  1. Very well described why this is an important feature! Anyone has any news or rumors regarding this?
  2. Just purchased Rex Weather force, but I don't understand how to enable historical weather. It is greyed out in the program. I can only use live weather or DWP (dynamic). How can I enable historical weather?
  3. I am a new user and loving the program! However, when I use the grammar help, the mic picks me up just fine. But when I try to send using PTT, nothing happens. I have to use the sayit button instead. What can the problem be?
  4. That might have been it! I did what you suggested and now it seems to work. Hopefully it will continue to do so. Thanks for the help! /Bjorn Wettergren
  5. No I havn't change any settings at all. In fact I haven't used the FSX-computer since this summer. I have that computer only for FSX (and add ons). So it has just been standing here... When I started it yesterday I had to upgrade Active Sky as there had been a patch since last time, also Windows wanted a bunch of updates. And of course I downloaded the latest AIRAC from Navigraph for both PDMG and PFPX. But other than that I havn't changed any settings. I am loading from a panel state that I have set up and used before. Today, I tried to load from a different panel state that I call cold and dark (and that is when it got 0000Z, yesterday it was some other fake time that didn't make sense at all). Is it even possible to load the NGX without a panel state? I mean, either it is the default from PMDG or some other that you can choose as default. Should I try to load a different state or to load the aircraft in any other way? The normal way is that I load FSX. I choose the NGX model I want to fly. Then I put in the Airport and time and then I just go fly. Active Sky takes care of my weather and Radar Contact does my ATC. I have been doing this the same way all the time and it has worked wonders, until now. Well, in fact I kind of like this "feat" with the count down, maybe Boeing should look into that. No, of course I rather want it to be as realistic as possible. So I really appreciate any suggestions. /Björn Wettergren
  6. Thanks for the quick response! I experienced a twist of this today. Today the FMC says 0000Z. And instead of showing the actual time, it shows time TO the waypoint. For example, I am flying from LSZH to ESSA. Instead of showing actual estimated time of arrival in the PROG page, it showed 0200Z when I departed and then it started to count down towards 0000Z. And meanwhile, the captains clock is showing the correct time, as is the FMC in the POS INIT page. The MDF map view also counts down and shows time TO the next waypoint, not expected time OVER the next waypoint. Now, I havn't been using my NGX for about six months, but I don't remember it working like this, I remember the FMC to show the acutal UTC time, not a count down. Am I wrong?
  7. Today I launched a flight for the first time in about six months. It's great to be back. Not having had the time to fly due to a lot of work, I sure have been missing my NGX! However, I noticed a problem that I haven't encountered before: I made a flight now in the evening (real time) with the NGX, about 19:00-20:40 UTC IRL. However, I simulated a flight from this morning departing at 05:20UTC and arriving about an hour later. So that is the time that I set FSX to. I also used Active Sky Next with the same historical time. But suddenly I realized that the FMC displayed the wrong time. The clock to my left in the captains seat showed the correct historical time that I had set in the FSX menu, but the FMC said it was about 1140UTC when I looked in the LEGS or PROG page. It got weirder as well, because when I clicked on INIT I got the correct historical time. So it was just the LEGS page and PROG page as well as the MDF that shoved the faulty time. Does anyone know why this is? It seems like a bug to me, but sometimes this NGX is so real that things like this is "suppose" to happen. Any suggestions? /Bjorn Wettergren, Sweden
  8. Today when I flew I suddenly got an error message from ASN that said that my computer clock was set in the future. ASN then shut down. When I restarted ASN, I realized that ASN tought that the actual time was 11:10 UTC, when it was 11:30 UTC in real life. I continued have this error and the only way to get through it was to set historical time to any time before 11:10 UTC. What can the issue be? Is there some kind of server error or is my installation corrupt in some way?

    SOP

    Thanks for the reply. I don't really understand that rule, what do you mean by sign the post? Anyway, I am a legal customer and I have bought the captains pack with the manuals, and read them. But maybe I was a bit unclear in my question. What I am looking for is the procedures that is connected to flying an airline jet (in my example SAS). I am not talking about the normal procedures or supplemental procedures. What I meant was the SOP that is happening around the cockpit. I like to imagine what is happening, it gives me a better immersion. So what I am looking for is the SOP to learn the procedures boarding time, boarding complete, how the cabin secure message is delivered, type of cabin warning system (for instance SAS is using chimes, not spoken warning prior takeoff or landing), that sort of thing. Is that possible to read somewhere?

    SOP

    I love flying the PMDG NGX and I mostly simulate flying SAS routes. However, I am longing for to get to know real (or closer to real) life SOP. I realize that the SOP is company specifik, but what does an SOP look like in general? And where is my best shot to see one without becoming a professional pilot? I am very sorry for the triple post. WiFi error...

  13. Bumping this thread. Is there any info on what equipment the SAS 737NG has?
  14. Ok, thanks Pete. I will donload that newer version. But that won't solve my problem with runway 08 being closed, will it? Is there anyway for me to change this? And by the way, 01L is used for landings alot, so I would like to change that too if I could...
  15.

Might this be the problem? How can I change this?
