Please note - systems debug mode has been removed. Feel free to select any livery or aircraft variation, to reload the 777, to select/save another flight.

Lights don't work by switching the switches. Only the interior lighting. The Exterior lighting does work by pressing "L".

Switches such as the lights don't light up to show "ON" either.

Also LOTS of other switches that need to have an "ON" or "FAULT" indication.

The problems definetley have something to do with other captain sim products.
At first when i installed the 777 it had no landing gear so
I uninstalled the both the 777 and 757 and then reinstalled the 777 again.
This time round i had my landing gear but was experienicing
the same difficulties as everyone else.
I also now reinstalled the 757 and my joystick is now working and
I also have some other functionality back.
I'll keep testing and see what else I can come up with?!

The 777 seems to disable the "Controller" (the joystick in my case). Pressing CTRL+K (the default key command for disabling/enabling the joystick/controller) gets it working again for me.

I can confirm i never got the joystick to work, no matter what i do. You shouldn't need to reboot the computer to make it work, it doesn't make any sense nor should you need to exit and restart FSX.

This is the same problem we have seen with the 737 and it's probably related to the protection, or so it seems.

As of now, my T7 is unflyable.

I get a very gentle left and right rocking motion, but no where near enough to be a problem (I really have to look closely at it to see it (no where near as bad as another developers A300B4-200). It is also more obvious during the ILS landing.

1) APU startup time is not realistic. A real APU will take about 1 minute to start.

*EDIT*

Solved the issues reported on Nr2.

When you put KSFO instead of KSEA I tend to suspect you'd do something else wrong...  Wink

I flew the KSEA to KSFO flight in the 777. It was the first flight I did in v0.2 and everything worked fine, even after I had deleted some waypoints and added in extra waypoints.

Thanks. I'll try it out next flight.

I'm currently about 1 hour from finishing a flight from YMML to YPDN (about a 4 hour flight) and except for the fuel from the left wing tank feeding the engines (I have to keep switching to the right wing tank every now and then to even the weight), everything else is working great. The CDU has calculated the fuel usage and route information beautifully. So this IS the best flight I have ever had in the 777 to date. Grin

well besides the obvious stuff mentioned, I get 9 frames in a situation where I get locked 29 FPS with the other, I guess this is also subject to change..... Cheesy

May we see fullscreen (including windows taskbar) screenshots of the 777 at 9fps and the other at 29fps please? Same place same FSX settings of course.

I did what you wished.....but my post got deleted...... Shocked
I feel a little strange right now......

It was just a misstyping. I select the KSEA b777-200 flight, load it and when it puts me into the VC, I experience no systems at all. All my glass displays are black and I can not turn them on. Even my Electric Flight Bag is black, it does not help if I puch the power button on it.

Please, let me know what do I do wrong, because as it looks now I even can not try out the plane. I fly a lot with CS767, thus I know how your systems work.

Your computer/FSX meets the minimum system requirements for the 777? Is your FSX updated with SP2 or Acceleration?

Peter

A few times I have started FSX by selecting the 777-200 Cleared for takeoff (KSEA).FSSAVE file (located in Documents\Flight Simulator X Files).

Other times, I start FSX normally. My default flight is the MSFS C172 cold-n-dark (Avionics Master Switch ON) and then I either load the 777-200 Cleared for takeoff (KSEA) flight, or select an airport, select the 777-200 and then click on Fly Now.

Dear Mark,

no problem with my computer. I have 2600K processor at 4.6GHZ+GTX480 and 8Gb RAM+ASUSP8P67WSREV mother board.

Do you need to switch on the displays manually, or when you load the aircraft you have them ON at once?

Thanks,

Peter

Suddenly it started to work. I made a reinstall and now it works. I even had my first take off and landing at LHBP. Everything worked fine, although I could not swich the AP on only the A/T. Fps wise it is not the best. I got 18-20fps at LHBP, where I have app 5-6fps higher with the CS767X. The VC night lighting is a bit too light for me, it would be good if the knobs and switches could be illuminated seperated. At the moment there is too much light in the cockpit.

Turn OFF the DOME

I love the CS767, thus I hope the 777 will be even better.

I agree that the FPS are pretty bad in the 777.  Is this due to the systems being in debug mode?  

I hope there is further optimisation of the FPS.

A couple of other suggestions:

- it is currently not possible to view the radio panel from the Captain's view (the radio panel is obscured by the Captain's seat head rest).  Can you please fix the default Captain's viewpoint so that the radio panel is viewable by panning?

- it is very difficult in any of the default views to access and use the upper overhead panel.  Can you please make an upper overhead panel viewpoint?

- can you please make the default panel state a proper cold & dark, rather than the odd state we find it in with engines running and most systems off?

This product has a lot of potential.

Thanks!

Move the seat backwards so the head rest is out of the way (that's what I do).

In the aircraft.cfg file, I have set the F10 key to move me to VC "Overhead" ([CameraDefinition.002] view), by adding HotkeySelect=2 at the bottom. Like this:

[CameraDefinition.002]
Title = "Overhead"
Guid = {93EA964A-D1F4-4AD0-9E94-37ED9EB79079}
Origin = Virtual Cockpit
MomentumEffect = YES

SnapPbhReturn = False

PanPbhReturn = False

ShowAxis = YES
AllowZoom = TRUE
InitialZoom = .5
SmoothZoomTime = 2.0
ZoomPanScalar = 1.0
ShowWeather = Yes
XyzAdjust = TRUE
ShowLensFlare=FALSE
Category = Cockpit
PitchPanRate=20
HeadingPanRate=60
InitialXyz=0.50, -0.35, -0.45
InitialPbh=-52.0, 0, 0
HotkeySelect=2

I have also set the F12 key to move me to VC "CDU" ([CameraDefinition.004] view), by adding HotkeySelect=4 at the bottom. Like this:

[CameraDefinition.004]
Title = "CDU"
Guid = {CC7B06BC-6A5C-4098-B6E9-E5A0932D9F11}
Origin = Virtual Cockpit
MomentumEffect = YES
SnapPbhAdjust = Swivel
SnapPbhReturn = False

PanPbhReturn = False
Track = None
ShowAxis = YES
AllowZoom = TRUE
InitialZoom = .5

Category = Cockpit
PitchPanRate=20
HeadingPanRate=60
InitialXyz=0.40, -0.25, 0.58

I turned my head around and looked up and saw those red lights..pressed and off I went.

FYI I use Ezdoc to move around to switches etc..

You can toggle many different views in the VC by pressing A. Examples are the First officer's seat and overhead panel. The reason why the 767 appears to be more framerate friendly than the 777 is because the 767 is a finished product while the 777 is still in beta mode.

I just discovered if I run free flight with a default plane, then switch to the 777 then everything works, even the displays are all on without having to turn the switch underneath! I did have to shutdown and restart the engines though as there were some errors on the overhead, this fixed them though.
Saved flight still crashes my sim though!

It might be a corrupted save file. Have you tried redownloading the exe and reinstalling it?

When you say "everything works" do you mean that  The pfd and the other displays show all the info ?

