    ATT:RST Message

    One more question. Should all of the files be deleted, including those original files provided by PMDG ( Cold and Dark, Short Turn-Around, etc) ? Thanks again, Ken

    ATT:RST Message

    I understand Pete. And it makes sense to me. Many thanks to you and Dan for the fast and helpful answers. Ken

    ATT:RST Message

    Just to ensure I don't mess this up; is the path to these panel files in D:\Flight Simulator X\SimObjects\Airplanes\PMDG 747-400* or is it D:\Flight Simulator X\PMDG\PMDG 747 QOTS II\PanelState ? Thank you, Ken

    I use FSX Dan. Are the procedures different for FSX ? Thanks again, Ken

    ATT:RST Message

    Thank you for the insight Dan. Throughout most of the ~12 hour flight I would periodically press the "RST" button "just for drill". About 10 hours into the flight when I pressed it, the indicator display started a countdown (timer) and at the end of the countdown the horizon magically appeared. Very strange behavior methinks > and no, my mouse button has no intermittent type issues, LOL !!. I've done many flights with QOS II and not seen the STBY HSI behave this way. >> "regardless, new version always delete old panel files and create new" << Are you referring to after a QOS II update is installed Dan ? How is creating a new Panel file accomplished ? I'm guessing it's fairly simple, but I'm not exactly sure how to go about it. Best to all, Ken

    ATT:RST Message

    Thank you for the reply Peter; however as I mentioned, Pressing the Reset (RST) button (as per the FCOM) does nothing. Ken
  8. I have ATT:RST (Error ?) message on the Standby HSI where the Gyro Horizon bar should be. All else seems normal (Alt , Hdg and AS indications ). What does this message mean, and how do I correct the problem ? I tried pressing the small black "RST" button at the lower LG corner of the instrument, but did not help... Ken

    Immersion for 747-8i?

    The Immersion package for the FSX PMDG T7 looks good (I bought it); So there must be something (unique) about the FSX PMDG QOS II that is problematic concerning the creation of the immersion for it .......... What a shame. Ken

    Immersion for 747-8i?

    Thank you for the reply Keven. Are there any plans for an FSX version ? Ken

    Immersion for 747-8i?

    Is the B747 QOS II Immersion package for FSX Acceleration ? On the Old Prop' ad page it only mentions "P3D V4 or Newer", unless I missed something. Thank you, Ken Boardman

    FSX Loran ?

    Thanks to all for the very interesting messages. And thank you for the tips about the Weather Ship Gauge Bill. I'll be after it ~:) In early 70's I was assigned to a US Navy EKA-3B detachment attached to USS Hancock. I believe that our planes were equipped with Loran C. I know that Sextants were always aboard. Not fer sher, but I'm thinkin' that equipment wasn't used much except for the long range flights > "transpacs" from the states to Philippines and back. Best to all, Ken

    FSX Loran ?

    Has anyone developed a LORAN simulation (Loran C) add-on for FSX ? I know it was "laid to rest" in the real world in ~2010 but I enjoy flying the older AC and would like to have a LORAN system for them if there's one available out here in cyber space somewhere. Best to all, Ken

    RAAS Quit Working

    Update / Follow-up >> I had been under the impression that the Profiles in the (FSX) RAAS Pro pop-up were completely optional. They're not. Fact is, I have learned the hard way that each specific aircraft type (or Model) that I desire to use RAAS with must have a Profile, And, that this Profile must be selected from a pull down list inside the pop-up. Also, the " Master Switch (ON / OFF) " block in the pop-up must be selected (ON) in order for RAAS to function with the active aircraft type (ie PMDG B777, PMDG B747, etc). For those who aren't aware, the Profile pop-up is accessed from the "Add-ons" pull down menu on FSX Menu Bar. Also, be aware that the correct aircraft type (or model) must be selected > I discovered that there were two 777 entries on my profile list ( "777X" entry, and a "PMDG B777" entry). Only the " 777X " entry when selected, would give me RAAS for the PMDG B777. The Profile List is accessed from the pop-up's menu bar, Now I am able to successfully use the Locked FS2Crew RAAS on all three of my aircraft types that included RAAS (Locked) in their installations > PMDG B777, PMDG B747 and Aerosoft Airbus Extended packages. Hope this may help those who may find themselves in my earlier, somewhat cornfuzed dilemma. Feel free to ask questions and / or offer criticism / ridicule. Best to all, Ken

    RAAS Quit Working

    Hi Bryan, I believe all 3 planes are working correctly now. I did not realize the necessity of having the Master Sw set "ON" for the specific Aircraft Type that is loaded in FSX. Seemed to me that the profiles were optional features. Also, there are two profiles for the 777 on the Profiles list; And I may have created one of them >> there is a " 777X " and a " PMDG B777 ". The RAAS will work with the PMDG B777 profile, but not with the 777X profile. Bottom line is PMDG B744 and B777 and the Airbuses all are working for me now. Thank you for your help with this. Ken
