    777 flight model needed...

    Hi, I am building a new flight deck and am looking for a 777 flight model. I
    was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on what to do. Here are the
    problems I am experiencing. I am using FS9 (2004)

    With the Meljet there is a problem with the flight model. No matter what I
    do, there is just not enough thrust for the plane to climb. I have done
    everything accoriding to the instrucitons I believe yet the Meljet model does
    not climb.

    I then tried to PSS 777 model but ran into the problem of how to use the
    patch that disables the MCP, PFD, ND and other controls. The patch seems to be
    for 2002 and when I ran it I got a message that it couldn't find the
    files. Does anyone know how to use the PSS777 model with Project Magenta?
    There also does not appear to be a PSS 777 text file for the CDU that is for
    PSS 777 2004. There is only a FS2002 200ER and PSS does not have the 200ER,
    it has the 200LR or the 300ER both which has different engines than the
    200ER.

    I enjoy this software and really appreciate any suggestions on how to get my
    777 flight model and CDU file text configuration file.

    Thank you as well to Enrico for the many answers he has given me on my set
    up.

    Many thanks,

    Matthew

    Hi Mathiew,

    just search for "Leon Portman" here in this forum. He uploaded some files for
    the new PSS777 to make it work with PM.

    Hope this helps


    Best rgds

    Thank you. This is exactly what I was looking for. Now I just need to
    understand the proper way to disable the PSS panels and point them to the FS9
    default panel.

    Thank you again.

    Hi

    Actualy this is very simple task:

    1. Backup your original panel.cfg in C:\Program Files\Microsoft Games\Flight
    Simulator 9\Aircraft\PSS-B772LR\panel
    2. Open in notepad the original panel.cfg
    3. Change following line
    alias=PSSB77704\panel to
    alias=b777_300\panel

    Hi Leon,

    I was noticing that in the text file for the CDU that you did for the 200LR,
    there was not a flare parameter like

    Flare=25.

    Is this not necessary? If it is not necessary, where does the plane get it's
    flare parameters from?

    Thanks,

    Matthew

    Hi

    Probably it uses some default parameter for the flare.
    I am usualy performing manual landing.

    Leon,

    I flew the PSS 200LR this morning with your 200LR text file and it flew
    without incident. Worked like a charm.

    I was wondering if you knew where I might be able to get a CDU text file for
    the PSS 300ER?

    Thanks for your help.

    Matthew

    Good to hear.
    You can update my 200ER type file with 300ER from the PSS manual. I will try
    to find time to do it by myslef.
