    Is the ZFW correct?

    Lol, I guess I was thinking of MZFW. My bad.

    Is the ZFW correct?

    I know this will probably sound like a petty detail, but in looking at the FMC, I see the ZFW as 121.8, which, to my understanding, is incorrect. Am I correct in interpreting this as 121,800 lbs? If so, I believe that the 737-800 models H thru T and the X have a ZFW of 136,000 lbs and the U & Y have a ZFW of 138,300 lbs. Brian Nuss

    REF speeds and FD deleting with AP disengage

    Exactly. Yes, I use the button on my yoke that is dedicated to AP disengage, not the button on the MCP panel. It doesn't always happen, so I don't why it happens when I see it.
  4. Hello folks, I've been noticing that occasionally, when I'm flying an approach like an ILS, that sometimes, when I disengage the autopilot, the REF speeds disappear and the Flight Director goes away. I can re-engage the FD by hitting the approach button on the MCP, but I have to remember what the original REF speeds were. Is this a bug with the PMDG 737 or does it reflect something real in the actual airplane? Thanks, Brian Nuss

    Requesting help with building an approach

    Okay--First--thank you everyone for offering their suggestions. Using Downscc's point of putting '//" before a line, I took everything out, including the fixes, and then one by one, began putting them back in until I got another error message. I ended up removing the Missed Approach dialogue and the transition line which makes the approach functional now. I'm not sure why the wording of those two lines doesn't seem to be working but as long as I can fly the approach in the sim, it's not a big deal.

    Requesting help with building an approach

    So I tried eliminating this entire line: TRANSITION IAF26 FIX IAF26 AT OR ABOVE 5000 But still got the same error message. :o/ I'm pretty sure the fixes themselves are accurate, as I've double checked them. Also, my modified RNVV08 approach works with the additional fixes I've added...
  7. Hi, I've been working on constructing some RNP-like approaches for the 737 NGX. After experimenting around, I was able to successfully modify an existing approach by placing additional fixes in it (I also used ADEX to create the fixes for the airport file in the sim), but when I went to create an entirely new approach (RNVV26), I get the following error message on the FMC LN:18 ERR at FIXES Having gone over it a million times, I can't see where I've gone wrong but maybe some one here savvier than I am can see it. Here is the relevant airport file; //PAJN (JUNEAU INTL) //Worldwide Navigation Database //Exported via DFD v1.0 18.1006 //Software copyright (c) 2018 Richard Stefan, NAVData-Service //Support

  8. Hello, A few more questions, if I may: 1. Why does the speed value on the MCP window go blank after takeoff? And how does one alter the value when that happens? 2. Related to #1, what are the purposes of the buttons labeled C/O and SPD INTV? 3. It seems that occasionally, the HDG button cannot be illuminated after pressing it. Also, there are times when I press it, and I get an illuminated indication on the PFD but the button remains extinguished. 4. Is there a way to backlight the buttons on the FMC during night conditions? (A universal FMS has a dimmer/brighter option) Thanks in advance for your help! Brian Nuss

    Salmon-thirty-salmon livery?

    Awesome!! Thank you!
  10. Just wondering if anyone knows of an Alaska Airlines Salmon-thirty-salmon repaint that was created for the PMDG 737? It's quite a striking look for the plane.
  11. Hello, After going through the tutorial #1 several times, I've found a few things I'm having difficulty finding: 1. Where is the C/R (cancel/recall) MFD button located? 2. Where is the TRC button located? 3. Where is the bank limiter selector located? 4. Where is the brake pressure gauge located? 5. How does one determine OAT in the air? 6. How does one shorten the distance for the 'Total Distance' on the Pushback page? Thanks in advance, Brian
  12. Thanks, Robert. PMDG got back to me directly and gave me a quick and easy fix--just uninstall and then re-install Steam. I didn't lose any of my add-ons and after doing that--Bing! The installation was able to proceed. 🐵
  13. I ran a registry fix tool previously, so as far as I know, the routing is correct. I did however, submit a ticket to PMDG.
  14. I am trying to install the 737NG and when I get past the screen asking which version I want (FSX & FSX Steam) I get the following error message; An outdated version of FSX-SE has been detected. Before you can install this PMDG product you will need to update FSX-SE. However, I have the most recent version of FSX-SE on my PC and there are no updates available. Thanks in advance, Brian Nuss

    Best 737 payware?

    I'm looking to get a payware 737 for FSX Steam, and wondering which one seems to be the best, in terms of realistic behaviour, detail, and functionality. My use is for training purposes. Thanks in advance.
