  1. If you haven't already done so, checkout the following: The Goflight Interface Tool https://www.pollypotsoftware.org.uk/
  2. FWIW, I successfully replaced the two throttle pots 3-4 months ago. It is tedious. Using desoldering braid to wick away existing solder makes it easier.
  3. In a response today from FSDT (Virtuali),about the GCO DME, he said "Fixed in today"s update."
  4. It does not appear in the Simmarket basket. Thought I'd ask first, in case someone had already figured it out, before asking directly. Thanks for the reply!
  5. I purchased LVFR MIAMI INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT KMIA V4 FSX P3D from simMarket on 4/6/2019. The LVFR website notes, "If you bought KMIA v4 after April 1st 2019 you are entitled to a free upgrade of KMIA v5". Simmarket is charging an upgrade fee of 14 Euros. How do I get the free upgrade?
  6. I too had this problem after running the FSDT Live Update of the GSX PBR Update. I decided to run the "Full GSX Installer" based on a comment from Virtuali in his forum post announcing the new PBR update..."In general, we noticed that, due to the large number of updated files and new files to be downloaded, it might be best to use the FULL Installer method". That solved the issue.
  7. You're welcome! I'd recommend spending time at the Goflight Interface Tool website viewing the forum and the User Guides. This should be quite helpful.
  8. The manuals I received (in PDF format) with the original download total 3,676 pages. FCTM (356pp) FCOM V1 (1,210pp) FCOM V2 (1,266) QRH (844pp) Note: The documents are Boeing proprietary licensed for use by PMDG. The pdf files are locked intentionally and can not be copied or printed.
  9. Programming the Goflight Interface Tool can be challenging. Here are my settings for the APU and Autobrake. > Settings for the APU Switch GF-T8 (toggle switches) [Select a Toggle Switch] Functions Switch Event: ON EVT_OH_ELEC_APU_SEL_SWITCH Switch Action: CUSTOM_WITH_OFF Custom Value 2 Light Data: DATA_OH_ELEC_SWITCH_APU Light Action: ON_GREATER_THAN Light Value 0 How it works: When the toggle is placed in the "On" position, the 777 APU Switch will click to "Start" then revert to "Run". Whenever the toggle is in the "Off" position, the 777 APU will switch to "Off". > Settings for AUTOBRAKE GF-RP48 (knobs, LEDs, buttons) 1) Select a Rotary Knob Functions Rotary Event: CLOCKWISE EVT_ABS_AUTOBRAKE_SELECTOR Rotary Action: ROTATE Custom Value 0 How it works: Turn the knob counterclockwise to set RTO (or, if in flight, to a lower Autobrake setting). Turn the knob clockwise for Autobrake settings 1-4.   2) Select the 2 buttons below the "rotary knob" assigned above] Button (1) Button Event: ON Button Action: NOTHING Light Data: DATA_FWDPAN_BRAKES_SWITCH_AUTO_BRAKE Light Action: ON_LESS_THAN Light Value 1 Button (2) Button Event: ON Button Action: NOTHING Light Data: DATA_FWDPAN_BRAKES_SWITCH_AUTO_BRAKE Light Action: ON_GREATER_THAN Light Value 1 How it works: Nothing will happen when the buttons are pushed. However, when the knob is turned counter clockwise (to set RTO) the LED for button (1) will light. Turning the knob clockwise the LED for button (2) will light. When the Autobrake is set to OFF, both LEDs are also remain off (unlit). Probably not the only way to program these two functions, but it works for me.
  10. I have several GoFLight modules including the MCPPro, EFIS, Throttle, LGT, T8's and P8's. And, yes, you do have to program them individually for the PMDG 737 and the 777. (The MCPPro is based on the 737, but it works well with the 777.) When I first got the modules I was, like you, only flying the 737. When the 777 was released, I had to re-program the modules. Since I stopped flying the 737 it was not a problem for me. The Goflight Interface Tool will recognize which aircraft you are flying, but knowing what each Goflight switch or button does, depending on which aircraft you're flying could be a challenge. There is a lot of information available on the Goflight Interface Forum.

    More like approx 12 300ER's and some 46+ various 200's. For the record...my post may have been mis-interpreted and I'd agree it could have been better worded. I never meant to imply that BA did not fly 777-200's. Only that they did not fly the 200LR.

    I believe it is because British Airways only flies the Boeing 777-300ER. The 300ER is longer with a larger pax capacity. (Assuming you are referring to the 777-200.)
  13. For what it's worth, I have had the PMDG 777 (latest version) and Active Sky (latest version) installed in FSX (not Steam or P3D) for over 2 years and have not had any problems. I also use FSUIPC (without problems, but you have to use it with care.) Are you carefully following the the Active Sky documentation for installing as_btstrp.dll? The files in your \as_srv directory (found in the Flightsim directory) have to agree with the installed version of ASN. Installing a backup file from an earlier installation of ASN will not work even if the file "looks" similar. I'm guessing your issues could be (are) related to your installation of ActiveSky, but that's ONLY A GUESS! I would agree with Olympic260's suggestion, that you wait until you hear further from HiFi support.
  14. The GoFlight Interface Tool is a hardware interface tool and it has been around for more than 5 years. Originally it was developed to provide an interface between the PMDG 737 and GoFlight hardware modules. Initially freeware then donationware, it is now payware. It is found at PollyPotSoftware https://www.pollypotsoftware.org.uk/
  15. I created a modification to add the Bulk cargo belt loader to the 777-200. Assuming you've already done some GSX modifications to the PMDG 777-200 aircraft configurations, then you can edit the gsx.cfg in \user\(user name)\AppData\Roaming\Virtuali\Airplanes\PMDG 777-200LR\ change the default: [cargomain] remove = 1 To: [cargomain] pos = 2.29 -18.66 -0.84 9.70 code = 0 uldcode = BELT
