    Turning Off Heading Select

    Try it the way I have outlined and you will find out it works. I just did it on a takeoff that has no SID out of FNLU. After several vectors I was cleared direct to OPAPO. Rather than try to get on a intercept heading, I double clicked OPAPO, executed, pressed LNAV. The aircraft turned to OPAPO and that was it.

    Turning Off Heading Select

    Make certain that the waypoint you want to fly to is the first waypoint on the ACT RTE 1 LEGS. Left double click the waypoint, press execute, press VNAV immediately. The aircraft will now fly to the waypoint. Forget HEADING SELECT it has been disarmed.. You do not need to be on an intercept heading if you press LNAV immediately after clicking on the execute button.

  7. I am curios. What was the cost index you were using? What did the FMC show on the ECON DES page for speed?

    777 Interior and Exterior Lights

    I never wrote that everyone is having this issue. If they were, there would be a load of topics on this Forum and the General Forum about the lighting for the 777. If you mean the Beta Team I have already done that and drew a couple of replies - none helpful.

    777 Interior and Exterior Lights

    Chris I did not have the above line in fsx.cfg. When I first noticed the problem was right after I installed Beta1 of the 744 V3. I uninstalled the current version of the 744 V3. It made no difference; however, Beta1 is a long way from the current version. I will avoid taxing, takeoff, and landing during dusk and dawn. Thanks for the help.

    Chris Was the above line in his fsx.cfg file before or after the rebuild? In the [GRAPHICS] section? Thanks Michael Cubine

    If I come up with a solution I will let you know what it is. Don't do anymore installations as they seldom solve any issue.

    777 Interior and Exterior Lights

    Everyday is something new with the lighting system. I will describe as of today. Dusk. Landing lights and taxi lights do not illuminate runways or taxiways. From the exterior view the lights are on. In the cockpit a light comes on with the intensity of low dome light . Pan up to the dome lights and the bulbs are not on. Turn dome light control to dim and then back to off. The light sources disappears. Night. Dome light is only dim. There is no bright . Both dim and bright are of the same intensity. Dawn. Same as dusk with the exception of the light source. If the dome light switch is not used to turn it off when it comes on at dusk, it will disappear at dawn. Any ideas would be appreciated. Thank you.

    Why no V Speeds in GE aircraft?

    On some 744s' the GR WT ADV on the PERF INIT page has a < sign. If you see this be sure to click the line select button beside the GR WT ADV otherwise you will never get a V Speeds. This tripped me up during Beta testing until someone told me how to do it.

    Why no V Speeds in GE aircraft?

    Are you writing about V Speeds in he FMC or on the PFD speed tape? If they are not on the speed tape you need to click the line select buttons next to the speeds in the FMC on the Takeoff page to accept the speeds and send them to the PFD speed tape. If they never appear in the FMC the above replys should answer your question.

    Real life 777 cockpit video from LH cargo

    That is an excellent idea. I have used the PFPX server for winds aloft. I didn't realize that PFPX would pull the historical winds from Active Sky. I will need try that.