I don't think there are any Yaw Damper Switches.

The displays are active is what I mean, so the outboard display shows the pfd, the inboard one shows Nav etc, when I loaded the plane directly into FSX I had the PFD in the inboard display and nothing in the outboard display until I moved the switch under the inboard display. Then they both came on after that. I'm at work at the moment so can't post a screenshot to show you what I mean, maybe after I get home (or you could try it and see what happens! Wink )

Is there anything to do against the rocking? It's tiring for the eyes, and passengers must be thick!!!

My problems:

Gear won't go up (I know this has been said before)
Pilots seat is by default way too far up and camera eyepoint looks strange.
Rudder and Aileron trim are started all the way to the left, was very confusing my first flight lol.
Also this last one may just be a setting on my part but for some reason it will only take fuel from the left or center tanks, not the right.  This creates an imbalance that makes the aircraft drag to the right after a while.

However in the default flight, gear and trim all work correctly.  The fuel imbalance remains an issue even there though.

A couple of other suggestions:

- it is currently not possible to view the radio panel from the Captain's view (the radio panel is obscured by the Captain's seat head rest).  Can you please fix the default Captain's viewpoint so that the radio panel is viewable by panning?

- it is very difficult in any of the default views to access and use the upper overhead panel.  Can you please make an upper overhead panel viewpoint?

- can you please make the default panel state a proper cold & dark, rather than the odd state we find it in with engines running and most systems off?

This product has a lot of potential.

Thanks!



Just wanted to update the comments I made previously, now that I have loaded the 777 KSEA flight as it fixed a number of the issues:

- Captain's default viewpoint:  can now see radio stack by panning, but 0.40 zoom is too little in my opinion.  It would be better to default at 1.00 zoom.

- FPS: better than when not loading the 777 KSEA flight, however still not great.  Hopefully this can be optimised.

I'm not having this problem, so I don't know how to fix it.

Pilots seat is by default way too far up and camera eyepoint looks strange.
The pilot seat can be moved (up/down and backwards/forward) so that gets it out of the way. I move it backwards a fair bit.

Captain's default viewpoint:  can now see radio stack by panning, but 0.40 zoom is too little in my opinion.  It would be better to default at 1.00 zoom.
Press the Backspace Key (default key command for resetting the zoom). It will reset to 70% or 80% which is really good in my opinion.

I get this too but only when the Autopilot is flying, and it doesn't happen all the time! Wondering if its something to do with weather, will try reseting to clear skies to see if it makes any difference.

How do you move it backwards? I can move up and down, but when I try backwards it doesn't move, I get the Hand icon but it doesn't 'grab' when I click the mouse, but it does when I move up and down.

There are two levers on the right side of the pilots seat. One raises/lowers the seat. The other moves the seat forward/backward.

Thanks Mark, I thought the forward and backwards was behind the up and down, from your image it looks like the other way around!

I have already added one more as well as made some changes to some of the existing views. I don't think that they have affected the performance. I backed up the original, so I revert to the original occasionally to be sure the issue is not caused by my changes.

Are you following these instructions:

Obviously we are well aware of the issue and working on it. But till further notice consider the following as a limitation:
"777-200 Cleared for takeoff (KSEA)" flight ONLY.
DO NOT select another LIVERY or aircraft,
DO NOT reload the 777,
DO NOT select another flight.

Yes I have had, do have, this problem too. The landing ONLY refuses to retract when I start a cold-n-dark flight. Which is what we should NOT be doing just yet!

I have a small problem. And that is...

Whenever I load a new flight, the aircraft starts off with the engines running at full power, and before I can make out what's going on and pull the power back to idle, it's gone through about 5 terminal buildings or overrun the runway...  Tongue

NOTE: This does not happen in the KSEA flight.

The rocking issue with the AP may be caused by this line in the aircraft.cfg

AP_Roll_controlstep=3000

I've changed it to 1500, same thing happened with the 757/767 and I'm pretty sure CS implemented this in 757 4.6.

hope this helps Smiley

I meant to say...
besides the AP rocking I have had the fuel feeding from one side when I turn off center tanks.

Not sure where to post for a fuel issue...flight model?

For the controls, check the hydraulics are turned on, three or four switches I think, above the overhead panel. If there are orange lights showing, this means the hydraulics are off, unguard the switches and turn them on, this should get the controls working again.

Press L to turn on all the lights for now as the light switches for NAV, BEACON etc dont work yet.. not sure on the landing gear, if you mean its not retracting or extening, check the hydraulics are on (see post above this) otherwise I'm not sure.

I would like to ask Captain Sim, if you would please...

edit the aircraft.cfg so FSX ATC has the right working callsign...

American Airlines s/b just American and British Airway s/b Speed Bird (I know it's spelled wrong but this is what FSX recognizes)

just to name a couple...the list of working FSX ATC callsings has been posted here, just a small thing (and secondary at best) that would mean a lot to me.

Thank you Smiley

I haven't had that problem since I started with the "777-200 Cleared for takeoff (KSEA)". I can move it to another airport, shut it down, restart it and fly from A to B and the landing gear is fine.
It is only if I start FSX, select an airport, select the 777 then click on FLY NOW, that I have this problem. BUT. It does not happen every time I start the 777 that way, only every second time.

Good morning guys.

I have found the next issues on the 777-200 0.201

1
my virus scanner removes a gen variant spam 1 malware from the captain sim 777. fms gauge, when installing the product
and then i cannot use the plane
I am using FS Secure

Tell your  virus scanner there are NO malware in the 777.  

2 the gear won't go up after take off

3 during a flight,  all the engines stop working, and the plane crashes

Thanks in advance.

I have found something. Sorry if this is in the wrong area.

I have noticed, that when you select a flap setting, it will make a sound. But if you select the next level quick, all sound will be lost for the selection, as in the sound of the flap handle being clicked down.

I am sorry if this is petty, but I would just like to help out with the beta you have given me the opportunity for.

If you wait the full motion until it is done with its sound, then you will hear the next sound start upon selecting a flap setting. As someone who is no master pilot, sometimes I have to drop to multiple levels of flaps in quick succession. Just something I noticed...

Also.
Is this bird suppose to be this hard to slow down?

Same here, I noted that on the initial release and finished up editing the x772.air file increasing <*Cd_ds Drag Coeficient - Spoiler> from 20 to 55 making it more realistic.

Ive tried 4 gates at YMML, 2 gates at YSSY and 2 gates at RKSI. Only one jetway at RKSI has been able to connect. I havent been able to turn during pushback for any airport or gate yet :/

Ive tried 4 gates at YMML, 2 gates at YSSY and 2 gates at RKSI. Only one jetway at RKSI has been able to connect. I havent been able to turn during pushback for any airport or gate yet :/

Although there are no Large Gates at YMML, I always park my large airliners at D11 (D7 if I'm using Orbx YMML V2).

Here is a image of the 777 at YMML Gate D11 with the jetway working:

After installing SP 0.3  having problems restarting FSX.
The problem appears after a few minutes of flight.
It happens only with the CS 777.

