    Working B777 Freeware?

    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

    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

    Working B777 Freeware?

    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

    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

    Account Activation

    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.

    Account Activation

    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

    Finally! DC-8 For FSX!

    I had the same problem, but I was using IE10. If I worked my down through the menu selections for Products, only the Addon Livery Pack came up. Eventually, using other search options I found it.

    Just out of interest Dave, I have the Wings of Power Heavy Bombers working in FSX too. If you go to the A2A Forums, they have info for how to port them across. The Lanc VC looks a bit worse (even) than in FS9, but the other bombers are pretty good in FSX. Just in case. ^_^ Cheers, Warren

    I have the Wings of Power (A2A) version that was included in the Wings of Power Heavy Bombers pack. It is very good, but unfortunately not available from A2A any more. Maybe you can track down a copy via EBay or similar. http://www.google.com.au/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=2&cad=rja&sqi=2&ved=0CC4QFjAB&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.a2asimulations.com%2Fstore%2Fwop_retail%2F&ei=FcTdUrrzGPGziQfSh4HgCA&usg=AFQjCNFmgt0YqwYq8VXTaooqLdBgtljSOQ&sig2=mVRpFdorLtf1gMkvYMrrbA

    Dreamfleet 727 and Windows 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

    Dreamfleet 727 and Windows 7

    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

    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

    Next PMDG plane, Boeing 727 ?

    Glad I kept reading this thread now. That is the news I have been hoping for, for a long time. I currently keep my FS2004 almost solely for my DF 727, still a great aircraft. I'd be perfectly happy with a DF quality 727 for FSX. It's pretty clear that PMDG won't consider it, so a DF (Paul Golding) version would be an ideal substitute for me. I really hope this happens Paul. Thanks.
  15. 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?).
