I'm probably missing something obvious here, but I'm having issues with the flight controls on the 777.  Running 1.6 on FSXSE, just installed clean.

I'm having issues trying to taxi, and while in flight, the MCP will not do much other than A/T.  When I go to the FCTL screen to see the current state of my control surfaces, it appears that the Fly By Wire system is not working as expected.  While on the ground, it is in Direct mode with all surfaces showing an orange X.  In the air, the Flt Ctrl Mode shows Secondary with only some of the surfaces showing their position.

Is this related to the MCP control issues and taxiing issues, or am I over-thinking this?

Thanks!

Hy,

I have just installed my brand new CS777 1.6 version and it´s a good flyable airplane. Cool
But, I´m having some problems with the radiostak, were I can´t set up a frequency. I can turn the knobs, but no changes in the displays, neither in the captain radiostack, neither in th FO radiostack.

Due this problem, my simulator is very quiet, because I can´t hear the ATC communications at all....

Any ideas?

Tks !

FSX Steam / CS B777 1.7 issue report

1. Interior lights aren't working.

2. Engines went full thrust while startup.

3. Aircraft often stall at low speed with autothrottle engaged.

Other than that, great work!

1. The lights are working: http://screencast-o-matic.com/watch/cDnUD01Q8y
2. This is a compromise to fix the more important issue.
If you turn Cold-and-Darkon Icons Control panel (Shift+2), [E] and press AVAIL button on overhead you will be able to start engines by Ctrl+E.
3. We need the complete information on it to consider the issue, Customer Support System should be used for this.

The lights are working like they should in my FSX Steam Edition.

The throttles were at IDLE when I loaded the 777-200ER_GE into FSX-SE. I think your FSX-SE saved start up flight must have the throttles set to FULL throttle, or you joystick/yoke throttles were pushed forward.

3. Aircraft often stall at low speed with autothrottle engaged.
Even using the 10% reduce throttles for takeoff and climb, the 777-200ER_GE maintained the climb from the start without stalling, but it might have if I had raised the nose too high (greater than a 3000fpm climb at takeoff).

So the 777 Captain in FSX-SE is working just like it works in FSX.

The TCAS shows me after take off and the whole flight long a Traffic in front of me, but there is none. I think the TCAS shows me the 777 it self as a Traffic. How can i slove it? The aircraft warns me for traffic and tells me to climb.  Undecided

When flying the 777 I select the radios (Shift-9), then choose TA ONLY rather than TA/RA on the rotating knob.

Now i have to do that too, but on the version 1.6 i selected every time TA/RA and there was no warning of traffic. The display it self show me traffic in front of me. It is strange... When i select only TA it shows me the traffic on the display. When there is more traffic it is confusing. Undecided

I have the same issue with the TCAS. I wonder what can cause the "ghost"-traffic since FSX doesn't have the avatar mode like p3d.

This TCAS problem (777 seeing itself as traffic) is known since february when V1.7  came out, that is 4 month ago  Why is it NOT corrected?  Are the DEVELOPPERS  all DEAD or what ?  Wink

I can reassure everybody, the developpers are still living !  Smiley
They sent me a patch today for testing.
TCAS works PERFECTLY now (at least with Fsx-Sp2).
I suppose the patch will be published shortly.

Guy, yes, we are still here Smiley Thank you and Mark for testing the fix for us. We fixed both the issue with TCAS and with the message "SPEEDBRAKE extended" not appearing on EICAS in the AIR if thrust levers are not closed.

Please download and install (double click) the file, no need to reinstall the product!
- for FSX/SE http://www.captainsim.com/tools/x777/sp/csx772_1710.exe
- for P3D v2/v3 http://www.captainsim.com/tools/x777/sp/csz772_1710.exe

Feedback is highly appreciated!

I got it too, and it works properly for me in both FSX with Acceleration, and P3D v3.3.

And as we can see, the patches have been released.

Thanks Captain Sim. Smiley Grin

I can confirm that the message "SPEEDBRAKE EXTENDED" appears now CORRECTLY in the air when speedbrake extended and thrustlevers not closed.   Smiley
