  1. So after reading your post Mr. Downscc, which I thank you, finding the correct path and then the correct file and then the instructions to read in their file. I was simple. Why is it so complicated to do something simple on this computer? It make me feel really stupid that I didn't figure it out for myself first and not be on of those who does not RTFM! and post here. Anyway I got all sorted out. Thanks again. Wayne
  2. Kyle, Thanks for the response. I have looked at the intro Manual, once and quickly scanned through it. I didn't think twice about the TAB key assignment. I thought it was pretty nifty.... until the SODE arrived. I will now look again. edit; I was looking at the wrong pages for the key assignment, which is where I was looking. It was in the simulation pages and not the key commands. Thank You, Wayne
  3. Greetings, Using the PMDG aircraft FMC, the Tab key activates the data line. However, the SODE program used in several add on scenery's also uses the TAB + S key to activate the system. I know I can use the menu from the top of P3D, but for shortcuts is there a way to change or delete the Tab data activation key in the FMC. Each time I use the SODE menu Tab key I enter an S on the the FMC and the pop ups get hidden and I am not sure sometimes what is activated on screen. If not, I will just remember to use the menu at the top. I have looked in the key assignments, no joy. I cannot configure the SODE. Thanks, Wayne L Pierce
  4. Thank you for the reply. I will give your advice a try. Thanks
  5. Greetings, I have looked at the Manuals and I am sure I missed it, but how does one reset the FMC to accept a new flight. Aside from totally resetting the aircraft I cannot seem to let the FMC reset/ reload itself for a new flight. I put in a new destination but the flight legs, departure and arrival from the old flight are still there. Is there an on off switch I am missing. ?? Thank You, Wayne L Pierce
  6. Greetings, not a big thing, but I notice the vehicle towing the A/C unit in the BOAC skin does not tow the A/C unit. It stays put until the little truck stops , jumps in position, then no hoses are connected. Then the ground connections in the CDU will report arriving but never does change. Does this affect the aircraft functions at all ? The other aircraft work fine, well the quantas does at least. Thank You, Wayne L Pierce
  7. After further testing. Success! I found the yoke would not work correctly in the yoke control function of simulator. It would keep the Ailerons turned left. I use FSUIPC for all assignments, always have and will. I had to remove the yoke assignments from the FSUIPC "normal axis" and reassign it to FSUIPC calibration mode for it to be read by the 777. Thank You,
  8. Thanks for replying. Yes it is checked. Still working on the problem. Thanks
  9. I have a small problem with the Yoke and parking brake actions of my cockpit translating to the VC of the 777 in both FSX and P3D, (ither version when it is loaded.) I can control the A/C with the yoke in manual flight. The foot pedals work fine for rudder and brakes. My controls do operate normally in the 737 in both platforms but not the 777. I have the latest updates for all that is required. There is no visual representation of Ailerons or the parking brake lever. The Ailerons on the wings do show operation if I use the keyboard controls, but not the parking brake. It does not show as operating on the text message on the screen either. I use Precision flight controls and have the latest PFchid141 and FSUIPC loaded and operating. I have done the sim connect repair and start the aircraft from the scenerio screen to get the mouse to operate the VC. But it does it in both FSX and P3d. They did show operation at one time before some update of product. This showed up before P3dV3. I have reinstalled the A/C and unplugged and re-plugged the yoke, no joy. Ideas ? Thank You,
  10. Greetings I have the same problem with the P3d 737. No overhead panel lights. Minor label lights come on. The switch rotates but no light comes on. Thank You, Wayne L Pierce
  11. Edmundo, Your FSX config is in your C:\Users\*yourname*\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\FSX. It is a hidden file and you need to turn on hidden files in your control panel config system for your computer to see it and use it. The saitek problem is a conflict with the FS control programming and your Saitek programming. Do not use the the SAITEK program. It is no good. Your FS program is assigning your funcitons by itself and need to be deleted manually within FSX. Use the menu and go to the control settings and you have to delete all references to any and all joystick in all categories. It take a long time. And you should get if you do not have a paid version of FSUIPC which will allow you to configure your joyticks, and yoke within it to operate. I works much better. This will take time and make sure you save all the files which have the settings as things will get messed up by default in FSX at times. The Spad works well with my saitek multipanel. BTW I do not use Saitek yokes or throttles anymore. They have worn out and quickly. I now use a commercial product for flight training, but the idea is the same. Good Luck
  12. Well I fixed my starting problem here. I took a look at the forums and gathered what others were saying and I used the MAAM-SIM forum and the DCA forum and put together the following config for my MAAM-SIM DC3 and c-47.I have not had a starting problem since for FSX. I don't have to load another airplane when starting FSX like i used to do. I don't have to put the Frame rates below 25. There were a couple of little changes to the config suggested and I put them together and for me it now works. I have been without manually startable engines for some time.Here is my config. not too much different, just a few little changes from the default.[GeneralEngineData]engine_type=0Engine.0=8.333333,-10.800, -1.250000Engine.1=8.333333, 10.800, -1.250000fuel_flow_scalar=.97 //0.94min_throttle_limit=0.02master_ignition_switch=1max_contrail_temperature=-25 [piston_engine]power_scalar=0.89max_rpm_mechanical_efficiency_scalar=1.0idle_rpm_mechanical_efficiency_scalar=1.0max_rpm_friction_scalar=1.0idle_rpm_friction_scalar=1.0cylinder_displacement=131compression_ratio=6.7number_of_cylinders=14max_rated_rpm=2700max_rated_hp=1200.0fuel_metering_type=1cooling_type=0normalized_starter_torque=1.5 //0.6turbocharged=1max_design_mp=52.3min_design_mp=8.0critical_altitude=4760emergency_boost_type=2emergency_boost_mp_offset=6emergency_boost_gain_offset=10fuel_air_auto_mixture=0auto_ignition=0Thanks, A really happy Wayne
