Tom,

It means connecting to other computers, specifically the MSFS pc.
Dumb question - you do have MSFS running whilst testing the connections?

Hi all,

Just to let you know I had a problem with my previous provider, and my new page is at www.erj145sim.net
Still no progress on the rebuild, but at least I am public again!

Is anyone using the G1 card in combination with a SYS card for the PM MCP? Due to some differences between the 737 and 145 hardware (momentary v toggle switches) I am trying to use the G1 for the F/D switches, and the SYS card for the LEDs and vice versa, but with little success - I now have both ru...

Nat,

Shouldn't you be looking out the window for traffic whilst flying instead of tapping the cabin climb gauge to make it move?

Mind you, if my overhead looked like yours, I might get a bit fixated too :evil:

A very useful post,

I added a couple of links for those of us unfamiliar with the AWG measures, and buying in Europe or elsewhere.

These show conversion tables for AWG to metric cables.

Nice post, Chris, I also have an A340 pilot friend who made the same"you could have got a CPL for that money" comment about the 145. I reckon the folks are just jealous - we don't have to worry about layoffs, rising fuel prices and all the other ills the airline industry has at the moment! In fact, ...

Maurice,

I just installed SP3 on my work pc yesterday, and lots of settings no longer work ( security, HP stuff etc), and had to be re set manually.

Maybe SP3 acts like a new set up "virgin" XP?

Jon, I tried this fix some months back, using the file provided, but although better, did not really improve the problem. Do you think the projectors / focal length may impact on this? I am using 3 Benq DLP projectors at around 3m from the screens, at the default Triplehead resolution. Did you see a...

Burnout

I have some sympathy with all on this - I still have not finished my ERJ145. spent hours playing with interface files, jump in and out of the shell to adjust something with the mouse that doesn't work on the overhead, only to find that the next day it does! I managed 3 days "Dry", managed to walk pa...
