Hi, I recently bought the PMDG777 and when I finally got it to work, I took the airplane out for a flight in terrible rainy weather going from OMDB's RWY30L. I pressed the WXR button on the MCP. and then on the pedestal, I pressed AUTO, the L/R button (or whatever it is called), the WX+T button and then I turned the gain knob all the way to the right and starting turning the range knob right and left only to find out that nothing has changed on my display. It was still black. I read some things about the FSUIPC.ini file and just like people suggested, I moved it to a temporary folder to see if that would work but nothing changed. Best Regards, AbdulRahman.
I'm a bit stumped on getting the weather radar to show precipitation. I have Active Sky 2016 running with Live Weather active. I've done a search in AS2016 to find somewhere that has heavy rain and stormy weather. I've then gone into FSX and loaded up the default PMDG 747 V3 (570 model) on the active runway at that airport so that the I'm ready for take off, engines running and all systems go. Outside it's pouring with rain, runway is soaked, visibility is less than 3 miles and I'm getting lightning flashes, result! I have a green bar weather update confirming it's not pleasant weather in my location. I have clicked the WX button on the EFIS so that WX etc displays on the ND. So far so good. However, there is no depiction on the ND of the rain and storm, no pretty green, yellow, red colours etc. Trust me, it's heaving down outside! I have tried adjusting both the gain and tilt in each direction but nothing appears on the ND display. I have tried WX and WX-T. When I click the Test button it confirms the radar is active. I've re-read the Intro Weather Radar section and looked at FCOM page 1220 onwards as advised (the wood) but I just can't see which click of which button on the weather radar (the trees) I need to do to get it to display the wet weather waiting for me! Would appreciate some help from experienced weather radar users. Thanks!
