Sorry but not a chance. The radar is a brand new 64-bit code from scratch.

Dear Captain Sim:
I purchased the 777 yesterday and have spent some time learning the aircraft. I was pleased, but surprised, to see the 777 for FSX has Terrain Radar capability. Yet the newer 757 for FSX does not, as per our conversation above. I am writing to ask why this is so. Why wasn't the 777 terrain radar code simply ported over to the 757 to provide that capability? Would you consider that soon? Sad

No, unfortunately.
The terrain radar in the 777 doesn't make any difference since the older 757-II for FSX (2006) has the terrain radar as well.

The 757-III for FSX is a brand new 64-bit 757-III code downgraded to 32-bit as per numerous request. That's the only reason the 757-III for FSX even exists.

We got to move forward, not backwards. Any 32-bit development is over  https://www.captainsim.org/forum/csf.pl?num=1539357669

Had I known that I would have purchased the earlier version. Terrain is a hugely important capability unless you are flying Saudi Arabia where the terrain is flat. Angry

Well, to ALCON, I found a very nice solution to the lack of the terrain radar for FSX. I own and use the Flight1 GTN, which has a very nice TAWS feature. I use it in a pop up sort of like a "Flight Bag". Not only does it provide the much needed Terrain Radar, but it also provides the approach plates and arrivals and departures for US airports. The Terrain Radar works everywhere. Cool
Problem solved.
