  1. Hellow guys! I am having an issue with the 737 FMC. I can understand that the terrain on copilot side is inhibited for better performance but I don’t know why the FIX doesn’t either work. For example I am in the Copilot’s CDU FIX page and i am entering the FIX(AB,USA or whatever). As soon as i click on the L1 button,it returns back to the FIX page without any fix. But meanwhile it works normal on the Cap’s CDU. and besides,I can not type anything into the FMC by using my keyboard although I do click on the scratchpad and it shows up the green edge which means I am suppose to type in with my keyboard. But it just doesn’t work... So I click on the TAB key which usually deactivate the co pilots scratchpad but it doesn’t either work,the green edge still remains
  2. Good day, Yesterday i was trying to setup the Vrinsight CDU via keywords. I did it fine with Right and Left lines selectors and Functions but i can't do it with the Alphanumeric keys. With the FMS Functions i used from 0 to 15 in the command parameter, but what should i use to receive a letter or number with FMS_Alpha?
  3. Good evening, I am using P3D v4.1 and have recently loaded the Carenado Citation 525 Cj2, the Premier 1A, and the King C90 GTX into V4.1. However, I am having an issue trying to input a flight plan into the Proline system. I am not able to input an Origin or Destination or any other information using the CDU. When I press the LSK next to the Origin or Destination, nothing happens. I have gone by the instructions so I am thoroughly confused as to the issue. I wanted to check with the forums first before I uninstalled and re-installed the aircraft again. Any help would be appreciated...thanks! Marcus
  4. Hey guys, I built a home cockpit designed to be as versatile as possible. I tend to find myself most interested when I am learning different planes. I only really started flight simming back in March but I have got to know the PMDG737, A2A C182, and PMDG747. I am excited about the maddog md80 plus the Aerosoft CRJ and Majestic DQ400 are on my short list. I have loads of buttons and switches for my simulator which is great but the FMC/CDU/FMS (sorry I don't know the correct terminology for each plane) seems like it's going to be a problem when transitioning from the none PMDG planes. The easy solution right now for PMDG is the VRInsight iPad apps and an iPad mini but does anyone have any ideas for other aircraft? I am okay with using a pop-up window to see the FMC and type in commands as I have a large monitor right in my face but running at 30hz trying to use the mouse with the stutter is nauseating at times and quite frustrating. Plus I have some motion and vibration in my sim so it's tough to mouse click when things are really going. I have a small wireless TV remote style keyboard on the front of my yoke that I can type with but that would still leave me with quite a few buttons to map outside of the letters on the FMC. I looked into the CDU II from VRinsight but the solution seems quite complex and not that great. However; I could be wrong since I have found almost no tutorials or forum posts of people actually using this method. Although there is one on this forum with someone who seemingly got it to work on the Majestic. All in all it seems little over the top. I am just searching for some creative ideas that maybe people have come up with for creating more of a universal FMC. I use P3Dv4.1 so that's why I am posting here. If you have any solutions or ideas let me know. Cheers, Brian
  5. Both CDUs show "Loading Data Base" and nothing happens. Ran Navigraph update for all Carenado Aircraft. But nothing changes. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  6. Hi guys, i know this data is provided by Navigraph randomly, but i always try if it's available. Because of different gate info between charts and addon-scenery (in that case ZBAA data). I checked different gate data format inputs to get knowledge if just my chosen gate wasn't stored in Navigraph database or they were generally missing. I found one working, which gave out gps position reading. After that i wanted to clean this info, but it wasn't possible to find a proper way. I also tried the digit "0" This replaced the input before, but was represented by a different gps position again. But i wanted to solve this but I didn't want to close the sim and start it again. So i decided to reload the cold & dark profile. And then something strange happened. The "wrong" input "0" in the field of gate-positions was still there and kept. And that's the reason why i write this post. Is this intentionally behaviour? As far as i remember PMDG did some "hardening" back in the MD-11 years to avoid wrong user-inputs which led to crashes sometimes. Please correct me if i understood the concrete logic on this topic wrong!: It needs a proper Navigraph database readout to replace a wrong gate number input. But we all know they aren't complete, which makes corrections difficult. And there is no other option to clean this field. You can't replace the wrong GPS data itself by input of the correct GPS-position taken from airport charts. (i checked this too) also a C&D panel state reload keeps wrong gate data. Maybe i missed something, but as user i would be happy to be able to clean this Gate-Numbers line as every other parameter in CDU in every aircraft withoud closing the whole sim.
  7. Hi all, I am using an additional monitor to display the CDU of the NGX. When I undock the CDU and use it on my second monitor I dont have any noticable framerate impact. (I am using P3D V3) However, I would like to have only the CDU display without the actual CDU gauge around it. As stated in multiple posts regarding this topic the only thing you gave to do is renaming "gauge00=PMDG_737NGX!CDU, 0,0,385,600,L #0" in the panel.cfg to "gauge00=PMDG_737NGX!CDU_Screen, 0,0,385,600,L #0". This does indeed work - when clicking the CDU in the VC only the CDU display shows up. I am having the following problem though: When I click on the CDU with the tweak applied (no CDU gauge, only display), my frames drop by about 30%. Without the change in the panel.cfg (the default state with the CDU gauge) my frames remain basically untouched. Does anyone have an idea what could cause this issue? The frame drop seems odd to me, since the computer basically renders the same thing without the actual CDU gauge (only display). I am glad for any idea/advise. Thanks! David
  8. Hello, Is it possible to control FMC inputs from the central CDU? I've searched for an answer but can't find a reference. Best wishes, Luke
