  1. So what is a failures module? Forgive my ignorance but comparing this to the NGX would that be service based failures, concequence based or timed/random. I would think timed/random should be implemented, like every 10 hours like how it can be on the other PMDG aircraft. Service based would be even better. I certaintly hope some kind of failures system will be implemented. I enjoy long flights with these aircraft and after 100 or so hours it starts getting boring unless you know something might go wrong over the middle of the ocean, at night, in IMC, in turbulence, while your in the back with the stewardesses. Notice I did not say flight attendant, that would be an insult on a DC6!
  2. The sent me a link to the demo extension with the fix for me but the link just takes me to generic domain. No biggie, they are so quick I'll probably have the link again in a couple minutes. It's like there in front of their computers all the time! Hopefully this version will work with RC4 but even if it does not I will still probably buy it just for the FO interaction. Inherit limitations with hand flying with the flight director make it inordinately difficult to keep the FD syched by the MCP due to needing a free hand to change the MCP all the time during a buisy aproach. Being able to tell the FO to set the MCP windows with verbal commands allows a much more enjoyable hand fly experience with the NGX and allows being able to do it with the FD. Before I just turned the FD off when hand flying because sometimes I would not have time to change the MCP and it was disorienting to have it showing erroneouse command indications. This alone is worth 35 bucks.
  3. It is the same. Sounds like they will have the fix for it tomorow. Just a testament to FS++ support, only 2 guys with this problem and they worked to fix it anyway. I am definately going to buy it. You know what else was the coolest thing. I flew an approach into Pheonix Mesa yesteday hand flown from 10,000 while able to use the FD the whole way because I had another hand free to synch the FD to the command bars with the MCP by giving verbal MCP commands to the FO. This was something that was a pain before because of having to mouse click the fields in the MCP while hand flying the aircraft with the FD. Something that is totally easy to do in real life but happens to be a simmism.That in itself is worth the 35 bucks.
  4. Yea, I have read everything. The FO understands me fine so its not an understanding thing. The support guys have had a few with this problem and are working on it.Thanks for the time however.
  5. There is no MCE table per say. I also have the latest RC4 and all keys are default. I think I may have to update from FSUIPC 4.754 to 4.758 and see how that works. One fix was to click use multi line display window which is checked so unfortunately I am one of the fortunate very few with this problem. Got 9 days left to get the demo working before I decide on buying. So far was pretty cool untill I sighed into the mic and the FO turned of both IRS's! But I am sticking with it, I think it has potential.
  6. Thanks for the relies guys. I decided to try the demo and am having some interface problems with RC4. This may not be the best place to put this but see if any of you guys know:Hi,I followed all instructions. Do not have RC4 on a network, have all key commands at default, no shift or ctrl. Added line to MSI use radar contact=1 and it found .exe. Plus all other instructions in your manual. I load RC4 first then MCE and have use RC4 checked. The FO can understand me very well but when I click the mic to call clearance and use the proper phraseology (I am a real corporate pilot), the RC4 controller does not respond. I am holding the mic down and get the tone the whole time. I have the RC4 options screen as per your manual as well. I can say get radar contact info and my RC4 callsign will apear in your UI but no other flight plan info is there. I am loading a RC4 IFR flight plan up but the MCE UI says free flight with VFR and question marks under departure and destination. This latter problem however may not be correlated to the former for this reason: The first time I did have all my flight plan data in the MCE UI and it still did not work.VHF 1 is tuned to correct frequency.Again in a nutshell a 2 fold problem.1. RC4 controller does not say anything back. RC4 screen does not flash, scroll or anything. I still read options for get weather and contact clearance delivery. When I use the number on the keyboard I am able to get my clearance so RC4 is working. It seems that RC4 is not hearing me or sensing mic button PPT press or something. It is totally disconnected from MCE although as I said above it should work because all the other interfaces between MCE and RC4 are working. And the FO totally understands me.2. Cannot get MCE to see my RC4 IFR flight plan but it does see my RC4 callsign.I am using the demo and am very seriouse about buying this. I am not a freebee guy. I just need to see if I can get it to work on my system.Thank youMarcMaybe some of you may know my problemThanks
  7. Thanks.So you mean you tune the radios for him or you do the readbacks and have him do the tuning? I was watching a you tube video and the guy was saying agknowladge to the FO when he wanted the FO to read back ATC instructions. I thought that was a little wierd. I am also thinking of Vox ATC but it sounds like there is a chance it will not work with my system or Mytraffic X judging from many of their forum posts. I'll have to try the demo.Anyway this you tube vide was interesting because RC4 ATC was giving intructions and the actual person was telling the MCE FO to agnowledge the instructions and so the voice was from MCE. So it seems to me they could have coded it to use the MCE voice w/o prompting from the player. I'll have to watch it again to be sure about that.In fact, he even had it rigged so that the FO would pause the checklist to agnowledge ATC instruction, amazing. For me though this is not ideal because in a real airline the FO handles comms on his own and does not need prompting from the captain each time. Unless of course you have 2 different voices going. This actually may not be so bad, I would have to try it out.
  8. I have been thinking of getting MCE (Multi Crew Experience) with a headset to try this stuff out. For anyone that has this setup..My style is to have the FO handle the coms (tuning radios and replying to ATC) the entire flight from cleared for takeoff. If I am running MCE can I hand over the comms to the FO and hear him talk to ATC in the Vox voice or will I hear the RC4 voice I assigned him or worse, both. Reason I ask is that if I am doing the voice communications with the FO like checklists and then I hear a different voice when he talks to ATC it will not be very realistic. This may be something I can live with but I am not sure at this point.Thanks
  9. I understand clearly that profits=motivation. This is how the world works and is the most magnificent and functional aspect of capitalism. As a flight instructor I cannot make a living but I love the job. As a tree service owner I make good dough but hate it. One pays the bills and sucks and the other sort of pays the bills and is fun. I have to honest that I am more motivated to trim tree's because I am very motivated to not get kicked out of my house and to put food on the table by providing this service to people for substantial profit. I would rather be a full time CFI but then I might be out on the street and would be a homeless CFI and would smell so bad no one would want to fly with me. These guys at level D are doing this as a labor of love I imagine and with all labors of love they take longer simply because they are more motivated to put food on the table because without food they would not have the energy to program such a FANTASTIC product. So give them a break, this is not some big corporation that can afford to pay a group of programmers full time salary to push it out in 6 months. This is their passion and with most passions in life it does not pay the bills.The family thing is a good priority to have as well.
  10. Forgive my ignorance but how do you open his .vib files? I am intensly interested in figuring out how to properly set up the sway and vibration profiles. The 800 I set up worked out great by trial and error but when I set up the 600 with import from the 800 it does not come out the same way. I have way to much head sway. These Nick files that I downloaded are .vib, how do we open them? I know I sound really stupid but I have never heard of a .vib file. Don't laugh, because I am.I tell you though this EZCA stuff with the PMDG is very nice. So very hard to understand though.
