  1. "DISCO INSRTD AFTER XXXX" is quite normal, Gary. I recommend you read the FMC chapter in the manual - not just about that message but the whole thing. You're going to need a thorough understanding of the FMC anyway and that chapter will solve many problems for you before they arise.Cheers.Geoff
  2. Hi all, I don't have a lot of experience in this aircraft and very little experience flying VOR approaches manually.I understand that the B767 won't track a VOR automatically and it's easy enough to track it manually using HDG SEL, having the mode switch set to one of its VOR positions - easy, that is, when you have NAV1 tuned to the VOR and the navigation display is right in front of you.But what if you have NAV2 tuned to the VOR - in the RW would you lean over to the right seat to view its navigation display? I guess not, so what am I missing?CheersGeoff
  3. Ok Jim - many thanks for explaining that. There's NL2000 out there for the Netherlands - I'll take a look at that.CheersGeoff
  4. Hi all, after installing EHAM Schiphol V3 (px_afcad_v3.zip) from the AVSIM library, I find I can no longer capture the localiser on what is now 18C and on the new 18R, and maybe on other rwys, too. Capturing 18C, for example, entering from the right (loc on my left), I see the magenta indicator to the right when it should be to the left. But the loc captures anyway and turns me initially onto the selected course of 184, but then turns me left to seesaw a couple of degrees either side of 162. No sign of a glide slope. Feeling I might be looking at a backcourse, I tried the same runway from the opposite direction. The ILS brought me down perfectly, capturing the LOC and the G/S. I landed right on the threshold - but at the wrong end of the rwy! I uninstalled the scenery and it fixed the problem, except that I no longer have the missing runway. I want to reinstall it but I need some tips for looking for the source of the problem. Appreciate any help. Thanks Geoff
  5. Not sure why the above entry is in German. Thought I'd help out with a translation..." Topic: Installation errorI'm still around, haven't logged in for a while.Werner has a huge problem with reinstalling the PMDG 600/700.At 'Select flight;PMDG;Quickstart', FS9 in Win2000 loads the 737 at Lippstadt, as previously. After Battery Switch on, though, the instrument panel should come alive, that is, display. It remains dead and the sound gives up. Starting the APU works, but without sound and without effect on the above mentioned.In a different installation on a different hard disk everything works.When uninstalling I also deleted all 737 PMDG in Documents/Settings etc before reinstalling. But still no success.Has anyone any ideas?GDI+ is installed I assume, otherwise the other hard disk wouldn't work.I'm talking about an installation in the normal folder C:...MSgamesFS9Thanks in advance for your help fromWerner from Alfaz "(translated by Geoff Kent)
  6. Thank JD, I was at FL 160 and hadn't yet set to local pressure.If I can duplicate the problem I'll send you the log.CheersGeoff
  7. Hi all,I was passed by RC4 to the next controller at which point my copilot informed him we were descending past (say) FL200 with discretion to FL160. The controller replied RGR but having reached 16000' I didn't hear from him again.Anyone understand what might have gone wrong?ThanksGeoff
  8. Hi Geoff, this one's simple enough to fix when you know where to look. In FS, go to Options > Settings > Display... > Aircraftthen set the virtual cockpit guage quality to High.CheersGeoff
  9. You're right Carl, you actually click on the word BARO above the switch.Geoff
  10. Hi all, I had a VC question in an earlier post that seems to have got lost in the detail.In the MCP speed, heading, altitude digital displays, can anyone tell me why the zero and eight digits both display as filled-in zeros in the virtual cockpit.I've read somewhere that this is a screen resolution problem but I can't remember where. I've tried adjusting the res using Windows Display Properties but with no effect. The res setting in FS is the same at 1280x1024x32.I'm using a GeForce 8600 GTS.Appreciate your help.Geoff
  11. Thanks Golli. Nicholas, I took a look at some Track IR videos and was impressed. I'll get used to the VC first and if I find I use it regularly I'll start saving up.Geoff
