How do you select one of the 3 options in panel settings cfg.
C&D or APU or ready to fly ? I dont see anything in the FMS??

On the CDU, click on MENU > Options (LSK5R) > States (LSK1R) > Then choose from Cold and Dark (LSK1L), On APU (LSK2L), Ready for Takeoff (LSK3L), or click on Custom States (LSK6R) so you can select you own saved panel states if you have any.

ANOTHER Panel State Query
Reply #16 - Jul 14th, 2018 at 11:24pm

I have made a Panel State that is Cold and Dark. I have set Menu|Setup|Options|Load Default Panel State to On (along with all other Options I want). I then load my Cold and Dark panel state and the view I desire (Capt Seat). I save the Scenario. If I load the Scenario it all works as desired. HOWEVER, I would like to load ANYWHERE and still have the same Panel State (Cold and Dark) and the same view (the view at least works!).

How do I make MY Panel State the Default that loads regardless of where I choose to start?

Cheers

Tutorial video: https://screencast-o-matic.com/watch/cF1vnkFZG2

1) CDU: Menu >> Setup >> Options >> Page 2 >> Load Default Panel State: On
2) press EXEC
3) setup the state of your wish
4) CDU: Menu >> Setup >> States >> Custom States
5) type 'DEFAULT' in scratchpad
6) select line with NEW STATE prompt
7) press EXEC

The above has nothing to do with CAMERA (VIEW) position which is always saved with the SCENARIO (the .fxml) file.

Interesting. How do you perform setup 4 (CDU) if you chose C&D in step 3 which makes BAT off and CDU unpowered?

No power=No CDU obviously.

If you want to set the C&D state as the default state:
1. CDU: Menu >> Setup >> Options >> Page 2 >> Load Default Panel State: On
2. press EXEC
3. Rename a copy of the ...p3dv4\Captain_Sim\757-III\panel\basic\COLD AND DARK.cfg file into DEFAULT.cfg.
4. Replace original ...p3dv4\Captain_Sim\757-III\panel\custom\DEFAULT.cfg file with the file you made in #3.

Ok, this method works. However this C&D state has APU knob at ON position while it should be OFF. Can you provide update cfg?

Try modifying the following entry in the DEFAULT.cfg (or COLD AND DARK.cfg)

From O10_003_GL3=1 to O10_003_GL3=0

I found this entry right at the top of the COLD AND DARK.cfg Wink
