  1. Hi, What is the error message in the event viewer?
  2. Hi, Just to clear a doubt, do you turn the mic and the receiver on on the ACP for the VHF1? From cold and dark, all the switches of the ACP are off by default.
  3. Hi, Just a thought since I don't know how the protectction works. Why not issue demo with license key that expires after sometime like it already exists for other software? wouldn't it protect the copy the same way a definitely sold copy is protected? Once your demo free license expires you would have to buy a definitive license or you could not use your copy anymore? What would be the difference with a directly definitive license? Edit: I guess you thought already about that, but just wondering...
  4. Also, in terms of realism: The PMDG 777 with 234 pax is a -200LR. Alitalia doesn't own any aircraft of that model but only -200ER.
  5. Hi Clement, The FD will command the change of level depending on the flight level in the FMCand the altitude entered in the MCP altitude box. Look at your FMA to check in which pitch mode you are. Let's imagine in your case that your are proceeding from your position to the waypoint A with an altitude constraint of FL150, then waypoint B with an altitude constraint of FL100. So if you start with a pitch mode of VNAV PTH or VNAV SPD in your descent and 15000 on the MCP, your aircraft will level off at FL150 and the pitch mode will change to VNAV ALT. In this case, if you just enter 10000 on the MCP, then the FD will still command a level off even if the constraint of the next waypoint is FL100. To continue the descent, you have to push the altitude button of the MCP. However, in the same situation, if you enter 10000 on the MCP before the aircraft starts levelling off, then the pitch mode with remains VNAV PTH. The FD will command a pitch to pass Waypoint A at FL150 (even level off for while if needed) then continue the descent to FL120 once waypoint A is passed. The key here is to understand how the system works and know where you are in terms of VNAV mode to know what to expect.
  6. I'm always willing to help but I'm not good at guess games sorry. If you don't explain what is going wrong with more than two words then don't count on me either.
  7. Hi Dave, Since you give no information whatsoever about what doesn't work we cannot help you... Imagine you call a mechanic and tell him by phone: "Cannot use my car"... How could he help you with no detail? Or an IT guy: "Cannot use my computer"... with no more detail. That's what you are doing in the forum here hoping that someone will read in their crystal ball what is your issue!? We cannot guess what is wrong. Keep in my mind that we cannot look at your screen over your shoulder to see what is going on. So describe your problem or just give up for everybody's sake!
  8. Hi, Considering the rampie with the KLM jacket and the airport alitude, it looks like a KLM freighter flight from Nairobi to Amsterdam (HKJK-EHAM). NADP2 as with an aircraft probably quite heavy. In the sim no matter what the take off thrust is, anyweight over 300T, I would use CLB1 or CLB even if TO thrust is T/O2 + temp. Otherwise the climb rate at CLB2 above 300T is disastrous...
  9. Hi, I'm looking also for the same thing. It was like that with EZDOK, the head moves were related to the orientation of the camera, not to the plane. I like Chaseplane but it just a pain to move the head in the correct way when turned one side or another.
  10. Strange, I never experienced that in hundreds of hours of flight.
  11. Hi, I would think that the nose dive is indirectly the cause of the AP disconnect and not the consequence. Actually you should check if you don't have a button or an axis set to the pitch trim or to the elevator that would command a nose down attitude which would disconnect the AP. The fact it happen repeatedly and during the descent may help orientating the search towards something you press or move during the descent.
  12. Hi Cathy, You are welcome, glad I was able to help. Enjoy!
  13. Hi, Do not uninstall unless PMDGrecommend you to. It is not exactly what you seeing since the aircraft is not dead in your case. However, no activation window may mean an issue with simconnect: https://support.precisionmanuals.com/kb/a111/aircraft-loads-up-dead-no-activation-window-no-landing-gear-simconnect-issue.aspx I'm also looking for a service that may need to be running but I cannot remember which one. I think I read it somewhere in the forum but cannot remember where. I will update here if I find it back. Also don't forget to sign your posts with full names as required on this forum. EDIT: I found the post I was looking for. The service to be checked is Flexnet:
