  1. Scot, tried to DM you about coolsky dc-9 and it said you don’t accept messages. DM me if you need a copy or if it will break the newest version of LINDA. best,
  2. Thanks, Dan. Presumably I should uninstall FS2Crew too? And then run the OC and the NGX once to check it before reinstalling FS2Crew? (I'll post this over there, too, but that seems like the best approach.) Edit: FYI, the reason for this post was there were a bunch of posts about errors, not working afterwards, etc.
  3. Howdy all, After a period of limited simming (and largely using the very awesome Coolsky DC-9 when I do), I've started flying the NGX again. I see that they have discontinued liveries and so on and gone to an operations center (which started with the 777 which I don't have and probably won't buy despite how awesome it apparently is). After searching the forum, it appears I need to re-download the NGX and run the files to update it. Apparently that will delete the liveries I have (which aren't very many) and I'll need to reinstall them and add others, etc. Any other tips or tricks for the unwary anyone can suggest? I use FS2Crew (non-reboot version), LINDA, and GSX, but I can't imagine other than FS2Crew that these would be affected. Suggestions on doing this welcome. Thanks a bunch.
  4. Finally had a chance to recreate from the saved point. It worked, without a hitch. Although I do wonder if there is a bit of an issue where if you don't complete to process such that it goes through the after takeoff check and so forth that it does hang. But, if you don't panic it works fine.
  5. Ha, yes. I freely admit my error. But really couldn't get it to move again using the arrows. I'll try to land again when I can and report back after a proper go around unless you say it's a known issue (which I would doubt). While I still prefer the voice versions, I still like flying this bird with your enhancements.
  6. Howdy all, First, I know this product is older than that old, but I pulled the MD-11 and the FS2Crew add-on out last night for the first time in awhile. Second, I searched this and found another thread but it seemed to get hung up on how it got into GA mode, not getting out. I'm trying to figure out what I did wrong procedurally that I couldn't get the software to advance. Here's what happened: While on final, I accidentally hit my mapped red button and it started the go around sequence. I panicked because it started pulling flaps up at low speed, and I didn't want to stall. Eventually got it stable and flying on the GA path I wanted and went to re-set up the approach. No dice. Couldn't get the FS2Crew to budge into a different mode using the arrows and neither green nor red button did anything. Had to land all alone (sad face). As an additional data point, my GA was a bit of a mess, so I was definitely not doing the correct procedure. So, my question is: does anyone know if FS2Crew will automatically advance back to approach? If so, what's the trigger event that I blew? I guess it's also possible that I crashed the add-on, as it didn't seem to be otherwise working, Although, it did work when I landed and called to disarm slides, so i don't think that's it. Any thoughts? I suppose it could also be a bug where it hangs in GA mode, but I'm betting on pilot error as the mostly likely cause. Thanks in advance. Doug
  7. So, I had a failure of an engine fire. (Cause could have been pilot error, but that's not the question). So, had the alarm go off, pulled the level, discharged the bottle, performed the remaining checklist items.... and nothing. Flame continued unabated and I didn't burn up. Is the extinguishing of the fire modeled/ animated? Clearly burning into a a crisp isn't since I kept flying on one engine with flames from the other one to see what would happen. i would be nice to know if they simulated the recovery as well as the failure. Anyone else had something similar?
  8. Ok, I got the MCP1 to work with 2.6.6 for all aircraft EXCEPT the Q400. I got this error. LUA Error: ....a-cfg/aircrafts/Majestic Dash 8 Q-400/config-hid.lua:3 attempt to index field (068E00510 (a nil value) So then, I deleted (actually renamed) the config.lua file in the linda-cfg folder for the Q400 (this is advice you gave me on a slightly different error I had in an earlier thread. It seems to work now. A couple nits: 1. Saved flights: do not work. I get a string of error messages. Not a big deal. I will try some new flights and saving them to ensure this is just for "old" flights and not some persistent issue. 2. The display is pretty simple, but it works, so I'm ok with that. It beats not working at all.
  9. Are you using 2.6.6 with MCP1? Scott seemed to say that had a display issue which I believe I experienced. Thanks, I don't think a new MCP is likely, but I will tinker with 2.6.3 v.2 and see if I can get that to work with the MCP1 and a version of the module. Maybe I can turn the MCP off if I'm using the Q400. Not ideal, but I have other hardware that I would like to work as well and it appears to. If you happen to fix (or think you have fixed) the MCP1 display issue on 2.6.6, let me know and I can test it for you. Best, Best,
  10. So, a few data points and clarifications here: To be clear, I have the original MCP Combo, the one that is listed as "untested" with v2.6.3 and that we should use 1.13 instead. I couldn't get the q400 module to work at all. I tried an older version of the module (not sure which one) as well as the new one with 1.13. I got an error message every time. I then tried installing versions 2.6.3 and it wouldn't work at all. I even got a display error that was so bad that I thought it had bricked my MCP, but I was able to fix it by a USB unplug/replug. Not sure what to do. I could send the error message (which was something like "60003446") if that would help. If there's an older version of the module you recommend, I'm certainly interested in trying it. I'll even try 2.6.6 if you think that would work. Best, EDIT: I noted there is a "2.6.3 v.2" that fixed the range check error. I don't think I used that one. Is that the one that has been reported to work successfully with the MCP1?
  11. Thanks, Scott. I'll double check, but my recollection is that the 2.6.3 caused the error message with the add-ons I used most. I'll double check when I'm in front my FS rig.
  12. I have been tinkering with my system and noted the Majestic module is missing and I was going to reinstall. I'm kind of confused what to do, since I use the older version of Linda (1.3?) so it will work with my MCP v.1 (2.6.X doesn't seem to work with it.) If I install the current module will it work with the older version of LINDA? (And by "work", I mean function enough to make my MCP usable enough to fly and not cause a CTD everytime.) As an aside, I recently bought the FS2Crew for it, but have not yet installed it. Thanks for any advice.
  13. Scot, Thanks for the help, that was indeed it! This is a rather unconventional bird in its mappings of things and the way it behaves.
  14. I was using Linda 1.1.1 Just upgraded to 1.1.3. Doesn't seem to matter. I have the VRInsight Boeing style MCP (first version). Looking at the list of commands in the first post, it doesn't appear that anyone has been able to isolate the range switching, feature (There's only 4 or 5 positions in the DASH.) A lot of the Autopilot functions also seem to be unavailable. The vertical navigation on this plane seems similar to the J41 (IAS, Alt SEL, etc.)
  15. Howdy all, just bought this craft and loaded the Linda module. It seems like the programming of the bird precludes using a MCP to its full potential. Much of the left side of the MCP (baro, range) and the autopilot (vnav) seems unavailable. I'm happy to go hunting to find other things, but it sounds like others have tried. If there's unexplored hunting, please let me know Best,
