    Senior Cabin Crew for British Airways in real life... I live in Poole (Southern England) but fly out of EGLL on INTL services. I love cars and will natter anyone to death about them. I play for my local female hockey team and I am kinda okay! Been simming for years, love flying around on FSX mainly on the Boeing 77W, can't wait for the Boeing 777-200ER :o)

  1. Hej I download the B777 file on Monday 11th and pleased to say everything is now working window wise. Thank you PMDG for the fix... Happy New Year all, Kimber Rjones.
  2. Hej All, To confirm I did very thing to the book (uninstall and reinstall). I have even uninstalled it all for a second time and reinstalled it - still blacked out cabin windows. While it is not a show stopper it does change the look of the aircraft. Unlike some PMDG users I spend quite a bit of time outside looking at the aircraft. As a CSM (cabin services manager) for BAW I tend to use the cabin lighting and temp control a lot - I try to keep it 'real' even in the cabin (I am such a geek!). For example on a night time take off, or as cabin crew say: "during the hours of darkness the lights are dimmed for take off (or landing)" the cabin lighting is reduced from 50% (used during taxi to runway) to 20%. During the initial climb (after 2,000ft) cabin lighting is increased to 50% and shortly before the seat belt sign is turned off the lighting is increased again to 75% where it remains until we settle the pax down for the night by the temp going up from 21oC to 23oC and cabin lighting is turned all the way down to 02%. As I use the cabin lighting so much and watch the aircraft from outside quite a bit having the windows not 'working'/blacked out for me reduces the 'realness' of the aircraft, but as Kyle said the B777 is still usable - just having to avoid looking at the outside of the aircraft Maybe we are noticing this small/minor issue more then normal because the rest of the PMDG B777 is near perfect :smile: I have every confidence PMDG will sort this issue out quickly - they always do :wink: Best Regards Kimber Rjones.
  3. Hello. Not sure there is any use trying what Carlan2uk suggested as I myself did a total/complete clean installation with latest file plus I don't have any third party software apart from PMDG B777 and ASN. Even after the total clean (everything deleted) reinstall I don't have transparent cabin windows. Could it be a graphics card issue? I use a GTX680 - what do you guys use? Wondering maybe that is the common link? I must admit I know nothing about programming :( Hope this is sorted out sooner then later by PMDG - but at least the aircraft is useable and and it's only a visiual issue. regards Kimberly Rjones
  4. Hej Thanks for pointing that post out my friend, I searched for lights out rather then transparent hence why nothing came up. Oh well. Thanks again Kimber Rjones.
  5. Hej I have the same problem so I hope PMDG sorts it out soon, which I am sure they will do... Does not seem right flying at night with no cabin lights :o( Kimber RJones.
  6. Hello All I have checked the forum to see if the issue listed below has been covered. I can't find anything about it so here it goes... After taking off from TAPA at 22:30 (so the sky was dark) I noticed that while my cabin lights were set to 90% the pax windows remained dark/black. I then noticed that the windows that used to be see though are now blank, you can't see though them into the cabin and they remain dark no matter what I do (so they remain black with lights on 100% or on automatic (100% or 75%). I am using the PMDG British Airways repaint (G-STBB). This is the only aircraft I fly on FSX so I can 100% confirm they were working before PMDG's latest update. I have checked everything was set correctly and it was. My settings have not changed so the aircraft that worked perfectly (windows see through and you could see light through them at night) are now blank/black/never lit up... I run windows FSX, my operating system is Windows Vista and my graphics card is a GTX 680 (which I have had for a few years now). As I am in the middle of a flight I can't take a screen photo of them problem but I will ensure one is posted once I land later today... Thanks for any help Kind Regards Kimberly RJones.
  7. EGLL > KJFK + full flight - IFE = nightmare :o(

  8. Hej Kyle - Jag saknar den svenska god tid hålla gen , det är därför så många av mina flygningar på arbetet försenas :blink: Thanks for your help my friend, I think I was just over thinking everything and worrying about the complete wipe etc. I well all out and got a brand new unit (PC) she is breaking in very well B) Fly Safe Chaps Kimberly Richmond-Jones.
  9. Hej Please to say I have got the correct file, if anyone else ever has this issue the file is '777x_shortcuts' Fly Safe Kimberly Richmond-Jones.
  10. Hello All, I am about to wipe my PC and start again from fresh, spring cleaning if you like (just a little late). I have backed everything up but I wanted to double check, which PMDG file holds the key assingments and short cuts? and where can I find this file/s? I hope that by backing up this file (that stores the key assignments and short cuts) I won't have to spend hours re assigning everything once I have reinstalled both FSX and PMDG's B777. Many Thanks Kimberly Richmond-Jones
  11. Hello All, I have a very confusing situation in FSX and I can't quite get my head around the issues. I have been using FSX in the same config as I have now (with the same software and hardware) for at least six months. According to my private log book thats 344h in the PMDG B77W alone. On Saturday while flying from EGLL to SKBO I suffered a CTD event 63 minutes from landing - with the following errors being displayed by windows: Problem signature: Problem Event Name: APPCRASH Application Name: fsx.exe Application Version: 10.0.61472.0 Application Timestamp: 475e17d3 Fault Module Name: g2d.dll Fault Module Version: 10.0.61472.0 Fault Module Timestamp: 475e180c Exception Code: c0000005 Exception Offset: 0008408c OS Version: 6.0.6002.

I tried for a third time and yep CTD 63 minutes before landing. I then aborted trying to fly that flight and went to set up the return leg, SKBO to EGLL. This time I can't even get as far as loading FSX fully. Once I have selected the aircraft (PMDG 77W BA), airport (SKBO stand 25) and the weather (Active Sky Next) after three minutes CTD with the same two errors above! I have tried loading a non PMDG aircraft into SKBO and it still crashes with the same two errors and I have also tried not using Active Sky Next - it still crashes as set above. If I load any other airport all is fine! It seems be an issues around that airport. I do not have any third party airports and I have not had any other crashes. Any suggestions? Kimberly RJ.
