    Low oil quantity

    Ya, I was referring to the ground maintenance page on the 777. I wish we had that for the 737 as well. And weather radar and realistic fuelling would be super to........................ lol Just sayin. Anyway, thanks again!

    Low oil quantity

    Ahhhhhhhhhhh that's where I am going wrong. I could have sworn there was a menu item in there somewhere where you could top off the oil like in the 777. But I guess I must have been thinking about the 777 the whole time. Suddenly things are clear to me lol Thanks Kyle, appreciate the help.

    Low oil quantity

    Ok, stupid question (as I am looking through every menu on there) does it matter that I am in the air while I am doing it? Or is it there but you can't use it? Or is it completely gone while airborne? Because I just can't find it man.

    I can find the FS Actions section etc. But I cannot for the life of me find out where it references how to top off the oil. I thought that was introduced in a service pack later, and not from the original? Right now I just do a service to the engines because I can't find it in the CDU (which is really frustrating me, because I know I found it before).

    Hey Kyle, I hunted and hunted, I can't find it. I am wondering if my manual didn't update when I updated the plane? Or maybe I am just blind, more than likely just blind.

    PMDG MD11 reinstallation

    Sounds to me like he has it, it won't let him install it. I think a ticket to support should fix it up? I have never had the problem, but then I don't have the MD-11 either.

    FMC update

    That's what I have been doing as well.

    Is it possible to reset pressurization failure in flight?

    Did you set your packs and bleeds up properly so it re-pressurized everything? Human error really isn't a failure. Cept for the plane full of vegetable passengers I suppose.

    FSX has stopped working after wind request

    This happened to me as well last night, only no message, just a complete FSX freeze, had to use control panel to shut it down. Little frustrating, 4 hours into a 6 hour flight.

    INVALID FORCAST UPLINK

    Well thank you sir, that makes complete sense. I appreciate it!

    INVALID FORCAST UPLINK

    Just an FYI, I don't load my flightplan into ASN, and the FMC grabs the winds just fine. I to am having troubles with the descent forecast, but I just put them in manually, no biggy.

    INVALID FORCAST UPLINK

    Don't put the WX file in the PMDG WX folder anymore. Load your f/p in the FMC and then request your weather. Not sure if that's the actual problem, but that's how I did mine and it worked like a charm.
