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 NGX, I guess this is also subject to change..... Cheesy

May we see fullscreen (including windows taskbar) screenshots of the 777 at 9fps and the NGX 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.

Dear Marekoz,

how do you load your plane? Start FSX, select the CS777 KSEA flight, than FLY and then how do you switch on the systems? My displays are all black.

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

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

Two of the displays are black. So I need to switch the left inner and right inner PDs to NAV, then all the displays are on (see attached image).

Is this the KSEA flight from our pack?
What is your FSX default flight/aircraft?

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:

I just flew 4 flights KLAX-KLAS no problems but one. ( Way points aren't showing, No biggie, I'll figure it out  ) Just reading all the help posts here got me flying.
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..
Flys great, Lands great.
I'm a happy camper  Grin Cheesy

Hello !
Congratulation for the EFB ! I love thea easy way we have to change it !

Now I created a new section called : Documentations and put in the CS 777 doc ! Smiley

That could be great if we can put PDF directly !

The provided saved flight crashes FSX for me so can't use that, also I have no nose wheel steering, have turned everything I can find on, on the overhead, other controls seem fine (ailerons, elevators 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 ?

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.

One of the 1st things I noted in V 0.201 is you forgot to comment out Window06=CDU in the panel.cfg file hense the black square at the bottom of the 2D display.

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?

to the systems

The performance needs to improve, A LOT!

50% more would be kinda acceptable.

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

My landing gear is still not picking up, even with all the hydraulic pumps connected.

I don't quite understand why guys like your self and Markoz are having so many problems with the landing gear. I must lave completed 25 to 30 flight cycles now from varying locations and not a single hiccup or failure. Would be interesting to hear CS's take on this.  Undecided

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.

Linden

They work fine for me. Is this at a particular airport and/or gate or have you tried this at different airports?

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 :/

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.

I'm not exactly new to beta testing have done a bit for Flight1. How do I get the displays to display: ; latest SP, loaded from FSX startup flight, all systems seem to be on, engines running, TO IAS, etc set.

Thanks.

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?

Thank you.

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
station_load.2=1000,0,0,3,Crew
station_load.3=30000, 0, 0, 3, Passenger
station_load.4=999, 40, 0, -2, Container
station_load.5=999, 47, 0, -2, Container
station_load.6=999, -36, 0, -2, Container
station_load.7=999, -28, 0, -2, Container
station_load.8=999, 40, 0, -2, Container
station_load.9=999, 47, 0, -2, Container
station_load.10=999, -36, 0, -2, Container
station_load.11=999, -28, 0, -2, Container

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.

+ 1

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.

I haven't been able to get my gear to retract at all with 0.6.  And the RAT is deployed....   Huh

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.

From my experience it's on the takeoff roll.

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,

Thanks, that worked quite well. I wasn't having the gear problem, but the RAT was constantly deploying.

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 can read typos, so I didn't care to comment on spelling mistakes.

Besides. We can all make them no matter how hard we try not to. Wink

Has the extremely slow engine start-up been reported yet? The fan blades spin really slowly then on combustion, immediately accelerate to idle speed in less than a second 0_o weird or what!

You're just a kid, pride! I'm 80 and if you must make a spelling mistake for 'full', try 'phuq' - it's less likely to get you banned from this forum.  Grin Grin Grin

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

I'm getting confused with all the versions I now have,and I keep them all just in case.I recently upgraded to windows 7 64 bit,and I'm not sure what security level should be set during installation.Also,if reinstalling,should we delete everything,and what version should we start from before we enter the land of OZ. I wonder if my installers are corrupted. Sad Sad Sad

If they were going to ban you for that, they already would have. So I'm sure you're safe now. Wink

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 Cry Cry Cry

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.

The FSX fuel program shows 42,000 Lbs That is the fuel capasity of the -300er. Weird

42,000 pounds??? That's not right. The CS 777-200's in my FSX have 302,974 pounds of fuel. Undecided
