  1. Hi Rthomas18, thanks for the reply. I already set keys for the doors (as i said above) but nothing appends. Door still won't open :( :mad: Please, no other ideas? :Praying: Thanks Joakkino
  2. Anyone? please, i'm still waiting and the doors won't open! Please! Thanks ps. sorry for double post
  3. Sorry, i forgot to specify that the APU is runnig with GEN1 in ON position and GEN2 has AVL light. Doors won't open anyway. But I'm confused about this: utility buttons must be enabled? And electronic buttons (those below APU GENs and Battery button) must also be enabled? Thanks
  4. I also have a problem with all doors. I read many thread about this, but it won't works for me. What i do: -Set admin rights to my FSX installation folder (just added my user name and check all boxex; -set admin rights for execution of fsx.exe; -assign key bindings for the following actions: Doors>All entry left, All entry right, Upper deck, Entry L1 and Upper Deck L. -check duplicate key binding between game commands and PMDG menu/keyboard commands: all is fine; About point 3, i set theese actions for testing, because i wasn't able neither to open a single door. If you have any suggestion, please write Thanks in advance
  5. I don't know... But i'm sure that, before posting here, i turn my engines on (in simple terms), taxi to the runway (in the opposite side of the airport), lift off, flown across first 4-6 waypoints and the APU was still running. So have passed several minutes, no? Solution. Maybe... Yesterday night, i think i've found a solution for the problem: while taxing to the runway, i switched the battery off (apu selector in off position) and then turned back on; i tried to move apu in ON position (skipping start) and the apu was no longer running. I don't know if this is abnormal or not, but for me it worked. At least this time. If this isn't the right solution, plaese do not hesitate to explain your solutions. Thanks Regards
  6. Hello everyone! I read that some users can't start up their APU. I have the exact opposite problem: when the engines of my (pmdg) 747 are running, i switch the APU selector to OFF but EICAS still say me "apu runnig" and if i turn the APU to on skipping the start step, generators power is avaiable. Only one time i was able to turn it off (luckily): i simply made the switch become crazy, turning it in all 3 positions (off, on, start). But i know that this isn't the right way. How can i solve it? Thanks Regards ps. i edited the config file, so the apu burns fuel from my tanks and, as you can understand, i absolutely don't want keep apu running in flight (besides the fact that it would be useless).
  7. oooooooook guys! I'm happy to announce you that, also using your suggestions, i finally understand how to do. It's easy: when you create a flight that's too long for the tanks of your plane (i.e. A to B), simply find an intermediate airport (i.e. C) and program the FMC to that destination (from A to C) and flight it. Also while in flight, you can program RTE2 in FMC: in departure field set airport C and destination set airport B. Of course you can use only RTE1 to set the 2nd part of the flight (obviously program the FMC when you land at airport C), but it could means a loss of time Point of view. And yes, i know the bug in RTE2 which make STEP function inoperative. About this, any suggestion fixing that? I tried to activate RTE2 but it won't anyhow works. grrrrr! Thanks for help and i'm waiting forward for an answer.
  8. Hi Kevinh! thanks for the reply! Well, the original flight plan was PAEI-SCIP and the FMC naturally noticed me with the insufficient fuel message. When i reached "low" fuel quantity, i decided to add some (2, 3 or 4 waypoints can't remember exactly) to legs page to go to SCEL, the intermediate airport. So i left AP and Lnav enabled; only Vnav was disconnected because i used v/s to descend. When i was heading the SCEL's runway (i think rw17), i disconnected AP for a final approch and at about 100ft i turned off A/T. Then landed, No other setting were edited in FMC, just add those waypoints. So, that i shoul edit in FMC before takeoff from SCEL is create a nwe flight plan from SCEL to SCIP. Right? I tried to turn all autopilots as suggested by Scandinavian but when i take off to go to SCIP, all AT engages but don't work. I fully drive the plane with AP on without any warnig message. And... thanks for explaining about v/s in Vnav mode! I finally understood. ps. in a similar cases, how should i proceed about programming FMC? Using my problem for example: flight plan from PAEI to SHIP; when i need to reful, i must enter in flight plan the new destination (SCEL), execute it and land. Before takeoff, program the FMC flight plan from SCEL to SHIP. This all in flight plan page (and naturally adjust/set the legs page). Am i on the right way? Many thanks!!
  9. Hi Scandinavian, thanks for the reply! I tried your suggestion. Here's what i did: land, turn all AP off (including A/T and FD), configure the FMC with the new settings (including MCP), re-enable FD, A/T, Lnav and when i press Vnav the plane pull all throttle! Full power! So i decided to enable it together with the AP at 1000ft. But without positive effects. The plane continues his climb at about over 5000ft of v/s even though i set 8000ft as altitude target with 1200 v/s. Also, if i control the plane with all AP engaged, i do not get noticed with the classical warnig chat (i suppose you know what i'm talking about). About Lnav, i can't say if it works or not because the waypoint is straight heading runway. Above, i forgot to explain a pair of things: 1) when i perform the variation, i just added the waypoints into legs page; flight straight to the airport and the approch was visual and manual (yes, i carried the plane down myself: not bad, but i was too high so i must pull the nose down and down, about 3200ft of v/s) 2) i use FSX with no other addons. Only some PMDGs products (though i always fly with the 747) Thanks!
  10. Hello everyone! I just join this forum and i wanna premise that i'm not english, so i'll do my best as you all can understand what i'm talking about Let's start from the beginnig: i choose a flight too long for the 747's tanks so i decided to perform a variation of my flight plan with the purpose of landing, refuel (unfortunately only by pmdg menu), take off and continue my flight from i interrupted it. And here is the problem! Before take off i always activate flight director, auto-throttle, Lnav and Vnav and when i'm about 1000ft i engage the autopilot. This procedure works fine IF i flight from an airport to another one without land at a 3rd intermediate airport. As i say above, i landed to an intermediate airport for refuel my 747 and when i take off the autopilot engages but when i lift off it does nothing. The plane flies as if I had the controls, ignoring the autopilot: pitch up/down also over 3000ft of v/s and doesn't follow even the HDG. Same thing with the altitude: i set in the MCP 8000ft and the plane continues his climb, sometimes raising stall! All autopilot leds are on but the plane answer at my commands and when i control the plane and the classic warning that appers when you try to "drive" the plane with the autopilot engaged DOES NOT appers. I must say that i never had any type of problem with this plane: it precisely follows the flight path tough the v/s with Vnav engaged is extremely high (often i use the v/s to raise my FL - i.e. FL330 with v/s 1200ft/m) I hope all people read here above can understand So, anyone could help me please?
