  1. Hello, forget about EPR. You will not be able to get this as the GE90 does not use EPR, period. To get it, you engine has to have air pressure sensors mounted at two different places in it for the gauge to then measure the ratio between the two, which the GE90 does not use. Most GE engines use only N1 % as a power setting unit. Since the PMDG 777 models only the GE90 (because that was the only factory option for the B777F, B777-200LR and B777-300ER) you will not see the EPR gauge. The EPR gauge has just as little place in a GE90 B777 as a propeller RPM gauge. So no matter how you change your MFD setup, no EPR will appear.
  2. Correct, because you did it this way, and because you probably have activesky the FMC will do an ACARS sequence in which it not only loads the plan, but loads the waypoint winds etc just as in real life. Only you have to execute these downloads. Because you have not executed these downloads, the *FMC prompt stays displayed. It is too long to explain here, but look at the B777-300ER Supplement on page 7. It will go in to detail on how this works. And/Or search online for PMDG 777's company datalink feature. Cheers,
  3. Are you doing the PMDG and Active Sky flight plan loading? In other words are you requesting you flight plan through the FMC, or are you loading you flight plan manually?
  4. Hi, it means that you probably forgot to complete the ACARS upload sequence. My bet would be either the wind upload or the descent winds upload. Press the FMC COMM button, and it will prompt you to the page where you still have open tasks. Cheers,
  5. Hello Patrick, 1. Make sure the axis is completely removed in your P3D v4 axes assignments. 2. Go to FSUIPC, remove the current spoiler assignment. 3. Next rescan the axis, but instead of selecting "Send to FS as normal axis", you choose "Send direct to FSUIPC calibration". The got to Joystick Calibration. 4. Choose "Spoilers" 5. Select "Rev" as you did previously. 6. Calibrate the axis in FSUIPC. 7. Done Hopefully all works as it should after.... Cheers,
  6. I believe it can be any of two things: 1. Is the panel state. If you just load a PMDG default state to rule out the possibility. 2. Are you flying circuits with the 777? I used to have that issue when flying circuits. It seems the GPWS is not cycling out of the takeoff phase and is applying GPWS Mode 3 as you are below the threshold altitude with a descending trend. Hence the "Dont Sink". This may relate to option 1, where for some reason the GPWS is in TO phase. Cheers,
  7. I would die for an MD-80 ;-) But then again I may be biased, given my 5000+ hours on type. Plus as stated above, if they announce it, I'll die. So I won't be around to enjoy it. Just imagine though, the sounds of the slipstream, the instruments vibrators humming in the background, a complete lack of engine noise, the Mach indicator bouncing away (as in the B744 MCP digits) and the sounds of the Central Aural Warning System coming alive in due time as you descend towards your destination. All in PMDG level quality !!!! Oh......my heart is melting
  8. Are you using the same weather as per the tutorial? I ask because I have never done one, so I don't know if it includes its own weather. That is one area to check. Second is takeoff technique. As in do not allow to much time to pass before pressing TOGA. Other than that, power settings, flaps etc should all be logical. Make sure you weather and performance figures match those in the tutorial.
  9. Don't really use it. But just so you know. It does work in P3D v4.
  10. Nevermind the tutorial. Set up with engines running on any airport. Go to menu and disable all joysticks and quadrants. Now press F3 until the thrust is set at around 55% and hit the TOGA screw. See if this now fixes that part. As for the second part, SOP says you place the throttle to idle AND disengage the A/T. So, press CTRL SHIFT R (I believe this is the shortcut to switch off the autothrottles) then F1. This should trigger the RTO sequence. Do this to verify if it is your joystick (sensitivity/null zone) settings are faulty and go grom there. Cheers,
  11. Hi, went and researched a little for you. The BIBUN6A is now the BUBIN1B. Only one difference that I can see is that instead of crossing GIRMI at 230 and below 13000, it has you crossing at 230 and below 11000. So except a TOD that starts about 6 nm earlier everything is exactly as in the turorial. The T/D cue, the speed reduction cue, and the restrictions at DB423, TALVI, DB417 and the transition level are the same. Nothing that hampers you from flying the tutorial as stated in the pdf. cheers,
  12. Yes indeed. Knew I forgot something
  13. I use Mark Foti's Remote CDU. Works like a charm. Support items like cfg setup are automatic. Key requests with system chamges take all of 45 minutes to get e new license file. It works very nice. Specific for 737, 747 and 777.
  14. Ali, I see you have your display at 320 NM when on the ground. All terrain that is a certain threshold above your current altitude is marked as red. Since the airport is at sea level, it is easy to trip the red color, and the yellow one. That is why you are seeing so much red. Try reducing your scale. The ND/TERR is not meant to be at 320 NM for takeoff anyways. There's no limitation, but it makes sense as you want to follow your departure path. Cheers,
