Also, is there a map that I can look at on FSX to plan a route and how is this done? Undecided

I use Flight Sim Commander 9 to get the SID, STAR, Transitions, and to help figure out the High Altitude Airways with connecting waypoints.

You can try RouteFinder (free version) to create routes for you. You will have to figure out the SID STAR, which can be difficult though (FSC9 comes in handy for finding the correct SID and STAR).

Thank you VERY MUCH! Smiley And, how do you pull up the map in FSX during flight, like , in this tutorial, he pulled up the map to find the ILS #s, how is this done?  Undecided

Yes it will work, but you cannot save the Flight Plans. I'm not sure what other features are unavailable in the demo. I saw a post by someone who only used the demo version (for a very long time) and he was very happy with it. It doesn't work within FS. It is a separate program, but the database is gathered from FS9, FSX and/or P3D. Mine is set for both FSX and P3D (I have a shortcut to open it for whichever Flight Sim version I'm using at the time).

As I said before, I only use FSC9 (currently v9.2.2) to provide me with the info needed (jet airways with linking waypoints AND SID, STAR and TRANS) to enter in the route. So on long routes, I have a lot of jet airways and waypoints to enter, but it is definitely better than adding every single waypoint.

I use FSX in Windowed mode, never Full Screen, so I just click on FSC9 in the Taskbar. The ILS frequency should be added automatically upon selecting an ILS runway in the ARR screen.

I have also added the default GPS 500 in the CS757! I removed the Simicon (SHIFT+2) for the iYOKE and replaced it with the default fs9gps!gps_500. Like this:

[Window01]
size_mm=48, 256
background_color=1,1,1
position=6
visible=1
zorder=99
ident=12101
gauge00=Captain_Sim.200!iAnim,    0,   0, 24, 32
gauge01=Captain_Sim.200!iCDU,     0,  32, 24, 32
gauge02=Captain_Sim.200!iEfis,    0,  64, 24, 32
gauge03=Captain_Sim.200!iRadio,   0,  96, 24, 32
gauge04=SimIcons1024!GPS Icon,    0, 128, 24, 32 //gauge04=Captain_Sim.200!iYoke,    0, 128, 24, 32
gauge05=Captain_Sim.200!iNote,    0, 160, 24, 32
gauge06=Captain_Sim.200!iExtPw,   0, 192, 24, 32
gauge07=Captain_Sim.200!iExit,    0, 224, 24, 32
gauge08=Captain_Sim.200!iOH,     24,   0, 24, 32
gauge09=Captain_Sim.200!iLight,  24,  32, 24, 32
gauge10=Captain_Sim.200!iAP,     24,  64, 24, 32
gauge11=Captain_Sim.200!iIRS,    24,  96, 24, 32
gauge12=Captain_Sim.200!iP,      24, 128, 24, 32
gauge13=Captain_Sim.200!iATC,    24, 160, 24, 32
gauge14=Captain_Sim.200!iExtBAir,24, 192, 24, 32
gauge15=Captain_Sim.200!iRDR,    24, 224, 24, 32


I then replaced the [Window37] completely with this:

[Window37]
Background_color=0,0,0
size_mm=456,378
Position=7
visible=0
ident=GPS_PANEL
gauge00=fs9gps!gps_500, 0, 0, 456, 378


To open the GPS, I press SHIFT+2, then click on the GPS icon to open the GPS.


It looks like this. See the GPS Icon next to the P on the Simicon Panel (I forgot to highlight it before uploading the image Sad).

Edited:
I forgot to include that I changed Window37=Yoke to Window37=GPS under [Window Titles]
Like this:

[Window Titles]
Window00=Main Panel
...
Window37=GPS
...
Window43=Pedestal Panel

Sorry Sad

In the FSX\SimObjects\Airplanes\CS_B757-200\panel folder.

1. Backup the panel.cfg before modifying it!
2. Open the panel.cfg with Notepad.
3. Search for Window37. When you find this: Window37=Yoke, replace it with this: Window37=GPS
4. Search for [Window01] (in the [ ]), and change gauge04 from this: gauge04=Captain_Sim.200!iYoke,    0, 128, 24, 32 to this: gauge04=SimIcons1024!GPS Icon,    0, 128, 24, 32
5. Search for Window37 again, and when you reach the [Window37] (in the [ ]), replace this:

[Window37]
Background_color=0,0,0
size_mm=528, 394
window_pos=0.098, 0.70
visible=1
zorder=5
ident=10143
nomenu=0
gauge00=Captain_Sim.b757!CP_Yoke,  0,0,528,394


with this:

[Window37]
Background_color=0,0,0
size_mm=456,378
Position=7
visible=0
ident=GPS_PANEL
gauge00=fs9gps!gps_500, 0, 0, 456, 378


Now SAVE IT. Next time you ar flying the 757-200, press SHIFT+2 and click on the GPS Icon to bring the fs9gps!gps_500.

If you get stuck, I'll make a copy of mine available to download.

I know I'm of the dummies' tribe, but I can't understand why ev'rytime I insert a Route in the FMC and follow the procedures in inseting data, it's always missing the landing path (or the path from the last leg to de STAR point and Runway. I mean, my route is correct from takeoff to the last leg. I act in the same way on the other 737 and it works perfectly. Do I miss some point on the Captain Sim FMC? I tried on the 757 and 767 with the same result. It's frustrating.
Thanks for any help

It's a bug. If you take a look at my fixes for the same problems in 767 FMC...

Fix for missing T/D in CDU/FMS

Fix for missing end of route.

They will also work for the 757 FMC. Wink

These fixes can sometimes take a few tries to get them to hold, so if you persevere, you will get there in the end.

Thanks, I keep coming back to this tutorial.

Are there any good flight planners for the 757?  I see PPFX claims support, but it's not working or not implemented.  I need to do NAT planning that has an updated nav database.

Lastly, I cannot create new topics, how can I fix that?

I use both PFPX and FSC9 to plan routes. Because neither of them save to the Captain Sim .rt format, I tend to enter the route manually. Sometimes I export/save the routes created in these programs to FSX .pln format and load them into the FMC. If I'm going to load them, I don't normally export/save them with SID or STAR/Approach, I add them using the FMC.

You need reach 50 posts before you'll be able to create a new topic. Wink