ORBX YMML V2 is quite nice isnt it? Only downside is that it hits my FPS really hard, but anyway, after installing the 0.3SP, jetways connect and it turns during pushback Cheesy I really hope CS will add more features to the PFD and MFD in the next update.

There is a switch for each of the Inner Displays. Make sure that both are set to either NAV or MFD (see attached image).

I had the same problem, make sure fuel is balanced left and right main tank. If this isn't the issue turn off all weather and fly in clear WX, slight turbulence makes the wings rock quite abit. This works for me......

Hi all,

I'm missing something easy I'm sure. What switches must be on to get ANY MFD to display something?

Is there a checklist?

Besides the advice already given re: fuel balancing; also check this;

I assume you are using 0.3 and the KSEA start flight. If using older versions, the hydraulic switches back of the overhead panel defaulted to off. The aileron trim switches were defaulted to the left at start of flight. If one simply turned on the hydraulics without FIRST centering the aileron trim switches  one would get a runaway out-of trim condition, resulting in a nasty left bank on take off and a real hard time regaining control. The autopilot would struggle too, resulting in a rocking roll motion. If one opened the MFD flight control synoptic under these conditions, one could see the ailerons and spoilers rocking up from left to right wing.

This has all been fixed up on v0.3; Starting with the KSEA flight hydraulic switches are on and aileron trim switches are nuetral, so you should not get this problem. But if starting your own flights, or modifying the KSEA flights, always check aileron trim switches are nuetral (rudder and elevator for that matter as well) before applying any hydraulic power. Good practice anyhow (otherwise might smack some ground crew member on the head)! Since this is also a Beta version I always also go to Spot view and check the control surfaces are all neutralized, also on the MFD synoptic, after turning hydraulics on.

Doing this I have had smooth flights with no rocking, and using AS2012 real weather with turbulence settings on high. I do use FSUIPC to smooth out wind gusts, variance etc., but still have turbulence (don't like flying in a vacuum)! I start at KSEA (edited livery), move to my parking spot, switch off, and do complete start up and checks. Works for me anyhow.

So if you have this rocking even though fuel is balanced, open the MFD flight control synoptic. If the spoilers are rocking side to side I would bet its an aileron trim problem. If you see this, only fix in flight is to hand fly, and get her trimmed up (not too easy with current state of the flight model), before going back on autopilot. Also don't use heading hold to change to a heading Roll Eyes; that gets her really rocking side to side again - use heading select for this.

Do any RW 777 pilots out there know where aileron trim is displayed? Elevator and rudder trim settings are easily accessed, but how to check aileron trim state (no reading either in Tooltip so Captain Sim might want to add this to assist users getting the trim right and so avoid blaming the flight model!)

CS777 .3 was rocking sharply from side to side on AP heading hold, especially with fuel imbalance, turbulence and low airspeed. I commented out the [Custom Autopilot] section in aircraft.cfg and let a serious imbalance develop and turned on gusty weather. There was no rocking at all. I do not know if these are related, but it is working properly now.

Does would remove the site from opening 777 Captain Sim? Every time my fsx opens the web it crashes. The latch 777 is not working any more.

Download and install the 0.4 from the updates page and the 777 will not redirect you to the 0.4 update anymore.

I have 0.4. When starting the recommended flight I sometimes will get a centered rudder. Then I notice at some point the rudder goes full right, so I decided to see which action triggers the rudder to stick at the full right position.

It turns out that when I twist the joystick to apply rudder, the rudder goes full right immediately and stays there. I can hold left rudder to center it but it returns to full right. Not talking about trim here.

I mention this because I haven't seen any other post mentioning any action causing this, directly or indirectly. Interesting if nothing else. Until this I had thought that the rudder always started out stuck if it was stuck at all.

Just a very minor issue but may effect those who do not or cannot correct it manually.

The latest versions only fly with 2 payload stations (2 pilots) but the aircraft.cfg file should look something like this:-

max_number_of_stations = 15

station_load.0 = 170, 96.98, -3, 2.06
station_load.1 = 170, 97.03, 3, 2.06

Well.... I have 5 pictures but can't post em.  I learned that I had to install all of my aircraft before I installed my controllers.  I had the no landing gear problem up to the point where I installed the controllers (Using Saitek Yoke, Rudder, and additional throttles).  After I fought FSX and FSUIPC I finally got everything working.  The controll surfaces on my 777 all worked.  And I had landing gear too.  I started out at KDTW and taxied to rwy 22L.  Lined up, throttles forward, and she jumped into the sky using 3/4 of the runway.  At 3,000 I put the gear up, or so I thought, and climbed out at 1500 fpm.  Still slugish so I did an external view and discovered that the gear was still in the down position.  I used the Gear Handel control, from the 3d, and still down.  Recycled ground sensor, still down, toggled alt still down.  At 14,000 the aircraft stalled due to autopilot closing off throttles.  So I have created a reverse situation of no gear to gear at all times.  Also, like the rest, none of the light switches work.  What is the status of the FMC?  Is it functional?  If so I'd like to get started working on the interface for the VRinsight CDUII.  It flew great, taxied great, took off great.  Then it just gave up.  It is truly a nice aircraft once the bugs are chased out. Almost forgot...double checked hydraulics and confirmed they showed operational indications.  But if they didn't work then the control surfaces wouldn't move so I guess that is a moot point.

Running FSX on a Windows 7 platform
i7 processor with 8 gig Ram
GTX460sl graphics with 1.5 gig installed on the card.
Using Saitek flight controlls
Waiting to use VRinsight CDU II.
I also have CS 757-200/300, CS 767, and, of course CS 777.
Also have other, other, other, and Quality Wings paywares installed. Huh

Hi ChinookGuy

You should read this: 100% MUST READ!, so you can see Captain Sims guidelines for use at the moment.

If I start from my FSX Start Screen and select the 777, Airport, weather and time, most times the gear refuses to retract. So I nearly always load the 777-200 Cleared for takeoff (KSEA) flight, move the 777 to the airport of my choice, set up the FMC for the flight I want to do (all with the engines running), taxi to the takeoff runway and do my flight. I never have a problem with the landing refusing to retract.

You can move it to another airport, shut it down, and do a start from cold and dark if you want. It might work. There are others with the CS 777 who are having better luck than me. Wink

Hi Guys , First time poster here.


Has anyone mentioned lighting yet?

I was doing a bit of mucking about with the KSEA default flight, and noticed there were no lights at all when I changed to night, after turning on all the switches in the VC.

Not related to lighting, but I have also experienced the 0.4 yoke hard left issue. Markoz's advice (starting fsx from the flt file) seemed to fix it, but is there an "official way" to rectify this?

I just press the L key to bring up all the lights, the press CTRL+L to turn the landing lights on and off.

On the overhead panel the light switches for (2) Dome Light Control, (4) Circuit Breaker (CB) Panel Light Control (inner) and (10) Master Brightness Switch all work (see attached image).

So it's just the switches that don't work atm. Thanks mark, will try that.

P.S- will there be a way in the 1.0 release to individually control the lights?

