Pilot, and for the exact same reasons, about a month ago. I really enjoyed the Mag but of late, I have found little of interest now that it has moved to FSX. It's not their fault, but I haven't made the move to FSX, and don't plan to at this stage. I'm also a long time subscriber to PC Pilot, and decided to continue with it as my only Flight Sim mag now. Thanks to Avsim though for maintaining the interest with FS2004.
  12. Greg, Yes, I did read your post (several times). I'll try to explain my thoughts again because I still don't fully understand the problem. Since you have said that the problem also occurs with the default Cessna, it is not aircraft related, so I tried to concentrate on the problem using the Cessna just to eliminate one variable (the Concorde). When you say that the "ILS won't work", do you mean that 1. It won't show up on the VOR when tuned to the ILS frequency?2. The aircraft won't turn towards the ILS beam when intercepting the ILS?3. The aircraft won't follow the glidescope?With regard to the AFCAD's, I am not surprised that you don't have any AFCAD files in the Addon Scenery folder. The only AFCAD's in there would belong to Addon Sceneries. Since you have re-installed FS9 twice, I assume you should only have the default airports and default AFCAD's. It is highly unlikely that you have any faults with the default AFCAD's after two re installs.It really looks (to me) like an operational issue, but if you could explain in more detail what you are doing when the problem occurs, and what you see (or don't see), it would be really helpful in trying to help further.Warren
  13. Hi Greg and Ray, Hope you don't mind me jumping into this post, but it has me interested (as a new owner of the Concorde but not yet experienced enough to help much) since a fellow Aussie is having problems (I'm guessing an Aussie based on the sig). I'm not sure what Greg means by "the ILS doesn't come up" but I tried out KJFK ILS 31L (the one mentioned by Greg) using the default Cessna. I also only use the default AFCAD. Initially I could intercept the ILS ok but had quite a lot of difficulty locking onto the glidescope. After many loops I found I had to approach from quite a distance out, be very stable on the ILS beam, and very low to make sure I picked up the glidescope from below. In fact I found I needed to be at about 1400 ft to lock the glidescope. So, I was wondering if Greg means that he can't pick up the glidescope, or does he not even lock onto the ILS? If this is the problem, I know that many of the payware aircraft (including most PSS ones) pick up the ILS and glidescope very aggressively but the default aircraft can be much more hit and miss (especially if not below glidescope and not tightly on the ILS beam. This may be a complete red herring, but thought I would throw it in. Again, it might be helpful if Greg could explain further what he means by "ILS doesn't come up". Cheers,Warren
  14. Carl, Just checked mine and can confirm that these switches do not work. I'm pretty sure that it is not designed to include this detail in the panel.Warren
  15. I'm slowly working my way through many of the options provided by this great program. I have a question re the little pop up entry screen, where you input your revised destination code (during flight). Does this show up in full screen mode? I find that I have to hit alt+enter and reduce to windows mode to find it. Is this normal or do I have something configured wrong?Warren
