  1. Hello everyone, in an effort to rule out conflicting programs and add-ons, I want to first back up, then delete all files that contain 3rd party information and start P3D. I would like to run the list by you to see if I forgot something. 1. Scenery.cfg and Add-ons.cfg from C:\ProgramData\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v4 2. All shaders folder from C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v4 3. Dll.xml, Exe.xml, Prepar3d.cfg and again Add-ons.cfg from C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v4 I want all foreign programs that may inject into the SIM as well as all scenery to be disregarded. I believe this will take care of that. The only thing I am not sure about is if GSX will also stay out of it. Any ideas?
  2. I'll look into the second option there, Thanks !
  3. I did, yes. Twice. Don't know if it's my headset. I have a standard Logitech USB headset.
  4. Is anyone having issues with ON/OFF? All my FO hears is ALT. Cheers
  5. I could but I use the number for chaseplane views. So every time I choose something it changes views. What I mean is the GSX or AS dialog window. It uses the same P3D window (the transparent grey window). That windows does not map my cursor position correctly.
  6. Hello, I was having a hard time to find proper search criteria for this so I thought I would ask. For the longest time I am having issues with click spot location in pop up windows in P3D. Every time I fly it can be different. I use the GSX and AS-P3Dv4 on every flight. Here is what happens. I load up P3D and start preparing. In the course of preparing of course I open up the GSX window. This opens the semi transparent dialog box. Now when I hover over a certain item, the actual selection I make is one or two items above/below where my mouse currently is. And since the color change when highlighting an item is almost imperceptible I end up choosing wrong things. It doesn't matter if it's the GSX or ActiveSky box. I immediately know I have been dealt the bad hand when I try to expand the box and notice that the edge of the box (where I need to click and drag to expand) is located a certain distance up from the bottom of the box. The only way to remedy this except for squinting for 10 seconds to make sure the correct choice is highlighted is to revert to undocked window mode. Then the cursor does exactly what it should. Is this common? Any ideas? I am running 4K on a 52" Samsung smart TV. Xander
  7. Frank, really really nice. Would appreciate a copy !!! Cheers,
  8. We also joked how on the MD80 we smelled it even before it was ..... hmmm...... jettisoned 😉
  9. You're absolutely right. The AUX pumps were switched OFF
  10. Interesting. I can't find any reference in the B748 FCOM to place the stabilizer at 6° at a certain point. So I always let mine the way it last stayed after landing.
  11. At 5:03 in the video you see that he has the AUX pumps in SYS 1&4 ON. That is not representative of the picture above. FCOM also says that these are electrical and used for ground handling operations, of which this clearly is. The fact that he used 2 and 4 might come down to personal preference, specific company maintenance policy or even cycles on the No. 1 engine. Who knows, but with the AUX pumps on, the requirement of which engines to use becomes moot. He even has HYD SYS 2 pump switch to OFF. It also appears as if he is describing rotor bowing to the filmer. Interesting stuff...
  12. Hi Guys, I was fueling the 747-8i on a ULR from 11.8 to 155.4 tons. I was minding my own business when suddenly the engineer came on the intercom. I could barely make out him asking me to pressurize hydraulics 2 & 3 and to set the stabilizer to 6° for proper stabilizer refueling. I was surprised, but complied. After I set my stab trim to 6°, the engineer came back on to ask me to depressurize the hydraulics so he can start fueling. I complied, and some 15 seconds later ..... viola !!! Amazing. Since a quick search online or in the intro manual did not reveal results I though it would be interesting to post. Cheers,
  13. Guys, as I mentioned many moons ago, 1. the real 777 does not behave this way, 2. You can use the reverse when the mains have compression 3. "Fly to the runway" means don't let the nose drop too hard. It doesn't mean push it down otherwise it refuses. 4. Thanks for the guys who are investigating this to make an amazing product even better. 5. PMDG show the B777 some fresh love. His brothers are all going in past v3 😉 Cheers,
  14. Couldn't find any reference of "peaks" in the manuals...
  15. For RNAV Approaches in the 777; - Set platform altitude, and make sure you are in SPD | LNAV | VNAV PTH when approaching FAF. Speed is controlled manually in the 777 in final approach - About 2 NM prior to FAF, set the MDA on the MCP - After leaving platform altitude on the way down, make sure to be at least 300' below the missed approach altitude, THEN set MisAp altitude in MCP - Autopilot MAY be left on to at the lowest 200' above ground, provided that the runway itself is coded as a waypoint on the approach. This check is done during approach preparation. If not, disconnect the autopilot at MDA.