Thanks Mark.  I just assumed (yeah I know [ask you me'd]) that with 04 they have opened the gate.  Main reason for my post was the joystick / controller issue.  Just trying to let folks know that if you install aircraft first and controller second it works fine.  Back to KSEA to see what happens next.  Smiley

Started at KSEA and now I have all the problems everyone else has.  No landing Gear, controls don't work.  If I shut the flight down and try aa new flight neither my CS 767 or 757 will load up.  No matter which aircraft I choose I always get the 777 back.  This is just a confirmation of everyones issues.  It was much better at KDTW   lol   Smiley

It should be in your:
C:\Users\YourName\Documents\Flight Simulator X Files
777-200 Cleared for takeoff (KSEA)

You will have to load this flight either from your initial FSX screen, or from your upper screen menu if you are already in another flight.

Ok. I installed .05 and love the Korean Air. But I have some problems...


Gear does not go up, light switches do not control lights (I have to use the fsx key commands for lights), my yoke and throttle 1 animations are slow (but work fine), and I think that's it.

All the main flight controls (yoke, rudder, etc.) are all to the left. Changing rudder/aileron trim does not fix the issue. I can still fly it but the animations of moving the yoke/rudder/flaps are not moving at all. As a bonus the FPS is extremely low even though my pc is very good.

I actually haven't flown 0.5 yet, but be sure the hydraulic switches behind the fuses are ON. Also, the 777 is in "debug mode" which brings down the FPS a good bit.

A few comments on v.0.5, which I haven't yet flown...

"...new features and enhancements:-

   - 777-200ER PW 4090 model variation added - Yippee  Wink
   - 777-200ER PW 4090 Korean Air HL7526 (cn 27947/148) livery added - again, Yippee Wink
   - FMC various engines support added - May be useful...
   - EFB various engines support added - OK if you fly to Moscow!
   - MCP 2D panel added - Good.
   - EFIS 2D panel added - Good.
   - Knobs "self-spin" animation fix (300+ items) - Great! At Last!
   - MCP displays 6 and 9 characters improved - Good.
   - Manual Part I updated - and apparently, Part II added...

I was hoping that the PFD would have acquired functions such as 'bugs' for V-speeds & VSI, as well as indicators (at the top) for AP, APPR, etc.

And that the ND/MFD would show a moving map...

Perhaps we have to be patient, as it iS a very complicated sim, and just wait for the next version - or two? Smiley

Yeah I am impressed with v0.5. FPS seemed to be improved (I was getting upwards of 17 or 18), and we have a PW 4090 now, just saw a 4098 the other day, and I have to say it looks spot on from the front. Unfortunately the engine casing is on so I can't see anything else Sad. BTW, if you live on the East Coast of the US in the Mid-Atlantic region, or might be in the area, I'd recommend going to the Udvar-Hazy center by Dulles, you can see a PW 4098, and a lot of other cool things too.

Back to the topic at hand though, I had a little fun at Edwards with the PW, and although the gear doesn't go up, it will if you load up something like the 737, then load the 777 back up, gear goes up and down over and over and over. It's a fix for anyone having the issue, I haven't been tracking it though so not sure if this has already been discovered.

Also, not sure if this is something CS would answer, but is the gear problem done on purpose, or is it a bug? I know the external model's gear was fine, so is this just something that is supposed to happen?

One other gear related thing I've tested was the brake temperatures and the system that calculates/runs it. When landing with the parking brakes on, the brakes heat up, and heat up quick. Advancing the throttles to full on the ground with the parking brakes on from a full stop seems to do nothing heat wise. The parking brakes also seem fairly strong, the plane doesn't budge with them on and full throttle applied. I was just wondering if this was realistic to the plane's characteristics.

Thanks for another great update, and keep 'em coming, this plane is superb!

Here is how I fixed the problem:

Uninstall v0.5.
Delete the FSX\Captain_Sim\777 folder if it is still there.
Delete the FSX\SimObjects\Airplanes\CS_B777-200_GE and CS_B777-200_PW folders if they are still there.
Reboot computer.
Install v0.5
Reboot computer.
Install the v0.6 update.
Reboot computer.

Hopefully it is working correctly now.

Hello CaptainSim, You really need to fix the initialization problems once and for all. I have .6 and still cannot get a consistent startup with the KSEA flight. Once in a while it will start correctly, but usually something will not be working such as yoke hard over, no course line on ND, no landing gear, white textures, etc. Then I load the FSX Safe Startup flight and then load 777 again. Or shut down FSX and start over. I'm sure many would test fly the plane, but not if they can't get it working. Many have just given up because of the initialization problems. Please make this your primary effort so that we can jump into our test flights immediately.

It is extremely frustrating to have to do restarts / resets / various jumps through hoops and tweaks to just get going. Also some problems in initialization do not surface till after takeoff. So after apparently having everything nicely setup, the test flight has to be aborted after pushback (no engine start) or after takeoff (no gear up, RAT deployed), simply because something is not working.

This just wastes valuable testing / flying time, and as Saratoga said, I am sure many have just given up.

I'm currently doing another flight, and in this one, the landing gear retracted fine, but the RAT deployed. Huh
At the moment it seems that if the gear retracts, the RAT deploys OR the gear refuses to retract and the RAT remains closed.

If the gear retracts, I continue the flight ignoring the fact that the RAT has deployed. I will not continue a flight if the landing gear refuses to retract.

It can certainly be frustrating at times. Sad

I've been having two problems which I'm trying to find workarounds, for, but really should be fixed by v1.0.

1) The startup sequence is buggy. Apparently you need to press CTRL+SHIFT+F4 at a certain time, and so if you forget to and go ahead with setting up the plane, you will then realize when it comes time to start the engines that you just spent all that time configuring the plane for nothing.

2) The saving and loading of flights works better than any Captain Sim aircraft, for the most part, but there is a major problem. When you load a saved flight, the FMC and radios are all loaded as blank.

Thanks!

My RAT deploys as well. Even tried to raise it using the animations pop-up but no response. Gear retracting and extending on a reliable basis though.

T7 still has some ways to go in development, but as I recall,on aircraft with a RAT,it is used in an emergency,in the event of a hydraulic pump failure,so it is probably tied to the hydraulic switches.Its switch deployment is guarded,and it normally cannot be retracted in flight,but has to be done on the ground by maintenance mechanics,which makes sense,as a hydraulic failure is pretty major, Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

The RAT can not be stored away if the 777 is NOT on the ground! So you re wasting your time trying to if you are flying.

I spent 8 years as an aircraft mechanic so in real life yes it's impossible to retract in flight. But I was hoping that the pop up menu would be a work around to the problem. But nope, didn't work.

Does anybody remember when it deploys? I don't remember seeing it from the external view during taxi.

