  1. Good read there. Maybe just one single correction. When you derate the engines you'll use a little more fuel than whith the full thrust setting. This is due to the fact that jet engines are most efficient at max thrust. Hence you do not derate to lower fuel costs. Save engine wear is a legit reason. You do not necessarily have to buy TOPCAT to make Takeoff Performance Calculations. Search avsim file library for the "b737 dispatch sheet" which is an excel spreadsheet that will also help you determine performance and derates.
  2. You get the numbers from the approach charts. As sugested you really should read the manuals. Fs2crews as well as the NGX's. And try searhing for help on youtube regarding how to read airpprt charts. There's quite a few good tutorials out there.
  3. Hi. I'd just like to say that I would be very happy with a feature like that including FO matching the heading when in control. During my flights you can often see me, the captain, enjoy the inflight movie with my wife. I allready use you have control for that.
  4. It seems that the NGX short panel state is older than sp1d it self. Its dated 2012 even though it was re-released with sp1d. The use of that panel state gave me failures. The default panel state is dated 2015. So I took that one, which has engines running, and shut the aircraft down and saved a new panel state which I use as default and with which I haven't had any problems.
  5. Follow up on my strange crash to desktop: Not knowing excactly what information is exchanged between FS2Crew and FSX it was very clear to me, that the crash was related to the load sheet dialouge. I think it must have been related to a faulty NGX panel state. It looks like some of the panel states that were provided with the NGX sp1d installation were pre-sp1d and didn't work correctly. As I had used the "long" panel state I might have triggered the crash somehow. Another indication of the faulty panel state was the fact that the "aircond" and the "fuel" warning lights were illuminated without reason. Anyway, what I did was to use the default NGX panel state (which was updated with the sp1d installation) and then shut the aircraft down. Then I saved the panel state. This new panel state has worked without crashes or strange warning lights. Problem seems to be solved! So: Beware that panel states other than default might be corrupted. If you look in the PMDG NGX folder you can actually tell that the panel state files for the most part are dated 2012.
  6. Why don't you have a glance at the other topics in this forum?
  7. Good idea. Why didn't I think of that?!? Thanks. I'll try tonight and report back. I was using the EU voices.
  8. Does anyone else have the crash in preflight at t minus 8 minutes when the load sheet arrives? I have a clean install of ngx sp1d and fs2crew. The crash happens every time i do the full preflight and I have no other problems with fs2crew. I get the sp1c warning but no sdk error.
  9. I had the SDK failure until i removed and reinstalled FS2Crew. Everything except one thing works flawlessly until now. I just did a whole flight, and everything was normal except for one thing.... FSX crashes in preflight at the same time every time. It's when I recieve the load sheet. But if I do not do the preflight, I have no problems at all. I just start from the before start checklist without trouble.
  10. I had the same problem until I did a complete uninstall and reinstall of fs2crew and emergency. Now it will read the panel coŕectly. But now I have another problem. Whenever I get the load sheets the sim will crash hard! No response for minutes and the finaly an error message and fsx quits.
  11. If your route planner includes weather information and average winds, you can enter that right below where you enter your flight level in the FMC. If you planned the flight using a high tail wind factor you might end up with too little fuel aboard. But if you didn't enter wind in the sheet and also didn't do it in the FMC they are supposed to agree. When I made the sheet and the calculations I qualified them by using both the FMC, other available fuel planners as well as some Boeing documentation. Never was any of those sources in agreement. So my goal was to be within 5 percent of the PMDG FMC calculated consumption while still observing the Boeing manuals and performance documents. In other words, the sheet will only rarely be 100 pct correct.
  12. Hi Zachlog, Thanks for your report! Maybe you could telle me a bit more about the planning. What 737 variant did you fly? Did you plan using the same aircraft variant? Did you enter wind information in your plan but not in the FMC? Did you use the same flight altitude in the planning tool and in the FMC? Did you enter the correct flight plan distance which might be longer than the point to point distance? Did you use the same cost index setting? Were you using the same Gross Weight? These factors might explain why you see differences from the tool and the FMC but.... ...Did you try to fly and see if either the tool or the FMC came closest to the real fuel consumption for that flight? Cheers Lasse
  13. It used to be a drop menu in earlier versions. Forgot to change the colour. Will be corrected in the next version. Thanks!
  14. Yes, just push the button reading "pressure" to the left of the barometric pressure cell. It will change unit and convert the pressure.
