    ILS frequencies in FMC not correct

    You can d/l a specific FSC update from Navigraph each month. Running a 'registry fix' might help, it did me on the 747 with this issue.

    Good idea, I'm going to do that next time. Now just got to get reverse thrust working...

    It is very annoying to have the last little bit of a perfect flight ruined by this.

    Linda is probably in the wrong place. I just ran it from my desktop and the folders were not in the right place. Where should the main Linda folder be installed?

    Stopping brakes failing / sticking..?

    I had Autobrakes 2 set last night and came in at about 132kts (I was very light). I did as instructed in the tutorial and hit the manual brakes at just under 80kts. The brakes totally failed on landing and they then seemed stuck on. I then engaged and disengaged the parking brake, that released the stuck brakes. Then I had no brakes at all. This is bothering me and can't be at all realistic. Please don't ask me what my brake temperature was as I have no clue. I just want to turn the brake failures off while I'm learning to fly the damn thing.

    Livery and Livery Manager issues - how to resolve

    OK - I have placed the textures.900 folder BACK into the 900 (non winglet) folder from whence it originated. There appear to be no issues yet. I would really rather not fanny about re-installing all the liveries, not to mention the aircraft itself. I will keep you updated.

    Livery and Livery Manager issues - how to resolve

    Great, I took your advice in good faith and deleted the files you asked me to, including the textures.900 folder. I actually kept the folder so will it work if I just place it back where it came from? If so please let me know if I have to reinstall the NGX? If i do, does that involve a new download and reactivation? If so please let me know how this is done?

    PMDG 737NGX Flow Checklist

    I can't open the page, Avsim says I don't have permission, but I'm logged in properly. Anyone else unable to access that file? EDIT: sorted, had to use zipdive, thanks for the doc.

    Livery and Livery Manager issues - how to resolve

    All I'm saying is this what happened to me. I used that site to update my fsx.cfg file, then FSX failed to even run. I cured it by going back to my original file. If I offered to 'improve' your china teapot and did so by smashing it to pieces and then giving it back to you, you would feel a bit like I did.

    PMDG 737 NGX (module 4.12) - Sept 2018

    Can I have some help please? I have downloaded the two NGX folders (I use the MCP Combo) and put them where it says to in the OP. There is no other LINDA stuff in that Modules folder (I do have Linda installed). I have run Linda and no reference to the NGX. Should I have actually installed Linda in a different place? PS I have never used LInda before. EDIT; have figured this out. Have moved the NGX files to the Linda folder on my desktop. I still have a question though - should LINDA have installed itself into the modules folder?

    Livery and Livery Manager issues - how to resolve

    OK, update here. I carried out the above procedure in conjunction with visiting that site (Venetubo) that offers to reconfigure your fsx.cfg file. Doing this is encouraged in the NGX 'Intro' manual. This is what killed my FSX, not doing the above. I strongly advise people to tread carefully with that site. I could not even START FSX after I used their recommendations. I know it's free and you are warned to make a back-up (which I am back now using) but still, it's a bit rubbish. I still can't work out why I had to throw away the 'texture.900' but nothing seems to have happened as a result.

    I've done what they said and deleted ALL texture folders EXCEPT the three he mentions. I do hope that advise was correct!!!!

    Livery and Livery Manager issues - how to resolve

    OK - since following the above advice above to the letter I have now had SIX fatal crashes with FSX (I have a dedicated FS system with nothing else running except this browser) and FSX is taking an age to load. I never get CTDs or anything like that normally and the system works flawlessly. This is becoming very annoying.