Here is how I solved the problem:

1-Problem: Rat deployed after Takeoff, Landing gear not retract
http://img811.imageshack.us/img811/1223/cs777test1.jpg

2-Select CS172 at your airport, Engine running, all switches are ON
http://img35.imageshack.us/img35/5517/cs777test2.jpg

3-Select any CS 777 (I selected AF for this test)
777 will apear at same spot where CS172 located with Engines are not running, RAT is not deployed, RAT switches light OFF in OH Panel and Hydraulic main switches OFF.

a- Turn Hydraulic Switches on in  Upper OH Panel
b- Start APU ( before start make sure Fuel Control is Cut Off position ) After APU starts, push  APU switches Auto in "Bleed air "panel
c-RAT switches light should remains OFF

d-Start the engines (Turn engine start switches to Start, then put Fuel Control Run position)

AS you see below picture after takeoff RAT and  LANDING GEARS  remains closed.
http://img840.imageshack.us/img840/5953/cs777test3.jpg

Captain Sim developers doing great job to accomplish the 777 with experienced customers involve. There are huge amount of coding needs to put together like puzzle to finalize the CS-777. At the end, it will be one of the best airplane in Sims World.

Enjoy the on going experience,

The maximum range of the 777-200 is 5240nm, while the 777-200ER it is 7725nm. I have flown the 777-200 on three flights of around 7000nm, so you can do some nice long flights in it.

See here http://www.boeing.com/commercial/777family/pf/pf_200product.html for more info on the 777-200/200ER. There is some PDF files available on the Boeing site (http://www.boeing.com/commercial/airports/plan_manuals.html) with quite a lot of info on the whole range of the 777s.

I found some problems on my last test thrash.

I know lots of people had the issue of gear not retracting, but has anyone else had the gear not extending issue?

I was doing some touch & goes at EHRD, and found the G key didn't work for lowering the gear, and had to use the mouse to grab the VC gear lever. This was after loading a default ultralight, then doing all the HYD switch stuff.

Also, I don't know whether this was because I greased the landing or not, but the spoilers didn't deploy after being armed before landing.

Like the gear, I had to grab the vc lever and open them that way, as the "/" key didn't work to either disarm or deploy.

This is 0.6 btw

Hmm. Interesting. I have not had the gear fail to lower. I wonder why that happened? It makes me think of a hydraulics problem, only after the gear was raised!

(1) Uninstall the 777.
(2) Delete everything, then make sure the Airplanes\Cs_B777-200_XX folder are gone as well as theCaptain_Sim\777 folder is gone.
(3) Reboot you computer.
(4) Install v0.5 (full version and about 219MB).
(5) Reboot computer.
(6) Install the v0.6 (upgrade only 17MB).
(7) Reboot computer.

Rebooting your computer that many times is a safety measure. I found that if I didn't reboot my computer, I had problems that would not go away until after a reboot. I don't know why it made a difference, but it did.
That should be all you need to do.

Thanks for the info Mark.I did all the steps you suggested,and followed Asanal's instructions. I get the following,after ending the Cessna default flight which I have at CYYZ engines running,all switches on.Selected the CS777 AF (at CYYZ) ,engines are not running,RAT is not deployed,RAT SWITCH LIGHT IS UNLOCKED.Hydraulic swithes off,turned them on.
Performed remaining instructions regarding APU,RAT switch is still Unlocked.
Started engines,.started OK, turned on remaining switches on OH.
I still have no CDU power.Any ideas :'( :'( :'(

Hi Ron.

The RAT remains unlocked all the time for me so I just ignore the sign unless it has deployed.
I have found that sometimes the CDU is OFF until after I have turned the APU ON. Make sure that the Avionics Master Switch is ON in the C172, before switching to the 777. Sometimes when the Avionics Master Switch is OFF in the C172, the Radio Panel will still be ON and working. It's weird how that happens.

Hi Mark,thanks for your help.I think one of my problems was not disabling all security protections.also,when uninstalling,use the uninstall icon in the Micosoft FSX folder,not the one in the Control panel.I believe this just leaves one 777 folder to delete.One interesting thing I found before disabling security protections,was,after installing ver 0.5,I had immediately an automatic link come up for the CS page for ver0.6!!.This may have something to do with anti-piracy protection.Anyhoo,I have most stuff working as far as we are with BETA to date,including the CDU.

The update thing is a gauge that was included in the installation of the 777. I had to allow it to be added to the Trusted gauges.
I also found that turning off the security allowed it to work, but it didn't work if I left the security setting on the default setting. I'm not sure if it is included in v0.6.

Going on that, the CS 777-200 is the ER version. Not only that, it also shows on the CDU IDENT page, that it is a 777-200ER. Wink

Hello Together,

Captain Sim I wanted to thank you for all the effort you guys are putting into this Boeing 777.

I though still have some issues with it. All Light switches  still do not work.
The United Aircraft for some reason on departure does not retract its gear. I have to continues hold the G button on my keyboard to retract the gear.

The Navigation display does not show the data as suppose to unless it has still not been fixed.
Also it seems to kill my frames once in VC mode.

My computer is a Gateway DX4860-UR10P (PT.GCPP2.017) Desktop PC Intel Core i5 2320(3.00GHz) 6GB DDR3 2TB HDD Capacity Intel HD Graphics 2000 Windows 7 Home Premium 64-Bit with a Nvidia 520 GTS graphics card.

I tried all the tips but the RAT still deploys (default flight from KSEA to KSFO)
During takeoff run around 90 knots RAT deploys. If I slam the brakes, activate reverse thrust etc to slow the plane down the RAT retracts at 70 knots.
If I set up the plane again and try anotther takeoff run it keeps deploying even with all switches on, APU running etc.
I'll keep trying Asanal's solution but so far did not manage to get it to work.

Landing gear retracts just fine, continued the flight but then VNAV acted up and kept going to higher altitude than the preset on the FMC (310) Plane got up to 340 and kept climbing. This did not correct until I switched off VNAV and set negative climb, after going to roughly 350 it slowly started to descend and when it reached 310 it started to level of and switched to altitude hold correctly.
It does not really make sense to me but I might be overseeing something.

Best regards,
Marc

It takes quite a long time to get the V0.7 update. The current version came out three weeks ago.

I hope the development did not stop.

They have been on vacation. Or at least I assume that by a reply by Tanya (Captain Sim 2) in another topic in the 777 forum somewhere. So 2 weeks work + 2 weeks vacation = 4 weeks before the next update (provided there are no other causes of a further delay)! Wink

Could anyone help me with that? I've just bought the Captain Sim 777 Step II, and also installed the service pack (V0.6). The issue I'm getting is that I can pilot the plane as normal, but the elevator is always dropped and the rudder is turned to the left. It's like the airplane's hydraulics are always off. The stick is also turned to the left. I reinstalled it, but it still makes the same thing. I referred to the knowledge base and tried KB#685. Still doesn't work.

Any help please?   Undecided

That's probably because they ARE off. Wink Look on the AFT OH panel (behind the FO seat) for the Hydraulic Switches. Make sure thay are all turned on. That should allow you to fly it better.

Saratoga has provided a Camera Definition in this topic: Camera Definition for Hydraulics that can be added into the aircraft.cfg, so it is easier to go there to make sure they are on, or to turn them on if necessary.

