  1. I'm not sure I understand what you're asking, so I'll answer both questions I interpreted here. If your question is whether you need to buy the NGX itself from PMDG in order to use FS2Crew, then yes you do as it's an add on to the plane itself. If your question is whether you need the old version of FS2Crew NGX to use the reboot, no it's a completely new product and in fact you can't buy the old one anymore.
  2. I know, but it is the closest. I still find myself responding to certain checklist items that the FO says now.. :Whistle:
  3. Voice is on, nothing muting the mic. Ran training again, that seems to have done the trick. Thanks!
  4. I seem to be having a different issue with SP1D and Fs2Crew, the program isn't hearing me. I did un-install and re-install, and made sure the right headset was selected. The FO does his preflight flow ok but when I call for the Preflight checklist nothing happens, and nothing comes up in the green bar.
  5. I think the recommendation to use the Concorde hotkeys in FS were from the FS9 version of the NG. You can set a hotkey from within the CDU of the NGX.
  6. Sounds like it's one of 3 possibilities: 1) F10 could be set to something else in FS, and overriding the selection (not likely unless you set it to something else, by default it's a shortcut to the 2D cockpit view) Actually, I think that the HotKeySelect= function overrides the setting within FS so that's not likely. 2) Most likely it's to do with Windows file permissions. It's very possible that you don't have permission to edit the file. Look and see if that line you added is still there after you put it in, save and close it, start FS and load a flight in the 777. If the line has disappeared, then that's the cause. Let us know here if it is and we'll get it sorted for you. (be sure to quote this post and I'll get an email, I haven't been checking here every day) 3) Verify FS was NOT running when you edited the file?
  7. Out of curiosity, where did you get this information? The last I heard they were sticking with the 737-800 (and max-8 eventually), and getting the A319 and A321 (but not A320) because each of those give the best performance / economics for what they want out of each sized aircraft. I believe they had originally said otherwise when placing the order a few years ago, but since changed the specifics.
  8. I have it and didn't make it. Check the avsim library
  9. Then I'm not sure what you're looking for, one of the older V Australia liveries (Star tail with old name, hybrid Virgin Australia titles/V Australia tail) ?
  10. Did you check here? http://precisionmanuals.com/pages/downloads/liveries.html Not sure what the reg is, but there's a Sun Country (Transavia Leased) on the list of -800's
  11. I don't remember where I learned it, but as far as I know there's only 4 you can use: F9=1 F10=2 F11=3 F12=4 Of course these all have default assignments in FSX, but setting them for something in an individual aircraft overrides the defaults, which are: F9=VC F10=2D cockpit (main panel, empty in the 777 which is why I used F10 for the overhead) F11=locked spot view F12=top down view Glad to help!
  12. Even though the ZIGGY arrival does intersect the ILS at PETIS, it's pretty much impossible to do due to terrain and speed. Normally ATC will vector you South, then East, then North, and finally back West to the ILS. I've heard this referred to as "toilet bowl sequencing" for obvious reasons :lol: The ZIGGY into ONT, and the KAYOH into SNA are the 2 most difficult arrivals to control in SoCal. Speed control is absolutely critical on both.
