    Master Caution after update

    The problem was resolved by following the advice above. I had not deleted the panel states in the first uninstall. Jordan Koulov

    I did the full uninstall and reinstall, I will uninstall and do it again tomorrow.

    Master Caution after update

    I'd like to start by thanking the PMDG team for updating the 737, the weather radar integration is a fantastic feature, and something I would have gladly paid for. I have an issue with the master caution system, every time I hit "recall" I get a caution for the fuel panel on the captain's side and an anti-ice one on the copilots side. This happens in flight and on the ground, and none of the amber lights are illuminated on the corrisponding panels. I'm not sure if this is related to the update, but It never happened before.

    Could I fly a real Boeing 737-800?

    A 737 is a bit of stretch, but finding out if you can actually fly a Cessna is as easy as saving up $200 and finding a flight school. In my personal experience, I found that I was much off with the flight sim experience that I did have; I had no trouble taxing the aircraft on the ground. However, had my instructor not intervened, I would have probably stalled 20 feet above the runway on my first landing. Your experience may vary, I encourage anyone who hasn't tried to go find out.
  5. It's really best if you do as much reading as possible on the subject, rote memorization of procedures is not a good way to learn to fly. With that said, I was taught to always use the carb heat when you are outside of the green arc on the RPM gauge. So in effect, for approach and landing. You'll want to turn it off in the event of a go-around, because, as you've noticed, it robs power. In the real aircraft, during a go-around you would push both the power full forward, and the carb heat full forward (off) in the same motion. The above oversimplification has its limitations. Depending on conditions, carb icing is possible even with full power. Jordan

    Getting the 777 just made me love the NGX more

    I love both, but find myself flying the NGX more often. I love the mechanical nature of it. Click click click click clack. Most pilots find the trim wheel annoying but I love it all. Iordan

    Weather Radar not working with ASN

    That was it! How simple in retrospect. Iordan Koulov

    Weather Radar not working with ASN

    That looks a lot like what I'm getting, mine are much bigger squares. I've posted in the ASN support forum. Can you guys start a separate topic for the PFPX issue, this one is crowed as is. Iordan Koulov

    Weather Radar not working with ASN

    It works!!! somewhat I am picking up precip with the radar now, however ASN is feeding radar data in a very perplexing manner, all the returns are low intensity, perfectly square boxes. This is both on the ND within the sim, and on the map that ASN provides. Ill work on it more tom. Iordan Koulov

    Weather Radar not working with ASN

    Kyle, I understand the need to "head off people reporting issues," and I'm sure that you're not referring to me in particular. Personally, I'm aware of how the weather radar functions. I've spend the past several months reading that section of the manual in preparation for the release. I'm far from an expert, but I have taken the time to educate myself. Networking ASN has its advantages, even if the performance impact is not huge, every little bit helps. I do get better performance when I run ASN on the second computer. In addition to the better performance, being able to control/analyze the weather from a second computer, without having to minimize or pause the sim is perhaps the biggest advantage. I can keep a eye on (change) the weather at my destination, my alternate, ect, all without having to pause and minimize the sim. Not only is this more realistic in terms of what would be happening in a real cockpit, but I've found that FSX really does not like it when you minimize it or use other programs while it is running. Also, I run PFPX on the second computer, PFPX can pull the weather from ASN directly which is an excellent feature. Yes, setting it all up to run on the second machine was not easy, but it was certainly worth it. I'd rather not have the weather radar feature, than move ASN back to the primary machine. I can assure you that ASN is sending precip data to the sim, the rain is visible out the window, but not on the radar. Has the weather radar worked successfully when ASN is networked? If the answer is no, life goes on. The improvements to the flight dynamics are the highlight of this update anyway. If you could point me in a direction to work in so I can solve this issue that would be great too. Iordan Koulov

    Weather Radar not working with ASN

    That is so not what I wanna hear. If someone who does have it working on a second computer, please post so I can try and figure this out. Meanwhile, a quick relaxing flight in the NGX is in order for tonight. Iordan Koulov

    Weather Radar not working with ASN

    I did that too, despite the fact I had to reassign all the axis, buttons and everything for all my A/C. ASN is on a second machine, could that be affecting stuff? Iordan Koulov

    Weather Radar not working with ASN

    Not working here either, tests fine, ASN connection is good. Set it to hail, snow, rain, nothing on the display. Reinstalled FSUIPC. Nothing. Giving up for tonight. Quite frustrated. Iordan Koulov

    Q400 Cadet Training - final reserve fuel

    Just as a suggestion, it be great if we could get imperial equivalents for all these standard weights, just as a text across the bottom of the screen or something. You know being a lazy American it'd make things easier. Not a big deal either way, can't wait for the rest if the vids and the otter training. Jordan Koulov
  15. Hi airline2sim, I got this message today when attempting to log in. Any idea why this might be happening? I am using two different computers at home to watch the videos. Plus an iPhone plus at my girlfriends house I sometimes use her Mac to watch um (she's usually not amused). Is that something I shouldn't be doing. Jordan koulov