There are a myriad of issues here, but I'll put only the really buggy problems:
1. No mode annunciations on PFD.
2. No ILS visual cues on PFD. It works in autopilot, but you can't see if on the GS. No way to validate if on glide slope other than looking out the window.
3. As previously mentioned by others, no EICAS messages whatsoever.
4. I can hear the APU spin up, but comes on very quickly.  
5. Hydralics must be started by flipping six switches at top of overhead panel.
6. Landing gear retraction issue is resolved only by starting FSX with base aircraft (C172) then switching to 777.

The ones I've found so far.  The airplane is a bear to fly at the moment, partially due to the bugs, partially due to what it does to my FSX.cfg file.  For some unexplained reason, when I loaded it, it forced "Preview DX10" which I normally have switched off.  I had to go into FSX.cfg and deactivate it to fix the problem.

Long way to go, I think.

Just loaded 7 and at around 70 kts during takeoff roll, the RAT deploys and stays deployed until I land and decelerate to slower than approx 70 kts again. version 6 did the same thing. Otherwise it flies pretty well vice the other knwon hiccups.

The 172 preload still fixes this I had No RAT extention and gear retracts fine for me. Smiley

However No strobe lights
Nav Light switch also moves the Runway Turn off flights.

Great to have a new update though.

Nice to at last have some lights working. I have strobe lights but they are very weak, and not visible at all from certain angles. Also can confirm that turning on Nav lights switch also causes runway "Yurnoff" lights to switch on. Anyone also notice that Logo light switch controls all panel  and overhead lights, i.e. if turn logo light switch off, all panel lighting goes off!

Hey, I have tried many of the suggestions to get the landing gear up. I finally did get them to retract but the ram air turbine still deploys regardless which is not a major problem as it doesn't appear to effect the flight of the aircraft. I now seem to have a new problem where the landing gear appears in the up position with the gear doors in the gear down open position whilst im on the runway. And.. the engine fan blades now appear to spin at start up speeds even while cruising at 400knots..?
All in all I think the 777 is coming along very nicely and im sure all the bugs will be worked out up to and beyond the final release version!  Cool

oh yeah forgot to mention, starting FSX with the C172 as default seems to have no effect in resolving these issues for me.

Not a really big problem to me, but I still wanted to tell you about some issues I have. I'm not looking to fix them, only tell you that there are more than a few people experiencing them. First, the landing gear does not retract in multiplayer or in missions. Also, the RAT is always deployed over 70 knots.  Wink

Figured out that starting a flight with any non Captain Sim aircraft, starting its engines and getting all setup then loading the 777 everything works fine. My gear retracts and the RAT does not deploy!
The only thing is that this method doesn't seem to work with the C172.
So my default aircraft is the Iris F15E Mudhen Driver then I switch over to the C'Sim777. Its cool this way as I often have a bit of high speed fun in the F15 then land & park then switch over and cruise in the 777!
Below is pics of flying somewhere over the USA @ FL350 and the other departing Sydney bound for Melbourne.. this plane makes for some fantastic flying!  Cheesy

Few seconds after the simulation is start, CTD is occured.
There no trouble when I use 0.6 version, but 0.7 is doesn't works.
Latest video card driver and DX10 is installed.
I don't know what's the problem.

Please help me.

Hi
I want to report some issues & bugs , I had with the 777.
Note:Im pretty sure that the systems are configured correctly.

1.In real plane after landing ,when we brake manualy the auto brake will go to Disarm mode. But, the CS triple7 doesn't do that And just like the default FSX planes it will continue braking until the aircraft comes to a full stop or the auto brake is disarmed manualy.

2.when starting engines , at maximum motoring and when moving the fuel levers to ON, the N2 will go almost to its maximum power and then afew seconds later the engines will be stable. that's not realisic

3.when we want to select a MFD dispaly we have to click twice on the Button to work.

4.we know that Jet engines take a time to spool up , so the airplane companies come up with a sloution:
when you advance the throttle , a white band over the N1 will show you the Approximate N1 RPM when the Engine spools up.
that is not shown in the EICAS and i think it is a bug.

5.In FMC take off page, when filling the required parameters and selecting a take off thrust setting,it shows the selected thrust in EPR.
which is wrong,because currently (since the CS didn't include a RR engine) the GE & PW engines are Controled by N1 RPM.

I wish that these issues will be fixed in the next SP.
Captain Sim team, keep the hard work on the777.we are waiting for a complete 777 , with out issues & bugs. Smiley

Hi All,
   I'm updated to .07 and have been using the "start with FSX C172 method" to get my T7 without the RAT deployed and have been able to get the A/C started very nicely. However I'm having the following issues, the yoke is turned all the way to the right and I have no nose gear steering. I also mentioned in a previous post concerning the fact that the AP won't connect. Any assistance would be appreciated.

Thanks,
 Ed

Hi , you should check the Hydraulics switches on the top left corner of the over head panel. the switches are exactly above the circuit breakers , to the LEFT . they are very far from the Pilot's normal view. try to put them on Normal position & it will be OK.

One of our users has kindly added an additional camera view,especially for the [b]Hydraulic switches .I have copied it here:

You should add it to both the GE and PW models.
Kudos to him for his work. Maybe CS can add it to the next revision.

It would seem that 0.6 is better than 0.7.  In 0.6 some things worked. In 0.7, some systems work better, most work worse:

Landing gear does not retract
VERY poor frame rates (can't get above 10fps)
NAV disp in MAP mode does not display route correctly
APU is on even when showing off
No roll or thrust mode on PFD

Even when operating the C172 first, then loading the 777, it just doesn't perform.  Not exactly sure what to do here other than wait, since it seems that each individual tester has a different result.

I'm going to wait a bit to see if an 0.8 version comes out correcting these bugs...it just isn't flyable again. Cheesy

Dave,

I'm using 0.7 and (so far!) managing to fly from CYQQ Comox, BC, Canada to KSFO San Francisco International - 284 NM to go. Fingers crossed. Wink

Your points:-

1. No problems with landing gear retraction.
2. Frame rates at 38,000 ft: 7.5 - 10.0, which is poor for this computer but usable.
3. NAV display is correct in MAP mode.
4. APU switch on Overhead shows 'OFF'. I can see no other way to tell if the APU is actually 'ON' or 'OFF'. Is there a panel-display for this? I haven't found one.
5. On my setup there are NO modes shown in the horizontal rectangle at the top of the PFD - in 0.7 or any preceding versions.  Sad

I agree that there are still many problems and omissions in 0.7 and I'm just having to grit my teeth and hope they get at least some of them sorted by 0.8.

Meanwhile I'm hoping I can get this thing on the ground safely at KSFO. Roll Eyes

Easiest is just to press Quote at the top right, then delete the parts you don't want quoted. Otherwise enclose what you want quoted in between quote and /quote surrounded by square brackets.

