  1. Hi epvanhunnik, You need to tune the ILS frequency by going to the NAV/RAD page, entering it in the scratch pad and then moving it to the special ILS line on that page on the lower left (not on the VOR1 line). Click where it says "PARK." Mike
  2. Hi Paul 12, For Question B: If you are using FSX box, not steam version, find FSX.cfg and add the following line under [Graphics]: HIGHMEMFIX=1 See NGX Introductory document page 0.00.22. I don't understand your first question. Mike Also make sure that in FSX under Display>Graphics "Advanced Animations" is checked.
  3. Hi Jean-Marie, It looks like you have not logged into ACARS. This is required in the QOT but not the NGX or 777. Please read REQUEST SEND / RTE SELECT, Introduction document, page 165. Mike
  4. Glad it's working. You only needed to delete the one file ARPT_RWY.dat; you didn't need to reinstall the whole Airac 1906 (unless you deleted the entire NAVDATA folder, which was also unnecessary). Mike
  5. Try deleting the file ARPT_RWY.dat found in the folder: ...\FSX\PMDG\NavData It is used by the 777 and 747 but not the 737. It will rebuild the next time you start up the 747 or 777. Mike
  6. Seems to have caught the attention of one "star." Mike
  7. I am hoping our star painters will take note that British Airways is planning to repaint some of its 747-400s in retro liveries, starting with BOAC: https://ukaviation.news/british-airways-to-paint-747s-in-retro-liveries/ Mike
  8. Just to add to the previous responses: If you over use the brakes, the brake temp followed by melted, flattened tires, happens even if you have failures turned off. To fix, you need to cool the brakes before changing the tires or the tires will just melt again. Mike
  9. I filed a ticket with PMDG and they recommend a complete uninstall/reinstall of the 747-800 (if installed) and the 747-400. It worked for me! Mike
  10. Hi Chris, Out of the blue, I am having the same problem as the OP. It is with the payload. It shows 1st class maximum payload of 437/10924, Business, 283/70976, Econ, 266/66512. GW 5313.5 KG, Load, 7369.6% of capacity. I started with my own Ground Power panel state, and at first there was no problem. But when I clicked on SET MAX I got these bizarre numbers. I removed my own panel state but this made the problem show up right from the start. (The initial symptom is that the plane starts hopping around -- undoubtedly because it is grossly overloaded). Problem first noticed with just-downloaded Cathay 2013 livery (KGs). I've tried w/ the PMDG default RR & GE liveries of the 744. The T7 works fine parked at same gate at LLBG. I loaded from new FSX (Steam) each time I tried this, default trike showing in opening window. I never switched liveries w/out restarting. OC shows 744 & 748 up to date. Windows X Dell laptop w/ I7-7700, NVidia GTX 1050. The only thing I've installed recently is GSX free version that comes w/ FSDT sceneries. This is really bizarre. Mike
  11. Hi Yossi, Unless you have a very good understanding of how aliasing textures works (as well as the entries in the aircraft.cfg file as others have said), I suggest you leave the texture files with "PMDG" or "common" in them alone. Some of them may be shared by other liveries. Mike
  12. Hi Jordan, Try deleting ARPT_RWY.dat in FSX>PMDG>Navdata. It will rebuild the next time you load the 777 (or 747). If that doesn't work, here are two threads to read through: Mike
  13. Hi Eric, Assuming P3D has a similar built-in map to FSX, what frequency is showing on the map? Also, are you sure you don't have another scenery or AFCAD for KSEA? Mike
  14. Searching "KSEA" in the AVSIM library, P3D - Scenery, I find 1) free scenery by Robert Catherall, but for P3DV2. So I don't know whether it will work in P3DV4. Robert adapted Ray Smith's FSX scenery for P3D I have Ray's scenery for SEATAC and many other airports; he is a very reliable designer of freeware scenery for FSX 2) a very recent demo version of Drzewiecki Design's SEATAC that says it will work in P3DV4 and is fully functional, with some limitations. I also have to wonder whether you have some added scenery or AFCAD for KSEA that is causing problems. Try searching your entire P3D folder for "Ksea" and see if anything comes up that looks like addon scenery. If you find something but are not sure, you can check back here. Mike
  15. Hi Jonathan, Just to be clear, are you not seeing ANY runways in the departure or approach windows of the CDU, no matter what airport? Or are you seeing some runways for some airports but not others? I don't have P3D but I believe the file structure is the same for navdata as in FSX. What do you see in the following two folders: [P3D_TOP_LEVEL]/PMDG/Navdata and [P3D_TOP_LEVEL]/PMDG/SIDSTARS? BTW, ARPT_RWY.dat doesn't affect the NGX. Mike
