Pfd display.
« on: May 08, 2019, 12:24:11 PM »
Hello everyone.

The display on our FMA has changed:

We had take off N1 now we have TRHUST.

We had at the end of the landing ILS single CH then FD, we now have single CH then AUTOLAND 2.

Our plane is working normally, it's just the displays that are changing.

We handed the original ini file of the mcp but it did not change anything.

Why this change?

Where does it come from?

How to reset the normal mode?

Thank you for your answers.

Pat.

I had not re-read this post.
But can be a beginning of answer:

Thanks Pete

Hi Patt,

Unfortunately I´m running the EICAS on Win7, therefor can´t comment. However I noticed that the "throttle bug" N1 (green V) is missing. Even though THROTTLE BUG = ON is set  in the pfd.ini.
No clue why  :-[

May I anyway throw in my 2ct worth concerning Autoland with PM.

Concerning Autoland I found this:
Just in case you haven´t seen this, old but nevertheless still valid, on mycockpit.org:

http://www.mycockpit.org/forums/showthread.php?t=14382&highlight=autoland

Another thing is that, depending on your aircraft.tx in the CDU Types Dir, you will see on the PFD FMA either CMD only when in autoland mode, provided Trevor´s hints are all set accordingly, or you may see "Land2" and later "Land3".
This depends on what´s been set in the a.m. aircraft.txt file (at the very end of file)
It´s obviously a Boeing option. Therefor you my change it according to your liking:

Aircraft.txt example from PM´s flight model B737-800 for P3Dv4:

Original setting showing CMD only:
ACMD1=CMD
ACMD2=FD
ACMD3=CMD
ACMD4=CMD     
ACMD5=SINGLE CH

Mod this if required to:

ACMD3=LAND2
ACMD4=LAND3

 
Hope it helps you a bit further.

Best rgds and always 3 greens

Pete