I've been traveling on business for a month and am now back and took a flight with .7 to see what has changed. I uninstalled everything, deleted the CS folders, rebooted and then installed .5 and .7. Here are some observations:

1. FMC is working well although the -BRT+ button on the 2D is still broken.
2. Still have the random initialization issues, such as white textures on panel, gear not retracting, cannot arm spoilers, random switches on or off. If I load my Startup for Complex Aircraft and then the default KSEA flight then I can usually get all the systems working at once. However, when moving to another airport it might work and it might not, usually not.
3. A/T is not disabling Saitek X52 throttle, which causes a clash between the two.
4. Flight idle with VNAV and gear and flaps up is 40% N1, which is far too high to descend normally. Descents must be initiated very early, which is not always desired or possible. This should be 25% N1 until gear or full flaps are extended.
5. Spoilers are still ineffective.
6. PLAN mode is now working in ND although always North Up.
7. Course line on ND sometimes flashes and sometimes disappears.
8. Gear cannot be extended until well below the placarded speed of 270 knots (225?). This, coupled with high flight idle and weak spoilers, makes the plane unnecessarily difficult during approach.
9. APP mode works very well for intercepting and holding the ILS. Still no flare on autoland.
10. VC light switches are working with the anomalies noted by others.
11. Inboard spoilers are supposed to deploy about 15 degrees when full spoilers are selected during flight.

The initialization issues are a no-go for me. Yes, I have completed long flights of 12 hours, but I prefer to test with short flights of under 1 hour. This means a lot of moving and setting up flights, which invariably brings up the initialization issues. So I now wait to see if the next SP corrects these.

I have to say that the visual model on the CS 777 is excellent. I flew in several 777s on my recent trip and CS has definitely captured the exterior look and feel of the 777. Now if the systems can be brought up to the same level . . .

Ben,

My comments on your 'observations':-

1. FMC works well for me. Haven't used the -BRT+ button.
2. Agree with all of this.
3. I use a CH yoke with integral throttle, so cannot comment but A/T seems to override the CH.
4. Haven't checked N1 values when descending; so no comment.
5. Agree.
6. Agree re North Up.
7. Agree re course line flashing.
8. Must check gear extension limits.
9. APP mode works and intercepts localiser. How does APP's function differ from LOC's?
10. Haven't checked for lighting anomalies - too much else to worry about!  Grin
11. Haven't noticed this because I wasn't aware of such details.  Wink

Agree about the initialization problems. You cannot rely on being able to set up the a/c without something being out of whack.

Yes, the visual model is faultless to my eye but much else needs to be done to the many - and complicated - systems. Must be a real pain in the (select your favourite anatomical feature) to the CS team making them all play nicely together. They are to be congratulated for even attempting it!  Smiley

The RAT deploys without any user input (particularly when loading a saved flight), and will not re-stow via the animations panel or the cockpit controls. (This is the same problem the 767 has.)

I'm noticing that, with 0.8, FSX seems to 'hang' every 10-ish seconds with the 777 whilst on the ground entering data in.

Also, RAT is deployed, Experiencing low fps of about 9-10

The light switches in the LR (0.8) are not working. Work in the ER variants, and since the panel of the LR is aliased to the ER (GE) panel, I can only surmise that in the LR .mdl CS forgot to copy over the animation links for the light switches.

Seems to me the 0.8 was a huge effort at eye-candy additions (cabin interior (stunning) - but one that cannot be flown anyhow  Huh), with little progress on systems.

I agree with you Robin. I'm not sure what stage we are at in the development of this plane. About two weeks ago I listed a number of bugs in .7 and only one is fixed in .8. Instead we have the LR in 3 liveries and the cabin, all looking great, but initialization issues and bugs which have been repeatedly mentioned for months are still present.

Perhaps it would be best for CS to tell us when the 777 will reach "feature freeze" stage. Then we can start reporting bugs again when they are ready to focus on them. In my knowledge of software development, the 777 is still in alpha stage if features are still being added. Beta will come when there is a serious attempt to iron out all the bugs.

I agree with all the above. Surely the thing would be to get all the (many!) bugs out of the basic 777-200 before adding extra versions and eye-candy. Once the plane is flyable without major issues, then is the time to tart it up. Wink
There's a long way to go before this bird is ready for V.1.0, so let's hope 0.9 will not be long coming and will address everyone's concerns. Roll Eyes

Can someone confirm if they are having a problem with the RAM not retracting. The unlock button seems to stay on and clicking it will not do anything.

As Mark said, the lights (exterior) are not coming on.

BUT, THE LANDING GEAR ISSUE IS FILNALLY BEHIND AND WE CAN NOW MOVE ON TO THE TESTING OF THE BIRD.

THANK YOU EVERYONE IN CAPTAIN SIM FOR GETTING THE GEAR ISSUE FIXED.

Have you tried to load the cessna or trike at the airport you want and then load the 777? This always works for me

The issue with the RAT for me  is it is off until I takeoff, it apparently engages when the landing gear retracts, Once deployed it won't retract. In an earlier version, when this happened, deploying the RAT actually retracted it. This version nothing retracts it.

For me, at least, the RAT depoys around 80-90kts (when I do not load the default C-172 first (its worked every time for me)). It does not seem to be related to the gear. I notice this because I have performed high speed taxi tests at variable speeds and I would (obviously) not leave the ground, not allowing the gear to retract.

Probably the same situation for me then, as I usually don't look outside until after takeoff, so it may just have seemed it was related to the gear. I'll try the loading Cessna tip, thanks!!

I'm hitting a new problem with this version, (although I believe I read a post reporting it from someone else in an earlier version) The power from the APU seems to timeout like if it was a battery discharging. The APU will appear to start, with the APU generator on, the plane would lose all power after about 10 minutes. Only a fresh aircraft reload would bring it back.

I'm seeing this as well. It can be difficult to judge but you can go to the flight control tab to get it onto a display as a backup.

Yeah, I am aware of the second page, and it is the obvious way to get the exact reading, but it would be nice to have the gauges back. Don't want anything falling into that dark hole lol.

There's definitely something up with the fuel consumption. I'm starting a 2280nmi flight with 232428 pounds of fuel, and the FMC is predicting that I will have 10,700 (10.7) lbs of fuel when I reach my destination. That means that with every 1000lbs of fuel, I can travel 10.28 nautical miles. So with all tanks full, I can travel 3114.84nmi. I'm carrying approximately 41,000lbs of passengers and cargo, which, according this this Boeing specification sheet should give me over 7,000nmi.

So there is certainly something wrong with the fuel consumption, seeing as the CS 777 burns fuel more than twice as fast as the real one.

If there's a mistake here, please tell me, but I'm pretty sure the fuel consumption on the T7 needs to be dialed down a little. Thanks!

ACE Suggestions

Nice work so far. I recommend the following:
1. Ability to enter number of cabin crew, usually 10-14 on a 777-200.
2. Ability to enter number of pilots including relief pilots and jumpseat pilots.
3. Ability to adjust the average weight for each individual on board. This weight should apply to everyone including pilots and cabin crew.
4. Proper number of passengers. It is currently limited to 256. This varies by airline but almost all are above 256. The following is a list of available seats on airlines operating the 200LR:
-Air Austral: 14+34+316=364
-Air Canada: 42+228=270
-Air India: 8+35+195=238
-Emirates: 8+42+236=286
-Ethiopian: 34+287=321
-PIA: 259
-Qatar: 42+217=259
5. Ability to adjust fuel load in each tank.
6. Ability to add the three optional fuel tanks on the 200LR. This would include the weight of the tanks and system plus the fuel. (I do realize no airline has ordered these tanks, but it is still used in Boeing data and there could be operators in the future that order it.)
7. Link the Fleet and Preflight pages so that the settings are remembered when switching back and forth.
8. I recommend four tabs: Fleet, Payload, Fuel and Crew.
9. Save settings individually for each aircraft in fleet.

