    Re: PM MCP - CP Flight - PMDG software

    Hi,

    Starting the CPFlight equipment with PM MCP is not the issue. Setting the
    mcp.ini to accept the MCP and EFIS was the easy part.

    Both PM MCP and the CPFlight MCP and EFIS work when I launch MS default
    B737.

    The trouble begins when I try to use it with the mods I downloaded from Bob
    Scott to make the EFIS and MCP work with the PMDG B737 600 through 900
    series.

    I am sure I missed steps (as described above) but I do not know where, so I
    would like to see some examples.

    Thanks a lot for your replies though!

    Regards, Ferry

    RE: PM MCP - CP Flight - PMDG software

    I only used the PMDG 737-700 with Bob's mods and it worked fine with the
    CPFlight MCP and EICAS, I really have no idea and hope someone can chime in
    to help you, sorry...

    RE: PM MCP - CP Flight - PMDG software

    Hi Ferry,

    I think that there are 2 things to consider here:

    1. If you want to use the CP Flight modules (EFIS and MCP)
    with PMDG, you don't need PM MCP software. You just install
    FS (2002 or 2004), add PMDG (I only have experience with
    the -700 series, I don't have the -800/900 series), connect
    the EFIS and MCP, install cpflighttools109 and install patch4 or patch5.
    That's what I did before I bought PM software.
    The only problem is that not all EFIS functions are avialable
    like Flight Vector Path and Meters buttons (and maybe more
    that I am not even aware of).

    To fly, you start FS, select a saved Cold&Dark PMDG 737
    (I have never understood why people first load a cold&dark
    cessna, and then change to PMDG, I always start with the
    PMDG right away), and then start FS_COM. Be sure to
    execute the patch, e.g. copy the keyboard.ini to the
    right directories.

    If this explanation is not clear, can you please explain
    what errors you get, or what problem you have?

    2. If you want to build a cockpit (that's what I am doing
    now), you will probably need the whole PM set of software.
    I am now halfway installing, I have FS2004 with PMDG on my
    main machine, connected EFIS and MCP, and installed PM MCP
    on it. At first that did not work very well but I have now
    installed newer versions of software, installed patches,
    and I hope that it works better now.
    I first start FS2004, select a previously saved PMDG flight
    (Cold&dark at a gate on Schiphol) and then start PM MCP.
    The PM MCP automatically starts FS_COM or some other interface to the
    hardware, because after having started
    the PM MCP, the CP Flight hardware MCP wakes up, displays
    the release version of the firmware (1.06) and shows the
    default heading and altitude (same as PM MCP is showing).

    If this is what you want, please bear with me because I am
    still busy installing everything.

    I hope this helps, if not maybe you better get in touch
    with me so we can try to sort things out, then post
    our final results here...