I've noticed the following issues:

- the gear lever in the VC points up when on ground. So after taking-off I have to push "G" twice to retract the gear.

- same problem with the trim indicator

I see where the lighting issue with the LR model has been addressed BUT I would have thought CS could have fixed the LOGO light switch bringing the PANEL LIGHTS on as well. Just a guess but I'm thinking the panel lights should have been associated with the L;O08_011_SW2 tag and not the L;O14_003_BUT.

Mine is in the down position when on the ground and I first load the 777. If you notice it when at the gate, just press "G" to lower it.
It's part of the checklist to make sure the gear lever is is in the correct position.

My trim levers are slightly forward of the centre position.

Maybe you need to do a reinstall (repair) of v0.9.

Markoz, thanks for your comments. How do you actually proceed setting up the 777 in version 0.9? You wrote: "and I first start the 777." Don't you start with the Cessna any longer?
When I start with the Cessna having switched off everything and the fuel mix 100%, and then load the 777, the latter's battery is on, the thrust levers are forward and the enginge start switches (the ones below the thrust levers) are on, the hydraulics (6 black guarded switches) are on. What's more, there's a sound which reminds me of a muffled standard ring tone of a telephone (on and off, on and off).
When I load the 777 directly, everything is the way it is supposed to be (off and quiet) but for the problem that I can't start the engines after setting up everything. Neither Ctrl-shift-F4 nor Ctrl-E do the trick.
Do you have an idea?
Chris

Regarding the trim, I was referring to what had been mentioned before by tjh876, meaning that the trim indicator was blank, too. (sorry, my reference was not clear)

Does your trim and rudder positions appear? I have a shot here, the two trim gauges for the rudder and elevator trim are black. I have reinstalled, and I do get the Aircraft Initialization green bar.

My default flight is the C172 with everything (except the Avionics Master switch) OFF. This includes the Mixture Lever at 0% (CUT), which means I have to press CTRL+SHIFT+F4 to get the fuel flowing before starting the engines.
Sometimes the 777 throttle levers are at 100%, so I need to pull them back (press F1).
The sound you hear is a warning that the throttles are advanced, but the 777 is not ready for takeoff (gear lever UP or flaps not extended or not extended to the setting entered in the TAKEOFF REF page of the CDU). I'm not sure if incorrect Trim Settings get that strange ringing/buzzing sound.
Someone asked a similar question in the about the APU not starting (No APU start) so take a look at that (it beats writing it all again Wink).

Mark, thanks for your answer.
- That explains the ringing sound. I've noticed that all of a sudden, I think it was in the air after take-off, it stops. Maybe the ringing sound is because of the faulty trim setting as we can't see what the percentage is. Once in the air, the trim setting has to be adjusted in order to fly and from then is correct. So the warning stops.
- Starting the APU hasn't been a problem; it was starting the engines. However, it seems that loading without the Cessna is not an option yet.

Thanks again
Chris

After this latest update 0.9, I get CTD everytime I try to use the CS777 with a default MS flightplan. When I load it at a default airport without a flight plan, everything works fine but as soon as I try to use a flight plan, it crashes again.  Sad

I have currently flown 2513nm, with 4502nm to go and I have 217,000 lbs of fuel remaining. The CDU says that I should have about 88,100 lbs remaining upon landing at KLAX. It has been showing that amount (only varying slightly) since reaching a Cruise Altitude of FL320.

That's actually good to hear, since it looks like I don't have to wait until it's fixed by CS.

What's your payload, and how are you doing your fuel planning? (I'm using fuel.aerotexas.com, which is recommending less fuel than I seem to be needing, probably because it's based off of older, less accurate 777 models.)

Captain Sim 777-200LR (Emirates)
EW: 320,000 pounds
Payload: 58,420 pounds
ZFW: 378,420 pounds
Fuel recommended by fuel.aerotexas.com (Standard Fuel Plan): 311,908 pounds
GTOW: ~690,386 pounds (less fuel consumed for APU usage and taxiing)
Real weather was used and so I had tailwinds most of the way there, but not very strong (20-50 knots).
FL320 for about  60% of the flight, FL340 for the rest. Remaining fuel at KLAX: a little over 77,000 pounds (25%) after taxiing (a long way) to the gate.
Logbook says it took 15.7 hours duration. Flight time, I think, was about 14 hours, but I can't be sure because the clock is funky in the 777.
So I used about 235,000 pounds of fuel from start to finish.

Hello Guys,

I was wondering if Captain Sim is going to add to the ACE an option like on the Boeing 757 and Boeing 767 to remove the window reflections, this kills my frames a lot. When I deactivate it my frames go up a decent mount.

This would be greatly appreciated  Smiley

All right, thanks, Mark! I'm going to try going from CYVR to YSSY today, which the LR should be able to make. We'll see how that goes...

Hi all!

I read some posts about poor FPS back on September (0.8) and was wondering if there is any update on the topic.
I am testing 0.9 and I cant get more than 10fps in a 2gb NVIDIA + 8gb RAM i7 pc.

thanks!

By saying thrust levers forward you mean idle position right? The two switches below the throttles are the fuel cutoff switches. They are different to the engine start switches. On the overhead panel, there is a section with two switches, two knobs underneath and an "autostart" switch below that. To start engines with autostart, make sure the fuel cutoff switches are not cut, as in it is in the up position, throttle idle, Ctrl + Shift + f4, autostart on, and then engine start selector to ground. This should start the engines.  Smiley

By saying thrust levers forward you mean idle position right? The two switches below the throttles are the fuel cutoff switches. They are different to the engine start switches. On the overhead panel, there is a section with two switches, two knobs underneath and an "autostart" switch below that. To start engines with autostart, make sure the fuel cutoff switches are not cut, as in it is in the up position, throttle idle, Ctrl + Shift + f4, autostart on, and then engine start selector to ground. This should start the engines.  Smiley

Sometimes when FSX starts (after selecting the 777 in the Start Menu > Fly Now) the throttle leavers are fully forward (100% thrust).

The continuous beeping noise is because the Landing Gear lever is UP while the plane is on the ground and the gear DOWN. I had this happen today.

EXTERIOR LIGHTS
Captainsim..please take note

Just thought I would make a suggestion on the exterior strobe and nav lights. It would be nice if they were a bit more visible. have a look at this video.

Most Captain Sim products have Nav, Beacon and Strobe lights that are not bright enough. I would also like to see them made brighter. Wink

Hey guys,

Quick question, I installed 0.9 and now the aircraft isn't in my list. I didn't do anything radical, I just uninstalled 0.8 and installed 0.9 and now I cant get the plane to appear in the list. The planes are in my SimObjects folder.
